Yeah! Finally, this list of so-so albums gets time in the limelight.


Most of these are found on youtube. Some can be found on Spotify. I'll get my writeups going sometime later.

I think there are a few albums here that people will enjoy and others that people will absolutely hate, which will be entertaining for me. Very Happy

From the diary:


Le Monde Fabuleux Des Yamasuki by Yamasuki Singers

At first glance this may appear to be an album from Japan, but upon further inspection, one will find that the title is most definitely in French. Before Thomas Bangalter and Guy Manuel would become one of France's best known duo's, Daft Punk, Bangalter's father, Daniel Vangarde, and his own musical compatriot, Jean Kluger, collaborated to create this absolutely bizarre masterpiece. Apparently the majority of this album is complete gibberish, with only a few phrases being close to actual Japanese. This album is chock full of funky early 70's grooves, chiildren's choirs, and a screaming Japanese (?) man.

Here's the full album.

I don't want to shoot my wad too early, but here's the next one.


Mistérios Da Amazônia by Carioca & Devas

If there was a Brazillian album that shreds (that's not Sepultura) then I think this might be it. The whole album is pretty good, but the highlights for sure are track 4 and the epic b side track. It really does make you feel like you've stumbled across some lost Amazonian tribe deep in the jungle. I'm curious as to what the people on this site with more Brazilian album listens think of this one. I quite like it.

Again, here's the full album.

The October Suite by Steve Kuhn

This is an interesting release for the Impulse label, as it doesn't really follow what any of the other artists were doing at the time. This is a trio of Kuhn, Ron Carter, and Marty Morrell that is accompanied by strings and woodwinds composed by Gary McFarland. Despite the kind of cheesy cover, I think this album may surprise a few people. It's not quite what it seems.

You can find the songs individually on youtube, but it's on Spotify, too.

Queueing up about 5 of these (and a handful more in the remaining 90). Hope to get around to all of them before the month is through. I've only heard one album on that entire chart.

I've heard none of these, which is the sexiest pick to start with

Arab On Radar is easily the most sexy. The album is two LPs mashed together; here's the first one...

F*ck it, while I've mentioned it, I might as well talk about it. If you're a fan of Mclusky, Brainiac, U.S. Maple, or any other irreverent and chaotic noise band, then this should be up your alley. If you don't know any of the things that I just said, then you're probably in for a bad time.

I won't give anything else away. Maybe just don't listen to the lyrics. Very Happy

So I've had a few run throughs with the first two now.

I struggle with the Le Monde Fabuleux Des Yamasuki and doubt I'll ever get into it.

However, I've really taken a liking to Mistérios Da Amazônia. Rhythmically interesting, melodically intriguing, and a great joy to listen to, even not knowing Portuguese. It also helps that I'm a big fan of the flute in both popular and folk music. It mixes well with the Amazonian fusion here.
