As always, you can listen to as many of these as you have time and energy for - no pressure to get to know all ten well. This discussion also doesn't have to take place in order, because different people will be listening to them at different times.
Drop your musings, analysis, etc. here as the inspiration hits you. And where possible, interact with what other people have been saying for a more interesting discussion.
If you do get a chance to listen to all ten, you can then vote for your favorite in the attached poll.
Last but not least, here are the past threads if you want to go back and listen to / talk about stuff you missed.
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.
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.
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. _________________ The Strange, The Obscure, The Great
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.
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.
