I just picked up the new John Mayer Trio. If you like 70's rock/blues in the mold of bands like Cream, do yourself a favor and pick up this CD. John Mayer is a brave artist. Known for his sugar coated ballads, he really went out on a limb with this CD and didn't cowtow to his record label by putting out more bubble gum. Just to show his bravery... his first CD release with the Trio is a live CD.

What's the name of this album?
(Do they still call them albums?) I usually find myself calling all music CD's now.
Back when we were spinning records it was album, do I sound old by calling it that?

I have never been into "greatest hits" of anything. I guess I would like to decide for myself what is greatest, even if it takes me 3 or 4 cds to do it, I delete the songs I don't like, and I keep the rest. I currently do not have any Blink, but I will look into it and see if they are my slice o' cheese.

I literally stumbled across this guy on iTunes while looking for something else: http://www.theessink.com/en/
Hans Theessink. Anybody heard of him???
Great delta blues, guitar pickin', baritone voice. You wouldn't know it from listening to it but the guy is from the Netherlands.
Check out some of the samples on his website (audio page). "24 Hours a Day" is a good tune.

I like the hard rock/metal stuff to pump me up for skiing, etc. but this is some cool laid back sh!t. :)

It's called "Try". I can't get it out of my CD player. Not many people know that he is quite an accomplished blues player. I saw him on Austin City Limits and he played with SRV's back up band Double Trouble plus Buddy Guy came out for a couple songs. Great Show!!

Um, i recently got the the "newest" Taking Back Sunday CD. Where you want to be is the name of the album. Its pretty good. They used so by a lot like blink 182, but they changed alot in their new CD. Another band that i hightliy Recomend, is Billy Talent (its a band not 1 person) They have a unique sound that i really like. And if anyone is looking for some good ole' metal, Slipknot Volume 3 Subliminal Verses, their drummer Joey Jordinson, is truely amazing when it comes to playing the drums, he is also recorded to be the fastest drummer in the world, along with the drummer from slayer i believe...

Not to obsess on the iPod concept, but an album at the Apple music store is $9.99. I agree with your sentiments and particularly appreciate being able to go to an album and listen to, pick, and choose the songs I want and skip the others. I note that my iPod has a lot of 4-5 song albums on it.

I bought 6 cds last week, and got 6 more for christmas (what's the chances they weren't the same ones;) ) I have not made it much further than loading them on the comp.

I have many cds I only load (or keep) 1 or 2 songs. I think of it as if my taste in music changes over the years, I will be able to go back and add or delete as needed. I have ZERO downloaded music, and I "probably" won't in the near future. (Eventually I may not have this option)

Not brand new but I think that the Crossfade CD is one of the best rock albums out in a long time. I dowloaded it when it first came out and ran it in my CD player non stop for about three weeks. Can't tell you the last time I did that with a CD. The couple of songs that have a lot of radio play are getting a little old but the rest of the CD is really good.

I've never really been a big music fan - I tend to like individual songs rather than particular artists or genres, so I've always found buying a CD to be a crapshoot, and standing at the voluminous CD rack at Target a sort of bewildering experience. Often, if I ever bought a CD, it was on the basis of one or two songs I might have heard on XM or somewhere. For me then, downloading music is a great option because I can just pick and choose individual songs, pre-listen to them and be more cost-efficient in music purchases. I've never owned an iPod before and likely wouldn't have one now if they hadn't done the video iPod model, but I do find it nice to browse music on my computer and add music that strikes my fancy in addition to podcasts, video, DVDs etc.

Personal thing - everybody does it differently. My wife has many, many CDs, but a guy can only listen to "Miss Saigon" or Andrea Boccelli so many times...I'm glad Steve Jobs has provided yet another option "for the rest of us".

Actually, you're in good company. While (legal) music album downloads are up about 150% in the last year, CD album sales are only down about 6%.

For all their whining about file-sharing, and the internet being the end of commercial music, it would seem that the MPAA doesn't have that much to complain about relative to overall music sales.

No, no, no...I'm not talking about pirating music...I'm talking about downloading from iTunes or whatever at $.99 per song. Illegal file sharing web sites aside, the poor starving musicians get just as much money from downloaded music as they do from CDs. Which is to say, they get ripped off by their record label all the same no matter how the music gets to the consumer.

