Title: The Music Discussion Thread (No Flaming!)
Post by: Bobbias on November 25, 2007, 01:42:04 AM
Since there's no music forum, and this didn't fit into either one of the artsy forums, I thought it might as well go here.

Anyway, what have you guys been listening to lately?

I've found myself listening to a weird mix of M1dy and Sharpnel, di.fm's Drum and Bass channel, B

Weird, but all I've been listening to lately is music from Sonic games (vocal tracks, everything from 1998-2006).

Oh, and I've been listening to somafm.com's stream called Cliqhop, which plays all sorts of weird stuff. I hear The Flashbulb, Prefuse 73, and Boards of Canada fairly regularly. It's all downtempo glitchy stuff. Awesome for sleeping, background music, or for actually listening to, if you enjoy that stuff.

The Offspring, pre-American Idiot Green Day, Fear Factory, Static-X, Serj Tankian, Linkin Park, The Flashbulb, Fort Minor, and Renard are all on my current playlist.  It's a fairly nice variety, I'd say.

If anyone like good hip-hop, try Andre Nickatina. He's from Oakland, and that alone makes him cool. I have also been listening to a lot of Murs lately. He's the guy from living legends.

Hmm, I think I should just make this the Music Discussion Thread.

As far as Hip-Hop goes, has anyone else heard the new Saul Williams album, "The Inevitable Rise and Liberation of Niggy Tardust"? It's absolutely amazing. He even does a NIN-esque cover of U2's Sunday Bloody Sunday. It's a great album.

Indeed it will be.  The only reason your other posts haven't been edited (I edited one before) was because I either didn't see it or it didn't seem shaky enough to warrant an edit.

Publicly posting the entire discography of a commercial artist is not only a bad idea in general but is against the rules here (hint: use PMs next time).

Alright, I do understand your concern about filesharing and such. I don't share those same concerns because honestly, I'd buy the album if I could. I'm thinking the next album I buy will be either m1dy or sharpnel.

I'm not arguing with the rule or anything (hell, it's your site).

Post by: Spectere on November 28, 2007, 12:53:51 AM
I don't have any personal concerns about file sharing (like I said, I do allow some bending of the rules, but this is a bit too much).  The reason I forbid this sort of thing is because it's against the TOS for my web host and because I could be held personally responsible if anything big goes down.  I'd rather not take my chances, even if this is an obscure site.  It's still well-crawled by Google so anyone can find anything on here if they wanted to.

Exactly what I was thinking.

EDIT: Wow, I just found a HUGE torrent of Hard Rock/Metal covers. And I mean, like, Sinner covering Rebel Yell, Angra covering Kashmir, Blind Guardian's Mr Sandman cover, Dungeon covering Blondie's Call Me. All of those are on the first CD(? it's an unofficial digital release), and over 150 releases in total! It's absolutely mind-blowing, and it's such an awesome collection. There are covers of everything from Uriah Heap, to Abba, to Bowie, and even a cover of Thriller in there somewhere.

Lol, yeah, I didn't say anything until Zak because I knew that if you'd wanted to use it, it would already be in place.

alright. i will. oh. and i dont know why but i forgot to mention Skinny Puppy. one of the best bands ever. get the album VIVIsect VI. glad you're liking Neubauten.

Now that's a name I recognize. No idea where I've heard of Skinny Puppy, but I know I've heard the name. Another band you should check out is Battles. Most of the band plays both guitar and keyboard. At the same time. They play 1 hand tapping along with playing stuff on the keyboards, and using all sorts of effects and such. Their newest album just came out, and blew my mind when I hard the stuff. They are one of the coolest experimental bands I've ever heard. They also employ loads of effects, such as pitch shifting the vocals and stuff. Oh, and if you're into noise rock, try Melt Banana, and The Locust. If you like Digital Hardcore, you probably already know Atari Teenage Riot, although if you don't, you should check them out too, lol. (Be prepared, they are an aural onslaught)

I'm just chock full of weird bands :P

Plaid's a really great IDM outfit, it's funny that I've never seen anyone here (as in the Bemani community) mention them. I've had IDM discussions other places, and everyone's like "wtf, Plaid is legendary, it's like Aphex Twin".
Title: Re: The Music Discussion Thread (No Flaming!)
Post by: Sqthreer! on December 03, 2007, 02:40:17 AM
I have a Plaid album on my computer. It's pretty cool, but not something I'd call legendary, and it's NOT like Aphex Twin. It may just be that particular album (Spokes).

P.S. YAY for people who like Dan Deacon. I first heard it the other day in this really awesome used clothes store. It was on the iPod of the current employee's and was playing in the store, so I asked :D

P.S.2. If anyone finds a good torrent-ish-type link of some of his stuff, please PM it to me, so that I may never visit it...............

Ah okay, I thought you were comparing them to each other XD I definitely prefer Aphex Twin, not only because of the style, but the memories it brings back. I started listening to it when I got to high school and started making weird friends. Also, Richard James is such an interesting person, and that makes me like the music more, in a way.

I shall have to check out Double Figure, then.

That's why I love Kirilian Selections so much, the whole CD seems to tell a story, and individual songs also seem to have some sort of story around them. Though I will admit that Aphex Twin's work also has a lot of story to it. Even the videos add to the stories.

Yeah :/ I remember using DC before DC++ existed... It was an experiment when I was tired of the dieing kazaa network. Unfortunately, kazaa was one of the best networks ever when it was in it's prime. It had practically everything you could ever want. It was sometimes harder to find some things, but still, as far as networks go, it was one of the best. Torrents are awesome, and Soulseek and DC are pretty good, but they don't quite have the ease of use of "Search -> Download -> Wait -> play" the way kazaa did. You have to find the right people to connect to, and such, and torrents can be a pain to track down, and there are too many torrents with no seeds.

Kind of a request, but I was wondering if I could get a recommendation for a good Children of Bodom album (was going to get Hate Crew Deathroll, anything else that's good?) or Opeth (preferably with a good mix of heavier songs, like black water park, and songs like harvest)?
Title: Re: The Music Discussion Thread (No Flaming!)
Post by: Bobbias on December 14, 2007, 05:50:33 PM
Opeth, you could download Damnation and Deliverance, which are 2 albums, but they're each dedicated to the 2 sounds of Opeth, Damnation is soft, and creepy as hell, and Deliverance is all hard, either that, or get Ghost Reveries or Black Water park. They both have a mix of hard and soft.

For Bodom, I much prefer their first 3, Something Wild, Hatebreeder, and Follow the Reaper. They have a lot more classical influence and less chugging sound. Hate Crew Deathroll isn't quite as bad as Are You Dead Yet? or their newest song they released (and likely their whole album will suck) but IMO their older stuff is better. It's faster, has less low growly stuff and more of the angry harsh stuff. And the solos are WAY better.

It's really tough to go wrong with Opeth, although I'm partial to their newer albums. Blackwater Park is probably my favorite, although I really like the keyboard stuff in Ghost Reveries. Also, guys who like prog, get Threshold's Dead Reckoning. It's really, really awesome.

I HIGHLY recommend him to anyone.

I just checked using a special hard drive management program how much space different file extensions took on my harddrive. .mp3 lead it with about 50 GB then AVI with 29 GB and MKV with 23. And that's only my E drive. Another 17 GB of mp3s on my D drive, as well as 23 GB of AVI. 2.5 GB of mp3 on my C drive, and 1.3 GB AVI.

That's only counting the major formats, and not a real definite number, but it looks like I have around 69.5-70 GB of mp3s, 53.3-54 GB of AVIs and 23 GB of MKVs. Not including the FLAC, OGG, M4A, MPEG, WMV, MP4, MPG, TTA, DAA, WAV, ISO, BIN and other assorted formats, lol. Damn.

I heard that too, about a month ago. Mike Portnoy is trying to put it together, but there's not much solidified on it right now. 3 and Between the Buried and Me are supporting as well, I believe it was slated to be called Progressive Nation.

Edit: Very quick googling found me the link, this is taken from Dream Theater's site

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


DREAM THEATER'S "PROGRESSIVE NATION" featuring OPETH, 3 and BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME to embark on inaugural tour of North America throughout April & May 2008.


New York progressive metal pioneers DREAM THEATER are set to unveil their maiden voyage of "PROGRESSIVE NATION". A package tour they will headline that will also feature the talents of OPETH, 3 and BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME.

The tour is the brainchild of DREAM THEATER drummer Mike Portnoy who explains: "I've been wanting to assemble a package tour like this for many years now. With all of the festivals and package tours that go through America, I've been talking with our manager and agent for over 10 years now about doing something that focuses on the more progressive, musician-oriented side of hard rock and metal. I decided it was time to stop talking the talk, lace up and finally walk the walk"

While DREAM THEATER co-headlined 2005's GIGANTOUR along side MEGADETH, as well as embarking on previous co-headlining runs with both QUEENSRYCHE and JOE SATRIANI, they have primarily built their 22 year career on the road playing solely to their own audience. Portnoy comments: "I've always prided myself on personally hand picking new and exciting opening acts for DREAM THEATER in the past. Bands such as PORCUPINE TREE, SYMPHONY X, SPOCK'S BEARD, FATES WARNING, PAIN OF SALVATION and KING'S X. In all of these cases, it was important for me to pick bands that I admire and respect but also ones that I know our fans will enjoy. And I think playing with DT has helped expand all of those band's fanbases as a direct result. I am hoping PROGRESSIVE NATION will continue to do the same thing in offering an audience for more daring and experimental acts that otherwise may not get the mainstream exposure they so rightly deserve."

Joining the bill for this inaugural run is Sweden's legendary OPETH who have been enjoying an ever-growing and expanding audience of their own for many years now. DT's Roadrunner Records label-mates will be ready to unleash their new album come next spring and PROGRESSIVE NATION should be a great launching pad for their next World Tour cycle. Guitarist/Vocalist Mikael Akerfeldt adds: "We're very excited about this upcoming tour with DREAM THEATER. It will be the first tour that we're doing in support of our upcoming record, and also somewhat of a dream come true personally as I've been a fan of theirs for a long time. It's quite intimidating to be on the bill with such amazing musicians but obviously we'll try and give them a run for their money and pull out a few nice licks of our own. I guess we'll need to practice a little bit for this....how boring! Yet, I can't wait for this tour to start and I'm sure we'll have a blast with the DT guys as well as together with the other bands on the bill!"

Also on the bill with their unique blend of pop, funk and hard rock is upstate New York's 3 who issued the following statement: "3 is very pleased to announce its participation in the PROGRESSIVE NATION tour. For well over a decade DREAM THEATER has been the vanguard of progressive rock and we are completely psyched to flex with these heavyweights, playing much of our new record "The End is Begun". This package will rock and awe fans everywhere as one of the most important tours of the year. It's a progressive way of music, a progressive way of life....welcome to the PROGRESSIVE NATION tour."

North Carolina's BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME are enjoying rave reviews and critical acclaim for their latest CD "Colors" and are looking forward to sharing the stage each night with both DREAM THEATER and OPETH. Vocalist/Keyboardist Tommy Rogers comments: "We are very excited to be touring with two bands that have been such an integral part of our musical upbringing. It is a wonderful opportunity to have our music heard by new ears."

DREAM THEATER are currently in the middle of their "Chaos In Motion" World Tour which has already traveled extensively throughout Europe and North America in support of their latest Roadrunner Records CD "Systematic Chaos". The World Tour will continue throughout 2008 hitting Asia, Australia and South America before concluding with PROGRESSIVE NATION returning to North America in April/May 2008.

Portnoy hopes that this first venture of PROGRESSIVE NATION will prove to be a success that can enable himself and DREAM THEATER to continue the package into future years and begin a tradition that musicians and fans alike can count on for quality musicianship and artistic integrity on future tours.

I SO hope that comes close to me. Dream Theater, 3, Between the Buried and Me and Opeth all together? That is like an all star selection to me. I haven't heard much by 3, but what I have heard is pretty good. Opeth is AMAZING, DT, well, I like their stuff, it's a bit repetitive, but if I can see Opeth with them, then I'm in, for sure.

I was checking out gigs to go to on Last.fm, and found that High On Fire, Nightwish, and Nile were the closest bands to me worth seeing.  Too bad they're still too far away. :(
Title: Re: The Music Discussion Thread (No Flaming!)
Post by: Bobbias on January 09, 2008, 05:00:08 PM
Nile is pretty sweet. Nightwish is fail, now that Tarja is gone (and their newer stuff with her sucked as well), and I don't know High On Fire...

They're a stoner metal band, most known for featuring Matt Pike of the former stoner doom legend Sleep.

I hear good things about Nile, and Isis. I'm tempted to listen to them

Also 3 kicks serious ass. I saw them with Porcupine Tree, as I've said about 30 times, and they did pretty well live, but I never realized how badass they were until I picked up their new album, which is just absurdly awesome. Their guitarist is great, it's like flamenco-metal.

