Ever since I was introduced to "Future" I've liked him. And after getting more and more, it's absolutely brilliant to listen to. Relaxing, pleasant, good lyrics. It's something that does not disturb me even when I've had a stressy day and need silence.

So thoughts and comments?

I agree on pretty much everything. The lyrics are really important to me, and these are GOOD. I just love it.

Aw, my new love <3

And so far, I'm still sticking with "I'm your man" as my favourite.

Hallelujah is a nice song.

He is like drunken mafioso singing on the beach and bitches all around him.

The Song of the Week for that one is too old to get any downloads from it.

I don't have any albums, just a greatest hits that I bought in Holland for like 5 euros. But I can recommend Chelsea Hotel#2, The Sisters of Mercy, and Lover, Lover, Lover.

My all time favorite though is "Diamonds in the Mine". Clearly his best.

The only songs I know by him were the ones used in the Natural Born Killers soundtrack. I really liked them but never bothered checking anything else out by him. What's a good place to start?

I like the Ten New Songs album. By the Rivers Dark is nice or My Secret Life.

Who by?

Oh, and the best is either Future, Hallelujah, or Take This Waltz.

Future

That song is awesome. Does he have other stuff in that style? The songs Sim mentioned were alright but weren't what I was looking for.

You've recommended. Future was too good so I hesitated for a long time to get other songs.

I definitely agree with all you said in your first post too, I love how relaxing it all sounds.

You people suck. =,0(

None of the other songs in here are anywhere near as awesome as Future or Waiting for the Miracle. Even his voice sounds totally different in those other songs.

Which ones did you get, Josh?

05-25-2006, 03:17 PM
Hallelujah, By the Rivers Dark, My Secret Life, and Take This Waltz. None of them even approach Future in style. Some of them are along the same lines of Waiting for the Miracle, just not as dark.

Any man who puts "Give me crack and anal sex" and "Destroy another fetus now" together in a single song is god. That man is Leonard Cohen. Ergo, Leonard Cohen is god.

"Give me crack and anal sex"
This would be my user title if possible. His music for McCabe & Mrs. Miller is great too.

I guess it's hard for a song to reach the awesomeness of The Future. It sets a standard a little high. So I can't really recommend a song which is like Future. But from what I have heard I really like the rest too.

I bought the Future a while ago. I dont like it that much. His voice is terrible, and the "gospel" singers make it really campy. Songs of Love and Hate is a much better album.
