Song/Album that changed the way you thought about music?

For me, it was hearing Dinosaur Jr.'s "Little Fury Things" off of "You're Living All Over Me" (1987).. the blissful combination of noise and melody changed the way I thought of music...

Before then, It was top 40, metal and some strains of punk and early alternative music (the records everyone knew).. most of the shite I owned, went into the bin shortly after..

Jane’s Addiction - Up the Beach/Ocean Size
— absolute WTF beginning to an album. I had never heard anything like it before or since.

Metallica - Master of Puppets (album)
— big hair metal fan in the early to mid-‘80’s. This album shifted my tastes.

Beastie Boys - Licensed to Ill
— still probably the most fun album out there. Lots of debauchery and mischievous behavior accompanied listening to this.

Pavement - Watery, Domestic EP
— I was a minor fan of REM before, but this shoved me headlong into indie music.

Afghan Whigs - Gentlemen (album)
— I had “Congregation” already, but this album blew my mind both sonically and lyrically.

As a child:
Beach Boys - I Get Around
Could not get enough of it; Beach Boys are still my favorite band.

As a middle schooler:
Metallica - Wherever I May Roam live at the 1993 American Music Awards
Blew my mind. Made my mom take me to get all of their albums the next day. I wore those CDs out.

As a college kid:
Sigur Ros - Taak (the entire album)
I had never heard anything like that before; totally captivated me. I immediately became a huge post-rock fan and listen to it almost daily.

While not a paradigm shift like the others; more recently, the first time listening to Orville Peck - Dead of Night was one of those very refreshing musical moments that I hadn’t experienced in a long time.

The Bad Brains first album (self titled). It was rebellious in every way. I've still not heard anything like it.

NIN-Pretty Hate Machine.

Was exactly what I needed to snap me out of my hair band rut.

Clash “The Clash” turned me from a casual punk into a hardcore punk.

Def Leppard's Photograph off Pyromania. Blew my 11 year old mind when it came out in '83.

Boards of Canada - The Color of the Fire

I grew up on hard rock and metal, which is still dear to me. But hearing this for the first time and exploring the rest of the BoC catalog kicked open doors in my mind that I didn't even know were there.

This was in 2002 and BoC has been my favorite "band" ever since.

For me, it was when I watched The Band's Last Waltz. Until that point, I tuned out anybody that my dad did not like. When Neil you came out and did Helpless, I realized that my dad, a die hard Skynyrd fan, had likely never listened to any other Neil Young song other than Ohio.

Pink Floyd - A Momentary Lapse of Reason.

I was in college and I always saw Floyd as mostly " The Wall" and "Wish you were Here" Then one Sunday night in the Frat house the guy in the room next to me played the album and by the end I had a new appreciation for real musicianship and quality songwriting.

To this day I still think that The Delicate Sound of Thunder is probably one of the finest albums of the last 35 years.

Late high school. Got invited to a party that was mostly people from a different school. Had heard nothing but top 40 before that. When I heard Ramones - Pleasant Dreams, everything changed.
