Name the one band who you are THIS CLOSE to having just enough curiosity about to jump in and FINALLY give their catalogue a spin? Maybe it’s a band you sorta-kinda like or maybe it’s that artist where you have said “I really need to listen to....”

Who is it? (Just name ONE artist please - you don’t have THAT much free time, you slacking bastards!)

For me it’s Bruce Springsteen. I like the guy and I like most of what I have heard, but I own exactly no albums. I really think I would like him if I just went for it. (I f***ing LOVE the 1975 acoustic live version of Thunder Road).

This answer used to be RUSH until I finally did that in 2006. Spent about a year listening to literally nothing but that band...and, thus, my registering here.

Because there isn't one specific band. There was JUST one right at the top but I mentioned I am already well into the process of that. Good for you that JUST ONE stood out. For me there are plenty on equal footing. Whichever one comes first will depend on my mood that day.

He should go with the album run of Dark Side Of The Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals and The Wall. If those four don't get you into them then nothing will.

Don’t know about drooling, but a very good band worthy of said deep dive just the same.

Gave them a try earlier this year and enjoyed the albums I heard. If Rush was more straight up metal in the 70s they may have sounded like Budgie.

Excellent topic.  Two days ago I was going through my music collection, and came across some artists that I haven't given a fair shake.  I'm currently listening to...

Between the Buried And Me

... and so far so good.  Mars Volta was the other, and I couldn't make it through the entire album.  The leader singer's voice is just too frail and nasally for my tastes.  Musically they're like Radiohead, with perhaps slightly more prog elements.  BtB&M are more to my root music tastes, progressive elements with a distinct edginess.  Singer sounds more confident and accomplished.  Could do without the occasional cookie monster vocals but what can you do.

You've never listened to them?  Spin Lights Out and Obsession.  Two perfect albums.
