Substance and depth means emotion and meaning. It's the difference between "I Gotta Feelin" and "Hey Jude". Music is poetry put to sound waves. I'm a music critic and I get enjoyment from explaining why I think things are good and bad. I know convincing people of my personal taste is pointless but there is an objective side to music that is undeniable, that is what I criticise.
What the hell does this even mean? The only thing "backwards ass" is that sentence itself. Nothing I'm explaining has anything to do with "artsy fartsy" "philosophy" or "gimmickry". My critique is that music should be one (or several, collaborating) artists putting poetry to sound waves in an intimate expression of something. No, not everything has to be the musical equivalent of Citizen Kane.. the musical equivalent of Terminator 2, E.T. and Superbad are great in their own right and I'm not criticising anyone for liking something I don't. What I'm criticising is attitudes if you would read anything I wrote. Magical and I digressed, but my original point was that those who only watch one style for stupid reasons should really change their attitude and open their eyes.Originally Posted by mchapra
Oh and the award for the most retarded thing of the week goes to:
Words can't describe, man.... words can't describe....The fact that you look at it for "the art" and the "substance and depth" only makes you shallow.
