Go ahead. Berate me on how I'm copying User:T3canolis's forum. I really don't care anyway. As a young adult I am at a stage in which I am ravenously searching for new music that I can listen to, but it's become relatively difficult with the literal legions of artists out there and not knowing how they sound and/or which one to choose. So, in an effort to counteract such stifling indecisiveness and confusion, I have chosen to be very unoriginal by copying T3canolis's brilliant idea and using it to my advantage so I can listen to what you guys recommend whenever I get the chance. But, before any of that, here's an insight of what I don't want:

  1. No trap.
  2. No metalcore/deathcore.
  3. No symphonic black metal.
  4. No pop-punk.
  5. No country music.
  6. No Americana.
  7. No smooth jazz.
  8. Keep the 60s music to a minimum, please.
  9. No vaporwave.
  10. No J-pop or K-pop.
  11. No Bollywood music.
  12. No banda.
  13. No anime opening songs.
  14. And for the love of God, NO POP.

Anything else is pretty much fine by me.


Now that I have specified what I want and don't want, you can suggest certain songs, certain albums, or certain artists for me to listen to below. I will make certain songs red to show that I've already listened to it in the past but will rate it anyway, and blue if I have listened to and rated your suggestion. Here's an example...

  1. The Sun Smells Too Loud - Mogwai
  2. Fingertips - Emiliana Torrini
  3. Random Suggested Song - Random Suggested Artist

Suggestions start below this sentence. Also, whenever you make a list of suggestions, specify that it was your suggestions (for instance, "===<insert name here>'s Suggestions===") so I can just know. Ok, then. Start shootin'.

Nerd42's suggestions[edit]

1. Music by someone with whom I am not affiliated in any way because I am completely unaffiliated with myself, so you can be sure that I am not biased in any way

2. Alexander Hamilton. Dude, he has a rap battle with Aaron Burr! I'm not even kidding!

3. Neal Morse rules. Neal Morse and Mike Portnoy are the greatest musical collaboration since Lennon and McCartney.

XY007's suggestions[edit]

Stuffs with guitars in 'm[edit]

  • Anything by Dream Theater [2], but I particularly recommend Metropolis, Pt. 1. =
Clarification: All of Images and Words, Metropolis Pt. 2, Octavarium (complete with 24-minute-long title track!) and if you just want some of their best tracks, try Breaking the Fourth Wall: a live album that brings together their best material. Icons-flag-au.png Operator XY - (Conversal :: Editations - 7,284 and counting!) 22:52, 2 Octodest 2016 (UTC)
  • They Might Be Giants: Their self-titled album, Flood, John Henry, Mink Car, Apollo 18.
  • Linkin Park - Hybrid Theory, Meteora and What I've Done, the latter being the only decent track off Minutes to Midnight. Oh, and Living Things as well.
  • XTC - Waxworks: Some Singles 1977-1982 and its companion Beeswax: Some B-Sides 1977-1982. These British guys deserve to be better known.
  • Slash with Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators (any of their work)
  • Ministry - Psalm 69: The Way To Succeed and The Way To Suck Eggs (not actually brvtal, despite what you hear).

Stuffs with synths and samples in 'm[edit]

  • Depeche Mode's first 3 albums: Speak & Spell, A Broken Frame and Construction Time Again. Just testing your dislike of 80s music there.
  • Why Try Harder - The Greatest Hits of Fatboy Slim
  • Something you will probably like a lot more than any of this: Since I Left You by the Avalanches. The whole album. It's built out of sampling. They're not even known very well in their own country, which is a shame. Icons-flag-au.png Operator XY - (Conversal :: Editations - 7,284 and counting!) 06:52, 20 Novelniver 2016 (UTC)

I'm sorry, good luck. There's so much more I wanted to put. I tried to keep the tastes relatively eclectic, and pick albums that have a clear identity very early, but that can still all be enjoyed in full, rather than being an anthology of shit they wrote. --Silent Penguin 16:58, 1 Novelniver 2016 (UTC)

=Dan-ny's Suggestions[edit]

  • Double bass by gorillaz

danny!Text 09:01, 29 Octodest 2017 (UTC)


  1. Live album. The song "Old Folks Boogie" is about my wife and I, except we aren't in an old folks home., Off our rockers, acting crazy. And with the right medications, we won't be lazy. Old folks boogie, down on the farm, Wheelchairs, they was locked arm in arm"
  2. the right spelling for the right nationality



