    Re: Weirdest Favorite Album

    I wouldn't call this the weirdest, but I think one of the most unappreciated albums I have is Chicago Transit Authority, Chicago's first album from when that was the full name (until the real CTA forced them to change it).

    While it has the brass that they and Blood Sweat & Tears made popular, it has some of the best guitar work and is just a good Rock N Roll album. It is a far cry from the pop albums the band made afterwards (although there's hardly a guy my age who didn't slow dance to Color My World from the second album). Anyway, I'd recommend it to folks.

    Actual Tigers - Gravelled and Green

    I only know two other people who've even heard of these guys, and that's because I gave them the CD and told them how good it was (they agreed). They sold only a handful of their 2001 debut CD, then broke up. Tim Seely was the lead guy and has done some solo work since then.

    It's a great album.

    I always liked this one, as much for the story as the music.


    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    Whatever I deem good is not weird. It's just good.

    I don't know if it's "weird" but A-ha Hunting High and Low is a great album
    Ok, maybe it is weird
    More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.

    Bulletboys self-titled debut album. Harder and bluesier than most hair-metal.

    It's a cover album of a bunch of b hits from the 60's, it's not original material and it's not derivative of their early or later stuff.

    Fair enough. I just figured it was because Yo La Tengo doesn't sound like a mainstream band. Fakebook is one of my favorite releases of theirs, though.

    Miles Davis "*****es Brew" is pretty weird.

    György Ligeti's "Ramifications" was pretty weird; plus it had an Escher print as the cover.

    A lot of "glitch" music is pretty weird.

    Dunno if I have a favorite "weird" album, unless Zappa's "Joe's Garage" counts.

    "panic" only comes from having real expectations
