Title: What are you listening to? (general music thread)
Post by: Oburi on April 29, 2008, 04:49:54 PM
I know there are some other music threads where people just list all their favorite heavy metal bands but I want to actually discuss the music. I love music and I'm sure some of you do too. I remember CnC saying a while back he was listening to the new arcade fire album Neon Bible which is amazing. I started listening to the arcade fire wayyy before they exploded into mainstream radio play and it's nice to see them grow in popularity. But I must tell you that if you haven't heard their old cd Funeral you just haven't heard the arcade fire at their best. Before anybody I knew personally was aware of arcade fire I was already listening to funeral and it was one of the greatest cd's ever. I highly reccomend it, at least listen to the last song called in the back seat . So has anyone else been blessed enough to have heard funeral? And what else are you listening too? I love being turned on to  new music.  I just ordered the reissue of another one of my favorite albums of all time the microphone's glow part 2. http://www.krecs.com/Shop/product_info.php?products_id=3350  beautiful album.

I've been meaning to check out the rest of Arcade Fire's stuff, I'll get around to it sometime.   :beast:

At the moment I'm in a bit of a buying random songs from either iTunes or Amazon.com. 
Recent purhcases:
Saul Williams - List of Demands
Gnarls Barkley - Run
Flyleaf - Cassie
Paramore - crushcrushcrush
Black Tide - Shockwave

The last three are a direct result of playing too much Rock Band  :guts:
I also buy random songs from movie soundtracks.

Yeah, I heard Funeral a while back, too. I haven't listened to Neon Bible as much as I possibly should, but I think I enjoyed Funeral a bit more.
Currently I'm listening to a steady cocktail of Les Savy Fav (Let's Stay Friends), MGMT (Oracular Spectacular), Bob Dylan (Blood on the Tracks), Niel Young (Harvest), Gnarls Barkley (The Odd Couple), Andrew Bird (Weather Systems), Françoise Hardy (Tous les garçons), She & Him (Volume 1), Vampire Weekend, and Jens Lekman (Oh, You're So Silent Jens).

Andrew Bird is my litmus test for friends. I just don't know if I can be friends with someone who doesn't like his music.

Blood on the tracks is great. Tangled up in blue is one of the best songs.  Recently I've been listening to blonde on blonde the current Dylan album in my constant cycle of him. Harvest is my fav. Neil Young album too. Since you made your opinion clear on Andrew Bird I'm going to check him out now since I never got into him but I always figured i would someday. And I'm so sick of paramore, flyleaf and gnarls Barkley. Gnarls is a cool guy but I don't see why people think he's so good. I feel like I'm missing something.

O yea I forgot I'm going to see R.E.M and Modest Mouse next month. I can't wait. Modes mouse is my all time favorite band, mostly because of their first couple of albums - This is a Long Drive and Moon and Antarctica

There's no telling how many times I've listened to Blonde on Blonde! I absolutely love it!
I can't get over how great Blood on the Tracks is either.

Harvest is my fav. Neil Young album too.
I've just recently felt that I needed to listen to Young. It just feels like a crime that I haven't before.

Honestly, Andrew Bird is one of my favorite musicians working today and possibly ever. He's brilliant and his live shows are something you shouldn't miss!
Such wonderful beautiful music he makes.
The first album I'd heard of his was The Mysterious Production of Eggs. You can actually listen to the entire album for free here (http://www.righteousbabe.com/artists/andrewbird/tmpoe/index.asp). Just the album opener is enough to give me chills.

Two guys, actually. Their new one isn't nearly as good as their first St. Elsewhere. It was just good pop music unlike anything else that is being made in the mainstream rap/hip hop/r&b genre.

Thanks for the link.  It's very good but I don't think it quite does it for me.  I haven't listened to the whole thing yet, but while I like the lyrics I can't say I dig the melody (which I usually listen to more in a song).

But that aside I really dig this method of previewing an album.  Recently I've been buying music that I'll hear from youtube or other places that play the entire song.  I've been burned from the 20-30 second preview too many times.

Listen to it more, it's a grower. Soon you'll be able to hum or whistle along. :guts:

He's also done a cover version of a Dylan song (which, I generally dislike covers of dylan), Oh, Sister, which is absolutely beautiful. You can find it on the Space (http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendID=7121660).

Well for me, I don't really know all the bands you mentioned except Arcade Fire that I know a little bit since they're from my hometown.

These days I'm really into Pelican, an instrumental band from the U.S. It's an awesome band with long songs sometimes going a little more metallic with lots of melodies and sometimes more acoustic. Here's a link for their myspace page with 4 songs on it I think.

Jeff Buckley's Grace: A great artist with a phenomenal voice, he died tragically just as his career was starting. A little low-key in comparison to my regular fare but It's great when I'm in the right mood.

Tanzwut's Ihr Woltet Spass: Excellent German techno/industrial with strong folk and classical influences, featuring the same members of Corvus Corax.
 
Hedningarna's 1989-2003 compilation: Norse Folk-techo. Described thussly;

I've been rediscovering a band I never heard of when it was still together called Curve (if you can call two people a band.)  Never made it big, but their song Hell Above Water made it into the Iron Man trailer.  The singer has one of the most beautiful voices I've ever heard.

Other than that I've been bumbling around listening to Japanese New Metal stuff I doubt anyone here would be caught dead listening to.

Yeah, that song's great. And it's really the only one I've heard from that album so far. My friends seem to really dig them, I just haven't had the chance to listen to the album completely yet.
Les Savy Fav (http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendID=11646200) has a song that reminds me of this with a little Bloc Party mixed in. Maybe it's through the similarity of titles..... it's called What Would Wolves Do.

I also recommend listening to Patty Lee on that same page. It's pretty fucking awesome.

This band called A Skylit Drive just came out with their debut album and they are very good. If you don't like screamo type rock then forget but they are decen't.  Me and my friends knew about them and even met them before they got big (He stepped on my friends hand during a show and apologized). I'm not big into that type of music but some bands are just really kick ass like Underoath and It Dies Today.  Can't wait for their new albums. The new Weezer album is great too. I havn't gave it a full listen by myself yet but from what I've heard I already love. Sounds more similar too their older stuff. Or like their unreleased b-sides, which they have hours and hours of music and it is much better than their actual albums.

Still can't get used to the page, but the more I listen to it the more I like it.  I'll definitely be checking out his work.

I wish I could recommend something back, but I have trouble keeping up with music.  Most of what I listen to is still from the 80s...  but, lately I've stumbled across Justice and Trentemoller, which have both been rather good.  You can check em out by searching here: http://hypem.com/

Just remembered that you said you don't normally like electronic music- whoops!  Hopefully you'll still dig them anyway.

Post by: Walter on June 06, 2008, 08:30:28 PM
OK, so MAYBE I know a little bit more of electronic music than I let on.  :void: I know of Justice, but this Danger guy kicks their ass. Justice is too "ravey" for me personally, and some of it isnt even listenable, despite having catchy hooks.

To expand the thread, here's Battles' 2007 hit "Atlas." Everyone seems to love these guys, but I can't really get into anything else on the album. It's very repetitive, as you'll soon see. Still, the beats here are pretty undeniably awesome, and I just  figured Id pass on the love, even though they dont get an official Wally endorsement (so valuable!).

I can understand that, the problem that I have with electronic music is that it seems the artists are TOO focused on making catchy hooks, and then forget that the rest of the song needs to be awesome as well.  And then theres the other end of the spectrum that wants to be different, so they ignore hooks and then make shitty music with an "experimental" label slapped on it.  Its very frustrating trying to find a solid overall electronic group.

  Oh there's quite a few out.  This year I stumbled across this group.  Don't know how old it is, but I find it quite interesting their videos are dull, but meh... just listen to a few of their songs.  Midnight Juggernauts:

I am in love with the the Dresden Dolls
i really think they are like the most amazing band of our time.
I highly highly recommend them but they're a very weird style so you'll probably really love them or not care for them. They're classified as punk cabaret but i don't really know if that description fits them.
on their website they have some songs you can download. but wow i really love them and highly recommend them to everyone.

Yeah... Sigur Ros' new album cover is one of the worst of all time. Seriously. I ended up throwing away the album box after a handful of "oh uhhhhh, this is my wife's CD!" incidents with co-workers riding in my car with me.

The album is pretty ho-hum. Though it's totally awesome, the opening track is a real gimmick, since the rest of the album sounds completely different. The other tracks all really blend into one another. I swear there are about 2-3 interlude tracks that lead into other, similar sounding songs, making the whole experience like eating casseroles all week. I give it a 6/10, and Im a huge Sigur Ros fan.

Sigur Ros is indeed good, but I can't comment on many of the other artists due to lack of familiarity.

As for favorite artists...

1.  Autechre!  These dudes are basically my internal image of what "musical genius" is.  I can't imagine their creative process/how they make the music they do.  Examples- (Significant style differences from song to song.  Also, unofficial "videos", most of which are better of ignored, as music speaks for itself.):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C0C7JcEIXzA

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FLK70Ipe-tI

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EbHp24SAkb8

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hWGUnrIiOoI

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MSdP-Nlsq1A

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BFaXiKb4EUk

And just for the hell of it, song gantz graf set to the haruhi dance!... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_PStJ_H5SIQ
...Though the official video is way cooler http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nfwD05XA2YQ

Also, much much more from autechre.  There's so much I'm not posting, because nearly everything they touch is gold.  Fact:  Autechre releases have never really sucked, though they may not always be a "pleasurable" listening experience (like in the case of Confield, or the above gantz graf). They've been pushing the envelope of "experimental" electronic music since '93 and haven't stopped since then..  And I'd definitely say they're "better" than Aphex Twin, on the whole.

2.  Venetian Snares.  Made of pure win.  More manic/crazy than autechre, though:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ksrMdEb-Y-k

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yTBb9Tc7fPw

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MGn8gFXGFtY

Note:  I think everyone should try listening to this music just due to it's sheer novelty.  I don't expect it to be in too many people's tastes, but it is certainly original, and I think it holds about the same artistic merit as much of classical music.  Only it's all weird and modern and does away with much of musical convention.

I went and saw cheap trick, Heart and Journey tonight.  Not that I really care for those bands but my friend had a free ticket so I thought why not. I had a great time too. The bands sucked though, I just can't stand that music. I did meet lots a cool people. I smoked a few joints and drank two cups of beer for free and then made out with some hot 18 year old chick for a half hour.  She took off and didn't come back, which sucked. But overall not a bad night ecspecially because I don't go out much.  But yea about the music...don't go see those guys unless you like that stuff, in which case go.  I've decided to go to more concerts now.

Post by: The Perineum Falcon on September 02, 2008, 11:57:41 PM
I've downloaded a number of albums recently, but these two remain the standouts; i just CANNOT stop listening to them:

(http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b371/jeffolson81/DrDogFate.jpg)
I first heard Dr. Dog sometime last year, with their previous album (also excellent) entitled We All Belong. Fate is more of the same sound, but the songs here seem more infectious and instantly like-able (esp. "The Old Days"). There's a definite nostalgic feel to their music, recalling a fragile atmosphere of mid-to-late '60s rock/pop. Beatles-esque comparisons are apt ones to make, but they remain only an influence as these songs are absolutely all Dr. Dog.
I really fell hard in love with this album the moment the first song began. If you like the Beatles and/or 60s music, you should without a question check this out.

They have 4 songs from Fate and two from their previous on their Myspace (http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=6283831).

