What Albums Are You Listening To?
 
Alrighty, I noticed the old thread for this kind of thing was locked. Rather than bringing up an exact clone, I'd rather see something new, and potentially usefull.

Please read this before posting:

This is not a spam thread. Do not come in here posting what song you're currently listening to and then leave thinking you've just earned an easy post. You didn't. It will be deleted.

Instead, post something usefull. I'm going to make a sort of rough template everyone should follow. This thread can also be used in place of those "I want to listen to something new" threads.

So, in light of those "rules"... here's what I'm currently listening to:
__________________________________________________ ____________


Specifically, I'm listening to Scarecrow. I also like Hell Yes, Girl, E-Pro, Fairwell Ride, and Go It Alone quite a bit. A favorite has to be Hell Yes though.

__________________________________________________ ____________

That's my first entry into this thread. Should also form a rough template of how you should post. You can include as much information as you like, but I'd like to encourage posters to post why they like what they're currently listening to.

As I said, please don't use this thread for a quick point added to your post count. I will be watching it closely.

Sci-Fi Crimes by Chevelle, it's wonderful, my favorite song is probably Sleep Apnea, Jars is going to by the most radio friendly though. It's interesting, it has a lot of Vena Sera feel, more than other albums.

I am currently getting back into my Neil Young Harvest record. This record is absolutely amazing! 10 incredible tracks that I can listen to from start to finish. Neil's best album of all time imo. The man is a musical genius. I have been listening to it all weekend along with some of his other albums.

One of my favorite tracks: Out on the Weekend. I can't post them all, lol.


This album is tiding me over until Sep. 22. That is when the eagerly anticipated album Backspacer from Pearl Jam comes out. I cannot wait to go get this record!

Nice job @ Defcizion Chevelle is amazing.

On Topic:

Right now I'm listening to Evans Blue and COLD. I'm seeing COLD on September 18th too :). I've been in the mood for a soft, relaxing melody and thats exactly what Evans Blue delivers. Its very uplifting for depressing times. I listen to the old Evans Blue back with Matisyn new stuff sounds just like BB and I don't need two of them. So his other band parabelle is great too.

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...the_spider.jpg

A very good album and I usually listen to the whole thing, I'm not a song person. Its listening to an album or one artist at a time. Some of my favorite songs on this album would be The Day Seattle Died, Cure My Tragedy, and Wasted Years.


Gone Away is dedicated to his daughter and the music video is great.

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...ody_an_the.jpg

Great album for a not so well known band (Evans Blue). The vocals make them who they are and Kevin Matisyn is very talented. My favorite songs on this album would be Cold, Beg, and A Cross and a Girl Named Blessed.

Thats my music taste for now thats very long sorry haha. I love music and I could write about it forever...

Here's a good song from the album

ChaosGod87 08-25-2009 07:57 PM

Right now a ton of different albums, Mostly Shadows Fall earlier stuff, really liking Of One Blood right now.

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_ooE054eCE2...OfOneBlood.jpg

Couple of my favorite songs off the album,

Couple songs from this album I love.



The Kenz 08-25-2009 08:04 PM

íViva la Cobra! by Cobra Starship...a LOT. Mostly this song (which is also my most-listened song overall on last.fm - does anyone else use last?):


Probably not to many's taste, but I love poppy stuff like this. I'm waiting for their latest album to arrive, so I've been hammering the previous two.

...also Fearless by Taylor Swift. Not my usual thing really, but I think it's brilliant.

laundryman 08-25-2009 08:05 PM

Queens of the stone age - Rated R

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3282/...4c46ac9b_o.jpg

Mostly I've been listening to Feel Good Hit of the Summer, but I think the best song (and one of the best that they've ever written) is The Lost Art of Keeping a Secret. It has some other good ones like Monster in the Parasol and In the Fade.

Here's a live version that I prefer over the studio version.


It has some other good ones like Monster in the Parasol and In the Fade. I prefer the harder songs on this album but it does have some lighter ones. Hell, I like anything by Queens of the Stone Age. I just wish Josh Homme didn't have so many bands so he could make more albums with QOTSA.

