BOC is an absolute bomb, especially of the Mirrors - Imaginos period. My favorite band right now. Peak arena rock.

I used to play Sgt. Pepper over and over when I was younger. It's a solid album.
Homestuck Vol. 7 is pretty great too, had a nice atmosphere to it.

I also used to play it on repeat a lot! and any album that you can play over and over again is an amazing album.

great athmosphere indeed, there is some INTENSE electronic music there
intensity


you should try Bryan Scary and the Shredding Tears, YingLung
they are scary good

someone has described their music as "It's like Zappa and Queen [had intercourse with] Elton John and ELO."

yeah
almost everyone would like some portion of ween's stuff
they really have "a little something for everyone"
although liking the entire ween collection is a bit hard, considering that it has songs that were pretty much deliberately made to annoy people and drill their heads with **** sound and other niche stuff

Mollusk is very good all around though

i would recommend quebec in particular to anyone

although my favourite albums are the trio of Godweensatan/The Pod/Pure Guava which are definitely more of an acquired taste

I enjoy listening to BOC a lot too. They're kinda cheesy, but it's the kind of cheesy that I have a soft spot for, and I like the way they're able to convey atmospheric horror, more Edgar Alan Poe uncanny valley of the banal than outright terror. I mostly prefer their earlier, bluesier albums to their later, more metal work.

Oh yeah, and they have another album coming out this October!

These people are currently my favorite band! They have everything I want from classic rock. I'm personally much more into late BOC; I find the AOR style much more driving than rock-n-roll and jazz that they were doing in earlier albums, and I prefer clear stories in the lyrics (which are absolutely amazing in Fire and Cultosaurus and, surprisingly, Club Ninja) to atmospheric poetry that is so abstract that it often doesn't make any sense at all.
That said, I've listened to all of their albums, and most of them were very enjoyable.

I don't really find most of their songs cheesy though. Maybe I'm too used to grotesque and weird and semi-serious stories. I mean, sometimes they are doing intentionally silly phrases like "it's a flaming wonder telepath!" of exaggerations like "six million albums to his credit in just two short years" or stories about comedy movie actors rising from their graves and haunting their daughters. But damn me, I can take Homestuck seriously and I listen to stuff like Gloryhammer! BOC level of silliness barely registers for me after that :V

Gloryhammer, now that is a cheesy band. In the best of ways.

Out of curiosity, have you ever listened to Curse of the Hidden Mirror? It's their most recently released album (2001), but it has some songs that are more reminiscent of their earlier style (e.g. Dance on Stilts, Stone of Love)

I did! It was neat but rather forgettable, better than Heaven Forbid though.

I enjoyed it a lot. Personal taste, I guess.

The album is a lost art. I got Spotify a couple months ago and hadn't really listened to any albums before then.
I did recognize 7/16 of the bands in the original post though! Although getting there required counting Blue Oyster Cult twice.

I much prefer listening to whole albums to listening to just singles. The context of a song really changes how it feels to listen to it. It can be something complicated like recurring thematic elements, or something as simple as how the style and tone of the previous song make you feel going into it.

imo songs are supposed to be listened to in album form unless youre listening to pop where theyre explicitly designed to be short catchy singles

youre not getting the full context of a particular piece and as a result cant fully appreciate it in relation to the composition or placement of other songs on an album

to me its like going to an art gallery, viewing one painting for about 30 seconds then driving to the next gallery to look at another piece for 30 seconds
