I went on a crazy iTunes binge this week (birthday gift cert.) and got:

Minutes to Midnight - Linkin Park
It Won't be Soon Before Long - Maroon 5
Back in Black - Amy Winehouse
Release the Stars - Rufus Wainwright
Everybody - The Sea and Cake
Broken Boy Soldiers - The Raconteurs
Futuresex / Lovesounds - Justin Timberlake

and don't laugh at me for the Timberlake/Maroon 5 albums... I like them both a lot. :)

Back in Black - Amy Winehouse

I'm going to assume you got Amy Winehouse's Back to Black, and not AC/DC's classic album of the other name. Either way, actually, good choice.



My last few have been:

Phantom Planet, The Guest. Just got it imported into iTunes this morning; haven't heard any of it yet.
The Detroit Cobras, Mink Rat or Rabbit and Life, Love and Leaving. This is the first band that I've gotten into entirely because of it being played on Filmspotting. I got Tied & True right after hearing them on the show, and really liked it, so then I got these. My assistant is pretty impressed, btw—up till now he didn't know anyone (but himself) who had ever heard them. Always good when you can impress the 18-24 demographic.
DeVotchKa, How It Ends. Denver band that I had heard compared to Beirut. They pale in comparison, unfortunately.
Peter Bjorn & John, Writer's Block. Kept getting recommendations from all sides on this one, so finally got it. I've only really listened to a couple of songs, but I like what I've heard so far.
Iron & Wine/Calexico, In the Reins. I've been on a real Iron & Wine kick lately, and Calexico's another band I keep hearing recos for. I've hesitated on this one for a long time, though, because I don't normally like get-together albums. But AMG's recommendation was so positive, I had to try. I've only heard it once or twice, but I think I'm going to really like this one.

The White Stripes' self-titled debut album.

Yesterday, Bjork's Medulla and a few days ago, the new QOSTA album.

yeah, sorry, I make that mistake often... but I did get Back to Black (although I love AC/DC too)

...The Guest is their best stuff as far as I'm concerned better than Negatives for sure, but I like the second album (self-titled) too.

So what do you think of that Sea and Cake?

I picked up the new Shellac entitled Excellent Italian Greyhound and Pelican's City of Echoes.  Both are good, the SHellac has a weird appearance by the guy that voices most trailers for movies.  Also I bought the SHellac on Vinyl and it came with the CD as well, pretty cool.

I really like that one.  Dead Man's Will, In the Reins, History of Lovers, and 16, Maybe Less are all superb.  16, Maybe Less is the most superb....  :)

It's the first I've heard of them. I like it, but I'm not sure it's the kind of music that will really find its way into my heavy rotation. I really like "Turn Smile Shift Repeat," though, so that one at least might.

I admit to being a huge fan of "California" - from WAY before The OC - and I really like "Anthem" although now I can't remember if that's on The Guest or Phantom Planet... honestly, I just really like the band, liked them better with Schwartzman, but I still bought all their subsequent albums.  In fact, along with The Mooney Suzuki, Guster, and O.A.R, they are one of the bands whose albums I will likely always purchase (unless they really start to suck).

*Oh, and I bought the Chris Cornell album, Carry On, yesterday.  I really like his rendition of "Billie Jean" and I love (like really LOVE) his voice, ever since Soundgarden.

"California" and "Anthem" are both on The Guest. I like them both. I've never seen The OC, and until you said that I had forgotten that these guys had anything to do with it. (This is what comes of not having had television for four years.)

I haven't been wild about his solo stuff, but you are absolutely right about his voice. I can think of no other singer that I'm as impressed with.

You're right about Chris Cornell's solo stuff, it's not great compared to Audioslave or Soundgarden, but it's still pretty good.  I'm not in love with this album, but I'm definitely enjoying it. :)

I too went on an itunes binge

... I finally bought the entire Fratellis album 'costello music' not just a bunch of singles (have to love the complete my album button)
   I bought Gran Bel Fisher 'full moon cigarette' I love most of the album especially the song crash and burn (musical guest on studio 60 last week)
   Marc Broussard- I bought a single track off his most recent album 'Just like that'
   I completed the keane album 'under the iron sea'

oh and not long ago i got
  rodrigo y gabriela (if you haven't heard them you should immediately rectify that)
and the new maroon 5

I got that a while back also. It's probably flash-in-the-pan music, but it's fun for now. "Henrietta" is the one I find myself singing most often. "It's hard to miss ya when ya follow us a-bou-ou-ou-out..."

Either Kings of Leon (Because of the Times) or, for something a little different, Jerry Lee Lewis' album from last year (Last Man Standing). That old boy's still got a few cans of whoopass left, I have to say. I'm normally not a fan of these duet albums (hated Ray Charles' and Willie Nelson's), but this one's pretty good. All but the Kid Rock song, at least.

Battles - Mirrored.  If you like Rock, indie rock, math rock or hip hop/rap you should buy this.  It's the best album I have heard so far this year.  If you want something really different from the norm pick up some Battles.

Essentially it's music that deals with complex time changes in the music.  Some bands that are like this are DOn Caballero, Cinemechanica, Maps and Atlases and volta do mar.  Those are just a few bands that make "Math Rock."  I really hate the term Math Rock, but I guess the best description would be modern prog-rock.

The new Linkin Park. It's meh. What made them great amongst all the rap/rock groups of the early 2000s was the fact that they could mix the rap and rock perfectly. It never felt like one overpowered the other. Not here. I'm sure maybe for like mood music or something it'd be fine but by no means could I listen to it all the time.

I also just got the Kanye West- Can't Tell me Nothing mixtape. Totally dig it and am definately anticipating his next real album.

I finally found Vieux Farka Touré's debut album. Not that this will mean much to most of you, but obviously he's the sun of Malian guitarist Ali Farka Touré. I've been looking for this album all year, and finally managed to find it. It's pretty damn good, I have to say. One song, "Diallo (http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&sql=50:hvfrx0qrldae~T)," especially stands out so far. Great stuff.

I also just got Keren Ann's self-titled CD, which I haven't finished listening to yet but which seems fairly good, and Calexico's The Black Light. I am loving the collaboration CD with Iron & Wine, btw. Damn, that's good.

Ryan Adams—Heartbreaker

I'm finally just starting to check him out. I've only listened to it once, granted, but so far I don't really see what everyone's on about. The best word I can think of to describe it is "unimpressive." It's not bad, but it's really not great either. Or at least if it is, I don't (yet) see it. I'll give it a few more tries, though.

Now that they have had a day or two to sink in, here are my thoughts on Paul McCartney's Memory Almost Full and Modest Mouse's We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank.

WWDBTSES: I think I'm in love. I really only heard Float On before a friend recommended this to me. The vocal stylings get a little getting used to, but once you do you are in for an awesome ride. A few faves: Missed The Boat, We've Got Everything, Fire It Up, Spitting Venom.

Memory Almost Full: The Walrus still has some kick in him! This cd is just as cool as anything he has done in his solo career. You can tell he is getting older (64!), but it seems we do still need him. There are some really cool things that he does in this cd that no new acts would or could do. Faves: Nod Your Head, House Of Wax, Ever Present Past, and Dance Tonight.

I also just got the full Fratellis' album Costello Music. I haven't listened to it yet, but my favorites from their website are For The Girl (acoustic), Country Boys And City Girls, Ole Black 'n' Blue Eyes (acoustic).

thanks for your suggestions... I checked out the previews for the CD's you all suggested and some of them are waiting in my shopping cart.  I really like Battles.  I'm going to purchase them as soon as I can, but because I'm a bad, bad girl, I spent more than I meant to buying:

Cold War Kids - Robbers & Cowards
The Decemberists - Live from Soho
Fall Out Boy - Infinity on High

I have to stop now...  ???

If you are willing to sign up to be a member on their website (http://www.thefratellis.com/members/), you can download live/acoustic versions of a couple of the songs off The Fratellis' CD Costello Music. I really like the acoustic version of For The Girl. It's totally different.

Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots - The Flaming Lips - I've had it on a constant loop since I got it.

A Light at the End of the World - Erasure - I'm an Erasure loyalist, but I enjoy the albums less and less as time goes by.  That said, this is probably the most like I Say I Say I Say, probably my favorite Erasure album.

Out of the Woods - Tracey Thorn - Really solid album.  I just love Tracey's voice.  I just wish there were more upbeat straight dance tracks on this album...like the last Everything But the Girl album.

I never could get into Yoshimi. Somewhere along the line, The Flaming Lips went from being weird, fun music to being weird, pretentious music (no offense to all the fans in these parts). I saw them on tour for Transmissions from the Satellite Heart and they kicked ass. That album is one of my all-time favorites—I don't think there's a single song on it that I'd call filler—and Hit to Death in the Future Head I still really like, also. But their newer stuff does absolutely nothing for me. De gustibus, I guess.

Sean Hayes' Flowering Spade—I like it more with every listen. This is one of those albums where you can't really just pick the cherry songs. It's at its best when you listen to it through in order, I think. Great disc, though.

Other stuff I've gotten lately:
Pink MartiniHey Eugene. I liked their first album quite a bit, and heard this one was better. I'm not sure it is, but I need to give it a better listen to be sure what I think.
A3La Peste. It's not as good as Exile on Coldharbour Lane, but it's still pretty good. "Mansion on the Hill" is one of my favorites from them. Actually one of my favorite songs, period. "Too Sick to Pray" is also really good.
Two albums from BudgieNever Turn Your Back on a Friend and In for the Kill! Really underrated 1970s metal band. Certainly on a par with contemporaries like Black Sabbath, I think. I had these on tape, but obviously I got rid of all my tapes quite a while ago. Finally getting around to replacing them. Nice to hear "Baby Please Don't Go," "Breadfan," "In for the Kill," and "Zoom Club" again.

A few more recent ones:

Nine Inch NailsYear Zero. I was a fan back in the day, but gave up on them after The Downward Spiral. I have heard so many good things about this album, though, that I figured I'd give Trent another shot. So far, I'm underwhelmed.
The White StripesIcky Thump. Parts of it I like quite a bit, but the rest I'm just not into. "Rag and Bone," in particular, sucks.
Arctic MonkeysFavourite Worst Nightmare. I'm just listening to it for the first time as I type this, but I really like it. They're like The Fratellis, only more interesting. Good stuff.

It takes a few listens to get into Year Zero.  It's way different from previous releases.  In my opinion and expertise, it's Reznor's most consistent and most focused album since The Downward Spiral.

I love The Fragile despite its indulgence.  I enjoy With Teeth though lacks consistency. 

