My current favorite genres are experimental, ambient and noise (as well as some punk.) I used to be super into ultra-fast stuff like grindcore, but not so much anymore.

My current favorite music, in no particular order (note that this doesn't necessarily mean I love all of their albums):
Weird Al Yankovic, Boards of Canada, Radiohead, Deerhoof, Bad Religion, A Place To Bury Strangers, The Glitch Mob, Lightning Bolt, White Suns, Yamantaka // Sonic Titan, The Stargazer Lilies, Black Moth Super Rainbow, Yellow Swans, My Bloody Valentine, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Air, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Mono, Youth Lagoon, Ramones, Circle Jerks, AFI (late 90s-early 2000s), Melt-Banana, Drunkdriver, Coachwhips, Fuck Buttons, Prurient, Black Dice, Animal Collective, Panda Bear, etc.

They're an easy target: a well-established rock band that plays formulaic, radio-safe songs about drinking, drugs and sex. Bashing them has become a way of saying "hey everyone, I need to emphasize my complex and sophisticated musical tastes by ... See full review

The cover image is an 1885 painting by Ilya Repin, showing the aftermath of Ivan the Terrible killing his son on November 16, 1581.

This might just be the first CD I ever bought - it may be cheesy, but it makes me feel like a hopeful ten-year-old again, and I love it to death. I'm praying it'll get a vinyl release someday.

I really wish the classic THPS soundtracks would have gotten proper releases. Still scratching my head over what they were thinking with this "music from and inspired by" the game (as in two songs featured in the game and eleven from who knows where?)

The original image for the cover art can be seen in the 1989 Reader's Digest book "Great Disasters", showing the aftermath of a tornado that struck Xenia, Ohio in 1974.

They're different versions, but not all that different. It's cool to hear less-studio-refined versions of those I guess, but when they were described as "two previously unreleased recordings", I was hoping they'd be actual new songs. The metal cover is ... See full review

From Weird Al's "Rare Items" archive:

"This is the only authorized extended mix of an Al song that wasn't issued by his label. It's an odd choice for a dance mix since it's a ballad, but with loops and samples, it's even more twisted than Al's original ... See full review

meecrob87 Needs a LP release! i'll second that

I'll third that! The album's Wikipedia page mentions "vinyl pressings", but I have yet to see even a picture of one. My inner eight-year-old self is yearning for it!

If this is really going to be Weird Al's last traditional album, it's a great one to go out on. There's much better variety than Alpocalypse, without any truly skippable songs in the bunch. My favorite original is "My Own Eyes" (an exhilarating, ... See full review

I picked this record up out of sheer curiosity, not sure what to expect, and wouldn't you know it: I just can't get enough of it. It's sloppy, drunk, playful, feel-good lo-fi rock with the instruments (guitar, bass, organ, tambourine, etc.) somehow ... See full review

The artwork should have just consisted of "PLEASE DO NOT BUY THIS RECORD" against a blank background: it would have conveyed the same message in a way-less-gross way.
