One of my favourite nerd-outs, days gone by, was reading album liner notes from the 80s/90s and trying to figure out ”Enossification” was/is.

Searched around and he is considered an early influencer (along with Phillip Glass who I saw in Buffalo forever ago). This is a nice list: https://www.louderso...st-rock-records

 

Spiderland by Slint is fantastic. That's a band that was way ahead of its time.

Good stuff.

Sorry for my wonky syntax. Small phone, and I need readers (glasses).

IIRC, Eno produced several U2 albums — including Joshua Tree. (Think of that trademark soundwash before Where the Streets Have No Name).

I don't understand the whole bro country movement. (please bare with me Kenny Chesney fans) It's just so formulaic and prescribed. Not one note sounds like a genuine piece of music derived from the soul. Just all predetermined notes designed to please as many ears as possible.

The talent in Nashville is the song writers... and they're almost always not the performers these days. The same songs are marketed and sold by the song writing community to both pop and country musicians. If country, they'll change the key, maybe slow it down, add some twang, and voila... "country"

To quote dark, it's all garbage. Yet so many people I know eat this ###### up. I honestly feel bad for them. They are being spoon fed crap and are ingesting it by the heap full.

Just read an article in which Maynard James Keenan puts out a plea to the rest of Tool to finish the new album, already. Having waited twelve years, it had best be good...

I’ve read a similar article. I have no doubt it will be good. It’s not like it’s a group of drug addled hosers.
Lateralus and 10,000 Days were both epic IMO.
No doubts about their new endeavor.
Can’t ###### wait.

Lateralus may have been the absolute pinnacle of human achievement. I'm not kidding.

Depends upon one's definition of old, but for the record: Lateralus was released shortly after I graduated from college.

So about a decade younger than me. I'll take Mer de Noms for 1000 in the better than tool albums category Alex.

I have grown to love Mer de Noms. But I saw APC open for Nine Inch Nails before the album came out, and left with the impression that they were pretty much fake Tool trying to convince us all that they are not fake Tool. Took me awhile to come around...

Anyone like country ? Check out Sarah Shook and the Disarmers. More homegrown country as opposed to the new country.I'm not a country fan but I dig her style.

The only "country" that anyone should ever listen to has been and is being made by Birdcloud. You're welcome.

I think I've posted Post Modern Jukebox vids in this thread a half dozen times.  Haley Reinhart is dreamy.  :wub: :wub: :wub:

Speaking of proper country, and yeah it's fairly "roots" as well, this gal has made her way onto my radar in a big way:

I don't hate that version but Cornell has such a haunting gutteral voice. Hard to top in the Rock genre.

Cornell may have no peers as a rock vocalist. The clips in this where they isolate on his voice give me chills.

As the video suggests, Robert Plant is a Cornell predecessor.

 

And while different, we can always put Mercury in the same rarified air.

I'm a little late on this and I'm far from a country music person but Chris Stapleton, Zac Brown are pretty good and an album that's been out for awhile with Mark Knopfler and Emmylou Harris is worth a listen. Also Joe Ely was a good listen too a while back especially his live albums.

The Knopfler/ Harris CD is "All the Roadrunning." They also put out a live version "Real Live Roadrunning."

Haven't listened to either in a very long time, but as I recall, they're pretty good. Might have to give them a re-listen. :thumbsup:
