Hello everyone

I have seen quite a few members here list either their favorite albums of all time, genre, or focus on a certain band; I have enjoyed looking at these and have decided to try out my own, but it will be a little different:

I have decided to do a "evolution" of my hard rock/heavy metal music from when I really discovered it in 1999 when I was 13 to today. I will show you the albums that really got me to where I am today

Now some of the albums I will post I may not listen today because of various reasons but I include them because of their impact at the time, and I may comment on how I view them today in many cases will be a lot different.

I will start with 1999 and move forward, and in those years I will have both albums that were produced in that year as well as albums that are older.

I hope you enjoy this is my first crack at a larger project on here and I would love hear you thoughts and if you have/had similar interests.

First album in next post

"Rock is Dead" by Marilyn Manson – 3:11
"Spybreak! (Short One)" by Propellerheads – 4:00
"Bad Blood" by Ministry – 5:00
"Clubbed to Death (Kurayamino Mix)" by "Rob D" – 7:26
"Prime Audio Soup" by Meat Beat Manifesto – 6:17
"Leave You Far Behind" by Lunatic Calm – 3:13
"Mindfields" by The Prodigy – 5:40
"Dragula (Hot Rod Herman Remix)" by Rob Zombie – 4:37
"My Own Summer (Shove It)" by Deftones – 3:34
"Ultrasonic Sound" by Hive – 4:54
"Look to Your Orb for the Warning" by Monster Magnet – 4:42
"Du Hast" by Rammstein – 3:54
"Wake Up" by Rage Against the Machine – 6:04

So around 1999 I was coming off my R&B/hip hop phase of music simply because I enjoyed the beats rather than the lyrics; I saw the Matrix when it came out and while I enjoyed the movie, I remember liking the music in the background, the earliest part is when Neo is in the nightclub to meet someone to trade information, a remix of Rob Zombie's Dragula was playing and I loved it.

This album not only has some good rock on it but some passable techo mixes on it as well, but what drove me to buy the album (while visiting an uncle in Nashville, TN; in fact I think I begged him to buy it for me as I had already spent my vacation money)

Today I still go back to it and feel like how back in the day it felt like soundtracks for movies were for the most part thought out and well done; (In my list I have a few more soundtracks to add)It introduced me to MM, Rob Zombie, Deftones, and Rammstein and I credit it as the driving force into the wonderful world of rock and metal

Score today: 8/10

MY NAME IS KIDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD


KID ROCK

Ah yes, my first "dirty" album I brought, this is seen more as a hip-hop/rock album but I was hooked seeing the video for Bawitdaba. I remember I got in trouble for having this album around my former step siblings and was told by my former step mom that I would rot our brains. So I played the album anyway when she was not around (bitch) and I know my step bro enjoyed the profanity.

Today I don't follow KR anymore but looking back at this it is a pretty good album; of course there are the hits like Bawitdaba, Cowboy and Devil Without a Cause but the one song I remember is Black Chick, White Guy; it tells a story of a relationship between a white boy and a black girl who wind up fucking, fucking, some more fucking, and then it gets worse from there; at the time it was pretty graphic and the sound itself is pretty mellow.

Today's score: 6/10

Interesting idea, looking forward to the thread.

Kid Rock. Interesting. Never been a fan of his, but that album is certainly better than the crap he's put out the past 10-12 years.

I can already see you sitting at your computers, looking blankly at the screen, asking youself: WHO THE FUCK ARE THESE GUYS????.....at least everyone expect maybe our friends from Canada where this band hails

I actually got into this band through a video game. An awesome one at that called Sled Storm

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/d/d1/Sled_Storm_%281999%29_Coverart.png

This was one of my favorite games when I had the first Playstation, but this game was special at the time, in that if you put the game in a CD player and set the track to 20-25 you got to listen to the soundtrack, it was fucking mind blowing at the time; So Econoline Crush had this song that grabbed my ears: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GNBjlxmSIUw

That pushed me to get the Devil You Know, and I really enjoyed it; nothing heavy mind you just simple alt/industrial rock and maybe a bit borderline Christian rock. Most of the album is really good expect for a couple duds. I don't know if the band is still active according to wikipedia their last album was in 2008 but mentions tours in 2010, I'm wondering if anyone knows of this band and if you like 'em

Today's score: 7/10

Haha yeah. They had a song that was really huge here in like 2001 or 2002 or something that was played on the radio all the time and got huge rotation on Muchmusic. Then I saw them open for Three Days Grace and Seether in 2008 and was like "these guys are still around?"

El Gordo
08-04-2013, 11:55 AM
Yep, I remember Econoline Crush... Sparkle and Shine, All That You Are and You Don't Know What it's Like were all pretty big late 90's/early 2000's hits here. I never cared much for the band, but they certainly weren't awful.

Econoline Crush was actually one of the first bands I ever saw live, opening for another Canadian rock band called the Tea Party in December 1995 at the Oshawa Civic Center. That was probably two years before this album came out. They had another album (or maybe just an EP) that was a little harder and less polished. I thought they were really good live but being one of my first concerts and only being fifteen years old at the time I was probably caught up in the moment. But this album broke them huge, in Canada anyway. They had some really good singles off this album (All That You Are, Sparkle and Shine) and anything else I ever heard by the band wasn't too bad. But I never bought their albums. I remember albums coming out after this but none made the impact that this one did. I think they broke-up in 2001 or 2002 but got back together a few years ago for a nostalgia tour and album.

But Canadian bands often have a really short shelf-life (one or two albums is typical) and Econoline Crush pretty much fell into that category.

I'm moving onto 2000, where shit really picked up; if I remember something for 1999 I'll post it, but carrying on.....

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/a/a7/Cold_-_13_Ways_to_Bleed_on_Stage.jpg


1. "Just Got Wicked"
2. "She Said"
3. "No One" (feat. Sierra Swan)
4. "End of the World"
5. "Confession"
6. "It's All Good"
7. "Send in the Clowns" (feat. Aaron Lewis)
8. "Same Drug"
9. "Anti-Love Song"
10. "Witch" (feat. Sierra Swan)
11. "Sick of Man"
12. "Outerspace"
13. "Bleed" (feat. Aaron Lewis) (also known as "Thirteen" after 9/11)

To be honest I'm not sure what drove me to get this album; I recall seeing the video for Just Got Wicked and No One, maybe that was it. (So for a lot of albums in this list, a purchase was influenced by seeing a music video; sue me I was young and nieve)

It's not a great album but it's not bad. This album really broke Cold into the mainstream, and I can see why: Most of the songs are catchy and has the nu-metal feeling to it, as the genre exploded around this time. Listening to it now it doesn't too much for me, and I didn't follow Cold after that, expect for Stuoopid Girl from the next album.

Score Today 6/10

"Asthmatic"
"The Height of Callousness"
"Synthetic"
"New Disease"
"(Can't Be) Fixed"
"Cyanide 2600"
"Play God"
"Malnutrition"
"Seamless"
"Negative Space"
"Transparent"

Another example of getting hooked via music video, I saw Synthetic on MTV and it was catchy as hell; unlike a majority of the albums I will be posting, I actually enjoyed the other songs on the album rather then just the single; A more industrial metal feel overall this is an album that today I can go back and enjoy about as much as I did 13 years ago. I don't think Spineshack really took off with the success of this album as I haven't heard their name come up at all. If you are into industrial metal give this a try

Score today: 8/10

So i'm confused, you said you were doing 1999-present, but after your '99 album (Matrix Soundtrack) you did some 98 and 97 stuff. Was there something that I didn't read, because I are confused.

