Uh, unlike you to I listen to things before judging. I’ve listened to Beer Bongs and Bentley’s in full, Ive heard multiple singles he’s dropped throughout the years, and I tried the new album, realized it’s more of the same, and noped out of there.
How many Rapsody tracks have you heard from Eve? How about from Little Brother’s new album?
You’re literally judging music you’ve never even heard simply because it isn’t popular. That to me is a hell of a lot more of a clown move than anything I’ve said. Lord forbid I find music in a different way than you do based off genres and stuff I like.
What the hell are you talking about? All I said was I haven’t heard 90% of the artists you’ve listed. I never “judged” them as you are saying.
Quit makin **** up
You’re the one hating on post when you certainly have not listed to the whole album.
"Thankfully a lot of people don’t share your garbage opinion."
"I guess it's cool to hate on whats popular. Classic hipster mentality. I haven't heard of 90% of the artists he mentioned in his post."
You in these two quotes discredit other music and call it "garbage". That to me sounds like a judgement of music you have never heard which is exactly what you are accusing me of... even though your statement is false and I have heard Post Malone's music before, and I have listened to an album of his before (Beerbongs & Bentleys), multiple singles, and I gave the new album a chance and I did not like any of them.
That is the issue I have with people using popularity or awards as a reason for why [insert artist/album] is the best. Odds are those people have never listened to anything outside of what they hear on a radio therefore it is very difficult to take their opinions seriously. Yes, it is quite alright to only listen to the radio music or whatever Spotify recommends; your musical choices do not matter to me and I am not gonna be offended if you never listen to an album I like. If you like what you listen to, then you have accomplished something and got enjoyment from it and that is what music is for. But when you hear things like "Post Malone released the best album of 2019", it sounds a lot like when causal basketball fans claim that "Russell Westbrook is the best player in the NBA. He averages a triple double
man!". Sure, you have the MVP and the first triple double season in 50 years to back up your claim, but anyone who truly watches and cares about basketball knows for sure that Russell Westbrook is NOT the best player in the NBA.
Listening to Post Malone is fine
, he makes extremely basic, catchy music which is (in my opinion) great to have on with friends or play at a party because its simplistic in nature, easy to sing along to, and is not really talking about or doing anything that takes a lot of effort to listen to. I can agree that the music I like is not really music you want to listen to with other people because it is a more of an intimate/solo listening experience. I am not naive enough to think that Freddie Gibbs "Practice", Quelle Chris "Straight Shot", or Billy Woods "CheckPoints" are going to be a radio regular or a popular track that people are going to hear come on the stereo and get excited about; they are meant for a totally different listening audience and experience.
So that being said, Post Malone has its place, but it certainty is not the "best" album of 2019. Yes, it may be the most popular and most well known and be enjoyed by the most people, but it is not the best.