(http://blogdoedmilson.files.wordpress.com/2008/06/beirut_the_flying_club_cup_capa.jpg)
This is beautiful. Especially Nantes (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hq2s0AhdFE4).
Reminiscent of Yann Tiersen's music on the Amélie soundtrack. If you at all enjoyed that, this is a no-brainer.
I really can't think of much more to say besides "it's terribly beautiful."

Not for nothing, but for those interested, you can hear most of, if not all of Metallica's Death Magnetic Album. Metallica themselves Posted 6 songs from the album. More so, after the album leaked, which youtube fought for a few days, Metallica allowed the album to be posted claiming "it was bound to happen." Apparently a few stores in Paris released the Album September 2nd, before the release date of September 12th.

IMO its a great album. A lot of the songs are throw backs to their old styles. However, the album has its own distinct feeling all together. Many are calling it the missing link between the "And justice for all" and "Black" albums. Listening to the whole album, I can say it has a lot to offer. IMO the album has its great moments, which highly outnumber its bad moments. Overall, this is damn good album, especially coming off St. Anger.

If this album was released by any other band than Metallica, it would be their smash hit. But this album coming from Metallica has heightened its standard and hype. So, I suggest keep a open mind when you get the chance to listen to it.

I really liked "All Nightmare Long." I got the Album and GH:III downloads of the whole when I bought it at Best Buy. I lot of the songs are pretty damn hard. lol

Any how, I a lot of review really enjoyed the first 6 or 7 tracks. They said some of the songs are quiet long, which many felt wasn't necessary. They say the "instrumental" came off as more of a jam session or a demo without vocals. I think its a great album. Could of been improved a bit but it give me hope that they still can put out metal...fast metal at that. I hope in a few more years they put out another album that takes a step further in the same direction as this one did. I think they will learn a few lessons on what they could of improved from this album by the end of it all. But definitely the album can be enjoyable and definitely worth at least one hearing.

Listening to the solo on Unforgiven III right now... I'll forgive it. =)

Actually, I like that track, I think it's good on its own and helps keep the album balanced and dynamic for what it's worth. Musically it actually reminds me of mid to late 90's Megadeth.

I've heard similar complaints (though none comparing it to Frampton yet; that's all you Wally), and I just don't get 'em. I've listened to the album several times and it grows on me all the more each time. Of course, I was never this familiar with Cookie Mountain, but I do know that that was their best to date. Is this better than Cookie Mountain? Um, I dunno. It's different. And it suits me fine for what it is.

Yes, I think Cookie Mountain was their pinnacle, no pun intended.

And OF COURSE, since I hated the new album, Pitchfork LOVES it. It's nearly always the case. http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/article/record_review/145780-tv-on-the-radio-dear-science

I don't really pay much attention to Pitchfork, and yes, i agree, the site in general is page to page douchebaggery and snobbishness, but here I will agree with them.
It's really unfortunate you can't hear the virtues of this album; this is by no means terrible. "Shout Me Out" and "DLZ" are two of the best songs I've heard this year. The lyrics are wonderful, especially to "DLZ."

Meh, maybe it's a grower. I certainly wouldn't give up on it. Maybe revisit it later after your initial opinions have been forgotten??

Long songs need more dynamics or trance-like inducing riffs (like in stoner/doom) to keep me interested.

Speaking of Death Magnetic and dynamics, how many people have listened to the Guitar Hero 3 rip? It's really the only way to actually hear the album as far as I'm concerned. Passages come to life that just sounded like static mush on the overloud and clippy CD release. It's a shame really.

Also, for those interested in the new AC/DC coming out later this month, check out the Nerd's take on their old releases and how they got fucked up. A good view for anyone really interested in their catalogue.

I've heard it, and the difference is astronomical. It's so much better mixed on the GH version. But i lost my interest in the album pretty fast, so i don't care anymore. I guess they wanted it to be loud-as-fuck to compensate for the lack of good songwritting. Just another bad approach from the band's part to try to stay on the "edge"!!!1!1 Well, the album is selling like hotcakes so they probably think it sounds great.

Interesting video. I can't wait to hear their new album, i was big fan of AC/DC when i was young. Ballbreaker was the first cd i ever bought.

Ah! They removed a song cause it was about crabs? And damn, the Nerd just never stops making videos. Busy fella.

Hey all, Im pretty new to forums, some of you have probably chatted with me on other parts of forum; but to all those who havent, HIYA! As far as music goes, I am into most genres. The music I listen to tends to change from time to time, at the moment Ive been listening to underground hip hop/rap. Its much better than all the commercial rap out there, they all give rap a bad name. A few artists I really like are Wale, Lupe Fiasco (his mixtapes), Gang Starr, Army of the Pharaohs, Canibus, Foreign Exchange, OGC, Heltah Skeltah, Masta Ace, the list goes on and on.

Im also a big fan of indy rock, rock (not so much the heavy stuff), little country, even some old stuff like Mozart. I love music so much, and i always seem to have my ipod on my person 24/7. Some animes that i watch also have great soundtracks, cant name any of the songs names but I can name the animes. Well thats about it for me.

At this very moment i'm listening to Blind Guardian's "Nightfall In Middle Earth" yet again. It's not my favourite album and there's a common agreement that it takes some time to fully appreciate this one in particular. Be that as it may, i think it's perfectly suited to listen to when reading Berserk. Enhances the mood by rougly 90% for me.

Yeah I keep meaning to say that MGMT has the best album of the year in this thread. Because they do. Even if they are a bunch of lame ass psychedelic hippies, their music is just fucking FUN, but it's also tinted with a kind of sadness. They make me think of what Sigur Ros would have developed into if they weren't tragically crippled by their stilted pretention.

Here's a few hits:
Future Reflections (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AuMGqb5_L9E), the song I keep coming back to over and over, especially once it catches its groove around the 2m mark - its the climax of the album.

Of Moons, Birds and Monsters (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xRp4nzqT_xw). The 2.5 minute instrumental segment is another height of the album.

And of course, Kids, their big single (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NWPK52Si3iI[/url).

MGMT is fucking brilliant. And, I would agree, their's is certainly one of the best albums this year. And despite how quickly I got burnt out on it, I'd say Vampire Weekend's is right up there, too.

If you like MGMT, maybe you'd like to check out Cut/Copy, if you haven't already. Similar in some ways; in an electro-poppish way.

It's far, far too different from the kind of stuff I usually listen to. Too full of emotions I don't like. I like Rhapsody Of Fire and Blind Guardian. Music regarding good, evil, dragons, conquest, and treasure.

Finally got around to listening to TVotR's Dear Science.  I'm undecided, nothing really caught my attention except for DLZ, which I did like a lot. I also got Return to Cookie Mountain, but I haven't had a chance to listen to it yet.

The only other new (for me) band I've been listening to is The Sounds.  I have to be in a certain mood to be able to listen to their first album Living in America, as the vocals sometimes grind on me.  But I do like their other album, Dying to Say This to You, Tony the Beat and Painted By Numbers being my favorites on it.

[edit: I like Cookie Mountain a lot]

I'm listening to Chinese Democracy... and I don't know what to think. There's simple sentiments and conclusions it would be all too comfortable to jump to, "it's crap," "it's awesome," because the truth is I find it and what it stands for both figuratively and literally offensive to my sensibilities, and yet genuinely impressive and compelling, sometimes for the same reasons. I honestly can't decide whether it's artistically bankrupt, an ambitious failure, some kind of insane masterpiece, or all of the above. Though, my confliction and the allure of its ambition has me leaning towards the latter; I'm just not sure I like it. =)

I thought I could give a quick review of Chinese Democracy. I can't. There's just too much here to say, and there's no getting around its unique production, decade-long history and overall hugeness. I know I won't do it justice. So here, listen to it on the link Griff listed above. Or just click the YouTube link here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1_E2Ch2Las4 which has embedded links to all the songs. Make up your own minds.

It's the end of an era. Give it a try if only for that reason. Though it may have charted the course to a new and better music of tomorrow, I think this delayed release may instead just sink to the back of our minds as the moment we heard the final, banshee scream of rock n' roll.

A friend just introduced me to Amadou & Mariam, as they came out with a new album (Welcome to Mali) last month. I gave it a listen and really enjoyed it, so I also picked up Wati and Dimanche à Bamako.  I'm not really sure how I would describe their style, but it is sort of a world sound with various and interesting modern hooks in each of the songs, with fantastic vocals sealing the deal. I'd really recommend checking them out.

I'd like to take one more opportunity to praise the Fleet Foxes album again. It's so perfect and I've been listening to it nonstop on my way back and forth to work. It's perfect for this time of the year and even though it's not christmas music, it kinda works.  I can't seem to get the songs out of my head at all. So for what it's worth I highly reccomend the Fleet Foxes debut album.

And also why hasn't anyone brought up he new Decembersits album, The Hazards of Love? I've been a long time fan of this band and every album they put out is poetry to my heart. I haven't listened to it yet but it's top priority and I've heard it may be their best album. Can't...freaking...wait. A new Decembersits album is like a new chapter in my life.

Anyone else looking forward to Eminem's Relapse?  I'll be buying it May 19th. Of course I already heard the whole thing. :void:  I like it, more "Slim Shady" style. Rolling Stone gave it a 4/5.

I'm rather indifferent, I'm interested in listening to it if given the opportunity, but I'm not going to run out and get it. Encore wasn't his best work following up The Eminem Show/8 Mile material, and so far it just seems like more of the same from him after his fake retirement (I guess he's come back to play it safe and try to pick up where he left off, except a little bit worse and little more out of touch). I already feel like he's not coming back as strong as he was at the height of his mania, so it might not be worth it to try the same thing. Crack a Bottle was fun for a club song, Relapse, the song itself, sucked, the same for 3am, and We Made You was totally unremarkable if it wasn't for Eminem doing his same old parody video, and if he's not careful those songs and videos will become strictly self-parodies if the mainstream turns on his antics. Other than that, I imagine the album will be rounded out with more songs about his mother, ex-wife and girlfriends, Proof's death, real and imagined feuds, absurd humor tracks, and one about how he really loves his daughter. So, in a sense, I've already heard it too. That being said, I'm basically more interested in the aftermath as far as Eminem's career and mainstream tastes go. Will he be accepted back and be able to do whatever he wants without question again, or will more people start to laugh at him, instead of with him? We'll find out May 19th.

Rolling Stone gave it a 4/5.

They gave Metallica's St. Anger a 4/5 too if I recall.

Rolling Stone can suck my cock while apologizing for ruining the music industry. "MmfMmmfmfmmfff mf fmmmmmmmm fmoffy!"

As with the above example, they're too busy sucking the cocks of the musical acts they predict will sell, regardless of the quality of their work, or even what they really think of it. It's not their fault really, it's the consumers, if they'd made the ideological choice to follow what they liked rather than what was currently popular, they'd be irrelevant.

Don't knock it till you rock it... Really, I was sceptical at first, since I hated Encore and thought little of The Eminem Show, but this is much better. There are some great tracks.

Quote
and so far it just seems like more of the same from him after his fake retirement

Yeah, you're right, considering the theme of Encore... What a joke that album was...  I would assume, though, that he did plan to retire.
He spent the last few years being all kinds of messed up, which gives this album a fresh vibe.

Other than that, I imagine the album will be rounded out with more songs about his mother, ex-wife and girlfriends, Proof's death, real and imagined feuds, absurd humor tracks, and one about how he really loves his daughter. So, in a sense, I've already heard it too.

There is talk about his mom, his ex-wife isn't mentioned, Proof isn't mentioned (except on line, where he blames his drug addiction on his death, only to say it's just an excuse, if I remember correctly. I thought that would be the focus of the album), very little humor and not much about his daughter.

