I tend to prefer more upbeat music, or genres or songs that are relaxing or emotional. I feel that music should have a theme, evoke strong emotions, tell a story, or have a message or meaning beyond just simple enjoyment. Even better if it does most or all of those things. I mentioned in the IM thread, that my favorite song of theirs is Empire of the Clouds, for exactly that reason. It sends a definite message about human arrogance and carelessness, tells a tragic yet true story, and the melody and instrumentals evoke some very strong feelings of loss. For those who don't know, it is about the crash of the giant zepplin R101, one of the worst air disasters in aviation history. A beautiful yet very mournful piece, and one of their longest, which is probably why it never gets played on the radio, or even performed at their concerts.
