Yeah...one untitled song is bad enough, a whole album's worth is fucking stupid!

Like those Ghost songs by NIN. 36 songs, all without proper names. Prick.

That's not bad though, I actually thought it was cool. It's much more irritating when there's more then one Untitled track on an album, messes up scrobbling too.

I heard the () album of Sigur Ros is not supposed to be called "untitled". There was more of a concept behind it.
They felt it was more appropriate for the listeners to name each track the way it sounded to each one of them.
They didn't want to tell the people what to feel or think about when hearing their songs. It's more of a personalized album. [even in the inside of the album there was a 12 page booklet, so that the listener would draw whatever comes in mind].

I'm just a sucker for concepts.

Yeah I know, don't get me wrong I love the album, but if they wanted listeners to name each track by the way it sounded to them, why did they put other names in parenthesis next to the word 'Untitled'? I don't know, just a weird thing that annoys me. I guess ( ) is one of the more creative attempts at trying to base a concept around ....untitledness.

It wasn't NIN or Sigur Ros that drove me to this entry.

It was actually a band called The Puffy Areolas.

Just thought i'd throw that out

Oh, I wasn't aware of the track names next to the parenthesis.

Seems that's how the members refer to the tracks, but I don't know why we should care what the members name these tracks between each other.
