Wilco probably tops the list. Elvis Presley sent me a Wilco mix way back but I have yet to listen to it because I'm never in the mood.

I always want to explore more in the realms of jazz, electronica and classical music but I haven't had the time. My knowledge of the local music scene is also infuriatingly limited.

How will people ever understand the greatness of radiohead if they dont' give all their sounds a fair shake?

Yeah, I can't think of anything else.

GibsonGirl:

If you're gonna try out Wilco, I'd recommend Summerteeth first, then Being There. Yankee Hotel Foxtrot is good after those two. I actually like Being There better than Summerteeth but feel the mellow feel of Summerteeth draws in more people. Obviously I'm recommending the more "conventional" stuff and if thats not your cup of tea then dive right into A Ghost is Born and Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. I have never gotten into A Ghost is Born which is why I don't recommend it and I'm too lazy to buy AM.

The Wilco and Billy Bragg album tribute of Woodie Guthrie- "Mermaid Avenue" is great but mebbe too rootsy but I'd still recommend it after you listen to all the others.


My list at this moment...

T-Rex
Steve Vai
Arcade Fire

I bought Yankee Hotel Foxtrot and A Ghost is Born first (and at the same time), then Summerteeth about a month later. I still like YHF and AGIB better overall than Summerteeth. I think I'd like Wilco if Summerteeth was what I heard first, but not sure I'd love them from that album alone.

Those are my big ones right now-I've heard some of their songs, but I want to start getting, like, compilation CDs, at least, to start off with, and continue on from there, 'cause I'm loving what I've heard so far. I'm sure there's more out there, if I think of them, I'll list them later.

Angela I would certainly recommend the Jam, Paul Weller is a great songwriter. "The Sound of the Jam" is a good best of compilation.

Well... Bends is clearly the most listener friendly! If she doesn't like the Bends, I doubt if she'll like anything else. There is of course that off chance (0.01%) that she hates the Bends and loves Kid A.

I think as with almost everything music related it is partly a matter of taste - someone more into mainstream rock and roll would prefer The Bends, someone more into ambient stuff would prefer an album like Kid A. They travelled quite a journey from 1995 to 2000 between The Bends and Kid A.

*Writes this down* Thanks . I'll keep an eye out for this.

And yes, from what I've heard so far, Paul definitely seems like a very talented person .

It's funny...I never heard U2 cite him as an influence...but he was probably one of the most intelligent songwriters of the early 80's and late 70's, and still has a pretty successful career today. In some ways, he is similar to Bono in being able to combine the personal and political in his songwriting, and I would probably rate him as one of the best songwriters ever to come out of England.

I haven't actually hear anything by them yet....

But this little blurb from their website sounded interesting:

Quote:

The music is lo-fi, down tempo and instrumental. Gentle melodies weave in and out of through noir-ish atmospheres and mysterious distant street sounds.

...and just to check I went and googled The Church -- damned if their official site didn't pop up right at the very top of page 1! So now I'm embarrassed. I guess someone figured out how to push them higher in google's standings. That's shockingly competent for them....

Heh, well, funny you mention that about U2, 'cause I was watching a "Headline Act" show on VH1 Classic with Paul Weller once, and if I recall, he did refer to U2 towards the very end (in a favorable manner, too). Wouldn't surprise me if there was some influence there somewhere or something.

But yeah, I've noticed some of what you're referring to in the songs I've heard. He seems pretty cool, I've heard many respectable comments about him . Doesn't hurt that some of the songs are really fun to dance to, as well . LOL.

1. Just about every 'IT' band everyone raves about at the moment. There's too many of them, and what I've heard they mostly all sound the same!!
