just listened to cex - oops, i did it again. very differnt stuff, kinda IDMish rap, or dubbish IDM, or, i dunno, i can't really describe it. I've been fishing around the cex website brainwashed.com/tb6/cex/fmenu.htm all morning. He runs the site himself, so it's particualrly amusing to read what the guy has to say about himself and his life. The guy is obviously a little disturbed. Moreso than myself. God help him.

pretty hate machine was like, the first CD i ever owned. I remember begging my mom to buy that for me when I was in like middle school. It's probably the only record that I can truely say I know front to back every little sound in it. i must have listened to it 100 times. i can accurately "jukebox" it in my head all the way from the chirps at the beginning to the guitars at the end. crazy

Gawd, I'm soooo old.
I recognized the older stuff from this thread. Floyd, Jimi, Bowie, Kinks even Pumpkins and Korn but you guys have lost me with about 90% of the music you listen to. I must admit I don't like/listen to metal or rap (don't hate me, I don't hate you for not understanding the Blues) so that takes care of a lot of your lists but I'm completely lost with the rest.
You'll probably say ' whos this old fart trying to kid with these albums' but here goes with a few of my favorites.
1 Tom Waits-Small Change-Blue Valentine
2 anything by Jimi
3 Joe Walsh -Yer Album-Rides Again-So What
4 anything by Skynard-Almond Brothers-Marshall Tucker
5 Jeff Beck
6 anything Zydeco or Bluegrass
7 anything by Charlie Parker

I wish he would tour again. I've never seen him live except on TV. I listen to his stuff a lot too. Once you understand his music you laugh, you cry, you feel like gettin drunk, goin to a strip joint and gettin a tattoo. He has such a vivid song writing imagination. I try to write songs, I struggle with them and they come out like crap. Tom Waits has brilliant songs and melodies fallin out of his nose.

man I missed the NIN debate .. :P to me I can't say there is a Best work of Trent Reznor , all of his stuff can hit you at a different mood . PHM was one of my first tapes I bought , broken , and TDS were great sonic works and the fragle is a full span album , it kind of wraps the past albums up and brought on a new birth of songs . We all have out fav's and i have ot admit NIN is one of mine but to limit a list of 10 , man that list can change each week , or even day ,because there is so much good music out there .

I think I've convinced theflame to give The Downward Spiral a try. It wasn't on my list earlier this week, but it is today ;O)

Well, I can honestly say I have listened to something from just about all the bands in your lists, and everything in Crashes list. jues, I gotta go with TMV and TFSOL on your list for sure. Jamie, Orbital and Aphex Twin are fantastic, especially live. And Trent is just plain a genious, I got to hear him play a couple original classical pieces and he ranks up there with Zappa as far as using insruments to there fullest.

Pixel, DJ Shadow was a big influance on a lot of my music in that genre and his music really made me realize sampling is an art form.

coolo, Stevie Wonder and Zion I are my faves in your list although you had several good ones.

Crash, Waits, Beck and Parker all get my vote, although your picks are all great.
Jamie, I think youll like Waits stuff, he is very ecclectic and lets just say differant.

Hero, Modest Mouse and Rancid are my faves in your list.

Loki, Enigma is fantastic another big influance on me. The Cure, KMFDM is fantastic live as well, and also Android Lust But I only have them on mp3.

Blue your entire list rocks, but Im partial to The Gear Daddies as they are local boyz, and friends of mine and I must say Martin Zellar is great solo but still rocks the whole world when he plays with Gear Daddies.

I guess Ill throw 2 in although have too many to list.

Tangerine Dream - all their work is stellar

Deep Forest - all thier stuff as well

And one more for the sake of it all,

Frank Zappa - all his work solo and with the Mothers of Invention.

All music is good, and I am glad to say I can listen to it all and enjoy something in all of it. From the trashiest Punk to the most boring classical. When I stop listening and at least giving all music a chance, then it will be time for me to leave this earth. And hopefully, that day is a long way down the road.

All your list were great, not one bad pick in the bunch.

Embedding is disabled so you'll have to go there and check it out. Just click the menu button and copy the url. This one is called Mind's Eye and is killer and trippy.

The keys are very Jon Lord like.

