What kind of music do poets listen to? I look around me and see many local poets listening to new age music and classical, shunning rock, thinking they're too good for it... Hate those people :p

I listen to a ton of stuff... I have a very broad range of preferences.

My very very favorite band is Pink Floyd. Never will they be replaced as my favorite band.
I also like Queensryche, Dream Theater, Sting, The Beatles, The Moody Blues, Jethro Tull, Coldplay, Journey, Tom Petty, and the list goes on forever...

That of course doesn't look to broad. It's all rock, 0the only difference being the sub categories each one belongs to.

I also like new age music, I have all four of the Pure Moods cds and the Pure Chill Out cd. I like the blend of music from Africa and Asia with American influences. My favorite new age artist is Enigma, followed by Delerium.

In addition to that, I like techno. Techno rocks because there is so much of it and it's so easy to make. My favorite artists here(though many of my favorite techno songs have anonymous artists) are Torley Wong and Digital Droo.

I also like some orchestra music... The Star Wars soundtracks are excellent examples. I love all three of the original ones, and the Episode 1 soundtrack was really good. Haven't listened to Episode two yet, though.

Basically, music is my life. I love music. I am very passionate about music and I fervently defend it if someone starts insulting my music. I'm interested to know what you guys like

Yes.

Let's see - on the desk tonight:

Matchbox 20's new one - It's "ok."
Lifehouse: Stanley Climbfall - Pretty good, though not as good as teh first by far.
Queensryche: Promised Land, Hear in the Now Frontier, and Operation Mindcrime - Uhm, yeah, I have all their albums, 'nuff said.
Disturbed: Believe - LOVE it.

That's tonight, though I did spend some time d/l older Disturbed.

It changes with the mood and the evening - I love everything you've listed above, though I don't think I've heard of the one you listed after Enigma.

Yeah, I thought Pink Floyd was untoppable as my favorite, until Ani DiFranco came along-  but it's really hard to judge that, because they are two completely different types of music, pink Floyd generally appealing more to intellect, and Ani appealling more to emotion.

I'm listening to Third Eye Blind's self-titled right now... it's got to be the most thouroughly sad album I've ever listened to.

Other that, I kind of go all over the place... I'm suprised by my new affinity for the dumb punk rock that seems to have become popular lately.

mariah carey tends to make everyone violent.

especially our furry little friends, as her high notes are commonly confused with dog whistle tones.

let's see... I love music, but only my music.  I'm open-minded though, usually anything I hear that's powerful, sublime, or well-written strikes me as great music.

Here are the artists I have folders for, at least SOME of them:

- Boards of Canada
- Cabaret Voltaire
- Cat Rapes Dog
- Das Ich
- Diary of Dreams
- Faith and the Muse
- Front Line Assembly
- Funker Vogt
- Gross National Produkt
- Haujobb
- Hocico
- In Flames
- Informatik
- Kalte Farben
- Kompressor In Action
- LeŠther Strip
- Marilyn Manson (I know, I know)
- Nirvana
- Philip Glass
- Pink Floyd
- Plastic Assault
- Shpongle
- Sigur Ros
- Skinny Puppy
- Sneaker Pimps
- Suicide Commando
- Tangerine Dream
- Throbbing Gristle
- U2
- Vangelis
- Velvet Acid Christ
- VNV Nation
- VoID CoNSTRUCT
- :wumpscut:
- X Marks the Pedwalk


See?  Long list, very diverse.    

Opeth is also quite good.  Right now I'm in love with the song "Harvest."

Oh and Poetic Justice... if you're into new-agey stuff like Enigma, you should check out Shpongle.  They're kind of a trancey-ish group that takes a very international approach to their style... they use a lot of african/indian/etc elements in their sound.  You might like it.

yes, but when music was still good.

do you think anyone is going to bother with britney spears, mariah carey and n'sync twenty years from now?

i doubt they'll even remember their names.

and jazz, and rock and whatnot aren't considered pop in my books.

pop is no longer an abbreviation for popular music.  it's a whole new genre, made up of britney spears, ricky martin, backstreet boys, christina aguilera and all of those lovely artists who don't even write any music and are simply around for merchandising and revenue purposes.

This place rocks! At school I'm hard pressed to find someone with the same musical tastes as myself... Most of my friends are into crap like Linkin Park and System of a Down and other new punk rock crap like that. I swear, they know maybe a total of four chords(I even know more than that, and I'm just learning) and they scream simple, angry lyrics into the mic as loud as they can. No talent.

Christopher, I'm interested to know which Queensryche album you like best(I have them all too, they're easily my second or third favorite). I'm torn between Empire, Operation: Mindcrime, and Promised Land. The latter is so different than anything else they've done... But the first time I listened to it I was like, "Wow, the reviewers don't know anything..."

