AP.net Interview: Minus the Bear

Posted by - 10:48 AM on 05/04/10
An interview with Minus the Bear can be seen here.
QuoteA record doesn't have staying time if there isn't other things you can pick up on as you listen. Sometimes you hear a record for the first time, and you're like, "Wow, this is amazing!" the first time. Often times that record doesn't stay with you as long as something you have to work a little bit harder at.

I think the "albums you have to work a little harder at "have notoriously been albums that I would consider my all time favorites.

yeah, totally agree. an album can be rad at first, but then they tend to fizzle out. maybe this is a product of over listening initially. but really, i think it says that an album has little depth. the greatest albums, The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Of Me, for instance, take much more time to get engrossed with because they are so deep. You can listen to TDAGARIM over and over and each time you find something new. That is what keeps people coming back for more. The greatest albums take time, but the reward is much greater.

Definitely need to pick up Omni today after work. I heard the first half and I thought it was badass.

this is the most true fact in music. This is why Mandala by RxB is my favorite album, took a couple listens to really get the feel, but my god, once it hits...it sticks with you forever. Omni is also like this too, along with the rest of MTB albums.

what an ignorant statement. it actually makes perfect sense if you read the rest of the quote.

Perfect sense it may make, but that makes it no less of a grammatical error.

Looking past the aforementioned grammatical error because I love their music so much.

...but why do I see "Planet of Ice" fitting the quote more than "OMNI"?

Because most people's standards are much lower than yours. OMNI doesn't fit this description at all because it's mind-numbingly simple. MTB made a big mistake going to Chicarelli, a guy pimping style over substance.. compound that with Alex Rose's uninventive synth and you've got an album that is not a Minus the Bear album in any traditional sense.
