Albums that got me into different kinds of music,
|5||Lamb of God|
Not really a significant album by the standards of musical history, but my
metalhead cousin buying this while visiting from Buffalo and me hearing it
served as a catalyst for heavier (and much better) metal bands.
Not so much got me into other music (although I did go through a short but
significant classic rock phase because of this album) as much as it was the
only album I would listen to for a good three months as a sophomore. I
also based a major English assignment on this album's storyline.
"Who the fuck are Radiohead...oh yeah, they have that song on Rock
Band". Let Down is the greatest song ever recorded.
The Marshall Mathers LP
I used to hate rap, because all I'd heard was the trash on the radio (and it
was cool to hate it, as a nerdy white teenager who hung out with other
nerdy white teenagers).
They pretty much died with Cliff, but when I heard The Black Album at 13 it
got me out of Disney Channel music and into rock and metal. It was all
uphill from there.