Year Zero makes up for all of that and more.  Especially since Reznor is taking on a new direction both lyrically and musically.  I'm hoping he releases the album's 2nd part next year, which he claims will come out.

WhiskeytownFaithless Street. This music is crap. This is the kind of stuff that makes me hate alt-country. It's like a bad Son Volt imitation, and I'm no fan of Son Volt. Basically, it's a cheap rip-off of real music. It's not like Neko Case, who takes country in new directions and does interesting things with it, and it's not like Gillian Welch, who does the traditional stuff but really CINECAST!ing well. No, it's more like Uncle Tupelo, who don't do anything but sit around and fantasize about how great things must have been during the dustbowl era. There's no heart to this music. It's a papier-mâché replica of real country, and since real country's not so hard to find, I'll take that.

Sorry. End rant here.

Low, Drums and Guns—Honestly, I'm not sure why I bothered getting this one. I didn't really think it was going to be my thing, and so I haven't even finished listening to it once. I have, in fact, no opinion on it whatsoever. Anyone here listen to them?

The National, Boxer—I've only listened to this one once. It's good, though a little dry for my taste. Still, that's the kind of music that I can sometimes get really into with repeated listens, so I'll give it another couple of spins.

The Raconteurs, Broken Boy Soldiers—No, I'd never heard this one before. It's pretty good. I was a bit afraid it would be Jack White going off on one of his things, but it turns out he's pretty restrained. Which is how I really, really like him. So, so far (after one listen, pretty much) I'm into it.

And the biggie, for this board at least . . .

Spoon, Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga—I got it yesterday. I've listened to it three times. It's not typical for me to listen to a single album more than once in a day, but (1) I really like this one and (b) I wanted to play it for a couple of other people. Album of the year? I'm not sure. In the top 5? I wouldn't be surprised. If five better albums come out this year, it will turn out to have been a very good year. (Then again, it has been a pretty good year.)

I have for years. Drums and Guns is good but if you wanted to start listening to them, I'd have to suggest Things We Lost in the Fire first.

I might check it out. I gave Drums and Guns a listen this morning, and then removed it from iTunes. Which isn't to entirely rule out the possibility of me ever listening to it again, but I wouldn't put it above half on the likely scale. AMG describes their music as "glacially beautiful." Which is accurate, I guess, but unfortunately the glacial gets to me more than the beautiful does.

Piano Concertos
String Quartets
The Last 5 Symphonies
The Marriage Of Figaro
Requiem

I friggin love his Requiem. I have to say, as an addendum, that AdamAndSam really messed up on a recent top 5 when they were talking about musical "moments" in film. For my money, there's none more powerful than when Salieri is helping Mozart compose the "Confutatis Maledictis" in Amadeus. The scene we all love so much from Hustle & Flow is pretty much a straight rip-off of it, in its way (which is a good way).

Good stuff.

I've been hearing a lot about that album, I should add it to my list. I heard the single while I was sneaker-shopping in the mall yesterday and thought it was pretty good.

On a related note, I also want to listen to more Black Keys.

Drivin' n' Cryin'Fly Me Courageous. Classic album from a not-well-enough-known band. I had actually kind of forgotten about this album until my brother visited recently. It was in his collection and reminded me, so I had to have it. It's as good as I remember, or even a bit better. Southern rock with an IQ and a conscience. There are some occasional real rough spots in the lyrics, but I can look past them. They're a bit endearing, even. "The Innocent" is one of the coolest songs ever.

Allison CroweTidings and Secrets. I had always thought about getting Tidings but never got round to it. Then I realized that she gives the entire album (and a plethora of bonus stuff) away on her website (http://www.allisoncrowe.com/Tidings.html). This is sort of a Christmas album, but it does include some songs that aren't strictly Christmas songs ("Hallelujah", "Let It Be", etc.). So I've been listening to those. Her version of "Hallelujah" is my favorite, I think, surpassing even Jeff Buckley's. She has all of her albums free for download, so I grabbed Secrets while I was there. Haven't listened to it much yet.

Talib Kweli & MadlibLiberation. Another misstep in my ongoing quest to find rap music I can get into. Oh well.

The Long BlondesSomeone to Drive You Home. Kind of fun stuff, though the lyrics are not that great. Enough so that they're distracting. As I listen to it a few more times, either I'll get past that or I'll get so annoyed that I'll get rid of the whole thing. We'll see.

Sondre LerchePhantom Punch. Not really my thing.

LuceroRebels, Rogues & Sworn Brothers. Southern rock, basically. I had thought it might be similar to Kings of Leon. It is, just barely. A bit more like Soledad Brothers, whom I also like. But I'm not wild about Lucero's singer. At several points it's like he's really trying to make his voice sound rough, which I think is juvenile and uninteresting. It's one thing if you let it sound that way, but it's another to make it sound that way. Here again, either I'll get past it or I'll give it up.

Post by: spoko on August 02, 2007, 08:34:07 AM
The EnemyWe'll Live and Die in These Towns. Not really my thing. I almost didn't bother even checking it out, but I figured what the hell.

Beth OrtonComfort of Strangers. I'd heard her compared to Jem (or rather, the other way 'round), which as I've said before, I consider to be a good thing. In this case I don't really get the comparison. But this album's interesting enough so far. It hasn't really grabbed me, but I'll give it a couple more listens, at least.

Zap MamaAdventures in Afropea I. I've liked quite a bit of their stuff, so I figured I'd check out the debut. It's like the other discs—when they're hot, they're damn hot. But unfortunately, they only really hit it a couple of times on this one. "Bottom," though, is one of my favorite songs from them.

Kenny DorhamUna Mas. I have a couple of other discs—one from T.S. Monk and from Roy Hargrove—with versions of this title song that I really like. So I wanted to hear the original. I like it, but I was playing it in the office the other day and my assistant walked in and said, "Are you watching the Home Shopping Channel or something?" I could suddenly see it, and now I enjoy the song less. I'm trying not to see it in the Monk & Hargrove versions. It's mostly the bass that throws off the original, though, and I think both of the subsequent versions improved in that area.

Blonde Redhead23. I remember checking them out a couple of years ago and not caring much for it. I like this album a little better, but it's still not really taking. Reminds me of Mercury Rev and Yo La Tengo, though, which is a good thing. I will probably get into it gradually.

RooneyRooney. Finally got around to checking them out (on the very day, as it turns out, that they released Calling the World). It's OK, but they're no Spoon or anything. Enjoyable, if a bit forgettable.

The CribsMen's Needs, Women's Needs, Whatever. This is the closest thing I've heard to all the bad 80s pop that I hated so much, and that had us all so desperate for something like grunge. It's updated for the oughts, of course, but it still sucks.

Sly & The Family StoneThere's a Riot Goin' On. I've always been a casual fan of theirs—basically, I have the Greatest Hits CD and I really like it, but that's it. So I'm jumping in with this one. So far I like "Family Affair," but haven't yet gotten into the rest.

Basically I traded in a bunch of crap and got these discs.  They are all really good.  I would think a lot of Filmspotters would really like Mice Parade, especially if you like Mum as the singer sings on some of the songs.

Rocky VotolatoThe Brag & Cuss. Good stuff, kind of in the Sean Hayes/Iron & Wine/Ray LaMontagne vein. Not quite as stripped down, maybe (not just him and a guitar, in other words), but in the same ballpark. If you just can't get enough of that kind of music, it's worth checking out. I've only listened to it a couple of times, and I like it. I'm hoping it'll grow on me even more.

SpoonA Series of Sneaks and Girls Can Tell. I really dug Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga, so I went back into their catalogue a bit. Neither of these has grabbed me like GGGGG, though. They're both good, but not as hooky. That borderline-pop sound benefitted them on the last CD, I thought. So while I like these, I'm still gonna keep reaching for Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga until I get sick of it. I'm sure there are plenty of people who think it was their sellout album, but I've never much bought into that nonsense. Oh, and as an aside, these guys must really like Billy Joel. That's cool. I don't like him, but still, they make it cool. The songs that sound like him are some of their best.

Iron & WineWoman King. I can't get enough; I'm going to the EPs. Love "Freedom Hangs like Heaven".

Jerry Lee LewisAll Killer No Filler (The Anthology). Earlier this year, for some reason, I gave his most recent album a chance—Last Man Standing, one of those albums where an old-school performer does duets with a bunch of young (and not so young) whippersnappers. It turned out to be a really good disc, and eventually I had to have more. So I went straight for the biggie. I have not been at all disappointed. This is yet another example of my aversion to the mainstream serving me poorly: I should have been listening to Jerry Lee Lewis for years already. There's so much great music on here, and even the ones I'm not wild about are pretty damn good. I'm not sure I'd say there's "no filler," but out of 42 songs I can't find more than a handful that are. At the very least, this man kicked ass throughout the 50s, 60, and 70s.

I do like Rocky Votolato, Makers is his best album.  The Brag & Cuss is a lot fuller sound.  If your looking for the stripped down check out Makers, Burning My Travels Clean, and Suicide Medicine.  The Light and Sound - EP is also pretty good.

I had heard that his earlier stuff was leaner. Honestly, I don't mind the fuller sound (one more reason I'm really looking forward to Shepherd's Dog). But I know it's what people associate with Iron & Wine and Sean Hayes (those who associate anything at all with Sean Hayes, that is). I'll definitely check out Makers.

Makers is not that much different actually from his earlier work.  maybe just a little.

The Shepherd's Dog is a big departure from Each Coming Night and his other stuff.  I downloaded it the other day and I'm not really digging it too much.  If you use the program soulseek you can find the album on there.

Some more . . .

Elliott SmithNew Moon. I'm not a huge devotee, but I've gradually gotten pretty into him. I was impressed at how good this album is. I always assume that posthumous releases are really just for superfans who have to have absolutely every scrap of recorded evidence that the artist existed on this earthly plane. But this disc actually has quite a bit of good music, most of it previously unknown to me. It doesn't play like a pasted-together mishmash of all the leftover music they could find, but rather like a regular album—and a pretty lengthy one at that.

CalexicoGarden Ruin. Not as good as The Black Light, for sure. A little more processed, or something. But it does have a few moments (I really like "Roka"), and I'll certainly give it a few more listens.

Art BrutIt's a Bit Complicated. Why did I even bother? I could have told you from a mile off that I wouldn't like this, and I'd have been right. I guess I just keep kissing frogs.

What Made Milwaukee FamousTrying to Never Catch Up. Interesting disc. I could see being a really big fan of this band—they play a pretty diverse range of music, but there's a real coherence to their sound. As Waylon Jennings would say, their songs are of a piece. But they are certainly not monotonous. I'll be listening to this one quite a bit, I suspect, and getting some more from them.