I've only got the Sham Mirrors, but god, it's an amazing album. I've done a little reading about the rest of it, and I'm not to keen on black metal, but I think I might give it a shot. It's a bummer they disbanded, they basically oozed awesome.
Title: Re: The Music Discussion Thread (No Flaming!)
Post by: Bobbias on January 11, 2008, 01:21:47 PM
Well, think of the weird symphonic sounds and the sorta epic sound they have, and add black metal to the mix. It comes out as amazing. If you can stand some of the black metal sound, that's probably a great place to start listening to some. If you can find any of it.

Dunno if this has been brought up yet, but I was recently introduced to a band called Animal Collective. It's really weird music, but amazingly good. Sort of glitchy/experimental stuff I think, although I suck at genres. There are lyrics, though, and they're fun and interesting.

GO LISTEN MOFUCKAS
Title: Re: The Music Discussion Thread (No Flaming!)
Post by: Bobbias on January 11, 2008, 09:41:13 PM
A good experiment in music to listen to if you know any of the indie/emo/scene bands is The Sound of Animals Fighting. Each part was recorded completely separately by each singer/artist and put together without any of them knowing what the overall song was supposed to sound like. It is one of those super group things where a whole boatload of people get together for it, sorta like the Avantasia of scene bands. It's pretty good, actually. I really like the music.
Title: Re: The Music Discussion Thread (No Flaming!)
Post by: Ulti on January 11, 2008, 10:00:21 PM
I hear Animal Collective is really good, but it's also the theme music of pretentious twats : |
Title: Re: The Music Discussion Thread (No Flaming!)
Post by: Bobbias on January 11, 2008, 10:45:54 PM
So was Opeth, and likely Dream Theater falls under that as well....
Title: Re: The Music Discussion Thread (No Flaming!)
Post by: Sqthreer! on January 11, 2008, 10:47:08 PM
Well regardless of the twats, it's still really good.

I suggest the song Peacebone on the Strawberry Jam album.
Title: Re: The Music Discussion Thread (No Flaming!)
Post by: Ulti on January 12, 2008, 04:34:52 AM
What, Opeth being pretentious? I mean, prog lends itself to that, just because of the way the genre is, but I've literally overheard a conversation where someone said "Yeah, I tried listening to Animal Collective, and I didn't really like it" and the other guy replied with "Well you just didn't understand it, it's too deep", being serious. That strikes me as pretty silly.
Title: Re: The Music Discussion Thread (No Flaming!)
Post by: Bobbias on January 12, 2008, 08:42:32 PM
The thing is, there are many people who don't get some of the musical experimentation in stuff like that. I mean, The sound of Animals Fighting is really different. Some people would hate it, just because it's so different, but some people just wouldn't understand the fact that nobody knew what the rest of the song would sound like, so that is why each sound is so separate, they were played with no knowledge of what they would be blending with.

And Opeth's fans were known for being EXTREMELY pretentious, not so much now.

Revival!

I've recently gotten into Korean Hip Hop. This stuff is really good. I've been listening to LeeSsang, ClaZziquai (They're not really hip-hop, but a fusion that covers a couple different genres including electronica, acid jazz and house), 1TYM, Crown J, 8eight, and (though they're not hip-hop) AnyBand, which is a supergroup put together by Motorola to market some of their cell phones through music videos who's theme is that cell phones bring people together. AnyBand includes BoA, Xiah Junsu of TVXQ, Tablo of Epik High (another Korean hip-hop artist), and jazz pianist Jin Bora.

Honestly, this stuff is SO much better than western hip-hop. Here are some Youtube vids for whoever wants to find out what this is all about:

8eight - 사랑을 잃고 난 노래하네 (Forget About Love and Sing)


Leessang - Ballerino (Feat. ALI)


1TYM - Hot (뜨거)


Epik High - FAN


[mkTV] My Life (Boom Remix) - CLAZZIQUAI PROJECT (This is a really weird remix, the original is more straight forward lounge + DnB beats. This really reminds of or Orange Lounge)


Anyband - TPL(Talk Play Love) - Eng Sub (Also has korean subs, transliterated)


Crown J - 그녀를 뺏겠습니다 (I Will Take Her Away) MV

Have you checked out my DJ Shadow mix I posted ages ago (in the media forum, I believe)?

It's really awesome if you want to hear a mix between american and african hip-hop and stuff (some of it is more electronic music and stuff, it's a really diverse mix)

It's a really awesome mix.

I've been listening to lots of classical recently (mostly modern wind ensemble stuff). Right now I have on Ravel's arrangement of Mussorgsky's piano piece Pictures at an Exhibition. I love it, but the sax solost on Il Vecchio Castello (second movement of the piece) makes me want to curl up into a ball and cry. I'll send the link if you fellow band geeks want to hear just how bad his tone is.

Sure, lol. And you should list out some names to look for (and maybe info on how hard it is to find that stuff). I'm interested in modern classical music (kinda an oxymoron, but either way.)

Same, I love his stuff. I've been waiting for this CD for quite some time now, and I'm still pondering if I should download it before I decide if I'm buying it.

I also really like that message. It's good to see that some artists understand how things work, and hell, part of the reason I pirate stuff anyway. All those messages to "support the artist" by buying their CDs from some huge corporation who barely gives any royalties to the musician only help the huge companies. To give the artist any money that's actually worth something, you'd need to buy like, 10 copies of the CD. I could care less if most huge labels die, too, because most of those labels are the ones financing the gigantic cauldron of crap they call pop music, and shoving it down our throats. I for one could care less if the whole music industry became a very grassroots system, because then the artists who deserve recognition could get recognition, instead of the pop music that is everywhere because those labels have boatloads of cash to throw around.

I also like that all of Alphabasic's CDs are made from recycled material. I have to give him props for that.

Five hours of music that is mostly music from the three Matrix movies will not cut it :(

well, if you want to discover electronic music without having to download a lot of stuff you don't know, try going to http://di.fm and listening to their streams. Don't close it if you don't like whatever's currently playing, either, si through and listen for maybe 30 or 40 minutes unless you know you really aren't going to be interested in that station. They have 21(IIRC) different stations, all playing different genres of electronic music.

The other place to discover new music is pandora.com. Pandora will play music that is "technically" similar to what you give it as a starting point (tell if you like daft punk, and it finds music with similarities to daft punk).

It's much easier to give you more music to look for if you have more to give us :/ Or even a specific genre you're looking for.

I could say I like Deep Purple and Daft Punk, and that would be completely true, but that's nowhere near giving you an idea of the different types of music I listen to.

Last.fm is a great tool as well. Picking a band, checking out the bands with similar taggings, and seeing what other people who listen to that band like as well all are really good ways to find new music you could potentially like. Plus, if you download a band's discography, last.fm is generally a pretty good place to find out where to start. I know I have trouble listening to new music that I've downloaded occasionally, just because of sheer volume, and not knowing where to start. First impressions are pretty important for me, so if I pick an album that's crappy, I probably won't enjoy the rest of the band's work nearly as much.

Yeah, I really enjoy that album, but it's not really a great example of breakcore, if you ask me. It's really badass and all, but it's not typical of the genre, if you ask me.
Title: Re: The Music Discussion Thread (No Flaming!)
Post by: Bobbias on March 05, 2008, 02:31:14 AM
True, it's not typical of breakcore, but that doesn't mean that it can't be considered one of the best. Actually, that is exactly why it is one of the best. Breakcore is an experimental genre by definition. To be able to fuse other genres with breakcore in such a way that you create a breakcore oriented album that is easier to listen to and still true to the experimental and unique nature of breakcore is what sets that album and vsnares in general, apart from the rest of the scene.

Listen to Drumcorps, and you'll hear something else that isn't typical of breakcore. He uses live guitar, as well as chopped up grindcore/hardcore music and fuses that into breakcore. That's also atypical, but very good stuff. Still a bit harsher than Rossz Csillag allat sz
Title: Re: The Music Discussion Thread (No Flaming!)
Post by: Ulti on March 05, 2008, 11:43:52 PM
Well, I kind of enjoy Breakcore for the harshness, but that sounds a lot like Kid606, who takes a lot of ragga and dance samples, and goes to town with them. I just think it's not an amazing representation of the genre. I'm going to have to look up this Drumcorps business, though. I'll reply an actual like, retort to your post later though, because I've not got the time to formulate a proper argument right now :U

I've been getting into post-rock and stuff lately though. That, and some hardcore/metalcore. I'm listening to Xiu Xiu (pronounced Shoe Shoe) right now. It's pretty neat. It's some weird music, but really awesome. They definitely have some weird electronic influences.

Here's something to illustrate how unique they are. Oh, and it's got awesome graphics too :P

Also: Mute Math is seriously awesome. I love this shit:


Seriously, give it a listen. It's very rockish, but it's got a sorta atmospheric feel. Wikipedia says: Their music consists of many elements such as rock, new wave, electro, psychedelia, and jazz with ambient vocals.

I love this stuff so much....

Heh.

On a sorta related note, I randomly looked up "keytar" on Wikipedia tonight and it had a picture of the Mute Math frontman playing a keytar.  A coincidence like that is probably some sort of sign for me to start listening to them or whatever. :P

The problem with pumping the number up too high is that if there are too many long-winded posts (lol bobbias <3) it quickly gets tedious scrolling through them.  Forget about image threads -- going through those would be hell.

Also, a bit more of a selfish reason is that too many posts per page would be hell for me when I start visiting the site on my BlackBerry (whenever I get the darn thing, that is).

as much as the vicious delicious album has songs i loathe(in front of me, and artillery make me cringe), the song heavyweight is a masterpiece.  audio euphoria, eargasm, ect.

that, and i haven't really listened to anything that wasn't mf doom for a while, gotta mix it up son!

i do appreciate how IM is experimenting with their sound, while still keeping straight psytrance tracks in their albums to keep everybody happy.  it allows them to make new sounds(some good(converting vegetarians!), some bad(in front of me, im looking at you!), that's what experimentation is) while keeping the core audience interested.

also the electric synth guitar sound they do is beyond awesome.

*edit* man i can't wait till i get an mp3 player, working out to this shit would highly motivate me to get my ass in shape.

So are the vast majority of goregrind vocals, and they're still good!  Though Danni probably isn't that good live; goregrind bands can replace the pitch-shifted vocals with growls but CoF can't really do that....  Definitely agree on the lyrics, dark gothic erotica ftw.

And in my last post, I may have made it seem like I was implying that I dislike gothic metal, but that is far from the truth.

Ah, yeah, I've heard that before.

Also, on the topic of Avant-Garde musics, I've basically exhausted the internet's supply of prog metal, so that's basically a natural progression. The main difference I'd say is mostly the fact that Avant-Garde music tends not to be as technically demanding, it focuses more on just being weird. Although it's not to say there's any lack of awesome guitar playin'. It's just that they'll toss in a sax solo out of the blue or something.
Title: Re: The Music Discussion Thread (No Flaming!)
Post by: Bobbias on March 31, 2008, 07:26:54 PM
Well, depends on what sort of Avant-Garde music you're talking about. Try to get some Naked City, and listen to that. A lot of their stuff is fairly technically demanding, but incredibly insane at the same time.

Noord DJ- Art of Hardstyle 003

i have no idea where to find anything on the artist, or where to get this art of hardstyle, but i need it.  any help would be appreciated, i heard (listening to) this thing on di.fm, and i can't pull myself away from the computer, its amazing. 

like, i actually have some spare cash, and if i can find a place to get this, its mine.

hell, i need any hardstyle.  i mean, its like the best music genre ever, and i only have jea's life is game album (spectacular album, but doesn't hold a candle to this noord stuff)

yadda yadda, gabber fucked trance, trance had a kid, and it was hardstyle.
Title: Re: The Music Discussion Thread (No Flaming!)
Post by: Bobbias on April 03, 2008, 03:25:28 AM
Just checked the forum, and did a quick check in case it was actually released (discogs.com is your best friend for finding out releases and such). Looks like NOOD DJ is just a kid in a basement making mixes on his computer (or doing it live and recording it, either way). This is not a commercial mix, and unless someone happened to be running a stream ripper while it was playing, your best bet is to email NOORD and ask him if you can get the mix. Most DJs don't mind people asking, and will usually have a website where they can host stuff.

As I said, it looks like he simply sent an email to di with the mix and get it played on the channel (fairly easy to do if it's a good mix).

The link to email him through his di profile is here: http://forums.di.fm/sendmessage.php?do=mailmember&u=95985
Or you can PM him on the forum here: http://forums.di.fm/private.php?do=newpm&u=95985

I'm not sure on the timeline when Hardstyle appeared, but I believe that it evolved very shortly after, or even more or less at the same time. It's not like Trance and Gabber were combined into this. I think it took it's cues from Hardcore and Gabber, as opposed to Trance and Gabber. In fact, a number of Hardcore producers dip into Hardstyle now and again. (In the case of Scott Brown, most of his Hardcore stuff sounds like Hardstyle anyway, lol.)

Anyway, yeah, Hardstyle is more melodic than Gabber, because of the influences from Hardcore. That's one thing I love about Hardstyle. People always complain about melodic Gabber on the di Gabber forum, but I absolutely love it, so Hardstyle fits me a bit better than Gabber.

