As opposed to "just a little bit excellent"?

I'm sorry, but I'm getting sore from biting my tongue.

No offence; really.

i actually think i got that from a radio station that i used to listen to... it was kind of toungue-in-cheek. And actually, from grades 9-11 that was a rating in the report cards, i guess equivalent to perfect, although i'm not quite sure.

K'pla!

As a has-been musician, who's played a variety of genres, and a family of music lovers, my CD player, especially in the vehicle, has a diverse library:

Jimi Hendrix; Voodoo Child compilation (Father's Day gift)

Beastie Boys; Five Boroughs (also Father's Day gift)

Fastball; Fire Escape (very good!)

The Beatles; 67-70

Creed; debut CD (excellent!)

Rage Against the Machine; Renegades of Funk (love it)

Fats Domino Legacy (real Blues Icon)

Born on the Blues compilation (John Lee Hooker, Howlin Wolf, Etta James, Elmore James (no Relation), Muddy Waters, Buddy Guy , etc.)

2003 Vancouver International Jazz Festival Sampler (highly recommended)

Pearl Jam; Ten (loved it when it was new)

Humble Pie; First (old garage heavy blues circa 69-74)

Singer-songwriters compilation 67-72 (folk-rock nostalgia)

Foo Fighters; Learning to Fly (good stuff too)

Plus some others I can't remember now. Hey! I better go check my car to see if anyone has broken into it and stolen all those CDs out there!

Oh Lord, yes.

Re: The Streets. Mike Skinner is a likeable fellow, but I find The Streets largely unlistenable.

In my CD player is !!!'s 'Louden Up Now.' How it made me pogo this summer. I danced to it in Quesnel, BC. I danced to it in Sheffield, England. I danced to it in both Edinburgh and Glasgow. I took on newbie !!! acolytes much like the Edmund Fitzgerald took on water. Now I'm shimmying to the groovy hunka plastic as I move into my flat in Vancouver, BC. Returning to the world's finest city deserves a swellegant soundtrack, no?

Not typical of me, I've been playing Badalamenti's theme music from a 2000 movie, "The Beach" starring Leonard daVinci er ... DiCaprio.
Dreamy?. Beguiling ? It makes me imagine tropical paradise and a perfect lagoon with a waterfall for some reason or other.

The other day, my boyfriend found The Aeroplane Flies High box set by the Smashing Pumpkins in a thrift store for 10$. I have a very depeleted CD collection, so he picked it up for me... The cool thing about it was that I'd tried so hard to get it when it first came out, and had since given up.

I also bought the Bob Dylan Bootleg Series, Volumes 1-3 the other day. So, I'm gonna be listening to both of these for a long time.

That is one great bargain!

Currently listening to the Unicorns, gonna be Janis Joplin's 'Pearl' in a moment (none of these are ever actually in my CD player, mind. One of my few concessions to consumer society is my laptop/audigy/z640 setup. 'Mercedes Benz' in FLAC lossless probably only sounds better on vinyl )

The new Bjork, which I bought yesterday. It's indeed her most experimental work (what with much of the album's music constructed solely from vocal textures), but surprisingly accessible as well.

I like it.

Frank Zappa - Joe's Garage, Lauryn Hill, Jethro Tull, Roger Waters - Radio KAOS.

quote:
"Who needs information, when you're living in constant fear ..."

Roger Waters's third solo effort after leaving Pink Floyd in 1983 was "Radio K.A.O.S.," a story album about Billy, a young disabled man from Wales living in Los Angeles who can hear radio waves in his head. He eventually teaches himself to break out of his vegetative state by using computers to communicate with a local radio DJ, played by real-life air personalty Jim Ladd. (Ladd was with KMET at the time of the record's making.) When Billy uses his technical prowess to stage a mock nuclear battle, Waters concludes his commentary on our high-tech times and the abuse of global communication technology by the "war lords," with "The Tide Is Turning," a rare optimistic number from Waters, focusing on the Live Aid concert, which was organized, coincidentally, by Bob Geldolf, who played Pink in the film "Pink Floyd The Wall."