That's ok I knew this might be a bit confusing; what I am doing is going back to 1999, the year when I started listening to hard rock/metal; the albums may before 1999; what I am trying to do is show my journey from 1999 to now and how my tastes have changed. So some of the albums I will be doing maybe will be done before 1999, but I'm experimenting to go from year to year of my life (1999-present) and show you the albums that influenced me today

I hope that makes sense I appreciate the question

13. "My Gift to You"

I'm doing a double album post, because I brought both albums on the same day

So August 2000 was a rollercoaster for me; my dad got divorced after a fucking month, thus I lost two really cool step-siblings in the process, I was just starting high school and all the shit that comes with that; on the plus side I had more freedom to buy what I wanted so there you go; thus a theory of mine comes into play; some music you get is linked to your mood or situation; needless to say I was pretty depressed at the time, thus teen angust....Korn is perfect for people who felt like me!

Anyway onto FTL; This was the shit for the past two years everyone was talking about it; I'm sure I saw the videos for Freak on a Leash and Got the Life about 1,000 times before I got the album. This month marks the 15th birthday of the album, and although I'm not a huge Korn fan anymore, this is still an album that holds up well today. The dark lyrics, the twin guitar attack (7-strings was like Jesus 15 years ago) plus so many people (read:teens) connecting to the lyrics, and I was hooked. I think this holds up today, I think some of the deeper cuts like Dead Bodies and My Gift are more enjoyable to listen to vs. FOAL and GTL which have been overplayed to death

Today's score 7/10

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/b/b6/KoRnIssues.jpg

1. "Dead"
2. "Falling Away from Me"
3. "Trash"
4. "4 U"
5. "Beg for Me"
6. "Make Me Bad"
7. "It's Gonna Go Away"
8 "Wake Up"
9. "Am I Going Crazy"
10. "Hey Daddy"
11. "Somebody Someone"
12. "No Way"
13. "Let's Get This Party Started"
14. "Wish You Could Be Me"
15. "Counting"
16. "Dirty"


One thing I was not a fan of on FTL was the rap elements with Ice Cube and Fred Drust coming and sticking their asses in. Issues took that out and it was pure nu-metal madness. Issues to me hold up better today than FTL because of tracks like Falling Away, Someone, and Trash that, at least back then really punched you in the face; Let's put it this way, Issues is the one Korn album I would go see played if they ever did a full album tour of it

Today's score 8.5/10

I remember I purchased "Issues" at a virgin Record store in 1999. I was in 5th or 6th grade at the time during my Elementary days. It was my first Korn album and I use to be obsessed with the it. I Could not stop playing it day and night. "Trash" was my favorite song on the album. Truth be told, I don't really listen to Korn at all anymore, nor can i really stand them anymore. It's funny, I remember during my Elementry years the only bands that ruled my world was Papa roach, limp bizkit, Korn, Blink 182 ahahhaa all that good stuff. Everything changed though once I got into middle school and I discovered a little band called Slayer in 7th grade during September of 2001(I was first introduced to the band by the song "Disciple". Yes, that was my very first Slayer song)....that's pretty much when i stopped listening to limb biz kit, Korn, and all those other great bands. :hmm:

I was a hardcore KoRn fan from the first album, and I loved the second one too. But Follow the Leader just did not sit well with me from day one. Something about that album just didn't have the gritty, raw feel of their first two. And very few of the songs were even good, to me. And making the first twelve tracks four seconds of dead air? What the fuck is that? Issues I enjoyed a lot more. I actually liked the instrumental interludes most and the last song.

That said, I've sold or traded in very few of my CDs over the years. Follow the Leader and Issues aren't in my collection anymore. Whereas the first two albums will never leave. In a way, I wish I'd kept Issues.

(I still have my copy of Untouchables, but that's only because when I was selling them no one wanted it)

Okay, now I feel like a dick.

But actually, I remember reading an interview with the band when the album came out. The interviewer asked what the deal with the twelve blank tracks was and the bands answer was "nobody's ever done it, so we figured why no". No mention of Justin.

But that's really the stupidest answer I've ever heard in my life. I'm pretty sure it was Guitar World magazine and it was Munky and Head doing the interview.

