Would you recommend to everybody else on the boards right now and why?

Gov't Mule-Dose; it's great and full of versatility. Great musicianship and all the instruments tones kill!

maudlin of the Well - Bath



I can't recommend this album enough. There's just so much musical diversity on it, ranging from death-doom to prog to jazz to acoustic ballads.

Geography


Heaven and Weak


Birth Pains of Astral Projection


It's definitely a bit "avant-garde", but I really enjoy it.

I shall check out both of these! I've been meaning to give Gov't Mule a chance

I'd recommend Ween's "The Mollusk"


Each song is a delightfully twisted journey through a different musical genre, all tied together with a dark nautical theme. One of my favorite albums ever.

I remember listening to Ween as a teenager but I can't remember what album(s), I think one of them had "Country" in the title and Chocolate & Cheese.

12 Golden Country Greats! Not a lot of bands can get away with an entire album of country tunes, haha.

The Mollusk was probably the last Ween album I remember hearing all the way through, good stuff like all their records. My personal favorite is still Chocolate & Cheese. Very talented pair.

Piss Up A Rope from 12 Golden Country Greats cracks me up whenever I hear it.

I always recommend this...



20 years after its release, this album still makes me want to drink grain alcohol, set stuff on fire and punch people at random.

... I mean that in the best possible way.

I'll have to check out that Ween album, it sounds pretty interesting.

Same goes for that Warrior Soul album, I've been meaning to check that one out for a long time now. Does that one have "The Loser's" on it? I really dig that song.

Semi-related; does anyone here like Kate Bush? I enjoyed some of the songs she collaborated with Peter Gabriel on, and I'm wondering if her stuff is any good.

She is certainly unique and has an amazing voice, not overly thrilled with the overt electronic direction of much of her work, but she is definitely worth investigating.

I'll try to spin some of these other recommendations over the next couple days.

Warrior Soul was a band I attempted to get into on a couple occasions (after seeing them live) but they never really clicked with me.

I listen to her every once in a looooooooooooooong while. I'd recommend 'Wuthering Heights'.

"The Losers" is on their debut album, LAST DECADE DEAD CENTURY, which is also a worthy listen. But then, I'm a Warrior Soul fanboy as most of you already know. Very Happy

Blue Oyster Cult- Blue Oyster Cult

I'm sure most of you have already heard it. But, it's a perfect record. So atmospheric.

Maudlin Of The Well's Bath is a good album, it's dense though and will take more listening to for me to fully appreciate it. Thx, Met!

If you liked that one, it has a companion album (released simultaneously) called Leaving Your Body Map that's stylistically quite similar.

I totally agree with you on the album's density, I've probably jammed it 7 or 8 times now.

I just jammed that one, I wanted to jam them both one after the other and see after about 5 spins of both which one I like better.

T.R.A.M.-Lingua Franca

Like I've said before one who's really well versed in Jazz will either like it or hate it b/c I feel that the drums and horns are just too pretentious and the occasional vocalizing is jarring as well. Javier Reyes and Tosin Abasi make this album for me.

Sieges Even - The Art of Navigating by the Stars


This band is highly underrated, they deserve a lot more praise than they receive. In my opinion, this album rivals some of the most accomplished concept albums out there (A Pleasant Shade of Grey, Operation: Mindcrime, etc).

The rhythm section is phenomenal, consisting of brothers Alex (bass) and Oliver (drums) Holzwarth. There is some seriously tight material on here. The vocals are quite good as well, a great change for Sieges Even, who in the past had some really mediocre vocalists. The guitar has a great clean tone throughout the majority of the album, which adds nicely to the atmosphere and feel of the songs.

I highly recommend giving this album a listen, it's one of my absolute favorites.

Ok, I'll jam it. I'm going to undertake the Cirith Ungol discography in depth after I jam Black Country Communion again.

I'll get around to doing the fourth album in the Cirith Ungol discog thread sometime this weekend.
