Quite a bit of Pantera today. NIN, too.

At the rate audio tech has advanced(shrunk), you're lucky anything gets released on vinyl, IMO. Not that I'm knocking vinyl. Out of curiousity, do you live on a ground floor?

Well, if you can get a totally audiophile'd-out system and keep your records in good condition, they will sound billions of times better than CDs ever will. Then again, with much of what I listen to, the production values are so low that it doesn't even matter. Either way, there is still a whole lot of music that is released only on vinyl, or on both CD and vinyl. I just wish this release in particular had been pressed on vinyl, like almost all of their other releases. And yes, I live on a ground floor...actually, I live sub-level. The bottom three or four feet of my apartment are underground, with windows along the top half.

Depends. My automatic answer would be the one I'm listening to now: NYC Ghosts & Flowers. Not exactly the most accessible of theirs, but easily my favorite. A safer bet might be Goo.

hmm, when I think of Sonic Youth I think of:

Dirty
Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star
Washing Machine


A Thousand Leaves is one of my favorite, still trying to get used to Sonic Nurse

Looks like there's going to be no consensus on this...

I like the full-length better than the EP (I have it on CD. Unfortunately, no record player). But that split with Promise Ring is awesome--both sides.

Pete Townshend and Ronnie Lane Rough Mix
one of the best unappreciated albums of all times.
Got it the LP at 1/2 priced books for $3.98 in minty condition.

The LP has a few songs I skip over...still a solid record, though. Unfortunately I only have that and the 7" in MP3 form. I plan on buying both, but no one wants to trade/sell either of them, none of the stores around here stock them, and I really hate ordering from Revelation. Right now all I own is the split 7" with The Promise Ring, which I think is probably the single best split of that style...maybe the Christie Front Drive / Boys Life 10", but it's pretty even. I actually got that record for The Promise Ring's side, but ended up liking the Texas is the Reason side just as much. Both great bands, although anything by The Promise Ring after the Thirty Degrees Everywhere LP is unlistenable.

I was never a fan of Boys Life. I like the Christie side of that split. I haven't listened to the Christie full-length in awhile. I'll do that tomorrow. I only have their first. Have you heard the second? Are they in any new bands?

If you pm me your address, I'll burn you the TITR full length and EP, but that doesn't sound like what you are looking for.

The second LP is their best work, in my opinion. Long songs, very poppy or laid-back. Not aggressive at all like the first LP. My personal favourite song is "Bag," which was on two compilations.

Eric was in Antarctica (deceased), which is very Shoegazey stuff. Good music for chilling out. His new band is The 101, which is like a mix between Christie Front Drive, Antarctica, and...I dunno, lots of people say the Beach Boys, but I can barely hear any influence. Catchy as hell riffs, though. You can check out an MP3 from their LP, which is really truly great, right here. That song is the most CFD-like of the album, but not the best. Most of the other songs are midtempo, with super poppy bass lines and drumming, and really fuzzed out guitars. Definitely more poppy or laid-back than the song Riptide has an MP3 of. I think if Christie Front Drive had continued after 1997, they would've ended up sounding like this. They just finished pressing the CD version of the LP, and you can get it for $9.50 PPD. I can really see this band end up getting big...like major label big. The other guys from CFD have been in various other bands, most notably The Blue Ontario.

And thanks for the offer, but I don't really like CDs, and don't own a CD player other than my computer. I appreciate it, though. If you'd like some tapes or a CD (if I can find some blanks) of anything you might be into, feel free to ask. My tastes are mostly in the mid-90s Hardcore area, but I like or own records of just about any genre, really.
