Buckethead !!!


Depends on what style you want to hear. He plays many different genres.

Slow/Mellow-ish stuff: Electric Tears, Colma, possibly Shadows Between the Sky
Heavy: The Cuckoo Clocks of Hell

But most of his albums are a mix of heavier songs and slower ones.
I'd recommend starting with Albino Slug (the one with the extended solo in Forgotten Trail), Population Override, and The Elephant Man's Alarm Clock.

Frank Zappa please.


Joe's Garage
Hot Rats
Sheik Yerbouti

Then wade around the rest, they're all good to me but these are my favourites.

Hi, I wanna listen to Sergei Prokofiev, what is his best album plz? :3


He doesn't really have albums, as he was more or less someone who wrote for lots of ballet..

..But some his workings you may enjoy are,

The Tale of the Stone Flower
Dance of the Knights (Part of the Romeo and Juliet ballet)
Symphony No. 3 in C minor (Op. 44)
Sarcasms

because your answer didn't help! Well, the first part of it did but you probably just copied that from due or jambi

That's just a blatant insult.

Check out The First Three Years and Sleep is for the Week. I started with Love Ire & Song but didn't realise exactly how awesome he was until I checked both of those out a few days later (those are probably my favourites). Example of why All of his stuff is good though, so you can't really go wrong.

Poetry of the Deed and England Keep my Bones are both awesome. As a full album, I prefer the latter to Love Ire & song to be completely honest. It's more consistent.

Sheik Yerbouti

Good album for sure (one of my favourites as well), but probably not something to start with. It focuses more on the whole humourous aspect of Frank, which certainly isn't a bad thing, but something like Apostrophe is probably better to start out on.

Fair enough I'll go in chronological order then.

I'm listening to Love Ire & Song now. Me gusta :3

Love Ire & Song is definitely the best place to start for Frank Turner. Don't let anybody tell you differently.

Black Keys:
Rubber Factory for the older, rougher, more blues-based sound
Attack and Release or El Camino for the newer, slicker sound

Hmmm, I'd say Red Medicine for Fugazi. It's a halfway point between the stripped down punk aesthetics of the early stuff & the more daring & expansive approach to the later stuff. Also, it's my favorite. :3

Blonde On Blonde and Highway 61 Revisited.
Blonde On Blonde is a bit more bluesy and Highway 51 a bit more rock. Both amazing albums.

Desire from 76 is another absolutely amazing album. And Blood On The Tracks ain't bad either.

If you want his singer/songwriter stuff then Freewheelin, Times They Are A-Changin' and Another Side Of Bob Dylan.

Highway 61 Revisited got me into Dylan, so I'd say that.

I prefer Blonde on Blonde now, but that took a while to grow (mostly 'cuz it's longer & doesn't rock out as hard), whereas Revisited was an instant connection. "Tombstone Blues" is pretty punk rock, I think.

My statement still stands. The peak chart position in the UK was for a song of Poetry of the Deed, not Love Ire & Song. His highest charting album is England Keep my Bones. This is a garbage argument.

I really like The Argument, it's excellent. Not sure if it's for anyone though.

I think I kind of like Pavement. What album do I need to hear?

If no Repeater (wat.) then I'd say End Hits would probably be the easiest.


But Repeater (srsly wat.) is pretty much what Fugazi's all about. Turnover, Repeater, Blueprint, Greed.

That's all Repeater.

The '59 Sound (specifically the title track) or Sink or Swim.

I really totally absolutely love every Fugazi album, even Steady Diet of Nothing which everyone seems to forget about! ¯\_(ツ_/¯

I could go on all day about that band & how great everything they ever did was.

Regarding Pavement, I'll say Slanted & Enchanted and Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain. Those are my favs.

Quote by frankv
So these are their first two albums. Did they turn to shit afterward or what?

No, Wowee Zowee & Brighten the Corners are both solid, but they lack something, I think. I prefer Brighten the Corners to Wowee Zowee.

Have you guys listened to Mirror Traffic? I really love it.

well those two are pretty much classics so their next three albums are not really on par with them but they still are really good. a lot of people like wowee zowee as well. brighten the corners is my least favorite of theirs. terror twilight is underrated imo, really good album.

the cult , best songs?



Each album by The Cult is different.

"Love", "Electric", and "Sonic Temple" are their best (IMO).

"Love" is very psychedelic, "Electric" is more riff based, and "Sonic Temple" has the best production. They're all great, you can't go wrong with any of them.
I'd like to help, but not as much as I'd like not to.

Tom Waits and Frank Zappa please.


With Tom Waits around 1980 he changed from kinda weird jazzy stuff to a genre that only can be called 'Tom Waits music'. Rain Dogs is the album i got into him with so try that, or Swordfishtrombones.

Zappa, try 'hot rats', or 'zoot allures' or 'apostrophe'

Quote by beadhangingOne
Tangerine Dream: I've heard Rubycon and Phaedra, what else?

Also, this Nick Cave fellow. He keeps popping up in random discussions, I want to see what all the hubbub is about.


For Nick Cave due is correct
Quote by due 07
The Good Son by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds is very good. I was a h8r 'til I heard that album.

The good son is a good starting point, if you like Nick Caves softer piano music then get 'the boatmans call' , if you like his more harsh sounding music get 'henrys dream' or 'from her to eternity'. Although a good album to listen to would be a live album called 'live seeds' which is like a very good best of album of live versions.

Zoot Allures is a bit plain for Zappa (although I love it).

Probably easiest to start out with Closing Time for Waits, no?

Closing Time is one of his weakest if not the weakest album by Tom Waits and is hardly anything like the music he wrote later on. It's basically two different artists and most songs on that album are quite boring.

The albums I prefer by him are Rain Dogs, Swordfish Trombones and Blood Money.

Rain Dogs is definitely his best imo.

Eh i dunno, i'm a big Tom Waits fan but i still don't really think Closing Time is that great even today, this may just be how i feel on him but i have heard a lot of people say Rain Dogs is one of his best ones to get into.

I think 'the heart of saturday night' may be a good choice for a newcomer.
