    My personal favorite band, who many here are probably aware due to my constant ranting/fanboyism is Radiohead. They wrote one of the most beautiful and sad songs I have ever heard called I Will.
    Which is by no coincidence off of my favorite album by them, which is found in my user title.

    Other favorites of mine are Beck who can amazingly take any 2+ genres of music and make seemless transitions from one to the other in his songs.
    This one combines folk and hip hop, and even has an 8 bit music section in it.
    Beck - Novacane
    his lyrics are also completely random, but they fit together and rhyme perfectly. it's like a whole new approach to songwriting. :lol:

    My third band, whom is criticized by many people on this website, is The White Stripes. They have 2 members and record in a style that sounds extremely rugged and old school. Produce a really "raw" sound these guys.
    White Stripes - Blue Orchid
    and they also write more bluesy acoustic songs.
    White Stripes - Effect and Cause

    I have many other bands I like, Led Zeppelin being one of them. I'll save this post from being longer than it already is with those 3 being said.

    Being an audiophile, I myself cannot survive without music (well, not easily anyway). I listen to pretty much everything with the exception of Disney's teen Pop, Post-90s Mainstream, and Country (not including Bluegrass). Though I listen to just about everything, I'm mostly fond of the different sub-genres of Electronic music; Downtempo, Progressive trance, Left field, Minimal, Drum & Bass, Ambient, Dark Ambient, Lo-Fi, Glitch, 8-bit, 16-bit, Breakbeat, Disco & Nu-Disco, Post-Rock, Retro Lounge, Synthpop, Electronica, New Wave, Trip-Hop, etc.

    I do enjoy a large amount of 70s & 80s Japanese Pop as well, which I have my aunt to thank for. I love classical music as in symphonies/orchestras, but I have to be in a very relaxed mood for it most of the time with the exception of the more upbeat and in-your-face material.

    I listen to music almost any chance I get, even if I have to hum it myself or tap my feet. My collection is still growing as well with the increasing knowledge of what's out there everyday; 2,042 albums in my collection so far.

    Currently listening to the K-Pax Soundtrack on CD through my audiophile setup, love my Sennheisers. :wub:

    Re: Spirit of Music

    My favorite bands are Red Hot Chili Peppers, Necrophagist, The Beatles, and Job For A Cowboy.

    Necrophagist is probably the most amazing band ever. Their guitar work is extremely complex, I can only play like, 2 of their songs, sloppily, and not even the entire things. I think their best songs are Stabwound, Seven, Only Ash Remains, and Mutilate the Stillborn.

    I really cannot stand any of the new "rock" music today. Jeez, it's like the Simpsons. Depreciated over time.

    It also ticks me off when people look at me all funny when I tell them what I listen to. Hey, you asked, if you can't handle it then don't.

    But yeah. <3 Necrophagist.

    I hope this will change your mind. If not, you are doomed beyond redemption.

    Crap, I still can't (don't know how) post youtube videos.

    Yep, I know them very well, more so BoC. Puchi's material is difficult to get a hold of, they ought to get with a new active label and produce some more material.

    I'd say my favorite song by BoC is '84 Pontiac Dream, it's so mellow that I could just drift off to it.

    You ever heard of Bullitnuts and Leggo Beast? :shifty:

    Tosca
    Aphex Twin
    Global Communication
    Baby Mammoth
    Govinda
    Fila Brazillia
    The Album Leaf
    Nor Elle
    Loess
    Lemongrass
    Aspen

    If you haven't heard of them, then you need to check them out. :D

    Led Zep, Beatles, Clapton, Bowie, Stones, The Who.

    And doing my jazz course has put me into contact with such greats as Armstrong, Ellington, Dizzy, Miles, Parker, and various others.
