  1. What are your top ten favorite/best (is there a difference?) songwriters since 1980? I think that the 1980 distinction should mean that the output for which they are best known should be post-1980. E.g. this would rule out (imo) Bruce Springsteen, Richard Thompson, Elvis Costello (whose first three and probably most famous albums came out in the '70s), and Bob Dylan (who has obviously written lots of great stuff since 2000 along). We could do a separate list of greatest living or greatest ever. Jeff Tweedy Ryan Adams Tom Waits Jay Farrar Elliott Smith PJ Harvey Alejandro Escovedo Tori
  2. The Replacements - Pleased to Meet Me Let's see.
  3. The Replacements is a band I have never gotten. I have bought or acquired all of their albums that you guys are mentioning and I pull them out from time to time just to make sure, but they never click with me. Comments like: "Westerberg is one of the top songwriters of the last 25 years, without a doubt top 10 easily." leave me scratching my hand and I bet there's 30 people posting on here right now that I would wholeheartedly agree. I'm not saying that Cobain was a better songwriter, but I do like Nirvana better. I wouldn't bother to compare them because they're very different sounds to m
  4. The Beatles - The White Album Wilco - Yankee Hotel Foxtrot Led Zeppelin - III Bob Dylan - Blood on the Tracks Elliott Smith - Either/Or Joni Mitchell - Blue Radiohead - The Bends Bruce Springsteen - Nebraska Built to Spill - There's Nothing Wrong with Love Pearl Jam - Vitalogy Without intellectualize I just end up thinking of my favorite artists and then my favorite albums of theirs. Nothing wrong with that though. It's probably a good way to make such a list.
  5. The only version I have on my laptop is: Richard and Linda Thompson (I've never used Rapidshare before so let me know if it doesn't work.) It's a live version on the The Life And Music Of Richard Thompson box set. I also highly recommend you to check out the original album and then work your way through the catalog of one of the most underrated artists in all of music, that of Richard Thompson. (OK maybe I'm a little biased.) Linda is fabulous; I wish they did more albums together.
  6. Voxtrot - random songs Either put out a full length with all new and wonderful songs or I will find your address and pay a visit.
  7. I don't think I've talked to anyone that likes A Hundred Miles Off all that much (relative to the other albums).
  8. The Walkmen - Pussy Cats Starring the Walkmen I'm just sure that this is going to be bad but I'm giving it a chance anyway.
  9. Pedro The Lion - Control Loved Achilles Heel so I'm checking this out.
  10. The Figurines -Skeleton I really like this album. Nothing especially groundbreaking, but just great songs. Anyone heard Shake A Mountain? I'd never heard of it till just checking Oink.
  11. I won't try to sell Opera too hard cause FF is a great browser, but if it's extensions you miss try this list: http://files.myopera.com/Rijk/blog/extensions.html It's a list of Opera equivalents of many extensions.
  12. Just curious. I love Opera and wonder why more people don't use it.
  13. For me, Quadrophenia lacks something. I don't know what it is exactly, but I will also reach for Tommy or Who's Next over it.
  14. To me it seems more plausible that someone would have crippling stage freight than that someone would pretend to have crippling stage freight simply to increase show attendance/possibly album sales. I think this would hinge on the number of people who go to see her simply to see a trainwreck and I've never met anyone like that. Everyone I know says that they love her music but always hesitate to see her live because of the trainwreck possibility.
  15. just finished: Sleater-Kinney - Dig Me Out NP: Sleater-Kinney - The Woods
  16. I assume that people go see her to try and catch one of the shows where she is on. I've heard that there's been more of those lately, but the one I saw was certainly a trainwreck.
  17. I don't think boasting about past drug abuse is an appropriate use of a Tuesday afternoon.
  18. I've never listened to that album without playing Mollena at least twice.
  19. I think I'll be seeing James Hunter on Saturday. It's in the middle of a bunch of other good concerts this week, but that album is so good I think I'll have to go.
