    Default Your Top-25 One-Per-Band Albums

    Since it's comming towards the end of the year I thought I'd start a diary-entry alike thread to have a look at it every once in a while when my taste in music would change (becuase it certainly will). For now here's my list below, and I wanted to limit it down to one artist per position, with explaination why exactly this album is in my top.

    1.The Used - The Used

    Release Date: 2002
    Genre: The Used.
    It's the most solid and the most inspiring album I've ever heard since I learned to turn the inspiration from music into art or writing. The thunderstorm of melodies and vocals and brilliant lyrics from this 3-piece band's album goes beyond what I've felt before. It's a concept from start to finish as much as you can get it, which I still can not totally express.


    2. Van Halen - Balance

    Release Date: 1995
    Genre: Hard Rock
    , c'mon. I had multiple threads on how much I love this record, but to add once again - I started listening to music with 'Balance'. It's been my number one since 1995 until last year.


    3. Jimmy Eat World - Futures

    Release Date: 2004
    Genre: Emo
    It's personal, I'm not leaving comments on this one. Let's just say there's other person involved.


    4. Avril Lavigne - Under My Skin

    Release Date: 2004
    Genre: Pop Rock
    This album is the reason where I am now, and more related to topic the reason why I listen to 90% music in this list. And I think I've said alot on Avril before, so =]


    5. Zakk Wylde - Book Of Shadows

    Release Date: 1999
    Genre: Southern Rock/Blues/Country
    Well, Zakk IS the man! He plays probably the most passionate solos on this record, and I just love the calm mood of it. Plus Zakk's voice. Lyrics and music - it's a top score in everything.

    6. Frameshift - An Absence Of Empathy

    Release Date: 2005
    Genre: Alternative Metal
    Best of Sebastian Bach in this whole career - and actually the first and ONLY album I've felt in love with while still listening it for the first time. Not a fan of a concept idea, but lyrics don't give it away anyway (as long as you don't know it). Amazing mixture of epic in metal.

    7. Linkin Park - Hybrid Theory

    Release Date: 2000
    Genre: Nu-Matal/Rapcore
    I've learned to sing basically singing along with Chester Bennington for years. I could care less about Linkin Park as a band, but I've been listening to this album almost daily since the release and I could never get tired of it. 'Crawling' and 'In The End' are easily among the greatest songs of 00's.

    8. Ozzy Osbourne - Ozzmosis

    Release Date: 1995
    Genre: Heavy Metal
    Sums up Zakk's tone for me - and IMO the best Ozzy's album. Solid as hell, AWESOME production, great for blasting the roof off along with neighbours. The Prince of Darkness and The Riff Lord at their best.

    9. Skid Row - Slave To The Grind

    Release Date: 1991
    Genre: (Heavy) Glam Metal
    Just 'Quicksand Jesus' alone would make me put 'Slave To The Grind' in my top-10! It would be even higher if it wasn't for guitar solos, but that's nitpicking coz guitar works overally are awesome, not even getting started on vocals.


    10. Coheed And Cambria - 2nd Stage Turbine Blade

    Release Date: 2002
    Genre: Alternative Rock/Progressive Emo
    I honestly listen more to 'In Keeping Secret Of Silent Earth III' but it all began with 2nd Stage Turbine. One of the first records of the genre to go in the public. And one of the first records of the genre I started listen to.

    11. From Autumn To Ashes - Too Bad You're Beautiful

    Release Date: 2001
    Genre: Post Hardcore
    This record pretty much sums up the way I've been thru anything in the last 6-8 months, I love it to bits. It also defines the type of music I'd like to play if I ever get in a band myself - I feel most natural with this type of vocals/guitar playing and obviously lyrics. Changes of beat/tempo/mood/singing multiple times during the song - it's just the way I like it.

    12. Glassjaw - Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Silence

    Release Date: 2000
    Genre: Post Hardcore/Screamo
    Alright I managed to keep it out of my top-10 . I love the album but seriously - it has a vibe it was recorded in the mental ward. Daryl Palumbo has the most sick voice - it really does sum up the band's name. One of the things why I don't feel like listening to 'EYEWTKAS' this often are the lyrics, which basically go around hotels, whores and everything related. Beautiful


    13. Bullet For My Valentine - The Poison

    Release Date: 2005
    Genre: Metalcore
    I've said pretty much everything in the thread I've started on Bullet - to add my own guitar tone/playing was majorly inspired by this album.


