3 months, 30 full days of music, ipod crashes and revelations. It’s over. I’ve now listened to my entire music collection, rated them all and can now sit back and enjoy the spoils (until I get more music). To celebrate my joy of completing this sometimes odious task I shall provide you, my faithful readers, with some excellent music links:
music (ILX) – Not a pretty website but it is full of people dedicated
to the cause of loving music. Excellent discusions on music that is popular
or obscure. The faq
is very useful to get some idea of what all their acronyms stand for.
men in rock – I like this article because it says everything I’d like
to say about Paul McCartney and Sting.
Album Covers Ever – You may have seen this as a word document but someone
has collated it on to a website. I suspect this all started from an I love
– Good site for new indie music. This site causes much ire on ILX but I
find it useful.
2000-2004 Albums – These are the best albums from 2000-2004 as voted
by the ILX readers. I don’t agree with them all, but I love the reviews.
Reading this will keep you busy for days .
most essential pop albums – An excellent way to be reminded of old favourites
that are still brilliant today.
gramaphone music blog – MP3 blogs are a great way to discover new music.
The idea is that they keep the songs on the server for 7 days, you can download
it and listen then buy the album if you like it. Gramaphone is one example,
but if you prefer a specific genre try the blogsearchengine
site or fluxblog.
– I go here to find what lots of aussie people are listening to. Half the
time I don’t even know the songs, which scares me because it means I am
outgrowing my pop roots.
I wear hats now
– He is still alive! LOL.
