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!
1Converge
Jane Doe


Genre: post-fart-core. 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!)
2Animal Collective
Merriweather Post Pavilion


Genre: proto-bloop. 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.
3Circle Takes the Square
As the Roots Undo


Genre(s): Jordan-core, post-dunk. What makes it special: In the year two thousand-dunk, basketball player and all-around bro Michael Jordan (under the alias Drew Speziale) decided the troll the music world, releasing one of the most intentionally awful 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 fucking MAN.
4 Brokencyde
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.
5Ken
By Request Only


Genre: sex. 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.
