    I listen to mainly dance and rock I suppose, although i like the odd bit of classical if I feel pretty stressed.

    I'm off to the Download festival at Castle Donington in June, the line up this year is unbelievable:

    Tool
    Guns n Roses
    Metallica
    Alice in Chains
    Cradle of Filth
    Deftones
    Funeral for a Friend
    Hatebreed
    Inme
    Korn
    Prodigy
    Stone Sour
    Trivium

    not a bad line up, I think you would agree (if you like that sort of thing)
    Windows 7 x64 Ultimate Edition, Gigabyte Z77-D3H, Ivy Bridge i7 3770, nVidia GTX480 1.5Gb, 16Gb Corsair 1600MHz, Creative X-Fi, Seagate 500Gb SATA II, DGM 23" Widescreen TFT

    Oh yeah that is a great lineup.

    It would be worth going just to see Metallica and Guns n Roses.

    yeah me too, GnR are still my favourite band. Of course it's an all new line up apart from Axl Rose now, but I am looking forward to seeing what the new guys are like. They are supposedly gonna play loads of new tracks from the forthcoming 'Chinese Democracy' album, can't wait

    I've been a classic metalhead for ever (Terrible Ted and such). But, lately I've been listening to a lot of Country since my wife has taken a liking to it. It seems as if country and rock are merging a bit, and the sound is pretty good.

    But, nothing beets a Haydn Chamber Symphony on a nice long drive!!

    B3D had a "favourite albums thread recently". This was my list.

    A beautiful, beautiful album that still makes my spine tingle. All the more amazing that it was his debut effort.

    DJ Shadow - Endtroducing
    Revolutionary, 100% sampled album. It has this kind of etheral, yet extremely characterful/familiar quality that is still extremely uncommon in electronica, IMHO.

    The Smashing Pumpkins - Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness
    Value for money.

    Stevie Wonder - Songs In The Key Of Life
    Tough to decide between this and Talking Book. A masterpiece - some of it seems a bit trite now but for the time the social commentary was as poignant as the likes of "What's Going On?" etc, with unparalleled musicianship thrown in for good measure.

    The Red Hot Chili Peppers - Blood Sugar Sex Magik
    Lyrical and melodic hooks to match their later releases, while maintaining the raw, funk-rock sound of the 80s stuff. Very well produced and their best album by far.

    Roni Size - New Forms
    Bit of a personal one this as it got me into "intelligent" DnB. Probably the first album I liked that didn't have many "real" musicians in it.

    Jaco Pastorius - Jaco Pastorius
    This said "I am the best bassist in the world by miles and all you other punks can **** my hairy balls". One of musical history's true geniuses (although I think his solo in Weather Report's "Havona" probably tops anything on this album).

    Michael Jackson - Off The Wall
    The album that made disco mainstream, albeit a little too late since the onset of 80s cheese came soon after. Quite sad to look back at it now that he's all ****ed up.

    Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin IV
    Gutted I wasn't around to see them live. This album rocks so damn hard, although I admit I rarely listen to it (something about listening to Zeppelin while seated - doesn't really work).

    Herbie Han**** - Headhunters
    Pretty much defined the Jazz/Funk genre, which several artists then proceeded to **** up. Extremely raw-sounding and tight as hell.

    Some more favourites from recent years - Speak For Yourself (Imogen Heap), S.C.I.E.N.C.E (Incubus), De-Loused in the Comatorium (The Mars Volta), Thirteenth Step (A Perfect Circle), The Vertigo Of Bliss (Biffy Clyro).
    Don't have any genre preference, though I do hate most folk/world music with a passion.

    Everything except eastern music, can't stand it. Mostly Rap and Reggae/Ragga though.
