I think that David Gilmour was the one who said that he would love to had never listened (and also made) Dark Side of the Moon to see what his experience by listening the album would be.

If i could choose only once the experience of listening again for the very first time an album would be (today, not tomorrow) is "Abbey Road" album of The beatles, I still remember when i listened for the first time (an uncle, who was a musician, gave me a pirated copy of it as a present, and made me listen to it with his audiophones, my mind was blown out and i was probably arround 10).

By this thread we could discover albums that had blown people minds that we haven't still listened and we can share our experiences!


Pd1: Can someone confirm that the inicial phrase was said by David Gilmour? I can't find the exact words on the net by hum
Pd2:So, I normally don't do threads on the pit, but i think this could be fun

The ending legit scared me so much I kicked out at a wall and broke of part of my toenail.
No other album's done that to me :3

But no really SfaM is like the greatest thing ever.

Or it would be if Rudess hadn't put in that shitty horn synth solo in beyond this life.

This Is A Long Drive For Someone With Nothing to Think About by Modest Mouse. Listened to that for the first time when I was about 12 and don't think anything has been able to surpass it, and maybe only one album has been able to match it.

Regret Instruction Manual Issue Two: Letting Go Versus Holding On by Stunt Rock. Think I first listened to it when I was about 14. Not quite sure. First time I really listened to sample based music, and this is definitely the epitome of it. The movie samples he is able to put together is more meaningful than most lyrics I hear in songs. And the music samples are pretty creative too.

ok

Kezia - Protest the Hero
It's my favorite album. Opened up a whole different kind of music to me. Pretty much the reason I like some of my other favorite bands like BTBAM, Converge, Dillinger Escape Plan, Every Time I Die, Human Abstract, and the Fall of Troy. It really pushed me to get better at guitar and to like songs not in the standard verse, chorus, verse, chorus, solo, chorus structure. I just remember the way the instruments playing off of each other stunning me the first time I listened, and reading along with the lyrics was fantastic.


Is This It - The Strokes
I just love this album. I don't remember the first time I listened to it. I know it's kind of a cliche top album, but it really is that good. Unlike the Protest album, it didn't really inspire me to do anything or listen to new music. It's just really really good. Each song tells a story and I could really hear them over and over and over again.


Fück Your Emotional Bullshit - Snowing
Like Kezia, it really opened me up to a whole different kind of music. Emo/Screamo and all that to be precise. It's short. Only 12 minutes actually, but every song is perfect. It's just a fantastic little album.


American Idiot - Green Day
This one is a bit different. It's not really one of my "best albums" but it's one of my favorites. I just remember hearing it for the first time when I was 12 (maybe 11???) and being blown away. Just opened the door to a whole other world of music. Before that it was basically just classic rock. Also made me want to pick up the guitar at the time and I still play. I guess it probably wouldn't have that same effect on me anymore, but going back not knowing what I know now and listening would be awesome!

That was actually Portnoy's fault. Portnoy wanted a Zappa-esque section and made Jordan do it.

For me, it would be Dream Theater's Scenes From a Memory or Awake.

Skeletal Lamping was the album that really got me into Of Montreal. I had heard, and liked Sunlandic Twins, but I hadn't really been turned onto them yet.

It was the first I'd heard a "newer" band use that more polished funk/pop sound in such an aggressive fashion. Combined with elements of experimental rock (the end of the first track is just so insanely ambitious). It was also a great example of a "newer" band creating such album-centric rock, something that had the expansive rock opera pacing of The Wall with the glam attitude of a David Bowie/Prince love-child.

And some of the lyrics are just so blunt they hit you like a kick to the face (example):

Appetite for Destruction by GNR.
It's basically my favorite album ever, and I love every song on there. It was magical the first time I heard it. Would love to feel that magic again.
Waking The Fallen by A7X
Opened up the world of nontraditional vocals to me and the heaver side of metal. Another album which is just full of great music.
Stadium Arcadium by RHCP
Nostalgia. Nostalgia as ****. The first time I cracked into it I was lost in it for months. Months very well spent. I'd like that again.
Highway To Hell by AC/DC
Just a really good album full of really good songs. It was magic the first time, it'd be magic again.
All Killer, No Filler by Sum 41
To hear Pain For Pleasure for the first time again, after all the punkpop. That would be priceless.

Now this album means a lot to me. It was the first thing I listened to after I found out about four of my friends being killed by a drunk driver. I also have played acoustic versions of some the songs at my grandparents funeral.

Anything by Nujabes, or Dilla, also the album "Madvillainy" I couldn't fully appreciate it the first time I heard it but I feel if I heard it for the first time as my present self I could.

