Individual singers, composers or bands notwithstanding, what kind of musical genre do you like or dislike ? Please rate them from 1 to 5 as follow :

- 5 : Like very much almost anything of that genre (enough to have gooseskin when listening to your favourite of that genre)
- 4 : Like most of that genre
- 3 : Usually doesn't mind that genre (or very much case by case)
- 2 : Usually dislike that genre
- 1 : Strongly dislike most of that genre (enough to be annoyed/irritated)

Here is my rating in order of preference :

Classical (all from 16th to 20th century) => 5
Western military music (esp. 18th and 19th century) => 5
Colonial music (esp. 18th century) => 5

I'll just list those in 1 or 2
Country and Western - 1 (I loath this type with a passion)
Rap - 1 (Vile rubbish that either uses remixes of decent tracks so the artist can make it sound better than it really is)
Reggae - 2 (Strangely I like Ska, which is an offshoot of Reggae)
Techno - 2 (If I want to hera a drum all day, I'll buy one)

Pop can range from 5 to 1, depending on the band. After all there is some very bland modern music about that doesn't even raise enough emotions in me to be bothered about it.

Oh come on Wilhelm... you rarely post in non-genetic forums. Probably unless there is some importance or correlation to a genetic topic. With your dislikes you might as well have posted African music, Native American music and Gypsy music, while your likes seem to be as European as they can get. That doesn't mean that I don't believe into your music taste or want to say that it's bad. But I don't think that a thread like "Where do police cars chase people for speeding?" would have had the same importance for you.

Well, everyone has it's own musical tastes.

I also like electronic music, but almost entirely from the 90's: Techno, trance, Acid, Goa, Hardcore, comercial Italodance or Euro House, etc. EBM, Industrial, New Beat and similar styles turn me crazy too.

I also like Hard rock (different variants), Italo-Disco (80's), electro, Synth Pop, New Wave, Gothic...there's too much I like.


I absolutely dislike reggetton, pachanga and most of the Spanish music.

All the usual caveats for preferences of specific bands and artists apply, but in general, here's my list:

Rock - 5 (favorites are too many to list... I like old rock and roll from the 50's all the way up to modern rock)
Hard rock - 5 (again like rock, I love hard rock too. Led Zeppelin, ACDC, Deep Purple and Blue Oyster Cult come to mind but there are many others. I guess Rush fits here too, and they're awesome.)
Jazz - 5 (I love jazz in almost all it's styles, though there's very little modern jazz that I like.)
Early Electronic Music - 5 (Gigantic fan of music that features early uses of synthesizers, oscillators, theremins and so on. I even like the kitschy "Moog" novelty recordings from the 60's and 70's.)
Post-Punk/New Wave/New Romantic - 4 (the music that helped formed my childhood tastes. Ultravox, Magazine, Wire, Visage, Gary Numan, etc. Heck I even like early Duran Duran.)
Metal - 4 (fan of early Metallica, Megadeth, Anthrax and Slayer. Also like some Iron Maiden and Judas Priest.)
Blues - 4 (gotta really be in the mood for it, but I am a fan of traditional blues. I also like blues rock.)
Electronic Dance - 4 (I'm a fan but can't listen to it all the time. Favorite period is from 1988-1993.)
Pop - 1-5 (varies wildly. Some of it I love and some of it I hate.)
Funk - 4 (I love the funk. Parliament, Funkadelic, Brothers Johnson, even jazz/funk groups and artists like Return To Forever, Herbie Hancock and Weather Report kick butt as far as I'm concerned.)
Art Rock/Glam - 4 (Roxy Music, David Bowie and Brian Eno)
Classical - 3 (favorites are Liszt and Chopin)
Psychedelic Rock/Pop - 3 (I'm a ****** for weird hippie music.)
Neo-Psychedelic - 3 (Black Moth Super Rainbow, Flaming Lips, Orange Alabaster Mushroom)
Progressive Rock - 3 (a genre with a wild variance in quality. Gong is one of my all-time favorites. In general, I also enjoy Yes, ELP, the Moody Blues, King Crimson, and some others.)
Disco - 3 (Some disco tracks are awesome and timeless, but a whole bunch of it was imitative garbage. The hot tracks are unforgettable though.)
Hip hop - 3
Bossa Nova - 3
Soul - 3 (varies wildly, but Gladys Knight, the Four Tops, Otis Redding... all great)
Country - 2 (I like very little country music, and what little I like is Johnny Cash, Loretta Lynn and a smattering of other stuff from the 50's-70's.)
Reggae - 1
Ska - 1
Ambeint - 1

I actually listen different types of music; In contrast with cinema which I only watched my favourites Film genres ;something that is really interesting is how music helped to develop an identity in the slums in Buenos Aires thanks to "Cumbia Villera" or La Saya, Caporal and Morenadas with the Afro-Americans , Quechuas and Aymaras living in the Andes.

Back to the topic ,the noisy Death Metal can be up to me , like "Cannibal Corpse" or listening the oldies LP of Led Zeppelin or Black Sabbath , but rather than the genres I enjoy listening to music everyday in French, Español, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Ukrainian, English and Romanian, that gave me a wider perspective about the Global village.