Suzanne VegaBeauty & Crime. There was a time, 10–15 years ago, when I was pretty into her. That time has passed. If I were still into her, I'm sure I'd dig this. It's her sound, but still pretty fresh, and she's no slouch. Really, she's just not my thing any more. A bit too smooth around the edges, musically. And for as talented as she is, she doesn't seem to really reach very far.

Calexico's best album to me is Feast of Wire.  You get the best of The Black Light with a mix of Hot Rail thrown in.  They were on Austin City Limits on Sunday.  They are one of my favorite bands.  You should check out their DVD too.  They have a full mariachi band with them.  It's amazing.

I'll check out Feast of Wire; I wouldn't mind some more stuff that's similar to The Black Light. I probably wouldn't mind the DVD either, but these days I just don't have time for that kind of stuff. I have a stack of 10 or 15 (movie) DVDs at the house that I haven't seen yet. Not going to make time for a concert video any time soon. I wish I had that kind of time.

I'm duly impressed by it- the first two thirds go by and it's good, it's fun. But then the last three tracks just blow you away. It's solid throughout for sure, but man do they go out with a bang on this album.

I wasn't that wild about Room Noises; is this one at all a departure from that one? I don't remember specifically what I disliked about it; I think it was more a general lack of it really doing anything for me. There wasn't a lot to be impressed with, I guess. I see that this one's getting better reviews (so far), but how much does that mean?

Post by: ElectricOtter on August 20, 2007, 12:19:08 PM
If you weren't too tickled by Room Noises, then you'll probably feel the same way about Combinations. It's kind of more of the same, but there's a lot of growing up that seems to have happened in the intervening period. They definitely have started to expand their sound here and their production has a lot more grandeur to it this time around, but it's still built around the same basic sound they've had on all their recordings. I'd say give it a couple of listens and see how you feel. I've had it on rotation in the car since I got it and it only gets better the more I listen to it. But my guess is that if their past stuff hasn't exactly blown your skirt up, then this might not either.

Good, I'm glad my less than enthusiastic (I'd call it realistic) recommendation didn't shy you away.

I bought One Ten Hundred Thousand Million by The Octopus Project last night at their show in Greensboro. It's a totally solid, sometimes really great experimental indie electronica album. It's fun knowing now that what they do in the studio they can do live, so the album cuts are just sort of the blueprints for what they do on stage, but it doesn't make it any less enjoyable to listen to. I officially can't wait for their new album in October.

SpoonGimme Fiction. OK, but still no Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga. There are a few songs that I like a bit, though.

Against Me!New Wave. Frog.

Nick DrakeFive Leaves Left. How long have I been hearing recommendations for this guy? Well, I'm finally checking him out. It's a good album. Haunting and beautiful, that kind of thing. It doesn't have a lot of hooks, which I'm a sucker for, but it gets along well without them.

The Postal ServiceGive Up. This is my second (or maybe third) time giving this album a shot. I do finally see what everyone is on about (especially w/r/t Ben Gibbard—I really like the contrast between his voice and the music here, also). And this time around I like a few of the songs enough to listen to it some more. Before, I never really disliked it, but it left me pretty cold. Not so much now, though I'm still not crazy-go-nuts for it.

The ElectedSun, Sun, Sun. Obviously I went on a bit of a side-projects kick there. This one has some stuff I really like, and some stuff I really don't. I'll be listening to "Not Going Home" for a while to come, but probably won't sit through "Did Me Good" again. For example.

By the time this album sank in and I really finally got it, it was like 9 months to a year after I had first heard it. And now it battles for my favorite album ever.

Spoon - Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga and Gimme Fiction - I loved Kill the Moonlight and I felt this was a band I haven't been giving their proper dues.

Eisley - Combinations - I agree with EO - more of the same, yet fuller and more mature - these kids will be something else in the yrs to come

Tegan and Sara - The Con - not quite as good as their last...but I will give it few more goes.

The Cure - Galore - The Singles 1987-1997 and Staring At the Sea - The Singles - my iPod was conspicuously missing The Cure so put a stop to that. Plus my girlfriend loves them...

Rilo Kiley - More Adventurous - I went with the advice here and I really like'em.

Dressy Bessy - Pink Hearts, Yellow Moons - great lo-fi girl sugar pop...winrit, you would really dig them - also check out Sound Go Round


EDIT:

Thievery Corporation - The Mirror Conspiracy - I forgot how much I like this CD...I am out of control - I need Downloader's Anonymous

This is actually my favourite Tegan & Sara album by far, and that's saying something.  I read a few reviews before getting it and was doubtful — it seems to be a bit of a polariser — but I really love it.  Also, I'm going to see T&S in December — and they're playing at my very favourite venue!  Hooray!

Alright. I listened to some of Explosions' stuff while reading last night and I have to say that it wasn't what I expected at all. It was ten times better that what I expected. When I saw the number of songs on each album I was a little awestruck. An album with only 5 songs? Thats insane. I didn't notice that the songs were so freaking epic. The ones I have listened to remind me of Modest Mouse's Spitting Venom off their latest album, albeit without the lyrics. Very cool stuff. Thanks for getting me hooked.

I am so glad you like them.  Which album did you get?  The Earth is not a Dead Cold Place is great, so is the latest one called All of a Sudden, I miss Everyone.

The song "Six Days at the Bottom of the Ocean" is about the Russian sailors trapped in the Kursk Submarine.  Some of the sounds on that song are supposed to be what the band imagined what it was like for the Russian Sailors before they died.

Also if you like them you may like Friday Night Lights the movie and the show as they scored it.

I <3 the new Jens Lekman effort sooooo much: Night Falls Over Kortedala.  Lots of killer lines.  Best conversational pop music I know of.

The new Tegan and Sara is pretty standard for them, imo, though I feel they've been in a decline in terms of raw goodness since This Business of Art.  It feels rollercoaster-y for me.  I really like some of the tracks a lot.  Others I just wait pleasantly through.

Barr is kind of old, but I don't think that many people have heard of it.  It's a band and their Summary is superstantial.  If I wasn't so aware of my last.fm account, this would be on 2-3 hours a day.

Post by: spoko on September 14, 2007, 05:55:54 PM
Been a while since I posted, but I'll plug through them . . .

Todd SniderThe Devil You Know. I really need to actually listen to this one more. He's another guy-with-a-guitar type, but supposedly pretty funny. One of those. So far, I like it. Reminds me of Dr. Hook.

The Holmes BrothersState of Grace. This is an interesting group. They mostly play covers, but most of them you won't recognize right away—they go in rock, and come out sounding like gospel, bayou music, all kinds of stuff. You haven't heard Cheap Trick's "I Want You to Want Me" until you've heard their version (http://wc07.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&sql=50:39fwx0trldae~T), that's for damn sure.

Tegan and SaraThe Con. OK, but not really my thing.

Rilo KileyMore Adventurous. Better than the new one. I knew the album, just hadn't gotten round to getting it. Now I have.

Rocky VotolatoMakers. I think karlwinslow recommended this one. Good call.

Rilo KileyUnder the Blacklight. Yeah, what were they thinking, exactly?

Regina SpektorSoviet Kitsch. Was getting really into Begin to Hope, so I started on the back catalog. So far, I'm underwhelmed.

St. VincentMarry Me. Pretty good. Reminds me of Regina Spektor, and a bit of Kate Bush (whom I never liked, but I always like people that remind me of her). I'm not real into the album yet, but I'll get there.

Amos LeeSupply and Demand. It's really not that good an album, but I play it with some frequency because I like the mood it induces in my kids—kind of a quiet contemplation. I guess that means it's about at their intellectual level, or just a bit above maybe? Was that mean?

CalexicoFeast of Wire. Can't remember who recommended this, but good call and thank you. "Quattro (World Drifts In)" is the standout after the few listens I've given it, but I like the whole album.

Imogen HeapSpeak for Yourself. I was talking to a friend the other day and the conversation drifted around to her. How, I don't know—neither of us had ever heard her, but I guess we'd both heard enough of her to be interested. So I figured I'd give her a shot. It's a good album. One of my favorites from this list. Reminds me of Jem. Not quite as accessible, but certainly as good.

Some that I haven't really formed an opinion of yet:
Dr. DogWe All Belong
EisleyCombinations
Woody GuthrieSongs to Grow on for Mother and Child. I'm ever in search of interesting music that I can let my kids listen to in the place of Raffi and whatnot. Got this for that reason, but haven't heard a single note of it yet.



Guess that brings me almost current.

Jack JohnsonIn Between Dreams. You know what to expect from him, pretty much, but I still like it.

M. WardEnd of Amnesia. I guess you know what to expect from him as well, but in a different way. Good disc. "Color of Water," especially.

Dropkick MurphysThe Meanest of Times. I don't listen to much stuff this heavy anymore, which is a bit sad. But when I saw they had a new one out I had to see. It's pretty damn good. "Loyal to No-One" and "Flannigan's Ball" rock.

Augie MarchMoo, You Bloody Choir. From ElectricOtter's suggestion. Good disc.

Thurston MooreTrees Outside the Academy. Sonic Youth, without all the feedback. If that sounds like a contradiction in terms, take a listen. I even liked "Thurston @13," which surprises me to say.

Kanye WestGraduation. Yes, finally another hip-hop disc I can get into. So far "Good Morning" and "Homecoming" are in my rotation. Others will follow as well, I suspect. I'm not in love with it, but it's a good disc.

John VandersliceEmerald City. I almost didn't bother, because it seemed like just another artist who gets plenty of critical praise but leaves me cold (I've seen him compared to The Decemberists and Neutral Milk Hotel, as a couple of examples). But I have to say, there's a bit of charm to him. I'll be listening to this disc more.

The BeatlesBeatles for Sale. Finally picking back up on my "marathon," trying to work through their albums in order. This one's interesting. It has a few songs I like, but mostly I think it's worth hearing as a transitional point for the band. You can hear the later, more complicated stuff beginning to emerge here. I know, Help! is next and that's pretty much still simple stuff. But then it's on to Rubber Soul, Revolver, etc., and I think you can hear some of that transition here.

KoL have an EP also, by the way, called Holy Roller Novocaine. Four of its five songs are on Youth & Young Manhood, but [a] the fifth song ("Wicker Chair") is really good, and [2] three of the songs sound quite a bit different (better, in my biased opinion) on the EP.

I had mp3s of Arular shortly after it came out, and I really liked it and listened to it a lot, but then I had to reformat my harddrive last year and lost them.  So, when I heard M.I.A. had a knew album, I figured it was time to reacquire her first one.  Only this time, it really didn't do much for me.  Disappointing.  And I have to say I was disappointed with the new one, too.

