Most of the music that I purchased in the 60s & 70s was either heavy rock (Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin etc) or folk-rock (Fairport Convention, Strawbs, Pentangle etc) but I did buy this album of Simon and Garfunkle.
Metallica Kill Em All f***ing brutal. it's incredible how fully realized they were from the first album. it was a new vision of metal. every song is a classic. one of the best metal albums, and one of the best albums, of all time.
Fallen by Evanescence - The songs on this album can be descibed as "highly atmospheric pieces of music". A powerful, beautiful voice is combined with an harmonious ensemble of highly diverse instruments. You will just love it.
