7 Jan 2007, 02:59 by durga2112I got this idea in sort of a roundabout way whilst reading a journal entry on this site a few days ago. Someone was wondering what their top songs or artists would be if they could somehow scrobble ALL of the music they have ever listened to, rather than just music that is played on the computer. While I still can't quite do that, I can try to keep track of music that I listen to away from the computer and then post journal entries about that music. To simplify things a little, I'll only list albums that I listen to in their entirety (or at least a significant part of them).
Anyway, enough blah-blahing for now. Today, while in the kitchen, I listened to:
Live at Benaroya Hall (most of disc 1)
I have been enjoying Audioslave's self-titled album so much since getting it for Christmas that I decided to get Revelations when I saw it for sale in a record store yesterday. I'm sure I'll have more to say about it once I've had more time to digest it, but I really liked what I heard. …
2 Jun 2006, 04:08 by Dr_IkariDue to the fact I may never ever get to see Pearl Jam playing live, I decided to make my fantasy PJ setlist...That's right: the one I'd like to see in their concert at El Campín Stadium:
Nothing As It Seems
World Wide Suicide
Rockin' in the Free World
Off He Goes
State of Love and Trust
I Got Shit
All or None
So, Mr Vedder...if you EVER see this journal, please come to Bogotá and play this setlist for me and my friends, OK?
Any PJ Setlists you wanna share? Opinions?
29 Apr 2006, 14:58 by m_notleyLet's start out by saying that Binaural is my favourite Pearl Jam album (so far). I haven't heard the new one yet, but what I have heard sounds awesome so far.
So, why is it my favourite PJ album? It's hard to explain. Binaural is an album that takes a lot of time and a lot of listens to get into, even demands it, but it rewards that time spent very well.
At first the songs don't seem to flow too well, they come across as a bit random, but for me they eventually formed into a really gorgeous listening experience that really reaches into me. Here's track by track:
1. Breakerfall 8/10
A powerful rocker that starts things off with a bang, short and sweet. Full of energy, and I love the double-octave harmonies through the verse. Great title/lyric too.
2. Gods' Dice 7/10
Not quite as engaging as Breakerfall, but keeping up the early theme on this album of fast rockers and a nice catchy chorus.
3. Evacuation 6/10
Maybe the weakest song on the album, this finishes up the opening barrage of three short, fast rock songs. …
