also the best part of this album maybe except for the second half of even if you're never awake

is the part in tippy's demise where suddenly it gets really beautiful

OH ALSO the last song where after it starts to "get really repetitive" suddenly it just goes BAVWOOSH
like 8 or something? minutes in and it's like WHOAAAAA

lol b4k do you listen to The Beatles?

cause maybe you'd like the Schmeadles, a secret and underground Beatles side project of Lennon and Ringo

Instead of wasting their time writing brilliant and colorful pop songs that actually make sense, they wrote directionless noise epics, one is 60 minutes of Lennon farting into foxhole. It's very similar to both your Unfathoms efforts and very similar to the works of experimental music mastermind William Basinski.

they even have one song without haphazard genre juxtaposition! You'd love this band! But they were super underground and did the projects while The Beatles rose to fame....only a few hipsters knew about it, they are so indie it will make your head spin. You would really like them. Get their first LP: "Lennon's Fart, In E Major".

im one of those dudes who thinks none of their albums are overrated huge fan boy

id even call a few underrated (hard days night, POTENTIALLY beatles for sale)

the only one that is maybe overrated is help! and thats sort of a stretch cuz no one really talks
about it

their early period is sorta underrated overall imo

revolver and abbey road mostly. they're around 3s, certainly not 4.5s and 5s no matter how much social influence they had.

Only problem I seriously have is Abbey Road... I'd say 3.5 or so probably, but hte fact it has a 4.6 average is a little ridiculous.

haha revolver at a 3.

and @Robertsona, some early Beatles was straight up shit. Their first two albums were atrocious. Obnoxious as fuck, but I guess that was pop in that time period.

Oh

and Bitchfork

Revolver is a 5

maybe Revolver would be better if it had a 60 minute track that sounded like a giant lo-fi fart
