    These are one of the only few rappers that I actually like. This guy isn't a follower. He truly expresses himself, and promotes peace, unlike all of the modern day rappers, who try to act cool, and are all followers.

    Gary Moore [RIP] from Belfast, Northern Ireland, deserves a couple of pictures (the first from the Black Rose tour).​

    Didn't he have a solo career? I recognize him now from my time when I was looking at guitarvideos on YouTube all day.

    I saw Lonerism on your list. How do you feel about Currents? I like the funk influences. I also like Jamiroquai Traveling Without Moving.

    Indeed. In the mid 70s he played on three jazz-rock fusion albums by Colosseum II. After an album with Thin Lizzy, Gary Moore spent the rest of his years as a solo artist (he died at 58). In the 80s he played rock (sometimes quite heavy). From 1990 he played a blues and blues-rock fusion style.

    Yes, but I don't have a guitar at the moment in Moscow where I live, it's back home in Sweden.
    Currents is a good album but it isn't half the album that Lonerism is. That said, Lonerism is the greatest record made in the last 15 years so that isn't saying much against Currents. It annoys me that Currents is the more successful of the two. Other than that I have not much to say about it. I'll check out Jamiroquai.
    Interesting. I remember seeing his solo stuff on YouTube which was just guitar porn if I remember clearly. I think it was Still Got The Blues he was playing.

    Listened to the Camel record. I don't know if these guys wrote the book on prog-rock but it definitely is a complete representation of the genre. You got the quick tempo changes, the scale pornography, the flute. Everything you need for a good 'ol prog-time while remaining surprisingly jazzy. The musicianship is of course, as I knew beforehand, at a very high level. Very interesting guitar-tone and synth sounds that you can tell was either inspired by or inspired Chick Correa, if it was weirder it could be a Return To Forever album. The interplay between the flute and the keys is quite something. It's a very even album, which is to be expected of this kind of instrumental noodling. But Nimrodel and Lady Fantasy stand out only because they are greater in scope.

    Good record.

    I think Currents is more popular because it aligns with the present fad of funk influenced pop

    Maybe. I think it's just that it's more accessible. I really wish he would have stayed the course and made another album in the same style as Lonerism.
    I'm doing this one now.

    @PMS what's your take on The Strokes? specifically Is This It/Room on Fire. I first heard those two albums when I was 22 and I was legitimately angry that I hadn't found them sooner. killer thread btw

    I haven't listened to Room on Fire yet. Is This It is an amazing record, every song on there is killer. Trails a little after NY City Cops but still a huge album. Shows that attitude, feeling and good production can go a long way. The same was the case with early Oasis, Definitely Maybe. Before they went all soft with Morning Glory. Is This It is really all about the choruses, they just hit so hard. And the vocals are insane, with that distorted sound.
    I'll gladly talk about Paul's Boutique. I'm not that big on Licensed To Ill, I really think they shine the brightest when they just go full hip hop as they do on PB. The greatest sample work ever? Well besides Madvillainy. And Beck's Odelay, which was produced by the same people that produced PB. They're called something like: "The .... Brothers", I'm too lazy to look it up. Huge album.
    I'm usually quite open-minded when it comes to peoples varying opinions on music. But if you're a human being that thinks DAMN is Kendrick's best album then I don't know where to begin with you. Considering that TPAB is top 5 greatest hip hop albums of all time and DAMN is nowhere near that. Not that DAMN is a bad record, it's just way more uneven and the artistic diversity and bravery is toned way the fuck down. You better talk some sense into those people.

    I still need to listen to it fully, ive only bumped a couple songs by this album
    DAMN is a great album my dude. But i do think TPAB is a better album. I will say DAMN is way more popular than TPAB but as we all know, that doesnt mean much in terms of talent and being a better album. GKMC is dope too.

    I just think GKMC & DAMN are easier to listen to in terms of current hip-hop. But that being said, i prefer TBAP 100%. Whats that song at the very end w the "interview" w pac? Mortal man? That was really dope.

    Fun fact, if you didnt know already, that was an album originally supposed to be dedicated to Tupac.

    I disagree. DAMN isnt a bad album by any means. TPAB > DAMN tho. I can think of 5 albums that can be reasonably better than TPAB or at least a converstaion.

    Illmatic, Enter the wu tang (36 chambers), marshall mathers lp, college dropout, ready to die.

    Thats not necesarily my top 5 list just thibking out loud here.
