Blade Runner (Ending) - Vangelis

I've listened this song on radio few minutes ago.
It's wonderful.

I've been listening to Pearl Jam a lot of late. Not sure what that means.

Just some albums I've been listening to lately;

Neil Young - Harvest

Can't get enough of this. Great album. Any recommendations on what Neil Young album I should get next?


Animal Collective - Merriweather Post Pavilion
user posted image

AC's newest album. I really enjoyed Feels and Strawberry Jam and I'm loving this as well. I wouldn't call it their best though, unlike most people have been saying. I feel it's missing the playfulness and experimental nature of their other albums. Still a great album though.


Neutral Milk Hotel - In The Aeroplane Over The Sea
user posted image

I remember first hearing this thinking it was a load of hipster crap. I then dug it back out of my library and have loved it ever since. It's probably been my most played album of the past three months.


OM - Conference Of The Birds

Epic. At Giza makes me want to dance.

I've got Akon playing in my ear at the moment.

'Against The Grain' to be precise off his 'Freedom' Album. The album gets better and better the more I listen to it. Slowly becoming easily one of my top 5 albums for the time being. The majority of the songs are hella catchy.

more specifically the 'Against The Grain' Chorus:

QUOTE
[They always say don't love a ho]

But i just went against the grain
It was a feelin i can't explain
And it felt like harmony
Singin in my face like
diddy-duhdee doo-dah-day


Love it.

I've been listening to AOTP - The Torture Papers (the album) on repeat for the past month or so, it gets better every time I hear it. Though admittedly, Wrath of Gods and The Torture Papers are pretty weak tracks, otherwise the album borders on perfect, easily one of the best hardcore hip-hop albums ever made.

Sex On Fire seems to be the quintessential Kings of Leon song, especially for girls between the ages of 14 and 40.

Right now, I can't really stop myself from listening to Gaslight Anthem every day all day.

Been getting into Paramore and Nine Inch Nails a lot recently.

For completely different reasons, mind you.

Nine Inch Nails I've always been a massive fan of, but Paramore I could never get into. Probably because they've hit the popularity whore boom thing here in the UK and now you can't go anywhere without a floppy haired teenager claiming to relate to the songs so much they want to cry. Do you know if their earlier material is better than their newer Jay?

Speaking of female lead bands, I caught wind of Dave Grohl drumming on the recent album Four On The Floor by Juliette And The Licks. It's bloody fantastic, and it's right up my street; complete balls-out rock, as much as I hate to use the word "rock" as a generalization.

Pretty much the same, although it is debatable if they've been around long enough to have distinct 'older' and 'newer' stuff.

I saw Juliette and the Licks open for Unwritten Law before. By the end of the set she was down to her bra and panties, monies worth.

I thought as much, just hoped I could enjoy "old" Paramore and enjoy it, rather than listen to the newer material and be constantly reminded by sleazy whores I used to go to college with that used to quote the songs all the damn time.

I'd pay to see that, hope she makes festival appearances this year.

Yes, please elaborate. You all know the rules.

As for me (since my last post);


Neil Young - On the Beach
user posted image

I seriously love this man. My second album of his and I loved it from first listen. I wouldn't rate it as highly as 'Harvest' at the moment, but still a near flawless album.


Elliott Smith - Either/Or
user posted image

My second album of Elliott Smith's as well, 'From a Basement On the Hill' being the first. Took a while to get into but now I love it, quite possibly more than FaBOtH. I can really relate this album and his music in general to the sh*t that's going on in my life at the moment. I'm not sure whether it's helping me or just making me more depressed.


Sólstafir - Köld
user posted image

Really great album. Trows mentioned this in my topic so I decided to grab it. One of 09's best so far.


Mono - Hymn to the Immortal Wind
user posted image

Trows delivers again. One of the best post-rock albums I've heard in a long time.

I've been listening to a lot of Pink Floyd lately. They've quickly grown into one of my favorite bands. Their work is just pure genius.

I've also been listening to a lot of Billy Joel, another genius songwriter. And I've started listening to Green Day again after a long absence from them on any of my playlists, just to get hyped up for their upcoming album.

Plus Stone Temple Pilots and XTC have been making frequent appearances on my iPod as well.

@Ya Mum: Elliott Smith is awesome. You should check out the band he was in, Heatmiser, particularly the song Cruel Reminder. Awesome stuff.

You might want to contribute a bit more to your post. Just naming what you're listening to at this very moment and waltzing off to another topic doesn't cut it anymore. This isn't the Now Playing Thread. This is for discussions about why you're listening to certain bands, songs, genres, etc. We're trying to promote posts that are actually worthy.

Now was that so hard? wink.gif


I've been hypnotized into listening to Delbert McClinton ever since my teacher has been, well, teaching me about improvisation. His 1980's southern rock is, um, interesting. Bluesy stuff has really helped me understand. Still shuffling around with Rust in Peace, as well.

As of late, I've been listening to Joan Jett & The Blackhearts - Do You Wanna Touch Me. I first heard it in a skateboarding video (Chris Cole's part in Zero: New Blood to be precise), and loved it. Definitely something for anybody to listen to.

In the last half hour I've just been listening to some of Ozzy Osbourne's solo stuff. I had the songs in my iTunes library for a while but have never really given them a good listen. "Fire In the Sky" has quickly become one of my favorite Ozzy songs now.

Other than that, I've gotten into some songs from Avantasia and Megadeth. I just finished reading "Of Mice and Men" in my English class and I came across Megadeth's song of the same title by mistake, and liked it. I've been listening to songs from Megadeth's "The System Has Failed" and a few from Avantasia.

I've also been listening to old Iron Maiden albums (w/Paul Di'anno). Good stuff. icon14.gif
