15 albums that changed my life

In response to the Facebook meme going around: Saying an album changed your life is giving the album too much credit; you meet enlightenment halfway. The Buddha might be waiting impatiently out there in the road for you to kill him, but its up to you to haul your ass out there with the knife.

That said, there are 42,655 words of a rough draft written on around this topic sitting on my desk/conscience so maybe this will summon me to the front gate with my weapon of choice. Discussed therein, among others, are:

  1. Barry Manilow - Live
  2. Kiss - Alive II
  3. Black Sabbath - Paranoid
  4. Thomas Dolby - The Flat Earth
  5. R.E.M. - Lifes Rich Pageant
  6. "Rick's Mix"
  7. Funkadelic - Maggot Brain
  8. Richard Buckner - Since
  9. Julian Cope - Jehovahkill
  10. The Music of John Cage & Harry Partch
  11. Vienna: Music by Schoenberg, Webern and Berg
  12. Alvin Lucier - I Am Sitting in a Room
  13. Richard Hell & The Voidoids - Blank Generation
  14. The Palace Brothers - There Will Be no-One What Will Take Care of You
  15. Yes - Fragile
