If people are creative or passionate with it, electronic music is absolutely great. But most popular electronic music sounds all the same or is horrendous and has no soul.

[quote="Christopherwillson"]I can't stand it either, it makes me sick and the fact that all pop music lately is all electronic doesn't make it any better.

enjoy some real music below ;-) (no intention to offend people who do enjoy electronical music)

This is off topic but when people say these things "real music" I disregard everything else they have to say and their existence. Who are you to say what music should be? I listen to electronic stuff and I listen to blues from the 20's. I listen to everything and saying no offense doesn't make it any less offensive.

for me music is something that contains instruments, maybe for you that's not true. fine.

If you consider artists such as :The Pet Shop Boys,The Postal Service and Owl City as ''electronic'' then I absolutely LOVE electronic music. I can't get enough of the above mentioned artists and I adore the album Give Up by Postal Service.

I collect film scores that are purely orchestral. When the composer introduces electronic bits, like Hans Zimmer does, it's a turn off.

I hate that crap that's played in clubs, and I'm not a fan of agressive, dirty basses, or the general song structure common in Electronic Music.

When "techno" ( what they now call ""electronica") first appeared in the early nineties I hated it.

But when a still obscure lady recording artist named abigail van Sziga (aka 'Abigail") came out with several mixes of her techno version of the guitar rock hit "Smells Like Teenspirit" by Nirvanna I was so blown away that it was "road to Damascus. And I became a instant convert to techno.

When I was a kid I couldn't stand electronic music! I thought it sounded dead, unorganic and quite scary. But that was mostly the repetitive dance stuff that came up at night on some radio stations I grew up with. Like dead white noise. I also didn't care for trance, Techno and such. And the video game music I grew up with was mostly orchestral thank you very much.

Electronic music? So, what are we talking about when we say "electronic music"? Do you mean Daft Punk? T-Pain? Skrillex? Kraftwerk? Depeche Mode? Nine Inch Nails? There's a huge amount of terrain to cover there.

For about as long as I've really listened to contemporary music, I've been interested in industrial music-- Nine Inch Nails, Ministry, Front Line Assembly, Filter. I also love progressive rock, and most of the bands I love from that genre-- from as early as ELP and Yes, and as recent as Tool, Porcupine Tree, the Mars Volta and Riverside-- have all done their own experimentations with synthesizers and programmed tracks. Often I find that electronic music has a uniqueness or complexity which, so far as my personal tastes are concerned, is hard to match with more traditional methods.

As my tastes have progressed, I've branched out into other artists-- Moby, the Prodigy, Björk, Röyksopp, the Knife. I've also been on a bit of an 80s synthpop kick lately.

Yeah Porcupine Tree did alot to open my mind to arty electronic music like Tangerine Dream. And art pop.

I don't like electronic stuff if it lacks melody or is too repetitive. But I really like it if people blend electro with other styles like jazz, hiphop or soul. Some pretty cool stuff out there.

I can't stand Dubstep. The lack of lyrics is why I don't like it. All it is is noise and every single song sounds the exactly alike.

i listen to some weird stuff, but none of it is unpleasant to me. In fact, it helps me get my mind off things. However my ears are very sensitive and detect all kinds of electronic artifacts, such as:

compression
noise reduction
(excessive) EQ
lossy encoding
auto-tune (ruined the 1974 Queen disc for me, i passed after hearing the samples)
various digital synthesizer tones (often heard in dubstep)

if noise reduction is done properly* it is undetectable except in direct a/b comparison with raw source material.
*meaning not in a typically ham-handed fashion.
