Just thought it'd be interesting to see what music the people here are listening to at any given time they feel like replying.

I'll start things out by saying that I am enjoying the recently-released Velvet Revolver CD, which stars the singer of Stone Temple Pilots (Scott Weiland) with ex- everybody but Axl Rose members of Guns'n'Roses. Nice blend. Makes me feel nostalgic for Appetite for Destruction.

So what are you listening to now? view post

Haha, yep, that's the one I've been listening to in my car for the past week. Really like it. Other than that I've been listening to the old Nirvana Unplugged album. view post


Now listening to... posted 06 July 2004 in Off-Topic DiscussionNow listening to... by Aldarion, Sorcerer-of-Rank

Yep, Nirvana is definitely good to listen to. Before this, I've been listening to bootleg live performances by Jimmy Page (with Paul Rodgers, 1988) and Page/Plant (Nashville, 1998 - a concert I went to, no less!) and have been in hard rock heaven. I love bootlegs. view post

I'm listening to Flogging Molly's Swagger album (with The Likes of You Again playing at the moment) with the Children Of Dune soundtrack queued up for later. I can't wait till August when Flogging Molly's scheduled to come through Toronto. view post

Been going through a selection of my old albums recently including Sisters of mercy, Fields of the Nephilim, Bauhaus etc. Forgot how good they were (and yes I did buy them first time round. lol) view post

I'm a jazz nut, with everything else (except country, disgusting stuff) mixed in. Diana Krall and Louise Rose lately, a little Green Day, R. Kelly, Outkast, and some Mozart Masses. view post


Now listening to... posted 07 July 2004 in Off-Topic DiscussionNow listening to... by Aldarion, Sorcerer-of-Rank

Outkast coupled with Mozart? Very eclectic!

As for country...you should try living in the Greater Nashville Metropolitan Area. If you think country's bad enough from a distance, being around its epicenter is a lot worse.

That being said, there's actually a few "Country" artists that transcend the crappy field and are worth listening to: Johnny Cash, err...Johnny Cash...and uh, Johnny Cash! <!-- s;) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- s;) --> view post

Aldarion, I think perhaps you forgot Jonny Cash. <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->

Seriously though also been listening to some other stuff recently, as Ive been reading a few fantasy novels Ive had stuff by Clannad, Caroline Lavelle playing and have to say it enhanced the reading. Also quite like Sonne by Ramstein. view post


Now listening to... posted 07 July 2004 in Off-Topic DiscussionNow listening to... by Sovin Nai, Site Administrator

I got a new cd the other day called Night Silence Desert, by two Iranians. It's traditional middle eastern, and makes great fantasy background. I also like (for background) Loreena McKennit(sp), Adiemus, and the LOTR soundtrack. view post

Last thing I listened to was Symphony No. 1: The Lord of the Rings by Johan de Meij - really great band music, though my CD is the later orchestral arrangement. view post

How can a guy that goes by the screenname Dylanfanatic for get his namesake when pointing out good country artists? <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: --> view post

Because I don't classify Dylan as being strictly any genre? <!-- s;) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- s;) -->

I will admit he has made some great songs that are of the Country persuasion (Lay Lady Lay being just one example, all of Nashville Skyline being another, not to mention parts of John Wesley Harding and Time Out of Mind), but he deserves his own genre, yes? <!-- s:P --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" title="Razz" /><!-- s:P -->

That being said, I have a nice 2002 bootleg of Dylan playing Brown Sugar. Weird, yet good. view post

Dave Matthew's Band Live in Central Park Concert album.

Ok I admit Dylan isn't strictly country. Although im not sure he has a own genre. I would probably say he has his roots in country but has experimented with many different genres... but maybe thats the same thing now that I typed it out <!-- s:? --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_confused.gif" alt=":?" title="Confused" /><!-- s:? -->

EDIT: Oh and the brown sugar cover sounds interesting (although it doesnt suprise me ha has done one). Whats the bootleg called, and is the sound any good? Normaly I'm not that interested in bootlegs due to the crapy quality of the recordings. view post

I think dylan is rooted in folk with country influences personally. I am big fan.

I just got a life size standup of Diana Krall from barnes and noble. Did you know that all you have to do to get one is ask them to hold it for you when they take it down and they will? Anyway, one more unnecessary item in my room. view post

Been listening to the Killers and Franz Ferdinand. Heard their singles on the radio and decided to get the cds. I believe both are British bands. view post

How are those? I have been considering them myself.

I'm currently listening to the soundtrack from the movie: Queen of the damned. It is so great.

When I'm finished listening to that I'll listen to Sisters of Mercy. view post

I'm listening to Hide's Hide Your Face album, and seeing Ministry mentioned earlier in the thread, I can't help but gape at the blatant similarity between 'Drink Or Die' and 'Jesus Built My Hotrod'.

Hide either ripped off the music for D.O.D. from them or I'm hearing things. The lyrics are different, sure, not to mention in Japanese, but the music is way too close for it to be merely coincidence. I wonder if he ever admitted to D.O.D. being Ministry inspired or some such, or whether it just went unnoticed. view post


Now listening to... posted 13 July 2004 in Off-Topic DiscussionNow listening to... by Loof, Peralogue

Cool I will have to check out Hide, never heard of them before. But if they are an industrial band its pretty likely that Ministry is a big influance. view post


Now listening to... posted 13 July 2004 in Off-Topic DiscussionNow listening to... by legatus, Auditor

There's a lot of range to Hide's music from song to song, but the vast majority of his stuff really doesn't strike me as particularly industrial. Some of it certainly is (Doubt, Pose and Bacteria come to mind), but his style is really eclectic, and I'd only clearly label a small percentage of his stuff as industrial.

In the case of D.O.D., the tone of the song is different than Jesus Built My Hotrod, as though the core of the song was sanitized to churn out a faster, cleaner bastard child--a red-headed one at that. I still like it regardless, but it loses much of the industrial flair as a result.

As another word of warning, Hide has a somewhat typical, Japanese rocker voice: a little on the effeminate side, and potentially grating. Also, I have to be in the mood to listen to Hide or a lot of his stuff strikes me as altogether too upbeat.

Addendum: Much like a large portion of the rest of Japan's mainstream music scene of yore, Hide doesn't entirely escape the taint of the dreaded bubblegum pop syndrome either. In spite of being a fan, I certainly like to badmouth his music a lot, huh? <!-- s:P --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" title="Razz" /><!-- s:P --> view post

Hehe thanks for the info, wasnt planning on going out and buying it without listening to it first. If i do find it i will tell you what I think.

And just to stay on topic right now I'm listening to Guns n' Roses Apetite for Destruction, in my opinion probably one of the best rock albums ever made. <!-- s8) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_cool.gif" alt="8)" title="Cool" /><!-- s8) --> view post

Amen to that G'n'R statement. view post


Now listening to... posted 13 July 2004 in Off-Topic DiscussionNow listening to... by LooseCannon, Peralogue

@Neil - Both are pretty good although I haven't listened to them a lot yet. Keep forgetting to bring the cds with me in the car. Anyway I'd say I am leaning a little more towards the Killers as the better. But FF has a couple of good singles on it and also sound a lot more British than the Killers. view post
