    We hope you’re as excited as we are to hang out in the new place. There are more new features that we’ll announce in the near future, but for now we hope you’ll enjoy the new site.

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was.

    ^ but it takes an effort. It is worth it though. Have you tried Nebraska? That is hard not to like. I get put off when I hear "rock and roll sax" and thankfully there is none of it on that record, just lo-fi home-recorded goodness.

    REM
    U2
    (I know they have made some great music but I can never get myself to buy it)
    On the newer front I agree on Neutral Milk Hotel

    ^ I just got over an EPIC aversion to U2 by listening to WAR which is an amazing amazing amazing record. It is what a band should sound like, and must have been a breath of fresh air in the synth-heavy environment that was early 1980s top 40. Do yourself a favor and purchase it now. early REM is great, too. The trajectory is kinda the same as U2's really. Fables of Reconstruction is a top-notch album, and it sounds like it was played BY A REAL BAND, instead of some flimsy studio-construction. It is produced by Joe Boyd-----you can live on a steady diet of albums produced by that man without suffering from rickets.

    agreed but i don't want to like either more as neither has made a good album post 1984-85.

    REM
    U2

    Jazz music in general.

    agreed. Add most classical and some blues to the mix. I just can't get into the idea that this is good.
