    Default An album that totally changed your perception of a band

    So in my early teens whilst buying metal at every corner, I came across Judas Priest and got hung-up on their catchy tunes like Breaking the Law, Living After Midnight and You've Got Another Thing Comin'. Some of there songs just bored me though, like United, the Rage, I just couldn't get into it. I thought they were very hit and miss and lacked the edge they seemed to portray.
    Enter Painkiller. This album proved that Priest were the real founders of the metal mania storm (depending on your definition of metal). The title track, Nightcrawler, Between the Hammer and the Anvil, Touch of Evil, these songs just blew me away. That album has more balls then most band have in their entire catalogue. What albums changed the way you look at a band?

    1. I was an admirer of UFO. I had "Lights Out" and "Obsession" and thought they were alright. Then I got their live album "Strangers in the Night" and had one of those "whoa!" moments, realizing that Schenker was more than just a good guitarist.
    2. In a retro direction: I got into Pink Floyd when "The Wall" came out (I was 12). That was the 1st album of theirs I bought. From there, I worked backwards to "Animals" and "Wish you....". When I bought "Dark Side of the Moon" (I knew about "Money" but not much else) I was absolutely floored. I had thought "The Wall" was their master piece only to find that "Dark Side" was TRULY a masterpiece.

    In bad ways:

    VHIII
    "The Spaghetti Incident?"- Guns n' Roses (It had it's moments, though, I'll give it that)
    "A Momentary Lapse of Reason"- Pink Floyd (It's not Floyd without Waters... In fact I refer to this album and the Division Bell as "Just Add Waters" Volume I and II)
    "Just Push Play"- Aerosmith
    In Through the Out Door- Led Zeppelin (I actually am in love with half the album, but the other half is horse shit, in my opinion)

    In good ways:

    "Powerage"- AC/DC- their BEST album! I think it's AC/DC's version of "Fair Warning." Unfortunately, nobody other than hard-core fans of the respective bands really know these albums exist.

    "Dreamland"- Robert Plant- HOLY SHIT. One of the best albums ever. I doubt many people have it, but it is seriously the best. Way better than a lot of Zep, I think (you people are going to think I don't like Zep, but that's not the case. They're my third favorite, though I recognize them as the #1 band all-time)

    Default Soundgarden

    When Soundgarden's Badmotorfinger came out I thought that was an awesome CD. Then I got Superunknown and really started to get into the band. I went back and got all their early stuff. The first time I heard Ultramega OK I had it in my CD player for weeks. With songs like All Your Lies, Beyond The Wheel and Head Injury that CD is kickass.

    Oh yeah! How could I forget "Powerage"? The songs were so much better than "High Voltage" and "Dirty Deed..." (though those were great as well) but that album felt like they had matured a bit. Great call.

    Seventh Son of a Seventh Son by Iron Maiden.

    Before I went out on a limb and bought this album, I knew precious little about the band, and thought it would be nothing but mindless thrash. But when I popped the CD into my stereo, what I found was a deep, intellectual message progressed throughout a killer album, with top-notch musicianship to boot.

    The same day, I bought Blackmore's Rainbow, and was thoroughly disappointed. Dio's a great singer, but I do not like that album. Down to Earth with Graham Bonnet and Difficult to Cure with Joe Lynn Turner are both better, IMO.
    If it's BROWN, flush it DOWN.

    GO STEELERS!

    One album that did it for me was Dream Theater's Scenes From a Memory. A truly outstanding album.

    The videos from "Straight Between The Eyes" are what made me a Rainbow fan. From there I went backwards into the catalogue. I think Bonnet and Turner were the band's best singers (Sorry Ronnie).

    Rush's "R30"

    I'll tell you something, I'd never been much of a Rush fan until January of this year, until my buddy told me to pick up the DVD. I went the whole nine and grabbed the DVD / CD "Special Edition". The DVD made me a bigger fan but the CD definitely helped, since to and from school I could always listen to it on my iPod.

    Since, Rush has become my favorite band next to VH, Genesis, and Motley Crue. And no, there isn't a specific order or ranking.
    "I respect that youre passionate about this but what your saying is complete idiocy..." - MF5150 on McDonald's "preying" on young kids.

    "He was born a human, he's a horse's ass by proxy." - It's Mike on Eddymon.

    Animals is a good one. I saw Roger Waters this year and he played "Sheep" which was brilliant.
