    A top 5 of Necks albums is impossible, as pretty much everything I have heard is amazing! It depends on my mood which one I prefer more, Drive-By, Chemist and Hanging Gardens are more groove-based. Open and Silverwater are more spacious, ambient like. Aether, Mosquito and Townsville are quite lush, more Reichian/jazzy. Mindset is very dense and slightly claustrophobic. Atheneaum... is The Necks in all their glory in a live setting... Too many good things to choose from, really!

    Townsville doesn't get enough credit. Townsville is by far my favourite.

    Żadna charakterystyka nie odda finezji ich muzyki, cierpliwie budowanej, operującej niedopowiedzeniami dramaturgii, kojącej, ale zdecydowanie nie ckliwej atmosfery. fajna recenzja w Aktiviście: http://aktivist.pl/blog/the-necks-kompozycja-otwarta/

    Best album(s) for me are Drive By, Hanging Gardens and Chemist, but they are all very good. I also like the track Mosquito a lot, it is relaxing as Aether, but even better IMHO. Silverwater and Mindset are more complex and dense, which is good, but play them less the others. Great music to work to!

    Best album? Easy as pie. Aether.

    I just listened to their 2007 Bimhuis live set. Man, I wish I could see them live sometime. Last time they were in Finland was in 2001, so slim chance I think.

    Saw these guys last night for the first time, amazing twin set, their recorded releases only scratch the surface of their true sound.

    Selfishness implies that you deny someone else something, digital copies are infinite. If anything it's selfish to own the last copy of a limited edition. Just as it is to keep a famous painting hidden in a private collection.

    März 2013
  • optimistic_tour

    That response in no way addresses or rebukes what I said, jbthazard. You're a certifiable cheap bastard if you think you shouldn't have to pay to own art. Sure, everyone should have an equal chance at experiencing it - that's why the proliferation of streaming services and internet radio and youtube and other channels of experience is an amazing thing. But it's the epitome of selfishness to think you should have all the albums you want at "real thing" quality for absolutely no price. And please stop comparing this to painting; there is no analogous framework here, which is why you can't make sense of the comparison. You do, in fact, pay to go to a museum (even if it's via taxes or a donation) to see paintings - although I should probably say "people do" since you clearly wouldn't spend money on it.

    "Not to mention the obvious fact that many bands who exist today would have much less exposure/prominence without the internet, and subsequently less money. " Exactly, a lot of artists who had some success in the 90's and a subsequent drop in CD-sales in the 00's complain about piracy. Have they seriously considered how much the competition has increased since then, especially bands who haven't updated their sound?

    Februar 2013
  • JBThazard

    Paintings are in a sense recorded art, too. We don't buy tickets to "concerts" in which we witness an artist recreate one of his/her paintings the way we watch musicians recreate/reperform their own works. We have always valued art in both senses: experiencing it with the presence of the artist, and without it.

    Januar 2013
  • JBThazard

    optimistic, that doesn't sound right at all. Music is not infinite either, be it physically or temporally. One can easily repeat a song over and over just as they can repeat the act of looking at a painting over and over, both are equal in their quantified finiteness or infinitude, whichever fits better. Digital quality, in terms of representing the "real thing" also concerns paintings and music. Mp3s are technically speaking not the real thing since they are lossy, data is deleted for the sake of space. High resolutions, for audio or images, is sufficient for recreating the "real thing". Art and the very act of appreciating it becomes an esoteric and elitist activity without ways of spreading it to the masses, be it via radio, internet, etc.. Not to mention the obvious fact that many bands who exist today would have much less exposure/prominence without the internet, and subsequently less money.

  • optimistic_tour

    We should go back to the days when, if you wanted to hear music, someone had to be in the room playing it for you. Because that's what would happen if no one valued recorded art. The analogy toward paintings does not fit. A painter creates a physical piece that is not infinite - copies seen on a computer screen are just an approximation, and its perceived value lies in the singularity of its existence as much as its artistic merit; the musician's recording is intangible and repeatable - you are getting the "real thing" whether it's mp3 or vinyl or tape. That being said I think paying for mp3s is bullshit because I do value something tangible with my purchase.

    "We want people to fall for our music because they somehow heard it" - i don't get it. but i'm glad to read that they make good money. always thought they might be to fameless for that.

    August 2012
  • JBThazard

    I agree with frags. I think a musician should definitely keep the right to have the ability to earn money off their business, but perhaps I suffer from cognitive dissonance because the idea of paying money for art is ridiculous to me. What if people began charging money for digital copies of famous paintings? Sounds ridiculous to any of you? We do the same with digital copies of music. Is it really right to capitalize on art and say that only those who afford it are worthy of listening? Should music be legally owned by musicians/record labels and sold with monetary priorities? I'm glad more musicians are beginning to become lenient towards file sharing, or better yet releasing their music for free.

    August 2012
  • frags

    It's going to hurt if you have trapped yourself in an ideology where sharing is stealing and fans are customers. Some musicians follow a different ideology which recognizes the internet as a positive force. For them it doesn't hurt, it's a good feeling.
