This a comprehensive ranking of both progressive metal outfit Ne Obliviscaris as well as R&B/hip hop musician Ne-Yo. It should be noted I have never heard a single Ne-Yo song in my entire life.
Year of the Gentleman
A true masterclass in its genre, Ne-Yo really proves why he is a masterclass in the vast world of R&B or "Rhythm and Beat". So good
In My Own Words
This album is not as well crafted but the soul is still there, as is the charm that Ne-Yo always exudes. Very good.
Now this may be controversial but I think this is better than Non Fiction and almost as good as In My Own Words. The political stances he takes on this album are incredibly progressive and while less charming he shows just how structured and intelligent his music can really be. This is good.
Ok, this is good. But it is not as good as "Good Man" which is probably named so because he is a good man at making music. I can dig it.
Libra Scale is good but here his experimentation starts to go awry, as the focus on melodies and catchy hooks is shifted into dabbling in dissonance and math core like rhythms that simply do not work on a Ne-Yo album. The only song I really come back to on this album is "Concubine".
Ne-Yo took a jab at high concept albums before Good Man, in this case drawing parallels between the red scare and a major issue of it's time (the fear that the Mayan calendar had predicted the end of planet earth) but because that issue is an issue only of it's time this record means absolutely nothing and doesn't even have bangers like "Blood Fire Death " and makes him look like a stupid idiot retard. Only one album could be worse than this.
Because of You
Ne-Yo is truly a degenerate on this album. He outwardly condones pedophilia and high levels of racism and even contemplates killing his own wife quoting "Because of You,i...." and then proceeds to go on a tangent as to all the awful things his woman made him do and say, showing he could not take responding for how much of a bastard scumbag he was. He has since changed and for that I respect, but here is the chuddiest of chuds.
Portal of I
Ok now heres where the list gets bad beyond explanation
Shoulda been Year of the Gentleman
|This is the most effort I've put into a list in a long time |
|Libra scale poses itself to be super cool to modernise ne-yo but only had Beautiful Monster and generic tracks. |
Other than that list is spot on
|v good list lol|
|This is pathetic tbh. |
One of these is a masterclass of genre-bending, progressive music drawing inspiration from classical music with the addition of instruments of the style, all mashed up with sublime songwriting. And the other is NeO. Don't compare them pls.
|I was gonna ask what this site has against NeO anyway, but then I checked the ratings and the answer is probably "nothing."|
Site definitely has some weird thing about NeO. Apparently they turned into a meme while I wasn't looking or something
|List seems fair tbh |
|NeO is too atrocious for me to even begin to explain Inferno |
It would harm your virgin ears
|lmao great list dedes|
|Nah, NeO is a good band|
|listen to "closer" by ne-yo though, its good|
|I tip my hat, Dedes.|
|Ne-yo > NeO, agreed|
