    Holy shit, where to begin?





    Alan Parsons Project - Produced multiple Pink Floyd albums at Abbey Roads I think, his solo shit is groovy as a motherfucker too.

    Allan Holdsworth - Sweet sweet jazz fusion and wankery.

    Black Flag - Because punk is not metal.

    Bound Together - Actually an album title, not a group. But essentially it's a collective effort to remix old tunes from the SNES game Earthbound, and most of it really kicks ass.

    Cannonball Adderley - Pretty straight forward swing jazz, worked with Miles Davis.

    Captain Beefheart - I can't really explain it with words.

    Desert Sessions - Bunch of rockers go into the desert for a weekend, eat mushrooms and hit record.

    Frank Zappa - Probably my favorite music ever. Covers too many bases to describe briefly.

    Gustav Holst - Modern classical composer, famous for his Planets Suite.

    Igor Stravinsky - Modern classical composer, famous for The Rite of Spring, The Nightingale, The Firebird, etc.

    Jean-Luc Ponty - Virtuoso violinist, revolutionized the instrument by popularizing the 5 and 6 string electric violins stacked with FX. Collab'd with many artists/groups such as Mahavishnu Orchestra/John McLaughlin and Frank Zappa.

    King Crimson - Good ol' british prog rock.

    Mahavishnu Orchestra - Really technical prog/jazz. Not a big fan of the later stuff, but shit like Birds of Fire is so sweet.

    Miles Davis - Needs no introduction.

    Mr. Bungle - Two words: Patton, and Zorn.

    Naked City - One word: Zorn.

    Nobuo Uematsu - Famous for his work with the Final Fantasy series, as well as the Black Mages (But they're metal, so they don't fucking count).

    Porcupine Tree - Really relaxing prog rock from britain, but lately they've been way too depressy-sounding for my liking lyric-wise. Music is phenomenal.

    Rush - Fuck you if you don't already listen to Rush.

    Steve Reich - Now here's an interesting one. Minimalist modern classical composer, focuses on moods/atmospheres with little chord changes.

    Sunn O))) - One of my faves, drooooooooooooooooooooone.

    Sympozion - One of my favorite new bands coming from Isreal, shame the composer killed himself at the beginning of the year. Upbeat yiddish prog/jazz, some of the nicest compositions I've heard in my life.

    Venetian Snares - Shit's awesome when you're stoned.








    That's it for now I guess. If you have any questions about any of these bands just ask.

    1 - Maybeshewill / Mogwai / Jakob
    2 - Try Oracle. Brillant and quite accessible album.
    3 - Even if you're not a canuck, you HAVE to listen to Rush.

    They did the Soundtrack to Bladrunner.
    Pretty cool soft-synth stuff. Tangerine Dream does some shit like that. The problem with them is its really hit-and-miss. Their albums are either brilliant or fucking terrible, and there are so many that I can never remember which are which.

    So for them, some known good ones I like aaaare.
    Soundtrack to Legend, Tangram, Great Wall of China. I'll let Nerve finish the list.

    Lustmord...only with a gay line through the "o", is some Dark Ambient, for whoeverthefuck it was who asked.

    True. They had very good albums as shitty ones. I personnally like Zeit, Stratosfear, Cyclone, Atem, Rubycon. But Klaus Schulze's solo albums are really awesome (Kontinuum, Moondawn, Dreams).

    I really like these. Fair to Midland. Alt Rock kind of stuff.
    Album is really cool, this song and "Walls of Jericho" are absolutely awesome.
