This is just like the "Last movie you have seen" topic by papanesta. A few ground rules before we start things off, no number ratings, star ratings or any kind of rating. Just give a description of the last album you listened to, whether or not you liked it, and so on and so forth.

I'll start things off.
Outkast-ATLiens (1996)

user posted image


This album, in my opinion, is OutKast's best work to date. It is their magnum opus if you will. Some would beg to differ and say that their third effort, Aquemini, actually takes that title. I think lyrically this album is better and it shows the beginning divisions between Big Boi and Andre's subject matter and styles (fashion and flow-wise).

The title, album cover, and some of the songs titles seem as if they were a brain-child of Andre 3000, in which the idea was to be a concept album. Such is not the case. The songs with titles such as ATLiens, Millennium, and E.T. show Andre being the better of the as far as flow and lyrics due to the fact that they deal with his smoked-out perspectives and visions of space and Earth below. Yet this is not to say that Big Boi doesn't deliver. Big Boi shines on ATLiens alongside Andre in a battle of friendly lyrical showmanship, but Big Boi delivers harder, better rhymes when put on songs that deal with drugs, hoes, and pimps as a way to bring the listening audience back down to Earth from the trip Andre just took them on.

In my opinion, OutKast's ATLiens is basically taking a space-trip in a '77 Seville while smoking the stickiest of greens with Andre 3000 and Big Boi at your side and a gaggle of "space hoes" for lack of a better word. If you are a Hip-Hop fan, this definitely should be in your collection. If not, it's worth a definite listen.

Same album. Although most of the songs in that track aren't really that good for my taste, there are some good ones such as Beautiful, Deja-Vu, Stay Wide Awake and Underground.

"21st Century Breakdown" by Green Day.

Their latest outing seems to be their best work yet. I wasn't a very big fan of their last album, American Idiot, and even though this follows a similar formula, it's much, much, much better in terms of lyrics, music, and overall production. It's spoken to me in ways that no other album has been able to. Definitely a plethora of standout tracks on this album, as opposed to the tracks on American Idiot. If you've heard "Know Your Enemy" on the radio, don't be fooled; it's the only redundant song on the album.

All in all, their best album yet in my opinion. And I never thought they'd be able to top Insomniac.

Kylesa - Static Tensions

This album is easily one of my picks for album of the year already. It is just......holy sh*t. This band does a great job at taking stoner metal and then adds their on unique sound to it. I might have to write a whole review on this later but right now I can't even really describe how awesome this album is to my ears.

Dope album. Great beats and lyrics, and the skits are hilarious. Thought I'd also note that this was the beginning of MF DOOM's career.

Recommended to all hip-hop fans.

For you people who don't know Crashdïet, they're a swedish Glam/Hair metal band (kinda like Crüe and Faster Pussycat mixed toegether). These guys are f*ckin bad ass!

A DAY TO REMEMBER- Homesick

Never gets old for me.

EDIT: I would say recomend this album to anyone with interest in pop-punk or hardcore as this band mixes the both together very well.

This is also the newest off there albums.

Some good solid electro/french house going on here. I love anything from Ed Banger. Seb is in the same vein as Daft Punk and Kavinsky. Love this stuff.

Air's Pocket Symphony


An amazing piece of work, I'm really into my ambient music but this is just lively enough so you don't drift off to sleep when you're listening to it. I'm a big fan of Air as it is, and I'm going so far as to say this is their best for me, it ticks all the right boxes. Moon Safari was good but this delivers so much more.

I may have to check out Kylesa too...

I've been getting into the French House/Electro scene what with Justice, Ed Banger Records being at the vanguard of it all. I find it to be like the re-birth of Electro, breathing new air into what started with Kraftwerk and extended into America with Afrika Bambaataa. Good stuff, indeed.

You heard of Danger? He's like Kavinsky only his stuff has a darker feel to it.

Listening to 09/16 2007 now.

His stuff is fair hard to track down though - unless of course, y'knooooooow turn.gif

I like my selection best, <G> and Whoa... Guess what!??
It's on an ACTUAL LP 12inch record! Pete Way formed WAYSTED as I mention in a thread about the UFO bottom end player...made earlier... after he had started up FASTWAY with Fast Eddie Clark of ex-MOTORHEAD.

Pete comments that UFOs albums at the time didn't do as well as WAYSTED's two more well known recordings; VICES and Save Your Prayers, 1986
Vices is 1984. I was really digging on both bands in the 1980s when these LPs first came out, my copy of the albums have stood the test of time. Serious about rock? No, your not, until you get these.

Dave Bixby - Ode to Quetzalcoatl

One of the saddest albums I've ever heard. Original copies of this extremely rare LP have sold on ebay for over $1000 and now I know why.

Fans of Nick Drake should definitely check this out. That's if you can find it. PM me if you're having trouble. wink.gif

Madlib-Blunted in the Bomb Shelter


One of Madlib's rare gems. The only time I heard about this album was at a wikipedia site when I first looked up Madlib about three or four years ago. This album was listed in his discography. Interested to see what it was, I learned that it was a large collection of remixes and dub re-workings of Dub and Reggae music from Jamaica's famous (Barrington Levy, King Tubby) to some of the more obscure (The Upsetters, U-Brown) artists.

The album was done in Madlib's legendary but now long-gone basement studio known as the "Bomb Shelter" because the Oxnard, California basement was built as a bomb shelter in the 1960s at the height of the Cuban Missile Crisis.

This album is a great listen. The album basically sounds like Madlib just picked up a quarter pound of reefer, headed down to the Bomb Shelter, rolled up a fat one, smoked, and then started doing all of his work thus spawned the title and the album. With sounds from old Atari games, someone inhaling a substance one imagine as marijuana, lots of echo and reverb, this is a Dub album built almost solely for fellow weed smokers. Yet even if you're not and you appreciate Dub music, this is still something you have to check out.

I took Scarface's advice and listened to that Kylesa album. Glad I did, f*cking blew my tits off. I've listened to it twice now and it's fast becoming my favourite, so thanks for that one. icon14.gif

Speaking of recent albums I listened to, here's one; Buckethead's "In Search Of The", Volume 2.

user posted image


For those unfamiliar with ISOT, I'll explain. Basically, ISOT is a collection of a total of 13 albums released together as a box-set. Each volume is around 45-50 minutes in duration with a variety of track lengths and number of tracks. The last part, volume 13 consists of one long unbroken 45 minute song. I most recently listened to volume 2 which is by far my favourite. It's an ambient/funk/jazz/electronic/metal/avant-guarde fusion, I've never heard anything like it before. Choice track is Blue Marbles Moon, which I've posted here if anyone's remotely curious.

Read Music/Speak Spanish by Desaparecidos.


A very different, heavier sound from Conor Oberst, nothing like Bright Eyes. Still keeps the great lyricism but in a vastly different form.
Pity they were so under-appreciated and short-lived. Definitely a quality album for something recorded in the space of a week. My favourite track would be Manana, it's been stuck in my head all week.

Neil Young - Journey Through the Past

user posted image

Consists of mostly live tracks but is supposed to be the soundtrack to Neil Young's own directed movie, Journey Through the Past. Not many have seen the film since he never properly released it, but it will be one of the discs in his Archives Vol. 1 box set, which is set for release next week. Can't wait to watch it.

The album itself is probably something only die hard fans of Neil Young's should check out. The quality is pretty bad since it was only ever released on vinyl and the mp3's that are floating around the internet all have pretty bad crackles and pops.

An all round good listen though, I'm a die hard Neil Young fan so there's not much I don't like.
