My Favorite albums
Who cares? :) I did this on a whim last night. I have a pretty
large and very eclectic music collection. I have Linkin Park and
Aphrodite's Child and Bob Dylan and Weather Report and Staind..
it's all over the place. There isn't alot of new music and you can
read why here if you're interested. Last night I was wondering if
I could pick not necessarily the BEST music - which is a completely
subjective thing - but which recordings most personally influenced
me - opened me up to new musical ideas. And of course, yes I do
think these are all excellent recordings; the message (lyrics) in
some cases are not in my opinion healthy or recommended.
In approximate guestimate not alot of analysis done here but these
are looking back and placed in order of the time these people changed
my musical life. There are large gaps in time - there are large
gaps in time in which I felt most music on the radio just sucked
great rotten eggs. These are not necessarily in order of release
either; but about when I heard them. "It's all about me."
