My Expansive Musical Adventure

I live in a tiny town of about 700 people and am currently a freshman in high school. I live in the Midwest and am surrounded by people who only listen to Country, Pop, and Mainstream rap. I am one of the few people who was a more expansive musical taste. Yes, I realize that makes me sound like a giant hipster/douche. And just like any good hipster/douche, I hate it when people criticize my music. However, I recently realized how often I criticize other people's musical taste too. And this is where my adventure begins.

I sent out a text message to about 25 people asking them to burn me a copy of their 5 favorite CDs. I got many 'Why's?' in return. And my reason was basically what I said in the list description at the top of the list.
2Sleeping at Last
Keep No Score

This is where the clincher comes in. I told them I was going to give them a copy of my favorite 5 CDs too. All of the people I texted knew the kind of music I listened to and just said ok.
3The Dangerous Summer
Reach for the Sun

I knew right away maybe five people would listen to the CDs I sent them. I didn't really care. I've gotten 55 CDs so far, and have listened to about 40 of them.
4Brand New
The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me

I've enjoyed about 7. I mean, I've 'enjoyed' most of the pop ones as a one time novelty, but I don't see me listening to them again any time soon. However, I've listened to them objectively, and so now I can say I don't like them, and actually have reason to back up my opinion.
You Are My Sunshine

I'm planning on continuing this experiment for a while. In about a week I'm going to text the first 25 people and asked if they listened to the CDs I sent them. I know what the response is going to be, but hey, maybe someone will surprise me?
