It's time to save this thread from itself!

The Sundays - Reading, Writing and Arithmetic
Mazzy Star - Among My Swan.
The Flaming Lips - The Soft Bulletin.


All perfect from start to finish.

Which is the Mazzy album with "Wasted"? Now there is a track that is an aural definition of its title!

The death of Mick Karn reminded me that Japan's Tin Drum ain't got nuffink dodgy on it.
There's no vibrations, but wait.

There must be a Talking Heads album that fits this topic, but I cant be assed now to have a look  :-\
I would add Never mind the Bollocks - Sex Pistols to the list  :)

So Tonight That I Might See.

I do love the wooziness of "Wasted".

So I may as well suggest "She Hangs Brightly" as Mazzy Star's more rocky album (up to about 10 BPM at times too) to this mix and raise the bar by adding the rather obvious "Highway 61 Revisited" and "Is a Woman" by Lambchop

Not sure about TH - Little creatures, perhaps?  But Rei Momo by Byrne is astonishing.

Unless you count David Sylvian's hairdo on the cover, that is  ;)
Some of Mick's solo work (ie. not Dali's Car or the Rain Tree Crow project) is pretty damned amazing. Or demoralising if you happen to be a bass guitarist ...

Short and Sweet Motorhead's 'No Sleep til Hammersmith' is faultless.

At t'other end of the sonic spectrum I'll offer these:

  • Ozric Tentacles - Erpland and Strangeitude (Pungent Effulgent is good too)
  • Eat Static - Abduction - before they went totally bats**t crazy with the UFO/alien thing
  • New Order - Technique (ideally the pressing without the remix of World-in-bloody-Motion on it)
  • Wolfram Spyra - Sferics - at the risk of being wilfully obscure. Perfect ambient electronica, a great live act and a thoroughly nice guy too.
  • Klaus Schulze and Pete Namlook - Dark Side Of The Moog Vol.8 - live electronic music done right. Actually one long track split into bits for indexing purposes, but it's a ripper

If we're allowing film soundtracks, then the original soundtrack to "Brassed Off" takes some beating.

A heckler at a Mazzy gig yelled: "Why do you look so miserable?".  "Because I am so miserable", replied Hope Sandoval.

Beautifully miserable indeed.  I hope she's feeling better now though!

Journeying in my time machine, I have found that "The Band" by The Band and "Sailin' Shoes" by Little Feat fit the bill, IIRC

Ah, but Clarkson probably regards No Jacket Required and Into The Light as the height of musical excellence :-\

And you would be quite wrong...
Doobie Brothers, Steely Dan, Moody Blues and, er, 7 Year Bitch.
Can't Buy A Thrill.  Simply awesome.
I would love to agree with Rumours, but Oh Daddy is a bit pants.  And I don't really like Dreams either.

Albums that I never skip a track

Sugar - Copper Blue (best guitar based album of the 90s)
Jean-Michel Jarre - Oxygene and Equinoxe
Iron Maiden - Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son
dEUS - Worst Case Scenario

Double Album

Husker Du (can't do the umlauts) - Zen Arcade

In answer to a question from further up the thread; Iron Maiden's Live After Death was released on Vinyl ('cos I used to 'ave it) The DVD of those gigs is rather good as well.

The new Bon Iver album doesn't have a duff note on it from beginning to end.
