    I got my signature from a promotional website of Year Zero-album. I thought it was brilliant because I really see art that way. So I decided to make it my signature.

    There is alternative reality game supporting the consept album.
    This really shows that art is resistance! Year Zero shows what might happen in the future if we continue this stupidity.
    There are clues to the websites in many places, like in the CD and its booklet. I found out about the ARG when I listened to the CD for the first time. First it was black, but when it heated up in Cd-player it turned white and revealed a binary sequense which I translated into letters.

    Trent Reznor is a genius. I mean, how many artists would see so much trouble just to entertain their fans and to bring a greater meaning to the music and art.

    That's pretty crazy. I love when artist use such subtleties (like that binary thing) that people my or may not see. I think it shows the difference between those who are really moved by the art and those who just don't seem to care.

    Especially in movies. For example there's a fairly new movie called Revolver by Guy Ritchie. The few people that have seen it think it's just another con/action movie and that's it. When in actuality it has many references to Buddhism and what is known in Buddhism as the ego (called Sam Gold in the movie). Similarities to The Matrix on freeing the mind (from the ego).

    "Survivalism" -Nine Inch Nails (I put them in on Pandora, it's not bad however, I prefer more straight up Industrial)

    Anything by the Bouncing Souls; especially their newest album 'The Gold Record'. Also everything by Streetlight Manifesto is awesome, its ska music with great lyrics.

    "The Day The World Went Away" Nine Inch Nails
    This is very important song to me. I didn't understand the meaning of the song and lyrics until the sad things happened in my life. Music can be more therapeutic than taking.

    The video for the song, using live audio and a combination of live and original footage, was included as an Easter egg on Nine Inch Nails' And All That Could Have Been live DVD. The original video was never released.
    It's better on the CD. No screams or commotion and better played.

    Absolutely. With Who's Next being the greatest album ever recorded. Have to listen to the violin section at the end of "Baba O'Riley" at least once a month.

    Speaking of which, have you checked out The Grauniad's "1000 albums to listen to before you die"? They recommend Meaty beaty big and bouncy for The Who, and (given their criteria) I concur.

    No, I guess not. It is more of a personal preference thing. I listen to a wide variety of music of which Alice Copper is not one. To all his own I guess. :wink:

    I recognize Blink-182 as a good band, but sadly I'm not too keen on the music style. Hopefully that will change one day

    If I were to recomend what I think is the best band from my list (with uncertainty) I would probably go for Tool, because that is mostly what I'm listening to for the moment. Another really good band would be... mmmm... King Crimson :wink:

    Good question although, I'm not sure what science and rock have to do with each other that would make 'science minded' people attracted to rock.

    Are you thinking perhaps about the generally rebellious nature of rock (or at least that's how it was originally viewed...thinking of Elvis) and how scientifically-minded people tend to be more critical than others about variuos aspects of the world? If you see what I mean...

    An awesome song. I don't know what the artist would say but I think it's about enlightenment, or something very similar to it.

    Yes, I prefer classical. I am unfamiliar with most of the titles mentioned above because I just don't listen to the rock music radio stations. Here are a couple of fun music/science facts. Einstein was an excellent violinist. Thomas Young (Young's modulus, Young double slit experiment) played the piano and invented Young Temperament.

    I like classical music too. It can be very soothing, and then make you on your toes when the song lifts up .

    Yeah, but your old, Harold
    No seriously, I enjoy classical opera as well, as I love singing. I always get goose-bumps when a tenor hits a high note I really enjoy good, strong violin music too, like in the movie "the red violin" where the guy performs in the theatre. Generally when it comes to music, I rarely know the words to a song or sometimes even the title, only as number this on that CD. I go after the emotional response I get from the pure musical aspect.

    I think a lot of people enjoy classical. I always listen to classical (sometimes eastern) while reading. However, the idea of it being "soothing" is interesting.
    What makes music soothing. I have found that when I have a migraine I can get rid of it best while listening to the strong, consistent beat and minor chords of industrial music, while droning on some computer screen (obviously lots of water and an ice pack is good too).
    In this case the industrial music is very, very soothing; like a pain killer of some sort.
    Given the right person or situation, I would think rock could have the same effect.

    I think taste in music has a lot to do with one's past. I would bet that there is something you could find in your childhood that brought you to enjoy the music you do.

    You're right about that, Bob. My dad liked classsical, although he only ever had a cheap monaural record player and a meager collection: Beethoven's 5th, Moonlight Sonata, Tchaikovsky Nutcracker Suite, Mozart's 39th and maybe 3 or 4 others. I used to listen to rock like everybody else but after college just drifted back to classical exclusively.

    I like classical - I like top 40's stuff too but classical music has a depth that modern pop can't match. Especially the big, heavy stuff like Tchaikovsky - 1812 Overture is the well known example but Marche Slave is my favorite.
    Mozart is good too - everything he composed is so fluid and melodic, it's like he writes exactly what you expect to hear. Very natural.

    I will never be tired of the Moonlight Sonata. I also really enjoy Beethoven's 9th Symphony.

    When I was younger I played computer games a lot. The music in them was very unique. It wasn't that annoying stuff either. All the ones that had music I really enjoyed had very similar soundtracks. Then I started listening to Industrial about a year ago and when a friend heard it he said something like "just like the Unreal music". I didn't even realize how similar it was. Of course I also like it for other reasons and I'm not into all of it.

    What I was getting to is that I don't think it's just about the past but also the mood (related to the past) that it puts you in. The games I played were (in my opinion) these awesome scifi dreams. When I hear the music it's not that I remember the scenes or the stories but more the feeling of awe (like, "is this real" or "could this be real").

    Anyways...

    "Rising Sun" -Covenant

    P.S.
    Harold,
    Yeah, I have this same thing. I listen to mostly electronic stuff now but whenever I hear ELO or Queen come on somewhere I just love it. My father's favorite band was ELO and as a kid mine was Queen. Sometimes it's a song I don't even know but I still really enjoy it.

    Absolutely. Same way with me. I don't care about lyrics. If the music's good I'll listen to it.
