Truly catchy songs here, and while it may not be pure to it's genre as I may have thought without listening to more.. this is something else. After a few more listens I'll even try and get the vinyl of it :3:
I envy your ecleticism. :unsmith:
[QUOTE=AK'z;29221911]Not all of their albums were great :smugdog:[/QUOTE] I love all their albums, I don't know what albums you thought weren't great though.
[QUOTE=Rooster Assassin;29225050]I love all their albums, I don't know what albums you thought weren't great though.[/QUOTE] I don't like to say all of their albums were great while still loving the artist. I would say that Human After All was their least inspired work, [I]that[/I] doesn't mean to say it wasn't enjoyable. That's just how I would rate it :3: [editline]16th April 2011[/editline] [img]http://1001albums.ericdumas.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/06/getz-gilberto.jpg[/img] Stan Getz and João Gilberto - Getz/Gilberto - 1964 [B]A+[/B] This is a mindblowing album. As far as [I]pioneering[/I] a genre goes, this is a big one. So easy to listen to and timeless. Almost 50 years old and I can still find it easy to see how people nowadays can enjoy it. It's more "Bossa-Nova" than straight up Samba like I was looking for, but I dig this to the point where it is essential for my collection. [editline]16th April 2011[/editline] [img]http://www.warblerrecords.com/storage/nb.jpg?__SQUARESPACE_CACHEVERSION=1297028822738[/img] Novos Baianos - Acabou Chorare - 1971 [B]B+[/B] It's supposed to be the biggest samba record, but I personally wasn't as moved as I would have thought, having previously heard a Jorge Ben album. This is good stuff though, worth a listen.

Human After All is probably my second favourite, behind, or with, Discovery, but I do get what you mean by uninspired.
[img]http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/4/4a/Cracktheskye.jpg[/img] Mastodon - Crack The Skye - 2009 [B]A[/B] I've listened to this a ton of times, but I feel like rating it anyway.. since it was one of my first true metal thrills. It isn't being pretentious and it doesn't dabble around, this just gives it to you straight and immerses you within a certain tone of metal.. or probably only [I]prog[/I] metal since I don't really hear it anywhere else.. and it makes you feel. All you want to do is groove, especially with The Last Baron.

Kind of like Hearts Alive almost on Leviathan. I have to check how long until the song is over because they both bore me to some extent.
[img]http://www.miomusik.com/johnny_hollow/dirty_hands_digipack_CD_z.jpg[/img] Johnny Hollow - Dirty Hands (2008) 3.5/5 It was alright, not enough stand out tracks really.
[img]http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/6/6b/Pixies-Doolittle.jpg[/img] [b]The Pixies - Doolittle - 8.5/10[/b] Good Alt Rock with some noise incorporated into it. A good listen for a day of chilling out, and there's just a charm about it that keeps you listening. Hard to pass up.
Doolittle's one of my favourite albums. Check out Surfer Rosa which is also by the Pixies if you want something more psychotic sounding.
Will do
[IMG]http://cdn.pitchfork.com/media/4590-silent-shout.jpg[/IMG] Silent Shout - The Knife have you ever asked yourself, "what if aphex twin was a woman with a bjork-esque voice and made songs about feminism?" well the answer would be silent shout. with a sound world that i could describe as autechre crashing into an I-Love-The-80's special, silent shout is a furious electronica album. most striking is the swedish singer's voice, which will often be pitch shifted, from the hilarious man-voice of One Hit to the impossibly high and creepy Na Na Na. if you enjoy any kind of electronic music then you are missing out on some of the most forward and unique electronic pop of the last decade. throw out your lady gaga records, the knife has harder beats and hotter hooks. bjork-ma-ork: 5 creepy robo bjorks out of 5 [IMG]http://img40.imageshack.us/img40/4686/allisfulloflove.jpg[/IMG][IMG]http://img40.imageshack.us/img40/4686/allisfulloflove.jpg[/IMG][IMG]http://img40.imageshack.us/img40/4686/allisfulloflove.jpg[/IMG][IMG]http://img40.imageshack.us/img40/4686/allisfulloflove.jpg[/IMG][IMG]http://img40.imageshack.us/img40/4686/allisfulloflove.jpg[/IMG]
The Grateful Dead - American Beauty 456/599 Nice fun happy countyish rock.

