Rock Spectacle----------Barenaked Ladies

What you got back home, little sister, to play your fuzzy warbles on? I bet you got little save pitiful, portable picnic players. Come with uncle and hear all proper! Hear angel trumpets and devil trombones. You are invited.

Yeah, I thought about that; but many of their songs start off quiet...then build to a crescendo.

They likely don't get the Pixies; really understand how brilliant their music is. Their Quiet/Loud/Quiet formula laid the foundation for seminal albums of the 90s like Nevermind, Ten, Siamese Dream, et al.

Bossanova is actually my least favorite of the 4; but has one of my favorite singles, Velouria.

I feel sorry for elitists who truly base their worth as a human on their CD collection, who go around acting superior to other people just because they like something that a lot of people haven't heard of.

Yeah the Pixies are okay. I listened to them a lot in high school when I was obsessed with any American rock. I also thought Sonic Youth were the epitimy of cool. Now I realise a lot of their stuff was arty ******** with no substance (still can't believe I spent $30 on the Whitey Album!). Then again some of it was purely wonderful unpretentious rock.

You will be a lot happier when you realise that good music is not always underground or unnoticed by radio stations. Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Ben E. King, Eric Clapton were all extremely popular on radio, household names yet more influential on music than the Pixies ever were. They're all right there on my shelf next to Albert King and Buddy Guy. I don't discriminate when it comes to good music.

Sounds like you have a lot of music to me. Besides dude; the Pixies are hardly underground. The Wavves are "underground", and Animal Collective; and...let me look at my other 4998 CDs. Please relax; it was just one comment, about how I'm really glad I'm one of the ones who likes music...doesn't just consider it something to have on in the car while I'm driving. You sound like one of me, so why are you b*tching?

Easy pal. I'm not sure that's where CD was coming from. I think one can also argue that just because something is popular doesn't necessarily make it good. I imagine people who know me may perceive my behavior as elitist as well but I just happen to enjoy less mainstream music than the "average Joe." Stevie Wonders and Eric Claptons only come around once in a while. That's what makes musicians of this caliber special. Now where's that Lady GaGa record at?

And you know what...good for your neighbor! (not so good for you...lol). At least she's passionate about it, and that was my point. YJC thought I was being a snob about the type of music people like; that's wrong. Sure, GaGa isn't my thing (although, truth be told...she's not what most people think she is)...but I don't judge people for their taste in music (ok, maybe a little...but I try to keep an open mind); my commentary was about people who are indifferent to music altogether. That's what I find to be sad.

If YJC is into Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Ben E. King, Eric Clapton...cool; those are all fine artists. Point is, he's into music. If I asked him to make an argument for why Stevie Wonder is so good...and how he shaped R&B, I bet he could make a damn fine one! He's not the guy I'm talking about. I'm talking about the guy (or gal of course) who says "I like music", but really only listens to what comes on the radio. Sure...it might sound judgmental, and it's not like I walk away from them at a party or anything...lol; there are other things in the world to have passion about about. It's just to me, anyone who just listens to what the radio puts in front of them...rather than seeking out music...isn't what I would consider a "music lover" (and yes, likely might not even know who the Pixies are. If you've heard them, and they're not your cup of tea, that's another matter altogether). BTW...I feel the same kind of disdain for the "audiophile", who has $20,000 worth of gear, and 20 CDs (or whatever his medium of choice is). To me...the reason to spend that kind of money on gear, is to have the music you love sound it's best; not just to show off Dark Side Of The Moon, or Norah Jones.

In any case...by definition, none of the people I'm talking about, would even be in this thread; so take comfort.

A little early-morning Sade, as I wrote my post. Now go ahead and criticize my musical taste...lol.

Oh, I find Ms. GaGa to be quite talented. My gripe is with someone who listens to any album daily - or worse yet, twice daily.

CDLehner you hit the nail on the head and I get where you're coming from better now.

The difference between someone who loves music and someone who listens to music is the former actively seeks out what they really like without being told what to like by either the mainstream or cool-guy hipsters.

Us and Them: Symphonic Pink Floyd. Don't now if anyone on here has had a chance to listen to this or not, but if you like Floyd I recommend giving this a listen. It's the London Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Peter Scholes, and produced by Youth and arranged by Jaz Coleman of Killing Joke. For anyone who is into metal or power metal I recommend listening to Crimson Glory's Transcendence CD. It had been a while since I listened to it, and Midnight's vocals are as powerful as I remember.
