    Goo Goo Dolls - Dizzy Up The Girl


    Goo Goo Dolls - Let Love In


    Linkin Park - Hybrid Theory


    10 Years - Division


    There's a couple more out there. But these ones are the main ones
    I know every word for and were a solace in a lot of formative
    periods of my life.

    Yes, yes, judge me for the Linkin Park.

    For each album- or whichever you want to comment on- what is your general "feel" on each album? What emotions, themes or sounds do you relate to/enjoy about them? Any specific memories attached to them?

    Usually albums and particular songs are attributed to poignant memories or
    affiliated emotions relating to that memory. Here goes.

    Goo Goo Dolls - Dizzy
    This one screams of my youth. The first song I'd heard from this band and fell
    in love with is entitled "Name", which actually isn't present on this album.
    We also have "Iris" on this one, another favorite and largely this band's
    biggest hit.

    The memory in question, if I close my eyes, is being 7 years old in
    the back of a car in Tucson during the summer. It's baking hot, and
    I smell cigarettes - dad's smoking while driving - and I remember thinking
    about soccer while driving by an empty field.
    Goo Goo Dolls - Let Love In
    This one was a much-anticipated album for me. "Let Love In" really emulates
    a lot of my feelings toward the world, as well as "Stay With You" being a
    solid mainstay. It's come to my attention I didn't mention their Gutterflower
    album which was also important, but let's delve into the memory on this one.

    It's a closing cleaning session at the fast food place I used to work at.
    My parents owned the place, but I'd managed to get my two best
    friends hired on. We're mopping the floor, washing trays, I'm singing at
    the top of my lungs and all I smell is salad oil and onions.
    Linkin Park - Hybrid Theory
    This entire album is one I know by heart. It was released in the crux of my
    teenage years, and being clinically depressed, I could easily relate to every
    single song on it.

    In front of a grocery store in their parking lot, there's a small carnival.
    I'd just dyed my hair pink, I'd been wearing a pair of jeans I self-stylized
    with written song lyrics in permanent marker. My then-boyfriend is there,
    and we screamed as we rode the 'hammer' ride together. This was a week
    before he moved away to college.

    10 Years - Division
    There's another album with this one I used to listen to in tandem together during
    the same period of time, actually. The album is Ashes Divide - Keep Telling Myself
    It's Alright
    .

    The time is about 2006. I'm playing World of Warcraft's Burning Crusade expansion,
    working my way through the final levels to 70 as a human warlock. I can recall
    the area I'm in, killing things, letting my mind wander, but hell if I can tell you
    what I was thinking of at the time. I was in my early 20s. The world was my
    oyster, after all.

    ------------------

    Music is pretty inherent to everything I do, iconic to a lot of things in my life.
    Likening it to memories is fun for me, and when I want to lose myself to those times,
    I re-listen.

    That was beautiful; thank you for answering so thoughtfully. Music plays an important place in my life too and I'm always interested in what music people like and what lies beneath it. Also I don't think anybody is gonna tease you about liking Linkin park after that message! Do you play any music yourself?

    I used to, actually. I self-taught myself piano and for quite a few years was an avid choir member, but I left behind the singing life when our high school choir director gave me hinky vibes. Couldn't quite put my finger on it. That's Ni at work for you.

    Instead, I opted for acting, which I enjoyed much more thoroughly.

    Thank you for this thread, too. Made me flash back a bit and smile.

    Because I listen to music online, I don't typically listen to it in albums. Plus, in every album there's usually better and worse songs, so really I'd wanna group all the songs I'd like most together.

    Save Rock and Roll by Fall Out Boy was really their greatest album though. Think I loved almost everything on that one. Haven't listened in a while, but I do love it.

    If I were to describe the vibe, it'd be "washed-up losers trying to reclaim their glory days", but that's pretty obvious from the videos I think. :p

    What about Lifts Your Skinny Fists?



    I love how eclectic your music tastes are. I also have some time for Cattle Decapitation :)

    I have dozens of favourite albums, but I think it's pretty safe to say that My Bloody Valentine's Loveless (1991) is at the very top. The reason? Well, it's just the greatest fucking album.

    It's not available in full on YT. The opener:



    The closer:



    The ballad:

    @Ren :3 GY!BE is my favourite band, :D Of course Lifts your Skinny Fists is great. :3 Although it is their second most recent, it was F sharp infinity that awed my very being. (as when i heard it i had a lot of enjoyable synchros prior.)

    I don't think i had the chance to listen to their most recent. :D i will in the next few weeks.
