    Never heard of that one. ^^^^^^^

    Weather Report - I Sing the Body Electric. (1972) 7/10

    More experimental (free flowing) than their Jaco era stuff...still reminiscent of the Miles Davis , In a Silent Way, B*****es Brew era when these guys played together (Joseph Zawinul and Shorter).. Also some Soft Machine loopy bits in there too. Has a few live songs recorded in Japan that are really powerful...good listen for any fan.

    Before and After Science--Brian Eno---first 2/3s of album: 4/10; last 1/3 of album: 8/10

    You can hear Eno practically give up the ghost of ever being a rock star on this album. The first eight lightweight cuts range from pleasant to mediocre to totally uninspired. But the final four cuts point the way to a new, more specifically ambient related direction. I also have a life-long soft spot for By the River, a delicate and wistful minimalist ballad that is as close to perfection as it is possible for this kind of music to get.

    4/5
    The North Borders (2013) by Bonobo. This album grew on me with each listen.

    Taking Up Your Precious Time (2006) by Pretty Lights. Downtempo bliss.

    3.5/5
    The King of Limbs (2011) by Radiohead

    3/5
    Piper at the Gates of Dawn (1967) by Pink Floyd. Finally giving this album a rating after many listens over the years. Pow R. Toc H. never stood out until now. Brilliant song. especially the last minute.

    Tribal Derivations (2007) by Beats Antique. Mellow, ethnic/tribal style instrumental music. Some boring moments

    Dusk to Dawn (2013) by Emancipator

    Saudade (2014) by Thievery Corporation. Bossanova style featuring female singers

    2.5/5

    Innocents (2013) by Moby. Better than his other garbage albums after "Play". 2.5 is probably generous, but it has its moments

    You're Dead (2014) by Flying Lotus.

    Tomorrow's Harvest (2013) by Boards of Canada. This album resonates with me, but doesn't excite me enough for a higher score

    Kanye West - My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

    Obviously all albums grow better with age but this would be a 8/10 for me upon my first complete listen

    Best Track: Hell of a Life

    Worst Track: None are skip-worthy, solid album.

    Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M (1964) by Simon & Garfunkel

    3/5
    The Scene Between (2015) by The Go! Team

    2/5
    ...And Then You Shoot Your Cousin (2014) by The Roots. I like how dark this album is, but it just doesn't deliver and isn't very cohesive.

    Funkadelic (1970) by Funkadelic. Groovy, psychedelic and soulful yet sarcastic and funny at the same time. I'm happy to have discovered this band. 3.5/5

    Have you heard their other albums yet? I love Free Your Mind and Your Ass Will Follow. Apparently recorded while completely high.

    Just the first 2 of Funkadelic/Parliament. So just "Funkadelic" and "Osmium". I'm going chronologically with them and 52 other bands. It will take some time, but I'm really looking forward to hearing more by them. They seem like quite an interesting bunch of musicians.

    Cannibal Corpse - The Wretched Spawn

    8/10

    It's the last Corpsegrinder era album I really like to be honest...

    Fats Domino Rock and Rollin' (1956) by Fats Domino. Pretty generic sounding and forgettable. Swanee Rive Hop is the only standout track. 1.5/5

    Lonely and Blue (1960) by Roy Orbison. Mawkish. Roy has a nice voice though. 1.5/5

    Bob Dylan (1962) by Bob Dylan. It's hard to rate this album because I can't not compare Bob versions some of these songs to the version of the old Country Blues artists that I love so much. He does a good job with them, but I still prefer the older versions. 3/5 ..a weak 3 though. That said I really like his original tune "Song to Woody" and his version of "Man of Constant Sorrow"

    Incunabula by Autechre - 3.5 (Great)
    Chiastic Slide by Autechre - 3.0 (Very Good)
    Amber by Autechre - 3.0 (Very Good)
    Tri Repetae by Autechre - 2.5 (Good)


    One of the more consistent and solid bands of the 90s, IMO.

    Jackson Browne - Saturate Before Using - 6/10. Smooth, super-slick piano pop from the 70's. I can't believe I like this but his lyrics are great and he's got a fantastic voice.

    Big fan of Isbell whether it's with the Drive-by Truckers, the 400 Unit, solo or even on his wife's songs. I haven't picked up his album from last year yet( have you? ), I'm sure I'll like it based on the few songs I've heard.


    I went on a little buying spree lately:


    ISRAEL NASH - Rain Plans(2013) 8.5/10 - Great throwback to the 70's trippy country/rock sound. Excellent headphones album. Favorite track(today) Myer Canyon:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g33DMj0x1IQ

    VAN MORRISON - Veddon Fleece(1974) 8/10 - I've been looking to buy this CD for years but not for the $40-50 it sells for, finally got the mp3 instead. Van The Man at his mellow best.
    Fair Play:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z1vYs5LBC3c

    THEM - The Complete Them 1964-1967(2015) 8/10 - As with Veddon Fleece I was waiting for the price of The Story of Them to come down. It did, but only because Van Morrison released this 3 CD 69 song compilation. Familiar greats like Here Comes the Night, Gloria, Baby Please Don't Go and a full CD of demo's, alternate takes and live versions.
    Call My Name:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KQTzkr95pHE

    ELMORE JAMES - King of the Slide Guitar(1996) 7.5/10 - Again 3 CD's 64 songs. Incredible voice and of course guitar work. Listening to the whole collection in one sitting was a mistake as the songs start to all sound the same. Easy fix to just select 8-12 different songs each time.
    I Gotta Go Now:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YUWDdVhimRM

    THE VELVET UNDERGROUND - The Velvet Underground(1969) 6/10 - Only a couple listens so far, but doesn't compare to Nico or Loaded for me. Might improve after some more time with this one.
    Beginning to See the Light:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J3gWi9bBkHQ


    up next:

    LEAD BELLY - The Definitive Lead Belly(2009)
    WUSSY - Left for Dead(2007)
    JANIS JOPLIN - Pearl(1971)
    THE VOLEBEATS - Solitude(1999)
    FUTUREBIRDS - Hotel Parties(2015)

    Awesome man. He's definitely one of the greatest living songwriters in the genre. Doesn't get talked about nearly enough.

    Definitely have heard his effort from last year. "Something More Than Free" made my top 5 for the year. You certainly need to check that one out.

    For now I still prefer Southeastern. It's one of the most consistently great albums I have ever heard.

    I dig your taste.

    Thanks for the reply and the compliment. I'll pick up Something More Than Free eventually, just need to get through the back log I just created for myself.
