Not so much... It isn't that I don't like it, but it really doesn't fit my listening habits or why I listen to music. If I do listen to rap it is on my computer or in my car which means all I need is MP3 or FLAC files.

Rarely do I listen to it on my stereo.

Yeah, ditch some of those Greatest Hits and get the originals :D

If you like Zep, no reason why you shouldn't have IV.

Magic is a really odd album to have if you don't have any other Springsteen albums - some of the worst production quality I think I've ever heard from him. "Born in the USA" or "The River" are a lot more listenable.

Dire Straits' self titled album.

Dave Matthews - Some Devil?

Steve Hoffman did a heck of a job with the DCC version of "Aqualung"...instead of having a Tull "best of".

I don't know how big of a Doors fan you are, but the DVD-A Perception box set sounds amazing. Worth every bit of the 7GB it takes up.

More Miles Davis? "Birth of the Cool", "Sketches of Spain", or "*****es' Brew"?

Dave Brubeck fan at all? "Time Out"'s worth a listen...

Doing this without knowing what you have on vinyl doesn't make sense :)

Good input there.


I plan on doing an inventory of my Vinyl soon. What I posted is only part of my database I made. It includes disk condition, case condition, date purchased, price paid, original artwork, complete sets, etc etc.

I want to get all of those Davis records you listed... I'm not that big of a fan of Brubeck, but I'd still merc one of his albums.

But, you should check out A Tribe Called Quest, you might like them. They're pioneers of Hip Hop... not the stuff they play on the radio, they're old school. Also, check out Deftones if you haven't.
Against Me! (Their older stuff is much better. If you can get your hands on a digital copy of their Self-titled EP, consider yourself lucky. I've only found it once and I've burnt like 12 copies because I can't find it again. It's horrible sound quality, but I love it so much.)
Animal Collective (They're a strange bunch. A very unique sound that few actually like. But I love them.)
Beach Boys
Beatles
Big D & The Kid's Table
And I can't believe you don't have Bob Marley! SHAME!
Boston
Bud Powell
Cat Power (My ex got me into them, stfu.)
Catch 22
Daft Punk
Damian Marley (He has a few good tracks. My personal favorite is his Welcome To Jamrock album.)
The Distillers (My all time favorite angsty punk band.)
Gregory And The Hawk (I only like her Boats & Birds EP, and only a few songs from that EP, but Boats & Birds is an amazing song.)
Hot Hot Heat
Incubus
India.Arie
Infected Mushrooms
Iron & Wine
IRON MAIDENNNN
Jefferson Airplane
Jimi Hendrix
Kaki King (Real original guy. It's amazing ambient music.)
Lower Class Brats (Punk band)
Metric
Minus The Bear
Modest Mouse
Operation Ivy
Outkast (I forget which album I liked the most, ATLantia or something like that.)
Pelican City
Peter Tosh
Pink Floyd
The Postal Service
Quantic
Rancid
Ratatat
Reel Big Fish
Rhapsody
Rise Against
Royksopp
Run DMC
Slightly Stoopid
Snoop Dogg
State Radio

No Deftones? I see you're also missing the Crystal Method's Vegas CD. Get the 2 disc reissue. I found a torrent for it on isohunt. You're also missing the Battle of Los Angeles from your RATM collection.

No B.B. King?

Also, check out Coheed and Cambria, any of their 4 albums. Really good prog rock band, and one of my favorites.

Circa Survive, any album, another one of my favorites.

Belle & Sebastian - Tigers Milk

Death Cab for Cutie - Transatlanticism

Man Man - Any one of their albums

Rush - 2112

Err... I'm sure I will think of more, those are just off the top of my head.

Here are some I can think of off the top of my head...

If you like Jet, you'd also like the Arctic Monkeys and the Fratellis.

If you like Massive Attack, you'll like Blackfilm, Ewun, Future Prophecies, Soman, and Technical Itch.

As for the Crystal Method, you'll probably also like The Freestylers, Junkie XL, Overseer, Pendulum, The Prodigy, Propellerheads (guys who did the matrix theme song),

If you like Tonic, you'll also like Oasis and Cracker.

If you like KT Tunstall you'll probably like Lily Allen and maybe The Submarines.

You might as well get some Queens of the Stone Age. Also, Thievery Corporation is a must have for any music collection.

Springsteen - The River (classic Boss...his best album, in my opinion)
The Who - Quadrophenia (my fave Who album)
Eric Johnson - Ah, Via Musicom (one of my fave guitarists...this album is exceptional pop rock and folk)
Between the Buried and Me - Colors (extremely progressive metal...basically everything from bluegrass to math metal)
Joanna Newsom - Ys (one of the best albums of `06...fantastic folk album)
Justice - The Planisphere (dirty French electronic music that is good for a party)
M83 - Saturdays = Youth (new album, indie pop)
Brazil - A Hostage and the Meaning of Life (one of my first non-mainstream loves)
Elliott Smith - Either Or (one of the best acoustic artists in the last 20 years)
Pinback - Blue Screen Life
And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead - Source Tags & Codes
Jesse Cook - Montreal (a Nuevo Flamenco guitarist with excellent skill playing a great live show)
of Montreal - Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer (amazingly diverse pop album about struggling through depression
Steely Dan - Aja (their best album, in my opinion)
Fleetwood Mac - Rumors (some of the best classic rock ever)
Derek and the Dominos - Layla and other Assorted Love Songs (a Clapton must-have)


I`m sure there are some others, but I would consider that a bare minimum. I could not live without these albums after having heard them.

If you like Portishead at all, download their newest album Third. I think it is their best and, according to averaged rankings in music magazines and websites, it was the best album of 2008 (I don`t think it was the best of `08, but it was **** good).
