It isn't actually.

I've been a big Burzum fan ever since I discovered his music one and a half years ago. I have a big interest in metal in general, but only albums that are cream of the crop interest me and so my metal collection is still quite humble as I try to discover gems from amongst the thousands and thousands of metal releases available today.

That's why, even though I don't really like electronica in general, I love artists like DJ Shadow, qbert, DJ Premier, Alias, RJD2 etc who dig and dig and dig through thousands of used LPs in basement secondhand book and record stores (there is an amazing documentary called Scratch about the history of DJing and hiphop production that has a part where Shadow shows how he just digs into a huge pile in this used book store with a little Fisher Price plastic record player and some $1,500 headphones finding the hooks and beats and loops he samples).  If it's good, I'll like it and artists like Shadow prove their are true auteurs in every genre.

Yeah I still have my copy from 1980 :) 

 

There's not a single dud song, and for a double album that's no mean feat! Still sounds as fresh today.

I went through the "Deluxe Edition" or whatever its called a while back and simply put, you cannot improve on the perfection of the original. The only thing the lost tracks and out takes did for me was confirm that the original release was a perfect blend of arrangement and editing. It really stands as the defining album for a stellar band at their peak.

I cut school to go by Random Access Memories. Generations change, albums change, music lovers don't.

I always find Metal a treat and have always been a big Metal fan since I was in grade school.  I attend local concerts and festivals all the time.  I do have to say and agree with TJ Elite that the cream of the crop is sometimes difficult to seek out, and hence why my collection of Metal is still a tad small as well compared to a few other friends of mine.  I had a late night listening session with Death last night and Burzum before that.  I never heard Burzum before, so it was definitely interesting.  Death on the other hand; even though Sound of Perseverance was their final album, I still find it to be their best.


EDIT:  Been listening to Opeth, just finished listening to Blackwater Park, such an amazing work they did with this album.

I'm just glad to see people get in touch with their darker musical sides. It sounds like a pretty sensible way to go about it, I'm  much less structured myselt.

It's that old Wikipedia phenomenon, I start at say Dub, and via-via-via I end up at Afro-beat, Tech-House and Grime simultaneously. Chaos ensues.
