Re: 5 Favorite Bands/Music Artists
5: The Doors.
They opened up something completely new, and then, apparently, closed that door behind them since there is little that is like them. Childish but horrifying tunes, one after one. "People are strange" is probably the best example of that. I hardly enjoy lyrics, but Morrison really deliveres them.
They are complex but percieveable, varying much in the produced materials. They are masters of completing a concept, making unorthodox songs that makes sense in it's whole. Also, their music is often happy and sad at the same time, and most often delivers strong emotions. At first, I was turned off by the singers whiny voice, but I quickly saw past that, and even saw them live with a couple of friends about two years back. They were GREAT.
3: Bo Hansson.
A true genious of instrumental, progressive rock. His first album, Lord of the Rings, set a tune to the landscapes and adventures of middle earth, and from there, he dispatched into doing really great melodic instrumental music. He stuck on me many years ago.
2: Jimi Hendrix.
No way to explain the part of his music that attunes with my mindset. He manages to deliver hard but groovy tunes, rebellious but consistent, something that few people have accomplished. This description does not make him justice.
1: Pink Floyd.
Dark Side of the Moon is the best album ever. Nothing will ever beat this album, ever. More than once, I've actually started to shake and twitch to The Great Gig in the Sky, just recieving the ultimate briliance of this piece.
