Hey, I was wondering...

Does anyone know any communities that are good for just discussing music related stuff? I mean, I just look at how there are 91 members of this community, but an awesome dicussion post, with so much potential, got only 5 comments.
This is an great community, don't get me wrong, and does what it's intended to with flair, but I'd also like to add a community specifically for dicussion to my list.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

"Marilyn Manson moves forward with a dramatic change in style, attitude and personnel by announcing the departure of longtime friend and bassist Twiggy Ramirez.
'I have spent eight months transforming this band and our new songs into an unstoppable juggernaut, and sadly Twiggy wasn’t able to make himself a part of it,' says Manson. 'Unfortunately, I feel that Marilyn Manson, as a lifestyle, is not where his heart is. So I have decided to let him go his own way, otherwise it wouldn’t be fair to us, the music, or especially to the fans. Although you can never replace a best friend like Twiggy, this album and new lineup will redefine anyone’s idea of what Marilyn Manson is capable of.'

The Golden Age of Grotesque, which is under the production team of Manson, Skold and Ben Grosse is near completion and expected this Fall on Interscope Records."
