Capitalizing on Maet's suggestion in the Review thread, and assuming that BrainDamage will like the idea (of which I am sure ) I figured we might as well just do this.

This is a thread to discuss subjects that are found in either the Video, Recommendation or Album Review Project threads without cluttering them up. Since non-essential posts are deleted from those threads, this also helps reduce the workload of the mods a bit.

Rules

1. No spamming or flaming. Posts will be reported, and may result in warnings.

2. If you need to talk about a subject within one of the threads, please state the page number that it's on. This makes it so that people don't have to weed their way through multiple pages in order to find what you're talking about. Posting a link to that page is helpful too.

3. General questions about a particular band should go into that band's thread. Virtually all known CR bands have a thread for themselves somewhere in this forum, though they may be a ways back. If you can't find anything, feel free to post it here.

Thanks to Page&HammettFan for the rules.


Anyways, to start things off, I was reading the review for Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and I remember one of my friends telling me that With A Little Help From My Friends is one of (if not the) only Beatles song sung by Ringo. Found this interesting, perhaps it could be added to the review...

Okay, I can better articulate my idea.

Anyone who can recall the AotW's of yore will certainly remember that every album reviewed was an open thread, stickied, for people to throw about their opinions, praise and ideas. My suggestions in the Album Project thread was to designate a place for "lawful" discussion and praise of the albums present in the Album Project thread, much like the AotW's had. On top of that, it's a place to discuss ideas for future projects and recommendations.

The thing is, posts made in the Recommendations thread and Album Project thread get pruned and removed once they're accepted or rejected. No real place to discuss anything about them. My idea was to designate a place for it, instead of opening a can of worms and letting whacked out praise and outrage spill onto the forum.

Feedback from the man (BD), the bitch (Derigiberble), and anyone else is welcome (I suppose).
#13
I agree Maet; I was wondering how we could discuss reviews without littering the Review thread.

It seems a bit too structured and tedious for most people, I think.

The Video Thread should be revised, or possibly reissued. BD's got a lot on his shoulders in being the main mod here (Jono's disappeared and Biles pops in periodically). The album project is a bit simpler as reviews come in way less frequently then videos, so to keep a video thread dated and navigational is quite a hassle. That's why I think a fresh new video thread could work. Just unsticky the other one, and let whatever happens happen. It'd be easier on BD's behalf.

Album thread: My idea for a discussion place for the reviews still stands. Heck, psychodelia's on my side, so it can't be that stupid.

Recommendation thread: Same reasons for albums - A place to discuss albums and recommendations in the Album Project and Recommendations thread. It keeps the official threads nice and shiny, and we have a place to throw around ideas and what not.

So when it's all said and done, you have (stickied):

Classic Rock Video Thread v2 - Place for videos of pimped out crazy cool CR stuff.
Classic Rock Recommendation Thread - Same as it ever was
Classic Rock Album Review Project - Just organized reviews of CR albums. Same as we have now. No discussions (warns/bans for posts without reviews/breaking rules?).
Classic Rock Project Discussion - Place to discuss future projects, recommendations and albums, videos, etc.
The "ONLY" ____________ Thread - Zeppelin's had it for a year. Perhaps time for a new band (by audience demand, of course)?

And with that, I'm about ready to call it a night.

Sorry about the lack of rules, I was in a rush when I created it. I'll edit the post now and add them, feel free to remind me of anything I've missed.

Well I'm sure we'll add to them as the thread progressess. We'll generate new ideas to help keep this as mod-free as possible, leaving BrainDamage with less work

Now, as far as the Zeppelin thread goes. We're having difficulties staying completely on topic in there, so it might be time to be removed. It's past 300 pages at this point. I think that the next thread that should go in there, however, should be the ONLY Pink Floyd thread. It recieves the absolute most posts of any thread in this forum I think. It was the Zeppelin, but it has been rather slow lately. It is (obviously) completely up to BrainDamage as to if the thread is closed or not, but I think that the people who use it should discuss it. It's nice having it right there. Those guys are considered by many to be the best rock and roll band of all time (although tons of people disagree), so it's fitting that they are there. My dad says that he thinks Floyd are after them, but I think that Rush are. So I think it goes down to voting in the respective threads too. I don't know, BrainDamage might have thoughts too.

Thanks for the honor of recognizing me for the rules Jacques I think that all of the posts that have been made should be deleted now, because they are all spam now? Anyway, let's get on that and back onto the discussion that Jacques started.

Well, the Floyd, Zep, and Rush threads all do well without the need for stickying. I'd rather see a sticky go to a thread for a band that's not necessarily as talked-about on here, but that's just me. And it'd probably be pointless, but oh well, maybe a band that's in the middle could be found (people talk about them, but the threads sometimes get lost).

