20 May 2013, 14:58 by cisnenegroIt's easy: my intention is to listen to the whole list by Robert Dimery in 'The 1001 albums you must hear before you die'. Fortunately there's a few albums I have already listened to.

13 Feb 2010, 02:23 by ZeppledelinPerhaps not intentional, but Jimbobbins' late comment on my age-old list of debut albums made me realize how long it has been since my last journal post. Thanks for the much-needed inspiration. So, here’s another go at it, not only because I felt the old list needed an update, but also since I still have an affinity toward the unadulterated sincerity of debut albums. Let’s do a top 30 this time, shall we?
30. Wu-Tang Clan - Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)
The old school has a tendency to grow tedious; their innovations not so apparent anymore, but at least some of them retain their awesomeness. In this case it is possibly a matter of never being revolutionary, rather rock solid, wrapping together the best parts of their gangsta roots and adding a pleasant, if not entirely dead serious Eastern mysticism to the mix. And they did have humor, an incredible flow, personality and coolness, and the Wu-Tang definitely weren’t nothing to fuck with.

10 Oct 2008, 16:22 by LlorenzaThe Sonics – Here Are The Sonics
Well, I never heard of The Sonics before. When I mentioned them to someone, the reply was: "You mean Sonic Youth?" No, I didn't! So apparently I'm not the only one. No wonder: The Sonics were only successful in the Nothern United States, and Belgium is still in Europe. They did deserve it though to be famous worldwide: this is nothing more than an extraordinary album.
Where the Rolling Stones made their music rougher by playing it faster and harder, The Sonics make their music rougher by playing badly (sometimes you really wonder why the drummer is slamming the way he is, and -especially- if it was meant to be like that), shouting a lot and not really trying to sing beautifully. And damn, it is fantastic! Garage rock and punk avant la lettre! They have some songs of their own, which are the best ones. Witch is one hell of a starter, but especially Strychnine doesn't sound dated at all. The Sonics beat The Beatles easily with their version of Money and Roll Over Beethoven…
11 Jul 2008, 00:55 by viker1. How did you get into 31?
Magnolia Electric Co.
It wasn't until 2007 when the band released Sojourner. I had liked some of what I'd heard from Songs:Ohia and thought I'd give this a shot too. Despite liking Sojourner pretty well, I still haven't dug much into their back catalog.
2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22?
Probably Chelsea Hotel. Or Hallelujah - though I don't know if it was his version or not.
3. What's your favourite lyric by 29?
Meh, I dunno.
"And when the broken hearted people
Living in the world agree,
There will be an answer, Let It Be."
4. What is your favourite album by 49?
5. How many albums by 13 do you own?
Physically? Zero. Digital? I think 12.
6. What is your favourite song by 50?
7. Is there a song by 4 that makes you sad?
Definitely. A Change Is Gonna Come - there is so much emotion in his…
