Just want to be clear, being a poptimist probably means you enjoy big, obvious melodies and miss subtler more intricate ones.

City of Children has a great riff and great guitar work throughout, contrasted with other songs with more generic riffs like Suburban War. Also has a great melody with a great uplifting chorus with a bit of melancholy. Whole song feels easy going and epic at the same time which is tough to pull off. You probably just have a bad ear for melody.

People talk a lot of shit about Arcade Fire even though they are an incredible band that puts on a great live show everytime with an unimpeachable setlist. Everything Now wasn’t the greatest but Creature Comforts and Electric Blue still bang and they already have like 20 great songs to their name, more than about every classic rock band that people slob all over.

This is the worst piece of shit I’ve ever heard. It’s Justin Timberlake doing the Bon Iver impression for an entire album.

I mean that is fine if that’s what you believe, obviously I disagree with there being no difference between a male and female. Also the idea that classifying ppl at birth is “denying trans existence” is so far out lefty I can’t even comprehend. But that’s not the argument that she making, she’s using the word gender instead of sex bc she is uncomfortable making the argument you just made about there being no difference, she‘s is intentionally misrepresenting what language the census used to score political points and be a good lefty.

Thats fine if you want to put intersex on there, but don’t act like the question was some completely different question than what was actually asked.

Would love for someone to explain how I’m wrong? Like when did the consensus become that gender and sex are the same thing? And not only did they become the same thing, they became the same thing in such a way that you don’t even acknowledge a different word was used. Like if she thought that sex and gender are the same she should have said that, instead she lied about what word was used and then substituted her word: gender. She should have said “there are only two sexes listed” instead of three or whatever, if that’s what she believes.

Very brave of her to lie about what the census says. Like, it clearly states sex not gender, not sure what the problem is. The census is trying to find out how many people of different sexes exist in America, it’s not hard. You can still be a they/them person and answer male/female on a sex question for ffs.

The census asks what sex you are not gender. As with the Jk Rowling thing, seems like people on the left want to confuse the two because they don’t want to acknowledge that sex is immutable? Very strange to just out and out lie about what the census asks.

80% of number ones this year are from black ppl, they account for like 13% of US, anyone saying there is discrimination in music against black ppl is out of their mind. I will stop posting though, it’s an unwinnable fight.

Love Tweedy, but libs going to lib. His take that the modern music industry is built on back of black art is correct, but he should add at the expense of white art.

“Lyrics first artist” is a great euphemism for, all her songs sound the same. All rappers are also “lyrics first artists”.

I’m sure some people will say what about the critical adoration for LDR, Fiona Apple, etc. I’d say, the cultural derision is much worse for white men than it is for white women, even though both are biased against.

Should never have apologized, she’s very close. Look at stereogum and who they feel comfortable criticizing and who they don’t. If it’s a pop star the snarky comments are always saved for Ed Sheeran or Taylor Swift or whoever else as long as they are white. If they are less famous and white they will just be completely ignored. Look what happened to some of the great indie rock albums of the past two years Deceiver, Freedom, whatever else. If those albums were made by POC there would have been incessant press for them and talk among critics nonstop, but because the people involved are white, critics and mainstream culture as a whole couldn’t care less.

I appreciate LDR pointing out the double standards that exist for white people and POC-and pretend POCs like Grande. There’s an obvious bias in not just what critics choose to single out for criticism but in the works critics like to signal out as genius. It’s pretty obvious at this point there is one set of standards for white people who make art and another softer standard for anyone of a certain identity, ie non white, non straight.

More artists need to start doing stuff like this. The Instagram feeds are an incredibly poor place to watch anyone perform, and the bathroom or wherever they are during the performance, always sounds like shit. Live broadcasts from venues on YouTube should be the standard.

Rap has got to be scared of this, the robot can pump out trash faster than all the Lils and Babys combined. No way you could tell a difference between the same 808s and flows either.

I called it nerdy because the melody has no rhythm or is stilted. I guess you can call it something else, the melody is very forced over the top of the song. It just reminds me of a nerdy person rapping or trying to sing a song and being behind the beat and rhythm.

Black album has a lot of good songs, the vocal melody in Hero is extreme nerd cringe, and its definitely a horrible song, no matter how many times you actually* me.

Hero has to be one of the worst songs ever, but I’m still listening to the Black Album, the duality of Weezer.
