His opinions don't really make any sense to me. He just tells you how he feels and acts like it's a fact or something.

His attitude/personality is also sickening. I would define his music taste as "Twittercore". He actually has very low-brow taste in music

I recently watched an old review of his (anamanaguchi - airbrushed) and back then he was a lot more self-aware, or up front about the fact that he's just trying to turn you onto music he likes. He fancies himself a kind of academic now doing talks at colleges and shit (probably some entry level bullshit music appreciation class).

He gave Death Grips a 10. That should be enough to make him fuck off.

He fancies himself a kind of academic now doing talks at colleges and shit (probably some entry level bullshit music appreciation class).

Dude this is what blows my fucking mind. He acts like he is a sophisticated music expert, doing a high-brow analysis of every piece of garbage the faux-underground music community shits out.

I'm a professional classical musician, and his reviews nearly sound like 13 year old babble to me. He'll describe an album with words like "Grimy/punchy" like that even means anything.

Then he'll try to put the album into a historical context and just look at it in this really pretentious yet basic-bitch lense. Almost like he's reading off of a buzzfeed article about the album or something.

The guy truly makes me sick. Not even the fact that I think his taste in music is bad, but his attitude where he actually thinks that what he is saying is educational or something.

Agree. I’m also a classical musician and to ne his reviews just sounds like a three year old describing music. He doesn’t even explain why the music is good/bad, just spouts buzzwords and talk about the lyrics.

I like when he talks about the lyrics and tries to put it into historical context, usually by referring to how the music is actually rooted in an obscure 1980's underground movement in britain or some shit

He's a fucking brainlet and so are his viewers. Also a crypto-fat fuck

Nicholas Collins

You’ve got the smug ‘tude. I can’t undo a decades worth of brainwashing in one night though. Classical training is akin to wine tasting. It’s highbrow and in a blind study the experts can’t tell the difference between a 10 or 1000 dollar bottle.

You know why.. because it’s about the product. If it sounds good it doesn’t matter if you can break it down into a million pieces because the artist wasn’t even thinking about them like that. The artist just sits there and composed what’s happening in the moment

What you just wrote is pure gibberish. Can you re-write that in English?

Classical training is brainwashing!
What the fuck are you talking about. Classical training is just learning technique and theory.

Lmao again, what are you trying to say?

Wyatt Barnes

Correct.

The final nail in the coffin for me was when he gave Depression Cherry a 6. And he also said there wasn’t any reverb on the album. I mean did he even listen to it?

Brayden Powell

I agree with you both as well. This is something that really gets on my nerves about his reviews. His descriptions are all buzzwords and he never really talks about the actual music.

I am not a classical musician like you guys, but I have been playing guitar for many years. It would be nice to see him talk a little bit more about the music theory behind a song instead of it just being "punchy". I think he doesn't actually know anything about music, which is pretty mind-blowing considering the fact that he is the "internet's busiest music nerd".

This isn't an accurate description of his attitude at all. Y'all know this is just his opinion, right?
Classical training is for insecure/gullible people who come out of their training under the impression that Jill Scott is a bad singer.

It’s a 10 for me, probably the best album of the decade. The melodies, chord progressions and general sound of it is fucking gorgeous.

I can see why someone would think it’s kinda slow and whatnot, but a 6 is just wrong.

Luis Sanchez

I'm plenty pretentious, I can't say I'm really ashamed of it. I agree with the posters on here saying his knowledge of music theory doesn't translate proportionally with his videos, but they don't have to watch him. They can even make videos to rebuke him directly, or recommend better Youtubers. Living in a relatively free first-world society is dope like that. But, while few choose to be proactive when it comes to defending their principles, most choose to circle jerk.

I don't really know what I'm replying to, I'm drunk.

Logan Myers

His political views are mostly decent and well informed, despite the vast amounts of alt-right/white supremacist propaganda and bro-losophers dominating Youtube these days. Tastewise, he's meh. I'd rather listen to Chris Ott discuss music.

Never said he did, but classical and pop are not at all mutually exclusive. Classical is just ooo expanded

I'm just not seeing this ego that you're seeing. If he thought highly of himself, he wouldn't do joke segments like Not Good and the yunoreview videos. Most of his reviews are under 10 minutes long.

I'm talking about his lectures/speaking tours. Have you watched any? They are bad.

Everyone has opinions. Not everyone goes on a speaking tour.

Robert Lee
Robert Lee

The original appeal of Fantano was that he was a regular guy who seriously loved music, and he would review all kinds of different music and give them a fair shake. That was originally the frame of his videos. Cool idea, I liked that and I like hearing regular people’s opinions on things.

Now the frame of his videos is that he is a true and tried music critic who is far above it all. Most albums are not meta enough for him and not as self-aware as he himself is. He has lost any perspective in terms of his actual understanding of music. He had this entire persona going while he is still just a regular guy who doesn’t know dick about music.

Now, it gets worse, he’s starting to venture outside of music (which he already knows nothing about) and inserting his worthless opinion into other subjects.

The guy is fucking insufferable.

Nathaniel Gomez
Nathaniel Gomez

No, I didn't watch those because they aren't on his channel. I thought we were talking about his reviews. I guess you may have a point. Although I won't knock the guy for finding a new source of income besides Youtube. Especially if those venues were inviting him to come, which I assume is true of the colleges.

Cooper Wood

Thomas Hall

this is the one I'm thinking of. They did invite him. youtube.com/watch?v=0KzKWtlc0nk&t=4211s

I wouldn't judge him that harshly personally. It does seem like his takes are coming from a different headspace now, a sort of pitchforky headspace, less raw emotion. His older reviews are just better. But people change, ideas change. Is what it is. I tolerate his politics, agree with him on some and disagree on others.

Levi Gray
Levi Gray

Fuck me is it worth watching? I can take that with me to work on Friday if it's at least funny. I'm not up for watching an hour and a half just to confirm whether or not he's a tool now. The fact that they invited him sort of forgives whatever annoying shit he might say, though.

I can't take people who make this kind of complaint seriously. Do you want him to insert the phrase "in my opinion" into every one of his sentences?

Adrian Miller
Adrian Miller

he’s starting to venture outside of music (which he already knows nothing about)
the dude has two channels one on music and one about himself, it is literally named "fantano". he would never record a video, for example, about killer mike's gun ownership on tnd, and if you don't agree with what he is saying outside of his musical opinion just don't subscribe to fantano. also, despite the fact I don't agree with some the shit he says on fantano, i don't think he doesn't have the right to branch out onto stuff that interests him. the only critique i can give him is that he is a bit condescending and snobbish at times, and forgets that he has a very large platform he easily influences and should tread lightly on certain topics, otherwise, someone will just call him out (like fader did)

Logan Jackson

Why does he hate Chris Brown so much? I've only heard the guy featured in some songs and he wasn't that bad.
