    This should give you a fair amount of rock, metal and a few other genres to explore a bit. Maybe expand your musical horizons beyond the norm you see in the charts let me know if you like any. I tended to put down the most accessible stuff for people new to each genre, rather than the best stuff in each genre so I can help out with some more recs if you ask nicely

    most kind of you :sexface:

    ive also taken heed of your recommendations, am looking forward to listening to them. maybe i can finally worm my way into classical music now


    classical is something I have always appreciated but never really gotten into until recently. I have only really heard Beethoven's tenth symphonies, Mussorgsky's pictures at an exhibition, Holst's the planets and Vivaldi's 4 seasons. I downloaded a compilation called something like 100 classical masterpieces and I am going to go through that. Mussorgsky's Night on a bald mountain is my favourite classical piece though, at least out of what I have heard. Not a fan of listening to opera's though as they are meant to be played out on a stage with actors, so without that I don't really understand them. The music is good, but it isn't the primary focus.

    Same with electronic, I am very much skimming the surface now, there are much better people out there to help with those. Metal on the other hand I know a lot about.

    At least I don't look at myself now and hate what I see. :yy:

    I guess that's a feeling you're not used to.

    Lol no. Your level of pretension is unreal. I hope you one day become comfortable enough in your skin so that you don't need to impress others all the time

    I love SP but disagree with the AHMS recommedation- it's not too bad, but Eyes Open is incredible !
    Bruce Springsteen- The Rising
    Lissie-Catching a Tiger
    Adele -19/ 21. Both brilliant!
    Ellie Goulding-Lights
    Killers-Sams Town
    Katy Perry- Teenage Dream

    They're some of my favourite albums about atm, but your tastes will almost certainly differ. :-)
    I agree with you on Ellie Goulding and Adele

    Spot on!

    I am looking for some new albums to listen to, any genres welcome.

    :woo:
    I've seen you around on the Soni/DL threads so I'm guessing you like rock/metal.

    Try these if you haven't already:

    Karma by Kamelot
    Nocturne by The Human Abstract
    Restless In The Tides by Forever In Terror
    Fortress by Protest The Hero

    That's for starters anyway.

    And here's me thinking taste in music- whatever music it may be- is a wholly subjective thing.

    Quite a few have already been mentioned, but here's a couple more I think are definitely worth a listen.

    Derek & The Dominos - Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs (Brilliant album, no filler songs, all great)

    John Mayer - Where The Light Is (He may be a bit of a douchebag, but he's talented and this live recording of his L.A concert really shows it)

    great album but i think it's a tad dated these days. not to put away the fantastic musicianship on the album tho!
