Who here gets anime soundtracks ever? The only ones I've ever took the time to 'get' were the Rozen Maiden and Rozen Maiden Traumend OSTs. I love the classical music as well as the fight music.

NHK's soundtrack is the best shit ever.
More gaijin anime fans need to be like >>8. I actually have a lot of the soundtracks from his list. Paprika's OST also got me into collecting Hirasawa Susumu's music. Awesome shit. Still, for me it's far more about image albums and vocal collections than instrumental soundtracks — unless, of course, there's something especially awesome about the instrumentals.
I reached my 200 CD mark the other day with just over half of them being Jpop, Jrock, or anime. Plus I have a bunch of mix CDs and MP3s on my laptop. eBay, Half-Priced Books, the Internet, and a local dedicated anime store are to blame.
I'm excited about getting some new CDs at the anime store this weekend since they'll be on sale for Free Comic Book Day.
Necrobump to add that these days I'm mostly after OP/ED singles rather than full soundtracks. The Bakuman. OP "Blue bird" has so much audible sparkle and boyband-like qualities I tend to burst out giggling whenever I hear it.
Non Non Biyori has a pretty good soundtrack.
Which one is your favorite ?
I'd describe the song as "jazzy." From what I can decipher in the lyrics, the singers first talk about getting on a bus, but the most memorable part is, I think, "Johnny, get down, gotta move it up" repeated in the song. Looking up that lyric doesn't give any relevant results. The singers are male.
Shit off p2p?

Good music everyone.
Not mine, bu it's good breakcore/lolicore
Not too many jams on mine yet, but that'll probably change eventually.
Has anyone ever been to a concert before? How was it? Was the band better live? Are you planning on going to a concert soon?

Why does everyone here have such a horrible taste in music?
Because they don't have your taste in music!

Could anyone recomend me some ska punk bands?
I'm looking for anything funky, jazzy, preferably not REAL punk( old british punk haha).
Thanks in advance!
Ska-P? Well, good but far from the best, apart for one or two tubes... but true, they have something. If language doesn't bother you, you may want to try Spook & The Guay (they're French, but most of their songs are in english anyway - wait, I even wonder if they happen to sing in french).
I'd say Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra (aka SkaPara, you know how they contract all the words). Japanese group, very talented. The lineup changes very often, and there are many bandmembers. They do a lot of covers/collabs, too. Their remake of Hit The Road Jack is priceless.
Try Skatalites, as someone said. Old stuff, really good. Or hey, madness. They have a lot of really groovy tunes other than One Step Beyond or Her House.
Also, some NOFX might please you. And Sublime (Date Rape is gigantic).
ska from UKRAINE:
I think the three main branches are: Ska (the closest to classic reggea), Ska Jazz (more brass, larger orchestras, rythm'n'blues influences), and Ska Punk (more importance on the guitars, use of punk riffs & disto sound, often more 'punkish' lyrics).
Of course, as most of the music styles, it has many and many subgenres.
I'll add Smash Mouth and Reel Big Fish to your lists.
Search "third wave ska" on sites like Wikipedia to obtain more of this style. It englobes most of what we commonly call "ska-punk".
>>11 Well, not really. The three main branches are 1st, 2nd and 3rd wave ska. 1st wave ska came first, as a mix of traditional styles like mento mixed with influences of jazz and r'n'b heard in Jamaica via American soldiers' radios after WW2; bands such as the Skatalites and Desmond Dekker. 2nd wave ska came about when Jamaican immigrants brought their music into the UK in the 70s-80s and it mixed with the flourishing punk scene - mainly bands on the 2-Tone label like Madness and the Specials. 3rd wave ska is the American sound of pop punk added into the flavour, from the late 80s-90s, bands like Reel Big Fish and Less Than Jake. Often, 3rd wave ska songs will have an offbeat-skanky section, a halftime bouncy section and a thrashy punk-powerchords moshpit section, and will be about drinking and partying! Sometimes they are more interesting though, I'm going to come out and say it, Streetlight Manifesto could maybe be called post-ska! Ska-minded but avoiding the common tropes of the subgenre and using it more intellectually
Someone tell me why I don't really like metal, but I think that Black Sabbath is one of the best bands ever? Every single person in that band (I'm talking about original lineup) is so damn talented.
It's sad that Ozzy made them change their name to Heaven and Hell when they reunited with Ronny James Dio without him, Though that might have been Sharron's idea. And it was also deeply disappointing when Ozzy was found to be back on drugs.