I'm jammin' to it. :badbone:

Currently compiling my favorite songs, which is an annual ritual I do to sort of capture my current tastes, and how it evolves from year to year (often embarassing in hindsight).

There are a few rules I observe when I compile my list:

1) 1 song per artist per CD - This is the most difficult, but also the most refreshing and rewarding. If you have a large variety of genres this could make for an interesting playlist.

2) CD-only, no MP3-compatible (CD or otherwise) - This rule limits the playlist to just about 15-17 songs per CD (assuming you listen to a bunch of artists). I prefer this so that one can't just get away with putting all of their favorite songs from each artist at once.

3) Once an artist has a song on one CD, the artist cannot appear again on a subsequent CD - Another tough one, but again I do this to promote variety in my music.

These are the basic rules I use. Feel free to use, improve, or simply mock my selection process.  :troll:

Oh, and am currently listening to a lot of Ayaka, lately.

I enjoyed the new greenday album, I don't enjoy the excessive radio play, but thats nothing new.

I've been diving into the deep cuts of Metallica's Load and Reload, you know if you were kinda sort a fan of new age, folk, hard rock cross overs, a lot of these songs are descent. I mean, I don't see a lot of them being played in their set list live, but maybe these would be good more a more laid back environment, maybe a club or a acoustic show. I.E. "Where the wild things are" "Outlaw torn" "Low Mans Lyrics" "Slither" etc.

For all the screamo kids in here (all both of us) the new A Skylit Drive came out and it kicks ass. They actually released this album (their second) like within one year after releasing their debut album. I was shocked, to see a newer band release two albums so close together from the same label before. The cool thing is I've been a fan of these guys since they got their start and if anyone is interested in getting into them, check out their 7 track ep called she watched the sky. It's got their original singer but it's one of my favorite cd's and a must have if you like that type of music, even though its not well known. But the band is getting bigger and the EP was re-released so thats good news.

Right now (as I write this as a matter of fact) I'm listening to German ambient/electronic meister Ulrich Schnauss and his last album Goodbye. The album has been criticized by some fans for having too much focus on percussion and vocal parts compared to his earlier output. Personally I think this is clearly his best work - just as dreamy and beautiful as his other two efforts, but with enough new ideas to keep me interested through the whole thing. His previous albums all had two or three filler tracks, something that's practically nonexistent on Goodbye. If you're looking for comparisons you could probably relate his music to a more electronic-sounding My Bloody Valentine.

Trying out some darkwave (or "electronic goth" as some call it) for the moment. Deine Lakaien surely has made a couple of great albums in this genre, even though purists would call it "darkwave watered out with synthpop". Kasmodiah might be their best work, but each of their albums contains at least some gold.

I've never posted in this thread and my first time browsing here so before do post anything let me say I'm one of those people that listen to EVERYTHING. From country to metal. From crap(rap) to classical. But the bulk of my music collection are anime/video game musics, metal, happy hardcore/trance/gabba/hardcore techno/rave-like stuff etc.etc.

I recently purchased a band's albums I have been meaning to buy for awhile now. The Birthday Massacre's Walking with Strangers album. I really enjoy it cause I never heard anything like them. Currently listening  :serpico:

Is this the genre that's usually played in gothic clubs? I've been to one gothic club in my life and I couldn't quite finger the exact name for the genre of music I heard. It was like a mix of trance, electronica, metal, happy hardcore music. I just labeled it as goth.

I hardly ever go out, but I wouldn't be surprised if this is what's being played in goth clubs these days. Darkwave is basically an evolution of goth rock that started in the late 1970's and was big during the 80's. Some artists started to experiment with synth and industrial and gave goth a more electronic approach.

Goth seems to have become a rather ambiguous term. Everything from pop bands like Evanesence to ultra harsh industrial is labeled "goth" nowdays.

But I've also been listening to a fair amount of Simian Mobile Disco.  Particularly this song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lMoorwCt0bA  I've been guilty of just leaving it on loop for several hours while I work on other things. Most of the other songs from the album, Attack Decay Sustain Release, are also quite good and worth a listen.

Notion is the other single also getting played a ton on my local radio but I think it's starting to die down here in KS. I liked the first song Closer the most but it's been awhile. I burnt out on the album real quick. Looked the band up and I don't remember their album Because of the Times at all or if there were any singles.

Dare I say it but I've been enjoying Ida Maria's Fortress around my Heart. Also Cursive's new album which seems darker than Ugly Organ and maybe more personal but I don't know. Those are the only two albums from em I've heard.

Yeah, what can I say about them? I mean, they certainly sound good, but that probably has nothing to do with the remastering. =)

I mean, they certainly seem to sound clearer, crisper, but it could all just be Suggestion, ya know? But no, they really do sound quite lovely, and the latter albums are definitely a treat to hear. I have been able to pick up more elements than I have in the past (on disc or vinyl), especially with ringo and george (and the horns, by God!).

And what's most interesting is that once all the fuzz is removed, the clarity begins to resemble that of albums produced today, so it's easier to compare and contrast past and present and to see what a band like this--of this caliber--would sound like today.

They're worth a listen. ;)

Not particularly impressed by the new Muse CD. It has a lot of experimental stuff, which I am all for, but this time it was just way out of their vein. I did like the 3-part Exo-Genesis symphony though. Their previous four albums are all much better, Absolution being my favorite.

Have been listening to some splendid stuff from Italy lately. Melodic death metal band Disarmonia Mundi (apparently a side project to Soilwork for those of you who know them) and darkwave project Frozen Autumn. Both are excellent and proof that there’s more to Italy than Ennio Morricone and Eros Ramazzotti.

Muse is one of those bands where sometimes I can't decide if what I like about their music outweighs what annoys me about it.

How is it?


Anyway, new Megadeth album is all on myspace:

http://music.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=music.artistalbums&artistid=2678359&albumid=13511399

This should really be a more prominent feature of this thread since so many artists are doing this now, YOU listen too! Anyway, I just gave it a first full listen while posting this morning, so it's all kind of running together, but the chorus of Bite the Hand is good for Guts. :beast:

Necropolis is pretty typical of what Vader puts out. Some good songs and some filler. There are two cover tracks at the end. One is Venom's Black metal (which has been done to death) and Metallica's Fight fire with fire. The Metallica cover is decent.

Listening to Dim Mak's album Knives of Ice currently.

If anyone watches anime here, the Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood OST came out yesterday.

It is by far one of the best OSTs I've ever heard. Note that I say OSTs period, not just anime OSTs. Akira Senju is an amazing composer, and I have a feeling that everyone will remember these beautifully haunting tracks.

They seem like the same exact same thing for the most part, but i did notice a few changes in songs and in the lyrics, usually little things that would make more sense and wouldn't work as well as it did in the show. Same as the last album, just a few changes that make better sense lyrically or more effects on some songs to help them flow better but if you haven't watch the show religiously like I have you would never notice.

Me though, I'm loving this:

The 2 disc special edition of Downward Spiral comes with a lot of unreleased stuff to further make you miserable, a very smart purchase!

And I also beg all of you to check out Front Line Assembly's Tactical Neural Implant, still my favorite industrial album of all time. Very Sci-Fi themed, lots of Terminator, Robocop, and Alien samples if you got a keen ear. I recommend this album so much if I had some sort of income right now I'd buy it for the first person that PM'd me. When I get a job I'll live up to my offer.

Be sure to check out my favorite track, Bio-Mechanic. It's a wonderful song.

I've been a fan of the industrial scene for several years and FLA was one of the first bands I got into along with Skinny Puppy and industrial rock bands like Ministry, Nine Inch Nails etc. Not sure how controversial it is, but I prefer their newer output over their older albums. Lately I've been listening to Flavor of the Weak, which was the album where they started to experiment with drum'n bass- beats and more electronic sounds. The opening track - "Corruption" - is my all-time favorite song by them. Then I heard Millennium which, unfortunately is clearly their weakest album. Totally failed attempt to make industrial metal. :judo:

BTW: My favorite track on Tactical N.I. is "Gun".

Gun is an amazing track! When I seen them live everyone in the front row was pounding their fist to the opening drum beat, we almost brought the stage down. And speaking of Skinny Puppy, they played here last night and I missed them! Wow, I'm the opposite of you, I LOVE Millenium (Liquid Seperation and Surface Patterns!) and can't stand Flavor of the Weak. I will admit I do pop it in from time to time to hear the first track. Good to see someone else on here who has great taste in music, cheers to you!

Rain Dogs is one of his most consistently awesome albums, imo.

Here's the track I always play for Waits newcomers. It's a crowd-pleaser off "Real Gone" and titled Hoist That Rag: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3xdMEm9i66g

I remember when I first heard his voice I was just cackling because I thought it was ridiculous. Then I paid attention and listened to more songs, and quickly fell in love with the guy. It sounds like an amateur cacophany to some, but it's all very carefully crafted.

(http://img689.imageshack.us/img689/4083/themcrookedvultureso.jpg)

I'm listening to it already and let me tell you this album is rockin. Its like some really classic Zeppelin tunes but with that weird creepy style of QofSA. I'm really happy about this. most of what I listen to is either indie stuff or old stuff (Dylan, The Beatles) but i miss the days when I used to rock out to Zeppelin and the Stones, well here is refreshing reminder thats sounds like that. It's a bit heavier and stranger as I said earlier, but still great.

Yeah, I think I've heard Rain Dogs before, and was intrigued back then, but I never made an effort to discover more of his catalogue. I was listening to NPR the other night, and I've recently become a fan of their program, The World Cafe, and Heartattack & Vine was featured, and I remember being stunned at how visceral it was; it literally sounds like he has a devil inside him, and I had doubts of as to who it could've been, but my first instinct when I had the chance was to see if Waits was the answer, and he was, and I applaud him.

Also, it's funny you mentioned Down by Law, Oburi, as I just the other day watched that film myself.

After listening to all the remastered Beatles albums I've come to the conclusion that Rubber Soul is my favorite.
(http://img684.imageshack.us/img684/2804/rubbersoul.jpg)

Followed closely by Sergeant Pepper...

I've had a little Beatlemania of my own lately, been listening and reading and watching everything in sight. And I been hearing Rubber Soul in my head all freakin day, it' getting annoying, this is becoming my favorite album ever. Haven't listened to a classic album this much since Dylan's Blond on Blond.

with songs like Girl, Michelle, In My Life, I'm Looking Through, Norwegian Wood, Think for Yourself and The Word its just so amazingly good. I believe this around the period when they first met Dylan too, and he famously introduced them to marijuana, though they didn't start using heavy drugs yet. What does this have to do with the album? I don't know but this is the first album to deviate from the typical boy and girl love song and get a little ... different. Anyway, if you haven't heard this yet, whether you like the Beatles or not, give it a shot.

Gunman stood out to me for the particularly energetic main riff, it just made me want to pick up an electric guitar and jam, always a good sign.

I can't really argue, as I said, the only thing that really got my blood pumping during my listen through was Gunman, and it wasn't anything special. But who cares? As with most "supergroups," it couldn't live up to the impact of the creators previous works and the greater expectations of their talent combined, but if you just want to listen to a rock album, it's a good listen, and I haven't listened to it enough to judge further (of course, I don't feel compelled to either =).

I understand your point, but it's a lot different from QotSA and Desert Session (glad you even know what the desert sessions are). Those albums were always way more trippy, as Griffith said its just a good solid rock album. But I agree, I haven't felt compelled to listen it to it more.