Interesting it was the other way for me; I got Korn and Life is Peachy and while I liked some songs like Blind, Lies, Clown, A.D.I.D.A.S., and No Place to Hide, I just wasn't as into those albums as I was FTL and Issues. Now, I hold their first 4 albums in equal light

For those of you who remember these famous lyrics, this album was a huge deal back in 2000; Every depressed teen loved it, adults shit their pants in fear of thinking the song would promote suicide. Again, me being all woe is me and shit, I jumped right on this when I heard Last Resort. Needless to say my love affair with the album lasted about 6 months before I moved on. The rest of the album listening to it now is a bit of a let down with Blood Brothers and Snakes being ok. Papa Roach rode this for a while then just dropped off the map when they had to record a follow up to this. I didn't even realize until doing some research today that they are up to 7 albums. Maybe it is because I'm older and wiser(ish) but I don't see any value in this album. It was good for the times but today it feels weak

I think I recall seeing Papa Roach once, but I'm not 100%; I did see LB on the Summer Sanitarium 2003 tour but by then the wind had been taken out their sails and imo were the worst band that day

Jesus god, guessing we must be about the same age. You've pretty much knocked out every album I had back then too, pretty sure about the same time period as well. I have (still do) all these albums (except Spineshank) when they came out. Now i'm curious if I might see Union Underground (LOVED THEM), American Head Charge, Powerman 5000, & Dope. Throw in those 4 and that is pretty much my high school time period as well. The similarities are absolutely blowing my mind.

For those of you who remember these famous lyrics, this album was a huge deal back in 2000; Every depressed teen loved it, adults shit their pants in fear of thinking the song would promote suicide. Again, me being all woe is me and shit, I jumped right on this when I heard Last Resort. Needless to say my love affair with the album lasted about 6 months before I moved on. The rest of the album listening to it now is a bit of a let down with Blood Brothers and Snakes being ok. Papa Roach rode this for a while then just dropped off the map when they had to record a follow up to this. I didn't even realize until doing some research today that they are up to 7 albums. Maybe it is because I'm older and wiser(ish) but I don't see any value in this album. It was good for the times but today it feels weak

Today's score: 4/10

Bought this when it came out but traded it in not too long after.

Best song on the album is the hidden track - purchased Thrown Away on iTunes just for it.

I feel like throwing in my $0.02 for the albums I am familiar with :)

Kid Rock - This album was so awesome, for its time. I didn't listen to the whole thing for a year or two, only the singles (yeah, I was THAT kid), but I loved it. This ended up being the only Kid Rock album I ever cared about since History of Rock was very MEH and and I thought Cocky just sucked. Cowboy was one of my favorite songs for the longest time :lol:

Cold - I was never into this band, but I remember one song called "Stupid Girl", I think, and I remember really liking it and WANTING to get into them, but never put forth the effort to check them out.

Spineshank - YES. Spineshank was the shit. I think the first time I heard them was on the soundtrack for a snowboarding video game demo, forget which one, but I played the shit out of it and heard the song over and over and over. Ended up getting this album, and then my friend got me the following one for my birthday, which we rocked so much. Really fun band for their time, I need to revisit them sometime soon.

KoRn "Follow the Leader" - This was probably my favorite KoRn album that they released. "Freak on a Leash" was always on MTV and always on the radio, and I loved it, as well as their other singles from this album. Much like Kid Rock, I never listened to the ENTIRE album for the longest time, but after doing so I loved the album even more and even found some songs that weren't hits that I highly enjoyed.

KoRn "Issues" - Sadly, I never got into this album. I was more into the multiple album covers (I had the one of the drawing of them in the insane asylum) than I was the actual music. I am not sure what it was, maybe I got into it around the time that my tastes started to change to more (at the time) intense music (Slipknot, etc). It still had its moments though, but not as memoriable to me as "FTL" was.

Papa Roach - I got this album the same time I got Disturbed's debut album, and definitely listened to this one more than Disturbed. My love for them started when my brother gave me a 2 song sampler he got from a concert which had (I think) "Dead Cell" and "Last Resort" on it. So many great songs on this album, and one of the first CD spine stickers that I put on the glovebox door of my dads VW Bug :) (still there to this day!)

