10 years later, SlipKnot's self-titled album is still better than 99% of records that are held in high regard on this message board.

3 Dolla Bill Y'all$ is one of the best albums of all time, and in fact I enjoy the entire Limp Bizkit output to some extent (though the albums after 3 Dolla Bill Y'all$ are enjoyable only for entertainment purposes ... I mean, they're fuckin' terrible! ... but they are entertaining)

KoRn - Good God is one of the best songs ever written by any band ever.

Stephen Malkmus is annoying.

I don't think this is an unpopular opinion, but: Most guitar players sound better before they "know" how to play their instruments.

Hella suck. Their last few albums have sucked so bad that listening to their early stuff sucks now.

Black Dice SUCK. Their first few albums are good though. But their latest stuff is probably the worst stuff ever made.

KOENJIHYAKKEI should be one of the biggest bands in the world.

Most bands with extremely large discographies (Charalambides, Wolf Eyes), even bands I really like, really only have one or two GREAT albums in their entire discography...

All things considered, Harry Partch may be a more important musician than Mozart.

Deerhunter somehow make delay pedals sound boring.

Mindless Self Indulgence's "Tight" is one of the absolute most brilliant albums ever made. Too bad they suck now.

I remember when TIGHT came out...I listened to it on the half-hour bus ride from the music store home. I was so into it I couldnt help but jerk around a bit and mouth the words.

.
id be very interested in hearing a more in depth explanation to this statement...

speaking of mozart- don giovanni is clearly a superior opera to la nozze di figaro.


and im sick of making rock, or noise rock, or whatever you call it. it has started to feel real pointless.
i think the two reasons are wagner and the fall. wagner unfortunately has made me realize the insignificance of everything. and the fall are the complete oposite- so utterly simple yet perfect that i cant comprehend how amazing they are...

not sure if thats an unpopular opinion. but i didnt feel like starting a new thread
and i hope in like a month or so ill get over it

I will say that I grew very bored of making rock music. That's why I stopped doing www.myspace.com/RUINHORSE back in the day. I am at a point now where I don't even like guitar distortion. Actually, just in general, I've been bored with music for a while. Doesn't seem like it if you look at all the great albums I've listened to this year -- and certainly I have listened to tons of good music. But I almost feel bad, because even though I recognize the music is good, it doesn't really excite me. I haven't heard anything that exciting. The last band to really excite me was Make a Rising.

Unpopular opinion? Really? Because it does seem quite clear that Don Giovanni is a superior opera, and if Kierkegaard agrees, then the rest of the world really doesn't have any place disagreeing.

Awesome. We should make music together on the above proviso.

Ok, if one is discussing what is unpopular within the context of say ''mainstream'' (I don't know of a better term) opinion, then the list is too exhaustive, BUT if we are talking about unpopular within the context of our respective local music realm or within our friends or persons of the same ilk, then:

1. Animal Collective as of late are at best fleetingly pleasurable
2. "Noise'' music is boring. Very little of it is decent and most can be overpowered by any mid sixties Jazz artist.
3. Quality is better than quantity in terms of rate of releases.
4. Less is more in terms of effects, etc...
5. Too little knowledge or appreciation for pioneering acts or artists

Maybe by words, but do you ever look at some of the releases from underground groups, especially in the noise circle. I mean c'mon, your really going to release 9 full lengths and several dozen cd-r's, most of which are shit, and could be easily reduced to say two full lengths.

I'm one for production through improvisation and experimentation but shit folks, make your relases count, keep your audience wanting more and please, less filler.

I agree entirely. Way too many bands just try to release way too much to show how "cool" and "innovative" they are. I'd rather hear complete, quality songs rather than a bunch of noise thrown together. Having a bunch of random experimental sounds in it doesn't necessarily make it good. They need structure and arrangement and most underground noise bands seem to not have that, just tons of random and weird song ideas and "experimental" tendencies. Some may like that, but not me.

Again, as already stated: Quality over quantity.... But then again I love Guided By Voices (And Robert Pollard), and they/he have approximately three million songs.

oh well.

Same with me. Also, I've never really been interested in Dinosaur Jr, Smashing Pumpkins, Pavement (well, I did buy one of theirs, but it didn't really interest me) and probably most of those 1990s indie/alternative rock bands.
