31 Mar 2012, 14:44 by chrisjon89Only one album per artist again. This takes a deceptively long amount of time.
The Beach Boys - Pet Sounds
People have been singing the praises of this album to me forever, and what little I'd heard I loved. But that only included God Only Knows and Wouldn't It Be Nice, and a select few stop/start takes off the Complete Pet Sounds boxset release from a few years back.
So my impression was still that they were predominantly a surf/girls/cars themed pop group with a liking for vocal harmonies (which is not a bad thing at all - I love that stuff too). 23 years pass and I finally listened to this album in its entirety and was blown away to an extent that happens very rarely. The vibe was the polar opposite to what I expected too. I find it extremely depressing, but essential listening. The production is enthralling, but you could strip all of the bells and whistles away (literally) and perform these songs with a lone guitar or piano and they'd still resonate…

27 Aug 2007, 06:12 by dp316This past weekend I was out yardsaling - I usually save a ton of money this way and I often get to try out music I wouldn't otherwise try that way. I came across a box set I didn't recognize by jazz great John Coltrane. Having streamed A Love Supreme off of the internet enough times to know I like it, and having previously found My Favorite Things at a thrift store ($2.50, if you're wondering), I knew it was worth taking a look at. After mulling it over for a minute and consulting a music guide I left in the car, I decided to offer $15 for the box ($20 was the asking price) - and that's how I wound up buying The Classic Quartet: The Complete Impulse! Studio Recordings for $15.
...long story short, it's amazing. After looking it up online I realized I had bought a ton of awesome stuffhttp://www.last.fm/forum/markup
Formatting help and that this thing's worth $45 used and $90 new (mine is in like-new condition - the woman I bought it from said she barely listened to it and hadn't liked it). …

9 Mar 2007, 16:34 by elizanne85Dang, that's an accomplishment right?
And what more fitting way to do it, than with my new resolution to learn to like Jazz. I decided it was an underappreciated form of music, and amidst cries like "JAZZ IS FOR OLD PEOPLE" (thanks Rachel, oh 14-year-old-sister of mine)I'm still persisting in acquiring a taste, sort of like learning to like poetry.
Thanks Emily for the cd's

8 Feb 2007, 23:20 by w1bble1. Which bands/artists do you own the most albums by?
The Fall, easily: 40 including compilations but not including bootlegs. I don't even own everything they've done... yet. Sometimes they're the only band in the world worth listening to...
There's a few other bands where I've bought everything they've put out - Led Zeppelin, Super Furry Animals, Björk, Beastie Boys, Mogwai... but nobody I can think of comes close to their level of output without dropping the ball...
2. What was the last song you listened to?
Tricks Of The Shade
3. What's in your CD player right now?
The album I'm listening to is [album artist=Goats]Tricks of the Shade[/track], but it's on my hard drive. All my CDs are neatly-but-randomly filed away. New ones turn to mp3's and then join them.
4. What was the last show you attended?
0 Degrees of Separation at the ABC in Glasgow
5. What was the greatest show you've ever been to?
Loads of contenders... …
