Hey! Music is cool, right? What does Twins Daily listen to?

Me? I'm completely stuck in the 90s. If there is band with ties to Mark Lanegan, you can be sure I'm listening.

So, yeah. Music.

Lot of 90's myself. I can't get over Rolling Stone when they rolled out the best songs ever by decade how low the 90's were. It must be a generation thing. I also like new Dupstep, new alternative rock like Chevelle, Lil Wayne, Drake is alright... I am a fan of new artists that actually put something into their work. I've trended away... far away from country music. I just can't listen to the garbage they play. Some new stuff is good, but I think I've just become too high strung to enjoy *someone complaining about their life*.

There seems to be a lot of disdain toward the 90s due to Grunge. I think the original Seattle bands are great. A lot of the rock bands that came after them were pretty awful, and I think the lines have been blurred over time.

Smerf, there's plenty of good country, but the problem is that they don't seem to like to play that. I went to Zac Brown Band at Target Center in November, and that was among the top 5 or so best concerts I've ever seen.

I'm a huge fan of music, and I have over 8500 mp3s and 400+ CDs of all different genres. I was a vocal performance minor in college, so I have a high appreciation for music. That said, I'm a big fan of Christian music, working as security for Sonshine Festival in Willmar every summer. I've had the chance to meet a lot of great artists there and enjoy a ton of great bands.

My problem with Pearl Jam is that they don't demonstrate much musical and vocal diversity--they seem to exploit the same kind of brooding guitars and vocals throughout all their hits--though sometimes their poignancy is undeniable. While I like the sound, beyond Pearl Jam's lyrics (and even then...), I don't necessarily find them particularly artistic.

Pearl Jam just has nothing on Nirvana, imo.

I don't know if that's entirely fair. They play a range of styles and their sound has evolved quite a bit over two decades. They haven't really added instruments, they don't do a ton with percussion and Vedder's voice is what it is. I still see them as the quintessential garage band and they are extremely good live. That probably impacts my opinion as I have probably seen them 15 times in concert and they never disappoint and always mix up their sets.

Yeah, I think some of why I dog PJ is because I see the potential to be as great as I feel those two bands are. I just personally can't get past a few things. So I don't want to come off as bashing them, they just never captured my attention.

Brad Swanson
02-27-2013, 04:45 PM
I've seen Pearl Jam about 10 times and Foo Fighters maybe 5 times. Both put on a really great show, but PJ blows FF out of the water. I think the live experience really made me appreciate PJ and Eddie Vedder a lot more than I originally did. I can totally understand why people rag on Eddie's voice, but I love it and I think it's gotten much better over the years.

Where does everyone stand on Queens of the Stone Age? They seem to bridge a gap between PJ and Nirvana, artistic but no-nonsense at the same time.

Of course I love Boom, but the organ is the only instrument they have really added outside of the guitars and drums. I am typically a huge fan of strings or horns on top of guitar/drums, would love to see Pearl Jam experiment with that at some point.

Yes, very good point. Are you into the Afghan Whigs at all? I like how they use non-traditional rock instruments.

Muse is outstanding. I've more than warmed up to them, they have such a cool, eclectic sound. They produce more with three guys than some bands do with 5. Also, I know they are the trendy rock pick these days, but El Camino was a fantastic record by the Black Keys.

I've listened to so much rap lately, just because of the sad state of rock bands on the radio currently. It's tough to think of any rock bands outside of the Dave Grohl led bands, The Black Keys, Muse, Pearl Jam, and Tool that are consistantly making good rock music. Wolfmother maybe? RHCP's last album was pretty much a death wish. They used to be great. I love Jack White's bands, but realize he is pretty niche and not really for everyone. I guess I'm just try to say, the Shinedown, Chevelle, and Nickelback sound is getting overbearing. Please no more Shinedown. It's awful.

I always liked listening to some of the bands that Kurt Cobain found so intriguing (Flipper, Pixies, The Vaselines, to name but a few). The man was a phenomenal talent in that not only could he produce great music, but he also had a good ear for it as well.

Bon Scott had Soul and fantastic pacing and it was natural. It wasn't like he put a lot of music theory thought into it... he just did it.

Brian Johnson is a screamer... Looks like he's taking a dump on stage just getting the notes out.

Bon Scott is the clear winner and I don't think it's that close.

I love classical music. Listen to some every day. I used to have a great weight-lifting mix that was all classical music, and people who heard it thought it was great. Then that mp3 player was stolen, and I haven't been able to find the songs again (I mixed it from a friend's computer who has as many days and hours of classical music on his computer as I have total music). Classical has a lot of different stuff, depending on my mood. Debussy for some relaxing music, Tchaikovsky for more upbeat stuff, Beethoven for a good collection of combination sympony/vocal, and Mozart/Bach for background music as I work around the house. I do feel blessed to have been exposed to a lot of different classical music when I was in college as a vocal performance minor.

I like it, wouldn't say it is my favorite album (mostly because of how much I like many of their other albums). I would agree that it really does well live.

I do have a story about Binaural that can bring it back to baseball a little bit. The day that Peter Gammons had his brain aneurysm (June 2006) Pearl Jam was playing at Xcel. They knew Gammons pretty well (he is a huge fan) so they asked for some good positive energy from the crowd on his behalf and then they dedicated "Light Years" to him, which was his favorite song at the time. Every time I hear that song or anything off of Binaural I always think of that moment. It was pretty awesome, especially since he recovered.

I was at that show too. I am still annoyed with Tom Petty for headlining and thus cutting PJ's set short.

To this day, I do not understand how Light Years wasn't a massive hit. It's so poppy and so beautiful. It's a personal favorite.

Riot Act is so great. 1/2 Full and Help, Help are such underrated songs.

I still hate Tom Petty because of those concerts. He played the same set both nights and threatened to not have Vedder come out unless the crowd cheered more. I thought he should stop sucking. Crowd was ornery though it was fun. But we got half the Pearl Jam for twice the money.

Riot Act is probably my favorite album.

How is that a blending of classical with electronica? Because she has an electric violin? It sounds more like she's fiddling and not playing classical violin. She took lessons as a kid but she isn't truly classically trained. Not that it's bad, but it's hardly a mesh with classical imo.
