What were the most important albums in your life?
 
Il post mine later.

Sir-Ex 05-17-2014 10:12 PM

Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd.

Lateralus by Tool.

A Farewell to Kings by Rush.



The holy trinity of my musical awakening, which, as was unavoidable, also conducive to my spiritual awakening from childhood.

The Rev 05-17-2014 10:41 PM

I think "Rush: Signals" had the greatest impact on my life as a kid. I really related to the whole message of that album.

I had Led Zeppelin's BBC Sessions, Double Disc, in a back and forth rotation in my CD truck CD player in my 18th year, for about 6 months straight....

I'd say that qualifies. :D

One for starters.


Kami! Really liked your list....

You said 'from my childhood' and gave them a look over...
Got near the bottom and was like 'He is younger than I thought!'

Then saw the 'later in life' comment :o

Also good choices. That Badu album is one of my favourites!
