i know there is a fav song thread but i didn't see a album thread?
Any way so what are your favourite albums? Albums that you cant live with out, that influenced you when you where growning up

There are a few good albums out there that have great songs constantly through out the whole album. For me it would be

Sepultura - Chaos A.D
Paradise Lost – Draconian Times
Tool – Lateralus
Pantera – Cowboys From Hell And Vulgar Display of Power
Metallica – Kill them all, Master of puppets, Ride The Lightning, And Justice for All
Clutch – Robot hives: Exodus
Black Label Society – The Blessed Hell Ride
Spiritual Beggars – On Fire

There are more but there are to many to list
then again there is always ‘best of’ albums!
All Children of Bodom albums
Disturbed Ten Thousand Fists
Billy Talent Billy Talent II

Blind Guardian A night at the oper

Immolation - Shadows in the Light

Bolt Thrower - Realm of Chaos
Possessed - Seven Churches

That T.S.O.L album is fucking great, by the way.


I think my two favourite albums ever are "Dust to Dust" and "Virus" by Heavenly - notable because the band were rather mediocre for two albums and then suddenly released two works of absolute genius.

Apart from that, I really like Stratovarius's "Infinite" as it was the last good album they made before going mad, and IRon Maiden's "Powerslave" just for the nostalgia value of it.


I don't think I could really list my favourite albums, but at the moment its;

MC Lars - The Graduate (If you've never heard of him, go download some stuff, he's awesome)
The Best of The Men They Couldn't Hang (It's pretty hard to find downloads of their stuff, but if you can, give them a listen!)
