I was kinda surprised… kinda not… I’m sure I there were some duplicates or HQ replacements or live versions of concerts I’ve been in attendance. Can’t say I listen to much of these artists as much.

Metallica
The Rolling Stones
Led Zeppelin
Pearl Jam
Radiohead

I started this thread out of curiosity maybe a little detective work figuring that you’d be able to gain into one’s profile simply by their results. The other and primary reason was to explore new artists. Figuring that if there’s a lot of their music in people’s collections, then there’s bound to be some undiscovered gems.

Not sure what if anything I’ve gleamed on the first point, but on the second point, there’s a lot of unknown to me artist here. So good score.

Deftones and Tool…+2 for you buddy. :slightly_smiling_face:

I love Team Sleep and Palms. Crosses though, I’m not a huge fan of. But Abe Cunningham’s drumming is something else. Deftones new album should drop some time this year :metal::grinning:

Herbert von Karajan
Metallica
AC/DC
Led Zeppelin
Steven Wilson/Porcupine Tree

oh that Palms record, that thing is beautiful, and I’ve been a fan of Aaron’s since Isis. Same i never got much into Crosses but i honestly haven’t given it a chance. i was pleasantly surprised by B-Sides from Deftones as well, the Sade cover :ok_hand: Abe is a monster and highly underrated IMO

My Deftones play list includes lots of different Deftones, a few Team Sleep songs and All of Crosses.

I was all excited about their last album and played the crap out of the lead single. But then I didn’t like the album.
