ITT: What the actual fuck am I listening to? core
What? That album is very straightforward.
straightforward, yes, but batshit insane
How do you mean? Is it the rhythms, the themes/lyrics, the big suit?
You're in a big suit
Maybe it's insane if you have listened to about 5 albums in your lifetime
The Soy is strong in this thread.
There's no way you find this album insane. It's just post-punk mixed with afrobeat
It's literally just an 80s pop album. My fucking mom listens to Talking Heads. They used to play "Once In A Lifetime" several times an hour on MTV.
He's right you know. It's a pop album.
I think you mean to another album
Why such a big suit?
these albums are insane. Talking heads are only insane if you're a baby just discovering music.
Your mom has better taste than you.
I doubt anybody, at anytime has considered Pink Moon to be insanecore.
Tonetta 777 is pretty good. Only thing on that chart I've listened to.
How the fuck is Pink Moon or Sung Tongs even romotely on the same level as Trout Mask Replica and Faust's s/t? Especially Pink Moon. What the fuck?
I don't think I've ever seen anyone on Sup Forums admit to being this much of a pleb
Just an 80s pop album
This doesn’t scream ignorance to you?
its funky fresh user what are you talking about
it is an 80's pop album kek
These posts scream underage. You realize they played the music video for "Once In A Lifetime" all the fucking time on MTV, right? The fucking Muppets parodied it. It's not obscure or underground at all. Anybody who lived in the 80s knows that song like the back of their hand. Same goes for "Burning Down The House" and probably, to a lesser extent, "Psycho Killer."
The Talking Heads were popular. Get over it.
Lol I never denied that they where popular. But so are Neutral Milk Hotel for god’s sake. That doesn’t make it pop music.
what is by your definition "pop music"
Dude, it was literally a top 40 album. It was in the fucking top 40.
TAKE A LOOK AT THESE DUBS
So was To Be Kind
Simple, marketable music designed for mainstream appeal.
He believes pop music = top 40 manufactured shit
Basically, he's fucking retarded
Swans aren't underground either. Is that your metric for what's underground? Fucking Swans?
That being said, they don't play Swans all over TV and the radio. You couldn't escape "Once In A Lifetime" in the 80s. It was all over the fucking radio and TV.
neutral milk hotel is pop music lol
Most Pre-Last Rights Skinny Puppy
I mean, if I were being a hipster asshole I would make the argument that anything that isn't folk or art music could be considered "pop," but I'm not even going that far. Talking Heads were fucking top 40 music.
not being a hipster asshole, but neutral milk hotel is pop lol.
they're psychedelic pop, probably leaning less than lots of their labelmates but they are pretty pop, as was the entire elephant6 collective.
I'M A GOVERNMENT DUB
Hipsters discovering Fela Kuti
it's another "Sup Forums thinks they're special for listening to literal pop music" thread
