07.06.13 Rec Me Some Acoustic/Laid Back Shit07.05.13 My Cd Collection

My Cd Collection

Albums I actually own on CD. I started regularly keeping up with new releases and buying CD's in the past two years, but I've always had some CD's, so expect an insight into my dark musical past.
1Agalloch
The Mantle


This has a certain aesthetic like no other. Perfect imo.
2Black Stone Cherry
Black Stone Cherry


A fine debut. A pity they've got far more commercial with subsequent albums.
3Bloc Party
Silent Alarm


I first heard of this band through "Like Eating Glass" being featured in Tony Hawk's American Wasteland. Great album, but never liked their other stuff.
4Devin Townsend
Unplugged


Got a signed copy of this when I saw him do a acoustic gig.
5Dinosaur Jr.
Beyond


Picked this up blindly, knowing I liked You're Living All Over Me and a greatest hits compilation of theirs. Luckily it's now become one of my favourites of their's.
6Dinosaur Jr.
Bug
7 Dinosaur Jr.
You're Living All Over Me
8Dream Theater
A Dramatic Turn of Events


Got this on day one. Fucking disappointing.
9Dream Theater
Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes from a Memory


Classic. DT at their best.
10Enslaved
RIITIIR


Blew me away when I first streamed it. Bought it with the bonus DVD for ?6.66 /m
11Foo Fighters
Wasting Light


Just a great rock record.
12Ghost B.C.
Infestissumam


One of my most recent purchases. Got it with a signed poster. It's cool see this band rising from obscurity so fast. Great live, too.
13Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas...


Amazing. Got me into exploring post rock.
14 Gojira
L'Enfant Sauvage


One of my favourite recent metal bands. As a drummer, Mario is an inspiration.
15Gojira
The Flesh Alive
16Iron Maiden
Brave New World


Not my favourite of theirs, but it was cheap.
17Katatonia
The Great Cold Distance


Got this with the 5.1 mix.
18Kyuss
Welcome to Sky Valley


Cool sludgy, stonery album. Those riffs.
19Lamb of God
Resolution


Got it cause I liked Ghost Walking. Don't listen to it much though.
20Led Zeppelin
Led Zeppelin IV
21Led Zeppelin
Led Zeppelin


Anything LZ is classic, obviously.
22Mastodon
Crack The Skye


Discovering Mastodon from my friend is one of my defining memories of my A-levels.
23Meshuggah
Koloss


Took a while to grow on me, but now when I'm in the mood for ear pummeling, nothing else will do.
24Miles Davis
Kind of Blue


Not really a jazz fan, but this can be good for the evening.
25Mogwai
Special Moves


Got this cause it was recommended on here as a greatest hits of sorts. Great songlist.
26Nickelback
Silver Side Up


Uh-oh. Yeah, I was a young teenager.
27Nickelback
The Long Road


None of these are terrible albums though. Just kinda dull.
28Opeth
Blackwater Park


Got this with the 5.1 mix, as did I with Heritage, Still Life, Watershed and Ghost Reveries.
29Opeth
Damnation
30Opeth
Deliverance
31Opeth
Ghost Reveries
32Opeth
Heritage


So different to their other releases. I have to be in a certain mood.
33Opeth
Watershed
34Paradise Lost
Draconian Times


Another 5.1 mix. Great band, very solid live too.
35Paradise Lost
Icon
36Paradise Lost
Tragic Idol
37Paw
Dragline


Pretty rare grunge album no one's heard of. I like the songwriting.
38Porcupine Tree
Lightbulb Sun


Will eventually get the other PT 5.1s, but for now this is my only one. Really enjoyable album.
39Queens of the Stone Age
...Like Clockwork


Most recent purchase. Streamed it a few times, loved it. I haven't heard a rock album as good as this in a while.
40Queens of the Stone Age
Songs For The Deaf


Rocks.
41Rage Against The Machine
Rage Against The Machine


I got the 20th Anniversary edition. It didn't really need the remastering cause the production is really good as it is.
42Red Hot Chili Peppers
By The Way


Used to be a big fan when I was younger. They've gone way down hill since then.
43Red Hot Chili Peppers
Californication


Good album, BUT REALLY BLOODY LOUD PRODUCTION.
44Red Hot Chili Peppers
Greatest Hits


I actually really like the two new songs on this.
45 Richard Hawley
Standing At The Sky's Edge


It was cheap. I do like what I've heard from the guy though. On this he's like a psychadelic Johnny Cash.
46Soundgarden
Badmotorfinger


My favourite band from the grunge era.
47Soundgarden
Superunknown
48Steven Wilson
Grace for Drowning


Yeah, I'm a big Wilson fan.
49Steven Wilson
Insurgentes


Got all his albums in 5.1
50Steven Wilson
The Raven That Refused to Sing
51Tenacious D
Rize of the Fenix


Been a fan for a while. Good album, but not as funny as their first one. Packaging's kind of shit too.
52The Sword
Apocryphon


Cool band.
53 The Who
Who's Next
54Witchcraft
Legend


One of those smaller bands I like to keep track of. I preferred their older sound though.
55Yes
Close to the Edge


I needed some older prog in my collection, and this was cheap. Eventually I'll get In The Court of the Crimson King.
56Witherscape
The Inheritance


Not a brilliant album, but an interesting one. The first track I heard from it, "Astrid Falls" is probably the best track on there. Makes me want to check out the rest of Dan Swano's stuff.
57Katatonia
Dethroned & Uncrowned


I pledged for this and got a signed digibook copy with 5.1 mix.
