Jay-z Reasonable Doubt, IMO the greatest rap album of all time. Lyrics, instrumentals and so much bravado it will make you feel like you're in the back of a chauffeured black Maybach.

I love Jay Z but Reasonable Doubt is not the greatest rap album of all time. Illmatic & Aquemini are both better, can likely think of a few more if I wanted to. I would put it in the top 10 though.

Phil Collins and Huey Lewis and the News. Occasionally some Whitney Houston.

re: Huey. Their early work was a little too new wave for my taste. But when Sports came out in '83, I think they really came into their own, commercially and artistically. The whole album has a clear, crisp sound, and a new sheen of consummate professionalism that really gives the songs a big boost. He's been compared to Elvis Costello, but I think Huey has a far more bitter, cynical sense of humor.

Hey, Paul!

May 26, 2017

Phil Collins' solo career seems to be more commercial and therefore more satisfying, in a narrower way. Especially songs like In the Air Tonight and Against All Odds. Sabrina, don't just stare at it, eat it. But I also think Phil Collins works best within the confines of the group, than as a solo artist, and I stress the word artist.

70% Rap - 20% Rock (not heavy metal or pop folk rock bullshit, 60s/70s rock and 90s bands like Nirvana) - 10% everything else (jazz/ blues/ reggae/ R&B/ soul)

EDM & Trance are my main ones, but I enjoy listening to classic rock and some of the top 40 songs from time to time.

METALLICA

May 22, 2017

Everything from instrumental to world music.

May 22, 2017

It's mostly EDM for me -- Audien, Arty, Madeon, and Porter Robinson are the artists that I listen to the most nowadays. I'm also getting into electro-swing. It's basically just swing music that's been given a 21st century sound and it puts me in a good mood. I'll listen to anything by Parov Stelar or Caravan Palace.

May 22, 2017

I only listen to Tibetan throat singing on Youtube at 2x speed. It's like snorting cocaine through your eardrums!

Kendricks DAMN is like Illmatic for the new generation. Top five greatest hip hop album ever.

Other than rap I'm a fan of metal stuff like Metallica or Alice In Chains. Celebrate my masculinity.

May 24, 2017

lol completely disagree. DAMN isn't even as good as To Pimp a Butterfly or Good Kid, Maad City not to speak of top 5 all-time.

p.s. I will say Kendrick's current streak of GKMC -> TPAB -> DAMN might be the most impressive first three albums of any single rapper ever (Outkast's southernplayalistic -> ATLiens -> Aquemini is just as impressive)

TPAB wants to be what DAMN is.

May 26, 2017

In my head canon I have "The Lost Tapes" as Nas' third album and would put that trio at the top of the heap.

I listen to almost anything, I can't really say there is a genre of music I don't like (minus like super hardcore stuff that isn't really music anyway).

I have been listening to Logic quite a bit lately because of his new album.

May 25, 2017

Been listening to music in Spanish, mostly top 40 etc. Helping with my side project of learning Spanish. Quality stuff relative to most of the crap on the radio these days.

Armin van Buuren - Intense

I like tons of music, but when things are moving 1000000000 miles an hour at work and I can't afford to lose focus thinking about some catchy hook, it's classical or jazz all the way.

Something musically gifted to stimulate creativity, but meandering and non-repetitious enough that I don't get distracted. Makes great background music.

We have similar tastes, but if you haven't heard them, you're missing In Flames - particularly the early era e.g. Jester Race.

May 25, 2017

haha couldn't agree more with you on that one... I love In Flames, though their new album kinda sucks. Cheers bud

May 25, 2017

I would say Future, 50 Cent (old days), Lil Wayne (old days), Travis Scott, Migos.

I'm surprised that I haven't seen any Hip hop / rap people mention Big L, Eminem, or Immortal Technique.

