    Check out, The New Deal; Gone Gone Gone. Great album. It's house/techno by this trio from Canada. There's bass, drums and keyboards, and together they create some of the best, great vibe producing music for your listening pleasure. Also, check out anything by The Flower Kings. I always recommend TFK to anyone, but it's not at all for everyone. Each one of their 70+ minute albums are an entire experience in it's own. Check it out.

    The Postal Service.
    Check out their album "Give Up"

    Also check out every album by A Perfect Circle, and if you're into concept albums like Pink Floyd's albums, then check out every album by Tool as well. They have the same vocalist, Maynard James Keenan, who has the greatest vocal range and vocal versatility in rock music today. Of course to fully appreciate what they do, you'll have to be familiar with unorthodox time signatures, tonality, pinpoint guitar harmonics and effects, and certain metaphysical and spiritual concepts.
    They're incredible.

    Tool's bomb, but that falls more into metal and not nessesarily up-lifting...maybe I'm wrong...Check out Tool for some of the best metal out there, but not nessesarily if you're trying to get funky fresh.

    Well, quite a few tracks off of Lateralus are uplifting and often life-affirming, like the title track, "Lateralus", "Disposition", and "Parabol & Parabola". I'm sure there are others.

    Tool isn't metal at all anymore. Opiate was the closest thing to real metal, and even that lost out on the metal-calibre drums. Undertow continued to add grunge rhythms to the melting pot. They began to remove the riffs and the purpose of the guitars changed to creating an atmosphere and an environment. Tool definitely turned into a Progressive Rock band with AEnima and Lateralus. Although it changed from metal, it didn't become Nu-Metal.

    Metal actually has very solid dividing lines, but ultimately it depends on the listener to draw those lines for his/herself. That's why people don't consider bands like Disturbed, Drowning Pool, and other nu-metal bands (yes, a misnomer) metal.

    Metalheads(the type that hate nu-metal) tend to lean toward bands that remain faithful to the elements that defined each sub-genre of metal. While some creativity and insertion of new elements into the can go over well with fans, going too far with changing the genre, like getting rid of of the complex guitarwork, and replacing the guitar solo with a breakdown instead of adding one along with it, consequently turns it into the repetitive chunk chunk sound of nu metal, and it becomes Limp Bizkit and Korn. Nu-Metal rarely works.

    I agree, Tool wasn't metal at all. IMO they don't even have too many good songs. I've only heard the radio ones and maybe 3 others though. Only liked one of them i think.

    If you really wanted good metal, just go to any metal forum. You can find tons of bands like In Flames, Behemoth, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Darkthrone, Emperor, Cradle of Filth, Death, Bathory and tons of others. They aren't too uplifting though. All of these have good guitars too if that's what your looking for, though if you want, Joe Satriani is probably one of the greatest guitar players in the world and you can listen to some of his stuff. I don't listen to prog metal much, except maybe Dream Theater.

    I don't really mind nu-metal myself, some bands i can't stand and some I listen to sometimes.
