    Alright I'm new to the music section of this forum and was thinking I would get to know some the other posters on here by sharing my personal top 10 influential albums. These are by no means what I think are the greatest albums ever released (it's definitely not) this is just a list of albums that influenced my own personal taste in music. Alright I'll get the ball rolling

    Love these sort of questions. Really makes me reflect...

    Roughly in the order I encountered them:
    Rites of Spring self titled
    REM Life's Rich Pageant
    New Order Substance
    The Church Heyday
    The Stone Roses self titled
    Slowdive Souvlaki
    Stereolab Peng!
    Mogwai Young Team
    Boards of Canada Music Has The Right To Children
    Modest Mouse This is a long drive for someone with nothing to think about

    Pretty hard to narrow it down to just 10 since I'm still being influenced by new music. If I had to go most influential, it's going to be stuff from growing up, teens and early 20s. Each album grabbed me for different reasons.

    Beach Boys, The - Pet Sounds
    Beatles, The - The Beatles
    Pink Floyd - The Wall
    Joy Division - Unknown Pleasures
    Michael Jackson - Thriller
    Nirvana - Nevermind
    Nine Inch Nails - Pretty Hate Machine
    Silverchair - Frogstomp
    Rage Against the Machine - Rage Against the Machine
    Radiohead - OK Computer

    I have also seen Btbam in a room about the size of my bedroom once with Norma Jean. Only about 50 people max could fit in there. Insane show.

    In no particular order, except for the first one which feels like the most radical gamechanger of my life (music - wise, obviously...)


    1. My Dying Bride - Turn Loose the Swans
    2. Sisters of Mercy - Some Girls Wander By Mistake
    3. Amorphis - Tales from the Thousand Lakes
    4. Tori Amos - Boys for Pele
    5. Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath
    6. Nirvana - Nevermind
    7. Xeno and Oaklander - Sentinelle
    8. Bjork - Debut
    9. Ataraxia - Saphir
    10. Veruca Salt - American Thighs

    Edit: Yeah, I'm in my thirties, I realize there's no albums here from this decade. Newest one is probably Xeno and Oaklander - Sentinelle, from late 2009.

    Nice. The first time I saw them was with strapping young lad in a pretty small venue it was an awesome show. The second time I saw them was at ozfest which wasn't that great they only played about half an hour. Norma Jean was there also.

    I did see underoath play an awesome show in 2006 with my ex. I'm pretty sure them and Norma Jean share a few members.

    Same with Modest Mouse-Good News for me. It introduced me to indie rock and so much more music but it's not even in their top 3 albums
