Listened through "Raw", the last album of the original ZZ Top band.
It really is as raw as it can get. Very good stuff, if you like that kind of raw blues sound.
Recently, I was suggested listening to Rachmaniov's Symphony Number 2, to better get into "classical orchestral music", as I call it.
I have heard it only once so far (certain kinds of music force the listener to consciously listen to the music), but I found already that it ... kind of sounds like a orchestral movie soundtrack to me. Of course that is no good decription of this kind of work, but solely regarding my own taste of music, I found now why I like this kind of music - especially "soundtrack music" like by John Williams - so much.
I need to listen more often consciously through it, in order to appreciate the composer's work.
The last two afternoon I've spent listening to the best of George Harrison. One of the best writers/performers of my lifetime, I don't believe he ever did a song that I didn't like. Cheer Down never fails to lift my spirits!
I listened to a concert today featuring the Pixies, from a little over a week ago, captured while they were performing at Rockapalast. Still awesome, still relevant, one of the very best bands of all time!
