Wow, what a chart. I don't think I've ever seen such variation in artists and periods on this website. Though we don't share all the same taste I can appreciate that you're someone who knows what they love and is a bit of a music whizz. Definitely raiding this for music recommendations.

Sandy Denny og Fairport Convention langt opp på skalaen er jo bare en fornøyelse å se! Din smak for obskure og ukjente artister viser vel bare at kunstnersjelen er godt bevart! Jeg føler at du har en musikksans som virker langt mer moden enn min, selv om du er 27 år yngre! Stå på videre!
