It's all about Van Halen for me.......

Van Halen 1 and Fair Warning are 2 of the best rock records of all time.

I like ZBB their music is different kinda and their sound is exclusive to them.
For my money though its gotta be Motley Crue-Shout at the Devil. They just completely rocked that album they put a lot into it and it shows in the quality of the work from the instruments and Mick's solos to Vince's vocals they did it all to the best of their ability

I'm just going to go with my Top 10 albums, because it can be inferred that, if they made one of my Top 10 favorite albums, they are no worse than being one of my Top 20 artists.

1.) Metallica S&M

-I might get flamed for this choice, but I've had a tremendous appreciation for symphony my entire life. To this day, when I get home from work, I put on the Classical channel on TV and that's what I go to sleep to. Anyway, when you combine that with one of your top five favorite bands, the effect is amazing. It doesn't hurt that Hetfield was at the top of his game for that one, and I've seen Metallica live at least ten times, so...

2.) Type O Negative October Rust

-Their music is really more complicated than people want to give them credit for.

3.) The Cult Sonic Temple

-"Soul Asylum," is an incredible song. It's like they took everything that was great about Glam Metal and rolled it up into one song. This is also one of the only albums where I can't skip a song...ever. It's almost like you're reaching over...almost there...and..."No, can't do it." I've almost skipped, "Automatic Blues," a few times, but that's more due to the merits of, "Soldier Blue," than lack thereof from the former.

4.) Kansas Leftoverture

-"The Wall," do I really have to say anything else? It's outside my genre, but, oh well.

5.) Pantera Vulgar Display of Power

-This album will rip your soul straight out of your body.

6.) Nada Surf Let Go

-Wonderful lyrics from beginning to end. It could be spoken word and it would have made the list. Not really, but...

7.) Green Day American Idiot

8.) Pearl Jam Ten

9.) Metallica Ride the Lightning

10.) Faith No More The Real Thing

I love the label Nomad wave. It is an independent label from Montreal. Its music is electronic dance music with many influence of the Rock in the structure. My favorite band is San Isidro. And my favorite single of him is Pleiadian Prophecy...


San Isidro - Antarctic water on America

San Isidro - Recuerdos de otras vidas

My favorite group of musicians have more hits than The Beach Boys, The Rolling Stones, Elvis, and The Beatles combined.

They called themselves,
The Funk Brothers.

The Beatles are my favourite band, and my favourite album is "Dark Adapted Eye" by Danielle Dax from 1988. She also did a funky dance cover of The Beatles classic "Tomorrow Never Knows" in 1990.
