Muse are one of the most atrocious bands around at the moment.

Anyway, trying to steer the conversation away from metal for at least some of us Tongue What's you guys opinion of folk?

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

     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. Smiley

     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 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.

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.

Wow, check out this trippy interactive video from Broken Bells (aka the lead singer from The Shins and Danger Mouse): http://www.brokenbells.com/october/

Pretty cool.

Sounds like it would make a good addition to a soundtrack.  Otherwise, I don't like to listen to songs that 7 minutes of random noises with no discernible melody casually.

     John Zorn's pretty good. I do agree with King, though, that it seems more suited to a movie soundtrack.

I think it's harder to tell this is a girl:

What the derp is "progressive rock"?  Musical genres make absolutely no sense.  I mean, I have yet to figure out what "industrial" is, and I'm not going to even bother figuring out what the derp "house" is supposed to be.

Ah, hence progressive.

On the subject of musical genres, I hate how "indie" is taken to be some sort of style of music.  Indie music is music that is produced either independently, or by independent record labels.

Well it's become a style of music because at the time most indie labels produced this poppy alternative-rock sound.  Thus, indie.

There's another derpy music genre name, alternative.  "Yeah, I listen to alternative."  Alternative to what?  That's the kind of thing one of those artsy people who make a big deal about being "non-conformist" would say they listen to.

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.

Well now Punks at least have a sense of recognition for such great music.Cheesy

It used to be non-conformist, now it is conformist.Tongue

Name still applies though, it pretty much means mainstream now (well alternative to the real mainstream, which is post-grunge, pop, etc.)
