Which five bands.....?
Post by Chessman on Aug 11th, 2008, 6:27pm

Which five bands, or artists, have you been listening to the most over the last month or so?
They don't have to be your favourite bands of all time. They may, indeed, be new discoveries, or bands you have neglected too much in the past. Or just bands whose music has hit you suddenly.
Anyway, for me, over the last month or so my top five, in no particular order, have been:

Sylvan
Abraxas
RPWL
Collage
Satellite


I'm sure the coming four weeks will see other bands replacing most of these. For instance, I've started returning to The Flower Kings over the last few days, and playing more Riverside.
Oh the joy of choice! grin

Well...........this is a toughy because I listen to an awful lot of music on a daily basis. But from what my pea-sized brain can recollect.............

1. Neal Morse (solo and with SB)
2. Tomas Bodin
3. The Tangent
4. Gazpacho
5. Quidam


Not necessarily in that order.



I've also been listening to

Spock's Beard
The Flower Kings
Sylvan
The Guess Who
Hasse Bruniusson
Abraxas
Roine Stolt
Kaipa
Traffic
MMEB


and so many more.......................... cool

Nice to know he's still doing the rounds though. I do believe he actually contributed to one of the Mission's later albums. Well, it was either that, or he appeared on stage with them at some point. Can't remember which now.

Thanks Fraser, for rubbing it in! sad wink

Tower Of Strength is a great song. In fact, the first half of the album Children is superb. My only complaint is that the album is very quiet, and seems to go quieter as it goes on. (Yes, I know I could turn it up, but that's not the point!)
I wonder if it's been remastered?
I used to have a video of the band live, but I don't know where it went. They were surprisingly good. (My nephew Philip got me into them, back around the time of Children.)
It was often said that Wayne Hussey wasn't a good singer, but I felt his voice suited the songs perfectly.
I actually like one of their later albums, Masque, a lot. Their style has changed on it, and they've become a little more polished, but the songs are very varied and very catchy. It's a fine album, imo. smiley

...there's dozens of versions of She Sells Sanctuary on there, from the original featuring Ian with his gay pirate look, to a version from a Free Tibet gig last year where he looks disturbingly like Micheal Hutchens (no not now...when he was alive)
There's even a version from some dumb american show where Ian does the song in a C&W stylie! shocked

Ah! She Sells Sanctuary. So we're talking The Cult here. All becomes clear now!
I used to quite like The Cult. I had four of their albums. My favourite one is Sonic Temple, though I do like Love as well.
My favourite tracks on that are 'The Phoenix' and 'Little Face', one of the two bonus tracks that came on the cd version. The album has been remastered, but the two bonus tracks are now missing. That's a pity as the second one, 'Judith' is good too. I'll stick to the original.
Sonic Temple has also been remastered, but apparently the track order has been jiggled about. I wish they'd leave such things alone. sad
Got to say I found Electric a very disappointing album though.
Billy Duffy is a very underrated guitarist. wink

I have to say i'm with you on the Sinatra Front , i love stuff like "That's life " & "Summer Wind " (especially after a curry!!)
I must also own up to seeing Motorhead in the 80's - TWICE!! Eddie Clark was an excellent guitarist ! Overkill - superb 4 minutes of mayhem!

I managed to finally get hold of a brand new copy (still sealed) of God Has Failed. Of course, you'd already sent me a copy of it, and I've played it loads, but I wanted the original, and now I have it. It's a great debut and probably my second favourite RPWL album, just behind the monumental Trying To Kiss The Sun.

I remember hearing this album when I bought it on recommendation from CD services (Dundee) in 2000 and it blew me away from start to finish. I like all the albums but prefer World through my eyes better than Trying to kiss the sun mainly as it is more varied and they leave the Floyd influence further behind and adopt a slightly Porcupine Tree feel to some of the songs (in a mellow way and not heavy as such). Still, super band.

I went to see Nik in Cambridge a couple of weeks ago and it was a great gig so I've been on a real Nik binge for the past few weeks. His more recent albums are especially good.

My ability to have access to this great music wouldn't be where it is today without the support and guidance of my loyal music-loving friends, and that includes you Carl wink Before coming to this board, my love for progressive rock was, and always had been, very strong, but I had no outlet. As far as I was concerned, the music industry had nothing of any substance left to offer. Ever since Nov introduced me to Spocks Beard about 3 years ago, and their vast scope of musical talent, along with The Flower Kings, I've been the recipient of more wonderful music than I ever imagined existed on the planet. My cup runneth over. I never knew there was so much wonderful music being made all around the world.

