1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    The first two albums I ever bought - Green Day 'Dookie' and Offspring 'Smash', Way back in 4th or 5th grade.

    Actually I had an Ace of Bass cassette back in 3rd or 4th grade, but that doesn't count [​IMG] .


    Wow you are old....that is some classics man......[​IMG]

    Nice to see Rumours being thrown up, Dreams is one of my favourite songs of all time. Stevie Nicks circa Rumours could also go in the unusal crushes thread as well...

    Every Fleetwood Mac fan should listen to Mystery to Me and Bare Trees. Wonderful.

    ^ Doc, it's a beautiful record but to be honest I like his earlier, rougher stuff more.

    Harvest is also beautiful, but still has the ragged edges of youthful disillusionment.

    I've been meaning to read Shakey, have you read it?

    These two are the most important to me and I could listen to each 24/7 until the day I die:

    Aphex Twin: Selected Ambient Works 85-92
    Beach Boys: Pet Sounds

    Some other albums that will never grow stale:

    The Beatles "Big 5": Rubber Soul, Revolver, Sgt. Pepper's, White Album, Abbey
    Neutral Milk Hotel: In the Aeroplane Over the Sea
    John Coltrane: A Love Supreme
    Wilco: Yankee Hotel Foxtrot
    Radiohead: OK Computer
    Bowie: Low
    Miles Davis: Kind of Blue
    Radiohead: Kid A
    My Bloody Valentine: Loveless
    The Velvet Underground & Nico
    Sufjan Stevens: Illinoise (best album of the decade thus far, by far)

    *EDIT*: Oh also, it's from October but still: American Primitive Vol. II. It's an album of late 19th - early 20th century folk music compiled by John Fahey before he passed. It's a haunting, 50 song collection and it's probably had the most rotations of any album since I purchased it. Beautiful, beautiful album/history lesson.

    No, I haven't. If you do, let me know what you think.

    I have a soft spot for "Harvest Moon," and sometimes feel it gets overlooked in his body of work. But I can see your point. I like both his earlier stuff and the more weathered later stuff.

    Well, let's see what's in the changer or in the adjacent pile:

    Stones, 12 x 5
    Modern Lovers
    Iggy and the Stooges, Fun House
    Robyn Hitchcock, Element of Light
    Eno, Before and After Science
    Guided By Voices, Mag Earwhig
    Some weird thing about black banjo players of the 1930s
    Ween, Pure Guava


    I like to change the pile every so often and I tend to grab things at random. My collection is large and I often forget I have something until it pops up this way.

    to this day I put Bad Religion's 'I wanna conquer the world' on repeat in the morning when i know a particularly challenging day is ahead.

    Started doing that before college exams, and that song has been with me from tape on walkman to CD on discman to MP3 on iPod. See no reason why it wont be with me with whatever technology outmodes my pod.

    Albums that I'll never put away for good no matter how my tastes change would definately be Jeff Buckley's "Grace", some of Oasis's albums (Standing on the Shoulders of Giants, The Masterplan, What's the Story), The Verve (Storm in Heaven)... I've gone through big phases of liking Blues records, different types of Brit rock (Ocean Color Scene, Stereophonics, JJ72, Placebo, Starsailor, Muse etc...), "classic" rock (GnR, The Who, the Pistols etc...) and Hiphop/rap (JayZ, Kanye, Nas, Gangstarr, The Streets, 50...). While I keep actively listening to all of them, sometimes some of them take a major backseat... haven't listened to any of my GnR records in ages. Used to be the biggest fan.

    Then I have a pretty huge classical collection, most notably a fairly extensive collection of violin repertoire. No matter how many different soloists I listen to, with new and fresh ideas about how works should be performed, I'm always drawn back to the good old playing of Itzhak Perlman. There are some records which I think define your personality and what inspires you that no matter what changes you go through, you're fundamentally hooked on for life.
