Hey lads lets have a thread of music recommendations, post anything to do with the kind of music you like; be it favorite albums, genres you like or an artist you think is cool and I'll try to recommend you similar stuff or new and exciting things that i think you'll like.
Heres my stuff
Top 10 Albums atm (in no order);
My favourite genres would probably be black metal, thrash metal, noise rock, jazz fusion, post-rock and singer-songwriter stuff
Ooh! Try DragonForce and Papa Roach!
Ey DragonForce is good fucking fun, if you like them check out Cirith Ungol and Warlock, Papa Roach isnt really my thing if im being honest.
DragonForce is amazing xD and I love Warlock, though I haven't listened to Corinth Ungol. Which song of theirs would you recommend I listen to?
Papa Roach...hmm, I only listen to "Scars", "Last Resort", and "Between Angels and Insects." I really like these songs for some reason xD
Ever heard of Tool or Disturbed? Or Seether? How about System Of a Down?
Arch Enemy and Killswitch Engage are really good as well.
Jeez. Never realized how many songs I have on my Spotify xD
Sorry XD I really like music.
Yeah i know them, Tool and System of a Down are alright, I don't really like Nu-Metal or Metalcore so im not really into the other bands, though if you have songs by them that you think would change my mind then share them.
As for Cirith Ungol i dont know an individual song but my favourite album is One Foot in Hell so i guess just listen to that.
I checked out them out, thought DragonForce was okay, but I really like Papa Roach. So far, my favorites would be Falling Apart for it's instrumentals and Hollywood Whore for it's lyrics and hilarious music video.
Oh! I forgot about those! Yes, Hollywood Whore is great.
I actually prefer parodies rather then songs, such as this one.
Minecraft Parodies? :o
Mainly minecraft, yeah.
Search out "Hyperdream Studio Minecraft Parody". Also, look at GizzyGazza's parody of Sing. :P
Then there's always ThnxCya's stuff xD
....yep, my music taste is weird.
Oh! That's a good one.
My favorite is
And it's an original one.
I've been listening to this on loop recently.
Dear god that is funky, you like the Talking Heads?
THIS IS NOT MY BEAUTIFUL HOUSE!
THIS IS NOT MY BEAUTIFUL WIFE!
Pink Season is out and I've been listening to it non-stop. Shit's fucking fire.
That Goofy's trial skit is hilarious not even gonna lie.
Oh yeah, that's why I love you.
Taken from my profile page:
Mad World-Tears For Fears
Boulevard of Broken Dreams
Who's Crazy/ My Psychopharmacologist and I - This is a musical, but I'll put it here anyways.
Exit The Premises
Im usually dont really like EDM but that Kevin MacLeod track i actually really enjoyed so thanks for sharing!
Maybe listen to Kidkanevil - My Little Ghost (the album not the song), but its downtempo so im not sure if youd like it.
Definitely check out Squarepusher - Feed Me Weird Shapes, its awesome D&B
Don't have the time to finish both the albums, but for the kidkanevil one, I found the first one too minimalistic, but the second and third one were pretty good in an abstract way.
I didn't like the first one for Squarepusher, but Tundra was fantastic, gave me the chills.
Thanks for recommending me these albums!
Hey man no problem, definitely keep listening to the Squarepusher one, it really grows on you. :)
Tears for Fears is too upbeat for the song
It's all about Gary Jules
Eh, I prefer the upbeat music with the depressing lyrics, comes closer in meaning to manic depression, which is what the lyrics are supposed to represent instead of depression. I still like the Gary Jules' version though.
Somehow, when Gary Jules and his superdepressive beat with überdepressive lyrics comes up, I feel happy. It is like those cartoon jokes where someone goes like 'it could be worse' and it starts raining and he gets mugged.
Personally, I find it more relaxing than comical.
Mastodon-Crack the Skye Album
Ay Mastodon's great, Leviathan would be my fave album by them.
I actually havent listened to much Opeth, what albums would you recommend?
You like Sleep or Electric Wizard?
I'm not big into extreme metal, so I'd say Sorceress. If you like the growls I'd recommend Deliverance.
Doom and Stoner's not my thing. It's boring.
Fair enough man, i only really like the more psychedelic side of Doom and Stoner i agree the slower stuff can be a bit boring, I mostly listen to stuff without clean vocals so I'll probably check out Deliverance then , thanks for the rec.
I like lyrics/intelligible vocals first and foremost.
