    ..as though it were your first time hearing it again, what would it/they be?

    I remember the first time I heard the Red album by King Crimson and it utterly transformed me. I wish that I could totally erase my memory of hearing it and experience it all over again. The same goes for anything by Pink Floyd and Fleetwood Mac. Yes I'm old-fashioned- don't judge me!

    How about you?

    Trivium-Ascendancy since that album got me into metal and I remember sitting in with my head-phones air-drumming the whole thing in Year 8, was like achieving Nirvana!

    Similarly Avenged Sevenfold-City of Evil

    Homework by Daft Punk because it introduced me to a whole new genre of music. The songs are also beautifully diverse

    Pala by Friendly Fires because it makes me feel like it gives me visions of riding a bike through the woods on a tropical island Plus I associate the whole album with a good summer I had.

    The gallery by Dark tranquillity changed my musical preferences massively, the most influential album on me so I'd have to choose that.

    Golden Oldies Albums:

    Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon
    Camel -
    Mike Oldfield - Tubular Bells
    Kraftwerk - Autobahn

    Nice! A different choice of albums to what I would have gone for though - I'd go for Camel's self titled, Mike Oldfield's Hergest Ridge (I really enjoy TB but the second part really lets it down after the climax of the first whereas HR is consistently excellent I think) and The Man Machine or Computer World by Kraftwerk.

    For me, I'd also go for

    Wishbone Ash - Argus
    Genesis - The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway, Selling England By The Pound
    Electric Wizard - Dopethrone
    Fen - everything they've produced
    Mark Knopfler - everything he's produced as a solo artist.
    Midlake - Antiphon
    Arsaidh - Roots
    Saor - Aura

    And a few others.

    There are so many. I forgot all about Argus, which is odd because it's one of my all time favourites. I saw them quite recently (Martin Turner) and the sound was like being in a studio with them. Unbelievably good.

    Yes Camel is a favourite band, I chose ICSYHFH mainly because of Ice on that album and I love the solo on Summer Lightning.

    Others I should have listed include;

    Santana - Abraxas
    Tori Amos - Boys for Pele
    Frank Zappa - One Size Fits
