    He is the embodiment of the great shift from the Analogue Period preceding the 1990s to that of the Digital Age that came after the 1980s


    Not Jesus level but as a human he projected through music.

    It all sounds like sound tracks from bad b movies from the late 60s.

    But he doesn't just layer samples with a 808-kick

    He plays a grand piano sometimes or a guitar and really digs deep in the emotion of what is that is vibing. so much so People are apart of his mind-hive.

    It's fucking passionate.

    The Bends is still my favorite radiohead album. Johnny Greenwood is an underrated guitarist

    I was so hooked on In Rainbows when it came out.
    They along with Tenet Reznor (his Saul Williams colab) pioneered giving away their music for free or for whatever the fans wanted to pay, in the music industry that is.
    2007 was a good year for music.

    both those albums were pretty popular, they just saw how the industry was changing and didn't fight it

    Serious question. Does just under 34,000 copies sold equate to pretty popular with the way the industry changed?

    "Trent Reznor released some facts about the Saul Williams record he produced and then released digitally for $5 [nin.com]:

    Saul's previous record was released in 2004 and has sold 33,897 copies.
    As of 1/2/08, 154,449 people chose to download Saul's new record. 28,322 of those people chose to pay $5 for it, meaning: 18.3% chose to pay.

    Of those paying,

    3220 chose 192kbps MP3 19,764 chose 320kbps MP3 5338 chose FLAC"

    That's pretty good for an independent band.
    It's unrealistic to expect someone to sell millions if they aren't being heavily promoted by a huge record label.

    Me & My Brother by Ying Yang Twins (whoever the fuck they are) was the independent album of the year for 2004. It debuted at #11 on the Billboard 200 with approximately 62,000 copies sold in the first week released. It remained on the charts for 54 weeks and was certified 2x platinum by the RIAA with an excess of 2 million copies sold. So 34k is pretty good ?

    I missed the Saul Williams bit, thought it was referring to the Radiohead/NIN albums that were released with a 'pay what you want' digital model. As far as I know they all did fairly well.

    I never even listened to that one, never been a huge fan of NIN and thought 'Niggy Tardust' was a joke rather than an actual release at the time.

    You missed out, it's really good.

    fuck sakes. You're a real miserable piece of shit. stop being a grumpy old fuck. NIN or Trent solo and Thom Yorke are two great artist from the 1990s. Tool was another great experimental band. I liked the "Grunge" stuff like STP. I never digged Nirvana much. a few songs. but after the mid 1990s, music became shit. mostly boy and girl bands and pop shit. well into the first decade of 2K.

    but there are great bands out there. Underground is the way to find them. first in with the club bands before they make it big.
