I thought this was the standard acid test to see if your tweeter can handle a low crossover point........

Porcupine Tree. If you like rock, especially progressive rock and haven't heard these guys, you need to.

I.. I.. I occasionally listen to Britney Spears. Oh my god, I'm so ashamed.

I'm going to go cry and do something manly, like crush a beercan on my forehead. Or distract myself with Heathkit's suggestion of music I haven't heard of. That sounds healthy.

Thanks for reminding me, Peckerwood! hahahah
I inherited some Herb Alpert LP's from my Gramma And some similar named and sounding stuff, too. I can play a little "Never on Sunday" on piano
Never On A Sunday. That is on Lonely Bull. I also like the song Desfianado a lot off of that one. It was originally done by Stan Getz on the saxophone. Which other Tijuana Brass records did you get?

I own several Herb Alpert records. Always have.
Anyone remember his short lived TV show?

Thumbs up to Esquivel, too!

You got as lot of good stuff there Firechief. I don't remember Herb Alpert's show but I am guessing it must have been when I was an infant probably. When was it? You don't mean the Dating Game because they played the soundtrack do you?

That's not exactly a guilty pleasure. That's just good taste
Another must-check is Opeth, but only if you're into metal. If you're not, you'll probably think it's crap like all the other metal. If you're a metal fan, you'll probably agree that it's probably the best out there. Not to mention their live performances are close to perfection. Really impressive.

As for my own guilty pleasure...ah, let's see...probably Guns 'n' Roses. Probably has something to do with listening too much to their music at an impressionable age. Especially some of their earlier stuff is still nice rock and roll, though.

Trance music. All of it. My wife hates it, I dunno it is by far my favorite thing.

Everything from the early stuff when it was splitting away from the genres of space music, detroit techno and acid jazz up until today. Stuff like
Datura - Yerba Del Diablo (Shagras Mix)
Resistance D - Cosmic Love
Jam And Spoon - Right in the night and Stella.

More modern stuff like:
Chicane - Saltware
Hybrid - Finished Symphony

and my recent fav:
Gareth Emery - Sanctuary
