Pre-Off the Wall as well? Probably. Most Jacko fans would find something likable in most everything from then on though.

Thank you.

And if anyone needs a recommendation, I'll say Separation Sunday- The Hold Steady

I haven't forgotten, LeMel, but I've been really busy with work lately. I did get one listen of it, but it was in the background while I was writing a motion. I want to give it a proper listen before I make a few comments.

Thanks for the recommendation.

No problem. Background listens aren't much use to anyone.

IYup: school has started up, so I'm in a jazz place again. Get Up With It will be heard over the weekend.

Get Up With It was decidedly not heard over that weekend in August, but I heard it on Sunday. Hot, HOT album. I enjoy On The Corner and everything, but it feels fairly simplistic compared to the more fully-formed tunes here. Miles gave himself a massive canvas to work with, and he fills it with a vivid array of sounds that besides funk includes ambient, krautrock and hazy psychedelia that is right up my alley at the moment. Sure, this is a damn long record, but I was engaged for the full two hour duration.

I suppose this thread can continue now.

...I was hoping this would never get bumped so I could stop feeling guilty.

I'd apologize, but I totally wanted this thread back.

Glad you liked it. I think that it demonstrates Miles's incredible versatility better than any of his other albums. I also think that it was probably one of the few things that I could have recommended to you that you would not already have heard.

Also, I think that you can find ambient being born in "He Loved Him Madly."

I would argue that it was born a few years earlier on In A Silent Way, but I do find it interesting that Miles was such a purveyor of ambient before Eno made Discreet Music.

Fair point about In a Silent Way. Eno has said that "He Loved Him Madly" was a major inspiration for his ambient work, but I guess that the song really is more of a drone/vamp than an Eno-esque ambient piece. I could not imagine an album like Ravedeath, one of my favorites from this year, without Loved Him Madly, though.

There's a lot of wonderful early ambient out there that predates Eno's work. I would recommend In den Garten Pharaos by Popol Vuh; it's from 1971 and is an excellent early example of drone and krautrock. It's a huge wash of sound that reminds me of what Hecker's doing today, only 40 years beforehand. It's the sonic equivalent of a huge thunderstorm.

I think a "Recommend A Lobotomy" thread would greater serve this message board.

This was awesome. Good call, totally straight up the middle of my alley. Didn't hurt that the lead singer had some Brandon Flowers in his voice.

Ok, so I've been thinking and I think that I really over-thought this thread the first time around (lots of thinking going on here). So, here's what I'd like to see happen, so this doesn't fade off into procrastination-induced obscurity again. From now on, we'll throw out the list. If you're feeling frisky and you want to listen to music, but can't think of what, come in here and drop a line. Hopefully people will be around with recommendations aplenty. You obviously don't HAVE to listen to what people suggest, but it will go a long way to helping you possibly discover some new music.

So with that in mind, let's try and start things over again and some point. I'll gladly take recommendations any time, myself.
