Yup, that's what I mean. synths(especially cheesy 80's synths) annoy me. except if they sound like hammond organs, you know, what they use in ska.
Music entirely made up of sounds made by a computer just doesn't do it for me somehow :c.

What about music made up of sounds made by a computer that also contain vocals? I mean, for example, do either of these songs do anything for you:




I'm sure you can tell both of these songs are vastly different. One is a pop song, the other is very downtempo and glitchy. Electronic music in general encompasses so much, I just don't know how someone could find no joy in any of it.

I agree with this statement. Maybe we can also apply it to the music of the first six decades of the twentieth century and see if you can do a little musical 180 of your own.

Oh please, try harder. There are more good electronic albums made in the 2000s alone than there are good albums in general from before 1955 or so.

When I was a kid I thought emo was one of the worst genres out there...I never gave it a chance because of the image it had in mainstream culture back then. I went back to it in college and now it's one of my absolute favorite genres. (It doesn't hurt that there's been a revival going on.)

Maybe I was pissed off about something, but I actually listened to MMM two times so far since getting the disc last Summer...sober.

I can understand others reaching for the eject button and throwing the disc around after minute 5, but for some reason that album was right for that time.

Still have NOT made a 180 on it, though.

How do you know? Are you an expert of pre-1955 music?

What you're writing off is infinitely more diverse than electronica, so I find your distaste of music from a time period to be a bit silly.
