music bits

It's been a while, so I spent some time today going through Ishkur's guide to Electronic Music today. If you like things that beep, take a look.

For those of you who I owe mix CDs - if something on there inspires you, let me know - I may have it. Most of my electronic stuff, though, falls in the big red "industrial" balloon on the trance page.

The topic of genres also comes up in a problem I have - a lot of the genre categories on my music suck to the point of uselessness (and in itunes, come across as "0" "35" etc. - these are from winamp genres). What I need is a better guide for genres - what genre, for example, do I put Leonard Cohen or Bjork in? LC has done a lot of stuff over the years. For the electronic stuff I've been poking away at Ishkur's guide and using that. I know of nothing that really covers other kinds of music though. CDDB, freedb and musicbrainz don't tend to have useful genre info (which is how I got in this mess in the first place). Anyone have any ideas?
