Albums that are physically/mentally/emotionally exhausting, yet highly recommended? - Page 3

post #31 of 155

Now see, I'm that odd cat you've heard about, the one who luvvvs hisself some Beefy and the Magic Band, but isn't one of Trout Mask Replica's partisans. It's too unwieldy or sump'n. Start talking about Mirror Man, Shiny Beast (Bat Chain Puller) and Doc At The Radar Station, though, and yeah, I'm right with you.

Once got, tho, whoooooooooooooo boy. Perhaps one of the best albums of all time :)

With you on Mirror Man, tb....you heard Grow Fins?

Despite my love of TMR, my desert island Beefheart would be have to be Strictly Personal. Gimme Dat Harp Boy still has the capacity to get me being highly embarrassing on the dancefloor any time I hear it, so I guess 'exhausting' may fit, lol.

 

Anyways, before we turn this to a Beefheart love-in,  I'll also add Verklakte Nachte (sp?) by...um...oops, can't think. Keep thinking Schopenhauer but obviously not! Golly, my memory's gone on the blink....Blimey, I'll have to google it (the shame.....).

Funny, I was listening to disc 2 of Grow Fins while typing that last post. Some of that live stuff is killer.

 

Here're some other (non-Beefheart) recommendations:

 

Ornette Coleman - Body Meta

 

Ornette Coleman - Dancing In Your Head

When I think of exhausting, noise art albums pop into mind. They exist outside the framework, or the references are deeply buried. As in Sheer Hellish Miama by Kevin Drumm. It can be work to listen to something like it but also deeply rewarding of course.

x2 on that period of OC's music - really beautiful stuff.

Schoenberg....

 

dammit.

 

Hey & Dancing in Your Head..... I'll bet your record collection is simpatico with mine (or vice versa).

 

I would've thought Free Jazz, but I don't find that tiring at all.

Could be…it's funny, Free Jazz is one of the first Ornette records I heard, but it's never been the one from that period I return to alot. Really dig Ornette On Tenor and the streamlined Ornette!, where the rhythm-section gets kinda linear and OC seems like he could spin out choruses forever.

 

Another disc I forgot…

 

David S. Ware Quartet - Third-Ear Recitation (not one, but two deconstructions of "Autumn Leaves")

Anything from the OP?



When I created the thread, I had two albums in mind:

 

Converge - Jane Doe (2001, Metalcore/Mathcore/Post-Hardcore)

http://bastonate.files.wordpress.com/2009/12/cjd.jpg

 

Celeste - Jane Doe (2008, Screamo/Sludge Metal)

I second the mention of Converge - Jane Doe. That album melted my brain the first time I listened to it.

 

Exhausting listens as of late, yet very rewarding:

 

The Ruins of Beverast - Foulest Semen of a Sheltered Elite

Teitanblood - Seven Chalices

Kerasphorus - Cloven Hooves at the Holocaust Dawn

Demolition Hammer - Tortured Existence

Proclamation - Messiah of Darkness and Impurity

Manticore - Bowels of the Holy Anoint Us In Evil

Meshuggah - Chaosphere

 

 

post #41 of 155

Venetian Snares - Songs about my cats

post #42 of 155

Nine Inch Nails, yeah.

 

Also...

 

mewithoutYou - Catch For Us The Foxes

post #43 of 155

June Tabor's Against The Streams: nothing earth shattering, but a slow burn that just keep sipping into your soul.

I have to agree that the former album is rather exhausting and yet quite compelling too.  Never heard of Celeste; must check it out.  Kind of looks like the same model on both covers btw.
