There needed to be an Orchid thread, i didn't find one, and they are great.

I put Gatefold on today, i'm on Tigers (my favorite Orchid song!!), i found out i have the 3rd pressing, i thought i had better.

Discuss Orchid and their greatness.

I've heard so much about them and listened to some songs and enjoyed them a lot. Unfortunately though, I don't have any albums. Recommended albums to start with?

The first album I got by them was Chaos Is Me; I think that should sate any temporary Orchid craving. Generally, it's all top notch music and should be heard in its entirety. Their drummer is so unbelievably good as well.

Thanks guys, looks like I'll be checking out Chaos Is Me.

Dance Tonight! Revolution Tomorrow! was the first one I got by them. I need to start listening to them more, I've gotten away from this type of music alot.

^same, but I think getting the albums chronologically is the best way to go. Does anyone know if there's a way I can get that youtube video that I posted onto my iPod?

I like all of their albums. I especially like the songs I am Nietzsche, a visit from doctor goodsex, tigers, epilogue to a carcrash, 36 day syndrome, death of a modernist and ...And the cat turned to smoke.

favorite at this point is probably dance tonight... due to me owning that on vinyl (and being one of my first records). the two amherst pandemonium songs kill as well.

I'll probably be buying that again soon since I sold you mine and I miss it sometimes.

follow the link in the description box, download the video and convert it with a program that can handle .mov files.
or
use http://vixy.net/ or something like it to do it for you online. not sure how the video quality will be from this though.

anyways, i'd also say that Gatefold is their best album and Tigers is probably my favorite song by them.

I am very fond of this band, especially Dance Tonight!
This band is chock full of great riffs, and their drummer is great, as mentioned before.
They can get kind of silly/pretentious with their little intellectual references and what not.
"I kiss the girls that speak Marcuse.
I kiss the boys that speak Foucault.
I love the kids that know Adorno
and snub their nose at kids who don't."
It's just a little too over the top hahah.

Good band, backed hard. A lot of people like them more than I do though. I find the sound kind of tiresome after a while. Too many octavez.
