I need a new CD, but I'm totally stuck for choice, so I'd like a couple of recommendations.

I'm into mostly rock stuff (e.g. The Darkness, Foo fighters), I also like Ska and that lot.

The only real thing i don't like is mental screaming stuff like Fear factory or Slipknot, e.g. I want to tell what they are singing.

Any ideas?

Ta.

"It only took a day" and "The canyon behind her" from the second album are good tracks.

Sorry for the late reply, I left here last night when it mucked up, haven't been on today until now.

Afraid I've never even heard of that song - it isn't on either of the two albums or the previous EP they did. Which means one of these things:

1) It isn't Dredg

2) It is Dredg, but been mislabelled

3) It's a song from the new album (not likely, it's miles off yet and there's literally zero information about it anywhere).

> interested.......

They're often described as a cross between Pink Floyd and Tool, which is weird because that's exactly how I described them to someone before I'd heard that description.

Songs you might want to look into: symbol song (plus "movement 1" which follows straight on), yatahaze, lechium, and from the second album same ol' road, woah is me, and...others I can't remember. If you go to the discography section of their official site it'll give you tracklistings for the albums. It's not that easy to remember titles of good songs because the second album is more of a stream of consciousness idea, the theme is sleep paralysis. They're concept albums really, although they work as stand alone material as well.

Also, Amazon have a few thirty second clips if that's your thing.

I'll recommend you The Stone Roses by the Stone Roses.

It'll probably be a lot softer than you're used to, the producer gave it a sixties sound, but that's part of it's charm.

Great music and also the peak of the band that inspired the entire mid-nineties Britpop (Liam Gallagher based his image on the Stone Roses frontman Ian Brown) only the music was a lot better.

Wow. Thanks for the help people.

Oh, and Handy Man, I have the InMe album and it does, indeed, rock like hell. Probably the third best CD I have.

Ta once again.
