Did anyone check this out?

Spoiler: I support Trump and used to listen to Eminem back when he was good

Out of respect for his earlier works, I decided to give this album a listen, the same way I have listened to every album that has sucked since he began sucking. As of writing this, I have only listened to half of it. While Eminem is clearly skilled, it is doubtful that he has any idea of what people actually want to listen to anymore.

In the first track, Walk on Water (featuring Beyonce) gave me a little hope for this album as it sounded like Eminem was getting personal, talking about his hopes, fears, victories, and disappointments. The second track however, begins with a negation of all of that and he claims that since he has a mic, he is a god.

The fourth track, Untouchable, is an NWA style beat criticizing whites and white police officers. In this track he talks at length about the struggle of the black community and of white privilege. Speaking honestly, this is enough to turn me off right here, but since I am trying to listen objectively, I did not let it. What did turn me off however, was that he continuously calls himself black through by referring to blacks and the black community as "we," when in the second track he talks about the privileged lifestyle that he leads, living in a gated community where the neighbors say "hi." It came off as inauthentic and forced.

River (feat Ed Sheeran) was ok. I honestly hate the guest appearances on the choruses, but this was passable. This song is basically a moral tale against having casual unprotected sex. Not really what Eminem was about, but hey, maybe he grew up a little.

Remind Me is a negation of all of that, which tries to capture the fun old Eminem. He talks about wanting to pick up a big fake tittied slut, but it sounds forced. Conspicuously present is a sample of Joan Jett's I Love Rock and Roll. Joan Jett is a feminist icon, which gives further creedence to the claims that Eminem has gone full SJW.

The last track I made it through before work was Like Home. It is an anti Trump track disguised as a patriotic track. In this track he calls for Trumps assassination, which is already cliche as fuck, and he also calls Trump a nazi (OMG!). He also says that he loves his country and that he is going to fight for it, which is a load of bullshit because in Untouchable he says the following:

>Home of the brave is still racist 'ville

>So this whole nation feels like a plantation field
>In a country that claims that its foundation was based on United States ideals
>That had its Natives killed
>Got you singin' this star-spangled spiel
>To a piece of cloth that represents the "Land of the Free" that made people slaves to build

So, halfway through, I think its pretty shitty. I think that Eminem has lost touch with America long ago. I mean, look how edgy his shirt in this picture is. Its not like the entirety of mainstream media is shoveling this same shit down your throat. Eminem drew a line in the sand and said for me to stop listening to his music. I should have done what he asked. His music has sucked for ages and I cant imagine that changing now.

yo, honestly though, who uses these extra syllables for solfege? I have only ever used Do, Re,Mi, Fa, Sol, La, Ti, Do

 No.31807

>>31806
I'd assume anyone who used solfege in general. It's hard for me to sing a chromatic scale though, and probably is for most people, and that's probably the only reason they aren't commonly known

I graduated from a music conservatory and neither my school nor the other school that I attended used the extra syllables.

Huh, I guess I'm speaking as someone who doesn't know much about it, but what's the usual use of solfege? How do you deal with notes outside of the key if you ever would have to sing them?

 No.31810

>>31809
This is a debate that I would have in my mind as well. My school used fixed do, but my friend at Berklee said that they used moveable. I thought that moveable was actually far more practical and that fixed was a sort of experiment by educators to break students away from tonality. In order to sing notes outside of the key you would just “think sharp” or “think flat” and sing the same syllable. Whether the note on the staff is an F, F#, or Fb, tit is still solfeged as “Fa”

>The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's Class of 2018 has been announced and the eligible alternative rock acts were almost entirely shut out. In their first year of eligibility, Radiohead and Rage Against the Machine, both of whom were considered to be among the favorites for induction, did not get in. Neither did Kate Bush. Eurythmics or Depeche Mode.

>In terms of alternative-minded artists, only the Cars, who mixed new wave with rock and pop to great effect in the late '70s and early '80s made the cut.


>Instead, the Hall also chose Bon Jovi – who won the fan vote – the Moody Blues, Dire Straits and Nina Simone.

