    Threebrain. Highly underappreciated artist, I've been following him for years. Once you get through the crazy stuff, there's some really good music there. He's toured all over the country, and has made a few musical commercials for a convienience store chain on the west coast, as well as a few short commercials on Spike TV. I like his live performances the best, but the site is a bit disorganized and they're somewhat hard to find.

    To date, I have over 60 TD albums. Vinyls, CDs, t-shirts and concert ticket stubs.


    You are not alone.

    but Rockoon ? New TD isn't anywhere near as groundbreaking as the early stuff. My favorites with the likes of Tangram, Ricochet, and Logos is "Is this all one song?!"

    Lets get obscure.
    Dubstar - Stars (Lacuna Coil Cover)
    Beth Orton
    Sinead Lohan
    Luscious Jackson
    Poe
    Tanita Tikaram
    Lori Line

    Or, since of course these are big in other sections of the world, but no one in the US has yet been blessed:
    BOA
    Orbital (Is that the song from Mortal Kombat? hahaha)
    Annie Haslam / Renaissance
    Mike Oldfield (Watch their faces when you play Tubular Bells)
    Finley Quaye
    Matthew Herbert
    Si*Se (who, for being a local band from NY, has NO US coverage whatsoever)
    Olive
    The finer works of Portishead (Who had one song out here, everyone was humming it, no one bought the album (similar to the US downfall of Primitive Radio gods))

    Duncan Shiek ? Roger Waters ? Jon Anderson ? All the guys from King Crimson? Lost on most people's ears.


    But damn... a fellow Tangerine Dreamer !

    I autocross to Green Desert.

    -> Steve

    Edit: Some of my TD faves and their situations:
    Cloudburst Flight (Exit) - Highway speeding
    Tiergarten (Le Parc) - Chilling out (Did you know that VH1 played video on their first day of airing?)
    Marakesh (Optical Race) - Another autocross favorite
    Quichochet II (Tangram) - Playing shooter games at 1:00 am
    Heartbreakers Suite (Heartbreakers soundtrack) - Meditation / daydreaming (I'm listening to it now)

    Long trips with me involve repeat plays of Wavelength, Sorceror, Canyon Dreams, Stratosfear and White Eagle, to name a few. My newest stuff extends to about Melrose, and the last album I bought was the release of 1977's Soundmill Navigator.

    I always get a weird reaction when I'm playing anything from Psychopathic... whether it be:

    "Is that Insane Clown Posse? They suck ass. But... that's pretty fuckin' cool."

    or

    "Who's this?"
    "Twiztid"
    "Damn, they can rap!"
    "No shit."
    "Why aren't they popular?"
    "Cause they don't wanna be, bitch."

    Any Dream Theater gets some weird looks. I like people who don't know about Satriani and Vai and then they say something like, "Hey, where are the words?"

    Nine Inch Nails can usually get a wtf out of people if you aren't playing Pretty Hate Machine or the Downward Spiral.
