The Smashing Pumpkins Siamese Dream
Siamese Dream is easily one of the best albums of the 90's. Corgan creates a guitar-heavy atmosphere that can be credited to his long hours in the studio. Maybe he was a bit of a "stiffly stifferson" by playing all of the guitar parts himself, but his efforts resulted in a near flawless album. One thing that sets Smashing Pumpkins apart from their angry-sounding contemporaries like Nirvana and Alice in Chains, is the ability to make songs with starkly different moods and emotions. "Cherub Rock" begins the album with beautiful, crunching, heavy riffs that are present in all of the album's heavy songs. The rest of the album's tracks range from darker, harder songs like "Quiet" and "Silverf***" to light, pleasant songs like the triumphant "Disarm" and "Spaceboy", with its hopeful acoustic guitar. The highest point in this incredible album is "Hummer", which starts off with a simple but irresistible heavy riff, and near the end completely switches to 2 minutes of a gorgeous wandering guitar solo on top of an angelic, deeper solo. That's what Smashing Pumpkins is all about, guitar atmospheres. This album is a must for any 90's rock enthusiast, as well as rock fans from every genre and time period.

B.B. King The Ultimate Collection
It's hard to see where my favorite bands like Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath would be without the "King of Blues". This album shows the best of the best blue's guitarist ever, not to mention guest performances by Eric Clapton, Stevie Wonder, and U2.

B.B.'s passionate, roaring vocals and his intricate, bluesy guitar solo's keep me entertained through the whole album. B.B. King's influence on music is immeasurable, and I recommend this to any fan of music.

This Will Destroy You Young Mountain
In Young Mountain, This Will Destroy You creates a bleak soundscape full of jittery synth and solemn, echoey guitars. One can close their eyes and see themselves on a snowy peak, alone, and every sound made fading into nothingness. I feel insignificant and distant when I listen to Young Mountain, and very impressed. This is an excellent post-rock album, and will please any fan of the genre.
