What are you listening to right now?
But in all seriousness, instead of waiting for music to be added to the forum name I thougt I'd make a music discussion thread that (hopefully) goes well beyond the average and fairly uninteresting youtube link spam.
What I'd like to know is what kinds of music you listen to and why? What do you look for in music?
Personally I listen mostly to metal, (classic) rock and prog with some pop and classical added in left and right.
I also tend to gravitate towards older music, looking through my collection over half of the albums I own are older than I am.
The most important thing I look for though is a certain raw quality of the music, either through vocals (not necessarily grunts, Layne Staley, Kurt Cobain, Johnny Cash, JJ Cale etc are also amazing) or a good guitar/bass/drums. I think that a large part of why I generally prefer older music is that it's not overproduced, with just about everything I hear from radio or such there seem to be so much producing being done that there's just no life left in the music.
I would say that I also prefer relatively simple music but with Camel, Yes, Genesis, Opeth, Porcupine Tree, Pink Floyd and more prog in my collection I don't think that still goes.
Oh yeah and I pretty much hate electronic beeps, same issue as the overproduced commercial crap, there's just no life in the music anymore.
