    Now, I've heard things about Cressida from a past thread here, and I'm wondering what albums you would suggest.

    well, they only have 2.

    both are amazing...but id recommend starting with their first...the "self titled". its a bit more accesible and more pleasing of a listen overall.

    their second album "asylum" is more creative and "progressive" id say, but not as pleasing on initial listens.

    realizing i'll probably be bludgeoned to death with turntables for saying it, i can't believe nobody's mentioned the mars volta--undeniable prog elements there...de-loused in the comatorium is incredibly good, a truly remarkable concept album and one of my favorites of all time.

    they have several non film related works.

    one album before they actually became "goblin" called "cherry five" which is a lot like mid era Yes, and is very good. then they had several albums later on under the name goblin which werent film related, also quite good.

    i know weve mentioned them before in this thread or maybe another thread at least once or twice. you are correct though, a very pleasant progressive tinged suprise from that band, i enjoyed the album a lot...and hope they continue being just as creative in the future.

    The theme to zombie is awesome.

    Also I support who ever said the mars volta are good, there live shows must be great.

    I brought ambrosia's first album, the other day, I heard nice nice very nice and thought it was cool, but the rest of the album is ok, it sounds like a boyband in some places.

    i understand your concern...for i heard the same things previous, as well as finding out it is comprised of members of "at the drive in" an indie rock/emo band apparently....however image the dark elements of king crimson, the spaciness of pink floyd, and some of the blues energetic guitar chops of steve howe of Yes...with an overall modern touch and a vocalist on par with the best of his generation...and you have the mars volta.

    yes, i stated basically that a few posts back....cherry five was essentially goblin before they changed their name.

    dario argento was looking for a band to make the soundtrack to his latest film (soon to become a legendary masterpiece of his art, along with the help of goblins highest selling soundtrack and still considered their best work), when his wife Daria Nicolodi (who starred in many of his and similar films) recommended them to him...and he loved them obviously, and a bond was made which would become a kindred unity of director and musical artist much like alfred hitchcock and bernard herrmann, or sergio leone and ennio morricone.

    in any case, they made some great eerie music...very doomy sometimes, and just stimulating in an overall darkened sense. i recommend it to anyone into metal, or rock of any kind.

    i didnt see it, however im a big fan of the original dawn of the dead, so a parody of it seemed humorous and interesting to me. im sure ill check it out when it comes out on video.
