galileanTactician - 9/10 I love the very beginning with the dissonant notes, great music video also
SinkingSailor who posted while I was writing this - 7/10 pretty good but the transition from the first ~minute of the song to the rest was a little weird and jarring in my opinion.

(Maybe epilepsy warning for this video?)

2/10 - I don't really know if it's a general rap thing, but it seems to just kinda be vulgar and offensive sounding for the heck of it. Also I don't really like rap so this already doesn't give it much of a chance, sorry. Intro sounds kinda neat though.

Since we're reviewing tastes, rather than explicitly the music being posted, I've gotta say that I very much dislike the take that rap is lesser because it's "vulgar and offensive sounding for the heck of it," not for any reason other than I used to believe the same thing, and it is, in and of itself, a 2/10 opinion. Because honestly? Vulgarity in music can serve a myriad of valid purposes. Some of these might just be for shock value (for the heck of it) sure, but in my listening experience a great deal of it initially came as a response towards the circumstances that befell artists during the birth of rap music, including topics such as class warfare, poverty, racism, brutality and gentrification, just to name a few. As such, this anger and vulgarity became a staple of the genre even as it evolved, and still serves a certain purpose regardless of whether or not individual tracks themselves still focus on such issues.

tl;dr vulgarity in rap is rarely just "for the heck of it," and is most often used - and should be treated as such - as another tool that an artist can use to express themselves rather that being a detractor from the music itself. plus, swearing is fun.

~~

This Postal Service track, on the other hand, is real nice. Very cozy, sparkly and well produced. Interesting instrumentation, even if a lot of it is very stripped back and subtle. It's like listening to the feeling of sitting on a hill and watching the sunlight shining off the ocean in the distance. A few points off for not really building too much, and staying a great deal "samey" for maybe a little longer than it should. 7.37/10

~~

Speaking of rap music that deals with issues, I've been listening to this track a LOT through the speakers of my new car just because the bassline sounds incredible through it. If you don't like it, come give me a visit down in Australia and we can play it through my speakers to see if you change your mind

I don't claim to know anything about the rap genre. Like I said, I just don't like rap. I don't care about knowing anything about rap. Though having said that, it's interesting to now know WHY rap artists often make the decisions to write the way they do. That doesn't mean I'll take this into account for my very superficial opinion still. The way I see good music is that it's something that sounds good to me. If it doesn't sound good to me, low score and here's why. I don't feel the need to go deeper or anything.

Yeah don't worry, I understand that. I just see "rap is vulgar which means its bad" a lot and think it's a goofy take. you seem to be judging it more subjectively which is fine and gucci and all thumbs up

Very distinctive. Voice is a bit nasally and doesn't fit at times, but the guitar is solid. Has a certain strange charm to it, but doesn't go far enough to really rock. 7/11

The opening sounds like the kinda music that would play as you set sail on the open seas in a cartoony adventure game and the rest of it sounds like a They Might Be Giants song sung by Rob Cantor in the style of Christian Bale Is At Your Party. a 6.8/10



have a goofy song about a joe talbot's love for his best friend danny

6.895. Not my general thing, but I'm rocking the instrumental. It would be more like a 7.11 if the ending was better.



(ahahaha my music taste is super mainstream compared to pretty much everyone else here. Not that that's a bad thing, it's just a thing.)
the epilogues were good.

Good song, it has a nice atmosphere but I feel like I'm missing some emotional context due to still not knowing what the fuck a Hamilton is. Now I do get why it's talked about so much though :apple:
