So I saw the album artwork of Kanye West's new album...



Reminds me of one of Foo Fighters' album covers



So do you think original ideas for album covers are running dry?

No, both of those bands suck and are unoriginal in every thing they do.
None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.

Btw, Kanye West has a NEW album already? Man, now I know where all this crap music keeps coming from...

Grow up. If you'd be a little more open minded you'd maybe see some of his songs are written brilliantly.

I am open-minded, if you'd know how many genres/bands there are in my collection you wouldn't be thinking otherwise...
When "Graduation" came out, it got rave reviews on some major music blogs, including Pitchfork Media... Considering their critical stance to commercial music, I was surprised to see that great review. So, I downloaded the album (try before you buy!), but I didn't like it at all.

It's got nothing to do with close-mindedness. I listened to the album, and I failed to find any musical brilliance in it... That's my opinion, and I jokingly stated my opinion in my post above. Sorry if it offended you, but my opinion is just as valid as yours.

Cheers

rappers steal music,beats,and riffs. now artwork too, when will it end?


It's called sampling and it's perfectly legal and a perfectly viable method of music production.

I happened to think Graduation was great, not impressed with his two latest singles though. I wasn't offended, but you should probably say 'I think his music is crap' rather than saying 'it IS crap.'

I never intended to say his music was crap. As you can see, this is kind of a joking statement about Kanye bringing a new album out already, and I refer to the fact that I didn't like it, but I thougth it came off rather jokingly. I suppose it didn't

You can make 20 of those songs in 2 days.
And then make a bunch of money from each of them.

i use sampling in the **** i make douchebag. theres a difference between a sample and stealing a whole drum beat or an entire riff. i.e. junk as rap song out a while back using zeppelin. junk rap song a while back using crazy train. a sample is supposed to be a small portion, not the entire rhythm note for note. write your own music and go "get your own learn", what that means i dont know. im not down with tha gangsta talk like you mr. rap superstar.

Firstly, shut up.
Secondly, sampling is sampling. Drum beats are copyrighted now are they? News to me. You don't like rap, I get it. Don't bash it just because you don't understand it. You shouldn't feel threatened because someone plays around with a song you like, they mean no disrespect. An artist must like a song or respects it enough to sample it and use it in their own works.

i didnt say i sample music. i sample sounds using a digital recorder. not music someone else already arranged. i sample say a rock hitting aluminum siding. there are many ways to sample that dont require the stealing of someone elses rhythm. good thing your here all night cuz you have alot to learn.

Using parts someone else's music in your song legally, giving credit where it's due is sampling.

Using someone else's music claiming it's yours without permission is plagiarism.

that is not sampling, that is recording.

you do have the right to not like that kind of music, but if you put your argument in good english people are more likely to listen to your point of view.

also, try and keep the thread on topic or it will be closed. if you want to argue with someone about the merits of rap, use profiles or PMs