The Sun and Moon - The Bravery.  I heard a song ("Believe") from this album the other day and I just couldn't get it out of my head, so far I'm liking the rest of the album.

Picardia Indepenza - Les Fatal Picards.  They're a strange, French, rock band... how could I resist.

Josh RitterThe Animal Years and Joe PurdyJulie Blue. I'm lumping these together because, well, this entire genre is starting to really lump together for me. I've been listening to both these albums for the last couple of weeks (you may notice both artists in my top 5 for last week, e.g.), and yet neither of them has distinguished itself in my head. And I don't just mean distinguished themselves from each other, but from the genre as a whole. I have one or two songs on each that I like, but none that I really like, much less any that I love. And the albums as a whole aren't doing anything for me. Here's the thing, though: They're both good albums. Well constructed, well performed. But they're both guy-with-a-guitar albums, and I guess I'm just suffering from overkill in that genre. (Of course, as I write this, I'm listening to—and digging—the Sean Hayes album I just downloaded from eMusic. So whatever.)

Iron and WineThe Shepherd's Dog. Come on, what can I say about this one? As everyone has noted, it's a real departure for Mr. Beam, and as most intelligent observers have noted, it kicks ass. Chock full of 3- and 4-star songs, though I must admit that none has yet reached 5-star status for me. That said, the album as a whole is spectacular. Can't wait to see them live.

Iron and WineThe Sea & The Rhythm. Catching up on the back-catalogue. This is the last one I didn't have. It's very good, especially the title track. Not sure I've ever heard a more heartfelt paean to sex. That sounds ironic or crass or something, but it isn't meant to. It's a remarkable song.

BeirutThe Flying Club Cup. They've tamed their sound quite a bit, and they seem to be spending more time in western Europe (France, specifically), but for me the magic is still there. That may simply be because Zach Condon's voice will always keep me coming back, I don't know. But I don't think so; I think the music is still great. I do prefer the earlier stuff, but I expect this one to really grow on me.

Bettye LavetteThe Scene of the Crime. A soul/R&B singer from back in the day, who never got her due. This will make a hell of a comeback, if it takes. She's a great singer, the choice of the Drive-by Truckers for a back-up band was an inspired one, and the material is also well chosen. Even the autobiographical "Before the Money Came (The Battle of Bettye Lavette)" was surprisingly good. I liked this one right away.

Mark RonsonVersion. If you like Amy Winehouse or Lily Allen, you ought to at least give this one a shot. He's the genius at work behind the scenes on both of their recent albums. And each does an excellent cover for him here as well. Winehouse's "Valerie," in particular, is really good. I won't be playing the whole album much, because I'm not really into this kind of music. (Is it hip-hop? house? beat music? I have no idea.) But that's not to say it's not good.

Brother AliThe Undisputed Truth. Holy shit am I impressed with this album. The last hip-hop album this good was Lyrics Born's Later That Day..., which was like 4 years ago. I've only actually heard this album twice now (because I always seem to be around someone who won't let me listen to rap), but I really like it. Both the writing and the execution are stunningly good, and he seems like an interesting person to boot.

Sean HayesBig Black Hole and the Little Baby Star. I literally just finished listening to this for the first time, but I quite like it. I don't know if it's as good as Flowering Spade, but then that album took me several listens before I thought it was very good (and now I'd definitely say it's one of the year's best). Certainly this is an exception to my earlier complaints about modern-day folk. Can someone please explain to me why this guy hasn't gotten more buzz? Or maybe he has, and I'm just not hearing it? Anyway, he's playing Denver next month and tickets are only $10. Think I'll be there.

Albums about which I haven't yet formed much of an impression:
· Neutral Milk HotelIn the Aeroplane over the Sea. Eclectic. Good, but I'm not sure how much it's my thing.
· The Stereogum.com compilation Drive XV. In case you're not aware, it's a 15-year-anniversary collection of different artists covering the tracks from R.E.M.'s Automatic for the People. I really like Rogue Wave's version of "The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonite," which is technically a bonus track (the official cover is by Oxford Collapse), but the other stuff I've heard hasn't left much of an impression. The whole thing is available for free download (http://www.stereogum.com/drivexv/), by the way, and it seems they keep adding more covers ("bonus tracks"). They've added three or four since I downloaded it last week.
· Lily AllenAlright, Still. To be honest, I haven't really listened to it yet. Will do.

You can say whatever you want. CINECAST! is the only thing CINECAST!-ed out. And that's for old time's sake. If you get a little too too, I'll ask you to censor yourself. Remember that as grown-up as we pretend to neon these boards - however much we pat ourselves on the backs that we are intellectualy superior and therefore oughtn't be worried about such things as propriety and bourgoise social conventions - there will always people that read these boards whose sensibilities are less enlightened and more delicate. For those people, we ought to do some self-censoring.

John FaheyThe Transfiguration of Blind Joe Death. Obviously I'm getting to this via M. Ward. I can't believe how much the latter sounds like the former. It's an interesting enough sound, though, that it doesn't bother me a bit. I have to admit, I'm not usually much into purely instrumental music. But this one is pretty darn good. I'll be coming back for more.

Neko CaseLive from Austin, Texas. Using the eMusic freebies to get some stuff I've had a hard time finding elsewhere. I hate to say it, but I was pretty disappointed with this disc. It's OK, but after everything I've heard about her live performances (and all the examples I've seen on YouTube), I expected quite a bit more. This practically sounds like it was recorded in a studio and then had audience noise dubbed in. I'm not talking about the audio quality, I'm talking about the dynamicness(word?) of her performance. Not what I'd expected at all.

Ali Farka Touré & Toumani DiabateIn the Heart of the Moon. Beautiful stuff. It doesn't grab me the way Ali F.T.'s solo stuff does, possibly because it's so beautiful. But I will absolutely keep listening to it. When you stop and focus on it even for a moment, it just sucks you in. AMG describes it as "insistent but not strident," which sounds just right to me.

NIN-The Limitless Potential

It's essentially a 21-track, 2-disc collection of unofficial remix made by fans for the fans through multi-track files given by Trent Reznor for the fans to remix via Garageband and such. 

It's actually better than most remix albums that artists often put out.

Indie experimental electronica, though this is the most grounded thing they've ever done, and I like that. They're revealing themselves to be better at slightly more straightforward music than their more experimental stuff. Either way, they're good.

You might be very pleasantly surprised to find that isn't the case. There are a lot of variations on electronica, some better than others. I can't really stand house music, either- most of it sounds like Euro-crap to me. But there are a lot of artists like Ratatat, Lemon Jelly, Daft Punk, Air and (for the weirder/more industrial stuff) Squarepusher and Aphex Twin that are incredibly good and a much easier pill to swallow. I think I smell a mix cd coming on...

Amy Winehouse - Back To Black.

It was ok. There are some great songs and some not-so-great songs. She does have a good voice, though.

B.

The National - Boxer.

I like this. I need to listen again when I'm not reading. Good from what I payed attention to.

B+/A-.

The Arcade Fire.

Same as above. I need to listen again. I didn't like this one as much from my first listen, though.

B.

Iron And Wine - The Shepherd's Dog.

I loved this album. It's great.

A/A+.

Nick Lowe- At My Age

So far, its okay but a little dull.

I'm sure I'll eventually be charmed by the wordplay, but right now its pretty forgettable.

It's basically a noise-pop album yet a really good one.  It's a bit like the Velvet Underground, the Jesus & Mary Chain, and the Raveonettes.  Yet, Stephin Merrit's lyrics are as catchy and as humorous as ever.  There's a great song called "California Girls" where Shirley Simms sings "I hate California Girls".  PM if anyone wants a leaked download url.  Shhh...

Bauhaus-Go Away White, it was leaked recently so I downloaded it last night.

It's a great album and it's definitely going to be their last.  Well, what a way to go out and it might come out on CD in March.  I'll probably get it since it's the first best album of 2008 and they did a great job.

I'm not sure how I feel about this album.  On the one hand, I appreciate how Merrit has buried his usually lovely and ornate arrangements under all of this noise, and I'm looking forward spending some time uncovering them.

However, I've been pretty disappointed with his lyrics.  Granted, I've only listened to it a few times, but several songs feel fairly repetitious and, well, lazy. 

I will agree that "California Girls" is a remarkable song, and I can't stop listening to it.  My two-year-old daughter loves dancing around to it, which is probably a bad thing, given the song's end, but its quite a wonderful thing, given the song's point.
Title: Re: The last album you bought, pirated, streamed online....
Post by: Kevin Shields on January 15, 2008, 10:42:22 PM
I consider it more as a genre-exercise in the same vein of albums like Spiritualized's Let It Come Down, Elvis Costello & the Attractions' Get Happy, and Prince & the Revolution's Around the World in a Day

I thought it was a fine noise-pop album and I enjoy the songs.  My only complaint is that it left me wanting for more for an album under 40 minutes.  Besides, there is no way Merritt or the Magnetic Fields will ever top 69 Love Songs which I think is their best album yet.  Still, I think Stephin Merritt is one hell of a songwriter whose song should be playing in top 40 stations.  They're catchy enough.  Especially "California Girls".

I tried to DL 69 Love Songs more than a month ago, got more than half on soulseek then the user logged off.  I'm totally not giving up on that batch. (so I'll probably never hear the whole thing)

Despite having their entire discography on my iPod, this was actually the first time I listened to a Xiu Xiu album (based primarily on the track Pitchfork streamed a couple weeks ago, "I Do What I Want When I Want"). I really, really enjoyed it. I have a feeling that will change to love after a few more listens.

Favorite tracks: "I Do What I Want When I Want," "Under Pressure (Queen/Bowie Cover)," "Black Keyboard."

Vampire Weekend -- "Self Titled EP"
Sondre Lerche & The Faces Down Quartet -- "Duper Sessions"
Neutral Milk Hotel -- "In The Aeroplane Over The Sea"
How I Became the Bomb -- "Let's Go!"
Loudon Wainwright III -- "Attempted Mustache"

I just recently listened to most of Animal Collective's work and fell in love with just about all of it. Strawberry Jam is a terrific, awesome record.

I treated myself to some birthday music today and picked up Vampire Weekend and The Whigs' Mission Control. I have yet to go through it as I'm currently listening to a CD that a friend of mine made me for my birthday of hardcore stuff including Dead Kennedys, Bad Religion, Nomeansno, The Misfits and Minor Threat among many others.

This past weekend, The Basement Tapes by Bob Dylan & the Band.  (my second favorite Dylan album behind Blonde on Blonde).

