I'm Back.. Time for a Blog Meme

Hello Everyone, sorry I have been absent from writing anything for almost a month now. Everything has been crazy, playing shows, going to shows, planning shows, then getting really really sick. But it's cool because I'm back now and I have some good ideas of things I'm going to post, and talk about.
To celebrate my return from blog hibernation *cough* real life *cough* I will be posting a really dumb Meme thats been going around a lot of the music blogs I frequent. Basically you write down all the years you have been alive and from that, you choose your most influential album that was released that year. Yeah its lame, but I forgot to bring the music I wanted to post today.

Some things to note:

1. A lot of the early stuff I was not listening to at the time, but has become very influential to me in the future. (I wasn't listening to Jesus & Mary Chain's - Psychocandy when I was 2, but I played the shit out of that album later on.)

2. The list isn't accurate of what I was listening to until '93 when I turned 10 and bought Bjork's - Debut. Everything after is fairly accurate.

3. This is really hard and has been very time consuming for something so very, very stupid. And I could not choose a single album on some of these dates, like I said it's difficult... Also, I have realized that I stopped buying major label stuff around '03, the list became really difficult then. Ok, whatever, lets get this over with...