Well, I've got a lads night coming up so have been listening to the selected artists for the evening in order to pick a top 3.

So, I've been listening to:

John Cougar-Mellencamp
The Shins
Nik Kershaw
Double Albums

Plus, my friend Roger Henderson (www.myspace.com/rogerlhenderson) has just finished an album called "Taurus The Bull" and has sent me an advanced pressing to see what I think. So I've been listening to that a lot.

On the subject of double-albums, here are my top three tracks:

1) Genesis – The Chamber of 32 Doors from “The Lamb”

2) The Flower Kings – The Man Who Walked With Kings from “Stardust We Are” (don’t worry – I picked a short one!)

3) ELO - Standin’ In The Rain from “Out Of The Blue” (first song at the first gig I ever went to)

Can't say I've ever heard of the Shins, to be honest. As for John Cougar-Mellencamp - a mate of mine was well into him back in the eighties. He played me some and I quite liked it.

What's your mates album like? I mean, what genre, if any?

I hadn't either to be honest but the host (of the lads night) gets to choose a band or artist and Kev has chosen The Shins.

What happens is that he then sends everyone a CD by the band and we all listen to it and choose the best three tracks and these are all put together in a play-list that accompanies our cards game.

It's a great way of hearing new music.


Quote:

He's pretty straight-forward American rock, a bit like Tom Petty, but that's good every now and again.

We all went to see him at Hammy Odeon in the late 80s and it was fantastic - loads of energy.


Quote:

Imagine an English James Taylor wink

Roger's been in bands and writing music for years but has always balanced that with a full time career. He's now unfortunately on extended sick leave which has given him a bit of space to persue his music interests.

Well known West-End singer Steve Balsamo (also lead singer in The Storys) has sung one of Roger's compositions called "Well of Souls". This has also been put forward to the likes of Robbie Williams and Will Young as possible songs for their albums.

Here's Steve Balsamo singing that song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lAB4q2C-Mxg

Porcupine Tree - a new album has brought renewed interest.

Sylvan - The new album is very good indeed.

Santana - I have so many albums that have been gathering dust.

Quidam - some of the early stuff this time, love the Camel adaptations.

I made them all up!!

No, really, Ryan Adams has a following here in the states, kind of alternative rock with a dark country/folk tinge

Son Volt- The Jay Farrar remains of the old Uncle Tupelo (the other remnant is Jeff Tweedy, who has Wilco)

Human Highway is the Canadian concoction of Nick "Diamonds" Thorburn of Unicorns and Islands and Jim Guthrie, grandson to Woody Guthrie

Old 97s - just rockin' band from earlier in the 2000s that I like sometimes

Ted Leo - some punk, some rock, great energy

No, really, Ryan Adams has a following here in the states, kind of alternative rock with a dark country/folk tinge

Son Volt- The Jay Farrar remains of the old Uncle Tupelo (the other remnant is Jeff Tweedy, who has Wilco)

Human Highway is the Canadian concoction of Nick "Diamonds" Thorburn of Unicorns and Islands and Jim Guthrie, grandson to Woody Guthrie

Old 97s - just rockin' band from earlier in the 2000s that I like sometimes

Ted Leo - some punk, some rock, great energy


Thanks for the info Peng. Actually, if I really dig deep into the forgotten chambers of my old brain, I think I can vaguely recall the name Ryan Adams, but I think the only reason it's there at all is because I thought I'd misheard Bryan Adams!

Good to learn about all these other bands. smiley

You shouldn't knock it 'til you've tried it Col!

For some reason my Itunes has them down as 'Alternative & Punk' - not sure what genre they are to be honest - maybe sort of Quality-Grunge!

I borrowed their 2005 eponimous album from a friend at work one day when I wanted something different, last year and it's been a real favourite of mine ever since.
I fell in love with the first track instantly!, great track, great sound, great energy...

I genuinely do rate it! smiley

You absolutely cannot go wrong buying Chicago II. It's the ultimate feelgood album of 1970, their first after changing their name from Chicago Transit Authority.

