Revisiting some old school Genesis tonight, namely, the wonderful and frequently grandiose (which makes it even better) Selling England by the Pound.... I forgot how jaw droppingly good the guitar solo in the middle of Firth of Fifth was...

I tend to binge on Pink Floyd quiet often. Pipers has to be on my top 5 Pink Floyd albums. Syd Barrets lyrics are witty, funny and trippy. Making him one of my favorite songwriters of all time.

some stuff I've been enjoying over the past few days:

Low - I Could Live In Hope
Beautiful album, not their best but it's up there.

Tindersticks - Second Album
Listened to it three times so far and I'm enjoying it a lot. Got their first album downloading right now.

Native Nod - Today Puberty, Tomorrow The World
Amazing angular hardcore album, from the early-mid 90s band. One of my favourite emo bands, for sure. They only recorded 9 songs but they're all top notch.

The Gun Club - Fire Of Love
A band I don't listen to nearly enough, they're just awesome.

Choirs of the Eye is much better than Coyote.

Just sayin'

I disagree with this... But they're both pretty excellent. I can pass on much of their other material but both of those albums are so utterly complete and full-sounding.

It's certainly good, no doubt. But I much prefer Choir of the Eye... by a good bit too actually.

To each his own. At least I still find them both at least great. And I will admit that COTE has the best individual song, "The Manifold Curiosity". I'll have to see how Coyote stacks up after even more time. I did get it when it first came out, but I could still falter on it some day.

Also, if that's an "8105" lyric in your signature, you're my hero!

Well, thus far those are my two favourites.

Oh and I love Moving Mountains, 8105 <3

I just listened to Pneuma this morning. So many of those tracks bring me to near-tears, that I sometimes wonder why I listen to it... But then I remember it's near-perfect!

Anyways... An album I'm digging as of late:

John Fahey - The Great Santa Barbara Oil Slick

RYM review:

http://rateyourmusic.com/collection/...rating30536822

That's a long-ish one, so in summary: He captures everything I love about guitar, his on-stage persona is fabulous, and the flow between each consecutive track, whether technical or simple, is beyond words.
