    This is me. I'm fine with albums having a visual representation, but I usually don't click with that. The anime for Sturgill's last album is a good example of that. I don't have Paramount+ and don't care enough about this to pay for a subscription/free trial to watch.

    I think, ideally, a visual component should add to the work, provide context, make an album feel more like an “experience” than a project. That said, whatever the reason is, I just don’t care enough about the visuals with a lot of the music I love. Even my favorite artists’ music videos, I just barely engage with, if at all. Maybe I’m weird but whatever. I’m cool with Kacey trying out a visual component but I hope the album’s songs stand strong on their own—and I’m pretty sure it will be amazing, tbh!

    I would be fine w/ visual albums if they didn't generally boil down to being a pointlessly literal visual counterpoint for the lyrics, which is what they are the vast majority of the time (with one notable exception, yes). potentially interesting form, mostly horrible execution.

    anyway I hope the album will be good

    But, like, you can just never watch it. Hell, I WANT to see the one for Dirty Computer and keep failing to get around to it.

    I was just about to bring up Dirty Computer. I watched that one like 5 times and it absolutely added to the experience of the album for me.

    There is really no reason to suspect that the songs wouldn’t stand on their own. She’s always been a songwriter first and foremost.

    The visual component of the album is part of her artistic vision and I don’t think it’s fair to dismiss that when, like mentioned above, you can just not watch it.

    This thread is a great example of why I don’t listen to advance songs.

    - If you don’t care for it, maybe you stick with that opinion and now you’re going into the album with 3 weeks of negative mindset.

    -Maybe you don’t care for it because you can’t appreciate its proper context, and that’s also going to color how you listen for the first time.

    -Or maybe you love it, and now you’re deprived of having the opening track blow you away when you press play.

    I don’t need to have an instant Take that badly.

    Can you help me understand the difference between dismissing the visual component and not watching it? Because this reads like a contradictory statement to me.

    theres nothing wrong with listening to an advance release and liking it, or not liking it, but it just ends up being the same dumb ass debates in every album thread lol

    "its great!!!! AOTY!!!!"
    "its ok"
    "cant imagine not liking this"
    "its just not for me"
    "cant believe there are people who dont like this???????"

    It’s wild how users here will get on the defensive so easily without slightest provocation. Like some of us here are just discussing visual albums as a concept, not even directly related to Kacey’s, and y’all just want to shut that conversation down. People should be able to share their ideas.

    To be fair, I’m not critiquing people for listening. Just preaching my gospel of how much happier I am as a music fan since I stopped. People get themselves so damn unhappy

    Don’t forget the “I must now rank all the songs on this album” moment.

    On one hand, yeah, instant reactions usually don't lend to the most thoughtful discussion, but heck, this is a forum for talking about music...
