Why I listen to music? Honestly I have no better reason other than I just love music as an art form. I liked it as a kid and my appreciation of it has done nothing but increased over the years.

I listen to almost everything that I've had a chance to check out, but my favorite type of music is late 70's/early 80's punk, post-punk and new-wave. This would include everything from The Clash to The Minutemen, The Fall, Public Image Ltd., New Order, The Jam, Talking Heads, so on and so forth. I like the direct and down-to-earth approach of these genres and the passion/sincerity that you can hear. Punk is great if I'm feeling political or want to get pumped-up, post-punk is great for something more artsy and creative, and new-wave is great for color and pure pop-catchiness.

Favorite bands at this point are The Mekons and The Fall.

i listen to music as an alternative to silence.

my preferred style is anything that has a tangible level of intensity and experimentalism, something that does more than just go through the motions.

Pretty much because I enjoy it The technical aspects, how decent songs are made, and put together... Just a good chillout as well as being enjoyable.

Going through my collection I would have to say i am a jazz man, or electronic... Just experimentation with both. But listen to a lot outside those genres of course.

Maybe, Metalossama, you'll like to hear that I started with heavy metal/hardcore/goth/death metal before getting into... I don't know, "The Beach Boys."

Something you might not want to hear is that I consider Metal and all ten billion incarnations of it (or is it the other way around?) a stepping stone. I got into more diverse and complex music as a breath of fresh air from metal and such.

Honestly metal is diverse and complex, but I find the stories and characters of anything but such angry sounding music - and I can relate better - to anything metal ever gave me. I was in grade school/early high-school then, and it made sense to me then, but issues are different now that I'm a man.

So I listen to "Pet Sounds" because I've lived what Brian Wilson has talked about, but don't ever pin me down to one music style.

If you've read all that and are now on this line, know that I would like to go back to listening to metal. There's something still for me there : ) But we all know that I'll be quoted and flamed at for what I said above.

Music is for stimulation. Also for fellowship. It can bring hated enemies together.

My style? Well most of what I play (as in instrument playing) is bluesy or deeply cultural, like Eastern or Middle Eastern type stuff. I like my music loose as a goose, no perfect playing or carefully orchestrated pieces

I appreciate all good music. It relaxes me while pumping me up at the same time. Strange yet incredible. I have always been especially moved by late 60's and 70's classic rock, as well as prog rock and jazz-rock. Frankly the labels bug me...if you feel it, it's good!
