What I'm Listening To Right Now

I'm a big music person. Love it. Can't get enough of what I love!

Here's what I'm listening to at the moment (and have been a fair bit recently). Click to enlarge.

Thanks man! I LOVE Razorblade Suitcase. I remember saving my bucks to get that CD the day it came out!

Razorblade Suitcase rocks my bones, man! Synapse is greatness! lol. Gavin Rossdale is my dude completely. I'll buy any album he makes. I really wish Institute played out longer and of course I wanna see Bush back again. I'm also into No Doubt, Rob Zombie, Aaliyah, I LOVE Bob Marley, Blindside, The Gorillaz, Finger Eleven, Elan Atias, Nirvana, Danny Elfman, Amy Winehouse, Alice in Chains, Erykah Badu, Dave Navarro (excellent solo album), Garbage (I think Shirley and I are soul mates, we think nearly the same), Lupe Fiasco, Roots Manuva (my favorite rapper!)...

Great, now you can't get me to shut up, LOL.

recently I can't stop listening to the Sweeney Todd soundtrack, it's damn addicting, and tokka's love for Smashing Pumpkins has me listenin' to their stuff.

-->> o' shut up ,Greg !!



Greg said...

Heh heh, damn you, tokka! lol

btw, I started listenin to Machina/The Machines of God. Personally I prefer Adore... I guess I prefer the more laid back "gothy" tune... heh. I may just have to get used to it.

-->> ..all their albums seemed to reflect off personal times in their lives, i mean the band. And ' Adore ' wasn't just ' GOTHIC ' or whatever to be goth .. it's incredibly dark in tone and the general stories in the songs are rather tragic. coming from a time when that band in it's form at the time was dealing with a tremendous amount of tragedy in general.

Machina & Machina II are the swan songs. Machina actually being rather cryptic, .. it actually takes a detective to figure out the meaning of, being that i have the brain of a can of Ravioli i had, after 5 years of giving up just go ahead and look into seeing other writes ups on the album and Billy's confession about the story of it.

Now it's like this strange ' zietghiest' era and almost an entirely new band and a whole new era. Very classic and similar sounds & tones but with whole new themes and fresh outlook.

It's a very interesting time to be a S P fan. 20 years , like the damm Turtles .. and they are still around in some form or fashion.

Maybe it's all trying to tell me summin'.

I dunno.

I'll always be your whore.. ~~ **

Hmm, well I love stuff like that where it's never really clear what's being said. There's many songs I just stopped wondering and just love the song as it is, but its always cool to find some way to just find a way to connect those abstract lyrics to yourself. There's been many songs I never quite understood until I started going through some events or emotions and all of a sudden the lyrics just clicked for me.

Like I dunno if anyone else gets this, but Greedy Fly by Bush for me is a song about suicide. One day I was singing it in karaoke and all of a sudden I was like, "omg... what am I singin', this is about suicide!" lol, and I listened and rocked out to the song for years before. Tristan, what do you make of Greedy Fly?
