|15 Classic Albums|
Bangkok Shocks, Saigon Shakes, Hanoi Roc
Sleazy, raw and ready for a Friday night out on the town, this classic helped usher in the "glam" generation. Recommended track: "Tragedy"
Too Fast For Love
By far the best release in the band's illustrious discography. A perfect combination of hard rock. metal, a punk attitude and pop sensibilities.
Hvis Lyset Tar Oss
Lead by Varg's one of a kind voice, this is some of the most dense, emotionally satisfying black metal ever to exist.
|4||Spite Extreme Wing|
These guys while consistently amazing throughout their short discography, never really got the attention they deserve. Vltra is their magnum opus, combining black metal, punk and classic rock in a daring combination that pays off in dividends.
Far removed from the robotic shred that dominates most of his other albums, Electric Tears is a great exercise in chill guitar based bliss.
A colloboration between Buckethead and Viggo Mortensen, this one of kind album is filled with weird ambience the haunting prose of Mortensen.
Refined, classy and majestic black metal.
Necroticism:Descanting The Insalubrious
Carcass's first (and only) album played in a pure death metal style, this release sees them start to incorporate the melodic edge that would follow them on subsequent albums while retaining the crushing of traditional death metal.
|9||The Black Crowes|
The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion
Probably still drunk from last night
Guitar based ambient that incorporates elements of classical amongst other genres. Really great stuff, the music will strike you at your core.
Octave of the Holy Innocents
Really awesome acoustic jazz from this Swedish born bassist.
The Sparrow and the Crow
Probably the thing I enjoy best about William Fitzsimmons are his lyrics; he's not subtle, he doesn't write with crazy metaphors, everything is just upfront and honest. He also happens to be one of my favorite vocalists, his soft, whispered voice is just crazy alluring.
"Ms. Jackson" by itself brings this up to a 4 and the other songs are just icing on the (ice-cream) cake.
Shut the funk up, you know you love it too.
Unusual lo-fi ambient that has some crazy addictive pop (AND REGGAE?!) hooks and ridiculously haunting female vocals.
|THANK YOU for 9. I did an entire Black Crowes discog and I think maybe 10 people commented on it total, band needs way more love.|
THIS ROOM SMELLS LIKE HOTEL ILLNESS
|I've heard some of this, but 6 is pretty interesting, you know, with Aragorn making music and all. Also, for 3, Det Som En Gang Var never loses it's touch.|
In the vein of 13, list needs more GZA's Liquid Swords.
Cool list, some stuff here that seems like i'd enjoy it.
|@BigHans- The Black Crowes are criminally underrated. |
@ Hyperion- I think I have the 3 Burzum albums rated as classic, but Hvis is my all-time favorite for them.
|I don't know much about William Fitzsimmons, but I heard a song on last.fm called When You Were Young that was fucking awesome.|
Oh, and of course, MOTLEY ftw.
|Hell yeah Motley. Honestly if I didn't think I'd get flamed for it, I'd probably have six more of there albums on here. And William Fitzsimmons is really really awesome.|
|Fuck anyone who flames hair metal.|
|Got 8 not too long ago, such a great album. |
|Burzum can very quickly go from completely boring to great. Hvis Lyset Tar Oss and Det Som Engang Var are his best (when i said Det Som earlier, i meant the song on Hvis, not the album). |
However, i may be one of the few people who actually kind of enjoy his ambient records. Hermo-r A Helfer is one of my all time favorites.
|I don't hate his ambient stuff, but at the same time I really need to be in a weird mood to give it a listen|
|used to love Necroticism, but Symphonies is probas my favourite now|
|I'M SORRY MS. JACKSON!!!!|
I AM FO REALLLL
|Thanks. Tbh the first three Carcass albums are constantly changing as favorites|
|needs more and more bm duude|
|needs moar dre|
|Forgot about Dre|
