    If you like house/trance you can't go wrong with the "Global Underground" series featuring top DJ's playing live in diff. venues around the world. I think they're up to about Vol. 18 (?) now:cool: . For slightly harder tunes try React or Perfecto lables stuff too.

    Can't keep up with all this new stuff. For pure class try Led Zeppelin Remasters double CD, Deep Purple Live in Japan, Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon. That sort of music lasts forever. Most new stuff I've got into is great but only for a while.

    Can't believe I forgot to put that in my list, probably the best of all the albums mentioned in this entire thread!

    Also strongly advise getting hold of JA's 'Nothing Shocking'. Listening to those two albums one after another is truly a unique, immersive and sublime audio experience :)

    Have to agree with Jane's Addiction too - also check out the red hot chillie peppers 'Californication'
    I personally could not live without Adrian Legg's 'Guitar for Mortals' CD - it is simply awe inspiring.

    If you like, funked up house, raw analogue bass, clinical production & synth soaked stabs.............................................. give Felix & Simon a.k.a Basement Jaxx a try.

    Albums = Remedy & Rooty.

    Incredibly under-rated & very unique.

    Not so sure about that. I bought Remedy and was massively disappointed, the only decent track is 'Always Be There' or something.

    Surely Cassius are far better than Basement Jaxx out of those 'funky' chart dance acts?

    It certainly looks like English, but I didn't understand a word.

    Juboy..
    Cassius?.....typical French disco house (although very groovy)

    However, Basement Jaxx have their own style.
    Their tunes are busy, involved & very funky crossing many genres.
    The production is clinical & they have terrific melody's with some weird & wonderful vocal stabs..
    Basically, i think they stick their fingers up @ the bog standard
    4x4 house tunes......
    Have you tried Rooty?....

    They are one of the only artists i will buy without hearing.
    I love their funked up style...........& their rowdy party vibe.
    They must spend a while tweaking with their synths

    Just my view of course

    Excellent album. And if you like that, Keith Caputo's solo effort 'Died Laughing' is a MUST have album.

    In fact, I should have put that on my list. If you like singers and proper songs, Caputo's album is genius. It's also excellently recorded and produced... shows off a good hi fi very nicely.

    Bought it the first day it was released and still listening to it. Is genius. Getting a pee'd off with the delay of any new material though, along with the constant rumours and hints that Life Of Agony might be getting back together.
