Re: How many CDs/Recordings Have Your Purchased?

Yorks, I replied to your Pineapple Thief post on another thread. I don't check the threads, I just hit reply

Since you like Porcupine Tree (Lightbulb Sun's my fave) and you like the Thief, have you tried Sigur Ros? Another band with similar threads.

http://www.sigur-ros.co.uk/band/disco/agaetis.php

Agaetis Byrjun is an excellent CD they issued earlier. You can listen on the Moon, or go to the website and download "Olsen Olsen" to start...see what you think.

And, just to clear up any confusion...it's a male vocalist and it's all sung in Icelandic.

"Olsen olsen" is in sung in "Hopelandic", the artificial "language" the band invented for their music (interesting idea).

AB is a great. I found it through the Moon.

There is some information about it in the FAQ on their website:

http://www.sigur-ros.co.uk/band/faq.php:
what language does jónsi sing in?

Re: How many CDs/Recordings Have Your Purchased?

For the record, it's not actually a language. Here's that FAQ copied/pasted:

what language does jónsi sing in?
on the first three albums (von, von brigđi, ágćtis byrjun), jónsi sang most songs in icelandic but two of them (von and olsen olsen) were sung in 'hopelandic'. all of the vocals ( ) are however in hopelandic. hopelandic (vonlenska in icelandic) is the 'invented language' in which jónsi sings before lyrics are written to the vocals. it's of course not an actual language by definition (no vocabulary, grammar, etc.), it's rather a form of gibberish vocals that fits to the music and acts as another instrument. jónsi likens it with what singers sometimes do when they've decided on the melody but haven't written the lyrics yet. many languages were considered to be used on ( ), including english, but they decided on hopelandic. hopelandic (vonlenska) got its name from first song which jónsi sang it on, hope (von).

Welll, It's just like drugs really, I can't stop. I heard Lizard from Poland for the first time and went mad and ordered on the spot all thier 4 cd's well knowing my wife will really do me as funds are rather low at the moment.

But hell it's only Christmas once a year

So let me get this straight...if you're low on funds your wife will "do you"?

Is this some sort of reverse marital prostitution?

And can I use that for a band name?

Re: How many CDs/Recordings Have Your Purchased?

What a great thread! Although I had to put myself in the 1-5 catagory, I'm sure this will grow. I had been away from AM since last summer, just a pain to have headphones on. But I am planning some monitors here shortly. Ironic that as I read this post, I was contemplating the 0 answer when they just played a cut off Quake by Den Fule. I IMMEDIATELY looked this up and will order ASAP! And wouldn't you know it, it's a Swedish band! For some reason, Sweden has been a great source of music!

Some recent purchases:

Forgas Band Phenomena -Soleil 12 (thanks to a sampler a friend sent me)
Miriodor- Parade + Live ( " )
Djam Karet ( " )
Permanent Vacation (found on CDBaby.com by search for "sounds like": Bruford)
Allan Holdsworth- Road games (cause it's got Jeff Berlin)
Allan Holdsworth- 16 Men of Tain (after seeing him live this month)
Lady Lake- Supercleananddreammachine (www.ladylake.nl)

And... because I was wondering about what ever happened to Eddie Jobson, I found this beauty: Voices of Life (http://www.globemusic.com/) Done by the Bulgarian Women's Choir. Want to hear something completely different? Here it is! These are mostly classical Bulgarian pieces, though there is a tune by Jobson and one by Tony Levin. THis has been one of my favorite new acquisitions...I love choral music, but I love Levin and Jobson, and with the Burgarian Womens' Choir, it's orgasmic to the ears! I wish they had more cuts like the two.

And how can I forget one of my most important discoveries, Bela Fleck! His Live at the Quick DVD is phenominal!

1)Which one? The Devouring is my fav, but almost all are great.

2) Aerosmith?

3) Do you have "Players"? A find for me in college, I've played it on the show and it should be on the Moon. Berlin, T Lavitz, Scott henderson, and Steve Smith..

4) There's some tease of that on Kate Bush's "Sensual World"..gotta check that out...

Re: How many CDs/Recordings Have Your Purchased?

1) Ha! You got me on #1. I lent it to my friend, but I think the song I got it for was Indian Summer?

2) http://cdbaby.com/cd/permanent http://cdbaby.com/cd/permanent2

3) No, but after seeing him live I've decided I need to get anything with his fingerprints on it. I just ordered http://cdbaby.com/cd/riptyde

4) If you like choral music, you'll love it. But if you're looking for that Jobson sound, you will only get that on one track. I like them all. There's even about a minute of Brufford on the first track...just enough to say he was there too!

5) and of course, I need to recommend our collective work here as well (well, I DID buy a copy too ;-) ) http://cdbaby.com/cd/gianthour

Re: How many CDs/Recordings Have Your Purchased?

The Devouring is in my top 10 records ever....i think Indian Summer is off the latest "recollection harvest"

The Players is straight fusion, just excellent.

I pasted your shortcut....

ambient: Collaborator, another I can't remember now

half and half: Ritual, Descencion, SNCP, Harvest

Players should be available..

Re: How many CDs/Recordings Have Your Purchased?

Well, I just had a couple more things I ordered show up.

Advent- Cantus Firmus (Great stuff with great vocals, Genesis, Gentle Giant influence)
Jens Johansson- Fission (Hot Swedish Fusion)
Riptyde- Sonic Undertow (with Allan Holdsworth) (Interesting combination of hip hop style w/prog, Holdsworth makes it work)

Re: How many CDs/Recordings Have Your Purchased?

The two Riverside CDs and Chance's "Escape to Horizon" have just tipped me over the 200 Cds bought as a direct result of listening to Aural Moon.

Pam has now definitely taken away the Credit cards and locked them in a safe to which only she knows the combination. However before she took them away I managed to program the details into PayPal and Amazon........... .

And here I always called Pam 'Long Suffering' as a joke! I had no idea I was being PROPHETIC!

Oh, maybe I had a few clues. But still.

The majority of my CD purchases have been made because of Aural Moon.

Re: How many CDs/Recordings Have Your Purchased?

I purchased Salem Hill Mimi's Magic Moments a few months ago as a result of last years top Albums but never got round to listening to it until a couple of weeks ago. Haven't listened to anything else since!!!
