Top 5 Albums That Changed The Way You Hear Music


Well I'll start it off. Pretty self-explanitory... Your top 5 bands and a brief description of why, would be ideal. This thread should help spread some musical love

1. Tool - Lateralus
While listening to this album is the first time I ever got eargasms. Right in the middle of track 9, Lateralus, the music just flowing through me. Some of the deepest, most meaningful, out-of-this-world lyrics I have ever had the pleasure of listening to. One of the first times I had ever heard real music.

2. Dredg - El Cielo
One of the most beatiful sounding albums, ever. The vocals and tone of the music seem to fit together perfectly to deliver deep, calm sounds that relax me like no other.

3. Pink Floyd - The Wall
Obviously.

4. The Mars Volta - Tremulant [EP]
I absolutely love the atmosphere of these three tracks, so raw yet cooked perfectly. I'm kind of torn between Tremulant and A Missing Chromosome, just because it has the Frances the Mute single on it.

5. Minus The Bear - Menos El Oso
I chose this as my 5th just because its so fun and upbeat, it always puts me in a great mood, and I can even sense a hint of Dredg in some of their music. They are great live, as well.

I know my reviews suck, but hey I don't work for the Times!

It's hard to really write just 5 when the actual topic is an Album that changed the way you hear music. There is so many names that really just have to mentioned so Ill just pick 5 random ones from the list.

1. Beach Boys - Endless Summer (Amazing everything and many of the songs from 'Pet Sounds' insprired the creation of #2)

2. The Beatles - Sgt Peppers lonely hearts club band

3. Led Zepplin - Led Zepplin (The first 8 albums all really changed the way we hear music but this was the first)

4. Daft Punk - Discovery (Making techno mainstream)

5. Nirvanna - Nevermind (This was the driving force that put an end to glam rock and hair bands. )

Yah, I have to agree with those who already said this much, an order is not going to work. I will even go farther and say that specific albums are a bit off from what really matters, which is what bands have changed music for the better. Even then, I do not know if it is reasonable to stick to only 5 of them. With that much said, in the sort of alphabetical order that you might find in a decent record store:

The Band
The Doors
Bob Dylan
Emerson, Lake and Palmer
Metallica
Government Mule
Pink Floyd
Primus
Queensryche
Rush
Black Sabbath
The Rolling Stones
Dream Theater
Jethro Tull
The Who
Yes
Led Zepplin

And even that list is of necessity incomplete but those are some of the big ones. Each of them has had a number of specific musicians who changed music in their own right, however, they are also bands who have changed music in ways that they could only do as a band. With that much said, I must include the following bands as a special division:

John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers
Cream
Delaney & Bonnie and Friends
Derek and the Dominos
Blind Faith
The Yardbirds

While each of them belongs on my above list in their own right and most of them have certain musicians who have done much for music as we know it (Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Ginger Baker, Steve Winwood, Dave Mason, Duane Allman...), they all have one man in common:

Eric Clapton

As a semi-professional musician, I tip my hat to Clapton. He has done one thing for music that no other musician has done in over two centuries. We have several ways of writing on paper what we do and the most detailed way is called standard notation (basically what you might think of as sheet music). What Clapton does with his fingers goes beyond what can be written in standard notation and new symbols have had to be introduced to communicate what he does.

You could add Jimi Hendrix to the list of musicians above, it was Clapton and Chas Chandler that launched Hendrix's career.

The best list I can muster is:

The Beatles - Abbey Road (This just does it for me, it was the first album that made me realise I lost something if I just skipped to my favourite track. Also I happen to think it is the finest rock music ever recorded.)

The Beatles - Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

The Prodigy - Experience

Kraftwerk - Trans Europe Express

Sky - Sky 2

The problem is I missed out funk, and blues, and folk and country and, and, and...

The Beatles - Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
Black Sabbath - We Sold Our Sole For Rock 'N Roll
Nirvana - Nevermind
Blink 182 - Enema of the State
Modest Mouse - Building Nothing Out of Something

The Black Sabbath one is more of like a greatest hits with Ozzy, but that's the only Sabbath album my parents had and I listened to it a whole lot, haha. And although Blink 182 isn't the greatest band in the world, they kind of opened the door to a lot of the punk and ska music that I listen to today so they were very influential to me.

How on earth has no one mentioned the biggest influence in my life in music:

PEARL JAM - Ten

As TommyHolly put in hist post about Nirvana "This was the end of big hair bands", which I hated. Ten is the album that drove me into a passion of music and is easily the most timeless CD I own. I have listened to this album hundreds if not thousands of times and its just as good as the day I bought it.

This is by far and above other albums that I have really "felt".

Between Ten and their follow up album Vs, Nirvana, Stone Temple Pilots - Core, and Smashing Pumpkins - Siamese Dreams... that was an incredible period of music. If you consider the crappy hair bands that preceded them, it was a breath of fresh air for this new "alternative rock".
