Billie eilish - genius or annoyance?


Recommended Posts

It's kind of like post Malone, how they get really popular real fast, sometimes with pop or a little weird like the bad girl song.  But they are both taking home Grammys so they aren't only chart toppers.

 

I never got post till I saw an interview with him on Jimmy Fallon and that changed my mind. Still don't get the Billie craze (yet I guess)

Downloaded a 94kHz / 24bit version of the album with Bad Guy on it so my wife could test out my new headphones, and some songs on there slap. Quite impressed with the hi-res version

Post Malone is an actual musician? I thought he was some kind delusional wannabe celebrity or something. God, I really have no idea about what's  going on in mainstream music.

So she's on a few playlists here... Ok I guess till she comes out with a catchy pop tune, my pounce is ready.

 

Oh and btw a great song to test out speakers or headphones is Alabama shakes don't Wanna fight :)

I really like her. She's got an excellent voice which I think that Bad Guy doesn't really show off too much. I think a lot of why she might be deemed annoying is that she isn't another in the long line of young talented female people to even consider relying on sexuality in their arsenal of talents.

Come into a thread about Billie Eilish and the last post in said thread is about the Alabama Shakes. *breathes in deeply* This is the Hondo's I love!

 

* I honestly do not get how Eilish became so huge or garnered so much acclaim, but I am glad she did. In a modern world dominated by such mediocrity on the pop charts with such utterly disposable "artists" it's refreshing to see true artists like Malone & Eilish become so huge. It gives me hope for the yewts of Murica--Eilish much more so than Malone.

 

* Alabama Shakes are great. "Hold On" is an instant classic. Brittany Howard's solo album JAIME is also well worth your time if you're an Alabama Shakes fan.

 

* Eilish's music is hit or miss with me, but both she and her brother Finneas seem like truly great young adults, ones who have earned their success. I really wish them both long and healthy careers. I'm gonna preach on Howard Stern here again. He did an epic interview with them and their parents. Spoiler: Eilish finds out in the interview she was conceived through IV. No lie. They go deeeep. Also her yearly interview on Vanity Fair is truly wonderful.

She's talented, and her brothers solo work he's been putting out recently is pretty good too actually. 

 

Fun fact, her mom is a voice actor and has been in stuff like Mass Effect, Bloodlines etc.
