If I told you what I'm listening to you'd run away with your ears covered. I have a very particular taste that is generally not appreciated.

I get sucked into this every once in a while and have to stick it on repeat.
Tonight was an accident relative to the date, but certainly a good track for Cinco de Mayo.
(I don't listen to much music, most of which is either parody or vocal-less).
that music videos pretty neat (I love the animation) that songs meh for me personally apart from the part with the drums which I quite like.

Its not exactly obscure as hell, its just a part of an older SMT game's sound track and not titled something like 'Battle 2', which shows up more often. Its not too far off in views from some more recent tracks from the same company, actually :)
FWIW, the song's called An Honor Befitting That Name just about everywhere you can find it. I prefer Take the Shield, Raise the Spear anyway. Good music to kill a living genesis to.

Replying to this post here, I am SO disappointed by Q's ost. After the excellent mixes in the P3 movies (and as an EO fan) I was looking forward to the game, but ultimately decided to pass. Better music might have convinced me the other way.

In a fit of hypocrisy, I'm listening to the Xenoblade X soundtrack. Right this second it's Don't Worry, the robot flight theme. A lot of people are complaining about the ost, but I quite like it.

Ooh, haven't heard that one yet in the lp. Sounds like a final boss-ish theme though.

How are the p3 movies, by the way? i haven't tried to look for anything related to them, since I had no idea if they were any good and heard conflicting opinions on p4 the animation.
Unless I'm remembering wrong it's the final boss theme all right. Though, it does sample the main menu theme.

The movies are quite good, way better than the P4 anime. That is, unless you like the S Link characters. They're all extras in this.

I like most anything.


* Morning jacket's new album is not good. I could not finish it on Rhapsody (yes, I do legal music). I don't really think they play their instruments very well, and they sound like they are wailing.
* Mumford & Sons' new song Tompkins Square Park is the real deal. The rest of the album has some good spots but nothing that sustains the strong mood from that first track.
* Ciara's new album is the typical stuff from her. Meh.
* Modest mouse's new album isn't as good as the old stuff.
* California Nights' "Best Coast" album is hilariously dramatic middle-aged pop. I enjoyed it.
* Electronic music is overloaded right now. Something for everybody. I guess I like electronic music that maintains some kind of cohesive theme and rhythm. Some of this stuff right now has 10 or 11 different diversions going on that you really can't bob your head to it. The whole point of electronic music, for me, is so that when I am programming I can get into my zone and just pound something out. If I need to debug, I switch to Baroque music (which if you don't know, is basically Crusader Kings music… the real stuff!).
* Rap can be good for programming.
* Most Country sucks. Some rich white guy trying to convince me that he's some cowboy from the dusty road that likes his booze and farm women or something. I don't know. It just sounds fake. And if it's just supposed to be storytelling and a soundtrack for the southern experience (or fantasy), I guess I'm not meant to get it. I guess you could say the same thing for a lot of rap, but the beat is better!


I will listen to albums looking for good tracks, but it's rare these days to get an album that is good from front to back. Like Pearl Jam from back in the day, or Dave Matthews' old stuff, or Blues Traveler's "Four."

I cant argue with you about modern country its pretty much turned into pop music their just pretending to be not like real country were people value things like family and so on.

Built To Spill's latest album Untethered Moon has been rotating in my daily drive since it came out a couple weeks ago.  I think it's some of their best work.  Living Zoo, in particular is great.  Can't really mention Living Zoo without also mentioning Never Be The Same

Bitpop and chiptunes, mostly. Anything with singing in it tend to be very basic on a melodical level and thus bores the crap out of me. I prefer instrumental music where the musician is the focus, not the singer. Signing and lyrics just don't interest me. Musical theory though...now that's the stuff.


And believe it or not, bitpop and chiptunes have a lot of that, because due to the restraints they've put on themselves with the sound, they have to be creative with the melody, music and arrangements. So that's why I like it. Yeah, I'm a bit nerdy like that ^^

that all sounds cool personally what I listen to is whatever stuff I find on YouTube I end up liking I don't really like to look for things by genera personally. edit I totally didn't forget to put my actual reply in this and redo it 0_0
