Reggae taking over

I'm just curious how many people on this board only listen to reggae music. Though I listen to other types of music I understand the propensity reggae has to kind of take over.

Hey, when I first started to get into reggae 7 years ago that was all I listened to 24/7. Now that I have a wife and kids I listen to it as much as possible and my wife enjoys it but not to the degree that I do so compromises must be made. My two middle boys love it though as I took them to Roots Mountain the last year that that festival took place. Truely a sad loss in the reggea seen.

I really don't listen to much else. I get really into one genre and that is all I listen too. I used only listen House Music but then I changed and the music I listened to changed as well. Now, I can't image why I never listened to reggae. Other styles of music just don't do anything for me. Because reggae is relatively new to me, I have so much to learn and so many artists to buy.

I pretty much only listen to reggae music. i also often wonder if there are people out there like me, who eat, drink and sleep reggae. I started listening to reggae music in the late 80's early 90's and slowly it took hold. I do listen to different types of reggae though- roots, dub, dancehall but reggae nonetheless. Sometimes i feel a bit closeminded because it's hard for me to even try to listen to anything else. Reggae for me is not just music but a way of life.

I prefer reggae to other types of music because it consistantly has a holy spirit inspired message. I can completely get into other types of music that are holy spirit inspired as well, that is why I am so looking forward to Abdel Wright. I check the four songs on his website and they weren't reggae but definately rasta. Big up to conscious music!!!!!!!

I listen to lots of other genre's of music. Alternative, Jazz, Hip Hop. Depends on my mood.

Reggae is probably the genre I listen to the most.

and I like all other forms of music
one love
As a lot of you know me and I know alot of you. I work with all forms of music from A-Z-Arabric-Zouk. As long as the musicians play and sing like professionals (better be Damm Good) and the music is good thats all we can ask for.
My Passion and Soul will always be in Roots, Rock, Reggae,from the late 60's to the early 70's till now Reggae has been in my blood too long and I hope and pray it gets into your bloodstream too!

I listen to all types - but over half my CD collection is reggae - the other half mixed. My Record collection is another story - I switched to CDs about the time I was really getting into reggae...

I too can't wait to see Abdel Wright, although I'm not so sure he is as far removed from reggae as everyone keeps saying... maybe he just listened to the Dead a little more than most (LOL) - true a lot of Ben Harper type writing going on - but the music is very sparse and personal (The first thing I thought of was Redemption Song - maybe just because of my expectations)...it will be interesting for sure..

Rock, good old rock. Jazz, Blues - Instrumental death metal ( I guess you could call it) heavy, soft and My favorit. Tribalistic based music such as tribal drumming and old old rythums.
