    I’ve been listening to two cd’s recently, the impressive Prodigy ‘Fat of the Land’ cd album, you may have heard some of their music in the Matrix, and I heard they doing more tracks for the next Matrix movie.
    The other is the haunting and tranquil sounds of Enigma, the combination of a male and female choir vocalists mixed with a touch of Enya and techno, is just the ultimate chill-out music for me.

    I’m offended that I don’t know what a spliff is J/k
    Alice looked and she did weep “I will not smoke that massive spliff”, The caterpillar did say “No, let us go to the planet Schmoe”
    And Schmoe they went, and Schmoe they did, and they found themselves a little kid. Who was in her group and he was crying…

    Well, if we’re talking music of that vintage and era, and operating a CD player under the same…erm…conditions, let me recommend something similar (and actually board-related, as it’s sci-fi inspired!).
    DR Alex Patterson’s work with The Orb remains a favorite of mine, dating a lot less than most “electronica” from that time period. I’d go with The Orb’s Adventures Beyond the Ultraverse or the follow-up U.F.Orb (try to find the 2-disc version of the latter for a bonus single — the longest one in existence, I believe — which features a 40-minute long version of the hit “Blue Room”) as good introductions. DR Alex was one of the pioneers of the “ambient house”/”chillout” arena, and the music still holds up for me. I think most of The Orb’s stuff is quite good, and that the later albums are underrated, but avoid at all costs the mid-period EP Pomme Fritz unless you need to complete a collection. While you’d think that the live album Live93 would be less impressive, some of the tracks are more effective than their studio counterparts. The 2 remix albums, Auntie Aubrey’s Excursions Beyond the Call of Duty (vols. 1 & 2) are hit-and-miss, IMHO, but they’re still worth checking out.

    oh neat, another person who has toto in their play-list (i think we are a minority). I have a few of their songs from the original dune movie. They did a really good job on that i think.

    cd’s currently sprawled around my living area (mostly old stuff):

    Brian Eno & John Cale – wrong way up
    Brian Eno – another green world
    Brian Eno & Jah Wobble – spinner
    Brian Eno – before and after science
    Tori Amos – little earthquakes
    Tori Amos – from the choirgirl hotel
    Kate Bush – the whole story
    The Softies – winter pageant
    Urge Overkill – exit the dragon

    just done a swap! currently got-
    Slipknot-Iowa
    Staind-Break the cycle
    Andrew WK-I get wet
    Although i’ve listened to ‘Break the cycle’ many times, perhaps because of the way things are with me at the mo, i found it affected me in a way it never has done before. I listened to the likes of ‘Epiphany’ and ‘Outside’, and, (perhaps more with ‘Outside’) found myself in tears. Such is the power of the music.

    Hmmm… let’s see what I’ve got in the CD Player at the moment…

    The O Brother Where Art Thou Soundtrack, WIllie Nelson [unsure of which CD it is as it’s a burned CD and my father forgot to put the name on it], The Tea Party – TRIPtych, Tori Amos – Under the Pink, Secret Garden – Songs from a Secret Garden, Jim Boyd – ALTERnatives, and UNKLE – Psyence Fiction.

    Oh, also, I have a mix CD playing in my CD-ROM, which has lots of different people on it [Rufus Wainwright, Jeff Buckley, Tori Amos, Kate Bush, Mandalay, Moulin Rouge Sndtrk stuff, Tricky, Patti Smith, Billie Holiday, Einsturzende Neubauten, PJ Harvey, Kristen Hersh, and Red House Painters].

    Wasn’t that fun?

    The new Moby album ’18’ is pretty good. Don’t be misled by the godawful single ‘we are made of stars’ though – the album is NOTHING like it. Its a very soulful record almost entirely reliant on blues and gospel samples. ’18’, then, is pretty much a reprise of Play, and some fans are disappointed by its close resemblance to it. Personally speaking, I think its a better record than Play. Whilst there aren’t any comparable highlights, it strikes me as being more consistent in quality and tone. Lovely.

