15 Albums That Will Always Stick with You

Discussion in 'Music Forum' started by GEM37, Apr 23, 2016.

    She haunts the roads

    So, this was one of those Facebook quizzes that went around several years ago, but I always liked it. Basic idea: first 15 albums you can think of that'll always stick with you. One's you can always revisit. May or may not age well, but will always have a place close to your heart.

    Again, first 15 you can think of. No censoring.

    "The Earth Pushed Back" by Have Mercy
    "Peripheral Vision" by Turnover
    "Harmlessness" by The World is a Beautiful Place and I am No Longer Afraid to Die
    "Saturday Night Wrist" by Deftones
    "One Wing" by The Chariot
    "Ex Lives" by Every Time I Die
    "blink-182" by blink-182
    "Elva" by Unwritten Law
    "Here's to the Mourning" by Unwritten Law
    "Gospel" by Fireworks
    "The Greatest Generation" by The Wonder Years
    "There is Nothing Left to Lose" by Foo Fighters
    "Foiled" by Blue October
    "Boys and Girls in America" by The Hold Steady
    "Futures" by Jimmy Eat World
    "Morning View" by incubus

    (Gonna cheat a little and throw in Third Eye Blind's "Out of the Vein" and Eve 6's "It's All in Your Head" as immediate addendums.)

    good for you because Mark has at least ten albums (solo, as RHP, as Sun Kil Moon) that are amazing - go and explore!

    that one in particular sticks out (even more) because it's the first Mark album I heard and it changed me - it is now a part of me