I saw the Radio KAOS tour back in '87. I liked the show better than the album, mostly cuz he mixed in old Floyd faves amongst the newer stuff.

During "Nobody Home" (from The Wall), everybody cracked up when some goof in the audience yelled out "Surprise! Surprise! Surprise!" at the exact same moment as on the record. (Anyone who's listened to The Wall a few hundred times knows what I'm talking about.)

Mike Watt and the Secondmen - The Secondmen's Last Stand. A nine song punk opera divided into three movements of three songs each about the illness that damn near killed Watt and his recovery from it (including having to relearn how to play the bass -using a pick instead of his usual fingerstyle). The three movements are based on Dante's Divine Comedy (Hell, Purgatory and Heaven are the illness, recovery, and bliss)

YES!! Good lord yes. Album of the year. I cannot recommend this album highly enough (its what I came in here to post). Have you checked their s/t debut? I was going to fly to halifax just to seem them play the pop festival, but it looks like I'm going to have to housesit now
(well, I didn't *have* to, but making $150 beats spending $500, even if spending $500 means I get to see them play. Well, probably not, I just don't have the $$$ )

But other than that, I'm looking foward to listening to some Kentucky Mountain Music when I wake up, I'm dling a 7 disc set

They have blown up!

I saw them on October 2nd in Wakefield, outside of Ottawa. I felt like a hipster.

Now, 3 weeks later? Its arcade fire this, arcade fire that. I hear the CD in places I don't want to hear it. I am such an elitist .

I haven't heard the S/T... I jumped on the bandwagon just before it really started rolling through town . But I can only imagine good things!

The Silence of Animals - The Two Minute Miracles Vol. III is in the CD player. But listening to The band played waltzing matilda - The Pogues. (I left If i should fall from grace with god cd at home, such a good cd!)

So it seems; they've not gone really really big yet, but I think both Rolling Stone and The New York Times have had articles on them recently, as a 'band to watch' kind of dealie. I too would love to keep them my own little secret. Except I can't stop telling everyone I know to check them out .. .

The S/T is great; not 'Funeral' great, but still greater than most everything else.

So . . . how was the show?!? I've read that both cd's they have out just don't compare to the live performance . . . which really makes me contemplate how long the cat I'm supposed to housesit for can make it on its own if I were to jet to Hali for a night to catch em'.

I mean, he's an old cat . . ..

Sigh.

Oh, and were they performing with Belle Orchestra, a group they're supposed to have like 3 members in common with? Anyway, let me know if you'd like to getcha hands on those S/T tracks, I'm sure we could figure something out

uh no disc is currently occupying any CD player that I own... oh except my set CD from the other night which is still in the deck of my CD turntable but that's just my own beats...

the last music I was listening to was the Beastie Boys' License To Ill and Public Enemy's Yo! Bumrush The Show! because a thoughtful friend gave me his original vinyl pressings of each for a birthday present on Wednesday. It was really moving.

Just so I can shout out some of the music I've apparently been listening to lately, I'll name the CD and cassette cases that are scattered about my computer desk right now, within eyeshot:

various artists - Bassments Of Badmen - A Hand'solo Reords Compilation
Maestro Fresh Wes - Naah... Dis Kid Can't Be From Canada!!!
Ginzu & Knowself - Capsize Conformity's Vessel
Stream - Crawl: Beyond April
Buck65/DJ Critical - Church

and uh the records on my floor that I can see from where I'm sitting...

DJ Signify feat. Buck65 & Sage Francis - Sleep No More
The Juggaknots - Clear Blue Skies EP
Miles Davis - Greatest Hits
various artists - Eargasms
Imaginary Friends - The ImF Ride b/w Even Exist (As In: "We Don't...")

