Blex's 25 Favorite Albums Of All Time

Listed below is my favorite 25 albums of all time. The 25 albums are the ones that I've enjoyed due to the emotional impact each one has had on me in relation to my life experiences to date.

It is important to note, music is a completely subjective experience. Each song, chord, note, lyric, etc...will emotionally effect each person in a different way. There is NO right or wrong type of music. There are really no bands that suck and no bands that are good. No one band can ever be better than another. Music is like ice cream, some people like one flavor and some people like another flavor. But, the general population will prefer a universal flavor such as vanilla. So, that is why fast-food places and restaurants generally only have one flavor because it appeals to the MOST people. Radio music is the same way, it's about MASS appeal to have the most people relate. As such, artistry, complexity, and creativity are sacrificed for profit and sales. It is my belief that eventually everybody should take time out of their lives to discover what type of music they enjoy. To me, it brings out the best of human kind when people dig deep into their soul and find what genre of music, songs, and bands strike them emotionally and bring out their artistic senses.

Since approximately 1994 to 1996, I stopped listening to music on the radio and stopped following popular music in about 1996. It is not a coincidence that around that time the internet became popular. It was at that time that I discovered what music I truly enjoy and what music I do not enjoy. Below are my favorite 25 albums. Subject to change as I get older every second. Feel free to give me your thoughts or your favorite 25 albums of all time. If I by chance get bored enough, I will include links and maybe a personal review about each band/album.
