Re: Suggest an album.

You people absolutely have to listen to Burial, if you haven't already (i don't know how big he is in the world at large). There is nothing quite like it.




It's not for everyone, it might even just be an european thing. But it's the most special music I've heard in a long time.

Re: Suggest an album.

I didn't like the first one, but Untrue was a revelation. The only dubstep I can really take. Oh, and The Bug, of course.

Re: Suggest an album.

I've been listening to Anais Mitchell's new album Hadestown quite a bit lately. It's being advertised as a folk opera and is a retelling of the Orpheus and Eurydice myth, set during America's great depression. Which sounds overly artsy and weird, I know, but it worked on me.

I had trouble deciding which songs to link to directly, because this album is very much a "whole is greater than the sum of its parts" sort of deal. So I'm not sure how to sell this, but I definitely think its worth checking out (if you like folkish music).

Re: Suggest an album.

Borrowed a Gary Numan album from a friend this week, "Pure". I wouldn't have thought it was my sort of thing, but it's a great album; it seems that, as Nine Inch Nails took inspiration from people like Gary Numan a couple of decades ago, he's taking a bit of inspiration from NIN. A similar, industrial metal sound. Except that I actually prefer this to any of NIN's output.

The trouble with listening to metal is that musically, it often doesn't paint emotions for the listener, it relies more on lyrics for that. The most emotion you often get from metal is for the band to switch from a clean sounding arpeggio to a heavy, crunching riff. Or vice versa. With this, the music was could easily have spoke even without Numan's vocals; which, by the way, are also excellent. Very atmospheric, and a joy for an old-school metalhead to listen to. Which I wouldn't have expected to say.

My favorite song off that album: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lArKbydzOe4&feature=fvst
