As a serious question that I hope can be answered:

When does musical nostalgia end and progressive talent become recognized as reputable? Not to offend, but people like Threatis seem too pretentious to me. I thought music was an objective art?

I love 'the good days' too, but are you too cynical or lacking objectivity to understand what others may perceive as great entertainment. To a certain extent and not to cite the previous dubstep example but isn't that a bit ethnocentric to believe your genre of music may be superior to another persons, even if that music is within the EDM genre itself? Pretentiousness and a lack of objectivity towards music such as this just makes people look like an uncultured person.

While I understand some of you may not like every song that is posted here, as I do not myself, I thin kthat each song offers its own unique qualities and I find it astounding that when a song comes up someone does not enjoy that I hear things like "poo poo sucks bruh", "hahaha human being", "lol hgahahahaha".

Well I'm done with my rant, but maybe just maybe someone here can shed some light on how to properly critique music without being an uncultured neckbeard.

I know your post wasnt directed at me, but I think it's poo poo too. so...
It's soulless, and feels like many of the decisions within the track have been made because they're expected to be there, rather than they're there because it's right.
I dont feel theres any life to it. It's just a bunch of noises arranged in a way that fits in with a genre with enough variation to not be boring. It's born straight out of the era of music where it's now almost too cheap and easy to make professional sounding electronic music and it shows. Thats just how it makes me feel though, I find a lot of dubstep like that - maybe because it's still relativly new as far as a real genre is concerned, it's the cool thing to make (every music production forum is saturated with poo poo dubstep now), and theres relatively few people with massive amounts of experience making it.

New talent does exist, especially in house music. It's the best it's been for a very long time, and theres so much amazing stuff coming out all over the place at the moment.

This is how I feel about the Skrillex dubstep that everyone does(I know there's more dubstep than this, I'm just talking about the one that's done to death). It's predictable and uninspiring, and like you said it seems like those dubstep songs sound like they are only trying to sound like dubstep. This is what they do: Fast pace wobble song or slow song is played into a fast pace wobble drop. It's like those electro house songs (example) that are all about the drop, except while the formulas the same they at least can sound different. And it doesn't even make sense to me, why do they build up to the wobble, wouldn't it make more sense to build up by using the wobble?

Although an artist who has used the wobble interestingly is Siriusmo. Speaking of him, has anyone listened to the Pearls and Embarrassments albums? I want to hear some opinions on it.

It's really not my bag stylisticly, but a few quick things -
The synth is too noisy and lacks definition.
Theres very little groove or flow to it (which imo is the most important thing in dance music)
It sounds like you're trying to take a formula that would work for a band and just make it electronic, I think you could do with listening to more dance music and taking notes on progression. Although if you have and you're copying a US style I dont know/dont like, then whatever.
That being said, although I didnt like the track itself and it is a bit underdeveloped, the actual production quality is decent. Just keep listening to music and refining what you're doing.
It might help you to do more shorter things (1-2min) and play around with sounds a lot more if you're just diving in - it'll give you more room to experiment and figure out exactly what your way of doing it is.

Also this is techno - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ibbHMAS4NAQ&
It's quite a specific genre.

edit: did a lot of work today.

Thumbs up/down? The arrangement is too basic, it just builds, kicks in then dies off. But the general idea and what i'm going for is there.

Awesome, thanks for the input Cubicle!
It makes sense that it sounds like band formula, because we are bandmates that pretty much only play rock. Old habits die hard

this post misses the point. people post music in here for us to comment on and discuss. sometimes music that is posted is not really worth discussing because it hasn't explored new avenues or it hasn't done old ones well enough to be better than those that do


also so what if someone likes it, they can like it just fine and i can dislike it just fine. i can express my dislike with "lol human being" because it actually expresses a hell of a lot about how i feel about that song.
