What was the first album you listened to in its entirety from start to finish?
AKA what album set you on your course than landed you here tonight?
Smoked weed for the first time when I was 13 to this album, was a skimpy j i shared with a friend but it was a borderline religious experience.
I probably first listened to this when I was 8. Still wasn't really into music until I was about 11, when I decided The Beatles were all I was going to listen to three years.
This is the first CD I bought for myself and the first CD I listened to fully by my choice. This is when I started moving away from pop punk to hardcore punk.
Ribbed and everything prior ended up being my favorite stuff by them even though The War On Errorism was my first. Don't get me wrong, I love all their stuff but I like it old stuff the most.
to be honest all the way through probbaly dis
Listened to this when it came out cause I enjoyed the singles, late 2012 and came to /mu/ asking for more hip hop albums like it
and eventually decided I like it here and I started to branch out and listen to genres other than rap.
I dont listen to japanese songs that much, but yeah i couldnt stop litening to her voice
Didn't care about music taste until this album. Found on some chill-out station on Pandora, ended up listening to the whole thing. Looked at its Wikipedia page, and saw its genre was Trip Hop. Idk what that was at the time, looked it up, andddd interest in music
It was either this or one of the other vinyls my mum and dad had lying around. Used to listen to them endlessly before our record player died.
Would listen to it everyday until I broke the tape.
desu I'm 18 so I was like 15 at the time.
so yeah I was pretty young
but before this I only ever listened to singles and I'm sure that when we had road trips when I was younger, we didnt listen to the entire album or it was like, greatest hits and stuff.
Man, Holy Wood was one of my first too, I used to be the biggest Manson fanboy. I remember buying a CD copy of Antichrist Superstar during my lunch break in highschool & keeping it on the corner of my desk during class for the rest of the day, just so I could show people how edgy I was. The black painted nails, straightened hair & fingerless gloves didn't help much either. Those were some dark fuckin' times.
I'm 90% sure it's this. The other 10% says it's >>61570900
I went to Christian school
(Pic related is a damn good band, I don't care what you memesters say)
Tiesto - just be. Which got me into dance music, then went to shoegaze and ambient, then to post rock and eventually ended up discovering a shit ton of great artists. Thanks Tiesto. You used to be based as fuck.
im seeing some good taste in here anons
liking the honesty as well
I remember in like 5th grade or some shit the cool kids would bring this in and we would listen to it every day in after school
Disturbed was the first band I truly loved and Nu-Metal was the first genre I was properly into.
Yes, I admit, I had shit taste when I was 13.
I was 8 and remember liking the closer because it had the word fuck in it and the song was catchy. But the album was so raw, hard, and even had its soft bits; still recall being blown away by this genre called industrial. Fast forward almost 22 years and I am still a huge fan, have all of the Nine Inch Nails catalogue and look forward to this years new release and your.
>tfw never had an edgy phase
>was always a whiny glass-jawed fag
I guess technically the first album I listened to all the way through was M
Ludacris' red light district but I was way too young to be critical of it or have it impact me in any sort of way.
This masterpiece right here. My parents made me put head phones on after the second or third repeat of the album. I would litterally sit and listen to it the entire day.
my hip hop phase is something i definitely don't regret going through. i still love this album.
This was actually my first CD and I loved it.
I honestly think it was this, I had it on cassette and listened to it on a coach on a school trip when I was like 10. Or it might have Daft Punk - Discovery when it came our in 2001.
This might be it, but I remember putting pic related on my stereo (dad had a CD) around the same time I was getting into Green Day
here's the first album I ever physically purchased. It was back at Tower Records. Ah...
This was the first album I ever owned. Must have been like 6 or 7.
I lived a rather sheltered life growing up. So the first time I heard this, I was genuinely taken back. I didn't realise an album could have non-single tracks that weren't complete shit.
Obviously my tastes have changed since then. But at the time, this was absolutely massive for me.
Maybe not strictly speaking, but it's the first one I remember, and definitely the first one I listened to in full repeatedly.
