The 5's
Crash Love

Though often hated this is easily my favorite AFI album, and for good
reason; it's the first entire album I heard from the group. Though I worked
my way back through their discog nothing brings the memories and smiles
like this one does, I can pretty much sing along line for line. Yeah the cover
art might such a bit, and Davey has lost his makeup (R.I.P.), but this is still
2Amia Venera Landscape
The Long Procession

Remember when this took the website by storm? Happened to be when I
was going through some personal issues; this is the soundtrack to an
entire month of getting up at 5am to walk in the 20 degree weather to
donate plasma, only to return to a seemingly empty room filled with
introspection. Walking music, memories, great times.
3Assemblage 23

I dislike a lot of Assemblage just because it's played at the club here so
often, but this album is the exception. Tracks like "Sorry" feel like they were
written in regards to my past, while "Madman's Dream" is entirely too
relevant to working low wage jobs you hate. A summer of riding my bike to
a workplace I despised, this album is that soundtrack.

It only took one listen to make this a classic, and man is this great to throw
on when you need to study for college exams. One of my favorite folk/metal
albums, it makes me smile.
5Panic Lift
Witness To Our Collapse

Though I still can't put to paper a review of this album, Panic Lift helped
shape my tastes in industrial when I first started DJ'ing. Great for roadtrips,
this album remains unique in both its cover art deception and lyrical poignancy. I'd love for more albums to sound like this.

A god-damn dub/dubstep shockwave. Makes me want to watch Ghost In
The Shell, upgrade to Linux, learn to crack ICE ala Neauromancer... this is
just filled with emotional attachment. Though I normally don't like
downtempo this album keeps coming back, it's one of the quickest 5's I've
handed out. Plan on reviewing it, once I know how to describe it. Also this
guy is touring with Sphongle, next month might go see them.
Underworld: Rise of the Lycans

Before I listened to industrial, and man does that seem like a long time ago,
an old girlfriend of mine bought me this on a whim. I didn't enjoy much of it
then, but in the coming years I began to realize how awesome of a tracklist
they put together. Many memories tied up in this album, and many more to
come. Also has one of the BEST Combichrist remixes around, bar none.
8The Birthday Massacre
Walking With Strangers

First heard this on VF, just beginning my college career. Bought it, and
many years later still love it. Helped through my last breakup, you know the
one that is always long and drawn out because you're both young and
naive? Yeah, this was a good release during that.
9The Cure

Other than being a classic? This was my go-to jam in the homeless shelter,
would write in my journal and read to this. Though it paints a sad
landscape I was hopeful, because I knew I'd be going to college soon and
there I'd hopefully find people like me. Didn't happen, but was nice to get
out of the shelter all the same.
10The Presets

The first album was great, but the flow was lacking. This picks up those
shackles and shatters them, the band shines here. From playing this in the
club to driving to it this album doesn't get old, makes me smile, and has
some of the most upbeat moments in recent memory; I love this band.
11The Prodigy
The Fat of the Land

Another classic by most people's standards. Really started my branching
out from straight industrial, and a blast to drink to.

From the dancy to the more minimal this album/anthology is something I
can count on to have what I need. The B sides can drag on if you're not in
the mood for them, luckily I normally am.
