2 Nov 2011, 14:22 de Luis_de_SousaTantra was one of the few bands/artists (and I really mean few, maybe less than five) that where able to produce progressive music in Portugal in the 1970s. If up to 1974 music in general was highly constrained by the Fascist regime, after that progressive/avant-garde efforts were taken as revivalist expressions of right wing elitism and voted to ostracism. I can't tell you the impact this LP had in the music scene at the time (too young for that) but the name Tantra survived as a reference, even during the long 20 year period of inactivity between their third and fourth alba. If not very popular, Tantra were highly regarded for achieving an uncommonly high degree of musicianship for a rock band in Portugal.

13 Abr 2010, 2:21 de earthcrossingRecently I hit '1300' artists in my library, so I thought I'd make a list of them all for posterity! Of course, I already removed one of those artists frmo my library during this process (it was my music, but under the wrong name...) and there are others I can probably get rid of immediately. But I want to take care in doing so.
Anyway, without further ado...this is the result of coming on up 5 years of scrobbling here at Last.fm, and away from it (on iPod). There have been times when I wasn't able to scrobble, so a lot of data wasn't recorded then. But other than those times, this is what we have...
* A Camp (7s)
* A Perfect Circle (210s)
* A Streetlight Song (1)
* Abbe May (88s)
* Abbe May and the Rockin' Pneumonia (5s)
* Abra Moore (7s)
* Ace of Base (2s)
* AC/DC (64s)
* Adam Cohen (2s)
* Adele (2s)
* Aerosmith (8s)
* Afghan Whigs (1)
* AFI (29s)
* Aimee Allen (22s)

11 Sep 2006, 3:03 de Victor2KI am a big fan of the one-hit wonders, those bands that had one only hit and nothing else. Or those that have a song that is more keen to identify them than the rest.
I can point that the 80s has the most quantity of OHWs than ever. Maybe the sound and the style created this range of bands known for one song.
Here I do a list divided into International and Brazilian OHW. I hope you all can like and point something
here it is
Alannah Myles - Black Velvet
Lipps Inc. - Funkytown
Soft Cell - Tainted Love
Jordan Knight - Give it to You
Dexys Midnight Runners - Come On Eileen
The Outfield - Your Love
Martika - Toy Soldiers
Sisqo - Thong Song
Til' Tuesday - Voices Carry
Counting Crows - Mr. Jones
Unwritten Law - Seein' Red
Men Without Hats - The Safety Dance
M/A/R/R/S - Pump up the Volume
Fastball - The Way
Square Heads - Happy
Love & Rockets - So Alive
Baha Men - Who Let The Dogs Out?
Eiffel 65 - Blue
11 May 2006, 22:21 de gratishoraHere's a list of my 20 favourite tracks on the CBS Top 100 2005 Edition list. Original track rankings are (in CBS order) 1,2,3,4,5,10,12,13,17,18,38,39,64,68,69,78,79,88,93 and 94.
 The Chase - 069
This track gets the 20th and last place. I could easily have included one of the B.W.H.-tracks or possibly Laserdance instead.
 Are You Loving - 094
Yes sir I am loving! Powerful vocals along with a very likable melody (even though that sound reminds me of pan flute).
 Believe in yourself (remix) - 093
Suprising changes in energy density always helps! I like that there's something lurking behind the sweeping sound scenery.
 Disco Lunar Module - 039
Stunning sounds together with a TEE-like beat gives a certain type of drive to it.
 Symphony Electronique (Long) - 003
Just lovely! I wish it could go on for another 16 minutes. This is possibly as far away you can come from my usual favourite genre - Industrial. Extremely slow and very muffled beats relative to the melody. …
26 Abr 2006, 14:56 de frondTantra "Delirium"
Holy crap, what happened with one of my favourite prog bands? When they regrouped a few years ago and released a studio album, I had very little hope it'd be good, but in the end, it didn't suck completely. This one nearly does. Programmed drums, of the spastic inept kind, and a general disjointed vibe, very little can be saved here. Stick with the 70s album, their masterpieces. 7.
15 Dic 2005, 23:26 de ElBandidoRecommendations that I picked up or got here or at some other site (rateyourmusic, gnoosic, pandora,...) and have to listen to a full album of, some time.
Richard & Mimi Fariña
Youngblood Brass Band
Hope Sandoval & The Warm Inventions
Gorky's Zygotic MinciMwng
Front Line Assembly
Afro Celt Sound System
My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult

9 Nov 2005, 2:57 de ElBandidoA few cd's that are on my wishlist, some for a long time already:
Kiss the Anus of a Black Cat's first album (ordered it, think of something like Woven Hand, 16 Horsepower, Current 93 or the darkest Nick Cave)
A Livingroom Hush
Tantra(which was recommended by Questra)
Einstürzende Neubauten(Haus der Lüge or Kollaps)
Malcolm Middleton's new cd
Fence's new cd
a Charles Mingus cd
Dizzie Rascal's first cd
The Cat's Miaow's A Kiss and a Cuddle
Yesterday Was Dramatic, Today is Ok
The Great Annihilator
and different others, I like having cd's of different styles yes...
