Never got into Mirage. I might come back to it later on and see if I change my mind, but the first couple listens didn't do anything for me. :)

 

I definitely recommend Genesis. I haven't listened to any of their later stuff, so I don't know whether I would like what they turned into or not, but Selling England By The Pound and Foxtrot are great albums. Selling England By The Pound is rated higher, but I've always preferred Foxtrot.

 

I've only listed to In The Court Of The Crimson King so far from King Crimson (I actually listed to it a long time ago, but never got to their other stuff), but it was epic (except Moonchild ... bleh :unsure: )

 

Tech/Extreme Prog I listen to (also some Experimental/Post metal thrown in there, I think :wub: I'm not the best with discerning between genres):

 

Opeth

Mastodon (though they wear on me after a while)

Between The Buried And Me

Devin Townsend

Maudlin of the Well

 

I don't think any of that is considered technical death. :huh:

 

Also, do you listen to Jethro Tull?

I know who he is but I haven't gotten to him yet. Some album called Thick as A Brick I believe, will have to hear sometime soon. :]

 

And I like Opeth, BTBAM, and Mastodon, know how Devin Townsend is, but always hear about Maudline, haven't gotten into yet. Didn't their members go form Kayo Dot or something?

 

Auto-tune is what's ruining today's music. It's an industry standard now, so it's logical to assume that music will continously go down hill from probably the best era of music in the 1970s-1980s..

 

Auto-tune used right is great.

 

From what I heard on the links on the sidebar, the autotune made him sound worse.

I like Mastodon too! :mellow:

 

Also, cjgone, I listened to Selkies: The Endless Obsession by Between the Buried and Me. It was really good. I'll be sure to delve deeper into them.

BTBAM is a fun listen to and Selkies is probably my favorite song by them, though Colors, the album, is their best collection of music. :wub:

 

 

 

Meh.. I can't listen to muse after Absolution. Origin of symmetry was their high point and everything has been going down hill from there.

Does anyone here listen to The Dear Hunter? Right now they're making an EP for every major color named Color Spectrum EP. I'm psyched and interested to hear how each color will sound.

My indie-loving friend from school adores them, never listened to them much though.

They're less indie and more progressive, but your friend is a very smart person. If you're interested in music with a story, somewhat like Coheed and Cambria, I would check these guys out. So far, they have released 3 out of 6 LPs that chronicle the birth of a boy all the way to his death. It is very interesting to say the least.

I've heard a song of them and it was really good. Any suggestions as to what to listen to by them?

Act I-III :huh:

 

Honestly though, I would definitely start from Act I. It sets the stage for the world and its overarching themes. The plot is very linear so skipping around songs might make you lose the point. However, that's not to say that individual songs are bad.

 

Here are my favorite songs from Act I-III, respectively:

The main topic was Dear Hunter, and you were talking about Coheed and Cambria that were mentioned once?

harkhark. Clarify silly man.

He said "like Coheed and Cambria, you should check these guys out." So I thought he was talking about Coheed and Cambria. Silly me.

I listened to the first one and it was decent enough. I don't really see the similarities to Coheed though, heh.

When I compared them to Coheed, I meant conceptually, not musically. Both bands weave a story with their albums through different Acts.

I really like the piano a lot.

Like A LOT.

I really didn't like the other parts of it though ):

Piano was almost enough to make me get them all, the piano is awesome.

piano. piano. piano.

They're just a really dark band. Not my style I guess.

I can see why you say that. The plot is pretty morbid at some points, but overall it's quite interesting. I would go into more detail, but I'm sure it would be a bore.

I mean don't get me wrong, I don't dislike the songs. I feel like I would skip them a lot in my library though. As I had said before, the lyrics really were a turn off for me. And the wide variety of instruments is great. Just the concept of a wide variety of instruments, make me think of Sufjan Stevens, too.

Super bump on the John Wayne Gacy Jr. discussion.

 

Ramon was right in the first place. ): Song wasn't really deep at all. It's just about... him

""On my best behavior, I am really just like him."

 

We all have the potential for monstrous acts and insanity. And Gacy, even though he did evil things, was able to easily wear a mask of a normal, well-liked person. Meaning, "on everyone's best behavior," outward appearances are sometimes indistinguishable between good people and bad people."

 

So really when he says "On my best behavior, I am really just like him," it's just saying that John Wayne Gacy was appearing to act normal.

 

I guess when Stevens says "Look underneath the floorboards, for the secrets I have hid," He's just saying:

"How do you know that I'm not just like John Wayne Gacy?"

Your interpretation though is far too simplistic, we're discussing poetry here :huh:

 

There are a couple of lines that give it away.

 

"Rotting fast/in their sleep/of the dead

Twenty-seven people/even more/teenage boys/with their cars, summer jobs

Oh my God

Are you one of them?"

 

He doesn't even really mean becoming like Gacy at all—he is talking about being seduced by evil, not being blind to it. Gacy seduced his victims, and that is the allusion Stevens makes with his line "[a]re you one of them?"