...none of which have I really listened to lately.

um, last ditch attempt at approximating a response to the posted question... I've spent a lot of time lately with parts of the following tracks stuck in my head:

Freeway - Flipside
De La Soul - Breakadawn
Joe Budden & Busta Rhymes - uhh I have no idea what the song's called come to think of it

okay done.

My review of Smile:

quote:
Whether you’ve been anxiously waiting to listen to it for 37 years, or you simply want to better understand the lyrics to a certain Barenaked Ladies song, the release of Brian Wilson’s Smile is a major musical event. Like many major musical events, however, the listening simply doesn’t live up to the hype.

Never a true Beach Boys project (the rest of the band wasn’t pleased with the work when they returned from touring to join Brian in the studio), the new recordings suffer badly from Wilson’s diminishing vocal capabilities and from the passage of time. What may have seemed innovative in 1967 now sounds merely like evidence of the quantity and quality of drugs that Wilson was consuming at the time.

As a historical document, Smile is definitely interesting. But, after the first one or two listens, it’s more likely to sit on your shelf than it is to stay in your cd player.


Yes, I'm violating copyright by posting the whole review, but it's my copyright

I just bought an album by Feist, and its quite good. Beautiful smooth voice, sultry music, night music it is.

I also bought Tribe Called Quest's first album, People's... A classic, but i still think they improved with Low End Theory and Midnight Marauders.

Since I got the new cd carrying case-- the later model Mazda-- I've been building a cd library. Since I just plain refuse to buy cd's at regular prices, I haven't just gone out to get this or that.

What I have picked up though are some "greatest hits" cd's, notably by Chuck Berry, Little Richard and Jerry Lee Lewis.

These guys were out of fashion when I cut my musical taste buds, but listening now I can hear which bands I listened too got their influences from.

I was listening to a few George Thorogood riffs, and I thought to myself, "wow, that's soooo Chuck Berry..."

Other than that, I've just been picking up stuff on sale. Johnny Cash's "Folsom Prison Blues" and Steve Earl's debut album, to name but just a couple.

I'm desperately seeking the first album by "Teenage Head", along with Elton Motello's "Victim of Time". I doubt the later has been re-released on cd, so maybe the search will be futile.

New stuff? Nearly bought the new "Tea Party" cd, but the price reduction for the new uncopyable format wasn't enough to tempt me.

I need to make some compilation cd's off the net.

I've never been a fan because I have always associated her with country music which I'm really not into. But then I heard her on CBC and I had to hurry out and get the CD. K.D. Lang hymns of the 49th parallel is awesome. Her cover of Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah alone is worth the cost of the CD.

Listened to a bunch of Kid Creole and the Coconuts today: Endicott, Annie - I'm Not Your Daddy, If You Want To Be Happy (for the rest of your life), (Another girl's arousing) My Male Curiosity.

Classics, all. I have them on vinyl, 12" singles mostly. Got to get Stool Pigeon into MP3 format soon ...so much good music, so little time...

speaking of Creole...I'm listening to Dire Straits...the first album (c. 1979). We are the sultans...of swing. Creole. Yaaaaaaa...them was the days...before Rotten Ronnie, before John Lennon was murdered by a Christian fundamentalist...before the Bennett atrocities....when N.Beltov worked in Youbou on Lake Cowichan and pulled lumber like the rest of the lugs....cruisin' in my Datsun 510 and listenin' to this album on the way to graveyard shift. Oh if I knew then what I know now....I would still listen to Dire Straits! haha

The Beautiful South's new album, Golddiggas, Headnodders and Pholk Songs; bizarre covers album with songs by Blue Oyster Cult to Willie Nelson, The Ramones to S Club 7, ELO to obscure French folk songs, and even a slow version cover of You're the One that I Want from Grease...odd but compelling...

