for when you just want to make random commentary on whatever music you're listening to/thinking about/whatever, but don't feel like it's threadworthy, or that there's a decent thread to put it in.  just a place to let it out wink.gif i'll start

i need to explore more of the allman brothers band's catalogue.  "brothers and sisters" is a great album, as is "eat a peach"

Beck's Sea Change is one the most perfectly paced albums ever.

Suicide's "Frankie Teardrop" is the scariest song ever recorded.

The peformances on Neil Young's Live at Massey Hall 1971 are superior, more powerful (to me) than the same songs on Harvest.  Don't why Harvest is so rated when Neil Young has done so many other (better) albums.

Jim Morrison got his feelings hurt when he was a kid and turned to drugs and alcohol and writing bad poetry to cope with it.   laugh.gif

Towa taya taka tai!

Agreed, it's one of his best solo efforts.

Big Star are fantastic.
September Gurls is the finest jangly guitar pop song ever written.

My own random thought?
Daniel Johnston's voice drives me nuts, but he composes amazing melodies out of nowhere. A genius.
