I really love the Boris that I have heard. Do you have any recommendations for which of these discs you suggest I grab next?

Gary, cool. I figured it would do the trick, bro.
John, once I started getting into Boris I wanted everything. But since I saw you were listening to "Absolutego" - one of their drone masterpieces - I'd go for one of their "variety" albums next - "Akuma no Uta" or "Pink." Then "Flood" and "Feedbacker."
Sal, I'll probably get in touch re. Instrument; looks like it might be tough to find.

Porcupine Tree - Stars Die. The Delerium Years 1991-1997
Wow, this is really good stuff. Had heard two songs from these cats on Pandora some time back and was impressed by them enough to pick this up.
I guess the best way to describe them is futuristic prog rock. Imagine taking Radiohead, Pink Floyd, early Rush, and throwing them into a blender. Add a dash of the Beatles, and just a pinch of the Pet Shop Boys, and perhaps just a tiny drop of Vangelis(this should sell Rootz immediately).
Blend using the hard rock setting.
Pour out into a foggy, bizarrely back-lit club that would fit perfectly in the movie Blade Runner.
Add nice mellow buzz from your source of choice. And listen.
That about sums up this two disc set.

What shall we say, shall we call it by a name
As well to count the angels dancing on a pin
Water bright as the sky from which it came
And the name is on the earth that takes it in
We will not speak but stand inside the rain
And listen to the thunder shout
I am, I am, I am, I am
Blue are the life-giving waters taken for granted,
They quietly understand
Once happy turquoise armies lay opposite ready,
But wonder why the fight is on
But they're all bold as love, yeah, they're all bold as love
Yeah, they're all bold as love
Just ask the axis

I imagine this all the time.

De harder dey come...
One of my bandmates is into this group. He went to see them recently. I was impressed by what he played for me, though they sometimes lapse into a harsher modern rock groove that I don't like as much.

It took me a long time to warm up to that album, Groovz. It is so far out there when compared to his other albums. A true oddity. But, I have grown to appreciate it quite a bit. Though I do still feel it is for hardcore Hornsby fans only.
The Porcupine Tree material on this two disc set is all over the place. But they rarely lapse into any modern rock. From what I know of them, that is more of a recent interest of theirs.
But this set is really outstanding.

Hey Groovz, did you check out the video at that link for Harbor Lights? The tune is completely different than what's on the album.
Got kind of a cool little groove to it though.

Why are people listing jazz recordings on this thread. I thought the point with this thread was to list music that is NOT jazz.
Whatīs the point with TWO "what are you listening threads" when people are listing both jazz and "other music" in both threads?
I guess itīs time to skip one of the threads and only have one in the future.
April-10th-2006, 07:33 AM
It wasn't ever our point is why. The web at least is still, for the moment anyway, free space.

Some kinds of love

Between thought and expression lies a lifetime
Situations arise because of the weather

I'm the face.
Like many people here, I tend to listen to a variety of genres in a given day. I don't see the point of listing only the non-jazz stuff here and only the jazz stuff in the WAYLTN thread. I think it's more interesting to see what people are pairing with their jazz.

Iīm confused. The original WAYLTN has always been an eclectic mix of stuff and as I understand this thread was created because some people wanted a listening-thread with only non-jazz recordings. I have always been oposed to that idea. I want a thread with all kinds of musical genres and the original thread have always been that so I donīt understand the idea with this thread at all now when people are listing both jazz and non-jazz because thatīs what we have been doing all the time in the old thread and itīs much more impractical and time-consuming with two threads to read than one.

....but of course I am not the one to tell other people what to post or where to post it.
Like Gary said, the web is free space, but I remember that Gary himself was raising the same questions that I do now a couple of months ago but of course everybody can and has the right to change his mind.
Itīs not a very big deal but since the WAYLTN thread is almost the only thread I post on these days I think this have making JC a little less fun for me to visit.
April-11th-2006, 12:36 AM
is it really so much harder to click on two threads, laz?
April-11th-2006, 02:28 AM
No, I guess not.
