Music Suggestions!

Pages: 12
I know the majority of people listen to good music when the are hammering away at the keyboard.

What are some of your favorite things to listen to while trying to solve problems?

Although, I may be in the minority, for me its mostly trance, electronica, with a side of Original SoundTracks from various games/shows. :P

Favorite album/track by Dream Theater?

I'd be torn between Octavarium (album) and Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence pt 2 for an album. For a song I'd be torn between Octavarium(song), about to crash, Solitary Shell, Forsaken, In the Presence of Enemies - Part II, The Count of Tuscany, or Never Enough.


... my roommate introduced me to them a year ago and I've been pretty well into them since.

Another song that I really like, though, is Enrique Iglesias - Tonight I'm F**king You: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LDtYkOrV4-E (if your offended by the name, don't even bother clicking on the link).

Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes from a Memory is my favorite but its also the most mellow. The album as a whole works but I wouldn't listen to any individual song. I also really like their new one, A Dramatic Turn of Events.
Alestorm (Pirate/Folk Metal) (Don't let the absurd naming of the genre or band discourage you to listen the song.)

You should check Immediate Music and Two Steps From Hell, in that case. They're quite good.
