ITT: We post albums that were recommended to us by /mu/ and discuss why they were not to our liking.
Travels With Myself And Another, by Future Of The Left for me. I thought the vocals cycled between just plain displeasing to the ear and then sort of boring, melody-wise. Falko is obviously clever and has buckets of personality, but there's only so many 'joke' songs that an album can throw at me before I get bored. And considering his stance on the mainstream and landfill indie/hardcore bands, the music came across as predictable and lacked the surprises that were spoken of. For me, at least. This goes doubly so for The Plot Against Common Sense, which I found myself cringing at more than a few times.
Let's try not to throw around memes or pasta in place of discussion, and also refrain from getting personal or taking offense at any opinions expressed.
