The album that got me interested in Krautrock... and a heavier interest in progressive music in general. I had heard Pink Floyd like so many others and do dig hard, but they never inspired me to seek out similar music. This is what really pushed me into the genre. Before it, the bulk of my collection was metal. I'm not closeminded, but I have my preferences, and progressive now makes up an almost equal bulk.

For me it was the Beatles' Revolver. I checked it out of the library a year or two ago, and it a) made me a hardcore Beatles fan, b) made me rediscover the Beach Boys, and c) made me explore the Doors, the Kinks, the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, and a lot of other '60s music.

Sonic Youth - Daydream Nation
Minutemen - Double Nickels on the Dime
Pixies - Surfer Rosa

At 15, I heard these albums, and they dissolved my whole 'music needs to be fast' mindset, and opened my mind to a whole new world of music. Before this I was into Black Flag, Minor Threat (not Fugazi back then), Bad Brains, Bad Religion, Dead Kennedys and even some ska punk. Yeah, ska punk! What an idiot! I still enjoy those hardcore bands to varying degrees to this day.

This album changed my music taste in many ways.
It taught me that listening to sad, depressing music can be a beautiful and immersive experience. It helped knock me out of the mostly rock, metal and punk phase I was in before I heard them. It turned me into a Cure obsessive. It opened my mind to all genres of music. It started my obsession with reverb and delay-heavy walls of sound.

Great choice zero!

For me:


Great music comes in many guises and although I was into Electronic bands like Tangerine Dream years before, this album showed me how electronic music was as exciting, experimental and daring as rock music was supposed to be.

Washing Machine's a great record. I tend to like their 80s music the best, but Washing Machine may be my favourite post-80s. Plus, it has The Diamond Sea. What a song!

ikr? that song is amazing and has such good lyrics too.

but my fav from that record is No Queen Blues, The intro in that song is so discordant yet has a nice groove and it sets the perfect tone for when the song actually starts.

Frank Zappa- Shut Up and Play Your Guitar
That album changed the way I go at leads. The phrasing just changed everything
