God u r lik the all knowing when is comes to music i mean i know some stuff but geez i would have never know that.

I don't buy CDs very much these days unless they're for indie labels with no attachments to corporations.   Largely because the money that your paying, about 90% is going to record companies and they're spending money on artists that they think will make them a sh*tload of money.

It's been a scandal of sorts lately in Universal.  Bands like And You Will Know As The Trail of Dead left the label because the funds they were supposed to have for their next record was squandered because Interscope records chief Jimmy Iovine is using their money along with the advance money that's supposed to go to lesser-known artists to fund a super-duper solo project for the singer of the Pussycat Dolls (that's still not out). 

Queens of the Stone Age are upset by this as well but they can't leave Interscope due to contractual obligations. 

It's a terrible industry and I don't recommend signing to a major label.  They're liars, they're cheats, and all they want is to make top dollar and take credit for your success.

That's why you have acts like NIN, Radiohead, Paul McCartney, Hall & Oates, Prince, and later, Madonna working without record labels and going on their own.  And they can do it because they have the money and a loyal fanbase.

Ditto.

Oh, I picked up Liam Finn's debut album (came out last year, I'm slow), yesterday. I'm really enjoying that.  Grin

They're the one's I've got.

It's become rather interesting to me, the change in how music has evolved over the years. I'm not just talking about my own lifetime either. I'm talking about how music has come and gone. There are bands that everyone knows about, that were making their debut in the 50's, 60's, and 70's, and even the 80's and everyone still knows them and most enjoy listening to them. Then, there are the bands that have come around and were big during the 90's and 2000's and haven't stayed long and were gone before they began. There are bands that almost every teen worships for a short while then they're on to someone else. There are bands that make a big break into the 'scene' whatever seen that may be, and they leave their mark and move on. It's just interesting to me how music has changed and how bands are coming and going a lot more frequently than they had in the past. Not saying that's good or bad, not attempting to make fun of or make light of any one's particular music tastes. People have their taste in music, they like what they like for reasons that only they know true. And that's fine and dandy. Music is what it is for everyone individually and that's the way it should be. It's just an interesting timeline and frequency of changes in what's hot and what's not - whos' who and all. Just an observation that I had, that I'm not quite sure makes sense down on 'paper' now looking at this. I apologize for the unclear thoughts this post has made.

Now we're talking!  No offense to pwrofluv, but another thing about music is it is quiite subjective.  I really would rather eat green beans for 5 hours straight than listen to some of those songs you listed.  Frankly, I have never heard of most of them.  Similarly, if I listed 40 of my favorite songs, you would probably rather eat spinach than listen to them.  Like I keep saying, there is something for everyone.  I think the biggest difference here is age and gender.  Most of the guys on the thread are a bit older and most of the girls on the thread are younger.  Us guys really have no interest in tween music like the Jonas Bros.  I did listen to that stuff back in the day when I was a young teen, but not any more.  My tastes have changed.  I think we can all agree to disagree and accept that we all don't necessarily have to like the same types of music. 

Now, to totally disregard what I just said there...haha, here is what I picked up this weekend at my favorite record store, and last week in some "used" bins around town.  I needed new musc, was in a rut, had some money burning in my pocket and decided, what the heck. 

The Mountain Goats - We Shall All Be Healed I got it to reflect on things and for track 6...your belgian things, such a beautiful song
Fleet Foxes - Fleet Foxes this was in the used bin, can you believe it?  Score!
Ray LaMontagne - Trouble Another reflective cd and I like most of his stuff, another used bin find
Metallica - And Justice For All heck yeah!
Metallica - Master of Puppets double heck yeah!
My Brightest Diamond - Bring Me the Workhorse wow, very good and another used bin find.  I cant believe what some people get rid of
The Hold Steady - Seperation Sunday fun to listen to
Starflyer 59 - Everybody Makes Mistakes my friends like 'em so I thought I would try it out.  So far so good
Destroyer - Destroyer's Rubies I like me some destroyer!
Say Hi To Your Mom - Ferocious Mopes love it love it love it, nerdy fun!
The Early Years - The Early Years good good stuff
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - Howl nice and bluesy.

I can't stand the Jonas Bros.  They claim to be a band when really, it's just three boys trying to rock.  Hanson were better than them. 

Ah, somebody likes early Metallica!!!  Yeah!  The new album better not suck like the last one.  Master of Puppets is still my favorite.

I've got Fleet Foxes in queue to download.  I can't afford CDs anymore.  Especially since my old local used CD store, that I used to hang out at every weekend went out of business 2 years ago.  That's where I also bought DVDs including a 3-disc box set of La Dolce Vita and Criterion DVDs for George Washington, The Element of Crime, and my last ever purchase at the store, The Man Who Fell to Earth

indiecoffee, I respect you because you understand that everyone has different music taists and you're polite about it.

But a few of the guys on here AREN'T polite about it! They seem to always have to insult bands they don't like for no good reason! Just say you don't like it and get on with it. But don't insult the band by saying specifically what you don't like in a mean way, because it has a way of offending the people who like those bands. Like me!!

Thanks for letting me vent. And I hope some of you take it to heart.