Also, I love jea's stuff so much more than most of the DJ Sharpnel stuff (except the insanely awesome melodic stuff, like Moonearth, and all that). Except for some of the classic Gabber (listen to the thunderdome CDs, and you'll hear what I mean), I don't like Gabber that isn't at least somewhat melodic. Most of Sharpnel's stuff is a bit sparse for me (or a bit weird sounding. Just listen to the one that uses the Puchi Puuri Yuushi theme sped up, the song sounds totally out of place.)

That, and most of Sharpnel's stuff just sounds the same to me (except the insanely badass melodic stuff.)

There needs to be more Trancecore/Hard Trance/Melodic Hardstyle/whatever you want to call these styles. Stuff like Shiki's Air, and Sharpnel's Moonearth, and all that. It's such a stupidly small genre that is extremely well suited to Stepmania (which is about the only place I discover any of that stuff at all.)

Listening to all the VSnares albums and EPs and whatnot.

So far i've listened to about 13 of them including an hour and a half long mix. I would say Chocolate Wheelchair album is my favorite so far. I listened to Huge Chrome Cylinder Box Unfolding earlier today, but didn't care for most of it.

Right now i'm listening to 4 adaptations of Rossz Csillag. For those who haven't heard it, it's basically a jazzy rendition of 6 songs (two of the songs are combined) from Rossz Csillag. Its pretty cool and if you can find it check it out, just keep in mind it has nothing to do with breakcore.

After listening, I'm not quite sure what to think. It's kinda sparse. I like the rhythms and such in the drums, but it's too sparse for my liking. I would like to hear more by Hecate though, as sometimes when 2 people get together for CDs like that, it becomes something different than either of them would release.

also, hilarity while i was listing to the Dirty South Rap samples

Heh, I take it the singer was Megumi Hayashibara? lol. As far as jpop goes, she's one of my favourite singers. (not that I listen to jpop any more, but either way). You might like Happy Hardcore. Stuff by Dune, Visa, and Bang! is practically eurobeat + better music.

Ishkur's Guide To Electronic Music is considered a bible to people who listen to Electronic Music, lol.

Some of my favourite styles of music I consider fun, but absolutely terrible are: Italo-disco, Ghetto Tech/Anything under Booty Bass,

My favourite music that I consider actual good music: Trancecore, Every Gabber style in there, Electro/Electro Funk, Big Beat, Acid/Funky/Chemical breaks, Hip Hop/Turntablism/East And West Coast/Progressive and Abstract Hip Hop. Ragga and pretty much the entire jungle page minus Jump Up (Especially Oldschool. That stuff kicks SERIOUS ass). Well, hell, everything in the Hardcore page minus Gabber House and Happy Gabber and New Beat. Downtempo (everything on that page), Techno (minus latin), I only like a few Trance Genres though: Acid, the Psy group, Symphonic Trance (absolutely LOVE Brainbug), Hard Dance minus NRG, and as for House: Everything minus Anthem, Booty, Stupid, Speed Garage, Epic, Brit and Dark.

I've covered the entire Guide now. And I listen to and like a rather large majority of it, lol. Yay for weird music tastes.

Title: Re: The Music Discussion Thread (No Flaming!)
Post by: Bobbias on April 24, 2008, 11:09:09 PM
Because that guy is retarded, lol.

As far as I see it, shitcore is a subgenre of speedcore.

Sharpnel is speedcore? Come on. First off, if you're going to call Sharpnel anything, it's Hardrave (since that's what Sharpnel and all the others refer to their style as) and it's more closely related to Gabber and Happy Hardcore than Speedcore (by quite a bit, really). Actually, Sharpnel's sound is pretty much a combination of Gabber and the oldschool Rave music that came before the current wave of Happy Hardcore (listen to Acen (http://youtube.com/watch?v=ymMzjKKRefw) to get a good idea of what I'm talking about). They've got the sped up breakbeats + high pitched vocals that characterize HHC and oldschool Rave, they've got the speed and distorted drums and such that are borrowed from Gabber. Honestly, Hardrave is a pretty good definition of Sharpnel's sound.

Plus, I've got nothing better to do, so why not ague about genres when I've got a solid explanation for my definition?

thanks mortified.

also, shitcore subgenre of speedcore, a subgenre of _____, a subgenre of metal. "shit" is a very vague term, and can't be labelled into a folder called "speed".
there's a lot of shit punk shit out there, and some of it is pretty slow.  but if it's slow does that mean it's slow punk sihtcore? Now that's just getting fucking ridiculous. the "shit" in shitcore implies taste by the user, and does not necessarily reflect a true or valid classification of the style of music. Furthermore, Tapatio is hot sauce but not all hot sauce is Tapatio. ( :[ ) likewise with many so-called genres.

i love it when people invent genre names

srsly. I lol'd.

but regardless of anything I previously mentioned as it is completely irrelevant and not worthy of noting, nor time to consider, I wouldn't consider "Into the Inferno" as being in any genre. Basically, It was someone with their buddies fucking around with a music sample, crazily fucking up the sound and inserting random shit to a point where it was nearly beyond any sort of musical classification (rhythm may not always be music). BUT! If I haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad to pick a name, I'd label it as "WTF".

Also, the genre "Alternative" pisses me off. Alternative, what? Alternative means it's contrary, or a secondary or different characteristic. So, Alternative music is contrary to.. Popular music? Rap? Rock? What? How is something that is really classified as "Different" somehow mean it's a rock genre? Alternative rock, eh? So de we have "Alternative Rap"? "Alternative Electronica"?

Lame sauce.

Good to know I'm not the only one who thinks alternative is not a legitimate charactarization for music. I think it's a cheap way out of describing a group. Just saying they're alternative doesn't mean anything. It should imply that it's listened to in lieu of something else, but I'm pretty sure there's no such thing as straight-forward rock anymore, with the exception of Nickleback, which isn't even music. Srsly. >: |

Sure, most people wouldn't want to listen to that stuff, and some of them would likely say it isn't even music. But the way I see things, anything purposely put together for listening is music. It may be music I don't like, but it's still music. I mean, listen to John Cage's 4'33" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4%E2%80%B233%E2%80%B3). It's 4 and a half minutes of silence, and yet it's accepted by the majority to still be music.

People bitch about genres, and music classifications and such, but nobody seems to realize that they're lumping things into "music" and not music. I still lump things into that category, but I'm more open about it. I put anything that was recorded for the purpose of me listening to it as music (unless it's simply talking, and such, like podcasts, and that sort of thing). I mean, by nearly everyone's normal definition of music, Merzbow isn't music. By most people's definition, Field Recordings aren't music. But I see both of those as being perfectly legitimate forms of music.

Well, not as many as you'd think Ishkur's guide covers rap, since rap was spawned form the sampling culture of hip-hop that rose up from the DJs.

Post by: Ulti on April 28, 2008, 04:55:46 AM
Yeah, in all honesty, I was under the impression that there really aren't that many subgenre's of rap. It's not like metal or electronica, where every other band is in a new genre.
Title: Re: The Music Discussion Thread (No Flaming!)
Post by: Bobbias on April 28, 2008, 01:12:02 PM
Well, it's more of a timeline really: There's the oldschool Hip-Hop, like Grandmaster Flash and such, then there was east and west coast rap, east coast was kinda silly, and stuff, while west coast rap was harder and grittier, stuff like NWA and such, There's "Progressive Hop" as Ishkur calls it (AKA Underground or Alternative hip-hop) and that's stuff like the Black Eyed Peas, Del, the Funkee Homosapien, there's Abstract/Experimental hip-hop, such as DJ Food and Coldcut, there's G-Funk, which was created by Dr. Dre, and is west coast gangsta rap, and now there's full on Gangsta rap, which is pretty much the entire rap industry now.

It may not be like metal where genres are more like adjectives, and can be added and subtracted and used as influences, but are more like time periods, and mentalities. The east coast/west coast stuff was going on in around the mid to late 80's and early 90's, then came g-funk, which became wildly popular for about 5 years in the mid 90's, and after that, Gangsta rap took hold and hasn't dropped out yet (though it seems to me like everyone's finally getting to the point where they don't care about what 50-cent is doing. So maybe in another couple years or so we'll see more alternative stuff breaking through. The Black Eyed Peas certainly paved the road for more Alternative Hip-hop to break through, and the Gorillaz have always had a good following, so who knows, maybe the 2010's will be dominated by Alternative/Progressive Hip-hop.)

Well, my "relationship" with Rap started out back in about grade 6, or 5, something like that. About the time that Eminem came out with My Name Is. We'd had a school dance and I heard the song, I didn't know it before then, but some of my friends knew it and were into it. I liked Eminem, and listened to some of his other stuff, not much, but I knew a couple songs. Slowly from then, I began to listen to more Eminem. I ended up owning The Eminem Show and listening to that CD. Well, by then, I knew more of the music, since it was dominating the pop culture at the time, but I never got too much into it. Since then, I've been introduced to stuff like the Black Eyed Peas, Del, The Funkee Homosapien, Dr Octagon (Anyone ever play the old skateboarding game Grind Session? His track Blue Flowers was on there, and it kicks SERIOUS ass), and a whole boatload of other stuff. I've listened to Necro, Immortal Technique, and Jedi Mind Tricks, all awesome.

I've always liked the oldschool stuff, both East and West coast, really. East coast was all about using rap as a form of music and stuff, expressing yourself (Express Yourself!), and in general being however you wanted to be, and west coast was gritty, about the streets, crime, and how things were. It wasn't there to promote hate, or to glorify guns, bling, and smackin your bitch up. It was about how things really happened. It was by black people growing up in the ghetto, for black people growing up in the ghetto.

Then, G-Funk. That stuff was alright. It was getting worse, but Dr. Dre was a damn good producer, and musically and such, rap was still pretty good. It was evolving, and becoming more polished, but at the same time, it held true to it's roots, and even though it was a bit more gangsta oriented, it was still pretty close to the older stuff.

Up until then, rap was good. Then it went downhill REAL fast. Rappers took that Gangster mentality and ran with it. Instead of getting stuff like 2 Pac's Changes and Eminen's Stan, we're getting stuff like 50-cent and Chamillionare, or however the fuck you spell that. By this point, I've come to completely hate commercial rap.

Which reminds me, I need to download some Eminem.

I'm not a huge fan of their return to their older, more death-metalish sound. I mean, the guitar work is good, but I just don't like the drums being so straightforward. The new guy's a hell of a drummer, but I still prefer the albums Damnation and Deliverance, Blackwater Park and Ghost Reveries. I loved the jazzy vibe and the overall feel. I really loved how they weren't afraid to make acoustic songs, or songs that by themselves wouldn't even be death metal.

So, apparently The Black Mages released a third album in march. I've got a hold of it, and it pretty wicked. If you liked their other stuff, definitely check this out. The first track is a WICKED remix of the FF7 Bombing Mission theme.

Oh, and if you guys haven't listened to them, try to listen to Naked City. Naked city is a Grindcore/Free-jazz/Avant-garde monster created by John Zorn. I'd suggest listening to the album Grand Guignol. It begins with a weird 17 minute piece, and then has a metric fuckton of very short (mostly under a minute) tracks that are the very definition of breaking genres. They will move from a classic blues riff into a screaming saxophone solo over top of genuine grindcore, and switch to funky jazz overlaid with the screeching/yelling that comprises the vocals on this album. It's fascinating how they can mash so many genres into such a short time, and do it well. It's certainly not for the weak hearted, but for someone willing to give it a listen and actually stick with it for a bit will find that the idea, if not the music itself, is absolutely groundbreaking. Some people will never be able to listen to this, in fact, practically nobody can likely listen to this and actually enjoy it, but for the couple freaks of nature (myself included) who enjoy this album, it's an absolutely amazing album.
After listening to that, check out Absinthe / Leng Tch'e. Leng Tch'e is 31:38 minutes of doom metal inspired slow riffs, culminating in what may well be the most faithful musical representation of torture I've ever heard. About 15 minutes in, Zorn's Sax makes an appearance, bringing the song to what feels like a climax, after the 15 minutes of waiting. Then, about a minute later, the vocals come in. After that, all hell seems to break loose, or at least, the torture begins. The vocals and sax mix together to create a feeling like you're listening to the soundtrack of torture, as the song itself never seems to end, and the pained vocals and sax honestly sound like someone screaming in agony.
Leng Tch'e has to be one of the most amazing pieces of music I've ever heard. It's like taking doom metal, and turning it into what it was truly meant to be.

The vocals on Naked City albums are provided by Yamatsuka Eye, of the japanese band Boredoms.

Has anyone here ever heard of a band called Adam Green? It's really nice and pleasant-sounding music, but the lyrics are fuckin' WEIRD. Check out the lyrics for one of the songs I like in particular:

"There's no wrong way to fuck a girl with no legs,
Just tell her you love her as she's crawling away.
There's no wrong way to fuck a bitch with no faith,
Now you'll never be sad again.

Loving you are the two best things in a world that's skipping town,
Reaching, blind, into the deepest mouth in the brownest place around.

