    Ok, my own most important albums..


    1.Beastie Boys ‘License to Ill’ -my 1st album ever. It wasn’t my parents music, it was mine. Made me fall in love with hip-hop

    2. Machine Head ‘Burn My Eyes’ -I’d heard metal before, but struggled to latch on to it the way others that were into it did. BME changed that. Along with Panteras ‘Vulgar’ (which I owned after as opposed to 1st) it brought me into the food and helped me identify the type of metal I wanted to hear.

    3. Helmet ‘Meantime’ -no album influenced me more or made me want to learn how to play guitar more than this album.

    4. Pink Floyd ‘Dark Side of The Moon’ -I was always a classic rock guy growing up with it being played by my parents. But I didn’t appreciate it until I started getting high in my teens. The Doors and Pink Floyd were seen in a whole different way for me after this period.

    ...And Justice For All and Led Zeppelin IV were probably the two most important albums that defined my love of music

    It got me into more "extreme" types of metal but i could never say i was an avid death or black metal listener all around. Also my kicked of my interest towards folk metal which got me into the geekdom scene ie renaissance faires, cosplay.. I suppose it is a milestone for me

    Songs for the Deaf single handedly made me into the musician I am today. Since then got to record with a pivotal member of that album

    In the late 80's I moved away from hair metal and started listening to hardcore and punk. Some early bands i listened to were Minor Threat, Black Flag, Dead Kennedy's, Suicidal Tendencies, etc. When a buddy made a tape of this for me, i had heard of them, but never heard their music, so i was expecting it to be fast and screaming. Instead i got a bit of horror rockabilly with a touch of punk. I was surprised, but I liked it though and it has remained my favorite album ever since.

    Metallica's debut Kill 'Em All from 1983. It was the album that made me come to the revelation that Metallica will always be my favorite band above all else. Also they turned me onto the greatest genre known to man in that of Heavy Metal


    Electronic music wise both the Prodigy and Richard D. James better known as Aphex Twin are what made me realize that electronic had legitimately talented individuals and bands.

    The Narcotic's Suite is just simply otherworldly. Those last three songs that make up the suite flow so well together. I won't lie I spent many a time tripping on LSD among other psychedelics to this album when I was younger.


    This album gave us in my opinion the greatest ambient song ever recorded in that of second song off of Selected Ambient Works Volume II released in 1994 officially called #2 but better known as Rhubarb. That song is indescribable.

    Sorry, can't confine it to one album.

    Jethro Tull Greatest Hits

    I immediately took to this album and listened to this a bagillion times when I was a youngin'. I loved Jethro Tull and still do. Jethro Tull was and is fun and interesting listening.

    The Prodigy, Music for the Jilted Generation
    Got me into electronic music. I wasn't super into it my first listen but it ended up not only broadening and molding my musical tastes but it remains one of my favorite albums of all time.

    Static-X, Wisconsin Death Trip
    This got me into metal/industrial in a big way. Huge influence on my tastes and despite that I don't listen to metal a whole lot these days, I still enjoy the album.

    Pitchshifter, Pitchshifter.com
    Another huge influence on my tastes. I first heard them on Test Drive 5. This along with Static-X and Fear Factor made industrial my favorite genre for awhile. I still love the album and it's message.

    Coal Chamber (self titled)
    This pushed me fully into metal. It was fun, cathartic, and pumped me up.

    I'll probably update the post when I'll remember some more.

    Haha, cool. First one to mention My Dying Bride, I believe (besides me, obviously). Great album, and my #2 favorite of theirs.

    I hope live albums count, cause mine is La Gazza Ladra/ The Thieving Magpie by Marillion. The classical intro morphing into Slainte Mhath ("And you listen, with a tear in your eye, To their hopes and their betrayals, And your only reply is: Slainte Mhath"), the magic of Fugazi, the anger of He Knows You Know.

    And that's just the first disc, the true magic, and importance, for me was to be found there: Misplaced Childhood. Most people know their hit song Kayleigh, but that was just the intro to Misplaced.

    So I talked about conscience and I talked about pain
    And he looked out the window and it started to rain
    I thought maybe I've already gone crazy
    So I reached for a bottle and he reached for the door
    And I picked up the sleeping pills crushed on the floor
    Inviting me to a casual obscenity

    First heard this album over 25 years ago, must have listened to it several hunderd times, and it still grabs me by the throat every single time. My first introduction to progressive rock, and it still stands tall to this day.

    Easy answer for me...

    Rancid ....And Out Come The Wolves

    In the early 90s us kids were only exposed to whatever was being pushed on us by the radio. Luckily the in the 90s a couple punk bands broke into the mainstream (Green Day, Offspring, Rancid, etc..). I picked up this Rancid album and was blown away. Many rank it as won of the best punk albums of all time, and I agree.

    It shifted my musical taste as a wee lad from mainstream pop/rock to the punk and underground scene.

    It was probably my favorite album when it came out when I was mainly into the nu metal and alternative metal scene. It only got better as my tastes expanded to older pop rock and alternative rock, electronic, ambient, etc. it really is a triumph and underrated as it approaches its 20 year anniversary.

    Pink Floyd-Darkside of the Moon
    Tool-Lateralus

    Were also considered
