  1. this is har jr rocker. I remember when I was a freshman in high school two years ago. I did not know who The Doors, Queen, The Who, Deep Purple, Mahanishvu Orchestra, The Police, ect... Howver, at the end of freshman year I did not have a lot of music, and I thought to myself, I have it all, i was sadly mistaken, I had nothing, there was so much more to listen to. At the begining of junior year, present, I own
  2. I own all of the Dire Straits albums and I have to say this ranks among the worst of their career. Granted it houses a plethora of great songs, Tunnel of Love, Romeo and Juliet, Exsresso Love, it's too 80s for me. In contrast, Direr Straits debut album ranks among one of the finest debut albums of all time. Its impeccable from begining to end. Making Movies is an album for the yuppie blues fan. If you enjoy 80s Dire Straits, check out LOVE OVER GOLD "Telegraph Road" has stellar musicianship and poigant lyricism umatched by their later efforts. Moreover, ALCHEMY live is a graet live album, check that out as well.
  3. Dire Straits. Their self titled debut is one of the best debut albums of alltime.

  5. Works. Vol. 1 is the culmination of Emerson Lake and Palmer. One can sense the despair throughout the whole album This can be adequately summed up in a few short phrases: "This is it" "It's the end of the line" "Give it all you got" "This is thae last time we'll be doing this" You become inured to this mentality while listening to this record. The sentiment expressed above coupled with the flawless performance of Greg Lake, Keith Emerson, and Carl Palmer creates a sense of frustration; you ask yourself, "why did these guys break up?" Overall, an amzing album. A good place to start for ELP newbies. NOTE: This a MY review I posted on Amazon.com You can read this review there and other reviews that I have written there as well.

  6. First off, I love classic rock. I merely thought that Frank Zappa would have a larger fan base considering he recorded over 60 albums and made great music. I believe he is underrated and underappreaciated as a musician and astonished how so many people knoww little of him.
  7. Carl: I hit the JACKPOT. The PERFECT song that matches your description as posted above. "The Adventures of Gregory Peccary"-Frank Zappa Its truly an imaginitive adventure. The whole song is a story, a good story. I'm too good.
  8. The banal perception of progressive rock band, GENESIS, is that Peter Gabriel is exaggeratedly flamboyant and his voice is disturbing. People naturally dismiss this supergroup as with "Invisisble Touch" and "I Can't Dance, granted, they are good songs, they do not define the band Geneis as a whole unit. Well, anybody who doesn't have there head up their ass is acutely aware of the stellar musicianship and poingant lyricism Gabriel brings to the table. WhilE Gabriel was apart of Geneis, he created some of the finest progressive rock of the era. It trulY pains me to see many of my friends who enjoy progressive rock to dismiss them as gay or stupid. Do not make this mistake. LISTEN TO GENESIS.
  9. Guys. Why the disinterest in Frank Zappa? Is he too "weird" for you? Yes, he's a far deparure from your standard Pink Floyd, Blue Oyster Cult bands, but he an amzing guitarist and musical genius. Not ONE reply. This is a disgrace to Frank Zappa. you should be ashamed of yourself. This post, like most that do not appeal to "what's cool" to listen to go unnoticed and underappreciated. Listen to zappa.
  10. Sorry, that might be a little harsh, but I dislike people who judge bands by compilation albums. "Yo Echos is such a great album man." You dont need to have every album, you just need to buy a few albums by the band that aren't compilations. Ideally, albums that fully capture a band's period. For instance, Meddle captures Pink Floyd's progressive period.
  11. It is an experience to listen to one of the greatest raconteurs of the 20th Century. Frank Zappa was assited with his storytelling by The Turtles (Mark Volman and Howard Kaylan). These people are featured on such tracks as "Uncle Meat" "Mud Shark (on backing vocals)," "What kind of Girl Do You Think We Are?" and a few others. You listen to this album to hear a great story, not stellar musicanship. Although Zappa performed "Peaches en Regalia" and "Tears began to fall" as an encore, the storytelling is the main highlight of this terrific live album. Listen to a Great Story Today.
  12. Tweezer-Phish Stormy Monday-The Allman Brothers Band Dark Star (live)-The Grateful Dead Tuesday's Dead-Cat Stevens
  13. Summer 68 IS THE BEST Pink Floyd song, possibly the best of alltime, of their varied and fulfilling music careers. YES, its better than Time, Comfortably Numb, Echoes, The Red Queen, Wish You Were Here, Dogs, and Jugband Blues. WHY? Rick Wright demostrates his tranquil voice and poignant lyricism during this song. These lyrics are unmatched in the following years of Pink Floyd's musical career. IF YOU DO NOT LOVE THIS song, YOU DO NOT truly love Pink Floyd. If you have Dark Side, WYWH, and the Wall. You are not a Pink Floyd fan. You need all the albums to love this band, and Atom Heart Mother in particular.

  14. I have this album and its incredible. Beter thena Atom Heart Mother and more intriguing than More. This album is impeccable from begining to end. Simply amazing.
  15. Progressive Rush, Frank Zappa, and early Police albums pre-Zenyatta Mondatta, and any Traffic album
  16. I have a lot of ELO albums. My favorite has to be El Dorado its about dreams and its good escapism.
  17. Great Classic rock intros: Xanadu-Rush Low Spark of High Heeled Boys-Traffic I Never Dreamed-Lynyrd Skynyrd Whiskeey in the Jar-Thin Lizzy Hotel California-The Eagles Cherub Rock-Smashing Pumkns Those are some of favorite intros
  18. Lets say theres an mp3 on one's computer. Let us say that one copies an mp3 from folder A and pastes the mp3 in folder B. Now the person burns the copy of mp3 in folder B onto a Audio Cd. Does copying a mp3 harm the song quality and do you "lose" something from the partiular tarck? Thanks
