I was telling my friend about my favorite albums and I said how I connected with The Pixies' Doolittle, just because I felt like it was so amazing.

And he came back with the reply

"I feel sorry for people who say they've connected with a movie or album. It makes me laugh, it's so sad."

I want to punch him in the face.

Anyone else connected with an album?

The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars. That album blew my mind. If it was a woman, I'd let it blow other parts of me, too.

Potemkin City Limits and Today's Empires, Tomorrow's Ashes by Propagandhi
4AM Friday and Front Porch Stories by Avail (really pretty much all their stuff)
Unknown Road by Pennywise
The View From This Tower by Faraquet
Rubber Factory by the Black Keys
Thicker Than Water by H2O
Operation Ivy (the comp with Energy, Hectic EP, and MRR sampler tracks) by Operation Ivy

And a bunch of others...

i don't know if connect is the right word. but some of them move me. and a lot can change my mood for the better if i'm having a bad day.

the best albums are the ones that are so flawless you can't think of anything else while you're listening to it. it's peaceful.

i think the only album i connect with is the violent femmes' self-titled album. it's gotten me through middle school and high school. no lie.

If Records, Films, and Novels aren't made for people to connect with them, then I dont know what the whole purpose of it all is.

It wouldn't be the same if you didnt connect with it, to be honest.

Discovering Alcest was a breakthrough for me. It was like the music I had been searching for for years. Just perfect in almost every way.

Agalloch, Amesoeurs, Mono and Behemoth are all artists I really felt best channeled my thoughts and emotions into music. Call it cheesy, but it's true.

I see where your friend is coming from. Not that I particularly agree with him, but I see why he thinks that. I mean, to him, it must seem like a person that connects with a Movie or an Album is pretty much "Infatuated" by it. What I mean by that is that they listen to, or watch it over and over again. Which, in turn, means they have no life. Either that or I have no idea what he means by that

Anyways, I connect with mostly Metallica (Black Album) and Stevie Ray Vaughan (Texas Flood).
#21
All of Dream Theaters albums get me when I read the lyrics and discover the meaning behind them. Other than that, Tool, Eric Johnson, Satch and Vai all get me connected.
As for movies, V for Vendetta had me in a trance after I saw it. Loved it.

EDIT: AND STAR WARS. STAR WARS WAS LIKE A PARENT TO ME.




Except my movie/tv connections were more than Star Wars. Believe me, Star Wars helped shape my childhood, but my favorite classic Nickelodeon shows, Power Rangers, Batman, it just goes on and on.

It's hard to try and list all of the things I've connected with in the past, because, the way I see it, everything I do helps shape me later in life, for better or for worse.

But music, especially now, is what I connect with the most.

Music is my religion.

I was feeling pretty crap yesterday and I had just downloaded Neal Morse - Sola Scriptura last night.

I gave it a listen and I felt much better. It really did give me a sense that God was with me and that I shouldn't be sad.
#25
Well, we agreed to disagree, and, what's more, he agreed to listen to Dark Side of the Moon.

If that doesn't connect with him somewhere, nothing will.

He was actually the person who made me realise that I COULD use music as a religion. I didn't agree with a lot of the organized religions, and when I heard him say that, it hit me. Really hard.

I was like, "Whoa.... Music basically IS my religion."

So, while not trying to quote Jimi all time, I've basically concluded that music is my religion.

While some would disagree that music can't be a religion, because it doesn't explain life and how life came to be, I don't care.

Music. Is. My. Religion.

Anyways, the biggest album for me is Jar of Flies by Alice In Chains. incredible album (or EP, really).

I really connect with Mellon Collie and the Infinate Sadness by the Smashing Pumpkins. I don't know how to dscribe 'connect'. It just clicked with each and every song on that album. It really comes together as on whole piece of art. At least for me it does anyway.

That album is what started it all for me. It was the first album of actual music I got into.


I have a ton of favorite albums now, but my most favorite albums are the ones that I can relate to and feel a sort of connection to the music, lyrics, and the artists themselves.
