Howdy, (Skip this part and read the update please.)
one of the things I really enjoy when time is available is discovering new music.
Lately I have taken some steps in the direction of Metal and Progressive Rock.
'Kill'em All' by Metallica.
'Reign In Blood' by Slayer.
'The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn' by Pink Floyd.
'The Dark Side Of The Moon, by "..."
I always try to begin with the beginning, from old to new.
To buy (I know this for sure):
'Wish You Were Here' by Pink Floyd.
'Animals' by "..." (Tip from a friend who digs Uriah Heep. He has LPs.)
I don't know much about these genres I can only judge by sound and your information. I prefer to start with the classics, preferably the old ones. While collecting CD I noticed that older work from an artist is usually the best work to start with.
Up to now: Metal sometimes brightens my mood and gets me going, Pink Floyd confuses me. 'The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn' sounds like pure (mental) madness which I find refreshing while 'The Dark Side Of The Moon' only gets to me in a right mood otherwise I find it 'kitsch sounding.' When it hits me it's brilliant, when not: this sounds intentionally overdone and sampled.
I need some information on where to start and what I should have.
At the moment I have added about 40 albums to my CD-collection because of this thread and there is more to come. I think I know enough now to go on finding more music related to this thread. That written feel free to add anything topic related for otherwise this thread loses its purpose. Enjoy the music...
