    Jean-Michel Jarre - Oxygéne part I.

    I think I'm going to go through all of that album today as it's one of my favourite albums. Audio porn of the highest order.

    did you try the version with the additionnal tracks ?
    (prelude + variations I, II, III)

    i was listening to it while reading Into thin air from Jon Krakauer: perfect match to add to the impression of being transported in the rarified atmosphere of himalayan heights... :)

    Refined, highbrow tastes :-]

    Rock, for "balance" ---> audio porn of the lowest order:

    The intro to the below illustrates that quite often in music "less is more" (often lost on bombastic bands who 'Bridge' grunge-lite and metal wannabeism).

    True. Not all.

    But it's not their composing that sucks; it's the style.

    Well I fancy baroque, classical as well as romantic, and also later and earlier stuff. In each period/ style there are favourits, but i have to say in romantic music there are more pieces that I really can't stand (e.g. most of Mahler), while in earlier music there aren't that many absolute turn off pieces/ composers. Baroque always seems to sound at least decent.
