The Morally Virtuous Not Listening To Snippets Club

#1 Post by York Minster » Wed 08 Aug 2012, 11:26 pm

This is the thread where we can all gab and help each other not listen to shitty quality 30 second snippets that give us false impressions of songs.

I have to admit though, I'm pretty close to listening. Join the clubbbbb

"What happened to the way you was rappin' when you was scandalous
That Canibus turned into a television evangelist"
Plus he raps with his regular voice [BOOSH! BOOSH!]

As one barred from entry to this club, could I just say that the snippets are actually in pretty excellent quality?

No?

Ah. Sorry. I'll get my coat.

Sound quality wise I think they sound great, but the content... It's a mixed bag for me.

Err, I'll get my coat as well. Sorry!

You can say it, GWTH, as long as you don't declare a track to be of a certain quality in general. Best to say "the snippet it makes it sound as if the song may be..." Ah, but we're all too excited to use such modifiers.

I'm not posting. I'd hate to inflict you on the others.

I think this is the first time I can understand an entire Drico post without a dictionary.

To be fair, I don't think Drico uses all that much hi-falutin language.

But, hey, thanks Drico. I'll take what support I can get...I think... :|

Scaps, the sound quality is AMAZING, the songs are AMAZING, listening to snippets is AMAZINGbecauseittotallyskews your sense of the song when you first hear it in full, which means the album and its songs take longer to settle in, which gives the album an even longer 'intense rotation phase'...

Consider it my service to the forum. If I shut up, you don't listen to the snippets and everyone is spared your polls about songs nobody has heard in their entirety. You're a winner, I'm a winner. Enjoy it while it lasts.

Enter my overly-long post about how we all have different phenomenological reactions to music processing.

I've never done snippets of PSB from any of the last albums. I wasn't keen on the chorus from All Over The World the first time I heard it in the 9 minute Brits Awards mix, and it stayed that way. If you were to sail way way back to my post about the Winner snippet, I actually had some nice things to say about it.

I'm still "holding on", but I probably won't much more. I think what bothers me is, there is always a memory for me associated with hearing a song on first listen. And that memory seems kind of crap when it's "I heard all the 30 second snippets". I don't know :(

To be fair to me, there have been way more polls by others recently. In fact, I feel my "poll-making mantle" is in jeopardy (shit, even Patrick just made one the other day). But I will try to keep it all :gag: :gag: :gag:
