I Cant Go Back To Myself - Doom (7) - Incompetent ... (Vinyl, LP)
I mean, most of it was about stopping wars and that side of it, and some science fiction stuff. There wasn't that much Satanic stuff, and what there was it wasn't exactly for the devil or anything like that; it was just around at the time and we just brought it to people's attention.
The whole song is against drugs. The first CD contained a digital remaster in the deluxe edition, and the second CD also included the quadraphonic mix of the album folded down into stereo. The third and fourth CDs included two previously unreleased concerts from Montreux and Brussels respectively. Both concerts were widely available on bootlegs prior to their official release, and has early live versions of songs that would later appear on Paranoid.
In addition to the remastered album, quadraphonic mix and unreleased concert recordings, the set included a book with information about the making of the album, as well as a poster and a replica tour guide from the era.

Heh, we are jumping the gun a little here. Quote from: adamghost on June 27,PM. Definitely Carl on What a day OK, I'll buy that. Any idea why he came in for that one line, Andrew? Ah, yes, I know the part you mean. Well, we'll leave it till we get there.
Its a pretty prominent vocal She's my little Deuce Coup. You dunno what I've got! I think its fairer to call Dennis' ending note on Grad. Day "off mic" and not "off key". Jon: Ha! Coupe is just his voice most prominent amongst the harmonies, and shorter, t'boot! Quote from: John on June 28,AM. Let's take a vote amongst the thread regulars, I think that's the fairest way to do it Although I'm irregular I see the argument for Brian on LDC's chorus, but I feel like his vocal is too "blended" into the other vocals to get credit.
Whereas, on IGA Brian's chorus vocal is more separated and distinct from the "get around, round, round You know what you should do John? Once an album has been debated and settled you should add the results to your first post. That way it will be easier to go back and look without having to hunt all over the thread. Good idea. I was thinking that when we've done it, we ask the mod to split the albums only into one thread and then I'll rename this "Definite Vocal Thread Discussion".
So an argument could be made on technical grounds that the IGA chorus is the lead vocal, and on LDC, it's the top part of the harmony arrangement. I don't personally have a vote, though. Makes no nevermind to me You certainly do have a vote, everyone should contribute, and for what it's worth, I think you summed up the argument best.
Brian's voice is the loudest component of the harmonies most if not all of the time. Quote from: John on June 28,PM. I just meant to say that I didn't have a preference. He is?
Anyone else wanna confirm that? I've had to move my lesser-listened-to CDs out of the way because I have a tot with busy hands, so I can't find my copy of the Christmas album at the moment.
Any more confirmation re: all five Beach Boys on the close harmony accapellas? I'm just going by my ears as far as the Lord's Prayer. Listen to the lower parts closely. My favourite album! A couple of points: I'm not overly thrilled with that many asterisks, but any other symbol looked wrong.
Brian is right. Ignore the liner notes and listen to it I put it on repeatedly and I'm sure that's Brian's voice. Its always sounded like Brian to me as well. Lots O'people here will say otherwise though. On the Today! I have nothing to add. Looks perfect to me.
Does that count? On "She knows me too well" Mike seems to sing a rather prominent back-up "She knows me These are good. The asterisk level is going to be off the charts though! I've initiated a new feature I've called close-up - it'll serve us well on line-by-line readouts of tracks like Wind Chimes and She's Goin' Bald Quote from: John on July 02,AM.
I'm not overly thrilled with that many asterisks, but any other symbol looked wrong. Close-ups: excellent idea, will certainly be useful later on. Although my personal preference would be to do that more often, even on this album: for example the choruses of Kiss, me baby and Help me R h onda, where the leads aren't exactly sung by resp. With all those asterisks it's a bit hard to quickly look something up.
I have to count all those asterisks now. Are we sure it's Dennis who sings "Help, me Rhonda, yeah! It sounds like more than one person to me. Quote from: shelter on July 03,AM. Quote from: Guy on July 03,AM. Quote from: pixletwin on July 03,AM.
Instead of multiple ass-terisks, why not try Doe on July 03,AM. I really like the new number system John. Why wasn't Brian on it? I guess Bruce had to be on it somewhere to justify his face on the album cover.
I think it's probably because that was the live arrangement that Bruce is on there On The little girl I once knew, why credit Mike with "bass vocal"? Wouldn't "spoken word line after verses" or something be more appropriate?
Also I'd mention Bruce doing a call-and-response during choruses, like he did on California girls. It seems Brian had a knack of using Bruce for these respones; there is a line from California girls to follow-up single Little girl I once knew and God only knows. Mike's credit is for "Split, Man! It's pretty prominent and I was trying to find a good way of putting it. As to the other point, done. Quote from: John on July 04,AM.
Quote from: John on July 05,AM. On that new stereo mix, Carl begins the tag, though. But I don't accept that as the "real" one. I thought Denny's bit was the low bit when all the backing vocals start in the second verse; Brian said he devised a way of singing through cupped hands or something like that as if he was imparting confidential information Well, someone's singing those answering lines. My guess is Dennis, or maybe Carl. Dennis sings the "run run reooohh" on the tag of WIBN and should be credited, he also sings major parts of the bass vocal "be doo be" when the song slows down.
That was a bit tricky. I put the songs for convenience in their BWPS running order, as much as been released, but this is one "album" where I'd appreciate suggestions. I'm surprised that I'm more confident on Smiley Smile :D. Wait a freaking second! Those are solo lines, I contend that they shouldn't just be ignored :angry. What do you mean, "Oh, we could be married"? That's not Mike, it's Brian echoed by Alan isn't it? Going back to Today!
Listen to the stereo remix - plain as a pikestaff. I don't know. To be honest, I put my trust in my own ears more than what Brian says. I think it's Brian. It's got the same tone as the half-mumbled, hushed tones you hear when he talks on session tapes. Brian only made me think about it, but didn't convince me. Can we take a consensus -everyone reading this, listen to it three times and tell us what you think.
Is it Carl or a soft-spoken Brian? I've not seen the clip for some time, but on the TV show, doesn't Carl mime the 'I love you' bit? No matter, it's Carl on the tape. Quote from: John on July 06,AM. Anything else? Ha, my wife and second opinion thought it was very Carl-like. If you have ever heard Carl speak especially from the 60's, it is him all over. I have an idea I used to think it was Carl, until I half-heard it while surfing the net. I think because it's so soft, you'd think Carl, because we're thinking of stuff like the contrast between the soft lead on GOK compared with the brasher sound of Brian.
But like someone else said, it's a pretty soft vocal all round. And I'm pretty sure it's Brian. I'll add that soonest. I think its like how every one assumes Paul sings the high part on "I wanna hold your haaaaaaand " at the end of each verse when its actually John. PLMW; it's gotta be Carl, always has been, always will be.
It wouldn't make sense. To my ears Back to the discussion of Wouldn't it be nice; I agree Dennis is prominent on the tag. I'm not at home, so I can't look it up. Quote from: Guy on July 08,AM. I guess we can always go back. But I still think it's Brian. Four to three for Brian by my count. Quote from: John on July 08,AM. Why would they give Dennis an entire line like that when all of the others are split up?
And it seems that Al would get the end of the second verse since he handled the end of the first verse, just like how he sings all of the first answering "wind chimes" by himself. Anyway, that's my two cents. The Beatles were doing experiments with "random" at the same time too. Judging by how stoned they sound, their "logic" may make sense to them and them only.
I fear that your "drug" argument fails to sway me in regards to the "Wind Chimes" vocal arrangement. In other words, I respectfully disagree, sir! I still think that other bit is Dennis, though I Cant Go Back To Myself - Doom (7) - Incompetent . (Vinyl a chance it could be Brian, it just sounds so much like Dennis. I'm just hedging my bets really.
Brian's very prominent in the wacky middle-eight of "Wonderful" - I once worked out what he was saying, something like "let's go for the record No the girls are Marilyn and Diane, I could tell that the very first time I heard it. PLMW is still ongoing. And then there's the Wind Chimes thing. There is no way that is Al on wind chimes. I too vote for Carl and Brian a little heavier on Carl, to my ears.
I'll put that in when I do the footnote, thanks! Soooo: Where do we stand on the rest of the Wind Chimes question? AGD, what's your take? Is the whole "Close your eyes And "It's so peaceful Also, who is it singing the "Won, won, wonderful" girly bit? Denny, yes Carl, yes The girly bit sounds pitch-shifted to me, like they did on "She's Goin' Bald".
Doe on July 10,AM. Let The Wind Blow: "Let the bees make honey Sounds alot like Brian to me. As in, the lead vocal in that second to last section? The last being that instumental coda on the fade. At the end of it, when he goes into the "Baby you know that I To me, of course. The end of the bees bit sounds like Brian - the "But don't take her out of my life" bit What about that final I Cant Go Back To Myself - Doom (7) - Incompetent .
(Vinyl don't take her out of my life" before "Please keep her out of my liiiife" Doesn't it sound a little different from the other times the line is sung? Not saying it's not Brian Sounds a little "rougher. Not in that section, by the way.
At the very end of the song before the fade out. As in: Let the rain fall Let the grass grow Let the moon glow On The fallen snow But don't take her out of my life Please keep her a part of my life. I don't hear Dennis at all there. Brian could be a lot rougher than Dennis when he wanted to Dennis voice had a gruffness to it but it was always sweet. Even at its most scorched. My vote: Brian. Quote from: No. Fourteen on July 10,AM. How She Boogalooed It is definitely Alan.
He admitted to that in an ESQ maybe ? He said something to the effect of that the song was written too high for Carl to sing, so he Alan sang it. Doe on July 09,PM. Carl's main thing on that song was the spoken bits reflecting Brian's falsetto lines. Totally agree with you on that one. That's definitely Brian at the end. Wow, that's Mike on those Wild Honey leads? I honestly thought they were Brian. Go Mike! Don't know why the dueling Al comments, but I remember this having come LP) before.
It only sounds like Al to me in spots perhaps the first two linesotherwise it sounds totally consistent with Carl's other leads on the album. Listen to the words "reelin'", "affection", etc. Al never sang like that; his voice has a reedier texture. Carl did. The quote about Carl having Al sing it because it was too high for him doesn't make sense to me because a Al's name comes first as primary songwriter and b Carl's base vocal range was, if anything, higher than Al's even though they both could hit pretty high notes I'm referring to their comfort range.
Consider Carl's vocal on the first half of "Trader" which was, if anything, a little low for his voice in parts, even though he managed fine. Now imagine Al singing it. It's right smack in his natural register. This also makes sense to me in that Al has more of a distinct crossover in his natural voice LP) his higher register than Carl did, so it would be easier for Carl to negotiate the top of his full voice range though there's some overemoted notes on that tune, I grant you.
I can see Al having said that in the interview and either accidentally getting it backwards, having it transcribed backwards, or having remembered the interview backwards.
I've heard a live version of it from '67 and it's obviously Carl on that as well. I hesitate to contradict my esteemed friend Mr.
Doe, but I told myself I wasn't going to read this thread because I get so exasperated at people's inability to recognize what seems obvious to me.
How's that for an arrogant statement I apologize, and I'm not saying anybody has a bad ear, but come on. Listen to the Party! Get familiar with their speaking voices.
Al pronounces things so differently from the Wilsons and Mike. Carl's voice in particular is very distinct and his peculiarities seem as clear as day to me on the "Boogaloo" lead. How could anybody mistake that for Al? Again, apologies. Quote from: adamghost on July 10,PM. Quote from: aeijtzsche on July 10,PM. General vocals question: I remember once reading can't remember where that Mike said he had a "secret falsetto", meaning that he at least thought he could sing falsetto if he wanted to Does anyone know if he ever did that on record?
Quote from: shelter on July 11,AM. Though it's obviously in jest, on the last verse of the Farmer's Daughter portion of "Cassius Love Vs. Sonny Wilson" Mike is singing in a high voice that isn't that bad. That's the only thing I can think of.
