After Trans try
The Three EP's
The Sophtware Slump
After listening to The Three EP's, I was like, "oh, now I get that High Fidelity joke."
We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.
Can't find any info on Trans though..
That's Grandma's sense of humor. It's a Neil Young album. That maybe those bands took some influence from.
Haa fuck I had a feeling.. downloaded Grandaddy's stuff though. So good! Thanks mang
I started with their self-titled but I don't know if that's really their best entry.
Octopus is great too.

Sigur Ros please
look at the page before this
So I went and got Husker Du's candy apple grey and i wasnt a huge fan of it.... there was about four tracks i loved and thats is it. Is there a better album or should i give up on husker du?
Depeche Mode. I've only ever listened to Violator. I'll take a few if you don't mind.
The entire run of albums from Some Great Reward through Ultra fantastic. If Violator is really your thing though, Music For The Masses would be other record most like it stylistically.
But if you want to dive into the band,
Some Great Reward
Music For The Masses
Songs Of Faith & Devotion
All is chronological order will give you a very good 13 year tour of their career. Their first three albums have some great songs, but the whole records can be hard to get through. The last couple albums are not great either, but will be worth listening to if you find yourself a fan. But those 6 middle albums, including the one you have, those are fucking great.
4/5/14 - Trentemoller - Fonda // 4/9/14 - The Knife - Fox Theater Pomona // 4/22/14 - Dillinger Escape Plane - Glasshouse// 5/23/14 - 5/26/14 Punk Rock Bowling - Las Vegas
5/28/14 - Elbow - Wiltern // 7/9/14 - Cloud Nothings - Roxy // 8/25/14 - Nine Inch Nails - Hollywood Bowl
Thanks a lot!!!
If you want an overview of the early stuff, get The Singles 81-85 or Catching Up With Depeche Mode. But I absolutely concur with Drinkey, those are the six best albums, and they show an astonishing degree of growth on the part of the band that people normally don't think to attribute to them.
I know it's a live album, but 101 deserves a mention if only as a reference point in terms of just how freaking popular they were.
I love y'all
Pop Will Eat Itself.
(I searched for Heaven 17 but the search function will not accept the latter band)
Yes. Penthouse & Pavement is by far the most stomachable Heaven 17 album. And if you can excuse (or indulge) it's more dated and campy aspects, it's one of the funnest and most biting of the early synth pop albums.
I listened to Penthouse & Pavement... and well, it is probably not for me, mostly.
I listened to a bunch of This Is The Day... and am seeing the draw. This must have sounded crazy in 1989 and I bet I would have loved this had I heard it in the 90s. I will keep listening to see how it goes.
Thanks for the recommendations!