There's something amiss in her cum-stained lips,
So I get the first kiss,
Before she takes the last bite.

Genital outlaws in a positive way,
And in everything they will too.

Getting strangled by the junkie priest as the boys get stoned in school,
There's a knock at the door and your parents come in,
They thought you were a different girl.

So if you're alone when your parents aren't home,
And no one can see your incestuous tree,
No need to contain what the sparrows can say,
Now you'll never be sad again."

Seriously, I hella love it when people make up genres like others know what the fuck it is. lol "alternative." and fuck "speedcore" What makes something speedcore? Fast? Couldn't some Mozart then be considered "speedcore?" Or does "speedcore" require metal? Ok, so why not just call it fast metal? Not speed metal, that's stupid. The word "speed" has no indication of whether it's actually fast or slow. Just because something is labelled "speed(y)" doesn't mean it's fast, just that it has speed. Perhaps slow speed. And all music must have some sort of speed, rhythm/beats/notes(/OH SHIT YOU CAUGHT ME BEING PC*) in a timeframe is speed. There's a place nearby called "Speedy lube" or some shit. Well, fuck speedy, give me some DONE. GET ME SOME MOTHER FUCKING GTFO.

Title: Re: The Music Discussion Thread (No Flaming!)
Post by: Bobbias on May 29, 2008, 08:17:27 AM
I have a dualist approach to genres and music.

The way I see it, genres are only there to help describe the general aspects of the sound of a band, mostly for the benefit of those who do not know what the band sounds like. It's easier to say "well, Kalmah is essentially Gothenberg metal influenced by thrash with harsh vocals." then "Kalmah sounds like vocals from band x, guitar that's fast, like band y, with riffs and leads sounding like bands z and w."

I use genres because I believe that you can classify many aspects of a band's sound, making it easier to communicate the abstract aspects, such as how the riffs are written, how the vocals sound, how the guitar sounds, how the leads sound, how the drumming is, etc. etc. etc.than manually describing each of them. It also tends to give people a better mental idea of how they sound than manually describing it.

I also see genres as mutable, and able to modify eachother. Like saying band X combines Brutal Death Metal with Power Metal type leads, and a combination of both Power Metal and Brutal Death Metal vocals. If they are predominantly Brutal Death Metal that incorporates parts of Power Metal, then they would be classified as Brutal Death Metal influenced by Power metal, etc.

Take the example of Electrogrind. Electrogrind is a new type of Grindcore that was created by taking Grindcore music and adding in some electronic music sections and such into the mix. It is much closer to Grindcore, so it would never be accepted as being considered a purely electronic genre, it's a fusion genre that originated with Grindcore and expanded the Grindcore sound to include electronic sounds as well. (listen to anything by Genghis Tron for an example of Electrogrind.)

But the second aspect of my view on genres is this: I don't want anyone let genres get in the way of listening to music. I'm guilty of it at times. But I try not to.
I will listen to pretty much anything once, to see if I enjoy it. Example: I always go on huge rants about how pop music blows enormous chunks. However, I like quite a bit of music by Lily Allen, Christina Agulera, Feist (although she's kinda indie pop) and a couple others. The part that makes me hate so much pop is the fact that for the most part, the music is designed not with music itself in mind, but with how well it will sell in mind. That paradigm generally leads to music that is not good sounding to me, and sounds too plain, and overproduced. I prefer bands/artists who write their music for the creative reasons, and not simply money. They don't care if it sells well or not, and they're just doing it for their own reasons. Black Metal is an extreme example of that: They go out of their way to make their music sound like ass, to be obscure, and to do whatever they fuck they want (burning churches and such). Sure, I still hate some Black Metal, but at least I can respect them for writing music for themselves.

I'd go into an even longer rant, but I'm fucking dead tired. disregard any typos or shit in here. I just worked 8 hours and I've only had 1 hour sleep or between now and 11 PM 2 nights ago, so I fucking need to sleep.

i mean, i have no problems with basic genres like "drum and bass" "gabber" "old school hip hop"

when it gets to say "FORKTRONICA" and this may not count but its a genre so retarded it does count "SPEEDBASS" thats just crossing the line

but im not going out of my way to "properly" label a specific piece of music i heard.  if it sounds to me like hardstyle, ill fucking call it hardstyle.  which is why im not hard on people going "ohh yea thats the techno song i heard"  because they don't fucking care, they like the music, whats it matter if they don't know EXACTLY WHAT IT IS.

The thing that bothers me is that "Techno" is NOT THE FUCKING OVERALL LABEL TO CALL ELECTRONIC FUCKING MUSIC!

Do you call Metal Rock because that's what it came from? No, if you did, anyone who listens to metal would call you a fucking retard. Do you call Rock Country, or Blues, because that's where IT came from? No, you'd get called retarded again. Then don't call Electronic Music/EDM(The 2 Accepted global terms!) Techno. It's common fucking sense here, Trance != Techno. It came from it, Techno is what Trance evolved from, but Just like Metal != Rock, and Rock != Blues or Country, the same holds true with Electronic Music.

If someone called Nujabes rap, they would also deserve to be called a Retard, because he CLEARLY does NOT rap. He produces Hip-hop music.

If you're going to use a genre name to describe something, USE THE RIGHT FUCKING NAME.

To reiterate what vlad said, people don't give a damn about the genre. That's why they don't use the right one. There's no need to take it personal when someone doesn't study music genres and calls Squarepusher "techno" or whatever. They simply do not know, and probably don't really want to know. They're not stupid, they're uneducated, which is perfectly fine.

I agree with vlad, genre specifics is kinda meh. they're there so you and others know wtf kind of music it is, not to classify it. As much as I kinda don't like genres, they're kinda essential (like boobies pointed out earlier), so damned if ya do, damned if ya don't. For me, being able to put Artist X into Genre Y only means they just aren't being creative. rofl. but yeah oh well.

Title: Re: The Music Discussion Thread (No Flaming!)
Post by: Bobbias on May 30, 2008, 06:12:44 AM
Nice to see that someone else appreciates stuff like Genghis Tron.

My whole point is that if you're listening to music, and you call it Techno when it is definitely not, that is when I get more pissed off. If you're listening to it, and like it, and are a normal person (IE. one who does use genres in normal ways, such as differentiating heavy metal from death metal, or rock from country) you should at least learn what genre that song IS. Of course, it doesn't help when everything remotely electronic on the internet is labeled as Techno by everyone except the people who are insanely into EDM.

The whole aspect is that Techno is the not the same as Metal or Country, or Jazz, oar any of that. There are very highly defined limits as to what actual Techno is, and the blanket term for electronic music is, well, EDM or Electronic Music, NOT Techno.

The part that bothers me is that they are not using the right blanket term, and are calling music that definitely is not Techno, Techno.

It's like saying Cannibal Corpse is rock, just because if you trace metal back, it eventually comes back to Rock. It's just plain fucking wrong. Metal genres are not rock, just the same as the fact that not all Electronic Music genres are Techno.

Fuck, if you're going to call any type of music they make nowdays Techno, call House that, because House is the closest relative to Techno, but Trance, DnB/Jungle, and all the other types of EDM are NOT Techno.

And frankly, it doesn't take much of a brain to realize that EDM != Techno, and to make the decision to call it Electronic music.

His comments are entertaining and the music samples are nice.  I definitely don't go there to learn about genres.  I don't want my head to asplode, after all. :P

It's a fun way to see how electronic music evolved over the past 60 years.

That's true, the one big thing that you get from the whole thing is how the music evolved. I love how he organized it, showing all the relationships from genre to genre. I don't mind people being at least somewhat vague about things (like saying something house when it's some random sub-genre), but what bugs me the most is people using Techno as the blanket term when it isn't. I hate seeing stuff like "song X (techno remix)" when I don't think I've ever once heard a remix of a song that is actually Techno. 99% of those remixes are some form of trance, probably falling somewhere between Arena Trance, and Epic Trance.

so under "reccomended" videos in the new youtube page thing there was a WoW video of a paladin tanking 3 heroic bosses at the same time.

while it was a cool video, the music was awesome, and the video creator linked his site, which had a download of the song (which presumably he made)

http://www.modenstudios.com/atraira/Soundtracks/Kitten%20Rescue!/she_nebula.mp3

its like glitch/8-bit and its awesome

I've been listening to Hammerhead, the preview song for The Offspring's latest album.

Not sure how many of you guys are Offspring fans, but to those who are: is it just me or does this sound like a mixture of Ignition era attitude and Americana/Conspiracy of One polish?  I don't know how the rest of the CD is since I haven't bought it (yet) but I've been really digging this track.

Offspring

I got it a while ago; it's nice but it's no Smash or Americana.  I've been waiting for them to make a comeback but I don't think this album is gonna cut it.

BTW, I'm in to all genres except country.  It works out well because whenever I meet someone who says they like all music I make them listen to my grindcore collection until they apologize.

Anyone have the new Weezer album?  Pork and Beans is of course amazing but I've heard the rest of it isn't that good.

Am I the only one who doesn't care much for Smash?  It's an okay album, but the only songs that really stand out to me are Nitro and Smash.

Ignition is probably my personal favorite, with Ixnay and Americana tied for second.

I actually like The Offspring, despite hating any other pop-punk band with a burning passion.  They just sound different, and better, somehow.  Hammerhead is an ok song, but I just don't find it as interesting as other stuff they've done.  Anyway, Smash > Ignition > Ixnay On The Hombre > The Offspring > Americana > Conspiracy Of One > Splinter

So, I went back and started listening to Kamelot again. I forgot how absolutely amazing they are. I mean, how many bands can pull off concept albums that actually use certain themes over (sorta the way a lot of FF music uses the same theme in multiple songs on occasion, but it's not like they're the same song, just remixed) and still come off as having absolutely astounding music writing skills? They are absurdly skilled (they don't show off, but just listen to how perfectly times things are, and how wicked the solos are). Roy Khan is an absurdly underrated singer.

I could go on, but this is long enough. Fuck, I love Kamelot.

No love for their self titled album? I loved that one, probably my favorite, with Americana and conspiracy of one secound. I've really REALLY been out of the loop for music. I guess no pirating and no money will do that. Hell, my friend just told me NIN came out with like 4 CDs after with teeth.

But Offspring is more grunge than pop-punk. Weren't they basically one of the bigger grunge bands of the 90s along with Nirvana and Pearl Jam?

Anyways I discovered The Raconteurs. I first though they would be some wannabe retro band that can't play for shit like Franz Ferdinand, but they're actually pretty good.
 
Many Shades of Black (you've probably heard this song):


Title: Re: The Music Discussion Thread (No Flaming!)
Post by: Bobbias on July 18, 2008, 05:25:24 AM
The Raconteurs is an amazing band. They have such a great sound.

Steady As She Goes - A wicked track, and their first single.


Crazy (them playing a cover of the Gnarles Barkley song), yep, they actually covered that track :P


At first, I wasn't a very big fan of jack white, but after stuff like Steady As She Goes and pretty much the entire CD Icky Thump, I've really come to respect him.

The White Stripes - You Don't Know What Love Is (You Just Do As You're Told) - Seriously, this track is absolutely amazing. Just listen to the guitar work, especially the solo. The solo in this track is absolutely amazing.

Post by: Bobbias on July 18, 2008, 05:52:21 AM
Why? Musically, it's probably 20 times better than any other CD they've released. I went from thinking "wow, this shit is boring. Yeah, Jack can write some sorta catchy shit, but it's just so boring, I'd rather listen to Drone than this :/" to "Ok, wow, I now actually have respect for Jack, not only can he write shit that's catchy, he can write stuff that is actually interesting. He went from boring, to damn near revolutionary."

I'd honestly MUCH prefer to listen to Icky thump than well, pretty much all the rock that's currently being made. Crap like 3 Doors Down, Coldplay, Nickleback, and all that other boring ass "Modern Rock" crap.

I think Spectere and I had this conversation while on a CMU/NPCH trip before we picked up Jupi Chan (Correct me if I am wrong Spectere).

It was more along the lines of "Mainstream" music.
It's shit. Think about it has gone down hill in the last 15 years.  I mean I have to either listen to stuff thats 20 years old (which I like to no end) or I listen to foreign music.  Don't get me wrong the stuff that comes out of Sweeden and Germany kicks ass (Scott Brown from the UK is pretty damn good as well).  It's the fact that other people who over hear to what I listen to think its sounds stupid.  Well I am sorry that Machinae Supremacy is better then your POS Mainstream music.  I like them.  They are a really good group.    I would listen to more "American" music but the genres I like are either small groups of people like it and it is underground stuff and it's hard to get a hold of that music or it is from over seas. 

Sorry if I didn't make a vaild point but you can see my general view point.
Title: Re: The Music Discussion Thread (No Flaming!)
Post by: Bobbias on July 19, 2008, 08:48:43 AM
Well, I totally agree that mainstream music is, for the most part, absolute shit.