Currently, as the Fair Use Act and the Audio Home Recording Act of 1992 are interpreted, the average consumer has the right to make a copy of a CD or DVD for backup purposes as long as he is the original purchaser and still retains the original. The RIAA and MPAA are still very bitter about that series of court decisions.

Another aspect of that decision, IIRC, is that recording companies have no obligation to provide the means for making a backup copy. They have interpreted that to mean that they can encrypt or scramble the discs.

There is some older encryption that you could bypass by holding the "ctrl" button down as you put the cd tray into the computer. This worked for me on at least one David Bowie CD that would automatically take you to the CD rom function when you put it into the computer.

Skips? Is it a sony CD? Do you have itunes setup to rip it a little slower so there is less likelihood of a skip? You might also try ripping it with Windows Media Player, then importing the songs into itunes.

I've got almost 300 cd's loaded, and had trouble with this ONE. I do not know what the problem is. Put the disc in, and it plays, no problem. I click upload, and it loads, but has this sort of skip to it, or Sounds funny, not sure how else to describe it.
I had two different buddies that know much more than I 'bout 'puters, and still no luck. Maybe its an itunes issue and not the cd..... I think there are 1300 songs in my "kept" library.

Great tune Eastie. :toast: Great show too. (Grady was it man! Good goobily goob)I have to stick with Hawaii 5-0 for tv themes, that tune had such an infectious groove to it. The drum intro just hooks you, and the build is terrific. Great dynamics, such a climactic crescendo at the end. You just cant help but get into the tune. The version with surf guitars and horns is the best IMO, check out Brian Setzer's version of it, it cooks! :twocents:

WFT, I listen to current pop radio at work all day, so its not like Im not exposed to new music. I will be completely open and honest, I am an elitist ******* musician. Its like being an addict. When you get a little, you only want more, and more and more. Its gotta get better all the time and once you raise the bar, you cant go back down again. I could rant on for days about this, I wont cuz it will bore you. I will give you the short version. :) (this aint like the car thing, I will argue this till the day I die, so dont get me started, please.) Its a musician thing I think. I need my ears to be stimulated as a musician. I listen to music on different levels. when I really need a fix, its gotta be something truly progressive like Kansas, TSO, Styx, any "prog rock" band. Anything that pushes the envelope musically. Most of the stuff on the radio today just dont deliver that, I keep waiting for it to, but it never does. the record industry doesnt allow it anymore, They are only interested in stuff that the KNOW will sell. Flash in the pan stuff. Here today, gone tomarrow. production line, cookie cutter music. It has nothing to do with talent anymore, just marketability. More image than anything musical. If they look good and are sexy, it doesnt matter if they can sing. they can fix that. record compaines care about money more than music. Most of the stuff on the radio now is poor remakes of old 80's tunes. its a sad statement. Nobody has any creativity anymore. Nobody wants to take any risks, they just want money. Trust me, I am hungry for good music and I keep listening to new stuff all teh time to discover it, but so far, no dice. :(

I am not in a band, and I don't think into it that much. I don't care what the band looks like. The music I listen to needs to have that certain something, I don't know how to describe it. I could buy a CD for one song that catchs my attention.
Shinedown...45 This does nothing for you?

I drive my friends/family crazy with the variety of genre I listen to. Everything, but it needs "that" certain something. Again, I am not in a band so I would not be able to describe to you what, it just is.

Then there are the "noises" I just can't stand.... For example.. The dixie chicks is like nails on a chalkboard for me. Shedaisy I can tolerate and it sounds the same, not sure why. (by the way, I own neither, just for reference) I have only a few groups/bands I cannot stand.

WFT, im with you on the dixie chicks :toast: I will probably get beaten with a club if I keep ranting on that genre of "music", so I will stop.

NOW, I saw Shinedown on tour with Van Halen and I was not impressed at all. Couldnt get into them. I dont know if you consider them new, but I do like Rob Zombie, and Rammstein. I do like the Darkness in small doses, but to me they are more like a real life "Spinal Tap".

