|Another Pointless List; Jon Foreman This Time...|
I just downloaded all four of Jon Foreman's EP's. The set quite surprisingly blew away my semi-high expectations. With that, here's a list of all of the Folk-ish/Acoustic/Bluegrass/Country/Soft Rock/Jeff Buckley albums I own, and then a few that I want. Enjoy.
I'm going to grab that new Fair album as soon as I can.

Bringing It All Back Home
"It's okay, Ma...I'm only bleeding" *Ba-dung-do-DA-badun-do, badun-do, badun-do...*
For Emma, Forever Ago
Because if you're on Spuntnik and you like Folk, this is required listening
The Story of My Life
Country singer famous for her rendition of "Strawberry Wine." This c.d. is the only modern country album I own.
Please Come Home
Because I'm a huge fan of Thrice
|9||Good Old War|
Only Way To Be Alone
Because I'm a huge fan of Days Away
Cold As The Clay
Because I'm a huge fan of Bad Religion
|11||Iron and Wine|
Around The Well
LOVE the title track
One of the top 5 albums of 2009 for me
At Folsom Prison
At San Quentin
Fall and Winter
The inspiration for the list. There's been so much snow falling lately; nothing is more comfortable than just sitting in a comfortable chair with a book and this type of music on as the world turns white just a few inches of wall away.
Spring and Summer
Just as awesome as Fall and Winter. I don't think I have a favorite EP out of the four (considering that I just got them today). By the way...I think everyone ought to check these out. Jon Foreman's voice lends itself ridiculously well to the type of music he creates here.
|18||Neutral Milk Hotel|
In The Aeroplane Over The Sea
I've been getting into this a lot over the past few months. I don't see how people call it boring; it's some of the most upbeat and interesting acoustic music I've ever heard.
The first Folk-ish album I ever fell in love with (more Bluegrass, but no one cares).
Why Should The Fire Die?
|21||Simon and Garfunkel|
"Fakin' It" was written about me, I promise...
|22||Simon and Garfunkel|
Bridge Over Troubled Water
From A Basement On The Hill
These last three albums are ones that I don't have yet, but will get soon. I've heard "Pretty (Ugly Before)" off of this one, and it's really damn cool, so this'll probably be the Elliott Smith album I get first.
Would this be good for a start?
Until When We Are Ghosts
My roommate loves William Fitzsimmons, and has a couple of his albums, so I'll probably grab them from him sometime soon.
