Usually, the forum resizes images for us. For some reason, it doesn't always do this.

I plan to listen through those early Pink Floyd albums soon. A recent listen to Obscured by Clouds made me realize I have been (wrongly) neglecting their early stuff. I grew up on Dark Side of the Moon and the albums that followed.
I liked Saucer full of Secrets. Soundtrack from 'More' 'Meddle' 'Wish you were here' is my favourite and 'Animals' the last one I truly liked.

I need to listen to this one again at some stage - do you like this group and what did you think of the album?.
I like old music :)

Various albums from the last few days listening:









Got a new set of headphones for my DAP - nothing fancy but they sound quite nice.
Currently listening to the Modest Mouse album - really like this one (easily the groups best IMO).

Tonight's listening:



Played this one a few times this week - Red House Painters' 1st self-titled album (AKA Rollercoaster).



Modest Mouse's latest album - think this one is quite brilliant, especially the single Lampshade's on Fire.
This group is my favourite from the U.S. at the moment - their music is very beautiful and intelligent (albeit in a not very conventional way).



Bit ashamed to say I bought this record over 2 years ago and only giving it a proper listen now.
Edit: I enjoyed listening to Doolittle again (probably a number of years since my last listen) - a classic album for sure.



Another classic album - last one for this session so Ill wish everyone here a good-night and happy listening.

This album, their second, is ok I like it, but it's bit uneven compared to their first Up The Bracket which is really good.

I like the band, sort of garage rock/punk few chords and loads of attitude type of thing. The lyrics can be quite good and the music isn't half bad when you listen more closely.

and since Pete Doherty somehow failed to die they released the new album last year which I haven't heard yet, but has gotten decent reviews.

Thanks for your reply - I like Libertines too and agree that Up The Bracket is a great album (especially like the song Time for Heroes off that one).
I bought the new album last year and I enjoyed it though I only listened to it a couple of times so far - It sounds a lot like their previous records so I imagine you would like it.

Today's listening:



Great album this one - so laid back and tuneful.



Would love to hear some new stuff from this group though Im not sure if they split up or not (I know one of the former members is Father John Misty whose albums I picked up last year and enjoyed).







Bon Iver's self-titled - beautiful album.



Panda Bear's most recent album - on a roll tonight but Ill make this my last post.
Happy listening to everyone.

Now this album was really an anomaly at first for me but it deeply affected me and inspired me to start exploring hip hop/rap, there's really something special about it to me. Stylistic influences on it is also quite diverse with elements of free jazz, soul and funk, among others.
