|10 Albums That Influenced My Music Life|
Just 10 albums that brought me to the musical level that I'm at now, this ranges all over the place, so yay
This was probably the 1st album I ever listened to as cliche as it sounds, my dad was/is a big Pink Floyd fan. I think if I didn't listen to PF when I did, I wouldn't have gotten in to rock and instead would've embraced my older sister's R&B/Rap
One of my favorite albums of all time, there are videos of me dancing to "Sledgehammer" when I was 2, and I still do it damnit! DON'T JUDGE ME!
Follow the Leader
Korn hasn't been the same to me, I only enjoy 3 of their cds now. My friend Andre introduced me to Korn in the 7th grade and that kinda changed my perspective on rock; considering the hardest thing I was listening to at the time was The Wallflowers, but we'll get back to that part later. I finally discovered that there was some music out there to vent with at my young, confused age
An album I didn't aquire later in my life and wish I had earlier. each song feels like it was made and crafted for someone to connect to. I still connect with songs like "This Time" on a nearly daily basis
I can't count how many times my sister and I had to rebuy this cd for my dad b/c we both kept stealing it from him and destroying it from overplay. Possibly the only ambient album I'll charish, it definitly takes you places. this is totally not-homo by the way. the landscape here is infinate and it definitly broadened my puny little mind
Hail to the Thief
I know some will bash me for not putting "Ok Computer" and I do love "Kid A" but I have to take it to where I first introduced myself to Radiohead. It was abstract to me, I didn't ever get it on the first few listens, but as I went down the album line I realized I'd missed the genius of Radiohead and immersed myself as soon as I could.
Everything Goes Numb
If no one has noticed, Streetlight is my favorite band of all time, their debut album changed a lot for me, down to the friends I hung out with. I couldn't help but to listen in awe how these men were putting brass and punk together so beautifully.
As with Radiohead, I loved Sigur Ros' previous album ( ). Takk was my first love for Sigur Ros though, it was both powerful and soothing. They were doing things I hadn't heard in previous cds, cooing with their music, playing guitar with a violin bow to make such an eerie sensation (yes i know, jim page did it first), but it all fit together wonderfully
Holy Wood (In The Shadow Of The Valley Of Death)
I never knew there was so much anger and disgust that could ooze from one man, and even though he's not the worst out there, he definitly was one of the most noticible. Though at the age of 17, I rocked out with MM as hard as I could......until I found indie music, haha
|10||Nine Inch Nails|
And All That Could Have Been
This first NIN cd was their live album, and it blew me away. Like MM, at such an angst filled age all I could do was relate and sink myself more and more in to the anger
|1 and 10. yes.|
|The Wall is the best album ever so you win|
|The Wall is truly awesome, but imo Wish You Were Here is better.|
|At one point in my life I was obsessed with 3 and 9 as well, so I guess they did help me get to where I am today even though I hardly listen to either of them. I actually can hardly get through 3 anymore... I can get through 9 if I have a lot of time to kill.|
|I didn't read your comment on 2.|
Sledgehammer was my fucking jam back in the day!
|uh, 6 7 8 are good|
|Cool, 1 is what got me into music and it is still my favourite album ever.|
|10 is pure ownage.|
