Re: Recommend people a film, TV show, book, videogame, based on their favorite album

For fans of Turn on the Bright Lights, I'd recommend Darren Aronofsky's Pi or James Ward Byrkit's Coherence.

If my favorite album were Joni Mitchell's Blue, what would people recommend?

Re: For aspiring musicians (producers and artists), what is the biggest issue you face when trying to create song?

Finishing a song. It's very easy for me to come up with chord progressions/melodies/lyrical ideas, but the act of taking that piece and expanding it into a full song is something I really have to force myself to do.

I will definitely rearrange and expand this before the deadline, but here is my initial list. 5 | Weezer | Weezer I'd wager you mean The Blue Album here, but it might help to be specific with a band with four self-titled albums, particularly since I'd imagine the others will pop up on lists as well.

One thing that might cause controversy is an album that has very little acclaim and/or is considered bad by many. Since the name of the game is "moderately acclaimed". But maybe I'm too much caught up on semantics. The 2015 thing that Jirin suggested is a loophole that would certainly cau...
