Title: Music Megathread
Post by: k-onmmunist on August 07, 2010, 12:27:58 pm
This is the place for discussion of music, reviews of albums/EPs/singles, top album/EP/single/whatever lists, concert discussions, current events... everything except for polls and the song you're listening to right now, for which we already have a thread :P I will write up my first review soon.

First off, it might be good if we discussed our music tastes in general.

I first got into music by listening to punk, believe it or not... old Sex Pistols, Ramones, X-Ray Spex etc. songs. From there my tastes panned outwards to include New Wave and other 80s music as well as classic and progressive rock later on when I started listening to Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin. I also went through a godawful phase of liking musichall. I know. Not good :P

Anyway, my current tastes are largely based on my own explorations rather than being based on my parents. My favourite genres of music are jazz, early indie, industrial, folk, grunge, art rock etc. Jazz especially is one of my recent acquisitions - both my parents hate it. In fact, all my relatives are either indifferent or hate it. My stepmum is the only exception to that. But I listened to Kind of Blue by Miles Davis and have been hooked ever since.

By indie, I mean the Smiths, the Stone Roses, Neutral Milk Hotel, Verve, Pulp, Oasis... all older bands. I cannot be doing with Arctic Monkeys, Vampire Weekend etc. :P

My dislikes are country, metal, pop, gangsta rap and a lot of dance music (That said, I love bands such as Orbital and Leftfield)

     I used to be completely ignorant about music. I listened to virtually nothing that wasn't in a video game & could not begin to describe the differences between Abba & Black Sabbath. I really started getting into music when I was 16.

     I was turned onto rock & folk by my mother, who was a big fan of the Rolling Stones & Bob Dylan back in the day. I learned about jazz from playing in my school's band class, which was instructed by a free jazz enthusiast. I began listening to country because my ex-girlfriend is a huge devotee of it. As for metal, I decided one day that I wanted to listen to something post-1975 & came across Metallica. I am also starting to get into classical now, particularly Wagner.

     I do not have any genuine dislikes (besides Brokencyde), though I do admit to shy away from pretension in music. With that said, I don't really care about pretension if I find the music to be enjoyable enough.

Well I love love love country. I listen to it so much the when me and my mom go to a resturaunt and I order they ask am I visiting from the south. :P I love old fashioned songs like "end of the world" by Skeeter Davis or "Rose Garden" by Lynne Anderson the everly brothers etc. Then there is the newer country. Chris young, "game on", " Honky Tonk Badonkadonk"  and "Ladies love country boys"trace Atkins,"If you are going through hell" and "watching you and farmer daughter" Rodney Adkins. Reba McEntire, Carrie Underwood etc. Most of the greatest country songs are so morally bad. I of course can go on and on with country but I shall halt.

Then we hit Mo Town. The Shirelles, the Crystals and the four tops.  "Will you love me tomorrow", "Then he kissed me", and Lesley Gore. She is something. "It's my party" and the follow up song, "Its Judy's turn to cry" and a song with a tad of a movement going on, "You don't own me". And don't forget  "Be my baby" by the Ronettes.

And I adore Edith Piaf. I like "Milord" and "Non, je Ne Regrette Rien" There is also Charles Aznavour. I actually acquired him through my mom. "La Boheme" and "Emmenez-Moi" are my favorite.

Then there is anything in between. I really love any kind of song as long as it is not a) boring and it over 5 min generally. If it is over 5min I have to be doing something. B) it can not, CAN NOT be metal.

This thread needs some Dudefest: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IWSaQ1phHZ8

My musical tastes consist of punk, indie and hardcore (and emo but that's kind of redundant since all emo falls into at least one of the three preceding categories.)

When I was younger, if it wasn't classical then it wasn't music.

Now I don't listen to much music at all. I've heard all that I've liked and I just prefer the silence.

Stuff I've Discovered - 1:

I've been getting back into my grunge stuff lately and I've come to the conclusion that Nirvana are, while still being a great band, probably the worst of the grunge four (Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains and Soundgarden). Listening to Facelift by Alice in Chains and Superunknown by Soundgarden made me realise they're underrated compared to the other two. I think it may be due to the more metal based sound of both bands, especially AiC.

At the same time, I've been looking at some of the stuff by lesser known grunge bands. I downloaded Temple of the Dog's self-titled album and it was a pretty well made record - sort of like a less angsty Pearl Jam.

You have interesting taste.  Have you ever listened to Charles Trenet (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uXNIrFStLa8)?

As for myself I was first a fan of New Wave in my youth, then punk, then 'alternative', nowadays I also love disco and the stranger old hippy music.. and obviously those of you who visit the 'what are you listening to at the moment' thread know I love to explore non-Anglo-Saxon pop, rock, and jazz.. 

(to be honest I'm not sure I have the names of genres just right)

Completely ignorant of music at one point in my life.  Not any longer.:D

I actually got into rock when I watched Wrestling; it introduced me to rock songs I wouldn't normally have heard on lite rock radio.:P

Anyways, I was then exposed to post-grunge bands and the sort; not exactly great artists, but still good nonetheless.  Then, I was exposed to Lostprophets and via that, alternative rock.  Around this time, I also bought Rock Band and was amazed at the great songs on it that I hadn't even heard of.

Moving on with my newfound liking of alternative rock, I moved through several bands, Fuel, Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Rise Against, the Offspring, and the list goes on and on.  Soon afterwards, I started to re-listen to the Beatles (from my younger years, I was aware of them but didn't really get into them later), and I loved their songs and delved a bit into classic rock.

Then, through a friend's recommendation, I listened to The Killers, Radiohead, then Muse, fascinated by the strange type of songs they put out.  Soon after, I heard "Happiness is a Warm Gun".  I loved the proto-prog structure it had and went with that, listening to Pink Floyd, Yes, Genesis, and Porcupine Tree (which became an instant favourite of mine).

Now, I write songs and am trying to form a band with my friend.  I play rhythm guitar and in charge of lyrics.  I'm more prog/alternative-leaning, while the other is more thrash/metal-leaning.

Oh, and when I discovered LPs, I was stoked and couldn't get enough.:D

Current tastes include Alternative, Prog, Classic, Punk, Jazz (smooth and normal), some Pop, some Hip-Hop (this is pretty much Gorillaz and De La Soul territory).

Nevertheless it all comes down to preference.  Honestly, if Kurt had lived and if they continued going the direction they were going, they would be regarded a lot more highly by the elitists.  And honestly, most of the time the only reason elitists hate is because the band is mainstream.:P

And I still prefer Nirvana to the other three.  About a Girl FTW.

Well, if you look at where the other grunge bands have gone, I guess it becomes more clear where they would have headed. Pearl Jam these days are far more general alternative rock, and I'd say their last grunge album was Vitalogy. Soundgarden are far more metal than they used to be too. Alice in Chains I haven't really heard much of the stuff done recently in their new incarnation, but I doubt they'll ever quite match up to Layne Staley's AiC just because it was pure genius and grunge music at its rawest.

Nirvana certainly weren't mainstream, mind you. No band which did songs like tourette's and Territorial Pissings could be considered mainstream :P

Tell that to the elitists.  At the time though, that was the in-thing to listen to.  I'm sad that we can't live through that kind of era now.

Plus I've never really considered Soundgarden grunge.  I always tough that were called Grunge just because they were associated with the Seattle Scene.  They're pretty much just metal.