Pop isn't weird.

She is really weird though, you see her at the VMA's? It was actually pretty entertaining considering nobody else dresses like that or bleeds all over the stage at a pop music award show anymore.

Don't shoot me. I like weird stuff, it's just how I roll.

I won't judge you man, there is something appealing about her to me. As much as I hate pop music and personally i think she looks like dude, she's got some catchy songs that I find myself singing on some days. I hate myself for it but what can I say, paparazzi gets stuck in my head. Haven't heard the new cd, but I'm sure once it hits the airwaves more I'll catch on.

Now where was I? o yea "I kissed a girl and I liked it..."

Pop isn't weird.

Yea, as Oburi said, I wasn't referring to the music as much I was the lyrics and her style. It's just refreshing, although somewhat extreme, to see something a little different these days.

And Oburi, her new CD puts the last to shame. I really, really like it.  :ubik:

Yeah, a little weird, but she still sounds mediocre. The main problem is that I've heard a lot of her music at clubs without knowing it, I just can't tell her apart from the other 10 musicians they have set on loop for the night.

Yup same here. It wasn't until later when people told me who she was and what songs she did that I began to recognize her.

Most of the tracks don't have very good recording, but what do you expect from a (dead) punk bootleg? =)

........

Also, their previous live album,

(http://www.bilderhoster.net/safeforbilder/952wj6bl.jpg)

the recording is a lot better. Though it seems like half the album is a hate/hate relationship between the band and the crowd, it doesn't disappoint. Very entertaining and relevant even to this day imho.

I've been digging into some of the most dreadful music I listened to on the radio in the 90's lately: Eurodance like 2 Unlimited, Scatman John, E-Type, Mr. President, Captain Jack, Scooter, Ace of Bace etc., just to confirm if it's as horrendous as it was back then. Most of the time it is!

Currently listening to a local Chicago-area band that's getting big called The Felix Culpa - their new cd Sever Your Roots has blown me away. Check it out if you're into hard indie or....*shudder* "post-hardcore". God, I hate the names for genres we've come up with.

Also going through Faunts' discography beyond the song featured in ME's credits. Pretty solid stuff.

You can hear the full album on their website. Ive been listening to it for about 2 weeks.

So far I have to say it's not as good as the previous album. This one's not very diverse, or daring. The surfer-rock vibe of the album cover is shared by the tone of the music throughout the album. Two of the tracks are throwaways (Brian Eno and Lady DaDa's Nightmare). Why are they wasting space on their album with unfunny,  unlistenable pop references?

Yea I want the actual album though. Mostly I listen to stuff on my 30 minute commute to work.

I heard that it wasn't as good as their debut, but I also think that their last album had a few throwaways too. At least two songs towards the end that were just forgettable. But I do hate pop references so that sucks.

The two standout tracks for me, that I always listen to when I put the album on, are It's Working, and Flash Delirium (which has a hilarious and bizarre music video on the site, btw). The others are pretty meh.

As for the throwaway tracks on Oracular Spectacular, the only one I skip is Weekend Wars. The rest of that album is gold, in my opinion. Especially the last few (give The Handshake a chance to get moving, and it's great).

By popular songs, I assume they mean "Kids," but I was never a big fan of that song anyway. Whether or not this album is congruent with the tone of the last album is irrelevant. Plain and simple, this album just isn't very good. Give Brian Eno a whirl and tell me what you think.

Walter's right about the throwaway tracks, Brian Eno is just terrible, but the first 6 tacks and the last one are brilliant. I can't wait to get out of work so I can listen to it  :guts:

The album has some parts that are similar to the earlier albums, but there are a lot of changes to their sound.

Some fans love it and some hate it. I personally like all 5 of their albums.

The producers for the new album have worked with Tool and Nine Inch Nails, this should give you an idea of what to expect.

You can stream the album from: http://www.myspace.com/coheedandcambria

I haven't listened to all of the album on the stream (I bought the album).

Played Killer Instinct on the SNES at my friend's place earlier. I really liked Glacius' music so I looked it up on YouTube and found this remix. I really like it for some reason. I don't usually listen to stuff like this

Killer Instinct did come out on the SNES. You're thinking of Killer Instinct 2 on the n64 (which was just awful).

Right now I'm listening to Faith No More (at this very exact moment: Ricochet. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Ob6O0GEMK0) and seriously thinking about buying a ticket to ilosaarirock rock festival (2 days in july) because of nothing else but this. It sucks that that festival only sell 2 day tickets, absolutely no other band in their list interests me enough to warrant going to a rock festival...

Other stuff I listen nowadays is... well... Desert Planet. And if you have spotify, here is a public playlist http://open.spotify.com/user/tommituura/playlist/0FJAyCErqnpKPLYGx5yEsq that I'm using to entertain & occasionally torture myself and my fellow co-workers (don't ask) these days. That list is *really* meant to be played on random. Contents of that list is also subject to change at my whims whenever I feel like it.

EDIT: Hell yeah, I went there for FNM and was not disappointed!

Hehe, okay, than you got problems with mastodon, definitely. You wouldn't find anything else than screaming on the other records ;).  But maybe you could try it with
Coheed and Cambria - In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3, ASG - Win us over or The Sword - Age of Winters. These three albums have those sludge elements or those proggy elements without screaming :) But a badass riffing.

New Eyes set to Kill album that just came out. Its ok, but it hasn't really grown on me yet. It sucks because Eyes set To Kill was pretty decent post hardcore band and their first album was amazingly good. But then they lost their lead female singer and one of the other girls took over. She's ok, but nothing like the original singer. Its like I really want to keep listening to them but I think they just keep getting worse and worse, which is a shame.

After going through some of my old boxes of albums I found this old gem.

IMHO this is without a doubt one of the best live albums ever. It's actually remarkable. I'm not even big on Led Zeppelin's studio albums, and this is the reason why. They are such an amazing live band. I'm so happy I found this  :guts: And it's from 1972, when they were in their prime.




I'm sure some of you are aware of the new Arcade Fire album coming out on August 3rd. Its called the Suburbs and I can't wait. It's been 3 years since they released Neon Bible and this album is over an hour in length (yes!) here's the title track http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XAitZuh4ueg&feature=related

I've never been a big fan personally. The guy's voice grates on me, and I think it's overly sentimental. But, I understand why it's popular.

I am enjoying the new Arcade Fire album. Buuuut I think I still like Neon Bible better than this one. Suburbs is clearly a grower, so that feeling may change in time. I've liked it more and more each listen. Favorite track so far is 9.

I feel the same way. It does get better the more you listen to it, but I still don't think it beats Neon Bible (and of course Funeral is in a league of it's own). But it's still a great listen. And yes, track 9, Suburban War, is my favorite as well, mainly because of the last few minutes of the song. The first three or four tracks are also really catchy too.

Great album. Plus I can kinda relate to the lyrical content  :serpico:

I bought Avenged Sevenfold's new album, Nightmare, on Saturday and I really like it, even though they switch to a new drummer half way through. Their old drummer, The Rev, died of an overdose last December. Unfortunately, that changes the tone of the songs that The Rev didn't perform, but the album is still very well done.

As some of you may know, Underoath is one of my favorite bands, and on November 9th the new album comes out called Disambiguation. Unfortunately, the only original member remaining (drummer/ singer) has left and they actually got Norma Jeans drummer to replace him, which makes me nervous because I'm not a big fan of the drumming in Norma Jean, that was always my biggest complaint about them. Regardless I still can't wait, Underoath never lets me down.

ANd that's not the only album in November that looks promising,

The new MCR album is also out. Really interested in hearing this.

Actually it's kind of funny about these two bands, they both hit the scene around the same time and both are releasing their fourth album.

THis is Chiodos on their third album and the first with the new singer (who had some big shoes to fill because the old one, Craig Owens, had such an amazing voice and while I do miss him dearly, the new guy is totally fine and I can see him staying with Chiodos for a long while). The first Chiodos album,  All’s Well That Ends Well, was one of those cd's that, in my youth, rarely left the car stereo and was most likely one the loudest ones my friends and I would blast during the summer. So i'm kinda loving the nostalgia right now and I'm sure my opinion is unfairly biased, but it seems really solid, and it's getting good reviews (almost too good actually, it's a little suspicious). I would describe it as more fun and edgy 30 Seconds to Mars, with breakdowns and lyrics about phantom of the opera and zombie apocalypse type shit.

Ahh, good times for this type music with my favorite bands (my top 3 actually) all releasing albums so close together.

RTPN - Crossfire.
Its industrial metal. I first heard it while watching the best goddamn Sendo AMV anyone will ever make.

Album leak from two of the metal-bigwigs lately.

Atheist - Jupiter. I was never a big fan of the technical school of death metal, but this wasn't too bad, especially considering the negative reception some of their fans have given it. Just as good as their classic albums from the early 90s methinks.

Agalloch - Marrow of the Spirit. This was more to my liking. It's probably heavier and darker than their previous works (only heard Mantle before), but it's almost ethereal when they switch over to the mellow acoustic/drone-sections and the spooky forest sounds. Feels almost like it's been recorded in Alaska.

I can't stand older Atheist to be honest, one of those over-rated bands along with Cynic. I love older Agalloch though, this new album is decent.

Jason Oliver from Infester has got some of the most incomprehensible vocals I've ever heard in music. Just sick! :beast:

Deathspell Omega - Paracletus. Another release making metalheads go nuts which I don't really see what's the big fuzz about. Just standard black metal with some nice atmosphere imo.

Unleashed - As Yggdrasil Trembles. Good Swedish death, but the lyrics are so hilariously bad even I am embarrassed (don't normally care about lyrics...).
Title: Re: What are you listening to? (general music thread)
Post by: IncantatioN on November 09, 2010, 09:11:30 PM
That Infester album is an old school DM classic, under-rated I might add. Yeah, the new Deathspell Omega isn't all that, I prefer everything (full lengths and splits) they released between 2001 and 2005. Unleashed should honestly stop putting out albums ... they've done nothing for me since their first EP and first 2 albums.

I'm guessing you love Carnage's Dark Recollections or Incantation' Onward To Golgotha/ Mortal Throne Nazarene? What do you think of Ulcerate? They're coming out with a new one, I just pre-ordered it.

Honestly, I'm not very schooled when it comes to the old-school. With the exception of Entombed's early works and a few others I haven't got too many favorites there. I have heard Dark Recollections though (got hooked on Dan Seagrave's classic cover artwork).

Most of my DM favorites are in the "melodic death" subgenre - Edge of Sanity, Mors Principium Est, The Crown, Disarmonia Mundi, Dark Age, etc.

Post by: IncantatioN on November 10, 2010, 12:03:44 AM
My brain just went the other way when you said Melodic DM! I can't get into Melodic DM at all, but Edge of Sanity is easily one of the most under-rated bands for the records it put out in the early 90's. Swano's mastering skills is legendary haha! I could recommend albums if you're looking at the various styles like old school/ Swedish/ Polish/ Brazilian/ Floridian/ DM styles, then the Brutal DM genre, Grindcore/ Goregrind, Doom (Funeral, Drone, Atmospheric) and select BM hehe. You could point me to your top picks of Melodic DM  :slan:

My brain just went the other way when you said Melodic DM!

