Rate the Person's Above Taste in Music

Alright, here goes, we'll see if it catches on. Basically, post a couple bands you like, they don't have to be your favorites they could just be some new bands you've gotten into recently, and the person underneath you will judge a couple of them and make an overall appraisal of your taste in music (please criticize unharshly.) 1 being not your thing. 10 being excellent. Rate them anywhere. I'll go first:

1. Arcade Fire
2. The Shins
3. The Stills
4. New Order
5. Bob Marley
6. Bloc Party
7. Foo Fighters
8. The Beach Boys
9. David Bowie
10. Guster

Pretty decent and certainly diverse, especially the presence of New Order in that list. I don't know of Guster or any stuff from The Stills, but I certainly like a fair dose of songs from Foo and Bloc Party. If listening to music with you means listening to Generator, I Still Remember, So Here We Are Neighborhood 3, Magic Dance, Suffragette City, Buffalo Solider, Kokomo and the timeless True Faith, I'm sure we'll have a great time.....and who knows I might become a fan of the Stills and Guster through our acquaintance.

8.1 out of 10.

Artists I've listened to the most this year:

1. Travis
2. Editors
3. Interpol
4. Radiohead
5. Josh Pyke

Thanks so much. Yes, 3 and Suffragette City rock! I like the others too. Want me to send you some videos from The Stills and Guster?

7/10. I like Travis and the Editors. I am not too crazy about Interpol (that's cool you like them, though). I like some Radiohead, it depends. I haven't heard of Josh Pyke. What does he sound like?

If we listen to "All Sparks," "Creep," "High and Dry," and "Why Does It Always Rain On Me?," I'll be happy!

7/10. Very unique taste here. Lots to choose from. You have the classics and some of today's favorites. I like some Beatles and Pink Floyd, not a huge fan of either, though. I really like these Beatles songs: "Let It Be," and "Magical Mystery Tour." For Pink Floyd I like: "Us and Them" and "Wish You Were Here. I am FOREVER ASHAMED, I don't like "Another Brick in the Wall, p.t.2. I know, it's a classic. I like how they talk about hating school but the British kids in the song really get on my nerves for some reason. That's cool you like them, though. I love Led Zepplein, David Bowie, and The Kinks. I have to listen to "Victoria," "Space Oddity," and " Immigrant Song" for my life to be complete. Beck is boring to me. But I love "Loser" and "Devil's Haircut." I love Blur and Pulp. Supergrass and Oasis are cool too. I love the whole 90's british pop time period. You can't go wrong with a little "Tender" and "Wonderwall." Blur is one of my favorite bands of all time. Very good list, LemonMelon.

7/10. Not bad. Very unique with variety. Now I must say the way I rate you us only based on my personal taste. I love Muse, The Who, Arcade Fire, Pixies, and the Kinks. I am recently getting into Velvet Underground and The Flaming Lips. I like The White Stripes, Wilco, and R.E.M. Never been a big Bruce, Beatles, or Rolling Stones fan. Sorry. Great job, LemonMacPhisto.

1. U2 (Of Course) lol.
2. Blur
3. The Who
4. Madness
5. Aztec Camera
6. The Dead Kennedys
7. The Jam
8. Metallica
9. The Verve
10. Tears For Fears

Aztec Camera and Jam are certainly yes for me. Other than U2, I don't care much for the others, sorry. But it's not an awful list.

Here are some I like:

Gene Krupa
Boswell Sisters
John Coltrane
Curtis Mayfield
Slowdive
Husker Du
