The Evolution Of Taste

Just a quick storyline of how my musical taste has changed and the albums that proved to be good gateways for me into different musical genres
1Breaking Benjamin
We Are Not Alone


All Starts off with ya generic radio rock kinda stuff
2 Chevelle
Wonder What's Next
3Grinspoon
New Detention
4The Living End
The Living End
5Limp Bizkit
Significant Other


Then went through the Nu-Metal stage......oh Nostalgia
6Papa Roach
Infest
7Superheist
The Prize Recruit
8Sunk Loto
Between Birth and Death
9Yellowcard
Ocean Avenue


Pop Punk Phase....Kinda a weird jump after Nu-metal but i think it was more of an influence from one of my friends who to this day listens to nothing else
10Sum 41
All Killer No Filler
11Saves The Day
Stay What You Are
12Taking Back Sunday
Tell All Your Friends
13Karnivool
Themata


Then got back into Rock and at the time, the Alternative/Progressive Rock scene was starting to really take off in Australia
14The Butterfly Effect
Begins Here
15Atomship
The Crash Of `47


Not Aussie But incredible Drum Work and needs to be listened to by more around here!
16Dredg
Catch Without Arms
17Rishloo
Feathergun


This Lead into the Modern Prog Genre and beginning to have the patience to absorb longer song lengths and different structures, and was about the time i joined here.
18Karnivool
Sound Awake
19COG
The New Normal
20Riverside
Out Of Myself
21Devin Townsend
Ocean Machine: Biomech


Listened to this album and was blown away by the atmosphere created and basically was my gateway into enjoying music not only for the melodies and vocal hooks as i did before but also for the atmosphere created and density that some artists can create
22Isis
Panopticon


Another album that bowled me over on first listen and started a bit of an obsession with post-metal in general
23Pelican
Australasia


My First experience with a purely instrumental album and really opened the door into Post Rock for me which i've been delving into alot recently aswell
24Neurosis
The Eye of Every Storm


Any mention of post-metal isnt complete without some neurosis love, cant get enough of all of their albums from souls at zero and afterwards.
25Mogwai
Come on Die Young


First Post-Rock record i gave a shot at and loved the use of samples and the atmosphere created, i know young team is considered there best but this one will always hold a high place in post rock for me
26Irepress
Sol Eye Sea I
27Yndi Halda
Enjoy Eternal Bliss
28Xavier Rudd
To Let


As a kind of separate branch i've been delving into the folk/acoustic side of things aswell, great for a change of pace
29The Mountain Goats
All Eternals Deck


Probably my favorite folk artist, so many great albums its hard to find one thats well above any other.
