Best album for a Sunday morning? - Page 2

post #16 of 32
I tend to listen to classical music on Sundays.  Sunday is my day for family and reflection, and classical music seems to fit that mood better than other genres. Last Sunday, my favorite cd on the changer was Rachmaninoff's Vespers, a Russian choral piece.

I usually start off with some triphop or jazz, but the more I read the newspaper and drink down the coffee the more agitated I get. By the time I'm ready to pay attention to anything outside of my little ritual, I've usually got on some hardcore. I've found that the best slow morning listening should be (for me) something that I can pay attention to or ignore, an album that is well knit as opposed to a collection of singles, and expansive enough in feeling to encourage my mind to kick into high gear.

Anything by Black Sabbath. Particulary "War Pigs" these days...

Get the FNM cover (Sacred Reich also does one, heh) koji

FNM did a funny cover of "Spanish Eyes" and a terrific one of "War Pigs" (live).  Mike's a super talented guy, but he gets his jollies off of mocking people 24/7; it's amusing at first but gets old quickly, and if you don't share in his mockery he gets really nasty.  Did provide me with some funny-ass stories of when they toured with Metallica, though. koji
Ha. I was messin. I know he's a d-bag, but I happen to love most everything he does. I am, however, staying as far away as possible from that project he did w/the Executioners or whatever.

I haven't heard any of the other stuff he's done outside of Mr. Bungle (which is absolutely brilliant, imo). How is Fantomas, etc? koji

Ken (or Thracozaag) - Did you guys ever hear the stuff he did with Dillinger Escape Plan? I heard about it, but never actually heard it... I saw Mr. Bungle a few years back and they opened, what a change from opener to headliner.

Am I to assume this is Faith No More? Oops- went back and read the thread- lo and behold my answer

Best album?. Aren't you too busy preparing coffee and fresh squeezed orange juice for the beautiful girl who couldn't resist coming home with you Saturday night - then making love to her for the fifth time?

Reminds me of an ashtray I saw as a boy on the desk of one of my father's employees. I didn't understand the significance for years... Once a king, always a king; but once a knight is enough.

Son Volt Trace. Morcheeba Who Can You Trust. Rufus Wainwright Poses. Weird mix, but great for the NYT Sunday Crossword. Someone else mentioned Dire Straits. Probably the best driving music ever.

Fantomas is very good. Very noisy and artsy, but somehow managing to be catchy at the same time. Tomahawk is even more mainstream/radio friendly than Mr. Bungle. They're alright. One of my buddies absolutely loves them, even more than FNM. But if I'm listening to Patton, I like it to be less accessible than what Tomahawk seems to me. My absolute favorite project he's done is Lovage. Jennifer Charles' voice sounds just amazing on that record. The beats and instrumentals are killer, too. The best part is that it's cheezy, sure, but in no way overdone. The new stuff he did w/Bjork is wonderful. Shoreman, the DEP collaboration was alright, but I don't think either Patton's or Dillinger's biggest strengths were showcased. Some of the tech stuff of DEP was compromised to showcase more of Patton's vocals, and vice versa. As a huge DEP fan, though, I dug it.

I'll have to check some of things out, thanks for the report. Along with Primus (they opened up for RUSH), Mr. Bungle played probably the most amazing rock concert I've ever witnessed. Amazing musicians. koji

Yeah, I picked it up, but I agree with ken: the EP felt like a compromise between the technical insanity that Patton and DEP are capable of. Maybe more of a compromise on Dillinger's part, because the first thing I thought of when I heard Miss Machine was that Mike Patton had really influenced Greg's style a lot.
