    So I may be living in the 90's, but I've taken a liking to Dave Matthews lately. Most of his stuff sounds just great on the SDA's, and it's very full-range and well composed music.

    Also, I've been listening to Muse quite a bit. Most probably haven't heard of them, as they're a British rock band. A lot of their stuff is harder.... I usually listen to it if I want something loud and powerful (typically on my way home from work in the car).
    Ludicrous gibs!

    I've had Absolution on repeat all day at work on several occasions. I'm very anxious to pick up some of their other stuff one of these days. Absolution is an utterly stunning disc that grows on you with time.

    now: Saul Stokes - Zo Pilots http://www.discogs.com/release/209230 - One of my all time favorite albums - it just hits me right every time I hear it. A very ambient electronic album - more on the beat side than drifty ambient. Analog - mostly recorded on modular synths he built. We've worked on a few smaller projects together over the years. Definitely worth checking out if you like ambient or synth music... http://www.saulstokes.com

    was: Radian - Juxtaposition http://www.discogs.com/release/316926 - bass, drums, synth/computer trio out of (I think) Vienna. They take feedback into very melodic atmospheric territory - grounded with the live bass and drums feel (as opposed to very drum machine/synthy...). Somewhat in Pan Sonic territory - at least when Pan Sonic is being more mellow.

    ...

    On earlier posts...

    Talking Heads - Stop Making Sense - wow - I played that cassette to death. A perfect concert.

    Madonna's Ray of Light - there are a few good tracks on that - especially the title track. Not one that I go seeking out to listen to, but I don't mind when my wife's in the mood for it. Her most recent one (well, I think it was the most recent one - the one where she goes back to disco fasions...) had some good moments as well. She usually manages to pull in a good producer to take her in slightly different directions.

    I love how Stop Making Sense always finds it way back into this thread:) One of the best albums of all time... unless I'm in the mood for Remain in the Light.

    I started off the night with just a whole lot of different genre's for backround music while my wife and I put up some wall hangings and cleaned out another room (well almost) of boxes.

    But then I settled down and did some real relaxing listening, incredibly great sounding recordings and performances with:

    Proprius- Arne Domnerus Group - "Good Vibes." This is part three (if you don't have the double disc set) of the Jazz at the Pawnshop recordings and they really cook and jam as well as showcase the 1.2 TL's abilities. This system tonight presented the stage as Gert Palmcrantz (recording engineer) describes it, "a tight small stage with five genius' crammed together." (paraphrased). Gert's recording and engineering of these live sessions are incredible and the rig tonight did this recording justice. AWESOME

    Next was:

    Johnny Cash - "16 biggest Hits" Almost all the songs seemed to have been taken from different recording sessions and a couple are live. I gotta tell you the 1.2 TLs were presenting a different soundstage on each song but the imaging was pinpoint and very wide on some tracks. Three were out to the side walls which are over 5' from each speaker. Johnny Cash was just an awesome artist and this disc showcases alllllllllllllllllllllllllll his talents.

    I'm lovin' it.

    Charlotte Martin-Live at Jammin Java-Vienna,VA(11-5-05). One of my new discoveries. She has a few cd's out independent. Very much in the vein of a Fiona Apple or Tori Amos or Jewel. She plays piano and has a very lovely voice. Not like the pop music of say a Vanessa Carlton. Live Music Org. allows live recordings (with artist permission) to be uploaded and then dl's by fans. Most are offered in both FLAC and mp3 format. I've dl'd a few of her more interesting and well recorded shows (in FLAC of course). This is one of them. Excellent amatuer recording of a fantastic show.

    I'm always searching thru this very large archive website and dl'ing stuff that sounds interesting. It's really hit or miss.......more miss actually. I had heard of Charlotte before I discovered the site and had 2 of her cd's already. The live performances are really good.

    for those who might be curious

    Add - Kate Bush and Sarah McLachlan as influences too.

    This is one occaison where the CD remaster is better than the 180gm vinyl reissue.

    Son Seals - Bad Axe
    1984, Alligator - AL 4738, LP

    IMO, one of his finest efforts. "Friday Again" is the quintessential Chicago, electric blues groove.

    "He has total command of the instrument, and the result is awsome... ferocious attack, vicious, searing guitar and passionate singing."

    Miles Davis - In Person Friday and Saturday Nights at the Blackhawk, San Francisco

    It doesn't get any more analogous to real than this. Spectacular sound quality and synergy with my PS Audio/Revel system (this is the first time I've had the reel-to-reel in this setup.) I'm at a center stage table in the club right here on my couch.

    THANK YOU to Dave James for this aural delicacy!

    10 cc - Live And Let Live
    1977, Mercury SRM-2-8600, (2)LP

    So, you can go out on the street and take your chances
    But if you do, you better do it right
    Or you won't feel the benefit, won't feel the benefit
    Spin the wheel and take your chances
    And your number might come up
    Though the odds may be in favor of the house

    If all the people in the world would say together
    We're all black and white, we're all day and night
    If all the people in the world could sing together
    How would it sound, what would we feel

    We'd all feel the benefit
