i heard this on the radio a while back, a dj had a bunch of famous peeps in the studio, and they had to give the 20 albums that changed their lives, so basically, their very favorites of all time.

my top 20:

5.Deftones-White Pony
6.Sepultura-Chaos AD
8.In Flames-The Jester Race

19.Korn-Take A Look In The Mirror
20.In Flames-Reroute To Remain

good list, no?

Oooh Morbid Angel, I bought that when it came out. cool

I couldn't possibly narrow it down to 20, and if I did it would change depending on my mood.

total metalhead
yeah like i said it took me a full week of head scratching to get 20, but saying that, ive got to agree with you and say its mostly based on mood, so i'll probably have changed my mind in a couple of days erm

Yup, next week you'll have some Justin Timberlake and Britney in there. stick out tongue

total metalhead
laughing out loud i was thinkin more along the lines of Gary Glitter and The Wombles actually...

I won't hear a bad word said about the wombles.

total metalhead
no not at all! they were a quality act who in no way relied on novelty value to boost sales.

Except Uncle Bulgaria, what an attention whore. roll eyes (sarcastic)

total metalhead

it was always Bungo who had the real talent.

how does linkin park change your life ?
they have like nooo meaning or emotion to there sogns .. not saying emo .. im saying .. like a messege

Well im not saying their albums have changed my, but then again no album really has the albums i have submitted on here are albums that i'd pinpoint at specfic time of my life.

Back on subject i see you've put KoRn & Tool on your list i don't really see anything exceptional about their music either, not when compared to the likes of Black Sabbath, Old Metallica , Iron Maiden or indeed the Beatles now these are bands with emotions.

total metalhead
nothing exceptional about Tool and Korn??? thats just plain wrong no

dude .. tool ... korn ... omg do you even listen to there music ?

i havent bought twenty albums but here is my list ...

1)alan jackson greatest hits volume 2
2)toby keith unleashed
3)alan jackson - drive
4)jimmy buffet - margaritaville
5)hank williams greatest hits

i can relate to their lyrics...and for me their is something epic about the music itself...and i think they have a lot of meaning and emotion to their songs...and that's why its on my list.

total metalhead
i really dont like Linkin Park, but i can understand what 113 says. a lot of bands get bashed if they have poor lyrics, but for some bands, its the music that really counts. i know cos a lot of ppl say one of my fave bands, Adema, have repetive lyrics (which is only true in some cases).

in flames
wicker man

korn not emotional ? are you kidding me..listen to self tittled and you will understand the real meaning of emotions!

you dont see anything exceptional about tools music ? but linkin park are musically exceptional?!?! lol

i respect you wicker man u really have a wide taste of music..but dont compare the weak qulity of lp's music to the complex tool..even if dose not apeal to you..tool are a much more talented band then lp..atleast they do play thier instruments and they play them very well!

and tools songs actually have meaning ....

in flames
the meaning in thier songs is kind of hard to understand sometimes

every song has meaning-it just depends on the listener...people find meaning in different things...

total metalhead
yes yes yes
amen to that

yes tools meanings are very confusing .. but if you understand them .. its so f*cking great

I didn't say LP are better then anyone, i just prefer them over Tool & KoRn thats all.

I cant think of 20 records that changed my life, but Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana would probably be the record that changed my life the most. I first heard it when I was about 13 and was still into pop music, but I loved that song and bought the Nevermind album, and started listening to rock music. Nirvana remain my favourite band to today.

it wasnt teen spirit it was polly but the same thing happened, my dad made me listen and i loved it

im not sure any have really changed my life but here are some that changed my music tastes and/or i really like etc etc;

Jeff Buckley - Grace.
The Flaming Lips - The Soft Bulletin, Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots.
Radiohead - The Bends, Ok Computer, Kid A.
Pink Floyd - The Dark Side Of The Moon.
Nirvana - Nevermind.
