Best Composers (All Genres) Of All Time

I added the Stones. Same reason as Zappa really - sheer consistency, these guys were incredibly successful so many times.

I've only really heard Brahms briefly, the other two I'm not really familiar with. I've always found Ellington a bit annoying, but I'll give him a relisten and see what I think. Thanks for the suggestions!

Tell you guys what, as so many people speak so highly of Free Jazz music and I only like but a fraction of it, I shall listen to it more in this next week and tell you what I think. It's weird, one of the Free Jazz albums (Barbed Wire Maggots) I actually love is actually Industrial, do you know of any others of that type?

Best Albums of the 70's

Also, WOW at Starsailor, it could even be better than Lorca but I've placed it just 0.5 below at this point. Favourite song? Mine is either Song to the Siren or Down by the Borderline.

Darktremor's current favorite tracks and albums - November 2008 on

I'm so paranoid about not passing that I am working my ass off (meaning I study about 30 minutes before I go to bed the night before a test) to pass.

Sarcasm?

Inglourious Basterds

Looks awesome, I can't wait for it, it won't be a Pulp Fiction but will probably be lots of fun. It's quite irritating with people getting annoyed about the US soldiers glorifying war and condemning the Germans, as if Tarantino has intended to make this film true to history. That's like criticising Kill Bill for not showing assassins in their true light.

Oh right, I understand. I personally don't mind the content, but I'd much rather learn it in a freeform environment where I could just read and produce as I please, not with deadlines etc.

Well I'd wanna hear the story, if it wouldn't be too much hassle and you didn't mind sharing?

Best Rock Albums Ever (according to me)

Hey Luke, what do you think of these albums (based on your scale)

Tim Buckley - Starsailor
Robert Wyatt - End of An Ear
Rolling Stones - Exile on Main St.
Tangerine Dream - Zeit
Cop Shoot Cop - Consumer Revolt
Spring Heel Jack - Disappeared

And the avant garde:

Meredith Monk - Dolmen Music
Diamanda Galas - Litanies of Satan

Sorry I know there's quite a few! Just curious for your opinion is all. I'm a little surprised to see no Cop Shoot Cop or Tangerine Dream on here.

Darktremor believes...

if I had a son and he was dying, and killing a stranger and taking their organs was the only way to save his life, I would do it. Most of us would.

Really? Wouldn't the guilt crush you? Yes your son would live, but at what cost?

Fripp sure is hugely talented (and innovative), though I'm not sure I'm convinced he produced any great works other than In The Court of The Crimson King and the quite good Red. Maybe I'm wrong.

When I hear the Beatles, I think of a more mainstream Barrett on some songs, particularly his Piper tracks such as Bike, Lucifer Sam and Flaming.

If you don't like Van, I'm not sure you'd warm to Tim Buckley very easily, he's avant garde folk rock, with a smidgen of jazz thrown in here and there.

Also, you're being a bit of a hypocrite, you said on your own list 'It's my personal favourites' and something about why you felt others didn't deserve placement. I think I may just do the same.

After all, it's my favourites and all. Trying to be objective within aesthetics is stupid.

Nice links, I now understand your points much more, thanks! :)

AfterHours is very patient and I respect him for that. I on the other hand, am too lazy to hold proper discourse when no progress will be made and no-one will make any point the other cares about. This debate has been made before.

However, on your selections - nice ideas!

The ones I'd most consider are Robert Fripp and Syd Barrett. What are your favourite works by them?

Also, I'd be interested to know, what do you think of Tim Buckley and Van Morrison?