I know what you mean about music having a certain "something." :) I also enjoy many genres of music, but NO country, rap, or raggae. I love classical, ROCK AND ROLL!! and can get into blues and jazz on some level too. I really expand on rock. Pop rock, New wave, Hair bands, Metal, classic rock, I love it all, but I have a hunger for progressive rock. I can go from Mozart to Maiden, Beatles to Beethoven, Van Halen to Vivaldi, I am versatile. I just really get into stuff that has true musical virtuosity, as cheesey and corny as they may be, I can totally get into new wave style synth tunes like "She blinded me with science" and "Mr. Roboto" get passed the cheesienees, listen to whats goin on the song. Lots of virtuosity and writing in there. For me its all about dynamics, each instrument being a pivotal ingredient to the song as a whole, each one has its place and shines. I hate songs that just have 3 chords chugging over a nonstop drum beat. I love songs that build up and break it down, the guitars roar, the synths soar, thunderous drums, crashing cymbals, laser precision piano, vocal harmonies plentiful, all working together not overpowering each other. Thats what I really get into. :D

Pop rock, New wave, Hair bands, Metal, classic rock, I love it all, but I have a hunger for progressive rock. I can go from Mozart to Maiden, Beatles to Beethoven, Van Halen to Vivaldi, I am versatile. I just really get into stuff that has true musical virtuosity, as cheesey and corny as they may be, I can totally get into new wave style synth tunes like "She blinded me with science" and "Mr. Roboto" get passed the cheesienees, listen to whats goin on the song. Lots of virtuosity and writing in there. For me its all about dynamics, each instrument being a pivotal ingredient to the song as a whole, each one has its place and shines. I hate songs that just have 3 chords chugging over a nonstop drum beat. I love songs that build up and break it down, the guitars roar, the synths soar, thunderous drums, crashing cymbals, laser precision piano, vocal harmonies plentiful, all working together not overpowering each other. Thats what I really get into.


Admit you like American Idol and get on with it! :D :rolleyes:

UMP- what do you mean "the record industry doesn't allow it anymore"? Until it's time for "that new sound", they haven't allowed it for 75 years. It's always a cycle where the record companies break some new band or sound, then they all jump on the bandwagon and pound that into the ground, find a new sound and keep the cycle going. The small labels may have always been the real groundbreakers, but always just a springboard for the true innovators because they never have the money to keep the "next best thing" from jumping to a big label. Sun Records is a great example of this.

Also, you said that it's not like you're not exposed to new music. It may be new for a short time, then they beat it into the ground and play those songs three to five times a day if the statios you listen to are anything like the ones here, although there was a format change at one here and I can listen to it for awhile. Otherwise, I listen to WMSE most of the time, and I don't worry about the format or announcers not being polished professionals. I don't listen to all of their shows, but I can leave it on all day and not usually hear a song duplicated in a week or more.

The tricky part is finding something a lot of people will buy, not great music. Occasionally, a band that writes or records great music will make it but the rest is based on the record company formula for what they think will sell. Don't even get me started on the way record companies screw the bands and artists they sign.

If you like real prog, go to www.wmse.org and look for their prog show. It's the Milwaukee School Of Engineering station and if you're in town the prog show is on Sunday nights. Mark is really into European bands but does play some American music if it's good. His collection is huge and he's always buying more (he was just in Mexico for a Prog Rock convention).

COMMERCIAL RADIO $UCK$!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am not in a band, and I don't think into it that much. I don't care what the band looks like. The music I listen to needs to have that certain something, I don't know how to describe it. I could buy a CD for one song that catchs my attention.
Shinedown...45 This does nothing for you?

I drive my friends/family crazy with the variety of genre I listen to. Everything, but it needs "that" certain something. Again, I am not in a band so I would not be able to describe to you what, it just is.

Then there are the "noises" I just can't stand.... For example.. The dixie chicks is like nails on a chalkboard for me. Shedaisy I can tolerate and it sounds the same, not sure why. (by the way, I own neither, just for reference) I have only a few groups/bands I cannot stand.

W4T, get Ryan Adams Heartbreaker. Great tune from the movie, "Old School" on there.

You could call it that, but as I get older, so does my definition of "children." I don't know about the rest of the cd, but I heard that song on Entourage and liked it enough to download. $.99 well spent.

Anyone heard of Tenacious D. It is Jack Blacks band, they are coming out with a new movie in the up coming weeks. They are a good "funny" band. They sing about stupid things, but make it sound pretty good.

Yeah, I remember their first album, although I never owned it.

Wikipedia on them (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tenacious_D).

If anyone is looking for some feel-good chilling on the boat music, check out Dispatch and their 'All Points Bulletin' album. Can't really pinpoint the genre, but its kind of Dave Matthews-ish with a little bit of reggae. Really unique sound that NEVER gets old. My favorite band of all time.
