    Default Help with my music-buying spree

    I now have a $100 walmart gift card and $75 Circuit City gift card to blow (:D), and most of it (if not all of it) is going toward music. I can't think of anything but music that I'd want from Wal Mart, though I might decide on Logitech's wireless laser mouse from CC...idk.

    Anyhoo, over the past two years (though not much here recently) I've been adding to a list of songs I hear on the radio that I liked and then looked up online (to find the name/artist). So, I'm just going through that list (only 237 songs ;)) and figuring out what CDs I want based on that. I'll buy it from Wal Mart unless they've edited it (they list at the bottom of the page whether they've edited it).

    So I guess what I want to know is, do the CDs I've listed (and in no way is this yet a comprehensive list) offer a good selection of that artist's work, or is there another one of their CDs I'd be better off buying. I'd appreciate any input y'all could offer.

    Michelle Branch - Spirit Room
    Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons Anthology
    The Animals - Retrospective
    New!
    Ultimate Air Supply
    Gold: Buddy Holly
    Matchbox 20 - Yourself Or Someone Like You
    The Essential Journey
    Fleetwood Mac: Greatest Hits

    Not such a short list now, eh? ;) I want to add to that something from:
    Elton John
    Rod Stewart
    Sting/The Police
    Train
    Maybe something 'mild' from Van Halen or Pink Floyd, too.

    Thanks for all your advice!

    I have both of Michelle branch's cd's and I liked the spirit room a lot more than her new album "hotel paper" -second cd is a lot more upbeat and lively. Other one is a lil more laid back.

    Thanks for your opinion, Schriss22. I was kind of wondering which to get. I'm definitely decided on Spirit Room now.

    Keep those thoughts coming!!! (or get 'em coming or something...)

    Yourself or someone like you is a good CD by Matchbox 20 IMO. And, I would grab one of Elton's greatest hits CDs or his new 2CD set.

    I just listened to the clips WalMart has of the songs on Yourself or Someone Like You, and there's only one song on there I don't like. So, I guess I'll go with that album. Though, I do like Mad Season, too. Maybe I'll just save that one for later.

    Since you put Journey into the mix, I wholeheartededly recommend the new "Live in Houston 1981" CD + DVD set. This was Journey at their peak, on the Escape tour, and Perry is in fine form. It's also a bargain at ~$15 or so.

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...v=glance&n=130

    I saw it at one of the local Wal-Marts a few weeks ago...

    Thanks a bunch to both of your for your recommendations. I'm beginning to see that my $100 isn't going to go real far. I'm not going to be able to get everything I want with this card, but everything so far has definitely been added to my short list for whenever I do get more funds. I'm going to listen to samples of all the songs from the last four CD's recommended tomorrow, so I'll have a verdict then, I think.

    I really needed some guidance with Journey as I'm not real familiar with their work, and same with Sting. I also don't know a lot about Train, but they have three or four songs I've heard I like.

    Thanks and keep it coming!!

    For Journey I've decided on The Essential Journey; lots of great songs. I'm just not real big on music DVDs. However, I also really like Arrival, and none of those songs are one the former CD. Did Arrival come out after The Essential Journey? I'm going to have to get Arrival at a later date, for sure.

    Seeing as how I'm pretty much totally clueless when it comes to Fleetwood Mac, I decided to just go with the Greatest Hits album for familiarization, if for nothing else. However, I did listen to some of the Time album and liked that pretty good, too.

    Looks like I'm going to have to blaze the Train trail by myself!

    arguably John Williams' greatest musical score and perhaps one of the best cinema soundtracks of all time.

    Although it's a re-release, it's gotten very lukewarm reviews all over the net. 20bit HDCD.

    Well, I am not a big Train fan myself but, my mom is. The newest cd, My Private Nation didn't seem to very good to me. Drops of Jupiter (The CD) is ok, I have heard all of it. I'm not sure about the first CD, we do not own that one.

    What a fine example of why not to home-school your children. They cant figure out a damn thing for themselves. Its bad enough we had threads on arithmatic, but now music? Sheesh. Self decision and work - it wouldn't kill ya kid.

    So what music is it that you would like to expand on? Amazon and Tower Records typically have samples for you to listen to - why not try there? Because, and only because, I have faith that you may be able to appreciate good talent and good music beyond rock and roll - I will make some suggestions;

    Alex De Grassi - a great folk artist. Stellar guitar work
    Michael Hedges - Great musicianship, particulary "Aerial Boundaries"
    Jason McGuire - An American guitarist that is phenominal with Flamenco
    Jennifer Daniels - great country artist. Sid turned me onto her.
    Anna Netrebko - Russian opera singer - great voice.
    Evgeny Kissin - Remarkable!!!! piano player. My personal fav.

