Not intentionally. Pardon me for not jerking off all over my keyboard at the mere mention of NMH. Generic chord changes. Irritating vocals. Downright stupid lyrics: "Semen stains the mountain tops". To each his own however.

NMH is ok. Definitely not the visionary everyone sees them to be. I made lo-fi indie music myself at one point, and I didn't get away with it, so I don't think Jeff Mangum should.

And I'll agree, it is fucking hipster music. People only listen to it cause the hot indie girl you crush on likes them. The reason albums become "sleeper" hits is because enough hipsters told everyone that they're stupid for not getting into it.

Mangum is a musical genius. I'd recommend reading up on that album before chalking it up to hipster bullshit.

Btw, "Semen stains the mountaintops" is an awesome line. It's a completely brilliant way of saying that sex is everywhere.

couldn't get into this album, kinda agree with boognish, esp. with lyrics like "I love you jesus christ" during the opening minute of one song...I mean could he not have phrased his love for his religion in a more poetic and original way?

'I'm not joking and its ok you dont have to pity me for not liking a shitty hipster album'



Labeling NMH as a band only hipsters listen to is a bit naive, I found them all on my own and enjoy their music without having someone else tell me how 'cool' it is. The problem with bringing up the hipster point only shows that you care too much about what others think of your musical selections, thus you try to be ironic and hate what everyone else likes just to seem insightful. In turn making you the cliche hipster. Funny how that works huh?

I'm not embarrassed to admit this is my favorite album ever. It's very close and personal to me, but whatever, if you don't like it, you don't like it. That's fine with me, and it doesn't necessarily mean Boognish doesn't "get it" just because it didn't have the same impact on him as it did on me.

Holyroach, early R.E.M. is a hell of a lot better and more influential than NMH. I'll bet you haven't even listened to the first couple of R.E.M. albums. You're just ignorant and childish, as demonstrated by your little fantasy disguised as insult in the last paragraph.
Funny how much of a shitstorm i kicked up here simply by expressing an opinion. And yes, i am 'emotionally involved in the discussion of the album'. Your point?

I bought In The Aeroplane Over The Sea last night on impulse... On the first listen i fell in love. Seriously, this is amazing. Yeah, its lo-fi indie, and yeah, its a hipster album. But i see it as one of those things that while its so "cliche" to like, maybe it just deserves all the praise it gets. Kinda like Fight Club. For so many years i refused to read or watch it... half a bottle of vodka later and i was watching one of the most amazing movies ever. So i guess my analogy here is, on an impulse buy cause of talk of it on sputnik, i've found my latest classic album. cheers.

fuck you boognish, f'real.
