Musical Milestones.

not a top 10 list or anything, just a list of albums that grabbed my attention and welcomed me to new fields of music.
1My Chemical Romance
The Black Parade

First album i bought, pretty much lived in it, so catchy and anthemic, sounded so amazing at the time. perfect for getting a confused 12 year old into decent music.
2Marilyn Manson
Mechanical Animals

So proud of myself for being a manson fan at that age, i was suprised how catchy and accessible the music is if you ignore his gimmicky and shocking image. worshiped this guy.
3Bring me the Horizon
Count Your Blessings

yeah yeah whatever. again, proud and suprised that i liked "Death Metal". i still think the bit at the end of 'pray for plagues' is awesome.
The Bends

enter sputnik, i found this site from the ratings section of a radiohead albums wikipedia page. not my favorite radiohead album anymore but after borrowing their discography from an older cousin this was the one that grabbed my attention at first. pyramid song, sweet jesus is it good.
5Animal Collective
Merriweather Post Pavilion

from the time i heard the beat/samples/whatever come in on 'in the flowers' i was hooked, even though it was difficult to 'get it'. was also into Sigur Ros, Arcade Fire and all that jazz at the time
Diamond Eyes

noticed all the hype and praise surrounding this album on the web, and i had always been intrigued by deftones sound so i bought it. uuuuuuurrrgghhhhh the crushing, huge, fuzzy wall of guitars, chino's soothing chorus' and deadly screams, the sharp, pounding, catchy drums, the beautiful electronics to add even more depth. oh and apparently there's bass too. my favorite band.
Jane Doe

i first came across converge in a kerrang magazine, strangely. "pioneers of metalcore" etc etc, i had to check them out. heard 'no heroes'... hated it, but something at the back of my head was niggling me- the odd, off tune guitar, rumbling bass and crazy drums and of course the horrifying vocals were strangely addicting to me. so yeah i bought Jane Doe and you know the rest.
No Devolucion

'no answers' best song of 2011. potential aoty. this introduced me properly to post-hardcore, every song was so catchy, the so quiet vocals and the loud crunchy drums, the odd violent scream here and there, thick electronics, radiohead-esque layered guitar flavoured with deftones. yum.

this tought me honsesty, forget all the pretense of Radiohead or Sigur Ros or Godspeed, this is the real shit. (i know the concept is quite ambitious, but musically not lyrically). fuckin hipsters with their animal collective, tartan dressing gowns, starbucks coffee in one hand and briefcase containing their Mac and their poetry in the other. ugh makes me sick