Limp Bizkit - Ah yes, The Chocolate Starfish, what a great album. I can never forget the first time I heard "Hot Dog" and my friend and I tried to count how many times Durst said "Fuck" in it, forgot the final count, but it was up there :lol: . I think I remember this more than the previous album due to the amount of singles on it. It sucks growing up and only listening to the popular tracks and being too scared to venture into the more "obscure" songs, but this one had so many good songs on it that I think I listened to the entire thing all the way through, no questions asked. I just found my copy of it in my garage a couple days ago... wonder if it still works!

On my last post I said that I thought Disturbed's Sickness was one of the best debt albums; this is another one

I had a bad taste for the metal/rap mix up from listening to Limp Bizkit and when I heard LP would be doing the same thing I vowed not to get near it; well I did and I loved it

What I like about LP is the two vocalist system with Mike rapping and Cheater belting out the screams and singing. The music was hard and heavy and a whole lot of fun. Almost every song has its own feel and taste and made me a huge LP fan for about 4 years; I'll get to Meteora here down the road but those two album hold a place in my top 50 of all time

It is a shame, like a lot of posters here I felt like everything went down hill after Meteora and I don't even know who the hell this people are calling themselves LP today. But at least they gave us one hell of a starter album

So someone a little older than more who rode the bus let me borrow this, and for someone trying to get into metal but not sure which bands to look into, this was a Godsend

Basically this introduced me to band that I would dig back in 2000, and bands that I would swing back to today; So I got my interest peaked on Slipknot, Sevendust, Dope, Powerman 5000, Staind, Kitte and System of a Down just from this album. And I liked Machine Head's spot on here but I lost track of them until recently when I really got into them and part of that was remembering liking From This Day from here.

Do yourself a favour and go back and listen to the rest of the album, because it's really good. They went in a really, really terrible direction after this album (and especially 2007 onwards), but Greyest of All Blue Skies has some great songs on it. At least check out First Time, the other single from this album, and Bones & Joints (which may have been a single but probably not). Just listen to the whole album so you can at least see that they weren't always the shitty poppy-rock that they are now.

Was it before or after that goddamn Paralyzer single, the one song I could not get away from, it was everywhere on TV and radio:flame:

Way before. In the mid-1990's they went by the name Rainbow Butt Monkey's. In late 1997 Primus was playing in Toronto with Limp Bizkit and Powerman 5000 opening. For whatever reason Limp Bizkit and Powerman 5000 couldn't make it, so Finger Eleven was added as a last minute replacement. They had just changed their name to Finger Eleven a few months before and didn't have much stuff so they still played a couple Rainbow Butt Monkeys songs. I don't even know if their first album Tip was out at this point.

Onto the booing, Limp Bizkit was just starting out and was still a buzz band at this time. They weren't the annoying anomaly they'd become in the years after. So a lot of people (myself included) really wanted to see them. Word got out in the line outside that Limp Bizkit weren't playing and people were mad. Finger Eleven went on and the booing started right off the bat. After four or five songs Finger Eleven basically said "fuck this" and got off the stage. Anyone else could've been on stage and gotten booed that night, people wanted to see Limp Bizkit. It just happened to be Finger Eleven and I'll always remember that night.

This had an enormous impact on me as it had songs from Godflesh, Morbid Angel, Napalm Death, Bolt Thrower, Carcass and Entombed, none of whom I had heard before and all of whom would become legends. At the time this compilation was released, none of the above mentioned bands had anything for sale in the US at all. A friend of mine who had got some Napalm Death imports encouraged me to get this, I think he wanted to hear some of the other Earache bands as well. I got it and my life long love of Godflesh and Napalm Death was born.

