DT - Six Degrees Of Inner Turbulance - A true masterpiece

Pink Floyd - Animals - Cant explain this one. Theirs just somehting about it

Aerosmith - Draw The Line - Gotta love their "black album" so to speak. Draw The Line, Sight For Sore Eyes, Kings And Queens...a pretty heavy album for Aerosmith - alot darker approach then say Toys...

Rush - Fly By Night - Fav Rush Album

Queen - Queen II - An Album that was way ahead of its time. Almost like a concept album. Brilliant song writting by Freddie Mercury

Rush: Snakes and Arrows. New cd they came out with. HAD to give it a listen
Cheap Trick: Greatest Hits. Something about Robin Zander's voice that does it for me.
Yes: 90125. Had to buy it for the song Leave It.
The Black Eyed Peas: Monkey Business. Daughter wanted it. Good songs to embarrass her with my spastic "drive-dancing".
Tribute. Just damn good music.

I will have to check that one out! Been meaning to for a long time, but I keep forgetting.

It's the same album that got great reviews, right?


It is indeed, Alex. 8) I picked it up the week it came out after trying out a few samples of it online and was VERY pleasantly surprised (I had never heard the debut Stone Sour CD from a couple years back but I've got it now). I still pop it in the CD platyer for a few listens every couple of weeks.

The CD is getting lots of radio airplay for the two softer songs on the album, but the rest of it rocks hard ("30-30-150" and "Scars" are both excellent) -- if you go to their website they have several songs that play on it from the new CD.

If it were not for the fact that Corey has already said the next thing on the agenda is another Slipknot album after this last leg of the Stone Sour tour, I'd be very worried if I was one oof the other members of Slipknot that Corey and Jim would never come back -- this album shows that Stone Sour could be their main gig and they'd do just fine. :wink:

1. Frampton Comes Alive - Peter Frampton
Frampton is an amazing guitarist and singer and I have been listening to him almost nonstop for weeks.

2. Slaughter on 10th Avenue - Mick Ronson
Mick is another one of my new favorites and after hearing Randy was a fan I had to pick up one of his albums.

3. The Robert Johnson Complete Collection - Robert Johnson
This guy is the sh*t when it comes to roots blues!

4. Get Inside - Johnny A.
My guitar teacher recominded this guy to me, and I'm glad he did! Johnny has a unique style I don't really know how to describe it.

5. Mississippi Fred McDowell
Mississippi Fred is another one of my blues favorites. He is similar to Robert Johnson, but plays in open D tunning and with a slide.

Been all live recordings from the greats this week.

Ozzy/Randy-5-11-81 Cleveland radio show (I know it's not an actual "album", as "Tribute" is the altered state version, but that's getting a ton of play this last week!)

MSG-One Night At Budokan (Michael Schenker's awesome on this one!)

Gary Moore-We Want Moore! (Before he got the blues, his rock playing was incredible and live he stepped it up.)

Loudness-Live, Loud, Alive (Akira Takasaki's early mix of Randy, Eddie and Gary Moore is a joy to my ears)

Dokken-Beast From The East (George Lynch was on fire for this one!)

Right now it'd be mostly the following 4:

Overture of the Wicked - Iced Earth
Systematic Chaos - Dream Theater
Paradise Lost - Symphony X
Dimmu Borgir - In Sorte Diaboli

They are all new albums that i'm checking out (a lot) and i'd highly recommend em to everyone here :D

Just heard the new IE... I hate that they re-recorded the Trilogy with Ripper. Completely ruined the song for me not hearing Matt's vocals on it. :?

Megadeth - United Abominations (2007)
...this is the best metal album I've heard in about 10 years. Has that old school feel without the tired formula approach. Metallica should have went this direction instead of St. Anger, but that's another discussion entirely.


The Dregs - Unsung Hereos (1981)
... I can see why Randy liked Steve Morse, he's got great tone and chops to boot. Different kinds of music but Morse is similar to Rhoads in that they both play guitar parts that seem perfect to me. Both of them are "Guitar players' players"


Joe Walsh - Barnstorm (1973)
... Walsh left the James Gang and was trying to shake his guitar hero status and prove himself as a songwriter. Some of it sounds dated now and is a little cheesy, but there's some gems on here.


Oasis - (What's The Story) Morning Glory? (1995)
I really don't care for the band. They had a couple of good songs which can both be found on this album.


Jimi Hendrix - Axis: Bold As Love (1967)
Had heard some of the tracks from this album on various "Greatest Hits" type compilations, but only recently have I heard this album, which I really like.




I just want to add that I recently listened to Paul Gilbert's "Get Out Of My Yard", it's one of the best guitar virtuoso solo albums I've heard in a long time. Also like the Silversun Pickups album as well.

That's why I don't have anything else in my collection then Alive in Athens. I just don't know what album to get if they continuesly re-record their catalogue. I've got their cd-s on mp3, normaly I would buy the cds, but with Iced Earth I don't. It's my way of telling them that they shouldn't re-record al their material.

My cd/dvd-players has seen the most of these albums the last weeks:
Judas Priest - Live Vengeance '82 (dvd)
Jimi Hendrix - Axis
Mercyful Fate - Melissa (I'm actualy starting to get in an MF-kick again)
Almans Brothers Band - At Filmore East
Bark At The moon

Interesting to see other peoples list:
I saw Down - Nola, I wanted to pick that one up years ago and actualy forgot about it. Need to take a listen to that.
Also realy interested in these new albums:
Dimmu Borgir - In Sorte Diaboli
Megadeth - United Abominations
