Very difficult for me to classify it by genre. My preference is towards music where actual instruments are being played. That will generally put electronic music at a disadvantage, saying that I've listened to Shpongle today. So I can't really say that I dislike electronic music.

I don't like much rap or much 'pop' country. I do like some of each though. There's really nothing I don't listen to. The next 5 artists on my Tidal playlist : Trevor Something ( awesome retro synthwave ), Childish Gambino, Mazzy Star, Massive Attack and Blank and Jones. 5 from down the page: Eric Clapton, London Grammar, Aurora, Slayer and Lana Del Rey.

Influenced by our daughter, and my love of Soul/Funk, really getting into Bruno Mars. His latest album " An Evening with Silk". It has a retro Soul vibe, reminds of the Chi-lites, from a couple of tracks I've heard. Wicked.

Not sure mine can be delineated by genre.

I don't like country, but love some of Brandi Carlile and Oh Susanna.
Don't care for opera, but adore the aria from Lucia di Lammermoor and Viens, Malika (the flower duet) from Lakme.
Don't like jazz, but loved the jazz bars of New Orleans when I went there half a life ago.
Don't like heavy metal, though The Ace of Spades is a classic - I prefer a bit more originality in my guitar-based music.
I've never much cared for what populates the charts, but there have been exceptions.

I want music to engage me emotionally or kinetically - bands where I think they put musicianship over all else leave me cold.
