A Brief History Of Taste

My musical journey seems to be radically different to most that I've seen, so here are some defining albums (one per band) for my taste in list form. There are, of course, quite a few here that I don't listen to anymore.

Generally chronological.

1. .
2.
3. Muse - Absolution
4. Frank Zappa - Apostrophe (')
5. Maxïmo Park - Our Earthly Pleasures

Symphonic Metal Done Differently

Nightwish, Dimmu Borgir, Septicflesh and their respective clones are not welcome here. The title is a bit misleading since none of these albums are 'symphonic metal' per se, but they're metal with symphonic/orchestra elements added in a way that's unconventional, or at least as far as I know. Suggestions welcome.

1. Apocalyptica - Plays Metallica By Four Cellos
2. Aquilus - Griseus
3. Blind Guardian - At the Edge of Time
4. Blood Thirsty - Sanguine River Absolution
5. Igorrr - Hallelujah

Albums Named After Emmure Guitar Tabs

I'm thinking about adding Sirenia - At Sixes and Sevens, but that might be closer to black metal than Emmure.

1. Porcupine Tree - Nil Recurring
2. Ayreon - 01011001
3. Shining (NOR) - One One One
4. Orphaned Land - All is One

2. Sonata Arctica
3. Stryper

Albums Named After The Reaction I Had The First Time I Listened To Them

Just to be clear, my opinion of many of these albums has changed since the first time I heard them. And I get that some other famous titles would be funny to put here, but I'm going to spoil the fun and say I want to at least be truthful.

1. Anathema - A Fine Day to Exit
2. Austrian Death Machine - Total Brutal
3. Clutch - Pure Rock Fury
4. Devin Townsend - Addicted
5. Divinefire - Farewell
