I have listened to this song 342 times sine the tape dropped. Love this song, you could have played it to the back drop of dogs and kittens and would still love it. With that said, I liked the visuals. I mean aside from the aesthetics, it was aloof, but it left room for personal interpretation. I felt like maybe it was showing a bunch of kids involved in something maybe bad, but whatever it was, it was cool. Cool cool.
Man thank you for this nugget, I thought i was the only one that felt like he talked about receiving sexual acts ALOT. Like almost every song a lot. It’s cool though I mean, what is hip hop without a little misogyny, Biz Marky?
I like this list, I’d shot around the same break down.
I fucking love this album point blank. QOTSA has yet to let me down.
WHOOO! hell yeah. The original Mob at it again? It doesn’t have to be a full on project, if they release enough singles, i’ll just compile a cd for em. ;)
I believe it’s because I look at every cd as a new place for any artist, but when i heard this cd it was incredible. I don’t know, the departure from what was expected by the masses drew me in even more. Then you get to listening to it and it feels more like a transcendent lesson as opposed to an alternative to EDM. I like this cd, a lot, and I don’t say that often. Hell I can’t stand EDM, sober.
You two read my mind then recited it verbal acuity.
Krit is a lyrical powerhouse in any environment. It always surprises me how little of his verbiage sounds like filler with so much of his work floating around. The trio in and of itself is a strong showing of what the underground has to offer. I am really keeping an eye on Badass though. He’s young and with the knowledge he has been able to conjure, I only hope that doesn’t change when looming longevity and the pitfalls of the game arise.
Great listen though.
One of the baddest videos I have seen in a while, artistic without being aloof. Straight forward too. Cinematography was crisp and the vibration made for some emotional retort on my part. I mean I don’t want to make the video seem transcending, but it was pretty epic. Love the song, love it more with the video.
I mean it has potential and the production is heading in the right direction. But it does sound really raw, that may be the factor that lends a certain type of fan to his music. I can definitely find things to like about this mixt ape as well. Off hand, the only difference i would request is work these levels. He’s competing with the instrumentals and though it makes for a sort of out of body or ethereal feel, it’s distracting. Lyrically, i don’t know if he is strong enough to muddy the sounds in this way without it seeming like he may be hiding or compensating for lack there of… something. But there is always room for progression and he has the time. he may be someone keep an eye on in the underground scene.
Also I think it goes without mentioning the origin of Murphy. The voice doesn’t sound like Tyler, going beyond cadence and actual the verbal notations you have come to know about Tyler. But if you listen to a FlyLo interview and slow it down, you would hear it. It’s things like a nasally pass on certain words, or a deepened build up on others. I feel like a lot of people just assumed Tyler because it’s a altered rap personality. I’m just noting to some of the ways words sounds and transitions made from verse to verse in his songs.
That video was wicked. i mean i get it’s an amputee having a hard time copping with the lost of a limb after having his whole life revolve around using that limb. So he then dreams of these psychedelic means of regaing said limb. But the end, the mangled mess next to him on the bed… What the hell happened there!?
I agree with Nicholas Nissen. Trent is a musical genius for his ability to blend genres and offer scores that break trends and in a lot of times, conventional wisdom. But I think with HtDA, he’s being safe. That’s not to say the work is bad, I just believe it lacks a certain je ne sais quoi. What I mean is that power for recognition that NiN had, or that awe insuring tingle that a Reznor production garners. A lot of it is off kilter and far from the norm, but not enough of it memorable. maybe a venture into some more unfamiliar territory would do HtDA some good. Less we ask for too much and recieve a messy compiling of alt-rock tracks. But nevertheless, Trent is a genius, and HtDA still have some good stuff to live by.
I love the music and this one is pretty easily accessible as opposed to there other more disjointed ventures. But i agree with Dorothy, (II) has my heart. Plague and Affection for sure.
There could be no better news. QOTSA are gods and with Dave back in the fray, they’ll probably just be as great as they have always been. I’m just excited to hear a new QOTSA album is coming. With this and Coheed with new music, my brain is doing dances my ears can condone.
Awesome, played it nonstop since it dropped. I even got all ‘fanboy’ and sent a tweet about it on Halloween.
The cuts were a bit questionable and some of the angles were a little under thought. But the project was ambitious and far removed from the usual dribble expected from a video in the hip hop category. Mind you this song is about as hip hop as an ode to the working man by Foo Fighters, but still I think Kid Cudi’s mindset is a breath of fresh air. Could the execution be better, yes, but what he has here isn’t the pits of filming.
I kinda enjoyed it.
I love BSS, but this video is macabre. Nothing short of what i’d expect… just didn’t expect it you know what i mean… Ah, it was a good one, love the song. Later.
