So, my Bob Dylan thread gave me an idea. If you want to listen to a band and get into them, but don't know where to start, this is the thread for you to ask, instead of having to make a new thread every time.

I personally don't have anything to ask right now, but I wanted to make the thread before I forgot.

You should definitely check out all of the big names.

Thelonious Monk
John Coltrane
Miles Davis
Wes Montgomery

Les Paul

Some of those are spread out across a couple decades, so you should listen to more than just one of them.

The only song I really know is "Barbie Girl" and I say it's dance/techno.
Although I don't know much about the artist Cirrus, but I think the song "The Answer" is kinda catchy. It's a dance song.

There's this one funky song on Everyday that I like, but I don't know what it's called, so just listen to the whole album and if there's a good song on it, THAT's the one

Beware: the man (Dave) does some truly horrendous things with his voice at times, and they (the Matthews Band) have a bad habit of jamming endlessly that will probably bore you and they like to totally ruin a nice, somber dark mood with a completely out-of-place happy part. Other than that, they're fine, but I never get the urge to listen to them.

For Public Enemy, you could think about getting Power To The People And The Beats which is their greatest hits. Or get It Takes Nations of Millions... or Fear Of A Black Planet.

NWA have a greatest hits cd too, but I'm sure you can get by with just Straight Outta Compton.

If you're talking about songs,

Public Enemy - Don't Believe The Hype, Bring The Noise, Fight The Power, 911 Is A Joke, Rebel Without A Pause.

NWA - Express Yourself, Fuck Da Police, Straight Outta Compton.

For Fugazi, most people reccommend Repeater + 3 Songs, and it seems to be a good one to start with.

For Reel Big Fish, Turn the Radio Off is the only one I actually listen to at all anymore, so I'd go with that.

where do I start if I want to play Metallica stuff on guitar ?
Thats depends on how long you've been playing and what you're already playing and if you mean full songs including solos, so I'll just give some general info.

As odd as it sounds punk is a good place to start to build up your metal rhythm guitar playing. Offspring kinda stuff even, fast palm mutes and that.
Secondly dont dive straight into Metallica, they arent exactly really hard (trying to not sound patronising here) but there is other bands, a tad similar and a tad easier, like Black Sabbath rhythm's. Black Sabbath were a slower band so their stuff is easier to learn (this applies to solos too).

If you get some Sabbath (or Led Zeppelin actually) songs down pretty well, eventually the faster stuff will come easier (this is for solos btw.)

Also, buy a wah pedal and start to suck really hard, then you'll sound like Kirk Hammet. (shh I'm kidding...sort of.)

Really though the main thing it comes down to is, practice, practice, and more practice.

nieh
08-04-2006, 12:38 PM
Fugazi - End Hits is the most easily accessible out of the ones I've heard, so try that first
Streetlight Manifesto - They only have two and there's not too much difference between them. Go for whichever you find first.
Reel Big fish - Anything but Cheer Up. It wasn't bad but it was more pop/punk with horns rather than their typical ska/punk/pop stuff
Everclear - They're all interchangeable and aren't really worth getting into. So much for the Afterglow sounds exactly like Songs from an American Movie right down to the way the tracks are laid out. Of those two, I'd recommend the latter though because I personally got absolutely sick of the hits on Afterglow which made almost half the album worthless.
Minus The Bear - They Make Beer Commercials Like This is my favorite (it's just an EP though).

Get Everything Goes Numb. It's actually their only full length album with songs they wrote on it.

pearl jam

TEN! That's the first Pearl Jam album you get. Another good album to start off with is Rearviewmirror (Greatest Hits 1991-2003), although most greatest hits albums are terrible, this has 2 discs (33 songs) and covers their career pretty well. I'd also get the new album as that's pretty damn good.

That's not entirely true. All of the songs on both albums were written by Tom Kalnoky.

And regarding Pearl Jam...it depends on who you ask. Everyone likes a different era more. If you want early Pearl Jam, I'd say Ten or Vitalogy (I prefer Vitalogy out of the earlier stuff). If you want later Pearl Jam I'd say Yield or Riot Act (I like them both and prefer their later stuff).

I'd start with their album If You're Feeling Sinister. It's sort of their quintessential album, I think, and quite solid for the most part. "Get Me Away From Here, I'm Dying" is a good song to start with. It's one of their more well-known songs and it's a really good example of their sound. One of those songs that just makes you want to sing along.

Tigermilk, their independently released debut, is surprisingly alrigh, but maybe wait until you already know you like them to check it out. But "The State I'm In" is a great song, and it's quintessential B&S, so that'd be alright for a sample download. And I really like The Boy With the Arab Strap, but it's more experimental. I don't have any of their other albums, but I really like what I've heard from Dear Catastrophe Waitress, especially "Piazza, New York Catcher." Alright, how 'bout I just shut up and give you a list of songs.

The State I'm In
Get Me Away From Here, I'm Dying
Piazza, New York Catcher
She's Losing It
Me and the Major
Judy and the Dream of Horses
Sleep the Clock Around
Dirty Dream Number Two

Hmm, I guess your right since he wrote the songs on keasbay nights.

