My Top Ten Albums for Chris Brooks

Chris Brooks chastised me for not knowing who "Brian Wilson" is or why "Good Vibrations" is supposedly the greatest song in the world. Of course, I didn't mention that Tenacious D was the greatest band and had the greatest song, but that's another story.

Here's my list of great songs and albums, for me, for the last five years, so that Chris might expand his collection. Yes, this is not a technical post, so feel free to delete and move along. Nothing to see here.

This can't be true.. Another NERD who loves Soul/R&B/Hip-Hop. Nice list!

But Tenacious D doesn't have the best song, theirs is just a tribute!

All I want to know is, why does Scott Hanselman hate black people so much?

Rhetorically speaking of course.. ;)

Thank you Dave. What is your style?

I have not heard of Youssou, Khaled, Amel Larrieux but based on the complete list I will purchase them soon.

Being originally from the UK I really appreciate the inclusion of Floetry.

'The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill' and 'Who is Jill Scott' this blog could begin and end right here for me.

Great list!

Hey Scott,
Here are a few suggestions to tickle your neo soul fancy:
Javier (album: Javier) neo soul with heavy spanish guitar influence
Heather Headley (album: This Is Who I Am) she is just totally kick ass. Tracks to download: Sista Girl and He Is
Donnie (album: Colored Section) My fav track on this album is "Welcome to the Colored Section"
Les Nubians (album: One Step Forward) two soul singers singing in French - what's not to like?
Erykah Badu's new album Mama's Gun is my new favorite Badu album. Jill Scott's Beautiful Sounds album is worth about a million listens. Mos Def's new album The New Danger is just as good as Black on Both Sides.
By the way, I saw John Legend at the Roseland in September - he is incredible live.

What? And open myself up to ridicule and scorn? ;-) I have to say I'm proud to have successfully trolled with a one-word post.

JK, my own tastes are:
Miles Davis
Medeski Martin & Wood
bluegrass (Dillards, Bill Monroe, Old & In the Way, Doc Watson)
some (c)rap (Beastie Boys, eg.)
Charlie Hunter
Coldplay
Dave Matthews (earlier stuff)
Galactic
Phish
Allman Bros.
Govt Mule
Robert Walter's 20th Congress

(shields up)

BTW - *really* looking forward to the podcast.
