Traditional radio is a travesty to the musical realm. I fear that American radio has stagnated the pool of music to the point of putrefaction. My only reprieve before Pandora was Total Rock out of Great Britain. Total Rock helped keep me updated on new and exciting bands.
With Pandora, I feel like I have discarded my plastic sword in favor of a mirror sword. One tuned to seek out my most valuable plunder! However, I still feel the need to keep my plastic sword in tow. There are still MANY bands and albums Pandora lacks in their library.
With that, I invite you to share the wide selection of Battle, Symphonic, Goth, Power, Progressive, Black, Alternative, Punk, Pop rock, Industrial that I have accumulated to this day! So bring out your loincloths and plastic swords people! "To Holmgard . . . and beyond!!!"
