  1. The Who are a great band. I, however, have become burned out on them. I still really, really, really admire them but I never listen to them anymore. That saying, I don't really like Tommy anymore. And I've never liked Sell Out. Damn, that album has really collected dust. I'm more of a Who's Next/Quadrophenia kind of guy anyway, with the latter being my favorite of theirs. "Love, Reign O'er Me" is a brilllllllliant closing track. Goosebumps.
  2. Foo Fighters are okay. I'm not too keen on their current stuff, but "Everlong" is one of the best songs of the 90s.
  3. JUST now? It just goes to show where the modern country's priorities are... and it's sad. Very, very sad.
  4. I don't own any boxsets right now, but I'm really, really tempted to get this as my first: Woody Guthrie - The Asch Recordings Vol. 1-4
  5. Yeah, I like it so far. Haven't finished it yet, but the first half seems pretty good. Thanks for the recommendations. I got this album because I figured I needed to get some actually good hip-hop into my collection.
  6. I went through a HUGE Pink Floyd, and I mean MASSIVE Floyd phase several years ago. Granted, I'm pretty damn burned out on them, but I still respect them a lot. Darkside is a masterpiece, obviously. I like Animals a lot too. I like Floyd before The Wall, or before Roger Waters' ego consumed the band as a whole and practically made the band a laughing stock.
  7. The Cars were truly a great band. They were pop, yet cool enough for all crowds to like really. I would get their debut, but it reads off as a greatest hits album. And that's the problem, since I could wait five minutes to hear one of the songs on the radio. Still a great band though.
  8. I just put The Dirty South on my wishlist. Giving this band a shot.
  9. Shit, are you serious about The Replacements box set? I'm still behind on finishing up their Let It Bepost-Pleased To Meet Me albums. I literally own no box sets, but there's three this year alone that are of high priority to me. I just hope the Adams box set is only unreleased stuff. I just rounded out his solo stuff a couple weeks ago and don't really feel like buying a bunch of stuff I already have. Pricey year it looks like.
  10. Lately, I've been diggin' these: I guess I like my rock dirrrrrrrrty as of late.
  11. Okay, I take back most of my former comment. I guess it took Sticky Fingers to make me realize, but the Stones, they fucking RULE. This is like the perfect album. Methinks I'll have a little buying spree soon. Need to hit up some Let It Bleed, Beggars Banquet, and perhaps some Goats Head Soup.
  12. Of course people will recommend their live shows, but I REALLY, REALLY recommend American Beauty:
  13. I figured it was about time to begin to acquaint myself with the Stones' actual albums.
  14. Nice portion of Neko Case you got there. I only have Fox Confessor Brings The Floood but I dig it decently enough. I really, really like her work with the New Pornographers on Twin Cinema, but it's VERY different from her solo output. It's a heavy dosage of powerpop, and I can see how it wouldn't be for everyone. It's coated with lots of pop hooks and melodies, which some may find grating in large doses. But I dig it. A lot. I recommend it. Just be prepared for something different.
  15. Thanks, I'll check it out. And yeah, I discovered Gillian and David Rawlings through Heartbreaker, and then heard her some more from the O Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack. They seem to have musical chemistry like very few I've ever heard.
  16. Um, Neil Young is the shit, basically. I only own After The Goldrush and On The Beach (my current favorite) and I absolutely adore them. I need more of the catalog, pronto. "Helpless", although from his CSNY days, which I'm typically not a big fan of, is one of my favorite songs ever; not just but Neil.
