    Tom was right. Tres Hombres is the best ZZ Top. If they had put Legs on it, then it'd be a truly perfect album.

    Prog is my biggest classic rock weak spot. With a few exceptions, I've never been able to do much of that stuff; I think it's the same mental block that keeps me from giving GoT a chance.

    So is this 1001 Albums You Need To Hear Before You Die updated yearly? Is this written a decade ago or is it five years old ? Who can really say they have the same personal list year to year or certain fads in music that turn into disgusting embrassments years later.

    Edit: It's rewritten yearly and The 2010 edition includes 25 albums released from 2005 to 2009, with the same number of albums removed from the first edition to keep the total at 1001.

    I listened to this for the first time last week.



    Absolutely. Fucking. Incredible. I've listened to tons of Fugazi, but had only heard a Minor Threat song here and there. Personally, I'd rank it higher than any single Fugazi work, and up there alongside Husker Du and Minutemen's best work.

    Damn Chris, you've had quite the essential listening program lately!

    I too have found 2014 to be a bit slow so far in terms of new releases, and after listening to Solid Gold and reading a review about Polyrock I decided to expand my post-punk knowledge. This has led me to listening to the following over the last week or so:

    Polyrock - Polyrock
    Pylon - Gyrate Plus and Park More
    The Waitresses - Wasn't Tomorrow Wonderful?
    Au Pairs - Playing with a Different Sex
    Maximum Joy - Unlimited (1979-83)
    Indoor Life - Indoor Life
    Delta 5 - Singles & Sessions 1979-81
    The Virgin Prunes - If I Die, I Die

    Any other artists/albums you all can recommend?

    Real Life is one I have listened to, and it is a really fantastic album. I've only heard of YMG so I'll be sure to check them out - just the one album?

    Was debating on wether or not I should make a thread about this. Figured there might already be one or that this might be the place for the questions.

    1) How do you all listen to music? (through the ears, duh) I recently got a trial for Spotify and love pretty much everything about it, I know I'm a bit late to the party. Pandora and most of my iTunes are now obsolete. I'll definitely be paying for it once the trial is up unless you all suggest something better.

    2) How do you guys discover new music? Many people here know bands I'd never heard of before. My "musical expertise" is in 90's-present hip-hop, but I'd consider myself as having decent general knowledge of most genres. Do you all frequent certain blogs? Do friends put you on to bands?

    I use iTunes as I am a big fan of smart playlists. I use spotify to check new stuff out and it ends up as a repository for stuff not worth adding to my library.

    I discover new stuff here mainly. And I like Stereogum.

    What the fucking fuck? Where have you been? What were your teenage years like? I absolutely CANNOT picture high school without this album on constant repeat.

    That said, for sheer artistry The Argument is the better album, although pound for pound Minor Threat had a better track record. It's kind of easy to do that when you only record a total of 26 tracks, but the glory of their work and the level of development they experienced in a relatively short amount of time is incredible. Going from the first EP to the final single they sound like a completely different band.

    Here Comes the Argument......


    That's pretty cool to admitting that you haven't listen a handful of what a lot of people are shocked at. I was thinking about this today and I probably haven't ever listen to a Led Zepplin album that wasn't a best of and lot of Classic rock in general.

    These two I have heard as well and they are both excellent albums; it's funny because when I stumbled upon Maximum Joy I found out a couple members of The Pop Group are in that band too. I have. It heard of the middle one though so I'll be sure to check it out.

    See, I've never listened to Maximum Joy! Need to check them out. That middle band is the most insane all-girl band ever. They have it on Spotify if you use that it's so rad. Patrick actually turned me onto them from the wonderful "50 overlooked albums" thread. I think a lot of those albums he talked about were post-punk, so that's another good place to look.

    That Pop Group set was punishingly loud at times too. Really grateful I got to catch them. I've done a little digging into Mark Stewart's solo work and there's a lot of quality there too.



    Speaking of solo work of post punk luminaries, Colin Newman of Wire has at least two really great solo albums, A-Z and Commercial Suicide. The former I've known for years but the latter I've just gotten into recently.

    Speaking of which, a few weeks ago I stumbled upon the most amazing gem. Rowland S. Howard, whom I of course loved his work in the Birthday Party and These Immortal Souls... released two solo albums when he was alive. Now I had no idea he did. I listened to the first one Teenage Snuff Film and was seriously in awe. It's a dark masterpiece, and why no one seems to know about it (even Nick Cave admirers) is beyond me. From the first guitar strums and vocals of Dead Radio ("you're bad for me like cigarettes, but I haven't sucked enough of you yet") to the pounding, distortion-heavy closer Sleep Alone. So if any of you haven't heard that, do it NOW.

    A-Z has a little bit of notability for spawning one of the songs in The Silence Of The Lambs, only a cover by This Mortal Coil was the version in the movie.

    Yeah, this has been on my radar for awhile, I finally gave it a listen about 3 months ago and enjoyed it immensely in parts, but it seemed a little uneven. FACT put it in their top 10 albums of the 90s I think. I need to spend more time with it.

    The only flaw I could say about the album is a few songs drag on a little too long. Other than that though, I think it's pretty damn perfect. I wish he was still alive and had the opportunity to record more stuff! I've heard great things about their lists... I think Chris made a playlist of that particular one on Spotify. I'll check it out.
