god i wrote that post about an hour ago but then the internet went down for as long. i also meant to write that i'm interested in doing each and every artist on that list. it's just that with some of the lower ranking ones i've either done them recently (i.e. the cure) or in the case of classical artists i really don't have any framework for working through a composers body of work because of how different discographies are for composers than jazz or pop artists. i will probably write about my experiences with them in the thread in the vein of similar threads by sordid affair/svc/merciel.

i did the whole sparks discography a few years ago and yeah that was tons of fun. would like to do it again sometime.

i like most of the muslimgauze i've heard but don't really have any sortof understanding of his discography. definitely interested in doing that sometime

probably similarly to what i said i would do for joni mitchell i.e. listen to the studio albums from the 1960s and 1970s and then throw in the most popular live albums from that time period. probably at least going to do the live/dead album and the valentines day 1970 show that was released at dicks picks vol. 4.

i might just do a live show of each year of the grateful deads existence up until say 1977 or so, come to think of it. one of the appeals of like, listening to every gucci mane or lil b mixtape one by one is due to the frequency of material recorded it all manages to like, provide a pretty intimate, diaristic snapshot of how someones brain was working over a period of time. and like, getting that close to someones creative process is a pretty unique feeling that's really rewarding to this style of media consumption. anyway yeah i think, as i understand it, that's fairly analogous as to what people who are really into jam bands get out of listening to a lot of live material that's all variations on the same couple of songs.

surprised no one has mentioned springsteen. i've never listened to anything past born in the usa. that's another thing to throw on the backburner i guess.

I did the Beastie Boys a few weeks ago and that was a lot of fun. I was surprised at how much I liked To the Five Boroughs.

it was honestly tasking myself with listening to every gucci mane mixtape that made this style of listening click with me, for the reasons i mentioned. it just made me realize how much of a fun, active experience it can be. being in a long term relationship with someone that's perfectly willing to also undertake shit like listening to every pink floyd album, including the godawful roger waters solo albums that are basically jordan peterson ranting over eric clapton guitar about how he wants to cheat on his wife and how tv rots your brain. while like, talking about our thoughts about what's going on doesn't hurt either.

edit: (probably should have put something here about how mark prindle's criticism was some of the first music writing i ever actually took to and that helps. and the friend i mentioned in the op does this pretty regularly too. i remember she did the complete ac/dc discography in a day which sounds like complete torture but is still something i'm in awe of to this day.)

i think the sven vath thing was probably a joke but i'm literally not above listening to a random trance producer i'm unfamiliar with's discography. or dream theater, like i mentioned.

i missed this. i ahven't listened to all of his but i actually like his industrial rock output from the 90s/00s quite a bit iirc.... it's possible i either have a higher tolerance for that than you (i have a higher tolerance for industrial rock than like 95% of this board, probably) or there are parts of his discography that i'm missing.


Yeah I do not care for his industrial rock stuff, but also his late eighties stuff like Berzerker is so mediocre.
Then there's this famous mistake:

Also worth noting that Numan was my favorite artist when I was 17 or so, but only the stuff up through Telekon. So I have a higher than average opinion of that stuff.

there's a ton of like. 80s industrial bands with giant discographies that i've heard bits of scattered throughout time but still seem to have stayed pretty consistent over the years. thinking tom ellard/severed heads, esplendor geometrico, controlled bleeding . . .

For the Dead I'd still recommend the studio albums, just with a few of the canonical live and solo records mixed in chronologically:

Live/Dead (after Aocomoxoa)
Dick's Picks 8, Garcia, Ace, Sunshine Daydream 8/27/72 (after American Beauty - they wrote a ton of material between AB and Wake of the Flood that never made it to a proper studio album, if you have to pick one then do Sunshine Daydream, it's a legit contender for Best Dead Show)
One from the Vault (after Mars Hotel)
Cornell 5/8/77 (after Terrapin)
Reckoning (after Go to Heaven)
Without a Net & Wake Up to Find Out (after Built to Last)