Summerteeth - Wilco.....I misplaced this disc for about three months and found it a week ago. I've been listening to it since...I love simple pleasures like that. (Fav. tracks - How to fight loneliness, Via Chicago, Summerteeth)

The Definitive Collection - Stevie Wonder....After watching the movie "Ray" I think Stevie was the next step..not because he's African-American and blind...but he starts with Ray Charles (Fingertips) and takes that sound to another level (Higher Ground).


Acoustic - John Lennon....Got it as a gift...it's John Lennon...how can you go wrong....(fav cut: Watching The Wheels, Working Class Hero).

Gaslight Tapes - Bob Dylan.....a bootleg of alternate cuts and unreleased tracks...

SMiLE - Brian Wilson - Still warming up to this....I heard so many good things about this disc that I found it a letdown after the hype..I still prefer Pet Sounds....but still good music.

Welcome to Babble, SP.

I don't know Summer Teeth, but each of the Mermaid Avenue albums with Billy Bragg are fantastic. The Gaslight Tapes! I almost got that one, but somehow that fell through. I've been listening to the bootleg Folksingers Choice. Its good.

In my CD player, I beleive it is Queen's greatest hits volume 3... the one with some of Freddie Mercury's solo stuff, and Queen collaborations with various artists after Freddie's passing...

And before that was Big Shiny Tunes 3, preceeded by Chumbawamba's Tubthumping.

Being able to bring my own music to work rules.

The Streets seems to be really polarizing...people either really love him or really hate him. I'm generally on the "love" side.

I have to say, though, I'm not as high on the new album as I was on the first one, which I thought was one of the best of 2003. The second one is growing on me somewhat, but I was a little disappointed.

Last 4 CDs in my player:

The Mars Volta - Deloused in the Comatorium
At the Drive-In - Relationship of Command
Tom Waits - Rain Dogs
The Roots - Do You Want More !!???!!

In the car I have a mix tape of punk from 1993 to 1994. Shotmaker, Sparkmarker, Hoover, Glazed Baby, Lincoln, and Watershed are some of the bands on it. These were all taped from 7" EPs or 45's I bought at the time.


The Roots and Tom Waits were bought together in a 2 for $10 deal. HUB's playing on the Roots record is just amazing (Electric bass, bass violin, juice harp, Upright Bass).

I dug out the ATDI becuase I was playing One-Armed Scissor on the bass and forgot a part of it. After digging it out, it made me want to listen to the beauty that is Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and Jim Ward's guitar playing on Invalid Litter Dep't (although lryically it is a very sad song - about the women who dissappeared while working at the maquiladaras in Ciadad Juarez - check out the video which is an attempt to raise awareness in the issue). Listening to that made we listen to more of Omar on the Mars Volta.

Which reminds me, has anyone here picked up the Omar Rodriguez-Lopez solo record, which is also the soundtrack of a movie he is to make, called "A Manual Dexterity Volume 1".

I have this thing that was recorded in friend's basement a few months ago...we'd had more than few beers and there may have been an illicit substance or two wafting in the air. The musicians had become so inadequate (usually they're pretty good) that it sounds like they're breaking things.

All of a sudden this woman (don't know her name) starts singing Sweet Jane and sounding just like Margo Timmins and the music is suddenly in tune and on time and everybody is competent again.

It's become one of fave CDs lately...you can hear things go from good to bad to worse, then just snap into something incredible.

Just had to share The Vanity Press, friends of a friend that I saw on Saturday at Zaphod's. Love them. "Farther for me" (you can hear it at the link above) is gorgeous, and their cover of Hawksley Workman's "Your beauty must be rubbing off" was wonderful. *sigh*

They were opening for The Jane Waynes, a very cool drag country group that has great songs about women's prisons, and cover Prince's "Kiss" in a surprisingly hilarious way.

Yeah, I love David Rovics too. Don't have any of his CDs, but I listen to his stuff all the time on his website. Great stuff.

Sarah Slean - Day One is her most recent album - you can listen to it on her site. Then go buy it.

And do the same for the King of Ottawa, Jim Bryson - you can hear his stuff on the site. His second album features Jim Cuddy, he'll be touring with Kathleen Edwards shortly. And the front page of his site has a really cute cat!

