suddenly, after not hearing it since the early 60s, i remembered a good album i used to like a lot: The Fendermen - Mule Skinner Blues; a spoof of the original song.

am listening to it now.

i would expect the old farts here to remember it.
who does?

One of the most well produced EDM tracks I've ever heard in my life. This song has actually sparked discussion on the music production software forum with people asking how he got so many layers of sound to sit in the mix not competing with each other.*

*The consensus was that trick was not performed in mixing or mastering, but just really good sound design from scratch.

I'm usually not a big fan of the style, but this track really shines. It reminds me a lot (minus the vocals) of the soundtracks that often accompany/ied demos written for the demoscene.

I actually got my start making music with trackers (the software that was usually used to make the tunes to accompany demos). So it's no wonder I like stuff made today in the same style.

Particularly enjoyed the last 30 minutes or so(forward to about 35 minutes)of the SymphonyCast program with the Cleveland Orchestra. Great performances of Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries and music from Mussorgsky's Boris Godunov available here .

Anyone listened to the soundtrack from the new Girl with the Dragon Tattoo yet? I was intrigued as soon as I saw Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross's names on it.

Then I heard a reviewer bash it for having 39 tracks but only two with vocals, thus being boring. Then I heard the immediate rebuttal from his on air partner who alleged that he was being close minded. I thought his comment was very interesting. I can't recall exactly but it went something like this.

"Reznor and Atticus have really accomplished something here. They have infused their dark, industrial sound into something that returns music to the 18th century where every song told a story without words. Discounting the two songs with vocals, which I like also, it is a symphony for the new world man."

I'm not sure if the Rush reference was intentional.

I've been listening to the samples on Amazon and I tend to agree with the latter. However, I reserve judgement until the CD arrives to say if it can hold my interest. Although this is very different, Reznor's last experiment with sound, "Ghosts", had some brilliant ideas in stretching musical concepts, but it isn't something you can listen to from start to finish. Well, it's possible, maybe, with some product from Medic8r.

Murph, I really enjoyed the soundtrack for that movie. Have wondered what the full version would be like.
