Quoted from rcbrown316:

I'm sure most of you have never heard of this guy but if you like good music you owe it to yourself to list to this recording at least three times:

He's dead now which is a huge shame. This album was put together post-mortem. You can find all the songs on youtube.

Everyone here who is even a casual fan of prog/eclectic rock should check this out, and I agree completely with the idea of giving it at least three listens before making up your mind. It's the kind of album which richly rewards active rather than passive listening (give it your undivided attention when listening, works great with headphones), almost in the same way a good Classical piece can grow on the listener.

I strongly recommend the special edition CD set: http://www.popplusone.com/kg_sott_special_ed.html
I know $45 is a lot to spend on a single album (though a hell of a lot less than a pinball machine!), but if you are a music collector (especially one with eclectic tastes) this really should be in your library.

He was one of the founders of the "Tuesday Night Music Club" (a group of friends who met on Tuesdays to jam/write) and his musical input is the main reason Sheryl Crow had so much success with the album. Unfortunately she completely screwed him over once her career started to take off, and he was dead a few years later.

How about a little Black Sunday by Cypress Hill?

Agreed.

The shift away from the album to producing Singles is unfortunate. you can blame many factors (high compression files, music sharing, overall direction of the industry) but the artists focusing on crafting an album has declined. Not only do you loose the creative process of structuring a group of work or creating a story with music but the cover art and liner notes are almost non existent. Granted there are a few left that still strive for an album. Was nice to see the Mars Volta use Storm on their first few album covers.

When I started discovering music I would scour through my fathers classic rock albums and while listening to the record would look through the album artwork package. Sadly this emmersive experience is not what it was.

But I digress lementing on nostalgia. Below are the albums I love to listen through. I think you can tell when both me and my father grew up. And I think most of these have been mentioned

Radiohead: ok computer
Alice in chains: jar of flies, Alice in chains, dirt, black gives way to blue
Pearl jam: Vs., ten
Smashing pumpkins: Siamese Dream
Tool: aenima
U2: Joshua tree (maybe best into ever)

Beatles: Abby road, revolver
Led Zeppelin: houses of the holy
Yes: close to the edge
Pink Floyd: animals, dark side

Chill music:
Bucket head: colma
Mike Oldfield: songs of distant earth

Do you like Phil Collins? I've been a big Genesis fan ever since the release of their 1980 album, Duke. Before that, I really didn't understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual. It was on Duke where Phil Collins' presence became more apparent. I think Invisible Touch was the group's undisputed masterpiece. It's an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums.

I love "Jesus he knows me" for some reason.

Quoted from jardine:

Thanks for the bump guys...gotta say after first starting this thread and being told to go listen to Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon.....it has turned into one of my all time favourites.
Not sick of it yet and still on high rotation in my car!

So cool to see that people are STILL discovering this album, one of the greats for sure. It also happens to be one of the best-recorded Rock albums as well.

Now go listen to "Wish You Were Here", you'll almost certainly enjoy it too. I think I might actually prefer it to DSOM.

Done.

Actually thinking of going back over this thread and grabbing all the albums that have been given the most thumbs up in here...hehe. Might be a good way to enlighten my musical taste.

well stated. sheryl crow is not sheryl crow without KG. Listen to some of his stuff then go listen to all I wanna do and you will see how much KG is in there. Here's a really cool cover of kashmir. Listen to the whole thing. Give him a chance and you will get hooked like I did. Dude was brilliant:

Basement bump!

One of my favorite new finds of the last few years - Blood Ceremony
If you're into anything 70's rock, stoner, Jethro Tullish, you can't not like this band. Love their latest record, caught myself listening to it twice in a row at work last week.

#436 2 years ago

I can't tell if it's perfect or not I have a hard time making it through a death metal album at my old age. I had a hankerin' for some Cannibal Corpse last week, I only made it like 6 songs into The Bleeding.

#437 2 years ago

Oops. Not a "PERFECT" album contender. Just what I'm jammin right now. Cattle Decap will cut yer throat!

Listening to this band lately, great tunes on their first self titled album. This song will be on the next album released soon. Just Classic ROCK
