My insatiable appetite for frivolous purchases on CDs I know nothing about has brought a few gems to the music library.  Lately it's been a bit of a mix of Electro, Indie, Hip Hop and Funk

Last few cds bought were:

Hybrid: I Choose Noise [dance breakbeat type stuff with a dark cinematic quality partly due to a collaboration with Harry Gregson Williams the film composer]

California Soul:  Mix of various West Coast tracks from '65 - '81, ranging from funk to latin grooves.

Cut Copy: Bright Like Neon Love.  Indie electro I suppose.

Four Brothers: The Soundtrack.  Good mix of funk-type songs.

And as a nice bonus after buying California Soul and Four Brothers the guy at the second hand music store gave me for free four mixed cds they had created which is a great mix of funk, hip hop and just generally fun music to listen to.  I seem to be listening to them more than the cds I actually bought! 

Plus one of the cds opens with the opening track from the Monty Python Meaning of Life Soundtrack, which is always fun.

I don't like alot of these "metalcore" bands out and I don't like Hatebreed. Not a shot at you are anything just posting my opinon.  Cheers

I like Rise Against but I should say I like their singles. I haven't heard a full length album by them so I can't judge.

Oh, I didn't take it as a shot.  Differences in musical opinions are highly respected by me.   Cheers

We have the newest Rise Against, and I quite like it. 

My husband and I have upwards of 1000 CD's.  I swear, for awhile there we were buying at least a cd or two a week.  That has slacked off considerably, but it's still pretty common.  Got the new Killswitch Engage today, and I'm lovin it!  I knew I would, of course....

I don't know...I like a little bit of everything, really.  Some of my husband's "Death Metal" and "Black Metal" is for the dogs, in my opinion, but some of it is pretty good. 

The last concert I went to was something of an Alt-Country group called the Old 97's, and that was the best time I have had at a show in a LONG time. 

And I am most definitely an 80's music fan.  Hair metal, whatever.  If it came from the 80's, chances are, I like it.

Music is something that I could talk about for days....


Normally, I would listen to my MP3 player in my car.  I have a cheap cassette adapter for it, but my car's transmission recently went out.  I bought another car, this one with a CD player but no cassette.  I now can't listen to the music on the mp3 player on the way to work.  I refuse to use a FM transmitter with it, as every one I've used in the past has sucked.

So I drive around with a stack of cds in a small area below my radio in my car.

Here's what I have been listening to lately:

Fear Factory: Obsolote and Demanufacture - Great techno/metal.  Their more recent stuff is crap, but these two albums are some of the best pieces of metal in the last 20 years.  I wish someone would make a science fiction/horror film that had the same feel as Fear Factory's music.  Hunter-Killer would make for a great movie.

Ytcracker: NerdRap Entertainment System - Hooray for free music!  Great little nerd-rap album put to 8-bit music from classic NES games. 

Slipknot: Subliminal Verses/Iowa - The only true metal band around that's throwing down the way they should.  Subliminal Verses is a great album, and I love Slipknot's departure from straight metal and throwing in some great accoustic songs. 

V-Mob: Just a mix of a bunch of V-Mob songs.  They were an indie metal group that broke up a few years ago.  They never got signed to any labels, but they were awesome.

Circle Jerks: Oddities, Abnormalities and Curiosities/Golden Shower Of Hits - Great punk they way it used to be done.  Oddities is a personal favorite with great songs like Teenage Electric, Dog, I Wanna Destroy You and Sinking Ship.  I wish punk was still this good.

Modest Mouse: The Moon And Antartica - If you can't tell, I have a bit of eccletic taste when it comes to music.  This album is probably my favorite of all the ones I own.  It's a great song to sit back and listen to.  It's surreal and reminds me quite a bit of vintage Pink Floyd.

Pearl Jam: All Albums - Pearl Jam is the best rock band to emerge from the 90s.  I don't care who you are, they have always thrown down with some great music.  I have 3 cds worth of mixed tunes from their various albums.  It's music I grew up with, and have loved ever since.

Reel Big Fish: Our Live Album Is Better Than Yours - Love RBF.  I've been into Ska for a long time now (hence the name) and RBF has always been one of my favorites.  They're goofy, fast, and rock hard.  This is their latest album and it's a live dual disc.  My wife and I are actually going to see them a week from tomorrow down in Myrtle Beach, SC at the House Of Blues.  Can't wait for that.

CHUD Podcasts - I don't listen to a lot of podcasts, but I love the ones that CHUD puts out.  They never fail to make me laugh, and they cover some great flicks - I.E. Castle Freak.

Bad Religion: How Could Hell Be Any Worse? - Wow.  Another great punk album unlike anything else.  Has rare recordings of various songs, and everything on here is as good as it comes.  It sucks that Bad Religion became a bit wussified in the 90s. 

Psychostick: We Couldn't Think Of A Title - Beer is one song that should make you buy this album ASAP.  It's stupid "Weird Al" style heavy/death metal.  Really funny.

You got some good choices their Skaboi. Did you see American Hardcore? I saw it in the thearter right before I went to a CBGB to see Regan Youth and Agent Orange and it was great.

I saw Fear Factory live with Megadeth they were pretty good.

