Game-changer Albums

These albums are basically what have sent me racing towards all sorts of new music. The majority have been purchased in the past 2 years. or 6 months... for that matter
1dredg
Catch Without Arms


This was one of the best decisions I've ever made. During my early college years, I typically just blasted Pantera and Nonpoint everywhere I went... which got old pretty quick. This album showed me how beautiful music can be made without having to wait 20 minutes for the instruments to kick in. Lead to: El Cielo (their best), Radiohead, Muse, Dillinger Escape Plan, everything
2Coheed and Cambria
From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness


epic and fun. The REAL start to my Coheed collection and that's a collection i'm damn happy to be in possession of. to think, i used to loathe these guys in high school. (high-pitched voice, of course)
3Massive Attack
Collected


its a little hard for me to sit down and really let something sink in... especially when a good lot of it is electronica. but this best-of set has some awesome tunes including: Live With Me, Angel, and Protection
4Rage Against the Machine
Rage Against the Machine


in high school, politics are not exactly on top of people's priorities. however, being as stubborn as i was, i had no intentions of worrying about my feelings, girls, and mushy shit. and thus, i found Rage. my inspiration to pick up a guitar and the band that made it abundantly clear: music can send one hell of a message
5The Dillinger Escape Plan
Miss Machine


The first song I ever listened to by DEP was "Fix Your Face." And I was almost overwhelmed by how much heavier it was than everything else and yet, it was so much more. FYF lead to Panasonic Youth and thus, I got this album as quickly as possible. Still listening to this day and the bridge in Panasonic Youth remains one of my favorite moments in music.
6Minus the Bear
Planet of Ice


Finally. Chill music I could approach and enjoy. Technically brilliant, effortlessly enjoyable
7Eminem
The Marshall Mathers LP


I have always hated rap. maybe it was because that's what everyone listened to; maybe because all i heard back in the day was 50 Cent's "Candy Shop," but the MMLP put a new face on everything. This is violent, reckless, intelligent rap by one of the great lyricists of our time.
8Tool
Lateralus


I had Opeth here, but to be honest, they're just an awesome band. Tool opened up doors in every direction. After researching the album, I started to explore irregular time signatures, down-tuned guitar techniques, new bands... the whole shibang.
9Thrice
The Alchemy Index Vols. I & II


The first Thrice album I ever purchased. I was slow to warm up to it, but the depth of the music as well as the intriguing contrast between fire and water has kept this album interesting for many years. This also lead to the discovery of the Thrice discography, Protest the Hero, classic rock, Massive Attack, etc.
10System of a Down
System of a Down


The band that started it all. The album that started it all. This was my first foray into heavier music and its longevity is unmatched. When i was 14, i worshipped this album... hanging on its every word and every note. I will forever reference it as one of the most important pieces of music, not just for me, but for rock in its entirety.
