|My All Time Favourite List|
Only as of August 2008!
I do have an open mind for the future... Ha ha.
I still haven't found a fault, or have gotten sick of howling 'It's soooo goood too seeeeeeee' at the top of my voice. Flawless and unforgettable.
Heartfelt and emotional, but also uplifting and warming. Make sure you get the Jap Import with 'The Haunting' on it.
Introduced me to a world of music outside of 80's metal and radio trash. Thanks Bellamy and co.
I have always been a 'chair man. Don't go so much on Powderfinger, and I find Silverchair's middle-aged stuff better than the Fingers'

Dear Diary, My Teen Angst Has a Body Count
Perfect teen angst album. "Mirror, Mirrroorrr." Take THAT world! Also, the unbelievable drumming and pitch of vocals. What the hell happened to these guys...
From the summer road-trip to the air guitar, I didn't put this album down for a year. The title track and 'We Still Kill the Old Way' were the best. Also a band that has gone off the rails.
|7||The Mars Volta|
De-Loused in the Comatorium
An album of incredible brilliance. Technical and inspirational, as well as terrifying and tiring.
|8||Dance Gavin Dance|
Downtown Battle Mountain
This is how to post-hardcore.
Under the Silver of Machines
For me, a mixture of Muse's space rock early tendencies, mixed with the polish of Anberlin and the vocals of... Well I can't really compare them.
|10||Volcanoless in Canada|
Volcanoless in Canada
Intense fun with acoustic technicality and epileptic ryhtyms.
The General Electric
Pure, unadulterated Aussie/Kiwi rock. Throw your guitar at the roadie, grow your hair, government's suck etc. Awesome stuff.
Revolutions Per Minute
These guys are the measure-stick for Punk/Rock music and justifiably so.
|13|| ||Panic At The Disco|
A Fever You Can't Sweat Out
Where did this come from!? Was such a fun hit for the year before it hit radio in Aus.
|14||The Living End|
Not one weak song.
United Paper People
Awesome first album to match their impressive demo work. Also alot of fun live.
|some good stuff here. props for putting panic up there.|
|14 is great and i still love for being the first TLE CD i got, but all their other CDs (barring their first 2 EPs which I haven't heard) are better|
|Get a hold of the EP's if you can man. I picked one up in a discount cd store on the outskirts of Perth for 5 bucks and it's good. Raw, but really good.|
I do like the other albums... This is one that I can listen to the WHOLE way through.
|13 looks really really out of place on there, personally I didn't think it was THAT bad, but it still looks weird on a fav. list surrounded by the likes of 3, 7, and 12.|
|I won't sit here and wank about how I listen to all sorts of music or anything.. buut I dunno. There's another 10 albums that could go on there, but PATD... I dunno. That album still gets a good rotation on my iPod, and it was the bees knees when I first heard it all those years ago. It definitely isn't in the same company as an Absolution or RPM...|
|Man, "Cities" and "Absolution" look great together...;-)|
#'s 2, 3, 6, 7 and 12 are excellent. I have to say, though, that I enjoy "The Fake Sound of Progress" a bit more than "Start Something," and "Origin of Symmetry" a bit more than "Absolution" (that's not really fair, though, because OoS has become one of my favorite c.d.'s as of late) ("Stockholm Syndrome" is one of their absolute best songs, though).
Great, great list!
|totally agreed on 6. 'Liberation Transmission', wtf?!|
|for a guy with a screen name that say "Hammet_ownz" you'd think there would be some Metallica here. Unless you're talking about a different Hammet?|
|Wade Hammet was my guitar tutor who set me up with a profile on mx ;) he thought he was pretty funny putting his name on it. |
But it means I have been lambasted by Metallica fans for not having another 't' on the end of hammet.
|yay for the 'vool. Themata owns!|
Shihad are also good
