Hey Bonnie, you're three off 3,000 posts!

And this was post 45554 for me!

The entire Judgement album worked together so well, it just left me speechless. I couldn't stop listening to it. I even went to a lot of effort to rig up my computer speakers so I could listen to the album in the shower, that's how much I loved it in the first week I heard it. It still sounds just as good to me as well. It's my second favourite album ever, behind The Unforgettable Fire. I rarely recommend it to people though, because I know they won't experience it the way I did and I have a tendency to overhype things.

Otherwise, yeah, it's generally songs rather than albums. It's rare for me to find an album that sounds so complete.

Listening to Loveless now ... it's good, but not that great to me. I definitely prefer my shoegazer to have a heavier edge and not to be TOTALLY washed out. Ride's Seagull is pretty much exactly what I want out of shoegazing.
That's awesome, seriously. They're metal, I guess? Metal in its forms is really the only of the key genres that I don't really listen to. I listen to rap a lot, and I like early Appalachian style country. But I think the closest I have to metal on my iPod is just the heavier shoegaze stuff. I should really try checking out some more.

I think you'll like the Lilys a lot. I'm going to have a track of theirs on my DI disc, haven't decided which one but they've got some heavier elements along with the washed out sound. A good leveler.

See, this is where my almost-total ignorance of bootleg DVDs trips me up.

*HINT HINT*

Subtle as a brick, yes?


Geez, I reminisce with my employment history and you lot pile on three pages!

It's in Pleba, but don't worry Ax, it's not crude or anything.

Yeah, but he went naturally bald in 1984 (I think he took one look at Bono's mullet and thought "better lose it all now than end up like that")... genetics vs. the ageing process

Anathema started out as metal (doom death, to be precise), but by Judgement, they'd evolved to a dark alternative rock sound. I don't think any tracks really qualify as metal with the possible exception of Pitiless.

Metal is an incredibly diverse genre, I think much more than those unfamiliar with it realise. There's plenty of metal I despise (usually the juvenile thrash metal and metalcore) and that I think ruins its reputation. But it is very inaccessible for the most part. It's hard to really pinpoint a good starting point. I unsurprisingly have an inclination towards the atmospheric side of the genre - and I have absolutely no issue with death growls, which helps.

I really don't appreciate rap or country at all. I hate to write off an entire genre, and I would never say I hate them outright; I simply haven't heard anything I like yet. I find my tastes to be contradictorily both broad and narrow. You can generally tie things together with the atmospheric thread, and often prominent guitars.

OK, you're going to have to explain this to me further, as Edge had ridiculously long hair on Lovetown, the longest hair any member of U2 has ever had.
