Suggestions are welcome!

I like to think that I have pretty broad taste, though my CD collection doesn't really reflect it ... might have something to do with the fact that I haven't bought a CD in over a year ...  

So let's see ... I'm not too hot on country except for the odd ballad, and "teeny" pop makes me physically ill (Britney Spears must die!) ... and rap or "hip hop" are completely out of the question.  Hardcore rock is OK as long as it doesn't sound like a) small animals are being tortured to death to create the instrumental portion and b) someone shoving a baseball bat or other hard object into a garbage disposal to create the vocals.  Other than that, I'm open.

Just to give an idea, I like everything from Enya to Everclear, the Clash to Clannad -- so come on, give me some fresh meat!!

... what if the Hokey Pokey really IS what it's all about ...?

Hmmmm....here's some non-mainstream stuff for you, most with non-intelligible lyrics, or wonderful wailing...:

Tosca...a smooth mix of electronica and piano etc with enough haunting sound to rule hip hop out completely heh (and there ain't no rap baby lol)...try these songs:

The Key, Annanas, Busenfreund, Orozco

Thievery Corporation...more smooth mixes...with some great Middle Eastern chanting going on in some pieces...lol...nice drum beats...

try Illumination, Tomorrow and The Mirror Conspiracy to start with - each is very different from the other...

Try Autechre for plain electronic, repetitious weird:

Basscadet, Clipper, Eutow...

Aphex Twin is psycho - under the genre of Intelligent dance Music - which is a complete misnomer because you can't dance to this stuff I assure you:

On, Grass, Flim

then you could go for Bjork, Massive Attack and similar, better known artists if you haven't already heard of them...

Jamie described what I listen to heh as 'situational' music (ie, I think he meant any situation where I am by myself and can't hurt the ears of the general public...lol...) but give it a try Linda...electronica doesn't equal hiphop - I can't stand it either.

If you want to get the songs I listed the best place is at Audiogalaxy.com

Don't know if this is what you're looking for, Linda, but I love Uncle Kracker's "Follow Me"......

If your an Edwin McCain fan...the new one "Far From Over..(just came out) is a must..classic Edwin soul

The latest Train "Drops of Jupiter"...
Lifehouse.. "No Name Face"
Vertical Horizon Live Stages(older release)

and for all us old 70's and 80's dino's....
Journey came out with a new one last month..
WITHOUT Steve Perry on vocals...
BUT they found a clone who sounds just like him and the songs are classic Journey.

The new Aerosmith Just Push Play is pretty good too. Jaded is a cool song.

Stevie Nicks has a new solo out too.
MatchBoxTwenty..Mad Season (sorry Bri)    
David Gray..White Ladder
Nina Gordon.. Tonite And the Rest of my Life
U2 .. All that U cant Leave behind.

We're all feeding our lonely like it might go away,
Like the doors of heaven will swing wide open if we just find the right words to say.

OK well let me see,

I have recommend Manic Street Preachers, that amazing highly intelligent Welsh band that are virtually ignored state side. If you like the Clash, and don't mind bands with similar politic motivations (not all their songs are issue driven, and the music is as important as the lyric content)
then I recommend the Manics especially their album "Everything must Go". if you have something like napster then try downloading this song

A design for life.

if you like that check out

No surface all feeling
Kevin Carter
Ocean Spray.
Motorcycle emptiness

next I recommend Joy Division. they were part of the post punk era in Britain along with the Cure. The sound is more abrasive mechanical. Their lyrics are amazing very poetic. They are like a darker version of THe Doors.

Songs. all of them, some are tough going too dark here are some of the more uptempo numbers

Love will tear us apart (is probably their most easy listening track)
Shadow Play
insight
transmission
Dead Souls (covered by NIN on the Crow sound track

Nick cave's last album, "No more shall we part", different to his previous work. Very beautiful. In the same vein musically as his hit with Kylie.  

PJ Harvey. any of her albums, she is a bit of Bob Dylan, Patti Smith, Hole and Alanis (yet less whiny and more heart felt and emotional). Her last album "Stories from the sea, stories from the city" is the most assessable of her albums, though my favourite is "To bring you my love".