Lol fair enough man, maybe check out Bloodbound - Tabula Rasa, the lyrics are nothing amazing imo but its an incredible vocal performance
Hmmm i cant think of anything super similar as I don't listen to a lot of folk metal but try these albums;
Falkenbach - Magni Blandinn Ok Megintiri
Cult of Fire - Ascetic Meditation of Death (this is metal mixed with traditional Indian/Hindu music rather than traditinal European music but its great)
Also Kamni - A.T.O.M is a mix of really psychedelic stoner metal with a bunch of eastern European traditional instrumentation
Let me know what you think! :)
I like owl city and music more relaxing. Never been a big fan of metal or rap.
My newest favorite metal band is Ghost B.C. My favorite songs from them are Square Hammer and Cirice. Definitely check them out! (If the demonic Pope is your thing.)
Ayyy Ghost is awesome fun, From the Pinnacle to the Pit is definitely my favourite, Cirice would still be top 5 though
Did you hear the theory that the Dave Grohl was the drummer at a bunch of their live shows? cool if its true
Not exactly a recommendation, but I randomly heard this song on one of those radio stations that plays the odder stuff recently and now I can't get the song out of my head.
And now I give this gift to you.
Thats a helluva something aint it
All for you Sophia is my favorite from them.
I love Carly Rae Jepsen. My favorite song EVER is her song "I Really Like You."
Mmm! I really like bo en, Kero Kero Bonito, tofubeats, lullatone, Spazzkid...That stuff is nice to study to. And catchy! I also like JRabbit and gesu otome + indigo la end. The main vocalist is great. The resonance in his tone is A+++
I've taken a liking to Stuart Murdoch's God Help The Girl album and I did the title song for my choir final. I think Belle And Sebastion is real nice... I used to be into okgo (I thought their music videos were cool)
Father Of Mine has been on repeat in my head AND IT WON'T STOP WOW
I grew up listening to a lot of Simon and Garfunkel though.
Ay Gesu Otome is awesome!
Maybe check out The Pillows, theyre not super similar but theyre another cool Japanese soft rock band
Godspeed You! Black Emperor is fantastic. Glad to see them (him? still not sure) getting some love.
Anyway I have to contribute Late Registration and The College Dropout. Some of the most beautifully produced albums made by humans.
Have you checked out A Silver Mt. Zion? they're a side project of some of the GY!BE guys and their first two albums are just as good as GY!BE's stuff imo.
Fuck yeah old Kanye is gorgeous man, such a shame his music just gets dismissed as stupid brag rap by some people because of some of the stuff he says in the media. :/
since WHEN were you ever a Yeezy stan (or listened to hip hop in general)? lmao werent you nd iqqih always arguing over him, didn't you hate his guts or something? wtf did i miss?
i kinda feel like ure just joking around. and if so shame on u man. The College Dropout is divine.
but if u arent tryna make a joke or something, i have to agree The College Dropout is def one of the greatest albums made of all time. perfect for blasting on days when u dont feel like giving a fuck about much or you're doing something illegal cuz u cant shine on $6.55. There are far better hip hop albums thatve been made imo (coughIllmaticcough) but its very high up there.
though i dunno about any music other than hip hop though cuz all ive ever listened to was hip hop.
Started listening when TLOP came out. Listened to it a bunch of times and then checked out his other stuff. The rest is history
What'd you think of 808s and MBDTF?
Also College Dropout or Late Registration? Which is better?
I love MBDTF. 808s is okay, but it's not fantastic. Definitely changed radio-pop for the better, though.
I feel like Late Registration is what Kanye was trying to accomplish with The College Dropout. He finally had the budget for a proper, rich orchestration and it's awesome. They're both phenomenal albums and you should listen to them both.

Yeah, I think LR's production is way better, but still find myself preferring CD.

Oh yeah, dude, I know. I love Kanye's stuff, even 808s which is like the black sheep of his discography (though that thankfully seems to be changing in the last few years).
Edit: Well, I guess I should change that to most of his stuff. Didn't care for The Life of Pablo at all. It's not a bad album, but I think it's his weakest to date (not including Watch The Throne).
Confession time: I kind of liked Watch the Throne. It takes a couple listens but I think I "get" it, now. Made in America, Why I Love You and Lift Off are trash, but the rest of the album is decent. I also really like Elly Jackson's hook on That's my Bitch
MBDTF is his best album so far.
It's his most celebrated, but I don't know about his best. I think you could make pretty compelling arguments of LR or Yeezus (or even CD) just as well
My top ten albums ever, in no particular order (highly, highly, HIGHLY recommended all of these).
