Woefully ignorant of the works of Lady Gaga, I thought I'd check out her 2008 debut, "Fame", since that's the one Allmusic game a 5-star rating to. 

I'm not enjoying it.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 I hear she is a Bowie fan and got her name from Queen's song. Other than that I am really not interested in her.

I'm currently listening to Radiohead - A Moon Shaped Pool (2016) again. ahdn_george_06

I get the impression that what she got from Bowie was the same thing Prince and others got from him: the idea of the performer with an alter ego, or multiple alter egos. Her music doesn't resemble David's, at least not on the debut. Much of which was indistinct dance-pop, electronics, autotuned, etc. I did kinda like "Pokerface" (which I knew),  "Summerboy" (a surprising guitar rocker) and "Paparazzi", but have no desire to hear the rest again. 

I might listen to her "Born This Way" abum later, just to be conscientious.

I've been listening to Tapestry by Carole King (the album) a lot recently. I'm new to Carole King, but the album is astounding.

The album is absolutely outstanding!!!! I might have to give it another listen later actually...... Every time I listen to it I'm reminded of my friend Jake because he plays it often any time he drives me somewhere when he's home from college (along with the Beatles, of course). But yeah, Carole is an absolute goddess.

Are you just discovering the Velvets, Rita? That's a fine album, a lot of people's (QuarryMan incl) favourite by them. (Not necessarily mine)

I'm playing "Once Upon a Time...", Donna Summer's 1977 double-vinyl concept album "Disco Opera". It's very good - not just thumpthumpthump.

Oui!  I mean I've always known "Pale Blue Eyes" but I recently decided to explore more into their music and so far I quite enjoy it.

Both are essential albums to own in my opinion. I have a love/hate relationship with the Velvet Underground album - I enjoy their debut and this one, but found White Light/White Heat unlistenable after a while, mainly because of 'Sister Ray' I imagine.

Great, hope you find many treasures! 

Reason I asked that is because all four orginal VU albums are quite different in sound. The tenderness and quiet lyricism of that selftitled one came right after the noisy amphetamine-feedback blackBLACK-comedy assault of "White Light/White Heat"; and right before the refreshing straight-ahead (and "Abbey Road "-influenced!) rocking pop of "Loaded", their finale. And so, loving any one of their albums doesn't guarantee loving all of em. As Tony Japanese noted. I love the entire catalog, but probably revere the raw experimentalism of the Cale period a little more. America's greatest band? Possibly.

And I consider "Sister Ray" one of the absolute milestones of pop music history, a total thrill-ride of a performance; and when I'm on my deathbed, with only 17 minutes left to rock, that's what I'm playing. a-hard-days-night-paul-11

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8Summed up the wonder of the Velvets perfectly. Is there any other band who did something completely different with every album and yet pulled it off brilliantly every single time? For me, their first three albums all alternate between my top spot, though the self titled usually edges it for 'Candy Says', 'Pale Blue Eyes' and 'After Hours'. 

I'm currently exploring a little of Alice Coltrane's work through her most played Spotify tracks; I'm on 'Lovely Sky Boat' which is just perfect for a late night library study session, which is what I'm busy with right now.

Haha I almost recommended Alice C to you just a few days ago, then ultimately figured you'd already heard her. (Or would, sooner or later...)

Journey in Sanchi.... actually I'm not even going to attempt to spell it... has been an album I occasionally turn to when I'm in the mood for jazz but want something a bit more psychedelic, but I decided it would be cool to check out some of her other material. "Turiya & Ramakrishna" is one track I've been enjoying lately. 

Currently listening to Alice's less important husband a-hard-days-night-george-10, in what might be my favourite album of his, First Meditations

Wow, I haven't played that one in years! It's historically important as the last time the Quartet recorded together alone - Coltrane added Pharoah and Rashied Ali when he rerecorded this material a few months later as a sextet, and Tyner and Jones left soon afterward. I think the suite is beautiful, a total success, the way the intensity slowly builds track-by-track, then boils over, and finally relaxes. 

It's worth contrasting this recording to both the "Meditations" (for sextet) LP, and to "Sun Ship", recorded a week earlier.
