Old Friend

I never knew it was System of A Down....

'Toxicity' by System of A Down landed on my desk at work this morning. I'd won it for a few pounds in an ebay auction as I wanted to hear some more of their music after hearing (and rather liking) Chop Suey! repeatedly on various music channels.

Now everyone has left work (I'm doing a bit of a late shift tonight) I've thrown it on the stereo here and, although it's heavier than my usual taste, it is pretty good.

I've also just discovered that they are behind a song I've been dancing to at clubs for the last few years (Forest) which makes things even better.

A quick shout out to clubland types - which band does the metal cover version of either an 80's Simple Minds or INXS song? (I think it's a Simple Minds track?). Purplekaz has certainly told me at least twice but my mind is a sieve and I can't remember who the band is or even what the song title was. I remember I liked it though ;-p

Whilst I'm on music .... recommend me an album

I thought I'd throw this one out to LJLand.

Now my music tastes are vast and wide. My preferred tastes are generally either Trip-hop, Trance/Chill-Out and Industrial but I've got CDs and LPs in my collection which span pretty much every musical genre known to man.

What do you think is a MUST HAVE albumn that I should own, listen to and love.

Post a reply to let me know and I'll try and pick a few of them up and give them a listen. I might even drop a review of them on LJ to let people know what I thought of there choices.

So come on guys and gals..... expand my horizons!
