    If you post in this thread, it would be helpful to explain a bit about the music you linked to,
    and WHY you think it has outstanding merit. Just posting links doesn't share the magic ...

    I have commented on pieces of music that I uploaded in this thread, but generally speaking, I believe that music speaks for itself. If I have something interesting to say about a particular piece of music or artist, I will gladly share my thoughts.

    Spam ablation

    I hate spam... so lets see if we can put some context to this:

    Thievery Corp is an east coast duo that samples / remixes a really diverse range of music: Dubstep, Bossa Nova, electronica, jazz and so forth.
    In the early 2000's they did an homage to the 60's and 70's Verve label...

    Kurt Vile is one of the freshest sounding new artists I have come across lately. There are others but I dare not post them here because they won't fit the mold. Apparently, Kurt Vile doesn't either.

    For anyone who cares....

    had to re-read the rules

What it has become is wonderful, but I would still like to see a thread to post truly outstanding music on.

    This will become whatever it becomes, but the concept I had in mind is to not misuse "great" or "genius" and to reserve this space for music that has more than nostalgia or danceability, or catchy lyrics or licks going for it. I do not expect there to be any concensus whatsoever about what qualifies, so "that sucks" commentary has no useful place here. Perhaps there is a place for music being judged by its quotient of social commentary, but it is the music itself I am thinking of, not so much the lyrics alone. Recording quality could be considered, but that is actually "Recordings of outstanding merit," not Music of Outstanding Merit if you get my drift. We don't judge Bach on how well the performance was recorded.

    I will be so presumptuous as to propose an entry, Sandy Denny, No More Sad Refrains: The Anthology. This is an excellent collection of her work......

    Pearls Before Swine

    I've been listening to them since first hearing this album on a college radio station a number of years back. I never gave much thought to the name of the band until now...

    I'm sorry but as not a native English speaker I can't figure out what's the meaning of "Music of Outstanding Merit". Terrific music/art underrated?
