Update:

Update 2:

TWister, shut up and do my ****. Do that ****. Oh **** yeah.

Update 3:

Man Raymond, I never expected anyone to know that much. Even Echolyn, Rocket Scientists, and Frost*.

Update 4:

Hey thanks Raymond, yeah most of the stuff I put here I like. I threw in some I don't for good measure (Eagles, Bruce Springsteen, Madonna...) Some of these I've only heard bits from (Palestrina for one).

Good to see other true audiophiles on here.

Update 5:

... at you! Ha! It just keeps cumming... anyone who can get all these is truly a demi-God at the level of R&P user King Crimson.

Update 6:

Darth, c'mon. Do you really think I'd get so worked up about... HOW THE **** CAN YOU ONLY GIVE TRANSATLANTIC A 6! YOU *******... just kidding. But do The Beach Boys really get a 0? :P

Update 7:

You've really heard Astral Project, Darth? I didn't expect anyone to have heard them. They don't even have a wiki. :P

Update 8:

Dammit Libby! I was going to put Kayak, Ange AND Giles, Giles, & Fripp, but I ran out of room! :P

Stumped you with 5bridgeS though. STUMPED YOU ALL! :P

I've heard of Current '93 too, I guess I'll look into it. It is my duty.

Update 9:

Yes Libby, that would be biblical.

Update 10:

Libby, if you do that, you will get BA. :P Unless someone else does it too, with the artists laid out nice and easy to read. :P

Update 11:

I'll see what my Crimson magic can do about that bubble bath, Libby. It's a bit rusty... those chains of prison moons and whatnot. :P

Update 12:

One more God-like edit, in which I give my ratings for the bands... AND ANSWER MY BQS! I will have truly conquered Y!A if I pull this off... ok, it'll be more than one edit. :P

    that's probably the greatest list of music I've seen on here. A lot of good jazz and progressive, little bit of post-rock. Great taste if you're into all of those. Just seeing Harmonium and Jade Warrior mentioned is fantastic.

    BQ: Can (Tago Mago/Paperhouse), Pink Floyd (Animals/Dogs), King Crimson (Red/Larks Tongues in Aspic, Pt. 1), Mr. Bungle (Disco Volante/Quote Unquote), Mars Volta (Frances the Mute/Cygnus...Vismund Cyngus)

    BQ2: Green Day (Basket Case), ABBA (S.O.S.)
