think the thread title says it all. i'll start:

bryan adams- always thought he had a good voice and was a good songwriter for his genre. always seemed to find a way to tell a nice story in the 4 minute pop song format. went a little too ballad heavy in the early 90's though.

michael bolton- not afraid to admit i like his late 80's/early 90's stuff. well written pop songs with a hint of rock and blue eyed soul. really its his voice though. what an extraordinary voice he has. pure power and emotion. hell if its likeable enough for bob dylan to want to write a song for bolton to sing its good enough for me. too bad in the late 90's he went in a direction i did not like at all and pretty much killed his career in the process. no clue why he though after 6 multiplatinum albums in a row he needed to get a haircut and make softer late 90's r&b music instead of the semi rock/pop motown/soul stuff he was known for

Based on previous discussions on this website, I'm in the minority as a Beastie Boys fan. So much more to them than Fight For Your Right To Party. It's a shame Adam Yauch passed away, he was a true musical genius.

Some of the more out-there jazz I love, like Coltrane Live In Japan or Miles Davis Bitches Brew, is not for everyone. There are plenty of people on this site who love it as much as me, but many who don't. You could say the same thing about Aquarium Rescue Unit. A little too hectic and chaotic for some folks.

I could listen to Ravi Shankar all day long, but that Indian tonality drives some people nuts.

Husker Du /Sugar /Bob Mould solo- Sugar and Bob Mould solo are a bit more accessible but Zen Arcade period Husker Du is definitely an acquired taste

The Feelies-Legendary, hugely influential ,virtually unknown. I love all 5 of their albums.

Blitzen Trapper - One of the best bands from the last ten years IMO. Each album has been better than the last and they are not afraid to attempt different genres but they are indeed a bit quirky.

The Decemberists- There are actually a couple fans of these guys here, but I suspect only a couple. Love them

Robyn Hitchcock- And you thought Syd Barrett was weird. Well meet his self appointed god son. He became more accessible later but his early stuff exemplifies quirky

First one that popped into my head. And I don't really know after all the times I've listened to it whether I like it or not....

My wife is a huge Psychedelic Furs (Richard Butler) fan. I know their radio tunes, but never had an opinion on them either way, however a few years back Richard Butler put out a couple albums with a band called LOVE SPIT LOVE. I was dreading having to go to this show and had only heard one tune by them beforehand. Much to my surprise, these guys rocked pretty hard, had good chops, and wrote some tunes that caught my attention right off the bat. I thoroughly enjoyed myself, though having low expectations going in could have played a part. Even though you may never see these guys again, I think they are worth checking out on youtube.

Good call on Loreena McKennit BrerRabbit. I saw her at the Fox Theater here in Atlanta a few years ago, and it is my wife's favorite concert she has ever seen, period.

I don't know if I would go that far, but it was an unforgettable show! She has a fantastic band who play all kinds of cool instruments from around the world, and Loreena gave the best vocal performance I've ever heard that evening. She has a uniquely powerful and exquisitely pure voice, and she just blew me away like no singer before or since ever has.

You hear people talk about a singer's "instrument" and Loreena has a Stradivarius.

I don't have any any real outliers. This is a pretty diverse group, so I like a bit of jazz, plenty of jazz heads here, I like a little thrash metal, plenty of metal heads here, etc.

I might differ in the matter of "degree" on a couple of artists. A lot of folks here probably like a little Woody Guthrie. At one point or other I've probably owned everything he ever recorded, sometimes in multiple formats.

The only artist I can think of that I'm crazy about who may not receive a lot of recognition here is Linda Perry (of 4 Non Blondes fame). At least, now that Dino's not around anymore (unless he snuck back in when I wasn't looking). He was just as big a Linda Perry fan as I am.

Also a big fan, more of Sugar and the solo stuff - I have seen him probably 6-7 times in Chicago - always a great show. Cranking his Circle of Friends DVD right now. His book is also very interesting.

Also see Iggy every time he comes around.........

I'm probably unusual here in that I don't listen to much rock. I love the ABB, the Radiators, Hendrix, Cream, and Randy Newman, but I'm mostly a jazzhead - although my listening is really all over the place. Some of my heroes that would probably seem unusual to many folks here:

Steve Lacy
Stockhausen
King Oliver
Sidney Bechet
Bach
Albert Ayler
Dave Tarras

I'm with you , although I'd amend that to BRITISH!

I'm a big fan of Sandy Denny/ Fairports/ Fotheringay, June Tabor, Oysterband, Strawbs, Coope Boyes & Simpson and lesser known contemporary artists.

I went through a Lorenna McKevitt phase because a girlfriend at the time was a fan and, while her music has great moments, she is a little "precious".

I really like Eliza Gilkyson too.

One British Folk/Rock band that I really love that was not mentioned but deserves to be on the list is Steeleye Span. Vocalist Maddy Prior has one incredible singing voice IMO.

I was coming up in the late 90's and am a huge fan of 2 Pac, Biggie, Jay-Z, Wu Tang,
Nas, and OutKast to name a few.

I'll put albums like Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik, ATLiens, All Eyez On Me, Ready to Die, and a whole slew of Jay-Z records (Black Album, Blueprint, and Reasonable Doubt for sure) right up there with the best rock albums of all time on my personal lists.

There was close to a decade where probably 75% of what I bought and listened to was rap.

I've always been a big UB40 fan too.

And Hootie and the Blowfish. "Let Her Cry" in particular, is a beautiful song.

If you are into Desert Rock, are you also into Thin White Rope?

A British friend of mine turned me onto them a few years ago. Great stuff if you're into the genre.
