I'm watching this documentary on The Flaming Lips and man oh man did I forget how wonderful they are.

What other bands are there that you love but don't seem to listen to enough (and are pleasantly surprised when you do)?

The Flaming Lips rock. I'm listening to Fight Test right now, and Do You Realize may indeed be one of the most beautifully composed songs in existence.

Completely forgot about how wonderful Radiohead were until they released their new album. Now I can't stop listening to them. They actually are an aurgasm.

Arcade Fire and Patrick Wolf, too.

Nirvana.


So good. The only band where I owned (notice the past tense) every one of their albums. Unless they had hidden albums that I never knew about. I hate that people (or many people I've talked to) won't listen to them for stupid reasons. I've heard these: they sold out, Kurt Cobain was a terrible guitarist, the music was poorly put together, the lyrics sucked (very untrue), and some more really bullshit reasons. Also, I don't like when people listen to them because it's the thing to do.

But I must raise the question here of what Dir en grey stuff you're referring to. Are we talking Withering to Death? Marrow of a Bone? Missa? Vulgar? It's all pretty different in style, as they changed quite a bit from their Missa days to their Marrow days.

Anyway, I'd probably say I need to listen to more Death Cab for Cutie stuff. I tend to skip over it way too much lately.

I love Kid A and OK Computer. I wish I could get into "In Rainbows" but it just doesn't have that same quality to it.

Adding to Arcade Fire - Wilco, Sigur Ros, and Joanna Newsom.

Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots is one of the most soothing albums I have. I can't get past the terrible lyrics of The Soft Bulletin or At War With the Mystics, but Yoshimi nailed it. Absolutely nailed it. That little electronic intro/outro to "Sympathy 3000-21" makes me happy. It's so musical and so non-musical at the same time.

'Lie in the Sound', 'And we lean in' and 'Fragment' by Trespassers William. I have the best daydreams when listening to this music, but my life's to busy to really daydream at the moment.

Oh me yarm, a friend and I used this for the trailer of our book trilogy 'Die Bestie von Quevillon'. Most characters die in gruesome ways and I can't listen to this piece of music anymore without thinking of all the characters I tortured and killed o.o

Man, now there's a band I've been meaning to listen to more of, caught some randomly a while back. Thanks for the [unintentional] reminder.

I recently remembered how good Zabrinski are, which I had completely forgotten about. Not really an eargasm, really though... Though I recently re-discovered Sweet. Quality glam cheese, if there ever was any.

I agree with both here. I always forget how much I love them, and all of their styles. Then I listen to Kodou, Cage, Jealous, Ain't Afraid to Die... I love all of their stuff in different ways. (That sounds like such a cop-out, but it's true, lol)

As for other bands, I'm always pleasantly re-surpriesd when I lsiten to Goo Goo Dolls.

I don't actually own much of their stuff, and what I do have tends to get lost in the mix. But every now and then Who Wants to Live Forever? or Keep Yourself Alive pops up and I remember how incredible they could be.

Eisley. All of their music is beautiful, but very wintery and I'm determined to only listen to them when it's cold out. It makes me sad in the summer when I can't listen, but because of that, they cheer me up so much when it's cold and gross out in November. I just say "Oh YAY, it's Eisley season!" so I'm happy again.

The Mars Volta. I saw them a couple of years ago and it was the best concert I'd ever seen. Cedric's voice is like angels having an orgasm, and the rest of the band is fucking insane.

I don't know how I do it, but I always have a few months between bursts of Pearl Jam. But then I bust out my bootlegs (Cincinnati in 2000 and Penn State in '03) and possibly the Touring Band 2000 DVD and it takes up a week of my life. This most recent Pearl Trip got me attempting a flow chart to show the journey from Green River to Pearl Jam. I think I'm trying to include too much information, but I want to make sure Mudhoney gets proper mention in there, too.
I have nothing to offer anybody except my own confusion.

Coldplay

I love them, but its one of those bands that I come across and listen to for a while then stop.

Actually, there are a lot of bands that fall into that category (10100 songs does that)

I've been on a non-stop Joy Division ride for about a week now. I've 'liked' them for a long time, but I've never really gotten into them until now. I'm shocked at how much I was missing out.

Oh yeah, The Pixies are amazing. One of my favorite alt-rock groups.

I'll be the first to admit though that I don't listen to nearly enough King Crimson. I only have Court of the Crimson King and Wake of Poseidon—not nearly enough.
