The CDs in my changer

name the five or six CDs you have in your CD changer/player and/or in your DVD/CDRW drive in your puter right now


this should help us get more knowledge about each other
and also give each other ideas of other sounds to get to know

in my five disk CD changer right now are

1)Keys To Ascension 2
2)The Ladder
3)Anderson Buford Wakeman and Howe
4)Jon Anderson's CHANGE WE MUST
5)Burned Peter Gabriel stuff - mostly oddities, long versions, live versions and soundtracks Including I GRIEVE which i first heard eerily enough a year ago (before that day)

In my car player is MAGNIFICATION

and my DVD and CDRW drives are both empty right now

I have a 25 disc changer, so I'm not sure if I can remember them all.

Every King's X Album
Rush - Hemispheres thru Grace Under Pressure
Michael Jackson's albums
Queensryche - Operation Mindcrime
The Soundtrack to Logan's Run
?

In my car, some Star Trek movie theme songs CD.

Aren't I diverse?

In my truck: Yes - Keys to Ascension I,
Peter Frampton - Extended Versions
James Taylor - Greatest Hits
Sonic Flood - Not sure of the cd title, someone gave it to me to learn some songs for Sundays (Christian group).
At home: a small compilation of Disney tunes from a box of Mickey's Magix cereal, and a cd called Kidz Bop.

My current playlist:

1. Yes - Live at Radio City Hall August 2002 (bootleg)
2. Mahavishnu Orchestra - Between Nothingness & Eternity (Live 1973)
3. Tweenies - It's Show Time! (Jack's only 18-months old and try as hard as I can he's not a great Yes fan - yet)
4. RHCP - One Hot Minute
5. Yes Symphonic DVD

But to be honest, unless my junior 'critic' is in the car it's normally 1. that's chosen and on the PC it's 5.

Am picking up a copy of The Dukes Of Stratosphear - 25 O'Clock
from a mate this weekend and am told it's very good. Sort of an XTC spin off type thing I think.

Many Queensryche fans live and die by this album. Assuming you are a Rush fan since Vapor Trails was in your current selection, it is the 2112 of Queensryche's catalog.

Is it really good? I think it is the emergence of their sound. The story is compelling, but not epic like Yes or Rush. With Queensryche they sometimes embellish their concept albums with one or two too many songs.

My recommendation if you are looking for the best Queensryche album is to get Promised Land which is a concept album with much more polish than Mindcrime. Some Q fans would think that blasphemy. Kinda like Hemispheres is more polished than 2112.

If you don't have any Queensryche, this is the album preference for me.

1. Promised Land
2. Hear In The Now Frontier
3. Empire
4. Operation Mindcrime
5. all the others

I've never heard a concept album that ISN'T embellished with one or two too many songs, or 'movements' or whatever.

they sound incredibly the same in a lot of songs

Also, got various sizzled Peter Gabriel in the changer
i can't stop listening to I GRIEVE

i am still looking forward to hearing you guys as far as what you got in now, and what moods you're in

Yesterday (9/12) I spun the following:

Bruce Springsteen-The Rising
Neil Young-Are You Passionate?
(both of these I'd planned to listen to on 9/11, but forgot 'em at home)
the first hour of Jim Ladd's 9/11/02 show, which I'd taped the night before
The Band-Stage Fright

A (mostly) American-themed menu. <img src=pix/icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle> Amazing that The Band's music is regarded as "great American-sounding music" when all of them (except Levon Helm) are Canadian. <img src=pix/icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle> I guess Neil falls under this category too...

Don't know yet what's up for today. (it's only 9 AM here)

Well since I don't have a car disc changer to speak of, I'll list a few CDs, offhand, that I've brought with me to Derby for one week, which is in the midlands of England (as opposed to Fareham where I live, which is on the south coast):

Yes - "Classic Yes" custom 2 CD-R compilation (if I go ANYWHERE for more than three days, at least one Yes CD is coming with me!)
Jimi Hendrix - First Rays of the New Rising Sun (a very good posthumous album, which is apparently close to what his 4th album would've been like; but I've never gotten to listen all the way through it!)
Pat Metheny - Secret Story
Samael - Eternal
Enigma - Love Sensuality Devotion: The Greatest Hits
The Gathering - How to Measure a Planet? 2CD set

And, borrowed from a guy who lives just down the street from me who I jam with sometimes (he's a drummer):
Korn - Untouchables (quite good, surprisingly)
System of a Down - Toxicity (not quite as good to my ears but not awful; VERY VERY heavy)

That's a good sampling! <img src=pix/icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle>

got home from work today to find a couple of CDs that I ordered from GFT

so at the moment it's

Spocks Beard - Snow (3 CD version)

Flamborough Head - One for the Crow (Dutch band, shades of Renaissance but proggier)

also recently Magnification after a 2 month lay off and various Mostly Autumn CDs. Oh, and Robert Plant's Dreamland.

It's different - out of his work so far, I'd say it's closest to Page & Plant's No Quarter (the 'unplugged' CD). Folky and Worldly are two words that spring to mind. If you're going to download, check out his take on 'Hey Joe' - if you like that then buy the CD.

It's kinda boring... My favourite football (soccer) team is not very good. Once upon a time they were okay - in fact in 1909 they reached the cup final for the only time in their history. I'm hoping I'll be changing my name to Ed2003 but I suspect that's <i>very</i> unlikely!

In my car now:
OVO - Peter Gabriel (UP for sale in the shops today, so I'll get it!)
The Rising - Springsteen
Live Rust - Neil Young
Ompa til du dör - Kaizers Orchestra (never mind, Norwegian)
Ringo 2 - Compilation
( a friend of mine contacted 14 people we know well and invited all to join him in a CD-ring. We all burn one CD with favourites, hidden gems etc. and get 13 in return from the other guys. Quite fun. Ringo 2 is my contribution, and I will of course push some Yes.)

12/11/74 Boston Gardens.

What a setlist---CTTE, AYAI, Roundabout, Ritual, all of Relayer. Other than Moraz's keyboards being woefully out of tune in places, this is one of my favorite tapes. Looks like Ritual was the only tune from this show that wasn't broadcast.
