• Ten most common misconceptions regarding musical critique.

    6 Sep 2008, 1:44 de 0k0k0k0

    This is a tl;dr piece. Of rehashed ideas over and over again. You have been warned.

    1. Visual appeal equals musical appeal.
    Obvious cases of visual kei faggotry and metal posturing idiocy aside, it’s to say that artsy music videos and photoshoots do not mask the fact that the musicians are just terrible at rousing emotions other than righteous loathing back at them. And even then on the other end, mesmerizing soundscapes wafting from the stage, emanating from spaced-out statues with guitars or what have you. As dorky as they look, no different from the classroom nerd, unmoving but for the subtle flicks of the picks on their fingers, fact remains…. They’ll never get laid.

    That, and the other lesson so implicitly overt.

    2. If it sucks live, it sucks.
    At its basest classification, only two types of music exist. Studio version and live version. One of those clearly plays with sounds difficult/impossible to replicate under real time circumstances…

    The Beatles / I Saw Her Standing There / Please Please Me (1) / Mar 1963

    It's The Beatles Week! Day 1: The Early Years

    Longtime readers will note that I have never once selected a Beatles track as a Song Of The Day! How can this be? Ignoring The Beatles for this long is only allowing the elephant in the room to get ever bigger, and 19 months after the launch of the SotD, it's time to give them their due.

    I'll say right up front that I'm one of those fans of rock that agrees with all those various polls and whats-its that puts The Beatles at the top of the list as the all-time greatest band. The influence of Ringo Starr, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, and George Harrison - especially collectively, but also individually - on both the world of music and upon pop culture at large is both immeasurable in breadth and and profoundly deep. There are so many other massively successful bands by any number of measures, but the fact that they influenced - and almost 50 years later CONTINUE to influence - so many artists…
