    That Mr. Bungle album may be the weirdest one chosen thus far, and I'm listening to the Les Claypool album right now.

    Alright, that's enough of the Les Claypool album for the rest of my life.

    It's a nice reprieve to go back and listen to this John Prine album again.

    There's really not much country on the list at all.

    John Prine definitely has some twang, but he falls under the folk/Americana umbrella more than country.

    If it doesn't have clean vocals, I would expect a very negative reaction

    Have you ever listened to the late great Steve Goodman? He’s on many of Prine’s early albums(other guy singing on “Souvenirs”)

    I dont mind negative reactions...

    But if people are going to get banned for metal then that should probably be in the op. Its a pretty big bitch move to do that even. But its shawn so im sure he did more than just suggest something people didnt like.

    He's not really banned, but he made some horrendous choices the last time we did this.

    Johnny Cash was too much of a pussy to sing John Prine lyrics as written when covering one of his songs out of fear of pissing off his fanbase...if that better explains how he isn’t by any means country

    I don’t typically listen to weird music, just the Claypool stuff. I’m a sucker for anything Les. He’s eccentric, original, and a hell of a bass player. His voice is definitely a love or hate thing and I understand most everyone is going to be turned off by it.

    I mean the Necrophagist album is good but it's not really something I would share with non-metal people

    Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored water on the other hand is essential listening

    But really it’s probably one of his more gospel-y albums...not necessarily indicative of his other work...his first, eponymous album is what you should really listen to if you’ve never listened to him

    I hate the folk style of music. If you don't sit there and hang on every word it's useless. Not great background music

    Listen to John Prine - John Prine instead...more of a classic rock sound

    I think I heard him say "fuck" one time so that's certainly different than most 70s country/folk records

    Um...have we singlehandedly fucked up Amazon Music's "popularity" algorithm? Every one of the songs on the Four Foot Shack album has a high popularity rating and that feels absolutely impossible in real life context.

    Sure, and I'm sure plenty are using Apple Music and even more are probably using Spotify.

    I can't find any explanation of what Amazon uses in their Popularity algorithm, but I feel like it has to somehow be based regular/expecting listening volume vs current listening volume.

    Les Claypool album wasn’t for me even though I recognized 2/3 of the songs. Whatevs, I wouldn’t listen to that normally and I don’t understand why someone puts that on to jam to but again...whatevs

    Will listen to John Prine tomorrow

    i tried looking up the lore of the past topics, esp shawn's "christian metal" pick that you guys keep talking about, but the only album i could find of his that got picked was the mono/world's end girlfriend collaboration which is like anti-metal

    Its certainly somewhere in the post-metal/post-rock area. It seems pretty tame tbh.

    Definitely is tame when compared to one of my picks.
