As far as new music goes, A Perfect Circle is my pick. All of their albums are great to listen to all the way through, and they never get old.

A Perfect Circle is excellent besides the disappointment Emotive.

30 Seconds to Mars debut album is genius as well. Any of Porcupine Tree's work (Deadwing, In Absentia, Lightbulb Sun) is a must-have for ANY rock fan too.

Marillion, The Decemberists, The Mars Volta (obsessed with their De-loused in the Comatorium right now), and Pink Floyd are always great to listen too as well.

The Decemberists' "Picaresque" is my top album of the year so far. I'm giving an ear to the new Franz Ferdinand album at the moment.

absolutely anything by System of a Down
I've been wanting to listen to more NIN lately.

But I'm usually not into the heavy stuff as much. I used to be a metalhead. Cowboy Mouth is the best rock band ever. Not hard rock, but it's still rock.

Sugar - Copper Blue

Especially "Hoover Dam"

the mix is quite interesting--very heavy on the high end--needs volume!

Turn it up till your ears bleed to hear the beautiful guitar work. :D

Anything by the White Stripes does it for me as well. hated them the first few listens five years ago, then the whole "art project" concept clicked in my head. Jack White's "Ball and Biscuit" is a brilliant dirty romp.

I agree whole-heartedly with the Rush choice. Though I enjoy many of their albums, Moving Pictures is their masterpiece. To your list of classic rock, I would add some King Crimson and Yes.

Whatever they are, they rock. Their "Welcome Home" track (03) goes back to the Iron Maiden era, which rocks.

Great stuff there. However, exept from Yes that was already pointed out, I would add some Genesis albums to your list too:

1972 - Foxtrot
1973 - Selling England by the Pound
1974 - The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway

Three years and three masterpieces.

Funny you mention that. A few months ago my friend aas playing some Genesis at work, and I had no idea that there was actually good Genesis out there. I have been meaning to get some of their older stuff. Too bad I have two jobs and no money :\
