Hahaha you’re right. But it was like Sept or Oct. Close enough to the 80s?
Awesome pick out of nowhere. I think Open Casket is the g.o.a.t DM song considering why it was written. Spiritual Healing is my second favorite album of theirs.
I'm all for Symbolic
When Chuck got more progressive that song and album is probably my favorite from them later on. There's so many though. The Philosopher etc..
When people say Metallica evolved or whatever I find that nonsense. Death is the epitome of evolving but not losing intensity or integrity. Symbolic has awesome fucking vocals.
Hit other because I mistakenly thought The Wall was a 1980 album. I was about to blow my stack on TS. I double checked though. November 1979
Anyway, kept my other vote because out of any 80s album..off the top of my head Pretty Hate Machine has gotten the most mileage from me. Very important album as well. I’m surprised it wasn’t included.
haha i guess so. to me it has that raw 70s punk production aesthetic. I usually associate 80s stuff with like reverby drums
Metallica certainly evolved. Just look at the leap in songwriting in such a short time from Kill 'Em All to Ride The Lightning. I guess what people think of when they say Metallica evolved they probably point to the Black Album and then the two Loads.
As to Death. I'm happy to see there are other fans of Chuck on here. @Post 2 Decision and you being the first two I know of. I bet the metal fans on this board enjoy Death. The one thing that sticks out for me about Death and Chuck in particular was the fact that Chuck really was the first to enter uncharted territory when they released the two albums Spiritual Healing from 90 and Human a year later. Those two albums I feel laid the groundwork for what was the then the beginnings of the genre of Progressive Death Metal. He perfected it for me when Death released the The Sound of Perseverance in 1998. That is my favorite Death record and is one of the main reasons I decided to pick up a guitar. Chuck Schuldiner is a legend and losing him sucks. There will never be anyone like him again, someone who had it all and was extremely talented in each area. My favorite guitar player that I have ever listened to. You got me listening to Human right now and I forgot just how good this album was.
I love Nine Inch Nails and seen them live three times. As good as Pretty Hate Machine is for me I always felt it copied the style of Skinny Puppy a bit too much. I have to say though that Trent Reznor came in to his own when The Downward Spiral was released. That album is what made me a fan of Nine Inch Nails and Treznor plus seeing them live for the first time in 2006. Best live production I've seen from any band. But yeah man you do have good taste in music
Accept - Balls To The Wall
Yeah what I meant with Metallica I guess was devolve or change entirely. They certainly evolved in the 80's and AJFA was such a crushing album I'm not sure where else they could go from there. One definitely put them on the map to a broader audience.
Out of all the metal guitar players/vocalist, Chuck imo was the best at his craft. He's a better guitarist than both James and Mustaine. Voice of the Soul is one of my favorite instrumentals ever. What an underrated musician that I never got to see live.
Finally saw NIN in October. I was blown away. More than I expected. Everything was so much harder and faster than on the records. Some songs that I didn’t think could be played live effectively with a band like The Great Destroyer, just killed it. Trent sounded great and had seemed re-energized after I thought he sounded weary on The actual studio recordings of The Slip and Hesitation Marks. He sounded like it was the 90s. Atticus Ross also brought a great presence as seemingly an equal in NIN to Trent now. Probably the best show I’ve seen in years and I go to a lot of shows. A Perfect Circle had just played a good show before them and NIN completely blew them out of the water.
The 80's was just too good a decade to really pick one imo.
I'd be biased and go for a Metal record, but narrowing it down to just one out of the many great ones would be extremely hard.
Then just do what I did and list a bunch
Close call for me between Queen: A Kind of Magic and Ozzy Osbourne: The Ultimate Sin.
For the sake of the poll I voted Daydream Nation, bc I believe that album had an everlasting effect on music, and influenced many artists within my favorite genres of music.
I could have voted Thriller, for different reasons.
If I were voting Other and just on personal preference, Remission by Skinny Puppy.
faith no more The Real Thing should be on there.
Doolittle by the Pixies
Strangeways Here We Come by the Smiths
Operation: Mindcrime by Queensrÿche
Although I think Bryne might have surpassed it with My Life In The Bush of Ghosts with Eno...
It's possible. I definitely view them as twin albums, albeit one is even more experimental. Help Me Somebody and The Jezebel Spirit are two of my favourite Byrne songs.
The Catherine Wheel is underrated as well.
