Don't bother replying, by the way. This whole "discussion" has turned into enough of a soul-sucking black hole of stupidity already.

Your inability to respond with actual examples or data of any sort is telling of your insecurity regarding the matter. You'd rather take personal shots, and attempt to prevent me from responding. It wasn't my intent to rustle your Depends™, we're just talking about audio quality: chill.

You're ignoring so many variables such as the quality of the master, the genre of music, quality of recording equipment, the levels of the mix, etc. It's not a black vs. white argument - there's enough grey area where it can be perfectly argued that the difference is negligible in a majority of cases.

Some bands I insist on listening to via .flac like NIN or Mastodon, but even then - meh.

In other words...

 


(plus at your age, I doubt your hearing is 100% what it used to be, my friend)

PPS: Filmstruck just went tits up, right? Glad I have my Blurays. What stops any of these streaming places from just one day deciding to delete certain things (hello Sonic Nurse!!) or fuck off?

I will eventually buy all this shit.

That's what I thought.

i dont get the cult of “obscurity” as virtue (what artist wants to be unknown?) but there are 30 bazillion merzbow albums on apple music so i guess that bubble has burst

Google Play Music has 96 different Merzbow records, fyi.

I'm hoping the sound quality isn't too distorted for you though

funny thing is the day after filmstruck closed i got an email from criterion asking me to preregister for their upcoming service (“charter member” they call it, ooh fancy, lol). this comes with lifetime discounts. i said yes of course.

sure, we’re not quite yet in paradiso-level availability of everything everywhere, but that’s where things are logically going. just like power and gas lines and running water and supermarkets. i don’t need to burn coal at home or take my bucket to the well or go to india for my own spices.

and yes, they can sometimes delete things, yes there are problems that need to be worked out, yes. just like when there’s a storm the electricity goes out sometimes. but asking to make plastic circles great again is not gonna solve those problems.

I always recommend getting Google Play Music/Youtube Premium for $10 a month instead of Spotify though. It's 2 services for the price of one - PLUS it allows you to upload local music files and stream 'em anywhere which I find especially neat

Or there's always Tidal for 'audiophile streaming', but...

Apple Music has standardized 256 kbps.

But it’s only a backup for when I don’t have my CDs or I’m not sitting with a turntable. Sounds fine.

I can’t imagine caring so much about that shit that you pay more paycheck dollars for >100 kbps. Lol. And I used to record music with bands and fixate on acoustics and getting the right kick drum sound.

But since I’m not a college student in Converses anymore, and have, like, bills to pay, I honestly DGAF about whether the music I’m blasting in my car is an 8.5/10 or a 10/0.

Why yes, yes you can. Browse someone's account and check it out. I guarantee there's more Merzbow on Spotify than in your personal collection.

I use spotify Premium to jam all the hard trap tunes I dig, as most rappers are not putting anything out on vinyl anymore.


Thank goodness for Travis Scott releasing Astroworld on double LP. sounds soo fucking goooooood

OK, thanks for the replies/info regarding what is available on the streaming services these days.

I am pleasantly surprised, and one day I may stop being a dinosaur, and making Plastic Circles Great Again.

hahaha

well, it’s like when relativity was discovered/proven, many newtonians got pissed off having invested their lives in an outdated paradigm.

understandable, but one must let go

now go enjoy all 96 merzbows!

also i posted the link to criterion channel on the moobys thread

and yes it will be available in canada

go forth! go forth and thrash! as they say

Newton works really well for just about all speeds except for near c.

I got more than 96 Merzdiscs.