Y'know what's great listening when you're working, and don't want to be distracted by lyrics, but you want something upbeat and funky?

In my CD changer:

  • "Introducing Paul Bley, with Charles Mingus & Max Roach" (1953)
  • Charlie Haden's Liberation Music Orchestra "The Ballad of the Fallen" (1982)
  • Primus "Pork Soda" (1993)
  • Nomeansno "Peoples Choice" (2004) --> an OK compilation, but I'd definitely recommend an album like "Wrong" over this if NMN is your cup of tea.
  • Madlib "Shades of Blue" (2003)
  • Burning Spear "Marcus Garvey"(1975)

Yes! I haven't seen those irreverent mofos in ages... another fine product from the "Sea of Shit" (aka Victoria).

My Dad was once arranging an order of t-shirts to be made for his office and the print-shop just happened to be finishing off a job for the DayGlo's, printing something like this:

The manager at the shop was bending over backyards trying to apologize to my Dad! He himself found it rather funny (the t-shirt, not the ass-kissing).

Feed USA Fetus is a brilliant album. What with Ronald McRaygun and those classical hits!

Jerry Jeff Walker - Viva Luckenbach!
Jimmy Buffet - Fruitcakes
The Best of EL&P
Satanic Slaughter - Satanic Slaughter

In a sad twist of fate, my John Prine CD isn't playing today ;_; That is the only reason Satanic Slaughter is in my CD player right now.

There was a mention of Jerry Jeff Walker - I have his early folk music albums before he went to country. Saw JJW at Le Hibou a few times as well, in Ottawa, on Sussex Drive, in the 1960's. He had a great voice back then, perfect with acoustic guitar.

Great album, but it'll always remind me of the invasion of Iraq, which took place right around the time it was released.

I prefer his country stuff, frankly. It is not sullen emotional like Johnny Cash, but it has a nice light sound to it, with pleny of humor. Me and my dad want to go down to Austin, Texas to see him perform. And maybe hit the Keys and see the Jimmy Buffet perform.

Edit:: The next album on my playlist is KMFDM's WWIII and Nihil. KMFDM is pure rock and roll.

  • Brilliant album. Jazz has had so many atrocities foisted upon it in an attempt to 'modernize' the music (the addition of beats and whatnot), so it was nice to see it done with tastefulness, class, and a nice dose of Madlib's trademark eccentricity. 'Verve Remixed' series, take notes.

    I'm currently spinning 'This Is Hardcore' by Pulp. The fact that a bookish, scrawny wiseass like Jarvis Cocker is a pop star of renown across the pond never ceases to make me grin.

    Surfin' USA. I saw the Beach Boys do most of this album (and "Little Deuce Coupe") in Ottawa in the 1960's. I absolutely love these early BB albums. Now listening to them sing "Barbara Ann":

    Went to a dance, lookin’ for romance
    Saw barbara ann, so I thought I’d take a chance
    With barbara ann, barbara ann
    Take my hand
    You got me rockin’ and a-rollin’

    Threads like these are addictive.

    1. TV on the Radio - "Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babes" ("Dreams" is such a freakin' haunting track)
    2. Dr. Ring-Ding & the Senior Allstars - "Dandimite!"
    3. The Clash - "Vanilla Tapes"
    4. Mission of Burma - "Vs."
    5. Stars - "Set Yourself on Fire"

    I forgot how good Dr. Ring-Ding is. It's like he's immune from the cheesiness that goes with a lot of ska/reggae music that's played by white people (and, he's not only white, but he's a white German laying down reggae and dancehall beats -- and he does it REALLY well).

    I should probably listen to Stars more around Valentine's Day to comfort the pitter patter of my lonely heart.

    At one time I had about 400 LP's, mostly rock, but also folk and blues. Now I have 100+ folk LP's, 200 cassettes (mostly rock), about 40 CD's.
    I need a new turntable, may order the one in the SEARS online catalogue.