Right, how's everyone fixed What about the Mama Says question? How many voices are on there? And Wonderful, which is it - girls or varispeed? Real great question about Mike's falsetto! When did he sing falsetto on the '78 tour? Sonny Wilson" are the only two instances I can think of where Mike went for the falsetto, the latter of course making fun of Brian and not much of a performance. But he did make the point that "anybody can sing like a mouse" so presumably he can. Dennis could sing pretty high when he wanted to; it's shocking how similar to Brian he sounds on Mike Douglas.
He even hit some fairly high notes on POB, when he'd lost a lot of his range. There were a lot of notes there that sounded low, but if you try to sing them, were fairly up there. The issue with Dennis in his upper register was probably not the ability to hit the notes but to control them Quote from: John on July 11,AM. Wonderful: I'd say vari-speeded, the voices sound so strange, especially in the background during the "hey-baba-roo-ba section" I can't imagine these voices not being technically treated, judging just by the sound of them though.
Mama says: Bruce has a distinctive "sweet" voice. I don't hear it, Bruce was notably absent from vocal sessions in this period, wasn't he? Dennis: perhaps, I can't figure out how many voices are singing midrange.
Wind chimes: I think this song is in parts extremely difficult to figure out. To my ears apart from the fifth and sixth lines identified as Brian and Carl more lines are sung by two guys, the line right after that one for example "Now and then Close to a lullaby". I don't have a proper idea who are singing these lines, my guess would be Brian and Carl. Apart from that I think the closeup as it is now is correct. Re: Mike's falsetto; the chorus of Please let me wonder?
If I'm who you're dreaming of" Quote from: pixletwin on July 11,AM. I observed the question mark, hence the answer I gave. Just because a person sings in the upper part of their range doesn't mean its a falsetto.
Falsetto is a totally different species. Quote from: pixletwin on July 11,PM. Quote from: Guy on July 11,PM. Quote from: Guy on July 11,AM. I dunno about the pitch shift allegation. Sure sounds like girls to my ears. Pitch shift even to a minute degree as with Lennon on Strawberry Fields has a distinct sound to it, which I just don't hear on the "One-One-Won-der-ful". My vote is for the Honey girls. All I can think of is somebody slowing Wonderful down but on the session tapes it sure sounds like they are there.
Considering the backing vocals in question are on the same exact track as one of Carl's leads, I think they're the girls. Quote from: Aegir on July 11,PM. I agree. Not sure who's singing what. Wednesday, February 13, Like a lazy flowing river surrounding castles in the sky and the crowd is growing bigger list'nin' for the happy sounds and I got to let them fly. I have resurrected my vinyl albums in an effort to restore my faith in music and just to annoy my sons. My record collection and I will not go quietly.
Tuesday, November 27, I load up my revolver, sharpen up my knife, some redneck messin' with me man, I'm bound to have his life. Stylistically, if every other hip-hop record were destroyed, the entire genre could be reconstructed from this one album. In Illmaticyou find the meaning not just of hip-hop, but of music itself: the struggle of youth to retain its freedom, which is ultimately the struggle of man to retain his own essence.
Illmatic has been included in numerous publications' "best album" lists in disparate genres. Illmatic has been noted as one of the most influential hip hop albums of all time, with pundits describing it as an archetypal East Coast hip hop album. The alembic of soul jazz samples, SPsbroken nose breaks, and raw rap distilled the LP)no chaser ideal of boom bap. So back then you couldn't tell in the sales, but you could tell in the streets".
Following the album's release, hip hop artists increasingly began to draw upon a broad stable of producers for their projects. At the time, the assembly of big-name producers was unprecedented, since most hip hop albums had primarily been the work of one dedicated producer and sometimes an embedded production team. That formula, most successfully mined by the late Notorious B. Hard Knock Lifeis what most N. Yet while hip-hop artists continue to draw upon this template for album production, the practice has earned some criticism.
In an article titled, "How Nas' "Illmatic" Ruined Hip-Hop," Insanul Ahmed of Complex argues that one "unintended consequence" of Illmatic was the overall decline in the cohesion and quality of rap albums: "Next thing you knew, rap albums started having a different producer for every song. And like a film that has a different director for every scene, albums became unfocused affairs. This also meant that producers weren't tied to artists anymore. What's funny about it was he was humble with it.