  • "4'33" by John Cage. Anti-suggestion made by XY007. ... Let's just say that this song has a special place in my heart because it's the very first song that I learned how to play. I typically like to play it right in the middle of class when I have literally nothing else to do. It's such an effortless song; I've gotten so good at it that I never seem to be doing anything!
  • "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen. Suggestion that I have listened to extensively in the past (for the past 10 or 11 years to be a little bit more precise) by User:Felis Lupis. CHILDHOOD ANTHEM. That's all I gotta say. Totally biased, I know.
  • Music Has The Right To Children by Boards of Canada. It's-as-if-you-know-me-a-bit-too-well suggestion made by User:Island Monkey. A prime example of the epitome of downtempo at its finest. This is, by far, one of the best albums I have ever heard. In fact, it made me consider Geogaddi to be a less better album upon finishing it (but then I remembered how Geogaddi was the darkest and most unreal and most paranoia-inducing listening experience I ever had, added on to the fact that the song "Sunshine Recorder" changed my life, so I quickly withdrew my opinion). From what I could interpret among the dense layers of astral sounds and manipulated samples, and without referring to the internet for any potential meanings, MHTRTC seems to create an even denser narrative of curiosity and introspection, both concepts of which can take you far beyond this world (which is what this album certainly does). I will add this album to my CD collection pretty soon when I make my journey to Amoeba. So amazing, the experince...
  • "Eyebrow" by Phoenecia. Eyes-rolling-back suggestion made by User:Imploding Hive. Hauntingly dystopian and industrial... it echoed throughout my skull and sent my imagination into overdrive. If this is what Aphex Twin would have done to soundtrack our ethereal nightmares of twisted realities, this is probably what it would sound like. Add that on to the fact that it is a good 7:22 long and makes it more than just an endlessly echoing song... It becomes a vivid experience. Images of a bleak and increasingly futuristic reality invaded my thoughts, and from there on I knew that this song (which also reminded me a bit of the introduction to Dark Side of the Moon) would capture my restless and scarily vivid imagination without ever loosening its grip. 2001 was a great year for electronic music!
  • Mezzanine album by Massive Attack. Amazingly excellent suggestion made by User: Island Monkey. I couldn't stop listening. I listened to the entire damn album 3 times! I honestly think this album is synonymous with secks in the best way possible. I really do. The dark, haunting, sensual, and heavy sounds of this album are absolutely unforgettable, relaxing, and enlightening (not to mention arousing). This is one of the absolute best and most original albums I have ever heard, hands down, and I now know which album should go next in my vinyl record collection. Just... wow. Speechless.
  • AmeriKKKa's Most Wanted by Ice Cube. Old-school suggestion made by User:Island Monkey. FUCKING BETTER THAN NWA'S STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON! I met Ice Cube (oh, I was strolling through Downtown LA on an errand), and it was unreal. Ice Cube is a legend, and I'm glad he's introducing the N word to Brits like Island Monkey (but I hear it every day). Anyway, this album reminds me of the language I hear every goddamn day in school and in my neighborhood but this is absolutely the best hip-hop/rap album I've ever heard so far. The beats are raw, assaulting, and loud, and Ice Cube's tenaciously flowing angry lyrics complement them perfectly. Makes me appreciate west coast rap more.