As for non hip-hop I'd have to say "kind of blue" by Miles Davis or "Underground" by Thelonious Monk

Anything by The Beatles and the first 5 Zeppelin albums.

Also, not an album but if I could re-live my first phish/umprhey's show id shit my pants

Albums, eh? Let's see.

Rise Against - Revolutions Per Minute
I never had a proper listening experience for this album until well after I had heard all of the songs. I had it when I was still in the phase of shuffling tracks from artists rather than listening to full albums. It's my favorite album from them and I really regret not having my first experience with all the songs be a front to back listening.

The Glitch Mob - Drink the Sea
This album is an auditory journey of sorts. It's just full of incredible soundscapes while simultaneously dripping with attitude.

Alcest - Souvenirs d'un autre Monde
I used to really like this album. It took me places. Now I find it boring to listen to. I wish I could get that feeling back.

The Gaslight Anthem - The '59 Sound
I don't think I've ever liked an album so much right off the bat as I did this one. Songs can often cause an emotional reaction from me, but not many can make me physically smile the way I did when Brian started singing in Great Expectations. The album was like a beacon of hope for me during some tough times. It was something for me to hold on to, telling me that things might get you down but everything will be okay.

Shad - When This Is Over
When I heard this album, my interest in hip hop had been decreasing for a long time. But this guy comes out of nowhere and literally rocks my world. He's clever, a good rhymer, and his music covers a wide variety of topics. It's hip hop that makes you think. And the last track absolutely floored me when I heard it for the first time. I had to sit and absorb it for a good while after my first listen.
#33
Vehemence - God Was Created

I heard this album almost 2 years back. At the time I was getting tired of listening to the same old same sold, so I decided to look for new music. Well, I finally found this album and listened to the track "The Last Fantasy Of Christ" first, and immediately I was blown away. The beautiful intro that blasts into the technical verse riff and goes through the motions of the song like you would expect until the bridge where the intro motif is fleshed out and the emotional ending all made me go, "wow". I listened to the rest of the album and I was amazing at how well the band fused beautiful melodies and harmonies with such an aggressive aesthetic.

What it meant to me then was a new, insanely amazing Death Metal album. I still feel as amazed at the album and the brilliant riffs, melodies, and solos it contains as I did on the first day.

great band.

Can I get banned for posting that?


I'm pretty sure you can't be banned for that. I would also recommend avoiding the first album, The Thoughts From Which I Hide, because it's pretty bleh. Reconditioning The Flock is the best song on it.

Shad - When This Is Over


This is great thanks for sharing!

Made me think of another:

"Moment of Truth" By Gang Starr

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4riCUJ3l6Lk

Don't let the groups name fool you, its one of the realest/deepest hip hop albums I have ever heard. In fact I vividly remember the first time I heard it. I was at my friends house he was like 20 and me and my other friend were around 16/17. Him and his wife put on the title track and I don't want to sound cliche but that song totally changed my life. I remember hearing the line:

"Actions have reactions don't be quick to judge, you may not know the hardships people dont speak of"

and thinking damn...why is no one else bringing this vibe? now a days hip hop is about pussy, money, weed, but these guys were bringing realness.

that very same day I heard Quasimoto for the first time and my head almost exploded when I saw this video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2_5edxArGT8

On another note do any of you remember hearing Electric Wizard for the first time? Some one here on UG showed them to me, and before that I was never really into metal because it was too fast and aggressive. I heard EW and it totally opened me up to a whole new genre. Really chill to wind down to, and it is the perfect atmosphere for me to enjoy

there would be a lot of albums i would like to listen to the first time again, but if i had to pick one it would have to be

Kid A - Radiohead

that album was one of the most influential albums for me personally, opened me up to all kinds of music and now i love all kinds of genres rather than just 'rock'. although it wasn't as out there or experimental as people thought (i think thom yorke said something along the lines of 'if you listened to what we've listened to, you realize this isnt that out there'), for a major rock band to take that kind of direction following one of the biggest albums of all time, was remarkable. and boy did they pull it off, creating imo a masterpiece and one of my favorite albums ever.

i enjoy how i listened to what iv listened to. i wouldnt change or go back and redo. i loved the first time i heard btbams colours, it was the live video and i was stoned as **** my 3rd time ever smoking. it blew my mind and i came everywhere but it wasnt even embarrassing. the first time i heard abbey road was great too. was going out of town after xmas and i got to listen to it in peace. same goes with all my music iv heard. but you can always lsiten to my music for the first time???????????
