    I feel like Nujabes covers aren't really supposed to be "things" so much as visual representations of the music on the album. Compared to Metaphorical Music, Modal Soul has always felt more down to earth, so to speak, hence the reddish clay colored cover...... Or I could just be talking out my ass, who knows?

    It's actually one of my favorite tracks. It's really hard to put the meaning of it into words, though. I always kind of felt like it belonged earlier in the album than it is. There is sort of two subjects. On one hand, Del is laying out his opinion of hip-hop as a genre and music as a whole. Namely, that it doesn't get the respect it deserves as an art form, and that a big part of that is because it is becoming watered down by people who are trying to get into hip-hop for the wrong reasons (money). It's important to remember that the concept of the album is that it takes place in a future where hip-hop is now over 1000 year old genre, and is really the only means of expression against the oppressive government. The other major theme in the song is about how much emphasis we, as a society, put on race. Until race ceases to become one of the primary means by which we identify people, there can't ever be true equality.

    I see Billy as being like, idk more straightorward talking about issues of a 16 year old kid with art interest, where Kurt doesn't feel the need to have silly things describe things. Billy is great and more traditional pop for songwriting,...which is odd considering most consider Kurt a pop songwriter, which I guess coomes from his memorable hooks. But I think that Kurt is a lot more about emotion anyway since his lyrics are pretty much just nothing anyway.

    I will say that rock musicians beat anyone on depth of shit, gospel, William Butler Yeats or anyone. And that's why rock music is probably my favorite type of art. Now lyrical depth, that's what rock musicians can be fantastic at, but actual lyricism as far as word functions and things, I see them often being second rate.

    I completely agree with you, and I think that rock lyrics are often very touching and inspiring and emotional etc, and I love a lot of lyrics in rock music but that doesn't mean I give them a lot of artistic credit necessarily. I mean..name a rock lyricist that uses anything besides metaphor, simile or allusion in their lyrics, what about actual sound devices like alliteration or something? I think that rock lyrics can be touching and if they are that's what makes them good, but as far as artful use of words i don't really know. Maybe I'm reading too deep into it.

    I AM BY NO MEANS A POETRY EXPERT by the way

    Junio 2013
  • PlzDontBan

    There's a ton of artists who have good words, but most rock imagery is a little weak and forced and the metaphors and similes and sound devices are weak as hell tbh. I guess there's a lot of artists that have good ballad writing skills but to me that's not really a great form of poetry as its more based on the message than substance. Tim Buckley comes to mind for that.

    Junio 2013
  • PlzDontBan

    A lot of it is just really cliche and trying to be deep or cryptic but really has no poetic devices, which you'll find in a lot of hip hop's tongue twisters. That's why for instance, there's a magazine that labels the Mountain Goats singer (too lazy to look it up) the best non rap lyricist. I guess I'd throw Kurt into that mix actually for a bunch of nonsensical bullshit that's really interesting and can resonate with me without even meaning anything.

    I think that people give it too much credit for its songwriting really, I don't think that there's anything special about it for the most part. That is if you're just talking about lyrics, the actual music is often incredible obviously. AS far as lyricists, Van Morrison, Morrisey at times, Nick Drake (I consider contemporary folk as a derivative of rock music), Mikael Akerfeldt, Doug Martsch

    Junio 2013

    Nah I don't think he is, but i'm obviously a big fan of the band. I don't really think many rock musicians are good songwriters, i think that maybe like...idk Van Morrison, Dylan etc are good songwriters but not exceptional. I'm not claiming to be a huge poetry buff or anything but I just don't think rock is notable for its songwriting. Hip hop is though I think.

    Pretty good. Junior year is a little stressful but its way better to be an upperclassman. I've definitely moved away from just listening to hip hop to add a lot of indie and 90s rock. (But that new Brother Ali album was fucking amazing.) What's up with you?

    The thing to remember is, that by showing up on the list at all, I'm saying that they're good albums that I enjoyed and most of the criticisms for all of them are going to be fairly minor. I didn't really mean for it to be a "this album is better than this one" type of deal, so much as a "here's 50 great albums, if you haven't heard any of them, check them out."

    Mostly Natti. He didn't do that awful on it, but he got show up by Deacon on almost every track. The lack of parity between the two MCs kind of through the whole thing off kilter for me. I was kind of thrown off by it the first time I heard it too, after hearing Will Rap for Food.

    Junio 2012

    God Loves Ugly isn't ahead of The Eminem Show or Pick a Bigger Weapon. As for Labor Days, it's kind of a toss up. From a purely technical standpoint, Aesop is much better than Slug is, but really it's subject matter that pushes God Loves Ugly ahead in my mind. The whole blue collar labor thing is an interesting concept, but I don't think Aesop pulled it off exceptionally well. Slug, meanwhile, is one of the most down to earth, relatable rappers you'll ever find. That and I'm from Minnesota, so I'm obligated to give Atmosphere props at every opportunity.

    Junio 2012

    I'll be honest, a lot of the order was kind of dictated by what was around it. It's a lot easier to compare albums that are at least kind of similar to each other, so they tended to get clumped together (like Labor Days, God Loves Ugly, Both Sides of the Brain and Hell's Winter). It's a lot harder to compare an album like Hell's Winter to say, The Mouse and The Mask.

    I can honestly not care less about it, so I don't have much of an opinion on it. Seems pointless, like most beefs.

    Yo if you've got any free time could you answer these questions for a college project i'm doing? (also nice brother ali and neutral milk plays) 1. Does a record label influence your interest in an artist? 2. Is there a particular record label you are most interested in? 3. Will you often look into what record label an artist you like is associated with? 4. Do you think it is important to support an independent label as oppose to a major? 5. apart from electronic and hip hop music what other genre’s influence you? 6. What format of buying music do you prefer? (digital, cd’s, vinyl) 7. What hip hop/ electronic/ trip hop/ ambient artists would you like to hear more artists like?