    My new Mazda B3000 came with just a CD player; wonder how much of a hassle it'll be to add a cassette player?

    They are my favourite band, but the 'Shwa rarely has their CDs in. I've only gots three albums by them, but I best you with the ultimate power metal CD collector trumpcard. The pre-release Demons & Wizards s/t with popup grim reaper. That is totally worth it.

    Right now I'm chilling to My Dying Bride and some Hooflug and the Rock Collector.

    They're still called albums! Albums are defined as a collection of recordings - it doesn't matter what the medium is. You can have albums on cassette tape, vinyl, CD, or as a set of mp3s, and they all equally deserve the title "album".

    If you want to be really anal about the original definition about an album, LPs are not albums either. An album, originally, was a collection of 78s tucked into a book. If we want to call LPs albums, then CDs are albums as well.

    Right now I'm listening to an LP actually- Kate and Anna McGarrigle, s/t.

    This thread is getting pretty long...

I have never listened to my dying bride I will check it out. I am only missing Toykyo Tales from BG I have all their other regular albums and the double live one. A night at the Opera was OK. I like NIME a lot more. Too bad Much Music doesn't play any good music anymore except Fromage when Ed the Sock rips these crappy artists apart.

    A friend lent me Tom Waits' Real Gone, and its even better than i had imagined. So i'm listening to that right now, though I also keep playing The Messenger, the exquisite opening track to Daniel Lanois' For the Beauty of Winona.

    and just because:

    quote:
    well, the circus left without me / and there's no work here for clowns / and i'm hiding in los muertos / cause hector's back in town / and a hundred bloody mary's / and i'll be on my way / meet me here at midnight for a vampire matinee / i'm staring at the ceiling while it rains to beat the band / and my head is full of cactus / and my mouth is full of sand / and all my companeros abondoned me today / meet me here at midnight for a vampire matinee / and these days days of hanging from the ceiling in the dark / i know the hours are pounding nails in your heart / but here we'll drink together / and curse the light of day / meet me here at midnight for a vampire matinee / well the streets are full of roosters / and there's old bones in the creek / and your secrets grow like violets / blooming in your sleep / but i'll be gone by sunrise / or there'll be hell to pay / meet me here at midnight for a vampire matinee

    Rhume's Jeu de puissance on Kelp records. The rocker "Caline de Bine" is not to be missed. The chorus of "Vous êtes une province (nous sommes une nation)" is reminiscent of too many threads on Québec nationalism that I have contributed to here on Babble. I bought this for the cover art, and ended up enjoying the music. Rhume's alter-ego has just put out a country album under the name Greenfield Main.

    For All Tid and Stormblast are their two best albums. Sticking to the old "purist" black metal definition that is. I'd suggest some other bands, but the problem with black metal...Too many damned racists. The whole "KILL GOD ARRRRRRRRRR!" is hilarious, but the racism...Oy.

    I'm listening to Smashing Pumpkin's Siamese Dreams and Skinny Puppy's Last Rights. Don't ask about the last one, I enjoy industrial. STFU n00bz.

    I'm currently going through an acute case of interpol-itis (I'm sorry, I just like horribly lame jokes), in which one can't get quite enough Interpol....Stupidity aside also spinning:
    Metric - Old World Underground, Where Are You Now?
    Elbow - Asleep In The Back
    Broken Social Scene - Beehives
    Stars - me and everyone else apparently
    But Interpol's Antics is getting all the attention as of late...

    Ani DiFranco - Living in Clip (her live double CD)

    I like this one much better than her studio recordings, which have always seemed a bit stiff to me. It's in a live context she really shines.

    Frances The Mute - The Mars Volta. I got the complete CD in the mail on Tuesday and it is just blowing my mind. I guess the best way to describe it is "free rock". I feel the same way listening to it as I do listening to Ornette Coleman's early Atlantic recordings.
