What artists/ musicians have you not given a chance but would like to try them out?

Over the past several years, it just dawned on me how much music is out there and how many artists/ bands I have yet to really listen to fully. I'm not talking about a superficial listening of an album/ artist and then putting them away after one try either. This past year I've picked up albums by Jeff Beck, Cream, Hendrix and just started to listen to what they have to offer and I've come to appreciate their work. Like Hendrix... I've never appreciated Hendrix until listening to Electric Ladyland this summer. Same with the Stones. However there are like so many groups/ people out there that get tons of praise that I haven't got a real idea about.

Anyways are there like musicians/ artists that you want to fully listen to but haven't yet?

Two musical acts that I'd like to start listening to are The Smiths and Stevie Vai.

Radiohead...everyone loves this band and it bores me. I never felt inspired to listen to them. I want to know what the big deal is.

Their most famous song is 'Lola'. Other great songs include 'You Really Got Me' and 'All Day And All Of The Night'. I used to have all their records but I don't want to go into it

I would look for a greatest hit collection that has been remastered. I think they have put out 3 greatest hits albums so far.

The Kinks

yes, that would be the one i thought it was.

listening to 'lola,' definetlynever heard this song before.

the kinks are one of those bands i know i should be familiar with, but given my age/parents' age and taste in music, i just never have. funny how that stuff works.

I think the Kinks would be on my list. Same with T-Rex. I started listening to the Stooges and amazed at the type of sound they had going... "68... inspirational especially considering what was out there at the time. True fathers of punk.

T.Rex is on my list, too. Let's see, what else..

The Pixies
The Cure -- I've had the chance to listen to some stuff because my uncle had a brief obsession, but I have no idea what to check out first. Any suggestions?
Echo and the Bunnymen -- heard The Killing Moon, but that's all.

Album or song suggestions would be appreciated.

yeah, the pixies. i know i like them, i know i like an album or two, but that's it.

i also missed the sale date for tickets to the show here, and right now i'm not really motivated to spend 35 bucks on a show where i won't know most of the songs anyway plus i keep thinking about how this show is being billed as a big umass-homecoming thing, when they were bashing amherst left and right in magazines and shit...

Tori Amos. I like what little I have heard, but have not made the time to sit down and listen yet.

Check out the Pixies' "Doolittle" album. It is absolutely fantastic. And the Cure you should defnintly pick up "disintegration".
