|My Cd Collection|
Albums I actually own on CD. I started regularly keeping up with new releases and buying CD's in the past two years, but I've always had some CD's, so expect an insight into my dark musical past.
This has a certain aesthetic like no other. Perfect imo.
|2||Black Stone Cherry|
Black Stone Cherry
A fine debut. A pity they've got far more commercial with subsequent albums.
I first heard of this band through "Like Eating Glass" being featured in Tony Hawk's American Wasteland. Great album, but never liked their other stuff.
|4||Devin Townsend |
Got a signed copy of this when I saw him do a acoustic gig.
Picked this up blindly, knowing I liked You're Living All Over Me and a greatest hits compilation of theirs. Luckily it's now become one of my favourites of their's.
|7|| ||Dinosaur Jr.|
You're Living All Over Me
A Dramatic Turn of Events
Got this on day one. Fucking disappointing.
Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes from a Memory
Classic. DT at their best.
Blew me away when I first streamed it. Bought it with the bonus DVD for ?6.66 /m
Just a great rock record.
One of my most recent purchases. Got it with a signed poster. It's cool see this band rising from obscurity so fast. Great live, too.
|13||Godspeed You! Black Emperor|
Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas...
Amazing. Got me into exploring post rock.
One of my favourite recent metal bands. As a drummer, Mario is an inspiration.
The Flesh Alive
Brave New World
Not my favourite of theirs, but it was cheap.
The Great Cold Distance
Got this with the 5.1 mix.
Welcome to Sky Valley
Cool sludgy, stonery album. Those riffs.
|19||Lamb of God|
Got it cause I liked Ghost Walking. Don't listen to it much though.
|20||Led Zeppelin |
Led Zeppelin IV
Anything LZ is classic, obviously.
Crack The Skye
Discovering Mastodon from my friend is one of my defining memories of my A-levels.
Took a while to grow on me, but now when I'm in the mood for ear pummeling, nothing else will do.
Kind of Blue
Not really a jazz fan, but this can be good for the evening.
Got this cause it was recommended on here as a greatest hits of sorts. Great songlist.
Silver Side Up
Uh-oh. Yeah, I was a young teenager.
The Long Road
None of these are terrible albums though. Just kinda dull.
Got this with the 5.1 mix, as did I with Heritage, Still Life, Watershed and Ghost Reveries.
So different to their other releases. I have to be in a certain mood.
Another 5.1 mix. Great band, very solid live too.
Pretty rare grunge album no one's heard of. I like the songwriting.
Will eventually get the other PT 5.1s, but for now this is my only one. Really enjoyable album.
|39||Queens of the Stone Age|
Most recent purchase. Streamed it a few times, loved it. I haven't heard a rock album as good as this in a while.
|40||Queens of the Stone Age|
Songs For The Deaf
|41||Rage Against The Machine|
Rage Against The Machine
I got the 20th Anniversary edition. It didn't really need the remastering cause the production is really good as it is.
|42||Red Hot Chili Peppers|
By The Way
Used to be a big fan when I was younger. They've gone way down hill since then.
|43||Red Hot Chili Peppers|
Good album, BUT REALLY BLOODY LOUD PRODUCTION.
|44||Red Hot Chili Peppers|
I actually really like the two new songs on this.
|45|| ||Richard Hawley|
Standing At The Sky's Edge
It was cheap. I do like what I've heard from the guy though. On this he's like a psychadelic Johnny Cash.
My favourite band from the grunge era.
Grace for Drowning
Yeah, I'm a big Wilson fan.
Got all his albums in 5.1
The Raven That Refused to Sing
Rize of the Fenix
Been a fan for a while. Good album, but not as funny as their first one. Packaging's kind of shit too.
|53|| ||The Who|
One of those smaller bands I like to keep track of. I preferred their older sound though.
Close to the Edge
I needed some older prog in my collection, and this was cheap. Eventually I'll get In The Court of the Crimson King.
Not a brilliant album, but an interesting one. The first track I heard from it, "Astrid Falls" is probably the best track on there. Makes me want to check out the rest of Dan Swano's stuff.
Dethroned & Uncrowned
I pledged for this and got a signed digibook copy with 5.1 mix.
