is it worth getting?
I don't own any other Sunn0)))
if that helps. It's not the great leap forward it's been touted as.
and I quite like it, Alice is very good.
get the one with boris on. they're almost proper songs
-It is a huge leap forward from other Sunn O))) releases. From choir to conch shell, Sunn O))) are broadening their pallate of expression like never before.
-Alice may be the most beautiful track of the decade.
-It is vastly superior to their collaboration with Boris
-It's perfect for a first time listener, it's much lusher than Black One or Flight Of The Behemoth or what have you, but it's not misleading prog wankery like the album with Boris (not a fan of that one).
-It melds their crushing reverberations to almost classical arrangements.
Get this album.
probably still my album of the year. And it's almost certainly the best one to start on. So get it.
While I don't share the supreme affection most of the above have for the band I do think it is worth buying, even just to properly judge all the fuss
I suspect that I may like it a lot more in time.
Horrible, talentless noise.
Sunn O))) make noise created by PEOPLE with talent. You ass.
is talentless and horrible. They randomly strike out at a guitar as if they're having a stroke while recording, for fuck's sake.
do you own the album? Have you listened to it through?
If so then fine, but still, you've made your point, now bugger off.
"They randomly strike out at a guitar as if they're having a stroke while recording, for fuck's sake."
Congratulations, you're a retard.
did I hit a nerve by just stating an opinion? Woe betide you, my friend, if you're gonna act like this to anyone who's opinion differs from yours.
I'm not a huge fan, as is made abundantly clear above. BUT I am particularly irritated by this continuous IT'S JUST NOISE argument. We get it, you fucktards, you don't like Sunn O))). Let's not repeat that again and again. It's boring. Especially coming from people who've listened to 30 seconds and gone 'urgh'.
Any music people don't like is 'just noise'. So please don't get on your high horse.
was a little condescending. But ''Let's not repeat that again and again. It's boring.'' completely echoes my feelings about the Sunn O))) record, of which I haven't voiced before this thread.
was a valid opinion rather than wholly incorrect? I couldn't care less whether you like the record or not, and personally I don't wank myself silly over every single outpouring from Sunn 0))), but you clearly haven't heard Monoliths if you think that was composed by "randomly striking a guitar." And if you have and you still make that claim, then you clearly fail even harder.
It´s really good
maybe listen to some sepultura instead?
The rest of the album is great, and I've always been a bit not bothered about Sunn 0))) before. So yeah, it's definitely worth getting.
I think Alice might be the best thing i've heard them do on record. Joint best with "My Wall" anyway.
but it covers everything from cavernous drones to swelling orchestral sounds so I guess it's a good starting point.
