I don't care what anyone says Kid A always has, always will absolutely rule...

Glad to hear it. It's a hell of a ****ing record, I definitely agree with scottsy. It's my favorite record by them, and easily one of my favorite records ever. Just brilliant.

Lately, I've really been digging this....

Elephants - Rachael Yamagata



There are two discs, but only the first really appeals to me. It's honestly the best record I've heard in a while. I love the sound and overall atmosphere of her music; it's incredibly lush and beautiful at times, while still having lots of subdued and really intimate moods throughout.

A fascinating mish-mash of electronic styles; dub, trip-hop, big beat, IDM, hip-hop - they're all there to some extent or another. An excellently excellent album.


I loved the movie, and this soundtrack is damn cool as well. Has a bunch of great songs on it that I've heard down the years, so it's nice to have them in one place now that I've got this.


To me, it sounds like a longer, rougher-edged Endtroducing (in the way I've heard it was made at least), ending up with 32 tracks of avante-garde hip-hop/electronica. Great album from an area of music I don't know a lot about, it's just a shame the tracks are so short - while the more mediocre moments kind of fly by, the same can be said of the highlights not sticking around for long enough either.


A very modern-sounding lover's rock/dancehall album this. I liked it - there are one or two weaker moments, but some excellent songs to make up for it.

Leftfield-oh why did they never release anything else? The band had such potential and they gave Roots Manuva his big break too.

It's a shame eh. Rhythm and Stealth there is fast becoming one of my all-time favourites, and you're definitely right that they had so much potential. In a way though it's kinda good they quit while they were ahead of the pack - fortunately they weren't around long enough to tarnish their rep like Massive Attack did (for example).

A fantastic 1st wave album that's been missing from my collection for far to long. Thanks Bulldog!


More fantastic groove oriented Dub from New Zealand. Thanks Jackhammer! :

Four Tet - 'Pause'
This was recommended to me maybe 3 or 4 years ago and I never got round to it. I was wondering aimlessly around Last.FM and came across it. Decided to give it a go. Very fun and catchy progressive instrumental pieces. Perfect for a sunny day on public transit.

Thom Yorke - 'The Eraser'
Kind of like stripped down Radiohead (and i've heard it refered to as 'Kid B'). This has some really personal lyrics on it and that's what I like about Thom. Currently listening to this more than any of my Radiohead mainstays.

The Strokes - 'Is This It?'
The singles are pretty much the soundtrack to my rowdy pub going, underage drinking, sneaking a cigarette days. Very nostalgic and just makes me want to party. The US equivilant of Arctic Monkey's first LP.
