is the point of the soundtracks forum to just post a thread about a soundtrack you enjoy with a mini review of it?

some people find it pointless to post in the soundtracks forum because nobody seems to look at the music others recommend. kind of odd how it works. it was a nice try though.
I think some people look and try out music that others suggest , they just don't come back with a progress report on it...if they liked it or not.

Yeah, it is to recommend them to other people too. There are some great soundtracks out there that I personally feel would be enjoyed by a lot of posters. It has'nt took off like I thought it would have though

12-14: Not really into music at this point, only the stuff in my Dad's CD collection. He only likes 'popular' music so it was stuff like The Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, Pink Floyd, The Eagles, etc. Admittedly Wish You Were Here is still one of my favourite albums of all time. And I don't care what anyone says: Paul Simon's Graceland is a masterpiece.

15-18: Got into drum'n'bass through listening to Fabio & Grooverider's Radio 1 Show but especially into the ambient side (i.e. Good Looking Records). Then hip-hop/electronica, like DJ Shadow, Boards of Canada, Squarepusher, Roots Manuva, Aim, Cannibal Ox, The Roots, cLOUDDEAD, Amon Tobin, etc. I also listened to some jazz: mainly Blue Note, but also some Prestige stuff.

18: Being at uni with a few good mates from school, we pooled our music libraries, and from that I got into all sorts of guitar-based music: punk (from The Damned to Bad Religion to Millencolin), stadium rock (Def Leppard, Europe), to thrash (the big four, Testament, Sepultura). Thanks to a NME review on Interpol, I got into post-punk/goth: Joy Division, Sisters of Mercy, Bauhaus, Sex Gang Children.

18-19: My fondness for Sepultura led me to look for more good metal, which led to Opeth's Blackwater Park. This opened me up to metal in general (Emperor, Dark Tranquillity, (old) Children of Bodom, Candlemass, Dream Theater, Windir, etc) and prog rock (Yes, Camel, Soft Machine, Genesis, etc)

20-now: ISIS' awesome second album, Oceanic gets me into post-rock and other associated genres; ambient, shoegaze, etc. My appreciation for Justin Broadrick's music (Napalm Death, Godflesh, Jesu) leads to Swans, Killing Joke, etc.

Now: I'm still listening to the stuff I used to, which makes it very hard to keep up with other genres/new releases/new music.

I started out in music listening to whatever my parents had around. Mostly oldies (60’s-70’s). This is probably common with most people, but this era probably lasted longer with me that most, due to the fact that I was extremely sheltered. I’m thankful for this time though, because it gave me a firm foundation in some of the older greats.
Then I had a brief bout of listening to mid 90’s pop radio, which thankfully didn’t last.
When I was about 14, a friend of mine gave me a copy of Dogwood’s first album, on cassette, and a copy of MXPX’s album Sick Boy, also on cassette. This launched my all-important punk era. Which led to hardcore, death metal, and eventually rapcore.
After a band breakup (hardcore band), I got into a little more melodic rock stuff, and maybe a little ambient rock. I went through a short emo phase (didn’t really get the screamo stuff though), and then settled into a acoustic rock/ folk type of stage, which is where I am today.
So, I have meandered through quite a few different music styles over the years, and there are artist that I still like in each era; but there are also those that I don’t listen to anymore. And here I am, always looking for more music every day. So who knows where I’ll go next. I love that music has so many styles and niches. I don’t think that I will ever confine myself to a specific genre, because they all have their strengths and downfalls.

I'm not quite 17...but i started at the age of 4 on piano and until about 6th grade i only listened to classical music (which was what i was playing)
in 7th grade i discovered Green Day and Blink-182...and gradually began to start liking alternative crap. once 9th grade hit i switched schools and lost all my friends, so i started getting into emo and so called "hardcore" stuff, but by the end of the year i was listening to Jackson Browne and Paul Simon.

Now however I listen to everything except alternative, rap, disco, and emo hardcore stuff. I like some deathmetal, like Amon Amarth, i like progrock, classic metal, and rock and rockablily in general. Jazz is always really fun to listen to and get into, but my favorite by far is Blues, especially The Allman Brothers Band. The one thing i must say about my tastes is i tend to dislike overrated songs that everyone makes a huge deal over but i find boring. Stairway To Heaven and Freebird would be prime examples. I also tend to dislike most overrated bands excluding classic rock bands (like the beatles) and a couple other bands that are overrated for a good reason. I also dislike most music now, because it lacks so much musicality i cant stand it. I'm sorry, but playing 3 powerchords and singing with a not so great voice with no changeups in the song and just a crapload of distortion to make it sound cooler does not appeal to me.

I turned 23 last month and I have been into music for 12 years now. I started listening to Guns n Roses when I was 11 cause of my two older brothers, and I kind of evolved on my own from there. I have listened to everything, from Iron Maiden to The Smiths.
When I was younger I was more into metal and later on there was a period of 18 months when I was only listening to Pink Floyd which still are my all time favourite.
Now I still listen to classic bands like The Beatles, The Doors and Led Zeppelin but I try to listen to all kinds of newer stuff and bands. Right now I really like Anathema, Porcupine Tree, Muse, Arcade Fire and The National.

Default Evolution of your tastes.

Talk about the evolution of your taste. How much has your taste in music changed over the years?

The various stages of my music taste.

Early childhood: Since I was raised by my grandma, 50s rock n roll, R&B and country, thats all I was exposed to so I had grown to like it.

12: Pop and boy bands. I was really into the Spice Girls and watched Spice World god knows how many times. Only lasted about a month, I was sensible enough to grow out of it really quickly.

12-13: Fearing I was turning into a homosexual. My stepdad exposed me to a lot of c0ck rock to get some testosterone pumping, Van Halen, GnR, AC/DC, it really did the trick. I never really grew out of that kinda music, I still enjoy it today.

13-16: Pop punk/Nu metal/Post Grunge/Mainstream rap. If it was being played on MTV or Fuse, I probably liked it. I loved Limp Bizkit, Korn and Kid Rock. All that crap. The Offspring used to be my favorite band during this period.

16-17: I got into classic rock. Was really getting into Hendrix, Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, The Doors, The Who and eventually The Beatles. I started getting into stuff like Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Pearl Jam, Tool and Radiohead around the same time.

18: Ah yes, the age I became a proggie. It started when I discovered bands like Yes, King Crimson and ELP on sirius radio. I remember buying The Ultimate Yes compilation at a hastings record store and thats what turned me into a Yes fan, and it was Yes that got me interested in progressive rock.

19-Currently: I started getting into jazz, punk, electronic, hip hop, metal, 60s psychedelic rock, classical music, world music, everything. Stuff that was recommended to me by total strangers on the internet. And I got very into alternative rock, stuff like Sonic Youth, Pixies, My Bloody Valentine, Pavement, Dinosaur Jr, etc. And I'm still discovering new stuff. I realised that just about every genre has something to offer. I think my taste right now is pretty diverse and open.

My taste right now is stil evolving, but only because I find more stuff to like, I don't really grow out of anything, If I loved it 5 years ago, I still love it now.