2001 was the year I felt like I started getting into more heavy material over the radio/MTV friendly stuff; and Machine really knocked me over

Starting with a gentle Latin jingle it turns heavy and dark quick with Get to the Gone. While this album is far from perfect some of the songs like Black & White, Cold, and Burn to Burn really started to mold the type of metal I still like today; plus you have to give props to a band not afraid to have a song called Shit in a Bag which is a song about.....shitting in a bag on tour bus

Static-X kinda faded away and in the latter parts of their career felt like a joke almost; but this is album I can pop in today and enjoy as much as I did in 2001

HOLY shit was this an aggressive album; no not just aggressive album, Iowa punched you teeth in and laughed as you counted what you had left. In 2001 I had heard of Slipknot from their debut album and I liked some of the music ok but I was laughing at the whole mask and jumpsuit thing. But then a friend loaned me this and I was blown away; it has been said during the recording of Iowa that it was a very dark time for Slipknot and was a lot of in-fighting among the 9 members. Well all that anger turned into Gold as almost every track on Iowa pounds your senses and does not let up; shit the first song (not counting the intro) is called People=Shit; it is quite hard not to be more in your damn face than that

I consider myself a casual fan of Slipknot; I do like some of the stuff from the other 3 albums but not of those I feel even come close to the aggression this one offers; IMO, Slipknot slowly went downhill after this and never caught that fire they had here. To this today I enjoy songs like People=Shit, Left Behind, Disasterpiece, Gently, and the title track as much as I did 11 years ago.

I credit nu-metal bands like Korn, Linkin Park and others in shaping my metal tastes; I feel like the majority of the hate came from these bands being super popular and getting time on the radio and TV a lot when metal in general doesn't really have that mainstream popularity. I may not listen to those bands much anymore but when I do I tend to still enjoy it as I did when I was in my early teens

So I'm switching it up a little; I figured as long as I am showing the albums that got me into metal, why show the shows I went do and how my tastes changed and stayed the same over the years

This was my very first hard rock/metal concert and I'm 99% sure about that I do not recall going to anything else before 1999. So some back story on this show: Korn had started the Family Values tour in 1999 and due to their rise in popularity when they released Follow the Leader, the tour was a hit, along with the 2000 version. I heard that Family Values would be touring in 2001 and I automatically thought "Oh yea I get to see Korn" turns out Korn would not be headlining but Stone Temple Pilots and I did not realize this until my dad had gotten tickets for us. I was sad that I assumed Korn would be on the tour but to make up for it, Static-X, Linkin Park and Staind (more on them later in this thread) would be playing.

The first band up were pure shit; they were called Deadsy and from the time they started to finish it was nothing but booing from the crowd. The only reason I believe they got on the tour was that the singer for the band was Elijah Blue Allman who is the son of Cher and her second husband Gregg Allman. Needless to say the music was horrible and I was so glad when they left.

Static X came up next and they also were good; I recall them having some sound issues but they pushed through and gave a good show

Cold
Black and White
...In a Bag
I'm With Stupid
Push It
Love Dump

Next on the bill was Linkin Park; I was very excited to see them as I loved their debut album Hybrid Theory (my review is a couple pages back) and they kicked ass.

With You
Runaway
Papercut
By Myself
Points of Authority
Step Up
Pushing Me Away
In the End
A Place for My Head
Crawling
One Step Closer

Staind was next and was the band out of the 3 I liked that I was looking forward to; I'll review Break the Cycle here in a bit but it was my favorite album of 2001 so I loved every minute of the show

Open Your Eyes
Mudshovel
Fade
Take It
Outside
For You
Crawl
Suffer
It's Been Awhile
Spleen

Stone Temple Pilots headlined and since I had no idea who they were and the fact that it was a school night we left after a couple songs and I don't think I missed much STP is not really my cup of tea; this setlist is from a different city but I assume it is the same set

Wet My Bed
Crackerman
Vasoline
Wicked Garden
Big Empty
Dead & Bloated
Days of the Week
Sour Girl
Creep
Pretty Penny
Trippin' on a Hole in a Paper Heart
Coma
Interstate Love Song
Plush
Moby Dick
Sex Type Thing

