Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath (you know, the one that birthed heavy metal)

Joe Bonamassa - Live from the Royal Albert Hall

...could add many, many more. Been collecting music since the 60's and there are, literally, hundreds of albums that I've had on vinyl, then 8 track, then cassette, then CD, now digital. Well, not a lot of 8 tracks, players ate them too easily. I consider them all essential or I wouldn't have bought them in the first place, let alone replaced them over and over...

Well, I can Write a list today.. twil be different tomorrow..

Radiohead in rainbows
Queen night at the opera
Opeth pale communion
Mastodon crack the skye
Coheed and Cambria - Good Apollo Vol 1

NIN- fragile

This is silly... lol.

I agree with pretty much all the previous albums as well.

At this point there's far too much good stuff out there, really just depends on mood.. I pray I'll never have to actually narrow it down and make a "desert island " choice ... perks of digital media!

As a side note if you guys like modern jazz with hip hop roots, Badbadnotgood is where it's at! Couple young fellows from Toronto..

This one is usually not appreciated unless you're a musician but
Shawn lane.. powers of ten.
People focus on his speed and that's a shame because there is beauty on that album.