This is very emotional and personal I feel... and the reason why I'm not rating this considerably higher is that it didn't particularly make me feel how the artist wanted me to feel. For example, "The Dark Side of the Moon" makes me feel precisely how the artist wants me to feel and there is no escaping that. With this one, you can simply accept what is going on and take on what it is ranting about, even though as melodious as it may be.. it doesn't steal your heart like something Radiohead could make. Still one to recommend.[/QUOTE] I know what you're saying, but personally I find Eels to have some of the most "heart stealing" - as you put it - music I've heard, much moreso than Radiohead. I think knowing about Mark Everett's story makes a difference - the man's life is a complete tragedy and it can change your perception of his music. I understand though, that album is quite depressing and the tone is quite different to his other work.

I'm finding it very difficult to pay proper attention to Arcade Fire however, there's just something about the atmosphere created by their sound which is a bit... lethargic? I don't know. As far as their music goes, though, this is fantastic. I know people say Funeral is their best but honestly I find this so much more accessible, and this is only a good thing in my eyes.
arcade fire lethargic? i would say arcade fire is completely restless.

I like it.
Donnie Darko OST [img]http://music.killswtch.net/images/205-1.jpg[/img] [quote] "Never Tear Us Apart" by INXS – 3:04 "Head Over Heels" by Tears for Fears – 4:16 "Under the Milky Way" by The Church – 4:58 "Lucid Memory" by Sam Bauer and Gerard Bauer – 0:46 "Lucid Assembly" by Gerard Bauer and Mike Bauer – 0:52 "Ave Maria" by Vladimir Vavilov and Paul Pritchard – 2:57 "For Whom the Bell Tolls" by Steve Baker and Carmen Daye – 3:12 "Show Me (Part 1)" by Quito Colayco and Tony Hertz – 2:05 "Notorious" by Duran Duran – 4:00 "Stay" by Oingo Boingo – 3:38 "Love Will Tear Us Apart" by Joy Division – 3:23 "The Killing Moon" by Echo & the Bunnymen – 5:55 [/quote] I honestly think that the Donnie Darko OST is the best compilation of music ever put together. All 12 tracks are the absolute most wonderful tracks ever recorded. I could listen to this over and over; I would never be able to grow tired. 5/5 Franks [img]http://avatar.hq-picture.com/avatars/img2/donnie_darko_frank_avatar_picture_13466.jpg[/img][img]http://avatar.hq-picture.com/avatars/img2/donnie_darko_frank_avatar_picture_13466.jpg[/img][img]http://avatar.hq-picture.com/avatars/img2/donnie_darko_frank_avatar_picture_13466.jpg[/img][img]http://avatar.hq-picture.com/avatars/img2/donnie_darko_frank_avatar_picture_13466.jpg[/img][img]http://avatar.hq-picture.com/avatars/img2/donnie_darko_frank_avatar_picture_13466.jpg[/img]

But that being said, I'm a prog man, and I don't really care how long a song would be. If I were to listen to the album, I leave it going if I want. I was planning on only listening to Oblivion anyway, but that's what this does. I suggest more progressive music for you, it's better to understand how to feel about the style and becoming familiar with it.
[IMG]http://i55.tinypic.com/n51rv7.jpg[/IMG] Sufjan Stevens - Illinois or Sufjan Stevens Invites You To: Come On Feel The Illinoise 4/10 A wonderful album that acts as a mix between alternative rock baroque pop and indie pop and folk rock. Stevens has a great voice and the melodies are all very memorable and emotional combined with beautiful instrumentals. I love this album.

Why didnt it score higher?
Cloudkicker - Beacons 5/5 I like how it's purely instrumental. The titles give you all the meaning necessary to understand what the band is saying. The music can vary from ambient and soft, so much more intense and almost metal. Music created an image in my head, and I love it when songs do that. 5/5
[QUOTE=Franke_R!?;29244182]4/10 for an album you love? Why didnt it score higher?[/QUOTE] Because the last track was weak.
[QUOTE=Franke_R!?;29244182]4/10 for an album you love? Why didnt it score higher?[/QUOTE] Yeah What gives? You gave the Bob Dylan album a low rating while saying you loved it. Makes no sense :psyduck:
so because one track wasn't as good as the rest it got a very low score? :v:
Pie is trolling us.
