The Stone Roses, "I Want to be Adored."

Their self-titled debut album is awesome. The second one isn't bad either.

The Stone Roses, "I Want to be Adored."

One of those bands that most people have never heard of. I had two of their CDS, lost them in a move and then picked up their greatest hits about a year ago. Great stuff. "I have a dream, I’ve seen the light Don’t put it out, say she’s alright, yeah,
she’s my sister."

Some things that have been in and out of my CD player the past week:

System of a Down - The screaming vocals and driving music mixed with some of the best pop hooks around make for something very cool. And tough to describe to anyone.

Springsteen: Devils and Dust

Foo Fighters - In Your Honor - this one hasn't caught on with me yet, but it will.

Coldplay: X & Y. Shouldn't like them but I do. Hopefully another generation's U2 - I don't mind being too old for great music.

I agree.

I've been listening to 30 Seconds to Mars (http://www.thirtysecondstomars.com) a LOT lately (new album comes out Aug. 16!!), and I throw in the new Better than Ezra when I need a break from 30STM.

And for those folks in Clermont and Brown counties, Better than Ezra is the same band you know as "Gooder than Ezra."

Oh relax. I lived there myself. :)

Bob Marley's "Natty Dread" is playing now, off the "Songs of Freedom" box set.

If you do not own the "Songs of Freedom" box set, go get it now. I'll wait here.


EDIT: And in a strange coincidence, as I was typing the above, another Stone Roses song cycled on. Doo-doo, doo-doo, doo-doo, doo-doo.

I've been listening to the new The National album, Alligator. It's pretty good.

You can hear it in it's entirety here:

Also if you feel in the mood for something really "out there", check out Antony and the Johnsons. Basically, Antony is a tranvestite caberet singer with a pretty good sized cult following. He even got Rufus Wainwright, Lou Reed, Devendra Banhart to help out on his new album. Here is an mp3:

Hells yeah.

And, like you said 'Second COming" is highly underrated. Wonder what this band woul dhave done had they stayed together. 'Course now John Squire and Ian brown hate each other, so fat chance of that. And mani's been working with primal Scream.

Ah well. They were good though.

Weird, this morning on my drive to work I listened to "Fool's Gold," which was the first time I broke out the Stone Roses in a long while.

Right now I am listening to My Bloody Valentine's Loveless, which will be followed up by Common's new one, Be.

On the other hand, if you've ever seen the late great A&E TV show "Cracker", staring the incomperable Robbie Coltrane, you would know that there are a lot of nuts in Manchester. Heck of a socer team though.

Don't mind at all, considering that I would pass on most of what's been posted here (except the Jack Johnson).

Back when MTV did their Unplugged series, I think the Kiss show (1996) was the highest rated and sold the most CDs. It was the original band's (Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Peter Criss and Ace Frehley) first appearance together since they broke up in the early 80s and it was also what spurred their hugely successful reunion tour that followed.

I agree RFA. I'm a HUGE Cornell fan - I can't think of anyone who can basically screech at the top of his lungs one minute and then sing a beautiful soulful ballad the next. I really like his solo CD as well - especially songs like Follow My Way, When I'm Down, Preaching. Any particular songs you like off the new album? Personally I love #1 Zero and Heavens Dead.

My top three at the moment (as these things change!) would be:
1. Your Time Has Come
2. #1 Zero
3. Out of Exile

Cornell is so talented. This was obvious to me when I first heard Soundgarden playing stuff like Rusty Cage & Outshined. Kim Thaiyl, the lead guitar player for Soundgarden, was a decent player. But I think Morello takes Cornell to a different level with his unique style of playing. And with Cornell's songwriting/singing abilities it takes Morello to a different level that he was not able to experience with Rage singer Zach De Larocha. A GOOD MIX!

Dream Theater - "When Dreams and Days Unite"

Nice pick, '62. Any DT CD is going to be a good one IMO! I am a big fan... enough that I bought a guitar that was autographed by the band off of ebay. That was the "I am single and have money to burn days"! Still have that special guitar though. I last saw them live at Annie's Outdoor (Cincy) a few years ago w/ Queensryche. Amazing musicians.

