    Awesome album, I've not listened to any of Mastondon's older stuff, but this is pure genius.

    It definitely is Megadeths best piece of art. There are so many great songs in it, such as "Hangar 18", "Tornado of Souls" and "Holy Wars", and it really is one of the best thrash albums ever.

    Oh, by the way... - Pink Floyd.

    Contains every recording done by Floyd to date. All of them. And Pink Floyd are kickass.

    what is the point of that?

    you suggested a box set of ALL the pink floyd albums, choose one or 2 of them... Atom Heart Mother is one of the biggest disappointments I've heard...

    MGMT - Congratulations

    <--- Album cover

    This album is amazing, they took a further step away from the likes of 'Kids' and 'Time to Pretend' in favor of the psychedelic rock that filled up half of 'Oracular Spectacular'. Each song is without a doubt a grower.

    If you only listen to one song, let it be 'Siberian Breaks'.

    Atom Heart Mother is fantastic. The only PF album I'd consider bad is The Final Cut, and that was really a Waters solo album, it even says "An album by Roger Waters, preformed by Pink Floyd" on the back.

    The Avalanches. All of their songs are remixes from various and rather unknown videos and such. The album has a delightful melancholy tone that carries over from each song to the next.

    Though, if you tend to listen to the lyrics more than the rest of the song, you'd find each album to be very repetitive. (Not counting Frontier Psychiatrist; It's a must listen)

    Simple enough premise...

    I'll start with

    Zombies - oddessey and the oracle

    its a forgotten gem of the 60s, sadly the bad split after the release of their only great album

    have a listen and give your feedback
    Fantastic album; one of my favorites.

    I also recommend this.

    Karnivool are an amazing progressive hard rock/metal band from my city, to which I would recommend to anyone with any taste in music. They contain elements of bands such as Tool, Nirvana, even Meshuggah. The whole album is truly an experience, and their other album Themata is just as good.

    Not many albums have truly innovative lyrics in its genre or during it's time.


    Forget everything that their following two albums were like. (E.g. 'The Kill' & 'Kings and Queens')

    One of those albums that take you on a journey from the start to the very end

    Pica Fierce was an underground death metal band that disbanded recently. They had been together for ten years and released three demos before putting out their only full-length album. The music is dynamic, melodic, compositionally interesting, and technically impressive. Not to mention good production (although not the greatest). Resembles old-school death metal moreso than recent developments. A lot of influence from Cynic, Death, etc. Pica Fierce also composed and toured a metal opera, titled 'Faust'.

    I loved that album, but I don't think it's quite as awesome as you said.

    I just love it because it's awesome

    The masterpiece from the Norwegian Black/Sogne Metal group Windir. All the albums after this one is a masterpiece. The way Valfar (the main man behind the band) uses synth along with guitars and his special voice makes it all perfect.

    Big Star's #1 Record. Despite the name the album barely sold because the label didn't have enough money to distribute it to stores. It's a shame really. Every song on the album is catchy as hell. Cheap Trick covered In the Street, and that became the theme song to That 70's show. In between the rockers are acoustic ballads that are touching and beautiful. It may seem a bit standard today, but back then, it was awesome, and very influential. Also, you can't deny that Chris Bell and Alex Chilton (both are now dead, Alex just recently), are both brilliant song writers, and that the songs are catchy as hell. You can get This album along with it's follow up Radio City on one CD now.

    This is Los Campesinos! second album. From start to finish it is full of great lyrics, awesome riffs and an all around brilliant sound. I would hazard to say that this album is one of the best indie albums of all time. Anybody who like indie, rock or is just looking for something really relaxing and fun to listen to should check out We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed.

    One of if not my favourite albums of all time. Ingenious lyrics, meaningful songs, powerful delivery, this album is so close to perfect it's not even funny. I dream of writing something as amazing as this one day



    Neutral Milk Hotel - In an Aeroplane Over the Sea

    One of my recent discoveries after seeing it lauded everywhere it could be, and now I understand why. Take the songwriting of Bob Dylan, and add to it the fuzz rock sound of 60s garage rock bands, and you'd maybe get something like this. Not my genre by any means, but a truly great album

    Adagio - Underworld


    This album is generally regarded as the French progressive metal act's masterpiece. The arrangements are powerful and intricate, the harmonies are interesting, the musicianship is top-notch, and the singer, David Readman, has some serious balls.


    Also, everyone in the band is a shredder. If you've never heard bass sweeping, now you have the opportunity:

    Best album from Porcupine Tree imo, there's a hidden meaning in the whole album, features songs that stand out alone but still is a good concept album, I usually like to listen to this album fully.

    Honestly prefer This is War to the other two (though both have awesome songs). Every song is just too awesome to ever pass on an iPod or whatever, and the crowd parts are so epic, especially live. A Beautiful Lie has nice personal songs, and the first album has very eery and cool out-of-this-world lyrics, but This is War seems to really combine them.

    And yeah, Jared is an ass on stage sometimes, but he still performs one hell of a show.

    Anacrusis - Screams And Whispers


    I keep recommending metal. Next album will be something from a different genre. Anyhow...

    Anacrusis experimented with the blend of thrash metal and progressive rock, and is often credited as being one of the first bands to do so. Another reason you should listen to this album: it kicks ass, and their entire discography is available for free download on their website. http://www.anacrusis.us/

    Ayreon's musical style derives mostly from heavy metal and progressive rock, but combines them with genres like folk, classical and electronica to form what some call a completely new style of music.

    The Human Equation is the sixth album by Arjen Anthony Lucassen, released under the name Ayreon. It was released on May 25, 2004. As with other Ayreon albums, it features guest appearances from several musicians previously unrelated to the project, including James LaBrie of Dream Theater, Mikael Åkerfeldt of Opeth, Eric Clayton of Saviour Machine, and Devin Townsend, performing music arranged and written by Lucassen.

    This album is absolutely amazing, the conceptual idea behind the album is out of this world.

    I used to prefer In Absentia to Deadwing, but the more I listen to both of them the more Deadwing stands out. Even though In Absentia is definitely in my top ten favourite albums along with Deadwing.

    To contribute again,



    Diablo Swing Orchestra - Sing Along Songs for the Damned & Delirious

    One of the most insane albums you will ever hear. Imagine System of a Down, a jazz orchestra and Devin Townsend having a tea party in Tim Burton's house and you'd be remotely close. Absolute genius

    I admit 'A Beautiful Lie' & and 'This Is War' were impressive albums, but there's something I can't put my finger on about how the self titled album tops them... Hard to say, maybe a song will help explain.

    great metal is black sabbath or acdc

    great rock is beatles or rolling stones

    expected a lot more of that kind of talk, that television band was close to what i was expecting

    surprised of the variety of rock here though

    Daft Punk - Discovery



    I really cannot big this album up enough. If you're looking to get into dance music, this is a great place to start. It's basically house music, but with a kind of cheesy 80s euro-disco edge to it. It's one of the few albums I can say with confidence is absolutely flawless from start to finish. Plus, guest spots from Romanthony and Todd Edwards = WIN.

    I do understand the variety that metal has, just yet to discover that

    acdc are definitely metal, although most of their popular work is predominantly hard rock style

    i was just surprised about the variety of metal rather than variety of genres which was what i was expecting
