No particular order:

>Metallica - Ride the Lightning
Solidified my love of Metallica and helped get me looking into more types of heavy metal.

>Red Hot Chili Peppers - Californication
The album that made me decide that bass would be cool to learn. Also helped me love California more.

>Mastodon - Crack the Skye
Got me into the prog and sludge metal styles. 

>Queens of the Stone Age - Queens of the Stone Age
Introduced me to the Palm Desert scene and all the wonderful things that came from it. Helped me start experimenting with lower tunings.

>Sleep - Dopesmoker
Changed my life.

>Death Grips - Exmilitary
Helped get me into dissonant electronic sounds and sampling and more experimental versions of the rap genre.

>Nine Inch Nails - Downward Spiral
It's sooooo deep (to a 16 year old me). Introduced me to industrial electronic influences

>Yawning Man - Vista Point
Helped pull me back in from the super distorted side of stoner rock.

>American Football - American Football
Taught me how to feel. jkjk, but it did help me realize that emo should sound like this.

>Beatles - 1
Made a 9 year old me start looking into music seriously.

Dance gavin Dance - downtown battle mountain II
Iron maiden - the number of the beast
Coheed and cambria - good apollo I'm burning star IV
Gorillaz - demon days
Periphery - Periphery



I think the most important one though was the foo fighters - echoes, silence, patience, and grace. First album I ever bought after hearing the pretender, such an influential album that blew 13 year old me's mind. I think I could still recite every line from every song

Go on then. These aren't necessarily my favourite albums but they definitely changed my life in some way. I'll put them chronologically, and put my approximate age in brackets.

Eliminator by ZZ Top. (8)
This was the first time I can remember really enjoying listening to music. My dad had it on a cassette tape and every time we drove somewhere I would put it on.

By The Way by Red Hot Chili Peppers. (11)
This was the first album I ever bought.

The Colour and the Shape by Foo Fighters. (12)
This was one of the first albums where I actually learned to play some of the songs.

Are You Dead Yet? by Children of Bodom. (13)
This was the first metal album I ever bought.

Master of Puppets by Metallica. (14)
This was part of my first steps in exploring the roots of heavy metal. I learned every song on this album.

The Blackening by Machine Head. (17)
The best sounding metal album I had heard at that time. I also learned every song on this album.

Passion and Warfare by Steve Vai. (17)
The first time I was like "holy shit you can do THAT on a guitar?!"

Octavarium by Dream Theater. (20)
The title track is my favourite piece of music. I have artwork from this album tattooed on my arm.

Periphery by Periphery. (20)
Brought something completely new to the table. Inspired a subgenre.

Deconstruction by The Devin Townsend Project. (23)
Absolute sonic absurdity. Totally unique.

Not explicitly in order (apart from the first two). I don't necessarily feel the same way about these albums as I did at the time, but they were all incredibly influential on subsequent music I've discovered since.
#25
in chronological life-altering order:

californication by rhcp ~> remember being mesmerized by the bass groove in scar tissue, decided it would be cool to learn how to play it
billy talent ii by billy talent ~> basically american idiot for sad canadian kids
from under the cork tree by fall out boy ~> i was a sk8r boi
axis: bold as love by the jimi hendrix experience ~> made me switch to guitar, inadvertedly triggered the "u say kanye, i say SABATH" phase of adolescence
london calling by the clash ~> intro to first gen punk, got me thinking it was okay to start liking other types of music again
songs in the key of life by stevie wonder ~> don't needa explain this one
midnight marauders by a tribe called quest ~> main album that got me over that whole 14 year old "can't spell RAP w/o cRAP" foxiness
is this it? by the strokes ~> around the time i became a Pretty Cool Kid, could probably list a bunch of other ones here insead
30 degrees everywhere by the promise ring ~> went heavy on the twinkles with my move to uni, same deal as above though

haven't had any sort of real major life events/change of perspective since then so i don't think i should be adding anything else just yet. can't wait for lil uzi vert to drop an album before the birth of my first child so i can put another one on the list

I have to do 13. They are mostly unrelated to periods of my life. I focused on albums that changed my way of composing and listening to music.

blink-182 - Take Off Your Pants & Jacket
Opened the way to the glory days of punk-pop and then punk.

Co La - Moody Coup
Showed me how experimental and borderline abstract electronica could build a groove out of a big mess. Its sonic explorations broadened my ears.

