Dear Libervisioners,

Let's relax and talk a little bit about music. What is your favorite kind of music?

Re: What kind of music you like most?

Well, I like all sort of musics, but especially classical music. I love Bethoven's symphonies and sonatas. :yes:

I like also classical rocks, like Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd, and more recently U2. The only rock I don't like much is the so called TRASH, it's really a trash! :tfou:

Of course I like Brazilian musics, like samba and pop. If there is some thing that Brazil is rich is in its musical diversity, many good singers and compositors. Do you know any Brazilian songs?

Well, that's my oppinion. What's yours?

I like many types of music. If it has a melody and not too much fast repetitive noise (both in some rock and some electronic music) and it's written with love for music instead of love for money, I like it.

I have been a fan of Fool's Garden since I heard "Lemon Tree" for the first time. That must be for about half of my life now :-D .

I recently discovered The Polyphonic Spree. Believe me, you just HAVE to see them in concert.

You've said perfectly! I hate music singers and compositors who only make songs for money! :nonnon:

Ohh, yeah - you've probably thought of something like; "Why on earth does a 15 year old like Black Sabbath?!?!" - well, my parents listen to a lot of this good ol' music, and I grew up upon it -- so I still do... :-D

Re: What kind of music you like most?

My favourite Brazilian band is Sepultura. My taste of music goes into that general direction that band is doing, as well. Here is the factors that will raise the probability of a certain piece of music to be to my liking:

- absence of rythm
- absence of melody
- heavily distorded/overdriven/downtuned guitars
- heaviliy utilised double bass drums
- screaming/growling/burping noises instead of singing
- the sound just being barely different from that of a jet engine on full throttle

My most favourite bands are:
- Napalm Death
- Pro-Pain
- Dying Fetus
- Entombed
- Nasum

Well, I am just the opposite. :-) I like rythm, melody, don't like screaming or jet engines music (which one, Concord, Boeing 707...?) Hey, I am just kidding :-D

Well, I like many different styles like classic (Beethoven, Verdi, Rachmanninoff, Chopin, Mozart and others), soundtracks from films, jazz (Jane Monheit, Laura Fygi) and others like Celine Dion, Mariah Carey, Enya, Pet Shop Boys, Barry White, Andrea Bocelli, Andre Rieu, Sarah Brightman, and many others.

Thank you,
Andr�

How to explain... It's rock. It's flowerpower. It's twenty-something people in robes. It's refreshingly different and at the same time very cliche, in a way.

you can listen to (parts of?) their newest (second) album, but it's in @##@% windows media format :pocontent:

at
www.thepolyphonicspree.com
you will get a pop-up after some clicks, that can play two songs, if you have flash... the whole site is unusable without flash I think :hum:

Flowerpower ?!?? .... in robes ?!?? Do you mean crazy people? Laughing Laughing

Well, I'll have a look at them, or rather, I'll have "a listen" to their song in the site you mentioned. Thanks! :yes:

Incinerator, now I think I know why you use this 'incinerator' nickname...

Your listed reasons above are exactly MY reasons to hate Sepultura... Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing

If you listen Pink Floyd or Led Zeppelin is right the opposite to Sepultura's song:

- full of rythm
- full of melody
- heavy but very melodious guitars
- heavy but very rythmic drums
- screaming hourmoniously with singing
- the sound just being wholy different from a jet engine on full throttle

But, incinerator, I don't mind! You're right to like them and won't blame you, or regard you to make a *wrong* choice. Just don't invite me to their show! Laughing Laughing Laughing
