I will cop to buying the platter because of a certain someone's participation...but as it turns out, I love love love the whole thing! Great rock/pop songs to sing along to, plus a great range of musical influences. I hear U2, The Who, Kraftwerk, 80s New Wave, and more throughout the whole album!

Thanks for sharing that list, Lanix! I crank it when the kids aren't home (all that uncensored angst 'n' wot not...)

I never really heard much bluegrass 'til I moved "down south" (allllll the way from Cleveland to just over the river from KINtuckEE,) and met a whole bunch of folks who ate, slept, and drank the schtuff. I've developed a very fond affection for the genre. We live a hop/skip/jump from the International Bluegrass Music Museum....yeeeeHAW!

He is my *second* fave drummer (I'll give you only one guess on the first Rolleyes ) and The Police were def an integral part of my teen music discovery years. My older bro' DJ'd at his college radio station and brought home a promo copy of "The Rhythmatist," it's an album I still spin & enjoy immensely. Big Grin
On the way home from the mountains I was jamming to Geroge Clinton and the Parliament Funkadelic's. Nothing better go around corners while listening to Mothership Connection.

I understand - pretty good
Led Zeppelin: the Lemon Song and How Many More Times.
Back in October I sprung for Tsukiko Amano's "Moon Child" disc because the song samples sounded good and the cover looked suitably scary for the pre-Halloween edification of my 'Net station's listeners - and lately I'm finding it difficult to get her tune "Kakan" out of my head.

It was apparently used as a theme song in a computer game called Fatal Frame, but I haven't even had the time to complete the latest Tomb Raider, much less anything from the Anime-horror genre. (Priorities, doncha know. 8^])

Like a lot of non-North-American music it builds slowly - and doesn't lock into its full-tilt groove until after three and a half minutes - but there's a single note in this thing that's like audio catnip to me. I won't try to identify where it is and it only appears three or four times. I'll say only that "you will know it when you hear it, young Skywalker," and that it makes me think of an audio version of a downshifting Ferrari. You'll...know it when you hear it.

The power of melody, done right, cannot be overstated. Or overindulged, IMO.
