OK, so this is a little spin on your "What's you top 10 albums?" thread. In this one, you have to pick an album you liked for each year, counting down from 2005 to 1996. So, as an example, you might do:

2005: Coheed And Cambria - Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star VI
2004: Taking Back Sunday - Where You Want To Be
2003: Brand New - Deja Entendu
2002: Goldfinger - Open Your Eyes
2001: Blink-182 - Take Off Your Pants And Jacket
2000: Something Corporate - Ready...Break
1999: The Get Up Kids - Something To Write Home About
1998: Saves The Day - I'm Sorry I'm Leaving]
1997: NOFX - So Long And Thanks For All The Shoes
1996: Descendents - Everything Sucks!

Undoubtedly, it will get a lot harder the further down the list you go, but try and complete as much of it as you can.

By the way, that wasn't my list, I'm still comprising mine.

I haven't been listening to music that long either, but there are definately albums I've listened to that came out before I began listening.

On MMMDI, you can search bands and just click on their discography. That will have release dates for all their albums

Sigur Ros - ()
Nile - In their Darkest Shrines
Arturus - The Shame Mirrors
Dredg - El Cielo
...And you...trail of the dead - Source Tags and Codes

Because you haven't listened to it enough. It grows like my pen!s at a dog show.


Also, I don't know why I forgot aWS - they win 2004 with "Mute Print" on my list, far above "Exile in Oblivion". aWS is probably my favourite band, all time. Their other albums are all pretty close to ending up on the list.