I gave you lifelong traumas now eh? :???: I should add that I'm not really a metalhead. My biggest fetish is actually electronic and industrial music. I guess some of the reason I prefer melodic and progressive DM is because it presents a dualism between something astonishingly brutal and hauntingly beautiful, something I previously refused to believe the genre could do. After I got introduced to the music through bands like Cannibal Corpse I was under the delusion (along with lots of other newbs) that death metal was nothing more than a pissing-contest between people wanting to make the most inhumane growls, the fastest drumming, the most brutal chugga chugga riffs, the most extreme lyrics and most disgusting album artwork. It took bands like Opeth to make me realize there was much more to it.

As for my DM picks, it seems like most of my favorites hail from Sweden and Finland. Edge of Sanity's Crimson (and Crimson II) of course. The Crown - Deathrace King, Crowned in Terror and Possessed 13 are all excellent. At the Gates introduced me to the genre with Slaughter of the Soul. There's also In Flames sideproject Dimension Zero's He Who Shall Not Bleed.

Finland's got Mors Principium Est who made The Unborn and Liberation = Termination. Insomnium has Since The Day It All Came Down + Across the Dark and there's Shade Empire's Sinthetic (although this one's probably considered symphonic black metal).

Elsewhere you've got Disarmonia Mundi - Fragments of D-Generation, The Arcane Order - Machinery of Oblivion Dark Age's self-titled album and Sybreed who're mixing MDM with industrial. I like their last two albums.

I'm also a huge fan of folk metal which definitely share some bonds with DM, but I guess I shouldn't go into that here...

Nekofrog is apparently coming out with an album. I can hardly wait to get it. Here's the song I'm currently listening to by this awesome artist. His style is acoustic/metal guitar. I also really like his drumming. Only thing I'm not particularly fond of is when he tries to sing, which is rare and isn't particularly good.(he doesn't sing at all in this song)

Tonight I'm going to see Eyes Set to Kill and D.R.U.G.S (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lOChQZkBZHM).

I know, I'm excited too.

EDIT- Just got home from the show. No joke, one of the best shows I've ever seen. The energy was amazing and to top it off i got to meet practically every member of all the bands that night. I even got pictures with the two sisters of Eyes set to Kill (which I'll upload later, some of the beautiful women in the world). And i managed to get a free poster which the whole band signed. Best.night.Ever!

Sorry for my excitement, but of course there is a downside. My friends and I got pretty messed up in the mosh pit, like we were literally limping out the door. My nose is still red from getting elbowed and my friend messed up is knee, hopefully short term.

Ahh, the first great album of 2011, and my god is it great. As a huge Decemberists fan I honestly was unsure how the group could possibly outdo their last album, the amazing and epic concept album The Hazards of Love, but of course the new album is great. It is however, much different and while I do miss the epicness and long, story like quality about old English folklore of the previous albums, this album is a fresh change of pace for the Decemberists. It's much more American, but the good kind, the modern rock sound REM and the old twangy folk of The Byrds. And of course the lyrics are still amazing and it's catchy as ever.

Most Funeral Doom bands do nothing for me. If i want massive slow walls of sound, i prefer drone.

It can't sound like everything they have ever done while also sounding like "throwback soft rock", pick one. Fact is, it sounds like nothing they have ever done before, for better or worse. I don't how familiar you are with the genre but you're out of your element
(http://img268.imageshack.us/img268/7558/elemento.jpg)

Certainly not REM clones (but i can guess where you read that  :schierke:). Peter Buck himself plays on the record btw, so if you're reminded of REM in that sense, well, you'd be right too. Unless he's cloning himself :troll:

MY top 5 most played songs in my iTunes are 4 tracks from Nujabes and 1 from fat jon. (how you feel)

I remember I teared up the day I heard he died. :sad: I can confidently say im the biggest fan of Nujabes in California.
It was really mean of them to keep his death a secret for as long as they did. I still have him added on MySpace (where I first discovered him, which then led me to samurai champloo which got me into anime = Berserk! :guts: ) , but Spam bots spam the crap out of his myspace comment section, it's so sad :(

here's a pretty good remix of Counting Stars:

Am I the only one here who digs hip-hop (non-mainstream)?

here's some easy listening jazzy hip-hop with some other genres too:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XxLECfLZWWs

Nah you aren't the only one  :guts: if you like listening to HipHop with jazzy beats you should try Guru Jazzmatazz Volume 1 and 2. I would call it the HipHop album for jazzlovers and the Jazz album for the Hiphop lovers.

Personally I'm mostly listening to some old school HipHop, some techno and the rest is well random, i don't buy songs (those i buy is are the ones i like the most) that much but use legal and free music programs like Spotify.

Here is a taste of Jazzmatazz.

Guru - Lifesaver (feat Lucien) [JazzMatazz Vol.2 The New Reality] 1995

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gQvzqOvoF-o

This is one doesn't have a jazz beat but still is a nice one, the beat is made by J Dilla (an awesome beatmaker).

The Pharacyde - Runnin, Album: Labcabincalifornia

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pwHuEDCM7xs

And of course Jurassic 5 - Concrete Schoolyard, Album: Jurassic Five.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KeN9c2GYJkk&ob=av2el

You haven't listened to HipHop if you haven't listened to A Tribe Called Quest - Can I Kick It.

I already have those artist in my iTunes, believe me, i started out with Old school hip-hop and over the years accumulated many artist into my itunes, but I cant list them all here.

 Slick Rick, Souls of Mischief, Atmosphere, People Under the Stairs, Cunninlynguists, Immortal Technique, snow goons, Jay electronica , 2pac etc etc.. the list goes on and on, so im just trying to find new faces to add to my collection,

like this dude!:

Always nice to play old-school hip-hop in the car, but hip-hop isn't dead, there are new legends to discover.

PS: i like techno too :guts:

Man, so much good music coming out in early 2011, including new albums from Fleet Foxes, Bright Eyes, and Explosions in the Sky, with possible new albums from Queens of the Stone Age and Modest Mouse later in the year. It's going to be a good year for music.  :guts:

Loving the new Skylit Drive album, one of the few bands that I literally followed from their earliest days, almost by accident and just stuck with them. I'm also seeing these guys at the end of the month with Underoath and Thursday, who are playing their album Full Collapse from start to finish. Can't fucking wait, just thinking about it gets me adrenalin pumping.

Just came across this today. Highly recommended for fans of FFVII and/or hip-hop. I was skeptical at first (especially because it's been done before), but there are definitely some great tracks. Stand-outs include AVALANCHE, Mako Reactor, and definitely Cry of the Planet. You can preview all the tracks before buying.

The sequel to Dance Gavin Dance's debut album. Even I'm surprised how much I like this. The songs are technically insane. Drums guitar, bass, and especially the vocals which could fit perfectly into any R&B hit today. It's the most experimental thing these guys have done for sure, and I'm loving every bit of it.

I just found that one of my favorite bands ever, released an album last October, and I'm just NOW hearing about it. I'm very disappointed in myself (except all of their other albums were like 7 years apart, not 2)  Anyhow, its poppy Canadian electronic based music.. but so far, I'm digging it.

If you like your metal fast with no groove (breakdowns and shitty "core" styles included), some melody and lots of fucking reverb, then this is it. It's easily the best death/thrash album of the last 20 years. Reminds me of old Sepultura/Slayer/Kreator/Death/Possessed.

I'm going to have to check out some of the stuff you guys have mentioned. I'm always listening to some kind of new music, priority-wise I always make time for it.

(http://www.mindovermetal.org/blog/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/Envy-Recitation-300x300.jpg)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kJRKqANcDBI

Envy - "Recitation"

I've only been listening to these guys consistently for about the past year or so, but they have yet to put out a bad record. They've become more of a post-rock band since 2003, but their older stuff has more of a straight-up screamo/punk influence. They're from Japan, so they don't tour out here too often but I saw them twice in a row when they did a US tour to support their new LP. Very loud and thick-sounding live, but really pretty melodic parts.

Nice D-scape. I saw Rotten sound about 2 years ago in a very small show. It was basically a small handful of us and rotten sound there (less then 10 people). Their music live was so coordinated and structured I couldn't believe it. How they could get all the timings right in such demanding sounds blew me away. Was pretty cool to talk to them too. They are so broke but they keep touring and love it.

Envy - "Recitation"

Distance - Headstrung

It's interesting to hear the different kinds of music people listen to. Thanks. I have long stopped listening to music but I do like Yuki Kajiura's (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yuki_Kajiura) (a music composer) work, minus the j-pop.

Exit probably, but Cursed was quite good too so I dunno... :puck:

That was some show Turkitage. It sounds like they handled it pretty well though. I was at a live-event like that once and you could tell the band playing was disappointed because of the lack of audience, probably thinking something like "Where the fuck are the fans?". A rather uncomfortable and embarrassing experience, and one of the reasons why I tend to avoid concerts.

Exit's fantastic ... my order of preference is prolly Exit, Drain, Murderworks, Cursed and Cycles. I'll be honest, I haven't had the chance to listen to Under Pressure yet. I rank Drain high because apart from being fun, it's the first album I owned off the band ^_^.

Speaking of Amon Amarth Gaahl, their debut is the only album I can listen to X'D ... everything else is mundane.

Maryland Death Fest is sick, so many good crust and death metal bands every year. A bit too pricey for me at the moment though, I'm already going to 2 other fests in the next couple of months.

Few weeks ago I saw Of Mice And Men (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ouLLdlRJjo) Sleeping With Sirens and I Set My Friends On Fire. It was for sure the most intense show I've been. Ended up on stage with band after crowed surfing only to jump right back in.  :guts: Needless to say, I was very much hurting the next day. :sad:

Then last night I saw Circa Survive (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MAp3uAk-poo) and Taking Back Sunday, who had their original lineup from the Tell All Your Friends days. One of the best shows I've seen, and I'm not even that big on TBS.

Currently listening to the new Silverstein album. (http://img200.imageshack.us/img200/6667/folder49.jpg)

I've been listening to a lot of alternative country, or goth-country as some would call it. Dark southern americana. Most of which was introduced to me by the great Dax Riggs (from Acid Bath fame) and all his pojects. You guys should check him out. His lyrics are amazing too. Not compromising on that is one of the main reasons he hasn't gone mainstream.

Love this videoclip:

Nadja's good fun, I love em. They're just hard to keep up with because there's a release or two every year! Jesu's new one is a hit and a miss with me, some tracks remind me of Conqueror while others are decent. I'll buy it on vinyl when it comes out. My favorite Jesu albums are Heartache, Jesu, Silver, Conqueror and Infinity.

I've listened to this one and i don't like it. My favorites are Jesu and Silver. Heartache is good too, and so is Sun Down / Sun Rise. Everything after that just sounds rehashed and uninspired.

Yeah you're right, it definitely doesn't live up to the past releases. Oh well, it ain't as bad as the new Morbid Angel though. The previews for that along with the song by song review I read online from the guitarist of Mithras (who's a long time Morbid Angel fan) has left my chances of pre-ordering the album deflated *sigh*. The new Putridity though packs a punch!

So far I've only heard the title track (it's pretty amazing), but I want to listen to the album from start to finish as a whole.

Marc Maron's podcast is great, though it has hills and valleys depending on how open his interviewees are. I like how he can seamlessly go from comedy to seriously pointed questions. To be honest though, after hitting the highlights, Robin Williams, Mencia, Louis CK, Apatow, Gallagher, it's tough to slog through some of the other no-name stand up comedians who are really just plugging their new set. It's best when he seeks someone out and they have a personal talk with some laughs and history about their career paths.

I agree. Some of the episodes are ho hum, but still have a few laughs. Others, however, are hilarious and very moving sometimes. The interview with Mike DeStefano had me wiping away tears (of sadness) by the end of it. I was horrified to learn he passed away from a heart attack of all things not long after I listened to it. The guy had a very tough life.

