      With all of the new music constantly flowing, we all have those few timeless albums that never lose their place in our rotations. What are some albums that you guys still listen to that will never get old, and still feels like that first time you put it in your record player/tape deck/cd player?

      I'll start it off with two records that will always be on my list:

      Beloved(us) - Failure On
      A New Found Glory - Sticks and Stones

    2. 05-24-2012 10:39 AM #2
      Sublime's Self titled
      Rage Against the Machine Evil Empire
      Joe Satriani Surfing with the Alien
      The Ocean Heliocentric

      So timeless you don't even need to write the musician's name.


      Kind of Blue is legit though.

      i was being psuedo clever w/colors - it wouldn't work w/the musicians. all 3 are timeless masterpieces, imo.

      i saw joe satriani open for SRV @ nyc pier back in the day. i haven't listened to surfing in 20 years, maybe i'll dig it out

      there is only one RED! i have a special relationship to it & for me it's timeless, although i admit to rationing it as pushback to the law of diminishing returns.

      Don't get me wrong. Red is a great album, but it's definitely of a time.
      In fact, the time was a banner year for Prog. Just consider the goodness that came out in 1974:

      Genesis - Lamb
      Yes - Relayer
      King Crimson - Starless and Bible Black (and Red)
      Gentle Giant - The Power and the Glory
      Peter Hammill - In Camera
      PFM - L'isola di Niente

      Some of these are newer, but to me, bacame instant classics.

      First off, I'm surprised to see not much classic rock on here. But I'm a 90s alt rock kid, so yeah, I don't have much full album favs before that timeline.

      Pink Floyd - dark side of the moon
      Alanis morissette n jagged little pill
      Buckcherry - self titled
      Daft punk - discovery
      Disturbed - the sickness
      Dropkick murphys - blackout
      Garbage - self titled and 2.0
      Goo goo dolls - dizzy up the girl
      Green day - dookie
      Guano apes - walking on a thin line
      Incubus - make yourself
      Korn - follow the leader
      Linkin park - hybrid theory
      Matchbox 20 - yourself or someone like you
      Mumford and sons - sigh no more
      A perfect circle - mer de noms
      Rob zombie - hellbilly deluxe
      Sugarland - love on the inside
      Todd snider - live storyteller
      Tool - lateralus and aenima
      The used - self titled
      Vast - music for people

      And..... Where this username came from

      Toad the wet sprocket - coil


      A grouesome time, I love your list. I also listen to everything, but these are the albums I just can't stop listening to

      sometimes I think the 90's made the best music ever. I agree 100% with the used's self titled... didn't even think of that one!

      Yeah, I almost forgot that one too. And I'm surprised someone agrees with me, most people can't stand my taste in music. Lol

      I'm super serious about the debut from mumford and sons too. I know it came out two years ago and hasent had time to age, but the first time I played it, I smiled, cried, andlaighed a little bit at the end. All in, I just wanted to find the band and give them all the biggest hugs. I know it sounds corny, but I can't wait for thier next album.

      I think I'm gonna go listen to it for the millionth time again right now.

      I got two more I forgot,

      Staind - dysfunction

      And a real insane one I can't yet fathom how it gets better with age.

      Stabbing westward - darkest days

      For anyone who has heard this album through, you know what I'm talking about. When you're in the need to purge, this album will leave you a sniveling little crybaby, but you'll feel better afterwards.

      I'm sorry brah, but nu-metal is not timeless. It's very timed. In fact, those few years in the mid-late 90s will be an eye sore on the metal world for all eternity.
