Molecular Delusions

Here is a trippy bit of raga folk prog, titled “Molecular Delusions”, by Ramases, a man named Martin Raphael who believed that the Pharaoh told him he was his re-incarnation in a vision. The 1971 album Space Hymns featured all four members of 10cc, and Dorothy Frost (aka Selket).  This track is particularly interesting for its modal group vocals and prominent sitar throughout, not to mention the insane lyrics. Vertigo 1971.

I was recently given a pair of Beats headphones and having spent a few years slating the brand based on a few minutes with a friends pair I decided to give them a proper spin (after all, they’re free).

Here’s what I have to say:

If you’re one of those people who buy Beats for the comfortable fit or the aesthetics, I get it. They’re gorgeous, and it’s like covering your ears in clouds.

If you’re one of those people who buy Beats because of the superior sound quality, you’re being ripped off.

I tried them with a range of music, rap dubstep, classical, prog, grime, folk, choral, rock, house, electronic, indie… Almost everything I could think of, and aside from one or two acceptable performances, they really sucked. One of my favourite things about music is the depth, the ability to get lost in it. Beats turned my favourite 3d audio playgrounds into flat shadows of their true selves. The songs sounded muddy and lacking in clarity, as if the mix was messed up, and they lacked that ~magic~ that had drawn me to them in the first place.

I was listening to a particular favourite of mine and I couldn’t get over how lacking the song seemed. When I switched to my usual headphones I was shocked by just how much the Beats took from the song, not least because the sound isn’t obviously bad. Unlike cheap headphones where you can tell the sound is awful, Beats somehow manage to sound premium, whilst butchering the actual sound and mix. You can’t tell they’re bad unless you have an ear for it, or a pair of good headphones nearby to compare with. Please, find a pair to compare.

Beats are so overpriced too, at over twice the price of my everyday Sennheiser Momentum on-ears, which kick Beats’ butt easily.

I don’t like to pigeonhole us into one genre but I guess a layman would describe our sound as a blend between folk-prog and Homestuck fanfiction
