  1. Anyone here ever go to amateur reviewer George Starostin's website? I think he writes some of the best reviews on albums I've read. Although I don't always agree with him (how boring would that be?), he almost always has some unique insight about an artist that I don't initially hear with my own ears. That, and a lot of times he sums up perfectly how I feel about a particular album or artist. Just thought I'd see if anyone here knows about his site and what they think of his reviews. It's fun and interesting reading material, IMO. Thanks. Oh yeah, and I forgot to mention his rating s
  2. The best song I've heard all year is "To Be Loved" by Ian Moore.
  3. No lyrics, but the music from this song gets to me every time .... http://youtube.com/watch?v=BwXlzy9k7jI
  4. Two drumming LEGENDS dueling.
  5. I'd love to put Lou Reed and John Lydon (Johnny Rotten) in a room together and just let them have at it. Should be an entertaining spectacle.
  6. *WARNING* The following post contains foul language and may taint the image you have of some of your favorite musicians. You have been warned. Sinatra on Elvis and Rock & Roll, 1957 - "It is sung, played and written for the most part by cretinous goons; and by means of its almost imbecilic reiterations and sly, lewd - in plain fact, dirty - lyrics it manages to be the martial music of every sideburned delinquent on the face of the Earth. His kind of music is deplorable, a rancid smelling aphrodisiac . . . it fosters almost totally negative and destructive reactions in young pe
  7. "Madman drummers bummers and Indians in the summer with a teenage diplomat" --The Boss
  8. At the moment... "Nowhere Man" - The Beatles
  9. Evolution of Song! A fun, funny cover of Bohemian Rhapsody. I like the Dennis DeYoung impression!
  10. Here's a few I think are pretty weird: Foo Fighters - Everlong Soundgarden - Black Hole Sun Radiohead - Paranoid Android Primus - Wynonn'a Big Brown Beaver
  11. Many of you may already be rock snobs without realizing it. Here's Alan Cross to sort it out for you other people: How To Talk Like a Rock Snob 1 How To Talk Like a Rock Snob 2 How To Talk Like a Rock Snob 3 How To Talk Like a Rock Snob 4 Now some lessons: How to Fake It How to Fake It: Part Two
  12. Combat Rock? No. Chronic Town is an EP. Where's Born to Run?
  13. Endtroducing... is a great album. Unfortunately, his albums have progressively declined in quality. His new one, The Outsider, is okay, but it doesn't measure up to his debut. Like many albums coming out these days, there is no cohesiveness with it. I got the same feeling with the Chili Peppers' Stadium Arcadium. With Internet downloading of music on the rise, I feel this is going to be an inevitable trend. The idea of the concept album will become obsolete soon enough.
  14. Good list! I especially like seeing Ice T and the Geto Boys on there. Two of my favorites from the '90s.
  15. Of course. Different strokes for different folks ... as long as we pursue mutual concern, understanding, and empathy for others' tastes in music.
  16. Speaking of Eminem, here's a great interview with him and Weird Al: Funny Eminem Interview
  17. Sorry about that. I didn't much cared for Eminem from the start, too, but he's earned some well-deserved respect in the business. A lot of rap lyrics can be brash to say the least, but that's the kind of lifestyle these artists are born into. I think it's great they can vent these emotions in the form of music and inspire others to do the same. As much experience, emotion, insight and dedication goes into their albums as our favorite classics. Just like any new sensation, it's difficult for one to train their ear to something they haven't heard, and probably never experienced, their e
  18. I like Run-D.M.C., but their style and rhymes aren't aging as well as some of the older second-wave rap artists I listed. I would never deny their influence, though.
  19. Those are first-wave rappers. All great in their own right, but much less mainstream and accessible by today's standards.
  20. I understand how you can make that statement when you're ignorant of these great artists. Give them a try, and expand your horizons.
