    I know the DVD thread gets plenty of posts, but I've been getting alot of new music CD's lately. Yes, Mp3 downloads are on the rise, but there's nothing like a physical item in your hands to stir up a new thread about collecting ... stuff.

    Anyway, here we go.

    Added:

    Gravity won't get you high by The Grates
    Magic Potion by The Black Keys

    Both are recommended, if it's your kind of music.

    Erm... are we supposed to post a list of what we have to begin with, and then add to it? That could take me some time... :p

    I figured that, but if you want to do a complete list, then go for it. I'd be interested to see what's on them ;)

    I'll also throw in a few questions for the fun of it. Such as ... what was your first CD/album?

    Yell Fire was probably the last album I purchased, though I bought it off iTunes and I didn't buy every track. CDs are just so passe nowadays. :p

    For the sake of not crashing the server, let's not for you. :p I just don't own many CDs, and very few that I'd admit to in public.

    Hehe...god I feel insignificant. I don't even have a Star Wars album...but I did download a remix of TPM!! I never had to buy CDs simply because my sister had like a million cds so i'd just borrow them off her.

    Shee-zus, I have over a thousand audio CDs in dozens of genres. The benefit of working for HMV when I was at Uni was a broad exposure to music, and a 25, later 30% staff discount.

    The last five I bought should give you an idea for my tastes; Thrice, "The Illusion of Safety"; Bohren und der Club of Gore, "Sunset Mission" - German metal/doom band doing film noir jazz, one for you Dan; a replacement copy of DJ Shadow's "Entroducing"; Opeth, "Ghost Reveries" and Aphex Twin's "Ambient Works Vol II".

    I think I also got a Boards of Canada CD before that, and bought-but-gave-away the new Jurassic 5 album as it's complete arse.

    The first CD I got was Metallica's "Metallica" in 1991, in the tall boxes you used to get in the US.

    Wow, very interesting. While they aren't saying anything particularly new from the previews I listened to, the simple fact that they are working in such a forgotten genre is very encouraging. Thanks for the tip!

    Wow, someone else has the Josie and Pussycats soundtrack! [face_dancing]


    And as for typing up my entire list, that'd take me all day and I didn't call in sick so I could tell you all about my musical taste


    I will however, tell you that my first ever musical purchase was the record of the Trevlling Wilburys first album. Pure Gold. [face_love]


    The last few albums I've purchased were Show Your Bones by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Presets and Lily Allen. Before that, it was Matisyahu, Peeping Tom (bloody brilliant that one) and a heap of daggy 80's 45s :p

    Next on my list of purchases is the newish Muse album, TZU's latest and if I can find it, Sounds Like Chicken.

    Long story short; in Taiwan, my friend Greg (A canadian) played in a band called the Retrosexuals, a funky-jazzy outfit that included Corbett someone-or-other who was like the biggest Jazz saxophonist in Taiwan in the 80's (and later moved to NY). Corbett has a blog here, where you can see his band (Greg is the guy in the blue Sgt Peppers getup). It was through Greg, who has a BA in Jazz (hence teaching English in Taiwan), that I got into live Jazz. Eventually, I come across Bohren's noir soundtrack.

    The long story is much longer and more convoluted.

    BA in Jazz = teaching English in Taiwan. That makes total sense. :p

    Very cool, though.

    Going CD shopping tomorrow, but there's too much to choose from. I want Muse, YYY's and the Presets, but there's so many others...

    Also, anyone heard the Scissor Sisters new album? Strangely addictive, I must admit.
