Nader Bouberhan and His Albums of Life

So this is a window into the existence that is Nader Bouberhan. I hope that it will give some people a closer glimpse into who I am. Also, I hope you like Solo Bass Guitarists.
I honestly could not pick a single album for some years, so here is a sloppy and choppy list of things created by Moi.

Tie: REM Green and Radio Free Albumuth by Stuart Hamm 1988
Flow my Tears the Policeman Said by Stu Hamm



The Offspring 1989
“Jennifer Lost the War.” YES


Judas Priest Painkiller 1990
Painkiller

Pearl Jam Ten 1991
Black = You could pick any song off of this album. Great Stuff=


Iced Earth Night of the Stormrider 1992
Night of the Stormrider


Tool Undertow 1993
Piano Cover Sober


Running Wild Black Hand Inn 1994
Black Hand Inn

Gamma Ray Land of the Free 1995
Rebellion in Dreamland

In High School Gamma Ray was my Band. They were mine.

Victor Wooten A show of Hands 1996
Me and my Bass Guitar

Gamma Ray Somewhere out in Space 1997
Valley of the Kings


1998-1999
I don’t have a favorite.

Nevermore Dead Heart in a Dead World 2000
Dead Heart in a Dead World

Runner up : Dahmer by Macabre

Tool Lateralus 2001
Schism

Nirvana Nirvana 2002
Runner Up : Lacuna Coil Comalies
Swamped
Nirvana was the king with their new track for the year, and even though it was a comp disk, it still owned. However, Lacuna Coil opened my ears to the wonder that is Gothic Metal.

2003-2005
Death Metal with Clean Lyrics

Shahrizoda Oynusan 2006
Oynusan
This is technically a DVD, but this introduced me to Uighur Pop. Hearts.


Tay Zonday 2007
This again isn’t an album, but have to pick Tay for his videos on the tube, and I am not just talking about Chocolate Rain. He has many other great songs, but I will post Chocolate Rain just for kicks.


Jean Baudin Solace 2008
I will stop here because after 2008 I am just a mess with things, and by this point I was out of albums. I started using youtube for all of my musical interests, so it became more about videos than albums.

Transcend

And if I pick two more albums = These are from 2007 and 2008, but I have to include them.
EriK Mongrain
Fates
And
Equilibrium
These are truly great albums, if you are into solo guitarists.

The Silent Fool


Mentionables: Anything by Napalm Death,
Davis Gaines, Across the Tides “My Fav Phantom.”
Screaming Trees: Sweet Oblivion (Would have made the list, but it had only two songs.)

As you see I do not have a fav for every single year, but this is me.

I have listed Tay Zonday and Gamma Ray both as my favorites.
Gamma Ray was then.
Chocolate Rain is now.

QATFYG: Can somebody pick two albums for me, 2009 and 2010?

3 New Lana Songs Come Out From Upcoming Album "Blue Banisters"

Not even that far off from "Chemtrails Over The Country Club" being released this past March, Lana Del Rey dropped three new singles off her upcoming project, "Blue Banisters." They include the title track, "Text Book," and "Wildflower Wildfire." All three songs seem to merge the worlds of "COCC" with "Norman Fucking Rockwell," specifically Lana's mouthful of a track "Hope is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me To Have But I Have It." They also seem uncharacteristically more confessional than most of Lana's catalog to date, specifically "Wildflower Wildfire," which alludes to a conflict with her mother. She even starts the track with "Here's the deal," readying to show more of her backstory than she ever has in her decade-plus-long career. The three songs are gorgeous - especially "Text Book," which has a haunting quality to it (she mentions "Black Lives Matter" i

Tusse releases French Language Version of "Voices"

In case you missed Eurovision this past weekend - and if you're an American, you likely did - there were some truly talented acts among those competing for this year's prestigious title. There were some pretty boring acts, and there were only a few of truly strange contestants this time around (bummer).  Sweden's act Tusse was pretty talented; his joyful and uplifting track "Voices" was actually one of the few that seemed rather memorable to me. Turns out he's releasing it in French - which makes sense, as Tusse is Kongo-Kinshasa born. Tusse is enormously popular in Sweden from what I can tell, having won both Melodifestivalen (Sweden's precursor to Eurovision) and Swedish Idol. He's a talented guy, and I'm sure we're just seeing the start of what is bound to be a long and prolific career.   (you might not be able to watch this outside of Sweden so, see below) The French version of "Voices" is available for streaming here .  Also, whi

"Round the Bend" - Zoon (Beck cover)

My favorite album of Beck's has long been "Sea Change," for approximately the 20 or so years it's been out. I would probably regard it as one of my personal favorite records, for its wistfulness and its beauty. When I heard about Zoon (aka Zoongide’ewin) - the musical project of Daniel Monkman - covering the "Sea Change" track "Round the Bend," I was somewhat skeptical simply because the album holds such a place in my heart. Now, prior to hearing about this cover, I wasn't so familiar with the work of Zoon. And now, I've got to say, in my best Owen Wilson - Wow.  Apparently we both hold the 2003 Beck album in high esteem. Said Daniel about "Sea Change," "After my first listen I was so moved and at the time I was going through a pretty bad break up and this album helped me process my depression. Throughout my time away from music I’d always have a copy beside me; it kept inspiring me that I could try any kind of music style. I
