It’s not like watching the entire season of a dodgy soap opera, because that stuff is really black & white and not particularly subjective, it’s fairly predictable – it is what it is.
With “art” it’s a snippet of a much larger narrative. It becomes vague and interpretive to the audience. For its creators it’s a masterbatory and self serving exercise.
But I’d prefer for an artist or band to write/make/create/draw/design things that are personal and find an audience by its own merits, rather than shitty formulatestuff that become just that – stuff; disposable stuff.
Anyway, this comp is kinda of about that, but more so emo/post-hardcore bands that do write long winded convoluted songs, some are pretty easy to understand; others are like that snippet thing.