Over the last five years, about 75% of my listening is to kids' music. Unfortunately, people tend to write this stuff off, but I have found some real gems in this genre.

Some of my faves:

Dan Zanes - he did a song called "Wonderwheel" on the For the Kids compilation album that is one of the most beautiful songs I've heard. And he seems to be friends with everyone and they all perform on his CDs. I mean, Debby Harry is on one of them!?

The Wiggles - these guys are probably way too kid oriented for most adults, but I think they are great musicians.

TMBG - even the stuff these guys write for adults is like kids music.

Ralph Covert - a folk/rock guitar instructor who really doesn't consider himself a kids' musician. I think that is what makes a great kids' performer, someone who isn't trying to dumb it down for them.

Raffi- Yes, Raffi. The guy can play; I never get tired of him.

Jerry Garcia - his old time repertoire was enormous and he gravitated toward the sillier sounding ones. His CD with David Grisman is a masterpiece of traditional music.

Doc Watson - see above and give "Doc and Dawg" a try sometime.

Was it at Riverbend? I saw him there in 85 with the IE's (broke my ankle in the rain) and 88 (he played Cripple Creek Ferry on the banjo) that was a Blue Notes tour. 87 was with Crazy Horse

Since Neil lived up the road from us in Palo Alto he played alot in the Bay Area, I've seen him maybe 15 times in many different venues and bands. The best was a cable special he did in the late 80's Live In A Rusted Out Garage with Crazy Horse, and they did some role playing with some Jim Henson (like?) charactors.

great progressive punk rock. on the Good Appolo album, you can hear more of the Rush, Dream Theater, and Iron Maiden influence on Claudio.

progressive metal with a heavy thrash influence. i think Alexi Laiho might be better than Steve Vai AND Jon Petrucci

Johnny Cash-Greatest Hits (1978)

That is essentially Willies 2nd "Concept" album. Phases and Changes was the 1st, and came out the year before.

Willie and Waylon went in the the record company and IIRC Waylon was trying to get his guy to produce and release Willies new album, which was way sparse in the era of the Billy Sherrell Nashville sound.

Waylons guy says, "if we could put some strings on it and background vocals...."

Waylons reply was essentially "You dumb SOB, I'll take this record somewhere else and my business as well."

The star always wins.

A couple of you have mentioned Nada Surf. Let Go was my favorite album of 2003, and while the new record isn't quite up to those heights, it's good enough to get me to their show in Portland this week. Magnet magazine has a really great and in-depth story on the band in their latest issue.

The Weight is a Gift doesn't really have anything to prove, it's just fun, confident pop songs. Let Go was more Nada Surf's one final claim at being relevant and they aced it. The production on The Weight is a Gift is also more geared towards radio and short, compact pop tunes than Let Go's more expansive and ambient sound.

If you listen to the bonus disc that came with some copies of the new album, you'll have a different perspective on the album and the band itself. The original accoustic version of Concrete Bed sounds similar to the Blizzard of '77 and other Let Go stuff.

Oh and I'm also going to see them this Saturday in Los Angeles. Looking forward to it.

Franz Ferdinand's new release: You Could Have It So Much Better.

I really like The Arcade Fire a lot. Zero 7 offers some great "chill" music. I'm going to see Galactic next month (they're a fun jazz fusion jam band). Ben Harper is great, and I would love to see him live. Everybody is raving about The Decemberists.

Five years ago, I was really depressed with the state of music. The Strokes and The White Stripes ushered in a new era of good tunes. :beerme:

For the most part, I have no idea what people are talking about on this thread. So, it makes me wonder not as much what they are listening to, but how they tend to find out about new music?

I think I must be an oddball with very different tastes, because I don't have a clue who most of the artists are who are mentioned on this thread. I'm into Irish music, classical, some jazz, some gospel, and I own one country CD. It's a pretty nice recording called Neck and Neck with Chet Atkins and Mark Knopfler together doing some really impressive guitar work.

