Oo, Grateful Dead.

I haven't heard that album yet. No Ripples, how unfortunate.

Tonight I felt like listening to Quadrophenia, and I remembered having chosen the album for The Circle of Sound, some two years ago. Well, it's been a long time since anyone has done one of these, so I thought I'd post one of my all-time favorites:

Strange Days
By: The Doors




Released during the Summer of Love, in 1967, the psychedelic Srange Days was the second studio album to be released by The Doors. Even though at the time it had sold quite poorly, it is often regarded as their best album.

My favorite song on the album is the eleven minute long closing track "When the Music's Over", followed by the cool "I Can't See Your Face in My Mind", and finally, "Moonlight Drive". All in all, it's a very groovy album that will have you dancing like a flower child from start to finish.

Side one
Strange Days – 3:11
You're Lost Little Girl – 3:03
Love Me Two Times – 3:18
Unhappy Girl – 2:02
Horse Latitudes – 1:37
Moonlight Drive – 3:05

Side two
People Are Strange – 2:13
My Eyes Have Seen You – 2:32
I Can't See Your Face in My Mind – 3:26
When the Music's Over – 10:58

Enjoy.

Hmm...I haven't listened to this one for a while. A couple years at least. Same with their debut. Personally I'm more of a debut guy, but this is a quality album too. I'm a big fan of the song with the keyboard...oh wait, that's every song by them! Yeah I'll re-acquire this one, legally of course siiw and give it another whirl. I really like My Eyes Have Seen You, and People Are Strange and When the Music's Over.

*crickets*

I had my first listen today...it was a bit rough. I feel there isn't much depth to this album, it feels superficial musically and lyrically. I don't mean to damper anybodies enthusiasm, I just think this album isn't the greatest the Doors made by any means. It just sounds kind of hollow.

<mod>This album contains a reasonable amount of explicit language, edgy imagery and, God forbid, socially relevant issues. Listener's discretion advised, specially if that's not quite their thing. Myself, I'm definitely going to listen to this at work over the week. oh maan</mod>

K.O.D.

Tech N9ne



Well, no one had done anything with this in a while so I thought I'd go ahead and post something. Why this album? The short answer is that is the album that is responsible for getting me to a point where I could tolerate and listen to rap.

All in all this is an excellent album. It has excellent depth lyrically, and really expresses the darkness and struggles that Tech was going through at the time. As far as the actual vocals go, lets just say Tech N9ne is one of the best, if not the best, in the game. The diversity is incredible; one minute it's machine gun like speed raps with perfect enunciation, the next a slow smooth rhythm dripping with emotion, blink again and its excellent jazz singing.

All in all I enjoyed this album because of the overall depth, and the diversity of styles. Tech N9ne really can do just about everything, and it makes for a really fun listen.

While most of the songs on the album are excellent songs, there are definitely a few that are just party songs. They are fun if that's what you are looking for, but generally don't have much lyrical substance or depth to them.

Highlights include; Show me a God, Demons, Blackened the Sun, It was An Accident, Shadows on the Road, Low, and K.O.D.

Tracklist
1. Show Me a God - 3:41
2. The Warning (Skit) - 0:31
3.Demons ( Feat Three 6 Mafia ) - 5:21
4. Blackened The Sun - 4:24
5. Strange Music Box Ft. Krizz Kaliko And Brotha Lynch Hung - 4:09
6. Sundae (Skit) - 0:44
7. Check Yo Temperature Ft. Sundae And T-Nutty - 4:30
8. B. Boy Ft. Big Scoob, Kutt Calhoun, Skatterman And Bumpy Knuckles - 5:27
9. Hunterish Ft. Irv Da Phenom And Krizz Kaliko - 3:45
10. The Pick Up (Skit) - 1:13
11. In The Trunk - 4:23
12. Pinocchiho - 2:08
13. Horns Ft. Prozak And King Gordy - 3:57
14. Interview with Jason Whitlock (Skit) - 2:06
15. It Was An Accident Ft. Alan Wayne - 3:42
16. Shadows On The Road - 3:26
17. Low - 3:31
18. Messages (Skit) - 1:36
19. Killing You - 3:34
20. Leave Me Alone - 3:50
21. Prayer By Brother K.T. (Skit) - 0:40
22. K.O.D (Introducing Mackenzie O'Guin) - 5:12
23. The Martini Ft. Krizz Kaliko - 5:28

Warning: This album gets very explicit at times. If thats a major turnoff for you in music I wouldn't recommend K.O.D.

Album lyrics here, if you click song name it'll autoplay the song as well (and there's a nifty "play all" link as well). So far, wow. I don't know how to appreciate hip hop in all its diversity, and this guy's style definitely falls out of my previous knowledge.

He's a damn virtuoso! His voice and how he plays with it, the asyncopated rhythms, the lyrics with their powerful imagery and all the rage and the melody — it's explosive! This is a very dark album and I love the feelings and doubts it expresses; these are very real. Every song leaves me wanting to talk about it. Awesome.

Another display of how hip hop is definitely the rightful heir of rock music.

Yea, Tech is about as good as anyone I have ever heard when it comes to rap/hip-hop, and he is incredibly versatile. He can speed rap, stacatco, tongue twisters, smooth, and sing pretty well. Plus his general style is infectious and fun to listen to.

I think one of the things I really love about the guy is that he does things his way. If you listen to his interviews he wants more than anything to be known worldwide and have massive success, but he won't take the easy way out with a major label record deal because he doesn't feel he would be able to make music thats true to him. He have to fake shit he isn't feeling and be constrained in the ways Tech wants to express himself. He does alot of his stuff based on what he is experiencing; KOD was made during a really tough time in his life when his mom was fighting all kinds of stuff, a friend had recently died, etc so the music was very dark and depressed cause thats what he was going through.