I listen to everything (and I do mean EVERYTHING. None of this "all genres of metal, some electronic music, and maybe the occasional bit of hardcore or jazz", I mean I listen to all that, and much more (drum and bass, Breakcore, Jazz, Swing, Old Country, Classic Rock, pretty much every genre of metal, noise rock, hardcore (Bring me The Horizon and stuff), metalcore, hip-hop/rap (only the underground/non-commercial stuff), indie, folk, and a whole bunch of crap I can't think of)), and 95% of it isn't mainstream. I do listen to the occasional bit of mainstream (hey, I actually like a lot of Rihana's music), but I mostly prefer stuff that actually has musical talent.

Sabrepulse

I'm not much of a fan of his stuff, aside from the remix of As Vivid As Possible. That track, however, makes up for the fact that I don't really like his other stuff.

If anyone's into chiptunes, definitely check out 8bitpeoples.com. Tons of free downloads. I highly suggest Nullsleep, Random, Vim, x|k, and Xinon (!!). I haven't downloaded stuff from everyone there though, so I could have missed a couple of great artists.

Also, look for albums released by the Ay Riders, they've made some pretty wicked remixes.

-Run to the Light

It's pretty damn hard to find much by these guys on youtube, but those tracks give you some idea of what they sound like. I own a copy of their album The Skull (well, it's the re-release with the bonus "DVD" of shitty oldschool VHS camcorder footage of them).

Doublepost for awesome bands I recently discovered or re-downloaded:


Diablo Swing Orchestra - Balrog Boogie

This is what happens when a bunch of guys who are multi-instrumentalists and ridiculously talented play a blend of swing, orchestral/opera and metal. Mindblowingly amazing.

Earth - Ouroboros is Broken
http://ca.youtube.com/watch?v=WrclNyck6HY
Cool Drone Doom band. Their older stuff is more real drone, and their newer stuff, like this, is flavored with some weird country guitar style, despite the fact that it's still sludgy and slow as fuck. Definitely a weird band, lol.
Earth - Engine of Doom
http://ca.youtube.com/watch?v=qcLic3qg-90&feature=related
This gives you an idea of how weird they can be in their newer stuff.

Polkadot Cadaver - Chloroform Girl

Wicked band, the successor of Dog Fashion Disco, and just as wicked.

Mushroomhead Save Us & Embrace The Ending
http://ca.youtube.com/watch?v=ksPgKn3XWy4
Mushroomhead supposedly originated the idea of using masks, and has had an off and on rivalry with slipknot because of it, but they are NOTHING like slipknot musically. Not to mention their masks are cooler than slipknot's. Jason Popson (one of the vocalists) is awesome (I'm not sure if he songs on that song or not, though, not sure which album it's on).

The Alter Boys - Famine Ghost
http://ca.youtube.com/watch?v=5M_FUeJsDY8
Another Jason Popson project, wicked stuff. Listen to the whole track, because it has some weird sections, like a surf rock/jazz breakdown with spoken vocals. Not to be confused with all the christian music that comes up on youtube.

Dog Fashion Disco - Acid Memoirs
http://ca.youtube.com/watch?v=PQFMY9cyzGo&feature=related
The name says it all, this is a humorous song about a first acid trip. If you like Mr. Bungle or any of that weird stuff, this is something you'll definitely love.

Mr. Bungle- Pink Cigarette
http://ca.youtube.com/watch?v=TwWQYg7aS5o&feature=PlayList&p=71CDDB23C374CE45&playnext=1&index=5
Ok, this is a fan made video, but honestly, I am REALLY impressed. Without having heard this song before, I'd have to say that the video fits perfectly, and it was well done, unlike 99% of the fanmade stuff on youtube. Props to the guy who made it.

I've got more, but I'm getting tired, so I'll leave it at this.

Also I find it incredibly hard to find time to download anything (can't leave it on during the day and I stay up all night as you can see) and I still have a bunch of bands and CD's a want.

Also boobies, my friend used to listen to mushroom head, I'll relook them up.

Also why is Lil' Wayne so popular? His voice is annoying and he constantly mumbles, that and he has that annoying little laugh that he always throws into songs.

Also, I'm getting some pretty cool stuff by putting "technical death metal" as the channel's tag. It's funny, because before I started listening to CoB, I couldn't stand the death metal grunt.

Quo Vadis is a really good Technical Death Metal band from Canada. I recommend you check them out. My favorite song is On the Shores of Ithaka. They've gone through a lot of lineup changes though  :-\.
Title: Re: The Music Discussion Thread (No Flaming!)
Post by: Bobbias on March 07, 2009, 01:50:16 PM
Woo, Quo Vadis is quite good. They're from Quebec.

But yeah, if you hear older Opeth, they are much more traditional death metal. Their first 2 albums had some sections with the 2 quitar harmony, and stuff. But as they started making more stuff and experimenting, they began to really change. However, their recent album Watershed is a return to their old sound, mixing in the sort of jazz influenced stuff from the recent albums with a more traditional approach to the heavy parts.

I have been following Opeth a fair bit.

Also, I forgot to mention that I got to see an Ill Scarlett concert a couple days ago (Tuesday) at my college. They played at the campus bar. That was an awesome show.

At least you used the quotes around techno, lol. I hate when people call electronic music techno. With game soundtracks it's REALLY hard to categorize the music much of the time, but this has elements of breakbeat mixed with the cool instrumentation. And some of it is almost IDM.

Regardless of what you call it, it is a pretty awesome track.

Heavy metal recommendations plox.

I do not like:
screaming/growling [to the point you can't understand them]
shitty thrown together drums/guitar [sounds like a big fucked up mess]
constant bass drum usage
hardcore shredding that requires little to no talent [frequent hammer ons/pull offs and overuse of same scales]

I do like:
technical and different timings using the double kick/whatever
POWER CHORDS
harmony in singing
the new avenged sevenfold stuff. [preferably more stuff like this]
dethklok, probably because of the cartoon. it's not TOO heavy.

Heh, no idea what Breakbeat and IDM are so I just throw it into a vague genre and throw own quotes to get the message across. Quotes really are the best way to be wrong about something without coming across as an ass hat.

As for sneaky. Um, shit, Killswitch? Possibly Sepultura, Fear Factory and Pantera seem to fit the bill but I'm sure you've already heard of everything I've named.

Heh, no idea what Breakbeat and IDM are so I just throw it into a vague genre and throw own quotes to get the message across. Quotes really are the best way to be wrong about something without coming across as an ass hat.

Breakbeat can refer to a specific style of drumming, or a style of electronic music based on it this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sMPlmA0C47o) is a good example of breakbeat drumming, and this (http://www.di.fm/mp3/breaks.pls) is the di.fm breaks channel, which is a good example of breakbeat music (and it's subgenres).

IDM is stuff like Squarepusher, Amon Tobin, Aphex Twin, etc. All that really messed up psychotic electronic stuff.

If you want a great resource for looking up a specific style of electronic music, I highly suggest taking a look at Ishkur's Electronic Music Guide (http://techno.org/electronic-music-guide/). It's highly opinionated about some genres, but it gives you a number of short samples of songs for each genre, and covers nearly every genre of electronic music. It's organized based on the couple major groups of electronic music, and there are some genres that are part of one group, but are linked somehow to another group, and he shows that as well.

Hell, anyone interested in electronic music at all should check it out.

As for Sneaky...

Well, you might like the Alter Boys (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5M_FUeJsDY8). Pretty weird mix of music, but I like them (you really need to hear more than just that song to pass judgement on them).

Or maybe Kalmah (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4jmj_ochRjk) They have some harsh vocals, but they're a unique mix of speed metal and gothenburg style. If you're not sure about that song, please check out Moon of My Nights (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T1NLxoFHU4w). It's easily my favorite song of theirs.

Another band you should check out is Dillinger Escape Plan (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMEYLlDThZU). They are pretty weird, but they've got some awesome music. One song, Black Bubblegum (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MqXVBeEuwLU) Is like their take on a pop song, only with cool guitar work, and weird glitch sounds. You may not like the because of how grindcoreish they are (wikipedia calls them experimental mathcore, lol).

I'm not sure what else to mention. Maybe some Candlemass (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kjRd28TU9CE) (doom metal) or Carcas (Heartwork (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B7lP30tSZF0) or their stuff from Wake Up and Smell the Carcass (songs like edge of Darkness (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DkPa3dj5eoc))). Maybe some Trouble (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bO_pHzDiS0c). Trouble is "White Metal", religious metal, lol. But they do kick major ass.

It's like all I've been listening to for the past six months. I swear to god the Distant and Mechanized Glow of Eastern European Dance Parties EP is like the greatest thing ever.

Actually, all of their EP's are really good. If you can find it, I highly, highly recommend tracking down the Unreleased/Unreleasable compilations, they're great.

Man, 65daysofstatic really does kick ass. I heard Drove Through Ghosts To Get Here in a stepmania pack. I played it immediately, partly because the sample music was cool, and partly because of all the mention of them on here. They're like taking the subdued sensibilities of Godspeed You! Black Emperor, mixing it with Dillinger Escape Plan, and adding a bit of Venetian Snares.

I downloaded their discography, including RMXSCEE, Unreleased Unreleasables, and B-sides and Rarities, as well as Live at Maida Vale and their singles and EPs... I'd say it's a pretty comprehensive discography.

im attempting to do the impossible, figure out a top 5 songs list. i got 4.

Gigi D'Agostino- l'amour toujours (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8kTU_kGB9KA)

tiesto- forever today (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y15gQfRDM9A)

ultrabeat- feel it with me
 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=akqPDHmO1qU)

ultrabeat- feel it with me (Breeze & Styles Remix) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QkA3JWk5w58)  superior mix that i originally heard WAY back when in that there WoW, back when bwl was cool.  it was a nefarian kill video from a dominate guild (nightmares asylum) on my server, and this song was playing.  took me about two years to hunt down the mp3, but fuck, it's fantastic.

sonique/tomcraft- another world (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OuwSLjLtJWo)

no order, save for forever today.  reason being it's the best sounding arrangement of sounds my ears have ever had the pleasure of experiencing, by far.  if my ears could climax, the earth would be flooded with ear semen.

i know i like other genres and whatnot, but fuck, the elite stuff to me, seems to be all trancey.

*edit*

not in the list, but fuck, the song + video = GOOD

Lately I've been getting into a ton of m1dy. He's really handy to have around if you feel unhappy. It just makes you laugh it off. Or anger it off. But anger is better than unhappy. And then if your angry, you listen to something like 'Basscadet' or 'Slip' by Autechre, and you're back into a good mood.

Also, I bought 'Major Tom' by Shiny Toy Guns off iTunes the other day and really enjoy it. Its a nice cover.

Also, Orange Dust, Pendulum, she music, Angina P., most of the 'Voices of the Lifestream' album, 65daysofstatic, Flashbulbs 'Soundtrack to a Vacant Life', L.E.D.'s Denjin K album (both discs because they are both amazing) and a ton others.

I really like electronic music.

Couple cool discoveries/Older stuff I don't think I mentioned:

K'naan - Awesome Canadian-Somali hip-hop artist. (Wikipedia calls him a Poet, Rapper and Musician.)
His most recent CD: Troubadour, has numerous collaborations with an interesting cast of people including Mos Def, Kirk Hammett, Chali 2na and others. I've been loving it quite a bit lately.

Zion I and The Grouch - Heroes In The City Of Dope
Amazing collab between 2 awesome rappers. Wicked production, and really well though out lyrics. Features songs covering a wide variety of subjects, from the stress of touring, to criticizing the digital reliance on cell phones and computers, to the birth of The Grouch's first child. It also features appearances of Mistah F.A.B., Chali 2na of Jurassic 5, Deuce Eclipse, and Esthero. As a side note, the production behind most of the songs on this album, the second half of Zion I, AmpLive has remixed MGMT, Linkin Park, and Radiohead. (he did the remixing for "Plc.4 Mie H

Dillinger Escape plan is amazing. I mean, they have more "accessible" stuff, like Milk Lizard (which sounds like their take on a regular rock song) and Black Bubblegum (their take on a pop song), but even those have some wicked electronic elements, and hardcore stuff.

They're one of those groups that really can't be placed in one genre.

I will admit that the only album I really know is Ire Works, but if that is any indication of their other stuff, that just means I really need to download some of it.

But man, when your associated acts list includes Mike Patton (king of experimental rock), that alone is a sign of being pretty experimental.

Yeah, definitely.  I don't remember which song it was (I think it was on Ire Works) but it literally sounded like a mixture of metal and IDM.

I will admit that the only album I really know is Ire Works, but if that is any indication of their other stuff, that just means I really need to download some of it.

I've listened to Ire Works, the Irony Is a Dead Scene EP, and Miss Machine.  Ire Works and Irony are pretty similar in style (and by that I mean that there is no definite style).  I haven't listened to all of Miss Machine yet, but it seems to be a bit more subdued compared to the other two, leaning more towards a rock/metal format.
Title: Re: The Music Discussion Thread (No Flaming!)
Post by: Bobbias on September 08, 2009, 05:30:22 AM
Ahh, well, after reading about their history a bit, I have a feeling that as you go backwards they become more and more like a typical hardcore band. Though I'm sure they still have a very unique sound.

