|Finally 1000 Comments|
After 2 and 1/2 years, 11 reviews, 12 lists, and 244 ratings, I have finally reached my 1000th rcomment. I've been meaning to make a list about my musical progression, and I figured rthere won't be a better time than this. The list is organized chronologically by year, naming rartists and specific albums I obsessed over through the years that in turn led me to other rartists and shaped the musical tastes I have today. It begins with the first album I ever rsought rafter and listened to from start to finish, and ends with the most recent artists that rhave affected me and my musical tastes significantly.
Still Not Getting Any...
Yes, Simple Plan was the first band I obsessed over, and I thought they
were the best because they had catchy melodies with oh so relatable lyrics
for a 6th grader.
Picked it up on a whim one day and it became the next album I loved and
regularly listened to from beginning to end. Now I find this band to be
I was in the beginning year or two of junior high and listened to what
everyone else listened to: radio pop rock.

How to Save a Life
Their music was catchy and touching to me. I loved each and every song.
|10||Fall Out Boy|
From Under the Cork Tree
I'd only heard their radio hits until my drum teacher gave me this album to
play along to. I fell in love with it after a few months and considered Fall
Out Boy my favorite band for at least a couple years after that. They were
the first band I made a point of extensively listening to every track they'd
ever produced. I loved everything about their music. I still find them to be a
solid band but obviously not the best.
|12|| ||Panic! at the Disco|
A Fever You Can't Sweat Out
By cliche, I discovered Panic through Fall Out Boy. Like most, I thought they
sounded similar at first, but then I discovered how gloriously different they
were. I heavily anticipated Pretty. Odd. and went to the concert when they
came on tour.
|13||The Hush Sound|
The Hush Sound opened for Panic and I found them to be super interesting.
I looked into their stuff weeks later and eventually got their whole
discography. Wonderful band.
|14||My Chemical Romance|
The Black Parade
I entered a stupid emo phase my sophomore year because I felt betrayed
by all my friends. Pretty typically turned to My Chemical Romance. I still
enjoy them from time to time but not nearly as much as I used to.
|15|| ||Jack's Mannequin|
The Glass Passenger
I'd heard some of Everything in Transit and enjoyed it, so I bought this
album upon its release. I loved it, and it was comforting compared to the
angst and anger of MCR. It began to lead me out of the silly dark clothes
The emotional songs were just what I needed to get my fix of coping music
without being all angry about it. Another huge help in moving on from the
darkest part of my life. Band was all I listened to for an entire family trip.
With the exiting of the emo phase came a ridiculous party phase. I hung
out with stupid people and said stupid things and listened to stupid music. I
felt like that was the cure.
|19|| ||...and then I found Sputnik|
No More Stories
I was looking around at FYE and recognized this album from being highly
acclaimed on Sputnik, so I bought it just because I could. I thought it was
weird at first, but I liked the way it made me feel, and I found it to be super
interesting, and completely loved it after a few more listens. It was
extremely pivotal as the first "abstract" album I listened to and loved, and
opened a wide door for this entirely new chapter in my musical progression.
Aim and Ignite
Heard some buzz and checked them out. Best decision I ever made. They
still stand as my favorite band of all time today.
For some reason, it took me until the next summer to bother listening to
the Format. Dog Problems changed my life almost as much as Aim and
Lead singer is a member of fun. Was a natural find for me, and I loved them
intensely for several months. Still do, of course.
Bought High Violet upon its release based on hearing lots of positive things
about the band, but when I decided that Fall to take a step backwards in
their discography and buy Boxer as well, it was one of the most influential
albums in my entire life, and still is. The most beautiful and comforting
album I've ever heard. Most accurately illustrates me through music.
The Age of Adz
Strangely enough, this was the first thing of Sufjan's that I heard besides a
few singles in earlier years. I thought it was perfectly cool at first, but after
a few listens it clicked. It was just about as powerful as Boxer in personal
identification. One of my favorite albums of all time, changed my
perspectives on life.
|28||Laura Stevenson and the Cans|
Album of this year. I obsessed over it for several months and still love it
with a large part of my heart.