WOXY, that's so 1998. :)

Satellite radio and iPods/iTunes have changed the rules for learning about new music.

Satellite radio makes it easier to identify new music that you like immediately, since it displays the singer and song name on the dashboard. Moreover, the stations are much more tailored to very specific musical tastes, so you get a richer depth of musical experiences than you do on traditional radio. (Satellite radio's music stations are commercial free with little interruption from the DJs, so no downtime.)

Digital music lowers your financial risk for trying new music--you can buy a song for 99 cents (or take the Napster/Kazaa "five finger discount," if anyone is still doing that), rather than having to buy the full album for $10-15. And clearly, digital files make it much easier to share and exchange new music with your friends.

"Somewhere there's a reason
Why things go like they do
Somewhere there's a reason
Why somethings just fall through
We don't always see them
For what they really are
But I know there's a reason,
Just can't see it from this far

Maybe I don't like it, but I have no choice
I know that somewhere, someone hears my voice

I thought I knew it all
I thought I had it made
How could it end this way?
I thought I knew

Somewhere there's a reason
Why things don't go my way
Somewhere there's a reason
That I cannot explain
Just like the change of season,
Just may not be my turn
But I know there's a reason,
The lesson's mine to learn

Maybe I don't like it, but I have no choice
I know that somewhere, someone hears my voice

I thought I knew it all
I thought I had it made
How could it end this way?
I thought I knew"

Sufjan Stevens - Illinois

This is outstanding. Now that I have I-tunes, I almost never buy entire albums, but this one should be purchased in its entirety.

For those of you who don't know this guy, picture everything good about alternative music of the 80s/90s and cross that with the Frank Zappaesque orchestrations and humor of the 60s/70s.

It's not all just silliness, but it's hard to resist a song called "Come on feel the Illionoise" or a biographical tribute to John Wayne Gacy.

Over the past few weeks I've heard some songs by Matt Nathanson on Yahoo's free Launch player so I decided to check him out further. So a few days ago I picked up his album Beneath These Fireworks (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0000DD55R/qid=1136787955/sr=1-1/ref=sr_1_1/103-0162455-6787842?s=music&v=glance&n=5174) and have been very pleasantly surprised. I enjoy every single song on his album and can just throw the CD on and let it play without skipping around, which is pretty rare for me.

If you like Counting Crows, Dave Matthews Band, Howie Day or Jason Mraz, there's a good chance you might like this guy.

And if you like slightly harder stuff, you might enjoy Greenwheel (http://greenwheel.net/index.php), who allows you to listen to a bunch of their stuff (whole songs) online in the site's own MP3 player.

Todd Snider "That Was Me" - which is essentially remixed greatest hits from his earliest 4 offerings. Still cool even though I have the original CD's.

RFA66- I was really into Queensryche's "The Warning" my freshman year of college. Quite a "wordy" album (yes, I had it on vinyl!) - most of the lyrics still occupy some portion of my brain and resurface from time to time. But I liked Operation Mindcrime also - I think it was really only the 2nd or 3rd concept album I had ever known at the time, and it was pretty good. I'll have to give it a listen again.

Take Hold of the Flame was the first song that I heard by QR, bucksfan. I immediately went out and bought the album (yes, vinyl for me too).... a used album at an Ohio U. second-time-around basement record store. I still have it!

QR definitely has a lot of substance to their lyrics. They are currently recording Operation Mindcrime II. Ronnie James Dio is a guest vocalist on the new album (singing the part of Dr. X, if you remember the storyline to Oper. Mind.). I look forward to its release, but will not expect it to be better than Operation Mindcrime I. That would be hard to match IMO!

I still have my album too - bought I believe at Singing Dog Records on High Street. Thanks for the head's up on the new QR album. Admittedly I do not listen as much to that "genre" of music any more, but I still enjoy it. It will be intersting to hear RJD's role.

