That's cool that we have smilar tastes I just noticed that iTunes also has a special edition of Stop Making Sense, a live Talking Heads album. It's longer than the version I have. Sand In the Vasoline is a nice starting place for Talking Heads, but you really can't go wrong with most of their albums.

No Spoken Words,

I really envy your position; To be on the verge of discovering so much great music. Let us know what bands you end up liking the most.

My money is on Muse and Kasabian.

Well, I'm always looking for new stuff, more often than not I'm disappointed...but, for every recent disappointment there's been an Elbow or Doves, both of whom I really love.

I just think that a lot of my collection is getting stale...3,000 songs is a lot, but, much of it I've heard too much....so, yeah, this is cool, on the precipice of, as U2 might say "A musical journey".

Hmm if you like Beth Orton (as everyone should) check out Gemma Hayes.

And you can never go wrong with a little bit of Nick Cave on the side.

Oh well, happy downloading.

I love Beth Orton, yeah. Was lucky enough to see her LIVE in LA, at a small club near the Staples Center...she put on a great show, and, for a bunch of the songs, added a new twist or sped them up, was really well done. Someone told me she has some sort of fatigue issue, so playing LIVE for her is hard.

Thanks for the suggestion, Gemma Hayes will be checked out.

By the way, of all the avatars and signatures floating around interfernce, your Oh, Snap, as well as that photo of Bono with the "Oh Shit, Son" is easily my favorite.
Thanks! I can't remember where I found Oh Snap, but the Bono image was Canadiens1160's brilliant creation.

Have you checked out Rob Dickinson's (of Catherine Wheel) solo cd Fresh Wine For the Horses? He's also doing a few shows on the west coast in Jan. (I'm not sure exactly where, but it's listed on his Myspace page and also on www.robdickinson.com ). It's usually just Rob and a guitar (with effects though ), but he puts on an excellent show.

Also I noted you mentioned The Church (yep, I can ferret out a mention of them nearly anywhere ). Yay! Do you have any of SK's solo or side projects? itunes has several of them, including the self titled Isidore (SK and Jeffery Cain of Remy Zero); Snow Job the second cd of the Jack Frost project (SK and the late Grant McLennan of the Go-Betweens); Gilt Trip, a lovely chill out instrumental album SK did with his brother Russell; and all Steve's solo cds. My favourites of his solo cds are Dabble and Remindlessness ("The Celebration of the Elephant God" is an especially wonderfully trippy song -- it accidentally got hooked up with "Soul Sample" so it shows as only one song and is only sold with the whole album on itunes). However, if you tend to like the more pop oriented Church songs then Unearthed or The Slow Crack might be better choices. Acoustic & Intimate is one I dearly love, but might not be for everyone as it is just Steve and an acoustic guitar.

-- Remy Zero's Villa Elaine is fantastic and the song not on itunes, "Goodbye Little World" is the weakest so you're not missing much.

-- Lamb's Best Kept Secrets -- The Best of Lamb 1996-2004 is another album I love. I'm not often into electronica, but this is good.

-- Big Spaceship's Dream On is kinda in that same vein. Electronica, but good. Well, I like it anyway.

-- Go-Betweens -- Bellavista Terrace: Best of the Go-Betweens is an excellent introduction to them. You can't go wrong with "Bye Bye Pride" and "Streets of Your Town"

-- Grant McLennan (also comes up as G.W. McLennan) Grant was a founding member of the Go-Betweens (he died this past May) -- itunes has Horsebreaker Star. You need this album. It's become one of my favourites. I only have the single disc US version, so I'm missing six of the songs listed on the album on itunes. Guess I better get those! The song "Horsebreaker Star" is just beautiful....

-- Gersey. I'm so excited that Gersey is on itunes! The music is shimmery, and noodly, and shoegazey in a way. It swirls and builds -- a slow burn. Beautiful stuff, great for late nights. Both Storms Dressed As Stars and Hope Springs are among my favourite albums. I've only met one other person who absolutely raves about them, so they aren't everyone's cup of tea, but I really like 'em. Storms Dressed As Stars would probably be the better choice if you are only going to get one.

Axver, I gots me some Crowded House and Midniight Oil on my Ipod already, but, I am gonna check out your earlier recommendations.
If you don't have Crowded House's Together Alone album, get it. It's their best. The melodic rock/pop tones of the earlier albums are augmented by fantastic atmospheric sensibilities, especially on tracks like Kare Kare and Private Universe. Also, check out the following two tunes from the Crowdies' out-takes CD, Afterglow: Anyone Can Tell and Recurring Dream. The latter is my very favourite Crowded House song ever, and the former is in my top ten. Both AMAZING songs; Recurring Dream is the perfect melodic rock song.

And I really hope you like Porcupine Tree. Steven Wilson has one of the most beautiful voices I have ever heard. The latest album of another project he's involved in, Blackfield, has just leaked and I can't get enough of it.

I could also try to get you into prog and atmospheric and technical metal ...

Axver, you'd have trouble getting me into anything metal, but, the other 2 would not be so hard.

Indra, thanks for the tips...you actually burned me a Church CD a year or so ago, I still listen to it now and then. I had not realized that Rob Dickinson's solo album was already out, shame on me...last I'd heard his voice, he sung lead for 2 Jimmy Chamberlin songs, both of which I have. I'll check that out, and Gersey as well.

Greenlight, I've listened to all of the above, but, some more than others. Re: The The, any one album you'd recommend to me?

Familiar with the first bunch, never heard of The Men They Couldn't Hang.......will have to check them out.

I like the first 5 a lot, I've avoided being called "tone deaf"!

Thanks.

Seriously! First Lush, now Stone Roses. We should have started hanging out back in 1987 (after our first U2 show)!

I mentioned RIDE (played with Lush) in Hawaii. They rank up there with Radiohead, Stone Roses and U2 for me. the earlier the RIDE, the better.

Booster juice suggested Bloc Party and Indra suggested Remy Zero! I do not have anything from Remy Zero, but I saw them live and think that the lead singer has an amazing voice!

Others:

Wolf Parade
Tapes n' Tapes

(both have a similar feel - ecclectic...like Arcade Fire breeding with Modest Mouse. That's my opinion at least).

Decemberists
Sufjan Stevens
Belle and Sebatian

(all have wonderfully beautiful songs that can be poetic and funny).

Broken Social Scene

(They found it in People is one of those albums I would need to have with me if I was stranded on an island for the rest of my life).

Yup...I am SURE I could go on for hours. I buy too much.
