Music Artists that you keep meaning to check out?
« on: February 04, 2020, 12:23:34 PM »
Are there any music Acts that you keep meaning to check out...but never get round to? One of the top of my head is Depeche Mode. A lot of my mates were into them back in the 80s, but i found their music quite creepy back then. Im much more open minded to music these days tho.

Prince is another. I have a couple of his albums but not really familliar with much of his back catalogue. Again, i feel i could appreciate him now, more than ever before.

Funnily enough.....i been finding myself curious about them lately too. I know the hits and must say, i do enjoy them. Then a few weeks back, there was a tv show on, with a bit about the Police in it and it left me feeling that i wanted to know more. I dont own any Police albums

Same don't own any albums by them.

Might get round to it one day - dead easy now, just load one from google play to my phone and if i don't like it i can just delete it! But still don't get round to it

One of your favourites James is another one i am in that boat with

I am working through the list of suggestions on my Adore Mofo thread.

I find it oddly tiring and uncomfortable to listen to unfamiliar music. It's a damn shame because I love music. But it's painful somehow to adopt more. Does anyone have this problem? I don't know what it is.

I have this problem with new movies and shows, too. You kind of have to force them on me. I might love them but it's hard.

It's like it's WORK, an EFFORT to hear/see something new. Of course maybe that is because it is literally true, what with my vision and hearing impairments.

But I am trying.

Was a huge fan of The Police back in the day. Still appreciate most of their work after countless listens. Their 5 albums will always remain in my library.

I would suggest going through the albums in order of release. The absolute best is the 2nd, but they're all good.  :D

Nick Cave is the one that comes to mind. Will I ever listen to an album of his? For years, I've meant to explore Mercury Rev as well.

His newest album is absolutely stunning.

You'll struggle to find anything in last few years as absolutely beautiful but as utterly heartbreaking - it is incredible.

Thanks for the recommendation. I will try. Hopefully if a similar thread is started here in 13 years time, I won't say "I must try to listen to that Nick Cave album some time..."

I always thought i could get into Smashing Pumpkins, Depeche Mode, INXS, Arcade Fire, The National and The Cure.
I have a few albums by SP, INXS and DM, but really i should get more.
