I only listened to that album because they were supporting Primal Scream and I wanted to see what they were like.

As you can see it was only played once.

Wow Urban, totally harsh, you pretty much took the sh*t on all of Mr. Ballins top artists.

Troy:

Mos Def - Pretty damn good.

Lupe Fiasco - ...

Nas - Great. Illmatic ftw.

The Killers - I think they're trash, I hate most of these "revival" bands.

Arctic Monkeys - Whatever People Think I Am was a solid debut, but they really overhyped the hell out of this band.

Portishead - Awesome, Beth Gibbons has one of the most amazing voices I've ever heard.

Pink Floyd - I'm wearing my DSOTM t shirt right now. =)

Air - Excellent, Moon Safari is THE chill album.

Gorillaz - I prefer their first album, but Gorillaz are probably the best mainstream pop act there is right now.

The Strokes - Good but incredibly overrated.

A Tribe Called Quest - I think Low End Theory is an album everyone should hear even if they don't like hip hop, thats just how good TCQ is.

The Roots - I like them, not as much as everyone else though.

Blackalicious - ...

Radiohead - Sigh, I'm running out of stuff to say without sounding cliche, turns out I'm not gonna see them at Lollapalooza like I wanted.

Cee Lo - He's great but I'm not too big on him.

Common - Need to hear more from him but he is really good.

Outkast - I like their older stuff, but I don't want to hear anything from Speakerboxx/The Love Below ever again.

MF Doom - Great, I need to check out Madvillian.

Del Tha Funkee Homosapien - I like what I've heard, I need to hear more.

The Flaming Lips - Amazing.

Nujabes - ...

Sway DaSafo - ...

Massive Attack - They're great, I've been getting into them more.

jimi Hendrix - He really got me into good rock music, and I used to be really into him.

Gnarls Barkely - Good but overrated.

Next 25, skipping a few artists that are on there because of my brother.

Ramones
Tom Waits
Portishead

@ TROY 148

I really like (most of) your taste in hip-hop...What do you think of Dilated Peoples or the J5 or Talib Kweli? Did you like the Blackstar album?

If you're posting in the music forums make sure to be thoughtful and expressive, if you're posting in the lounge ask yourself "is this something that adds to the conversation?" It's important to remember that a lot of people use each thread. You're probably not as funny or clever as you think, I know I'm not.

yeah, wtf, I had to review your playlist which is hard because of your unique taste. Then on top of that Mr. Urban Hatemonger reviews my playlist. I am like the fat kid at the pool party. If I go in I am going to be called Free Willy, and if I stay out I am going to be sweaty and called stinkass. Lose lose.

But really, I am just happy that Urban liked Hendrix. Recently some people have been saying that Hendrix was wildly overrated.

Oh and The Only Color that Matters is Green is a very well done hip hop album by Pacewon and Mr. Green, no idea why you gave it a no.

DJ Shadow - Eh, never liked him at all.

Ramones - pretty good, prefer the Clash though.

Tom Waits - Never liked him

Portishead - Who?

Mr. Bungle - Too avantgarde for me.

Gang of Four - Who?

Rage Against the Machine - yuck, i used to like them but they only have 4 listenable songs...not into their music, but I give them some credit for pioneering that 'rapcore' crap or whatever

Primus - Great band, love Les Claypool. Him and McCartney are who got me interested in bass. Favorite is 'Mr. Krinkle'

X - It's sexist but apart from Bjork and Nico I don't like female singers in bands too much.

Neil Young - He's alright, don't listen to him much though

Beck - My favorite active (and in his prime still) solo artist

Van Halen - Never liked their music at all. 'Eruption' was such a waste, could have used it in a real song. Never liked it anyways, because all I could do was say 'Wow he's pretty good'. Meant nada to me.

Public Enemy - Meh

Gong - Love 'em.

Weezer - Never had been a fan.

Greenslade - My brother likes them. He's into a ton of progressive rock / hard rock / metal. Their okay I suppose, better sounding than Van Halen.

Dinosaur Jr - Never listen to them much but their alright

DangerDoom - Who?

Ozric Tentacles - Never heard of them

Johnny Cash - My favorite 50s guy

The Kinks- Love 'em. Got 4 albums and they all play nice

Hawkwind - Love that stuff, I only got 'Space Ritual' but I love their sound.

Roxy Music - Good band, pretty underrated.

Aphex Twin - Not into electronic music

Sigur Rós - Have only heard of them, love to listen to some of their music though.

My next 25

Flaming Lips
Bob Dylan
Primus
Jimi Hendrix
Paul McCartney
Johnny Cash
Rolling Stones
Talking Heads
Eric Clapton
Wilson Pickett
The Zombies
Brian Eno
The Police
Jefferson Airplane
The Kinks
Buddy Holly
Simon and Garfunkel
Stevie Wonder
Gong
Ringo Starr (laugh all you want)