And if you like that stuff, you might want to check out The Number 12 Looks Like You. They're another crazy-ass mathcore band. No electronic elements in their stuff, but they are practically the definition of mathcore. They're always using bizarre time signatures, switching between different time signatures in the middle of songs, and even writing stuff that sounds off time but is in something common like 4/4 anyway. Their drummer is pure genius.

Apparently wikipedia says "Their music combines elements of Grindcore, Progressive Metal, Hardcore Punk and Jazz." I am inclined to agree with that assessment.

An example of how amazing their drummer is: a drum lesson (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OM833twnldQ) involving a VERY simple setup, showing how fast, and how inventive and unique he is. And there's a Tama Starworks (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s8fa9LcD4SQ) interview/show-off session. Sure, he talks about the drums a bit, but just listen to some of the stuff he does. Also, he did a wicked solo for Horse The Band (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=76cQipnReoM).

Some samples:
My favourite song on their CD Mongrel, Jay Walking Backwards (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nnblrye35YM). Slow intro, then it just explodes. The lyrics are basically recounting a scene as the singer saw some homeless guy get hit by a car, while sitting in the back seat of some other car.

One of the most impressive parts of the album is what my brother and I call the "trashcan solo" in Sleeping With The Fishes, See? (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ETSy3DqoSDU) The solo begins at 2:20.

One of their songs off of the CD before Mongrel, Nuclear.Sad.Nuclear., has an actual music video, and showcases them in some of their catchier moments, as well as breaking into a random weird breakdown. Like a cat (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5edzPI_Po4A) is a pretty good example of how random they can be sticking breakdowns like that in the middle of a song (the breakdown is just after 2 minutes).

I know the opening/endings to Outlaw Star by heart, and all of the vocal songs in Cowboy Bebop.

The ending of Ouran really stuck me with as being amazing, especially after I thought I'd hate the show and ended up loving it so much. See here:


Drastic My Soul from Scryed is another song that sticks with me.

Oh, the opening for Hajime no Ippo.
Ippo is my favorite show/manga of all time and I still remember borrowing the chinese knock-off subbed version from a friend and ending up absolutely mesmerized by the show even though the subs were laughably bad. And now I stay up to date with both the animated version (since they started making it again) and the manga.

I don't know why I never really noticed the Ouran ending, that sounds pretty cool.  I liked that show a lot, too.

About the OP/EDs to Outlaw Star, do you have copies of the full versions at a bitrate better than 128kB/s?  I would love it if somebody could hook me up with anything better than the current MP3s I have.  I know there's probably a single that I could buy with all three songs from an import website, but I don't have a proper means of Interblag Playment Option.

Oh, I don't know how I forgot Rinbu Revolution (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sTP-xRbBlMA), which I liked a bit, Uninstall (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iNCXiMt1bR4), which I think is pretty awesome, and Get Along (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1-FUNF-agy4), another very influential song in my childhood. :)

I had the 3 openings for Magic Knight Rayearth memorized... I could literally have the entire song play in my head start to finish.

Yuzurenai Negai (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3QR8IbjxPzk)
Kirai ni Narenai (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i94yLDAQHfE)
Hikari to kage wo dakishimete mama (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LAKBYk20-Nk)

Hikari to kage was my favourite, and I knew but the japanese and dubbed lyrics to both Yurenai and Hikari to kage. And I knew the translation to the japanese lyrics well enough to know when they made up crap or changed the lyrics to make it work better in english. I also had the fandubbed spanish versions, and memorized the lyrics to those. I was somewhat obsessed, to say the least, with MKR for quite some time. I made a torrent of every episode, every OST, the SNES rom and a "OST" put together from all the music from the SNES rom that I manually ripped.

Another opening that I really love is Byakuya ~ True Light (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KZhUaiT1II8). Also, for nostalgia, this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b8Rvwu8Wykw).

Uninstall is awesome, though I've yet to see Bokurano, Get Along is amazing, Rinbu Revolution is awesome. As for particular singers I like, Megumi Hayashibara is definitely on that list.

Who?

Lupe Fiasco is another rapper. He's featured pretty decently on many Kanye songs. He's practically the image of everything gengster rap isn't. He looks like some mild mannered kid who goes to church on sundays and all the rest of it, and his rapping reflects that. His beats are VERY R&B influenced.

Lupe Fiasco - Kick Push (AOL Sessions)

All about skateboarding.

In Kanye West - Touch The Sky (feat. Lupe Fiasco) Lupe says "Yes, yes, yes guess who's on third?/Lupe still like Lupin the Third." Just really made me laugh in the middle of a Kanye West track.

Rodrigo y Gabriela. Amazing acoustic guitar players in a lot of ways, plus awesome people, and I can't do their stuff justice (mostly because I'm bad at describing music).



Have a listen! If you like it, check out their albums. Currently, they've got three albums out: "re-Foc", "Rodrigo y Gabriela", and "11:11" (which was released last month, the first track being the one in that video). I've been listening to and loving it for the past week or so.

Epik High is awesome. Been getting into a lot of Korean rap lately, and tbh a lot of it kicks ass.

Downloaded Rammstein's new album last week. Over the last few years, I've gotten over the whole Rammstein fanboy thing and realized that they're not the peak of musical prowess, but I really like this album because its so quintessentially Rammstein. I feel like the band is moving past their whole "let's make all of our songs deep"-phase and getting back into their niche: angry German songs about sex and fucked up things. I think anyone who goes in listening to it knowing its going to be about that will like it too. Plus there's a song about Josef Fritzl on it (Wiener Blut).

Post by: Bobbias on November 29, 2009, 07:52:42 PM
I'm gonna need to check that out sometime.

I've been listening to TONS of jazzy hip-hop (and regular hip-hop) lately. It's such a shame that jazzy hip-hop is so under the radar... There are some amazing people making that sort of stuff, but it's so hard to find.

If anyone's interested, I could make a little grab-bag of tracks I've been listening to lately (not just hip-hop, though, I've been listening to other stuff as well, such as Beirut, Elliott Smith, Angela Aki, Ephel Duath, and other stuff.)

Actually, I just re-listened to American Edit, which is a mashup album using Green Day's American Idiot as it's main source. I swear that album is pure fucking genius. It's not a mashup the way you might hear at a club where they mash maybe a beat with a well known track, and leave it at that, there are so many layers of sampling and such that it absolutely amazes me. Plus, the entire album is mixed in key, so none of the samples jar or anything, because they are all in the same key.

One of my favourite tracks form the mashup: Dr. Who On Holiday (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMbbt4uptlU)
Which samples:
Speech by George W. Bush, (January 3, 2003, Fort Hood, Texas)
Speech by the Daleks, (from episode 6 of "Genesis of the Daleks")
Green Day, "Holiday"
The Timelords, "Doctorin' the Tardis"
Gary Glitter, "Rock and Roll Part 2" (Sample used within "Doctorin' the Tardis")
Ron Grainer, The Doctor Who Theme Song (Sample used within "Doctorin' the Tardis")

I've never played this game, but this song is fucking insane.

Nope, there's a new one, it just came out. It's really goddamn awesome, it reminds me more of their first album than Nothing Lasts, though.

What would you say is their most recommendable album?

Oh yeah, and how is Between the Buried and Me? I've been meaning to look into them but I forgot about them a while ago.
Title: Re: The Music Discussion Thread (No Flaming!)
Post by: Ulti on December 07, 2009, 06:22:10 PM
I'm not a huge metalcore fan, but I have several friends who swear by Between the Buried and Me, and I did see them with Dream Theater and Opeth a few years back, and they're not terrible. If you're into metalcore, I'd give them a listen, since they seem to have more musical merit than the vast majority of metalcore groups.

As for Shpongle, you can't really go wrong with any of their albums, but I'd suggest either the new one (Ineffable Mysteries from Shpongleland) or Tales of the Inexpressible.
Title: Re: The Music Discussion Thread (No Flaming!)
Post by: Bobbias on December 07, 2009, 08:57:55 PM
Oh yeah, and how is Between the Buried and Me? I've been meaning to look into them but I forgot about them a while ago.

Sample 1: Alaska


Amazing guitar work in the opening (crazy sweep picking), moves on to metalcore insanity, a cool breakdown section, and weird as fuck guitar work. In 2 minutes.

The entire band is insanely skilled.
Example: Colors studio footage


Let's put it this way: They can play one song that sounds like rush, which breaks down into an almost opeth-esque metal-ish section, and then slow down, and have a jazz bass solo, and then ramp back up to absolute metalcore insaity. And all the while, they keep changing time signatures and tempos (sometimes to the point where I can't even follow what the time signature is any more).

Basically, they can play anything, meld it together, and make it metalcore as fuck.

When I first heard them, I nearly shit a fully formed brick house.

I highly suggest listening to their video of their drummer playing Prequel to the Sequel:
Part1

Part2


Part 2 has a weird 3/4 section that's like a slow polka or something, lol, then into more 3/4 guitar work and such.

So, I just found an awesome deal at the HMV in Barrie.

Out of nowhere, a CD by AIR caught my eye. I couldn't believe it, because they're not exactly all that well known (well, maybe in certain circles, but in general, most people would never have heard of them). But what amazed me was that it was the special 10th anniversary release of Moon Safari, containing 2 CDs (The album, and bonus remixes and rare radio recordings [CD quality recordings]) and 1 DVD of them on tour. All that in a digipack with a 12 page booklet, for $20. And since my income taxes just came back and I've got some money, I decided that was my impulse buy. Well worth the $20, I'd say.

This makes me wish she'd stuck making that stuff. The production is kinda weak on those tracks (as in, the backing music is almost non-existent), but she really is a great singer. That stuff actually really reminds me of Sarah Bareilles. Which is definitely a good thing.

If only she didn't make all that ridiculous electro-pop stuff. While I'll agree that Poker Face is rather catchy, I've never been a fan of commercialized electro-pop.

Agreed. And though production was weak, there was definitely a lot of potential there, it's not like it was bad, it just wasn't there.

Then again, I think that that music really wasn't her thing anyway, so as much as there was potential for success in that genre, I don't think it really would have worked.

By the sounds of it, her style is more bizarre, something like Emilie Autumn mixed in with some weird electronic stylings.

So, I finally decided to download the japanese version of Boris's album Smile. Big difference. Different track order, and completely different mixing, as well.

Overall Impression: MUCH better than the american release, and if you can find this one on CD, get it. Seriously, there isn't too much change to the track order, but the mixing makes a big big difference. There are lots of things that just get lost in the america release, due to the level that it was mastered at, and how much louder the guitars are than the vocals and drums.

Messeji - Very different feeling than the american one here. Still got the distorted guitars and bass, but much less noisy. Much more clean than the american release version. The american release sounds like someone turned it up so loud the whole track became distorted (which may well be the case).
Buzz-in - Still got the creepy opening. Sounds like it was mastered a bit lower than the american version. The levels are different. There are more weird sounds over top of the guitar, rather than the distorted guitar overriding everything. If anything, it's so much weirder than the american version. And the ending is different. It flows into Hanate!, the next track properly.
Hanate! - Much more sparse than the american, with a heavy distorted kick sound in the bakcground, and loud overdistorted guitars going in and out, but not covering the vocals up completely. Nor are the vocals turned up. You can hear what they're playing on the guitar much more clearly, rather than a mashup of crazy crap. And I should point out that the kicks, or floor tom hits, or whatever they are are WAY more distorted in this version. After 2 minutes in or so it begins to really diverge in mixing from the american version. The same sort of idea in what they did with it, but the japanese version is much better done, and you can hear things that were drowned out in the american release. It also doesn't cut out suddenly after the acoustic section begins, which is nice, because it really sounded like a bad touch in the american version, where they managed to sing 1 word or so, and suddenly get cut off.
Hana, Taiyou, Ame - This was the opening track of the american release. The japanese version has some percussion that was drowned out in the american version, and sounds a bit cleaner. The solo sound less like someone trying just to make noise and like a structured part of the song. The ending is cooler too. The instrument tracks fade out while the chanting of "Hana Taiyou Ame" continues until that too fades out.
Tonari no Sataan - Same cleanness found throughout the album. Mostly, the vocals are loud enough to sit on top of the guitar, rather than be drowned it in, creating an effect where even the heavily distorted guitar is easy to listen to, because it creates almost a texture in the background. There are some sounds that are apparent in this mix that aren't audible at all (or possibly aren't even present) in the american release. And at the 2 minute mark, where the song breaks into a solo, it sounds so much better. There's a second guitar creating a cool melody on top of the solo that really adds to it. The second solo is so much more in this version.
Kare Hate Ta Saki - This one's opening resembles the american one a lot. The biggest difference I can hear in this one is that you can actually hear the cymbals and such more clearly. Also, lots of weird talking and such later on. Apparently this done is shorter by a decent bit than the American release.
Kimi Ha Kasa O Sashi Te I Ta - Where the last song is shorter than the american release, this track is longer. The opening is clearer, you can tell that it's drumming with some effects (some sort of reverb that really distorts stuff almost like a ring mod). On top is a delicate guitar track and vocals that convey more emotion than the american release makes them sound. There's a bass guitar that isn't distorted in there as well that wasn't there in the american version (or wasn't audible anyway). This is one of the songs that the american version butchered, compared to it's japanese counterpart. I should point out that the drumming almost sounds like a train, chugging along in the background, and really comes out in this version. The second half of the song is still as distorted and forlorn sounding as it is in the american version, just clearer.
Hidden Track - Same as the rest: much clearer and easier to hear everything. Not too much diffeent mixing, really. Also, this one is 19 minutes, rather than 15 minutes.

