Wondering where to draw the line between melodic and other rock (but let's not have that discussion here :), here goes:

- most genres that include 'rock' & crunchy guitars (hardrock, bluesrock, southern rock, progrock, folkrock, glamrock) - not into pure blues & folk & stuff. No country either. Westcoast - not really, because not crunchy enough. Chicago (the band) being the notable exception.

- most melodic metal that isn't based on overly operatic female vox, grunt&growl & screams. That being said, I can appreciate stuff that includes limited doses of the aforementioned (such as Amaranthe, Sirenia, Nightwish & the likes)

- prog & instrumental rock/metal that isn't too freaky & widdly - I like some structure & melody, thankyouverymuch. Except maybe for some Ozric Tentacles & Quantum Fantay (Belgian band! ;) stuff sometimes.

- pop - for some reason I'm very into 1st period A-ha (up to and including East of the Sun, which is the best thing they've ever done imo). Other more pop oriented artists I like are Billy Joel & Chris Rea.

Absolutely abhor 'music' that's all samples & programmed (r&b, rap, techno) & deejay mix shit.

Although it's not 'my thing', I do respect anyone that actually plays (an) instrument(s) to make music (soul, jazz, classic, folk, country etc.)

Rocket!
Sven.
