Default Recommend me ANY music

I'm looking for non-indie stuff. I don't care if it's techno, jazz, pop, classical, metal, rap, new, old, etc. Whatever you like listening to and have been diggin' lately, just spout it off and I'll do my best to get a copy of it and I'll give it a short review.

Oh, preferably recommend albums. Don't just throw out an artist.

Currently, I lean towards the heavy metal/hard rock camp (I won't mention anything by metallica since that's obvious). The 2 best albums I bought this year

Black Label Society - Mafia
Disturbed - Ten Thousand Fists

Other albums I've purchased (some with mixed feeling) are

Megadeath - Greatest Hits
Nickelback - All the Right Reasons
Seether - Karma & Effect
Sevendust - Next
Shinedown - Us & Them
Trapt - Someone in Control

Kev,

My roomate's a huge Trapt fan so I hear her play it a lot. Nickelback, Shinedown, and Seether I've heard from various places (I recall vaguely liking the first Nickelback album) and I've been generally unimpressed. I'll look into the other things, though. Thanks!

(I actually was big into the first Disturbed album and still listen to it once in a while)

you'd be surprised how hard it is to find some popular stuff for previewing purposes. I managed to get ahold of the disturbed album and it's pretty decent and catchy. it'd be better if it wasn't so cliche nu metal, but I like it.

their lead (dramain? or somethin) is an amazing talent. ego problem, but whatever. I really need to see the next show when they come through.

if you like melodic stuff, though, the in flames recs are good, though even earlier than jester's would be good. Nevermore, Opeth and the like are good picks. daveymyck needs to pop in and school me on some more obscure recs than this though, he's my source on this stuff. [img]/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Rick: Good stuff. It's probably time for a female singer/songwriter thread.

Harv: That Toad album is pretty good, but sounds a little dated imo.

Jack: You check out that BV3K album yet? It rules.
