    Experimental is an adjective after all. "Anything done in the spirit of experimentation stands out as such and deserves to be tagged with it. This tag is a goldmine for people who want something more from music and have no clue where to start."

    экскрементал. что за отвратительный тэг, убрать бы его к чертям собачьим отсюда. ебланы им тэгают почти всю музыку. если музыка экспериментальная - это не значит, что надо, блять, тэгать её таковым жанром, это значит, что надо перечислить элементы смеси жанров. в общем, люди, которые тэгают "эксперименталом" , попросту не разбираются в жанрах музыки.

    This tag is defective and must be destroyed.

    Making weird rock is not the same as making experimental music...so: Animal Collective? Sonic Youth? The Mars Volta? If they are your top experimental artists, you clearly have not reached the meaning of experimental music....