I love the Circle Jerks. Their first album Group Sex is one of the greats in punk history. Saw them live too.

I'm not a big Slipknot or Reel Big Fish they never really appealed to me.

 I agree with you with Bad Religion. They got caught up in 90s pop-punk scene where all the punk bands started to sound like NOFX and MxPx.

Skaboi, I have Modest Mouse's Good News for People Who Like Bad News (the title alone seemed like it was tailor-made for me), and enjoy it alot, do you have it? If so would you recommend TMAA to people who like the album I have? I've thought of picking it up but many of the bands in semi-recent years, like The Mars Volta or Supergrass, that I have bought an album by that I have liked have disappointed me when I've tried either newer or older stuff by them. Same for stuff like the Drive-by Truckers, who I think are decent but don't quite work for me to the point of being a fan. Several of the members are originally from here, I'm convinced I knew one of them personally at an earlier stage of life.

I've liked the White Stripes and Audioslave, but consider them radio fodder, so why bother with the albums? Maybe it's just my rapidly approaching geezerdom, but odd older stuff peaks my curiosity more and more now. Faust, The Wild Tchopitolas, Sun Ra, etc. - this is the stuff I find myself wanting to seek out now.

Sorry all, about the stupid coding error in my previous post, party foul for not previewing.

I would certainly recommend TMAA if you liked Good News.  I actually picked up Good News first, after hearing Float On.  Good News was my favorite album that came out that year.  I decided to go back and check out their earlier stuff, and TMAA is the best of all their albums.  It's a bit more strange than Good News but it's fantastic.  I highly recommend it.

Their albums earlier than TMAA aren't as good though.  It seems they didn't hit their stride and find out what exactly they were out to accomplish until that album.  Some of their ealier work like 'Baron Von Bulls**t Rides Again' is just disjointed and doesn't have the same feel as their more recent works.




Rich,

I've not seen American Hardcore, but I certainly will now that you've mentioned it.  I'd love to see Agent Orange live!  Speed Kills!  Fast Cars!  Cheap Thrills!

Yep, Group Sex is a great album as well but I've seemed to have misplaced by copy.  I'll need to dig through my cds this weekend and see if I can find it.

And it's really a shame what happened with BR.  I know A LOT of bands got caught up in the pop-punk deal.  I think that BR is slowly pulling away from that with their newer albums, The Empire Strikes First in particular.  I don't think they'll ever get back to the way things were with How Could Hell Be Any Worse, but atleast they're taking steps in the right direction.

I have both of those Modest Mouse albums, and like them both.  I also picked up Good News first, and Float On is my ringtone.  I alternate between that and Soul Meets Body by Death Cab for Cutie. 

I definitely gravitate to metal, but I really do like everything, and I even buy radio fodder!   TeddyR  In my car at the moment, I have Gym Class Heroes, Senses Fail, Panic at the Disco, Killswitch Engage, OK GO, DMX, and the Old 97's.  I just like music, and I don't care if people make fun of me for my choices!  Yes, I own Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Lopez and Milli Vanilli!  And yes, my husband and friends hang their heads in shame, but that's ok.  Right?

So does Pat Boone's In a Metal Mood (yes, I own it and still occasionally listen to it) count as death metal? Several people I've played it for have wished they were dead.

Thanks both of you for the recommendation, weirder MM would be good. Ocean Breathes Salty is my favorite from Good News.

I know the Old 97s by reputation and from a recent alt-country phase I was in, which has since cooled for me. Hard to find Songs:Ohia or Slobberbone albums unless ordering online all the time, and I'm not buying every Ryan Adams album he puts out since he makes so much crap mixed in with the good stuff. Son Volt and Jay Farrar are spotty to me.

Oh, man....I've so far resisted this particular temptation.   But I want to cave....I do. 

Yaddo - I'm relatively new to the Old 97's.  I have a friend who just loves them, and took me to a concert.  Now, I'm hearing them in movies (Clay Pigeons, Just Friends, The Break Up).  I'm surrounded.  *L*  In your Alt-Country phase, did you ever listen to a band called Trailer Bride?  They're good too.  I first heard them on an episode of Freaky Links (anyone remember that show?  Loved it.  Bluesad)

Damn.  Pat Boone, and the pop stuff in Amanda's post, is about all I recognize or even have ever heard of in the second half of this thread.

Gorillaz gets me through the long classes. I usually switch it up with some Alabama 3 in the mornings and my Battlestar OST at night.

Sorry, Amanda, I've heard the name Trailer Bride, but never their music. I vaguely remember Freaky Links, and know I watched it a few times.

My CD player broke recently so I had a couple of days of no music when I was walking to college. Thank god I got other one so here what I have been listening to:

Angry Samoans -Unboxed Set- Collects all their songs on one Disc. The first 26 are the best than it gets really weak from their. Saw them live.

Gang Green- Another Wasted Night- Hardcore comical band. Talks bout drinking and having sex. Great stuff.

Rich,

Love Angry Samoans.  I still have "Back From Samoa" on a cassette.  They Saved Hitler's Cock and Steak Knife are two of my favorites from them.

I need to check out that Unboxed Set.  I'll see if I can search it out around here.
