    Atheist-Unquestionable Presence
    Cynic-Focus
    Death-Symbolic (favorite Metal album ever), but really anywhere is good, start with anything up to and past Spiritual Healing to hear the Prog
    Pelican-Australasia
    Wolves In The Throne Room-Two Hunters
    Marillion- possibly Misplaced Childhood, Script for a Jester's Tear is good too
    Xasthur-The Funeral of Being

    HARCORE PUNK

    I really need more than the classics like Bad Brains, Dead Kennedys, Black Flag, and Minor Threat.

    Besides Apostrophe, what would be a good Frank Zappa album to check out in particular?

    Atheist has a solid 3 album discography, if you like them I'd recommend their other two albums as well.

    For Death, Symbolic is the most accessible. Their earlier stuff is death metal (Scream Bloody Gore), and you can try their last album "The Sound of Perseverance", which is less accessible and more of a grower (due to Chuck's black metal-esque vocals), although it has become a favorite of mine.

    Both are awesome (though We're Only In It For The Money will always be my favorite).

    Being a person who jumped on the Harvey Milk bandwagon with their latest release, can anyone recommend me some of their earlier material? I know they've covered a few different territories, so you don't need to give me something that sounds like Life... The Best Game In Town, but just whichever albums are their best.

    my favorite is "special wishes", but be sure to check out "courtesy and good will toward men" as well.

    i love all of their stuff, but those are probably my two favorites with "life..." coming in a close third.

    Looking for all the Bloc Party and Silversun Pickups fans. Lazy Eye being on the main setlist and Melatonin and Well Thought Out Twinkles being Rock Band DLC has gotten me into SP a bit and I would like to know if it would be better to buy Carnavas or Swoon first. For Bloc Party, I've been interested since Helicopter was in GH3 and I've made put Banquet and Hunting For Witches as custom songs for GH2 on my PS2. I'd like some input from you guys on which of their 3 albums to buy first. Thanks for reading this.

    Carnavas is better imo, so I would go for that. For Bloc Party, I think Intimacy is their best, but I would start with Silent Alarm.

    Can I get some good noise and jazz (outside of Miles Davis and John Coltrane) recommendations?

    Edit: Oh yeah, and some indie pop reccs for a huge fan of Belle & Sebastian? I love this thread.

    Eric Dolphy (Out There)
    Hank Jones (Great Standards, Vol. 2)
    Joe Pass (For Django)
    Mostly Other People Do The Killing (Shamokin)
    Norah Jones (Come Away With Me)
    Oscar Peterson Trio (Sits in with the Oscar Peterson Trio)
    Renee Olstead (Renee Olstead)
    Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra (World Famous, Wild Peace, Paradise Blue)

    Some jazzy records I like, half golden-era half modern-era.

    i've been working on a "my favorite of each genre" post forever, so i'm gonna copy/paste some of this out of laziness. :)

    jazz albums: peter brotzmann - machine gun, miles davis - *****es brew, alice coltrane - universal consciousness, sun ra - space is the place, and don cherry - brown rice

    noise/noise-rock albums: prurient - body language, lightning bolt - wonderful rainbow, orthrelm - ov, panicsville - sterile, and wolf eyes - dead hills

    as for stuff similar to belle & sebastian i'd recommend camera obscura, the magnetic fields, and jens lekman.

    Thanks a lot! As you can maybe tell, I'm working on gaining some semblance of knowledge in as many genres as I can.

    Pretty much what he said, but change Swoon and Carnavas. Pikul was a pretty good EP.

    I personally believe Swoon topped Carnavas, it was a great continuation of that style and really had better songs overall, imo. Carnavas still rules.

    I don't have enough money. I have a $100 budget and i'm already using most of it to buy L4D, 2 foo albums, a rise against albums, SOAD s/t, and then one album for each person. What is their best album that I should get?
