albums/songs you feel your the only person in the world who understands

#1
couldnt find any other thread like this, looked around quite a bit.

i sometimes feel like im the only person who really understood the existential angst of alice in chains' self titled album. particularly the second half, that everybody thinks is so boring, i thought that that was actually the emotion core of the album.

yeah so, how about you?

I actually really appreciated I-Empire by Angels and Airwaves ... at first I thought it was shithouse though. I was sort of going through a depressing suicidal stage, and picked it back off the shelf and gave it a good listen, and, it sounds stupid, but I think that helped me get back on track and stop being such a dickhead. That album, to me, will now always be very special.

The new Seven album, Cymatics. I just know I'm the probably the only one who loves it this much

Then again, they aren't that big yet. Such a shame

Am I the only one who appreciates St Anger?

Not that Death Magnetic isn't better, but isn't St Anger better than the Black Album at least?

I've heard lots of people say that High and Dry by Radiohead is about drug addiction, but to me it sounds much more as if it is to do with someone whose friend/lover has died

I think you need to stop caring what people think about it. I stayed home all day today and masturbated like 5 times. Fucking blast.

presidents of the united states - II

everyone thinks it sucks in comparison to the s/t. truth is, it's a lot more musically interesting to me. the melodies are a ton better. not to say the s/t isn't good. it's phenomenal. but II is their prime. "supermodel" is the GREATEST pop-rock song ever written in the history of the universe.

as far as relating to that album i dunno, but ive always defined the album and their sound when they were a seattle band with the last few songs on that album. the last song is awesome. on topic, i feel theres more albums i dont understand that i try really hard to understand, like a lot of krautrock albums, brian eno albums, bowie albums, kraftwerk, all that stuff. i can see the potential but i dont get how people say theyre works of ****ing art.

edit: though captain beefheart is one i really understand

i think the problem with fans of a band is that they never want the band to experiment and step out of their "successful boundaries"

i personally feel that st. anger was actually a fun album.. albeit a thoroughly non-classic-metallica one.. just some shit to play while you throw yourselves against the wall of your room...

bring on the flaming.. sigh

Amen. But I think it's more the other way around, that Sigur Ros actually brings out understanding or at least awareness in their listeners. Is this making sense?

Good point, but that's only if you really sit down and listen to them. I'm sure if a couple of their songs shuffled on whilst my mates were around, they'd change it. Different songs, different moods though

Although untitled #8 can be played anytime.

AIC was the first band who came to mind when i saw the title of this post. The song sludge factory from that album is the one that speaks to me the most.

No...


But 1 of my all-time favorite/meaningful albums has got to be Zao's "Funeral of God", one of the great Death Metal albums imho.

I know it's a friggin' huge album, but The Wall by Pink Floyd just tears me to shreds and puts me back together with every single listen. The emotions of every single song are just so immense, and the story is just heartbreaking.
The Devil and God are Raging Inside of Me by Brand New captures the sinister side of youth so perfectly. It's just insane

Anything by The Mars Volta.

Big fan of Jodorowsky? There is nothing more difficult to understand than Frances the Mute. I'm convinced it's about Omar's relationship with his mother, which explains the title, the fact that there are plenty of references to when he dropped out of highschool and lived in Boston, and the references to Jodorowsky movies that involve mothers, like, "All my arms bled me blind." But no one takes me seriously.

I'm the only person in the world who can truly understand this:

Sometimes I feel like I'm the only one who feels music this intensely. Good job man

Yes

well, explain why.

i can understand how saying "nobody in the world understood this song like i did" could be viewed as an egocentric thing to say. but note that i said "sometimes" i felt that way, belying that i know other people do feel the same way about the music, but for the most part never hear of people who enjoy it on the same level i do.

all in all, i would say ive divorced myself from any concept of egocentrism, and therefore have done nothing wrong.

No need to get sand in your vaginas fellas it's just a question. If you don't like it go away. That goes for you too TS, you gotta expect some criticism if you post a thread in th pit.

The St. Anger album
Brand News - The Devil and God are Raging nside of Me

Bell x1 - In Every Sunflower (Never have i had such trouble listening to a verse in a song than i've had with the last verse in that song, it is amazing)
But there's no sense crying over every mistake, you just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

+ 10 for the St Anger positives. Its an excellent album!
And Mastadon's Crack The Skye i have a soft spot for. We Don't need to Whisper by Angels and Airwaves got me through some tough times.