The Carlos Mencia interviews were exactly what I expected. The poor guy is completely out of his mind. He doesn't even seem to realize what he's doing or that it's wrong. And Dane Cook really came off like a jackass, which surprised me. While his comedy may not be the best anymore (I enjoyed his first album), I figured he was a pretty cool guy, not some arrogant douchebag.

Really? Haha, I thought him being a douchebag was part of his schtick. Most comedians hate him because he doesn't really do jokes in the traditional sense. He does exaggerated voices and likes to enunciate certain words for laughs, but doesn't actually deliver any punchlines. When you laugh, you're usually laughing at his voice, not the joke itself. I find some of his stuff funny, yes generally the earlier material. But overall he can be grating after a few minutes. A full set? Forget about it...

I really recommend the Judd Apatow one, because it's really three interviews in one. Apatow has tapes he recorded when he was a teenager in the '80s and scored full interviews with Jerry Seinfeld and Jay Leno. It's just mesmerizing.

Hey, we're talkin' podcasts! In addition to WTF I also enjoy the BS Report, The Adam Carolla Show, and FitzDog Radio. They frequently guest each others shows as well, I remember Maron and Fitzsimmons having a fantastically awkward show that almost resulted in a fistfight when Fitzsimmons told Maron he didn't like him personally and thought he was a bad person, but would rather hang out and talk with someone like him than a "nice person" because he was so honest, intelligent, and interesting. Maron, understandably, didn't take it as a compliment. But, of course neither backed down and they eventually talked it out intelligently and were more fascinating for it. You're hard pressed to find conversation like that on radio or television anymore, which was Fitzsimmons' point to a degree.

The Apatow one was great. I recently went back and listened to every one Maron has produced. I really liked the Bob Rock one, too. Some of the funniest stuff happens before the interviews even begin. Listening to his neurotic recollections of the previous few days has me cracking up most of the time. I still chuckle when I think of him stealing that vegetable from Whole Foods (mentioned in Episode 1).

Is Master of Puppets exclusion because it's not purely thrash enough, or has MoP become so overrated (BEST ALBUM EVAR!!!) it's now underrated (not even among the best metal albums of 1986, harrumph)? If we're being contrarians I say we dump the big four altogether and throw Reign in Blood out as well, but if not I want to give honorable mention to 1986's obviously well-known, though less heralded, Peace Sells, which is being remastered (again) for it's 25th anniversary.

BTW, in "albums to look forward to/dread" news, Metallica has apparently made a record with Lou freakin' Reed of The Velvet Underground! Of course, it's already being compared to the best works of both artists, which only guarantees it will be catastrophically disappointing to both fans bases and otherwise completely inaccessible to a general audience. I'm looking forward to it. =)

It's because it's not thrash, it doesn't have that feel or attitude. Sure there's 3 thrashy songs in the album (probably the last great Hetfield moments), but historically it was such a huge deal on the metal movement, that we can extrapolate the impact of that album as the death of thrash. From then on, bands tried to mimic the same songwriting approach of that album, the slower tempo (which was a nod to Black Sabbath, but done wrong - and eventually spawned the dreaded groove thrash movement), the mellow songs and the long acoustic sections. Also i think musically the album is very uneven. You can tell they were out of Mustaine riffs :troll: (it's impossible not to notice the best part of Lepper Messiah - starting at 3:15 - is so blatantly Mustaine), so what we have left is half-assed ideas, some good ripped off riffs (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ffghdsbr6jU) and the need to resort to Burton's creativity (which was great, specially on Orion, but not metal at all). My view on that album has not changed since the first time i listened to it when i was young. I can remember half the songs, the rest are remarkably uninteresting.
I agree with you on Peace Sells, even though i dislike Megadeth in general.
As for Metallica nowadays, i loved seeing them live in 99 and 04. Saw them a couple more times later but was absolutely sick of the clean non-drunk "yeho" Hetfield voice. I'm done with them. I think i saw them more times then they deserved. I didn't make the same mistake with other old bands though.

I don't think it belongs there either honestly. My favorite from the classic 1980s scene is the overlooked Spectrum of Death by Morbid Saint. I listen to it all the time.

My view on that album has not changed since the first time i listened to it when i was young. I can remember half the songs, the rest are remarkably uninteresting.

I get what you mean, but I wouldn't say it was "done wrong," and if it was the end of thrash and beginning of some bad influences that's everyone's fault. Musically we agree on the facts but disagree with our conclusions. Compared to say Ride The Lightning for example, I would agree that song for song Ride has the better individual or standout tracks, but I think Master is a better album precisely because the music, themes, and production are so unified and consistent throughout, while individually the songs are more intricate though less memorable, which can be a hurdle. It's a true album end to end though, and so to me it's musically very even in serving that master (see what I did there). Also, to your point about Mustaine and Burton, it's interesting to note that Burton only had three writing credits on Master (MoP, Orion, Damage Inc.), while he had six on the aforementioned Ride (only the best ones too: Fire, Ride, Bells, Fade, Creep, and Ktulu). And yes, I knew all that off the top of my head. :farnese:

I agree with you on Peace Sells, even though i dislike Megadeth in general.

Dave's voice, lyrics, or his eventually recycled riffs? I mean, if it's Megadeth it has to be about Dave somehow.

As for Metallica nowadays, i loved seeing them live in 99 and 04. Saw them a couple more times later but was absolutely sick of the clean non-drunk "yeho" Hetfield voice. I'm done with them. I think i saw them more times then they deserved. I didn't make the same mistake with other old bands though.

Yeah, I almost caught the Big Four show in Indio, but by the time I heard about it there was only the shit seats left and I figured it probably wasn't worth it anyway (sad). I've also seen them pre and post Hetfield rehab, but I was so drunk the last time that I made up for him. It was definitely more... authentic previously, and more professional the last time for better or worse.

I don't really take those credits seriously. Do you really believe Lars wrote songs? I mean, sure he had input (and the biggest ego in the band), but i think he just pulled the strings like "play that in this way" sort of thing. He's more of a show-off marketing kind of guy first and foremost. In the end MoP is a symbolically concept album about Lars and his influence on heavy music from then on:D
As time passes i tend to regard their first two albums as their best. I just love the overall feeling and mood of those productions.
Also, the fact that Dave's riffs are so distinguishable makes it easy to spot the ripped off parts. But i was never bothered by that, look at Led Zeppelin, they ripped off tons and tons of riffs. Usually the pioneers are forgotten for the ones that left the biggest impression/had luck/best management.

Interesting Metallica talk, didn't know Griffith was a fan ^_^. I personally rank Ride The Lightning higher than any record they put out. The production on Master is phenomenal in terms of chuggy heaviness, then there's also the very heavy sounding Justice album too. Those first 4 album off em are pretty different from each other.

EDIT: BTW, I recorded slower versions of Master and Ride using my vinyl player and well, it sounds HEAVIER hahaha! Muchos. Got me thinking what Bolt Thrower would sound like with James on vocals.

Haha, I've always suspected the ever-present Hetfield/Ulrich was something of an arrangement, but I give him the benefit of the doubt. Probably not the musical mover he'd like you to believe, but also not as inconsequential as some like to think. As for the other credits, while the fix was in for those two, they obviously cared whose name got put down otherwise, so I don't think those credits are arbitrary where Burton and Hammet are concerned, but I'd agree their influence was probably understated considering how bands really work despite the draconian way Metallica operated (especially Cliff since I'm a total Burton fanboy! :iva:).

As time passes i tend to regard their first two albums as their best. I just love the overall feeling and mood of those productions.

Well, full disclosure, MoP was what got me into the band and is one of my favorite albums, though I've had my fill of it at times where your critiques ring truer, but after some time away I'll go back for a listen and remember what all the fuss was about in the first place.

Also, the fact that Dave's riffs are so distinguishable makes it easy to spot the ripped off parts. But i was never bothered by that, look at Led Zeppelin, they ripped off tons and tons of riffs. Usually the pioneers are forgotten for the ones that left the biggest impression/had luck/best management.

Yeah, doesn't bother me either, and by the same token there's a tendency to try and take credit away from those that achieve with something and give it to those that didn't, which isn't fair either. Dave obviously proved himself anyway (one of the craziest stories in music history when you think about it).

His voice, definitely.

The irony of that is while almost every other metal singer from his era is a shell of themselves, he sounds as good as ever! :carcus:

I wish that were true, and bringing this back around, have you ever listened to Metal Machine Music (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9I5OtlKjzJo) by Lou Reed? Maybe those two are the great works that Metallica's collaboration with him will combine.

Please tell me you guys have seen the documentary leading up to that album in all of its pathetically hysterical glory. My favorite parts are the random clips of Kirk Hammett surfing and Hetfield going on a 2 week hunting trip to find himself.

Can we all agree that Some Kind of Monster was probably the most embarrassingly revealing rock documentary of all time, not just by Metallica? Either way, it's a fantastic companion to A Year and a Half in the Life; two movies about the same band that couldn't be more different, literally coinciding with their career apex and nadir respectively.

Machetazo are good fun. I was off metal for a bit and got back with a slew of new albums. Decapitated's new one is just ... it's like they caught the djen flu from Meshuggah but couldn't do it right. The album sounds like a watered down Chaosphere with no dynamic song-writing. Tried listening to the new Origin and I can't get into it. There's something about the album that isn't quite there (musically). It's not the album I thought that'd blow my mind, like the Wormed EP last year (stellar).

Spun my Depravity vinyl this morning ... *sigh*

4 tracks of the upcoming Ghost 2 were released with the Deconstruction + Ghost bundle (and 2 more bonus tracks for each).
This is amazing. The same vibe of Ghost but way way darker. Also, tons of fretless bass action.

Have to disagree here. I thought they used those "Meshuggaisms" quite well, and so far this is actually my favorite metal album of 2011.

D-Scape, I dunno man. The song-writing seemed too bland, there was a lot of waiting before they changed a riff and it's not exceptionally good either. Finishing the album just makes me want to listen to something better.

My favorite parts are the random clips of Kirk Hammett surfing and Hetfield going on a 2 week hunting trip to find himself.

St. Anger was probably one of the albums that most Metallica fans were really waiting for but when it came out they were left with the "WTF?!" expression because it was honestly horrible compared to their past records, my favorite is Ride the Lightening.  But I think the critics said it best when they said "the guitars stumble in a monotone of mid-level, processed rattle; the drums don't propel as much as struggle to disguise an all-too-turgid pace; and the rage is both unfocused and leavened with too much narcissistic navel-gazing".  But as much as we all think the album sucked and it did, really bad, the title track won a damn grammy! Tell me how that happens!?

Anyway, albums I'm listening to now (mostly thanks to Oburi) is Eyes Set to Kill (Reach and Broken Frames), D.R.U.G.S., any August Burns Red album (because they are all amazing), Adele (that whole CD is amazing), Happy Brain Slow Body (stupid name but it's the guitarist and the singer from the first TBS CD and it's amazing), Hopes Fall (Magnetic North is an awesome album from what I've heard), Moving Mountains is an awesome band if you don't mind a lot of instruments, Periphery is also amazing, I love Papa Roach but their last album blew the big one.  I'm starting to get more and more into A Skylit Drive and Of Mice and Men but we'll see if that actually happens.

