Arctic Monkeys are cool, they have a good sound.
Oh, btw I made a typo in my post up there ^, it was meant to say Dime"bag" Darrell not Dime"bad" Darrell. My bad ..
Some good artists I think I should mention are:
Pantera and Papa Roach are pretty good if you're into metal. I only recently discovered them . AFI are pretty freakin awesome too, but they're
punk, alternative if anyone's into that. Korn aren't bad either, love the songs 'Evolution' and 'Word Up'
Oh oh and also I love LOVE the song 'As the World Falls Down' by David Bowie from one of the best movies ever, Labyrinth. This song is probably my
favourite. Everyone should listen to it, it's awesome
A great artisit I've not long discovered is David Sylvian, he's a lot like David Bowie, oddly their voices are really similar as well as their looks
lol. I love the song he did with Ryuichi Sakamoto 'Forbidden Colours'. I haven't watched the movie it's from, maybe someday. But this song, I
could listen to it on repeat and not get sick of it.
Some of my favourite artists and their albums are:
If you haven't heard Nelly Furtado's album Folklore, then you should! One of the best I've ever heard. Much, much better than Loose, which seems a
lot more commercial but oh well. Her Whoa, Nelly! album is pretty good too.
Another favourite album of mine is Kevin Max's Stereotype Be. Great to listen to all the way through. I absolutely love the song 'Dead End Moon',
when I listen to it, it's so easy to visualise the lyrics and creates a great atmosphere. Stereotype Be kind of has a Gothic/ Medieval feel to it,
not in the style of music, but when you're listening to it, you just get that sense, well me anyway. He's a Christian, but that shouldn't be a put
off, because his style and his songs are always interesting.
Same goes for Falling Up. They're a Christian band, but the remixes of some of their songs are just so amazing. Easy to get caught up in. Take 'the
Islander' for instance, whenever I close my eyes and listen to this song, it's just like "Wow!" Most of the best songs (the remixes) are from the
album Exit Lights. Escalates is a good song too. Seriously, their songs, especially the ones from Exit Lights, are really good. Great techno,
ambient artistry lol.
Evermore's Dreams is another good album worth listening to. Great artistry, there are so many layers to all of the songs. I always like listening to
this album when I'm drawing or making art, it's really inspiring.
Um, and also dc Talk. I grew up in a Christian home, so I've listened to a lot of Christian artists, and I really think some of them don't get the
recognition they deserve for their music. One of dc Talk's best albums, for me, is Supernatural, especially the song Red Letters. The start of it
just sounds so mystical and beautiful. Dc Talk will always remain one of my favourite ever bands, I just love their music.
And of course tobyMac, he was in dc Talk along with Kevin Max and Michael Tait until they split up. I love tobyMac's second album Welcome to Diverse
City. It's a good album. The song 'Ill-M-I' is pretty good (great beat) and 'Diverse City'. The album's mainly rap, hip-hop infused with rock,
it's pretty good. The song 'Catchafire (Whoopsi-Daisy)' is pretty rockin, and also 'The Slam'. Although tobyMac's first album is more rock,
it's really good as well
Also, I suppose mainly for Christians, Mercy Me are pretty awesome. They have a way of making you feel so much emotion and wonder in their songs.
Songs like 'I Can Only Imagine' 'Word of God Speak' 'Here With Me' 'In the Blink of an Eye' and 'Homesick'. Just great music, no wonder
they're Grammy Award nominated and Dove Award winning. Just beautiful.
Oh and I cannot forget to mention the Newsboys! Anyone ever heard that song 'Love Liberty Disco'? Man, I have such good memories associated with
that song lol. The Newsboys were another Christian band I grew up listening to along with dc Talk and a few others. The Newsboys were pretty cool and
Il Divo's Ancora album was amazing! Truly wonderful and inspiring, well, if you're into classical, opera sounding music.
A few years ago I bought the album Bethany Dillon by Bethany Dillon, also a Christian artist. If you ever listen to any song on that album, it should
be 'Beautiful', this song is so amazing!! It always makes me cry. The emotion and the lyrics are so powerful.
This album is nice because, it's not too rocky, it's just nice to listen to, very simple.
Ok, I guess that's it, I should stop now lol
