1. Pink Floyd - Dark Side Of The Moon.
A must have for any one. This is just a fantastic album, and should be issued at birth to everyone.
My review of the album is here
2. Black Sabbath - Paranoid.
I have not done a review of Sabbath, because i feel i couldn't do them any justice. This was my introduction to Heavy Metal when i was younger, and i have been hooked ever since. Sure there might be a better Sabbath album in your eyes, and feel free to disagree with me if you must, but you have to admit that there isn't a bad tune on the album.
3. Ozzy - Diary Of A Madman.
As you can tell Ozzy is my favorite artist. I can understand if you are not a fan, But this album is indeed a must have.
Here is my review of the album
4. Deep Purple - Machine Head.
Here is my album review.
5. Truckfighters - Gravity X
The best band you have never heard of. This is what happened when Sabbath and Deep Purple got together and had some kid they locked in a studio until he produced this. Great stuff, and i hope to hear more. ( Picked up Phi another great album! )
6. Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin II
Yea Yea, let the flaming begin, sorry that this is my opinion. This in my opinion is Zeps greatest album by far. Yes there are other good ones that should be owned as well. But every song is enjoyable on this album ( IV or Zoso is another good one with enjoyment all around but heavy rotation has ruined it for me )
7. AC/DC Highway to Hell.
This is another album that i think needs to be heard, even if you don't dig the band. When AC/DC came out, there was just nothing like them on the air. This album is the true high point in there discography. They have LOTS of solid stuff, and are an homage to themselves in every way. They hardly ever strayed from the musical style, with the few exceptions of bad production.
9. Godspeed You! Black Emperor - Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven
To me this band defined Post Rock, not that I am a Genre Whore. This album while introduced to me not long ago, has really delved me deeper into this Genre, and shown me that they are the true pioneers of the movement of post rock.
10. Alice Cooper - Billion Dollar Babies.
Another album i could not do justice with a review. I love this album with a passion. It really needs to be heard and seen in concert. Live Alice, is forever better than Studio Alice in my opinion.
Well here is my list of 10 albums that should be in your collection right now.
Hey if you agree or disagree that is cool, music is subjective, and the listener now what He/She likes.
I am only trying to show you ten albums that you should listen too.
I also have another 300 or so more album just off the top of my head that are at least MUST listen to's.
If you would, please list your ten albums of interest here.
Also, these are not my Top Ten Albums of all time, If you want i can make a list of my Top Ten Albums of all time ( In MY Opinion Of Course!! ) Or top 20 or top 100 whatever.
There is of course ALLOT of albums that could be listed here.
So have at it>
