Listen to the Music

I hope all of you guys had a great Christmas with your family and friends!
I had lots of fun and got to see lots of family, so it was great.

I got some really great Sennheiser headphones for Christmas-- I'm one of those people who has never had a decent pair of headphones. I listen to music on my iPod or computer via Apple earbuds. Sad story, right?

My dad came to the rescue though and got me really nice headphones.

I've been listening to some albums with them and haven't realized how many instruments/vocals I hadn't heard before. It's outrageous all the "little" stuff you can hear with a good pair of headphones!

So my question for you: What albums sound particularly awesome through headphones?

An obvious one is The Dark Side of the Moon. My dad also told me to listen to some Robin Trower and Jeff Beck. What else?

Oh yeah, I'm sure Jeff Beck -- Blow by Blow would sound phenomenal. Led Zeppelin, "When the Levee Breaks" sounds incredible through headphones (the ending with its warping production -- amazing!) and just Led Zeppelin in general, with Jimmy's magnificently intricate production. Oh, and I've also found that the Beatles sound even better on headphones. Enjoy, and by the way, your blog is lovely, xo.

I no longer can listen to music through my headphones anymore due to a medical condition. When I was younger, I used to CRANK Led Zeppelin The Song Remains the Same through my headphones. I felt like was there at the show!

Some great bands to listen to via head phones are, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Grateful Dead(live), Phish(live), and the Allman Brothers.

Frank Zappa-Apostophe, Sheik Yerbouti (well just about ALL Zappa is amazing in headphones)
Radiohead- OK Computer
Dave Brubeck Quartet-At Carnegie Hall
Joni Mitchell- Court and Spark
Norah Jones-Come Away With Me
Pink Floyd -Wish You Were Here
The Beatles-Revolver and Sgt Pepper (really should be vinyl copies)
Peter Gabriel-Security
Steely Dan-Aja

Happy listening.

King Crimson: Larks' Tongues in Aspic
Beck: Sea Change
Pink Floyd: Meddle (Especially "One of These Days" and "Echoes".)
ELP: Tarkus
The Flaming Lips: Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots
Yes: Fragile

The only album I can think of to recommend is Queen's greatest hits volume 1

Yeah, I think Dark Side of the Moon takes the prize on this one. I bet your parents are cool as hell!