May 24, 2017

Lifestylez ov da Poor & Dangerous pretty much summarizes Southside Chicago right now. I never was a big fan of Technique, too obsessed with being lyrical/ his message and not obsessed enough with making good music.

May 26, 2017

I tend to agree with your criticism of Tech. His music is not something you can just throw on and enjoy. But he does have a massive amount of talent. His word play is top 10 arguably top 5; and despite his redundant/depressing message his content suggest a level of understanding, knowledge, intelligence, and sophistication lacked by the majority of other artists.

Mostly techno, also listen to a good deal of trance and house. Outside of that there are a few non-electronic bands I like like Neutral Milk Hotel, American Football, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, and old Weezer. But 99% is electronic because I DJ a lot and produce a little.

I had the desk rocking out to The Beach Boys most of the day. I pretty much like oldies, jimmy buffet, classic rock, country. Cant forget random awesome songs like survivor, dont stop believing, highway to the dangerzone, pour some sugar on me. Pretty much any song can be played at excessively high voulumes to pump everyone in the vicinity up.

Jun 23, 2017

I was listening to a lot of trap and dubstep until Waka Focka's new mixtape came out, which sent me into a rap binge with a lot of Waka, Chief Keef, Gucci, and even Crime Mob, but now I've been listing to A Perfect Circle, Nine Inch Nails, and Manson a lot. For some reason I have Bob Dylan's entire discography in flac on my hard drive, so I guess I'll listen to that at some point.

Jun 23, 2017

Pink Floyd - their Pulse album is probably my favorite
The Doors
Black Sabbath
Blue Oyster Cult
Bob Marley
Boston
Cream of Clapton
CCR
Dire Straits
Judas Priest
Lynyrd Skynyrd
Motley Crue
Quiet Riot
Scorpions
Tom Petty
Twisted Sister
Van Halen
The Who

...the list goes on

Throw up Heat's cover of Stairway, probably one of the best covers I've ever seen of any song.

I'm a sophomore in college and can't stand listening to all this garbage out here today; glad to see someone else on here with the same musical interests. Pretty hard to find people who are interested in classic rock these days unless they grew up in that period.

Waymon3x6:

Judas Priest

LOL. I discovered Judas Priest when I sped away from campus police on the way home to the tune of "Breaking the Law." Felt so badass.

That's my next PF album, and I'll probably follow it up with Van Halen, The Doors and Black Sabbath. I need to check out Bob Marley too, my buddy's been talking about his stuff for years now. Awesome list.

If you haven't yet, go check out Metallica's early material. I literally can not take it off repeat right now.

Jun 23, 2017

Loved W.A.S.P, anthrax, sodom, sepultura, etc. growing up. still listen to them from time to time

I weep when I look at the songs dominating today's billboard hot 100 charts. Such a sad decline from the 80's and the 90's pre-boy bands.

Jun 23, 2017

Good stuff. Let's talk albums and not artists, because good artists usually have long careers and varying work product over the course of many albums:

Pearl Jam - Ten, Vs.
Van Halen - Van Halen, 1984
Metallica - Metallica, Ride the Lightning, Master of Puppets
Pink Floyd - The Wall, Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here
AC/DC - Back in Black
The Who - Who's Next, Quadrophenia
Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath, Paranoid
Led Zeppelin - All albums (an exception)
Rolling Stones - Sticky Fingers, Let It Bleed
Derek & The Dominoes - Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs
Dire Straits - Dire Straits, Alchemy (Live)
Jeff Beck - Truth
Rush - Moving Pictures
Allman Brothers - Brothers and Sisters, Live at Fillmore East
Stevie Ray Vaughn - Texas Flood
Jimi Hendrix Experience - Are You Experienced?, Live at Winterland
Megadeth - Rust in Peace
Bruce Springsteen - Darkness on the Edge of Town, Born to Run, Born in the USA
Guns n Roses - Appetite for Destruction

Greatest hits to buy: u2, police, eagles, boston, Yes

Enjoy!