Plus, grunge as a genre doesn't really exist, does it?  It's more of a fashion/way of performance.

no, I actually have an electric guitar. :P But I was also born an opera baby so to me music has to flow and be smooth for me to think it is music. Also metal physically hurts my head.

As for Davis being 'boring' I love that. I am quite tired of the bust hustle of the city. I have always loved living in rural areas. I have preferred it to the city. But the suburbs is a good compromise if i ever have to.

Ah, all in upbringing I guess.  Metal used to give me headaches, but I warmed up to it by listening to songs that became heavier and heavier.

Well you've lived in SF for your life, I've lived in the East Bay Suburbs.  It bores me.  I mean, it's interesting from time to time, but other than the weekend getaway, I really can't see myself living in a rural area.  Although it has always made me wonder as to what would've happened if I grew up in such an environment.

But you haven't stayed in one place?  Not surprising that you'd prefer rural.

Honestly though, Davis isn't that rural....it's just quiet.  It reminds me of those "perfect" old towns that end up in those horror films.

But doesn't being in a small town usually filled with old retirees depress you?  Even a little?
No it would be great since I just got my dog therapy license. so a lot of business and they all probably know a lot of opera. :) plus old people are easier to hang with then young.

Then there is anything in between. I really love any kind of song as long as it is not a) boring and it over 5 min generally. If it is over 5min I have to be doing something. B) it can not, CAN NOT be metal.

A - I have a 47 minute long song on my iTunes :P
B - Define metal :)
A- if you play that don't expect me to be awake. :P
B- Things Pit likes, for example Metallica, etc. yuck!

So, thrash?  Or just loud, headbanging music?
Yes, both.

Berkeley hates you now.:P

HAHAHA i don't like them either. They took my ex. they cant be that great. UC Davis all the way. ;)

Meh, Davis bores me.  The surrounding area is too....quiet.  But my aunt is a professor there so I guess I have to like it a little.


well it doesn't matter what it 'is' it should make me ears bleed and me cry for how horrid it is. who called this music anyways? My boss says it is a joke. and then people who take the joke seriously are not getting that it is a joke.

Geez, that's a lot of anger for some music.  Did something happen when you were little?  Were you traumatized by an electric guitar?:P
no, I actually have an electric guitar. :P But I was also born an opera baby so to me music has to flow and be smooth for me to think it is music. Also metal physically hurts my head.

As for Davis being 'boring' I love that. I am quite tired of the bust hustle of the city. I have always loved living in rural areas. I have preferred it to the city. But the suburbs is a good compromise if i ever have to.

Ah, all in upbringing I guess.  Metal used to give me headaches, but I warmed up to it by listening to songs that became heavier and heavier.

Well you've lived in SF for your life, I've lived in the East Bay Suburbs.  It bores me.  I mean, it's interesting from time to time, but other than the weekend getaway, I really can't see myself living in a rural area.  Although it has always made me wonder as to what would've happened if I grew up in such an environment.
wow. that was smart. never thought of that before.

and no i have moved most of my life. i have done the whole city, suburbs and rural.

     That's what I did too (listening to metal, not moving :P). I remember that after I started listening to Metallica, I wanted to listen to other thrash metal bands, so I checked out Angel Of Death by Slayer. Needless to say, my ears were quickly routed by the intense sonic assault. I decided to try something else & checked out Skeletons Of Society, which I found quite listenable. Over time, I was then able to get into their heavier songs, as well as heavier bands.

It also helps if you've heard heavier stuff already.  I heard Master of Puppets and Dream Theatre before I listened to No Leaf Clover, so it wasn't such a big deal.

Opeth though....hard to get past the Death Metal voice.

True.  Well I wish you the best with your business.  And hopefully you'll learn to listen to metal music and be able to live in a city.:P

     Only prog metal band I really like is Mastodon. Even then, it took me months to be able to enjoy Leviathan or Blood Mountain. On the other hand, I liked Crack The Skye from the first time I heard it, though some of the songs on that album annoy the hell out of me.

     I checked out Fear Of A Blank Planet (the first 1:45, at least, since my computer is slow). I wouldn't consider it metal at all, though it's pretty good as far as prog rock goes. My ideal rock band would sound like AC/DC, but have the progressive song structures of early Queen (though I suppose that would inevitably be categorized as progressive metal). :P

Stuff I've Discovered - 2:

I've been a NIN fan for quite a while, but I only bought the Ghosts I-IV album today. I'd never really heard much dark ambient music before, but it's actually very good - as Robert Christgau put it, 'mental wallpaper'. Like a soundtrack to a movie or a template for a typical Nine Inch Nails album. Apparently Reznor is planning as second Ghosts album so that shall be fun. :)

(some random thoughts on the previously talked about grunge and such)

It's probably been 10....15 years since I've heard Temple of the Dog....good stuff.  A little....."down" for my tastes, but getting the best parts of Soundgarden (except Thayil) and the best parts of Pearl Jam and putting them together to make a "grunge" album with a soul was a great idea.

Soundgarden isn't really grunge.  They are much more of a metal band.

Same thing with Pearl Jam....not so much metal mind you...more like a heavy "alternative" sound (whatever that means) like Mecha suggested.

Grunge was just a name for Seattle punk....at least that's how I came to read it.  Sure, Nirvana and Black Flag don't have a lot in common, but probably more in common than Nirvana and REM.  Or Black Flag and Metalica.

Punk (or in this case grunge) as a popular genre can never last because part of it's "charm" is that it goes against the mainstream by default.  Exactly like hippies...which is maybe why punks and hippies hate each other....by default.

Metal is like highschool wrestling, boring and a little gay even though they try really hard to not be either of those.

99% of country music is as bad as 99% of "pop" music.  Also both are boring and a little gay.

And no, I don't think all music I don't like is boring and/or a little gay.  I'm not a fan of Jazz, but I don't find it boring or gay.  Same is true of classic country, R&B, opera and about 50% of hiphop.

Most prog rock and folk music is though.

And I actually like a little metal, prog and folk.  Metal was all I listened to in highschool.  Well, some classic rock as well.  Boston and Gwar (probably banned in Boston) were both huge influences on me.  Aerosmith was my favorite band.  I was in my 20s when I found punk and quit the metal.  I still listen to the heavy stuff from time to time, but it's all about the punk now-a-days.  It's still fast...still hard...just a lot less big stupid hair and big stupid guitars and singing like Cookie Monster a lot more comedy, politics and generally more light hearted.  Oh and and a few girls go to the concerts.

Indeed, Absolution remains my favorite as well. The Resistance is just as good, though depending on my mood I favor the first half or second. Exogenesis is amazing, though I will admit it's a bit underwhelming live. They need an Orchestra there for it, in it's place they just use a barrage of synths. Just doesn't work as well.

Good point.  I hope that when they make a live dvd, they'll have an orchestra with them.  Maybe they can do something similar to Metallica's S&M.:)

Black Holes and Revelations is also a good album.  I just don't get why people hate Supermassive Black Hole so much (ok sure, it's been overhyped and used in Twilight, but it's still a good dance song).

Black Holes and Revelations is also a good album.  I just don't get why people hate Supermassive Black Hole so much (ok sure, it's been overhyped and used in Twilight, but it's still a good dance song).

It all has to do with Twilight. I'm not happy they have used their songs in the movies but whatever...they already have a following over the years of producing great albums. I mean, I actually like Neutron Star Collision...its a fun song but incredibly tongue/cheek. Live, Supermassive Black Hole is a beast. NSC is less beastly, but still fun.

