Electric Honey by Luscious Jackson

Year: 1999
Genre(s): Indie Rock, Pop
Tracks: 15
Lenght: 50:01
Description: While probably not the best Luscious Jackson album, it's my personal favorite. Their final album released (released as a trio instead of a quartet since one member had left since the previous album), it's an interesting sounding album-- While it sounds a lot like a pop album at first, it has a lot of subtle hip-hop elements: record scratching, distortion, and the drums sound like someone laid a beat down for a rap song-- which makes a lot of sense, since the drummer was also the drummer of the Beastie Boys.
Honestly, I grew up with this album. It's one of my mother's favorites, so when we went on long road trips as a kid, this album would inevitably come up. As such, a lot of the tracks probably evoke much stronger feelings than they will you. While it still stands the test of time (and taste), it's certainly not nearly as good as my brain tells me it is.
Recommended tracks:
Fantastic Fabulous
Lover's Moon
These are all pretty low quality, but they're the ONLY versions on youtube.
Look what I found, though!
edit: I figured I'd throw in their one big single for good measure

Staind - Break the Cycle

Genre(s): Metal
Tracks: 13
Length: 50:00
Description: 13 solid tracks, all conveying depression. The emotion in this guy's vocals for this album is almost up there with Metallica's on Unforgiven I & II, but the lyrics are a bit too simple for my taste.

Recommended tracks:

your first kiss was not with Halil, but with me, Nico!!!!

Album Title: From A Basement On The Hill
Artist: Elliott Smith
Released: 2004
Description: From A Basement On The Hill is Elliot Smith's 6th Studio album, released posthumously (after his death). It was still incomplete at the time of his death, so the label hired his former producer and his ex girlfriend to go through the 30 or so songs that were meant for the album. Smith wanted this album to be a double CD album but the contract with the label restricted him from doing so, so this album only has 15 songs.

Track Listing:
1. "Coast to Coast" – 5:33
2. "Let's Get Lost" – 2:27
3. "Pretty (Ugly Before)" – 4:45
4. "Don't Go Down" – 4:34
5. "Strung Out Again" – 3:12
6. "A Fond Farewell" – 3:58
7. "King's Crossing" – 4:57
8. "Ostriches & Chirping" – 0:33
9. "Twilight" – 4:29
10. "A Passing Feeling" – 3:32
11. "The Last Hour" – 3:27
12. "Shooting Star" – 6:01
13. "Memory Lane" – 2:30
14. "Little One" – 3:14
15. "A Distorted Reality Is Now a Necessity to Be Free" – 4:32

Recommended Tracks: (My opinion)
- Coast To Coast
- A Fond Farewell
- King's Crossing
- Twilight
- Shooting Star
- Memory Lane
- A Distorted Reality Is Now a Necessity to Be Free

Okay to the person above lol.

It's about the queen of Kpop, Hyori Lee! She's back after two years from music and returns to the korean music scene with her hip-hop-ish songs with a mix of techno and sizzling beats lmfao. She collaborated with many other k-pop artists liek Daesung and Beckah from After School and some songs that were amazing from this album is Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and I'm Back!

Check it out ! ^^

Year:2009.Description: "I felt very curious and intrigued about the electro-pop world and everything it has to offer, I wanted to make sure that this album was very bassy and that the kicks hit really hard, and I wanted to concentrate on the beat. But my music, to a certain extent, is very complex -- because I always try to experiment with sounds from other parts of the world."-Quote by Shakira
-Some of them are there more than one time.In english and ... colombian i think.
She Wolf has 2 versions. "Live" one and normal one.
I reccomend:
-She Wolf( all versions) (Loba)
-Did it Again( all versions) (Lo Hecho Esta Hecho)
-Long Time
-Why WAit !!! ( Anos Luz)
-Good Stuff
-Men in this Town
-Mon Amour
-Give it Up to Me
-Gypsy i guess.It's not that good o.o
Other Info :
- I know that Give it Up to me and Gypsy were included in Ugly Betty S04E08.
- Loba or She Wolf reached top-ten worldwide.
- "Gypsy" and "Gitana" were sent to radio stations around the world on February 22, 2010 and the song's video features tennis star Rafael Nadal. (22.02 was my Birthday o.o )
- The album was re-released in Spanish-speaking territories to feature "Gitana" and several remixes.

The Tiger and the Duke by The Sound of Animals Fighting
Genre: Experimental rock
Length: 34:08 (Original version)
71:29 (Re-issue)
Summary: This is badass. It's like 15 dudes from bands that I dislike (Circa Survive, RX Bandits, some more) coming together to make the raddest music ever. The original version only has four real songs (Acts) and a few interludes. The interludes are a little wanky. but the Acts are some of the best and most original songs I've ever had the pleasure of listening to. I haven't yet listened to the re-issue, but I will soon, and I may post a review, but this is the definitive one for this badass CD.

Recommended tracks:
Act II: All is Ash (Or the Light Shining Through It.

Catherine Wheel - Ferment

Genres (secondary genres): Shoegaze / Alternative Rock (Dream Pop / Brit Pop)
Blurb: Best album of all time and I'm not even kidding; the only other album that could take its throne as my favourite album ever is Souvlaki. It's just one mind-blowing song after the other, I doubt you will ever find a more perfect pack of songs.

Listen to: Black Metallic / Ferment / Tumbledown + Bill and Ben / Salt

Thread has been mostly cleaned.
I haven't posted an album in a while, so here we go:

The Dresden Dolls by The Dresden Dolls
Year: 2003
Tracks: 12
Genre: "dark cabaret," but it's basically just piano-driven punk
Time: 56 minutes
Description: Yes, it's music for fat gothic girls, but Amanda Palmer has this unique air around her. Sure, she sings about being a woman and her relationships with men, but as opposed to a lot of "angry chick rock," she feels... vulnerable. Her songs make her come across as sad, lonely, and emotionally unstable, but still trying to be an independent woman, and in doing so I can visualize a character throughout the songs that is a *real* person, and not just a single emotion per song.
In terms of music, the band is just piano + percussion, but the piano tends to be fairly aggressive, with a loud/soft dynamic in many songs (with major help from the percussion), though there are plenty of songs that are fairly soft, but they never get outside of sounding like punk (also sure is run-on sentence in here). Plenty of the songs are catchy, but in general it's the lyrics that make the songs.

As a side note, they're supposed to be an absolute spectacle live and I'm regretting turning down a chance I had to see them (as I'd never heard them at that point).

Recommended Tracks:
Coin-Operated Boy
Girl Anachronism
Good Day

I'll be downloading Ferment right now.

The Church - Priest = Aura

Year: 1992
Tracks: 14
Time: 64:55
Genres (secondary genres): Art Rock (Neo-Psychedelia / Shoegaze)
Pseudo-Review: Very few albums sound as effortlesly beautiful as this one, and I assure you that it will make you doubt if everything you've heard before is as good as you thought. Recommended, especially, for fans of The Cure's Disintegration.
