I appreciate that the lyrics are often relevant but I can't help but feel it distracts from the scene being shown. With its use in the new episode and also the trailer, it appears that it will be ever present during this season but I preferred the guitar driven instrumentals that really set the tone for RvB in the past.
It felt so bizarre when it was used in the falling scene last season and detracted from/ruined it a bit for me.
I know it's probably likely that a lot of you enjoy the implementation of it but does anyone else share my feelings on this?
(sorry if this is a duplicate post but couldn't find an original)
I have no problem with it. Its good to have variations. You can find someone who would say the same thing about any genre of music being used. A scene like that without music can, at times, be bland. The fast pace animation can sometimes need a fast paced music to match it. If you are referring to the trailer...well..it was just that...a trailer.

The problem is the vocals. This One Goes To 11 had a great musical score that perfectly matched the pace and the tone of the fight and the action sequence. Music should enhance the scene it's in, but for me the song at the start of this new season completely detracted from it.
The only time where the music has actually felt more detached from the scene rather than harmonizing with it has only been with the season 10 opening. Falling Towards the Sky fell in naturally with the scene it was placed with.
I agree the rap didn't exactly fit too well. Especially as a musical score, the rap just distracts everything.
I generally don't like songs that have words in them unless they are:
a) In another language (especially Latin. love Latin.) b) there is an equal balance of words and instrumentals. ie, the lyrics are just as audible as the instrumentals. c) the lyrics are indistinguishable unless you really concentrate when listening.
music is always a question of taste.no matter which else music they took someone would have been complaning. personally i also dont like it.but i ignore it and am happy about the new season.think that matters more than the stupid music
Agreed, with the whole "show matters more than the music" idea. I personally don't really notice the music, I know its there, and it's playing, but I get more focused on whats actually going on to really pay attention to it.
I don't mind it to be honest. Sometimes I think it sets a bit more of a powerful tone than score without lyrics, something about it feels a bit faster and a bit more on edge. I quite like the way that RvB uses it.
However I did feel it was a bit out of place for the opening episode, it felt like a queue for a big action set piece and then I was let down.
The rap music they used fit in well. Red Vs Blue is a show that is constantly evolving and with evolution there has to be additions to areas to enhance the quality. That is the reason why Red vs Blue has lasted for so long in the first place. They have a good formula and i I doubt using one or two rap songs is going to destroy their empire. The freelancers are a group of A$$ kicking machines, as their music goes you sometimes need to go all out to find the right sound for them. The Blood Gulch crew are a comedic bunch of regular dudes that get the funny and sometimes serious music when the situations are necessary. This formula has success written all over it for me.
