  • Albums of significant importance

    14 Apr 2007, 16:59 by Vami

    Rip-off from my friend's journal ;)

    So here are the albums which I find most important for me, in shaping my listening habits.

    1. Best of Van Halen, Volume 1

    This album was the very first one in my rock collection. I bought it somewhere around 1998-99, directed toward it by two songs: When It's Love and Can't Stop Lovin' You. Of course, this is a compilation not a proper album, but nevermind. This was the very first rock record which was truly very important for me. I used to know every song and every note off that. Right now I find myself listening to it less, but it will always have a place in my heart. What an amazing record. The guitar solos, the riffs, the overdubs, great rhythm, amazing vocals and this little thing that make a record truly rock: charisma and machismo. It's all here. The essence.

    2. Hysteria

    OK, after putting the Van Halen compilation back on shelf, I found myself loving Def Leppard. In reality, the first album of the Sheffield band in my library was Vault
  • My top artists of the year 2005

    I've already presented the best tracks, so now it's the artists' turn.

    8, 9 & 10. Black Sabbath, Whitesnake, Czesław Niemen

    Black Sabbath and Czesław Niemen got so high in my charts because of my alphabetical listening lately. Nevertheless, Niemen is THE voice of Polish music and everyone should be familiar with his tunes. Black Sabbath are THE legend of metal and so they recorded an awful lot of great stuff. Well the only band who didn't need any handicaps here is WHITESNAKE. David Coverdale and the guys created what I was looking for in rock and in music generally. People claim that Radiohead is so emotional. I'm telling you, there is NOTHING more emotional in music than Starkers In Tokyo. Simple as that. Voice + acoustic guitar. WHAT A VOICE I should add...

    7. Hetman

    Funny situation here. I mostly listened to Christmas carols sung by them... They're a hard rock / heavy metal band generally, but they made such recording. And so it was Christmas time and they got so high... Recommended.
