What does this have to do with the Canterbury tales?
Why wouldn't you just listen to early music?

Well it's obviously a concept album about The Canterbury Tales so if you weren't an autistic friendless pedant you might've picked up on the connection earlier.

You think naming tracks after chapters of the canterbury tales with generic dungeon synth is a 'concept album'?

Yeah pretty much

Not that user but it would be a concept album by definition, yes. Perhaps not a very good one, which would ultimately depend on the listener, but still objectively a concept album all the same.

Boy nitpicking really does sap the fun out of everything, don't it?

Yeah he kinda ruined the thread, shame desu because I really like that album and the Tales

try to gently tell op that his taste in music is bad and that the album he's listening to is low effort music with a practically nonexistent connection through having a painting and title of a famous work of literature to chaucer
somehow I'm the bad guy here and not op for creating a terrible, unhistorical thread
I even provided him an example of what he should be listening to instead, early music which involves an academic reconstruction of what the music might have sounded like based on medieval manuscripts, not on spurious, cheesy runescape music.

unironically thinks music from Chaucer's period is "early music" in any way, shape, or form
tries to play patrician tastemaker
You should unironically kill yourself, and stop samefagging as wel

Explain your first point please, I'm interested.
stop samefagging as well
I'm not? I thought those posts were meant to satirise me, or maybe it's just because I'm a insecure contrarian.

We have recorded music from as far back as Assyria and Sumer so it's a misnomer to call music from the 1300s "early"
Hell, there's """classical""" (shit term btw) music from before this as well

What the fuck is dungeon synth
And why on earth does it necessitate it's own name

JunkTop

I understand that, but I'm going off of the definition of 'early music' which is used by enthusiasts of early music which is usually taken as the medieval age to the renaissance, I don't know where you got your definition from.

Should I take a course on Chaucer? I know the professor and he's terribly challenging, which might be good.

Note that the alternative is a sociology course (required 'social science' credits). I essentially have to take a senior level sociology course for my major (the other options are trash), so I am aiming for a course on mass communication, which requires this course and another I'll be taking anyway.
But, I at least one literature course for my English minor.

I don't get it. The Canterbury Tales is a fun fabliau with ridiculous elements and religious humour. I'm flicking through this album and everything sounds so brooding and serious.

You can get educational editions which have descriptions and glossaries every other page to make you understand. I'd recommend Cambridge Eductional/School editions.

Just read it mate, you probably know enough to get through. Chaucer is familiar Middle English.

It's either one of a few sociology courses, a 'global studies course' which would be fine if there were any being taught to anybody but a few able to travel every term, or a politics course. I could just take a sex and gender sociology course, but that sounds miserable, so instead I'm taking a mass communications course.

Not a big deal.
