I can't be bothered to make a new thread for this so here's a general question: what formats do you use to primarily listen to music? Vinyl, CD, tape, FLACs, streaming?

I've been thinking a bit about this after realising that while I have a lot of CDs on my shelves, half the time I'm playing FLAC files and the rest of the time I'm usually playing something off Youtube. I have some nice LPs but with my turntable out of commission at present (no space to set it up) they're not getting much use either.

I still buy CDs, but I haven't actually played one in a decade. I rip everything to FLAC and listen to those when on the computer. When not on my computer, I use my mp3 player (which is 12 or so years old and I seriously need to replace it). Sometimes I use spotify or youtube for researching new albums.

I have iTunes and rip CDs and downloads to that, and keep em in folders on my computer I can transport via USB and such. I also plan to get a thing to play CDs in my apartment so as to justify having them now.

Yeah, similar pattern to myself. I got a 1TB external HD to rip all my albums in FLAC format onto. It's a very boring task though.

A bit of everything, really. At the computer it's streaming and digital files (FLAC, MP3s), sometimes vinyl. In the car I use CDs. When I'm moving around in the house or out it's either podcasts or more digital files. Every once in awhile I'll bust out some cassettes or mini-discs.

Same - iTunes still gets a lot of grief, but it's a very solid, stable program & I like the standard format (album art browsing) rather than an old-school library browser.

I have my turntable & some bluetooth speakers (not the smart kind) in a couple of rooms, so we're pretty much set up for music all over the house. My wife has an ancient Philips portable that does for CD / radio outside.

Thinking of iTunes though - Things That Teach You Patience no.456: People that capitalise 'of' in song titles & submit that to gracenote. Come the revolution, first against the wall....

I guess I just never had any problems with iTunes. I'm pretty low maintenance with music. I used to hear a lot of shit about iTunes but it always did what I wanted, so whatever.

I buy CDs, and I also use youtube a lot when scavenging for new music.
Youtube's recommendations work really well for me. Thanks to that I've been getting heavily into neo-prog lately.

Bandcamp is an honest godsent. Amazing quality streams, low prices, bands get a large share of sales and best of all there's no adverts! I've never used iTunes before and I heard they slowly stripped out or hid features like burning discs. I'm sure it's fine as a service but its never really appealed to me.

Robby Steinhardt, from the band Kansas (the bearded overall violinist) has passed away from pancreatitis. I was never their biggest fan, but I did like some of their music. What amazes me is as I get older, the people I grew up with are passing away. I remember that happening to my Father and really thinking about it. I am getting so old, that the people I grew up with are getting much older than me. They are one by one passing away

I'm surprised how many obscure bands I've discovered via youtube's recommendations (which I probably wouldn't have found otherwise). I just wish there was a way to filter out irrelevant crap that I have zero interest in.

It's just me or the algorhytm behind those recommendations became worse in the last years?
Now when i'm checking out a lesser known album i pretty much only get suggestions for stuff i've already listened or made by very popular bands of that genre. I remember being able to find a bunch of obscure stuff with much less hassle

Same here. Yesterday, I got recommended The Eating Cave's "Sadistic Entanglement", which I thought was gonna be some cool bestial black/war metal judging by the cover, but it turned out to be deathcore!

Not to mention when bands/albums are on it and then disappear from it.

I know it's not primarily a streaming service, but it would be nice to be able to make playlists of the music that you own. That's my only minor criticism. I know one can download them and make playlists with other software.

The search engine is pretty erratic. The first few entries are what I wanted, but the remainder have jack shit to do with what I searched for. I do find some useful stuff via recommended videos, but I do get a lot of crap too. I'm assuming its similar to last.fm where the same videos viewed by certain people may get recommended. At any rate, I still find a few bands that I like via that (enough to validate its usefulness), but I still get enough crap where it becomes quite frustrating.

I hope last.fm doesn't go tits up, its still a useful tool for strip-mining unfamiliar genres/scenes.

In the worthwhile albums thread there is some talk of a new band called Wizardthrone that apparently sounds a lot like Bal-Sagoth. Am I the only one that based on that name alone, would've bet their whole life savings on that they would be an Electric Wizard copy band of the worst kind? But they closely follow Bal-Sagoth instead????

