THE trip-hop album. I don't have any word to say about this. It's amazing. This, The private press, Air's moon safari and Garbage's debut describes my childhood.
Goldfrapp - Felt Mountain
Amazing. Beautiful. Graceful. Will Gregory seem to understand every single breath from Alison Goldfrapp voice: In this album, everything seems to be in perfect combination with her voice. And it's not all about that: Alison seem to keep her soul as she were in a Mountain, as she felt the mountain. And breathes the morning with her soul.
Tricky - Maxinquaye
Air- Moon Safari
This describes my childhood. I remember my first depression was in the same time I started to love this album. And it was, for some time, the reason I was alive.

1 Radiohead - OK Computer
Using the textured soundscapes of The Bends as a launching pad, Radiohead delivered another startlingly accomplished set of modern guitar rock with OK Computer. The anthemic guitar heroics present on Pablo Honey and even The Bends are nowhere to be heard here. Radiohead have stripped away many of the obvious elements of guitar rock, creating music that is subtle and textured yet still has the feeling of rock & roll. Even at its most adventurous -- such as the complex, multi-segmented "Paranoid Android" -- the band is tight, melodic, and muscular, and Thom Yorke's voice effortlessly shifts from a sweet falsetto to vicious snarls. It's a thoroughly astonishing demonstration of musical virtuosity and becomes even more impressive with repeated listens, which reveal subtleties like electronica rhythms, eerie keyboards, odd time signatures, and complex syncopations. …
Ott 26 2010, 20:16 di amodelofcontrolThe use of sampling in music has been around for some time now, and at points the use of it has approached levels of extraordinary musicality and ingenuity. At other points, of course, it's been used in obvious, unsubtle ways - and as a result frequently becomes something of a monster hook. And why not? Not all songs require vocals, and sometimes a well-placed sample transforms a track. So, this week, I'm looking at some of my favourite uses of sampling - and I'm looking beyond the rather ubiquitous Full Metal Jacket for these ten!
There is a spotify accompaniment this time, too.
The Number Song
Source: multiple sources
Endtroducing made a good case for sampling as art form upon it's release, and even more staggering is that fifteen years later it's still peerless. It's entire construction is of samples of other artist's work, but what is most remarkable is that from the disparate sources - this track…

When we last left this journal, I was getting out of my 1st year in college. And now, here we are with the promised sequel. Same format, same location....and a lot more adventures.
August-September: Gotta Push It Away/Fresh Starts
Going back to college after a really rough summer somehow felt refreshing. Seeing friends from school was an experience equivalent to a revival service at southern churches, it just felt right. A sudden upswing of good luck had put me in better spirits than before, and I was finally living my life. I got a job at the bookstore, made some new friends, and restarted my music career (more on that later).
I got lucky enough to hear some of the new music coming out at that time period and experience some old gems that I skipped over due to youth/inexperience, so here's a bit of a summary of that time in history:
All Hope Is Gone
Follow The Leader
Steal This Album!
