New Songs/Albums/Artists You Are Getting Into

By new, I don't mean they have to be new artists in terms of coming out recently, but new to your listening pleasure.

Ever since you guys talked about Muse, I just had to listen to them.
I started off by downloading Hysteria and New Born because DDD listed them as their two best songs. I really love Hysteria and I almost equally like New Born. You can definitely hear the Radiohead-influence (especially in Matt Bellamy's voice), but they certainly have their own style and I really like his guitarwork.

I then downloaded their new album Black Holes and Revelations because it had the best rating on AMG and you guys raved about it. After just one listen I know I like it, but I will certainly have to listen some more to get a better feeling about it.

Other songs I have gotten into:

Led Zeppelin - In the Light - the synthesizers are friggin awesome! I like the whole atmosphere of this song. It is quickly rising up my list of favorite Led Zeppelin songs.

Radiohead - Fake Plastic Trees and Pyramid Song - Well I have known about these a little longer than recently, but both of them are played at least twice a day by me because they are so incredible. Both are certainly in my top 10 Radiohead songs and they are threating to both be in the top 5 very soon (FPT already is at 5 actually)

Bob Dylan - Jokerman and Lay Lady Lay - I love Dylan's singing in both of these songs and I really like the structure and background music of these songs. Hurricane has grown on me a lot too!

Oasis - Morning Glory - I think its opening is one of the best in song history. I crank it so loud it makes my head hurt

Re: New Songs/Albums/Artists You Are Getting Into

Well I've been getting into Nirvana again after turning my back on them for a while. The song Milk It in particular, I now think it's one of their greatest achievements. And In Utero in general. I've always liked the album but I never used to see it as 'the definitive musical statement of Nirvana' as many fans do... I'd usually argue for With The Lights Out or Bleach being their best material, but now I feel that In Utero probably is their definitive album. Or at least it's my favorite for the time being.

The Meat Puppets... I haven't been particularly receptive towards their studio albums but I was listening to a live one on Napster and I really digged it. It had this slick, hard-rockin', thoughtful style that was killer.

Buffalo Springfield - I Am A Child. I had always felt that the original/Springfield version of I Am A Child paled in comparison with Neil's live solo versions, but lately I've come to terms with the style and come to like it a lot.

The Beatles - been listening to The White Album a ton.

Re: New Songs/Albums/Artists You Are Getting Into

Lately I'm listening a lot to two albums: Michael Franti & Spearhead's Stay Human and Amy Winehouse's Back to Black.

The first one is a marvellous soul/hip-hop record under the disguise of a radio show; the second, the soul album of 2006.

Michael Franti & SH has become a favorite of mine. Especially the last two releases Everyone Deserves Music and Yell Fire!

This guys moves effortlessly through so many genres, including rock, reggae, hip-hop etc. etc. I'm glad to see someone else enjoying his work.

Be cool...
