LegendofRock3021;2299606 said: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.

cdestey;2325817 said:Did he forget Tool or something?
ROCKBANDFANATIC7526;2325838 said:Yea, I know Its generic but, to tell the truth, I don't know any of the real "deep" stuff
timmay9;2327094 said:First off, Nuggets: Original Artyfacts from the First Psychedelic Era, 19651968 is essential to any person's music collection. It might be the best compilation ever.Some great psychedelic stuff that I know of:ClassicThe 13th Floor Elevators Psychedelic Sounds ofBig Brother & the Holding Company Cheap ThrillsBlue Cheer Vincebus EruptumBrian Wilson SMiLECaravan In the Land of the Grey and PinkFrank Zappa & the Mothers of Invention Freak Out!Grateful Dead Live/DeadIron Butterfly In-A-Gadda-Da-VidaLeaf Hound Growers of MushroomLove Forever Changes or Da CapoThe Moody Blues Days of the Future PastPink Floyd Piper at the Gates of DawnQuicksilver Messenger Service Self-titled or Happy TrailsThe Zombies Odessey and OracleAlso look into Stoner rock (Kyuss, etc.), Krautrock (bands such as Neu! and Kraftwerk), the Canterbury scene (Soft Machine), shoegaze (My Bloody Valentine, Ride). Also look into Elephant 6 artists, many of whom play awesome psychedelic pop.If Gowie was here, he'd recommend the Sounds of Animals Fighting as well, and they are a little harder to approach but awesome nonetheless.
Ultimatum;2326985 said:What's some relatively obscure Post-Rock?
timmay9;2327197 said:Eh, that one album probably defines psychedelic music, and even Pink Floyd, for me.
ROCKBANDFANATIC7526;2327251 said:67 has to be the greatest year for psychedelic rock, am I right?
timmay9;2327296 said:67? I don't think you can pin it on a single year. But it was definitely a good year for it.
timmay9;2328683 said:You might say you don't like death metal, but check out Atheist, especially Unquestionable Presence.
macamatic;2328677 said:Lately I've been loving melodic metalcore and melodeath. What I'm looking for is something melodic with technical riffs (not necessarily Cryptopsy technical, just not four notes over and over). Good solos are a plus. A sampling of the kind of stuff I dig:All That RemainsAs I Lay DyingAugust Burns RedBleeding ThroughChildren of BodomDark TranquillityDarkest HourThe Devil Wears PradaHaste The DayIn FlamesInhale ExhaleSoilworkSonic SyndicateI'm well aware that most of this is pretty close to mainstream (or even in it). Before you ask, I am a fan of clean vocals used well (for instance, Atreyu is a definite no), same with keyboards. I'm not really into death metal, black metal, grindcore, deathcore, or anything significantly heavier than the stuff on my list. Perhaps some day I'll be able to swallow something like Deicide or Mayhem, but not today. Also, production is of reasonable importance to me, as it's my biggest issue with most of that stuff.
Mystlyfe77;2327578 said:What's some good alternative hip-hop? Stuff similar to Deltron 3030, Handsome Boy Modelling School, Danger Mouse, Madvillain, Edan, etc.Preferably not just another project by any of the individuals involved with those (MF Doom, Del, Dan the Automator, etc.) but something by someone else.
macamatic;2328975 said:Well, when I discovered In Flames and Dark Tranquillity, one of the first things I did was check out At The Gates...and something about it didn't feel right. I think I wasn't quite as into high screams at the time. I'm willing to give them another shot, though. Given the lineup of The Haunted I'm guessing it's pretty similar. God Forbid I gave a few listens earlier today actually, and it's pretty...well, awesome. Arch Enemy has a similar story with me to ATG.That said, I'll check out every (unique) band on your list. Thanks!

TheKT;2309044 said:Where's the best place to start with Swervedriver?
Alright_Computer;2330751 said:I know this was 5 days ago, but dammit, I'll answer anyway.The best Swervedriver record to start (and their best record overall in my opinion) is Mezcal Head. It's fully streamable on last.fm, so you can check it out there.
macamatic;2331739 said:Wow (at the post).I checked out some ATG last night, and was pretty impressed with Slaughter of the Soul. I distinctly remember not being into WFIKTBD way back when, and apparently I'm still not. I'll probably get SOTS and maybe TSD. Still need to look into some of those other bands. I really appreciate it, I know it's hard for a purist to give recommendations to a metalcore fan (I guess the melodeath made it a little easier though).
Mystlyfe77;2333085 said:(so is very early In Flames and Dark Tranquillity for that matter)
MdrnDayWarrior;2341330 said:Anyone here into Post-Rock? I am looking for some drum heavy, instrumental post-rock, like GY!BE and their side projects.
afterstasis;2341352 said:do make say think, tortoise, dirty three (depends on your definition of "heavy"), dianogah, jakob, and from monument to masses.
