    A:Thats REALLY hard between Anamanaguchi, The Album Leaf and Astralyte. I'd say that short term, the winner is Anamanaguchi, but long term the winner is Astralyte. The Album LEAf can not go without mention, though.

    B: Bloc Party.

    C: Coheed and Cambria.

    D: Daft Punk.

    E: Editors.

    F: Four Tet.

    G: The Go! Team

    H: Wow, I have a REALLY weak H selection.. I'd have to go with The Hush Sound.

    I: Imogen Heap. Her voice is crazy powerful.

    J: Justice.

    K: Keane. He sounds just like Ewan McGreggor.

    L: Len. They're the shit, and they'll fuck you up if you disagre.

    M: M83. Amazing.

    N: Nightmare Of You.

    O: f Montreal

    P: Although I just discovered them, I would have to say Pheonix. Theyre really good.

    Q: Queen, of course.

    R: Definitely Ratatat. They got it correct.

    S: The Shins, although Sabrepulse isn't very far behind. Neither are Silversun Pickups. Sublime also of course needs to be mentioned.

    T: Tim Halbert. Taht man is a musical genius.

    U: Mike Irish's project, Up And Atom Productions. Pretty good.

    V: Vanessa-Mae. She is amazing on the violin.

    W: Weezer, circa The Blue Album, kthx.

    X: I would have to say B-Town's project, Xenon Light.

    Y: The Year's Best.

    Z: The only artist I have for Z is Zox.. they do a MEAN Canon.

  • All I have to say...

    3 juin 2006, 16h52m

    All I have to say is that Neutral Milk Hotel sounds like a really bad junior high school concert band, where the teacher is trying to sing in a very bad music teacher kind of way.

    And that is that.
  • This Album is amazing!!

    18 mai 2006, 20h10m

    For those of you who like Dark Side of the Moon, or Pink Floyd in general, check out Water Sphere!! I really think the complexity of this album is comparable to Dark Side of the Moon. Its almost exactly the same length, has good lyrics, insane layering, and is pretty intense as an album. Each song is so different, but they all fit together so well. It almost sounds as if the album is a musical/rock opera.. Seriously, check it out.. its awesome.. Actually, I would go as far to say that Water Sphere is as good if not better, at least for my taste, than Dark Side of the Moon.. which yes, i know, is a sin.. but its that good. But dont let my words persuade you, check it out!! If anyone needs it, just send me a message.

    Also, does anyone have Pilotdrift's other album?? If anyone has it, PLEASE message me, i want to check it out.. Thanks!!

    Pilotdrift kicks ass.
    So i write them a haiku
    telling them such things.
