One glance at the top 100 tabs
on Ultimate Guitar makes it clear that rock and metal aren't the only genres that our visitors love. But our news features and weekly polls only ever focus on heavy guitar-laden tracks. What's going on?
Don't worry - we're not going to be shuffling our focus on from hard rock and metal in the news section. Nevertheless, it got us thinking: how experienced are our readers in other areas of the music world?
You're a musician, and will have plenty of knowledge about other types of music like pop, hip hop and electronic - and that's just for starters. Readers will often comment on their love for records by folk like Depeche Mode
, Florence + the Machine
and many others - and that's probably the tip of the iceberg.
That's why this week's question is:
What is the best non-rock album ever?
The field is wide open on this one, and anything could happen in the results.
Just post your nomination in the comments below, and up vote others that you agree with. The top 10 nominations for the best albums will appear in a list this Friday.
Remember, by non-rock we mean anything that isn't rock, metal, industrial, or anything else we wouldn't normally cover. You get the drift. Good luck!
