Flawless albums - Page 48

I hadn't listened to this in a few years and forgot how much ass it kicks. I had to turn the subwoofer all the way down and my neighbor still came over to complain.

 

The bass on this record....ohmygod

I love Ascendancy, but I feel that they have grown much more since In Waves. They've burrowed a hole in the world of technicality and nailed it. With In Waves (and perhaps their upcoming album), I think they are trying to lean in the direction of musicality more. It's not saying that I feel Ascendancy wasn't good or that they lost their technical abilities, because they haven't and I don't feel that way either. I feel they are just trying to explore new worlds of music, which I find to be bold but a particularly fine motive. I can see why a lot of fans did find In Waves to be a bit sub-par from their previous work, but I enjoy seeing them grow as musicians. Though I must say, I can never forget the bad*** song that introduced me to the group and going crazy in mosh pits when they performed the song live. Sure do hope they come back to my area soon. :-)

I guess this form of music could use some extensive listening to determine what is they are lyrically saying. I used to be the same way, but I've listened to too much of this genre already to pick up most of the words.

I know this isn't going to be everyone's taste here, but Kno - Death is Silent is the best concept album in Hip-Hop history.

 

 

It's such an amazing album with NOT ONE bad song.  The production, rapping and vibe is simply perfect.

For those of you into modern jazz, check out the selftitled album by Portico Quartet. It's their most recent album and I might say quite a stunning one. Great album! Four guys, each playing a different instrument and it all comes together as one great orgasm of sound :)

 

Here a sample:

Genesis - Selling England by the Pound

Fleetwood Mac- Rumours

The Boomtown Rats - Fine Art of Surfacing

Faith No More - Angel Dust

Counting Crows - Recovering the Satellites 

Green Day - American Idiot

Lots of great stuff listed in this thread with which I agree.

Here's my personal list.

Not sure if they're flawless but...

When listening to these selections I cant listen to a little,

Gotta go all the way through.

 

Tom Waits - Blood Money

Frank Zappa - Lumpy Gravy

Miles Davis - Sketches of Spain

Georg Frederich Haas- In Vain

Michael Hedges- Breakfast in the Field

Julian Bream - 20th Century Guitar

John Zorn - Naked City

Bob Dylan - The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan

Iannis Xenakis - La Legende d'Eer

Derek Bailey - improvisation

Dave Holland - Conference of the birds

 

An odd list maybe but every one of these albums

extended my perception of music and opened me to unfamiliar genres.
