Would anyone care to recommend some top quality "classic" R&B albums?

Default Band Recommendations

So I have a new favorite band, at the moment, the Black Dahlia Murder. The one thing I love about them that is that there are no breakdowns. I absolutely despise breakdowns. They're too slow, and they're very overrated.

Anyways, I'm having trouble finding bands that play like this, with no breakdowns. It seems like every new band I hear about is just another bunch of scene kids who think that deathcore and breakdowns are the s**t. I mean, I don't mind a bridge where the tempo is slowed up a bit, but not so slow that I can walk around the block and the breakdown still not be over. (Exaggerated, but you get the point.)

Let me use the popular song "Pray for Plagues" by Bring me the Horizon, a decent example:

1. 00:00 to 00:24 at fast tempo (I'm not good at determining bpm)
2. Drums and Bass significantly slow down for 00:24 to 00:33
3. 00:33 to 01:00 at same tempo as no. 1, pretty much.
4. 01:00 to 01:40 Z0MG 3P1C BR3AKD0WN!! (not really)
5. 01:40 to 01:58 same as above, but Guitar goes off and does it's own thing.
6. 01:58 to 02:13 same as no. 1.
7. 02:13 to 02:34 bridge, moderate tempo
8. 02:34 to 02:49 chorus, slow tempo
9. 02:49 to 03:02 repeat chorus, in an 3P1C BR3AKD0WN!! fashion, minus the double bass.
10. 03:02 to 03:24 same as no. 1.
11. 03:24 to 03:58 moderate break.
12. 03:58 to 04:22 3P1C BR3AKD0WN!! ending with fast double bass, slow guitar.

To me, this is pretty absurd. This song, and many others like it, have more tempo changes than a Rush song of the same length!

So, now that my point is made, can anyone tell me of anything, anything that's like the Black Dahlia Murder? Please?

Just starting to get into a lot of jazz music.

Would anyone recommend some good jazz guitarists?

The bands i like at the moment are;

-The Killers
-Kaiser Chiefs
-Biffy Clyro
-Franz Ferdinand (well not really a favourite band)
-Cut off your Hands

Any recomendations?
You could try:

- Foals
- The Strokes
- Julian Casablancas
- Arctic Monkeys
- The Offspring

Sorry for the rest of you, not particularly in-tune with the R&B or Jazz genres. Blues maybe.

I'm looking for an album similar to Finntroll's Visor Om Slutet. It's a weird, neo-folk-ish kind of sound with a medieval kinda twist

I've decided to try and get into Rufus Wainwright, as I've heard a bunch of his songs on a few official compilations I've got and liked them all. Anyone know of an album I should start with in particular?
