My 2 Cents on music

My $.02 on music may not matter to you. That's fine. Music is it for me, has been since the 7th grade when we all awkwardly find our own identity. Then it was Billy Corgan and Liam and Noel Gallagher that connected with me through music. I played percussion in band and instantly started following jazz drum gods Louie Belson, Buddy Rich, Gene Krupa and Joe Morello. I devoured music based on the drum content - from John Bonham's Zeppelin to Chad Sexton's 311 to Danny Carey's Tool to Mike Portnoy's Dream Theater and everywhere in between. The late 90's brought Nu-metal a-plenty - a creative black hole known to me as 'shi* rock,' a rut I was stuck in until The Mars Volta released Deloused in the Comatorium . The Indie revolution of the early 2000's led me to banjo-picking, sample tweeking, hipster loving artists such as Animal Collective and Sufjan Stevens. Indie/lectronica is where my current music tastes reside.

Enough on my music background, now for my $.02. Let us start with my top 10 albums of all time, the journey that brought me to today, 10/7/2k10.

10. Sufjan Stevens - Illinois

9. 311 - Grassroots

8. The Mars Volta - Deloused in the Comatorium

7. Sigur Ros - Takk...

6. Oasis - (What's the Story) Morning Glory?

5. Incubus - Make Yourself

4. The Smashing Pumpkins - Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness

3. Tool - Lateralus

2. Led Zeppelin - IV

1. Radiohead - Kid A

That's my 2 cents.

What do yall think?

Where did I go wrong?

What spots do I have right?

Is the entire list 'shi* rock?'
