    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. …

  • 10 Great Bob Dylan rarities

    23 Jan 2009, 18:43 by Codyke

    Bob Dylan not only released some of the critically most acclaimed albums in the history of music. He left plenty of great songs of those albums as well! The 8 volumes of his Bootleg Series are the perfect example of the great songs he had hidden in his vaults for a long time. But there are more tracks, which weren't released on an album or as a single. Think of the Genuine Basement Tapes. The 10 next songs are 10 other great rarities which hopefully will see an official release in the future. There was only one criteria I used for selecting the songs: the recordings should be in high quality.

    1) The Death of Emmett Till(The Freewheelin’ Outtakes, 1962)

    This great protest song was originally recorded during the The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan sessions in 1962. The topic of this song shows a lot of similarities to The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll. A black boy gets killed by two racist brothers ‘’ just for the fun of killin' him and to watch him slowly die’’. …
  • Cool covers

    11 Nov 2008, 20:33 by Anjoli

    A journal entry to keep track of cool covers. Now as a playlist (New!).

    Hello Spaceboy - Pagan's Mind
    I was not aware of this David Bowie song (Hello Spaceboy) before I heard this version. Brilliant performance.

    Metro - System of a Down
    Berlin (Take My Breath Away-Berlin) did the original (Metro). Maybe it is the song as such that is awesome, not the cover. Alkaline Trio has covered it as well (Metro).

    Lucretia My Reflection - Warrel Dane
    Nevermore member Dane makes an awesome version of this Sisters of Mercy Floodland classic. That's an album to check out.

    Better Off Dead - Anathema
    O gosh, I forgot the best cover ever. This is a wonderful cover of Bad Religion. Michelle Richfield does the most impressing vocals I have ever heard. The original is a song I did not pay much attention to before I heard the cover, but I think that is significant for a cool cover. (Edit November 14th 2008)

  • Polityczna Katie Melua

    25 Sep 2008, 09:52 by zen-concrete

    Czytałem półtora roku temu artykuł na temat wpływu polityki na świat muzyczny. Okazuje się, że długotrwały konflikt, jak na przykład wojna na Bliskim Wschodzie, której nikt poza garstką rządzących sobie nie życzy, odbija się w tekstach piosenek. I nie chodzi o żadnych zaangażowanych politycznie artystów, ponieważ ci najczęściej uprzedzają wydarzenia takie, jak inwazja na Afganistan czy Irak.
    Nie, mowa tutaj o piosenkarzach, którzy najczęściej płodzą kolejne popowe piosenki o miłości i tym podobnych tematach. Jak zapewne domyślili się wszyscy po temacie, jedną z takich artystek była również Katie Melua. W mojej ulubionej piosence jej autorstwa, Spider's Web, druga zwrotka idzie tak:

    I could tell you to go to war,
    Or I could march for peace and fighting no more,
    How do I know which is right,
    And I hope he does when he sends you to fight.

    Co istotne, tekst do piosenki napisała ona. Wcześniej zajmował się tym Mike Batt, ale na drugim albumie Katie zaczęła przejmować powoli tę rolę. …
  • [36] Bob Dylan – The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan (1963)

    8 Sep 2008, 18:28 by Llorenza

    Bob DylanThe Freewheelin' Bob Dylan

    “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

    Mijn 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…
