  Sorry I havn't posted anything recently. I've been very busy. Once I get some links together, I have a new subject planned for posting. Hopefully this will be soon.

Also, if anyone would like to take the responsibility of posting an ad on community ads, I would appreciate it. I forget to.

mood: satisfied
music: Guster, So Long
First things first, I'm Sasha. My friend Lucey told me about this community. Sounds like my kind of thing, so Hello everybody. Now, for my favorite album list:

5. Smashing Pumpkins, Siamese Dream
My favorite of the Pumpkins albums, and I like them all. BCorgan had to play alot of the instruments on this album, something that I didn't know until recently, because D'Arcy and James Iha were constantly fighting and Jimmy Chamberlin was too fucked up to play alot of the time. But you can totally feel the tension in the album, it was a good result. Corgan's disfunctional love in the album is amazing. "Cherub Rock" and "Geek USA" are my two favorite songs on it.

4. Ween, Chocolate and Cheese
I had to put either a Ween album, or They Might Be Giants on my list, and this is my favorite of them all. Whenever I feel down I can listen to Ween, because it'll either have me smiling, laughing, or realizing that my problems aren't that bad. I mean, at least I don't have "Spinal Meningitis (Got me Down)".

3. Poe, Hello
I like this album because it surprises me so much. From one song to the next, if it's your first time hearing it you don't know what your going to get because there are so many different influences. Up-tempo to mellow tunes, it really a very well rounded album, and something I've been listening to for about 5 years now.

2. Oasis, (What's the Story) Morning Glory?
Trying too hard to be like the Beatles? Maybe. Probably. But I still love this album. Liam Gallagher has a very interesting voice. I could listen to him sing all day. It was a toss-up between this and Definately Maybe, but I went with this one because of the amazing amount of catchy ass tunes this has. I can sing word for word every song on the album. (and I probably sound like a teeny-bopper now!)

1. Radiohead, OK Computer
Definately one of my favorites. The first time I heard it I thought it would be a great soundtrack for a dream. This album is masterpiece after masterpiece. I think this album made put them over the top for band of the late 90's for me. I've gone thru 3 copies. I can't seem to hold onto it. I'll lose it, and instinctively go out and buy it again the next day.

*Not in any order. By the way, just wanted to say hello to everyone, and I look forward to reading what everyone has to say!

mood: contemplative
music: City of Angels by the Distillers
Wow! This has bothered me! How pathetic is that? I don't want to leave something out and remember it later. Or forget something that I shouldn't forget. So I'll give it my best shot. Trying to think back, not just remember recent stuff that I love. It'll probably be mostly albums that have inspired me the most. I'll do them alphabettically by the first name of the band/artist. Here goes...

1. The Doors - The Doors (debut, 1967)
This album really does have it all. From the pop songs like Break On Through and Light My Fire, to the bluesy Backdoor Man, the Doors started a change in California's trend of psychedelic bands like the Dead and Jefferson. And broke the barrier of with the epic The End. The most poetic album I've ever heard. End of the Night and Crystal Ship are two more great cuts from the album.

2. Fiona Apple - Tidal (debut, 1996)
Wow! she was a teen when this album was made. I've felt a connection to her ever since I first listened to this album. We have a few similarities in our background. I still can't listen to Sullen Girl without tearing up. An excellent mix of beautiful piano playing and emotional lyrics. I'm still praying for the day when tweens and young teens listen to this album instead of Britina. She has the soothing voice of an angel.

3. Jeff Buckley - Grace (debut, 1994)
This debut from musician Tim Buckley's son was amazing! The most alluring part of this album was the potential it showed for follow ups. Sadly, Buckley drowned in an offshoot of the Mighty Miss in 1997. He was compared to a folky Robert Plant alot. The haunting 'Hallelujuh' cover is the highlight of the album to me, with 'Last Goodbye' right up there. There have been a few other EP's released of some of his recordings, but this album hinted at greatness.

4. Radiohead - OK Computer (1997)
This album to me proved that Radiohead was here to stay. They've taken such leaps in ever album they've released. They can take me from one extreme to another in a matter of minutes, then throw me back down. They could have easily became an MTV band after 'Creep', but resisted, unlike alot of bands. Thom Yorke has one of the most amazing/miserable voices I've heard, and the Greenwood brothers are great on this effort.

5. The Sex Pistols - Never Mind the Bullocks Here's the Sex Pistols (I think it was 1977)
The most controversial, and possibly influential albums of the 70's, NMtBHtSP challenged many aspects of Britains society. The Pistols are probalby the most recognized punk band of all time, thanks to this album. Johnny Rotten sounds like a sarcastic maniac, and Glen Matlock on bass (replaced after the album's release by Sid Vicious) is very expressive. 'Anarchy in the U.K.' is the Pisols at there absolute best. Probably not an album for people with 'radio friendly' tastes.

And there they are. There are alot that I had to leave off, but those are probably a good start to my top five.

  Here are my five favorite albums. Eh- I can't decide on which ones are better than the others so... IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER.

