    The British Psych Appreciation Thread

    Wow, some really great recommendations in here. Big thumbs up to The Move! "The Stars were Fair..." is one of my favourite weird folk albums of all time. A few others to complement:   Forest   Vashti Bunyan

    The Exploration of Metal and Progressive Rock

    Yea, give it a chance. Blood Mountain was a major disappointment for me, but Crack the Skye surpassed expectations and is their most ambitious effort to date. Took me a few listens to really start loving it.

    Super Street Fighter IV

    I personally could never get used to the stick method vs. Dpad. I think what got me was the lack of a tactile indicator whether you were holding up, down or neutral. Of course, the 360 Dpad sucks too...   Lots of positive reviews regarding the Mad Catz fight pads (nice rocker pad design and...

    Dio is dead? WHAT??? Between he and Frazetta, we've just lost two classics of the Swords & Sorcery ilk.

    The Exploration of Metal and Progressive Rock

    Hmm... is it perhaps a good time to recommend Battles? I'd consider them progressive... but not "rock", by traditional standards. Worth looking into, anyway. Their album Mirrored was tied with Baroness' Red album for my favourite release of 2007.     [EDIT] If we start getting into...

    The Exploration of Metal and Progressive Rock

    Possible that I'm forgetting my own words here, but I don't think I mentioned either band. I do like Kyuss (and would suggest that 'Blues for the Red Sun' is the go-to album in their catalogue), and I KNOW I couldn't have brought up Nirvana; I was never really a fan, although I liked a lot of...

    The Exploration of Metal and Progressive Rock

    I agree Lizard isn't their best, but I feel like it's the most "progressive" (by modern standards) of their earlier output. And yes, sorry I should have been more clear: Probably wrong to do so, but I kind of put Larks'/Starless/Red into an era of it's own, distinct from their output through to...

    The Exploration of Metal and Progressive Rock

    Quote: Opinion only, of course, but Lizard is the only must-own album (other than In the Court...) from KC's early set. The title track alone is worth the price of admission, and it's the first of their albums that truly feels progressive from a contemporary perspective. In the Wake of...

    Does the fall of music ever depress you? It does me.

    I'm not entirely sure what I was saying either. Chalk it up to trying to form a well-developed piece while bouncing back and forth between work duties. At any rate, hopefully it does contribute to the discussion, rather than detract from it.

    Does the fall of music ever depress you? It does me.

    I won't belabour the points about pop music being "crap" through the ages - anything good is worth digging for, plain and simple, there is no time barrier. The real issue is the wider degradation of personal, emotional awareness with respect to philosophy and art appreciation. Without making...
