I'd like to hear some more german music (good music, not "schlager" stuff), I know there's plenty around. I especially like german (and other languages than english) rap but I don't think there's too many people that share my taste. It's odd that in the usa rap seems to have become "pop" while in other countries it is still very much "protest" music.
Lol, ever hear of Public Enemy? You're right tho really most US rap has lost it's message these days, kinda sad.

|Led Zeppelin - Kashmir|
(Aug 26, 2006 - 00:41)
Well, Jimmy Page even helped him do it...
That's disturbing.. I used to not mind PD until I heard that ripoff.. He musta been some kinda salesman to get Page to sign off on it. That ripoff was right up there with that no talent pretentious alternateen band that covered Another Brick in the Wall..

|Sam Phillips - Holding on to the Earth|
(Aug 24, 2006 - 04:58)
Was she the Phillips from "Wilson Phillips"? Doesn't really sound like it.
That's becaus Wilson Phillips sucked more than I can ever express in words, but this chick sounds like a whacked out version of the Bangles..

(Aug 12, 2006 - 01:56)
And for the record:
I am a woman.
I do NOT have Madonna, Vanilla Ice, Sting, Milli Vanilli or posters of whoever else on my walls. For the record, I only have a nice, professionally framed poster of Pearl Jam Yield tour because it was a great visual statement.
I like my job, it's just that our busy time fluctuates.
So I don't like Pink Floyd, BIG FREAKING DEAL!
Get over yourselves!
You sure there's not some New Kids on the Block in there? j/k
|Bottle Rockets - Idiot's Revenge|

I would most definitely chuck a beer bottle at this band in concert..

|Lindsey Buckingham - Go Insane|
(Aug 09, 2006 - 23:07)
I always knew he was an amazing guitar player, but didn't realize how much until I saw him perform "Big Love" by himself in one of the reunion concerts. His technique and ability blew me away.
Big Love.. freakin awesome. blew me away the first time I heard it
|Led Zeppelin - Since I've Been Loving You|
(Aug 09, 2006 - 17:41)
|I am currently obsessed with this song. I've got the BBC Sessions version and the Remasters version. I just can't get over the intense emotion of the song, especially in the BBC Sessions version. I've been trying to just listen to Bonham because his playing in this song is purely inspirational. The timing of everything is freakin perfect. That said it also almost brings me to tears how pure the vocals and guitar playing come across. Simply amazing. The Remasters version allows you to single out Bonham a little more. The BBC Sessions version is just ridiculous as far as the vocals and guitar playing go. It's impossible to listen to and not be awestruck with how well Paige and Plant perform in that version. For anyone who thinks Led Zepplin is fluff you really should listen to this song and you will be changed forever. If not you're completely hopeless and should go listen to pop music somewhere all by yourself.. Seriously, if you've never heard the BBC Sessions version of this song you should go right now and check it out. It's that incredible.
PS to you other 2 guys - you know what I'm talkin about, this song is a thing of absolute beauty.
|The Shins - Pink Bullets|
(Aug 09, 2006 - 02:42)
|pink bullets sound kinda phallic if ya ask me. oh wait, nobody asked me..too bad |
|Led Zeppelin - No Quarter|
(Aug 09, 2006 - 02:35)
Much as I love this song (which is a LOT) I actually prefer the amazing cover Tool did of this that adds all kinds of new dimensions to an already great song.
whoah! Tool did a cover of this song? This is one of my fav Zep tunes. I'll definitely have to check it out. Hopefully they did it justice as Zep and Floyd are two bands I consider sacred and take great offense when someone has the poor taste to think that they can remake a classic.
|Led Zeppelin - Travelling Riverside Blues|
(Aug 09, 2006 - 02:32)
|This song is smooth. I really like the whole BBC Sessions set. Most of it isn't the cleanest cuts they've ever done, but the raw emotion is just overpowering throughout. I really think it captures the essence of the band better than anything short of a real live performance. I'm so envious of those who were around during their heyday and had a chance to see em live.|
|Led Zeppelin - Whole Lotta Love|
(Aug 09, 2006 - 02:24)
|All I have to say is - John Bonham is the baddest mofo that ever lived. Even if the rest of the song wasn't godlike, which it is, John's drum playing would be one of the most impressive things to ever hear. The man could play,without equal hands down. I would give my left *** to hear him play live.
|David Gilmour - Smile|
(Aug 07, 2006 - 15:21)
Instead it's David Gilmour singing a lullaby to his grand-kids. Maybe it will grow on me.
|The Doors - When The Music's Over|
(Aug 07, 2006 - 14:23)
|sigh..The pretentiousness was on purpose. Jim was mocking the very people that supported him. There's a big difference in trying to be sincere and coming off as pretentious versus doing it out of frustration. One way you look pathetic the other you look like an ass. At least be honest about it. When he wanted to be good his writing was out of this world.|

