  • The Delightful 65 of the 90's! (Best Albums 1990-1999)

    1 Radiohead - OK Computer
    (1997)
    Using the textured soundscapes of The Bends as a launching pad, Radiohead delivered another startlingly accomplished set of modern guitar rock with OK Computer. The anthemic guitar heroics present on Pablo Honey and even The Bends are nowhere to be heard here. Radiohead have stripped away many of the obvious elements of guitar rock, creating music that is subtle and textured yet still has the feeling of rock & roll. Even at its most adventurous -- such as the complex, multi-segmented "Paranoid Android" -- the band is tight, melodic, and muscular, and Thom Yorke's voice effortlessly shifts from a sweet falsetto to vicious snarls. It's a thoroughly astonishing demonstration of musical virtuosity and becomes even more impressive with repeated listens, which reveal subtleties like electronica rhythms, eerie keyboards, odd time signatures, and complex syncopations. …

  • 21 years, 21 albums

    Well, this started off as an easy idea: look at my albums, and decide which one was the best for every year since my year of birth (1987). I guess it kinda took off because when I'm writing about music I can't seem to quit.

    I probably should've split this up in multiple journals, but since I was working in Word I didn't get to that. Ah well. A cookie for everyone who manages to read it all. Two cookies for everyone who suggests an album to me.

    Final note, this took me 3 days to write and 2 more to add tags, so don’t complain if I made a spelling error somewhere.


    1987
    The Uplift Mofo Party Plan

    My choice: The Uplift Mofo Party Plan
    Runner-up: N/A

    Oh crap, not the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Not that they suck, they just uh, well they’re just shit nowadays. As a matter of fact they were shit in ’87. Probably more shit then today. I don’t know if it’s funk or rock or a mix of styles but I know one thing: it’s out of control. And no, that’s not a good thing here. …
  • Music to Set the Mood for Obama's Acceptance Speech

    28 Aug 2008, 05:21 by DarthBob

    This evening we'll all be watching (or at least I'll be watching, I don't know about all you libertarian fuckwads out there on the internets) Obama make his acceptance speech in front of a crowd of 75,000 at Invesco Field in Denver (curiously enough the city where the New World Order will emerge from their underground bunkers at Dever International Airport then take over the world).

    In celebration of the event and because acoustic sets by Springsteen and Bon Jovi don't quite cut it for me, I have compiled a playlist of songs to listen to get one's self in the mood for watching the speech.

    Now what was the criteria for selecting these tunes? I felt they could be related to Obama in some way (Theme from Shaft), be vaguely political (Dollars & Cents and Cosmonaut), be explicitly political (Fight the Power), be about my pessimistic view of the electoral process (Everything Falls Apart), or be concessions to the Hillary crowd (Kool Thing). …
  • Too much California music can affect your health!

    27 Aug 2008, 18:59 by c-rebehn

    For all day now, I've been listening to songs about/from California, mostly the ones eekgeekface once sent me, plus the ones everyone knows and the ones I always had just because.
    So well, staring at the screen all day, including Google Earth distances to LAX for the AI flightplan for the Flight Simulator I'm working on right now, and listening to that music, you get somehow carried away. And when I look out now and see the grey, dark, rainy sky, I know I'm at home. And it makes me sad. I would be sad without the music anyway, but it makes me feel like the moment of getting ripped out of this enviroment has just been. You could say it keeps me close to the memories. You could also say it keeps the wounds open, not letting them scar. Open wounds hurt, and they could get infected and get worse, as we all know.
    It's only been ten days since I left L.A. but it feels like an eternity. On one side, I don't want to let go of it, to accept that it's over and will drift further and further away…
