I've given Atoms for Peace a shot. It's good if you like the electronica turn that Thom has been on since he discovered technology. It sounds quite a bit like his solo album. Flea does a great job of adapting his style to fit this which is pretty cool. But I don't think it's all that great or anything that will appeal too strongly to folks that aren't predisposed to it.

Hell yeah, start this thread right!

I too am listening to Genesis, but not Gabriel era; I'm listening to Duke. This is because I watched American Psycho the other day. For the same reason I'm also listening to Sports by Huey Lewis and the News.

ETA: really Dancing With The Moonlit Knight might just be the greatest song ever written.

Well, then you should be listening to Invisible Touch too. /smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

I did. All day yesterday. You know I love the Invisible Touch.

I believe I'll be listening to a lot of Genesis in the near future.

Gee-zus H. Murphy. You guys are just too young to be living in the past. I mean, my copies are original LPs. /tongue.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':P' />

Listening to Dallas Green and his band City and Colour right now. Their new cd The Hurry and the Harm is just captivating me.

Thirst.

Listening to Philip Glass' Tirol Concerto. If you have a spare 15 minutes and even a passing interest in dramatic, orchestral music...I can't recommend this enough.

Rome - Swords To Rust, Hearts To Dust


Woah, thanks for that. Stunning track. Particularly love the operatic female backing vocals/descant.

Who the hell is that? Great song!

I just realized I'm behind on Voltaire CDs. Riding a Black Unicorn...

I love his stuff...so darkly funny. Snakes, When You're Evil, and The Man Upstairs are some of my favorites.

Tough to pick one track from a great prog metal concept album. I suppose the opener is a good place to ah...start. /smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

Beyond the Bridge - The Call

I was pleasantly surprised by that album. Usually prog metal debuts go all out on the cheese factor, but Beyond The Bridge had a respectable level of cheddar, enough to be tasty but not too much that you're all blocked up for a week. I should probably give that another listen sometime again.

What I'm listening to now:
Sigur Ros - Kveikur

New album is pretty fucking cool. Has a heavy rock and industrial vibe which is a nice change. I liked Valtari but there's no doubt that most of it was kinda samey at times. Perfect for playing in the background while you do something else, but Kveikur demands your attention.

I've given it about 50 listens and it never gets old; freakin' love that album. Cool guys, too. I ordered a T-shirt from their store, it apparently got lost in the mail at some point between Germany and here and they sent me a replacement for free.

Good song. Never been a big fan of theirs, but the new album is getting such universal acclaim it's hard to ignore.