I would listen to it and the songs were so ill, it made you wanna cry. He was just calm, like, 'How you like it? Everybody was going crazy. You could not walk through the 'hood without hearing Illmatic. It was on your brain. Illmatic is also credited with reviving the Queensbridge rap scene. In an April article, an XXL columnist wrote of the history and impact of the Queensbridge hip hop scene, stating "Since the s, New York City's Queensbridge Housing Projects has been documented perhaps better than any other geographic location.
Starting with super producer Marley Marl's dominant Juice Crew in the '80s all the way through '90s mainstays like Nas, Cormega and Caponethe Bridge has produced the highest per-capita talent of any 'hood.
Knowing these guys out in the neighborhood. At that time, the Queensbridge scene was dead. Dropping that album right there said a lot for me to carry on the legacy of the Queensbridge pioneers. Following Illmatic' s release, Queensbridge returned to prominence after years of obscurity, with the ascendancy of the influential hardcore rap group, Mobb Deep who gained credibility due to their affiliation with Nas and later with the emergence of the trend-setting duo, Capone-n-Noreaga.
AZ, who gained instant exposure and underground credibility due to his appearance on "Life's a Bitch", became a frequent collaborator of Nas, who appeared on his debut album Doe or Die Illmatic was one of the first major recordings to emerge from New York's burgeoning hardcore hip hop scene, at a time when much of East Coast hip hop was still dominated by alternative hip hop acts such as A Tribe Called Quest and De La Soul groups often known for their jazz -inspired production and playful sensibilities.
Adam Heimlich of The New York Press comments on the appeal of alternative hip-hop in New York City's music sceneand points out that, "Inthere appeared likely to be more money and definitely more cultural rewards in working with Arrested Development or Digable Planets.
Heimlich cites Nas' role in the resurgent hardcore movement, writing: "[Nas] came on the scene as hardcore's golden child.
Those three The critical acclaim surrounding the album also helped to shift attention away from the melodious, synth -driven, and funk -induced G-funk subgenre, which dominated the charts for some time after Dr.
Dre 's The Chronic Yet according to writer Mickey Hess, Illmatic was among those East Coast records that helped "create sparse, rough and rugged soundscapes that clearly differed from Dre's multi-layered melodies.
This wasn't a backyard bikini barbeque where the Ohio Players and DJ Quik were mashed up; this was a three-month bid on Rikers Islanda dirty dice game, blunts of brown Brooklyn sparked in the park after dark.
Despite these regional differences, Hampton credits Illmatic with providing a common artistic ground for rappers on the West Coast and East Coast rap scenes. Around this time, she received an advance-copy of Illmatic and immediately dubbed a cassette version for Tupac, who became "an instant convert" of the album.
The next day, she writes, Tupac "arrived in his assigned courtroom blasting Illmatic so loudly that the bailiff yelled at him to turn it off before the judge took his seat on the bench.
During the time of its release, Illmatic brought a renewed focus on lyricism to hip hop—hearkening back to the heyday of Kool G RapBig Daddy Kaneand Rakim. Nas, the poetic sage of the Queensbridge projects, was hailed as the second coming of Rakim—as if the first had reached his expiration date. Illmatic stood on its own terms. The sublime lyricism of the CD, combined with the fact that it was delivered into the crucible of the boiling East-West conflict, quickly solidified [his] reputation as the premier writer of his time.
Despite its initial low sales, the album had a profound impact on the hip hop underground circuit, and marked a major stylistic change in hip hop music by introducing a new standard of lyricism. One was characterized by a fast-paced ragga -flow accompanied with a whimsical, often nonsensical lyrical delivery, and had been popularized by the Brooklyn -based groups Das EFX and The Fu-Schnickens. Many rappers have taken note of Illmatic' s influence LP) their lyricism.
He murdered that. The whole Illmatic album forced you to go ahead and do shit It was inspiration. He's one of the reasons I did go off into storytelling because his pictures were so vivid. When he displayed his rhyme schemes and his word play and his songs, it made me wanna create visual pictures as well.
