#9albumsthatchangedmylife ...I’m getting on the bandwagon with this trend.  If choosing your best or favorite albums then 9 isn’t nearly enough. There is no way I could trim down to just 9 favorite albums.  But thinking about albums that may not be your best but something that really had some influence on your musical journey all these years then it was easy to pick just nine.  Maybe not even nine albums that had any consequential influence that changed my life. KISS album is the very first album I bought with my own money and was a big fan of heavy music when I was just a nose dripping kid.  Cowboy Junkies album is the album that got me interested in alternative folk and country which up to this point I would’ve never listened to that type of music.  Then the other just came along in each phase of my music listening being more open to whole variety of music.  I think each album or artist I chose represents a different period in my life as a music listener. They all have special meaning and a place in my life not only musically but me as a human being and how I’ve become who I am now. #mybloodyvalentine #jesusandmarychain #thesmiths #radiohead #neworder #joydivision #cowboyjunkies #brucespringsteen #kiss

Lost In Translation OST (2003). This is an unofficial vinyl release, this will have to do until they release a proper vinyl, which I think it’s way too overdue. This soundtrack would have to be one of my top ten soundtracks. Great movie and what a great soundtrack to go along with the movie. The soundtrack perfectly captures the whole atmosphere and feel of the movie.  Needless to say this soundtrack probably had a huge influence of shoegaze music coming back in form in the 2000s. Definitely made Kevin Shields to comeback as MBV.  Ii’s one of those soundtracks that will be remembered and recognized down in history as a great example of how it should be used to highten the movie experience. #lostintranslation #kevinshields #mybloodyvalentine #shoegaze #soundtrack #sofiacoppola

Cocteau Twins - Treasure (1984). My favorite album by the Cocteau Twins are due for a remastered reissue by 4AD this year.  Needless to say that I will be getting that even though I already have both the vinyl and CD. This is one of those bands that grew up with me and have been implanted so deeply into my life where it can’t never be removed or replaced by anything else.  Fell in love with that ethereal voice of Liz Fraser and even to this day there is no one like her.  This is one of those bands with a unique sound and presentation that just can’t be repeated or replaced by any other.  Get this album!  For god sakes get all of their albums and get blessed! #cocteautwins #elizabethfraser #robinguthrie #dreampop #ethereal #postpunk #4ad #lorelei #treasure

The Cranberries - Everybody Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We? (1993). Sad day today as we lost one of the most iconic voices of the 90s. So young to have left us, but your voice and music will be remembered, listened and sung by many for eternity. RIP Dolores O’Riordan. #remembering #doloresoriordan #rip #thecranberries #linger #dreams #voiceofthe90s

Teenage Fanclub - Bandwagonesque (1991). Probably one of the most essential band that you get to encounter while in college. Lots of albums to their credit and still releasing good albums. Although my favorite is Grand Prix, this album is just right behind it. Lots of jangle guitars and noise-pop elements. To me they’re more of a power pop band, reminds me a lot of Big Star in their sound. Hearing them now takes me back to those carefree days in college with no worries in the world just having fun and enjoying all that youth and freedom can offer. #teenagefanclub #bandwagonesque #powerpop #janglepop #indiepop #noisepop #collegemusic #normanblake

Various - The Early Days : Post Punk, New Wave, Britpop & Beyond 1980-2010 (2017). Two of my very first purchases of 2018 were conpilations.  One of them was a total waste of money, but this one is a real gem. Most of what’s on this compilation are very famous and familiar songs and artists. But there were couple of tunes and artists that I never knew of. If not for this compilation I would never have thought to find and hear them.  For that reason alone this was worth the money. It’s two LPs and a CD with variety of songs chosen just perfectly to make it worthwhile to really get into listening. Bands like Profil and Ideal I’ve never heard of before this and their music really captured my ears. Will be checking out those guys more and see if if I like their other stuffs. #compilation #postpunk #newwave #profil #skipatrol #theearlydays

