Personally I like any music that is (in my mind) well constructed,
sounds good, and isn't pretentious, regardless of genere. I do have a
penchant for Trance music, but I don't like to keep my options limited
so my taste ranges across a lot of generes.

A very small sample of what I listen to: 2pac, Alan Parsons Project,
Infected Mushroom, Above & Beyond, Electron, Seether, Jean Michael
Jare, demo scene music, c64 remixes, Amiga game music, Massive Attack,
Radio Head, Sybreed, Orbital, Moby, Tori Amos, Philip Glass... the
list goes on. Melody plays a big part in a lot of what I listen to,
but again I don't limit my self to just melodic music.

I don't believe suckless is a term that can be used to accurately
describe music because taste is subjective. Even the term 'well
constructed' can be somewhat subjective in music. For example,
somebody randomly mashing a piano might seem like a masterpiece to
some people, and pretentious and uninteresting to others.
