  • 23:51 @Sugarwilla A lot of pop-rock, with excursions into the jazz, R&B, folk, electronic, punk, alternative, romantic, and modern genres. No rap. #
  • 23:53 Romantic and modern here refer to those eras of "classical music" - I generally prefer the less orthodox but still tonal compositions there. #
