@TheBrandedSwordsman Paranoid’s just so good though. Definitely my favourite of theirs. That reminds me that I really should pick it up on vinyl!

No, I love early Sabbath, can't go wrong. Masters of Reality is probably my favorite of those you mention, after many listenings to all of them. Of those you listed, Sabbath Bloody Sabbath is probably my least favorite, but it's still good. Also, my favorite singer of all time is Ronnie James Dio, so I love Heaven and Hell and Mob Rules. Heaven and Hell is not only my favorite Sabbath album, but one of my top 5 all-time by anyone.

@LordSteev Thanks for the advice, I might replace Sabbath Bloody Sabbath with a Dio-led album then, even though I love the album cover of SBS!.

@nessisonett I can’t listen to the original version of Paranoid after the cover by The Dickies; the original sounds far too slow!

I actually have this on 7” clear vinyl along with their covers of Banana Splits (yellow) and Nights in White Satin/The Sound of Silence (white)

Here's an interesting cover version of Paranoid from a band I like - they really made it work in their style IMO (although I won't blame anyone for thinking they actually ruined it )

@TheBrandedSwordsman I did!
It wasn't exactly what I expected. Not only is it partially a Coltrane tribute album but also there was way more shredding than I thought there would be
Good stuff but not something I'd listen to a lot to be honest. I really liked some of the organ parts - too bad there wasn't more of that

@Voltan Yeah, it's more of a guitarist's album right? I play guitar, jazz fusion, so that's why that album stood out for me, don't mind doing a bit of jazz fusion shredding on the electric guitar as I'm sure you're not averse to that on the keyboard!

@TheBrandedSwordsman I do like some guitar shredding but I guess I prefer a more modern style of it if that makes sense.

Here's something for you (do listen to more than one song)

If you're sitting in the train right now, listening to the Cuphead soundtrack, please know that I appreciate the soundtrack as well, but I don't need to hear it from the other side of the wagon. :')

@Voltan Ah, thanks, but no need, I've purchased all The Aristocrats works on CD over the years. I was even listening to You Know What..? in the car the other day. I love Guthrie Govan's guitar-work. Got any other recommendations?

Edit: Why won't The Aristocrats release anything on vinyl?!

@TheBrandedSwordsman Ha! Nice
I've seen them live 3 times

I'll think of something in this vein then. Of course Guthrie is excellent on his solo stuff as well as records like Steven Wilson's Hand. Cannot. Erase.

I listened to The Disintegration Loops while doing an online exam. Probably the best music to do work to. Can’t say it’s my favourite avant-garde ambient piece but it’s strangely captivating.

@Voltan That was a truly magnificent guitar solo, I'll have to check out that album, thanks!. Wow! Really? What were they like live? By the way, where do you stand on Led Zeppelin? Note, though, it's important to realise Guthrie considers himself coming from a 'blues-rock' background so the old guard of rock n' roll is still very much present in his playing. Right?

@TheBrandedSwordsman They're pretty much like in their DVDs. Kinda static on stage but clearly having fun with the music. Some parts are always improvised but they understand each other so well you can pretty much never tell, unless they're just doing silly stuff on purpose. Every song is introduced with a short story. It's very much music mostly for musicians (first one time I saw them they actually asked who in the audience was a musician and at least 75% raised their hands) but it's a lot of fun. Great sound every time too. I guess it's easy to sound good when you play this tight.

As for Led Zep - I can't say I like everything they've done but I do like a lot of it and their best stuff is basically godlike.

Not listened to this yet, but thought I share it on here.

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.
Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.

@Voltan Favourite Jazz Fusion Guitarist/Guitar Shredder and relevant recommended albums? (Besides Guthrie of course).

@TheBrandedSwordsman That's a tough question because there's so many to consider but here's a couple names off the top of my head:

The one that probably had the biggest influence on my own playing (and yes, I do mean his guitar influenced my keys) is Paul Gilbert.

As far as guitarist who play both rock and jazz go, I think Andy Timmons is an extremely underrated player.

I'm not sure I'd call either of them my favorite overall but they're the ones I can think of reasons to mention