Metallica's S&M.

     That reminds me; I found S&M to be quite a dreadful album. I thought the orchestral arrangements ruined quite a few of their better songs (particularly Battery), the guitars were too quiet, & James Hetfield's vocals were terrible. The complete lack of songs from Kill 'Em All, such as The Four Horsemen or Seek And Destroy, is also quite troubling.

     But there were five posts in a row that had nothing to do with metal right before my last post. :P

     I like American Folk, particularly guys like Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs, & Arlo Guthrie. The music itself is pretty boring, but the way those guys have with words really appeals to me. If they were poets, I would still be a big fan of theirs. :)

     I do not have much experience with non-American folk, though I do have the album Santiago by the Irish folk band Chieftains, which is largely their take on Galician folk music, due to the historical tie between Ireland & Galicia. It's a pretty good album, particularly Pilgrimage To Santiago: Dum Paterfamilias / Ad Honorem, Galician Overture & Tears Of Stone. As a point of interest, those are also some of the least Latin-sounding songs on the album.

Folk's alright, I'm not too much into it though.  I find it boring to listen to though.  It's also hard for me to find out anything about foreign folk (or foreign anything in general).

Metallica's S&M.

     That reminds me; I found S&M to be quite a dreadful album.

I didn't think it was that bad.  Sure, the arrangements were a little ****ed up but overall it turned out to be a listenable product.  Human and No Leaf Clover (the two written for the specific concert) are actually pretty good imo.

     It wasn't horrible, I'll admit, but I didn't see any reason to listen to a messed-up live version of Battery or Master Of Puppets when one could listen to the studio versions of those songs. I suppose my complaints about S&M are emblematic of my more general distaste for live albums.

Wikipedia actually has a pretty good definition of progressive rock. 

Yes, early Genesis, King Crimson, Pink Floyd, ELP, Jethro Tull, Rush, Dream Theater, Porcupine Tree, Coheed And Cambria and to an extent Muse are considered progressive rock bands.  It's all artsy, conceptual, long-winded, and often very difficult to play. 

Basically everything the early punks hated.... which makes it great, of course.

Industrial isn't always lame dance music though.  I wouldn't consider NIN dance music lol.  And as for Prog vs. avant-garde, there's a bit of a weird, blurred distinction between them.  Where Prog has a set structure, avant-garde usually disavows that.  Although I have always considered the two to be pretty much the same thing considering they have the same purpose.

And don't go into that hell hole with the whole "Floyd isn't Prog" thing.  That only mucks everything further and the distinctions get more blurred.  Yes, they were technically Space Rock.  But classically Space Rock has been associated with Prog.

That is the new trend it seems. If you're in a pop punk band, you wear a grindcore band's shirt. If you're in a metalcore band, you wear a Smiths or some 90s indie rock band's shirt. If you're in a soft and poppy indie rock band, you wear the shirt of some hardcore emo band. If you're in a such an emo band, you wear a pop punk band's shirt.

Electronic rock?

Which is essentially Industrial. :| ....in a sense.



For the record, Half Light II (No Celebration) by Arcade Fire is my favorite song at the moment. The Suburbs is really hit and miss, the first half of the album kinda drags but they have really awesome and random songs in the 2nd half.

This is actually not that big of an issue.  Imo, at least they tried something different with St. Anger while Death Magnetic was more or less back to basics.

That seems to happen to groups that have been around for a while.  The quality of their music tends to decay.  That is, if they started out with good music.  Lady GaGa and other pop stars will always have bad music, because their music has never been good.

I think major record labels have something to do with it.

And yeah sure, groups that age tend to lose their artistic spirit as we've seen before, groups that age tend to turn more and more to pop.

     Yeah, most bands age poorly. I'm trying to think of older bands that have released an album recently that really outclassed the rest of their discography. Some have had pretty good recent albums, but I don't know of any that have really matched the best of their older material.

I would say that there are almost no bands that have aged over the years that have kept up to a high level of artistic quality (though the Foo Fighters, being 15 years old came out with a pretty damn good album in 07).  A lot of bands seemed to make comebacks around the late 00s though.

Nevertheless, of bands that stayed and aged (however they've broken up) and reached their artistic high point is probably the Beatles (mainly because they quit at their peak).  While other bands start artistic and turn to pop, the Beatles are the archetypal opposite of that (pop to, from what I could gather on Abbey Road and the White Album, a more complex, heavier, prog-like sound)

     Yeah, it seems like rock bands usually either possess a coherent artistic vision from the start or they never possess one. Jazz groups seem to follow the opposite tack & become more experimental over time. There is strong stigma against this in metal, & you see humorous things, like Megadeth becoming more pop over the course of the 1990s & then returning to an older style in the early 2000s.

I think it's justified, certainly. Metallica, Megadeth, Testament, Anthrax, Cryptopsy, all turned into commercial oriented bands, and the music definitely suffered.

On the other hand, a band like Gorguts cemented their legacy by going into a completely different direction, and rupturing eardrums by going more extreme than any death metal act before.

     Well I don't think anybody ever innovated by becoming more commercially-oriented. The wider listening public prefers sounds & structures that are familiar. Doing the same old stuff as everyone else may get you more admirers, but it won't influence anyone. Metallica is much more popular than Slayer, but Slayer has probably had a far bigger impact on other metal bands.

     But my point is that bands that go pop have less capacity to influence others because they aren't doing much that is different from anyone else (of course they might have innovated plenty prior to going pop; it really depends on the band).

In Utero is the better album compared to Nevermind, but Definitely Maybe is about at equal quality to (What's the Story) Morning Glory.  Though I prefer Stop the Clocks, since it's a compilation of their best songs (Acquiesce and Slide Away:D).  Though I was kind of pissed that they didn't think of including Let There Be Love or Let It Roll until the Japanese special edition came out.

Yeah, they played almost 30 songs. I mean, most of their songs are pretty short but it was still a lot. They did most of Surfer Rosa and Doolittle. I actually have a CD of the show. I would definitely try to catch them if they end up going out again.

Asif. The Music megathread should DIAF. Sure, most people have cruddy taste in music, but without discussing random crap like this (has anyone who has functioning ears actually ever listened to this band?) there's not much left going on in OT but American sports and movies. If we can get rid of around 1/3rd of discussion into a thread that doesn't allow you to filter out the random BRTD gunk, why not have a sports megathread, a gaming megathread, a movies megathread and a wankathon megathread and be done with it?

Say no to megathreads, people, and retain your liberty.

Daydream Nation is a truly brilliant album, so is Sister, so is Dirty (though different, perhaps the most accessible), so is Washing Machine, so is A Thousand Leaves.

I turned on the radio as I was driving home last night and we ran into some really bad folk! It was so bad I adored it! :) I wouldn't recommend it for you folks. :P

     Moldy Peaches? :P
I doubt it. I am not sure who it was. It seemed like a local station. I would so blast that station in my car. hehehe

     What station?
it was like 88.8 twas weird. But santi you wont get it since it was near CSUMB.

     Ah, yes. That would be a problem.
you know you should hop in your car and drive down 1 and try to see if you can find it. It was near a Burger King. :P

     I don't even listen to the radio, really. :P
You are so primitive that you don't listen to the radio or you don't know what it is?

     I know what it is. But it killed my interest in rock, & I don't want it to kill my interest in another genre. :P
you should in metal since it sucks.

