Personally, I really like atmospheric sounds, kind of like in Change by the Deftones. What do y'all like?

Good lyrics and a singer that can really emote.

I also really like music that tells a story. One of my favourite things right now is Radical Face's family tree series of 3.5 albums where each song explores a person in a family tree.

Percussion, and how it is used to punctuate and emphasize.

Generally a strong hook/melody and a consistent rhythm, usually something that's punchy sounding and contains guitar. You got a lot of music like this between the 80s and 00s but sadly this criteria seems to have gone out of fashion, as I can think of barely any songs from the past 5 years like this, except maybe by a few older artists.

Violin is a winner. Beautiful sounds from the violin.

Funky music time signature (red hot chili peppers used this a lot in their prime)

Singers who don't sound too whiny.

When I'd been in high school (LONG time ago now), I used to dig telephones in songs. Can't really say why.

Lately I've noticed that I like a lot of layering. A bunch of smaller 'random' sounds coming together to help make the whole. Not like the band Art of Noise (if anyone remembers them!), but just in general a layered mix that can still have individual sounds/instruments/noises be picked out and enjoyed. If any of this makes sense...

Intense rock/metal guitar and passionate(non-screamer) vocals. That's what makes up some of my favorite songs
