16. The Hunting Party
LINKIN PARK THE HUNTING PARTY - CD+DVD-
With no hints to your tastes, here's a quick selection of some of my favorite albums with some basic descriptions. Please let me know if you listen to . like any of them.
Juno - This Is The Way It Goes and Goes
A totally underrated and unheralded Seattle band. Now defunct, they released two albums and a handful of singles, you could call them indie and most closely relate them perhaps to My Bloody Valentine. They create, what my friend called, walls of sound with four guitars all layered together. This is the band I love that no one knows about.
[DJ Shadow - Endtroducing] (http://www.amazon.com/Endtroducing-DJ-Shadow/dp/B000005DQR/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1330569288&amp;sr=8-1)
Essential, this album defined the "trip hop" genre (think rap music without the rap) and is a Guinness world record holder for the first album created entirely from samples.
[Radiohead - Kid A] (http://www.amazon.com/Kid-Radiohead/dp/B00004XONN/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1330569401&amp;sr=8-1)
Cannibal Ox - The Cold Vein
An underlooked "backpack" rap album. CanOx is also now defunct but this album is a spectacular alternative rap album.
Flying Lotus - Cosmogramma
My favorite album of
20112010, Flying Lotus is trippy electronic music, I feel like this album is so next level we won't even appreciate it for a few years.
The Fucking Champs - IV
The band with the awesome name, The Fucking Champs are (mostly) instrumental prog metal with custom made 9 string guitars.
The Hold Steady - Boys and Girls in America
What if Bruce Springsteen made music for late twenty something party kids?
J Dilla - Donuts
Essential. Dilla is the producer's producer, this is a beat tape, 30 some odd snippets of beats and ideas.
LCD Soundsystem - This Is Happening
LCD just broke up but their last album is, imo, their best. Percussion driven indie rock meets techno.
Lil' Wayne - Dedication 2
Say what you want about Lil' Wayne, Dedication 2 is the best thing he's ever done. This Wayne was untouchable.
Madvillain - Madvillainy
A rap album for the heads, this was two super powers coming together and is filled with so much imagination it sell makes my head explode.
Mogwai - Come on Die Young
Post-rock. A powerful moody record.
Say Anything - In Defense of the Genre
Punk is dead but Say Anything's 'In Defense of the Genre' is a spectacular eulogy.
XX - XX
My favorite album of the last ten years. It's dark, sparse, perfect rock.
Sufjan Stevens - Illinoise
A whole album made about Illinois and it works.
Burial - Untrue
Deep dark drum and bass (dubstep, not Skrillex dubstep). When it's late and you're walking the empty streets home a little drunk this is the album you want to listen to.
(edited for slightly better formatting)
This was also the date back catalog transferred to XL is supposed to return online (according to Amazon).
I'm really hoping that it's only physical. The digital re-release of In Rainbows is still May 6th.
Not sure if that maybe has some slight connection to what's happening right now. Here's a link to In Rainbows:

I want some Pokemon cards!!
I have too many CDs.
I would very much love this one if chosen. :)
I know usually everyone picks tropical far away places for dream vacations. I just want to go to Salem MA. My best friend moved there 4-5 years ago and I haven't seen her since. We keep trying to make plans to fly to each other, but something always comes up. So much is happening in her and her daughter's life right now and I hate missing it. We talk on the phone and internet when we can, but she's a single mom and works super long hours at two different jobs so normally we get 5 minutes on her walk to work. Boo.. We'll get together one of these days. My fiance actually mentioned that maybe next summer we could take a trip and either meet her somewhere she could get to or go to Boston and spend time with her too. :)
Thanks for the contest! <3 Airplane!

Thank you for the contest!
If you don't have it, you need the album Heartthrob by Tegan and Sara. Beautiful music? Pretty twin ladies? Fun pop style? I just love them so much.
And I don't mind if I win or not, I just really love sharing this album. Here's a music video to preview their style if you haven't heard them before!
Edit: AND CONGRATULATIONS! I know I said so on IRC already but you are a strong lady whom I admire greatly for doing what you've done. I can barely function with my one niece here, and I get to give her back when I'm done playing!
Thanks for the contest!
Happy music anniversary, kalanz!
I have one album.
[This!] ( http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0092MKFIY/ref=aw_ls__5?colid=1FL87GYMF6KEO&amp;coliid=I1X25K7OD51PRL)
Thanks for the contest!
I really want Tegan and Sara
I've just now discovered this song, and it's not half bad.
I have a pattern for unusual music choices, but I find they are some times the best treasures.
I'm sure I can dig up more, but that should be a good start. :)
How are you tonight? And why specifically Richmond? I love this song, ever since I heard it
I love music.
I'm eating leftover Chinese food. That's something.
Room without a roof
If you are working with a Mac, I envy you. A lot. (Not really :3)
Hmm... How about this album?
Favorite dessert... I really like things with pastry cream or custard. Creme brulee, flan, cheesecake, Boston cream pie, etc.
Cheesecake all day everyday!
Happy cake day :D
You should get this because Imagine Dragons are amazing!
An I would really like this so I can highlight all my lovely textbooks.
You had a donut for breakfast!
He's so cute! How about Oscar?
Should default to the mp3 version.
Well, There is actually a difference, What I have is ripped from an Audio CD and the Deluxe one you were talking about was probably ripped from a .mp3 file or from streaming. So there is a slight difference.
YES HE DOES.
...I love him so much.
He has a CD, too. Just saaaayyyinnggg xD
Just bought it, 8.72 MB -- Bit rate: 269 kbps
