sablespecter's Album of the Year for 1971 (RDF: 87.5%)
Well, duh, no surprise here. Predictable I suppose, but...how could this not be my AotY for 1971? And yet, this is the *first time* in the entire run of the SotD Journal that I have chosen a track from this album. Maybe I've been subconsciously holding out on this album because I specifically DON'T want to be predictable. In fact, every other studio album except In Through the Out Door has provided a track for SotD, as has The Song Remains The Same. So anyway, it's about time!
At the same time, what more could I write that hasn't possibly been written about the album? Whether the various names it's known by - "Zoso" shouldn't be one of them since Jimmy Page's symbol isn't really a word - or the 40 million copies that have sold or its continued presence on countless "best albums" lists (even though it didn't manage to hit #1 on the charts), there's not much more that I can add objectively.

Original Album: Space Ritual
(Note: This is a backpost, one of a series. Duty in First Life calls sometimes...)
Seeing that I mentioned Hawkwind and space rock yesterday, I thought I had better pull a selection from Hawkwind today, since they are likely the first true space rock originators, formed in the late 60s and continuing through various confusing lineups to the present. I admit there are two reasons why I sought out Hawkwind: (1) I used to be a big fan of sci-fi writer Michael Moorcock, who was an occasional collaborator with Hawkwind, and (2) Lemmy.
Most sci-fi fans that have been around as long as I have probably has and/or remembers those 1970s Michael Moorcock sword-and-sorcery fantasy/sci-fi novels, with those armored and muscular warriors carrying large swords across weird starscapes. Envision lyrical content that evokes that imagery meshed with comics and physics and that's what Hawkwind wrote about.

13 juin 2007, 16h38m par pathfinder_kmaНє, ну Yeti теж харош, дуже харош, особливо Cerberus та всі імпровізації. Але щоб я слухав 20-хвилинний епік підряд п'ять разів - такого давно не пам*ятаю. Чудові гітара і скрипка, напівбожевільні волання і шалена енергетика - цим характеризується весь альбом, але титульний трек - квінтесенція музичного уїбанства. А уїбанство при хорошому володінні інструментами - хіба це не чудово?
Коротше, вибір тижня Amon Duul II- Phallus Dei.
P.S. А є ще Hawkwind. Скачав собі In Search of Space - альбом, в якому грав басист Дейв Андерсон. Так що тепер у мене ще один улюблений басист, у зв*язку з чим всі мої топ-п*ятірки розширюються до топ-сімок. Адже справді - улюблених музикантів має бути багато.
P.P.S. Тепер серед моїх улюблених музикантів 3 Андерсони :) Хто більше?

31 jan. 2007, 9h36m par frolix22The last couple of years may have been the most fruitful in my life as far as discovering new music is concerned. Some of it has been of my own discovery, much recommended, with last.fm contributing recently.
On a whim, and also partly to clarify things in my own mind, I've decided to record my 10 favourite records. The rules I have set are as follows: 10 favourite records plus one or more groups of 10 further records which could, depending on mood, gradually shifting tastes or other factors, swap in; only one record by any particular artist or band in each group of 10; no compilations or 'best of' albums; no live albums.
In no particular order:
Music Has the Right to Children
Warp Records 1998
A magnum opus from the Scottish IDM maestroes, Boards of Canada, Music Has the Right to Children is nothing short of mesmerising. Instantly accessible, entertaining, yet rewards careful listening. High Point: Happy Cycling.

41 & never written an on-line journal before.
Currently listening to Hawkwind Live Chronicles.
I've loved this band since In Search of Space. Live is very techie, whereas ISOS has some acoustic instruments (like clarinet) as well as synths.
The early stuff led me on to Gong & even Patti Smith, but its all space rock to me.
I'm currently working through transferring my old vinyl to my PC, so there's still room for a lot of old stuff to come across. Hopefully I can add an entry for the albums I do bring. Each one needs copied to disc, split into tracks then converted to mp3.
I haven't seen much live music recently - something I hope to change. The most recent was The Sensational Alex Harvey Band (obviously without Alex). Great concert - Max Maxwell isn't Alex, but he made a good frontman nevertheless.