If you have heard them at all it is probably this one called Woman.

Also check out their tune Dimension. This stuff is straight from the early 70's. And not too bad, it just caught me by surprise to hear a newer band that sounded that good doing it

Hue - You've been raiding my albums...

Tad - We've hashed out the pros and cons of that Wilco album, so I won't go there. However, you mentioned The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars. So full marks!

I'd like to add a few. Not just because they are stellar recordings, but also because they have so much feel. Frankly, feel is somewhat of a lost art sometimes:

* 8:30 - Weather Report
* Spilt Milk - Jellyfish
* You Gotta Sin To Get Saved - Maria McKee
* Rumour And Sigh - Richard Thompson
* Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath
* Goodbye Yellow Brick Road - Elton John
* Rattus Norvegicus - Stranglers
* Ogden's Nut Gone Flake - Small Faces
* Shadows and Light - Joni Mitchell
* 801 Live - 801

Yeah, there are some live albums in there....but they all are wonderful. Anyway, Hue mentioned Made in Japan (very cool album...the soundtrack of my youth).

And yes, I am feeling old...

Ya, TC. I'm not sure what is so appealing to me about them. Maybe its the tracks that are a throwback to the early 70's trippy rock I used to listen to. Or the just plain in your face straight up hard rock. Either way, the guy can sing fine and is a pretty straight up rock guitar player. Nothing fancy but it fits so well with the music they are playing.

Oh ya, Weather Report. That gets you 10 stars right there for sure!

As a kid, it was like a thing to do... if you had enough of 'em... picked up from the 'used' section of the local record/tape store... ROCK, Mo-Mo !!!

Bluesdues: Trower... Bridge Of Sighs... Alathea... YES !!!

TC: Weather Report... Prolly the first fusion-jazz-thing I was ever introduced to . Stanley Jordan... hell yeah !

You're soooo right Deebs... some music flat-out 'sucks', although some people are afraid to say so... or even BE so . It really comes down to perception . I know, 'cause I 'suck', but still 'ROCK'... at any given moment ! heh heh... Does anyone ever really have the strength to accept defeat by ones own standars... some... it takes a bit of stregth .

'greatness is transitory'.

This was a very cool thread to revive... kind'a made me remeber alot of key-note influences...

All music is good.
If you don't like it, it's a different matter. However, as an art form all music is good.
"Sucks" is an opinion.

I said "Album" because I am a geezer...
CeeDee sounds twee.

Return to forever - Hell yeah!

Born again...Hmmm...Not sure, dB-Wan....
I might just be a purist. That said, Heaven and Hell was wonderful.
I guess the first album just captured something wonderful and pure, and the feel is incredible.
Completely random: Has anyone ever noticed on the cover of Black Sabbath, next to the old house....there's a Ford Transit van parked. Very medieval and spooky....

Uriah Heep...oh, yeah. Wonderworld is terrific. Not the usual fare, but amazing Gary Thain playing. Especially, Suicidal Man, and We Got We.

Oh, and "Back to Black" by Amy Winehouse is GENIUS. The more I listen to it, the more I believe this to be one of those timeless albums.

I was/am a huge Purple fan, and I loved his early solo work ("For Gillan Fans Only" - although very choppy, and sometimes silly is a masterpiece). I just didn't dig the Sabbath thing. Personal taste and all that.

Kudos to BH for "Remote Control" ("I'll spray the necessary aerosol in the appropriate place..") - that should have been on my list. "Completion Backwards Principle" is also wonderful. One of my all time favourite bands.

Not from Remote Control but still pretty cool.

Grand Funk is one of those under rated bands for sure. They were great live.

And the Tube, another bad that always put on a great live show.

If it came down to ONE album...

... y'a know, the whole "desert island thing "...

Floyd's Dark Side Of The Moon .

Hands down .

Edit: Sorry, I was just listening to it at the time, and was compelled... such perfection .

I guess even though I have others that I find truly amazing I would have to agree. Dark side of the Moon is something one can never grow tired of.

I can't believe no one has mentioned 'Temple of the dog'.

Oh ya, the super dooper group. I still break that disc out and the boyz and I go for a ride around the lakes or something and crank it up. Still a very cool album if you ask me.
