    That new one by The Men is absolute FIRE - that fucking sax solo! Really like the new Liars track, too; it sounds like we're in for a rave-y version of WIXIW. The Real Estate track is nice and all, but it didn't really grab me tbh.

    I seriously just don't understand how Liz Phair could go from making an amazing, pretty much perfect record in Exile In Guyville to 2003's Liz Phair...

    I listened to 3 albums for the first time front-to-back today.

    Dead Kennedys - Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables



    Everyone's heard California Uber Alles, but man it isn't even among the 5 best songs on this album. Such a killer record front to back.


    A Tribe Called Quest - The Low End Theory



    Has a bit of that goofy early '90s hip hop lyrics (Show Business), but man the beats are so good and ahead of their time. Q-Tip just kills everything.


    Herbie Hancock - Head Hunters



    Even though I always see Herbie labeled as jazz, I always kind of assumed (without ever having heard a song of his before now) that he was closer to instrumental funk than anything. And that's exactly what this was. I assume Beck had to get permission to sample Chameleon for Hell Yes, no?

    You really hadn't listened to the Dead Kennedy's and ATCQ albums before!? Damn. Definitely some of the best albums of their respective genres. I have not listened to the Herbie Hancock one yet, the only song I've heard from him is Watermelon Man. Probably need to get on that soon.

    Not in full! I had heard a song here and there from both albums, but hadn't ever sat down with either before today. With January always being a slow month for new music, this year I'm really trying to use the month as best I can to listen to some classics that I haven't before.

    See, I don't think the 2003 self-titled is THAT bad or worthless as a lot of people have said. The last 3 songs are solid, and I'll defend 'Love/Hate' and 'Take a Look' (and, to a degree, 'HWC'). But yeah, some of the stuff on that album just pisses me off.

    Now I'm gonna go listen to whitechocolatespaceegg, my favorite album of hers.
    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.

    Listened to a bunch more albums for the first time on a long drive today:

    Motorhead - Ace of Spades



    A blast of energy front-to-back. All the more excited for their Coachella set now.


    Clipse - Hell Hath No Fury



    Not bad. Entertaining. But after hearing Sushov call it an undisputable classic I expected more.


    Slowdive - Souvlaki



    Really good. More on the mellow side than I had imagined.


    The Sonics - Here are the Sonics!!!



    Fantastic. I can't even imagine how much fun these guys must have been back in the day.


    The Gun Club - Fire of Love



    Bryan and Zack have been singing the praises of this album for years now, and I've heard some of the songs at various past gatherings, but didn't actually put this on front to back until today. An all-time classic...not a single skippable track and definitely the best first listen I've had in some time.


    Moby Grape - Moby Grape



    I think I might have listened to this a really long time ago? Regardless, it's been at least 10 years and bmack talking about it in that other thread made me want to revisit it. I had always thought of them as, let's say an equal wage man's (get it? lol) Grateful Dead but the two really have very little in common. And this was just wonderful. Omaha is the best song ever.

    Hot damn! So many great things in a short amount of time. There are some of my all time favorites between those two bursts. Give Clipse more time, because it's really fuckin' good.

    Yeah, I'd say maybe you're just used to the production style on Hell Hath No Fury being absorbed into rap over the last decade, but nope, that shit still sounds like nothing else in the world.

    Gun Club was a band that was so full of greatness. Check out Mother Juno for some killer stuff, including a guest solo from Blixa Bargeld of Einsturzende Neubaten and The Bad Seeds.

    Definitely. They're my favorite LA punk band, even beating out Black Flag, The Germs, X, etc.... Will do! Of course I've been meaning to check out that and Las Vegas Story for a while now but have seriously just been too enamored with their first two haha. And I actually just recently bought Las Vegas Story on vinyl (reissue) but haven't been able to play it because I'm still in the process of building my turntable set-up. The record shop was about to close so I just quickly asked if he had any Gun Club stuff in stock. The dude's face instantly lit up and we talked about them and related bands (Beasts Of Bourbon, etc.... He wrote me down a list of bands to check out but I forget where it is!)

    There were so many great LA punk bands but what set Gun Club apart is that Jeffrey actually had an amazing voice and songwriting chops to boot. Plus they never were bound to that genre... Gun Club forever

    Alright, so I've been going over the list of 1001 Albums You Need To Hear Before You Die or whatever it is and figuring out which ones I don't have. There's a whole bunch of just awful choices, so there's a bunch of stuff I've kind of written off or have read mixed reviews of or whatever that makes me wonder if they're actually worth listening to, which is where you lot (well, those of you whose opinions I trust) come in. I have two lists, one of things I'm skeptical of but maybe there's some value there, and another of shit I've made my mind up on already and just don't care about. I'm mostly looking for people to make the case for any of the albums on the first list (or if they suggested the wrong album by an otherwise decent act), but if there's something that you really want to try to change my mind on off the second list (excluding Green Day, Nine Inch Nails, Rage Against The Machine, Pink Floyd and Oasis, I already know there's supporters here and I'm just not that interested), go for it.

