I'm looking forward to taking an evening to explore some of the bands I haven't heard of from this thread :D

that's kind of what i was after with this thread. i think for a lot of us we share somewhat similar tastes in music; or at the very least have been exposed to many of the artists and styles of music represented.

personally i find that most of the music listed is something i will listen to, but to sit down and listen to an entire album by one artist vs listening to a mixture is something very different and that's where marked differences in listening tastes show up.

Kazyamamura said that music is subjective and that's true for so many things in life. i find it interesting to see what people like and how that fits in to who they are as a person. sometimes it's really surprising to find out what people enjoy.

The Flaming Lips - yoshimi battles the pink robots is an amazing album, better when listened as an album.

Odesza - Summers Gone

This. Very happy I found this album.

I like a lot of different genres but my favourite band, and has been since I first heard them about 12 years ago, is Opeth. Every one of their albums is phenomenal and can be heavy or mellow.

Right now I would choose:
Opeth - My Arms Your Hears

Also find trance to very nice to listen to and I always find I can enjoy this album:
Above and Beyond - Tri-State

Lots of great albums have at least one song that's weak. These ones don't:

Rancid - …and Out Come the Wolves
Headstones - Picture of Health
Matt Mays [HTML_REMOVED] El Torpedo - Terminal Romance
Metallica - Master of Puppets

I think what we've seen here is holy shit is everyone's taste in music different around these parts. I'm just glad that most modern video edits use the kind of music I listen to now rather than the headbanger stuff of years past. :D

I am pleasantly surprised by the lack of terrible suggestions. That said, for the first time in about 10 years, I am really enjoying heavier music again. But then what people find heavy is very relative.

I am also likely to be going home tonight and working through some of these albums, perhaps with some whisky.

Rancid - …and Out Come the Wolves

I like this album a lot, but for my own tastes, doesn't qualify as full album awesomeness. There are a couple of tracks I can skip past on this one.

Headstones - Picture of Health

Forgot about Headstones! Smile and Wave is more to my liking. "Cubically Contained" and "Pretty Little Death Song" ftw!!

A music album is a collection of songs, arranged by an artist or artists, and/or other collaborators. The term 'album' makes no reference to the format, hardware or otherwise, used to publish said collection.

Your point is invalid.

With a few exceptions (many mentioned here) a good music album is most typically a couple of good songs and a bunch of filler. That includes the ironically titled Sum 41 album "All Killer No Filler".

to me, … And Out Come The Wolves is a good album, but not as good as Life Wont Wait or 2000. but then again I don't think they released a bad song till Indestructible.

Just a speculative fiction. No cause for alarm.
