Still haven't listened to this one. To be honest, the only BT album that's ever really really impressed me was This Binary Universe--I need to re-visit BT's discography and give the new one a shot while I'm at it. I suspect it's grower music, and I have yet to give it the proper chance to grow.

 

On an unrelated note, I'm pretty tempted to call the new Swans album (The Seer) a perfect album --perfectly exhausting. I feel like I've been physically beaten after every listen. But it hurts so good.

That's actually why I was coming to this thread was to mention that album. I agree, by the way. It's so...heavy.

 

As for BT...His older 'Trance masterpieces' will feel dated nowadays even though they're amazing. The ones I'd suggest listening to are his 2 new ones (Morceau Subrose, and If the Stars are Eternal so are You and I) as well as This Binary Universe (my previous favorite album of all time dethroned by Morceau Subrosa) and These Hopeful Machines.

 

Morceau Subrosa is my favorite of his. It's different from anything he's done before. The closest thing to TBU is If the Stars... which is very good and he call it a 'sequel' to TBU. I think as far as flow goes If the Stars has TBU beat, but they're both really great. Our Dark Garden is the highlight of If the Stars...

Also, can't remember if it was mentioned or not, but Tool's Lateralus is fantastic from start to finish. Well recorded, amazing drums, just swell.

Not sure if this is brought up, but Bjork's Biophilia is notoriously good. Actually, Homogenic is beautifully recorded as well... Actually, all her albums are well recorded...

 

Ultrasone Test Demo CD is an absolute GODSEND...

Absolute art.

Very good choice. I almost put it on last night but it was a little longer than I was looking for. Might toss in the CD tonight though.

Medulla+HD 650=(indescribable)

I never gave Bjork a chance before reading this thread. Biophilia is great stuff.

post #595 of 750

She's a little tough to get into but some of her stuff is great. Biophilia is my favorite.

All her albums are all indescribable. A lot of her songs work beautifully with dark headphones. Sounds REALLLL good with the HE-400

All her albums are great stuff haha. All very well recorded, especially Biophilia.

I've only listened through Biophilia and Post so far. I wasn't super fond of Post after the first listen, but I'm going to give it another shot soon.

A lot of her songs takes time to sink in and truly excite you. I never liked some of her songs, but after multiple attempts, they are now my favorites.

Yeah, you don't pop Medulla in the first time, nod along and say "gosh golly that was terrific!". It's a lot to absorb and possibly an acquired taste. There is something about a 100% vocal soundwall that is mesmerizing.

 

Took me a long while to process and warm up to that album but I did ( plus Mike Patton helps a lot lol).
