I started listening to music two or three years ago because I was raised homeschooled, super-religious, and sheltered. I never really listened to anything besides whatever christian music was on the radio.

I know almost nobody anyone is talking about here. I mostly listen to what ever is recommended to me by Spotify and that tends to be really recent stuff.

u/nnavotineb 13d ago

My mom was similar in the music department. She wanted me to only listen to Christian music... So out of spite I started finding Christian metal bands and showing her the lyrics if she questioned. I still feel lost when it comes to music.

Pretty hate machine-NIN

Such a great album.

I saw NIN in Idaho this one time around when Year Zero came out, and Trent told the crowd early on that half the crew got stranded in a snow storm on the way to Idaho from Oregon and that there would be no light and laser show that night... to make up for it they ended up playing a modified set list.

They up playing mostly old songs from pretty hate machine and downward spiral, it was an awesome experience.

Absofuckinglutely! i found this on tape at a flea market as a teenager. i grew up in a crazy, ultra conservative and religious house so this was total contraband. i had no idea what they, or it, sounded like but i knew all the "edgey" kids at school wore their shirts and listened to them. And i so badly wanted to be anything other than the weird (mostly) christian music only person i'd been for so long (not by choice).

i popped it in the tape deck when no one was home and it was, no joke or even exaggeration, Earth shattering! i may not have the same level of love for every NIN album that comes out (although there are so many genuinely great ones) but Pretty Hate Machine will always be a "listen all the way through" one for me.

This should be higher up. When people know the story of how this album got produced, from dragging Jimmy Chamberlain in, fucked out his skull to lay down some of the greatest drum tracks ever known to Billy Corgan tracking the guitars like a million times or whatever it is. It is a truly incredible album. I can never pick a favourite tune. Mayonnaise?! Hummer!?! Geek USA?!??!?!! I remember listening to Cherub Rock when I was like ten, my older bro bought the album and it just blew my mind and started my love for the Pumpkins. IMO One of, if not the best album to come out of the 90’s they went in there, laid it the fuck down. Corgan fucked with it and it’s perfect. No bad track. No bad melody, no bad solo. FUCK I looove Siamese Dream.

Johnny Cash - American Recordings

Ken Burn's Country Music touches on this album and the history behind it.

It is absurd how ahead of its time this record was, especially considering it was released in the middle of Country Music at its most glamorous. At the time the genre was all about massive production value and was by far the biggest genre in music by a mile. Then Cash (who was at the lowest in his career playing half full rooms in Branson) teamed up with Rubin and they release something so pure and against the grain. It truly is a perfect album.

Featuring the track "Black Sabbath"

u/matt_firn 13d ago

I once had to submit a Wikipedia edit to "Black Sabbath" from Black Sabbath by Black Sabbath. Absolutely maddening to try and find YouTube clips for early demos and alternate live recordings when you have to search "Black Sabbath Black Sabbath by Black Sabbath live in Berlin 1970" and etc.

https://youtu.be/OHcSssbUBkU This track is phenomenal, and the third verse is absolutely awesome.

P.S. Easier to find, and arguably even cooler: alternate versions of War Pigs. Live in 1970 has some of the major alternate lyrics. There is a demo version released on an Ozzy compilation (available elsewhere on a Sabbath album but can't recall atm) with the full alternate lyrics.

I can't manage to find a single flawed track on any of the first five LPs by Black Sabbath.

This is a rare album where you can hear it for the first time way later, WITH all of the hype, and STILL be blown away by how good it is.

The Blue Album was a game changer for a teen in the 90’s. In the midst of the grunge movement and heavy metal bands, you had these ordinary looking, almost nerdy looking guys, who showed ordinary kids that you could do your own thing and be cool.

Rush- Signals

u/MIBlackburn 14d ago

I'd say Moving Pictures over Signals, it's not my favourite album (thanks constant overplaying of Tom Sawyer), saw them do it all live in London. Clockwork Angels falls into this as well and the Garden is a great end for Rush.
