Your discoveries?

I sincerely hope it wasn't like this for all participants...

I've listened to most things I wasn't familiar with. The one thing that made me go out and buy an album was Opeth. And I've ordered Locomotive today.

Other "unknowns" I really liked were Pineapple Thief, Steven Wilson, FM, Mandy Moore...

Thanks for turning me on to them, folks!

I've listened to some, but there have been quite a few things that I didn't know, and there just isn't time to listen to everything. I do think it's important to put Youtube links in to make it more convenient.

I never heard Groundhogs till the beginning of this poll. That's one which really stood out for me. Quite liked Cressida as well, and Diagonal was very interesting. There are more, but mostly these three stuck with me.

I haven't had time listen to everything I'm not familiar with in any depth but have tried to sample stuff to get an idea if it's for me or not and have found quite a few things I really liked. A bunch of European stuff that algroth posted for one and the Harmonium track from another list. I liked the Mandy Moore one too. Really liked that Decemberists track as well, like a 21st century Steeleye Span.

A quick correction - it's Mandy More, people, not Mandy Moore. Please don't scare me.