The Big Lebowski collection

All the songs from the Big Lebowski collected together since I-tunes can not sell the songs on the original CD except for one Elvis Costello tune.  They did miss a few on the collection (Dead Flowers, CCR, Bob Dylan) but you can go ahead and put them in on your own.

Also Radiohead done on classical piano

Post by: JAGII on March 26, 2008, 01:08:45 PM
Just went on a crazy downloading/buying spree to make up for my giving up music for Lent (which I didn't quite finish, but still...)

Racontuers- Consolers of the Lonely- I like it better than their last one so far. Seems to be a much more perfect union between the parts.

Gnarls Barkley- The Odd Couple- The first half is great, condensing 50 years of pop music into one or two songs without getting into obnoxious name dropping.  The latter half, though, seems to run out of steam.

REM- Accelerate- Its fine, really.  I'm one of the few people who thought they were on to something with New Adventures in Hi-Fi and Up, so I'm a bit disappointed to see them try to recapture their youth.  If I wanted to listen to them do their earlier stuff, I would just listen to their earlier stuff.

David Bowie- The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust- Wonderful! I can't believe it took me this long to finally pick it up.

Tobin Sprout- Moonflower Plastic- Good fuzz-pop, but gets a bit redundant at the end.

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds- Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!- I'm enjoying it, especially all the lit references on "Call Upon the Author"

Erykah Badu- New Ameryka Part One- I'm a real idiot when it comes to R&B, especially newer stuff.  There's clearly a lot going on here and I'm not sure where I'll find my way in, but I'm trying.  "The Healer" is a real engrossing song, and I'm a sucker for a toy piano/xylophone, which is featured heavily on this track.

The Constantines- Tournament of Hearts- Just kind of loud and heavy and that's it.  I've only listened too it once, but most of its dull and too serious.

Okkervil River- The Stage Names- Inventive and exciting.  I've been meaning to check these guys out for a while and now I'm ashamed that its taken me so long.  They remind me a lot of a slightly more serious Robyn Hitchcock or David Byrne.

Tom Waits- Rain Dogs- Not only am I ashamed that its taken me so long to pick this one up, but I'm even more ashamed that I've only listened to it once since buying it.

In my quest to listen to the greatest music of the 90s, I've acquired many great albums. Anyway, I started with 1990. These are the top 10 (11?) of that year ;)

11. Pale Saints - Comforts of Madness
10. Sonic Youth - Goo
09. Ice Cube - Amerikkka's Most Wanted
08. Galaxie 500 - This Is Our Music
07. Geinoh Yamashirogumi - Akira
06. Naked City - Naked City
05. Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds - The Good Son
04. Morrissey - Bona Drag
03. The Sundays - Reading, Writing and Arithmetic
02. Cocteau Twins - Heaven or Las Vegas
01. Flipper's Guitar - Camera Talk

1991, here I come!

A friend of mine says the number of great Sonic Youth songs can be counted on the fingers of one hand. I am inclined to agree. Daydream Nation tails off after the first few songs and Kim Gordon's 'arty' dirges are very dull.

Most of their albums are, it's true. But Goo was an exception. It's a good album, consistent and musical. "Tunic (Song for Karen)" and "Kool Thing," especially, are two of my all-time favorite songs. And even the songs on the album that are just (or mostly) noise--"Mildred Pierce" and "Titanium Exposé" come to mind--are still pretty good.

I remember, the woman at the record store who sold me Goo was upset that I was even buying it; she obviously considered it a sellout record. "The sound is so...clean," she said with disdain. Man, talk about you-can't-please-everyone.

Daydream Nation is one of the only albums I would call perfect. All the other ones I've heard either don't stand up or don't even try to and do something else (like goo.)

I've finally checked out the new album by Toumani Diabate entitled "The Mandé Variations."

If you haven't heart Diabate yet, I highly recommend checking out his musical stylings:

So the album's pretty good, I hope?  (I just ordered it blindly from Amazon, along with Raymond Chandler's The Long Goodbye.)

I love this CD, and I hope you do too. It is by far, my most favorite "album for ambiance."  I work in a bookstore and play this album over the house speakers at least twice a day. The songs "Cantelowes" and "El Nabiyouna" are my favorite from the album. I'm glad to see someone is checking him out, let me know what you think!

I have issues with classical artists who seem to trade on their looks, and 'fun with classical music' implies that it's some stuffy artefact from the past which needs livening up with sassy young faces. However, I will say they're better than most  :)

Post by: lise on April 27, 2008, 09:42:01 AM
that is what years of training at julliard will do for you. I have no problem extending classical music, are you saying that after mozart and stravinsky we should have had no more new compositions because it was already perfect? Or that all classical musicians should be ugly or you shouldn't know what they look like? If it just adds to the people to being exposed to the music and they are skilled musicians why does it matter? Now if they were crap musicians that would be one thing, but they were prodigies


... and yes you may have touched on a bit of a sore subject for me I have friends who are composers... and lu ahn is one of my brother and his fiancées better friends
Title: Re: The last album you bought, pirated, streamed online....
Post by: Wowser on April 27, 2008, 09:58:53 AM
Sorry, Lise. I'm sort of saying the opposite: there are too many classical artists who seem to tread the same old canon of 200 years ago, and aren't the greatest of musicians, but 'crossover' into areas of pop, often because they have a marketable image.

Where as people like your friends, composing new material, get largely ignored. I'm saying it's a bad thing for contemporary 'classical' music. To be fair, I think it's more of a problem in the UK where failed entries to Pop Idol feature heavily in the classical charts. Maybe the Ahns were a bad example, but I hope you see my point.

Title: Re: The last album you bought, pirated, streamed online....
Post by: lise on April 27, 2008, 10:06:28 AM
I see your point... and there are a large number of "classical" vocalist that I want to strangle... I just never have seen the Ahn's that way. They are playing the work of new composers, and the closest to the pop charts they are likely to get is when they accompanied an artist on unplugged a decade ago.
Title: Re: The last album you bought, pirated, streamed online....
Post by: Wowser on April 27, 2008, 10:12:05 AM
That's exactly it; I think I was wrong to pick on The Ahns, who aren't so well known over here.

The first album by Deerhunter.

I'm stoked in the fact that they're going to open for Nine Inch Nails for several dates including one here in Duluth, GA this August 13, 2008.  I've seen them before 2 years ago when they opened for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and I've met the singer one time, before I even knew of the band.  I'm glad Trent Reznor has picked them along with four unknown acts to open for NIN.  He's got good taste.

After the first listen, not suprisingly, I liked it a lot.  It's definitely better than With Teeth though at 10 tracks and under 45 minutes, leaves you wanting for more.  I'm not sure what I think of it as a whole though I enjoyed every track of the album.  It's got some rockers, sexy numbers, instrumentals, and arty stuff.  I'm still trying to divulge the whole thing and I usually try to make a full opinion after a few more listens.  I'll write my review through my blog before the Cannes Film Festival marathon.  In the meantime, there's the link (http://dl.nin.com/theslip/signup).  Just post your email and download the album for free at any format you want.

I've heard it twice so far.  I more prefer When I Was Cruel than this yet nonetheless, it's still solid. 

I think Elvis Costello has been making interesting yet solid albums in recent years.  I heard he did the new one in about a month, then just put it out there.  I always like his stuff and I still think his best album is Imperial Bedroom.  I don't like the reissues they keep putting out, I think the Rhino reissues were better.

Went to the record store on lunch and grabbed Keep Colors by The Republic Tigers. I'm halfway through it already and it's bloody amazing. I haven't heard a single song that I don't like. AND they're playing a show in Chapel Hill on the 29th!

I also grabbed Asleep At Heaven's Gate by Rogue Wave, which I have yet to listen to.

i believe that was my #2 last year (http://www.filmspotting.net/boards/index.php?topic=2932.0).  though if i rewrote it it'd probably be replaced by The Shepherd's Dog.  I've listened to that much more.

Neutral Milk Hotel - In the Aeroplane Over the Sea: I've actually had this one for a while. Never totally got into it until about a couple months ago and now, after probably 50 or so listens, I am completely convinced it is one of the best albums ever recorded. Maybe the best.

Modwheelmood-Pearls to Pig Vol. 1 and a few Sigur Ros albums, (), Agaetis Bryjun, and Takk.  The first two I mentioned, I used to have on CD but nowadays, don't work.

I'm now on the verge of downloading Von and then the new one (depending on the audio quality).

Then I plan on downloading the new Deerhunter album Microcastles and the Crystal Castles album to profile one of five acts opening for NIN this coming summer.

Lil' Wayne - Tha Carter III

I just ripped this from a co-worker yesterday on the strength of the reviews.  It's awful.  The state of popular hip-hop today is just embarrassing, save for Kanye West, (occasionally) Jay-Z, and a small handful of other guys.  Otherwise, it's all about the ones who aren't in the iTunes top ten.


Erykah Badu - New Amerykah Part One (4th World War)

I've always admired her more than actually liked any of her stuff.  I really like this album.  It's a total concept album and wasn't designed for radio play but if you're a fan of Funkadelic or post-Purple Rain Prince, you'll like this.


Weezer - Red Album

I heard Heart Songs, cringed uncontrollably, and stopped listening.  I remember the days when people were grumbling about Maladroit and Muppet videos... what happened?   ???

Yes, Tha Carter 3 is disappointing.  I'm really not sure if Lil' Wayne is capable of making a truly great album.  His mixtapes are awesome though.

I'm glad someone else shares my feelings about Heart Songs.  Just an absolutely terrible song.  Jim DeRogatis was proclaiming it one of the best songs of the year on Sound Opinions and I'm guessing the R. Kelly trial was on his mind, clouding his judgment.

Heard lots of great things about the Badu album, gotta check that one out.

you have a harddrive wherein you ripped your music collection first right?   RIGHT?


Calm down everyone, I did rip about 3/4 of my CDs to my computer --- basically anything worthy hanging on to.

The records are the real loss. I don't have the turntable/computer doo-hickey so I wasn't able to make copies of any of them. And the covers, how I miss the covers already.

OK, it was fun for a while but the Chihuahua thing has got to stop.

The last two albums I've downloaded are Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds' Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!! and Spiritualized's Songs in A&E.  I prefer the former since there's more songs while the latter is going to take a while to get used to.  Something that's in the case of acts like Spiritualized.

Right now, the WALL-E soundtrack and this week, The Dark Knight Soundtrack and the new Beck.

I'm going to see if I can borrow it from a friend. From what I hear about half the songs are good and the other half are either passable or worse.