I think I'll be getting Ten. It has the only songs by them that I've actually heard before. I think it might be good to start with something that I'm a little familiar with.

nieh
08-04-2006, 05:01 PM
The problem with getting Ten is that you're already familiar with the best songs on it. On Vitalogy, most of the tracks are just as good as the songs that made it to the radio.

With Fugazi, you should start with Repeater. Either Streetlight Manifesto album would work, but I'd rather get Everything Goes Numb. As for Minus the Bear, I've only been a fan for about a week, so I don't know which album to recommend. Though, if you like funny song titles, go for Highly Refined Pirates.

Sorry if I missed it somewhere, but I don't think I've seen a single person suggest 13 Songs as a first Fugazi album. It's one of my favorites. You only really need to hear the first 5 seconds of Waiting Room before you realize that Fugazi is good.

Minus The Bear

Well, maybe it's just me, but Minus the Bear's EP "They Make Beer Commercials Like This" contains maybe 4 songs that crack my Top 10 Minus the Bear songs, which is pretty damn good for a 6-song EP. Highly Refined Pirates is alright, and a couple of highlights on it are fucking EXCELLENT with a type of charm you won't get from their later work, but there are a LOT of the same sounds over and over from the guitars and keyboards, and the guy's voice is pretty dull on it. They improve that stuff on Menos El Oso, but the songs aren't as well-written as, say, the best stuff on They Make Beer Commercials Like This. But if you want some songs to sample, I'll give you a few:

From Highly Refined Pirates:
Absinthe Party at the Fly Honey Warehouse
Get Me Naked 2: The Electric Boogaloo
I Lost All My Money at the Cock Fights

From They Make Beer Commercials Like This:
Fine + 2 Pts
Pony Up
I'm Totally Not Down With Rob's Alien

From Menos El Oso:
Pachuca Sunrise
Drilling
El Torrente

They have a couple of earlier EPs too, but that stuff's kinda hit-and-miss. I wouldn't check those out until you've already become a fan.

It's not as much on this board, as I've read it in various professional reviews online, plus it's the album all of my friends recommended I check out first. So I figured since it worked for me, it might work for someone else.

I only own two albums (the first two Keeper albums), but I think Keeper of the Seven Keys 2 is better than the first part. But I have to say, I don't really like any of them now. Still, I've heard they're the best albums Helloween has ever released, so I guess you should listen to one of them and see what you think.
I haven't heard Walls of Jericho, but I think it might be good. I've heard some songs and they sound pretty cool. But it's Speed Metal (basically metal mixed with punk) and Kai is the singer so it doesn't sound like their later albums at all.


I don't know if anyone can help me with this, but which Candlemass album should I get? It's either Nightfall or Tales of Creation.

the other one would be Banned in DC:Greatest Hits. thats self explanatory. :D

For Circle Jerks, I'd say start with Group Sex. It's a short CD (none of the songs are over 2 minutes) but it's a great disc. For Black Flag, I would start with Damaged, but I really haven't heard much of their later stuff.

This is kinda vague, but can anyone recommend me some Funk, and also can someone tell me where to start with either DOA or Dead Boys?

Bad Brains - Self-titled unless you want their thrash stuff. If you want thrash, get I Against I (I think that's what it's called).

Circle Jerks - Get Group Sex immediately. Wild In The Streets is good too, but it can't touch Group Sex.

Black Flag - First Four Years if you want someone besides Rollins. Damaged if you want Rollins.

Dead Boys - Young Loud N Snotty.

DOA - Hardcore 81 or Something Better Change.

I want to get into Sponge.
I recall you said earlier that it was easiest for you to download albums, so you should definitely get the whole Rotting Pinata album. Be forewarned, the rest of the album is a LOT grungier than you'd expect from Plowed or Molly, but there's still not a bad song on there.

I actually might think that New Pop Sunday is a slightly better album, but Rotting Pinata is quintessential Sponge... you just sort of have to start with it. After that, then you should look into New Pop Sunday, which is poppier, and Wax Ecstatic, which goes in the exact opposite direction from New Pop Sunday and is just a really dark album.

Their fourth album, For All the Drugs in the World, has some really good songs on it. Some of their best songs ever. But it's also the first Sponge album that has multiple BAD songs on it. And their latest album, The Man, just came out last year, and it's really disappointing. Their singer is the only original guy left in the band, and there's only a few songs on it that are worth listening to.

Burn Baby Burn.

For albums I still think 1977 is a complete master-peice of their work. Free all Angles was a great recovery from the absolute muck that was Nu-Clear sounds, avoid Nu-Clear sounds. And their latest effort Meltdown was very nice, probably the best guitar work on that album from Charolette and Tim.

If you were to get any of those though, definatly 1977 just very nice song writing, you could always get their greatest hits called "Intergallactic sonic 7's" to get a feel for them, I personnaly think the tracklisting wasnt the best choice on that album, its still good though.

I'm a novice to the genre, but from what I've heard, you might as well get some James Brown, Prince, The Ohio Players, Kool & The Gang, Curtis Mayfield, The Meters and Brothers Johnson.

