When I first heard Cigaro I listened to it like 180 times in one day. Same with Sugar and well, pretty much every album by System of a Down.

Yesterday I was listening Mesmerize and I thought it was quite good. I couldn't listen it till the end (didn't have the time), but I really liked what I heard so far.

Let's see, where to start....
My biggest obsession to date has probably been Frank Zappa. He had a huge discography and it wasn't the kind that dwindled in quality 10 years into his career (although the 80's, while not terrible, i consider dispensible minus a few works). ANYway, i went for about a year listening to at least one album of his a day, but those days have passed.
On a smaller scale, last month i listened to Daft Punk's "Discovery" incessantly. It was a great album to listen to while 'under the influence'. The last side of the "Second's Out" by Genesis was also good in those circumstances.
I have a long-running interest in 60's psychedelia/garage rock/avant garde and am always looking for interesting stuff from that era (and i'm still surprised by stuff i unearth).
I became obsessed with Brian Wilson's "SMiLE" just before the re-recording came out and spent a week looking for any recorded work from those sessions and piecing it together as best i could.

And basically, i'm just obsessed with owning as much music as i possibly can.

Yesterday Rules and ...And the Women Who Love Them by the Mr. T Experience. When you're compulsively depressed about girls, there's just no substitute.

Original Pirate Material by the Streets and the Rushmore soundtrack (mostly the Cat Stevens tracks) have been popping up a lot lately too.

Indeed. It was the equivalent of someone suddenly decided to throw their two cents into a discussion, and having everyone in the room turn and stare at them silently until they leave.

Also, I am currently digging Pelican's new one "The Fire In Our Throats Will Beckon The Thaw". It's like what Mogwai would sound like if they listened to more Black Sabbath, and weren't boring.

Oddly enough, my current fix is "Dark Days" by Coal Chamber. Yes, even I can see that its cheesy, cliched nu-metal angst, but damnit they know what I like done with guitars.

I'm gonna mention Regurgitator, because I managed to be obsessed with all of their albums simultaneously a short while back. Then I had to get rid of them so I could reclaim the 300 meg hard drive space. Sigh.

If any non-Aussie here has even heard of them, they get a cookie.

I have, but only because you mentioned them in a previous IM conversation.

I am currently totally all up on DFA Compilation #2. The Rapture, Black Dice, J.O.Y. and The Juan McLean are standouts that I reccommend. Or for that matter, the three disc compilation isn't that expensive, so I just plain reccommend the whole darn thing!

Oh, and also Saftey Second, Body Last by the Locust.

Right now I'm really into The Arcade Fire's album "Funeral". pinch.gif
