What are the top 5 albums that made the biggest impression on your life?
We all have at least one album we could not stop listening to and spoke to us in such a way that you felt your life was changed forever. Mine are:
Rumors - Fleetwood Mac; August and Everything After - Counting Crows; Recurring Dream - Crowded House; Little Earthquakes - Tori Amos; Under Rug Swept - Alanis Morissette. What are yours?
Hell Freezes Over - The Eagles
Abbey Road - The Beatles
Bridge Over Troubled Waters - Simon and Garfunkel
Ageless Medley - Amy Grant
Piano Man - Billy Joel (Includes my husband/soldier and my song: You're My Home.
Have I given away my age? I'll bet at least three of these would be on my 20-something kid's list too!
AC/DC - Let there Be Rock (first rock album I ever owned)
Metallica - Kill'Em All (a game changer. Suddenly Motley Crue and Quiet Riot didn't cut it anymore)
Warrior Soul - Salutations from the Ghetto Nation (should've been bigger than Guns N Roses. Anthems for a 90s youth rebellion that never happened.)
Ramones Mania - hits compilation that introduced me to the music of this band and quickly turned me into an obsessed fan.
KISS - 1st album - this was KISS at their best, before the limos and private jets, when they were still young, unknown and hungry.
I grew up listening to the Ramones so they also have a special place in my life. I think Rock n Roll High School was the first album I ever owned. I agree, KISS was at their best before they sold out.
I'm a major KISS fanboy so I love stuff from all of their various "eras," but the first couple of records by the original lineup are the gold standard.
