second half isn't quite as boring
Band has made the same boring album 7 times now
Digging: Robert Lowe - I Was Sober
That's an easy criticism to make, but based on the two songs released from this, not really valid this time around. It seems like they are attempting to branch out a bit. An honestly their token sound is lovely enough to render their lack of progression moot at least for me.
Digging: The Dutchess & The Duke - She's The Dutchess, He's The Duke
there's nothing worse than naming an album its own number it's so fucking hokey
Digging: Acollective - The Coming of Light
Kind of like it, that second half is very nice and sounds nothing like beach house
Digging: Getatchew Mekurya, The Ex and Guests - Moa Anbessa
lock this in for dullest record of the year
guitar around 2:37 is neat
They could have named it anything and it would have been better than 7.
Stripes. There, that's a better name.
Digging: The Republic of Wolves - Shrine
lol fuck off guys, you're not even giving this album a chance. Sure, their albums have a similar sound, but each has a distinct vibe that's different from the other releases. This absolutely is the case with the two songs that have been released so far, which are outstanding
most boring band in the world.
Digging: Amen Dunes - Freedom
kinda low key like these guys now shhhhhhhhhhh
Digging: Wire - 154
took like four years but ye
Negativity here is retarded song slays and who tf cares about album names
Both songs are amazing. Hell yes, so fucking excited for this one.
lol I feel like nobody bashing this even listened to the song, this is incredible and this next album's going to be crazy
wow beach house fans are defensive
Which is a surprise, as I'd always thought they must be loads of fun at parties
great generalization powers right there, u angry johnny boy
Digging: Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith - The Kid
incredibly keen for this new album and to see if they can get back to their peak (which for me was bloom).
absolutely psyched for this album now, first single was sick and "Dive" is absolute gold.
sounds like a nice mix of depression cherry and bloom which are my two favorites. album of the year contender for me already.
Digging: Here We Go Magic - A Different Ship
I care about album names and naming your album its number in your discography reeks of laziness and pretty much outs how insipid it’s gonna be
yeah total lack of inspiration w/ # titles
Digging: Of Montreal - White Is Relic/Irrealis Mood
okay so now i guess we have to hate Portishead for "Third" lol these are the sophomoric comments i've ever seen
people like to whine about the stupidest things as per usual
issa gunna be guuuddddd
Digging: Teenage Wrist - Chrome Neon Jesus
titles and album art are all a part of the experience imo and it's the same with for example interpol s/ting their fourth album
i don't think it's a stupid thing, doesn't inherently ruin the album but it's still a bugbear
"The title, 7, itself is simply a number that represents our seventh record. We hoped its simplicity would encourage people to look inside. No title using words that we could find felt like an appropriate summation of the album."
I respect this reasoning honestly.
People bitching about album titles is one of my favorite sput pasttimes. Imagine if they had self titled it. Genius.
*spends three years touring and writing new music* those fucking lazy bastards
'I care about album names and naming your album its number in your discography reeks of laziness and pretty much outs how insipid it’s gonna be'
Exception - numbering or even better 'self-titling and numbering' from the start can be the best option of all.
See Zeppelin I to IV, instant legendary status. Caveat: only works if you are a great band and keep consistency throughout the numbered run.
Digging: Essaie Pas - New Path
all naysayers are getting noogied for being big nerds
Sure the title’s lazy but at least the art is beaut. I’m hyped.
Digging: Midnight Choir - Amsterdam Stranded
but imagine touring and writing music for three years and then summarising that period of work and creativity by calling your album ‘7’
smacks of boredom and I bet the album is completely average, if this shit didn’t matter at least a little bit albums wouldn’t even have names
um, god is 7, ty
anatelier is getting noogied
this is my hill to die on
i still like them ://////
Almost wasn't bored shitless by this one. They do that sound well but when you've heard it a hundred times over by other and who mix it up with other genres and dynamics (and interesting vocals) beach house just gets weaker by comparison.
i absolutely love this song
what the fuck happened to this thread haha
song is still amazing
Song is amazing. They can call the album whatever the fuck they want.
Digging: Yamantaka // Sonic Titan - Dirt
agreed with wing, song is amazing, couldn't care less what the album is called
Digging: Molly Burch - Please Be Mine
hmm, after listening to the song 30 more times, i have to take back what i said about the song being amazing
it's greater than amazing, mega stoked for the album