Lots of albums are good.

Hopeless Romantic has 'Kid' and 'Hopeless Romantic'.
Anchors Aweigh has 'Kids and Heroes','Sing Along Forever, and 'Anchors Aweigh'
How I Spent My Summer Vacation has 'That Song', 'Private Radio', ' The Something Special', 'Manthem', and 'Gone'.

HISMSV is their most popular. Kid and Hopeless romantic are my favorite songs out of this bunch, but the rest of Hopeless Romantic isn't as good as the rest of the other two.

I'd get HISMSV.

It depends on what songs you've heard, because their sound has changed almost every album.

I started with Open Your Eyes. I love that album. but actually anywhere but the last one they made (Disconnection Notice) is a good place to start.

Compared to Goldfingers other albums no it wasn't very good. I still listen to is, and i do enjoy it, but I'd definatly buy it, just buy it last. Hang-Ups is a pretty good place to start. The most ska influenced album, its got some metal tinges here and there, and yes its got Superman. I didnt find out until i had Stomping Ground and Open Your Eyes, that they were the ones who did that.

Hope you like the cd.

if you want to buy an album your best choice would be Who's screwing who cause it contains every single song they play live.

by now I pretty much own their entire discography, including the rock 'n' roll cds they made without Jack Grisham.

my personal favorites would be:

Superficial love
Abolish the gouvernment/Silent Majority
THoughts of Yesterday
Die for me
Serious

and ofcourse Code Blue is a classic...

Depends on what you call TSOL:

These are the albums:

Black EP/Weathered Statues
Dance with me
Beneath the shadows
Change Today
Revenge
Hit & Run
Strange Love
Disappear
Divided we Stand
Who's screwing who

Everything after beneath the shadows and before Disappear is with a different singer and drummer though. Besides that they went from Punk to Rock 'n' Roll in those days.

you probably want the punk work though I personally like the rock stuff a lot aswell (which is kind of a dangerous thing to say on the website of that band:D)

Tigger Army

Recommend me some Helloween.


Someone recommended the two ' Keeper of the 7th key' albums and that's by far the best. If you can ignore the crappy production 'Time of the Oath' would be great aswell. And according to many people I speak with their album 'Rabbit don't come easy' (or something like that) is their first good album in years.

As for albums I'd suggest Silence. The rest is good, but that one is devine. unless you care mostly for the fast stuff then it would be Ecliptica. The live one called Songs of Silence is a nice summary of the first 2 albums.


For songs first a few great fast ones:

Wolf & Raven
FullMoon
The Cage
Respect the Wilderness (but you need japanese cds for that track)
Abandoned, pleased brainwashed, exploited

Slow ones:
Gravenimage (if you don't like that one you probably like nothing slow from Sonata)

I completely disagree with Silence. It's their most ballad based album, and is much harder to get into, especially if you're new to the band. Ecliptica or Winterheart's Guild would be the best way to start off.

As far as songs, Fullmoon, The Cage, APBE, and Don't Say a Word are all good for fast songs. For slow songs, I recommend Gravenimage, Replica, Draw Me, and Shamandalie.

Well except for maybe Pezz. Billy Talent II is the better album, but there is absolutely nothing wrong with Billy Talent. He's right, it is your choice. Billy Talent is more fast-paced and has a lot more yells from the lead singer. Billy Talent II is just pure unbelieveably great music.

I've had Let's Talk About feelings by Lagwagon for a few years, and I still love it beyond belief.

Do they have any other albums that sound somewhat identical to it?

Max Roach plzthx? I've heard single songs (which I don't remember the names of), but I rather enjoy him, his drumming, and his band.

It depends what you're in to. Their most "punk" cd is their self-titled and everything after that veers off into cheesy crossover metal. I like a few songs off their first one, but not much after it.

As for Lagwagon, I haven't heard that album so I don't know what it sounds like, but I have Trashed and I would definitely recommend it.

This I can help you on.

That song is a cover, originally done by the band Fear, who were a punk band from the 80's.

If you like that song in particular, then I suggest you look into them instead of From Autumn to Ashes, who sound more like a stereotypical screamo band If I do say so myself.

"Wouldn't Last a Day" is my favorite song. They did a newer version with the same vocalist but two new guitarists, and the solo's a lot more interesting. Virtually Indestructable is a good album, just kind of monotonous at times.

Deviates
They only released two albums, and I love Time Is The Distance. Best tracks on it are Turn It Down, One In Ten, Time Is The Distance, No Mistake, and So I Become.


Streetlight Manifesto

Favorite tracks are "Everything Went Numb", "That'll Be The Day", "Point/Counterpoint", "A Better Place, A Better Time", and "We Are The Few".


Jughead's Revenge
This is tough, because there is some stuff I don't like, and some I really, really like. To name a few, "Sleepwalking", "The Message", and the cover for "Talk Dirty To Me" are pretty good.


Queens of the Stone Age
Yatesy covered this so perfectly. There isn't a single flaw in his suggestions.


Van Halen

Favorite songs are "Ain't Talkin' Bout Love", "...And The Cradle Will Rock", "Unchained", and "Panama".
