    Nico Marble Index (plus alternate takes and unreleased songs)

    This reissue of her second and third albums is exquisitely done, not just from the aspect of the cover and booklet, but the remastering and sensitive choice of additional material. Ravishing!

    [I'm starting to make a dent in my non-classical traversal of my collection, but classical has a long way to go, yet ]
    Nice choice. The Marble Index and Desertshore are two of my favorite albums of all time.

    Taylor Swift's song "Shake It Off" but not in the way that you get it canned usually:

    "if a horse could sing in a monotone, the horse would sound like Carly Simon, only a horse wouldn't rhyme 'yacht', 'apricot', and 'gavotte'. Is that some kind of joke?"

    John Coltrane Anthology

    I've finally stopped listening to Coltrane as a saxophone player would do (or maybe couldn't do). It's been kind of painful. Now I'm just listening to it as music, and I'm actually finally enjoying it.

    More jazz here - one of Mingus' later releases. Companion album 'Changes Two' is in the post and eagerly anticipated.

    '...a violator of his word, a libertine over head and ears in debt and disgrace, a despiser of domestic ties, the companion of gamblers and demireps, a man who has just closed half a century without a single claim on the gratitude of his country or the respect of posterity...' - Leigh Hunt on the Prince Regent (later George IV).

    Hmmm. This is not unpleasant, actually. Well, actually it's quite pleasant late night listening, not memorable but sort of sub-ECM minimalist jazz / new age in style.

    I'm disappointed, I was expecting something much less palatable!

    A few weeks ago I heard this landmark compilation hip hop album on my iPod touch via Apple Lossless format.



    This is probably one of my favorite Rawkus compilations easily. The hit single 1-9-9-9 is one of the finest songs ever done with a very strong political angle.



    I recommend this album very much. It even includes one of my favorite Eminem tracks ever. The dark themes and humorous take on suicide still is one of the most jaw-dropping lyrics ever dispensed in the hip-hop industry.

    Here is the refrain:

    Cause any man who would jump in front of a minivan
    For twenty grand, a bottle of pain pills and a minithin
    Is f***** crazy -- you hear me? Ha?
    Is f***** crazy -- hello, hi!
    Cause any man who would jump in front of a minivan
    For twenty grand, a bottle of pain pills and a minithin
    Is f***** crazy -- do you hear me?
    Is f***** crazy

    I can see why Seamus Heaney called Eminem one of the finest poets ever.

    I know almost none of the music posted here, except for some jazz, and Tabor is another great finding to me. Her deep & rich voice is wonderful, and the unaccompanied singing is especially impressive. Thanks.

    Right now I'm listening to this lovely hip-hop album with Ghostface Killah. Wonderful live production that emulates sampled beats. And definitely so far better sounding than the latest Wu-Tang Clan effort.



    Heard on the iPod classic using Apple Lossless. I plan to get a digital version via iTunes at some point.

    I've been picking up Grant Green albums sporadically for a few decades. I recently got this one, and I'm really digging it! It's the first time I've listened to him in a trio format, and his guitar sound is superb backed by just the bass and drums. There are some excellent originals and a great rendition of Round Midnight.

    Im lisening to irfan wasted on some Grand Marnier, it goes well whit the music, i never had grand marnier before this stuff is sweet it taste like marmelade.The first Irfan(the bulgarian band) is hudge what a sound it blown me away monsalvato is epic in the true sense. all the album is fabuleous, no doupt, one heck of a gem.

    Than tonight i might lisen to some classic like hildegard of Bingen ''marriage entre le ciel et la terre'' this is quite a nice one on jade record.

    What is my point here , because i find something similar in irfan ,if i compared Hildegarde music modern rendition
