    I really like Bic Runga, especially her second album which is close to perfect.

    Robbie Williams. The man himself is an arrogant cock but he makes good music. Keane, as well.

    Same here, which certainly floored some of my friends!

    I'm never sure whether I should be ashamed for loving Dreams by Van Halen either.

    5150 is Van Halen's best. \o/

    Heh. Looking on Wikipedia apparently Dreams was used in the Power Rangers film. I must have that on an old VHS somewhere...

    Heeeey, that's exactly what I thought! Like Queen meeting the Scissor Sisters is how I put it.

    I have the first three Robbie Williams albums however I have not listened to them in a long time. These are not hated by the critics but the vast, vast majority of my CD collection is progressive rock or metal. So they do not really fit in.

    Recently started to really like Arctic Monkeys which is another departure from my usual music.

    Note: Train of Thought by Dream Theater is my favourite album and Tool is my favourite band.

    I like Robbie Williams' music, too. Well, his first few solo albums. They generally are very good songs, good lyrically and well sung.

    And like the above poster, Tool is also my favourite band. Yeah..

    I quite like Eminem too. Although I haven't listened to any of his stuff for years.

    In my mind, the good MJ albums are all by Quincey Jones, not him, and hence cool.

    God, I have so much choice for music that (some people think) is uncool. Ian Brown, Roxy Music, Prince (not forgetting the Revolution), the Hives, Duke Ellington, Procol Harum, Catatonia, Kate Bush. That's just albums I can see from here which I also like.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    Keane are great, I've seen them live.

    Also on my nano are the greatest hits of Girls Aloud and McFly. Yeah, I went there.

    I *really* like the Yank version of Fleetwood Mac, even though it's deeply uncool.

    I think it's to do with my upbringing, my dad played Tango In The Night a lot when I was about 8. It reminds me of home, but ultimately there are awesome songs on it, too.

    Plus the usual gay icons, Dolly Parton, PSB etc.

    Don't really qualify as critically panned or generally regarded as poor.

    Sensual World is KB's best album!

    I think Mika is pretty talented when you sit him down in front of a piano. As for him sounding like Freddie. Not even close. He likes to copy Freddie (Fat Bottom Girls/ Big Girls) but he does not sound like him. He sounds more like Robbie Williams.

    FCUTA!

    She's a genuis. I will hear no more of these lies. And like bivith mentioned in respect to Kate Bush, she is hardly critically panned or generally regarded as poor.

    Mine is Fall Out Boy. Femo FTW!

    I meant more O_O - as in how can a cultural icon, and one of the most important and influential people in modern music be considered uncool or naff.

    I really do not like Keane however I saw them at the Werchter festival in Belgium and they were unbelievably good. I still to this day can not understand how a band that in my opinion are completely middle of the road could do a gig that good. (Only Bjork, Metallica, Muse, Pearl Jam and Arctic Monkeys were better).

    The Belgian's really love them. So it is understandable that Keane were at their best for the gig. I have to keep telling myself it was a one off.

    That's all very well if you have time to sit and listen to 600 new records a week. :)



    Do you read 600 reviews a week though?

    I get the point of the music press and I do occasionally get some publications, but itís more to make me aware of whatís out there, I donít read the reviews.

    Heh, no - that's my point. Luckily I have the media to whittle them down, and suggest which I might like.
