Excellent stuff =)

My favorites are:

Pruit Igoe from Koyaanisqatsi. I was stoked when I realized it was included on the soundtrack to Watchmen. It introduced it to a whole new generation.

Akhnaten, pretty much the whole thing, but for brevity sake I'll just pick one song, The Window of Appearances.

Symphony 3 Movement 4, + here's a great live version of movements 3 and 4. Movement 4 starts at about 11:10.

you sir are a legend, you are only the third person i know of who has heard of TSO, who hasnt had me introduce them to the band.


anyway i was listening to Paul Oakenfold Goa mix 1994, which is pretty full on dance mixed with dialog from blade runner, why ?i hear you ask, well Harrison ford is going to reprise his Dekard role in the sequel and that made me think about the Goa sessions and Vangelis
Vangelis then lead me to Jon Anderson (not to be confused with John Anderson of country music fame or the footballer from Ireland) Jon Leads me Yes and then ELP and Tangerine Dream, who did an alternate score for the movie Legend, which also had the lyrics recorded by non other than Jon Anderson, but also lyrics for another song by Brian ferry and Guitar by Dave Gilmour of Pink Floyd,which lead me on to listening to Division bell.

Make that 4, my friend. Toronto has (seemingly) always been a stop on their tour route, though I have yet to make it out to see them live.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Do see them live if you get the chance. I have been to three of their concerts and they rank as some of the top live events I have been to.

WOW, i have doubled the number of people i know who are in the know about TSO! in less than a day!

Huh. I started a reply to this thread, but it looks like I never posted it.

TSO is pretty big here. They play the arenas here in Philadelphia. My aunt (in her 50's) and uncle went the last time TSO were in town.

I liked Savatage too, but the vocals could be kind of hokey.

As symphonic metal goes I generally prefer Therion's album Secret of the Runes. But they're targeted at very different audiences.

4) Imagine Dragons - Popular band right now, but I like the sound
5) Caravan Palace - not sure why I got hooked into electro-swing, but few groups do it as well as this one
Dream Theater and Infected Mushroom are great fun. Caravan Palace has really been captivating me too, recently. I was under-impressed by Imagine Dragons' other stuff besides "Radioactive," though, honestly. It didn't really stand out to me (though that's just me--love them all you want for yourself, of course!).

Simon & Garfunkel - just an awesome sound
Chick Corea - well really jazz in general, but he's my current favorite
Pink Floyd and Simon & Garfunkel are really quite excellent--classics for the ages. I've been into Alexi Murdoch myself, recently. I and everyone I know who's heard him ran across him because of Pandora, it seems...

*ahem* my choices:

- The Mountain Goats: A singer/songwriter with few peers in terms of the excellence of his work, though it can be a bit of an acquired taste.
- Modest Mouse: Cynical and bitter alt rock heroes.
- Tom Waits: The one, the classic, the unmistakable. Named my CSM warband after one of his albums.
- Godspeed You! Black Emperor: Post-rock kings, long may they reign.
- The Glitch Mob: Talk about "pulse-pounding." Music to watch things explode to.

Had too cull altogether too many favorite bands from that list to feel comfortable with it (Sufjan Stevens, Metric, Anas Mitchell... to name a few of the most difficult to cut)

CSM Plog, Tactica

What sphinx of plascrete and adamantium bashed open their skulls and ate up their brains and imagination? Imperator! Imperator!

Man, I knew there was a reason I liked you. Other than the good attitude and cool models/tacticas.

Godspeed You! Black Emperor
And the Glitch Mob

Fuckin'A =)