Really? Because I made the mistake of buying the Red Album. It's awful. Just plain bad. The music is generic and the songwriting is totally uninspired. Bad music, bad lyrics means bad album. Waste of money to be sure.

I was thinking about picking that one up, but I went with John Wesley Harding and The Bootleg Series Vol. 4.

I'm going to try to get that next week though. I've never been a huge fan of Beck, but I usually like Danger Mouse's work so I figure if he could get me to listen to a Gorillaz CD multiple times an artist who I kind of like will be just as good, if not better.

I bought it after I went to see him play a couple of days ago... they were the 2nd group of 3, but I liked them better than the headliners. I waited a few days, then gave in and bought the cd. They were really good live, and closed with one of the numbers off his wifes cd (liked it too). I like the songs Cleveland and The Day Rick Danko Died best at the moment.

OK, see, that makes it a "special" edition (maybe). "Limited" ought rightly to mean, "We didn't produce very many of these--not nearly enough to meet the expected demand." For an ancillary release like this, 250,000 copies wouldn't be limited even if we were talking about some megastar. And we're not; we're talking about Nine Inch Nails.

I'll bet there are still unsold copies of this "limited edition" available. By definition, I think, that means it's misnamed.

Some recently listened-to albums: the latest from The Hold Steady and Wolf Parade, both disappointing, though the latter much more than the former; and some good ambient, One Touch of Nature, by On Earth.

Also, not new, but recently downloaded a better-quality version of Deep Purple's Live in Japan. So good.

Checked both out recently, and while I was a tad disappointed with Stay Positive (which hurt a little bit, since The Hold Steady is probably my favorite band working today) I really liked Wolf Parade's latest. It's not quite as good as Apologies to Quen Mary was, but that album would've been almost impossible to top. I've had "California Dreamer" playing on my iPod almost non-stop for the last couple days.

In the past few days.  The Coral Sea by Patti Smith & Kevin Shields which I haven't had the time to finish all the way.  And today, Modern Guilt by Beck.

Next will be the new Conor Oberst and if it's Soulseek, Pineapple Express soundtrack.

I'm also trying to find some full-length projects by Jena Malone.  I have a lot of her myspace stuff which I think is pretty good.  Way better than Scar-Jo's Tom Waits butchering.

"Comme si de rien n'etait" by Carla Bruni.  She's the new First Lady of France.  She was a supermodel and was famous for dating rock stars.  She's released a few albums, which I've yet to hear, but I like this one.  It's folky, but Carla has a very weathered, smoky voice, which I love.

yeah, laura bush's forthcoming album is going to be pretty a pretty low-fi thing, but it's getting a lot of critical buzz

Picked up Don Caballero's newest album called Punkgasm.  Pretty much picks up where their last one ended.  This time there are some vocals though.  Also it's not as good as their older stuff considering it's pretty much a new line up with the same drummer.  So far I like this album better than the last one.

So far a step down from the last album, which was a step down from their amazing debut.  They're starting to repeat themselves, it seems.  It's either going to grow on me or I'll never listen to it again.

In the past week, a bunch of shoegaze albums.  Whirlpool by Chapterhouse, Smile by Ride, and Doppleganger by Curve.  Got a couple of more Curve albums to download for my Shoegaze marathon.

Aside from the first 2 albums from Ride, all of MBV's recordings, a best-of compilation from Lush, and the 3 albums by Slowdive.

Anyone else can recommend any other landmark shoegaze recordings?

I also downloaded the 2006 reissue of Brian Eno/David Byrne's Life in the Bush of Ghosts so I can get prepared for the new album.

The free downloadable song on the site is great, mind. So I'll probably buy the album.

Just offloaded about 20 CDs to Oxfam, and about another 10 to the record exchange.

Also bought Jim O'Rourke's Eureka. Fantastic musician.

The first album was a beautiful aural K-hole, incredibly dark and yeah it definitely vacillated between straight D&B and a more garage/twostep style pattern.

I only listened to the first few tracks of the second album but the second with the typical NY garage vocals totally brought me out of the mood created by the first set.  Once I get that outta my head i'll go back and give the second a try all on its own.

Amanda is going to be Amanda - it's similar to DD but (obviously) the drumming is not as intense (Viglione, the Dolls' drummer is simply amazing) and the production is stepped up even more so than on Yes, Virginia. Ben Folds produced it if that gives you an idea of what you'd be in store for. After a first listen, I would say it's well worth the $$$ if you are a Dolls fan (which I am).

Agreed. I still love them, the titles are a minor (recent) quibble.

But do you think DS is better than RtCM? I haven't listened to the album enough yet to decide.

I suggest seeing them this fall, the Dirtbombs are opening for them and it is going to be aweeeeesome.  That's the other great thing about TVOTR, they always seem to have quality openers (I saw Grizzly Bear open for them in '06, right as they were getting popular).

I think it might be their best album.  It's certainly the one I caught onto the fastest.  Desperate Youth took me a couple of listens to get into.  Cookie Mountain took me longer, even though it's a better album, but this was the first one that clicked instantly for me.  If anything, it's made the band as a whole completely click for me.  I've been listening to all three on a loop for the last couple of days and I don't see that changing anytime soon.

Unfortunately, I missed getting tickets for their shows in NYC.  I didn't even know this album was coming out until after the shows went on sale, so... maybe when they're done touring, they'll do a couple of homecoming shows or something.  I can hope.

Pretty happy with the Koushik disc so far. Koushik is a canadian DJ. Beach Boys meets... beats.
I actually saw Jamie Lidell play a free in-store last night and I was so blown away that I had to buy a disc. I'm kind of underwhelmed by it so far, but I'll give it more time. It makes me think of soul music for commercials or something. I don't know. I don't want to be mean to it just yet.

Two albums, Deerhunter's Weird Era Cont. and Atlas Sound's Let the Blind Lead Those Who Can See But Cannot Feel.

Both of them great.  I kinda like Weird Era Cont. a bit more than Microcastle while the Atlas Sound record is amazing.

I saw a video by Kings of Leon late last night and... if CINECAST!ing sucked!  They've sold out.  They've become extremely mainstream and for what?  I liked their first album but man, they didn't have to do this. 

Has anyone heard any of the new stuff Chris Cornell has done?  I haven't but I heard he's trying to be Justin Timberlake.

OK, I'll download the new Oasis this weekend along with Dylan's Desire and the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack.  The latter is for me and my parents. 

And for the record, Definitely Maybe is a way better album than What's the Story (Morning Glory)?.  Noel Gallagher said so as well.

I like it a lot, but I'm a big fan of this period of Dylan's work.  It obviously can't compete with the first, three-disc one, and the live albums are a whole different animal.  I like it more than the No Direction Home album.

Oasis-Dig Out Your Soul

Definitely their best and most consistent since Morning Glory.  It does remind me a bit of Second Coming by the Stone Roses in terms of Liam's vocals but the songs are definitely strong and they're definitely back.  Still one of Britain's best bands rivaling Radiohead.  Besides, most of the U.K.'s mainstream bands like Keane and Coldplay suck ass.

So far, it's pretty damn good.  Sounds like all of their other albums but hey, they stick with what works.  No ballads as usual.  A little polished in the production but overall, it's AC/DC giving us what we love about them.

I'd like that live album as well. You should definitely pick up Doomsday at some point though, it's a great CD and has what I usually consider to be the greatest hip hop song ever recorded on it, "I Hear Voices" Parts 1 and 2.

Alright very cool, I may pick this one up as well then because when that song was released in the MTV-2 Pack 01 in Rock Band I loved playing it and I still go through it every once and a while to this day.

In retrospect that sentence was poorly constructed, but I'm too lazy to touch it up. Thanks for the info chester.

Well, for a music dicator's club of sorts at Epinions.com.  This year, I get to be paired with the host of this write-off.  Yet, we went for local bands this time around where the album I just downloaded is Letters to Cleo's Wholesale Meats & Fish while he gets to review Deerhunter's Cryptograms.  The Letters to Cleo record is actually pretty good.  There's a few songs that aren't up to par with rest of the album but overall, it's solid.

All Hail West Texas might be my favorite MG.

I really, really like Tallahassee. They are both great albums though and I'll probably download a few more off of iTunes in the near future, I'm just not sure which one to pick up next.

You really can't go wrong with him but if you like the newer stuff I'd definitely recommend We Shall All Be Healed, The Sunset Tree and this year's Heretic Pride.  Get Lonely is probably my least favorite of the newer albums but it's still worth checking out.  The Coroner's Gambit is from All Hail West Texas era and almost as good.  Also I'd recommend the compilations Bitter Melon Farm and Protein Source of the Future...Now.

If you use Soulseek let me know, I've got all of them.

Great set, that one. I'm not so keen on disc 3, mind. They should have used more tracks from the original sessions. That remixed version of "One More Kiss Dear" is quite poor (and was never a great song to begin with, or at least a song that stuck out like a sore thumb on the OST).

But I'm glad I bought it for the remastered disc 1 and second disc.

- "Shackler's Revenge" (METAL! and TECHNO! - meh)

- "Better" (Second Single - better than the first, is that a 303? and whats with the Linkin Park sound?)

- "Street of Dreams" (Power Ballad!)

- "If the World" (Flamenco & Funk?!? YES! - best track on the set)

- "There Was a Time" (This one was leaked last year and its a big improvement, the rerecorded vocals are a huge improvement over the strain of the first take and the whole thing no longer sounds like a Chili Peppers reject.)

- "Catcher In the Rye" (Classic rock thing happening here - very 70's, very Queen - Edit: HA turns out Brian May was brought in on this one for a sec)

- "Scraped" (a chorus of strange howls, i think Axl recorded 2 vocal takes of this then badly spliced them along with effects and overdubs)

- "Riad N' The Bedouins" (I just can't get past the awful lyrics)

- "Sorry" (another power ballad, i like this one, lyrically axle still being a twat though)

- "I.R.S." (This'll be a single - catchy w/ great licks)

- "Madagascar" (NO NO NO NO NO NO NO!)

- "This I Love" (decent if a little too indulgent)

- "Prostitute" (album closer, Lyrics: "It Seems Like Forever and A Day, If My Intentions were Misunderstood, Please Be Kind, I've Done All I Should..." A little too on the nose but the track rocks)

There is sooooooo much hubris in this album, sometimes it works often time Axl's christ on the cross pose is just painful and when he compares himself to MLK its just wrong. But everything that has been leaked to date sounds much worse than this final product so hats off to that last polishing. Now off to get my Dr. Pepper!

How dare you!

That comment is very unfair.  The soundtrack is a bunch of crappy singers; the hilariously terrifying sound is just Brosnan.  ABBA made some of the greatest pop music ever but it should only be left in their capable hands.