  • Octavarium by Dream Theater. Suggestion made by User:XY007. Meticulous. Long too. But it was worth it. Only reason why this got a 9 was because I could only headbang to "Panic Attack."
  • Built On Glass by Chet Faker. Suggestion made by by some penguin I met at the Aquarium of the Pacific. A beautiful and very soulful album that is so pleasant on the ears. I heard his name thrown around here and there, but I never thought about looking into him. What initially struck me was the fact that this guy takes James Blake's work and refines it, creating a far more pristine and focused sound with mellower and more natural-sounding vocals that complement each other. Moreover, this combination ensures that there will never be a dull moment in this album. Every song could have been its own single, which definitely shows that Chet really put his mind to this rather than tossing in a bunch of filler. Only reasons why this masterful debut album didn't get a 10? My eyes didn't roll back in amazement and my shoulders didn't twitch in mischievous pleasure. I'm still gonna remember this album though. It's relatively unforgettable.
Try Lockjaw and Work EPs, which featured other artists alongside Chet. It was quite similar, except perhaps more dancey. Icons-flag-au.png Operator XY - (Conversal :: Editations - 7,284 and counting!) 00:32, 15 Arply 2017 (UTC)
  • Endtroducing..... by DJ Shadow. Suggestion that I've listened to before made by Ye Olde Tribe Elder Seppy. "You've got an organ going there, no wonder the sound has so much body. Aaaaaaahhhhhhh!!! Trip hop!!! I am dewm'd!!! Anyway, this was a major milestone for me in terms of my neverending quest for good music (because music-lovers can never get enough good music; it's just like how Europe could never get enough of the world's resources during the era of colonialism) because it opened me up to the vast world of trip hop and downtempo. Endtroducing, in essence, was what challenged my perceptions and dispositions of music to a near-unfathomable extent, and from then on I knew that I would not listen to music the exact same way again. Did it blow my mind? Of course. Did it take me to another otherworldly realm? Eh, almost.
  • "In Repair" by Our Lady Peace. Nostalgic suggestion by User:Imploding Hive. This song took me way back. I haven't heard any kind of music similar to this song (listen to the opening song of the show Clone High by Abandoned Pools and you'll see what I mean) in over a decade, and hearing this mellow and melodic and somewhat comforting song reminded me of playing in the apartment, where my mother would play 00s music like this. It also has a distinct warmth to the sound, a warmth reminiscent of the late 90s and early 00s that is unforgettable and inherently nostalgic. Who knows... maybe I've heard this song before.
  • Live at Roxy & Elsewhere album by Frank Zappa. Brilliant suggestion made by User:Gruntled. Where has this album been? Really really good album that I could only describe as Led Zeppelin and psychedelic 60s shopping mall music having a beautiful baby. Zappa's clever lyricism and interchangeable vocals provide a totally awesome listening experience when accompanied by the extensive amounts of warped guitar riffs, brass instruments, and a semi-complex drum signature. I'm seriously wondering about how I've never heard of this album, because I really missed out on incredible music like this.


  • Commune by Goat. Suggestion made by that one villain from Batman played by Danny DeVito. The past is inside the present. What I seriously loved about this album was that it sounds like it could've been released 50 years ago. Heck, if I were a young college kid living in San Francisco in the 60s I would definitely be playing this in my Volkswagen Minibus during my annual trips (not acid trips) to Woodstock, picking up hitchhikers along the way that are going to the same destination as I am. I really like the experimental use of various instruments from around the world that come together to create a true psychedlic experience.
  • "What I've Done" by Linkin Park. Suggestion that I have listened to in the past (and did not need to listen to now to give it a rating in spite of the fact that the last time I listened to this song was roughly over seven years ago since I listened to it so much when I was young) made by User:XY007. You're right, XY. In retrospect, "What I've Done" is indeed the only decent track from Minutes to Midnight. My mother used to play the entire album to me so I could go to sleep. Looking back, I guess I now know the reason why. However, "What I've Done" seems to really stand out from the rest of the album (besides the fact that it's a single) because... well, it just sounded better than every other song. Only downside is that it's repetitive.
Of course it's repetitive. It's Linkin Park. In any case, the bit about using it to go to sleep is a bit ironic when you consider that the first track is called Wake. Icons-flag-au.png Operator XY - (Conversal :: Editations - 7,284 and counting!) 10:22, 27 Jeremy 2017 (UTC)
  • Sunbather by Deafheaven. Suggestion made by User:Island Monkey. "Blackgaze. IT'S A THING." I was astounded by how these guys made black metal and shoegaze go together in such a cohesive way. The ferocity and speed of black metal with the astral and echoey droning of shoegaze (both genres are typically atmospheric) combine to create a sound worthy of a subculture. However, it did raise a concern for me (no, that's not why I gave this an 8. I wished the songs were a little shorter and less similar to each other, and I expected a better ending to the album). Although I have nothing against the way they sound, what concerned me was the fact that they brought black metal to a more mainstream audience. Thankfully, black metal did not become mainstream as a result, but it was kinda cutting it too close.
  • "Professor Nutbutter's House of Treats" by Primus. Suggestion made by User:Imploding Hive. HEAVY. AGGRESSIVE. HARD. weird. This song is all out. Every part of this song holds nothing back. The bass is maddeningly heavy and fast, asserting your attention immediately. The drums are ferocious and loud, echoing throughout the song as the deranged heartbeat of it. And the guitar is pretty darn metal at that. As much as I enjoyed all those components, however, the subject matter of the lyrics of the song kinda clashed with all the brute monstrosity of the instruments, in my opinion. Of course, those lyrics were easily overshadowed by the roaring intensity of the music, so that is what saved this song for me.
  • The entire material of Crystal Castles. Suggestion made by User:Island Monkey. This music must've spawned a completely new culture. Although about 80% of their songs sound similar to each other, Crystal Castles is a group I regret not noticing. I realized that I have heard their music many times before but never took notice of it. Um... yeah. I really don't know how to describe it, other than the fact that I like this sort of music now. A bit disorienting at times ,though, but it adds to the excitement ("Doe Deer" and "Love and Caring"). Nice.
  • Music of Another Present Era by Oregon. Suggestion made by User:Gruntled. Pretty trippy. This album has Hindu influence spread all over it, and Oregon utilized the sitar in their music seamlessly and effectively, providing a pleasant listening experience. This album reflects the overall creativity of jazz groups in a single album, although the song "Children of God" is literally the stuff of nightmares and mental breakdowns. All in all, I would deem it as an essential jazz album.
  • Visions of Emerald Beyond by John McLaughlin and the Mahavishnu Orchestra. Suggestion made by User:Gruntled. A very eclectic album with a lot of psychedelic guitar riffs and a crazy super-complicated time signature that was all over the place! Really cool.