I dunno, but apparently it's another project from that Alestorm guy, and based on how much I hate his other shit I doubt I'd like this either.

The easiest lifehack you can have with Youtube is to make a separate account only for heavymetal. problem with having only one main account that spreads across interests is the recommendations begin to bloat with useless stuff that youtube 'thinks' you might like based on the mishmash of stuff you have watched. My main account is useless for strategic recommendations as my subscriptions go from paleontology, to GtaRP vids, to ancient History, to BMX/skateboarding channels. Youtube gets pretty dumb at that point trying to mix all those together into relevant recommendations.

Just submitted my first review in 14 years, about an album that has bugged me since its release in 2008. Hope I didn't mess it up too much.

If someone tells you “check this out, it sucks,” for something on YouTube, or, if you’re opening one of the embedded videos in the “worst songs you’ve ever heard” thread, always do it in a private tab. One of my friends didn’t understand this, and was foolish enough to look up information about internet subcultures, on YouTube, and ended up getting recommended stuff from “incel TV.” That’s even worse than it recommending me false metal.

Annnnnnnnnd I just found out about a band called Smoking Sabbath and their new album Bongzilla, they're death/groove metal???????? No stoner, sludge, or doom in their genre?

Maybe I should start a symphonic power metal band called Under Transilvanian Hunger. I mean why not?

And now I've got Chapter Five up and running.

At this point, who cares? My competition is a joke. It doesn't matter. I've just gotta write anything. Anything! It's fine! Just write anything! Go go go!

I thought this was interesting. The worlds first 3D printed bridge, has been opened to the public. Located in Amsterdam and weighing in at 4.9 tons.

I mean literally consecutive days. I go to MA and see Mike Howe died. The next day I go on facebook and see Joey Jordison died. The next day i go on facebook and see Dusty Hill died.

Not sure if I mixed that order of Mike and Joey up.

Finally home after a few days near Glastonbury (the town, not the festival, could never afford the festival even if it was running). I met a relic from the New Age Traveller scene of the 70s / 80s, all patch jacket, knackered camper, and heavy tan. Complemented me on my Michael Moorcock book & challenged me on which I'd read :lol: "Michael Moorcock was in Hawkwind, did you know that ?" Glad to see they never die :D (though on reflection, he must have been about 70 and had no teeth, so who knows)

Also came away with some Thin Lizzy LPs, a Fairport LP, a book on obscure saints, some incense, and a strange desire to live in a van and listen to Gong for the rest of my life.

The one thing that puts me off actually doing it is the way that the British government have effectively outlawed nomadic living since the 90s; some of the lawmaking and sneaky behaviour would make the Chinese proud.

Keep paying the mortgage, citizen !

It's against forum rules to necropost right? It seems to be happening a lot lately, I just saw a thread from 2017 on the front page. I understand it if you have an important update or something of substance to add to the disscusion but all the recent replies were like a single line just saying: "Yeah, that sure is a thing." Did I dream this rule up? Is it better to play thread necromancer if you want to add something important or should you just start a new one?

If this was a band line-up, what genre would they play? I think they'd have a pretty interesting sound.

As someone else said, it's really sad to see that so many of these names aren't of particularly venerable musicians. Poor Joey was still in his 40's.

There's an old "favorite choruses" thread I'd have to search for, I don't remember from what year it was, but definitely last decade, that I want to necrobump because I recently found one I wasn't previously familiar with that I am really falling in love with, but due to necrobumping being very frowned upon by the mods (if not against the rules straight up) I don't think I should.

The chorus by the way is Atlantean Kodex - Twelve Stars and an Azure Gown

You can report necro posts. Either we'll lock the thread if it's something pretty inane, or leave it be if there's potential for new discussion.

I'm in late stages of recording/mixing/writing (it's complicated) the album for my non-metal project (roughly prog/post-rock) and I'm at that stage when I'm alternating between "YES, THIS FINALLY SOUNDS GREAT" and "existence is pain please make it stop I'm never doing this again" on an about hourly basis. I think the main lesson from this is that I really, really, really should start making it more structured instead of just randomly jumping between stuff the next time.

If you never hear from me again, it's because I tried to eat my keyboard while EQing the vocals for the 376th time.