Well not Queen. If people really cared I think that they'd post. I mean, maybe we shouldn't have a band posted at the top? Maybe it isn't necessary? If people want to go into a thread to talk about a band, they can. Because like you said, there isn't any need for them to be up there. We have enough threads up now. Thanks for posting that, and I think that, for the time being, this should be the topic of discussion. It's a good topic.

I didn't read it yet, but I will to tell ya how ya did. I'm really woried about mine of George Bensons' Breezin, so how about we swap? You read mine, and I read yours?

I don't wanna make it mine, but for one thing you spelled entertainmed wrong. It was spelled intertained. But that's just a small typo, no biggie. You did a great job, and I'm pleased, and don't wanna sound picky or anything, but it'd be nice to have it setup similar to mine. This might sound kind of cocky, and if so, I apologize. But I'd like to see the writing credits and time length on each song. You'll see what I mean if you look at mine. How I set it up, and I'll use Time, from Dark Side of the Moon, because you're familiar with the album, is like this.

3. Time - 7:06
(David Gilmour/Nick Mason/Richard Wright/Roger Waters)

You see how, in parenthesis, I put the writing credit of the song? You could do this anyway you wanted, and I stole it from the Rush album "All the Worlds A Stage", because I thought it was a very tidy way to set it up, tell people who wrote the song in the band, and because it was the first album I'd reviewed for the thread and wanted to help capture the feel of the album. So, I used the first one that I did the kind of guide the others (although I re-typed it, after seeing how Angelus Mortem reviewed one and like how he wrote about each song itself). So all of mine look like that. Also, when I write the credits to each member on the album, I always include (if there is an existing one) the wikipedia article in a hyperlink if you don't know how to do this, then I can tell you, because it is a very helpful thing to know how to do). I also include the song time length, because it helps give the reader an idea of time length.

But this is just how I do it. Part of the review project is to capture how a bunch of people would review an album. These are but a few suggestions. One other thing that I do though, because typing them takes so long anyway, I always listen to the album as I type the review, because, no matter how many times you hear an album, if you hear it while doing it, you will put things in that may interest the reader. So this makes the review a bit more useful. I would like to read a bit more about each song, and the songs that you didn't include, because if spending my money, I'd like to have a good idea of what the album is like.

But you don't have to listen to any of this. As I said, these are only suggestions. You can do it any way that you want to. I apologize if I made it seem kind of bad, it was an awesome review. I know that I can make mine, as demonstrated with this post, run on and on and on and on and on for long periods of time, even though the songs don't really need as long of a review as I give.

What's to be worried about? I liked it, kinda makes me want to get the album.

One of the people down the hall is a big fan of his, maybe I could listen to the album from him... if it has a Leon Russell song, it can't be bad.

It's an awesome album. But of course, music is so subjective that what I think is mindblowing, you may agree that the musicians are great but you could end up hating it. That's why I don't say go out and buy the thing already But I have a feeling that you would end up liking it. It's a great album in my opinion, and you seem to have really great taste in music from all that I've seen. I'd like to say it's similar to your song Jules, but it really isn't. But it's not like normal jazz. I mean, from some of the jazz that I've heard, they play what I would call "wrong notes" (although according to Resiliance that's what a lot of people say when they are introduced to Jazz). He plays all notes within the major/minor scales (whatever the song key is in). I know you like Led Zeppelin, and I can't picture you disliking this if you like them

If so, did I do well?


I havent got it, or read the review but I'll read all of them eventually when I've got more time

Yea, basically. You still have the song number, writing credit, time and title. If you do it in bold though, it sticks out more. It just looks a bit more "tidy" among the hundreds of words that you end up typing. But again, just personal preference.

Thank you for reviewing my review. Don't worry about being too critical, I asked for criticism.

You made a few typos yourself. "Psycodelic" should be "Psychedelic." And there's at least one more in there. No big deal, again.

As far as writing too much, just make sure you don't say the same thing twice when it isn't neccesary. I didn't see a lot of that though. Most everything you typed was relevant.

I also really like your writing style. Almost like I was talking to you face to face.

Also, thanks for pointing out my lack of info on songs. I plan on adding more details to the songs I barely mentioned as well as the writers of the song and the time the song lasts.

Thanks for the crits I always enjoy the reviews to my reviews ( ) beign good

Good idea BD. Then you can make it more official. This thread is a good idea.

The album thread is a fucking hassle. I have to edit the post with sign ups when people sign up for/back out of a review and then when the review is actually submitted, I link it to the second post.

And if you are suggesting that in a new Video Thread I would l would edit all the videos into one big post, that can be done...actually, it would probably be less work then the album thread, considering I'd just have to copy the links and add them as hyperlinks.

I'm going to start and sticky a Project Discussion Thread where this can continue
