    I always prefer Closer over Unknown Pleasures for those choosing Joy Division. Arrangement was better on that album

    I saw Norma Jean and Underoath in 2006. Can’t remember the dates but it was in a church (only time been in church since except for funerals) also the first time I saw a fight in a church. Lead singer for Norma Jean is from Around the Ft.Smith area.

    Since it says influence taste and not necessarly favorites so I'm guessing each album would have to be different from one another to influence your taste

    English Beat - I Just can't Stop
    Yes - Fragile
    Roxy Music - Avalon
    Blondie - Parallel Lines
    Radiohead - Kid A
    Human League - Dare
    The Clash - London Calling
    Prince - Controversy
    The Doors - LA Woman
    Joy Division - Closer

    A lot of these are driven by instrumental preference.

    Sgt Pepper's. Cliche, but I listened to it every day as a child. Many of these are similarly records - records! - I listened to growing up.

    John Coltrane- Giant Steps

    Miles Davis- Bitches Brew

    Pink Floyd- The Wall. First record I ever bought with my own money.

    Dead Kennedys- my introduction to punk. I can still recall a friend telling me "You've gotta hear this guy's voice."

    King Crimson- Discipline. Fripp's guitar got my notice. I didn't know a guitar could be played that way.

    Frank Zappa- Shut Up and Play Your Guitar, all three albums. Joe's Garage was my introduction, became a favorite and still is. Everything else he recorded, TBH.

    Megadeth- Rust in Peace. I basically fart out my speed metal playing like his.

    Jimi Hendrix- everything. All of his career. It can't be overstated what his playing did for the electric guitar. But for thread's sake, Electric Ladyland.

    That's as many as I can think of just now

    I have to say, Sgt Pepper's got me into a lot of different music, very influential. As well as Revolver.

    I picked up guitar early and most of my influences are related to that.

    Though Midori and L. Shankar gave my sound a focus: recreating that vibrato. I've had people cross a crowded show to come find out if someone was playing a violin.

    I'm not really feelin the newer stuff to be honest.

    Silent Circus, Alaksa, and Colors are three great albums.
