mc DJ - Utterances of the Heart
mc DJ - Illin-Noise!
Cowboy Bebop Original Soundtrack #1

Do yourself a favor and listen to the first two. They're free because the man who makes them is awake. He doesn't need money.

We can even start a thread to all the metaphysical or socio-political commentary he slips in to wake up the masses.

Cowboy Bebop is just golden.

STATE YOUR:

1. Year of Birth

2. The Three Music Albums that YOU Think Represent Your Generation


And if anyone posts a Li'l Kim album, all I have to say is
norikey

But, SERIOUSLY--rock out with ye olde cocks out!!!!

If you can, embed a YouTube link to the the albums!

AND REMEMBER--we're talking about ALBUMS (LPs or EPs) that you are PROUD to have REPRESENT YOUR GENERATION.

*********

As for ME...

DOB: 7/17/1979

1. Siamese Dream by The Smashing Pumpkins
2. Razorblade Suitcase by Bush
3. The Infamous by Mobb Deep

Could someone please embed these for me? I can't embed from my mobile.

Here are my three (please embed for me):

[link to m.youtube.com] SIAMESE DREAM by The Smashing Pumpkins

[link to m.youtube.com] RAZORBLADE SUITCASE by Bush

[link to m.youtube.com] THE INFAMOUS by Mobb Deep

Sorry I can't embed myself.

I agree with you except I would replace the smashing pumkins with Nirvana Nevermind. I think it represents a larger portion of the "grunge revolution" than did the Pumpkins.

Pumpkins arent even grunge any more but thats where they started. You just can not leave out the Seattle Grunge scene from the 90's

Re: YOUR GENERATION - The 3 Quintessential Albums - WHAT ARE THEY?
Born: 1968

Goodness - I don't think I could ever narrow down to just 3....I mean, where do I put greats like Dark Side Of The Moon, The Wall, Led Zepplin IV, Who's Next, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, Back in Black, Synchronicity, Breakfast in America, The Stranger, Late for the Sky, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Moondance, Toys in the Attic, Fragile, At Fillmore East, UYI I and II, oh I could go on and on and on...

So narrowing down to 3 is a bit of a stretch for me. But I think I can list 5 that had the most IMPACT - not necessarily that I think the following are any greater than say....Led Zepplin IV, but these did have the greatest *impact* on me at the time - for varied reasons of course; another commonality for these five is that I enjoy just about every single song on each album, and since I have listened to them thousands of times through the years, they all share the 'next track' phenomenon...you know, when you hear a song on the radio and get so lost in it that when it's over and the dj then actually has the nerve to play *something else* instead of the proper track that comes 'next' and then you are startled for a sec and change the station in disgust.....

After narrowing it down, I had to really laugh at myself because the result is...well...quite cheesy for the most part, lol!

5.) Hotel California; Eagles - I was eight when this album was released and I remember sitting in my dad's truck, listening to HC on the radio and thinking that it was the greatest song I'd ever heard. I grew up to love the rest of the album much more than HC! Classic, and timeless: I think my youngest, aged 20, loves it as much as I do, lol!

4.) Escape;; Journey - So many memories - where to even start? The first time I heard a Sony Walkman was at my friend's house and her neighbor had this cassette in it and gave me the earphones to listen. I was immediately hooked..Saved my babysitting money and bought myself a Walkman as soon as I could. I probably went through 7 or 8 cassettes of this (and at least two vinyl albums) throughout my high school years. I think all girls raised in the 80s probably lived and cried through this album. "Don't Stop Believin" could get you through any bad spot, "Open Arms" was the perfect "cry-your-heart-out-when- you-heard-it-on-the-radio-after-you-broke-up-with-someone" song. "Stone in Love" still takes me back to free-wheeling teen days of going to the lake on a warm summer day...IAnd I can't even begin to count the number of times I've listened to this on the beach! Another timeless record - my 21 year old daughter discovered it when she was about 13 :)

3.) Boston;; Boston - I would have a disgustingly nasty house without Boston :) This is my "get up and go" music - of course listened to more often than not when I am alone so that I can freely sing at the top of my lungs and dance and do air guitar while mopping, or vacuuming or folding laundry. Oh, and if it's springtime and sunny and 70 degrees and I'm driving down the road? You can almost guarantee I've got "Peace of Mind" playing - almost as loud as my speakers will play without distortion. Delp's voice echoing off everything around me with the wind blowing through my hair and the sun shining on my face...doesn't get much better than that as far as I am concerned.

2.) Rumours;; Fleetwood Mac - My dad turned me on to Fleetwood Mac. I distinctly remember the cover art for Rumours (and also for the previous self-titled Fleetwood Mac) and thinking those covers were just the coolest thing around. It's hard to pick Rumours over FM but Rumours had "The Chain" on it so it gets my #2. I learned so much about music through these two albums - there is such depth and substance to the writing! However, with "Rumours" I am in complete awe of how this band was actually able to record the album considering their collective state(s) of mind at the time. I mean, can you imagine John McVie's thought process when they were recording "You Make Loving Fun" (supposedly Christine's tribute to her new lover - their lighting director)? Or the passion you feel from Buckingham's "Go Your Own Way"? And the aching melancholy of Stevie's "Dreams"?

1.) Anyone who knows me well knows my number one would be vintage GnR: Appetite for Destruction;;. As much as I love the other 4 on this list, Appetite is hands down my number 1 of all time. Having said that, it doesn't even contain my favorite GnR song(s) on it - but this is the album that introduced me to GnR and completely renewed my faith in rock and roll (after all, this was the late 80's). This band can go from phenomenally complex to brilliantly simple from one track to another....and while I love the masterpiece that is "Estranged" (or "There Was A Time" or "Coma" - none of which are on AFD), and the sheer fun and simplicity of "Used to Love Her" or "One in a Million" or the melodic "Yesterday" or bluesy "Breakdown" or reggae inspired cover of "Knocking On Heaven's Door" or funky "If the World"......(again, *none* of which are on AFD) - it is quite an accomplishment that THIS album has so many lesser known tracks that equal or even exceed the MTV heavily rotated hits of "Sweet Child O' Mine" or "Welcome to the Jungle". From start to finish this album just hits you in the gut and repeated listens don't overplay the songs, they deepen them...."Nightrain", "It's so Easy", "Mr. Brownstone", "Rocket Queen" (one of their best imo) and "My Michelle" - all somewhat dark, merciless, and chaotic - are what turned me into the fan I am today. Axl's primal screams and sweet melodies are supported to near perfection by Izzy's and Slash's dueling guitars that conjure raw passion yet a very intricate and even intimate feel against the backdrop of Duff and Adler's pounding bass and drums.....This is an album that somehow treads between heavy rock and metal, combining a wonderful bluesy foundation to the harder metal sound while still keeping the melodies complete. AFD revived rock and roll, turned on an entire new generation(s) to rock, and has definitely stayed the test of time. I love that on any given day I might walk in my house and hear WTTJ playing - by one of my sons (or husband) :) Hmm..I think after writing this I'll go play it again......................;)