Just got this in the other day, it's damn good. And apparently he says on there that Mixtape Messiah 7 will be free and out before his next album, which is supposed to be a first half of 09, which would me that between August of 2008 and the first half of 09 he would have put up Mixtape Messiah 4-7, Venom, and this CD, which is really incredible. He's also going to talk about Mixtape Messiah 8 and 9 on 6, which means they are in the works as well. Chamillionaire is on a roll the likes of which I've never seen.

I'm in a weird place with that album.  I've enjoyed Animal Collective for a few years now and it seems that I don't like MPP as much as everyone else.  I hope this isn't me becoming one of those people that starts to lose interest in a band just because they are becoming more popular.  I probably just need to spend some more time with it but after a half dozen listens only about half the album really does it for me.

I haven't listened to the Trees yet, but the rest are in order of preference so far, though I've only finished the first...

I was a bit disappointed in this; although, the Vampire Weekend track is quite bangin'.

I'm not sure if I listened to that one yet or not, I stopped at The Submarines track I think, and that one was pretty good from the first minute and a half.

There are some good songs so far, but I'm only really going back to the MIA songs. There is a pretty good remix of Paper Planes, though.
Sorry if this so old that it's so old, but I thought it was hilarious:

101% of the things I say are intelligent and profound. I think the Miley CD is slightly better than the Trees one, I've finished them both I think.

Absolutely beautiful.

Actual album is a grower (still will not come near the first set or even the second), but the second cd of remixes is instantly awesome.

thanks JBizzy, would put it top ten but its a fun freaky listen.

What, no new Morrissey yet?

I'll download it this weekend.  I've already gotten a couple of M. Ward albums not including the new one.  I want a better quality audio of that album.  I just downloaded the last Antony & the Johnsons album which is amazing.  Now, I'm excited to hear the new one which I will download tomorrow.  Then Lotus Plaza from Lockett Pundt of Deerhunter.  After Morrissey, I'll do some Prince.  And maybe... Chris Cornell's new album for a review. 

101% of the things I say are intelligent and profound. I think the Miley CD is slightly better than the Trees one, I've finished them both I think.

Sung Tongs is probably my favorite of their albums.

I just downloaded the last Antony & the Johnsons album which is amazing.  Now, I'm excited to hear the new one which I will download tomorrow.

I Am a Bird Now or the Another World EP?

Fresh Air had an interview with Antony the other day.

2 days ago, I Am A Bird Now and yesterday, The Crying Light.  I think I prefer the former a bit more.  Right now, some stuff from Lotus Plaza.  The side project from Deerhunter guitarist Lockett Pundt.

I haven't spent enough time with The Crying Light yet, but I don't think it quite reaches the highs of I Am a Bird Now.  I'm seeing him next week so that could have an impact on how I hear the new songs.

This Chris Cornell album is flippin catchy.  Keeps popping up in my head.  Think Chris' lyrics suffer from trying to fit into pop melodies but those melodies are just so on as is Tim's production.  "Sweet Revenge" is like the best Michael Jackson song of the last decade.  Honestly... MJ needs to work with Tim if he ever plans to put out new material.  This is really the blueprint for the collaboration.

Yeah, that was an odd decision, and it sounds like a cheap "sound machine" amnesiac grandmothers buy from their local Walmart... at least it's a track in itself (as opposed to the latter end of a good song, like "Aqueous Transmission" by Incubus) so it can be instantly deleted from my itunes library. Nothing is more annoying when a track like that pops up during a party shuffle.

U2-No Line on the Horizon

There's a couple of great songs, a few good ones but mostly dull.  The production is uninspiring and really polished for my taste.  Plus, the album lacks any real direction or excitement.  It's just not a good record but not really a bad one.  I think this is their weakest record since October.

Have you ever read Lester Bangs' legendary essay? (http://personal.cis.strath.ac.uk/~murray/astral.html)

I hadn't read that, it's very good.

I agree that after Astral Weeks, the other albums feel slight and rather silly.

Sadly, the audio quality is horrible since it's not a proper rip, but the CD kicks ass. After the 24th I'll download a proper copy so I can get a better feel for the record as a whole.

Spill over from the Jonas Brothers film. She's a really good singer, though she's no Miley and thus far I'm pretty sure this is no Breakout, but it's pretty good.

Yes, though I've only seen commercials for that film, but I'd probably watch it if it came on and I had nothing else to do. She's also the star of the new Disney Channel Original Comedy Sonny With A Chance, though I've only seen one episode of that and it does not seem like a very good program, though I'll give it a few more watches in the future before forming a full opinion. She doesn't seem to be a very good actress, and as I said in my Jonas Brothers review she is a very odd girl it seems, but she's a really good singer.

The last 2 are Animal Collective's Strawberry Jam and the self-titled debut by Crystal Castle.

(http://www.nin.com/strobelight/images/strobelight-cover-art.jpg)

I'm serious, it's amazing.  The guests on that album.  Justin Timberlake, Chris Martin, Bono, Fergie, Maynard James Keenan, Al Jourgensen, Alicia Keys, Jay-Z, and my personal favorite, a duet with Sheryl Crow on the hit single "Pussygrinder".

Well, I found about it through Pitchfork and laughed.  I even went to the site knowing it was a joke and played along with it.  I decided to up the ante by writing a fake review (http://www.epinions.com/content_5296988292).

It's really about taking a piss at the new Chris Cornell album, which was a disaster.

Yeah, I don't.  The S/T and split album with Angels of Light will remain their pinnacle.  Seems like when they went from a 4 piece to a 3 piece (with added members from other bands), they lost the concept of editing.

I'm just saying, take away "Helter Skelter" from The Beatles, which was only a good song because they were poking fun at The Who or The Clash or something I think, and they are just another generic band who put out Dylan songs a few years after Dylan did.

Is the first Dylan Sprouse or Cole Sprouse?

That makes very little sense. I don't think The Beatles were anywhere near Dylan and they weren't trying to be. There is almost no overlap between the two (except that both were popular and influential).

I would disagree. Aside from the two both transitioning from more traditional musical forms, general harmonious pop rock for The Beatles and pseudo-folk for Dylan, to the new electric rock and roll scene around the same time, The Beatles never reinvented their music until Dylan had done so already, and usually they would just follow Dylan's lead. With Rubber Soul and Revolver the band washed back and forth between the electric style and the folk sounds that Dylan was not only perfecting with his big three, but was had already mixed together on a single record a year earlier with his release of Another Side. Then we go to what, from what I gather, is considered to be The Beatles crowning achievement, the Sgt. Pepper's record, where their lyrics take full front as they finally blend their pop rock sound with the electric sounds that had recently gained popularity. However, by this time Dylan had moved on to the minimalist record John Wesley Harding, one of his most poetic works and one where the electric sound was put on hold for the traditional folk sound. The Beatles returned to a more traditional sound years later with The White Album and Abbey Road, but by that time Dylan had already reinvented his sound once again, building on the folk traditions and mixing them with the country sounds. I think there is a good deal of overlap, much of it happened around the same time, but Dylan clearly worked with the sounds that The Beatles popularized earlier in his career and they kept playing catch up.

Nothing is going to invalidate the goodness of The Beatles, you like them and you're going to continue to like them, I would not try to argue against someone liking music because, as I have stated elsewhere, it's one of the most subjective things one can assess. All I do is question how warranted all the love and respect for band is, which I think is debatable just by comparing them to Dylan, not factoring in other bands from that time. The same case, I suppose, can be made against Dylan by using Woody Guthrie, but I think lyrically Dylan reaches heights that Woody never does, conversely The Beatles rarely come close to the lyrical depth that Dylan presents. If I want instrumental sound I go to Rush, if I want pop rock I have The Beach Boys, and if I want lyrics I have Dylan and the Mountain Goats. It puzzles me that The Beatles be classified as pioneers and still retain such high status today when they really didn't do anything all that special.

I have likely made it very clear in other threads that when I listen to music I rarely care what it sounds like, if I want to hear a nice sound without thinking or anything I'll put on Miley or Demi. What I want out of music is wordplay and well crafted lyrics, regardless of how they are delivered.

What you just said made no sense at all.  

Do you even listen to songs like "Revolution", "She's Leaving Home", "Blackbird", "Julia", "Let It Be", "In My Life"?  The list goes on and on.  

In terms of craftmanship in pop music, the Beatles were genius.  I don't think they got enough credit as musicians.  The riffs in "Ticket To Ride" and "Taxman" are still insatiable and were like nothing that was heard of in pop music at the time.  Even a song like "And Your Bird Can Sing" has a performance that I think is quite seminal in terms of production and craftmanship.

Lacking lyrical depth comparing to Dylan?

Come on.

You listen to CINECAST!ing Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers and you think the Beatles lack any lyrical depth in comparison to Zimmerman?  

Metallica and Van Halen sucks?

I firmly believe, to fully develop as an individual, one must acknowledge and embrace both 'high' and 'low' culture. I listen to Miley because it sounds good, I approach Dylan in a completely different manner. As far as pop music goes I would listen to the case that The Beatles are better than Jonas Brothers or Miley or Demi or what not, I would likely disagree, but I would listen to that argument. When approaching The Beatles the way I approach Dylan the disparity in songwriting is very great.

When I saw him recording his new album a few months ago, someone requested "Peanut Brittle" and he actually did it.  I've heard it so many times and it still kills me.  He's one of those guys that can always hold my attention and make me laugh even if he isn't being "funny".

Both of Patton's albums are really great.  I like Todd Barry's albums a lot, though I could see where some people might not like his delivery.  Eugene Mirman has two albums that are pretty funny.  John Mulaney had a new album out recently that I've not yet listened to but his Comedy Central Presents was really strong and features a lot of the same material.

Apparently Steely Dan has 7 or 8 studio albums and I have all of them, but all the files are .flac or something and iTunes and Windows Media Player is not accepting them, only VLC works which means there's a good chance I'm never going to listen to them because having two media players running at once is such a hassle, plus I won't be able to put them on my iPod.

If you haven't listened to the first 2 or 3 Death Cab albums, you should.  I think I like them more than the 2 most recent albums.  Also, there's an EP where they cover Bjork's "All Is Full Of Love" that's really, really great.

There's a possibility I just bought this on vinyl...

