    Fuck burning churches, lets burn down schools and
    Robbed this idea from another forum.
    This is your chance to make the other members aware of stunning, monumental albums (of any genre) that you would consider mandatory listening.

    This is the format, stick to it:

    Code:
    [img]cover[/img] 
    
    [b]Artist:[/b] 
    [b]Album:[/b] 
    [b]Year:[/b] 
    [b]Genre:[/b] 
    [b]Recommended If You Like:[/b] 
    [b]Sample Song:[/b]
    
    The sample song should be a youtube link if possible, and only one per album please. :)

    One album per post, and try to space out your posts so it doesn't just turn into a list of every single album you've ever owned.
    Try to keep it to one post per day.

    That Karnivool stuff is actually really good,
    thanks! really loving "Shutterspeed"

    Also, could we keep it to one example song per album please? just for the sake of tidyness and to give all posts an equal footing.
    cheers.
