Is this more of a St Vincent album or a David Byrne album?
Yes I agree, it also has a lot of brass instrumentation, which certainly isnt part of St. Vincent music.
But for some reasons the songs i like the most are the ones that are sung mostly by st vincent, specially Ice Age.
It also feels a bit strange that Byrne hasnt realeased any other album since this collab, it's been 4 year already.
How did they do it, /mu/? How did they make an album of nothing but wacky nu-metal songs and got such praise for it?
>released at the height of nu-metal popularity
>ornette coleman reference to draw in faux-patricians
>featured on a tony hawk game to attract children
pretty obvious why this was a hit
Is he right, /mu/?
what are some good albums similar to pic related?
also what genre is this?
The actual genre is stoner-doom metal, but the album's music is more fast and aggressive than most stoner or doom bands.
The closest you'll get are the other High on Fire albums, especially Surrounded by Thieves.
the genre is epic stoner/doom, part of the doom metal branch
the band is obviously high on fire. you might also want to check out sleep (singer/guitarists other band) and their album holy mountain, electric wizard's dopethrone, st vitus, reverend bizarre, orange goblin, weedeater.
welcome to stoner/doom :)

What does this album actually mean? It's one of my favorite albums, and it's clear there is a theme that continues throughout the songs. The Wikipedia claims it's a dense concept album, but I can't actually find the story or actual meaning anywhere. Does anyone have any theories?
They're satirizing the idea of works (typically operatic or classical) appreciated long after the artist is relevant, hence the theory of obscurity. Every track is influenced by those ballads. That's just my opinion, though.

Best song/album? How good will album 4 be?
Tommorrow Never Knows is 50 years old
definitely not the birth of psych you fucking pleb
and the only reason its "drone" is because of the indian influence, i doubt it actually had any impact on modern western drone
great track though
Why is this allowed?