(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/5/56/Satellite_Skin.jpg)

Now I find it hard to believe that one of two things are correct since I was able to purchase this at their official website. The first thing I would call into question is the availability of this on the vinyl since it is supposed to be a one time limited collector's edition thing. If I do get a copy then I would also call into question the claim that only 4,000 exist at all and that is all that will ever exist. Now these guys, from what I gather, are fairly popular. I mean at least 4,000 people listen to them, I'd assume. Considering it only costs $6.99, came to about $11 with shipping and tax, I do not see why however many were planned to be made available on the website were not immediately sold out. I mean I don't even have a record player to listen to it on, but if there are no plans for a vinyl re-release and it's only $11 and only 4,000 are being printed then it seems pretty limited. You think that would be a selling point for most collectors and fans. Hell, I can barely be considered a casual fan and I picked it up, maybe. I'll believe that my order will happen when the thing arrives here and is labeled with a number between 1 and 4,000. I don't know. jbissell, you're the music expert, this seems odd to you too, correct?

There's a possibility I just bought this on vinyl...

Now I find it hard to believe that one of two things are correct since I was able to purchase this at their official website. The first thing I would call into question is the availability of this on the vinyl since it is supposed to be a one time limited collector's edition thing. If I do get a copy then I would also call into question the claim that only 4,000 exist at all and that is all that will ever exist. Now these guys, from what I gather, are fairly popular.

I don't know about this specific case, but limited vinyl runs usually are very popular.  Hell, I'm sure a lot of people that buy them aren't even necessarily fans of the particular band, they just see that magic phrase and think they can make a huge profit off selling it on ebay.  I know last year Jay Reatard released a bunch of new singles that were limited to 500 (?) and those sold out in a matter of minutes.

That's what puzzled me. I just thought it would be cool to have because, well, there are so few and it's CINECAST!ing orange! I don't know why they let me order it though because you would have thought they would have just cut orders after they hit a certain number of preorders. I need to find a store that sells vinyls around me though just in case.

I've made my last major purchase for a while as I just ordered...

(http://www.definitivejux.net/files/imagecache/container_full/files/news/DJX179-coverwebsize.jpg)

I got the $30 vinyl deluxe edition because I was informed they still haven't reached the 100 order cut off for signed copies so I am getting

    * Signed 2xLP by Cage and Alex Pardee (first 100 orders)
    * 11x17 Poster
    * DFM Stickers
    * Digital Download of Depart from Me
    * Digital Download of Depart From Me Instrumentals
    * Download of I Never Knew You EP + Instrumentals
    * PDF Booklet

(Ships July 1)


I'm pretty excited even though I don't have anything to play the vinyl with, though I hope to get a record player in the future. Still, it's signed by Cage, which kicks ass, and it will be like a personal collector's item.

It was more directed at thevoid, but sure.  I was really into Isis a few years ago but didn't care much for the last two albums so I wasn't sure if I was going to bother checking this one out.

Great follow up to their equally great Songlines album. The Derek Trucks band has shifted to being able to form full songs instead of just jam pieces and instrumentals, but that's not to say there isn't amazing musicianship here. Derek is my hero, the master of the blues slide guitar. Saw them in concert about a month ago for the first time and it blew my mind, the best concert I've ever been to.

Sick joke.

Heh, the original is actually pretty bad - just from a production standpoint its so weak (slowed down southern hip-hop beat without the funk) lyrically I things its just funny as shit though.  The EP doesn't have the original but a couple of remixes which I actually dig.  will.i.am takes his own shitty sounding track and makes it an awesome french house deal with guitar stabs and filters.  I love anything electro so the David Guetta mix is fantastic.

void is right though - they were better pre-Fergie.

Good news. This just arrived today and it seems to be legitimate. It's on the orange vinyl, which looks awesome, it is stickered on the jacket as being a limited print, and on the back it says it is number 2749 out of 4,000. I think everything, somehow and despite my previous skepticism, checks out, right?

Umm. That's a reference to the name of the band, I take it? And thus, indirectly, to the classic Jerry Lee Lewis song that they're named after?

So disc 3 with all the demo versions is really interesting - not terribly good but the lack of vocal production and minimal backing drums and bass emulators is a nice insight into how a synthpop group builds its trax.

Holy shit! "Judas" has cheesy keyboard horns - so awesomely awful.

No, that seems waaaay off the mark to me.  The Phoenix album isn't built around some stupid concept.  I could see if you wanted to compare them to The Strokes or someone like that but I don't see the connection between the two at all.  I really wish Kevin Barnes would get rid of all the theatrics because the first few Of Montreal albums are good.

I'm more talking about sound.  To me, Phoenix sounds like a toned down version of Of Montreal, without nearly as good of hooks.

To each his own though.

Not exactly, no. But I'll just listen to "Welcome to the Jungle" in between each song, as a cleansing agent.

It's pretty good but I think American Idiot was much better in terms of its production and not having as much ballads as the new record does.

yeah - I don't think its as remarkable as AI was, though not because of the ballads.  also Peacemaker is one of my favorite tracks of the year so far.

Why do you ask?]

As for the music itself, I can see why people like it and think it's going to be all that. It's pretty unique, and does successfully bring together a lot of different elements/approaches. But the problem isn't that it's not easy to categorize for radio, in my opinion. The problem is that it's entirely cerebral. It feels more like mental exercise than art; it's not compelling.

I'll give both albums some more listens and see if my opinion changes. But that's my initial impression.

A friend of mine has it (the CD version) so I've heard a good chunk of it. I was actually disappointed with how few "new" songs it includes, most of  the unreleased stuff is different versions and live versions of songs we already know.  I also thought including Massey Hall and Filmore East is deceiving; it makes this release seem bigger than it is 'cause those have already officially come out. With all that said, it is a great set and the artwork and booklets are really cool too. If you're broke I'd wait to see if the price comes down, but if you have the money go for it, I'm sure you wont be disappointed.

For me the highlight of Archives 1 is the high school stuff, which is fun because I'm from Winnipeg, but it's really Volume 2 that I'd be most likely to spend the money on. If it ever comes out.

I'm like that with Johnny Cash, my goal is to one day own every record he ever came out with and manage to have every song of his on my iPod. I've tracked down a lot of it, but finding the rest will be rather costly, but Cash and Queens Of The Stone Age are the only two artists I am willing to spend oodles of money on.

Bad ass! That EP is fantastic, I was supposed to review it but I'm just going to wait for the whole CD and talk slightly about the EP in the intro. The Bike for Three one is great, haven't listened to the Dangermouse though.

I love their first two albums and I was disappointed that this one didn't seem as punchy at first. The more and more I listen to it though, the better and catchier it gets, and I'm really loving it.

They're coming through my city in September and I couldn't be looking forward to it more.

Yeah, I'm not sure why it didn't work the second time around because her first covers album was pretty solid.  Jukebox is definitely her weakest album and one I never go back to.

Finishing off Mixtape Messiah 7 with Discs 3 and 4. I do not think there is any new material here, just different mixes, but I'll see what Watts does with the first disc and having the thing Screwed and Chopped on the second is great. I understand why, especially considering his profile and the obvious statement Cham wanted to make by choosing him, Cham went with 5000 Watts, but not having O.G. Ron C do the chopping feels odd.

I just pre-ordered the Beatles Stereo box and the Big Star box.

You rule!!!!!

What record should I download first:  Beck's Record Club #1:  Velvet Underground & Nico, the new Atlas Sound, or a NIN bootleg for my NIN profile this month?

I heard an Atlas Sound song on All Songs Considered, it was good but nothing special...I am very intrigued by Beck's Record Club, I would go with that.

Right now, I'm downloading a NIN bootleg of the band's tour with David Bowie back in '95.  I think I will go with Atlas Sound because Bradford Cox is a local and from one of my favorite bands at the moment.  I'm definitely intrigued by Beck's Record Club thing which I heard he will do Leonard Cohen's first album that I need to hear.  Then I think I will go for the Arctic Monkeys.

Originally made in 2006 but took 3 years to come out.  Yet, you can't help think about the She & Him album and compare it.  It's OK though there's a decent cover of Chris Bell's "I Am The Cosmos" but I don't think I want to hear Scarlett Johansson sing again.  I like Pete Yorn but he hasn't made anything exciting since his debut album though the 2nd album had great stuff.

Wrong! My recommendation is for Jonas Brothers.

My group has to do a demo lesson plan on Tuesday and we are doing imagery in poems. To open up the class we want the students to bring in lyrics for their favorite songs, and as the teacher we need to model what we are going to do so our group needs to pick a song. There has been talk of using a Beatles song, which does not please me. I shall push for the Goats, but chances are that will be gunned down.

I WANT that 20th Anniversary collector's edition of the Stone Roses' debut album.  It's my all-time favorite album. 

Last night (after a few nights of troubles with the other comp),

(http://www.squidooresources.com/beatles/pleasepleaseme.jpg)

And after comparing it to the old 1987 CD copy that my dad have.  The remastered version beats the shit out of the old 1987 edition.  In fact, I'm enjoying the album even more as it reminds me not of my youth but also of how great pop music can be.  These guys were geniuses in creating catchy, simple pop music.  I bow down to Lennon, McCartney, Harrison, and Starr plus Sir George Martin and his team of engineers.  I will get all the remasters I can through MP3s and later, the remastered CD versions so me and the old man can enjoy them and we can share it with his brothers.

It's not, but it's close. "Cactus" is the best song on that record.

This is the only Pixies I have ever heard, outside of bootlegs and live performances, and I quite love it.

I'm not suprised you would say this, it does seem like a song for you. and while that song is good, the genius of Bone Machine, Gigantic, and Where is my Mind easily tops it.

I have been thinking about using Where Is My Mind for my entrance music at my next fight, if I ever have one.

3. Bone Machine

This is an easy argument to solve because the Pixies made only awesome songs, Although Doolittle is their masterpiece.

I almost bought tickets to see them play Doolittle on their current tour but then decided against it.  I caught them on the last go-round and they played everything I wanted to hear.

See I disagree. It's hard to compare the two. I love Surfer Rosa's edge, but love Doolittle's surrealism. It's so hard to pick.

And only one has Tame and Monkey Gone to Heaven. However, only one has Bone Machine and Gigantic. Like I said, hard to pick.

Yeah I saw them on the first reunion tour, and I'm not sure if I'd bother if I had another chance. It felt like closure.

Yep, pretty much how I feel.  The fact that tickets were almost $50 before all the extra fees made the decision to skip real easy.

Half the reason why I watch Wes Anderson films are for the amazing soundtracks...and of course the slow motion shots.

Also Dirty Mind which I think is his best album before 1999 and also one of his best albums overall.  Parade has some killer tracks as well - Kiss, Under the Cherry Moon, I Wonder U, and Sometimes It Snows in April (the first two in my top ten Prince songs list).  Also, get one of his compilations so you can get the B-side Erotic City (also in my top ten Prince songs list).
