I can see why people like this band, but I can't quite get into them myself.
10. Magnus Carlsson
One of the better Swedish male vocalists. There's a really cheeky sense of humour about his work, as well as some terrific melodies.
One of two bands that Magnus has been a part of. As with Magnus himself, a lot of fun.
8. Liquid Tension Experiment
Close to nothing better in the world. Instrumental Dream Theater, in a sense. Just amazing stuff.
6. Barrington Levy
He just can't seem to carry an album by himself.
It seems as though the Inner Mongolian throat singing style is a bit weaker than the Tuvan equivalent. I much prefer the Tuvans.
Now this is a real find. Leaving aside the odd irritating scream, we have reggae crossed with a sort of groove metal. I can't see how this could possibly work, but it really does.
3. Guns N' Roses
"Chinese Democracy" really isn't all it's cracked up to be. …
