Also, how important do you think it is that the music you like/own reflects who you are as a person?

the soft cell
not very expansive, i'll concentrate on my favourite act and associated acts and that will go through phases. The 2nd part of the question, extremely important.
everything I like is mostly dark/depressing/melancholic/punky.
I also really like Dancing Queen by ABBA.
But I'm not sure I'd like to be seen wearing an ABBA T-Shirt.
And I wouldn't want someone looking at my alphabatised playlist on Spotify, thinking 'oh so you're into ABBA are you?'
Should probably store all that in a Misc. folder.
fairly easy not to buy an ABBA shirt, literally no one would be looking or care about what is in a spotify playlist
This is a good sentence
I'm into everything from Pink Floyd to Dire Straits.
I’ve got a broad taste, you know. From the Britpop bands like UB40, Def Leppard, right back to classic rock, like Wings.
thinknig of working some of it into my grindcore noisepunk hip hop tweecore band tbh
and I think this reflects my personality crisis.
I'm 60 yrs young, been collecting since I was 3. I go from Charlie Parker & Monk to Little Richard & James Brown to Foxygen & Parquet Courts.
I've heard mixed reviews
I have a 7" box and 5 Ikea shelving unit boxes (you know the type) full of LPs. Plus a good 1500+ albums on mp3. Pretty much just rock / indie type music with token choices from other genres. I like to think it is expansive but I consider myself a fan of Northern Soul but I am not sure a couple of mp3 best-ofs really count now I think about it.
I've been a big Genesis fan ever since the release of their 1980 album, Duke. Before that, I really didn't understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual. It was on Duke where Phil Collins' presence became more apparent. I think Invisible Touch was the group's undisputed masterpiece. It's an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums. Christy, take off your robe. Listen to the brilliant ensemble playing of Banks, Collins and Rutherford. You can practically hear every nuance of every instrument. Sabrina, remove your dress. In terms of lyrical craftsmanship, the sheer songwriting, this album hits a new peak of professionalism. Sabrina, why don't you, uh, dance a little. Take the lyrics to Land of Confusion. In this song, Phil Collins addresses the problems of abusive political authority. In Too Deep is the most moving pop song of the 1980s, about monogamy and commitment. The song is extremely uplifting. Their lyrics are as positive and affirmative as anything I've heard in rock. Christy, get down on your knees so Sabrina can see your asshole. Phil Collins' solo career seems to be more commercial and therefore more satisfying, in a narrower way. Especially songs like In the Air Tonight and Against All Odds. Sabrina, don't just stare at it, eat it. But I also think Phil Collins works best within the confines of the group, than as a solo artist, and I stress the word artist. This is Sussudio, a great, great song, a personal favorite.
and I took against them due to their (at the time....although I can see that now they will look different to those used to something else) absolute predictability and unexcitingness......they captured rock and removed any excitement or danger or suprise, thus to me they and he are like hell (although it is a personally subjective hell.....it is impossible for me to be critically objective, as I DO exist)
At polytechnic everyone had that sodding solo albumn of his......I came to hate in the air tonight and the other singles to a degree that is matched by others love of them.
Sorry I think he, and Genesis, were shit.
when they were mega prog. not high on my 'to check out' list that mind
Add that to your collection, Mr. Bateman.
from Eminem to D12 I literally listen to everything you could imagine