    In fact, to hell with it, why not start with the classics of jazz?

    Joe Henderson, Paul Desmond, Stan Getz, Ella Fitzgerald, Eartha Kitt, Bill Evans, Dinah Washington, Yma Sumac.

    Or - you could go Euro and try some electronica. Dj Tiesto , ATB, BT, Chicane, Sash! - are all good starters.

    The list is endless - theres a few bones to chew on. Now - go fetch.

    Well, gee thanks for throwing off on my education; I really appreciate that. And I'll make sure not to mention anything math related from here on out.

    I probably could listen to samples of tracks on a website to determine whether I want a CD or not. Oh, wait - I'm already doing that. And if I haven't yet explicitly said so in this thread, I have alluded to it strongly enough that you should have no problem figuring it out. Walmart.com and then Barnesandnoble.com when WalMart doesn't have all the tracks available.

    What is it I would like to expand on? Well, let's see...how about the list I provided? Yeah, there's one of those in my original post. I've already stated that my list of possibilities came from a spreadsheet (I'll go ahead and say that's the first time I used the word 'spreadsheet' in this thread; but the idea's the same...'list') to which I've been adding songs I've heard on the radio and liked. So, I have a lead somewhat, but in most cases I don't know a thing about the group/artist. That's where y'all come in.

    I'm sure I could just go out and buy all the CDs by every group I've ever heard...but I haven't won a lottery yet this year and I already spent all the money I got from the one I won last year. And as I'm sure you'll point out, I could listen to the samples on the web to find out which CDs I would probably like, but I don't just want a CD I like. That's a given. I also want a CD that offers a good representation of the artist and all his work/styles, the highlights of his career (yeah, I'm not being PC either), and/or his (still not) lesser known masterpieces.

    So you see, at least from my point of view, it's not totally out of line for me to ask for advice on music. Sure, everyone likes their own kind of music, but I'm not asking y'all what I like. I'm asking for recommendations for good CDs from groups I *think* I like.

    As best as I can tell, none of the folks you listed are in my list. However, I thank you for the heads up on them, as I'm sure I never would have heard any of those names for the rest of my life if you hadn't pointed them out to me. But I'm sure they are great artists, and I will (seriously) take note of them to look at later on.

    Oh, and I don't like jazz.




    And don't read this post as hateful-like as it probably sounds.

    Michael,

    I like you, kiddo – but put on your flame suit.

    There is no ‘throwing off’ going on here. In fact, I am encouraging you to pursue true education. This is stuff you will not read in one of your text-books. Lately, most posts I see from you are either short blurbs of “yeah, that’s cool” or questions in relation to school work and things not related to audio. Alright, I confess – I lied. This is not just a ‘lately’ thing.

    The bottom line; Stop asking for your hands to be held and finally start doing some research and work on your own. Is there anything wrong with seeking recommendations on artists? Nope. Not at all. If you weren’t consistently asking for assistance in every other thread headed by your name – I wouldn’t think a thing of it. But that begs the question; why give a **** about what I think? That of course, is up for you to decide. This is just some food for thought through direct tact.

    As mentioned; Amazon and even Tower Records are better ways to sample music. Amazon often shows you similar artists with similar styles after a search is performed or a piece of music selected.

    But why stop there? Take it a step further. Find a style you enjoy, punch in the artists name at www.pandora.com

    You get to hear full songs, with album covers pictured for your convenience. It will stream through your artist of choice and similar artists – both known and unknown. If you *really* enjoy it – you are hot linked to a place to buy the CD from.

    But we all don’t have endless streams of cash for media. So why not get a file sharing program like Lime Wire, go download crazy – organize it all…and when you do have the cash, support the musician and get their CD’s. Maybe you will get a wild hair and go for something you haven’t heard from that artist. That’s been my approach, and I’ve been greatly rewarded each time!

    In closure – Yep, I am being hard on you. Its nothing personal – and I am sure that in time you will remember this and realize ‘why’. In the mean time, try amazon – Pandora, and discover new music. There are far too many sources today to be pondering around message boards for suggestions.

    Good luck.

    "Best of Both Worlds" from Van Halen is a great 2 CD compilation that blows the previous "Greatest Hits, Vol. 1" into the weeds. Get it....you won't be sorry. Just make sure you've brush up on your air guitar skills.