     Not a chance. It would probably kill my interest in country or folk. :P

     It's cool. I'm not listening to the radio, so I will still love country. :)

Based on last.fm, my most played track is Motörhead – Bomber at 160 plays. I'm guessing Edge of Sanity - Crimson is the longest at 40:00 on the dot, and Napalm Death - You Suffer is surely the shortest at 0:01. Album with most tracks is The Gerogerigegege - Yellow Trash Bazooka at 80.

Picked up a copy of Talking Heads' 1984 live album Stop Making Sense the other day for the slender cost of 8 bucks. I knew it was going to be good, but it exceeded my expectations. My God it was great. In particular the acustic cover of Psycho Killer as well as the live versions of Heaven, Once in a Lifetime and This Must Be the Place. It's too bad afterward they became quite commercial.

I’m happy to finally announce the re-issue of the first Nine Inch Nails record “Pretty Hate Machine,” releasing worldwide 11/22. UMe and Bicycle Music Group managed to locate the original mixes, so I went in the studio with Tom Baker and remastered it for a grealy improved sonic experience. In addition, Rob reinterpreted Gary Talpas’ original cover to make for a fresh new package.

It’s been an interesting trip watching the fate of this record float from one set of hands to another (a long and depressing story) but it’s finally wound up in friendly territory, allowing us to polish it up a bit and present it to you now. We had fun revisiting this old friend, hope you enjoy.

Cleanse, Fold and Manipulate
The Process
Bites
Mythmaker
Mind: The Perpetual Intercourse
The Greater Wrong of the Right

I don't generally take offense to people's lists because, you know, it's your own thing, but there's no way in hell Mythmaker is better than Mind, or Cleanse, Fold better than The Process. It makes my mind esssplode.

(Haven't heard Back & Forth yet, or Remix Dys Temper... that's supposed to be sh-t though, so that will be enjoyable :P )

Those Brap collections are really for the most diehard of fans. Some b-sides, outtakes, live stuff, remixes, and what not. If you're really into them, I think you should check them out. The remix thing isn't too bad. Mark Walk did a great job, out of a few of the better tracks on there.

Ministry ranked best to worst:
Psalm 69
Land of Rape and Honey
The Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste
Filth Pig
Twitch

(Haven't heard the rest yet)

I think Al Jourgensen's most creative peak (that's not embarassing) is Twitch. The Land of Rape and Honey, like most of his other albums, suffer from being spotty. It's Big Black with samples, essentially, and some really good bass playing on the part of Paul Barker. Post Filth Pig is pretty much garbage, except "Animositisomina". It's his last good hurrah, and definitely noise rock, not big dumb metal like the rest of his stuff.

My rank, essentially comes down to:

Twitch
Animositisomina
Land of Rape and Honey
The Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste tied with Psalm 69
.
.
.
.
.
.
Filth Pig
Dark Side of the Spoon
With Sympathy
Houses of the Molé
Rio Grande Blood
The Last Sucker
Cover Up

Just previewed Alter Bridge's AB III (been waiting for this one all year), and I have to say, it's pretty damn good.  Here's my favourite track: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wc0xQStQxfc

A Porcupine Tree/Alter Bridge concert would mean that I can die happy.:D

Well, his voice is absolutely shot at this point but other than that he and his band are usually great.

If you buy Queen and you have a turntable, get it on vinyl, preferably coloured vinyl.  Trust me, it's worth the extra cost...my A Night at the Opera is one of my most cherished possessions and plays wonderfully.  Listening to Bohemian Rhapsody on the warm feeling and crackle of vinyl is one of my favourite things to do.

Ive only recently discovered Abbey Road (don't judge me....). I never was much of a Beatles fan, up until my friend bought the album and we both sat down and listened to it. It's quite amazing I will admit. Mind you though, I was quite under the influence while listening.

The album isn't all that bad, it's just really odd and out there. It makes everything they've made before this album kinda irrelevant. I feel like if they made albums like this instead of Bullets or TBP, they'd be more successful. Na Na Na is a crap song though.

     Huh, that's interesting. Abbey Road is by far my favorite of those three albums, possibly because it's the most even in song quality (in my estimation) & the most "earthy". Revolver has some great songs, but the majority I find too "airy". Sgt. Pepper is a bit more "earthy" in its sound than Revolver, but it comes off to me as a bit slapdash.

Abbey Road I think doesn't get the credit it should.  It is probably the best of the three later albums (barring Let it Be), and also pretty damn cohesive.  The quality of each song...leading up to the finale Abbey Road Medley is simply great.

I'm kind of sad the Beatles became so disjointed, because as seen by their later work (especially Happiness is a Warm Gun and the Abbey Road Medley), they started to dabble into what would become Prog rock - and a Beatles driven prog album would've kicked ass.:D

     Slightly bizarre. They're not any more distorted than the next band & generally lack heaviness. They do sound somewhat like a sped-up Black Sabbath, I suppose. The categorization has definite problems, though, like listing Necrophiliac as death metal.

Why is punk, hardcore punk and crust there? Are they seriously arguing that HUSKER DU is metal? lolz

They're included as influences, just like hard rock, psychedelic, blues rock, grunge etc. And when I clicked on post-rock, I had another eargasm because Good Morning Captain was there. Bliss.

LOL. That is sooooooooooooooooooooo not metal. It's not even really post-rock either for that matter.

Well no, it's an 'influence' on metal. I think it's post-rock if we're using the strict definition, but I think of it as math rock

Saw these guys open for the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion yesterday.

Live, they were like nothing I'd ever heard but I would have known what to label the style - "Cajunpunk". (Listening to the stuff on here right now, and the first track anyhow sounds a lot less punk-y than they did live.)

No I am not. Her songs are catchy. If you don't think that. So be it. But she manages to stay in the top ranks. And I do like her style. It takes some serious creativity to dress like that. Not saying I would. If I did I bet I would be dumped but none the less she has gotton far with good reason.

If you enjoy Dream Theater?  I would go with In Absentia, Fear of a Blank Planet or The Incident.

Giving what Porcupine Tree album to start with is all dependent on the listener's tastes - if it's metal, you start with the later work, if it's alternative rock or psychedelic, you start with the earlier.

     I generally prefer the former since I regard greater technicality as a positive attribute for music. My issue is that the term "classic rock" is very vague & obfuscates what exactly you mean, though qualifying it with pretentious immediately makes me think of concept albums & progressive rock.

I'd also take the latter 90% of the time, but I do like me some haughty old rock. Actually, I just listened to ELP's Tarkus, which has to be one of the most masturbatory albums of all time. I don't mean instrumentally, either, just the entire concept of it. "This armadillo tank is a metaphor for war, suffering and control or somethin' like that. Shut up, have some keyboards a-bloopdeep a-doopdoop. This sure is progressive stuff, dude!!"

That sounds like an insult, but it really is endearing to hear just how proud they are to reside in progressive rock stereotype, and musically it's solid as any. Not one of my favorites or anything, but a good listen.

Since I have nothing else to do with my sig, I'm gonna do an Album of the Week thing. :D  First one up is the fourth-wave Prog classic, Stupid Dream.  With it's psychedelic melodies and plain musical energy, this album is great if you're looking for a modern Prog album.

