    I've been into Mumford and Sons lately too! I don't do much mapping, but when doing it (and writing, for that matter) I tend to enjoy more "epic" music, like E.S. Posthumous, or Paul Oakenfold... Movie soundtrack such as LOTR, Last of the Mohicans, Pirates of the Carribean, or Braveheart are great too. Anything melodic and relaxing yet inspiring. I also like listening to classical music while mapping: Beethoven, Bach, Giuseppe Verdi, Haydn, Mozart, etc.

    The Legendary Pink Dots, writing and mapping, are a common choice.

    I listen to a very wide range of music from Vivaldi and Bach to Faderhead and Rise Against Discography. Though, like Jaxilon I am not really a fan of rap.

    Usually I will make playlists of certain moods to enhance whatever I am working on. However, when I am painting or working on an image, not text, I tend to find a good audio book, I prefer science fiction and fantasy. I just finished LOTR and have started the Discworld series again.

    I have a bunch of stations on www.pandora.com that I use depending on what my mood is. I also just work in silence at times. I recently created a station using the band name "Silentium" and that seems to work pretty good. I have also been listening to a station created from "Red". Next week, who knows? I like stuff from instrumental to Heavy so it's hard to say.

    It really depends on the mood I'm in and/or what I'm doing.

    If I'm doing something creative, such as map or 3D work, etc, I'll tend to listen to something more upbeat.

    If I'm doing something very "fantasy-like", I'll tend to listen to music that evokes those kinds of images in my mind.. I listen a lot to the Lineage 2 soundtrack by Bill Brown for that.

    As of right now, I'm naming locations in a map I'm working on and so upbeat/heavy music would kinda be an ear-sore. So I'm listening to "Ghost" by the Devin Townsend Project. Here's a sample of a track from that CD: Heart Baby

    At the other extreme is Dev's heaviest stuff, such as this song off of Deconstruction. Same guy as Heart Baby.

    All in all, my musical tastes range anywhere from super heavy to super mellow with various stops in-between. All depending on my mood.

    I often listen to the LOTR soundtrack while working. Another good one is Inception.

    Silence for me, I find music distracting when I do mapping. But then I'm an odd-bird, I never turn on the radio when driving in a car, even alone on a cross country trip. I like music, but only in the right setting.

    Hello:
    I love all music from ancient tribal to rock to metal to jazz, to western classical to Asian medieval, and everything in between. I will sometimes choose music that fits the type of map I am working on. If I am working on a battle map it will be an aggressive set of songs. Usually I just let the play list shuffle.
