Post List of Albums
So over the last little while I've been compiling a list of albums I'd like to either purchase or acquire as part of my collection. Unfortunately, I always have a tendency for forget bands or albums to add to the list when ever I mean to.

I would like to enlist your aid in compiling the list. If you get the chance and are willing to look over the list (it's a reasonably long list and I don't at all mean to inconvenience people), would you be able to give me any suggestions for albums that you think belong on the list.

This list does not include entire discographies, only select albums. I will add discographies in special cases. As to be expected, the list does not include albums I've already acquired. All help is greatly appreciated.

How long did it take for you to type that list out? :shock:

Do you have Type O Negative's October Rust? I think it's better than Bloody Kisses.

If you like Death, you should get at least Symbolic.

We don't know what you like, and what you already have, so it's kindda hard to give hints.

Didn't take me too long seeing as the list has been a continuing project and I already had it saved.

I don't actually have October Rust, I thought I had added it, I guess I'll be adding it now. I do enjoy Death, never really been sure what to add. Any other suggestions to go along with Symbolic to add?

I don't really expect everyone to know what I like, I just hope that after reading through the list people may be able to come up with things for me to add that I have for gotten or for me to check out if I enjoy it so I can add it. Thank you for the suggestions.

The only other Death album I've heard on its entirerly was Sound of Perseverance, which is totally amazing. It's more technical than the other Death stuff I've heard, and the drummer is awesome (forgot his name).

Also, there's 2 plus:

Best Painkiller cover you can hear out there

You can buy a platinum edition that contains a special DVD with live footage.

If you're interested in Led Zeppelin, you should go and get Physical Graffiti and Led Zeppelin IV right away... they're currently my favorites, but all their albums are great. Led Zeppelin I and III are also on the top of my list.

Awesome, I'll definitely be checking that out, see if can't get the platinum edition.

I've actually got all the Led Zeppelin albums, definitely one of my favourite bands. Thank you once again for the suggestions.

As for Death, Sound of Perseverance is indeed great, and it's Richard Christy on drums. It took me a while to get into it, but Individual Thought Patterns is also one of their best albums. Andy LaRocque's leads on it are amazing, really melodic in parts and just well done.

This is a little out there, but Ethan Brosh's "Out of Oblivion" was a very enjoyable album. Qualifies as shred for sure. Many famous guest appearances on the album, too. Of note I can remember Greg Howe and Joe Stump.

If you have the extra 15 bones, go frit.

If you like Meshuggah there's a good chance you'll like Periphery


So I'll recommend

Periphery - Periphery

I'd add these albums to your list:
- Iggy Pop and the Stooges - Raw Power
- Iron Maiden - Powerslave
- Judas Priest - Angel of Retribution
- Mastodon - Crack the Skye
- Megadeth - Rust in Peace
- Meshuggah - I (EP) (I think it's very hard to find, though)
- Pink Floyd - A Saucerful of Secrets or Atom Heart Mother
- Yes - Close to the Edge

And based on what you listed, I recommend these:
- Baroness - Red Album
- Charlie Parker - Now's the Time Boxset
- Devin Townsend - Ziltoid the Omniscient
- Sculptured - Embodiment
- Strapping Young Lad - City
- The Flower Kings - Paradox Hotel
- Turbonegro - Party Animals

Post Re: List of Albums
Alright, Death is definitely getting a couple albums up there, Sound of Perseverance and Symbolic. I'm not too familiar with what's on Individual Thought Patterns, I will check it out and It's likely to get up there.

What I've heard from Out of Oblivion is great and is quite likely to make it's way onto the list.

I'm enjoying Periphery, the first time I heard them the singer's clean vocals kind of threw me off a bit, not so much now. They're probably going up there.

I've already gotten Rust in Peace, and could've sworn I already had Raw power up there, thanks for the reminder. The rest of you're suggestions are going up, I think I may have originally not added feeling I may be adding too many from each band, seems a little ridiculous at the moment.

With the suggested artists, I've always enjoyed Strapping Young Lad, Devin's solo work and Charlie Parker, never really been sure where to start though. Those are probably going up. I've never actually heard of Sculptured or Turbonegro and although aware of their existence haven't actually listened to anything by Baroness or The Flower Kings. Checking it all out now.

Thank you everyone for the suggestions.

Ok, let's see then:

Turbonegro is a bit similar (as similar as they can be, though) to Andrew W.K., Misfits and maybe Ramones. I recommended Sculptured since you listed Behold...The Arctopus. Not nearly as technical and out-there as them but I think you might like it. As for Baroness and The Flower Kings, the former is like Mastodon-meets-classic rock (with shouting), while the latter takes lots of inspirations from Yes, which you listed.

Awesome, they all sound like they're going to be good. With Turbonegro based of the name of the album, I had a feeling it was going to have something to do with Andrew W.K..

Whatever you do make Frank Zappa - Overnite Sensation be your next purchase, or maybe One Size Fits All. Better get both, then get Apostrophe Sheik Yerbouti and Joe's Garage.

I just noticed you had some Pat Metheny on there- I don't know if you have these records already, but Secret Story and The Way Up are great Pat Metheny Group albums. I saw him a little while ago on his "Orchestrion" tour, and he is just amazing, one of my favorite composers in addition to being a great player.

Thank you for the heads up EricF, I may have to have those a priority as far as Frank Zappa Albums go.

I don't actually have those records yet Grant. Not too familiar with what's on those two albums, I'm going to have to check them out. I missed Pat when he was in town for that tour, I was so close to going to see it, I knew a few others who were going and would've been more then happy to have gotten me there. I would've quite liked to have gone.

Thank you Keith, I can't believed I missed so many of the artist that you listed that I already liked. I've been meaning to add Plastic Beach and D-Sides to the list for quite a while and have never gotten to it. I've completely forgotten about adding Deltron 3030, Mogwai, Crosby Stills and Nash, Crosby Stills Nash and Young, Danger Doom and John Lennon. I've also been neglecting checking out Fleet Foxes, Elliot Smith, TV on the Radio, Ratatat and The Black Keys, and this'll give me a reason to. I've also never heard any of Thom's solo work or heard of at all the other bands, apart from Kaki King. I wasn't too fond of the first thing I heard from Kaki King, but I'm likely to give it another go.

Jeff Beck's made it on the list, only one album, so I might as well add Truth. I actually kind of dig Tiny Tim.