Ministry - Psalm 69: The Way to Succeed & the Way to Suck Eggs (1992). I don’t know any bands that turned into an all metal outfit from being a synth-pop band. Talk Talk went onto post-rock but nothing so outrageously opposite of what they were.  People call it industrial, alt-metal  and all kinds of names to this album but to me it’s just pure classic heavy thundering metal. If you’re familiar with these guys from the beginning then you knew something was going to happen when they slowly sounded like Cabaret Voltaire and venturing into more industrial electric sounds after their debut.  Then you knew something outrageous was going to happen after hearing songs like Every Day is Halloween. They had it in their genes all along well at least Al Jourgensen did. To me this album is a pure classic heavy metal and you can’t get any heavier than this. It sounds like they’ve been heavy metal gods for years, nothing offbeat and nothing awkward, they know exactly how to present these heavy laden songs.  Too bad this album is not getting the deserved credit among other classic heavy metal albums. And it’s probably because of that stupid genre classification, industrial metal? what the hell does that even mean?? #ministry #psalm69thewaytosucceedandthewaytosuckeggs #aljourgensen #jesusbuiltmyhotrod #industrialmusic #heavymetal #nwo

The Charlatans - Melting Pot (1998). Almost 30 years as a band and releasing 13 studio albums along the way is really something to boast about. However, never had that massive success or recognition like some of their counterparts of Britpop who lasted only for a short time. I guess they chose to go a long distance doing what they like rather than do a one big bang and dying out. To have survived this long with somewhat moderate success all these years proves they’re serious about their music and their followers are quite loyal and strong. I’m a fan as well and have nine of their albums but have lost interest in the last three or four albums. Personally I feel they deserve more recognition and credit for the Britpop movement as much as all those other big acts of the time.  #thecharlatans #meltingpot #britpop #alternative #indie #90smusic #ukmusic

David Bowie - Stage (2017). Happy 71st Birthday to Bowie. Can’t believe it’s been two years since he left us. Truly a legend to be remembered and honored even after his death. Your birthdays will be celebrated and remembered for many many years to come...true legends never die! #davidbowie #happybirthday #legend #heroes

Arctic Monkeys - Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not (2006). One of very few bands that actually lived up to the hype created by the internet and the UK press. All their 5 albums are great to superb always exploring new territories. This debut is just packed with energy and punch that you couldn’t experience since the Sex Pistols album. Finally they’re out of their long hiatus and a new album expected this year. Can’t wait to hear what they have cooked up this time around. Absolutely incredible band since Oasis and Radiohead that’s come come out of UK in the past 20years. #arcticmonkeys #whateverpeoplesayiamthatswhatimnot #indierock #garagerock #ukrock #postpunk #alexturner #hypeband

Back Number - Encore (2017). I occasionally post something that not many of my followers have heard of before. If you’re from Japan then no doubt you’ve heard of these guys. Frankly I’m not a fan and their music sounds just way too commercial for my taste. But a friend of mine who recently visited Japan for the New Years holidays brought me back this gift. I’m very grateful for this generous gift which I’m sure it wasn’t cheap considering it’s a 4LP limited box set. And since I don’t have any of their albums it was an appropriate gift and very thankful for it.  I went through the four LPs and really honestly not my stuff and that language barrier didn’t help either, all tracks sounded the same for me. They’re very popular in Japan commercially, and I can understand why. It’s very easy to the ears but nothing memorable. Now the massive 8LP Spitz best album ‘Cycle Hit’ would have blown my mind...#backbumber #jpop #jrock #encore

The Killers - Sam’s Town (2006). Hers’s an album when you ask about it you get two totally different responses...you either worship it or hate it to guts.  Not many albums out there where you get these kind of responses, even the critics are divided on viewing this album. Personally this musical route should have been taken by The Killers on their future albums. I think they would’ve grown to be so much better band than they’ve become today.  I obviously adore this album and like many believes this is probably the most underrated album of the decade.  I’m not going to force this album on you if you hate it. It’s definitely not Hot Fuss and if you’re more fond of their debut than I can understand why you would hate this. Everyone has their own preferences and for me this is the kind of rock sound that sounds so dear to my ears.  #thekillers #samstown #underratedalbum #bestkilkersalbum
