- Subjective I know, but what is your greatest album and why?
Ooh. Good one.
Trying to take away nostalgia… Let’s go with Vertigo of Bliss by Biffy Clyro, they’re the only band I’ve got inked on me so it probably better be them 😆
Close runners up would be Troublegum by Therapy? though, and August And Everything After by the Counting Crows. Though I think I’m not doing too well at the “taking away nostalgia” thing there.Posted 3 years agocfinnimoreMember
Nine Inch Nails- Fixed Ep.
Had it on at work the other day, still spectacular.
Edit: Because when I was 14 I would fall asleep with it on pretending I was Neo with Winamp visualizations on. I truly loved that life.
Does anyone else remember waking up hot as hell after leaving undercooled old fashioned beige units on all night ripping off Audiogalaxy…

My first cd to play in my first(only)CD player, Brothers in Arms by Dire Straits :D. Suggested at the time by the shop due to the “modern” production techniques at the time. Just fired up my old “hifi” last night for the first time in ages, think my old Mission 7s are a bit past it!Posted 3 years agoseosamh77Subscriber
Prodigy music for the jilted generation. Was primal scream xtrmntr for a while but I’ve gone back to the prodigy as my go to album when I don’t fancy anything else.
Why? Cause its bouncing! 😀 I like my music upbeat!
Although Cymande was suggested on my thread the other month by someone. That’s getting there.Posted 3 years agocolonel waxMember
Hmmm. In terms of nostalgia, Metallica And justice for all. Got it for Xmas 89 on LP and tape, immense. Needs remastering coz it sounds shit mind.
Converge, Jane Doe. Sounds like the workings of me brain, bit like Hulk smash all the time.
Quicksand, Slip. Mega influence.
Thinking about it though, probably Now 7 coz it were the first album I actually chose.Posted 3 years agoMalvern RiderMember
There could never be one, i could never choose, even harder than choosing one bike, which is probably impossible and usually impractical
Top three on playlist in the last decade or more:
Gas ‘NAH UND FERN’
Boredoms ‘VISION CREATION NEWSUN’
And someone mentioned the the’s ‘Soulmining’, amazing LP, that was in the prior decade’s top threePosted 3 years agospangelsaregreatMember
Van Halen Fair Warning.
A bit darker than their usual stuff but I just love the sound. Great riffs and solos by Eddie and Mike and Alex’s rhythm section is sublime. Some cool lyrics by Dave.
The art work on the album is very interesting too.
Favourite track is Mean Street but Hear About it Later is a close second.Posted 3 years agomicos145Member
Great thread but there must be more than one choice surely?
“Dark Side of The Moon’ Pink Floyd, my older brother played it so many times late at night when we went to sleep.
“Nevermind” Nirvana, it’s just so good never gets old.
“Dre 2001” Dr Dre, best Rap album ever the rest is just noise.Posted 3 years agoKing-ocelotMember
OK Computer, and other Radiohead songs if that era. I was completing my GCSE’s, had my first girlfriend, was learning about alcohol, my first festival, it was a long hot summer spent with lifelong mates riding bikes. But it’s not all about nostalgia it’s an incredible album.
