I mean that I often care more about instrumentation rather than lyrics. or whatever that meant.

I only put a low priority on lyrics if the artist clearly does too.

4/20 reminds me of what a damned dirty hippie IWB is, and it pisses me off.

My take on lyrics: horrible lyrics don't stand out as much when they are in a foreign language. There's some stuff I don't really mind in English or French that would really make me cringe in Portuguese. And by the same token, it takes more effort to perceive great lyrics in a foreign language.

One of my favourite albums of the year (Fjørt - Kontakt) is in German. I'm not sure if I'm disappointed that I've forgotten my high school German because I can't understand it, or if I should be glad because what if the lyrics suck. But probably if I could understand it the end result would be what you say: I wouldn't mind as much as if it were in English.

Does anyone here actually own all 23 Guided By Voices albums? That quantity of albums is insanity to me., and I think they kick ass.

I posted it in the last thread before it was locked, does anyone have any Bluetooth speaker recommendations? Anything you own and would recommend for music? I listen to most things on my laptop lately, the speakers often aren't as loud as I'd like them to be, and the cheap Bluetooth speaker I have doesn't have the sound quality I'd like it to have. As man of you know, I love-a the Grados and Sennheisers, but it's nice to listen to some music on speakers too.

To be quite honest, I feel like a bit of a fraud claiming to be into this or that artist if:

a. Their lyrics clearly do have some substance
b. I can't really understand what they're singing a lot of the time and don't always feel like sitting scholar-like with a page of lyrics open in front of me

I except stuff like Cocteau Twins or very early R.E.M., where, you might as well forget it. It pretty much is in another language.

I don't. Just 11 albums and about 6 singles. But what's holding me back is that I'm acquiring all their albums on vinyl alone which is hard considering their pre Bee Thousand stuff is hard to get.

I would probably enjoy Sigur Ros a lot less if I could understand the lyrics.