Future Of The Left - The Plot Against Common Sense
Literally changed me as a musician. Its mix of punk, noise, electronic elements and lyrical nonsense all executed with great expressivity was something that I had never thought about.

Immortal Technique - Revolutionary, Vol. 2
It may seem silly or redundant now, but this album in 2003 was completely left-field to the rap we were fed on MTV. There was a seriousness to it, not only lyrically, but in the way it sounded - the carefully arranged samples, how raw everything sounded - it felt like we were listening to a real band on a basement. Up until this point, rap felt mostly artificial to me, both in sound and in what it seemed to represent. Revolutionary, Vol. 2 was, in that sense and to me, revolutionary indeed.

Iron Maiden - Dance Of Death
Dat metal path \m/ The little contact I had with metal up until this point was with Metallica and Slayer, and both of them were too "noisy" to me. Iron Maiden was extremely melodic to my ears, and, at the same time, I didn't feel they were heavy at all.

The Nighty Nite - Until The Horror Goes
A pop album riddled in dissonant sounds. I'd love to sit down with John Congleton and understand how does he works with that dissonance and fit it into pop patterns.

Parts & Labor - Receivers
This was the album that showed me there could be a strong sense of melody in noise-rock. Still to this day, I find noise-rock mostly too unmelodic, but Parts & Labor not only sound like a completely different band out there, but they manage to make catchy noise-rock, solely with a simple, but great, approach to melody.

Son Lux - Bones
Listening to Son Lux for the first time was a mind-bending experience. Up to this day, I have no idea how to categorize them. Probably experimental ambient pop is how I'd put it but that shit sounds high-brow af. Anyway, their sound tampering and mix left a huge impression in me.

Streetlight Manifesto - Everything Went Numb
Their more progressive and serious approach to ska-punk is still unique to this day, and it was the first time where listening to ska or punk didn't feel fun. The fun sound is still there, but it was such a huge idiosyncrasy that it leaves that fun in the background.

Sunset Rubdown - Random Spirit Lover
There's nothing pleasant in Random Spirit Lover. Absolutely nothing. And it's not because it's extremely depressive or cathartic. There's nothing particularly depressive about it either. But the production is harsh, with a wall of sound that seems on the verge of bursting. The lyrics are ominous, but there's a discomfort in the imagery built. The songs are mostly roughly tied together and that relentless assault lasts for one hour. No, there's absolutely nothing pleasant in Random Spirit Lover and it's one of the most beautiful albums ever made, to me.

Titus Andronicus - The Monitor
Another big influence on me as a songwriter, I discovered Titus Andronicus after that phase where I found out there was more to punk than silly fun. To be honest, I never liked the political aspect of punk. Even as a teenager, I found it mostly impersonal and cringey. Titus Andronicus did exactly that - they made it personal. They had that tormented indie artist thing going on for them and instead of having a stripped down sound, which is mostly typical of tormented artists, they make it grand. The Monitor is probably the most epic punk album I've ever heard, probably even too epic to call it a punk album.

Tunng - Comments Of The Inner Chorus
When I first heard this album, I thought "this is exactly how I want an album to sound". And I can't really explain why, because it's not the most amazing sounding thing ever done, it actually sounds kinda lo-fi. But damn me if, after all these years, this is still my favorite production on an album.

Two Gallants - What The Toll Tells
When a guy from my uni class showed me Two Gallants, I was completely unaware on how they'd shape my sound. I was never a good guitar player, but I was always fairly good at finger-picking. However, I almost only used it for mellow folk. The drumming from Tyson Vogel changed that completely. He sounds as if his drums have a melody of their own, and the way he frantically accompanies the guitar along this album was nothing short of inspiring.


