|Explaining Albums You Don't Get!, Pt. 1|
Ever think "Wtf this converge is just people screaming and farting"
yeah well this is for you (hint: you're right) enjoy!
What makes it special: Jane Doe was an innovation in recording styles,
being listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the first album to
consist entirely of farts and screams! Way to go, Converge! Sputnik staff,
I'll see you after class. (Special fact: three producers were asphyxiated from
the fumes during the recording of this record. Wow!)
Merriweather Post Pavilion
What makes it special: Unbeknownst to many, Merriweather Post Pavilion
started as a project as soon as members of The Animal Collectives noticed
that Jane Doe had achieved a world record for its recording techniques.
Avey Tare, Pandy Bear, and whatever the fat guy's name is wanted to
knock Converge out of their spot, so they took Converge's record's
achievement and took it one step further, recording with only "bleeps" and
"bloops". However, as soon as Guinness approached The Animals Collective
to have their name appear in the book, the band turned it down, for they
were too hip.

As the Roots Undo
Genre(s): Jordan-core, post-dunk.

albums written, almost as bad as that Kid A shit, haha! A few years after
the release gained momentum, Jordan decided to negatively review his
own album and create even more controversy surrounding the album. While the users of Sputnikmusic got
really mad, Jordan laughed, holding his laptop on one hand and slam dunking with the other. God, what a
I'm Not A Fan, But The Kids Like It!
Genre: greatest thing ever, pre-core.
What makes it special: It's just Jane Doe in reverse no seriously check it
out. Haha you guys must be feeling pretty embarrassed right now.
By Request Only
What makes it special: Dr. Ken, PhD in Musicology, decided in 1974 that he
would transmit the powerful feelings of sexual intercourse into musical
form. By Request Only was the outcome. Just look at that fucking cover.
