  1. Obscured By Clouds is one of their greatest works and IMO, one of their most underrated albums. People always talk about Dark Side or WYWH or Animals or The Wall, and three of those four albums are indeed legendary, but OBC is just as good and stands up just as well. "Burning Bridges" is in my all-time Top 5 Pink Floyd songs list. It's that good.
  2. You know, I started this thread almost 12 years ago now, and it's still going strong, some 1200 pages later. I guess I should make my first post in almost 4 years a doozy, so here we go — Come Away With Me — Norah Jones
  3. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8gO_lxThc1M https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dg_TvF82b0g
  4. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UUhjfo4-SvI&hd=1 This is the best version of the song ever recorded, hands down. It's so sublime, so lush.....I'd probably run out of adjectives before I felt I'd described it properly.
  5. I've never liked the word sloppy unless the word "joe" immediately followed it. Page wasn't sloppy, and to say that he was is to somehow imply that he was willfully lax in his playing or otherwise chose to play like sh!t, and that just seems like a stupid thing to say.
  6. She Talks to Angels — The Black Crowes
  7. Nothing at the moment, but for dinner later, it'll be chicken kiev and brown rice. The brown rice is because chicken kiev isn't the healthiest thing out there, what with all the butter that's in the middle. I haven't had one in years, so I'm looking forward to it.
  8. My dad was going through his record collection the other day and found a copy of Are You Experienced, still in shrink wrap. Just the side had been removed to get the sleeve out, but otherwise, it was just like it was in the record store when he bought it. We put it on his turntable, and let me tell you....Purple Haze sounds really, REALLY good coming out of two huge cabinet speakers.
  9. Any solo in Since I've Been Loving You. BBC Sessions and HTWWW are my faves at the moment. It never fails to make chillbumps erupt on my skin.
  10. Yardwork. The front garden needs weeding, the backyard needs mowing, not to mention edging, and on top of that, I need to prune all the dead branches in our massive willow tree. Sounds like soooooooooo much fun, yeah?
  11. This weather is pissing me off. We can't turn the AC on until we have the units serviced, so while it's plenty nice at night when the temperature finally drops, during the day, the upstairs feels like a sauna. It's too damn early for this shit.
  12. No, he's not, and neither is the man in my signature, much as I love his work as well. Jimi Hendrix, Duane Allman, BB King, and Joe Walsh I'd put ahead of Page, Gilmour, and Clapton. They're all great guitarists to be sure, and they all created transcendent works, but Jimmy Page is not the greatest guitarist ever, IMO.
  13. You'd guess incorrectly. I just found it kind of silly that you got all worked up over a song. I don't like Stairway To Heaven, but if it were some other song of theirs I loved, like Tea For One, that was accused of having been plagiarized from someone else's song, I'd be annoyed, but my level of emotional involvement would stop there. Obviously, you're a lot different, and that's cool. The world would suck if everyone were exactly the same.
  14. Hmm. Do I want to do this? What the hell, I already know I'm an ugly lump, what do I have to lose?