I know what you mean about Rush. It's thanks to Rock Band that I got introduced to them, hah.

If anyone listens to Animal Collective, their new album Merriweather Post Pavilion is awesome.
Title: Re: The Music Discussion Thread (No Flaming!)
Post by: Bobbias on February 22, 2010, 06:08:53 PM
Man, Rush is easily one of the best rock bands ever. And I'm not remotely joking. They have pioneered a unique sound, they are all amazing at what they do, they have always managed to get what they want from the record companies, rather than let the companies dictate their music. And they are still making music. They really should be inducted into the Hall of Fame.
Title: Re: The Music Discussion Thread (No Flaming!)
Post by: Ulti on February 22, 2010, 07:23:44 PM
Yeah, Rush kicks a huuuuuuuuge amount of ass. Granted, they, like most bands that old, went through a long period where they sucked an incredible amount of ass (durr hurr nobody was good in the late 80's early 90's anyways), their newer stuff is pretty cool too.

@sq3r - Yeah, that album is pretty badass, but I still think I like Strawberry Jam more, if you don't have that, you should definitely snag it.

Also, Girl Talk is going to be on campus next saturday, I am so thinking about doing a huge pile of drugs and going. I just can't decide how huge of a pile to take, since the tickets are 20 bucks >:| and the tickets are sold out so I'm not going to go! qq
Title: Re: The Music Discussion Thread (No Flaming!)
Post by: MortifiedocAlot on February 22, 2010, 11:04:34 PM
Wait what? Rush made newer stuff?

Also I've been addicted to Iron Maiden lately. They are really underrated as a band generally. Kick ass solos, awesome singer, and a surprisingly good base guitarist.
Title: Re: The Music Discussion Thread (No Flaming!)
Post by: Ulti on February 23, 2010, 01:58:02 AM
Yeah, Rush hasn't stopped putting out music like, ever as far as I know, but I like Vapor Trails and Snakes and Arrows a good bit, and those are their two most recent.

Iron Maiden kicks quite a staggering amount of ass, and I would definitely not say they're underrated - Literally anyone ever who listens to metal will tell you Maiden kicks major ass, they're one of the most well-known metal bands around. They're just obscure to people who aren't into metal. If you don't have Powerslave, you should go get it, like, right now. D:

My current Playlist:
Angela Aki - Answer - Good japanese pop. She plays piano, writes her own music, is an amazing singer, and I believe she produced and recorded this album more or less by herself...

Hiromi Uehara - Spiral - A great album by Hiromi, I've mentioned her before, but if you missed it, she's a crazy good jazz pianist, who was discovered by Chick Corea. My favourite album by her.

Sufjan Stevens - Illinois - If you don't know this album, download it. Now.

Lily Allen - Alright Still - Such a fun, quirky pop album. This is what good pop music sounds like.

Loituma - Things of Beauty - Such an amazing album. Beautiful Finnish folk songs. They also do Ieven's Polka, AKA leekspin.swf

VA - Wicker Park OST - An awesome collection of indie music. Has Death Cab, Snow Patrol, +/-, m

you know, listen to stuff long enough and it starts to grow on you.



two years ago?  nah.  now, ill go out of my way to listen to it.  you know, i would rather it be popular bad rap stuff than country/emo.  at least i can laugh at alot of the dumb chopped and screwed stuff.  like, save for when i put in my jamz, it's the same mp3 player, with the same rap songs...yeah...  but one time i brought in this merzbow album (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tauromachine) when i was opening...seriously had to gimp the volume because you can hear that shit at the front of the store even with the volume on low.  

that kind of makes me scared in a way, i used to like the whiny emo music back in middle/early high school...now i hate it...does that mean i will eventually like it again?  god i hope not.  though my past emo listening high school self would slap me for listening to the song in the youtube video and enjoying it, as i would slap him for listening to shit like papa roach.  

something to think about.  

probably wouldn't like this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tFd9Rj4LwsI) either, shit would be good night driving music.

Etro Anime is seriously one of the best electronic artists in a long time. As far as I know, they have been the only artist to actually create real lounge'n'bass.

- Danger, used in Digital Devil Saga. Fantastic song.

&feature=related - Portrait was voted best electronic song of 2002 by some major publication. Can't remember which.

- Purest One, just a really good song

Honestly, Liset Alea's voice is mesmerizing and everything they do is fantastic. Sadly, Alea left the group to do solo stuff and I'm not entirely sure Etro Anime ever got their second album out, or if they did it has such a small release as to be nonexistent. I know Alea's own album disappeared and has already been discontinued.

Either way, See the Sound is seriously one of my favorite albums of all time.

I've gotten back into Tub Ring for some reason. I haven't listened to their newest album yet but I'll get around to it.

Oddly enough, it's really hard to find clean youtube videos and not live ones of them but at least someone made a video of them playing my Alexander in Charge file so there's at least that haha

Title: Re: The Music Discussion Thread (No Flaming!)
Post by: Bobbias on April 22, 2010, 06:39:02 AM
Haha, yeah, tub ring is fun as hell to listen to.

And trust me, if you listen to di.fm/s drum  and bass channel long enough, you do get stuff close to lounge'n'bass. Not quite the same sounds as Etro Anime, but close. There is a bunch of atmospheric drum and bass on there, and some of it does have lyrics, and sounds pretty close. Mind you, that is a pretty rare subgenre of dnb, so it is pretty hard to find much of.

Seriously, this song is amazing. Multiple layered simultaneous vocal lines, piano, interesting instrumentation, and a mix of male and female vocals.

Easily the best song I've heard on thesixtyone so far. And in case you guys dont know thesixtyone, its a music discovery site, but unlike pandora, you can actually go back to songs you liked and listen to them over and over. Plus, it's got a quest system thing, just to make it that much cooler, lol. But seriously, check the site out, it's got some awesome music.

Dubstep. I used to think it was retarded. Then I realized it has WAY the fuck better bass than DnB.

That song is like, the only Flobots track anyone knows. Their other music is awesome too. Their newest CD has the guy from Rise Against singing with them on one of their tracks.

Also:


Gabber track that heavily samples Gangsters Paradise.

Eh, I dunno.  DBZ is so damn popular during its prime that I'd say it's probably passed up most American cartoons.  It's not too surprising that he'd try to ruin that.

Edit: On a slightly more on-topic note, I've been listening to a lot of Lacuna Coil (mixed with a few shots of Evanescence) as of late.  It's a nice change of pace...I think I like it.

Sometimes i feel like the only person on the planet that thinks dubstep is overrated. It's alright, but so many people are going 'BEST GENRE EVAARRRRRR' (pre-emptive note that I didn't include you in here) and I'm not sure why. :|
Title: Re: The Music Discussion Thread (No Flaming!)
Post by: Bobbias on August 08, 2010, 05:12:30 PM
Well, it's the next big thing in the UK. But I agree that it's overrated. My brother said something along the lines of "man, it's sad, in a couple years I'm gonna think that the wobble bass was the dumbest idea ever, but man I love that stuff right now".

I admit that I really love the sound, but I'd never go to the point of being a fanboy. I don't just listen to it, anyway. I've got Wu-Tang Clan -Tearz playing right now, actually, lol.

And to be honest, when I first heard dubstep, I hated it (back when it was REALLY new).

Dubstep's characterized by the off-beat drums and shit I think. I am pretty sure that is the main defining factor, look at the wiki page. I really don't care for artists like Caspa or Rusko much at all, I prefer older dubstep like Skream, Burial, or Kode9 to the more modern stuff. Wobble bass is just getting beaten death and and back again, even by bands that aren't dubstep (I am looking at you, The Bloody Beetroots!). But as far as a club genre goes, I am really happy that this is taking off as opposed to just more of the same hip-hop/rap stuff. Dubstep is something I can actually get into, assuming I am properly medicated.

Dubstep's characterized by the off-beat drums and shit I think. I am pretty sure that is the main defining factor, look at the wiki page.

I'd like to expand a bit. Dubstep is a fusion between the Breakbeat/Drum and Bass style breaks, mixed with Dub, and Grime, all rolled into one. Of course, there are varying influences in individual artists and such, but that's the summery of it's main influences. It doesn't need to have offbeat drums, there's lots of it out there that has basic 4/4 beats.

The original Dub genre, where Dubstep gets it's name, happens to be a sorta subgenre of reggae. It bares almost no resemblance to reggae any more, though. It's basically the riddim from reggae tracks that has been remixed and such, emphasizing the drums and bass. Basically, the more laid back and empty sounding dubstep that lacks wobble bass sounds a lot like Dub.

The influences from Drum and Bass and Grime are what give Dubstep it's offbeat drums (DnB), dark sound (DnB) and crazy basses (Grime, well, sorta).

Example tracks:
Dub:

Grime:
  I dunno how representative this track is, because I know very little about grime. If it helps, Dizzee Rascal is also grime.
Dubstep Example 1 (no wobble bass!):
  This track is really laid back, has no real crazy bass, but is still considered dubstep.
Dubstep Example 2: (crazy fucking bass):
  This is probably one of my favourite dubstep tracks of all time. It does have wobble bass, but uses it in a really unique way, and mixes it with some really high end synth.

Downloaded Pendulum's newest album. Pretty awesome stuff. I definitely like their mixture of rock and DnB sounds, and their experimentation in this album. Set Me On Fire is one of the tracks that stands out for me, but that's partly because it's one of the best dubstep tracks I've heard in a while. I like how they've really begun creating more laid back tracks as well as their crazy stuff. I mean, listen to Under The Waves. And there's a track, Self Vs Self, that features In Flames. It sounds a bit out of place, but it's pretty cool. Not the greatest track on the album by any means, but not bad.

Overall, the album is a pretty good example of a band exploring their take on different genres, and doing it well.
Title: Re: The Music Discussion Thread (No Flaming!)
Post by: Ulti on August 18, 2010, 04:40:22 PM
Yeah, the new Pendulum album is alright. I saw them live a little while before they dropped it and it built my expectations for it up to retarded extremes, since it was a great show, but the album wasn't terrible either. I personally would rather have seen them stick with more straightforward DnB (ala Hold your Colour) than try to do all the rock stuff, since in my opinion they're not that great at it (Whoever writes their lyrics should be punched, they're almost as silly as dragonforks, but I had this same complaint about In Silico), but there's still a lot of good songs. That one featuring Steven Wilson is pretty kickass, I almost shit my pants when I saw he was featured on the album. I could just do without that In Flames song, since I haven't been able to listen to anything that band has made since like the 80's :<
Title: Re: The Music Discussion Thread (No Flaming!)
Post by: Bobbias on August 18, 2010, 04:57:46 PM
Heh, The Fountain (Feat. Steven Wilson) Is playing right now, actually. It's a great track.

I was never a fa of In Silico, but I'm really enjoying this album. I actually kinda like some of the tracks that mix DnB with Rock. Mind you, Self Vs Self is pretty much trash.

After having listened through the album a couple times, I've gotta say that Set Me On Fire is my favourite track, simply because it's Pendulum doing dubstep, and fucking KILLing. Crush and Under The Waves are good, and the other standout track(s) are The Island (1 and 2). I really love that they're experimenting with a more House/Electro sound with those. It works really well.

But yeah, I kinda wish they had stuck with stuff like Hold Your Color. That album was goddamned brilliant.

If only they put that much brutality into their studio albums... (I like LP up to Metora; Minutes to Midnight is very much hit or miss).

*Disclaimer: DEP's live covers of it are fantastic as well, but DEP and NIN mesh a bit more than LP and NIN, I think.  Edit: Here's a video link to that'un: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qboe5CebixA (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qboe5CebixA).  I wouldn't advise watching it in fullscreen.  The video was shot with a DSLR camera and the strobes will really fuck with your eyes thanks to how the sensor works.

Dubstep is making a rise in popularity in the rave scene, and it has quite a specific song that ravers are in to.. There are some great varying styles of dubstep, but this is the most mainstream for the underground:

&playnext=1&index=3

datsik, rusko, excision, etc.
Title: Re: The Music Discussion Thread (No Flaming!)
Post by: Bobbias on August 25, 2010, 01:55:27 PM
Hell, not just the rave scene. In the UK Dubstep is replacing DnB as the major mainstream electronic music craze. And yeah, that stuff is the most common rave scene style. Despite the fact that it bears almost no resemblance to what Rusko and others created when the genre was beginning to take shape. And hell Chase and Status are now into Dubstep. If that doesn't signal that DnB is losing it's popularity (:<) I dunno what is.

