Poll: what are the CDs you plan to buy? Help me decide on something...

So far i have been making a list of "CDs to buy", and Top 10 looks like this:

Cure: greatest hits
The Strokes: Is this it
Dave Matthews Band: (the album that has the songs The space between and that song he did on Telethone)
REM: Automatic for the people
Modjo: (the album with Lady)
Moby: Play
Manic Street Preachers: (the album with Ocean spray and Let robeson sing)
Van Morrison: (hmmm. Heard "Healing game" recently and loved it, but i also looove "Brown eyed girl". Prolly can't go wrong with greatest hits.)
Vonda Sheperd: Ally McBeal soundtrack
New Order: (the last one, with Crystal)

The "less known but i'm interested" section includes Daniel Lanois, David Gray, Calling, Electric soft parade)

The "classics" section includes Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and Bob Dylan.

now comes the part where i need your help

The "heard of them but i have no idea whether i should give it a listen or not" section includes
David Bowie (ok i know Hero but that's it), Television, Velvet Underground, Pixies, Joy Division, Siouxie& the Banshees, Jane's addiction (i know Been caught stealing but that's it)

Who out there knows any/all of these bands?Is there a band today that sounds like any of these bands/artists so i can get some sort of idea what to expect? I heard of them several times but i have no clue what they sound like.

Not on your list, but be sure to check out Elbow's CD "Asleep in the Back". It is awesome!

my husband (doctor gonzo) is a huge fan of new order and absolutely loves that cd, get ready. i heard it once and it didn't sound too bad, although i don't know their stuff so his review is better than mine.

oooooops...didn't look at the last section.

i also recommend david bowie (esp. his earlier stuff, a greatest hits might be the best thing to start with to get familiar with his work, since his music changes drastically in style sometimes.) and velvet underground and nico. it's a great album.

Joy Division - takes some getting used to (IMO)

Cure's Greatest Hits - I LOVE this CD

Van Morrison - I also recommend Astral Weeks

I just bought Elvis Costello's new one, When I was Cruel and its excellent, almost like the old Elvis of 1978.

I think anyone's greatests hits is a good way to go if your trying to get familiar with their music then if you really like them, you can buy the individual CD's. If you don't like them, then you've only wasted your money on one.

I vote for going right to Daniel Lanois "Acadie." It's one of my all-time favorite records.

I'm a Dave Matthews Band fan and I have to tell you that the only 2 good songs on "Everyday" are the two you mentioned (this is the general consensus among most fans, but of course you might just love it). I think it's their worst record. I'd start with either "Under the Table Dreaming" or "Crash" or hold out for the new Lillywhite Sessions whenever it is released (very soon).

The Strokes album is good. I don't think they're the saviours of rock or anything, but it's definitely a fun album and way better than most American music.

I don't like the new DMB album. In fact, I was a fan of their music until I bought that album. As someone else said, the two songs you mentioned are the only good ones on the album. Buy Elbow instead.

REM is a great choice.

The Moby album is okay. I haven't listened to it in a long time, though.

The Manic Street Preachers album you mentioned is Know Your Enemy. I don't have this album yet, but MSP are fantastic.

New Order's Get Ready is great. One of their best albums in a long time, in my opinion.

I love David Gray's "White Ladder" album. I wore it out during my senior year of college because I always listened it to while studying or writing papers.

Electric Soft Parade is a good choice too. "Silent to the Dark" is one of my favourite tracks.

You can't go wrong with Joy Division. It's an acquired taste (I HATED them the first time I heard them), but the lyrics are absolutely gorgeous.

I know the other bands, but I don't feel qualified to comment on them, except to say that the Pixies album Doolittle was a staple to me during my freshman year of high school. I never really listened to anything else of theirs, though.

Play is good, but it isn't for everyone. It is more soundtrack-type music, not exactly a lot of singing on some of them -- more instrumentals. It is a variety of music on Play, for sure, but it doesn't exactly "mesh" with the rest of the tracks, if that makes sense.

I'll second the Velvet Underground and Nico.

If you want a Van Morrison album, you might want to listen to Astral Weeks and Moondance as well.
