What type of music does everyone listen to? Favorite genres/Artists?

Just leave lists of artists and stuff that you are into. I’m just genuinely curious about what others dig. Language dosent matter to me as I’ve listened to everything from German to Korean to Spanish to Japanese! Please mention anything.

Progressive rock tends to be not softer per say but less hardcore right?? Out of the ones you listed which are the softest?? If I may ask. I just ask because even though I definetly am open to music it would always be nice to listen to new music that is more likely to be something that I like. For now I’ll definitely listen to some of the songs. Thnx!

I listen to a wide array of music depending on my mood. A couple examples of bands/artists that I enjoy the most are Mac Miller, Halsey, A Day to Remember, Journey, deadmau5, blink-182, Hopsin, George Straight, Lindsey Stirling, and many others, but just those as an example. If I had to pick one album that I would recommend anyone listen to as long as explicit themes/language are not a deal breaker, it would be Swimming by Mac Miller.

That’s a surprisingly normal list of music. Most people who are crazy into audio tend to have some almost elitist mood around them and their music. So it’s quite refreshing to read your list too. And I’ll check out the swimming album for sure. Thanks

I’m really new to higher end audio equipment but I find that all the music I was already into just gets better for me with the new stuff I get. Basically took what I thought was a 10 and cranked it up a little bit. I can appreciate some of the denser more “high end” sounding tracks that people say to listen to that’ll blow you away but I love my music still and now even more with my new hobby.

The softest ones out of what I listed:

Harmonium (French Canadian with folk and classical influences)
Le Orme (Italian with folk, classical and space rock influences)
Mike Oldfield (Mostly instrumental, long compositions with New Age influences)

Progressive Rock is a very broad genre. It is more defined by greater complexity of composition and artistic concepts rather than representing a particular musical style.

Yeah I definitely get it. And with my TIN T2 I agree about what you said but for whatever reason music that I liked actually sounds worse on my Beyerdynamic DT770. I think because it really thins out the sound certain mp3’s could sound cheaper. Only my flacs really felt good.

I actually listened to Le Orme first because it sounded softer! (by the soft name lol) and yeah thats totally around my style so thanks! I believe I listened to the one that has one of the album title words. Thanks I’ll definitely listen to the other ones you wrote!

should check out JYOCHO if you haven’t already.

Oh nice! Yeah I don’t listen to Japanese as often as I used to but honestly they definitely have something special to their sound! I don’t think I went as deep as you because I honestly mostly found Japanese music through Anime so I don’t recognize any of those groups but I will listen to some. I mostly know of more groups that made Anime songs like Scandal, Larc En Ciel, Asian Lungfu Generation etc. And it’s cool dude lol. We all wish we could share our flacs but it is what it is

Wagakki Band = best Japanese band

In my car I listen to mostly stoner/doomer metal. Monolord, Sleep, High on Fire, The Necromancers, SVVAMP, Haunt etc etc.

At work listen almost exclusively to throwback synth wave stuff… Mostly steaming on YouTube via NewRetroWave, Astral Throb,
ThePrimeThanatos etc etc.

At home it’s a lot of 90s grunge/NIN/Marilyn Manson… Shit I grew up listening to in high school in the late 90s.
