RE: Music that helps you write/concentrate
Space Music. Plain and simple. I was into punk and before that metal. I went to college but was never able to perform academic reading or writing with that stuff in the background.

I wandered upon space music. echoes.org, hos.com, di.fm space. this will train your brain.

RE: Music that helps you write/concentrate
It really depends on what I'm doing. If it's something almost mind-numbing I find I listen to softer music. If I'm writing code, though, I almost always need heavier music (hard rock, metal, etc) to get my mind in the zone and start pounding out a set of decent features.

Baroque music has been said to help you concentrate and study better;

I have made playlists for this very reason. I absolutely need this with headphones if I am in an office or public environment. If I am at home I can work in utter silence, and concentrate better than anywhere else.

Lately I have been able to concentrate for long periods of time on tasks, unlike ever before. I think it is due to reading a lot.

RE: Music that helps you write/concentrate
I'm personally a fan of marconi union - ambient and super spaced out which lets you read without getting distracted.

Also, I've always found the Inception soundtrack to be amazing for getting in a zone with a goal. You get a lot of work done that way.

Massive attack is also great if you like a little more energy.
