|My Favourite Albums|
I'm getting bored...
Reason? You ask for a reason? I thought you reviewed music?
This could easily be #1, as it was what cast me into the throwes of progressiveness. The standout here, as a mediocre guitar player, is Capillarian Crest. I listened to this album for what seemed like ever last year, it blew my mind. The concept, climbing a mountain, sounds kind of stupid when read like that, but when added to Mastodon it gets a whole new meaning.
|3||Between The Buried And Me|
This also could be #1, but just because I got into it later than I got ino 1 and 2 it gets this position. Its pretty much 64:31 of pure unadulterated orgasm produced in guitars, digeridoos, bass, keyboard, drums, accordians, strings, who knows what else? My mate once gave me a test where he fast forwarded halfway through a song to a completely random bit, and I could guess the song within 5 seconds. That's something I'm sadly proud of.
I stupidly forgot to put some songs from this album in my favourite songs, but I will not make that mistake now. Even though this band has pretty much gone to shit, I can't dispute the fact that this is nu-metal's peak.
The album that made Tool more of a phenomenon than just a standard rock band is amazing. In some ways better than Lateralus, it has received countless playbacks on my Ipod and thoroughly deserves its position here at #5.
One word - Bleak.
|7||Protest The Hero|
Yeah, this is friggin awesome. How fast can guitarists get before thier fingers break?
Killing With A Smile
My favourite Aussie band, and my favourite Aussie album. These guys are amazing in concerts, great value for money, and psycho as.
|9||Between The Buried And Me|
Slightly not as good as Colors, just for the fact that it wasnt as progressive. But still, the number of standout tracks are still present, its got Selkies, Backwards Marathon, Roboturner, the title track, I can't wait til I see them live.
|10||Queens Of The Stone Age|
Songs For The Deaf
QOTSA were probably my favourite "metal" band back in the day, and this was one of my most played albums back in the day. The sheer stonerishness is just awesome and endless.
Vol 3: The Subliminal Verses
When I first heard this, it changed me for ever pretty much. Gone were the days of listening to the Killers, Green Day, John Butler and all that. Even though it does fuck me up, it still garners a place here, and 11 seems like the best spot to put it.
Master Of Puppets
I suppose this should be higher, but I dunno... I'm not necessarily obsessed with the thrash scene... BUT THIS! Far out, I was raped from face to toe and then my cadavers were mutilated, screwed in what used to be my arsehole, yeah... Sounds like Cannibal Corpse.
|13||Rage Against The Machine|
Rage Against The Machine
Another album that changed me of eternity, it brought out many questions in me, it made me question why does society do the things they do... all the politcal bullshit that shouldn't matter but does anyway.
Lead Sails, Paper Anchor
I give all that read this permission to cut my balls off.
|15||Black Rebel Motorcycle Club|
I dunno why I liked this, I just did.
|I saw PWD on saturday, with August Burns Red and Architects. Swell show!|
|RATM should have been on my overrated list. |
same, they went off
signed my shoes 2
|I was really just there for ABR, met them and all and shiz, nice blokes. |
|some really cool stuff, props for BTBAM, Tool, RATM.|
Too bad about #14 lol :P
wish i could have seen august burns red on their aus tour.
|Boognish, do you like ANY music|
|dude if 14 is on your favorites list, SACK UP to a 5 rating chief|
there's no reason LSPA should have a lower avg. rating than Avenged Sevenfold's self-titled
|nice list, has some of my favourites|
|# 4, 11, 12, and 13 are great albums. 14 is a bit terrible though, with the exception of some songs. Good list though.|
|just becuz you're bored doesn't mean that anybody gives a fuck about your favorite albums which happen to be the same as everyone else's. I fucking hate these lists!|
|lol id say 4, 11, and 14 are not usually on sputnik user top album lists|
|Whats your reason for including #1|
|You don't need a reason to include Lateralus.|
