    <i>Happiness... Is Not a Fish That You Can Catch</i> by <b><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OLP">Our Lady Peace</a></b>

    Very interesting and unique Canadian music from the '90s grunge era.

    Mike Turner helped my former band out with our EP two years ago. Fantastic guy.

    Last night I put on The Velvet Underground & Nico for the first time in about two years. I do think it's brilliant, but the self-titled album is IMO better, and I do still think TVU&N is a bit on the weird side. Nonetheless, this album possibly shaped music in a more profound way than any other, and it can absolutely be heard. Highlights are Sunday Morning, Run Run Run, and I'll Be Your Mirror.

    I'm not sure how I missed this thread. Music is my religion- even more so than Bond. I listen to countless genres, but at the moment I'm really digging...

    Nova Heart: Beautiful Boys EP (2012)

    This band is from Beijing, and their dark and sexy electronic sounds coupled with the lovely Helen Feng's hypnotic vocals make for awesome listening. Here is a highlight from their 4-track EP:

    Pink Floyd - A Saucerful of Secrets

    After 20 years, I´m starting to understand Nick Mason´s drumming.

    Suicide live at CBGB 1977. A lot of booing from parts of the audience. Funny.

    Just picked up the CBGB movie soundtrack, which is really a collection of songs that compliment the film and the scene. Do like the old Ramones, New York Dolls, Heartbreakers stuff. Dead Boys are good too in small doses.
    Police, Stooges, Blondie and Talking Heads big hits are included to give the disc a commercial appeal too, I guess.

    @QBranch the nova heart vocals are haunting
    @boldfinger re Mason's drumming. I've never thought one way or the other about it. Thanks for pointing out. You've upped the Floyd IQ. Floyd discussions always seem to focus on Waters vs Gilmour.

    Listening to James Brown GodFather of Soul - current track playing Superbad think its his best track.

    Now listening too First Blood soundtrack, one of Jerry Goldsmiths best work.

    Miles Davis LIVE AT THE FILLMORE EAST. All four full shows from 1971. Outstanding.

    I love some Miles Davis. I put 'Move' on repeat from time to time and just jam to it.

    It can be confusing for a while when you took music school too seriously, because Mason´s not your average groove monster, but instead at times more like a painter. It´s hard to describe ;-). But he did actually paint too.
    All that Waters vs Gilmour stuff is highly entertaining, but you just have to listen to their respective albums to understand that Pink Floyd was four individuals working together. As Gilmour said, "you delude yourself if you think anything else".

  • Electric - The Cult.

    Dare you not to do air guitar to anyone of the tracks on this most superb album from the Goth godfathers.



    Sign o the times - Prince and the revolution. Seminal music.




    Beats & Bruises - Miss Li - just great catchy pop - they even play their own instruments.

    (Love The Cult, FMUN. )

    The Dandy Warhols-Dandys Rule OK?
    Maybe not their best album, but it is the only one I own. Still funky.

    Interesting about Mason's drumming. I'll listen closer for it.
    I find Gilmour much stronger as a solo artist than Waters. I like his eerie guitar playing, but yes, Floyd most definitely was 4 guys working to create the unique Floyd sound. Waters' grandiose ideas and lyrical content needed the others' musicianship to really soar.
    I don't find Water's solo work very listenable at all. I think he's best off, touring the stronger material of The Wall, as he's been doing.

    Gilmour is a musical prodigy no doubt, at least with string instruments, he just needs to look at them and they already sound great. And he knows how to construct a compact band sound. That´s what makes the two albums recorded without Waters so listenable, even though they don´t even try to get anywhere near pre-Final-Cut stuff concept-wise. However Gilmour´s last solo album, on which he didn´t try to sound like Pink Floyd, was quite boring I thought. I read he´s working on new stuff, but after On an Island, I´m not holding my breath.
    Waters on the other hand tended to be self-indulgent with his concept ideas and didn´t show much feeling for a defined band sound. If I´m not mistaken, Gilmour was kind of a musical director for The Wall, which is not surprising when one listens to how close to those shows´ sound he got on Pulse. Amused to death was kind of a great album, but that was again mainly thanks to Jeff Beck´s guitar playing, if you ask me. I saw Waters live, and even though he had nothing but huge talent in the band, including three outstanding guitar players, the whole band sounded very much like patchwork.

    Actually I read that Waters too wants to make another album. Since Mason seems to be friends with both of them, they could work together. But I could imagine they had so many law suits over the Pink Floyd name that they wouldn´t want to go there ever again ;-).

    Linda, Miss Li, is actually a friend of mine! :) We live in the same city.

    Edgar Rothermich´s recording of the Blade Runner soundtrack.

    Highly recommendable! It´s better than the Vangelis version. Usually I´m not at all for re-recordings of film scores. But Rothermich does it bit by bit (99%) exactly as it is heard in the film (unlike all Vangelis releases), with exactly the same synth sounds and atmosphere.

    Some Death Metal fans here aye? Ever listen to Obituary @Luds?

    Anyways been spinning the O Brother, Where Art Thou soundtrack (old timey and warm and fun) and Wu-Tang's 36 Chambers in the car.

    The producers (Zang Tuum Tumb) were really the stars here, as with The Art of Noise and Frankie Goes to Hollywood.

    My favourite Beatles album. I recently picked up the latest remaster. Sounds great. So many recognizable songs, not only the big singles but a lot of the "B" stuff too.

    I did like the overall sound of On An Island. The distinct Gilmour guitar sound is front and centre, as are the Gilmour Floyd vocals, so the album does evoke a familiar Floyd sound, I think, but it doesn't rival Division Bell at all.
    But other than "Island's" general sound and vibe, it's a not a terribly interesting album. Listenable, but not much more.
    I saw Floyd live on their last tour (1994). What struck me was the near perfect live renditions of both complete Dark Side of the Moon and classic Wish You Were Here stuff.
    Also, despite playing a 60,000 seat football stadium, the sound was the best I've heard at a rock concert anywhere, indoor or out. Despite the gigantic venue, the sound was akin to a top stereo system played in one's living room - both crystal clear and loud, with no bass distortion or anything annoying. Uncanny how the band managed to perfect the outdoor acoustics.

    Timmer, re Abbey Road: I especially love listening to the second side all the way through to the finish. Although Here Comes the Sun is on the first side and it is sublime. The whole thing is a masterpiece, truly.

    Yes, I heard on the radio Christopher Lee had released a rock album with a rock band where he did the vocals to celebrate his 92nd birthday. Go Chris!
