Albums that changed my life
This may be all over the place.
- •Metallica - Master of PuppetsAfter playing One, from the "...and justice for all" album on guitar hero 3, I went online and tried to find more metallica and this album was just so emotional, and purposeful, listening back on the album It's still one of my favorites.
- •Linkin Park - MeteoraOne of the first albums I was ever exposed to and really enjoyed. With the mix of electronic and metal it came as a precursor for me to start listening to Nine Inch Nails, and nu-metal.
- •Nine Inch Nails - the Downward SpiralIf I was trapped on a desert island and I had one album to choose to listen to for the rest of my life I would always choose this album, there are so many different layers each time I listen to it I can always find something new that sticks out. The lyrics are also so raw and desperate for someone to listen it's great.
- •Pink Floyd - The WallIt's a great album, everyone has their own reasons for enjoying this album. It's really great.
- •Korn - KornThe pattern with the majority of music I listen to is one thing leads to another. The mix of funk drum grooves, gnarly vocals, the percussiveness of the bass, and the piercing guitar, made this sure that the listener could hear every single instrument and vocal on its own level within each track while it was still very chaotic and raw.
- •Slipknot - Vol. 3 (The Subliminal Verses)Just the album cover was enough for anyone to realize that this album was meant to be a treat. Stepping away from Iowa and their self titled album slipknot really hit hard with Vol. 3 just the way the album is mixed is enough for anyone to call it a masterpiece, how do you have 7+ members and still make sure that every part is heard, and be able to write songs that actually have a semblance of order and enjoy ability however they managed to do that they did and it lead to a real work of art.
- •Nine Inch Nails - StillThis album introduced allot of instrumental tracks and allot of raw vocals and instruments. My first listen through of this album was just amazing everything was so purposeful and emotional, it's one of the reasons nine inch nails cd's hang on my wall because it really helped me realize music isn't always to please a listener it's to please yourself and to espress feelings and emotions that would otherwise be impossible to bring up in everyday life. This album felt like therapy to me.
- •Manchester Orchestra - Mean Everything To NothingMy introduction into alternative rock I was starting to realize that my life really wasn't that bad and music doesn't have to be depressing or angry to be enjoyable not that this album isn't, but it is very consuming, and emotional without being depressing or angry. It really is white people party music.
- •Awolnation - Megalithic SymphonyThe first album of Awolnation, another album just to feel good about and enjoy, there was nothing to really be angry about but it still brought up things I could relate to with wanting to be different to change things. The Instrumentality was also very good mixing bass heavy synths and still keeping guitar, drums, bass, and really piercing vocals.
- •Blink-182 - Blink-182This was more of an album that I was raised on my mom would play it in the car whenever we had to drive for a while as a kid, and I didn't really know how to react I just remember enjoying it, and I'm excited for blink's new album even if Tom is out of the picture.
- •Nirvana - NevermindIt's almost a cliche for how many people that like this album but it really does deserve all the attention it gets its a great album not saying it's the best but it really did have a heavy influence on music that's around now even if it's not always easy to see
- •Rise Against - The Sufferer & The WitnessMy first introduction to Rise Against and with that my biggest introduction to (a less popular) punk. One of my favorite bands to play full blast in my headphones and play drums to. It really is a workout though. But none the less an enjoyable one. I need to wrap this up I'm gonna end up putting my whole itunes library on here.
- •Smashing Pumpkins - Mellon Collie And The infinite SadnesshiI can't really explain why I enjoy smashing pumpkins, cause they're just so different, I don't listen to the music to really dig into the instruments it's a band I really just enjoy to enjoy. Which may seem like it isn't that Life changing but it did allow me to take a new perspective on music that I could enjoy an album without having to dig deep, sometimes it's good just to hear the product as a whole without questioning how it got there.
