Used to be an alternative/indie freak. Over time shifted to the more Electro/Dance styles: House (of all kinds), Trance (anything but psy), DnB and close genres (dub/trip-hop etc.), Ambient/chill-out etc.

Various types of music come and go for me, becoming favourite for a time being, then being put off on a shelf, only to be drawn out again later.

Right now, I'm into Santana ( "Black Magic Woman" was played n number of times this last couple of days on my iRiver ... love that music), as well as the great jazz fusion bands of 1970s: Return to Forever, the Mahavishnu Orchestra, Weather Report and Herbie Hancock's line-ups.

Overall, I love old-school rock and related genres. Adore the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Cream, Bob Dylan ... Now also digging into Zappa (never kew too much of him ... from my limited looking at him the man has genius written all over him ... I read somewhere that the monument to Zappa in Vilnius is the only one in the whole world ... :rolleyes: ) ... Procol Harum ... The Doors ... Jeff Beck ... (though not really Hendrix ... yeah, he's flashy, he was revoliutionary and all that, but just doesn't catch me) ... T.Rex ... The Velvet Underground ... Lynyrd Skynyrd (prefer them over the Allman Brothers ... real raw power of Southern Rock and less academical) ... Jethro Tull ... Tom Waits ... The Police ... old love Status Quo - their raw sound of 70s ... well, these are just a handful, for sure.

Everything between rock and death metal. Favourite groups right now are Devildriver, Mushroomhead and Cradle Of Filth ;)

Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Arcade Fire, The Libertines, Babyshambles, Sigur Ros, Sonic Youth, Pink Floyd, The Strokes. Recently tried listening to The View, Oasis, The Mekons and Love Is All, all were quite good.

I am not sure what genre of music is that. I simply call it rock, although some people prefer names like "indie rock", "experimental rock", "post rock", "alternative rock".. I have no idea what any of those mean. ; - ) Of course I am not stuck only to the bands I mentioned, any music is okay for me as long as it is not hip-hop (hip-hop, rap? whatever they call it).

Anything that sounds good. From classic ska and Rastafareye reggae (not dancehall), to classic rock and alternative rock, grunge and mod, to Hip-Hop (indy, not that mainstream U.S. crap). From blues to some jazz, all kinds of music, even some classical. :D

Basically, it comes down to the artist, not the genre. Anything from Aesop Rock, Atmosphere, Josh Martinez, Talib Kweli to Nirvana, The White Stripes, The Hives. From Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Toots and the Maytals, Matisyahu to The Beatles, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, The Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix. Not too mention Dieselboy, Hive, RJD2, Afrika Bambaataa to Sublime, Rage Against the Machine so forth.

Hoped that helped...:rolleyes:

My play list consists of all kind of music, from classical (Bach, Mozart etc.) to Fear Factory. :D

I have periods when I'm just listening to rap (2PAC mostly) or a period when I need ballad kind of music (currently I'm in such period, currently I'm listening to John Lennon - Imagine :)).

I'm not an ordinary "my age guy" who mostly listen to what is currently popular at MTV.:)

I like tracks from almost every genre. Current favorites would include vnv nation( favorite band right now), sly and the family stone, steve vai, gap band, blue, various remixes of the 80's and the 70's (hi-tack - say say say), de vision for their lyrics etc etc. The list could go on for severall pages so i should stop while there is still time. 200 GB mp3 archive and that isn't nearly enough. I'll be satisfied with about 2 terra i guess:D

Yeah, ecclectic, just like me. I don't like too much this "sticking to one style, being a hardcore fan, all-else-is-crap" attitude. Maybe it could be told about basketball cheering as well, but I'm not too sure. :D

Man, it's time to move on to a higher level - things like FLAC and other high-quality audio. :)

Half-joking, of course. MP3 at whatever quality is a good way to get an introduction to something, to filter out unneccessary things. If something hooks you - then you can try to look for the same good-quality record.

you start the post with free your mind attitude and end it like a total snob :p I doubt there's a lot of people capable (physically) to tell the difference between the decent mp3 and the original CD. I deffinitely can't :(

http://blogmusik.net/ - another interesting music website.

Check out Explosions in the Sky (http://www.last.fm/music/Explosions+in+the+Sky), a great band! It is currently my favourite one.

I will not bore anyone with a long list of the music I like. My posts already run long as it is. Suffice to say I have eclectic music taste, an external hard drive, two extremely large bookcases stuffed with cds, and I used to be a music buyer, and leave it at that. However, some sites to share:

EMusic (http://www.emusic.com/) - no DRM, very few major labels. Depending upon what country you live in, you will not be able to download some of the music available in the U.S. Which may or may not matter to you. Subscriptions are very, very cheap. It does not work like any other site - you either buy a song or you get a subscription which entitles you to a number of songs per month. Once you buy the songs, you can put them on as many computers and devices as you like and they play on everything, no restrictions. Also everything you download stays in your account so if you lose your library, EMusic lets you download it again. If EMusic were a man and I was still single, I'd probably marry it.

MOG (http://http://mog.com/) - a beta music-blogging site. You download a web 2.0 application that then lists your library on your MOG page and connects you with other people who like what you like. Completely and totally addicting and I have made a bunch of friends here. Lots of indie bands also post here.

Pandora (http://pandora.com/) - internet radio application. You tell Pandora a song you like and it starts playing other songs based on that; you then vote and tell it whether you liked them. Pandora will drive you crazy and make you broke introducing you to music you didn't know about. I am still working on my "music like Meat Beat Manifesto" list from about six months ago. It does a really great job.

Magnatune (http://www.magnatune.com/) - this is a small niche site. A lot of classical, new age and what I would classify as "world fusion" perhaps. You can listen to most of it for free all day long and downloads are cheap. Like eMusic, once downloaded, play anywhere. I am becoming one of those "screw iTunes and DRM" nutjobs I'm afraid. Nothing ticks me off more than when I can't play something I bought on my iPod. End music tyranny! OK, off the soapbox Michelle.

Calabash (http://calabashmusic.com/) - more world music, this site offers custom playlists built upon artists too. Enter an artist and see what you get. It's pretty neat. Also has a lot of videos of international artists and nice, lengthy, "figure out what it sounds like" reviews instead of snooty, "I really want to be an art critic" reviews that make no bloody sense.

Internet Music Archive (http://www.archive.org/details/etree) - free music from net labels. Really. Check it out. Tons of live music. This is where you go if you are into touring bands in the U.S. Also offers audio books and stuff.

Bleep (http://www.bleep.com/)- must . . . have . . . electronic . . . noise.

Earplug (http://earplug.cc/)- see above. Awesome newsletter that clues you in to everything going on in electronic music, if you are into that sort of thing. Clicks, beats, clicks, beats, clicks, beats . . . you get the picture.

Live Downloads (http://www.livedownloads.com/) - live downloads you can buy. Concert tapes of all kinds of bands.

More later when I have time.

I trust MP3 files ripped and encoded by myself. Beyond that - it depends. :)

Off-topic, for sure.