    I think you and Bryan have a much higher tolerance for classic rock than I do though.

    We do. If you're not in a classic rock tolerant mood, the one record that I LOVE that's on there is the Vines one. When it was released it was completely overshadowed by records like Is This It and White Blood Cells. Get Free and Outtathaway are the two singles you might have heard, but the real gems imo are toward the end of the album - Mary Jane and 1969.

    Wow, here's a few I like:

    o Traffic – John Barleycorn Must Die
    Not my favorite Traffic album, but a decent enough picture of what made them a compelling band about half way through their career. Captures them moving away from the blues rock palate they worked with in the '60s and going into the jazz fusion thing that they did in the '70s.

    o John Mayall’s Blues Breakers – With Eric Clapton
    The first truly awesome Clapton album, recorded between his work with the Yardbirds and Cream. I really like this one.

    o Crosby, Stills & Nash – Crosby, Stills & Nash
    Just a gorgeous album, one of the best artifacts of harmony singing ever.

    o Cream – Disraeli Gears
    The best Cream album, and one of the best blues rock albums of the '60s. I actually prefer this album to any of Hendrix's contemporary albums.

    o Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young – Déjà vu
    Even better than the previous CSN album. One of my favorite albums of the 1970s.

    o Lynyrd Skynyrd – Pronounced Leh-nerd Skin-nerd
    So many wonderful rock songs on this album. I had to listen to Drive-By Truckers before I ever got around to "getting" Skynyrd and moving beyond the dumb cliches and stereotypes about them.

    o Allman Brothers – At Fillmore East
    My favorite Allman's album. A total masterpiece of guitar work.

    o Boston – Boston (1st Album)
    Not a huge Boston fan, but the influence of this album can't be understated. Hard to imagine, say, Siamese Dream or the Blue Album without this.

    o Rush – 2112
    Goofy as fuck, but listen to at least the title track.

    o Rush – Moving Pictures
    The best Rush album, you've surely heard the key singles. There's a certain teenage boy in me that can't help but love how epic and ridiculous the whole thing is.

    o Police – Reggatta de Blanc
    I'll vouch for all five Police albums; this one was the breakthrough in America.

    o Simple Minds – New Gold Dream (81, 82, 83, 84)
    Simple Minds at their most anthemtic. I love this kind of album, but it can out U2 at its own game at certain points in the proceedings.

    o Fagen, Donald – Nightfly
    Smoother and slicker than even Aja and Goucho were. If meticulously fussed over studio jazz rock is your thing, you'll love this . . .

    o Frampton, Peter – Frampton Comes Alive
    At least listen to "Do You Feel Like We Do"

    o Springsteen, Bruce – Rising, the
    Bruce's post 9/11 album. Return to E Street form for the first time since the '80s. There are some clunkers and early 2000s production, but also some of the best songs of his later career.


    Fuck No:
    o Coldplay – A Rush of Blood to the Head
    o Killers – Hot Fuss
    o Kings of Leon – Aha Shake Heartbreak

    These albums were all actually good. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    o Derek & the Dominos – Layla & Other Assorted Love Songs
    I love this album, EC and Duane Allman just tearing it up.

    o Aerosmith – Toys in the Attic
    o Aerosmith – Rocks
    These albums actually kick serious ass.

    o Clapton, Eric – 461 Ocean Boulevard
    o Eagles – Hotel California
    I like mid 70s AOR, so there you have it . . .

    o Def Leppard – Hysteria
    I fucking love this album, no apologies. One of the most immaculately produced pop albums of its time, and if we were better we would remember it like we do Thriller. Pyromania is also enjoyable.

    o Duran Duran – Rio
    Such a fun, slick slice of nostalgia. Ask Crispin, he can muster an actual defense on the merits, but I would put this among my favorite big commercial albums from the '80s.

    o U2 – All That You Can’t Leave Behind
    U2 settling into its role as a U2 cover band, but they manage to knock out a few timeless tracks on this one.

    I've dismissed Layla and probably Clapton in general simply based on how much I fucking hate the title track.

    o ZZ Top – Tres Hombres - Their best album, and worth listening to at least once.

    o Boston – Boston (1st Album) - of its era. Which was like my sophomore year in high school. It's slick as all hell (not in a good way) and doesn't have much merit on its own, but might be worth a listen just for historical value.

    o Rush – 2112 - I loved this album until I lost my virginity.

    o Police – Reggatta de Blanc - still my favorite Police album, but I only like about 2 1/2 of their albums, so that's not saying a lot

    o Simple Minds – New Gold Dream (81, 82, 83, 84) - this is worthwhile

    o Waterboys – Fisherman’s Blues - I pretty much have this album memorized.

    o Adams, Ryan – Gold - This is a good album.

    o Giant Sand – Chore of Enchantment - I don't know this album specifically but I support anything having to do with Giant Sand.

    o Springsteen, Bruce – Rising, the - Worthy. Not "first 7 albums" great, but pretty good.

    o Aerosmith – Toys in the Attic
    o Aerosmith – Rocks - these are what 13 and 14 year old TomAz cut his teeth on.

    Seconded. I heard this for the first time in years just a few months ago.. outside, in the sun, drinking beer, and it was on loud as all fuck. And I thought, damn, this is really a very good song.

    Maybe?: The theme of the Maybe? section seems to be classic rock records that get less frequent notice, but which are nevertheless fantastic. There is lots of classic rock here I think you could really get into, given a chance.

    o Cream – Disraeli Gears
    This is just really good blues rock, and the way Clapton slowly accelerates his guitar playing in White Room is fantastic. I'm not a huge Clapton fan by any means but this is a great record.

    o Donovan – Sunshine Superman
    I think you'd like this. Donovan gets goofy at times, gets weird, gets folky and generally has kind of a Beck vibe to him. When he's good, he's really good.

    o Santana – Abraxas
    "I never ordered Santana Abraxas! I don't want Santana Abraxas! I don't even know what Santana Abraxas is!"
    -A Serious Man

    o Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young – Déjà vu
    I like the CSN album alright, but I think this is the one you'd dig if you're gonna like any of them. The harmonies are fantastic, the opening tracks on each side just shred and there are two absolute Neil Young classics.

    o Quicksilver Messenger Service – Happy Trails
    It cuts the difference between avant-jam music from the 60s and more blues-based guitar rock. The first half can get pretty out there and is really worth listening to. I love the shit outta this album.

    o ZZ Top – Tres Hombres
    Crank it. It's beer music at its best.

    o Lynyrd Skynyrd – Pronounced Leh-nerd Skin-nerd
    Although this is right up there for great beer music. Skynyrd had three excellent records, but this is the best one.

    o Deep Purple – Machine Head
    The only Deep Purple record I know. Space Truckin' and Highway Star are jam city if you're ever looking for high octane rock tracks.

    o Boston – Boston (1st Album)
    Big, dumb fun. Almost every song was a huge hit and every song sounds impeccably perfect blasting out of car stereo speakers. I just love this so so much.

    o Simple Minds – New Gold Dream (81, 82, 83, 84)
    This is a kickass album, but honestly if you want to hear a Simple Minds record that will probably click a whole lot more with you, check out Reel to Real Cacophony. That one is great and very indebted to bands like Cabaret Voltaire, Joy Division and the more accessible Throbbing Gristle work.

    o Vega, Suzanne – Suzanne Vega (1st Album)
    o lang, k.d. – Shadowland
    o Chapman, Tracy – Tracy Chapman (1st Album)
    I have passing familiarity with all three of these, and if you're ever in the mood for introspective lady singing, they're all good enough. I prefer the Suzanne Vega album out of all these.

    o Vines – Highly Evolved
    There's more pop and weird psych to this one than the singles would suggest. It never got a fair shake, but it's a very decent record.

    o Libertines – Libertines (1st Album)
    I think this is probably supposed to be Up the Bracket rather than the S/T. If so, I'd recommend it for a rockin', sloppy good time. I used to listen to this one religiously back in high school.

    Fuck No:
    o System of a Down - System of a Down (1st Album)
    I think of these guys, at their best, like a bizarro metal band thought up by Jello Biafra and Frank Zappa. They use lots of punk rock in their sound, they do politics with a sneer, they pull out odd time signatures, goofy asides and weird song structures. Toxicity! is the better album, but this one is solid.

    o Derek & the Dominos – Layla & Other Assorted Love Songs
    This is just great. If you like blues rock at all, you'll find something to love here.

    o Aerosmith – Toys in the Attic
    o Aerosmith – Rocks
    Another person throwing my hat in the ring for these two. Jams.

    o Meat Loaf – Bat Out of Hell
    Seriously, give it at least one spin. It's so fucking ridiculous, hammy, cheesy and bombastic, but that's all intentional and it's quite a bit of fun if you can dig that stuff. I could see you having a great time with this record if you're in the right mood.

    o Hole – Live Through This
    o Hole – Celebrity Skin
    Dude, start with the first Hole record, prior to Live Through This. That thing is so up your alley, full of noise and anger and great songs. Live Through This polishes that but still brings the songs hard. Celebrity Skin isn't as good, but it's still a very solid album.

    The Vines were my favorite "The" band of the time, at least at the time. Highly Evolved was fantastic.
