I wore those cassettes out when I was young.
A laudable goal if there ever was one.
Only seen them twice, although once was at a rock club before they hit the big time over here and I didn't know what I was watching, the other was at Wembley Arena. I keep meaning to join the fanclub because the only time they do small club shows in the UK is for fanclub members only and I have no desire to go see them at an arena again.

Avril Lavigne-The Best Damn Thing (At least for her. )
Doods, srsly, it's FM!!!!
^ See to me that album was the start of their slide into being the Bon Jovi of metal. I far FAR prefer their earlier albums.
I once got a very quizzical look from a very stoned lass for suggesting that Master Of Puppets sounded like some great big beasties stomping about Godzilla style.
What?? I was in an illegal state of mind at the time. That's my defence and I'm sticking to it.
alice cooper - along came a spider-- i listen to that every trip home
Doro - angels never die
Doro - fear no evil
the prodigy - invaders must die
blondie - eat to the beat
depends what mood i'm in
Austrian Death Machine - Double Brutal
Boston - Boston
The Cars - The Cars
Richard Cheese and Lounge Against the Machine - Tuxicity
Disturbed - The Sickness
Eminem - The Marshall Mathers LP
Alanis Morrissette - Jagged Little Pill
No Doubt - Tragic Kingdom
Powerman 5000 - Tonight the Stars Revolt
Rob Zombie - Hellbilly Deluxe
At least it wasn't Y Kant Tori Read.
I was gonna come on here to bump this thread for some ones I remembered this weekend, one of which (Alanis Morrisette's Jagged Little Pill) has been mentioned since I posted last.
But I still don't see a couple of the best albums of all time, both of which I am embarrassed to have left off my list the first time -
Purple Rain - Prince & the Revolution
Synchronicity- The Police
Purple Rain in particular is such a spectacular album that it truly astounds me that no one remembered it so far (including myself), and it really deserves inclusion here more than most albums I can think of. Synchronicity might be better remembered by people who were in their teens and 20's in the 80's...but is still an awesome album, with the possible exception of maybe one song.
Oh...and just for the record, Prince gets the award for Best Superbowl Halftime Show Ever too
I'd have to say:
At the Drive-In's final album,
Relationship of Command
The Mars Volta's debut,
De-Loused in Comatorium
The combined genius of Cedric and Omar (frontmen of the above mentioned bands), as far as I'm concerned, emitted most good-feeling, twitch-inducing raw energy around the turn of the century. It's music I have not grown sick of listening over and over again, for the past 10 years.
In my list there are definitely these albums:
Pink Floyd - The Dark Side of the Moon
David Bowie - The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders From Mars
David Bowie - Young Americans
Prince - Parade
Duran Duran - Big Thing
Sergei Prokofiev - Symphony No. 1 in D major, Op 25 ("Classical Symphony")
L. Van Beethoven - Symphony No. 6 in F major ("Pastoral")
The Rocky Horror Picture Show - OST
Goldfrapp - Felt Mountain
Scissor Sisters - Scissor Sisters
The Long Blondes - Someone To Drive You Home
Black Eyed Peas - The E.N.D.
For Bowie, I think the best candidate is Hunky Dory.
In a different vein entirely, Bette Midler's The Divine Miss M.
And in a third direction, Lou Reed's Rock 'n' Roll Animal.
Marillion - Misplaced Childhood is one I can listen to over & over. Likewise for Queen's A Night At The Opera, Dare by The Human League, Gary Numan's The Pleasure Principle and Equinox by Jean Michel Jarre.
I agree. It's my favorite album
Another favorite.. pretty much perfect record. Even the cover is filled with detail.
Thanks! I was thinking about not bumping the thread since it was on page 3...but I see more people have posted, so now I'm glad I did. These two were such worthy candidates I felt like it would be a tragedy to leave them unmentioned.
I agree too!
Not sure if these were mentioned or not but i think these were perfect too:
Separate names with a comma.
