    If you like Enya, I recommend Loreena McKennitt.

    I am really an appreciator of music, I do not limit myself to just one genre but I always try to expand my music library, always looking for new music and new genres to listen, especially folk/native music from many countries worldwide. I also enjoy classical, soundtrack and epic rock music very much. But I'll try to make a list of my favorites

    If you're having trouble opening the music topic, just install a flash blocker plugin in your brower. No more slow loading, less annoying ads!

    @Sohl - could you recommend a specific plugin which works well and doesn't crash? What do you use?
  • SohlSohl Member Posts: 569 @ - Epic Achaean
    I use FlashBlock for both Chrome and Firefox.

    People that frequent the theater (or know how to navigate google) will know why.

    I didn't see Front Line Assembly anywhere on there. If you didn't accidentally omit it, you should give it a try.
