Most Hypnotizing/Melancholy Music Artists of All Time

Based off entire albums that create a conscious dream state, not just because they made three or four melancholy songs I.E. Eminem's "Haley's Song" or Led Zeppelins "Stairway to heaven" although both those artists had quite a few very great dazing songs, the majority of their music is loud, fast, hard, and not peaceful...

The Top TenXW

1Jackie EvanchoJacqueline Marie "Jackie" Evancho is an American classical crossover singer who gained wide recognition at an early age and, since 2009, has issued an EP and five albums, including a platinum and gold album and three Billboard 200 top 10 debuts .

The quietest audiences I've ever been in are those watching and listening to Jackie perform - until the song is finished, that is. Then they become the loudest. - Trancas

She transfers more emotion to her audience than anyone I've ever experienced - be it joy, hope, sadness, love, tragedy, or inspiration. Now at the age of 14, her voice is maturing from simply amazing to spectacular.

Brooding pieces like "Moon Over Ruined Castle" and "Lovers" are difficult even for the best adult singers. Jackie delivers them with emotional punch and earnestness. - BobG

Jackie's performances at the 2014 Memorial that concert were suitably subdued and deeply moving. She knows how to convey emotion!

A lot of people think they are too soft. that's the best part. Preferably one of their earlier albums like "Parachutes", after a few albums they started leaning more into pop-rock but their old stuff was good... - HTML_RuleZ_D00D

7Led ZeppelinLed Zeppelin were an English rock band formed in London in 1968. The group consisted of Robert Plant (Vocal), Jimmy Page (Guitar), John Paul Jones (Bass, Keyboard) and John Bonham (Drums). The band's heavy, guitar-driven sound, rooted in blues and psychedelia on their early albums, has earned them recognition more.

Even though this goes against what I said on the board, they were like 60%-40% on metal-rock to slow folk-rock music... - HTML_RuleZ_D00D
