|Musical Evolution/de-evolution 1991 - 1997|
how my musical tastes changed from being 12 yrs old till 18 yrs. I believe that during teenage rrrrryears everything happens so fast and you're hearing all this new music and experiencing rrall rrrkinds of sub-cultures, different people, forming your own opinions for the first time and rrrrrrcertain albums become a soundtrack for your experience as you grow up......not to rrrmention rrranything past that age I was buying music left, right n rcentre and my tastes rrwere rall over rrthe rplace....plus I'm old as fuck and listing all the way up to 2013 is gonna rrtake rway too rlong.
This is the album that really sparked my obsession with music....it also sparked my
ridiculously huge obsession with Nirvana. heh
After hearing Nevermind I began to sought out everything that had anything to do
with Nirvana.....Lets just say it didn't take long for me to wear out these cassettes.
Borrowed this tape from a friend and made a dub copy, I really got heavily into
grunge at this point.
Bought this on a vacation to the USA with my Dad. I had heard a few songs at my
friends' house. At this point I was starting to skateboard, so I started hearing bits
of skaterpunk from this point on.
yeah yeah yeah......still hooked on Nirvana.
Stop Making Sense
Bit of an odd one out, my folks used to play their music a lot and this album was
Still primarily a fan of grunge at this point here. Nirvana....what else is new?
For some reason I liked this album way more than Ten.
|12||Alice In Chains|
First experience with this band, a recommendation from a friend. Heavier than I
thought they'd be.
Ride The Lightning
First metal album! I proceeded to collect every record I could by them. Ride the
Lightning was my favorite.
|16||No Use For A Name|
The Daily Grind
This was the first Fat Records band I ever heard. The first skate punk band I'd ever
heard, man they played FAST! ha ha
Something Green and Leafy This Way Comes
Yup got into punk rock from here on in
Bedtime For Democracy
Another band to which I was determined to buy the entire catalog from
Punk In Drublic
Remember the music video for Black Hole Sun" yup I had to hear the album
And again one of those bands to which I bought the whole catalog from
Led Zeppelin II
Just first zeppelin cd I ever bought, loved em from this point on.
|24||Nine Inch Nails|
...And Out Come The Wolves
Saw em live as they were touring for this album. Bought it at the merch stand.
Reign In Blood
Slayer, being rooted in hardcore punk they really appealed to me....probably more
than the other thrash bands namely Megadeth and Metallica.
|28||Rage Against The Machine|
Never heard rap/metal until this. Loved it.
|29||A Tribe Called Quest|
The Low End Theory
One of my buddies was into hip hop, I started giving it a chance.
Still a big fan.
The video for "Just" was cool.
still a favorite
Again, same buddy who got me into hip hop, made a copy of this cd for me.
|35||The Velvet Underground |
The Velvet Underground & Nico
Heard "This Magic Moment" on the Lost Highway soundtrack.
|36||The Chemical Brothers|
Dig Your Own Hole
Got a taste for electronic stuff
Throwing 2 extras on here......Not their best album but it got me into them, and Dinosaur Jr as well.
Good band...even though this was a compilation it spent a considerable amount of time in my cd player
