23 Apr 2010, 19:46 by amodelofcontrolOnto part four of my 90s album run-down.
There is again a Spotify playlist accompaniment to it, which is again only missing a couple of entries.
My top albums of the 90s part one: 100-81
My top albums of the 90s part two: 80-61
My top albums of the 90s part three: 60-41
For many, the first Rammstein album they heard in the UK, and certain songs from this have of course since become somewhat ubiquitous. But look beyond Engel and Du hast, and you'll find a cracking album that has the big production that their big sound deserved, and track after track of fireworks that were interpreted literally on stage.
You all know the story by now, right? Three producers see a singer on TV, end up taking her on to front their band, they become alternative sensation and sell millions of records, and somehow end up doing a Bond theme. So it's still a joy to go back to the first album, to remind us why we loved Garbage in the first place. …

1.Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player,Creative Zen etc)
2. Put it on shuffle
3. Press play
4. For every question, type the song that's playing
5. When you go to a new question, press the next button
I guess that works ok

A bit odd...

26 Dec 2008, 08:16 by cataphoresisI've decided to cross-post my old "Best Of" lists that I had on my website retarsia.com. Here's 1993:
1994 is considered by my friends and I, as quite possibly the best year for music to date. I had an unbearable time selecting only 10 albums for this list (sorry Biggie). 1994 gave me some of my favorite albums ever. If you don't believe me, you're a schmuck. Here's my best of '94...
10. Dos Dedos Mis Amigos - Pop Will Eat Itself
Reflections: This album, though not widely known, is one of my favorites. It's odd, but it really rocks. The Poppies were never big in America (I caught them once on tour with NIN and Manson), but after seeing the video for 'Ich Bin Ein Auslander' late night one day on MTV, I picked up the album, and was blown away. Produced by NIN's Reznor, his influence shows everywhere.
Best tracks: Everything's Cool, Ich Bin Ein Auslander, Fatman, Underbelly, Kick To Kill, Menofearthereaper
9. Purple - Stone Temple Pilots

For What You Dream Of
4 Nov 2008, 00:27 by DarthemedThis Halloween was the public debut of Mexican Space Train, a non sequitor-style joke of a band. With a keyboardist, guitarist, a preselected playlist of sample material, and a delay pedal to run it all through, it was an interesting sound result.
For posterity, here's the playlist that time allowed.
1.) Unpleasant Alley At Night
2.) An Urgent Reconstruction
3.) The Twilight Zone
4.) Broadcast Frequencies Converge
5.) Dream Song
6.) Ubu Noir
7.) Pretty When You Cry
8.) Impaled Butterfly
10.) Nosferatu (feat. Mr. Lif)
14.) For Whom the Bell Tolls
15.) Help Me I Am in Hell
16.) Black Light District
17.) Tubular Bells - Part 1 (Exposed Edit)
18.) Music Box
19.) Doll's Polyphony
Deepest thanks to Jackson Diner and Philip Spann, respective guitarist and keyboardist. Couldn't have done it without them.
26 Oct 2008, 02:36 by MoogleFanI've been working on this playlist since around 2005 or so, using many of these songs in Halloween mixes at my house, for friends, at my former school, events, etc., etc., and often on shuffle at various times of the year. I'm sure there is still a lot missing here, so suggesting artists, albums, and tracks that are Halloween-suitable (or just good for spookiness, haunting introspection and/or dark-ish party music in general) is very much welcome. Even if they're from artists that I have on here, because, in all probability, I've missed some glaringly obvious ones. What's more, if you're a subscriber you can play all the streamable ones I've listed from my Halloween tag-station here: http://www.last.fm/listen/usertags/mooglefan/halloween
Legend: # = my additions, ** = others' suggestions
Here's the list of Halloween tracks, LAST EDITED: 10/31/2008
Where Fools Go - 12 Rounds
Hell's Bells - AC/DC
That Voodoo! - Adam and the Ants
Vampires - Adam Ant

23 May 2008, 17:44 by AnnaDraconidaUnless you listen to bubblegum-pop all day, you're likely to encounter certain pieces of music that you just don't listen to in a dark, empty house. Because they're all sorts of weird.
Some of the songs that can freak me out include:
Laibach: To The New Light - Goddamn! I remember listening to the Jesus Christ Superstars album for the 1st time, and it was all fine and dandy until this song came up and the distorted, hellish voice boomed into my ears:
Brother of mine...
I was home alone, late at night, and I just had to get up and turn on the lights. Just in case...
Apocalyptica: Leave Me Alone - Released only as a B-side on the Reflections SE (called Reflections Revised), this is totally different from anything else Apo has ever done, and defies description. Starts out in an eerily calm way, then cellos distorted beyond recognition lash out repeatedly at the listener. Brrr!
Nine Inch Nails: Eraser & all its versions/remixes - This song is so fucked up. …