I got an iPod for Christmas, so I've been downloading, organizing, and putting CD's on my computer. I've downloaded nearly an album's worth of Blue Oyster CUlt stuff, along with Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd. The rest of the stuff is pretty much already mine. I can't seem to find a good version of "Paranoid" by Black Sabbath. The live one I found sucked, and I don't want a version with Dio.

I couldn't stand The Hazards of Love (Jethro Tull already did Thick as a Brick, and I didn't like it then either), so I'm glad that this one was less "clever". It's got some pretty good songs (Calamity Song, Rox in the Box, and Down by the Water are probably my favorites) but two of the songs are some of the worst things the Decemberists have done (Rise to Me and All Arise!). I'd probably give it about a 7/10.

I may head down to Bonnaroo if they can come up with a solid lineup. It was really bad last year though, so I'm not hopeful.

Coachella's lineup is decent this year but I already saw Arcade Fire pretty recently and they were the best part of it. Plus it sold out already.

I think it's safe to assume most people don't take the Grammy's seriously.

Probably, most of what matters has already been announced anyways.

I don't get how they won "album of year" and lost ''alternative album of the year" at the same time. Amusingly they lost that one to The Black Keys, who are basically a straight up blues-rock band.

The definition of "alternative" has been muddled to where it's near a pen smudge on a paper.  I.E. The White Stripes

Post by: minionofmidas - supplemental forum account on February 21, 2011, 09:27:33 am
Fell in love with these song lyrics. (Song is not that great... suppose it's good by Electropunk standards.) "Bilder mit Katze" by Frittenbude.
Felt the need to try my hands at translating.

It was a warm night
You remember it
Like it was yesterday
You were a little high
And had been drinking before
Vodka with your friends
You roamed through the night
Snuck in at nine
You were the biggest fans of Torsun and the boys
Stood in the front row, knew really all the songs
And the opening band was good too
But what you liked even more
Was that one girl
She was special, she had style

You talked to her, you said "Hey Cat
I've never seen you before"
"Hey Tomcat I'm here on account of Bratze"
She thought the lyrics were great and the two guys were funny
You wanted to buy her a drink but only had a fifty
That was supposed to last you through the next twenty days
You got her a drink
But she said "Shame.
I'd so love to have that shirt that Lars is selling over there
The black and yellow one, the pretty Audiolith shirt"
But she said she was broke
Had spent her last money
To buy a ticket for today
You bought it for her you were her hero
Later you danced together til she went home
And you stayed behind with the guys, hanging out on the couch

[twice]
You buy the woman you love
A shirt by Audiolith
Which she wears all the time
Because there's nothing out there
Like that shirt by Audiolith
With the pretty large letters

Right the next morning
You were very nervous
You called her and almost put the phone right down
Because her father was on the line
But he was very friendly
Then you two talked for a long time
And noticed there's a lot of stuff
That you have in common
You soon met for a date
You were a couple straight away
And both open for everything
You went to every party and to a lot of shows
Protests, festivals, life was totally great

As long as it's Audiolith, you took in everything
And she always wore that shirt, she looked so great in it
You rode by train a lot
There was always a lot of stuff happening
Once you met Frittenbude on the local train
They invited you, took you to their gig
You danced through the night, didn't go home at all
So it went for a few years
You loved each other a lot
And were injured all the more when suddenly nothing was right anymore
And even the favorite shirt
Was suddenly gone
There were a lot of tears
Your love was like two swans or at least something like that
Cause you were so badly hurt
You didn't want to see her at all anymore
You stayed behind
And she had to go

[female voice, spoken]
"Hi Tomcat it's me
Yeah well, you never answer the phone
I was just going to tell you I'm going to move to Berlin, going to fashion school
Already found a flat at the Conti
Maybe we'll hear from each other, bye"

[twice]
The shirt by Audiolith
Was like the woman you loved
Suddenly gone and you
Alone at home all that remained
For you were all those Audiolith songs
And pictures with Cat

Years passed
You got ever older
Girls came, stayed, left, flowers wilted
You saved some money, bought a new couch
Took the old one apart and what did you find
In its deepest recess
You didn't believe it
There's this shirt
That one shirt by Audiolith
You think back to the times of your youth
Those days were great, just the two of you and the music

You turn on the pc
You enter her name
Found her right away in some social network how can it be
Is that really her? No?
You're suddenly very confused
You take a picture of the shirt not of you
And send it to her



Audiolith is a Hamburg-based indie label. All the bands namedropped (including themselves) are on that label, and Lars is the guy who runs it. There's a logical flaw though - sounds like quite a few years have passed since, and they were still in their teens when they were together. Her giving him a landline phone number would also date their getting together back into the nineties - when neither Audiolith nor any of the bands namedropped existed yet. Ahem. But maybe that's intentional.



German original
Es war ne laue Nacht
du weißt es noch genau
als ob es gestern war
du warst ein bischen drauf
und hattest vorgetrunken
vodka mit deinen Freunden
seit durch die Nacht gestreunt
um neun habt ihr euch reingeschlichen
ihr ward die größten Fans von Torsun und den Jungs
und in der 1. reihe kantet wirklich alle Songs
doch auch die Vorband taugte
was dir noch mehr gefiel
war dieses Mädchen da
sie war besonders, hatte Stil

du hast sie angesprochen sagtest neckisch: „ Ey Katze!
hab dich noch nie gesehen
„Ey Kater bin da wegen Bratze!
sie fänd die Texte toll und die zwei Typen lustig
wolltest ihr was spendieren aber hattest dann nur den Fuffy
der reichen sollte für die nächsten 20 Tage
hast ihr nen Drink geholt
aber sie sagte „schade
ich hätt so gern das Shirt, dass es da bei Lars zu kaufen gibt
das schwarz gelbe da, das schöne shirt von audiolith!
doch sie sei leider pleite
hätt von ihrem letzten Geld
die Karte heut gekauft
da hast du es geholt du warst ihr Held
ihr habt dann noch getanzt bis sie nach Hause ging
und du zurück bliebst mit den Jungs, die auf der Couch rumhingen

Du kaufst der Frau die du liebst,
ein Shirt von Audiolith
das sie auch laufend anzieht,
weil es da draußen nichts gibt
wie dieses Shirt von Audiolith
mit den schönen großen Buchstaben

Du kaufst der Frau die du liebst,
ein Shirt von Audiolith
das sie auch laufend anzieht,
weil es da draußen nichts gibt
wie dieses Shirt von Audiolith
mit den schönen großen Buchstaben

am nächsten Tag schon morgens
warst du sehr aufgeregt
du hast sie angerufen und fast wieder aufgelegt
weil erst ihr Vater dran war
doch der war äußerst freundlich
dann habt ihr lang geredet
und gemerkt das da so zeug ist
das ihr gemeinsam habt
ihr habt euch bald getroffen
ihr wart sofort ein Paar
und beide auch für alles offen
ihr gingt auf jede Party und auf viele Konzerte
Demos oder Festivals das Leben war die oberhärte

Hauptsache Audiolith, habt alles abgefeiert
und sie trug immer dieses Shirt es stand ihr ausgezeichnet
Ihr seid viel Zug gefahren
immer war richtig Trubel
und einmal traft ihr in der Regionalbahn Frittenbude
sie haben euch eingeladen, mit aufs Konzert genommen
habt die Nacht durchgetanzt, seid einfach nicht nach Haus gekommen
so ging es ein paar Jahre
ihr habt euch sehr geliebt
und umso mehr verletzt wenn's plötzlich einfach nichts mehr gibt
und auch das Lieblingsshirt
es war aufeinmal weg
es wurde tränenreich
eure liebe war wie zwei schwäne oder zumindest ähnlich
weil du extrem verletzt warst
wolltest du sie nicht mehr sehen
du bist geblieben
und sie musste gehen

