Oh god @Cornu AmmonisThe approach to recording this album is as interesting as the music itself
In generaI I feel the opposite, that art in general gets undervalued because it the response it elicits isn't either purely intellectual or a downer. Literature is worse for this than musicThis thread kind of depresses me as there seems to be a feeling that "serious" music is bad music. Sure, there's no levity here like there was with The Smiths and Wu-Tang albums but for me there's way more raw emotion coming through.
They seem to be depressed enough based on their interviews.
It utterly depends on the music. I don't think I could get through an article on polyrhythmic mechanisms underpinning complex cultural references in the music of Iron Maiden when I could just stick on "The Trooper" and play air guitar. Equally, I'm not going to listen to Stockhausen to get into a party mood.I've nothing against serious music per se, I just find that a bit of levity often gives me an emotional gateway into the music. I don't care about the raw emotion of the band, I care about the raw emotion the music induces in me.
