À propos de moi

I find bizarre "academic" composition stuff like Gentle Giant the most fascinating, though I honestly don't know crap about music from an academic perspective. But this draw to music that tries to be "interesting" or "fascinating" rather than catchy or pleasant or danceable or whatever is probably why I have a lot of progressive rock and jazz. Specific emotions are probably more of a secondary draw for me: I love despair and pensive sadness; I love Marillion and Porcupine Tree.

I really appreciate great, energetic musicianship; chemistry within a band. I also sometimes like the pop stuff that's been meticulously engineered to be as pleasantly harmonic and catchy and listenable as is possible.

I usually get kind of bored with post-rock and ambient stuff. A lot of death metal and gangsta rap are very musically intense, like I'm getting assaulted, and I don't like that either—I'm drawn to various negative emotions, but things with an "angry" vibe are relatively uncommon in my collection. I also probably won't hang on to albums with hateful or stupid lyrics.

I do try to avoid listening to things where the primary draw is something other than the music itself—such as band members that are insane, or funny, or who wear absurd costumes. But I also sometimes listen to game soundtracks, I guess because I'm a weeaboo. There's an intellectual honesty behind the idea of "program music", though, so I'm not too worried about associative reasons for liking songs and whether or not I'd like this or that "in a vacuum".

The appreciation of music is a complicated thing, and every rule I've suggested for my own tastes probably has some big caveat somewhere. Opeth is violent, and angry, but also sad, dramatic, and numinous! The same goes for SOIL & "PIMP" Sessions—they're abrasive, but thrilling. These are some of my favorite bands.
