haha, nothing really. just like, you don't seem to have accepted that some ideas are getting recycled yet. and constantly holding it against him is getting pretty tired
Tell Me What I Did Wrong
Andrew please get over it at this stage? Really don't want be a dick about it but come on
but i actually have no place to tell you what to say or feel so i apologise
also TL you are really killing it this time. We have samples for 3 albums that are not yet released thanks to you <3
I'd rather talk more about why ideas/songs are getting recycled rather than the fact that they're getting recycled at all.
Is it because when Chris and Jon were going through the hard drives they felt these re-used tracks meshed with these new albums?
Were these tracks actually apart of the same sessions that both this new album and the album the track was first released with?
Were these tracks originally apart of the sessions these new albums came from and the older albums actually pulled from that?
i think its because omar is trying to rebrand himself with these albums. the older albums are basically rare, out of print items now. the majority of them are nowhere to be found in any official context. especially the later stuff. i feel like omar has lots and lots of songs and some of them are from sessions that definitely belong together, and then the album needs to be filled out some and more songs that fit that vibe are added to it. i feel like the album as a whole represents more than the individual songs for him. perhaps these songs that we hear being re-used were just made around the same time as the other new songs on the album that we didnt previously know about, and as omar says, his albums are like a snapshot of a time in his life
it could also just be having multiple versions of songs. like omar had el bien sitting there alongside un escorpion. he felt both were worth release. so he did it. etc
i don't think there is one singular reason, it depends on each track/album and its context
some of my favourite bands only release new music once every few years so i really couldnt give a shit if 10% of these 24 albums has already been released in a different form. it's still a different beast. context changes everything.
also To Need Something (Células Hermosas) didnt have deantoni drumming on it before :D
