Axver, listened to Porcupine Tree's In Absentia twice now. I liked it a lot...like some other stuff I like, I need to be in the mood for it, but, I definitely liked it....some really pretty passages in there. Thanks!

Up next: Gemma Hayes

On Deck: Regina Spektor

Great!

If you particularly enjoyed songs like Trains, I highly recommend you check out Stupid Dream. It's generally a softer album than In Absentia.

Hey, a lot of people have recommended her, we'll see if it's my cup of tea or not!

I'll check out Stupid Dream and let you know how I liked it.

Good luck with your Desert Island competition.

That baffles me. I've heard a couple of her songs and she sounded like a bad pop star who can't sing.

Keep an eye out for the tracks Piano Lessons, This Is No Rehearsal, Stranger By The Minute, A Smart Kid, and Stop Swimming. Piano Lessons is my favourite PT song ever, and Stop Swimming has beautiful singing along with wonderful lyrics:

This song leaks out onto the pavement
Could be a joke, could be a statement
The more that I fake it and pretend not to care
The more you can read into what isn't there

Thanks.

I was hoping you would enter, but spaces are full now. You can be our first reserve if you'd like!

I thought about it, but, I think I prefer to just be a bystander and watch the competition.

I actually was not thinking along those lines, but, that aspect does not suck....

I'm more interested in seeing everyone's tastes and such.

If I did it, there'd be like one musical theme or direction, my tastes are not quite eclectic enough for such a competition, even if I've got lots of songs on my Ipod....too many are from similar genres! This thread is helping me add songs, though.

Heh, I think that's what doomed me last time, too much prog stuff that people just didn't know. This time, I've taken a different route, and while the prog's still there, I've tried to reflect the other side of my tastes as well.

NSW... looking through your list I'd say we have a fair amount in common. Try a few tracks from Over the Rhine.
And Regina Spektor is superb. At least the new album; on the earlier two she's a bit of a slave to her own quirkiness and virtuosity. Samson and On the Radio are two of the best songs I have ever heard.

definitely Muse (they have a lot of albums, but their latest two "absolution" and "black holes and revelations" are really really good)
and Mutemath (self titled debut)
and The Shins, Scorpions, Styx, the Fray, and OK GO

if you like Eisley, you should try Copeland. they have quite a few albums too, all of them are good.
and Depeche Mode.
If you like 80s music, try "orchestral maneuvers in the dark" which is usually shortened to OMD. if they don't sound familiar, htey're the ones that sang "If you leave, don't leave now..."
=)
have fun!
if you havne't registered at www.pandora.com yet, it's also a great way to discover new similar artists to the ones you like

Thanks for the recommendations! As a person born in 1970, of course I know of OMD!! 80's music is like ingrained in my head, for all time. I really dug Mutemath and Absolution and Black Holes and Revelations.....

Copeland sounds interesting, I'll have to check it out.

Thanks again!!!

Oh, come on! Now, I've only heard a couple of her songs, but when an artist is that bad, there's no point investigating further, e.g. I didn't need to hear more than two songs by Britney Spears or Nickelback to know they are total shit. And Regina Spektor sounded like a shitty pop star, maybe a quirkier Britney, who can't fu-U-u-U-u-ucki-i-i-i-i-ing si-i-i-i-ing.
