Godspeed You Black Emperor - Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas To Heaven
Nothing like chilling out to 20+ minute songs, best Canadian band ever.
Black Uhuru - Shine Eye Gal
I didn't read all the posts but I am wondering if there are still people who use CD players and turntables? Turntables?Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!

Such a great band. You're the first person I've heard of that liked them.
That's one of my favorite albums of all time. Godspeed are a great band for trying to induce Out of Body Experiences too.
I like that album too.
What about those with an extensive collection of vinyl?
Now listening: Carolyn Hillyer - "Cave of Elders: A Soul Journey for Women"
Fantastic album, she uses only her voice, but it sounds like musical instruments.
I've been buying music since 1958. My wife and I still have more on vinyl than CD, although it's getting close. About 2,000 LPs and 1,500 CDs. We've transcribed a lot of our favorite records to cassette tapes, but the technology to go from there to digital media is not mature yet. We've even replaced many of them with CDs.
As for iPods or MP3s or whatever you were referring to, those are for people who do most of their listening away from home and who want to extract individual songs off of albums. We've got 6-foot tall loudspeakers in a room devoted to entertainment, and we want to play our Radiohead CDs and Bryan Ferry LPs all the way through.
In addition, I'm a musician and my friends and I find that CDs and CD players are more convenient for learning songs.
I'm not sorry to see vinyl go, since the sound starts to degrade rather quickly and turntables are a big pain. Cassette tapes aren't much better. I've got CDs that have already failed, so that's not the answer either. Yet as an IT professional I'm not at all impressed with the longevity of digital media. You need to make a backup copy and you need to refresh it every few years, if only because they keep changing the formats and what you store today may not be readable except in a Hollywood studio ten years from now.
