From the latest Computer Audiophile blog entry below. The what hifi list did come across, to me, as a list to impress rather than a list to listen to. Anyway, recommending music is a pointless exercise. Where was the thrash metal or dubstep or many of the other genres that cannot possibly be included in such a small sample. Expand the list to five hundred or so and it might be useful. Saying if you do or don’t have these albums means anything about you or your musical tastes is meaningless.
Having said all of that I like lists of music I haven’t heard of and will go listen to the many on this list I don’t know.
As for Mogwai, Young Team is obviously the place to be
“However, for much of the conversation we all talked about music. And here’s the disconnect, nobody talked about Diana Krall, Rebecca Pidgeon, or the latest quad DSD or 24/384 recording of a guy beating tree trunks with Japanese urushi drumsticks. If you like that stuff, I’m very happy for you because you’ll be in heaven at a HiFi show. We all talked about music made by the likes of David Bowie, Bruce Springsteen, Blind faith, Radiohead, Led Zeppelin, Pearl Jam, and Prince. I have to ask, why is it that none of these artists graced a single playlist in any of the rooms in which I visited?”
