ooh, i'm digging this!

been looking for more stuff like Cranes and Mazzy Star. learned about a genre called Dream Pop. looked it up, found a toplist, this was number 3. it's very 'dreamy' for lack of a better word. airy vocals, light synth... nice collection of tracks. my only complaint is that the vocals track does not stand out much - it blends right in with the music. makes for a somewhat monotonous sound...

i'll definitely be digging deeper into this genre. i've tried Cocteau Twins a few times now, and they're just too inaccessible for me...

The Amboy Dukes- The Amboy Dukes
Ted Nugent is a douchey motherfucker but this album is just so good.
If you like this one also get Journey To The Center Of Your Mind.

Man, I played the hell out of that Zwan album when it came out - haven't played it in a while though so it may be slated for a re- listen real soon, that is one solid album full of great tunes and good, warm feeling production, that while not perfect sonically, definitely translates the great feel of the songs. Top album. Arguably better than Corgan's Pumpkins comeback album....

Part of the NWOBHM but due to the Sabbath-esque riffing would become one of the benchmark records for the doom metal genre in the early 80's. One of my absolute favourites that I've just come back to this week. I have a feeling this is gonna take a hammering for the next few weeks.

Have you heard Angel Witches debut? A classic slice of NWOBHM. I would be very interested in acquiring the WG album

Slint - Spiderland (1991)

It's been a long time coming but I am surprised by how much I love it. I have yet to peel under the surface and get the lyrical themes though. What is this Spider-Land of which they speak?

Tinchy Stryder Vs Maniac mixtape (2009)

Hey hey! it's a grime mixtape that doesn't suck/have 20% killer 80% filler. I have never been a fan of Tinchy Stryder the MC, but his lyrics are surprisingly good in this... the only sub-par tracks on the album are from his half, apparently he insisted on some beats that Maniac (the producer) was not fond of.
Maniac however is a very interesting figure, very young and one of only a couple of grime producers I would say can hold a candle to any other genre of music. He's breaking new ground without making commercial-autotuned wank and is simply the future of grime - a scene that I think has yet to fully blossom into something beyond it's relatively niche audience. There has been a bit of a backlash to sh*t UK urban music and widespread bootlegging recently, and quality instrumental releases/vinyl are making a comeback which is something I am starting to get into.

Can - Soundtracks (1970)

Cheers JH, my favourite Can album after years of overkill, it's like everything I always wanted Monster Movie to be. Indisputably 'krautrock', but only the Can unit could take that stiff motorik chug and turn into something organic, hypnotic and groovy
