    Bon Jovi would be relatively ignorable if not for his many horrible, horrible fans

    Same deal with Bruce Springsteen

    No. Absolutely not. He's awful with or without his fans.

    Match-cut,

    I am looking for recommendations for good introspective driving music. It doesn't need to be ambient, though, and can have vocals... recs?
    The Boat People - 9
    The Power of the Dog - 7.5

    There's also this band called The Beatles (sp?). I've heard they're pretty good.

    I'll throw a few out there in no particular order:

    Can - Tago Mago & Ege Bamyasi
    Penguin Cafe Orchestra - Self-titled
    Talk Talk - Spirit of Eden
    Spacemen 3 - The Perfect Prescription
    Glenn Branca - The Ascension
    Dadamah - This is Not a Dream
    Slowdive - Souvlaki & Just for a Day

    Massive Attack - Mezzanine

    Why is it called trip hop anyway? The only through line I see is the reliance on beat.

    EDIT:

    and I'll throw out a classic. My Bloody Valentine - Loveless, unless like me you've listened to it to death.

    Massive Attack's earlier stuff definitely had more of a hip-hop influence, especially Blue Lines. I know they hate the term itself.

    To add to those mentionned: Ride - Nowhere, and most of Mogwai's stuff.

    Mat Kearny's album Nothing Left to Lose is perfect summer night driving music. It begs for the windows to be rolled down.

    Smile Can't seem to help it...

    Saw Kings of Leon at the end of September and have been listening to Only By Night, Between the Times, and Aha Shake Heartbreak...over and over. I swear, it makes no sense, I can't understand half (maybe 3/4) of what Caleb (lead singer) says/sings, but it doesn't seem to matter.

    If Lynyrd Skynyrd came out now, I think they'd sound like KOL.

    I am loving this new Norah Jones album, The Fall, probably her best since her debut. Maybe even surpasses her debut. It's a wonderfully moody piece, with some songs that pierce right into me.

    I'm kind of addicted right now to Springsteen's Magic. Some of that comes from the album's very obvious efforts to ape Born to Run's epic sound, but there are times when it not only comes close, but matches that earlier album's earnest grandeur. "Magic," "Devil's Arcade," and "Girls in Their Summer Clothes" are top-notch.

    Listened to Graduation by Kanye today in the car. Oddly, not too much of it struck me hard, save "Can't Tell Me Nothing" and "Big Brother," the latter of which was a really fun combination of admiration and antagonism toward Jay-Z. Must listen again later on.

    From what I recall, Graduation was a huge disappointment to me, especially coming after the awesome Late Registration. I'll give it another chance, though.

    Arcade Fire's Neon Bible is fantastic, and better than Funeral. Also, with Wilco's Sky Blue Sky I've gone back to really liking the band. Even though A Ghost is Born was very good, I was kind of disappointed after the amazing Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. Now to find out if their lastest album is actually any good at all.

    There are only a couple of albums that just totally resonate in my gut as soundly as Funeral does. It's a deep-down, maybe orgasmic, experience that I can't do justice in words, but I'm just saying it's probably better than Neon Bible