Ok listen to me!!!
Alright I am an alternative freak...

Smashing Pumpkins- if you want some VERY deep musical lyrics and a band who is the epitome of rock music this is your band. They play hits from 1979, galapogos, and Stumbeline which are very soft...to Zero, here is no why, and Bullet with Butterfly wings which are hard.
Your best bet would be to buy their cds: Melloncollie and the Infinite Sadness (it's a two cd collection), and if you want really nice soft music then buy Adore.

Radiohead- if you want asome good alternative with a twist. Their latest music is mostly a form of electronica, but they are a ROCK band, so don't be confused. Your best bet would be to buy any cd EXCEPT "Kid A", and "Amnesiac", I don't think you'd like those.


if you want more advice ask

do your tastes venture into the Jazz and Classical areas???

If so, I can offer a number of recordings in each category. . . just wondering. . .

Yep...I'm with JM on the Train and Lifehouse CD's...excellent excellent excellennt choices...but another good one is Splender...their single was on the radio last year sometime, I think...it's called "I Think God Can Explain"...and the rest of the CD is good, too...I'll be back if I can think of some more...

Linda, you freak me out... began writing out errands for the day/week, and listed a few goals as well... the first was: FIND NEW MUSIC!
Bless your smart-alecky little heart...

My contribution? One album of mine that everyone swoons over:

Karma by Delirium

and I can make you a copy of Golden Bough (awesome Celtic band) for when we get together next.  

a few old favorites: anything by Cowboy Junkies, everything by Nanci Griffith, Type O Negative (The Least Worst of Type O Negative is a good starting album), Tabitha's Secret, and Anne Sophie Mutter (violinist). Thatís all for now... you should really ask the hermit, he has quite a few surprises on his CD shelf.

My number one recommendation without a single qualm is Dream Theater. The band has the talent of some of the most incredible musicians I've ever had the pleasure of hearing. Great lyrics, and incredible evocative music. If you have not heard Dream Theater I advise you to do so. Not doing so is a mortal music sin  

Another favorite is Queensryche, with their absolutely killer concept album, "Operation: Mindcrime" and also "Empire." Mindcrime can get pretty gritty, but Geoff Tate can sing so don't worry about that.

Both those bands are prog rock/metal, but for some softer a little more pop/alternative, I really do recommend Vertical Horizon. Excellent musicians and songwriters.

And if you don't have a Pink Floyd album, I won't be able to speak with you   "The Division Bell" is an incredible album showcasing David Gilmour's talent, especially.

Those are my recommendations for music that doesn't run in the cynical and jaded vain.

Hmm..I'm kind of behind, but I've recently discovered a band called Tantric. I love them.   Incubus?   I've heard some of their music on the radiot, but I'm not sure how the rest of it is.

Shock Javier does not like KID A or Amnesiac
by Radiohead.

Kid A is a great album.
Brian Eno dreamy stuff, a bit of Jazz, blues, rock and haunting ballads.

The other album has about 6 good songs,
if you can down load "pyramid song"
a beautiful song, like of jazz with mainly a piano.

Best bet though is their album Ok Computer.

Okay.   I've just rediscovered Peter Cetera. He isn't new of course, but could be if you haven't heard him. LOL! I'm sure you have though.   "World Falling Down" is the one I have right now by him.   Beautiful love songs!

Charlotte Church is indeed awesome if you're in an opera mood.

Other things I love that you might want to check out:

Any song or any CD by Tracy Chapman....she has such a deep, sultry alto voice, very simplistic and tender, but also shows the strength of women...she's great for the girl power.  

Whomever suggested Matchbox 20's "Mad Season" CD (I forgot who and my review topic thing won't load) is smart, I love that one too.  Has some great ballads as well as some faster stuff.  Good all around.

Patty Larkin- Now this woman is a musical genius....everything from ballads to funky guitar, she does it all....My fav CD is "Perishable Fruit" although her latest "Regrooving The Dream" is awesome too.  Definitely someone to check out.  My guitar teacher introduced me to her and I've been lovin her stuff ever since.

Hm, just a few ideas for now, maybe I'll come back with more later.