„Hi Kater ich bin's
naja du gehst ja nie ans Telefon
ich wollte dir bloß sagen, dass ich jetzt nach Berlin gehe auf die Modeschule
ich hab auch schon ne Wohnung im Conti
vielleicht hört man sich ja ciaoi

das Shirt von Audiolith
war wie die Frau die du liebst
plötzlich verschwunden und du
allein zu Hause es blieb
dir nichts als pausenlos diese Audiolithlieder
und Bilder mit Katze

das Shirt von Audiolith
war wie die Frau die du liebst
plötzlich verschwunden und du
allein zu hause es blieb
dir nichts als pausenlos diese Audiolithlieder
und Bilder mit Katze

Die Jahre ging ins Land
du wurdest immer älter
die Mädels kamen, blieben, gingen Blumen wurden welker
hast etwas Geld gespart, für eine neue Couch
die alte dann zerlegt und was tauchte da plötzlich auf
ganz hinten drin im Eck
hast nicht geglaubt
es liegt da dieses Shirt
das eine Shirt von Audiolith
du denkst zurück an die Momente deiner Jugend
die zeit war super nur ihr beide und die Musik

du wirfst die Mühle an
tippst ihren Namen ein
hast sie dann gleich gefunden in nem Netzwerk kann das sein
das ist sie wirklich nein
bist plötzlich sehr verwirrt
machst ein Foto von dem Shirt nicht von dir
und schickst es ihr

I got back from a Crystal Castles show at Terminal 5 a few hours ago. Pretty interesting. I may write a short reaction later.

I wonder if FallenMorgan has ever actually gone to one? Probably not, I guess.


Title: Re: Music Megathread
Post by: Eraserhead on March 19, 2011, 08:08:42 pm
So basically Crystal Castles were a lot of fun live although I did have a few problems with the show overall. Firstly, the two opening acts SUCKED. They just seemed like pretty generic DJs. Maybe if I was high or drunk I could have got some enjoyment out of their sets but I was 100% sober at this show. I really wish I showed up at the venue a lot later than I did. This is also true because CC took forever to come out on stage. There was literally almost an hour between the last opener and their set.

So then they finally come out and Alice Glass is on crutches because she recently broke her ankle and was apparently told by a doctor not to even play these shows. Yet she still managed to hop around the stage like a maniac and actually crowd surfed at a few points during the show. I gotta give her some points for that. I also thought it was really cool how Ethan Kath played guitar, keyboards and sang during parts of the show in addition to the electronic mumbo jumbo... made it feel more like a real band. The drummer was good too.

I did think it was kind of odd how they ran through most of their well known songs in like the first 20 minutes of the show. Most of the stuff sounded really good but their second encore, which was a reworked version of the originally awesome "Untrust Us", didn't really work for me. It would have been nice if they played a little longer too... their set was only about 70 minutes (not much longer than the gap between them and the second opener). Overall, still a good show.

It would have been nice if they played a little longer too... their set was only about 70 minutes (not much longer than the gap between them and the second opener). Overall, still a good show.

Whoa whoa, what? 70 minutes? That's way longer than most sets I've ever seen. I think the longest I've ever seen was this post-rock band that might've approached 90 minutes. I remember reading about this hardcore band that played for three hours at their last show and apparently set up some sort of record.

Paul McCartney plays shows that are nearly 3 hours long all the time and he's 68 years old. Bruce Springsteen does 3 hours in his sleep. Hell, my own band has played a couple of shows that were that long. This isn't a big deal for bands that don't spend the entire set screaming their lungs out and trying to injure themselves.

Post by: Cath on April 14, 2011, 06:00:22 pm
two of my friends are in a band called "Theory of the Fallen". While I wasn't able to see them, they performed last night. While it was the type of music that BRTD's been trying to make me listen to, once I find a youtube video (apparently there are recordings of it made, amateurly), I'll provide a link. The reason they did screamo lyrics was because they had three weeks notice before performing and had only had their singer for a week and a half. Not knowing what to do, they said "F_ck it, let's do screamo". I'll see if there's a video up or anything.

EDIT: It seems there may be another band of the same name and I'll have to check with my two friends about the name and such.


Title: Re: Music Megathread

     Yeah, you're probably right about it sounding like Leviathan. Blood Mountain has higher-pitched melodies in general.

     From Crack The Skye, I liked The Czar, though it was rather repetitive for an 11-minute song. The Last Baron was good, but really needed to be heavier. The whole album sounded like they were trying to do Dark Side Of The Moon, which really isn't their style.

Does anyone here like Odd Future? They're apparently the Hot New Thing, but I haven't really been seeing the appeal. Mind you, I'm only tangentially aware of them courtesy of that time Steve Albini was on the same airport shuttle with hilarious results.

Yeah, I was a big fan of them last year but I've grown annoyed with the hype and how they've become popular among the crowd I hate the most so I can't really consider myself a fan even if I enjoy the music and lyrical schemes.

Setlist:

Shut Me Up
Issues
1989
Clarissa
Masturbates
Prescription
Planet of The Apes
Cocaine and Toupees
Tornado
Never Wanted To Dance
Dicks Are For My Friends
Capital P
Tight
Golden I

Bring The Pain
Mastermind

They also played a new song from the Tight re-issue and then a cover from The Left Rights.

Am I the only one who thinks Lil' Wayne can create great rap lyrics? I mean you have to admit he does make great lyrics. Sure he's going downhill a bit but he still makes great music.

Great Lil' Wayne lyrics:
Quote
Better keep paying me cuz you don't want my problems/I be wildin' like Capital One, what is in your wallet?

Weezy F. Baby and the F is for Phenomenal

I get paid by the letter like ABDCEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWZXYZZ TOP yes he rock

I see the blood in your eyes/I see the love in disguise/I see the pain hidden in your pride

Take away the football team, the basketball team/And all we got is me to represent New Orleans, s**t/No governor, no help from the mayor/Just a steady beating heart and a wish and a prayer

My head to the sky / My feet on the ground / My fingers to the judge if the money don't move / And I won't budge / Won't budge / No I won't budge

I fly harder than geese erection

I wanna f&k every girl in the world

I think you stand under me if you don’t understand me

Going through intense personal problems, the light finally came back on for me listening to Grizzly Bear and Arcade Fire. Yeah, I am one of those pretentious douchebags. My tastes are incredibly varied though, I'm just a man who needs his indie/electronica/art pop sometimes (whether LCD Soundsystem or Neutral Milk Hotel or the Fleet Foxes).

Steve Albini may be the best thing musically - if not the only good thing musically - to come out my university in the past thirty years. A shame 90% of the campus knows nothing about him!

I'm interested in knowing if those of you who have listened to a lot of music have one song that really stands above the rest. I admit that I don't have nearly as much experience listening to music as I would like, but the greatest rock song in my musical library would be this:

Television - Marquee Moon (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jlbunmCbTBA)

Good two year Music combo.

Last year we had:

Overkill's The Electric Age
Testament's Dark Roots of the Earth
Manowar's The Lord of Steel
Kreator's Phantom Antichrist
Talor Swift's Red

This year we have:

Megadeth's Super Collider
The Band Perry's Pioneer
Amon Amarth's new album

and probably more I can't think of right now.