And yeah, that's it. Oh yeah, and this is in alphabetical order since I scrolled through my library.
#31
Not life changing. After all, they're only albums. But major influences, and the soundtrack to major life events:

The Child is Father to the Man - Blood Sweat and Tears
Sargent Pepper - The Beatles
Days of Future Past - The Moody Blues
Born to Run - Bruce Springsteen
Bat Out of Hell - Meat Loaf
Tommy - The Who
In the Court of the Crimson King - King Crimson
Ina-Gadda-da-Vida - Iron Butterfly
The Doors - The Doors
Disreali Gears - Cream
#32
Faith No More - The Real Thing: Did a lot of LSD listening to this album
24-7 Spyz - Harder Than You: This one too
Jane's Addiction - Nothing's Shocking: Ditto
Bad Brains - I Against I: ...and again
Type O Negative - October Rust: Full of passion and anguish
Tool - Aenima: Legendary
Machine Head - The Blackening: Quite possibly the best metal album ever
Yngwie Malmsteen - Rising Force: The first of its kind, phenomenal
Soundgarden - Louder Than Love: Late teens/early adult, more LSD
Nuclear Assault - Handle With Care: Opened my eyes
"Quick to judge. Quick to anger. Slow to understand. Ignorance and prejudice and fear walk hand-in-hand."
- Rush, "Witch Hunt"
#33
I got 2 more to add.
Until these 2 albums came into my life (someone left them at my house), the only music I was exposed to regularly was country like Hank Williams and Johnny Cash.

The Beatles - Meet The Beatles
Iron Butterfly - Inna Gadda Da Vida
#34
started with Beatles albums when I was very young because that's what my Dad used to play. Mostly Sgt. Peppers and A Hard Days Night. Having said that though the most played CD in the house from when I was like 5-10 was probably this:



then when I was 12-13 I fell into all the singles on the radio from Blink 182, Green Day, The Offspring, even a bit of Bye Bye Bye from Nsync lol.

the big turning point though was when I started learning guitar, and my teacher first lent me Paranoid and later Ride The Lightning which basically changed my course from punk to metal for the next 10 years or so. Other big albums for me around that time were British Steel, Van Halen II, The Number of the Beast, 2112 and Hellfire Club. A lot of my friends were right into the metalcore stuff but I resisted because I didn't like the vocals...

the last 5 years or so I've mellowed out a little bit, but still like a lot of the same stuff I used to. Only discovered Rubber Soul for the first time relatively recently, along with stuff like Ziggy Stardust (and then the rest of Bowie), Outlandos d'Amour, Let Love In, Shadows Collide With People, and most recently Nonagon Infinity which is stepping things back towards the metal spectrum a little bit lol.

there are probably dozens of other albums I could list and these aren't necessarily the best or my favourite, but they are definitely the signpost albums that helped shape my musical tastes at the time.

Chronologically

Millennium - Backstreet Boys... sweet boy
Marshall Mathers... sweet boy getting going to middle school and getting angsty / fuk da world
Nevermind... so angsty
Master of Puppets / Rust In Peace... still angsty but more focused, start becoming more detail oriented
Dragon's Kiss / Scenes - Marty Friedman... angst washing away, completely engrossed in the music
The Next Step - Kurt Rosenwinkel... opening up a whole new dimension of nuance in life's outlook
Serenade for Strings, Cmaj - Tchaikovsky... shed a tear performing this. All of a sudden, all the years slaving away at the violin and classical music made sense.
Well Tempered Clavier / Solo Violin Sonatas & Partitas / Keyboard Partita 6 - Bach... Musical and life enlightenment, though somewhat awkward and insular
On Green Dolphin Street - Bill Evans... Understanding Bach clarified the art of jazz, becoming more articulate
String Quartet 3 - Brahms... Getting away from mechanical flare and more focused on expression, seeing the "big picture". Becoming more well adjusted.
Pure Heroine - Lorde... Normie status unlocked
Art of the Trio - Brad Mehldau... Sophisticated, successful, im gud

...modes and scales are still useless.

If I had to pick at least one I'd say Siren Song of the Counter Culture by Rise Against.

Introduced me to a whole new genre of music that I hadn't associated myself with yet.

Quote by Joshua Garcia
Yeah I don't have any "life changing" albums but this was a good album when it first came out.

I think it was influential as far as my awareness and introduction to industrial metal. I bought it after hearing it at a store.  A lot of my list is albums that introduced me to various aspects of music, and most of the albums are the first ones I bought of that particular band. Nu metal was definitely something that I listened to a lot, especially in my late teens.  By contrast, I've only gotten into Periphery since I got into guitar less than 2 years ago and have really enjoyed the djent scene. I think since picking up guitar, I have a different kind of appreciation for artists than I did before. I still have a lot Nu Metal hammered into my head, and combining that with my current interest in djent and some prog-metal along with a better idea of what's being played, whatever I come up with should be interesting. 

If this is incoherent, I've had a few and went full nostalgia.
