I listen to lyrics very closely. I love to listen to lyrics because i like to understand and pick up puns in the music that other people dont pick up on. However after I read the lyrics I listen to the and of course the singers voice to match with it.
But everytime I listen to a song even if I know Something To Say - M.O.B (Massive Of Brooklyn) - For True Listeners of the Funk (Cassette), I pull up the lyrics. No, I do not pay attention to the lyrics before I like a somg, Something To Say - M.O.B (Massive Of Brooklyn) - For True Listeners of the Funk (Cassette). First, I pay attention to the beat and how the song goes, and if i like the song I would listen to the lyrics more.
I always listen to the lyrics of the songs that I listen to. Only listening to the music instead of the lyrics defeats the purpose. I admit that a lot of times the melody is better than the words, but in that case, just listen to an instrumental. I listen to lyrics to the music I listen sely. The outragous metaphors and similies Something To Say - M.O.B (Massive Of Brooklyn) - For True Listeners of the Funk (Cassette) put a smile on my face.
I listen to lyrics very areully. I love listening to lyrics, especially when they make sense and tell stories. Yes I listen closely to lyrics. They put all kinds of thing in lyrics. You would be walking around worshiping the devil and not even know it. Song lyrics are very important to me. I listen to lyrics, my favrotie example is shake me down by cage the elephant. It is a prime example of what i feel when i alone lik ethere are no people around and closer to myself in a saddened way….
I listen lyrics sometime almost I dont listen without lyrics. Because I have sound system that why i like to hear music and bass too. I enjoy listen music wiht lyrics. I usually pay more attention to the beat and maybe one certain phrase. Lyrics are amazing. It portrays a story from the singer or lyricists point of view. I think the police using them to solve crimes is kind of a waste of the music.
I pay fairly close attention to lyrics. However, I do not struggle or strain to figure them out if they are incoherent or otherwise unclear to me. With some music, the music takes center stage; in other songs, I may be enthralled by a voice, a lyric, a guitar riff, a solid bass drum Think Adam and the Ants or Bow Wow Wow. That is the great thing about music. There is something for everyone, no matter your taste. The lyric that affects me most is one that tells my story.
Their first single, True Romanceis positively stellar and perfectly evokes all the things I loved about them years ago, yet somehow manages to feel amazingly fresh at the same time. What happens to the neurotic emo singer that grows up? This is probably why I keep coming back to this album. Nostalgia pulled me in, but the way it speaks to my own experiences as an unwilling adult is what keeps me listening.
As a whole, the album is a little unbalanced, starting strong but getting darker and more depressing as the track list progresses. The opening songs of Circles and Wires and True Romance start the album out on a high note. But when you hit the contemplative Everyone Will Die Something To Say - M.O.B (Massive Of Brooklyn) - For True Listeners of the Funk (Cassette) track 5, you start to realize that this is a different kind of album than they would have released eight years ago.
Pretty heavy stuff, I must say, and the mood only partially recovers in the closing track entitled Floating Down the River. Surprisingly, this all feels even more introspective than their previous work and throughout the album there is a keen awareness of the passage of time and the changes caused by it. However, despite the slightly depressing finish, there is some major potential here, which renews my faith in the viability of the post-punk rock alternative genre.
Timelines by Motion City Soundtrack. Moving away from the heavier read: soul-crushing stuff, we now come to the amazing riot girl rock of Wild Flag. This indie rock supergroup if there really is such a thing is made up of former members of Sleater-Kinney, Helium, and The Minders. Devoid of all the usual synthpop and electronica influences I so often gravitate towards, they feel like a real successor to Siouxie Sioux and the Banshees.
Tough and intelligent, empowered and full of bravado, with just a touch of vulnerability, the result is downright brilliant. The album is filled with strong guitars, pounding drums, Something To Say - M.O.B (Massive Of Brooklyn) - For True Listeners of the Funk (Cassette) bass lines, and the clever use of a Hammond organ that completely sidesteps being cheesy.
Clocking in at only 41 minutes, my only real complaint about this album is that it is always over too soon. Black Tiles by Wild Flag. And last but not least, my absolute top album of is Master of My Make-Believe by the fantastic Santigold. This is a juggernaut of an album from start to finish.
Well-balanced in both genre and mood, she ranges from boastful, arrogant, and tough as nails, to quiet, introspective, and understated. Everything, and I mean everythingis fair game.
This is evident in every aspect of the album, from the music, to the lyrics, to the album cover, which features her in some of her many and varied guises, including an oily looking man in a suit lounging in a leather chair, two bikini-clad amazon gatekeepers flanking him, and a grinning country noblewoman posing in a massive portrait painting hanging in the background.
She is everything and all.
