It's changed my life, seriously my love for music was being destroyed by NME, MTV2 etc. I needed a site where the music was important, not the image or whatever.
I came across this site by complete accident aswell, searching for reviews of Black Holes & Revelations. Thinking to myself why aren't there more bands like Muse out there that actually excite me and don't sound like every other band ever.
There are bands like that and they are found here on DiS, Minus The Bear, volcano!, Spanish For 100, Asobi Seksu, The Twilight Sad, Broken Social Scene. to name some bands that I have got into because of this site, some of which I had never heard of before.
The only thing that I find annoying about this site are the users that are a bit up themselves because they have such a varied and/or obscure music taste. These people are few and far between though, most people on here simply have a love of music, maybe get a bit over-opinionated at times, me included but generally most people get along. It's like a big music loving community, a haven for true music fans.
Sorry if I rambled, is that what you were after?
Now more than ever.
but if I'm completely honest, I only spend so much time on here because I'm bored at work. I'd never log on at home
