Never met them, but they're originally from very close to where I grew up. I first started listening to them when they were unsigned & still using the name 'Battleheart'. It was kind of bizarre to watch them get famous.

Due to some conversations in our discord (which you should join if you haven't already) I have decided to listen to the entire Linkin Park Discography.

>Minutes to Midnight

I didnt even realize this was only their third album, since the prior two albums contain so many well known songs. I think that this album must have lost them some fans as it does not contain nearly as much of their classic signature sound. Distorted guitars and sampled beats are only in a small minority of tracks. Many of the tracks are soft tunes that if you played them in front of your mom, she would probably think that you were a pussy. All that said, the soft tunes are pretty good musically. I also enjoy that LP seems to have expanded their sampling frontiers. Where on the previous albums you heard a lot of sampled beats, some of the tracks on this album seem to have improvised percussion instruments. "Given Up" for example, begins with what sounds like clapping and jingling change. I would give this album a 6/10 and I expect this album to have begun a downward trend for the rest of the discography.

>1000 Suns

This album is like LP pulled a radiohead and dropped all of their previous influences and made something completely new. I cant imagine that many of the fans of hybrid theory remained fans after this album came out. 1000 suns never sounds bad or lazy, it just sounds like something that I dont necessarily want to listen to. a few interesting tracks 6.5/10

LP kicks the intensity back up a little. This album has some truly good songs, like the ballad Roads Untraveled which has a wistful melody set to piano. 7/10 for LP albums

>The Hunting Party

This album was recommended to me by NW and I can see why. Electric guitar finally returns to the LP sound. This is easily the heaviest and best album since Meteora. The "classic" LP sound seems to be long gone, but you wont need that to enjoy this album. I especially enjoyed Guilty All The Same which has a more classical style of harmony combined with some of the heaviest guitars you will hear on this album. 8.5/10 on the LP scale

>One More Light

Wow, this is awful. This album is pure pop. You are almost disappointed that you dont hear any millenial whoops in this. I would expect to hear these songs in teenage girl clothing stores in the mall. It is really surprising that LP took this direction after their previous album having been so heavy. 2/10 on LP scale.

Music theory seems to me to be synonymous with the study of music. I think people are virtue signaling and not thinking about this enough when they praise this change for broadening the scope of the music department. Sure, generally classical music is what we think of when we think of theory, and classical is very white/male. I agree that it would be best if someone could get a music education that isn't classical-focused. But, if you aren't studying theory, what are you studying? History and politics alone won't make you a good musician. It would be better if academics looked for a way to reconcile theory and other styles of music than emasculate their music department for the sake of immediate diversity

This sums up my thoughts on it. Music is so holistic that excluding music theory especially seems ridiculous to me.

 No.31467

Why bother studying music if you don't learn at least a little theory?

 No.31475

I study music (music technology) but I never studied music traditionally aside from the occasional guitar grade as a kid. There have been a few times when I'd really wished I understood traditional theory better, however I worked around it.

One thing I've noticed is that the students on my course who understand theory all seem to go about writing music in the same way and end up with a more commercial result, and the ones like myself who don't spend a lot of time fucking around until something cool comes out or something just doesn't.

Anyway, music is very broad and very subjective. Who's to say how you can really study and appreciate it?

I don't know what I'm getting at here.

Incredibly high pitch wailing guitar solos like the one in Cemetary Gates by Pantera.

Those super high notes are fucking sweet, UNFFFF.

Any Laibach fans here? Some of there music is among the best in the genre, but some of it is rubbish. Some of their writing for chorus is classical level good.

Aside from JCS, what else is recommended?

Listening to Opus Dei now. Quite good for 'old school' industrial.

apparently there are some questionable political undertones, but i dont know what those are.

Anything on Jesus Christ Superstars is top tier industrial metal, but that is not their main genre. The album Volk transcends industrial and would be closer to something like art pop if not for the audible industrial roots

Apparently its pretty widely accepted that Laibach was a strong influence on Rammstein, both bands have commented on it and accepted it. So, today I listened to Rammstein's album Sehnsucht.

I honestly found it pretty weak and dated when compared to Jesus Christ Superstars. The guitar riffs were pretty good and heavy, but the rest of the music was lacking. I dont think I will be revisiting Rammstein any time soon, unless someone on here has a better album to suggest.

Did you know Varese once conducted a group of jazz musicians (including Mingus) and was into jazz? This website has the recordings. It was done in 1957 and is in the free jazz style- which this article notes was 4 years before Ornette Coleman's album "Free Jazz"

This sounds pretty good, I think you have a good sense of harmony so there's nice layering of parts, and the chord progression has some cool moments. My main complaint is that the instrumental pallet doesn't seem very interesting. It just sounds kind of like the template for edm, and the track also lacks atmosphere. It could do with more layering or changed drums to achieve that I think. Just my two cents, take it with a grain of salt, etc.

Been away from music for awhile
Do bands exist in 2017?
All I hear is this weird pop/rap fusion thing we have now
Seems the medium is more producer focused

 No.31440

music has been going that way for a long time. i can remember in 2000 and earlier, every rap song had a cameo by some soft ass pop diva and every diva song had a cameo by a rapper. the industry was trying to introduce you to the style.

the pop world favors single artists over groups because a single artist is cheaper and easier to market and control than a group of people. so you will rarely find full bands in the pop world with any kind of longevity. pop/rap fusion is perfect for this.
