    Just a project I need to do, we're setting up a radio station and we are arguing about what genre we have, so I thought I'd ask the audience, seeing Applers are smart (Heh heh heh) I set up a poll.

    Please vote, comment if you wish.

    P.S: If you're favourite genre is up, just post it (I could only have 10 options :().

    Has anyone heard the new beth ornton album yet?

    It's insanely amazing. I'd like to list my top 10 albums...ala, high fidelity, if you will.

    1. "The Queen is Dead" - The Smiths. Perfect Post-punk pop album. The finest from this Mancunian band.

    2. "Disintigration" - The Cure. Inetense, thick, wall of sound. Wonderfully introspective lyrics.

    3. "Take 5" - Dave Brubeck. Perfect jazz, from mellow to frenetic.

    4. "Souviaki" - Slowdive. MIght be the quinetessential "new psychadelia" album. Probably did more to influence the new electronica wave.

    5. "Armed Forces" - Elvis Costello. EC hits his stride--perfect, terse pop songs with lots to say.

    6. "Violator" - Depeche Mode. Perfectly summing up many emotions in my early high school years.

    7. "If You're Feeling Sinister" - Belle & Sebastian. If the Smiths were reincarnated...this was their album. Witty wry lyrics over a januty pop landscape. Bliss on sundays!

    8. "Red House Painters" - Red House Painters. Beautifully depressing album. Slow songs, chiming, textured guitars. Perfect for a rainy day.

    9. "Sounds From The Thievery Hi-Fi" - Theivery Corporation. Great mix of latin styles, dub, reggae, electronica, samba, jazz, and everything else. Some might say "recipe for disaster" but these DC DJs pull it off.

    10. "Roseland NYC" - Portishead. Portishead and a 32 piece orchestra play live. Some of the stuff is SO tight you'd think it was recorded. Over and over again. With lots of overdubs. A must have.

    Hardcore Rock/Metal is my taste. If you check out my profile you will see some of my favorite bands.

    Usually I listen to the Rock/Metal because it's just who I am. I'm not in the music for the profanity, as, when I have the spare time, I like to censor out the music. Plus, I get to scare the rats out of the house with the sub I have (in NJ). :D

    On occasion, however, I will adopt to much less hardcore music, such as Moby, Incubus, RHCP, Nickelback, StainD, Meja, and Hoobastank.

    Beth Ortons new album is totally cool......... especially Concrete Sky and Mount Washington...... :)

    "Sounds From The Thievery Hi-Fi" - Thievery Corporation ahh yeah...... have to go with 2001 A Spliff Odyessey and Shaolin Satellite from that........ :)

    PNYC on the 'Strangers' everytime I hear that song, right towards the end when the orchestra kicks in......I get a severe case of goosebumps....... very few songs do that to me....... :) have you checked out the PNYC DVD yet???

    Re: People's favourite music genre

    Well, maybe if you hadn't put Blues twice, you coulda fit in Classic Rock. ;) Yeah, I know it's a branch of "Rock", but I like to differentiate between Modern Rock and Classic Rock. So, um, my favorite is Classic Rock. :cool:

    Yea. That "strangers" track is unreal. it's fun to listen to on the car stereo with a group of my friends who happen to be s***ed. :D

    There's a place in Pittsburgh called Mount Washington, and i always try to listen to that sound whilst driving up there. :)

    Shaolin Satellite is a killer song... I like the "edgier" stuff tons, buyt the mellow stuff. Yea.... Ever heard of Mad Professor??? You'd probably dig his stuff. And some of the 18th street bands.... Desmond Williams, Ursula 1000, Thunderball.

    Good stuff.

    The Guardians of Dalliance is a band i bought just cause of the name, and they kick a$$ too. Also, been listening to a bunch of Groove Armada, Coltrane (of course!) and this wacky 80's compilation i have, which has some good stuff (MIrror in the Bathroom, live, live Madness, etc.)

    But I still think, from a production standpoint, Madonna's "like a prayer" from the Immaculate Collection rocks the shack.

    Oh. And the new New Order album is insanely good too.

    Mad Professor...... oh yeah.... he's done a ton of stuff with Massive Attack........ :) incidently whose new album is due soon....... :)

    Not heard of the others..... so will be making an effort to find some songs...... and check them all out........ ;) :D

    I'm just kicking back to Kid Loco's 'presents jesus life for children under 12 inches' at the mo..... if you've not heard this then it's definitely worth a listen...... mogwai, Uriel, Saint Etienne, talvin Singh and Badmarsh+shri are all on it.... it's a cracking album........ ;)

    i have a weird dad(a good thing)so i grew up on weird jazz and prog-rock like Soft Machine and King Crimson. now i am a musician by trade and i sometimes have to do very lame commercial stuff for work. so my personal taste still resides pretty far to the left...experimental electronic stuff, jazz, post rock, even some abstract hip-hop.

    Hey evildead, not to knock your friend's band or anything, but I gotta say their site seems a bit juvenile. I mean everyone's entitled to get normalcy out of their system, but the whole gagging sounds, the red broken typewriter font on a black background, it's just so.... trite... it's ironic that in being extreme to get away from "normal" bands, they've become almost normal themselves...

    Oh well, to each his own. :)

    Look at that!

    Look at the spike on Alternative/AlternRock/ Alternative Rock! Is it just a coincidence that most mac users like this particular genre? hmmmmm.......Interesting....Very interesting...

    i guess punk/hardcore would fit into alternative rock. so i'll go with that

    plus any thing that spears or j-lo or the groups of suave guys put out...