    14. Queen - A Night At The Opera

    Release Date: 1975
    Genre: Classic Rock
    Woo thanks dad for ever bying this AMAZING record and introducing me to rock music. I recall spending hours listening to "The Prophet's Song" over and over again daily as a 5-year-old, and despite I over-listened the album over any possible limits - I admire it to date.


    15. Bright Eyes - I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning

    Release Date: 2005
    Genre: Indie
    I love every Bright Eyes album, but since this one was the first one I bought I'm going with "I'm Wide Awake". Whenever I feel this really really not good - this record never stops to bring me back to normal, just to listen to Connor's voice is enough.

    16. Something Corporate - North

    Release Date: 2003
    Genre: Rock
    And that's the album I listen to when I'm overally happy and excited - I can't really express what I mean but there's so much light in the music in 'North' that listening to it makes me literally feel the moments of living. Most of my all-time favorite songs are on this record.


    17. Brand New - Deja Indendu

    Release Date: 2003
    Genre: Alternative Rock/Indie
    For months this album was one of the very few I could listen to when I moved homes, and it steadily grew to be one of my all-time favorites. Brilliant lyrics, amazing melodies, thrilling vibe thru the album with closing "Play Crack The Sky" which is definately in my top-10 songs, one word - awesome.


    18. Roxette - Look Sharp!

    Release Date: 1988
    Genre: Pop Rock
    I really picked that one Roxette's record because of the cover - I love them all equally.


    19. Eisley - Room Noises

    Release Date: 2005
    Genre: Indie
    If you take Glassjaw record and turn it the other way around - that is pretty much exactly the opposite. Uberly mellow female voices, lyrics about happy things and "Memories". I love Eisley and I'm totally in love with "Room Noises".


    20. Death Cab For Cutie - Transatlantisism

    Release Date: 2003
    Genre: Alternative Rock
    Again, along with Jimmy Eat World's "Futures" - I'm not developing more.

    21. Sammy Hagar - Not For Sale

    Release Date: 2002
    Genre: Hard Rock
    My favorite Sammy's record, and I shan't explain why Sammy is in my top-25 artists


    22. Story Of The Year - Page Avenue

    Release Date: 2003
    Genre: Hard Rock with elements
    Listening as typing, it's honestly the mainstreem side of the present rock, but these are some really quality songs on this record. Been listening to it daily for the last 3 months so it deserved it's place in my list.


    23. Funeral For A Friend - Casually Dressed And Deep In Conversation
    -I hate the cover so ain't posting-
    Release Date: 2003
    Genre: Mainstreemish Post Hardcore
    Used to be in my top-5, then something about the band started to turn me off against their music and until lately I haven't been even listening to them for months. Then I decided to give a 'nostalgia' listen and you know, if it's all about music then I definately still like the album. No skippers, great songs of both up-beat and slow-tempo, so here it is at number 23.


    24. Taking Back Sunday - Where You Want To Be

    Release Date: 2004
    Genre: Alternative Punk/Rock. Go figure
    I made my first painting in oil listening to that album, so thanks for the inspiration! Although I honestly more wanted to go and dance rather than blend highlights on elvish statues with 000-fine point brush!


    25. Black Label Society - Stronger Than Death

    Release Date: 2000
    Genre: Berzerker Metal
    And the final place goes to Zakk "Da Man" Wylde . Out of 8 BLS records I absolutely admire I had to pick at least one despite Zakk already has two mentions in my list.

    -------------------------

    Alright, so - 25 albums, 10 genres and 30 years range between top-vintage and top-new records.
    Keep it comming!

    This will require some thought on my end. I'll get back to it.

    Dear Lord I am getting old - I haven't even heard of most of the band's in the original post!
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Preferred pronouns: he/him/his

    Hurricane Halen - Let's all gingery touch our sword tips!!!
