Today, 'tis been two whole years since Nag joined sputnik. Oh, how time flies. 20 awesome albums I discovered during this period, most of them if it were not for this here site, and many of them having become my all-time favourites.
|1||Alice in Chains|
I always slightly preferred Alice's acoustic side to their heavy one. Absolutely haunting performance.
Heaven and Hell
Note that Paranoid is still very definitely my favourite (and best) Sabbath album, but that one I had already heard before joining.
Basically opened my eyes to punk.
Made in Japan
Sure, I had heard Machine Head. But did I know that live albums could be so stunning? I don't think so.
A very recent addition. Only knew Enjoy the Silence prior to listening this in full, but have come to love the entire album quickly. Despite that, ETS is still the best track here.
|7||Edge of Sanity|
Most unique piece of death metal I've heard.
My parents used to play this to DEATH when I was a kid. Then, I hated it. Now, I adore it.
I know, late to the party.
The Number of the Beast
This is the best Maiden album, and you know it. I know Powerslave is fantastic, I know their first album is, but this cannot be topped. I mean, Hallowed Be Thy Name, man, Hallowed Be Thy Name, the greatest heavy metal track ever created. Don't you dare disagree with me there.
Axis: Bold as Love
Hendrix's albums all have some inconsistency flaws, but this has three of his best, and my three favourite songs: Little Wing, Castles Made of Sand and Spanish Castle Magic.
Thanks Mike Allen, who introduced me to John's solo work. Anne just tears you right apart.
Sad Wings of Destiny
Fuck Painkiller, this is their best album.
In the Court of the Crimson King
Epitaph is a masterpiece beyond any. 21st Century Schizoid Man is one of the most unique tracks every recorded. The title track is one of the most haunting and hypnotising things I've ever heard. What more could you ask for?
Before they turned into commercial crap, Live were actually kicking some major butt in those marvellous 90's, and this is easily their best work, despite also being the most popular.
I was in love with Secret Meeting the first time I heard it.
Her version of Gloria rocks, and this is a classic. Listen guys.
Took me forever to get into (I was a Bends fan), but now I regard it as one of my essentials. Karma Police wins.
|19||Red Hot Chili Peppers|
Blood Sugar Sex Magik
Like anywhere else, the stuff of Californication was huge here, and I only knew Give it Away (which I hated) and Under the Bridge (which I loved) off this, and after one listen I couldn't possibly understand why this was regarded as their best. Now though, it makes perfect sense.
|20||Third Eye Blind|
Third Eye Blind
One of the few bands here that I would never even have heard of since they're completely unknown in Europe. Now, this is one of my favourite albums. Special credit goes to, once again Mike Allen, and BigHans for convincing me of this record's impeccable qualities.
|Every time I hear "Nutshell' on 1, chills run up my spine.|
|Nutshell rules so hard, one of the first songs I learned how to play on guitar. Happy Anniversary Nag, great albums here.|
|Happy Anniversary. Schmexy list you got goin' here.|
|OH MY GOD|
ive put that Patti Smith album on so many of my lists because its fantastic. Gloria is absolutely fantastic.
|Whoa, you're a couple months older than me here. I've been here since October 2008. |
|whoah tomorrow is my 2 year sputnikversary, we basically joined at the same time|
|wooo shout outs|
List is unbelievably awesome
|^that's fucking crazy! Congrats!|
|congrats dude. and yeah dude, 99% approval rate with that many reviews is beast.|
|Awesome list, happy anniversary. Powerslave>Number, imo. Number has way more filler, even if Hallowed Be Thy Name is awesome.|
|Nagrarok has reviewed every single Priest album....my jaw is still dropped. That's a lot of Priest!|
|Haha, thanks for all the compliments guys. Right now I'm also very happy BECAUSE HOLLAND MADE THE WORLD CUP FINALS!|
|so right on Sad Wings of Destiny.|
|Yup, that game should be awesome. |
|congrats 2 days will be my 1 year|