DarthSoth 08-25-2009 08:25 PM

Well I always have at least one Tool album on the listen. My default Tool album is always "Lateralus". I seriously can not get too much of this album. The title track is my favorite Tool song and would definitely place in my top 5 all time. Disposition/Reflection duology is a fantastic listen, great sound with some eerie lyrics.


http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...alus-album.jpg

I jut recently picked up the new Modest Mouse album "No one's first and you're next" so it has been on the listen for the last week or so. Love Modest Mouse and this is a b-sides album of their last 2 disks so I of course already love it. Satellite Skin and Guilty Cocker Spanials are both fantastic songs from this album

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...%27re_Next.jpg


As well I have been listening to a lot of Kyuss again lately. Mostly "...And the circus leaves town" because it is such a seriously great album. I miss Kyuss. I mean I still love Queens of the Stone Age but it just isn't the same. John Garcia has such a Rockers voice. I am looking forward to seeing or more acurately, listening to Them Crooked Vultures which has Josh Homme (Kyuss, QotSA), Dave Grohl (Nirvana, Foo Fighters), And John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin) when it comes out.
One inch man, Phototropic, Tangy Zizzle, El Rodeo, Spaceship Landing, Catamaran, the list goes on, "...and the circus leaves town" is such a good album. If you have never listened to Kyuss and like rock music in the tone of Black Sabbath and Fu Manchu then you must give this album a try.

Close to the Edge - Yes
Like the unusual sound of Yes. It's prog rock, so a lot of their songs sound strange and are usually drawn out. But Yes sounds different to stuff like Pink FLoyd or Genesis I think, but both of them are still good.
Youtube doesn't have the 20 min long version of the Close to the Edge song.

Revolutionary Vol.1 - Immortal Technique
Really like what he raps about and think that the way he sounds compared to most other is quite different.
(Language warning on Youtube video btw).

YouTube - Dance With The Devil - Immortal Technique

Gorilla Stomper 08-25-2009 11:58 PM

Lately, i've been listening to a lot of machine head stuff, mainly the earlier albums like Burn My Eyes. Good to listen to if your feeling a little bit more than pissed off.

http://www.ahashare.com/uploads/images/146250.jpg


Blood For Blood is a good song aswell.

Kairi 08-26-2009 12:14 AM

For the past week or so I have been listening to the new Green Day CD, 21st Century Breakdown, since I finally got my hands on it after searching since it come out. Rather long CD, and has some great songs. I recommend a listen, it's a bit different for them. For some reason, my mom says it reminds her of The Beatles XD

Mainly this song:

QOTSA are one of my favorite bands ever. My favorite album is Songs For The Deaf, but Era Vulgaris is definitely one of my favorites as well.


Also been listening to this:
http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_n-lAIcFVQI...d+The+Duke.jpg

No particular song off of this one. I just love The Sound Of Animals Fighting. Unfortunately, I haven't had a chance to pick up their other releases yet.

SynysterMonkey 08-26-2009 12:28 AM

How convenient is this! I haven't listened to a full album for a while now until this afternoon.

BarbaricGoose 08-26-2009 04:58 AM

So, I recently decided I'd listen to the entire Ayreon rock opera. You know, and understand what everything means, not just listen to it because it's bloody brilliant. Even though that is a good reason to listen to something..

Anyway, I'm currently on Into the Electric Castle, which is the third chapter. It's fascinating so far.


Alice in Wonderland 08-26-2009 05:28 AM

I've listenend to The Sounds album Dying to say this to you at least 1 time a week since it's out. I just like the sounds music and this is my favorite album of them too. And I saw someone listening to Cobra Starship, the girl singer in Cobra is actualy the lead vocals in The Sounds, maybe you could love this, if you don't know them yet ^.^

http://mixtapemagazin.files.wordpres.../08/sounds.jpg

If you are interested of hearing from them, here's one of their songs in this album:


Today I also bought the Album 10,000 days from Tool. Heard good comments on this group so I decided to buy one of their albums and it's pretty good !

Flik Nightshade 08-26-2009 06:00 AM

"Over and out" he said with .45 to his head.
 
Alkaline Trio - Agony and Irony

http://learn.bowdoin.edu/italian/dan...nyironyee2.jpg

I know a lot of people didn't take to this album as well as previous releases, saying it wasn't as hard as other installments, but I really enjoyed this one. Over and Out, I Found a Way, and Calling all Skeletons being some of my favorite tracks.

