|Also, I already tried rush and it's not it either, sonic.|
|I'll set you up on a date with mezzanine. She's a freaky one.|
|Outkast - Aquemini|
|@drsmith: thanks man, but actually I find Mezzanine rather boring. And always have.|
|Cult of Luna - Salvation|
|Swarms, Submotion Orchestra & Zomby are all you need|
|The Angelic Process- Weighing Souls With Sand.|
|ah damn that Submotion Orchestra album was gonna be my next rec|
was trying to space em out
|I'd like to help you, but I've kind of fallen into the same funk. I still listen to what I have and what people rec me, but I seem to have lost a lot of the drive to seek it out myself. :/|
Lately, I've been digging Deep Mountains' self-titled and Black Twilight Circle's Odour of Dust and Rot (my boyfriend wouldn't stop playing this, so it's good I like it so much, hah), so maybe check those out, if you want black metal in the summer, haha.
|whew, was worried this list was going to be about a girl.|
Titus Andronicus - The Monitor
most epic album that I've ever actually liked, and arguably my favorite record of all time.
|Then my comment applies to you as well Vesper (you have some electronic in your pie chart I see)|
|Rodrigo if these don't do it then I think you're lost forever|
Nick Drake - Pink Moon
Guthrie Govan - Erotic Cakes
Rainbow - Rising
Miles Davis - Kind of Blue
Prince - Purple Rain
Botch - We Are The Romans
Jethro Tull - Aqualung
Weezer - The Blue Album
The Ocean - Precambrian
Camel - Mirage
dEUS - The Ideal Crash
BT - Ima
My Bloody Valentine - Loveless
These are all albums that have changed my life and my perception of music in general... I hope there are a few you haven't heard yet...
|Oof, our musical tastes are nowhere near the same:
Ben Folds Five - Whatever and Ever Amen,
Counting Crows - August and Everything After,
Jack Johnson - Brushfire Fairytales,
Matisyahu - Live at Stubbs,
Ray Lamontagne - Trouble,
Ben Harper - Burn to Shine,
Jamiroquai - The Return Of The Space Cowboy,
The Animals - The Best of The Animals,
The Shins - Chutes Too Narrow,
The Moody Blues - Every Good Boy Deserves Favour|
|I was beginning to worry you didn't know about the "enter" key, veigh.|
Thanks, I'll get on those. Though I already have the latest Zomby and it was good but nothing to cream about. I have the latest Submotion Orchestra but I still have to listen to it... part of me not caring that much about music anymore is having about 10 albums in my to-listen-to queue for some months now.
@Vesper: Thanks bro. And I'm a sucker for BM all year long so it's a good idea. Listen to Dev, if he's not drunk he can probably help you out as well.
@Tyr: Got some of those but since I don't wanna be lost forever I'll get the rest. Thanks mate.
|Falling in love again |
Never wanted to
What am I to do?
Can't help it
|if you're looking for some good black metal from this year check out Blut Aus Nord's newest|
|Yeah, if you haven't heard any BTC stuff yet, it's pretty weird black metal, so it's interesting, at least.|
I'll listen to Dev; even if he's drunk, his electronic recs are still better than those of most people I know, lol.
Swarms' Old Raves End was great, though - I recced it to my religion professor before I graduated, as she's the one who got me onto Burial, haha.
|you're being an enabler bro|
|Baph dude you should learn how to rock hard that will expand your horizons |
|I do this a lot...and oddly enough, this site probably contributed to both the rise and fall of my music listening. What I have to do is find something that is simple, fun, that I can listen to and find enjoyable despite everyone else's opinion on it.|
Or just accept the inevitable, and hope that something ignites your love of music again. Maybe all you need is a change of scenery, you know what I mean? Something that's nowhere in the neighborhood of what you listen to. With that in mind, listen to:
The Angelic Process - 'Weighing Souls With Sand' (something like this is very out-of-character for me personally, but I absolutely love it. Maybe it'll work for you)
Bob Dylan - 'Bringing It All Back Home' (something classic, very laid-back and both simple and complex at the same time)
Cocteau Twins - 'Heaven or Las Vegas' (dense-but-light-hearted-but-heavy-layered, beautiful music)
Johnny Cash - 'At Folsom Prison' (down-to-earth, nothing complicated at all but VERY enjoyable)
Ride - 'Nowhere' (just a catchy record)
Zero 7 - 'Simple Things' (very cool, very chill trip-hop)
|A similar thing has happened to me lately. Cutting down on downloading random albums just because I had the time to do so has helped me appreciate listening to albums I really enjoy. I picked one band and listened to them for a month and I feel much better. |
|You haven't rated any mars volta that I can see... have you checked them out?|
|Dude, I haven't hardly listened to any music going on a year now. This happens to me from time to time, but never for this long of a stretch.|
|^a year seems pretty excesive... did you go deaf or something?|
@Eonblue: I listened to Frances the mute a long time ago and it didn't do anything for me. Maybe I'll give them another chance. Also, come december 21st 2012, I hope it's eon and blue as well.
@Edwin: Thing is, I never randomly dnld almbums. When I download something is cause I've done my homework and it SEEMS like something I'd like. Thanks though.
@Masochist: That seems fair enough. I'll get albums that aren't REALLY impossible for me to enjoy. I don't know how much of a good idea going out of character is... then again I mostly listen to metal, electronica, indie and pop sung by hot british chicks. So it might work like a charm.
@Hans: And you need rogaine. Get it? Cause you're old!
j/k, I love you. I can enjoy old school rock every now and then but it gets old quick and I start itching for something heavier. Unless it's AC/DC. Then i just want to murder a puppy.
