I *HATE* funk with a passion.
Really enjoyed !!!'s Myth Takes when it came out though.
you shouldn't be allowed to work with children
they do have an element of funk to them mind. I liked the !!! album before that one more, Louden Up! I think it was called...
is mostly a load of old bum but Vitalic's Ok Cowboy is brilliant. He pretty much made half of it durring the electro-clash hayday in around 2001 and was so slow that it became shite stagnent blog house at around 2005 before he could release it though so I guess it just counts.
its a shame electro either went really aggresive and samey or super flimsy and indie after that for the most part. International Deejay Gigolo's and Vitalic where onto something for a while before Ed Banger jumped in and got annoying pretty quick.
I loved lots of the records DFA and Gomma were putting at around then too. It all just got a bit dull a bit quickly.
And as for Justice...
I still like quite a bit of that earlyer stuff and the odd bit of new LCD Soundsystem.
I never really got Justice apart from their own remix of Waters Of Nazareth.
'Waters of Nazareth' promised so much. I still rate it now.
But nothing else ever delivered for me.
Ray Mang (featuring Lady Kier) - Bulletproof
But love both Rihanna & Alliyah's second records.
Aaliyah was fantastic, was gutted when I heard about her death.
For the record, I think Rihanna is pretty worthless, besides a couple singles. Rated R is the worst thing I have heard in the last few months.
Alliyah cool tho.
Not sure I classed it as R&B though? It came out around the same time as LCD Soundsystem's 'SOS' so rather irrationally due to that and having a white front cover I lumped it alongside pop electro more.
Possibly rather incorrectly.
Rihanna's debut - awful. 'Good girl gone bad' - brilliant, see 'Breaking dishes' for further proof. 'Rated R'- a grower, but patchy, though a record with some really interesting lyrics and ideas about how the world (and in particular friend base) perceived her during the whole Chris Brown debacle.
I want to hear those others now...
Ciara? Really? I did like 'Love + Sex + Magic' though...
But her singles are more massive than Rihanna's in my opinion, check this beast: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dCkj98R8dlc
Check this thread for some The-Dream love:
D'angelo - Voodoo is my favorite R&B album of all time:
I forgot to mention R Kellz on that list too. Damn, I love R&B, you should re-evaluate.
A guy I work with only listens to the stuff so over the past 7 months I'm definitely getting (into) it a lot more
I've got a soft spot for him too.
I felt like he was all that was wrong with modern chart music, but I have been warming to his annoying ways and now I enjoy some of the stuff he puts out there.
I think he 'gets it' and realizes he is a douche and that makes it all more fun, and thats all it is, fun.
I found him annoying for ages until something just clicked. I reckon it was Chopped & Screwed that did it.
That's what did it for me.
"Put you in a mansion, up in Wiscansin"
The video is the tops.
both the remixes (one with JT and the other with Lil Wayne) are ridiculously good.
YOU LOOOOK SO GEEEEEEEEEEEEWWWWWWWWWDDDDD
but I really like Porcupine Tree, hmmm.
as fucking Pink Floyd
I don't like pink floyd though
Porcupine Tree have some really good songs. I'm just sick of the fact that some of my friends think they're the most forward-thinking band arond. when they're clearly not. A good solid band, though.
its been through changes. R&B is now used as a blanket term just like Rock, Jazz and Indie.
Maybe vamos shoulda said Contemporary R&B, but really, who wants to say that.
got no time for him whatsoever.
But "A Charlie Brown Christmas" by Vince Guaraldi is a gem.
But in my case replace the Charlie Brown OST with the Grim Fandango OST.