Chicago VI is also very good. I've seen them live in concert many times, and you just really don't see consummate musicians like this around much anymore.

Much as I hate U2, I think it was good that Muse got the support slot on their recent US stadium tour. It gave them increased exposure over there and it seems they are now regularly selling out arenas and getting rave reviews. Who knows, but maybe they'll soon become a "stadium band" in the US like they are in the UK and many parts of Europe. smiley

As strange as it may seem, it definitely has elements of what I would call prog shocked. Although they aren't super-talented musicians, and they don't go for the whole complicated chord stuff, the album has a very strong concept (OK, nuclear warfare isn't terribly original but I think it's done really well) and the pieces are very linked and some have quite an avant-garde feel to them. They have lots of very atmospheric interludes between the main songs, and a very nice edit of a Martin Luther King Jr speech in the song "Wisdom, Justice and Love". I might go as far as to say that they've gone slightly Floydish shocked

I would at least say that it's definitely an album album, rather than a songs album. And none of that annoying "me me me" "the world hates me" stuff that clutters the rest of their albums cool The lyrics are in fact, for the main part, much better, if you can listen to them rap (Oh yes I didn't mention that there was some imo tasteful (shocked) rap in there) such things as "Try to catch up mother#!*&er!" or "I'm not a robot, I'm not a monkey, I will not dance even if the beat's funky". I could listen to the former all day...

So I would rank this new incarnation of Linking Park right up there with the best on my iPod, but others will of course disagree.

And yes, my other 4 bands have all been just slightly proggy this last month grin (I'm actually just discovering Rush and Yes you see)

And none of that annoying "me me me" "the world hates me" stuff that clutters the rest of their albums cool The lyrics are in fact, for the main part, much better, if you can listen to them rap (Oh yes I didn't mention that there was some imo tasteful (shocked) rap in there) such things as "Try to catch up mother#!*&er!" or "I'm not a robot, I'm not a monkey, I will not dance even if the beat's funky". I could listen to the former all day...

So I would rank this new incarnation of Linking Park right up there with the best on my iPod, but others will of course disagree.

And yes, my other 4 bands have all been just slightly proggy this last month grin (I'm actually just discovering Rush and Yes you see)

Cheers, excellent and surprising (to me) answer. wink

Not a huge, huge fan of Check Your Head actually. I'd say Paul's B is about 80 notches above their other stuff. Ill Communication is a distant second and then the other stuff is mostly interchangeable to me. Licensed to Ill is great for frat and beer parties where everyone's IQ collectively drops 100 points but just "ok" for sober, normal day-to-day listening.

As strange as it may seem, it definitely has elements of what I would call prog shocked. Although they aren't super-talented musicians, and they don't go for the whole complicated chord stuff, the album has a very strong concept (OK, nuclear warfare isn't terribly original but I think it's done really well) and the pieces are very linked and some have quite an avant-garde feel to them. They have lots of very atmospheric interludes between the main songs, and a very nice edit of a Martin Luther King Jr speech in the song "Wisdom, Justice and Love".

Wow, gotta give those guys credit for trying. I always thought their stuff was at least halfway decent for a "nu metal" band, and it's nice to hear of musicians at least attempt a more ambitious project like that these days.

I've been discovering The Beatles since then, so I've mainly been listening to them, with the inevitable contribution of my two favourite bands, Genesis and Pink Floyd and the odd spin of A Thousand Suns (that Linkin Park album). If I had to give a fifth artist, it would probably be Dream Theater.

Seeing as I'm still discovering (good) music, I don't really listen to a wide range of artists yet, as I can easily be satisfied by getting to know a few new albums.

Hopefully there'll be a brand new five after christmas!

Eclipse is great isn't it?My standout track is To Whom It May Concern,but all in all i think it's a great album.I saw them live a few weeks back and they were superb.Your right about Arnel Pineda bringing something to the table,first impressions were of a guy that just sounded like Perry,but he has his own stamp thats for sure.The same applies to Kelly Hansen from Foreigner aswell.Much more than a Lou Gramm soundalike.They too were on the same bill as Journey and were even more outstanding on the night.

The last month or so?

1. Anathema - We're Here Because We're Here
2. Gotye - various songs from Making Mirrors and Like Drawing Blood
3. Inner Ear Brigade - Rainbro
4. IOEarth - Moments
5. Balloon Astronomy - Balloon Astronomy

Of these, I think I like Gotye and Inner Ear Brigade the most. Just more my type of music, perhaps - or perhaps just because they're the most adventurous.