    And 1 Giant Leap is an often excellent ‘world’ music record, featuring artists as diverse as Baba Maal, Robbie Williams, Michael Stipe, Kurt Vonnegut, Eddie Reader, Neneh cherry and Horace Andy. Works a treat in many places. You might already know the singles ‘braided hair’ and ‘my culture’ which – again- are not exactly represntative of the treats that lie within.

    The new Flaming Lips album ‘Yoshimi versus the Pink Robots’ is great (sci fi related!) It is possibly as good as their ‘soft bulletin’, although I’m wavering on this one. Even better – we can now supplement cdr versions with ‘mixed’ tracks off the infamous ‘zaireeka’ album – originally released as four seperate cds that needed to be played on four seperate players and through eight speakers to get the ‘full’ effect. someone has made it easier for music lovers on AG – paticular amazing is ‘riding to work in the year 2005′(sci fi related!)

    I don’t listen to much music at home, mainly in the car. I am listening to the new (fairly new) YES album, Magnification and also Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel – Timeless Flight; some Beatles, a collection of old 70’s songs from Mott The Hoople, ACDC, Aerosmith (Rocks) and Jethro Tull. Oh yeah, and a Yello album.

    It depends on what mood I’m in I guess – thank god for CD changers

    finally got my grubby maulers on ‘Source Tags and Codes’. it is a good album- thanks for telling me about it, bonnee! have got it in with Whitesnake- ‘1987’, and ‘The Blue Planet’ soundtrack again. don’t know about anyone else, but i tend to end up with certain cd’s more or less taking up permanent residence in my player. TBP has been spending quite a bit of time in there at the mo! chill out music….

    I’m pleased to see you like it Snooklepie – its an excellent record. If you want to read a review that allots it 10/10, check out

    http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/record-reviews/a/and-you-will-know-us-by-the-trail-of-dead/source-tags-and-codes.shtml

    Given your interest in rock, you are probably looking forward to the imminent release of the new Queens of the Stone Ages record. Apparently it is due in a month or two, although the album will be available on AG in 5 days time. If you haven’t heard their previous stuff, though, also check out their earlier record Rated R – not to mention, their previous incarnation as Kyuss. ‘Welcome to Sky Valley’ and ‘Blues for a Red Sky’ are great too.

    i’ll get my friend (who found ‘source tags & codes’ for me) to look those up for me! in the past i found out about ‘new’ bands through the rock nights i used to frequent. nowadays it’s usually through watching MTV2 here (that is, when the other half’s not here!). i’ve heard of ‘queens of the stone age’, but i couldn’t tell you what any of their songs are. i probably do know them, and like them….damn, i really ought to remember to write down things like titles and bands when i see something on MTV2 i like!! that’s how i got into ‘system of a down’ and ‘linkin park’. i finally remembered to write stuff down…

    If you’re friend is sourcing Audiogalaxy Snooklepie, you better act fast . The RIAA has just filed a suit against them, and they are (presumably) going to follow Napster down the toilet sooner or later. Hopfully later than sooner, but AG might capitulate of their own accord. And if mp3’s are a possible source, try to get AT THE DRIVE IN’s – Relationship Of Command if you haven’t already heard/got it. Another relatively recent great rock album that is mandatory listening.

    As for me, I’m listening to: The Phantom Of The Opera Musical soundtrack, Eminem’s The Eminem Show and David Usher’s Morning Orbit (Morning Orbit is playing right now, actually). ‘Black, Black Heart’, is, in my opinion, is the best piece of music to come out of the 20th century.