  • Radian Futura by Upsilon Acrux. Suggestion made by User:Imploding Hive. You're lucky I listen to Meshuggah.
  • "Basscadet" by Autechre. Suggestion made by User:Island Monkey. For the technology they had at the time, this is pretty good. But, because of the technology they had at the time, it doesn't sound a bit better than it could be. It sounded too choppy (literally), which seemed to lower my listening experience a bit. But the rest of the synths were really good, and I can definitely see why they're somewhat associated with Hexagon Sun.
  • One Size Fits All album by Frank Zappa. Suggestion made by User:Gruntled. Groovy. To be honest, I wanted to stop listening to the album by the middle of the outrageously long first song, "Inca Roads," but I told myself to keep up. Things got smoother and groovier by the second or third song, and the vast array of musical influences makes it a diverse listening experience. A title weird, though.
    • You think I wouldn't recommend something weird? You must admit, the musical composition is meticulous and incredible. Or not. LAR Adriator-Gruntled.png(kaizum me)Plant2.png 23:00, 29 Ergust 2015 (UTC)
      • It's a little weird for my overall taste, but it's still a good album. 4x4=12 (talk) 23:23, 29 Ergust 2015 (UTC)
        • Differences in taste are what make it all so interesting. I can hate a piece of music, but still understand why some folks like it. The reverse is true as well. LAR Adriator-Gruntled.png(kaizum me)Plant2.png 01:31, 30 Ergust 2015 (UTC)
  • "Codona" by Colin Walcott, Don Cherry, and Nana Vasconcelos. Suggestion made by User:Gruntled. Could be better with some things taken here and there. This would've been a really relaxing world-influenced jazz song, had the flute been left out. It did annoy me at times, but the time and effort pit into this song and most likely the album it is in is very audible here.


  • To Pimp a Butterfly by Kendrick Lamar. Suggestion made by User:Island Monkey. Well... not exactly what I expected from a rapper from Compton. I mean, it's an alright hip-hop album (especially compared to other hip-hop albums released this year that's total garbage [except Dr. Dre's new album Compton]), and the messages Kendrick convey are great, but what kind of set me off from it was the fact that there was a little bit of RnB and big band music that sometimes didn't go all too well with the vibe of the album.


  • Passenger by Mnemic. Suggestion made by Chilly Willy. I had to force myself to listen to this because I could not stand the vocals. First off, before I go into detail, I just want to say that the song "Pigf*ck" is an atrocity; singing with metalcore vocals over a thrash-metal drum beat!? Anyways, I was hoping that an explosive audio experience was awaiting after hearing the explosive intro song, but those expectations were met with metalcore vocals. I know that Mnemic can't really be placed into a specific category, since they combine several different metal genres (if the vocals were replaced with someone older who didn't utilize metalcore vocals then I wouldn't have cared at all, and the album would have definitely sounded better), but even such a brilliant and cohesive fusion of genres couldn't compensate for those metalcore vocals. Adding on to that, I can certainly commend the other musicians that, y'know, played the guitars and bass and drums.They did a very good job. As for the vocalist? Can't stand those vocals.
  • "Cakes" by Max Tundra. Suggestion made by User:Imploding Hive. Eeeeeeehhhhhhh...? Some small part of me wants to like it a little bit, but this song is a bit... I dunno... I guess I found the arrangement of the song to be a bit obnoxious. I do like songs that are all over the place, and this song is indeed all over the place, just not the good kind of all over the place for me.

