    That's currently listening to instead of a general overview

    Personally I listen mostly to:
    Disturbed, Relative Ash, Boy hits car, Clawfinger, Dimmu Borgir, Drowning Pool, Galneryus, System of a Down, Rammstein, Abingdon Boys School, Maximum the Hormone.. and so on.
    I guess 'metal' sums it up

    As for the player... I used to use Amarok 1.4 and liked it, then tried 2.0 .. hate it.
    So I switched to JuK, which pretty much all the functions I used from Amarok 1.4 but KDE4 based.

    [edit]:
    Oh if you're interested in format as well as you mentioned FLAC, I got nearly everything as 192kbps mp3's.
    Mostly to keep compability with my Zen V Plus mp3player... and because my ears/sound system isn't good enough to hear any quality difference between that and higher bitrates/other formats.

    Here's an old thread that nobody's commented on in a little while, so
    I'll start this round.

    I'm listening to a disc titled "The Lord of the Rings: The Rarities
    Archive".

    Disc comes with the book "The Music of The Lord of the Rings Films" and
    contains recordings that weren't used for the films. Lots of proof of
    concept/mock-up tracks, and also alternate versions of a number of songs.

    Current track is a mock-up of the theme for Gondor. It's synthesized,
    and not much like the final version.

    The book looks quite interesting as well - for those who have the
    complete recordings from the films (there was a collection released a few
    years ago), the book is an extension of the notes that came with those
    discs - some overlap, but the book is the complete set of notes.

    Very interesting overall for those interested in the evolution of music
    used in film scores.

    Smile Re: What are you listening to?

    Hello Jim and why don't I follow suite with the two CD's I have been listening to lately. The first is relatively new, but from Last year (2010) and it is the Sound Track to TRON with 24 (Instrumental) tracks by Daft Punk which is very good music to write forum messages to. I saw this feature at the movies the week end of New Years and could not get some of the tunes out of my head and so I decided to buy the CD instead. The next CD is called Whatcha Say by Jason Derlo with 14 tracks and all good music which was released at the start of last year (2010). I happened upon one of his songs through an Internet radio station just as my daughter was fetching a document from the printer and I asked her if she had heard of this song and I was told about it and the fact that she also liked the song as well. Well there you have it, two CD's you should check out.

    Thank You,

    Almost only hip-hop though I am open to and do listen to other genres...

    mostly classic mid to late 90s east coast hip hop...

    Wu-Tang, Outkast, Nas, Jay-Z, RZA, Canibus, Biggie, illogic, aesop rock, gza,

    as far as 'newer' rappers:

    Lupe Fiasco, Elzhi, Tony Moon

    Amarok 2.4 is hands down the best music player/manager i've tried on linux

    and it has actually stopped me from complaining about lack of winamp and its wondrous db management in linux so that has to be a good thing right?