Deadsy: 1/10
Static X: 8/10
Linkin Park: 8.5/10
Staind: 9/10
Stone Temple Pilots: N/A

Note: in my research setlist.fm said Puddle of Mudd played on this tour; I do not remember them at my show so I assume they were only on for a few shows, more than likely the openers before getting replaced by Deadsy; I would have much prefered POM

So, around this time I had heard Metallica on the radio and liked some stuff but didn't really invest in them. Then a friend on my school bus (I credit the long school bus ride for introducing me to a lot of music) said if I like Metallica then check this out: Metallica playing a concert with a orchestra and I remember thinking: LOL A ROCK BAND PLAYING WITH A SISSY ORCHESTRA LOL GAYZ. Boy was I wrong

Say what you will about Metallica but this release was a highlight; many bands have done the show with an orchestra backing and Metallica made it work; a lot of credit goes to Michael Kamen and the San Francisco Orchestra, the whole album feels powerful, and once I gave it a chance, it turned me onto the band and pushed me to go after their other releases, starting with Ride the Lightning. One of my all time favorite live albums, S&M gave me the unusual route to Metallica

Today's score 9/10

I'm not the biggest fan of S&M. It just seems like most songs have Metallica doing their own thing and the symphony doing theirs. It doesn't seem like they try to play off one another too much, which is too bad.

That said, I fucking love No Leaf Clover.

Basically this. The only song that really stands out as playing off one another or the orchestra doing something that somewhat fits with Metallica is One, which is actually pretty badass on S & M.

I have really been enjoying the evolution concept of this thread.

I seem to know a number of people who got into Metallica via S&M. To me it is a very interesting record - a few songs work fantastically others not so much. However, Metallica is one of the few metal bands that pulled off playing with an orchestra to have the outcome be a very listenable and enjoyable record throughout.

Don't worry I'm not letting this die, it has been very busy for me but I will keep this going;)

I feel like the one band that just exploded in 2001 more than anyone else not just in metal but all music was Staind with Break the Cycle; I had no clue who these guys were outside of hearing Mudshovel a couple times and not connecting the dots that these were the same guys. This is the album I enjoyed the most in 2001 and also got the most work out of my CD player. BTC is a great mix of heavy tracks like Open Your Eyes, Can't Believe and Suffer along with very radio friendly hits like Outside and of course It's Been a While. Like them or not you have to admit Aaron Lewis has a serious set of pipes on him, and the band is not afraid to go after darker lyrical material with drugs, suicide and depression being major themes here which was perfect for the 10th grade me. It is too bad that they did so good on this album because for me everything thing else they did after this did not come close. As stated in my concert review of the Family Values tour Staind was a great live band and the material played off BTC translated very well live. I don't get quite as much when I listen to this today, but I give this album credit for not just evolving my musical tastes, but giving me a safer outlet for my TEEN ANGST GOD NO ONE LIKES ME back in the day

Today's score 8.5/10

1. "Back to School (Mini Maggit)"
2. "Feiticeira"
3. "Digital Bath"
4. "Elite"
5. "RX Queen"
6. "Street Carp"
7. "Teenager"
8. "Knife Prty"
9. "Korea"
10. "Passenger"
11. "Change (In the House of Flies)"
12. "Pink Maggit"

(note: this is the re-issue version with "Back to School (Mini Maggit) included which was released in 2001 while the album itself was released in 2000)

So going back to when I got The Matrix soundtrack I really liked My Own Summer (shove it) but never pursued the Deftones until 2001 when I saw the video for Back to School (Mini Maggit) and Change (In the House of Flies). I honestly only got the album for those two songs and never really got into the rest of the album but that is not to say the album is weak; in fact if I were to give it a proper listen I'm sure I would love it, as I did sample the other songs but I was in a one track mindset and only really focused on songs I had heard on the radio or watched on TV. I don't really listen to Deftones today but they are a good band and perhaps one day I will dive into them

Today's score 8/10


EDIT: Holy shit the picture is big I don't know why I use Wikipedia for uploading the album covers; if a mod can fix it be my guest
