In a very broad sense, what does it sound like?

I tend to like stuff that is very loud, uptempo, fast paced/energetic, and has a robotic tone. I actually seem to like songs more if the words are slurred together a bit and difficult to hear. I like music that focuses more on recreating a feeling or emotion than "sending a message about society."

And a lot of alternative rock.
I like music that is meaningful and impactful.

I'm actually enjoying while I listen these songs. They have a pretty good lyrics (when translated from Icelandic) and the music itself is great. But I understand why there are not so many people who like this type of music. It can be pretty hardcore sometimes (and by that I mean always).

I.understand what you mean. I sometimes enjoy this kinda stuff as well. But my reasons are different I guess. I find over the top and wacky stuff amusing lol. For instance, I used to listen this one a lot with friends.

I'm a little too all over the place to boil it down easily, but lately I've been about 'depressing experimental blues/free guitar' (not sure how else to describe it) & some 'ambient, occasionally noisy electronica' (?)

I guess the commonality between 'em is that they're both downers

also—man, it sounds so pretentious when I put it in words like that

I listen to whatever I think is goodgreat answer I know. I prefer upbeat stuff to depressing. I like folk instrumentation and I have an unexplained fascination with nationalist and patriotic music from all over the world including both folk/marches and modern stuff.

Idk, aggressive or energetic, if it has lyrics then it's often about death or sex. One of my favorite song I liked to sing in my childhood was just about a guy crashing his car and dying. The other one was about anal sex. Been listening speedcore these past days.

If there wasn't for a Eurovision I wouldn't even heard of them. But here I am now, singing in Icelandic and with 500 Hatari members images on my phone.

I enjoy listening to the anguished screams of scandanavian nationalists, set to the sounds of sprinklers, and carpal tunnel inducing tremolo picking.

In general, I like fast songs or songs with lots of flourish. I also tend to gravitate towards heavier sounds, so light metal is my favorite. I'm not too much into screaming though.

Your description sounds exactly like what Touhou music sounds like. Conincidentally that's what I'm into rn. Other than that I don't give a shit about the "message" behind the music either, I just go by whatever sound good. Usually that's something with lots of bass or anything relaxing.

I don't know man, I vacillate between batshit crazy, balls to the walls, heavy metal all the way to soft and dreamy shoegaze. I'm mostly on the former side.

In a word, I look for intensity. I won't care to define it though.

I'd describe "proper" dubstep as deep, dark, laidback yet gives off that raw energy, and more emphasis on the bass and sub-bass. Kinda reminds me of a desolate, urban wasteland sometimes from its usual sounds.

Jazz I'd describe as individualistic, liberal, and sometimes chaotic. With improvisation being the music's staple, there's always something different to hear on each compositions/standards given its rich musical vocabulary. It really challenges your creativity which is one of its appeals for me.

I'm not sure about the second one but the first one would count as Touhou music. Sorry, I actually wanted to specifically mention the Touhou OSTs and Music Collections of the creator of Touhou (his name is ZUN), should've made that clear ("Touhou music" includes remixes). Of course, most of the time remixes are well made too, it's a matter of taste (as in all things music). Since I'm rather new to the whole Touhou thing, I can't give you well thought out recommendations, so I'll just give you what I have listened to most recently. From ZUN:



It's one whole album. First track starts of slow but picks up in pace early.

A remix album:

The album has tracks of different genres, slow ones too, but the techno tracks are really good imo.

One of the types of music I listen to is "Slowed + Reverb". For me, listening to that type of music is claiming and cures depression away. 😊 💕

I like stuff that's very beat oriented. Grew Up listening to my Mom's old R&B and Soul CD's.

My tastes evolved into Rap, Blues, Lofi, Soul, and Bedroom Pop.
I try listening to everything though and try appreciate good stuff that I necessarily don't tickle my fancy

Here are some songs that kind of embody the songs I like.

The type I like are usually the ones like The Carpenters, John Denver, etc. I do like pop songs, but I don't really tend to listen to them as much when I'm listening for a long period of time.

Shoegaze has been taking up my time recently though

For me it would be the flow, the lyrics, the beat, the melody and the vibe of the song, that's all i need to get in love with a song.

I used to be quite and 'old head' with my taste in music and would worship rock bands of the 70's and the legendary MC's of the 90's as being the best and never being beat. I realised how limiting this view was years ago and decided to broaden my tastes, and then I just kept getting broader and broader.

To this day I find myself able to enjoy almost any type of music. I studied alot of theory being a musician myself and love listening to alot of more complex arrangements, picking them apart and listening to the relationships between the notes and trying to understand what makes it sound good.

This sort of led to my musical taste being multifaceted as what I like to hear in music is the attempt to experiment with new tones and sounds, thats the best way I can explain it. I guess an example of this is how Kanye West uses the human voice as an unlimited expanse of sound, experimenting and editing vocal tracks to make them entirely unique

That's my final answer, it sounds like uniquity
