    Wow. This is incredibly difficult. I'll list my top 10 but they won't necessarily be in order...

    1. Underoath- They're Only Chasing Safety 
    2. Brand New- The Devil and God are Raging Inside Me
    3. Fleetwood Mac- Rumours 
    4. Bane- The Note (random anecdote-my son is named after this band)
    5. Oso Oso- The Yunahon Mixtape
    6. Taking Back Sunday- Tell All Your Friends
    7. The Story So Far- Proper Dose
    8. Advent-Naked and Cold
    9. Blink 182- Enema of the State
    10. The Smiths- The Queen Is Dead

    I listen to mostly punk/hardcore/emo type stuff. I probably have a list of close to 25 albums I'd consider my all time favorites though. The reality is my list would almost certainly change depending on the day.

    It's one of the best. Huge shame the singer turned out to be a creep in a way that makes a lot of their music weird to listen to now

    It’s unfortunate. I try to disconnect when I listen to their music but it’s not always easy

    Basically you get “nominated” to join in on this challenge where you name 1 album a day just the cover of the album no details. And you choose the 10 most influential albums of your life. And you are supposed to nominate someone else each day. 

    @Michelle

    i agree I don’t normally do these “nominations” things like the ice bucket challenge or whatever. But I’m bored out of my mind at home so I did this one

    I don’t know... these lists are fun but I feel like it’s just a chance for everyone (general everyone) to show off how secretly cool they (think they) are. I only ever listen to music if I’m on the wine, so my honest list would be full of Partridge Family Greatest Hits and the 2007 Hairspray soundtrack and a bunch of jangly 90s guitar bands like Gin Blossoms. But if I were to post the list I wanted people to see it’s gonna be like early Weezer, early Faith No More, Andy Prieboy etc.

    I definitely didn't make my list thinking it would make me look cool or anything.  Those are the albums that shaped me and informed my life in one way or another ('best of' though were listed since it's the artist's overall music that was influential, not one particular album of theirs - i.e. Depeche, Tori Amos, etc).  They're the most meaningful to me in different ways because of that.

    That’s why I never do them. This was an exception. My albums are all pretty mainstream so don’t feel like I’m trying to prove how “deep” or “cool” I am. These are just the albums I grew up on.

    Guys, I wasn’t having a go at anyone, I was joking more about myself. But I do also know that most people have the albums of shame that never make a public list. ;-)

    Mine is kind of a wild mix! A mixture of being born in 1989 and being the exact right age for things like the Britney Spears and Eminem phenomenons to snatch me up, and then moving on to discover the kind of R&B, soul, and more rocky stuff that formed my taste. (Impossible to put in an order.)

    1. Fleetwood Mac - Rumours
    2. Stevie Wonder - Songs In The Key Of Life
    3. Alicia Keys - Songs In The Element Of Freedom
    4. Michael Jackson - Thriller
    5. Luther Vandross - Never Too Much
    6. Alanis Morissette - Jagged Little Pill
    7. Britney Spears - Oops!... I Did It Again
    8. Stevie Nicks - Bella Donna
    9. Eminem - The Marshall Mathers LP
    10. Cher - Heart Of Stone


    Honourable mentions:

    1. Savage Garden - Affirmation
    2. Papa Roach - Infest

  • Ten albums that I've obsessed over during my life, in roughly chronological order of when I discovered them. There are probably a lot I'm forgetting, but these are the first that came to mind. About the first half of the list is stuff I picked up from my older siblings as a teenager, the rest is stuff I discovered on my own. Forgive me for the fact that two of them are obnoxiously obscure.

    1. Queens of the Stone Age - Songs for the Deaf
    2. Nine Inch Nails - The Fragile
    3. Tool - Lateralus
    4. Primus - Sailing the Seas of Cheese
    5. The Mars Volta - Frances the Mute
    6. Jeff Buckley - Grace
    7. The Spent Poets - The Spent Poets
    8. David Bowie - Station to Station
    9. The Divine Comedy - A Short Album About Love
    10. Seeming - SOL: A Self-Banishment Ritual

    In an attempt to counteract this I'll also reveal my greatest musical shame - the first CD I ever owned was the Bob the Builder - Can We Fix It? single.

  • I hate arbitrary rules, so I didn't limit my list to 10..I went in chronological order that I heard the albums, but the ones in bold are top 10.  I omitted Greatest Hits / complications / soundtracks. There is also a lot of "classic" rock music that I now love, but was unaware of as a kid and never encountered in album format. 

    After I did the list, the thing that jumped out at me is that the ones I picked as most influential typically aren't considered the best work from the artist. It just happened to be the effect they had on me at the time. Examples are Run DMC, Public Enemy, Metallica, DMB, U2, and Jay-Z.

    1. Michael Jackson - Thriller
    2. RUN DMC - Raising Hell
    3. Beastie Boys - Licensed to Ill
    4. Bon Jovi - Slippery when wet (You can take the guy out of NJ)
    5. INXS - Kick
    6. RHCP - Blood Sugar Sex Magik
    7. Living Colour - Vivid
    8. Guns N Roses - Appetite for Destruction 
    9. Public Enemy - Fear of a Black Planet
    10. A Tribe Called Quest - The Low End Theory
    11. Metallica - ...And Justice For All
    12. Dr. Dre - The Chronic
    13. Smashing Pumpkins - Siamese Dream
    14. Pearl Jam - Ten
    15. Led Zeppelin II
    16. Dave Matthews Band -  Remember Two Things
    17. Jimi Hendrix - Electric Ladyland
    18. Biggie - Ready to Die
    19. U2 - Achtung Baby
    20. Black Crowes - The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion
    21. DMB - Before These Crowded Streets
    22. Beastie Boys - Ill Communication
    23. Prince - Purple Rain
    24. Jay-Z - The Black Album 
    25. Coldplay - A Rush of Blood to the Head

    1. REM - Fables of the Reconstruction
    2. Run DMC - Raising Hell
    3. Pearl Jam - Ten
    4. Uncle Tupelo - Anodyne
    5. The Clash - London Calling
    6. Wilco- Summerteeth
    7. Big Star - #1 Record
    8. The Beatles - White Album

    • The Clash - The Story of the Clash
    • Nirvana - Nevermind
    • James - Laid
    • Hendrix- The Ultimate Experience
    • Radiohead - The Bends or OK Computer
    • Bob Marley - Legend
    •  U2- Joshua Tree
    • Johnny Cash - The Essential
    • Rancid - And Out Come The Wolves
    • New Order - Best Of
    • Dylan - The Essential

    I think this might be close, one or two too many - it's funny how much more I used to listen to the same albums over and over when what I owned or borrowed was what was available.  Also you can tell I belonged to the BMG Music club from my list.   

    EDIT:  Whoops forgot best of the Velvet Underground.

    Two masterpieces for me. Both concept albums.

    Pink Floyd - The Wall
    Antlers - Hospice

    I can’t fathom how a mere mortal can possess the artistic talent to create something so perfect musically and lyrically.

    Other great works IMO

    WuTang Clan - 36 Chambers
    The Smiths - Louder Than Bombs
    Morrissey - Your Arsenal
    The Postal Service - The Postal Service
    Death Cab for Cutie Transatlanticism
    Trampled By Turtles - Stars and Satellites

    Vampire Weekend - Vampire Weekend

    Hon Mention
    2pac All Eyez On Me