I've been listening to a lot of Metallica and Iron Maiden. If you come to think of it, there will never be any good bands like these any more. Because of all the "new rock" shit that's out there. :mad:

Some of their good songs that I like are here. Their really inspiring and beautiful.

I'm listening to pretty much the entire DARK TRANQUILLITY full length discography, except Skydancer (I don't own it) and Fiction (thought it was terrible). Just picked up Projector yesterday and wow, so much different back then...

Anyhow...

Also rockin' my top 3 (thusfar) of '09

#1) Amorphis: Skyforger
#2) Gwar: Lust In Space
#3) Alestorm: Black Sails At Midnight (VERY close between those two)

I also picked up this bad boy yesterday along with DT: Projector!
http://www.metal-archives.com/images/2/3/4/4/234471.jpg
I've heard the 1st track on it many a damn time though, so I hope this one is as fun as their other releases. :D

I'd youtube for you guys but no flash on the computer I'm using. Just check out the links I provided and search the bands on youtube. I'm listening to a lot more but these are what go in and out of the play most often at the moment.

However, I MUST recomend the track "Where Is Zog?" by Gwar. It's amazing, and the ending antics will leave you in stitches. I catch myself walking around and, in a rough, domewhat powerful, fucked up voice shout "You're windshield needs a squeejie!!!" (however the word is spelled. squeegee? I dunno)

Uber Downing 08-26-2009 06:38 AM

At the moment it is Big Tunes Ignition, but I listen to alot of the Clubland Albums too.
Sounds stupid, but I am going to download from YouTube all the songs from Forza Motorsport 2, because they have nice remixes and there chillin :-)

Nice to see another fan of the Sounds. Best album cover ever! In my case ive been listening to their new album Crossing the Rubicon. It has a nice set of songs. Mainly tho ive been listening to the Killers alot lately. Mainly Sam's Town. For Reasons Unknown and Bling (Confession of a King) are the ones i play the most.

+

http://i206.photobucket.com/albums/b...r_album/HC.png

Both Drum And Bass bands, if you didn't know. But High Contrast is 'Liquid Funk' dnb as Black Sun Empire is 'Darksetp/NeuroFunk' dnb.

High Contrast is a one man band and the guy in the band comes from Cardiff (Where i was born and live <3) and i hope to go and see him some time as he does alot of gigs here in Wales.

Black Sun Empire is a 3 man band of Dj's. Who come from the home of electronic music, Holland. I also hope to see these's and most probably in Cardiff as Cardiff has quite a good dnb scene :D.

Black Sun Empire - End Of Me, my favourite song by them.


High Contrast - Kiss Kiss Bang Band, my favourite song by him.


The albums i am eargly awaiting are Sub Focus's new album along with Pendulum's new album (WOOOOOOO) and Dj Fresh's new album.


Sub Focus - Timewarp


Pendulum - Blood Sugar (They have many great songs but this is my favourite by them)


Dj Fresh - X Project


:D

RedstaR 08-28-2009 01:48 AM

Currently,

Chimaira - The Infection

http://www.metalmartyr.com/files/200...infection1.jpg




Slowly creeping to be my favorite band. ;X

master_shake_350 08-28-2009 10:20 AM

Of all time Hot Chip's - The Warning.

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...he_Warning.jpg

And here is my favorite song off the album:


They are an Electro-Pop band from the UK and also do remixes of other songs like Kids With Guns By Gorillaz and Take Your Mama by The Scissor Sister. Some of the band members also have solo acts.

HacksawDoomx187 08-29-2009 05:41 AM

EDIT: Couldn't get the image links to work for the album covers.

Immortal Technique: The 3rd World

Definitely not as good as his previous two albums but has a handful of gems on it.


Not an official video but still the song.


My other favorite from the album.

Protest The Hero: Kezia

This has been one of my favorite albums since it was released. Better than the one they put out after this Fortress.



Bleeding Through: The Truth


Could only find this song live.

Skillet 08-31-2009 08:50 AM

I've had this cd for a while now.


Great cd. Lonely Nation, Stars, and The Blues are some favorites. The entire cd is made of great songs though.

I am listening to this:
