Was kidding mang. Even though this convo has been repeated as nauseam at this point, at least it's musical discussion. I honestly feel like I could discuss this topic a lot, especially if we expanded the berth of bands talked about. deafheaven has become the face of the trve vs poser BM argument

i feel like the poser or "hipster" stigma that get's attached to this band is really ridiculous. if you like it, you like it. if you don't, you don't.

"i feel like the poser or "hipster" stigma that get's attached to this band is really ridiculous. if you like it, you like it. if you don't, you don't."
Things aren't quite as easy as that when it comes to anything that includes the issue of image, though. I mean to some degree yeah obviously, duh.

But there are certainly people that listen to music/pretend to listen to music to "fit in" with a scene or somesuch shit.

As for the repetition - so what? Proper discourse is built on revisiting points. If you don't dig that, whatever - look at other threads.

Addendum: I'd also like to note that I can't possibly comprehend how Wizard likes this album.

hm sorry wolfe I just would like to talk about this album that I enjoy but I do have to look at the thread to see what is being said unfortunately 80% of the time looking at the thread it's like "this isn't bm" "it's influenced by bm" "it's more screamo/shoegaze" "yes but there's bm in there" MO: "Album Rating: 1.0 shit" and looking at that for a year is kind of annoying I'm sure you would agree

i don't find it to be that difficult. if you disapprove of a band because of their image or their sense of
fashion you are and always will be a literal fuccboi. same goes for the people who pretend. i would take
those opinions with a grain of salt

Saw them live and the album hit me like a ton of bricks afterward. Live performances can certainly influence the way you feel about records.

had the same experience when WITTR released Celestial Lineage, wasn't hugely impressed when it came out and then saw them on the european leg of their tour and ended up loving it.

I can't help but dig this. The melodies in the main tracks absolutely soar.

Yeah, no shit. I'm just saying these phenomena DO exist. Not that I approve of it.

"Saw them live and the album hit me like a ton of bricks afterward. Live performances can certainly influence the way you feel about records."
I don't entirely get that, I mean in associative fashion yeah maybe or if the songs they play live from that album make for a good show. But I don't see how that enhances the quality of the album as it was recorded and released. (i.e. it doesn't factually change anything about the album itself)

"Because he's a wizard and this album is magic

duh"
I do like that explanation better!

@tempest: Maybe, I mean you could just filter out everything irrelevant. Most of the time when I'm in some kind of forum I read selectively.

He didn't like it at all at first iirc as expected, then saw it live and found a whole new appreciation for it which happens I guess

not a v hard concept to grasp actually. i mean nothing about an album is "factual" other than the fact that
it exists. personal experiences (live shows, general life experiences, etc.) can greatly alter someone's
opinion on an album. all bout that personal association u feel me cuh?
