My song of the moment is called "Colors Fading" by AnaVana (with tildes over the n's.)  They're a fusion group that classify themselves as reggae/rock, but on this song they blend Brand New Heavies style neo-soul with a rock edge using tastefully distorted guitars and some rocking piano.  

Definitely a fantastic song and one I think music listeners should check out, because it blends genres and has a mass appeal.  I love the chorus.

If blending genres and having mass appeal or signs of good music, then sweet Jesus, Linkin Park is better than Dvorak.

Dream Theater - Money (Dark Side of the Moon Cover)

I've been debating whether or not to get Tarkus because I heard that side one is fantastic but the rest of the album isn't as great. A great epic is enough for me to get an album, though, so I may pick it up in the near future.

The Dark Side of the Moon Official Bootleg DVD is awesome, by the way.

What the hell are you saying?  Are you putting words in my mouth?  I'm talking about two aspects of a song that I think makes the song good.  The song seamless blends the disparate genres of R&B and rock.  The song has a mass appeal beacause it has a great hook, is something everyone can bob their head to, and is neither too loud nor too soft to turn people off regardless of what style of music they listen to.  Damn good song.  I'm really passionate about music and like to share music with people that I think is really good, and I think a lot of people would really dig this song.  

I fail to see where this Linkin Park/Dvorak comparison is coming in.  And who's to say classical is one single genre?  There are many subgenres of it.  Schubert sounds different from Tchaikovsky who sounds different from Brahms.  Back in ye olden days, classical composers were blending genres all the time, to the point where a lot of people thought it was pure noise and now, people think they're genius compositions.  Dvorak's New World Symphony has a LOT going on in it.  

Throughout history, music has always been about fusion in many ways.  Jazz fusion in particular has always been huge what with ethnic blends like Indo-jazz (blending Indian music with jazz) or Afro-beat (blending jazz with African style drums) and all that.  Fusions of flavors make things interesting.  And the most enduring music of the ages usually is the stuff that breaks boundaries and fuses flavors in ways that excite and delight.  And in the olden days of classical music, there was tons of genre bending and genre blending going on.  Many composers defied conventions and at the time they were thought of as crappy-ass noise and now we think of their stuff as genius.  I'm not saying a band line Linkin Park will reach that status, but all I'm saying is that pushing the sonic envelope of genres and mixing genres has been around since music's first been played.    

And are you saying I know nothing about music and/or have idiotic mainstream taste?  Then you, sir, are mistaken.  I know a lot about music.  I've studied some music theory, I can read both bass and treble clef, and I happen to be a decent bass player (I was jazz trained when I took lessons.)  I listen to a wide variety of music from ethnic, classical, children's music, all the way to brutal death metal.  I honestly do listen to everything, so long as it's good.  I look for independent artists and support local/independent music scenes.  How many people do you know that have even heard of Anavana?  My favorite genre happens to be progressive metal which happens to have a lot of neoclassical touches and some amazing musicianship.  

And, yes, "Colors Fading" is a terrific song by a terrific band.  Give it a listen and then judge accordingly.  

And so fucking what if some kid prefers the music of Linkin Park to Dvorak?  Different strokes for different folks.  I can't stand broccoli, my housemate devours is like candy.  In addition, I know some extremely intelligent and well-educated people who don't exactly have sophisticated tastes in music.  It's all about what music tickles your mojo.

I'm not really sure how you can pan an off-handed, sarcastic comment into a two-page retort, but alright ^^
