Lifted


It blows my mind that there are 4 people from Utah here these days. Mediaman, U2inUtah, Hoodlem, me. My how things have changed.

The Rising Tide is not a compilation it's actually their last album as SDRE. You are right though, it's very good. I would recommend it to any U2 fan. The only other album I have by them is the 'Pink Album' actually it's called LP2 (but they call it that because the cover is Pink) . It's pretty good, not nearly as accessible or frankly as good as The Rising Tide.

Pumpkins - start with Siamese Dream or their Best Of. Then just go chronologically.

Pearl Jam - I'd go chronologically as well, make sure you give Lost Dogs a listen though.

My favourite of theirs is How It Feels To Be Something On.
Also, check out Jeremy Enigk's one-album band The Firetheft. It's pretty spectacular.

Yeah, I would have recommended Aenima as well. Probably their best.

I'd also say to Martha, if you prefer more of the straight forward approach of metal/rock (as opposed to the more psych/proggish hints) then Undertow is quite fucking badass. Then again, Undertow has some of those tendencies as well. I just think it rocks directly a little more. The song 'Intolerance' is killer, 'Flood' is as well. I could list songs all day really.....

If you eventually dig Aenima, of course there is always Lateralus which is essentially the thematic sequel to Aenima.

'Jambi' from their newest album is probably one of my 5 favorite Tool songs of all time. Check out some YouTubeness on that one.
Fucking great song. One of the most sheer metal songs they've ever done.

I'd have to go with Ten and Vs. for the starter kit.
Even though I think Vitalogy is their best album.

Avoid anything after Yield until you've already fell in love with them.

I'll third that opinion.
Bjork has made some other excellent albums but that is as good as they come, really.

'Isobel' from Post
'Come To Me' from Debut

Except perhaps the eponymous newest album? Anyway, I'm not 100% sure I agree with that anyway as Binaural is one of my favourite of their albums, and the 3rd one that I got (only Vs. and Lost Dogs before it).

The solo albums by Paul McCartney, John Lennon, and George Harrison (besides Harrison's All Things Must Pass and Lennon's Imagine)?

Do it. The Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place and All of a Sudden I Miss Everyone are both fantastic albums.

I really like EINACDP too. They're definitely an acquired taste, but at least check out that one.

New Pornographers....start with Mass Romantic then on to Twin Cinema. I was a little disappointed with Challengers.

As mentioned before Fox Confessor is great also worth a try.
