What makes one fundamentally different from the other? Fucking nothing, that's what.
    The moment Barnes and Nobles creates a "Hyper-punk Pastoral-fi" section is the day this comparison holds water.

    If there were a couple more adjectives i might agree with you. But black metal and doom metal are distinct enough for a fusion to be a valid subgenre i think.

    I'm not "anti-label", you brick—fantasy, sci-fi, etc, are not the same thing as "dark metaphysical fantasy" or "dystopian clockpunk". Literature doesn't tend to stoop to such ludicrous extremes because they're UNNECESSARY.

    Such extreme categorisation is also used for fiction books.

    Sub-genres of Sci-fi literature:-
    Cyberpunk, Neo-Cyberpunk, Steampunk, Ribopunk, etc.

    And it's similarly idiotic (at least if taken too seriously).

    Define "taken too seriously" because I think that may be the crux of the matter here.

    Actually, no you know what? Categorization- outside of its function as a descriptor- is for the benefit of the people who actually care about the form of media being categorized. Don't care about metal? Then you're not going to give a shit about death/doom or anything like that. Don't care about cyberpunk? Then you're not going to care if something's neo-cyberpunk or whathaveyou.

    And that's fine. But don't act like because something has a lot of subgenres that it somehow is impeding on anything.

    I have a broad knowledge of metal's many subgenres and fusion genres because I actually give a shit about that kind of music. Of course, you can say "heh, metal is dumb" and swirl your snifter of brandy and read Irvine Welsh every night but that doesn't make metal any weirder than other genres with a lot of subclassifications.

    Stitch was right about The Antlers' new disk. Hospice is a jaw dropper, and I love it, but I hate it, it's well-written, and it's not an easy ride to the end. The epilogue makes me feel dead inside.

    Portugal. The Man knows how to do Beatlesesque, oh yes honay. This song is possibly even more Beatlesesque than the Beatles ever were. Immensely catchy shit.

    This is a very unsettling album.

    Yeah, I've only really listened to the disc as background music while dicking around in Photoshop, and frankly I'm terrified to turn it up and follow along properly.

    I started it today but it's too quiet, I couldn't hear it over the bus.

    Meanwhile, Oneida's Rated O is rocking so hard (and so long).

    Oh fuck. It is a lot better when you read the lyrics. Why on earth they didn't tune up the singers voice so you can actually HEAR HIM when you're listening to the song I do not understand. Musically this album is not interesting enough to keep me listening. Too dreamy for me.

    (only listened to Kettering and Bear tho)

    Oh, I agree. That's what I meant when I said it's not an easy ride. It's a hell of a difficult listen once you've gotten to absorb the lyrics.

    It's not all dreamy though. Like the Pitchfork review says, it's a combination of ambient and anthemic. There's a contrast to the styles going on which lends itself well to the story as a whole.

    I'd suggest taking the album in in one go if you can, instead of the odd song here and there.

    Agreed. Print out the lyrics, crank the album on some headphones, and proceed to get thoroughly fucked up.

    I did this shortly before bedtime last night and had the worst dreams ever

    I havent heard the music, but those liner notes seem the height of prententiousness to me.

    -ok have listened to some of it now, I was wrong, it is pretentious, but in a good, melancholy way.
    Bear is my fave at the moment, great chorus.

    I watched Grosse Pointe Blank this evening - my favourite movie of all time; never ever get bored of it.

    Anyway, the Pete Townshend: Let Love Open the Door is a phenominally good tune...

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vF1sVrFCkrY

    Sure its the love theme of the movie; but that doesnt detract at how good it is...give it a listen

    You realize the beginning riff of that song is a total cover of his own previous song "Substitute". Even so, he is a brilliant songwriter, also a pedo
