Every album/ep by Ben Folds, with and without the Five :slight_smile:
Bad Religion - The Empire Strikes First
The Get Up Kids (self-titled)
System of a Down - Steal This Album!

There are others but these are all I can think of at the moment - I’m horrible with artist/album/song names, and especially getting the trio all right at the same time :slight_smile:

I’ll have to agree that Pink Floyd’s “The Wall” is on my list too.
But it doesn’t begin to make sense unless you watch the movie of the same name (and then it makes even less sense:ahh: )… lol

Also, another album that rocks my world is “Hellbilly Deluxe”, and the remix of all those songs “American Made Music To Strip By” by Rob Zombie
Gotta love those songs - Dragula, Living Dead Girl, Demonoid Phenomonon among others. Great stuff.:smiley:

Oops… Double post. Guess you can’t edit, after a few days.

Anyways, I just remembered another album that rocked my world - sort of.

I suck at math. But, when I was taking my Pre-Algebra, and Algebra classes in College, I would hog two computers and use one for the software (they were computer based math classes) and one computer for the listening of a CD. It seemed that the days I had my CD to listen to was the days I understood more of the software and (even more importantly) the algebraic procedures.

Anyways, the CD I listened to during those times was:
Wyclef Jean and the Refugee Allstars - The Carnival.

I doubt if it was the music or words that made learning easier for me on those days, maybe it was just that I was in a more relaxed environment, listening to some tunes and going at my own pace with the studies…

Limp Bizkit: Results May Vary
311: From Chaos

I think it’s funny that you chose the word “album” instead of CD but since you asked about albums, I would have to say **Cream - Disraeli Gears ** since it introduced me to Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker and Jack Bruce - if you haven’t heard it, ask a mentor to dig it out of their LP collection. Harry Chapin - all of his albums were wonderful - so much so that I named my children after a song of his… Woodstock 1 - I had to sneak into my sister’s bedroom to listen to this when she wasn’t home because it wasn’t appropriate for me to listen to! Jesus Christ Superstar - Broadway show version - my first real explanation of the Easter story. **Carole King’s Tapestry ** and **Jim Croce’s Time in a Bottle ** - both were worn out because I moved during high school and listened to these for hours on end until I made some friends.

One I just got recently: The America EP, by Will Hoge. Buy it at or download it from iTunes (only $5!). It’s very powerful… you won’t regret it. And if you like it, check out the rest of Will’s stuff… it’s all awesome.

The ones that rocked my world are also the ones that give me the most inspiration.(theres no order)

Frank Zappa and The Mothers of Invention Freak Out! (infact lyrics from that album are in my sig)

Frank Zappa “himself”- Joes Garage Act 1,2,&3

Every Radiohead album

Omega Tribe Make Tea Not War

Rudimentary Peni “deathchurch” and “Cacophony”(a 40 minute 30 track lp about writer H.P. Lovecraft)

Thats all i can put becuase if i get started you’ll be doing a lot of reading! :smiley:
