I go through fads where I obsess about an artist for a while, like ...

I'm not as keyed into genre classifications as I used to be. When you listen to enough fabulous acts of different styles you'll probably find something you like in any genre. I've enjoyed at least some music in all genres, but I enjoy very few songs the styles in Al's list. Not mad on country and country rock as a rule either, though Earl Scruggs, KD Lang, The Doobies, Allmans and Eagles have their killer tracks.
