    I feel like ive become musically stagnant and was wondering what the talkbass guys like to jam to. I was in a metal(core) band so anything thats not that would be cool.

    I've been listening to Jamiroquai pretty steady in the car lately.
  4. Go buy the June 2010 Clapton Crossroads DVD. There is plenty of fresh ideas and genres on there. Also, if you have not heard Gordian Knot, check them out. Maybe Scale The Summit's "The Collective" since it is semi metallic and should have a familiar feel. "Triangulo" by Michel Camillo is amazing, as well as the Michel Petrucciani Trio "Live In Japan" album.
  5. Cake - Fashion Nugget. Some outstanding bass work on the album.
    Victor Damiani knows how to lay it down tastefully!
    Seth Miller likes this.
  6. Faith No More "Angel Dust", Bela Fleck and the Flecktones "Live Art", John McLaughlin "Industrial Zen"

  9. Primus, all day, every day.

    If you're a metal/rock kind of guy i'd suggest Rush, Yes, Jethro Tull, Volbeat, Iron Maiden.

    Listen to them anyway, they're amazing and everyone should be a fan of those bands. :)

    I've been re-listening to Maroon 5 Songs About Jane lately, found it after a few years in hiding, fantastic record.

    I've also been spinning some Jamiorquai, but only Stuart Zender era, Sade's Diamond Life has been in my CD player a while, Type O Negative's World Coming Down and Turbonegro's Scandanavian Leather, and Victor Wooten's A Show of Hands round out the 6 disc changer.

    I've been tearing into some Black Sabbath lately. Ozzy years are my personal favorite, It's just solid playing. It amazes me how locked in that whole band is.

    Incubus, make yourself. Some great bass playing on this. I love this album
  17. Here's a few of my favorite albums:

    Bad Brains- Bad Brains (1982)
    Bad Religion-Suffer
    Rudimentary Peni-Cacophony
    Rudimentary Peni-Death Church
    Streetlight Manifesto-Everything Goes Numb
    Dead Kennedys-Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables
    INDK-Kill Whitey!
    Choking Victim-No Gods, No Managers
    Operation Ivy-Operation Ivy
    NOFX-So Long & Thanks for All The Shoes
    Star F***ing Hipsters-Until We're Dead
    Goober Patrol-Vacation

    Pandora's always fun.
