For me:

Rush  (not just saying that, have been replaying Dallas R40 a lot lately)
Eric Church  (country singer/songwriter that rocks a lot)
R.E.M.  (missed a lot of their stuff the first time around)

I go thru phases where I Listen to them a lot. My favorites
Document
Fables if the Reconstruction
Lifes Rich Pageant
Dead Letter Offfice
New Adventures in HiFi
Green

Only one of those do I not own, and haven't heard- New Adventures. Highly recommended?

Yes. I really like it.

Its really different for them. Read up on the history of that tour and the physical and mental toll it took on them.
The album is pretty much dismissed...or was upon release, but I really dig it.  I thought it was a refreshingly raw and heavy effort, and a nice contrast to the direction they had gone since Green.

Since my heavy jazz phase began a couple of weeks ago, I can't get enough of Wayne Shorter, Charles Mingus, Horace Silver, Lee Morgan, etc...

Today, I just lit into Ornette Coleman, and I'll start on a run of Grachan Moncur III in the very near future.

Check out the Jackie McLean Blue Note era from 63-67.

Jacknife

Haven't listened to any of them in more than 20 years...I just listened to the Let Freedom Ring album on YouTube last weekend, but I have those five albums above compiled on three cassettes, which I have planned to transfer to disc. Just haven't gotten to them yet. But I will. :yes:

Opeth

Steven Wilson

I can rarely go a day or two without listening to these bands right now. I am trying to get into Dream Theater this week for some variety but these four just won't let up on me. I crave them.
I have been obsessed with all things Steven Wilson related for the last couple of years, especially PT, Blackfield, Storm Corrosion and his solo work. I have tried to get into Dream Theater a number of times, but I can't seem to connect with them. They are technically very competent but I find their music dull.

I have listened to many of his singles over the years, but have truthfully never expected him to be much of an albums artist. I just played this and his debut and I am blow away!

Another of my favorites is Long After Dark and also his solo Wildflowers is excellent.

The opening stroll and guitar riff into Breakdown has to be one of my favorite bits of music ever. Similarly the drum and organ intro to Refugee and the erie, opening keyboard riff in You Got Lucky.

Wildflowers is just a wonderful album from top to bottom.

And days went by like paper in the wind
Everything changed
Then changed again

Count me in as a fan from this day on. I loved them!

Also have to say that I am now mad in love with the music of Garth Brooks.

Say what you like US fans but in the UK we never hear music like this so it is all brand new to my ears and I love it!

Bertolt Brecht.  Avantgarde German music from the 1930's...my sister was into it during her university studies back in the 70's, and I got into it during my exploration of existentialism.  I was somehow compelled to re-visit it today.

I watched/listened to the original Threepenny Opera today (Mack the Knife, etc.)
