I'm in! Any excuse for making a list is a good excusefedaia said:and being ready with the cq team, i'm thinking of making a '33 best albums' list..
might be a stupid idea, because i don't like to categorize music, but it doesn't necessarily have to be
'the best of all times in this particular order', just a few all time great albums.
anyone interested to do that, too?
That was my style too back then. But I still listen to some of them now. But I didn't care to listen to the new Nightwish albums after Tarja left the group.Kvinto said:
Well, if i post them, i probably come back to music like this time after time but there are also huge differences in musical taste between a 15-17 years old teenager and when you're almost 26. Back than it was cool, now i prefer other music but listen to this every now and then.nobilis said:That was my style too back then. But I still listen to some of them now.

I used to listen to the gathering too, among others like epica, sirenia, within temptation, lacuna coil and some underground bands (penumbra, dying tears). The latter, they have a cello in the line-up, which is one of my favorite instruments because of the melancholy it connotates.Libertine Seguros said:I'm obviously a similar age, since ten years ago I also liked the female fronted doom/goth stuff (and was in the process of developing my taste for the 80s early goth, and then moved onto the post-punk that has shaped much of my taste since).
I never really liked Nightwish, but I absolutely loved these guys and girls:
Unlike most of their brethren, they had no problem slowing the pace and not being heavy at all, and some of the later albums are still good now:
Ultimately, however, they were not a very good band before Anneke van Gisbergen showed up, and they weren't a very good band after she left either. But in the middle?
i had a similar evolution, i still listen to some power/speed metal and also some numetal. The paradox is that i used to listen to classical music before the gothic/doom period.Kvinto said:OK, among those i can easily remember (from that period, of course): Lake of Tears, Guano Apes, Apocalyptica, a bit later Lacuna Coil and Within Temptation... there was a lot of bands i can remember only by some certain song. i remember i got some Doro Perch record, and was pretty impressed by it, several years after that i recognized that "Breaking the Law" is a Judas Priest song But i have never been into punk, my musical evolution was sympho/gothic/doom/nu metal --> power/heavy/speed metal --> grunge/hard/classic/blues/prog/southern rock, some kinds of world music etc
it's not a paradox. before the gothic/doom period i used to listen about 5% of music that i do listen now. the period of admiration of some music doesn't mean there was no music before. as for classic music i remember i had two CDs "Classic for Love" or so in the 90th (but probably the most memorable thing about it was a naked woman on the cover of both these CDs )nobilis said:i had a similar evolution, i still listen to some power/speed metal and also some numetal.

aah, the good boring thingsRight now I'm just shuffling through my collection and this one's playing at the moment:
Chris Robinson - Sunday Sound
Back in my early teens I was a huge Black Crowes fan, but I kind of lost interest in them around the millenium. I do enjoy to listen to them from time to time, though, and Chris Robinson's solo album 'New Earth Mud' is quite alright, although nothing spectacular.
High five. That was a hell of a tune. That progression, that breakdown - instant classic.Cobblestoned said:Energy 52 - Cafe Del Mar
Out of 100 techno tracks, I hate 99 of them. But not this.
Good comment "2:10 ... it just smacks you in the face"
All this remixing is not good + youtube confusionLibertine Seguros said:High five. That was a hell of a tune. That progression, that breakdown - instant classic.
Only the Three 'n' One mix though. Many tried to improve on it, which was utterly futile.
Stop. Short offtopic.Stingray34 said:I really enjoyed my stay in Frankfurt a few years ago. Nice place and people. Had a really bad pizza, though the chips were good. And Goethe was from there.
I'm astounded there's a NoMeansNo band. BTW, did your son like the Yes or the No pill better? Could be signs of things to come .TexPat said:
Have not heard them. Exile and Staring at the sun were nice, but at the risk of sounding blasphemous, they should leave the Beatles junk in the trunk.Michielveedeebee said:
