The topic title basically says it. But unlike the what are you listening to topic, I (and I'm sure everyone else) would like to hear what you think of that album. Or maybe what you thought the album was going to be like. Was it better than expected? Was it under those expectations? How much was it? Where did you get it from? Did you plan on buying it? Was it an impulse buy? Was it an Album that you have been holding out on getting? Is it a classic, that you never got the chance to get? Is it vinyl, 8-track, Cassette, CD, or is it from your favorite (legal) online music provider? Furthermore if you want throw down a track list or an album cover.

Ok I'll start it off. Yesterday I picked up a couple CDs I've been wanting to get, but never really committed to buying. Red Hot Chili Peppers, Blood Sugar Sex Magik and Mother's Milk. I've heard most of Blood Sugar Sex Magik when I was 5 or 6 years old. My big brother and his friends were listening to it, they said I couldn't because of the parental advisory, but I did anyway. Greeting Song and Naked in the Rain are a couple of my favorite songs. But there are a ton of classic Chili Peppers songs on this album; suck my kiss and give it away, to name a couple.

Blood Sugar Sex Magik

  1. Power of Equality
  2. If You Have to Ask
  3. Breaking the Girl
  4. Funky Monks
  5. Suck My Kiss
  6. I Could Have Lied
  7. Mellowship Slinky in B Minor
  8. the Righteous and the Wicked
  9. Give it Away
  10. Blood Sugar Sex Magik
  11. Under The Bridge
  12. Naked in the Rain
  13. Apache Rose Peacock
  14. the Greeting Song
  15. My Lovely Man
  16. Sir Psycho Sexy
  17. They're Red Hot

It's classic, hands down. It's weird though. The Chili Peppers sound a lot different now a days. They're still good, maybe better, but this album is their definitive album.

The last album that I "bought"? That could be hard. The last album I "acquired" was Want Some? by Roxy Blue.

That was their only album before the band capsized. But it was great.




Actually, now that I think about it, the last album I legitimately bought was Sonic Firestorm, by Dragonforce.

Good stuff. icon14.gif

Ok, it doesn't have to be an album you bought. Lets just say as you did, the last album acquired.

Last album I picked up was Art Brut, Bang Bang Rock and Roll. I've been meaning to give their stuff a listen for the last year or so, I've only just got round to it.

Solid album. Seemed kinda gimmicky with Eddie Argos' vocals at first but its grown on me a lot. Amusing lyrics; Satyrical, Ironic, all in all pretty catchy.

I recently got this too. It's awesome. It's nice to see that Maiden still rocks after all these years when other bands (*cough*Metallica*cough*) have completly fallen off.

This isn't the LAST album i've bought, but seeing as i've never actually bought an album before i'll post up my FIRST one... (Being released Oct17th)

The Tragically Hip: World Container

1. Yer Not The Ocean
2. The Lonely End Of The Rink
3. In View
4. Fly
5. Luv (sic)
6. The Kids Don't Get It
7. Pretend
8. Last Night I Dreamed You Didn't Love Me
9. The Drop-Off
10. Family Band
11. World Container

Album is now streaming in its entirety @ http://www.thehip.com if you're interested, or you can check out this Video Montage that aired on "Hockey Night In Canada" the other night.

They have a different sound than what most people are used to, but they've been together since '83 and have one of the most loyal fanbases going...

They encourage the fans to record their live shows and share them so they have a massive amount of live stuff available on their unnoficial torrent site. They asked if we could hold off on posting this summers stuff until the album was released and everyone has done so even though there are a massive amount of shows recorded and ready to be downloaded and sent out on DVD when they give the go ahead.

I'm as excited for that as I am for the release of the album because their live stuff is amazing.

Guided by Voices - Bee Thousand

Pretty much one of the best indie rock albums ever released, I've had/loved Alien Lanes for awhile and I'm just now discovering that this one is just as solid.

Pink Floyd - Atom Heart Mother

Tracks:
1. Atom Heart Mother
2. If
3. Summer '68
4. Fat Old Sun
5. Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast

Definitley one of my favorite Floyd albums. The titular first track of the album is a twenty minute long rager that is is a classic tune for the band, and the underrated Summer '68 is among my favorite pre-Dark Side of the Moon Floyd songs.

Last two I bought, (I never buy just one tounge.gif ) were Skinny Puppy's Singles Collect and Hurt - Vol. 1

The Skinny Puppy album was exactly how I new it was going to be, Skinny Puppy sexyness.
The Hurt album on the other hand was an impulsive grab, was going for 8 bucks and didn't sound too bad for the few seconds I listened to at the kisosk thingy. So I grabbed it, and it turned out to be one of my favorites for the year. THe singer has a great voice smile.gif I can't wait for there next album now.

3. Trial by the Archon
4. Wizard's Crown
5. Run for the Night
6. The Martyr

Pretty damn awesome debut. Back when BG was doing the thrash stuff. "Gandalf's Rebirth" is a sick instrumental.


Oh and not to mention the album art is pretty badass as well.

Music about Lord of the Rings. I love it.

I will now finish my post from before and talk about the other Chili Peppers CD I bought last week. The remastered Mother's Milk with bonus tracks.

Classic as well. Chili Peppers at their best. 'Knock Me Down', seems to me to be the beginning of what they are today. More melodic. But the funk is well present with songs like 'Subway to Venus' and 'Stone Cold Bush'. 'Pretty Little Ditty' is slightly hard to listen to for the fact that the band crazytown (terrible "band") sampled the guitar riff for their one hit (terrible "song"). The bonus tracks are great, featuring a couple more songs along the lines of the hendrix cover of 'fire', with live versions of covers 'Castles Made of Sand' and 'Crosstown Traffic' (live). Along with alternate versions of 'Knock Me Down' and 'Sexy Mexican Maid'. My favorite song so far has to be 'Magic Johnson'. It really reminds me of living in the LA area during the reign of the 80's Lakers.

There (IMO) seems to be a bit of a metal influence there, too. In songs such as "Stone Cold Bush," "Nobody Wierd Like Me," "Higher Ground," and "Good Time Boys." A lot harder than any other album they've made.

I gotta say that "Punk Rock Classic" is the only song I don't like on that album. It just sounds terrible.

Frusciante definately had a funk-metal thing going on on Mother's Milk, which I believe was against his wishes to a degree. It was more their producer's idea. On some tracks there's up to 5 guitars overdubbed, which is pretty ridiculous. Frusciante won't play anything off the album anymore because he doesn't like it for that reason. He doesn't overdub much anymore either, mainly cause of how overdone it was on MM.

That said, it's right up there as one of my favourite Chili Peppers albums. And Pretty Little Ditty is an AWESOME song, once you make yourself forget anyone ever used the riff in a sh*tty song.

Yeah, it's definitly much harder than they usually play. Frusciante is definitly my favorite guitarist around. Even if they layered the guitar. I love the 'The Song That Made Us What We Are Today' for the guitar.
