View Full Version : What is the BEST cd you have?
02-14-2002, 02:45 PM
I'm talking about the best CD, all around - not just a single song. And 'best of's and 'greatest hits's don't count.
Counting Crows - "August and Everything After"
02-14-2002, 02:52 PM
The live CD 'dire straits on the night'
It's the best sounding live CD I have ever heard, any song kicks ass, and they are played non stop, as if they were one huge song... And Mark KNOFLER's tone...mmmmh

COUNTING CROWS???? j/k
I'd say one of the three Failure CD's, or Blur's 13. I guess it just depends on the day, mood, etc.
02-14-2002, 04:31 PM
hmmmm... it depends on my mood, and it changes depending on whether i've heard it recently or not, but at the minute it's probably one of:
Any other city- by life without biuldings
Post or debute - by bjork
sytem of a down or toxcicity- by system of a down
electric lady land- by jimmi hendrix
or maybe a single, which would be "cedar room" by the dover, a very mellow single (3 tracks)...

At this time, it's my Hoobastank cd. Probably if you ask me next week it'll be something else. ;)

I don't think I'll ever hear anything as deep as CC's AAEA...
02-14-2002, 05:13 PM

If you are a Led Zeppelin fan just as I am, then you may agree that their BBC Sessions is one of the BEST Cd's ever recorded. It basically has all of their greatest songs in a continuous and very well played live jam.
02-14-2002, 07:12 PM
I have several:
My favorite album of "Guitar Cheese:" Buckethead - "Giant Robot"
Best all around: Morphine - "Yes" or "Cure for Pain"
Most listened to right now: Clutch - "Jam Room"
02-14-2002, 07:57 PM
I have a couple of favourites in different genres. These are albums I think are fantastic, not ones that I am necessarily listening to right now.
Bob Dylan's Blonde on Blonde is about as close to perfection on a rock album as has ever been reached. I can never leave this album at home because I never know when I will need to listen to it again.
For jazz I can't argue with Miles' Kind of Blue, though John Coltrane's A Love Supreme must be up there as one of the greatest jazz albums ever.

Well, this is a tough one. Cause I can't really compare music across genres. Here's a few good ones though -
Classic rock - The Wall, Pink Floyd
Nu-Metal - Home, Sevendust
Hair Metal - the Metallica Black Album
Instrumental - Crystal Planet, Satch
Soundtrack - The Crow

friskynibbles, I liked OK COMPUTER better than Kid A. I'd say that Computer is one of my top favorites. I keep on going back to this 80's band called Pop Will Eat Itself - This is the Day...This is the Hour...This is This. What a title :) One of the best songs from that CD is Wise Up! Sucker . Get that song. It's pretty catchy. It's one of the few songs that actually has a guitar solo in it.Well, The Fuses Have Been Lit sort of has a guitar "part" in it but it's not a solo.
PWEI's Cure For Sanity album was what made me feel that KID A wasn't as original as the critics made it out to be. There's a song called Touched by the Hand of Cicciolina (Edited Highlights) that does everything that is done in the entire Kid A album in 7 minutes(Orchestra horns combined with electronic music, ambient sounds, and echoing vocals). Plus it was made back in 1990.

apettite for destruction. pure raw rock
02-15-2002, 02:45 PM
i just like how doped up i feel when i crank "kid 'a'"... karma police is one of my favorite songs though *sigh*
whoever said they liked Sevendust's disc - I agree. Didn't really like "Appetite for Destruction" though... not my kind of music.

I never, ever get bored of the work of art known as:
Keep the Faith - Bon Jovi
02-15-2002, 08:55 PM
Oh yeah! Best thing to come from the 80s was JBJ!!!
"Shot through the heart and you're to blame...

02-16-2002, 12:59 PM
anything by radiohead
im not saying that coz i am a fanatical person who worships them or anything (but i do!!!!!), its just i honestly do think they are the best rock band on the planet
i think the 1 album whould have to be...... erm........ oooo....... OK Computer, coz of paranoid android. close behind though are The Bends and I Might Be Wrong: Live Recordings
i also have to metion Zep IV and II, The Smiths and Queen: Live at Wembly coz they are all ace too!

Bob Seger Nine Tonight
Did I mention I'm in my thirties?
How do I get a signature?
02-16-2002, 06:00 PM
Jeff Buckley - Grace
Guns N Roses - AFD
Bob Dylan - Blonde On Blonde
02-16-2002, 06:06 PM
they were selling Grace for £6 in MVC... and I DIDNT HAVE ANY GODDDDAAAMMMM money!!!... great album... then again he's a great giutarist (because he conveys emotions very well)... I heard it a couple of time when a freind lent it to me way back... I wish i'd bought it back then... I might go and look see if it's still there on Monday.. but knowing my luck it wont be... like the fantastic John lee hooker double cd which was £5, I had no money on me at the time... a day later it's gone :(...
02-16-2002, 06:17 PM
Make sure you buy it, its always real cheap here too. Pity he died so young.
02-16-2002, 06:22 PM
what??? HE died? when was this? (sorry about my ignorance)...how?.. hmmm, he was one of my favourite guitarists, and SINGERS... great voice.. I saw him live on MTV2, and thier improvised track was stunning... but why was the band called jeff buckely? (sorry I'm stupid)... i did notice the other guys he plays with are regulars.. or was it a case of "couldn't think of anything" or "easier to register the name" syndrome...
That's a real pity...
02-16-2002, 06:24 PM
02-16-2002, 06:27 PM
Yeah he died a few years ago, he was floating on a river(singing Whole Lotta Love apparently) and he got sucked under a tugboat and died as a combination of being beaten by the engine and eventually drowning. Sad I know. His dad, Tim Buckley died young too, in a car crash I think.
I dunno why the band is called Jeff Buckley but he did most of the songwriting, production etc. plus he was the singer and guitarist.

Jeff Buckley is huge here in Australia, so much so that the record company are always putting out unreleased stuff that isn't even put out in the states. At my college we get a lot of American exchange students, and they all say things like "You mean he's American? I never even heard of him until I got to Australia" kind of stuff. It's a bit like Ben Folds, who now lives in Australia partly because he's always had such good audiences here. It's weird how that works, though I guess with a population as big as the US, there are so many live acts competing all the time. Over here we're lucky to have one big name band in the country at any one time.
02-16-2002, 10:20 PM
I remember that there was a band that was being compared to Jeff Buckley that came out in 2001. Their name was OURS. I bought the CD and listened to it. It was ok but I sold it about 3 months after buying it.
02-17-2002, 04:26 PM
Yeah, theres an English band thats pretty succesful recently that are hugely influenced by Jeff Buckley called Starsailor. Theyre pretty good, I got their album. Alot of people don't like them though.
02-18-2002, 09:00 AM
When i want inspiration... i look no further than dave and tims live at the warehouse. no drums, or bass... nothing but two martin d-45's, daves percussive chords and tim reynolds supa fast flamenco style licks. every song is pure perfection.