On a related note, I thought my beloved turntable had died the other day. Evidently my mom, who had been watching our 4 yr old daughter, had decided to try to play a record for her. Why she tried to do that, after all these years ( I have had the thing since 1987), I do not know when we have CDs, DVDs, VHS, etc that my mom CAN operate! But she tried her hand at my linear tracking turntable, which is not at all difficult unless you have some problems. She must have had some problems, because when I got home from work I could not get the needle to set down on the record. Then after much finagling (sp?) with my auto/manual and sensitivity setting switches, I got it to play. I never brought it up to her, but I just asked our daughter not to have Gramma play records anymore! :laugh:

It's pretty good GAC. It's a little "precious" or "twee" as they say in England. It definately doesn't ROCK or anything.

[Q] From Peppel: “In your answer to the question about goody two shoes on the web site, there is a word twee. I can’t find it, other than a noise made by a small bird, and I would like to know its meaning.”

[A] Ah yes, another of my curious Briticisms. It means excessively or affectedly quaint, sentimental or mawkish, sometimes coupled with words like nauseatingly. It’s a strongly negative word, and a very useful one, that is in common British use. It appeared at the beginning of the twentieth century to mean something dainty or sweet, a girly and gushing word. It appears to have developed from tweet, not the noise a bird makes, but a childish attempt at saying sweet. It might have been helped along by a feeling that it could be a blend of tiny and wee (Scots for small), though it isn’t.

Picked it up last night and listened to it. Typical, pure McCartney. It definitely is alot more mellower (or melancholy) than his last couple of efforts. I really enjoyed the Flaming Pie and Driving Rain albums.

That Sir Paul album is spectacular in my opinion. I listen to it almost daily.

I have every one of his solo efforts and also some rare recordings (live performances, etc).

I made up a double CD of McCartney about a year ago. It really doesn't have any of his hits or really recognizable songs (I already have all of those); but is made up of miscellaneous songs off of all his solo albums.

I titled it after one of his earlier songs... Singalong Junk. :)

Like the songs "Too Much Rain" "Fine Line".

His writing has taken a more serious tone about life anymore, and the void that has been created since he lost Linda and his kids are all grown and gone. It seems, anyway to me, that alot of his songs are written with Linda in mind.

Nothing like what it was then (you list all those 80s/early 90s bands all at once and it's almost unbelievable), but still quite unique albeit not as well known. A lot of stuff there is different to everything else being produced now, and Manchester musicians don't necessarily feel the need to head to London or the US like they do from almost ever other city in Britain, so they continue to build up their own great stuff without sounding like everybody else. It's kind of like a bubble over there. There's a ton of good modern stuff to check out from there and it's definitely a place well worth visiting if you want to see some good shows and talk to geniunely passionate musicians.

[end Manchester selling point]

I'm listening to Kelley Stoltz's new album, which I like a whole whole lot.

Coldplay......2nd favorite.

Just bought the Yardbirds..... 3 albums in 2 CD's..... includes the Beck and Page stuff (very limited, too sad)....and just the Page stuff. Too bad they had a hack in Mickey Most producing them. He tried to make them like Herman Hermits' singles type act. Are you freaking kidding me?

See ive only heard Riot city blues and Give Out But Don't Give Up and I really like G.o.B.D.G.U. Riot city has a few good songs also .But from what ive gathered these are basically the only 2 primal scream albums that sound like this sorta "exile on main street" era stones .

Funny how perm vaction and pump get all the great pub./reviews where as i think they both are a shadow of Done with mirrors .Done with mirrors is probablly my favorit aerosmith album including the old stuff .It just seems like they were just real raw and pissed off on this record.:beerme:

Yeah, and I guess those are my two least favorite albums by them. I prefer them when they're pushing their sound more, not doing Stones era rip-offs. Vanishing Point and Evil Heat were OK, but XTRMNTR sounds like a revolution on a disc. Six years on, listening to that album still blows my mind.
