    Dr. Dog - Fate (2008). Anyone who's a fan of indie rock should definitely check this album out.

    Listening to so much metal, I don't know if there's ever been a guitar sound like what was on this album. Maybe it was bolstered by the production, but it just sounds amazing. The solos, riffs, best guitar music ever. 25 years later, it still holds up. The lyrics are fine, the other song elements are very strong, but the guitars stand tall. They're perfect, and the Tornado Of Souls feature solo is the best one ever, Hangar 18 has the best solo battle, Poison Was The Cure is a polished zenith for classic speed/thrash metal. Rust In Peace and Holy Wars are classic closer and openers, respectively. Lucretia is what groove metal should've been in the 80s and crushes Pantera post Cowboys From Hells. Take No Prisoners is awesome no-frills metal, Five Magics is a technical masterpiece, and Dawn Patrol was a necessary break from the punishing awesomeness. From start to finish, only 40 minutes, it's beautiful. This should've been the album to be referred as the peak of metal, best ever, all the shit praise that went to the overrated album Master Of Puppets. Master Of Puppets commercialized thrash metal but also tried to bring on a formula that Rust In Peace tweaked and presented in a better light. Epic, solo and guitar driven, strong lyrics, tested out grooving metal, Master Of Puppets disappointed in what it tried to do. It's Dances With Wolves to RIP's Goodfellas...

    My favourite album of all time is probably 'Kid A' by Radiohead, and if not that then it's either 'OK Computer' or 'In Rainbows'. Honourable mentions go to 'Agaetis Byrjun' by Sigur Ros, 'Dark Side Of The Moon' by Pink Floyd, 'The Sophtware Slump' by Grandaddy, 'Perfect From Now On' by Built to Spill, and 'This Is A Long Drive For Someone With Nothing To Think About' by Modest Mouse.

    I've listened to hundreds and thousands of great albums, but these are my absolute favourites, for various reasons. At the moment I'm really liking Velvet Underground/Lou Reed and Neil Young.

    Radiohead are pretty awesome. You should probably try listening to some of their full albums, their music is best enjoyed when listened to from start to end. Karma Police is on OK Computer (1997), which is one of their most critically acclaimed and musically diverse albums. Although if you're more used to listening to accessible/popular music, I would suggest starting off with The Bends (1995). Their more recent albums are great but more adventurous and progressive with less singles. Kid A (2000) marked a significant change in their sound, and the material on every album since is fresh. Amnesiac (2001) is darker and more atmospheric, and Hail To The Thief (2003) is a mixed bag containing some more rock-y and other more electronic songs. In Rainbows (2007) blends together classical influences and distorted sounds (which actually works perfectly) and The King of Limbs (2011) is a shorter album with modern electronic/dubstep influences. Radiohead have been one of the most critically acclaimed acts in modern rock music, and for very good reasons.

    Creep was their earliest single, appearing on their debut album Pablo Honey (1993). However, this is the only album by Radiohead that I would not recommend - it's by far their worst and most generic album.

    TL;DR - Start off with The Bends (1995), then OK Computer (1997), and from that point feel free to explore their newer stuff at your own pace in whatever order you like.

    EDIT: IIRC, I made my username Radiobread because I love Radiohead and I seem to remember I was busy eating a slice of toast or a sandwich, and that was what popped into my weird head...

    Started listening to track 1, was meh, hit track 2.
    Holy fuck!

    The ups and downs remind of opeth. You may have heard of them, they're a bit older.


    Edit, if you haven't heard of them I recommend giving them a fair listen.

    Really? I actually kinda hated Blurryface. And this is coming from someone who absolutely loved the band before Blurryface. It's just so much less creative and original as their other albums, and the music is pretty bad IMO.