    Maybe you know already, but the opera bit in “black, black heart” is a sample from a song in the Leo Delibes’ opera “Lakme” called Flower duet. I think it was in a british airways commercial a while back. Anyway, if you like “black, black heart” you might also like to hear flower duet (if you haven’t heard it already). It’s quite popular but very pretty.

    not in my player yet! but i’ve got a few new cd’s coming. continuing on a rock theme, i’ve got Rolling Stones- Hot Rocks(64-71) coming (i fell in love with ‘Paint it Black’ when they started using it for the theme for ‘Tour of Duty’), Incubus- Morning View and Supercharged which is a various album (it’s got a Queens of the Stone Age track on it, so then i will know if i do like them b4 i start tracking down their entire back catalogue!)….and i’m not sure if i should be admitting this, but i’m also getting Russell Watson- Encore. ‘Faith of the Heart’ has grown on me, and i was wanting to know what else he could do. sorry, but i had to!!!

    I Can’t even begin to describe how wonderful Cinematic Orchestra’s Everyday is. Some seem to want to call it jazz, but it is (as the title suggests) more orchestral and panovision than that. Takes its cue from a variety of sources, including soul, hip hop, jazz, film scores, etc. If you can manage to download Burnout, All Things to All Men, All That You Give and Every Day on AG as a preview, then please do. It probably won’t leave your cd player.

    i know you’re probably going to jump up and down on me for this one, but i think the Sisters of Mercy version of ‘Gimme Shelter’ is better than the Stones original. i just think the vocal style suits the words better.

    The Sisters can be a bit of an acquired taste, if you know what i mean!! The album i have with their version of Gimme Shelter on it is called ‘Some Girls Wander By Mistake’. it’s a compilation of their stuff from 80-83. I thought to myself that i hadn’t actually played it for a while, so i’ve just stuck it on. it’s been around a while, the copyright date on it is ’92. don’t know how easily you could get hold of it now. sounds a bit weird, considering i seem to have been living on a diet of nu-metal for the past few months!!

    I’m actually a pretty big fan of the Sisters, but I think that cover is complete crap. There’s, IMHO, this intensity of feeling in the Stones’ version that isn’t present in the Sisters’. The original feels like desperation while staring into the face of the apocalypse (which is why it’s so perfectly placed at the end of the Stones’ eponymous documentary which climaxes with their performance at Altamont — which, along with the Manson Family murders, is often referenced as the death of the 60’s), whereas the Sisters’ version is too mannered for my tastes. It’s an approach that works fine with their originals, but just doesn’t gel — for me, at least — with the song’s material.

    That’s not boring. I have 300 songs by them. Like the remix better, tho. Bono’s version of Leonard Cohen’s “Halleluja” makes me forget to breathe.

    I have (5 disk changer):

    The Audiants: All the time in the world
    The Sisters of Mercy: A Slight Case of Overbombing
    Las Vegas Grind #1
    A Mix CD of songs I want to sample from. (Oldies to Industrial: It’s funny to me to have Marilyns Manson and Monroe on the same collection.)
    and get this:
    Tom Jones Greatest Hits (for some reason, this helps me clean my house. If anyone has an idea why this is, I would love to hear it. I’m completely clueless in that regard!)

    My mp3 playlist would be too large and therefore boring to everyone but me to bother with.

    You appear to be suffering from “Tom Jones Syndrome”

    A man consults a psychiatrist and begins to tell him his problem.
    “Doctor, I don’t know what’s the matter with me. I’ll be making love to my
    wife, and I find myself singing ‘Why-why-why, Delilah?’ and her name is
    Wanda…I’ll be walking my dog, all the time singing ‘What’s new, pussycat?’
    and I don’t even like cats….Whenever I’m driving in the country, it’s all
    about the ‘Green,green grass of home,’ and I never lived in the country. I
    don’t understand why I keep breaking into these songs!”
    “Well,” the head-shrinker counsels his patient, “you have what we in the
    profession, call ‘Tom Jones Syndrome.'”
    “Tom Jones Syndrome?” the couch-jockey muses. “Is that bad?”
    “Let me put it this way,” the doctor assures him, “IT’S NOT UNUSUAL!”
