Unpopular opinion: How is Urban Heat considered goth?

I've been trying to get into Urban Heat lately because everyone seems to be crazy about them and they tell me they're great live, but I just hear plain pop-punk/pop-rock. Some tracks remind me of 2010s Editors, but I still wouldn't call them goth. So where's the goth vibe that everyone seems to love about them? Any particular songs you'd recommend?

Opinion on the new kælan Mikla album?

I think it’s good but overall one of their weaker albums. It has an amazing atmosphere though.

In your opinion, what’s the saddest Cure song?

For me that would be «the Drowning Man» and «Short Term Effect».

Unpopular opinion: you don’t have to dress goth to be goth.

All you need to do is to know what being goth really means, and listen to gothic music, it's always posers that say you have to dress/act a certain way to be goth.

Probably unpopular opinion about the SoM…

… but all of their three albums are great. Yes, the "Vision Thing" too. Maybe it's slightly worse than the first two albums, but it doesn't make it a bad album. Actually, my mom loved "Vision Thing" more than "Floodland", as well as one of my friends.

I get why goths dislike "Vision Thing". It's the least goth sounding album. That's 50/50 goth rock and hard rock. However, how many of you like the iconic "Love" by The Cult? It also has much hard rock sound in it. It's still Goth sound. The same with Vision Thing. It doesn't matter what does Eldritch say, their sound is goth. Moreover, it's just good music, whether it's goth or not.

On the other hand, the first album is still the best. And I love the second album as well. SoM is a great band, even though their leader has dic… difficult personality.

Which goth eras/years are the best in your opinion?

This could be based on lived experience or what you perceive to the best era for goth. There's no right or wrong. You could prefer the current decade or anything older. It doesn't have to be your era.

For me:

Music: 1979-late 90s

Subculture/Community: mid 80s-2005

Fashion: 1982-1987

Goth rock subculture books. Good ones vs misinformation ones, in your opinion

I was just visiting a book store the other day and noticed a lot of mediocre books on goth that still spread misinformation even though there good books that people can still buy. What are books you consider good ones and ones that's spread misinformation? This also helps newcomers avoid books and at least provides of collective sense of better stuff out there.

Conflating architecture, gothic, all things dark as goth or goth alone, a poor analysis of the music history and claims of the subculture predating the music along with conflating dark genres as extensions of goth and a strong overemphasis of the fashion and lifestyle are a few traits of misinformation books.

Good goth books imo (some are out of print):

Gothic Rock Black Book

Hex Files

Goth chic

21st Century Goth

Goth: Undead Subculture

Misinformation books imo (some of these are still in stores or in stock online):

Goth bible

What is goth? by Voltaire

Gothic Charm School

What is your opinion on the Poptone album? What iterations do you prefer? Or do you prefer the originals more?

I was watching GothCast's review on Poptone's self-titled, which I had listened to before, and it inspired me to check out the original tracks. My personal opinions are:

• I love the Poptone versions of Ball of Confusion, Mirror People, OK This Is The Pops, etc. more than their original counterparts.

• I love the original Movement of Fear, Slice of Life, and Christian Says more than the Poptone versions.

• I love both versions of Love Me.

Goths of Reddit, What is Your Opinion on The Way South Park Portrays Goths

I'm talking about the group of kids at the school who are supposed to make fun of goths. If you've seen them, do you find them funny, offensive, etc ? Because I know nothing is safe from getting roasted on South Park.
