I noticed i haven't listened to "rock" music too much recently, i only play it. I listen to Bob Marley and Michael Jackson a lot (The Thriller album). It's weird. Happen to any of you?
You cool man?

these days its either a grinding messy soup of blastbeats or ridiculous attention to guitar. both sects worshipping solely the god of speed. At least for most metal

its getting stagnant which is a good indicator that popularity is going up(as if you didn't notice with the myriad documentaries, cartoons and reality tv shows).

all in all its a good time to take a break from the genre and when the new tide rolls out we can get back to making progress.

hoo-ray!

Well, about a year ago I became increasingly jaded with rock/metal and it really lost its appeal on me. Most of it, no matter how good people insist some specific band/artist is, is dull and predictable to me, with a few exceptions. I listen to almost all jazz and classical now and I enjoy the two genres much more than I do with rock. I also find electronic and ethnic music appealing and would like to include them in my listening habits in the future.

Oddly enough, most of the music that I write for myself is rock oriented.

If rock isn't giving me my buzz, then I've always got Funk Jazz and Blues to fall back on.

I have lots of not-Rock/Metal music to keep me happy when I don't feel like listening to Rock or Metal. Drum & Bass, Jazz, Blues, and Alternative stuff make up most of it.

Opera. I listen to opera and metal; that's all I need unless I'm in a bad mood and I'm looking for something lighter.
#15
Yeah Marley's music has got a soul still unequaled, really moving yet not ear-tearing as noise walls of metal do. Try the different 'Escapes' albums if you feel smooth they work pretty good because the music is pretty inspiring.
I love music, if music would be a girl then I'd date her, until then let's get back on Earth

yeah happened to me.. I usually listen to Zeppelin and Cream and Nirvana and some other harder bands but lately I've been listening to Phish and Grateful Dead and Floyd and more mellow chill out bands.. sometimes it's nice to relax

Happens to all of us at some point.

I listen to jazz, some hip hop, and a little classical.
#19
Definitely. I flip between different genres a lot, but my favorites are (in order):
Classic/prog/psychedelic rock
Blues rock
Metal (math, death, thrash)
Classical/Baroque
Fusion
Jazz

I'll go through a couple months mostly listening to one genre, then to another, etc.

Don't really know why. Maybe from what I've heard its a bit too uplifting and cheerful for me. I'm quite the miserable bastard most of the time...

... and i like it!

BUT NOT EMO!!!

How does one "get into" classical music? Many of the important artists of the genre are long dead and gone, and even then, there is no aural recording of the original musicians playing their compositions. I know I have to choose a rendition of their work, as played by a contemporary of ours, but how do I know which one is good?

Help a brotha' get started on Classical music.

Stop being mean, shorty

Although I'm gonna reiterate. Fantastic, you listen to two larger entities of music outside of rock. Go you, I guess.
#25
^^I see your point. It's not like I know many names of songs or anything, so theres not much point looking at the back of a cd case. I think i started listening to a cd my dad had and put anything i liked on my ipod. Obviously they're all played by modern artists / orchestras.

You could listen to some online radio. And then theres movie soundtracks as well which is probably where you would find anything new.

I got into them through guitar.

It's challenging music, both note wise and feel wise. If you take it in a from a musician's perspective you'll have an easier time.

Take Paganini or Vivaldi for example.

Welcome to the wonderful world of classical

Meh, some genres of classical music are painfully predictable. Practically every other Bach etude I hear sounds like the same phrases in a different order.

As far as music I enjoy outside of rock, I enjoy a lot of folk music and pop music, and I LOVE madrigal music, actually, pretty much all choral music is enjoyable for me.

And of course, death metal

I've been listening to increasing amounts of classical lately, but I still tend to fall back on the blues.