I pretty much like any progressive rock, Pink Floyd invented the genre, and hey, it's good stuff. I like sprawling 15 minute long rock suites like what Dream Theater and Pink Floyd do. The only problem is that finding mp3s for some of the lesser known bands is pretty hard... I'm not buying the cd if I don't get a chance to sample it first.

About pop though, this is a common misconception nowadays: The pop most people refer to as crap like Britney and Christina and N'Sync and such are not pop, they are teeney bop pop. A sub genre. The Beatles are pop, Nelly Furtado(she's pretty good) is pop, Matchbox 20 is considered pop, Michelle Branch, there's a long list of talented pop artists. It's also true that no one's going to remember the crap music from today in 20 years. The old good stuff? Yes. Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, they'll all be remembered and reverred, and probably dead too . Dark Side of the Moon was on the US LP charts for almost 15 years, no one's going to remember Britney in 10. Pink Floyd and the bands I mentioned above are still selling well today, Britney won't. I don't know why I went on this long schpeel... But oh well. I'm incredibly passionate about my music. Especially my favorites.


Mmm, and I forgot several bands that I love... U2, Collective Soul, They Might Be Giants, Steve Miller Band...

Operation Mindcrime is not only my absolute favorite Queensryche album, but also my favorite concept album, just barely topping Tommy, by The Who.

Promised Land was pretty darn good after a four year or so break, but lies third on my Queensryche list, topped by Mindcrime at first and Rage for Order at second. They rocked all the way through, and honestly, the album I liked the least was Empire... it was too... mellow, for Geoff Tate's unique, hard-hitting voice.

Oh - and a definite agreement with the epic songs such as you'd find with Dream Theater's older stuff (urgh on all but the original Metropolis... got waaaay overdone), Floyd, older Metallica (Sanitarium for example), and Mercyful Fate to name a few. Ah, but they fall to the wayside after a while and we're left with the ones we already know by heart...

Okay, I don't get the thing with being "m!zzundastood' as such a hip thing- Bif Naked, P!nk (I'm lauging at myself for typing an ! instead of an i), Avril Lavigne, all prance around revelling in their 'defferentness' and complaining about it at the same time. Bif Naked isn't quite as bad about it as the other two...

You know what song I heard on the radio today that held up much better than I would have expected it to? 'Shoop' by Salt-n-Pepa... I remembered the words from when I was like ten...

System of a Down is growing on me... I like Toxicity quite a bit- I definitely wouldn't lump them with Linkin Park... System's songs might not be cheery, or even always substantial, but they have a lot more going for them that L. Park and P. Roach (aren't they synonymous?) do...

System of a Down? Punk? That's like calling Slayer or Megadeth punk, because they infuse politics into their music....

No no no no no no. Punk is long dead. Nirvana was punk. Sex Pistols were punk. Ramones, definitely. X, yes. Germs, X-Ray Spex, The Slits, Siouxsie's first album, The Clash, Minor Threat, Black Flag. All punk.

Dead Kennedys. Definitely punk.

Green Day, Linkin Park, The Offspring. God, no. Blink 182? Blech.

The Cure and Depeche Mode are more punk than Blink 182 -- and their music is infinitely better.

Anyway. Wasn't that confusing?

Mike (that's your name, right?)

The term 'punk' seems to have become quite the loaded term.

There's old school punk (which, incidentally, I'm not very fond of, though my boyfriend loves it.)

What makes the Ramones more punk than Blink 182? I mean, I would call the Ramones very poppy- sure they did the whole 3-chord thing, but so did Patty Smith. Big gap there- so what's punk?

Modern punk/pop, like Blink 182, Sum 41, Green Day, Good Charlotte, A Simple Plan, on and on and on... have a certain sound that links them all together as punk. There's a certain sound that you come to expect from the bass-drums-lead guitar style that characterizes punk.

I don't include Linkin Park or the Offspring here, because I think they have more of a metal thing going.

But, is punk simply a way of making music? Or is it an ideal? Is there a rule that says punk can't be profitable, that it has to stay underground to remain truly punk? When music appeals to too many people, does that mean it is no longer cutting-edge enough to be considered punk?

What exactly do you mean?

Oh, and I disagree on the Cure/Depeche Mode thing- not that I don't like the Cure (must say that I'm not much of a Depeche Mode fan, though)... How do you justify calling 80's Euro-synth/industrial bands (at least in part) more punk than Blink 182? Is it because they had this "anti-good stuff" thing going on? because I don't think punk has to be that...

but then what kind of scale
compares the weight of two beauties
the gravity of duties
or the ground speed of joy?

-Ani DiFranco