I wasn't too much into it myself either. Imploding Hive (talk) 02:40, 21 Octodest 2016 (UTC)


Why Try Harder by Fatboy Slim. Suggestion made by User:XY007. While I may be a sucker for music constructed solely from sampling and audio manipulation... I really could not get past the fact that every song sounded like it could be used for a show that would be much akin to In Living Color for preteens. The songs were just too happy sounding and almost a bit cheesy too. While I can commend Fatboy Slim for creating that distinctive "live action 90s TV show for preteens" sound that would be an instant nostalgia-bomb for Generation Y, well... It just doesn't fit into my taste too well. Oddly enough, however, I really like DJ Shadow. Weird.



  • "One Hundred Years" by The Cure. Suggestion made by User:Island Monkey. Well, now you know how much I don't like 80s music. I don't blame you for trying to see just how much, though. That song was pretty much blaring into my ears.
  • Mr. Bungle by Mr. Bungle. Suggestion made by User:Island Monkey. "Confusing the shit out of metal fans since 1991." Okay. First off, I would like to acknowledge the audacity of these guys for putting out highly experimental music like this, and I can see that this is where their appeal comes from. However, this was by far the most disorienting "metal" album I listened to, which to me sounded like a combination of Sublime, Reel Big Fish, Alice In Chains, Slayer, and Queen. To some this would sound like a great combination. However, in the end, it was just too zany and all over the place to the extent that they make Primus look like a band for intellectual people. Also, the vocals... :(

Independent dance music. Also, I'm having so much fun with this forum. 2+2=5 SPEAK TO ME, ILLOGIAN! Past accounts of sodomy RAVENOUS AND RUTHLESS CAPITALISM The greatest article in the history of Illogia! 21:00, 30 Ergust 2015 (UTC)


Not hardly never having to go to the hospital any more, most likely, I sit here watching ‘’’Rick and Morty’’’, smoking one of the group containing the last cigarettes I smoke, and frankly enjoying it, I can’t lie, so I will go on to mutilate this sentence grammatically by way of mention that until recently, I’ve had recurring acute appendicitis for the last thirty years (damn, this coffee is good), and furthermore, I’m composing a piece and may cheat by way of mastering, so the stuff currently uploaded is garbage. Phew. That sentence was laborious brainwise. Huh. Artemis Pebdani... interesting alias. Nonetheless, Millernarian prophetic cultists continue to infiltrate American society, injecting all manner of ... hey, it’s 5:20... an hour past 4:20... think I ought to self medicate, legally of course.

I'm seeing that word a lot, relating to some artists listed here. LAR Adriator-Gruntled.png(kaizum me)Plant2.png 23:57, 30 Ergust 2015 (UTC)

Why is a cat purple?[edit]

It's not. In any case, I'm just wondering about Sophia's recommendations. The first and third songs I don't know, the second song I messed up the lyrics to in Year 6, and have been trying to forget it existed.
Also, some more recommendations that don't fit anywhere else: Identity - The Crystalline Effect, Nils Official Mix Rick Astley and Avicii: Never Gonna Wake You Up, Why Try Harder, The Greatest Hits of Fatboy Slim, and 4'33" by John Cage.

4'33" by John Cage.

These recommendations are different, because I want 2+2=5 not to listen to them. Icons-flag-au.png Operator XY - (Conversal :: Editations - 7,284 and counting!) 09:44, 26 Serpeniver 2016 (UTC)


Does "American" in "No American country music" refer just to the United States or to the entire landmass of North and South America? CG098 (talk ₪‎ contribs) 02:36, 29 Octodest 2017 (UTC)

There is no particular genre or style of music that could be explicitly or definitively labeled as "South American country music," smart alec. 2+2=5 SPEAK TO ME, ILLOGIAN!

Are you willing to say that there is Canadian country (not folk) music? 2+2=5 SPEAK TO ME, ILLOGIAN! Past accounts of sodomy RAVENOUS AND RUTHLESS CAPITALISM The greatest article in the history of Illogia! 03:54, 29 Octodest 2017 (UTC)\
Yes. CG098 (talk ₪‎ contribs) 04:03, 29 Octodest 2017 (UTC)
Yeah, there's Canadians making "country" or "country and western", whatever they call it. While I'm here, I want to mention a dude named Lyle Lovett. He has /texas roots, for sure, but he incorporates jazz, swing, rock and some pretty good lyrics into his sets that shows skill and soul. I especially love when he works with /francine Reed, an amazing blues and gospel singer, and his large band. Cheers! LAR Adriator-Gruntled.png(kaizum me)Plant2.png 05:54, 29 Octodest 2017 (UTC)