Bought this on cassette when I was 8 or 9 years old.
stole this cd from my dad when i was like 6 or 7
Came to /mu/, listened to this
Cannot remember, my parents used to have CDs and cassettes that we'd listen to on long car journeys, so probably whatever they were listening to at the time. Maybe REM automatic for the people.
I'm not counting stuff I heard just by being around my parents, so this probably. I got it in one of those CD catalog things when I was like 9.
Yeah I have no idea why I got into it.
I only listened to it once.
I listen to this even before I knew about the movie.
I have no idea since my parents had a shitload of CD's and I sat in front of the stereo for hours on end as a child.
These are some that I remember the most vividly though
>Era - Era
>Scorpions - Love at First Sting
>AC DC - For Those about to Rock
>Black Sabbath - Masters of Reality
>Iron Maiden - Powerslave
>Bon Jovi - Keep the Faith
Come to think about it, I'm one of the rare kids in my neighbourhood that didn't hate their parents' taste in music.
This, probably. My parents listened to music a lot so this probably isn't technically my first album, but this is the first one I have distinct memories of listening to.
It's the first album I can remember listening to start to finish there might be others though.
no joke my mom bought me this when i was 9 thinking it was christian rap
If we're not counting parents' music, then here's my first own album ever.
Here's a blogpost for your benefit
>roaming around flea market with dad at 6 or 7 yo.
>see album with cool castle picture on the cover
>i'm a child so i want it without any other reasoning
>ask dad to buy it
>asks what it is
>"dunno dad bro, but it's cool cause there's a castle"
>he buys it for me anyway
>put the cd in the stereo
>turns out it's atmospheric black metal
>eventually grow into it
>mom hates me for blaring it in the living room in the middle of the day
And I still listen to Summoning to this day.
i feel ya brother
Definitely Origin of Symmetry
After listening to top40 radio songs religiously for several years, Space Dementia and Citizen Erased fucking blew my mind off
Went to see them live shortly afterwards and now im still a pleb but at least I know a lot of music
If i'm going to be honest,
I wasn't allowed to listen to anything but Christian Rock Radio until I was eighteen, and occasionally there was the random pop hit blasting from some storefront speakers. It was the very first album I got-no research, no rec-and listened to it on a borrowed pair of headphones.
It sounds cheesy but I never thought of music as anything more than a religious gospel platform-something to listen when you want to get hyped for sunday mass, and I was very gladly removed from that funk with this album.
tldr : Music, to me or you, is better than what it could be
I went through several phases while growing where I mainly only listened to one genre at a time. However nowdays I listen to a variety of stuff simultaneously. My timeline from ages 8 to 16 went something like pop-punk>nu-metal>post-hardcore>metalcore>deathcore>idm>ambient>post-punk>shoegaze>black metal.
>mum listens to full albums
I remember singing along with her when I was around 6-7. Heard a ton of dad/momrock albums through her.
My dad was into Motown compilations and old french pop. His fave was the Temptations.
>mfw papa ended up being rolling stone
That song still gets me all kind of fucked up tbqh senpai
I was 9 when I got this album. Had no idea what the lyrics meant, but I think it set me on course.
Same here. My old man used to be really into Sabbath and Deep Purple, and I basically grew up on their music, eventually inheriting his entire vinyl collection when he passed. Now they're amongst my favorite bands as well.
When I was 10 I found my dad's burned disc with tons of music for his DJing. This album was on there.
At 10 I thought it was great, now I'm nearly 21 and, well, yeah.
I'm planning on seeing them if only because this is the last tour and they're calling it quits afterwards. Also, 3 out of 4 original members ain't that bad. Sabbath certainly has had worse lineups.
Listened to nothing but popular Punk-rock and the most generic Electronic songs before this.
Still in my top 10.
Oh, so I'm not the only italian here.
Pic related btw, still my favorite artist and one of my favorite album
Same here. Used to think it was a good album and liked Dance, Dance and Sugar, We're Going Down a lot but now as far as I'm concerned every track is goat. Literally not a dull moment on the album
So I went to /mu/ and found this
did people seriously not listen to any music appropriate for children as full albums?