There are rap artists in the R&R Hall Of Fame, so they will fit in just fine.

 No.31730

I see your point for RATM, but, even if they don't fit the rock archetype very well, I think depeche mode are generally more classic than either aerosmith or bon jovi

I didnt realize that the hall of fame included non-rock artists. Ok then, Depeche Mode definitely deserves induction.

>>31730
Yeah, I stand by RATM not being inducted. They were probably put on the list because of general political turbulence. In the grand scheme of things, they werent even active for that long. Might as well put Limp Bizkit in the hall of fame.

I didnt realize that the hall of fame accepts non-rock artists. That being the case, I would absolutely argue for the induction of Depeche Mode. I would say that their big songs are as classic as any band in the hall of fame.

If you drive down any interstate in the South, you can't miss the giant black-and-yellow signs beckoning: Waffle House.

These ubiquitous, yellow-roofed chain restaurants have been serving up not just waffles but all manner of Southern comfort foods 'round the clock for more than 60 years.

And for the past 30 years or so, Waffle House has also been working on a side project: making music.

"There Are Raisins in My Toast" is one of about 40 songs that Waffle House has released since the mid-1980s on its own record label — called Waffle Records, of course.

"So, it's not 'Waffle House, Waffle House, Waffle House' over and over again," she says. "It's about our food. It's about our people. It's about the things that happen if you just sit in a Waffle House and listen to the conversations around you. We try to represent all that to some degree in the songs."

And the Waffle House oeuvre encompasses a broad range of styles.

All around solid album, Rezz's work sounds fresh. It's good to see more female producers around. The beats and the jumpy, heavy basslines will get you moving for sure. Along with that, there's industrial vibes all over this. It's like a hotpot of many genres. Didn't end up skipping a single track.

If you're not into typical edm build-drop music, this one, and >>31634, are definitely recommended.

I listened to about half of it today. I was surprised that the tracks were so long. The mixdown did make it a bit unpleasant to listen to, but overall very enjoyable. The first track had a shredding guitar solo, that was in a pentatonic style, like classic rock, but it did not sound at all out of place and I enjoyed it very much.

What do you guys think about computer music transcription? I've tried using it before to generate sheet music and while the accuracy was impressive, the mistakes were noticeable enough to be bothersome. I'm not skilled enough to fix these mistakes or just transcribe the music myself. Having perfect pitch must be great…

I think they are good if you need something transcribed quickly and your ear is not very good. Otherwise, it is better to transcribe by ear.

i have had similar problems when scanning a score into a notation program like Sibelius. It is 90% accurate, but fixing the 10% is time consuming and annoying.

You dont need perfect pitch in order to transcribe. Work on your relative pitch and your transcription skills will grow rapidly. If you are interested in working on your ear, let me know and I will give what knowledge I am able to give.

 No.31746

>>31744
Yeah, I would like to improve my ear. I've heard conflicting things about the practice of listening to the same note everyday for hours on end to try to memorize how it sounds. I've also heard that drugs that increase neuro-plasticity could re-enable the ability to develop perfect pitch. I don't really know much about relative pitch.

 No.31747

>>31746
Relative pitch is when you are in a key such as C major, and you can always find your way back to C because it is the root note. That is what solfege is used for. Relative pitch can be developed at any age. All you need to do to develop it is ear training.

When you listen to a song, try to find the root note of the song. The root note is the note that all of the other notes gravitate towards. If you are in C major, C is the root note. If you play a D, your mind will hear that it wants to go to C. If you play an E, you may hear it going E-D-C. The best way to develop your ear is to do solfege, play a lot of music and sing along, and also ear training apps.

If you sing everything that you play, your ear will develop very quickly. Solfege will also help. In your spare time, get an ear training app and use it daily. 10 mins a day is enough. My favorite app is Melody Ear Training for ios. It plays a series of notes and you play them back. You can choose to have it play within a scale. If you do this, it will help your relative pitch and transcription abilities.

Also, play a lot of music and try to figure things out by ear on your instrument. In time you will improve.
