Peter is right. My reply was based on a configuration problem. I have a modified vxd that shows CD audio tracks as wave files. You can then drag and drop songs directly. When you press Shift as you load a cd, you defeat the autorun feature of windows that is enabled by default. I would imagine that most visitors to this site have disabled Autorun for both data and music disks simply as a matter of security. At any rate, when I loaded the Roseann Cash disk, I immediately got a warning that the cd was unplayable without installing a software player on the disk. When I looked at the cd in explorer, I couldn't see any wave files, just the program data. I assumed that the protection I was seeing was stronger than it was. What I didn't know at the time was that another program had changed my autorun settings and broken my vxd.

Nick Drake, especially the album Pink Moon which is just him and a guitar, very good album, no, amazing album.

Medeski Martin and Wood. Very good jazz/jam band.

G. Love and Special Sauce, mixes jazz, blues, rock, country, rap and R&B for a pretty cool sound.

Ben Harper, very good artist, big in Europe, not so big here in North America. Gets too preachy some times(like his newest album).

Jack Johnson, newer artist, has played with both G Love and Ben Harper. A surfer from Hawaii(top ranked, too), his music is more layed back than previous two.

If no one has picked up on them yet, Coldplay is a good ensemble band. I know, i know, they ae all over the radio, get played too much, etc. Reminds me of Pink Floyd and Radiohead mixed together.

Portishead. Unique, to say the least.

Last but not least, Morcheeba. There first album, Who Can You Trust?, is a very mellow piece. The lead singer has a very addicting voice. Their second album, Big Calm, is much 'happier.'

XM Radio!!! I recently subscribed to it and it is singlehandedly responsible for re-awakening my love of music. I must admit the sound quality is not exactly top-notch, but the scope of music is simply amazing. My favorite stations are Fred (alternative 80's), Classic Jazz and Fish (Christian pop).