I didn't get onto to it till late, but when I did, that's probably the only thing I listened to for six months to a year That's when I really tried to sharpen my skills and get better. In addition to his rappingNas achieved significance for his poetic use of language. His spoken-word like delivery and his vivid use of metaphor placed him at the top of the game in terms of overall skills as an MC and as a cultural commentator.
These become tropes in a burgeoning school of American letters that's moving toward an aesthetics of hip-hop poetics. Many of the poetic tropes found in Illmatic have also become terms and phrases within hip-hop lexicon. Even the word "Illmatic" itself [ Over the last 19 years, a million secret handshakes and scratched hooks have been executed to lines from Illmatic.
Many respected mainstream and underground rappers have acknowledged Illmatic ' s influence. These wide range of artists include the battle rappersSunN. Malice, a member of the hip hop duo, claimed: " Illmatic captured the whole New York state of mind for me. It embraced everything I knew New York to be. The album had 10 songs, all of them flawless. Me and my homies got great memories of rolling around listening to that, huslin', smokin', chillin'.
That embodied everything that was right with hip-hop. That CD never came out my deck. Eighteen years later it remains omnipotent. InMarc Mac of the electronic music duo 4heroproduced a cover version of "The World Is Yours" as part of his jazz and hip-hip fusion project, The Visioneers. Raw Poetic which samples "N. Since its release, Illmatic has become a benchmark for upcoming rappers whose albums are widely anticipated by critics.
Hip hop pundits have viewed debut albums as crucial in generating publicity and shaping the legacy of an artist's career. Given the historic anticipation and acclaim surrounding Nas' debut, Illmatic has become a byword for this sort of phenomenon.
As one columnist for the Complex Magazine writes, "Think about the question that pops into your head whenever a new rapper drops his first album: 'Is it the next Illmatic?
D Citydrew comparisons to Illmatic from critics and journalists. For people to even put my album in the light of that, is an accomplishment.
It's crazy to even be mentioned with it but it's scary at the same time That era — I wanna say the age range now would be 30, 30 to 40 — they can recognize this was the album. Illmatic' s the album for the '90s era when I was growing up Illmatic has also been cited as a musical template for other hip hop artists. Common 's critically acclaimed album Be has been said to have been molded after Illmatic. Illmatic has become a totema work that both looked back into hip-hop history and pointed towards its future.
Illmatic has also received notable attention from scholars and authors outside the music industry. Since its release, the album has become the subject of scholarship within academic and literary circles. Inplaywright Shaun Neblett created a tribute play titled Homage 3: Illmaticwhich tells the story of an aspiring artist and explores the themes found in Nas' debut.
The rappers' bars come alive on stage through Homage 3which deliberately shows how intellectually well-versed Nas truly is, and much bigger than that, how much Hip-Hop has to offer, culturally, outside of the radio, clubs and the street. No doubt these were great albums, coming at a moment when hip hop was cutting its teeth on social commentary and refining its ear on dusty breaks, hard snares, and sonic mayhem. But there is something about Illmatic that transcends the categories that have ever existed about hip-hop.
Something complex about its simplicity, something elusive that we felt we wanted to explore. Straight up though, Illmatic is just a dope album, embodying everything that is hip-hop while mastering what matters most: beats and rhymes. Illmatic has also helped to shape the attitudes and perceptions of hip hop fans, who cherish it as a music template that defines the genre's conventions. The evidence they point to when they want to say: this is how good it can be.
For this reason, Caramanica considers Illmatic to be "unusually significant to the intellectual development of the [hip-hop] genre" yet he also remains critical of the divisiveness spawned by its "zealots. Who cares whether it's the greatest rap album of all-time or not? It's an example of how great rap can be, but not necessarily the way it should be. While its success helped Nas' career immeasurably, hip hop aficionados have cited the album as his inextricable "gift and curse".
When he released his third and fourth studio albums, I Am… and Nastradamuswhich underwent editing due to bootlegging of the recording sessions,  many fans and critics feared that his career was deteriorating, as both albums received further criticism for their commercially oriented sound. Blame one of hip-hop's most beautiful moments for the prison that traps Nasir Jones today — blame Illmatic.
