For the past eight years, the staff at MIRP have shown their wide range of musical tastes.  Susan sticks with metal, Jerimia tastes the water of nearly every genre, and Susanna stands firm on her favorites.  Born of Osiris is where Susan and Jerimia agree, Trivium, Attila, and Ed Sheeran are where Susanna and Jerimia agree.  Whose list are you most in line with?  Do you stick with one genre or do you listen to multiple types of music?
