A mother was surprised to receive a letter from a neighbour about her son's loud music habits - because it praised them.

Leanne Power, from Queensland, shared the unexpected letter on Facebook after it was dropped in her 29-year-old son's mailbox by a 'metal head neighbour'.

The note starts with 'Dear random neighbour/stranger, this may be completely unexpected and very random but over the past few weeks I have heard you jamming out with a guitar/vocals, sometimes drums too'.

It goes on to say: 'I have also heard you play your music at a high volume. I wanted to take the opportunity to say... you rock.

'When I hear you play music such as Karnivool and Twelve Foot Ninja I cannot help but sing along as it seems we share a very similar taste in music.

'I ain't even mad, seriously. After moving several times where my neighbours played various styles such as "doof doof", female power ballads/girl power crap and country, it is literally music to my ears to hear a decent bloody track.'

The neighbour then goes on to list some of his favourite bands - including Monuments, Tesseract and Periphery - and recommends Ms Power's son, Reece Grant, listens to them if he had not already.

Ms Power said it was refreshing to see such a nice note.

'When you hear all the bad neighbour stories, along comes a good one,' she said.

'He's [Reece] in a band and he's been practicing at home and making a lot of noise in suburbia and he just received this random letter.

'He first thought, "Oh no, someone is going to tell me to shut up and stop that terrible noise." But he was pretty chuffed.'

Ms Power said they were yet to find out who the kind neighbour was.

'I just think it's really lovely, in this time when everyone is always being negative and quick to say negative things, it's great to see someone say something positive,' Ms Power told Daily Mail Australia.