The Crane Wife
I had the King is Dead and Hazards of Love for several months before
venturing further back into the discography. Enjoyed their older stuff even
better. They're one of my all time favorites and I own all 6 of their LP's.
Lead up to me seeing them live this summer which was amazing.
|Here it is: comment #1000! I'm now a bit more of a veteran than I was before. Also, I made the list one spot short. The most recent band I've fully loved is Typhoon. I saw them open for the Decemberists, found them to be beautiful, and now own their full discography. Now I'm just waiting for the next artist to come along that affects me significantly. |
|Man, this site did wonders for you, lol. the whole time I was just facepalming. Then again I used to consider BMTH one of my favorite bands in 2007-2008 so...|
|Good list, nice work, congratulations.|
It also took me nearly three years to reach 1000 comments. I don't know how some of these people accumulate so many comments in such short times. No lives, I suppose.
|Idk how many comments ive made because ive had so many accounts |
|1000 too many|
|on sputnik, that's hardly an accomplishment. really.|
|Yeah. Balls has 30x more comments than this dude. m/|
|this is actually a good list, but the whole "OMG I HAVE X COMMENTS" thing is fucking stupid. good list though.|
|I only have like 3.8 comments and that's really small. |
|I hit 1000 comments a couple weeks ago. I only have 1 review though. But I'm glad sputnik's changed your musical tastes lol.|
|Haha I'm not really OMGing aids. Just a milestone. At least 800 of them have been made while I'm at work.|
|I've been posting about a month and I'm almost at 1k lol. No reviews yet, and 1 list.|
Man, this site did wonders for you, lol. 
|It took me about a year to reach 1000. This year I went from those 1000 to my current 4400 (prob a bit more, but just 'estimating' here).|
|1000 comments in 1 month?! Sheesh. |
|Congrats Jake (is that an okay nickname for Jacob?). =)|
Great list too. I think we all went through a pop-punk phase when we were young. =)
|Haha thanks! Yeah actually most people call me Jake. Are you usually Steve?|
|It differs. Some friends call me Ste others Steve... so whatever works for you. =)|
Man, I was huge into FalloutBoy too used to love From Under The Cork Tree with a passion.
|Yeah! I still think it gets too much hate. As far as pop-punk goes it's some of the best I've ever heard, with creative lyrics and actually distinct vocals. I was always bothered by all those semi-famous bands that sound the same: Cartel, Boys Like Girls, All Time Low, etc.|
|Same but FalloutBoy aren't terrible. In fact I really like Infinite on High.|
It's a pretty decent album.
|Yeah! I even loved Folie a Deux, or however it's spelled. Pretty far from their previous style, but I still thought it was fantastic. I even miss it. I need to break it out again sometime soon.|
|I actually haven't listened to it yet. So I don't know what it's like. Really want to though. =)|
|Go for it for sure. Some of the catchiest, best-written songs of their career.|
|I hate how some bands get blind hate though. =/|
Some people take music and other mediums way too seriously.
|Oh I know! It's so annoying... the people who can't just agree to disagree and are always attacking others for not having the same opinions.|
|Someone today told me I don't understand music because I thought lyrics were important. It's insane... like, why can't we enjoy the aspects of music we want?|
The whole idea of rating albums on here is a bit weird... like why do we do it? And write reviews? I dunno. =/
|Haha but you have lots of ratings and 6 reviews. I actually love being able to rate things. I use this site's rating definitions in my mind to rate like everything I ever listen to, watch, read, etc. But yeah it's really interesting and weird to stop and wonder why and how we declare certain media and other things good and bad.|
|i think balls made comment counting obsolete|
|I know and I can't get why I do it. It's like; not necessary you know? We have a comment section. Plenty of room to state an opinion and talk about why we like/ dislike it. =)|
I don't think it's wrong to do it but it's weird how we take our opinions and sum them up in a number, you know? =P
Sort of funny how we work some times.