Unfortunately, the Grammy's aren't the best measure for what's good in the music world. It's probably the award of the highest caliber within the music industry but the choices they make are awful. It's all about economics at the end of the day and not artistic ability. Slayer won a few times just because they're Slayer, the same with Metallica's win with St. Anger. If you look at 2003, and only within the metal community that to, here's what was MUCH better that came out - Blut aus Nord's The Work Which Transforms God, Gorgasm's Masticate To Dominate, Pavor's Furioso, Sigrblot's Blodsband (Blood Religion Manifest), Intestine Baalism's Banquet in the Darkness, Rompeprop's Hellcock's Pornflakes, Hate Forest's Battlefields ... among the few I remember.

New Bush album in over 10 years. I can find any instant hits like Glycerin, Machinehead, or Comedown and there are a few too many ballads for my taste but after listening to it more and more it does have some great songs. It's like their going in new directions from their classic 90's alternative but it's still got that sound to it, which is cool.

I wouldn't say they are classics but I grew up with 90's alternative. Bush was awesome back in the day. Griff mentioned jamming out to Smashing Pumpkins and Stone Temple Pilots in another thread. I was going to say this is stuff that me friends and I still play. And machinehead is a hit. You ever see that late night commercial that sells a box set of all the hits from the 90's? They got all those Bush songs.

And I'm not embarrassed. I don't listen to it any more but I don't think there's anything wrong with those songs.

I've been listening to a few Brutal DM bands that released albums earlier this year and Immolation here n there.

Last night I got to see Immolation play live for the 1st time and being a long time fan, being a band that's put out some of my favorite albums, I couldn't miss the show. It was fantastic. Didn't care much for the drummers triggers or the drummer (Hernandez ftw). Immolation for me is all about their first 3 albums. Albums 4 and 5 are good but incomparable to 1, 2 and 3. I heard their new EP, the songs are 'meh' and they sound a lot better when played live. Here's their set-list - Majesty & Decay, Swarm Of Terror, Under The Supreme, What They Bring, Close To A World Below, A Token Of Malice, No Jesus No Beast, Power & Shame, Dawn Of Possession, Still Lost, Den Of Thieves, Sinful Nature, Illumination, Into Everlasting Fire, World Agony (encore).

Its here:

EDIT:
http://www.loureedmetallica.com/listen-to-lulu.php (http://www.loureedmetallica.com/listen-to-lulu.php)

Metallica, these days, you either love'em or hate'em. I'm a fan of Johnny Cash, I have most of his CD's.  He has a voice that shows its age on the last CD he made (very depressing CD at that.) So I guess I'm used to guys like Lou Reed sing. I realize its not for everyone. I didn't expect a Metallica album, not even thrash. This album is something else for sure. I think I like it. It at some points gets intense (not metal like) more like mood wise. Its like "hearing" a story, and Metallica is there to kinda set the mood. Reed's voice sounds dyer, old, and tired which adds character to it I think. A lot of people hate this entire project but I can see what they're doing with LULU, I think it turned out pretty all right. Don't expect things like solo's and leads, this album wasn't made for that. Its a story kinda. Lou Reeds voice is the character, Metallica sets the mood, and the lyrics is the narrative. This is made to be listened to alone, not a album to rock out to with friends. I don't know how explain it, its like hearing a movie. Lou was never meant to sing, rather play the part. His voice is portraying the part he is playing..

Did you mean to post a link to Lulu (http://www.loureedmetallica.com/listen-to-lulu.php)? And your review reads like a compilation of press clippings from the band. It's right in line with how they've been marketing the album, making you sound like...

(http://www.skullknight.net/griffith/meindoctrinated.jpg)

I get that it's supposed to be this pretentiously sophisticated piece of musical theater performance art, but that doesn't mean it's good. Particularly when that's largely what's not good about it, Lou's style or lack thereof. For all the times Lou's vocals hit, and he and the album have their moments, usually more mellow and reserved but sometimes "like a colored man's dick," most of the time he misses and takes the music down with him (Dragon is probably the most effective hard track, and indeed there were far better choices than The View for a single). It's certainly different, and weird, but in the same way any unnatural music mash up sound weird, only they actually did it organically. Anyway, as far as this is theatrical, the script is incomprehensible and Lou Reed's an unconvincing, self-indulgent actor, but I don't know, it's better than I, err not as bad as... aw, fuck it, it's a work of genius that cannot possibly be comprehended! The relationship is symbiotic, organic and machine intertwined, a union of flesh and steel, the weaknesses of both, the strengths of neither! LOU REED'S METALLICA MACHINE MUSIC! :SK:

BTW, pre-order the two different deluxe sets of this personal labor of art for a combined price of only $230 (http://store.loureedmetallica.com/)! HOLY SHIT! ORDER TODAY!

I can definitely tell why people hate it. I like it in a overall sense. I'm torn about some parts of it.  It does have a lot of weak moments and probably could of been a lot better. What gets me is in Junior Dad, Reed isn't that bad. I mean he's not great by any means, but he seems to actually be singing and not speaking monotone words. Why couldn't he do this more often in the album? It would of been a least a little more accessible to people who really wanted to give LULU a open minded chance. Its definitely a art thing from outta left field and I can't see a lot of people getting aboard. Its not a good style, but I personally can live with liking it.

The universe is predisposed to hate this new Lou Reed/Metallica album, Lulu, and I totally understand why. It's not really designed for people who like music. It sounds like what it is: an elderly misanthrope reciting paradoxical aphorisms over a collection of repetitive, adrenalized sludge licks.

Quote
Yet there's still something vital about Lulu that needs to be remembered, even as you rip it off MediaFire and immediately forget the name of every single track: This was the dream. If considered in a vacuum, this absurd collaboration that no one wants to take seriously (or even play more than once) is the ultimate manifestation of what was once viewed as the idealized, unattainable goal of mainstream art.

Quote
If you think about Lulu within those specific parameters, it seems admirable. It almost feels important. But those thoughts are annihilated by the inevitable experience of actually hearing it.

Quote
As a rule, we're always supposed to applaud the collapse of the record industry. We are supposed to feel good about the democratization of music and the limitless palette upon which artists can now operate. But that collapse is why Lulu exists. If we still lived in the radio prison of 1992, do you think Metallica would purposefully release an album that no one wants?

Quote
The reason Lulu is so terrible is because the people making this music clearly don't care if anyone else enjoys it. Now, here again — if viewed in a vacuum — that sentiment is admirable and important. But we don't live in a vacuum. We live on Earth. And that means we have to accept the real-life consequences of a culture in which recorded music no longer has monetary value, and one of those consequences is Lulu.

Quote
For much of my life, I lived under the myth that record labels were inherently evil. I was ceaselessly reminded that corporate forces stopped artists from doing what they truly desired; they pushed musicians toward predictable four-minute radio singles and frowned upon innovation, and they avariciously tried to turn art into a soulless commodity that MTV could sell to the lowest common denominator. And that did happen, sometimes. But some artists need that, or they end up making albums like this.

I will say it should have been better, but I'll probably pick up a copy. I think I admire what they were trying to do, than what they actually ended up doing. Like many have mentioned before, there is a lot of misses. But I do like the overall effect I get from the album. I won't knock Metallica or Lou Reed for this album, they're artist in their own way. I think this is just something they really wanted to do. I can definitely see why the whole world are hold their earswhile screaming to drown out the noise. But I still can't help but enjoy it. I guess I just see it more as a play/art than music. So it doesn't really bother me that much.

Damn, I need to listen to the album even more after reading that haha! I'm definitely not going to buy it if it doesn't sound like their first 4 albums.

Don't waste your money man. Its not even... "Load" Heavy. I think it's a art piece album. Most of the tracks are improvised and 1st take master tracks. They didn't do much than mix it here and there. Although I kinda like it, I don't see anyone else on earth doing so. I'll be the first tell someone else not to buy it, unless your a HUGE fan, or REALLY open minded.

Good God...

Quote from: http://www.roadrunnerrecords.com/blabbermouth.net/news.aspx?mode=Article&newsitemID=165605
According to the Associated Press, Lou Reed and METALLICA have tapped award-winning director Darren Aronofsky to helm a music video for their collaborative track "Iced Honey".

Well, I'll give them this much, they aren't just going away quietly into the night and pretending this never happened, they're owning it and trying to turn it around. It's almost like an experiment to see how bad something can be despite how many talented people you get involved. I guess we can look forward to Metallica's upcoming 3D film (http://www.roadrunnerrecords.com/blabbermouth.net/news.aspx?mode=Article&newsitemID=165034), LULU: THE MOVIE, directed by David Fincher! :troll:

BTW, the record was estimated to sell between 12-15 thousand copies in its first week. By comparison Metallica's last album sold half a million copies in its first three days. I think the leak and subsequent streaming of the album (I wouldn't have done that) really hurt its sales because I bet a lot of that half million might have bought it out of loyalty/curiosity if they didn't already know what the rest of it sounded like. And unlike other music from popular bands, purchasing this after hearing it would be difficult to justify. Anyway, that might be a good thing in the long run when one considers the backlash already; imagine adding to it the bitter accusation of defrauding your fans. Streaming free on the Internet is just a more appropriate context for a personal project that probably shouldn't have been released for public consumption anyway. On the other hand, it could become the most talked about album nobody ever bought!

Speaking of which, here's Rolling Stone's expected non-review copout:

Hi there,

Well, it s a good way to introduce my music taste on this topic!

I am fan of classics band like 'pink floyd', 'Queen', 'Deep Purple', 'The who', 'Pat Benatar', ... But I am listening also 'Fantomas', tomahawk, faith no more (album of the year is one of my favourite album), tool, perfect circle, mr bungle, Helmet, the melvins (Houdini is a f....g album) ...., the Dilinger escape plan! Yeah, I am a fan of Mike Paton! This man is incredible! And I prefer listen to Dave Lombardo in Fantomad than in Slayer (it s maybe an offense for slayer's fan :-))!

I don t know if someone listen to 'The Mars Volta' or 'At the drive in'! their music is awesome too!

However, my favourite band is 'Karma to Burn'! I am mad of Their heavy sound guitar (Gibson SG guitar + Marshall = the best heavy sound of the World :-) )! they made 4 albums and the forth are AWESOME !

And just for some curious, if you want to listen to some french sound, I recommend :
- Nostromo : Hysteron _ Proteron. A metal acoustic Album!

'Good bye, cruel World... I am leaving you today... Good bye good bye good bye'

Yep, the royalty checks from those 15K copies of Lulu sold should probably be enough for Reed to finally buy himself a brand-new Porsche car that he always wanted, to replace that old clunker Honda moped of his :P

Well, taking into account the level of utmost delusional (http://www.nme.com/news/metallica/59828) self-aggrandizement (http://www.contactmusic.com/news/metallica-reduced-to-tears-by-lou-reed_1242038) which Metallica has had displayed before, during and after Lulu's release, it all indicates they simply weren't expecting the fans NOT seeing this piece of sonic atrocity for an exquisite musical masterpiece that it actually is.... in their insanely out of touch, deluded minds.

Nah, I don't really get taking serious umbrage with it. I mean, really, who cares (unless you're a Metallica sadist)? I actually like that this exists; I'm way more entertained than I probably would have been if they'd all just done a palatable straight ahead rock album that everyone could like and pretend is better than it really is. That would have been mediocre and faded into obscurity, whereas this spectacular flaming wreck will live in infamy. :guts:

Spun Amorphis's The Karelian Isthmus this morning on my way to work.

Last night I saw Meshuggah for the first time. I adore the band and the experience outdid the one I had from the Ulcerate show a few nights ago. I was up front in the middle, edge of the mosh pit. The pushing was as bad as the Gwar show I was at in Oct/ Nov and I was glad I survived that haha. Lots of jumping and headbanging ensued. Their sound was massive and they were so tight. They're like in my top 5 band list, but seeing them live has upped my appreciation for the band even more. Of course, my feet hurt, ears are ringing. Decapitated sounded monotonously bad and Baroness were boring as hell.

