I happen to think RTR is his best tour. Apparently he had to yell because he couldn't hear himself during the shows. But the energy and arrangements are fucking spectacular IMO.

As far as not a great singer -- not in the traditional sense, but I dig his voice. It's a shapeshifting thing that always suits his material, whether he's singing a protest song or country crooning or whatever else.

Who gives a fuck if the singing sounds good or bad. At long as it suits the music, or is emotional, then it works. Plus, most of the time they are actually stylized, and when they sing formally they do a fantastic job.

Some highlights for me:

In some cases I agree, but often not. If someone sings emotionally but constantly out of tune in a way it hurts my ears, I can't listen to it. Bob Dylan didn't really hurt my ears yet, but he certainly sang out of tune a LOT during those performances.

The band is not really for me, but Daft Punk broke up. They even did a youtube video announcing it:

Damn. They were definitely “for me”, I’m a big fan. Sad news :( :(

But Bangalter in particular has done plenty of great work on his own, hopefully we’ll get more of that.

Hmm, that's only about their LATER bands which are nowhere nearly as good as the old ones. Ask anybody from former YU about these, nobody could name one.

Like anywhere else, it's EARLY stuff that matters - for example The Buldogs, who were a bunch of 15-year-olds when they rocked :party:

I'm nearing the end of two major album-exploration projects I've been working on over the last year or so. Since September-ish, I've been doing the 'random genre Pokemon' thing every day (I missed one day) and I've got about 25 genres left so will be done in less than a month: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1vgn ... sp=sharing. I'll probably do another round as it's been kind of fun and I look forward to the surprise every day. I'm not sure if I'll keep doing it with Pokemon or just randomize the types, because some types clearly have more Pokemon so now I'm just stuck with a few 'types' and I have to randomize it quite a few times to get one I haven't finished.

I've also been using this as a guide to help me listen to one album from every country (regardless if I'd heard something from that country before). I haven't been doing each region, but I've been going through it sort of alphabetically. I just have five countries from South America left. I will probably focus on regions next time so I get a few more for each country. Some countries have nothing--or only a small handful--available so it has been tough for some of them and I guess I'll have to skip a few.

After finishing 'the world', I'm going around Australia and doing an album for each 'region'. It seems kind of random though because, for example, Perth has Fremantle, Leederville and Subiaco listed but they're just suburbs of Perth so really they should just be Perth. Idk.

Yep I loved Late at Night so when I rolled Italo-disco and they came up in the list they seemed like a good bet. Not an amazing album, but still nice. Nothing as good as Late at Night though.

I'm trying to fill some gaps in my knowledge of essential early hardrock and metal albums. I started listening to hardrock and metal in the mid 90's and hardly ever dug into the earlier years. I know and own some usual suspects like all the albums by Metallica, Reign in Blood, Holy Diver, Number of the Beast, Abigail, Operation: Mindcrime and some from the early 90's, but my knowledge of 80's metal and 70's hardrock is pretty limited.

If you would recommend me the essentials, which would you choose?

Maybe these are too obvious even for "instant classics" but I would also rec the first two Motley Crue albums, Thin Lizzy, Stooges and Rainbow for Hard Rock essentials.

Thanks. Of course I already have lots of Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple. Also have some Thin Lizzy. Whitesnake is a big gap indeed, surely need to listen to that. I'll put the others on my list as well.

Started with Black Sabbath the past week. I already had Paranoid on vinyl and a best of on cd, so I new the most famous songs, but I listened to "Black Sabbath", "Heaven and Hell", "Master of Reality", "Sabotage" and "Vol. 4". Pretty cool stuff, especially the slower songs.

Next one in my "discover more classic hardrock and metal": Accept - Balls to the Wall

I can't say I'm enjoying this one. It's all so simplistic. The opening song, titletrack, immediately sets the bar with a very simplistic chorus, which is written with the only purpose to get crowd participation. But I guess I can say this about most of the songs. Most songs sound like they are popsongs but with a rough edge and a bit faster. Listen to Head Over Heels for example. With a slightly different production and better arrangement, this could have been a Bon Jovi song.

I made it halfway. Five tracks was enough of this.

My tag cloud.

Now putting focus more on the 80's. Jesus and Mary Chain, Sonic Youth, Loop, Spacemen 3, Kate Bush, Talk Talk, The Cure, A.R. Kane, Joy Division, New Order, Bauhaus, Echo and the Bunnymen, This Mortal Coil, The Chameleons and Siouxshie and the Banshees is what I want to listen more from.

During dinner with my daughter Make You Feel My Love by Adele popped up on shuffle. My daughter loves that song, well, the version by Adele. I told her I think the version by Jasper Steverlinck (Belgian singer-songwriter) is much better. She replied: "Did he steal it from Adele?"
So then I put on the original by Bob Dylan. My daughter's face turned sour. "That sounds awful! This guy can't sing at all!!" Then I told her this guy is one of the most popular musicians in the world of all time. She didn't believe me. "That's impossible."
:lol:

Don’t know Adele or Steverlinck’s version of the song but your daughter is correct about Dylan :poshclap:

Dylan is I think the second most covered musician that's ever lived. People have made careers singing his songs. Like him or not his popularity and influence are enormous.

No doubt about that. I explained to my daughter he is not loved for his beautiful voice, but mostly for his songwriting skills, his storytelling and the message he proclaimed in his early years. She kinda understood what I meant.
