@themcnoisy Don't think that's true.lol Half maybe but not most.... Besides, British rappers don't lose their accents when rapping. Guess it's not possible to sing with an English accent?

I adore classic rock of 60s and 70s. I especially like Jefferson Airplane

@ellisael Funny you mention that. I recently started listening to Greta Van Fleet after a friend of mine was bugging me listen to it for a while; and I have to admit, they're great! It's that 70s rock, but with a more modern execution. I love it.

Jimmy Fallon and Paul Rudd are really into recreating old music videos. My favourite one is still the Go West music video (thought it was really funny) but this is their third and most recent one:

I have been listening to In The Absence Of Truth by Isis recently, as well as some mathcore that I am pretty pleased with, I like all that stuff and prefer it to metal, all that 'core stuff floats my boat right now, and Tool are the fathers of it all.

Wavering Radiant is also a great post-metal album by Isis, please feel free to check it out as well as 'Absence and let me know your opinions of the albums. My jazz phase is pretty much over so now I am listening to decent "manly" music.

@Draco_Ecliptic Wilco are a band I listen to quite a bit. I think 'Star Wars' might be my favourite album of theirs, although that could be recency bias talking. Is it possible to have recency bias towards an album that's four years old?!

Good job, Parappa. You can go on to the next stage now.

@Gremio108 Can you recommend an album of theirs that is similar to Yankee Hotel Foxtrot or Star Wars in terms of experimentation?

@Draco_Ecliptic 'A Ghost is Born' is along those lines. Perhaps a bit too experimental in places for my liking but there are some great songs on it.

We must be due something new from them soon.

Good job, Parappa. You can go on to the next stage now.

One of my favourite bands, Arab Strap.
Ever heard of this song? It makes mention of Playstation, beer and broken hearts: a possible Pushsquare anthem?

@ellisael Do you like ZZ Top's 'Eliminator' album or Slash's Snakepit's 'It's Five o' Clock Somewhere'?

Recently I have been listening to Isis' last two albums and Neurosis 'Times of Grace' record, I also like a lot of Jazz and Classical music. Any recommendations with regard to Classical music would be appreciated.

@Draco_Ecliptic You might appreciate Hauschka, a German musician who plays the ‘prepared’ piano. Influenced by 20th century avant garde and experimental artists (John Cage,...) and contemporary electronic music. I really love his work.

@JJ-firl Thanks, hes not too shabby at all, sorry for the late response, can you recommend any albums by Philip Glass? I have Glassworks and love that, alternatively ,do you know of any contemporary jazz or other classical performers that might be of interest to me? I like Kronos Quartet's 'Aheym' and 'Polish Night Music' by David Lynch and Marek Zebrowski. If you haven't heard 'Night music, then I fully recommend giving it a spin.

Can anyone recommend anything similar to Colin Stetson's 'Presents Sorrow: A Re-imagining of Gorecki's third symphony'? Either jazz or classical would work for me, I really love the electric guitar-work on that record.
