Oh! That! No, no, no, you're not ready to step into The Court of the Crimson King. At this stage in your training an album like that could turn you into an evil scientist.

Prodigy is infinitely better than Skrillex...
Phish makes me happy.  It's as simple as that.

RIP Ray, but WTF!!!

I'm pretty sure he faked his death actually. He MC's pub trivia games in Middlebury.

for people who like music that pushes boundaries and gets weird, I find it incredibly lame that you all hate on Skrillex. 


You like the Grateful Dead, but you hate Skrillex?  Skrillex is taking Space and putting into a dance music format.  Shit is catchy and creative as hell.


Actually, maybe I shouldn't be surprised.  When I saw Skrillex, the most musically-close resemblance it made to me was to the metal days of my youth....  the hard, aggressive slamming energy.  It isn't peace-y love music.  Its fucking wild, aggressive, extreme music. 


But for people who like the anti-musical noise of '92-'95 Tweezer/Bowie/Mike's Song cacophony, I'd expect a lot of you to at least recognize and respect the risk Skrillex is taking in making music like that.



For you all to say he's just making noise is to equate yourself to the people who say Phish just noodles.  You guys are better than that.  Don't be hypocrites, mannn

Skrillex sucks.

/the end
It's like BJ Galore over here!


I use records for that and don't have to justify it to my friends.

Everything I've heard by Skrillex sounds the same: harsh, grating robo sharts.
there is no explanation
it's all inside your head

Skrillex.

Arranging a bunch of sound-effects in a rhythmic pattern, I don't consider "pushed boundaries".  Its 21st Century "Beat-Boxing", ie. make a bunch of sounds to a beat.

But I sometimes dig music like that, so I listened again (to the Doors track above).  For music that has infinite potential (number of samples/sounds usable), the music is really shallow.  Just a beat and some sound effects.  No ambience, no counterpoint in the bass line, no multi-rhythms... 

I would listen to more, but the first serving didn't do it for me...

Gumbo, just when I think you couldn't lose any more credibility when it comes to music taste, you come out with this.  :shakehead:
I suspect putin and trump have something to do with this
that's great. people are stupid.
My records are my media for music.

You're entitled to your opinion but I'm going to laugh at it.