Thanks Dust. I think they go well anytime, but agree even more so when the weather is getting nicer.

I listen to most of those a lot, in part because the first three have so many bootleg shows or soundboards out there. It actually feels pretty cool when I get back to a studio release of one of them. wink

Yep! grin I particularly adore the trio of songs "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road", "This Song Has No Title" and the magnificent "Grey Seal". cool Three fab songs in a row.

I must say, however, I'm somewhat nonplussed as to how "Benny and the Jets" became a hit single... wink

I've been listening to Pandora radio.

Peter Gabriel station seems to be the best, and the U2 one.

(The Genesis one only knows the commercial stuff and Phil's solo career, the odd 'Solsbury Hill)




Today was really good on the PG station:

Led Zeppelin - Kashmir
U2- All I want is you (live acoustic)
Elbow - Lippy Kids
PG - (Live Blood version) IN YOUR EYES


I'm not sure if I can get pandora in Canada, anybody know?

I love the new Arena album, probably helped by the fact that Night Of The Demon was - and is - one of my favourite horror films from my youth. cool

Le Orme is my favourite of the Italian prog bands I've heard. I've got all their 70s albums, some are obviously better than others but I enjoy them all.

Being one of the so-called Big 3, Banco del Mutuo Soccorso naturally drew my attention when I was exploring the world of Italian prog. I've only listened to their music online, just sampling it. It's been a while but I think there was something about the singer's voice that turned me off.
Despite my reluctance, I've actually thought of giving them a chance, maybe picking up Darwin or the debut, and seeing how I feel listening to it in the car or on the stereo.

A very interesting post Witchwood; I know you like Le Orme, judging by your previously posted playlists. I find their music very nice indeed with the best albums being Felona E Sorona (also the English sung version, although I prefer their mother tongue version), Uomo Di Pezza, Collage and Contrappunti.....probably in that order of greatness.

But for me Banco are particularly impressive with a hugely listenable catalogue of studio and live albums. All of the albums from the 1970s are good, but the first 3 albums (s/t, Darwin! and Lo Sono nato Libero) are 5 star efforts. The fourth album is stunning too (Banco) whereby the band took some of the songs from albums 1 and 3 and sung them in English whilst at the same time adding one new song. Banco play some stunning music with the brothers Nocenzi playing masterful keyboards. These 4 albums are then followed by Garofano Rosso which, to be honest, is almost if not equally impressive.
The singer Francesco Di Giacomo (sadly RIP) has a very nice voice for me, so please persevere with him! Then the next album the band did an all instrumental set (...Di Terra) and it is amazing. Just as you think the music doesn't get any better then two live albums are must haves (No Palco from 2003 and Seguendo Le Tracce from 2005). What an incredible journey of music and I would love to see them live. Perhaps I will make the trip to Italy.

I am so impressed with Banco, perhaps even more-so than PFM, who I love dearly, probably because they have a greater consistency with their music. Some of the 80s albums are a bit weaker, but this doesn't put me off the band whatsoever!

Enjoy the albums Witchwood. I have just ordered some rated DVDs to sample the live atmosphere as best as is possible without seeing the band live. I am certainly going to enjoy them!

Neil Diamond was one of the first artists, I became a fan of, when I was very young. My older brother had the album "Just For You", which is one of my all time favorite albums. I remember sitting in my brother`s room at weekends, when he came home from university and listen to it. In 1972, my brother also bought "Hot August Night", which I appreciated in the same way. Just the other day, I listened to it again by headphones and was struck again, how perfectly performed and produced the album is. Definitely one of the finest live albums around.

I must confess, that I am not really interested in Neil`s later work, because he quit playing rock and roll and started writing soft pop. The only albums, I might get interested in, are the more recent ones produced by Rick Rubin, who also did a great job with Johnny Cash.

Neil Diamond is fantastic songwriter, singer and performer and obviously a very polite and gentle man.

The Rick Rubin albums - 12 Songs, Home Before Dark as well as Melody Road which was produced by Don Was - are brilliant. No more soft pop. It's Diamond playing guitar & writing stripped down personal songs, similar to what Rubin did with Cash as you said. There are some wonderful songs on all three albums.
