Recently I'm obsessed with The Who's Meaty Beaty Big & Bouncy, and also Billy Cobham. I've probably listened to Stratus 30x on repeat in the last couple days, and in the car I just keep MBB&B on repeat as well.

The album's been making the rounds for some time and it's definitely one of my favorites this year. Like with most of Mike Patton's recent stuff it really grows with each listen.

Pitchfork's iffy. They give that thing 7.3 and Sigur Ros' "( )" .3 more? Yikes. Of course, Radiohead gets 9 and above (deservedly) but then stuff like the Rakes or QOTSA gets shafted. I dunno. My newish listens: -QOTSA's "Era Vulgaris": Fuck it's good to be back. See if "Sick Sick Sick" does nothing for you. -Elliott Smith's "New Moon": A lot of old stuff that had been available free online that finally made its way to a sound engineer who tenderly beat the crap out of it until it bleed magic. "New Diaster" is what I'd recommend off this 2-CD set. -Bayside's "The Walking Wounded": If Smoking Popes met up with Matchbook Romance , this is what their post-emo lovechild would sound like. Verdict is still out but check out "Carry On." -Chevelle's "Vena Sera": Much of the same from the last two albums with the exception of a new bassist. My friend swears this is their best release yet, I just think it's their most rounded and polished. Chevelle's always been the melodic choice between Deftones and Tool and while this album is no exception, they do a great job while confining themselves to their own sound. "Humanoid" is a make-or-break test to see if you'll like them at all. My fav track is still "Family System" off the "Wonder What's Next Album." It starts off Tool and goes into a Deftones riff. I realize that I'm repeating myself regarding their main influences, but they really know the old adage "if it ain't broke..." and still kick some ass. -DMBQ's "The Essential Sounds From the Far East": A psychedelic fuckfest hailing from Japan, DMBQ is 1970 all over again. Endless fuzz guitar riffs, thrashing drums, playful vocals spewing meaningless sex-laiden lyrics, and more experimenting in 47 mins than is done in a meth lab in San Bernardino, CA. "She Walks" will show you the way... -Fu Manchu's "King of the Road": Why haven't I listened to these SoCal stoners before? -Quincy Jones' "Big Band Bossa Nova": Yes, the first track happens to have been used as the Austin Powers theme song, but the rest of the album is pure swank. And sure, it's a bastardization of the work previously done by Getz, Gilberto, etc., but Jones had THIS GUY: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S0JJmwq7KXQ (Rahsaan Roland Kirk)

I can't stop listening to LCD Soundsystem's new record. I also saw them last weekend at the El Rey. Awesome show - go see them if you have a chance.

The Who; one of the best live bands ever, even now...

I'm in a Cobham phase at the moment, Spectrum and Crosswinds.
Tommy Bolin- Awsome dude (as I believe you may say in the US ) Shame he died so young. Check out some of the Cobham live Mahavishnu stuff on You Tube- Rockin' (as we say in the UK)

My tastes are completely eclectic, having worked in music my whole life, but I lean towards the jazz stuff these days.

Another vote for QotSA here. Was initially disappointed with Wilco's very tame and subdued effort, but it's growing on me.
