here are some classics:
snapcase- progression thru unlearning
hwm- no division
pantera- vulgar display of power
fugazi- 13 songs
blak flag- first four years
all at the drive in recordings are amazing
pretty solid list. mine would go something like.
deftones - white pony, refused - the shape of punk to come, thursday - full collapse, glassjaw - everything you ever wanted to know about silence, converge - jane doe, blink - 182 - dude ranch, botch - we are the romans, poison the well - the opposite of december, underoath - the changing of times, brand new - the devil and God are raging inside of me, zao - where blood and fire bring rest, new found glory - s/t, the juliana theory - emotion is dead, dr dre 2001, the dillinger escape plan - calculating infinity
I think these would be considered more "Building Block Albums" to where we/the music we're listening to is today as opposed to "Classic" (Classic to me equates more to the must-haves of the current lineup Take This To Your Grave, Deja Entendu, etc) but nonetheless, awesome list.
-I own 8 of these.
-Dude Ranch and Relationship of Command is definitely in my top 15.
-In the Aeroplane Over the Sea is probably in my top 15, too. Oddly enough, I was listening to My Heart to Joy's cover of "King of Carrot Flowers" 1 & 2 when I clicked this list.
-I love London Calling, but I can't say it would be in my 15.
-I need to listen to Emergency & I more. I like it a lot but the lack of owning an actual copy kinda hurts.
-Thursday's worst album is in this list.
-Ugly Organ > Domestica
-If you asked me 5+ years ago, Hello Rockview would definitely be in my 15 but I think it lost its replay value over the years.
-I can't get into Moon & Antarctica as much as everyone else, but good listen.
-Nothing Feels Good is pretty great but I'll take Wood/Water over it most of the time.
This is way better than I thought it was going to be. I was most pleasantly surprised by the Dismemberment Plan...that album is so great. Nice to see Hello Rockview on there as well, that being the soundtrack to my high school days haha.
I would have included Jimmy Eat World's Clarity and Weezer's Pinkerton.