I normally don't like Rush and I really don't know why, somehow they aggrevate me without really knowing why.

And there are other country albums that came out that were great too, couldn't really think of them offhand. I've been listening to more metal lately then country.

Thanks a lot, dawg. The other songs haven't been put on youtube so as to avoid copying of it and thus decreasing the market value of our recordings. However, they're available on our facebook page, "Through the Eye of Horus".

I don't really feel like creating another thread for this, so I'll just ask it here.  Do any of you think there's a good reason to buy or listen to vinyl records?  I know a lot of people think they sound better, but I've tried to compare it to digital, and I can't do it.  So if it doesn't sound better, then is there really any point in spending more money on that than you could for a digital download?

Let me put it like this - in theory, there should not be any difference. In practice, I have found my old vinyl records to sound warmer and also a bit more 'direct' than CDs, which may have to do with some inevitable information loss during digitising. If you compress the full digital signal into mp3 for download, you have further information loss.
Now, the first question is - do you realise and mind that information loss at all. There is probably no point in buying vinyl to play it on a cheap record player over cheap loudspeakers that aren't able to capture and transmit that subtle extra of information. You either do a full upgrading, or you just stick to downloads and a mp3 player, anything in-between does hardly make sense.
Secondly - the information loss comes with any digitising in the process. This means, there is also not much point in buying a digitally mastered song on vinyl. So, if you are mostly listening to music that has been recorded from the 1990s onwards, you may remain digital.
Thirdly, vinyl is not vinyl. My father used to work for PolyGram. He was a member of the research team that developed stereo, and also participated in the initial development of the Compact Disc, before moving into quality managing of their main record factory in Hannover. According to him, in the 1970s / 80s there was a sizable number of Americans who wanted to buy original Hannover record pressings  (sizeable enough to include regular shipment to the USA in their production planning system), even though PolyGram ("Deutsche Grammophon") operated record factories in the USA. He said they never managed to get the US plants up to the German standard.
Of course, my 1970s / 1980s vinyl collection is to a good part consisting of records that were pressed in Hannover (got them free of charge, and could always impress the other guys at school with having the hot stuff first). They sound  better than CDs. If US pressings do as well - I don't know ...

In the good old "Rockpalast" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rockpalast) tradition, German TV has fully covered this year's Rock am Ring  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rock_am_Ring_and_Rock_im_Park) festival, and most performances are available on You Tube.

The international line-up:
Papa Roach (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g5C2jgyVq2c) - the crowd obviously loves them
Bullet for my Valentine (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zw3YnI35W-c) ..and them as well.
Stone Sour (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zs9D1zcqcaI) - Band and audience have a lot of fun together
30 Seconds to Mars (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h6uE73qWvj0) - Good concert, but the sound could sometimes be better..
Imagine Dragons (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5hS3r0fAfZM) - unfortunately just an extract, would have liked to see more
Stereophonics (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lyDPD4aHcHAl) - Solid performance
Limp Bizkit (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S6sayapYDwo) - a lot of medleys and covers, surprisingly
Green Day (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g30xFZVJj40) - they have grown quite old, as have Bad Religion (http://rock am ring bad religion)
The Killers (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=026KokptLpg) - never one of my favourites, but for completeness sake
Volbeat (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4uN2yx7d1i4) - Danish Metal

And from the German line-up:
Kraftklub (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2842tlqGZUU) If they hadn't already been among my favourites, they would have definitely become so after this amazing performance. Check out from 32:00  to see what I mean..
Tocotronic (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PDy1VCB8c0I) - some bands never get mainstream
Selig (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ERtoH91VQVY) - and more "Hamburger Schule". Solid performance.
The BossHoss (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=clCVyc0iKa8) - Berlin Cowboys, with their quite special humour
Cro (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hYg5T8Dq_rM) - playing at home (he's from the region). The gender bias is pretty obvious..
Fettes Brot (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WKxUdJLFTqA) - Quite tragic to watch one of the most innovative bands of the nineties becoming a parody of themselves. But the audience still loves them..
Sportfreunde Stiller (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2LBptDXdq20) - I have always been ambivalent about them, and the crappy sound does not really help

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RJcCzWcgPsY (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RJcCzWcgPsY)

And one of the best live shows I have ever seen ...

Though their show was still a bit better, for special reasons
(http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-QvzcsteG1uM/UTJcSBTX1AI/AAAAAAAAQz8/s8SNZiTO3pM/s320/Fehlfarben-Geschichte-wird-gemacht-Medienfakes.jpg)

The lead singer left the stage completely drunk in the middle of the show, and the guitarist
started this song:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KkodRo5gTQk
"When reality surpasses you, you have no friends, not even alcohol"
The singer returned, and they finished the show with an incredible tension on stage.

Sadly I am all too aware of these bands, but Dominus was a bog standard death metal act in no way related to national socialist black metal. That is entirely separate movement within metal, much in the same way that RAC (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rock_Against_Communism) and other white power punk styles are unrelated to and scorned by the majority of punk/hardcore groups. In fact, most of the bands on that list are RAC groups that have nothing to do with metal.

I understand your concern, but rest assured this nationalist white power nonsense is rejected by a huge majority of metalheads.

Tonight was the 9th Bundesvision Song Contest (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bundesvision_Song_Contest). Usually a good opportunity to spot fresh bands and trends, this year's contest was quite a disappointment - a mix of traditional rock ballads, Neue Deutsche Welle revival, and German HipHop.

Winner was Bosse for Lower Saxony. "So oder so (http://tvtotal.prosieben.de/tvtotal/videos/player/index.html?contentId=144399&initialTab=related)" is a nice song with good text. In the absence of anything spectacular, solid craftsmanship did the job.

Second-placed Johannes Oerding (Hamburg) represented the rock ballad faction with "Nichts geht mehr (http://www.frequency.com/video/johannes-oerding-nichts-geht-mehr/121484078/-/5-14570l)"

Favourite YouTube HipHop hero MCFitti from Berlin only came in third with "Fitti mit'm Bart (http://tvtotal.prosieben.de/tvtotal/videos/player/index.html?contentId=144382&initialTab=related)"

Place four went to Keule from Brandenburg with their NDW retro song "Ja Genau (http://tvtotal.prosieben.de/tvtotal/videos/player/index.html?contentId=144376&initialTab=related)".  ("taxes down, jobs up, nobody intends to build a wall - yes, of course..." plus a gay marriage kiss in the end )

Interestingly, East German entries tended to have political texts: MeckPomm- "I turn terrorist", Saxony -"I don't need / can't get a flat (the city is my home)", while songs from the West were all about dance & fun or disappointed love.

Musically most interesting was Adolar (Saxony-Anhalt) with their Russian Folk- Heavy Metal crossover "Hallelujah (http://tvtotal.prosieben.de/tvtotal/videos/player/index.html?contentId=144374&initialTab=related)".

All entries are available at http://tvtotal.prosieben.de/tvtotal/specials/bundesvision-song-contest/

Spoon's newest They Want My Soul is... pretty good.  A little disappointing given the heights I know they're capable of (Gimme Fiction and Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga are both firmly in my top 10 albums all-time), but it's good to have them back, and it's better than 2010's Transference at least.  Honestly, I think the problem is that in some ways it's a little too slick and polished and overproduced, which is the exact opposite of Transference, which felt like an album of incomplete demos.  Pendulum, swinging, etc.