|Led Zeppelin - The Battle of Evermore|
(Aug 05, 2006 - 02:47)
I'm glad to see a range of opinions here. I've taken a lot of flak for it over the years, but from behind the anonymity of my keyboard I'll say it:
I hate Led Zeppelin and always have. Their pretentious, slick, and glossy interpretation of the blues turns my stomach.
We're all entitled to our own opinions and in my opinion, your opinion sucks.
|Sinéad O'Connor - You Made Me The Thief Of Your Heart|
(Aug 05, 2006 - 01:05)
|Actually her politics aren't really off base..How many wars have been waged in the name religion? It's understandable to deny the truth about something that you hold so much faith in.
And no, I'm not an athiest. I have my faith, but I absolutely hate the way religion has been perverted to suit the needs of power hungry rat bastards.
|Nirvana - All Apologies|
(Aug 04, 2006 - 23:41)
Maybe I'm just a simple country boy, but I'm really trying to think of a single thing that Nirvana changed about the face of music. Maybe you had to be there.
yes, you had to be there.
excellent song - played this to death back in the day and still love it

|Pearl Jam - Black|
(Aug 04, 2006 - 23:09)

|Natalie Merchant - This House Is On Fire|
(Aug 04, 2006 - 04:11)
I don't know, the arrangement of those strings and her voice (which I usually like) on top of the regggae groove just isn't working for me. It's like putting fish sauce on penne with vodka. Some combinations are better left alone.
I agree, something just doesn't fit here.
|Sting - Mad About You|
(Aug 04, 2006 - 03:38)

Horde Fest rocked! I went to the 94' show at Polaris Point in Columbus..Talk about a hell of a show.

|Björk - New World|
(Aug 02, 2006 - 00:52)
Bjork is without a doubt the most rubbish artist of all time. She is the audio equivalent of those modern art paintings one sees that are just a stripe of black across a white canvas. Let's face it - she is only famous because of novelty value in where she comes from and because she acts strangely. If she was from Podunc Idaho she would be (appropriately) institutionalised by now.
some people just don't get it. Let me guess, you think Jackson Pollock is a hack too?

|Gomez - All Too Much|
(Aug 01, 2006 - 10:50)
|Don't think Gomez will ever be compared to Barkley. They're both just another band tryin to make it in an ADD world. Pretty much the same as it's ever been.

He died November 25 1974.
Most reports suggest that he accidentally overdosed on his prescription meds. Some folks suggest that it was suicide. The biography that I saw here in Canada on TVO said that he got up in the night to get some cornflakes and took more anti-depressants by mistake.
Brilliant musician, such beatiful music..
not sure it's possible to OD on ad's, but then I'm no expert..I'm guessin downers/muscle relaxers/pain killers/etc..hell ketamine anyone?

get over it guys. the saps are 0 compared to PF. they will be forgotten in 10 years, if not sooner.
PF and DSOTM are timeless. these guys...haha.. right.
Dude, comparing anyone to Pink Floyd is pointless. I agree. I absolutely love Floyd. Radiohead shouldn't have to be compared to them. They should be compared to the bands of their era the same as Floyd is to theirs..
