My Favourite Rock And Metal Albums (No particular order)

S. Wright
 
Lateralus

"I was never as stunned by anything as much as Keenan's voice on those buzzing guitars, with an atmosphere you can cut with a blunt blade."
No Name Face
No Name Face
"The finest pop-rock album of all time. With no exceptions. A truly exceptional mix of hard and soft rock songs."
Jar Of Flies/Sap
Jar Of Flies/Sap
"I bought this on a Christmas Eve...it frightened me, and soothed me at the same time. Nothing supassed that feeling since."
In Utero
In Utero
"Definatly Nirvana's outstanding moment above all. Was''All Apologies'' a suicide note? Maybe, but he couldn't have put it better if he'd felt like trying."
Yield

"Many see this is Pearl Jam's worst...but I see it as their best...A fine mix of meaningful songs, both chilling and rousing, it's just so very welcoming."
Unified Theory
Unified Theory
"The vast majority of people in the world are unfortunate enough to have not heard this. Beautiful, pleasent, uplifting rock music, with an 'aqua' feel to it."
13 Ways To Bleed On Stage
13 Ways To Bleed On Stage
"I honestly don't know why I love this so much. Maybe it's because it's the most consitently disturbing and honest album I've heard in years. Forget KoRn.....Under appreciated to say the least."
Made In Heaven
Made In Heaven
"It's funny what tragedy does...Queen's best, and inevitably most human work came when it was all over. Rest In Peace Frederick Bulsara."
Human Clay
Human Clay
"This is a classic that is over-looked by small minded critics and fools who point ridiculous fingers of accusal. Fine hard rock album with lighter tones. A highly talented band."
Mutter
Mutter
"Sure they're German. Sure they might be mad. But the difference between R+ and the rest on the market, is that R+ have variety and beauty that makes language no longer a barrier."
Automatic for the People
Automatic for the People
"R.E.M.'s master-work. There so much to enjoy from this album. It's sad and somber (The legendary, Everybody Hurts) but surprisingly uplifting (Nightswimming). An all time classic."
The Doors
The Doors
"Just mind-boggling. Forget Will Young's tacky version of 'Light My Fire' the original can't be beaten. The organ, guitar mix persued by Jim Morrison's warm and eager vocal and lyrics will always stick"
Alice in Chains
Alice in Chains
"Deeply moving. They rock hard (Again) and they scare you to death with some of the greatest ballads of all time (Over Now). The best heavy metal band ever."
Blind Melon
Blind Melon
"At the time of release, this defied all odds...a far cry from the angst driven hard rock filling the charts, Blind Melon were soothing and playful. And utterly brilliant."
August & Everything After
August & Everything After
"Counting Crows debut album could not be any better and consists of 10 songs that are soothing but are so, so desperate. I call this 'silently screaming'..."
Blackwater Park
Blackwater Park
"Incredible, and not just the greatest black metal album I've heard, but the greatest metal album too."
