So, music are you listening to at the moment?

I've been heavily into Antony & The Johnsons since May this year, and regularly listen to a mix of Einstürzende Neubauten, Rufus Wainwright, Bright Eyes, and Nick Cave.

Am I the only one on the forum with 'uncool' tastes in music then? Last album I bought was by Charlotte Church, before that Kylie and Girls Aloud.

Let's think about my uncool MP3 player with the following albums on it:

Trouble by Akon
Something like this: the Bob Newhart collection discs 1&2
The first of a million kisses by Fairground Attraction
Queen on fire at the bowl (2 discs)
Shania Twain greatest hits
In the mood for ska (various artists)

Think that takes your uncool and raises it to sad.

If I was ever marooned on a desert island and only one 'album' survived, that would be the one, excellent choice KF :)

Thanks. I would put it on the mp3 player but, as I have that on random play, think it wouldn't work so well.

Full CDs:

Panopticon by Isis - Mostly instrumental wall-of-distortion type metal stuff. Pretty cool. Homepage with MP3s is HERE.

Takk by Sigur Ros - Wahooooo for new Sigur Ros! But () is way better. You can find plenty o' sample tracks and rarities HERE.

The Great Destroyer by Low - Low is one of my favorites. Slowcore. Minimalist and quiet typically, with some of the most gorgeous vocals you'll ever hear. This release is a little more rock oriented than older ones. Homepage is HERE.

Miss Machine by Dillinger Escape Plan - Super technical and SUPER heavy. A really great metal record all-around. Their HOMEPAGE features all sorts of info and some sample tracks.

You And Me by Open Hand - One part hard rock + one part pop + one part stoner metal = Awesome record. Homepage with MP3 samples and such is HERE.

I should stop before this turns into a full laundry list.

I haven't had time to listen to music for weeks! No fair! I need something better than my tiny little MP3 player which only has 16 mb on it. Lately I've been downloading music off itunes because I often find I don't like all the songs on an album, so why buy the whole thing?

Some recent downloads would include various songs from:
The Beach Boys
Bruce Springsteen
Depech Mode
Bon Jovi
Green Day
...

Full albums? Lots, but some I listen to regularly...
All but one of the U2 albums (one I haven't got yet)
Cheryl Crow
Jack Johnson
Einaudi (classical pianist/composer)
6 Feet Under soundtrack
Buena Vista Social Club
Coldplay

Nothing truly cool I'm afraid, although I get that in the labs with the lab tech's Led Zeppelin, Pearl Jam, etc.

I hereby call on the moderators to permanently ban Nickydude from the forum.

Crazy Frog?

We don't need that sort of thing here, do we?

Well, I could go retro uncool and get out my copies of "Ernie: the fastest milkman in the west" by Benny Hill or perhaps the England 1970 World Cup Squad with "Back Home". Of course these were both huge number ones. Then again there are a few Status Quo albums too for uncoolness.

I've got a friend who once bought Aqua's Barbie Girl. I don't think I stopped laughing about it for a week afterwards.

Funnily enough, whenever I mention that when other people are around (which is often), he has a complete memory loss and denies he ever purchased it.