Hopefully they hit that happy medium again next time.

For my taste, the opener "Rent I Pay" and the menacing "Knock Knock Knock" are the best cuts.  Not a fan of "Outlier" at all; they don't even sound like Spoon on that track to me, too much distracting electronic backing there for my taste.

The new Modest Mouse album, "Strangers to Ourselves", has leaked online and will go on sale in a week.

I've listened to it, and it's pretty decent. Granted I am a HUGE Modest Mouse fan (The Lonesome Crowded West is my favorite album of all time), so I'll listen to even their worst songs. STO is about as good as Good News for People Who Love Bad News, and better than We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank.

"Coyotes", my favorite single from the album:

I feel like this forum isn't the right place to find a lot of Purity Ring fans, but they released their second album this month. This record is less weird lyrically and more pop-oriented than the last one, which has been the cause of some lukewarm reviews, but I like it a lot. If before they were a less poppy version of The Knife, now they're Chvrches with hip-hop beats. I'm fine either way.

Saw Purity Ring last night. Definitely one of the best shows I've been to, top five easily. They played a nice combination of their two albums, though the highlights were Lofticries, Belispeak, Body Ache, and Sea Castle. Apparently it was the biggest show of their tour. The only downside was they refused to play an Encore, but the set itself was pretty solid. I'd recommend seeing them live if you get a chance.

Just a quick introduction to my music tastes. 

I would say that my favorite genres of music are rock and pop, with an emphasis on 80s and 90s stuff.  I'm very eclectic, as I also enjoy classic rap/r&b, classic rock (primarily from the 70s), country, and jazz.  About the only type of music I dislike is classical....can't get into Bach and Beethoven, LOL.  I also enjoy analyzing and discussing lyrics; I find that the legends of rock/pop have explored some great ideas.  My favorite lyric is this one from the Rolling Stones:

"You can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you might find you get what you need" :)

Also, I wish to note that I am a DJ for my own internet radio station, which is called "Radio Free Connecticut".  I don't have a real schedule at this time; I'm just on whenever I feel like it, LOL.  If you want to check the station out, go to my Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/Radio-Free-Connecticut-680518518760296/ (https://www.facebook.com/Radio-Free-Connecticut-680518518760296/).  Keep rockin', people! :)

What does everyone think of the current music scene? Personally, and to quote Bob Seger, I think it "ain't got the same soul".  However, I have been known to enjoy listening to a few recent songs, such as Shawn Mendes' "Stitches".  That's pretty much all I'll admit to, LOL.  ;)

Absolutely gorgeous song. Regardless of your thoughts on Kanye, everyone should listen to Ultralight Beam at least once in their life. Feels like I'm in a Church when I listen to it and I'm not even a Christian.

Glorious song for sure. TLOP is some of Kanye's best work imo.

The music video to the Ariana Grande-Iggy Azalea song "Problem" reminds me of matrix eigenvalues.

Does that make me a total nerd, or what?

Specifically, the rotating spirals in the video remind me of the 2x2 matrix [0 1] [-1 0], which rotates a figure 90 degrees, and which has i and -i as its eigenvalues.

Peter Gabriel - Solsbury Hill is stuck in my head right now.  :)

I listened to Genesis' debut album for the first time just recently. I am not a huge Gabriel fan, BTW. It's serviceable as a light psychedelic album in a sort of Procol Harum way. And there weren't any Space Oddity type stunners or The Court of the Crimson King that would really say these guys are heads and above the rest even though they have some really nice arrangements and guitar playing. I am not a prog for complexity sake type of person but of course their debut is nothing like Selling England by the Pound or Lamb Lies Down on Broadway that's for sure. The band themselves do not like it - is it the lack of passion - what is it in particular?

Interesting speaking of the band - first post-Gabriel album Wind and Wuthering of course and another famous collaborator with Gabriel - Kate Bush, I've got her first album - The Kick Inside on repeat these days - I actually prefer "Moving" to "Wuthering Heights" though and really like Andrew Powell's arrangements in addition to his Alan Parsons Project work, and Gilmour/Floyd connection he had a hand in key releases for Cockney Rebel and Be Bop Deluxe, two of my favorite acts.

In some ways I feel that aspects of art rock / art pop including Gabriel, Robert Fripp solo, Kate Bush and such were just as progressive in the true sense of the word than prog rock especially in the days of punk, reggae, & disco when the long album length tracks and mystical space / castle rock of early and mid-70's had fallen out of favor.

I am trying to give Gabriel a re-evaluation. I am not a fan of So (overhyped hit singles) but appreciate those 2 big mid-70's Genesis albums before he left the band considerably. With that in mind I am working my way through the other Genesis Gabriel albums to eventually get to Gabriel's string of self-titled solo albums from the late 70's - around the same time that Kate Bush debuted.

It was an interesting time as the prog format was moving on and aside from punk and disco so much else was going on that would shape the direction of things to come in the 80's and beyond.

I can really see with Kate's debut how it must have appealed so much to many visionary artists like Gabriel, Prince, and Bowie.

Are there any projects or collaborations you think I should seek out given I like those 2 prog albums and artists like Kate Bush, Eno, Bowie, King Crimson, Roxy Music, Prince, and so on?

I grew to like PF from when I was in TN and they had an independent classic rock station that would play their longer album tracks as well the usual ones like the Wall Pt 2 and a few tracks from DSOTM. Yes, they played a bit more Southern rock than I liked - but they mixed it up a bit and didn't seem like the precursor of XM radio's generic channels.

It sort of hurt their rep to limit such a great band to so few songs just like mainstream US classic rock radio had done to post Ziggy, pre-Let's Dance David Bowie (same 3 songs over & over again). Fleetwood Mac is reduced to about 4-5 songs, Heart to maybe 3 songs, Led Zep, Sabbath, Rush, Yes same thing. Sad.

I wish I had been able to get overseas broadcasts from England, Europe, or even more independent programs I've heard about in places like NYC or Cleveland or Chicago from years' past.

Who else likes Melanie Martinez?

I've been a fan ever since her appearance on The Voice,  but in the past 2 or so weeks I've really been listening to her a lot.

I listened to her a lot up until about a month ago. Still good stuff.

I'm not sure this is relevant, and I'm also not sure I should say this here, but I also kinda have a crush on her FWIW

She's weird, her fans are weird, her music is pedestrian

"Girls of the SEC" is such a good song. Never change, Chase Rice.

Noah Gundersen's new album is a complete departure, and I love it.

Bad Desire is tailor-made for the couple's first dance at a wedding reception. The Sound completely changes a minute and a half through, and it's so unexpected it's breathtaking.

Peter Gabriel - Solsbury Hill is stuck in my head right now.  :)

I am trying to give Gabriel a re-evaluation. I am not a fan of So (overhyped hit singles) but appreciate those 2 big mid-70's Genesis albums before he left the band considerably. With that in mind I am working my way through the other Genesis Gabriel albums to eventually get to Gabriel's string of self-titled solo albums from the late 70's - around the same time that Kate Bush debuted.

. . .

Are there any projects or collaborations you think I should seek out given I like those 2 prog albums and artists like Kate Bush, Eno, Bowie, King Crimson, Roxy Music, Prince, and so on?

Finally someone who also likes The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway! That album is a masterpiece, no matter how overblown or bizarre it is.

Please tell me you've listened to Discipline by King Crimson... That album is one of my all-time favorites
