Think of 15 albums that had such a profound effect on you they changed your life or the way you looked at it. They sucked you in and took you over for days, weeks, months, years. These are the albums that you can use to identify time, places, people, emotions. These are the albums that no matter what they were thought of musically shaped your world.

1: AFI- Sing the Sorrow.

This album still means alot to me, sometimes i listen to it and shiver because of the emotion it used to stir in me.

2: Sufjan Stevens- Illinoise

I loved songs from this album in highschool before i even knew who sufjan stevens was... and i'm seeing him tomorrow live!!!

3. Dashboard Confessional- A Mark, A Mission, A Brand, A Scar.

Everybody who's "cool" only likes their first album. well i like their second album. i think it is delicious, and it reminds me of every ex boyfriend, every ex hookup with only fond memories. that's a hard thing to do ;)

4. System of a Down- Toxicity

This cd is freaking awesome. even if it is classified as nu metal, or whatever it is you want to classify it as. it was named in rolling stones top albums of the decade, which definitly means something. i actually listened to this cd the other day with brett.

5. Stars- Set Yourself on Fire

This cd lifts me up with every melody and makes me want to dance and sing and smile :D i would suggest it to anybody, regardless of genre preferencesm purely because of how pretty it sounds. fave song: ageless beauty.

6. AFI: The Art of Drowning

Well I have the albums artworked tattooed on my back, so it obviously means something to me :P

7. The Avett Brothers- Emotionalism

The avett brothers have been my favorite band for a couple years now and i don't see them going anywhere. this album was what got me started.

8. The Avett Brothers- Four Thieves Gone

When I started to actually get into the avett brothers, this album stuck with me. the raw emotion of "colorshow" gets stuck in my head all the time. i count myself lucky that i got to see them sing it live twice! amazing!!!

9. Death Cab for Cutie- Plans

Again, everyone loves Transcatlanticism but I can't get enough of Plans. I was head over heals in love with "soul meets body" before I knew who played it. When I finally found out, I would play it over and over again in my car on the way to highschool.

10. Destiny's Child- Writings on the Wall.

Come on. These songs are classics, I have loved them since middle school.

11.  Devendra Banhart- Cripple Crow

Cripple crow is awesome because it reminds me of goofing around with all of my friends around a couple of guitars. i adore that about this cd, but it also goes into songs that i love even when i couldn't understand them (quadate luna!)

12. Blondie- Parallel Lines.

I love Blondie, and I will always love Blondie.

13. La Strada- New Home

ironically, i was trying to buy the tallest man on earths cd when i found this one for real cheap. i bought it becuase bretts band played with them once, and i liked their sound. i was completely in love. i listend to this album on repeat first to last every day for a month. and now i heard they are breaking up, and it genuinly broke my heart. :(

14.  Beppe Gambetta- 

I don't even know the album title. All i know is that he is an obscure brazillian flatpicking guitar picker that my dad loves. When I was heartbroken sophomore year and couldn't even look at a carrot without thinking of jay, i listened to this album and only this album for at least 3 weeks. It was on my itunes most played for two years before my computer crashed and i started over. I am obsessed with him, he is amazing, and his music is so pretty.

15 is hard. it's so hard to pick the last  album that made a huge impact on me. so i'll just put a bunch

Lady Gaga- The Fame, Vampire Weekend- Vampire Weekend, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs- It's Blitz, and Cat Stevens- Best of (the reason why i put best of is because if you want to sing out, sing out wasn't on an album after it was featured in harold and maude :P)