5. ANI DIFRANCO- DILATE I think this is by far Ani's best work. When I was 15 I had an older friend make me listen to it. She said it reminded her of me and didn't know why, and when I listened I didn't give it back for weeks because I immediately felt a connection to her songs- a lot of people don't think this is Ani's best work but because of where I was at in my life and the liberation I felt when I listened to the album, this one is definitely one of my favorites.

4. POE- HAUNTED Poe rules. End of story. Although she's only come out with two albums, every single song of hers is just fantastic. (She has enough B-tracks to make a third album too!) Not only do I feel like every woman on earth should listen to her (she's SO girl-power) but Haunted is just a masterpiece. After her father died of cancer, Poe was digging through boxes in her basement and found a bunch of old tapes of her father speaking to her and her brother. Throughout the album you can hear his voice, and although that sounds creepy its really not. The album is surreal, and very touching.

3. POE- HELLO Ok. I just asked myself "Should I put Poe twice or no?" I decided to, because her first album is much different than Hello. Its got such a groovy trip hop feel to it. Especially songs like "Junkie" and "Hello." Its probably the most eclectic, moody albums I've ever heard. You hear songs like "Another World" which is upbeat and makes you want to shake your ass- and then "Angry Johnny" which is angsty as hell. Oh yeah, and the entire album was created using the Protool computer program which is impressive.

2. NINE INCH NAILS- THE FRAGILE The most surreal, brilliant album ever. Obviously Trent is obsessive-compulsive, because this album is perfect in every way. I also think its a nice change from the regular depression-theme he usually has on his albums. I know some people who aren't NIN fans but love this album because of its beauty.

1. THE GOO GOO DOLLS- DIZZY UP THE GIRL This album is so underrated its ridiculous. I know most people look at the Goo Goo Dolls and want to puke because they're so sensitive and radio friendly. Those people are confused- the songs you didn't hear on the radio from Dizzy Up The Girl were just magnificent. I think it would be easier to appreciate their amazing talent if the majority of GGD fans didn't consist of horny teenage girls. The band definitely hit its musical peak with Dizzy...

music: Dead Kennedys, Too Drunk to Fuck
Sorry I havn't posted in a while. I've been really busy.

Ok, so time for a new subject. This time it is..... Top Albums. What are you favorite 5 albums, and why? Mine are:

5. Nine Inch Nails, Pretty Hate Machine. My first nin album. Although it's a bit too electronically influenced for it's own good, over all it's my favorite halo. It's a perfect soundtrack for when you just broke up/somehow got screwed over and want sulking music.

4. Ben Folds Five, The Unauthorized Biography of Reinhold Mesner. The second album by BFF that I bought. It's more toned down I think than Whatever and Ever Amen, and I can listen to it constantly for a long time before I get sick of it.

3. Radiohead, The Bends. My first Radiohead album, and probably my favorite to date. It has Fake Plastic Trees, which is the song that got me to LOVE radiohead. Overall it's a wicked good album, and nice to listen to after smoking pot & when youre on a mellow high.

2. Ours, Distorted Lullabies. One of my 'original' CDs that I got around 8th grade. The music is just beautiful, Jimmy Gnecco's voice is amazing, and I don't think there's a song on there that I don't like. That got me into slightly darker music than before.

1. Matchbox Twenty's Mad Season. I got it in 8th grade, and it got me to really get into music. Think of it as a "first crush" type thing, except music. After this, I started seriously listening to & getting into music. It also changed the type of music I listened to; it brought me from B*Witched and Weird Al to the Goo Goo Dolls, Ours, Ben Folds Five, and basically most of what I listen to today. I also had a huge crush on Rob Thomas, but that's another story. It will always hold a special place in my heart and in my stereo.

Here's a website you guys might wanna check out:

http://www.noripcord.co.uk/

It's got reviews of live shows, singles, albums, and a few movies. It's mostly Indie/Alternative stuff, but there are a few mainstream artists (beck, radiohead) mentioned. As far as I can tell, there isn't a section where you can dload or preview music, but if you have Kazaa or any other music sharing program, you can dload anything that sounds interesing.

Hi everyone. I'm Lucey. Joined the community a few day's ago, and I thought I'd introduce myself. I'm 19, from the U.S. originally, but I live in France now. Music has been my best friend, my lover, my worst enemy, my mother and father since I was a teenager. I listen to pretty much anything that catches my ear. I played for a little over a year with a band in California. We signed with Lookout! records, but after (almost) finishing our first album I decided that I really wanted nothing to do with an album produced by a studio, even if it did mean free studio time. It took alot of our original, creative touch away. So I moved here, to write, relax, maybe slowly get back into a studio (sort of a pseudo-Morrison type of thing). I love discussing music with other aficionado's, so I thought this was the perfect place for me. So I'm looking forward to having some fun here.

  I saw this community and I got really excited. I LOVE music, and I love talking about it.

