Found a cure for my upgrade-itus - Page 7

post #91 of 210
Wow. nice thread, bookmarked it.
I'd say Mogwai: Young team or any of their other albums.
Also, Sigur Ros - Svefn-G-Englar is good.
Both are what may (very) loosely be called rock.
Jazz: John Coltrane - The Complete Africa Brass Sessions (1961)

Pink Floyd-Wish You Were Here
The Who-Quadrophenia
Rolling Stones-Exile On Main Street

Newer Top picks

Some of my "newer" favorites are:

Switchfoot - The beautiful letdown (strong, bassy songs)
The Juliana Theory - Love (Amazing...more for the lyrics than sound presentation)
Dashboard Confessional - A Mark, A Mission, A Brand, A Scar (Smooth Acoustic)
Green Day - American Idiot (good vocals (imo) and lyrics)

Question: Are you like 16?
Answer: Yes, yes i am. (But im starting young... :] )

Sorry about your weekly grocery store paycheck? hahaha

Wow, this thread rocks. I can finally "upgrade" my music collection aswell. I like the metaphorical use of your music collection being only a mere galaxy in the universe.

As for an album, since you like hiphop aswell.. anything from People Under The Stairs

Jazz :

Quadro Nuevo - Mocca Flor

Very decent German Jazzband, and very audiophile recording. Especially with Mocca Flor, their most recent work of art.

This is a cannot miss album. One of my personal favorites.

Check out Razorlight, good new band. Also the Junior Boys for some electronica goodness.

cdnow.com is a sweet way to get 30 seconds of a preview to a song, so you dont have to waste money, and buying cds used is cheap too

Be sure you have listened to the smooth, sultry voice of Diana Krall singing jazz as she plays the grand piano, with her trio.

The Look of Love
The Girl in the Other Room

Yes, rolling stones is an amazing cd store, so much tradition with cd's under 10, even new releases, tons of imports, lots of hard to find stuff (thanks bhd812!)

And yes, i need to check out the magic sam, what was the name of the album again?
