Helpful/unhelpful isn't the same as agree/disagree. I can find an opinion I agree with unhelpful if it's poorly written or insipid. I can find an opinion I disagree with helpful if it gives me a different well-thought perspective.
It seems on this album that if you fall all over it in praise, you're helpful. If you honestly admit you don't like it, you're unhelpful. Sheesh.
I get why people love this. It's really challenging. I struggle with this as much as I do The Swans. Maybe I just don't get it, but it's not my cup of tea.
There is something so raw with this album. The tone, the atmosphere, the album flows so well and creates a very dark mood. A must listen.
"Spiderland" è un disco alternativo per davvero ( nessuna furbata, nessuna posa… ); è il suono del fuoco sotto la cenere, del mare in tempesta, ma sempre veicolato da canzoni che una forma, seppur molto personale, ce l'hanno.
Just one of the best albums ever recorded. And it introduced me to the post-rock genre.
Took me a while to get into it but I'm glad I did.
Strange how a bunch of knockabout college kids from a small town could create such an immensely uncomfortable record. From what I understand Brian McMahan was almost killed in a car crash prior to the recording of Spiderland, so in hindsight I guess the tone of the record makes a lot of sense.
From the opening plucks to McMahan's final gutteral growl of "I miss you!" it's obvious there was a feeling of helplessness hanging over the band during writing and recording, the same feeling that might haunt a captain on a doomed voyage. Everyone being at the mercy of an unknown, arbitrary fate is a truly unfavourable reality.
This is so far the darkest album I've ever listened to. They really succeed at creating an atmosphere with the odd time signatures and the creeping guitars and lyrics, it changes the way you can look at music.
Spiderland is a dark, brooding record that bleeds loneliness and the macabre. Listening to this record you will hear some of the most powerful, intelligent, and discomforting lyrics ever written. A powerful post-rock album that delivers a gut punch of angst and isolation, Spiderland felt a bit tedious at points, and dragged on longer than it should have, but it never failed to keep my attention and grab my heart.
Brilliant and unique record, often seen as one of the first post-rock albums of all time. Dark, creepy and at some points disturbing (like the ending of good morning captain). One which really makes you reflect once its over. One of my favourite albums of all time, even if it does make me a bit moody after a listen
Truly unique, Spiderland combines Sonic Youth's art-punk guitar fuzz with unconventional time signatures to create meticulously crafted instrumentals that are complimented by Brian McMahan's intensely visual storytelling. The album occupies far more space than its 40 minute run time; regardless of your usual genre exploration do not let this album pass you by.
