What is an "album"?

My collection is all digital these days. Approximately 90,000 tracks. (Many nights of ripping CDs)

But my portable collection is made up of :
Pearl Jam
Foo Fighters
The Beatles
Depeche Mode
Faith No More
Weezer

An album is a collection like a photo album, record album. It doesn't have to be a plastic, black , grooved plate with music on it. I bought the plastic black grooved plate of The Moody Blues, Days of Future Passed, in 1969 and it still keeps my interest today.

I was wondering if there was a different music store that everyone knew about but me! Most of my friends have never heard of the bands I listen to, but I haven't ever heard of most of the groups ya'll are naming...just goes to show you how vast the music universe is.

RinkRat, you are closer to me than the others, but I think I am still way out there. I have been collecting CDs on secondspin recently, so a bunch of new stuff on the MP3:

All Time Low - Nothing Personal
Theory of A Deadman - Scars & Souvenirs
Hinder - Extreme Behavior
Saving Abel

...and finally, my go to when I just need a pick me up....(I think I might get kicked off DW for even admitting it)...

Nickelback - Dark Horse

Listening to Daniel Adair was one of the key things that led to my desire to play drums.

Always the Favorite

Nirvana's In Utero

Really enjoying the new Dillinger Escape Plan album...

Also, recently discovered 'Nik Bartsch's Ronin' and am loving it! Very mellow jazz with some very interesting percussion sounds and great playing too.

I've said it before, but I'm still stuck on this album: 21 Spices, Trilok Gurtu/Simon Phillips and the NDR Bigband . That has got so many layers of stuff to listen to and dissect...

I have been collecting all the works of Elvin Jones, and now I am listening to Ole' by John Coltrane. The song Ole's is really good, it has two Upright bass players on there. Really worth listening to if you have not heard it yet.

I do like the Police - I'm a little young for the group, but Sting was one of the first concerts I ever went to. It was great, but I almost failed my chemistry exam the next day...worth it.

Nickelbacklash - noun. An antagonistic reaction to a musical ensemble, due to popularity, radio kill, or general dislike. Usually occurs when one actually enjoys a band, but refuses to admit it so as not to incur disgust from peers. Also involves singing along when all the doors are closed and the windows are up.

It seems like I'm on a trend, though - the Canadians have taken over my playlists...NB, Theory of a Deadman, My Darkest Days...

No, no Creed...but I do have a Daughtry CD. Heard somewhere that Chris Daughtry is the "B-----" love child of Chad Kroeger and Scott Stapp.

OK...so it's back to "Abbey Road " for me again.I just listened to the Fab Faux cover of most of the B side of the album,(which is just phenominal) but I needed to hear the original.

Just a master piece of music.

Iv posted in this before but well I feel it we kinda nice to update every once in a while. Im still stuck on karnivool and bosnian rainbows pretty hard which was most of my last post on here. But recently Iv been listening to
Death cab for cutie- the photo album (one of my all time favorite bands, great live as well)
city and colour-little hell (the album which has some really good stuff)
misery signals- Absent light, or at least I think that's what its called. Its pretty good but I'm not as hooked on it as I expected.

I'd not heard of Trilok Gurtu before and just listened to this after listening to a track from makinao's album of the moment with him on drums. Very pleased with this find!

I'm decompressing from listening almost exclusively to the Rocky Horror Show 2001 Cast Recording for the last two months by finally getting into the "Octane Twisted" live CD by Porcupine Tree. In a rare show of self-discipline, I held off listening to it until after the show for just this purpose. It's brilliant. Gavin, if you chance to read this -- well done.

I don't know why, but I have been on a Springsteen kick lately. I haven't listened to him in years (decades perhaps), but I used to really be into his music. I have been alternating between "The Wild, The Innocent, and The E Street Shuffle" and "Darkness on the Edge of Town". I even found my old "Born in the USA", "Nebraska" and "Greetings From Asbury Park, NJ" cassettes from my grade school days. I may see if they are still alive this evening.
