    Default What do you think is the most beautiful genre of music?

    I'm gonna have to say progressive rock as a whole, almost everything from the genre is something that I could have a nice cry to.

    Underground hip-hop and old school rap. I'm not talking the rap on the radio, I'm talkin rap you gotta search for. Rappers that actually speak true lyrics and rap about hard times, society, our govt., how generations are brainwashed, how they literally lived on the streets, how the life in the hood is, etc. They open you mind to reality.


    This is some good grass dude!

    Classical is the most beautiful, honestly. You don't need words to tell you what to think about what you should feel. You interpret the music for yourself.

    Personally, I think Art Rock is one of the most beautiful, namely A Perfect Circle. Just look at some songs like "Judith", "3 Libras", "Orestes", and "Gravity", and you should see what I'm talking about. Though, my favorite genre is Progressive/Alternative Metal, namely Tool.

    Though Classical would be the most beautiful.

    There is beauty in everything if you're willing to look. Except dubstep.

    But really, how much really differentiates this from "what's your favorite genre of music"? I'm pretty sure that most people will just answer with their favorites/what they listen to most. Unless they're answering with something so beautiful that listening to it too often just hurts.

    Well then, I will be the exception to that. I don't think Eurodance is the most beautiful music genre ever, but it's still one of my favourites. Same goes for symphonic and power metal, though much of it is still beautiful.

    But as for what I really think is the most beautiful music genre ever, I actually have three answers. The first one is without a doubt the winner here so far: classical. Specifically because of all the complex yet meaningful melodies that often come with it. For me, the beauty in the melody itself best comes through if the piece is played with only one musical instrument, which is usually the piano (although Toccata and Fugue in D Minor on the pipe organ = most ominously beautiful thing ever). If it's a grand symphony with multiple instruments playing at once, it may be all spectacular, but just not as special in my opinion.

    The second one is new age. Not only is it beautiful, but relaxing as well. Again, it's the melody that really gets me with this genre, although not for its complexity, but for its sheer simplistic beauty coupled with the atmospheric nature of the song. It doesn't really matter whether it has vocals or not. Most importantly, these songs tend to be very spiritual in nature, and with each listening seem to momentarily lift the mind into a higher state of consciousness. Especially with me having strong spiritual beliefs, this really resonates with me especially.

    And the third is I guess not one specific genre, but it's the songs that originate in musicals. Why? Because they carry meaning beyond the scope of the song itself, which makes sense given they're typically written in context of a story of some sort, thus having a very cinematic feel to them. It's one thing to listen to "Castle in the Clouds" from Les Miserables by itself, which is by the way a stunningly beautiful song all on its own, all about an innocent fantasy about hope in the world. But put that into context of the entire depressing nature of the play (and now movie), and the whimsical nature of the song shines through even more. You definitely get that sort of additional-meaning concept with instrumental movie (and video game) themes as well, since it's often hard to know what the song is even about without the context of the movie with there being no lyrics.

    Yeah, I totally sounded like an eccentric philosopher with this post, didn't I? XD

    Hmm...for me it will be metal or post-progressive stuff. Mostly because of the really good lyrics or "beautiful" lyrics aha. Some of them hit home so I guess makes it easier for me to become obsessed with a song aha

    Trance. A branch of the Electronica genre. I think the name says it all. The unique thing about the trance I listen to doesn't have any lyrics, so the effect of the song differs from person to person depending on how they perceive the sounds. And if it does have lyrics, they are soothing, and don't change the aura of the the song at all. Think of it as the pure blooded predecessor to Classical music.

    Beautiful music can't be defined by one genre. It's in the notes.

    Classical music is the best don't get me started on it. And rock music comes second anything after that is meh.. Pop music nowadays totally sucks! Though I mostly listen to rock I love Hard Rock songs and indie music.

    I guess it depends how we're quantifying beautiful in relation to music. I think as has been hinted at, you can't just say genre's as a whole. Every genre has the potential for beauty in it's own way.

    'Beautiful'? That really only makes me think of Classical. Especially Renaissance choral music, like this.

    that depends, different strokes for different folks.

    It's really too subjective really.