    For Sting/The Police, there's a 1 disc "Best of" compilation available. But I'd recommend getting separate "Best of" for Sting and The Police, respectively, since their style is quite different.

    You may also consider the hybrid SACD of The Animals' Retrospective. It's packaged in a cardboard digipak and should be the same price as the recent CD only reissue (packaged in a regular CD jewel case). You never know when this SACD thing may take off....hahaha :D

    Ultimate Air Supply is also quite good. Easily the best sounding Air Supply compilation out there....short of the SACD.

    Hey...Just a question for you, but why is the majority of your list artists that are rather old (in terms of their releases, and age :p)? I've got a CD collection chok full of a lot of the things that are in your list, but there's so much stuff out there that would be worthy of a purchase over this, or at the very least some research.

    All of the music you've listed is very accessible, in other words....all you need to do is turn on your classic rock station or contemporary adult station and you have all this music right there.

    I know someone is just going to say that you have a great taste in music. I would agree, but I also don't think that this is the best stuff ever made and that today's music isn't worth listening to. That's a rather close minded response. There's a lot out there that would make some of the artists posted in this thread look as shallow and soul-less as they are.

    So...think about doing some research into new stuff and find out what you like. Unlike the artists of old we have the internet now and you can often listen to an artists entire collection (that they provide!) before you ever spend the money on the CDs. It's a little more personal experience and you can actually see most of these bands at the top of their game. Then again I like live music, you may not, but at least you have the option. You're not going to see the bulk of the bands you listed at the top of their games.

    Do some research, websites like this would be a decent start.

    Personally...I don't like people telling me what to go out and buy or not buy, contrary to how you might see this thread. ;) I'm just suggesting you to expand your horizions into the unknown, it's more fun that way. Good luck.

    Zero - Point(s) taken.

    Danny - I'll listen to some samples of that Van Halen album. I'm afraid I won't like it as it's not quite my style, but I thought I'd give 'em a try. I'll also listen through some Sting/The Police stuff.

    Demiurge - Thanks for the link. I'll definitely start checking out some 'new' folks, as the few times I've done so I've been really surprised (the good kind, too :p).

    Yeah, you have a good list, I just don't want you to start believing that what's 'new' out there doesn't measure up. It seems to be a product of growing old where you get stalemated into believing that to be true. I think with music it's always good to have a real open mind as it's all about the emotion. You need not let logic and all that stuff muddy what you're feeling when it comes to music. It's nearly a complete polar opposite to how I view other stuff. There was lots of crap out there back then and there is lots of crap now, same for the other side of the coin...lots of good!

    Enjoy it!

    Being as I'm 18, I would think liking the older stuff is being more 'open-minded'. I think my overall plan is to acquire a decent collection of the 'old' artists I know and love, and then venture into the world of 'new music'. However, I'll start researching the newer stuff now.

    You're spot on, everyone takes something different from music, which is why it's no use lambasting someone on taste or telling someone what they should do. That's crap. I'm just trying to make some suggestions, and I'm glad you're going to check out that site. :) Like I said, I think most of the stuff on your list is great, but if you dig deeper...there's lots of stuff out there that's great that you didn't know was there. It's the same reason I wouldn't say hey...go buy a Nickelback CD or a KoRn CD, etc...that's all the mainstream stuff that's powered by the major record labels who throw the advertising dollars around more than an artist who is on an independent label. You might ask why go independent with your music? Depends on what you want. One of the bands I have been real close to over the years has had a number of albums rejected by their label (Geffen/Interscope) because they said it wouldn't sell. In my opinion I want quality music that's representative of the art that the musician is making, their interpretation...not what's going to generate the most money. I respect the bands who want to rake in the money, that's their choice and it's a natural desire.

    The music world is so interesting and the business aspect of it is just as interesting. I tend to support the small time artist, but that's not to say that the big time ones aren't making good music. :)

    You can't do anything wrong with choosing the music you like, that's what's so great about it! So I hope you're not getting that impression.

    *edit*

    Add this album:

    Beach Boys - Pet Sounds

    At the very least check it out. One of the best albums ever made. Bob Dylan's Blood on the Tracks would be good too.

    Michael I like the way you think! I think it is commendable that you don't just ignore the older generations worth of music just because you're younger. Hell if you want, check out some of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin & Tony Bennett.

    They all had a way with lyrics & had excellent orchestrations to go with them!
