My favorite album of all time is The Joshua Tree, but I think it was Bruce Springsteen's Born in the USA during my senior year in high school that changed how I listened to music. I haven't listened to it from start to finish in a long, long time, but when I first got it I played it constantly. It was not only my solace and anchor during a very confusing time in my life, but it was also a revealation. I'd never heard rock music with that kind of raw emotion and honesty and beauty before.

To everyone's fav. albums/albums that changed how they listened to music in this thread so far

Great choices. I'm fully impressed with you all, except for HeadsOnSticks. I would have thought his favorite album was Flock of Seagulls.

How can you call yerself a music fan without acknowledging the sheer genius of that album? Prince has got mad skillz! Anyway, FOS was too obvious a choice for me anyway...had to keep ya'll on your toes. lol.

HeadsOnSticks, I wasnt mocking Prince. I have a few Prince songs of my own lurking about my mp3 playlists..... I'm quite a fan of the song "7". I'm also down with "When Doves Cry", etc, etc. It took guts on your part to state your undying love for Prince.

I was just giving you crap about your love of FOS. Probably The Bangles would have been a good choice for you too.

Kid A was a fantasmulistic choice.

What do you mean "it took guts on my part..."
Lotsa people like Prince. My point (and the point of this thread) was to discuss albums that really changed your musical landscape, changed the way you heard things. And for me, hearing "Sign `O The Times" was a pretty moving experience. I'd never heard anything like that before, and seeing as how my tastes in music were pretty limited at that time it was something completely different.

"And now for something completely different..."

Maybe I should've made the thread about guilty pleasures instead. hahahahaha!

Anyway, no worries. I'm not embarrassed about my affinty for Prince albums. he's the fucking man. Or woman. Still not sure.

Good albums are changing-- they change you and they are actually kinetic themselves....their influence isn't solely contained within the span of one year or one mood or one phase...

Darkness on the Edge of Town ~Bruce Springsteen
Achtung Baby ~U2
Sheryl Crow (self-titled)
August and Everything After ~Counting Crows
What's the Story Morning Glory ~Oasis
Kid A ~Radiohead
From the Choirgirl Hotel ~Tori Amos
The Battle of Los Angeles ~Rage Against the Machine

Sometimes it's hard, but I can listen to these CDs sometimes like I did before I had never heard any of the songs on the radio or anything...
