Since the opposite thread was a hate fueled trollfest I decided to make the better thread.

So, what band/artist do you think are intresting.

The Fall are interesting.

I'm diggin Periphery right now, with or without vocals.

Intronaut is definitely another band to check out!

Early Biffy Clyro, first 3 albums are beautiful, now they're turning indie-pop.

Listening to Congratulations by MGMT again. I really like it/ find it interesting.

As far as most interesting.. it depends on my mood. No one in particular.
Listen to jazz, it'll make you a better guitar player.


Whatever you do, stay creative

Interesting? probably Opeth for their use of dissonant chords and non conventional songwriting. Also Rush for accomplishing what a 5 person band does, but with only 3 people. Tool, their music just flows.
#10
it's hard to say which band is the "best" or the most "unique" because of all the bands out there and all the differing opinions. i myself usually listen to Punk so one would expect me to pick The Clash or Blink-182 or Green Day which are some of my favorite bands. However, the most "interesting" band i would say is Linkin Park. they're the only thing close to rap i'll listen to, but it's really amazing stuff

I find that every time I listen to Bear Vs. Shark's Terrorhawk I hear something new. It's not 'progressive', it's not 'artsy', and it's not 'indie'. It's just simple music that in my opinion is perfect in composition. It is NOT accessible at all. The vocals are to be appreciated not for their trained sound (they sound terrible) but for the unsubtle hints of emotion in the way he speaks, the way he yells, and the way he pains to sing. The guitar and bass are not be appreciated for technical prowess (there is very little) but for creativity. The drums are essential to the music, and if you listen closely you'll hear a lot of technically satisfying bits.

I recommend the album to anyone. Always listen from start to finish.

Pink Floyd - The instrumentation is far from complex, but the harmonic content works on dozens of levels for me.

Ok Go - They're pretty much only known for the awesome that is their music videos, but I rather like the strange, mildly-avant garde style they take musically as well.

Jethro Tull - Take what I said about Pink Floyd, and amplify it about ten times.

Jeff Beck - Ladies and gentlemen, there's a reason Jesus doesn't play guitar. It's because if he did, he'd get depressed that even though he's Jesus and all that shizzle, Jeff Beck's still better than he is.

Bruce Springsteen - Beyond the interesting instrumentation provided by a horn section, a lead saxophone player, a drummer, a secondary percussionist, four guitarists, a bassist, an organ player, an accordion player, a harmonica player, a synth player, two piano players, and a singer, the storytelling aspect of Bruce's songwriting always gets my mind working.

Rush - Mainly beating Fassa to the punch, but admittedly there aren't many other places to go for verbose progressive rock with kickass instrumentation.

The Beatles - I'll just say to look at my avatar and not bore you beyond that.

Kansas - Rush meets Jethro Tull. Rough, but working analogy for someone lazy like me.

Frank Zappa - Frank is, as far as I'm concerned, one of the coolest, strangest, funniest, smartest, silliest, and most brilliant musicians, lyricists and composers to come out of rock so far. Will better come along? Time will tell, but for now, nearly 20 years after his death, he still has enough unreleased material that he's releasing an average of two albums a year.

Peter Frampton - Too many people just know him for Comes Alive!, Fingerprints is one of my favourite albums, and really shows the skill of someone too often just tossed aside as a 70's pop/rock singer.

The Trans-Siberian Orchestra - Imaginative neoclassical! I like Yngwie, but he can get pretty bland at times. That barely happens for me with TSO.

Queen - It's Queen. The fact you want an explanation clearly shows you don't listen to enough Queen. Go listen to some Queen.

Weird Al - Say what you will, but anyone with the ability to segue the styles of Green Day, The Beatles, Michael Jackson, Aerosmith, showtunes, polka medleys of contemporary hits, Nirvana, Frank Zappa, Eminem, Rage Against The Machine, Queen, The Doors, The Beach Boys, and still have time to out-Devo Devo is far beyond "interesting".

This is what never ceases to amaze me about Pink Floyd. Their music is so incredibly simple and overwhelmingly complex at the same time. It's incredible.

Opeth - The composition of their songs are intriguing and just sound so captivating.

Rush - They can make odd time signatures flow so well.

Buckethead - The fact that he has made music in so many genres and can play so many instruments.

Symphony X - Their mixture of symphonic elements with prog metal and power metal is just awesome to me.

Rhapsody of Fire - The very heavy symphonic elements mixed with Power Metal and a Story makes their albums a very interesting experience to me.

Dream Theater, Symphony X.

Neutral Milk Hotel. Favorite band of all time, Jeff Mangum's lyrics are brilliant

I think Harry Nilsson is very versatile, and unpredictable. I'm surprised he isn't more well known.

Alexi Laiho in late 90s early 2000s was amazingly accurate and fast. Very unique songwriting.
