1 The Velvet Underground - The Velvet Underground & Nico
One would be hard pressed to name a rock album whose influence has been as broad and pervasive as The Velvet Underground and Nico. While it reportedly took over a decade for the album's sales to crack six figures, glam, punk, new wave, goth, noise, and nearly every other left-of-center rock movement owes an audible debt to this set. While The Velvet Underground had as distinctive a sound as any band, what's most surprising about this album is its diversity. Here, the Velvets dipped their toes into dreamy pop ("Sunday Morning"), tough garage rock ("Waiting For The Man"), stripped-down R&B ("There She Goes Again"), and understated love songs ("I'll Be Your Mirror") when they weren't busy creating sounds without pop precedent. …

“I didn’t know Bob Dylan was that good.”
That’s what one of my room mates said when I was listening to this album in our living room. I have to admit the same thought had already crossed my mind. Due to some overexposure in the religion lessons in high school (Blowin' in the Wind seems to be a standard contemplation song) I had the wrong idea that I wouldn’t like Bob Dylan very much anyway.
Well, I’m glad that is sorted out now. Praise the Lord and thank Jesus ;): this is an astonishingly superb album. And to think I missed it all these years… damn!
Bob Dylan complains that he never meant to be the voice of his generation. Well, too bad, it is his own fault. He shouldn’t have made songs like these (he shouldn’t have such a great voice) and he definitely shouldn’t have written lyrics like this:
Come you masters of war
You that build all the guns
You that build the death planes
You that build the big bombs
14 Aug 2008, 10:27 by DunkeryMijn Bijna Perfecte Bijna Definitieve Lijst (English translation will follow in time)
Last. FM heeft me de inspiratie gegeven om het onmogelijke te doen. Lijstjes maken! Het maken van charts, het zelf ontstaan van charts, nieuwe muziek ontdekken, geld uitgeven aan nieuwe cd's, was voor mij niet genoeg. Door cd's en lp's in lijsten te rangschikken, wilde ik er achterkomen, wat ik nu zelf de beste geluidsdragers vond/vind na al die jaren dat ik in muziek ben geinteresseerd. Natuurlijk is muziek geen sport, er zijn geen winnaars en verliezers in muziek (alhoewel), misschien alleen hoogtepunten en dieptepunten. Het heeft allemaal met gevoel te maken, weet ik zelf ook wel. Met smaak wellicht ook, met stemmingen. Ik koop al vannaf m'n 16e muziek. Heb al die lp's nog steeds in mijn bezit. Top Pop kijken, de wekelijkse Top 40 meenemen uit de platenzaak, naar Amsterdam afreizen naar Boudisc (RIP), lp's kopen, Frits Spits, Alfred Lagarde, Hanneke Kappen, Superclean Dream Machine…

9 Oct 2007, 10:40 by DugaholeI am really bored so I thought I would take a look at my top 10 artists and see if there are any surprises.
#1 – Bob Dylan: Not really a surprise, I listen to Dylan all the time mainly due to his lyrical greatness and the fact that he doesn’t overcomplicate his music. I have always known about Bob Dylan but didn’t start listening to him until late last year when I finished high school. My favourite albums are Blood on the Tracks, Highway 61 Revisited and Bringing It All Back Home. Some of my favourite songs are Visions of Johanna, Desolation Row, Mr. Tambourine Man, A Hard Rain's a-Gonna Fall and It Takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes a Train to Cry. I will listen to Bob Dylan until the end of my days. He is a legend.
#2 - Rage Against the Machine: My favourite band by the length of Australia, these guys have so much power and their lyrics hit you like a freight train. I first hear RATM at my friends house when I was 10, he said put on Rage Against the Machine…

11 Jan 2007, 02:00 by calebselectGuess the songs (and artists) that these lyrics come from. When someone guesses them, i'll cross them off.
This isn't random, I chose lyrics I liked.
Don't google it, that's lame.
1. Well, I dreamed I saw the knights in armour coming,
Sayin' something about a queen.
There were peasants singin' and drummers drummin'
And the archer split the tree.
After the Gold Rush
2. You go to a publisher and play him your song
He says "I hate your music and you hair is too long
But I'll sign you up because I'd hate to be wrong"
3. What can I say, the words destroy all meaning
There’s only cliché to get across this feeling
4. Rollin' from your brat sarcastic eye
A California tear, a drop of gold
Maybe you were cold, yeah, so was I
5. Your letters they all say that you're beside me now
Then why do I feel so alone?
I'm standing on a ledge and your fine spider web
Is fastening my ankle to a stone
6. And now I'm set free
I'm set free
I'm set free to find another illusion
