    Atmosphere: Either the Lucy Ford LP if you want his best work or Seven's Travels if you're more of an album person.

    Flogging Molly: Swagger, their first, is their best. Everything else works off the template they created on that one, but Drunken Lullabies is still worth listening to, even if everything else they've put out hasn't really been up to snuff.

    She Wants Revenge: just don't bother. If you want to hear good music in this vein, pick up Joy Division's singles collection, Substance. It's much better than SWR but in a similar vein and recorded years prior.

    Thanks for the advice. Especially on SWR, I should just stick to Joy Division.

    I saw She Wants Revenge play with Charles Thompson and they did a badass cover of a pixies song.

    Bjork, please. I've only listened to Debut and I've never been able to get into it. Where should I go next?

    I'm of the opinion that there are two choices with Bjork. If you want to hear her at her most focused, devastating and emotional, go with Homogenic. If you want to hear her at her most wide-ranging, pop-tastic and creatively far-reaching, go with Post. Both are incredible and well worth the time, but Homogenic is one of the most gorgeous works I've heard.

    Alright, thank you. I'm going to go with Homogenic first and then Post. Thanks for the quick response too!

    edit: and upon searching that seems to be backwards chronologically. which is kind of cool.

    I can't speak on the others, but for a good Squarepusher album I'd look to "Hard Normal Daddy". Sick shit

    I loved Homogenic. I thought the last half of the album was near perfect. Walked all the way to the Empire State Building (25 blocks) while listening. Great walk. Alarm Call is amazing.

    Didn't really like Post. There were a few songs I liked (Enjoy and Isobel), but overall I thought it wasn't as good as Homogenic.

    I'll check out the other two albums you guys mentioned. Thanks a lot.

    Oh man, Ods, if you're in NY, PLEASE listen to Ladies and Gentlemen You Are Floating in Space by Spiritualized. It's my favorite "walking through Manhattan" album in the world. If you like psychedelics, it'll also burst your mind into a new realm.

    Sevens Travels and You Cant Imagine How Much Fun We're Having are more so the kinda albums to get your head bobbin', but reminding you why Slug is still so good at what he does...

    after these albums you start to see a diff direction taken, touring w/ a live band, just lost a lot of its production value and now Sean is grown and a family man, but still putting in the work. Its obviously just my opinion, a lot more people these days dig their stuff than in the past.

    if you want a more personal look at the artist check out the Sad Clown Bad Dub Series, more specifically Sad Clown 2 and 4 (DVD)
    Coachella 07 (the introduction), 08 (the bands), 09 (the documentary), 10 (the people i came with), 11 (the relationship test... we passed), 12 (whatever the weather, Dirty Epic forever), 13 (the year of the troll)

    holy fuck this album is good. getting more of their stuff. can't believe i've never heard of this band... ignorance is showing. but i'm trying/learning.

    can someone recommend an album by The Verve? I've never listened to them but I've seen the name obviously.

    Just listen to the Verve's stuff chronologically. A Storm in Heaven followed by A Northern Soul followed by Urban Hymns. You can leave Forth till the end...it is not a bad album but it is not great either. Urban Hymns is by far their most accessible album, but seeing the movement from super psychedelic and dreamy to epic pop hits is pretty interesting. Plus all three of those albums totally slay. The first two are some of my favorite drive-at-night music ever.

    Oh Dr. Dog is great! Fate is really good, it is well recorded, flowing, yet very raw with the vocals, which is nice. The new one, Shame Shame, is a little bit more up beat, bouncier.
    You'd never guess they're just some young'uns. Really fun to watch live if you can catch them.

    Touche.

    Too bad I have work to do. Maybe later some walking. Today was a great day. Listened to Ladies and Gentleman and walked down to a park. Layers and layers of sound. Really great album.

    And bmack, I gotta say, I have been stalking your taste a bit lately. Not really on purpose, but in the beginning of the BMOTM thread your top 10 albums stood out and I listened to Boredoms for the first time. SO sick. So thanks.

    Their self titled third album is probably a good place to start. It's a good balance of their varied approaches and it sounds significantly less like shit than the first two albums (which are both great but have terrible production value, which is part of the charm but isn't to everyone's liking.)

    Meaning there were 3 separate self-titled albums or meaning their third album was self-titled?