My name is Mariann, I am 18 and I love music of all kinds. Well, not exactly. I do like everything from industrial to oldies. My favorite bands are Nine Inch Nails, Ani Difranco, the Goo Goo Dolls, Led Zeppelin, Rufus Wainwright, Queen, and Bikini Kill. Its pretty eclectic.

I hate labels though. Not so much NAMES FOR MUSICAL GENRES but the trends that go along with music really bug me. It makes unique music such as indie or emo or punk into a style, and I've never seen music as anything except what it is. Music.

I really don't listen to the radio that much, unless its the classic rock station. Most of the stuff you hear on the radio doesn't represent anything close to the good stuff out there. With that said, I am DEVASTATED to hear abotu Liz Phair's new album. She's one of those women who really got me interested in girl-power and whatnot, and hearing that she let the Matrix (songwriters for artists such as Backstreet and Avril) write stuff for her is so disappointing. I won't call her a sellout yet, not until I hear her new album.

I think I'll post a topic every week or so, to give us something to talk about (all 2-3 of us >.<)
This week's topic: Cover songs, good or bad?
With me, it depends on who's doing what song. Johnny Cash did a freakin AWESOME cover of Nine Inch Nail's Hurt, but on the other hand, the Goo Goo Dolls should seriously stick to their own songs. Sometimes I like the covered version more than the original, like with Ours' versions of Bohemian Rhapsody and Femme Fatale. (I don't mean that Ours did it better than the original, I just prefer the cover) I think Marilin Manson did horrible things to Pink Floyd's The Wall, though, so it can be a bad thing. I guess it depends on who's doing what song. Overall, I really like covers. They're a way of hearing a song done a little different, plus they sometimes introduce a song/artist to people that might not here it otherwise.

  A little about your humble moderator.

I'm 16, female, name's Kaeti and I come from a shitty town in upstate New York. I listen to a lot of different music. Just to name a few bands: Radiohead, Nine Inch Nails, Ours, Death Cab for Cutie, Matchbox Twenty, Leftover Crack, Pink Floyd, Lou Reed/The Velvet Underground, Sublime. Plus I have an unfortunate facination with Elton John. My mom has given me a tolerence of country, traditional Irish music, and John Denver. Just about the only thing I really hate is ICP, Twizted, and anything associated with them.
I freakin love talking about music; I've found that it's the only thing I can talk about with ANYONE. Thus, the making of the community. Hope y'all enjoy it.

mood: artistic
music: You and I both - Jason Mraz
Hello all. Stupid comp.. I made an entry but it took me to an error page..grr... anywho, on to my introduction...

My name is Darcy and I'm addicted to music.. *Hi Darcy!* lol Just a joke... anywho. I am addicted to music. I have a very large collection of a mix of different music. My father taught me what good music is. I must admit though, the pop sound can catch my ear every once in a while, but GOOD music will forever have my voice. (hey, that's a good saying.. Keep that!) Anywho.

I listen to everything from Eminem to the Beatles. I listen to Jazz,(my fathers doing),Alternative, hard rock, soft rock, medium rock..*lol* just another joke... And my favorite band of all time has to be the Beatles. And I can make my point people! So come on..make me a disbeliever!! =P I mean, truly, who can go from the "boy band" sound to the sound of a sitar (sp?) and make it sound sooooo good? huh? Give me one band, and...and I'll STILL BE A BEATLES FAN!! (sorry people, I'm just a tad bit hyper. You know how teenagers get) Yes, that's right.. I'm a TEENAGER!

I'm 15, and live in the middle of cornfields...a.k.a Iowa. Ugh.. SOMEONE SAFE ME! The only thing that can help me through anything is music. If I ever get mad, I put on my hoobastank cd.. If I'm sad, Beatles come on.. I have a cd for every emotion!! yeah, who else can say that? *lol* anywho....

Well that's been my introduction. Ya'll have a nice day. If ya wanna talk about music, you came to the right place! (ooh..that's good.. that should be our motto!!) just an idea... anywho. Later Days

  Woo so this is my music community... this is basically what it's about: you like music, right? Of course you do! So you probably know about all sorts of way cool bands that everyone should listen to. This is a place where you can share information on all sorts of musical artists so that others can check em out. It doesn't matter what kind of music it is that you listen to, all are welcome. When you post a band, just give a little description of what it sounds like. For example: Little fury bugs is this really cool Death Cab for cutie song. It's kind of toned down and mellow... not exaclty a happy song, but it's still nice. As far as genre of music, I guess it'd be indie-pop-ish. Check it out!

You can also discuss bands/music with people. You know, like...
-Maynard Keenan sounds much better in A Perfect Circle than he does with Tool! Plus the videos are less frightening. -Blasphemy! Tool is TOOL, you can't mess with that... who gives a flyin **** about APC? -I do, you wenis!
Or...
-Well Radiohead's new album was ok, but everyone pretty much had to like it, because it's freakin radiohead. Had another band released a similiar album, it would be seem for what it is: crap.
Whatever your opinion on music is, feel free to share it. Just don't be an arse about it please :-)
