They're lyrics are extremely well written, and they're concept albums Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals, and The Wall (Great movie by the way) are simply brilliant. I'm getting to that point in my life where I am sort of phasing out all the mindless music I used to listen to.

I'd just like to hear some opinions on artists that you think would best suit my condition.

Please don't hold back, I listen to everything. Rap, Pop, Electronica, some Metal (please avoid Death Metal/Thrash Metal) I can never get in to any of that.

Go into more of the unknown region of music, because I've more than likely heard all of the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, and 00s popular bands
