    Im deciding to have a bit of fun and accept requests from friends of albums they want me to listen to and review on Facebook. I figure it will give me a chance to listen to genres I'm usually not exposed to. Got one request so far for a Unicorns album, definitely not stuff I normally listen to. Can't say I'll like it, but it should be a fun adventure nonetheless.
    That's pretty cool. Try to make the bad reviews or reviews of albums you hate funny

    I think highlighting Zappa in red could be funny. Everyone do it, even if you don't know/like Zappa ;)

    Being the fanboy that I am, I am also obliged to highlight John Lennon in red.
    For those of you who have known me long enough you know what I will highlight in red ;)

    Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, Keith Emerson

    Maybe I should start posting The Dead Brothers and Voodoo Rhythm Records in red, because I've mentioned them in about half my posts since discovering them. Of course probably no one's noticed because of how little I post.

    Bjork's Modern Things is clearly about Transformers, amirite?

    Random Opinion:
    Mike Oldfield is a musical genius ;)

    Surprised there are not request threads for his music

    Just to go along with the Zappa discussion: I've heard like, 1 or 2 albums if that counts for anything, but I doubt I could pick them out by name.

    It would be so awesome to have that song in a game, let alone other songs by Crimson. I'd rather have it in Rock Band of course. Knowing GH, they would probably chart the sax solo on guitar...:rolleyes:

    For Zappa depends on the albums

    This does sound like fun.

    Here are a few iconic post-punk (a genre I don't think you've explored before?) albums mixed with a couple of my favorites:

    The Smiths - The Queen is Dead
    The Cure - The Head on The Door and Disintegration
    Joy Division - Substance (Out of all the albums I listed, I think you'd probably enjoy this one the most since a lot of the songs are steeped heavily in the punk tradition)
    Bauhaus - In The Flat Field
    Love & Rockets - Express (I think you'd like the more psychedelic approach of L&R quite a bit, too)
    Devo - Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo
    The Jesus & Mary Chain - Psychocandy
    New Order - Movement and Power, Corruption & Lies
    Roxy Music - Roxy Music, Siren, and For Your Pleasure
    Talking Heads - Their entire discography. The Heads might be one of the most consistent rock bands ever.
    Sparks - Angst In My Pants
    David Bowie - Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps)
    Suicide - Suicide
    Siouxsie & The Banshees - Tinderbox
    Oingo Boingo - Only A Lad
    Depeche Mode - Black Celebration

    Actually, one of my friends did bring up that Smiths album, haha. And I know Talking Heads, Jesus & Mary Chain, David Bowie, Devo and Roxy Music of course, though I'll have to check out the rest eventually.

    Thanks, though. I do need to delve a bit into post punk, among other genres.

    I think their vocals fit fine the way they've used them. Clean fits better on Crack The Skye, dirty sounds better on others.

    Did not see this until it was quoted, but yeah.

    I suggest "Distorted Lullabies" by Ours.

    I can't really keep up with reviewing so many albums, but I'll have to check it out, haha. Doing my friends' first, got three or four lined up and tackling one a day.

    Eh, get around to it whenever you can =p It's just my personal mission to introduce as many as possible to the band.

    Gowie actually likes them, which surprised me.

    Also, I'm not the biggest post-punk fan, but I'm also very unexposed. Although I do respect what I've heard by Joy Division.

    The red is just highlighting a word, which I guess came from the fact that Schiz searched for the topic.

    We are the new chosen people :p
    yes, we are, now we need to build a temple in his honor

    O ok. I just looked at your "Rocker Profile" (Hungryfreak), and you do kinda look like Zappa :eek:

    Btw, a good bassist would be Mike Rutherford. He can play the guitar and bass at the same time! Or maybe Tony Levin. He's *really* good, and he played with two gods or forces of nature or w/e (Fripp in King Crimson and Bozzio); and toured with Anderson, Bruford, Wakeman, and Howe
    while both are good, neither are great enough to be a God or a Force

    its just because you are awesome enough to be a poor man's Jewish Zappa
