Mainly bands that have had a couple of hits and then just go by the wayside.

I also listen to a lot of small bands that haven't made it big yet.

I checked out Room Eleven on imeem and I like their sound, a bit contemporary but largely along the lines of Blues and Soul from what I heard. I particularly liked One Of These Days and Lovely Morning.
I'm guessing you've probably heard of artists like Melody Gardot, Beth Rowley, and Incognito, based on your suggestions.
I would personally recommend Jazz artists like Joshua Redman, Kyle Eastwood, and Gwilym Simcock (all instrumentalists).

Anyway, swinging back a bit more on topic, it seems like I've finalled succumbed to the Vocaloid following, albeit to a more limited degree.
I feel there's something about those synthesised voices that don't quite work for songs that involve techno-pop of some kind.
The Genki Rockets sound works better, maybe because in a Macross Plus kind of way, people are still singing to create the voice (not a fixed sample like Vocaloids).

Does horror movie soundtracks count? Because I love scores done by Goblin in most of Dario Argento's films! =D

Music that can be enjoyed purely through our ears without any visual aids are included as a genre. Generally speaking, the soundtrack genre is extremely broad and can include aspects of different, more distinct genres.
That said, I would think that a soundtrack for a horror movie is quite specific actually, especially for themes of suspense and terror.

True, true... ^_^

You should watch some of Dario Argento's movies! Claudio Simonetti (the lead keyboardist for Goblin) composes the best soundtracks in horror films. Argento's best movie in m opinion is Suspiria! ^_^

For the most part, classical music, film scores, and anime soundtracks/songs.

Just plain ol Metal for me.
Black and Death are my favorite subgenres though.

Interestingly enough I also like a lot of J-pop, J-core and J-trance = w =