Amusingly enough, a Excision and Zeds Dead are Canadian.

Hella chillout/glitch hop/ trip hop. Slower stuff. My most recent iPod playlist includes all of the above mentioned, plus a bit more m1dy, a bit less Pendulum, a bit more Boards of Canada, a bit less Flashbulb. My tastes palate has expanded and become a little more picky :p

Also, in case you didn't know about it, there's a wicked internet radio at http://www.somafm.com that has some awesome stuff. They've got a number of different streams on there, and a couple of them have downtempo/glitch/chillout type stuff. I hear a lot of flashbulb/autechre/whatever else on their cliqhop chanel.

*Disclaimer: DEP's live covers of it are fantastic as well, but DEP and NIN mesh a bit more than LP and NIN, I think.

I kind of like the dynamics of how LP did the guitar work.  It seemed a bit less wall-of-noisey than the more NIN-style covers.  As far as the vocal work, Chester's voice is a bit more grating than Trent or Greg Puciato's, but I thought his performance was intense as hell (aside from the "I HATE EVERYONE" part...that sounded humorously off).

That said, any cover of Wish is worth listening to just to hear the singer yell "FIST FUCK."
Title: Re: The Music Discussion Thread (No Flaming!)
Post by: Bobbias on August 26, 2010, 02:15:58 PM
I really wish LP had gone for a more hybred sound with their later stuff, rather than just turning into the mindless rock they are now. Chester is a legitimately good screamer, and Mike's hip-hop influences made them a very unique sounding band, back in the Hybred Theory days. Since then they've basically just become shit, IMO. I never really liked Meteora, and I was practically the only one I knew who actually had Reanimation. I fucking loved Reanimation, so when they came out with Meteora my reaction was like "The fuck is this shit?" And Minutes To Midnight, well that's just trash.
Title: Re: The Music Discussion Thread (No Flaming!)
Post by: Spectere on August 26, 2010, 02:51:38 PM
Hybrid Theory and Reanimation both fucking rocked.  No doubt about that.

I thought that Meteora was decent.  Nothing groundbreaking, but it definitely had some catchy stuff on it.  As for Minutes To Midnight, well...that one had a couple of good tracks, but it was generally underwhelming (to put it gently).  I like Mike's style a lot, and it's really a shame that his talents are being downplayed for the most part.

If you haven't already acquired it, I'd suggest looking for some of their old demo tracks and the Hybrid Theory EP.  The quality isn't the best (I think they recorded it in Mike's apartment, haha) but it's amazing how good they were even before Hybrid Theory was released.
Title: Re: The Music Discussion Thread (No Flaming!)
Post by: Bobbias on August 26, 2010, 03:12:23 PM
Yeah, my brother and I both had those tracks. High Voltage kicks ass.

I really wish they had stayed making that style of hip-hop/rock.

I didn't hate Meteora with a passion or something, but it was a HUGE let down for me, especially after reanimation was kinda like a return to their more hip-hop sound. And about the only track I actually liked was Nobody's Listening, which seemed to piss my brother off, lol.

Been listening to a lot of classical piano music. Hungarian Rhapsody in C Major makes me tingle all over every time I listen to it. Really anything by Franz Liszt is fantastic though.
Title: Re: The Music Discussion Thread (No Flaming!)
Post by: Bobbias on September 17, 2010, 06:23:22 AM
I don't know much Liszt, aside from the Hungarian Rhapsody and La Campanella (particularly, Arthur Rubinstein (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hQULyGMhhWs)'s rendition), what else of his would you recommend? Do you have a favourite version of The Rhapsody?

Personally, I've always loved Chopin. Especially his Nocturne Op. 9 No. 2, particularly Rubinstein's (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YGRO05WcNDk) (again) rendition. I find that his dynamics feel perfectly placed, and his timing is just right. His trills especially seem to have perfect timing. Yundi does an alright rendition, but his trills seem rushed and slightly off time sometimes. And he places dynamics in the actual trills, which bothers me a bit. The only other real gripe I have about his performance of it is that his left hand is a bit heavy, where Rubinstein's feels controlled and lets the music convey the emotion, rather than the playing. And I can't say I like Rachmaninoff's rendition of it at all. And I must say I'm a fan of Vivaldi's Four Seasons. I'm not a huge fan of orchestral arrangements for some reason though. I find I prefer solo piano or string arrangements, so that would definitely bias me.

And yes, I do have a thing for Rubinstein's playing. It always feels like he's playing the piece with such a technical mastery that its not his playing that you feel, but the beauty of the composition itself. I've always felt that when you hear someone's rendition of a piece, and they play it a bit differently, that you were listening to a unique piece of music and that the way the song was played had a huge effect on the emotion that you felt from it, but he seem to make his playing transparent, so that the original intent of the piece shows through. Well, that's what it feels like to me anyway.

Other than that, I absolutely love Erik Satie. Technically we're really getting out of the "classical" waters with him, but he basically introduced minimalism to music, as well as broke so many rules about composing, that it's hard not to like him. His music just has a weird haunting quality to the odd choices of harmony, especially in his Gymnopedies.\\

Out of curiocity, have you heard of Maksim Mrvica? If so, what do you think of what he's doing to classical music pieces. He's basically trying to "make classical music cool", but in the process, tends to "dumb down" the tracks, and leave out a lot of stuff. I don't think he's quite as talented as he's made out to be... Though I still think he is a hell of a pianist.

Okay, I gave it another listen to be a bit more fair.  It's definitely experimental, though I'd probably consider it a failed experiment.  Too much filler, not enough substance, all in all.  I really think that Linkin Park was overextending themselves a bit.  They had a decent concept with the album, but Mike in particular seemed to be particularly out of his element.  His style simply doesn't fit the musical style of the new album.  Additionally, some songs that could have been quite good (Blackout is the best example that I can think of) are seriously degraded by the overuse of effects.  In Blackout's case, there is an intense and overall awesome lead-in by Chester turns into a mess of poorly sampled and manipulated vocal clips between 2:20 and 3:00, going from reasonably tolerable at first to downright annoying by the end of it.  The rest of the song is fine, but that one part is just so awful that I can't get over it.  It seriously sounds like someone who just downloaded the trial for FL Studio, managed to get Chester to belt out a few lines, then decided to go and hit random keys on the keyboard to hear it in different pitches.  I'm not joking or exaggerating, it's seriously a mess of short, randomly pitched samples.  It's an awful segment of an otherwise good song.

Ugh.  I think I'm going to listen to something else now.  I'm upsetting myself.

I haven't heard any of the new album... but I know I heard a song from it last night on the radio in the car (me and Dad were going to get ice cream). And the funny thing is, even though the DJ never announced who it was before the song played, my Dad thought it sounded like Linkin Park before I did haha.

Gonna have to listen to the album on something other than car speakers.

Heh, yeah, it's pretty much a complete deviation from their old stuff.  It's hard to place if you're not listening closely to the vocals (unless Mike is rapping; he kind of stands out like a sore thumb on their new album).

I've been listening to the latest My Chemical Romance's (shut up) CD the last couple of days and wow, they've changed quite a bit.

I always kind of disagreed with their "emo" classification because, aside from parts of their first CD and, oh, ONE song on their second CD ("I'm Not Okay (I Promise)", which is kind of a shitty song IMO) they're really not.  "Danger Days" is kind of more of a straight rock CD and it's pretty good all in all.

And one of the songs are played at the end of the Gran Turismo 5 intro, and Steve, Righ? had a few speaking roles, so it can't be bad, right?  Right.

I still love real Drum and Bass though, I really hope that people keep producing real DnB and not just switch over to Dubstep and Drumstep.

I recently took a liking to Genesis and acquired Selling England by the Pound, and I've come to the conclusion that I need more progressive rock in my life. I'm thinking of acquiring some Yes, but I'm still on the fence with them.

Oh, and I got some more Slayer and Opeth. Opeth's Damnation is a great album, and Slayer's Season's in the Abyss is amazing, but you would obviously know this already if you were a fan of either.

Details: get any of their albums, you won't regret it. Menos el Oso is a great album, and I absolutely love the track "The Fix", it has such great lyrics.

Also, for Opeth, damnation is really good, but honestly I prefer Blackwater Park... Opeth's style kinda loses a bit when the two sides are completely separate. I mean, it has slow songs like Damnation: Patterns in the Ivy (1 and 2), Harvest, and Still Day Beneath The Sun, but it also has stuff like The Leper Affinity and Dirge for November, which are all pretty heavy (though Dirge for November really is a dirge)

That's their more slower, chiller songs. Other songs that they have are definitely more "math rocky" and upbeat, but you should still give a listen to their other good songs like Summer Angel, Secret Country (these two flow together, it sounds pretty kewl) Throwin Shapes, Pachuca Sunrise and Into the Mirror (which sounds weird at first but gets REALLY awesome later in the song.)

Also, FIFA makes REALLY FUCKING GOOD soundtracks.

So, I've been listening to the Mumford and Sons album Sigh no More lately... There's one song in particular that really amazes me every time I hear it:


That song is pure musical genius. The lyrics are powerful, and catchy, the music builds up to a wall of sound climax that just wants to destroy your speakers, and the song ranges between the massive wall of sound and nothing more than Marcus' voice, so when the wall of sound hits, it seems like a punch in the face.

Hell, the whole album is just beautiful, and many of the song on there demonstrate great use of dynamics, it's almost like that's a hallmark of their songwriting, and it's something that's been so lacking in music lately, with everything compressed beyond recognition...

I instantly had to get the album version, because I thought some of their other stuff was good too. The version above is from the album. The differences are slight, but they are there.

And an actual decent hip hop song derived from "Kids". Also used in a trailer for 30 Seconds or Less

I just wanted to ask, anyone have any recommendable Cake or the Cardigans albums? I've been reading reddit and I get this feeling like I still need to drastically expand my range of music. Also I'm going to look into Elton Jon and David Bowie, since I feel like anything from them would work well.

Also does anyone here listen to Cloudkicker? A friend of mine showed me them and I'm kind of digging it.

Lately (past year or so) i've really gotten into shoegaze. The song that got me into the genre was Slowdive's "Souvlaki Space Station" (1993)... the song is incredible to say the least (mesmerizing, mind-altering etc).


Other great shoegaze artists other than Slowdive I've found are Lush, Moose, Pale Saints, Chapterhouse... and Kitchens of Distinction to an extent. Anyone else listen to Shoegaze? My Bloody Valentine is shoegaze too but I only happen to like one of their songs (You Made Me Realize)

Not to be an asshole, but people go to clubs to dance/hook up/have fun, and club rap caters to exactly that, and practically everyone goes to clubs these days. Personally I hate it, and I've only ever gone to appease friends. I mean, when I'm drunk as fuck I don't mind as much, and I kinda like some of the sound systems, but they never play music I like (or at least I've never been to a club when it was playing music I'd like).

Plus, stuff like POS is to intelligent for people. If you can't hear lyrics that make sense to someone drunk/high as fuck that can hardly understand anything more than a 4 letter word, it won't be hugely popular in clubs.... Sad that things have turned to this, but I can't help but think that eventually things will get better... If not, I might have to orchestrate the downfall of whatever is driving the music industry in the 2040's :P

I find it funny how you say "not to be a dick" and then go on to coherently explain yourself properly in a coherent and completely reasonable way. Damn Canadians.

but yeah, I agree. Typically music played in clubs is whatever decently popular song that has a catchy, really basic dance beat. I can stand it, but when people listen to mostly that music. It already gets played far too often.

Didn't I post some Hiromi a while back? I've been a huge fan of her stuff for a long time. Nero's Day at Disneyland is pretty fucking awesome... I think they fall under breakcore, if you feel like putting them in a genre.

This is my favorite track off that album (and basically everything up to Place to Be...)


She is an absolute musical genius, and deserves far more recognition than she has (although she is definitely not an unknown).

She worked with the Stanley Clarke Trio on an album a while ago that contains an amazing cover of the Chili Peppers' track Under the Bridge


Hiromi talks about recording Place to Be:


The title track off that album, my all-time favorite song of hers. First time I heard this song was when someone had uploaded a crappy recording of her playing it live at a show and they didn't know the name of the song. Eventually I found someone had uploaded a duet version she did with Chick Corea for a movie. I tried for a while to track the soundtrack or the movie itself down, but couldn't. Eventually months passed and she finally released the album, and I've been listening to the song in my car whenever I put my CD with that album on, usually more than once.

past few months ive been listening to two groups of music. 

one is just an artist named Ott (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hJj_4ir12-w&list=FLwiOMSz5cQMjm32fQQr7sOg&index=1&feature=plpp_video), probably my favorite artist right now.  i recently purchased his skylon album, and his remix album in dub.  i love this guy. 

the other group is late 80's/early-mid 90's rap.  eric b and rakim (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Y1Emb7Jyks&ob=av2e), gang starr, ice cube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8CPlF-IEkXQ), the pharcyde, whatever the fuck i find on pandora.  for some reason i can focus more on homework with this stuff playing. 

pretty much that with some herbie hancock (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q0GeduK17Ts) sprinkled inbetween.
