In response to yogafriend's comment:
Just wondering if you have any music on tap that you're either in the process of pursuing, or have on your wish list or "list" to purchase. Still on the fence? Still ruminating?
My list is too long to post in full, so here's a sampler of a few toppers:
Alison Krauss (and Union Station) - Live (live album)
Band of Horses (looking into an album)
Wilco - The Whole Love
Collective Soul - possibly 7-Year Itch (or another compilation or hits album)
Black Crowes - Amorica
... and many more, some classical, too.
Are any of you looking for anything in particular?
NOTE: Got hold of Keane's "Hopes and Fears" recently, and it more than met my expectations. I was concerned about the "mainstream hits" :) on the album (that I would be tired of them), but that did not even occur to me in the context of the album. It's a case of "the whole is greater than the sum of its parts" (Aristotle) in all its glory. :)
[/QUOTE] What kind of music do you usually lean to? [/QUOTE]
Gosh, that's a good question. I might not have the most eclectic taste, but it's a bit hard to characterize my leanings. Ambient (or the formerly known as shoe-gazer or trip hop, although those are not terms I tend to use), and more low-key rock, such as Massive Attack, and melodic rock such as the band Keane.
Been growing in my taste with Americana music, somewhat hybrid rock and folk, maybe? Older music would be along the lines of Jackson Browne in that realm. Today I heard a song by a band called Family of the Year called "Hero" that was real nice. Got into the Scorpions (forum inspired) over the past couple of years. The thing with me is that I'm open to try anything ... doesn't mean I'll take to it, but the fact that I am receptive, brings lots of music I never expected right to me.
Why? Got a recommendation?
