Music
 
Guys I want you all to post about what kind of music you listen to.

Music, bands, etc., and IN-DEPTH.

NOW. I am demanding.

Feral 01-10-2005 04:31 PM

I'm currently listening to one of Tim Curry's albums...

Skinkie 01-10-2005 05:23 PM

This thread covers most of our classic rock interests. That's a quick start to this. But in order to finish it I'll say everyone go buy all of Collective Soul's albums. Or, at least the Self-Titled, and Dosage. Trust me.

Alien426 01-10-2005 09:07 PM

I'm listening to The Coral's self-titled album and Radiohead's OK Computer.

But since I'm a soundtrack buff I also bought some most of John Barry's remastered James Bond soundtracks.

*Nods to Grooveh*

We like alot of the same stuff. I like music quite a bit. Right now I'm listening to alot of Lamb of God and American Head Charge. I'd make a list, but it's getting late here. And I'm getting lazier by the minute.

simian 01-11-2005 12:49 AM

I'm currently undergoing a blur retrospective - Think Tank, 13 and Modern life is rubbish.

edlib 01-11-2005 02:36 AM

I like a little bit of everything... blues and jazz, folk, classical, pop and rock (all sub-genres of both), country and bluegrass... just about everything. Actually, it 's probably a lot easier to list what I don't like to listen to: which is pretty much just Gospel and Hip-Hop.

Artists that currenty have my attention:

Yes
The Dixie Dregs
Alison Krauss
Jethro Tull
XTC
Radiohead
Eric Johnson
Kings X
Steely Dan
Wes Montgomery
Pat Metheny
Randy Newman
Jeff Beck
J.S. Bach
Anggun
Charlie Parker
Republica

There are of course many more than that,.. but those are the ones that come to me off the top of my head without looking around at my recently listened to CDs.

what about Frank Zappa?

edlib 01-11-2005 04:45 AM

Strangely enough I haven't been listening to him much lately... although he is one of my all-time faves.

Like I said: There's a lot of people I left out...

Orbyss 01-11-2005 08:21 AM

Hur?
 
Oh, man. I thought at least of few of you'd be into hardcore(-ish) electronic the likes of which I subject myself to:

Easy IDM:

2 Lone Swordsmen (any of their more early stuff/AKA "Sabres of Paradise")
Black Dog, The (AKA Plaid before 2000)
Boards of Canada
Chemical Brothers, The
ilya y. rostovtsev (friend of mine)
Bola
Kraftwerk/Karl Bartos
µ-Ziq
Orbital
Plaid (also credited as Atypic, Balil and Tura)
Prodigy (very occasionally)
Utah Saints (very occasionally)

"Acid Jazz"DJs:

Amon Tobin (also credited as "Cujo")
Bonobo
Jaga Jazzist
Kid Koala

Hardcore/Drum & Bass/Experimental:

Aphex Twin (Richard D. James)
Autechre
Jega

Ambient/Other (Mixed)

Future Sound of London, The
Global Communication
Higher Intelligence Agency
Orb, The


Then I listen to orchestral, organic music such as Baroque, Romantic, Classical and Contemporary musical movements and classic rock (occasionally for a trip down memory lane) such as Pink Floyd. Done grew up on the Pink Floyd, I did. I also have a weird collection of very bizarre stuff, including but not limited to 80s and 90s pop music (again, it's a nostalgia thing) and Swedish mainstream (blame it on the friends).

But I am sickened by the radio. Cannot take the radio, and I certainly refuse to listen to modern mainstream. Yeah, I know. :( I'm "one of those people".

Oh yes that is a phase we must all grow out of. :D Though I still like some of it, again, for the nostalgic value. Sometimes. Not often.

Quote:

[Prodigy]...i used to like them...
Yeah, I should have specified that they sort of died after... what was it, "Fat of the Land"? Which I didn't like a whole lot in itself, but... yeah.

Kraftwerk is just interesting being that they are world famous as "electronic pioneers". I really dig some of Karl Bartos' new stuff, though. "I'm the Message" included in that.

simian 01-11-2005 09:56 AM

XTC - how could I forget XTC?

Also bought Supergrass (is 10) recently - reminded me what great band they are - though you lot in the former colonies probably havn't had much exporsure :D

Actually I took a counterpoint writing class in the style of J.S. Bach where the motto was: "If it ain't Baroque... FIX IT!"

I guess you had to be there...

Actually that's more what I was thinking. Then again I am very gay for the Baroque. Maybe that's really why I like Monkey Island. Go figure.

Skinkie 01-12-2005 05:24 PM

Gay for Baroque, there's a brave admittance.

Same here. But I guess it would be a monster list if I named all the bands I have songs by. I just picked out the "top musicians" on my playlist.

...they were in braunschweig (where i live) at the 19th of november, but i somehow didn't notice until the 20th... :(

That splash page is scaring me something awful. It screams at me: "FULL OF KINK AND BONDAGE BEYOND THIS POINT; BEWARE".

So naturally I am going in head-first.

nightwish, freedom call, kamelot, muse, sonata arctica etc :)

JofaGuht 01-16-2005 08:53 PM

Fender, you reminded me of Evergrey. I have the most recent CD, and I really dig them. Also probably has the best vocalist in metal, next to Mikael Akerfeldt...and Serj Tankian, if you consider SOAD metal, which I don't.

As for Children of Bodom, I honestly think they are very overrated. I prefer construction-based stuff as opposed to intracacy-based stuff (same reason I think Dimmu Borgir kicks Cradle of Filth's ass, and why Wakeman beats up Emerson in my mindset[s]) But I'm not too big into power metal, so don't listen to me.

Although Bodom was in of the best concert line-ups I've seen: Hypocracy, Bodom, Nevermore, and Dimmu Borgir. I thought those where great choices that really fit. Although there was also this show with Crossbreed, Godhead, and Rammstein that made an awesome line-up.

As for worst line-ups ever: Neurosis and Pantera. All the redneck Pantera fans booed off Neurosis. What were those tour managers thinking?
