Jazz album of '11 isn't a big statement, but this is a fucking fantastic album. I've loved this since it came out.

"this is easily the most pretentious album of the year."

I mean, it's not even pretentious at all. Especially for a Jazz album. Are you just talking about the black history concept?

this is really good but its getting overrated as shit by a lot of people i know who don't really listen to jazz. i guess its getting a lot of attention from internet. hopefully it gets more people into jazz though

it's incredibly pretentious

this sort of jazz has been done hundreds of times before, and has a reputation for being some of the
worst, most artsy fartsy drivel on the planet

that said, this is by no means bad. I just wouldn't consider it immediately to be high art like some
people do just because its jazz and there is a girl screaming and there is a overarching concept being
explored that gives it this kind of edgy intellectual, avant-garde appeal

uh what is this reputation you speak of? name me an album of such artsy fartsy drivel

i dont understand why people call these things pretentious, its like as soon as you attach a concept to something its pretentious, or if you play something people dont easily understand you are just being pretentious.

i'm sitting here listening to Coal Chamber and thinking this is way better than Matana Roberts

just try me guy who needs to waste time with things like backing up arguments and evidence that is not what the founding fathers of this forum had in mind when they made this voyage several years ago

album of the year so far hands down

"Peter Evans Quintet's Ghosts NEEDS more love"

that album is good but this is so much better.

"this is easily the most pretentious album of the year."

If you are into black metal then you should really check this out. It has the most tortured shrieks on any album you'll hear in 2011.

This album is SO difficult for me to get into, but I'm liking it more with subsequent listens.

Digging: Lantlos - .neon
