What's the most memorable album for you from your high school graduation year? For me, it was easily the Red Album by Baroness. 2007, listening to "Rays on Pinion" with the windows down, thinking I owned the road. Feel free to share the ones that were memorable to you.

On that year I discovered Thick as a Brick by Jethro Tull wich was freaking amazing. For album released the same year, I would go with either 10 000 Days by Tool or Motorhead's Inferno. I don't remember when I finished highschool. It's all a bit blurry.

Back in 2009? Kind of a tough call since I listened more to thrash classics and didn't really follow new albums back then... It was probably Hordes of Chaos by Kreator anyways

If I take a look at albums that were released in that year:
- In a negative way: Tristania's Ashes. I anticipated that album so badly and was so disappointed with it when it was released.

- In a positive way: Lacrimosa's Lichtgestalt. Probably the best album from that year and I remember some other albums being released, but Lichtgestalt was one of the albums I listened through and through when it was released and is nowadays still one of album that are very dear to me.

When I think of music and grad year, I remember that damn Black Eyed Peas "I Gotta Feeling", it was played at graduation, formal, every after formal party. It seemed that everywhere I went some group of jock loving princess low IQ overly obsessed with appearance daddy's girls (I'm sure you know the type) had turned the bass to 11 and were blasting it in your face whether you liked it or not.

2008, let's see. Must've been "Pulver" by Lifelover, even though that one was released a couple of years before my graduation. I played the shit out of that album and it also kinda changed me. So much happened at the same time, not only my graduation but I bought the album, with no idea what it really was. I saw a bad ass album cover and that one of the songs was named "M/S Salmonella", a play on the name "M/S Amorella" which is the boat me and my friends always take when we go on our cruises. Strangely enough, the cruise we took right after I bought the album changed my life forever since I met this girl and she would seem to have a huge impact on my life thereafter...

Wow, I was listening to:

Dio - Last In Line
Grim Reaper - See You In Hell
Iron Maiden - Powerslave
Judas Priest - Defenders of the Faith
Metallica - Ride the Lighting
Queensryche - Warning
Ratt - Out of the Cellar
Saxon - Crusader
Yngwie Malmsteen - Rising Force

And, they're all pretty damn memorable; but, I have to say I was really into Ratt my senior year (1984). The music was good and the chicks liked them too. So, it was a win-win.

WOW! An old guy like me! I graduated in 1983, I was listening to lots of AC/DC, Sabbath, Ozzy... but the album of '83 was Def Leppards Pyromania.
Me and my buddies played that cassette to death while cruising weekends.
After grad, got into Maiden, Dio, Priest, etc. No hair metal for me.

Well met sir! May I say you have great taste in music! I've been listening to Sabbath since 77' and they are my favorite band. I really got into AC/DC in the late 70's and played the hell out of Back In Black; but, have always preferred the Bon Scott era. I also played the shit out of the first 2 Ozzy albums in the early 80's. I have to admit that I did listen to some Hair-Metal, as it was everywhere. Throughout the 80's, I listened to Heavy-Metal and Thrash at least 95% of the time. Only from time to time would I listen to Hard-Rock or Hair-Metal. The Hard-Rock has held up well over the years the Hair-Metal not so much.

Let's see. Spring 2003, when I graduated, the album I was listening to most that had come out that same year was Damnation by Opeth. The other albums I was obsessing over had come out in 2002 or were by Pain of Salvation... or in the case of Remedy Lane, both.

How can you remember all that? I'm 21 and I can't distinguish one year from another. Probably was listening to Strapping Young Lad and the album City but I can't tell really.

Lemme see here, 2005...

2005 wasn't really a memorable year for me as far as albums go. City by Strapping Young Lad and that's about it. I remember being pretty let down by Ghost Reveries, and indeed that was the year I kinda stopped listening to Opeth.

Whereas the following year, five of my all-time favorite albums were released. Go figure.

That is a difficult question but here is a list of them (I graduated last summer, so there are some recent albums in here):

Blind Guardian - Nightfall in Middle Earth, Night at the Opera
Amorphis - Eclipse, Silent Waters, Skyforger, Beginning of Times (all four of Tomi Joutsen releases so far)
Seventh Wonder - The Great Escape, Mercy Falls
Genesis - Trespass
Pain of Salvation - BE
Katatonia - Dance of December Souls, Last Fair Deal Gone Down
Abigail's Ghost - Selling insincerity
Meshuggah - Koloss, Destroy Erase Improve
The Smiths - Louder Than Bombs, Meat is Murder
Depeche Mode - Music for the Masses
Sylvan - Sceneries
Anathema - Weather Systems
Vangelis - Opera Sauvage
Jeff Buckley - Grace

I think that should do...


Either you spent a long time in HS or you missed the point. I listened to the Smiths and Depeche Mode albums while I was in HS before you were born.

I was into death metal and thrash and slightly dabbing into progressive metal in 1990. Pro's and Con's:

Pros's : Seeing Rush live on Presto Tour that summer; Listening to Spiritual Healing 1236 times; Being absolutely blown away by Act III and Left Hand Path

Con's : What the fuck kind of Maiden album is this? ; More radio airplay for Empire than any other metal cd EVER; Watching Alice In Chains getting shit thrown at them and booed off the stage on Clash Of Titans tour, how fucking classless and embarrassing.
