Overrated comes to mind, yet even that seems to be too much adulation for this man.
Yeah, well, you know, that’s just, like, your opinion, man
So apt, such a neat use of the Dude!
I am glad you find his music enjoyable. I love ambient music, I simply do not enjoy his compositions. Simply a difference of opinion, it makes your enjoyment no less valid than my opinion.
From where I’m at, encasing your opinion within an unwarranted insult pretty much invalidates whatever point you were trying to make with the statement.
There are much better and more effective ways to communicate that you don’t like somebody’s work than “saying that this is overrated would be too much adulation.”
I don’t believe it was an unwarranted insult as much as it was a momentary reflection of his work and music from where I sit! That said, the efficacy of my critique should matter little if you enjoy his work. You defended his music and I derided it. That said, I also enjoyed the shared music by another individual.
However I also applaud his courage or any artist for that matter that chooses to to display their creations for public consumption, ridicule, critique, or adulation.
Really, I recommend listening to his discography with your good ear.
One of the best Ambient Artists around…
Cheers, I actually enjoyed that.
This is my favorite podcast featuring one of my very favorite artists, and it definitely did not disappoint.
I’m excited to check this out. Darwin scored a huge guest for this one. One of my favorite artists with such a wide and varied career. His soundscape/drone solo work is really incredible.
Cortini definately has his place in the Ambient arena….though not my cup of tea, I have friends who love him…
Huge cred to Darwin, prob one of the best podcast on electronic music.