This 5 track EP has been on repeat for me the past few days. It's so good. The theme is a zombie apocalypse  and they add in all this cool stuff between tracks or in the music itself. For example they got a chainsaw starting up which then melts into heavy distortion and during breakdowns you hear shells hitting the floor as if the heavy guitars are shotgun blasts. It sounds stupid when trying to explain it but if you like this type of music and aren't sick of the zombie stuff yet (or even if you are) I highly recommend this short ep. It's just high energy metal that does not take itself too seriously.

I can't get into that album and I love Nile a lot, don't get me wrong! I'd rank their albums in this order - Amongst The Catacombs, Annihilation, Festivals Of Atonement, Black Seeds and then there's everything else. Ithy and Those Whom are like versions Annihilation 1.1 and Annihilation 1.2.

Good to see another metal listener *thumbs up*

I missed seeing him perform live about a week or 2 weeks ago but I hope to catch him again soon enough since he's from NYC (I think) and I hope hope he gets to collaborate in a close friend's project. Here's one of my favorite songs from Oneirogen (one man band) called Mutilation. Clearly space themed. The build-up from the beginning is good and then 3:39 happens #goosebumps#

The best garage rock/punk band of the the last 10y broke up again, after reforming this year. Bah, and i never got to see them live. Such an underappreciated and underrated band, often imitated by more popular acts that came after them. I'm talking of course of The Eighties Matchbox B-line Disaster. If you like Edgar Wright's movies, you probably heard them before without knowing.

I don't normally like this kind of music, but this is pretty awesome.

By this kind of music, do you mean rap in general, or this current type of rap.

Yo that was so awesome! I have been listening to the berserk OTS on repeat for like last month and this is amazing.

I love ambient electro. The knife, Life formed, syntax. I listen to a lot of ambient instrumental rock stuff too. Explosions in the sky, this will destroy you. I feel so much can be said with out words, if a song is so moving and powerful that it doesn't even need words, that what I like.  I have my own instrumental stuff as well (you can find that under the creation station link or check out my WWW)

I highly recommend Life formed though, check out the songs "cider time" or "upside down stalagmite"

New Carpenter Brut video is gorgeous to go with it's cool tunes (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=er416Ad3R1g)

Speaking of this genre, there's the new Perturbator to look out for, hopefully it's decent. Dangerous Days wasn't as good as I Am The Night. Check out a song - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nd77RcjjprU

Last year, Gunship put out an outstanding album, top 10 for me and their videos are some of the best -

Fight For Your Life (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jv1ZN8c4_Gs)
Revel In Your Time (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uYRZV8dV10w)
Kitsune (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kyuY0GWqVKE)

One of the vocalists the band collaborated with is a big Berserk fan and they used the 97 anime for the video of the song - Black Sun On The Horizon (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IRr98d-L3zQ)

Perturbator came across as a really awesome artist. I need to check him out. Industrial crowd back home seems to love him.

I've been working on music reviews for fun, just to work on my writing a bit since I'm a huge music fiend. This is what I've been listening to the last few weeks or so:

Beastie Boys - Paul's Boutique

PIG - Sick City / Shit for Brains

Ashes Divide - Keeps Telling Myself it's Alright

Atrium Carceri - Reliquiae

I've always had a fix of variety, even have every Berserk ost I know of in my ipod playlist.  Right now I'm on a Breaking Benjamin, NiN, and old school gaming kick as far as music goes.  Castlevania bloodlines has been prevalent on my morning jog.

This is the first version of DOOM I owned (the best version IMO), so it hold a special place in my heart.
I bought the whole OST from his bandcamp many months ago and I really enjoy it. This guy is very talented.

The soundtrack of the first Quake is so good too; Trent Reznor did a great job back in the days.

St. Anger was bottom of the barrel for me.  Death magnetic was as forgettable as re load and I was too young to probably view load as the same.  I think I'm expecting too much today from their early days.
Title: Re: What are you listening to? (general music thread)
Post by: Griffith on November 19, 2016, 07:04:17 PM
BTW, the whole album, plus bonus track, is included on that youtube playlist.

How is it?  Only heard one single and it peaked my interest.  If you've gotten your hands on this bad boy, I'm curious where you would rank it within the years of Metallica.  The years having highs and lows all over the map. 

Well, it kind of is all over the map of their careers, like a microcosm; you'll hear traits from every one of their previous albums, and that's not a bad thing (fortunately, they relegated the St. Anger section to a few bars of muddy lead guitar on Spit Out the Bone =). It's very much an amalgamation of their various styles that actually works, like they used every arrow in their quiver. I mean, Spit Out The Bone is like a one track Metallica sampler in itself.

The two discs almost make sense too, the first one is more uptempo and high energy, the second more moody and brooding, but apart from the 3 singles and the final track the rest of the album has a has very Black/Load vibe overall, though in that vein it's also pretty catchy and slick. It actually fulfills a few things I'd been wanting, like actually using some of the different chops they showed on the Loads without it totally dominating the sound (only one song has a little sprinkling of Southern strut, thank you =). They could have rearranged the tracks a bit more to make it truly like two separate albums, one harder and faster, one heavier and groovier. And while it's not nearly as off the wall as the Loads, it's a lot smoother and groovier with more tricks, some new, than they've employed in a while. I still go back and forth on a couple tracks but overall it's probably the most listenable album they've put out since Black.

Anyway, it's a fun heavy trip down memory lane, the way it progresses from fast and hard to heavy and groovy before returning to the former on the final track really is like the evolution of their career encapsulated in a single album, and somehow it works. They sound way more comfortable and competent doing it too, like they stopped trying to reinvent the wheel or compete with themselves and just picked up where they left off 20 years ago and put out a good album. Plus, it has a heavy song about Cthulhu, so... we have a winner! :ganishka:

I think for sure is better than st. Anger and death magnetic. Could be on par with load and reload for me. Have to listen to it more to make a concrete decision.

Yeah, I'd rank it somewhere before or after the first Load, but one's mileage may vary depending on how tolerant you are of that era.

St. Anger was bottom of the barrel for me.  Death magnetic was as forgettable as re load and I was too young to probably view load as the same.

Well, a large part of what's wrong with the last two releases wasn't even the songwriting, they were literally releasing sonically unlistenable albums (DM is actually worse than St. Anger to me that way, though I like the style and songwriting better and heard they fixed it in the 2013 remaster for itunes). But if you dislike those albums, Load through DM, but like Black and what came before you'll definitely like this better.

I think I'm expecting too much today from their early days.

Probably, but a few tracks on this album, particularly the first third will scratch that itch, and for fans that were introduced to the band later or didn't mind the 90's stuff it'll have a lot to offer you too. The thing that kind of impresses me is that they've reconciled their past with how their style evolved to the present. A career in the album of Metallica, if you will.

As for them making another Puppets, I think the problem is they couldn't produce that album in a vacuum now as fifty somethings anymore than we would be able to feel the same about it, or them, anyway. Neither the band or it's core fans are the same people they were back in the day, and I prefer they embrace that like this than try to make MOP2, which was basically Death Magnetic's mission statement. So, if the standard is it being as good as Puppets or another one of those untouchable albums, then it'll never live up (and I've seen people dismiss it on that basis, "Oh, we'll never an album like that again" duh), but if you just like Metallica in general and want to hear them sound like themselves again, it's the one we've been waiting for.

Those of you who enjoy the Doom OST might like the music for the latest Killer Instinct title. Many of the tracks in it were also composed by Mick Gordon, and he even does the original theme justice. It's a radical OST with a lot of variety, and kinda made me wish I had an Xbox One to play the game on.

Here are my personal favourite tracks:

Warlord - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mpqct1zMqTE

The Tiger Warrior - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=loSj5Iy1OOs   

Hinnamatoom - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kRtK2Fq-1Ew

Village of Whispers - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kef-MLsrC9I

Arena of Judgement - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j0kEkh4r_j0&t=112s
(great for any long-time Halo fans who'll enjoy the various musical inflections taken from series)

BONUS FUN FACT: my father did the motion capture for TJ Combo and Chief Thunder in the original Killer Instinct. I cannot play it without laughing.

No way Really?? That is just a little silly. You get to enjoy that game in a way now that very few others would ever get to!  :isidro:

But Ruhe Strom is right, The Killer Instinct soundtrack is absolutely awesome. Same game, same style but a lot more going on. I listened to the couple tracks my physical copy came with for weeks on end.

I love when I find a cool Hirasawa song I haven't heard before

Definitely, you should listen to that whole album — Kyusai no Gihou. It's my favorite of his solo works: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_rK4eWKEvI

Yes, that album is awesome indeed. I'm listening a lot "the man climbing the hologram" "kun mae #3" in alternance with "murder" cause I like to compare them and one of his remix album "hen-gen-ji-zai". Great stuff while drawing at work.  :carcus:

Know any cheap ways to import CDs from Japan? I've wanted to collect his albums for years but it's so pricey to import those kinds of things.

I always use CD Japan. Shipping isn't too expensive, particularly if you get several items at once.

Here's his listing :

One of my favorite albums by AC.

I've been listening to the new Ulver the past two weeks ... it's intoxicating

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-EKZzGu5khg

I really enjoyed that AC album actually. Think I listened to it 7 or 8 times? I also took a listen to Metropolis yesterday and it might be my favorite so far honestly.

I should also really listen to more Ulver. Everything I've heard by them so far has been fantastic. Too much damn music all the time to get through sigh.

Listening to:

Acumen Nation - Lord of the Cynics
Perturbator - Dangerous Days
Gary Numan - Dead Son Rising
Current 93 - Sounds From the Horse Hospital

I was listening to "Weight" these last days.

Awesome album. I really like the video of "Disconnect".

Right now listening to Lute Works by John Dowland:

I listen to Bach daily, but I also enjoy a lot soundtracks, such as Geralt's Theme in the Witcher series:

To all Dark Souls fans around, there's also Dark Souls Ambient videos, really great to listen to:

Kamikaze by Eminem, which is basically a ranting 40 minute verse somewhat tempered by a shameless 5 minute soundtrack cash grab at the end (veehhhnneeemmmm, vrrmm vrrrmmm). Angry like it's 1999, rage against the dying of light, Em. :daiba:

If you're curious but don't want to listen to an old white guy yell about modern internet Hip Hop for almost an hour, the first track, "The Ringer," which really is just a 5 minute verse, will pretty much suffice as the thesis statement for the rest of the album, which follows in the same vein on "Greatest," "Lucky You," "Not Alike," "Kamikaze," and "Fall." The rest is disposable relationship prattle and the aforementioned movie tie-in.

The album Pillar by Jonathan Scales Fourchestra. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GW5pC37LQCk&list=PLqcUjE-I-0rI0iqL-VWkUmFsV6LDi3l6l (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GW5pC37LQCk&list=PLqcUjE-I-0rI0iqL-VWkUmFsV6LDi3l6l) I love jazz, rock, rhythm and blues and am a steel drum player myself, so naturally I am a huge fan. If anyone is a fan of Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, Bela Fleck, Victor Wooten and Jeff Coffin are all on this album. If you want to try something different out I recommend you give this a listen.

Lost Themes I, II and Anthology by John Carpenter (the latter being new arrangements and recordings of selected film compositions). You can check out a decent sampling of material on his surprisingly dynamic official website:
