Are you sure you have that quote right?

I know there is a quote that goes, "reasonable men may differ in matters of taste." That is a more reasonable way to look at it, don't you think? I just cannot bring myself to be intolerant about people's musical choices .... in fact, this thread is less about music to me, and more about tolerance. We went through a couple pages there recently where I learned a few things about tolerance for what moves others, as I hope we all did.

And yes, k.d. lang's "ingenue" is as good as any album I have ever heard. Listen to "Save Me" or "Outside Myself" with an open mind. If you don't agree, fine, but at least you will have tried.

Yep.

"In matters of taste there can be no dispute" or "De gustibus non disputandum," as the ancient Romans would have said.

The quote is from Cicero.

http://www.delphia.co.uk/dominion_latin.html

In any event, no intolerance intended, homey - I can't fathom how anyone could rate K.D. Lang so highly, but I also know it's all "in the ear of the beholder," as it were, and I'm sure a lot of my favorite things would leave you scratching your head and saying "what the f@ck is he thinking?" so it's all good. :thumbsup:

I doubt Cicero had the plethora of music choices we have ;D

Seriously though, check up on k.d. lang, ask your friends. She is widely - and I do mean widely - considered among the greatest of all female pop voices ... that means with the likes of Streisand, Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, and for my money Benatar and Ann Wilson. You might not care for her style or her music, but there is no denying the voice. That beautiful instrument is not subject to these vagaries of taste.


I think lots of things are just imprinted, based on life experience at the time, etc. For example, Peter Frampton's 'Frampton' album - the last studio album before 'Comes Alive' - was imprinted on me at a particular period in my life. I am aware that my love of it is not widely shared, but that really shouldn't matter. If it moves you, it moves you. Lang's "Ingenue" and it's brooding moody aura came along at a similarly impressionable time for me. Unlike 'Frampton,' 'Ingenue' won Grammys and was univerally praised by critics ... but that makes no difference to my appreciation of it.

Another example shared in here, "On the Loose" by Saga, a song I've played at least 100 times the past month and still play during workouts. My adrenaline explodes with that thing, and that's a good thing. Or right now I'm practically bawling listening to Orbison's "Oh Mama," even though I have little doubt 99% of those on this board would lose their lunch over it.

I'm familiar with her stuff - I was in a few top-40 road bands back in the early 90s that covered some of her tunes.

I am aware that my love of it is not widely shared, but that really shouldn't matter.

Frampton was one of my top five influences and musical heroes when I was a kid starting out on guitar! (Along with George Harrison, Jimmy Page and Alvin Lee.) I worshipped the guy! From The Herd to Humble Pie to his solo career, I've bought just about every record he's ever made. When I was fourteen and lived in Evergreen, CO, my favorite record was Humble Pie's "Performance: Rockin' the Fillmore." I used to wait until my folks went out, and then I'd blast it at top volume. PF is one of the most shamefully underrated rock guitarists of all time, IMO. After the success of "Comes Alive" the press started focusing too much on all the peripheral show business razzmatazz and not enough on his guitar playing, sadly. During this same period, his career was pretty much hosed by a greedy, short-sighted, and incompetent manager (Dee Anthony.)

Another example shared in here, "On the Loose" by Saga, a song I've played at least 100 times the past month and still play during workouts. My adrenaline explodes with that thing, and that's a good thing.

I really dug that tune when I first saw it on MTV c. 1983. Those guys are all really accomplished musicians. I respect anyone who has really put in the time and hard work it takes to master an instrument or vocals - even if I don't care for the style.

That video also include a lead vocal from the late, great Bob Mayo at 1:20 ... damn good voice!

Actually, that's Steve Marriott saying "we go home on Monday..." - not Frampton.

Also, PF was born 4/22/50, so he would have been 21 when the Fillmore record was recorded.

It's Marriott.

One way you can tell is by the cockney accent (listen to the way he pronounces the word "Monday" for a good example.)

(Not that I need to know this to tell the difference - Humble Pie was my favorite band when I was a teenager.)

Marriott grew up on the east end of London, and Frampton was from the middle class borough of Beckenham, Kent.

If I remember correctly, that clip that Frampton played at the start of "Doctor" in that Youtube video was also used in the Marriott memorial concert that happened a few years back.

Pedal steel is a very expressive instrument. Not having to fret the notes allows a slick, fluid presentation of melody. A great steel player can put a guitarist to shame.

I always loved Jimmy Page's use of pedal steel on songs like "That's the Way" and "Tangerine" from Led Zeppelin III.

Also, check out the song "Theme from Skint (See You Later Liquidator)" by Humble Pie (from the album "Humble Pie") to hear some more awesome pedal steel sounds in rock context.

David Gilmour's use of lap steel on tunes like "Breathe" and "The Great Gig in the Sky" deserves honorable mention too.

I really like "Born In The Rain" but it seems to be the only track there where he really cuts loose in the Hendrix/SRV mold, the rest sound like Pat Metheny trying his hand at blues themes presented as lounge music, which (for me) is fine.....but only in limited doses. "Widow", "Six Eight" & "Ghouls" take an awful long time to really catch fire, almost too long.

So, what's more indicitive of Landau's song style? This long build up type of approach or that of "Born In The Rain" where he hits the ground running? 3 songs to 1 is a good indication, but far from conclusive.

I see his brother is married to Michelle Branch...lucky guy. She's long been one of my fave pop singer/songwriters.

I'm not sure if you're familiar with Landau's credits, but he's sort of like king of the mountain when it comes to studio guitarists in L.A. It would probably be easier to list the major artists who haven't hired Mike to play on their record or do their tour - and there's a reason for that. (BTW, Michelle Branch has used Mike for live dates and records more than once.)

Apart from his session and sideman work, Mike has been involved in a lot of original projects covering a pretty wide range of genres - everything from jazz/fusion to Hendrixy blues rock to alternative.

If "Born in the Rain" is more your taste, then you might want to check out Mike's band "Burning Water" (total balls-to-the-wall Hendrix meets SRV on steroids.) If you're interested, I can hook you up with an FTP download (almost all of Burning Water's stuff is either out of print or hard to find these days.) (BTW, there are videos of Michelle Branch with Mike on guitar on the FTP server too, if I remember correctly.)

If you're a fan of indie pop/rock, then you might also want to check out the band "Stolen Fish" (featuring Mike Landau and his wife Karen Martin.)

BURNING WATER also features brother Teddy Landau on bass, Carlos Vega on drums & David Frazee on vox, all incredible players in their own rite who add magic to the organic, retro-70’s bluesy heavy guitar power trio grooves. The band digs in deep to produce their best/heaviest disc to date.

They never do that and it always kinda bugs me. That's the first time I've seen them use drums on that one, too. They sound great, but the purity of the duo always struck me deeper.

Wow, love this. Thanks for posting. I will be looking more into them soon. Any particular album you recommend? They remind me a bit of the Stone Roses.

The Church is a band capable of great beauty, above that of your average jangle pop band of the age (R.E.M., Let's Active, etc.) They were often described as sounding like The Byrds if they were fronted by David Bowie. Inconsistant material and Steve Kilbey's penchant for weirdness prevented them from being much bigger than they were (are). So, other than the huge hit "Under The Milky Way", they are pretty much unknown in the USA.

My recommendations are to start with the best of Under the Milky Way: The Best of the Church...it has pretty much all the highlights and the stylistic detours that worked on it. If you need more, I'd stick to the earlier material like Of Skins And Heart & The Blurred Crusade..both of which are jangle pop masterpieces IMHO.

Here's a little sampling, cheesy 80's videos notwithstanding, the songs are just goregous

Zimmer's Hole- When You Were Shouting at the Devil...We Were in League with Satan. (2008)


Fantastic Album!!! Here's a review i did on it.





Origin
Formed in 1991 from Vancouver, Canada.

http://www.komodorock.com/images/stories/jreviews/4531_ZHCover_1204138245.jpg


Members
Chris Valagao- Vocals
Jed Simon- Guitar
Chris Stanely- Guitar
Byron Stroud- Bass
Gene Hoglan- Drums


Track Listing
1. When You Were Shouting at the Devill... We Were in League with Satan
2. We Rule the ****ing Land
3. Flight of the Knight Bat
4. 1312
5. Devil's Mouth
6. Vowel Song
7. Fista Corps
8. Anonymous Esophagus
9. Alright
10. Hair Doesn't Grow on Steel
11. What's My Name...Evil!

Style
Thrash/Death/Industrial hybrid


Highlight
I know this may come as a entire shock to some people but Zimmer's Hole was one band i hadnt given much thought too. Although the obvious SYL and Devin Townsend connections i just didnt care too much to check out this particular project by Jed and company. And although i havent heard any past releases i soon will be as this record is excellent. Zimmer's Hole is a metal band that not totally unlike SYL doesnt take itself that seriously and indeed utilizes parody in its song writing. Devin wasnt toally absent on this release though as he did produce the vocal production and it clearly shows as vocalist Chris Valagao sounds at times like a cross between Rob Halford and the Alien madman himself on this record. But with all that said this ****ing album OWNS. Parody or not the musicianship is outstanding and on point. Just a total unrelentless mechanism of crushing riffs and double hammered drum beats.

And just in case your curious, yes, overall the music is better on this record than the last SYL album just not as diverse. And you know coming from me that says a lot as im one of the biggest Dev fans out there. The great thing about this album is not only is it blistering heavy but hilarious on top of it all. The narration at the beginning of the Dethklok cover "The Vowel Song" is hilarious. Songs like "Hair Doesnt Grow on Steel" is paying comedic homage to the power metal genre. And obviously with songs like the title track "When You Were Shouting at the Devil...We Were in League with Satan" are laughing shots at the glam bands of the 80's. The band is just having a joy and great time with this record and it clearly shows. This album is something that everyone can listen too over and over again. Its that good.

Problems
The only problem i have with it and its really not a problem is that Chris sounds far too like Devin at times on here. And like the Warrell Dane solo project i think that Devin should of just sang on this record because it seems like something he would do anyway. Never the less, its not that much of a problem for me as i enjoy this record a lot. Moving on...

Final Thought
If your someone who loves the whole SYL sound and are bummed by the fact that they have disbanded this is a remedy to cure that hangover plus, you get to laugh in the process. This album doesnt take itself too seriously but it will kick your ass never the less.

This album is very underrated, having been Thompson's first release post-Pixies. Where Pixies were expected, Thompson gave quirky, well-written, lyrically outstanding songs that fit somewhere in between early ELO and Captain Beefheart. What was missed in the clamoring over the disappointment of yet again losing out on the next Doolittle or Surfer Rosa was a tight, creative, unified work that showed Thompson in a more sophisticated and mature exhibition of the same wit, hooks, and subject matter that made the Pixies transcend their peers, and even the subsequent generations of songwriters that the Pixies heavily influenced.

Un-freaking-believable. My favorite artist (among my top 3 anyway), and the one I spent numerous posts pimping in this thread barely a week ago, was appearing two nights in a row that very week. Further, she just five weeks earlier released Watershed (http://www.amazon.com/Watershed-k-d-lang/dp/B000XUO6T8), her first all-original album a nine years. Had I not moved dwntown, I wouldn't have known any of this ....

Both shows were A-FREAKING-STONISHING! I sat 12th row night 1, 6th row balcony night two ... and I dropped 60 bucks in the lobby for two CDs and her "Live by Request" DVD. I don't care what you low-brows in this thread think ... she is the greatest thing since sliced bread. Her voice AND her music.

I have kind of wide-ranging taste ... but yes, kd lang is the best. As good a singer as Bono I think, and that's saying something, cause in my view Bono channels God when he sings.

This Watershed album is moodier and more mellow than she's done before, but still a major piece of personal, emotive art.

Saw them open for R.E.M. on that band's Fables tour in 1985. They were okay for a neo-60's mid 80's band, although the vocalist could get a bit irritating at times (the effeminent voice I'm talking about here)

It looks like a fun show.

They could use to break the monotony and could use a little bit of originality, but the last ska-ggae fad has slunk off into the past so I guess that it is "new" again.

They're from the third wave of ska...you could call them a holdover from then. It's all cult status now but no matter, it's still cool stuff.
It's curious that they chose the most "ska" track from "All Day" to promote ( One of only two...I would've perferred one of the more straight soul/reggae numbers myself) but it's all good...the disc is really solid.

The shows are always fun, it takes an act of God for me to miss them when they come around. They're great guys to hang out with as well. I recommend them without hesitation.

I dont think Nirvana sent rock in a horrible direction. Like every genre you have your A class bands, B class bands, and C class bands. But Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, and Nine Inch Nails were some of the best bands to come out of that era. But, when you get a lot of copycats it progressively gets worse. Same thing happened to cock rock (hair metal). The scene just got flooded with subpar bands trying to cash in on the innovators of their era's.

Agreed.

Nirvana, though, was just rehashing things that had already been done before them, even in their own generation.

Cobain's influences are easily seen if you know what youre looking at. The biggest direct contemporary influence being The Pixies.

Also, Nirvana would not have been as widespread had Cobain not gone the coward's route and blown his own head to bits. People forget that Pearl Jam was the more palatable of the two as far as accessibility to the mainstream goes. It wasnt until well after Cobain's death that the Nirvana fans were no longer considered outsiders to the mainstream even of rock music. Your local football team could put Pearl Jam's "Evenflow" on the warm-up tape and not bat an eye, while the dude that dared put Nirvana's "Rape Me" would be ridiculed.

Nirvana's trajectory was sent through the roof by Cobain's suicide.

Had he remained alive, Nirvana likely would have released In Utero and then folded up the tent. Where would they be then?

Maybe out west. On the east coast Nirvana was huge before Cobain's death. Obviously his death put them on a questionable "legendary" status but they were quite popular over on this side of the states before he killed himself.

Sure.

"Teen Spirit", "Come As You Are", and "In Bloom" got airplay regularly by the big-buck outlets like Clear Channel, etc.

In Utero, however was recieved with curiosity. They had brought in Steve Albini to rough up/open up the sound of the album and and later Scott Litt (produced a few of REM's famous records) to clean up the singles.

Nirvana was beginning to push the envelope to legitimize their legacy. Cobain felt that he would not be able to continue to do so for very long in a meaningful manner.

Cobain said several times before his death that Nirvana was about to collapse under the weight. In all probablility, Nirvana would not have released another record at all if you take Cobain seriously. He was enjoying raking in the cash and shooting up dope too much, I guess.

I believe it. Seattle was home to a great many bands so i dont disagree with your point on that. It was definitely the album "Dirt" that got the ball rolling on the east coast. But the funny thing is i had become a fan of theirs prior to moving out in Maryland. I went to the Clash of the Titans show at Red Rocks in 90' which featured Slayer, Megadeth, and Anthrax. And of course Alice n Chains. A great many people were like WTF is this ****? They were definitely the odd band on the bill but it was than that they got a lot of respect from me as a fan. I remember some of the fans throwing stuff at AIC while they were playing. But, Staley always the cool customer was making comments like "Ha!, you missed me you big harry ****er!" I just thought that was the greatest thing for a band who was out of place that day. Great memories. Hilarious!

Incubus are probably one of the best rock bands of the era. Boyd's vocals are sometimes excellent, and sometimes redundant. He writes interesting lyrics and is dynamic within his range. This band is carried by the drummer Pasillas and the guitar player Einziger, both of whose quirky style and technical ability define the sound of the band.

"Primitive and Easy to Play," thy name is Neil Young.

As a guitar player, trust me that few if any can aspire to the heights of incompetence parading as skill than Young scales each and every time out. He open tunes all his hard-edged electric stuff (open tunings mean you get a fully formed chord just strumming open strings ... kinda like 'Guitar Hero'). Even my 12 year old nephew could manage a decent 'Cinnamon Girl' after maybe 90 minutes of instruction. And rarely if ever has rudimetary, ham-handed playing and sophomoric, warbling singing come together in a live one-man performance as starkly as "Needle and the Damage Done" on the Harvest and Decade albums.

But that doesn't mean Neil Young's music is BAD ... I happen to like Cinnamon Girl. And Needle and Damage Done is a hauntingly meaningful song that'll send chills up your spine if it catches you at the right time. I used to play it as a solo performer, and I'm here to tell you people ADORE that song -it stops 'em dead in their tracks.


My point is that musicianship and quality of musical product have little to do with each other. I can't play like Al Di Meola or Yngwie Malmstein, but I'd never listen to their music ... I play better than Neil Young, but I will always listen to him.

As a corollary to that "bona-fide fact," the Chargers probably have had the most pure talent on their roster the last few years, but they're routinely shown the door in Round 1 every playoff year. ONE playoff win this decade with the most talented roster. Go figure.


It should NOT be said that excellent musicianship has NO bearing on quality of music ... but excellent musicianship is judged on an OBJECTIVE standard, where great music is judged on a SUBJECTIVE standard. You can't tell somebody they shouldn't like the music they like, but you can (with sufficient expertise) correctly rate which are the most talented musicians. Some people like Creedence Clearwater better than Led Zeppelin ... and no matter how clearly you prove the "bonafide fact" that CCR are just marginal musicians, they won't abandon them for Zep's groundbreaking virtuosity, no matter what.

Thus, SKILL = Judged Objectively ... ENJOYMENT = Judged Subjectively.

Along those lines, personally I find music from innovative and creative musicians far more interesting than purely talented players ... thus, Rolling Stones beat Yes, Jimmy Page beats Hendrix.

My point is that musicianship and quality of musical product have little to do with each other.

But "quality" is always subjective.

In other words, "quality" = "what pleases me."

And it also depends: what are you trying to say musically, and how much musicianship is required to get your message across?

If your only goal is to be the guitarist in the Rolling Stones, then, obviously, less musicianship is required than if your goal is to, say, play the music of Andres Segovia or John Coltrane.

But I get your drift - Neither Keith Richards nor Neil Young are exactly virtuoso musicians, but I still dig them. Conversely, I share your sentiments re: DiMeola and Yngwie - they both bore me (not because they play with a lot of technique, but because of what they do, or don't do, as the case may be, with that technique.)

It should matter, just on the grounds for maximum exposure, if nothing else. You never know what you may find worthwhile in a genre that you don't really care for...and there's really only one way to find out.

Now, that's JMO mind you...I know many are not as passionate and obsessive as I am when it comes to this stuff. I know not everyone enjoys searching for gold. Maybe it is just my obsession to hear everything that I possibly can or maybe it bounces back again to the review work I used to do, but to willfully turn a deaf ear to something without checking it out at all smacks of ignorance to me, especially when one prejudges something based upon the genre itself. I'll never understand such things.

Now I'm not saying I'm accusing you of that in those terms, but if that shoe fits for anyone....they are not doing themselves any favors.

Case in point: I'm not a country music fan. In the late 80's to early 90's, I was presented with a steady parade of what I felt were pretty faceless performers who all followed the same formulas....so I sat thru album after album of your Randy Travis and your George Strait's et.al. trying to find something distinctive and was presented one day with Lyle Lovette And His Large Band. Now I could've just sat it aside and said "Just another country album" and wrote it off out of hand, but that would've been unfair and is as great a crime to me personally as someone being a bandwagon fan in sports. Since I'm all about fairness and giving everything a shot, I put it on and was very pleasantly surprised by it......it remains one of the few C&W albums I continue to own to this day.

I never would've found it if I didn't consider checking out everything I can to be extremely important.

Since I'm all about fairness and giving everything a shot, I put it on and was very pleasantly surprised by it......it remains one of the few C&W albums I continue to own to this day.

I never would've found it if I didn't consider checking out everything I can to be extremely important.

I do music for a living, so 'maximum exposure' is part of my daily life. I never know from one week to the next what style of music I might be called upon to play. I think over time (and with enough exposure) we all discover what kinds of things really speak to us and what kinds of things don't.

BTW, the guy who played bass on my last original project did several records/tours with Lyle Lovett. Small world.

I once rode in a Town Car with three members of the Long Beach Dub All-Stars (formerly Sublime) from a famous recording studio at 5th and Fairfax to Long Beach... they were amazingly regular guys except the singer Opie, who was weird - purposely over-aggressive.

What's that studio LABF? West sde of Fairfax at about 5th ... owned by brothers ... some of the famously muddy Led Zep 2 tracks were recorded there?

But that doesn't mean Neil Young's music is BAD ... I happen to like Cinnamon Girl. And Needle and Damage Done is a hauntingly meaningful song that'll send chills up your spine if it catches you at the right time. I used to play it as a solo performer, and I'm here to tell you people ADORE that song -it stops 'em dead in their tracks.

But every junkies like a setting sun

That is one of the best lines in the history of rock.

Cool, I was born and raised in Long Beach.

I was around when they were small time.

Its funny to see a band grow up and make it big time right before your eyes.

Very well put.

My position exactly.

BTW, +1 on the Neil Young appreciation thing. :thumbsup:
Like anybody, I love Young's songwriting ... but I must admit to feeling conflicted about his rudimentary singing and playing. When I watch him hammering away on that open-tuned Les Paul, the same 7-8 bend for 32 bars in a row, I get kinda queasy sometimes. And then I catch sight of the Hendrix button on his strap, and I have to roll my eyes.

But the surefire proof he is straight up delusional about his musicianship came at the Oscars maybe 12+ years ago. His song "Philadelphia" (from the movie of the same name) was nominated for best song, and when it came time to perform it, I was shocked to see him sitting at a grand piano, intending to sing AND play. Needless to say, both suffered tremendously as his sophomoric falsetto lost much of its charm as he struggled to hunt and peck the notes of the song, missing several and awkwardly losing the tempo of the piece. He turned his poignant, moving song into an underskilled lesson in humility ... on the largest entertainment stage in the world. It wasn't "humiliating" per se, but a real piano player would've pumped a good chunk of depth into the rendering for sure.

The weird part is (as several have pointed out in this thread) they actually agree 90% of the time. They just choose to express their agreements in argumentative terms.

No no no ... definitely not, there's no 'cluster' of any kind here. In fact, we're intruding on their discussion.

Go back through the last 15 pages of this thread ... there's some great stuff in there if you look beyond the surface-tension masquerading as disagreement. They'd be just fine with their very own thread. I for one wouldn't miss a post :thumbs:

I know you're a session guy (hell, maybe you're even one of the Landau's for all I know) and that you're hired to play all kinds of things..but that's not really the point I was making with the Lovette example. C&W doesn't "speak" to me on the whole at all and yet, if I didn't keep checking it out, I would've never have found that wonderful album.

Of course, to be really totally honest about things, Lyle Lovette And His Large Band has very little C&W on it...it's really an album of swing music not too different from Joe Jackson's Jumpin' Jive....the two albums together made one hell of a car cassette tape back in the day, but I digress.

Not one of the Landaus (I wish!) just a second-tier guy.

I'm not a country fan either, but I listen to all those great country guitar players and try to cop as many of their licks and techniques as possible. I try to incorporate those techniques and ideas into my own style (and knowing how to play some country = more paying gigs.)
