Didn't like the 80s....but liked the 90s? That's not something I hear everyday. But interesting nonetheless.
Heh...I can't tell you how many people went through my LP collection back in the day and ended up shaking their heads. My taste in music is pretty widespread

I love Bach, am a *huge* Beatles fan but it was Alice In Chains that brought me back from the dead in the early 90s...
I'm a generation behind mostly in my taste....but for me anything from about '78-'92 excluding most ballads are good by me. Some stuff in the later 90s is fine too... but 2004-2006 is the REAL END of the road.
Yes, generational preferences almost always have some impact on one's taste. However, there is stuff that is timeless...like this:

I've played this (loudly) to people who had no understanding of language or tradition involved, and have yet to come across someone who wasn't moved...
...Knowledge is a deadly friend when no one sets the rules...(King Crimson)

I'll listen to that a bit later and respond back...probably should fire up the Altec Speakers if you want me to play it loudly.....not sure if my T450 would do it justice even with Dolby Advanced Audio on.

ok....ok....Bach, Beatles, and Alice in the Chains?!? :lol: :lol: :lol:
That....that is just something from out of this world. I guess we all have a little strangeness in us all...am I right? I never in a million years would hear those three names together...well mostly the third one with the other two.
That just made my day . :mrgreen:

So let me guess... you like Laurel and Hardy...Monty Python...and South Park :lol:

Yeah, that sounds about right, at least to a degree. I hated 80s altogether, not just the music. On the other hand, 90s brought a lot of stuff that I did like. Go figure.

A bit...but not one of my primaries. Never going to get tired of "We didn't start the fire" though :D

Track from new album FULL CONTACT69 - SELFDESTRUCTION https://fullcontact69.bandcamp.com/trac ... estruction

For those (few :-) ) who likes this EBM/Dark Electro/Industrial scene, yes it has strong Front Line Assembly -like sound :) I have seen it live two weeks ago in Erfurt (Germany) :thumbs-UP:

Interesting stuff. Kind of early Brian Eno jamming with Rage Against The Machine... :)

Love the Python stuff, get an occasional chuckle out of the other two.

To confuse you a bit more, this is what I've been listening to a lot for the past week or so:

I'm surprised nobody seems to ever mention The Beatles!
Right now I'm listening to Abbey Road
One of their best albums IMHO.

Just spotted another Oldie but Goldie favorite of mine: Art Garfunkel's Angel Clare
