This is meme making the rounds on Facebook. But as long as I wrote it, I might as well use it here too.
The rules: Don't take too long to think about this. List 15 albums you've heard that will always stick with you. Tag some friends, including me, because I'm interested in seeing what albums my friends choose. To do this, go to your Profile page, then to your Notes tab,paste rules in a new note, list your 15 picks below, and tag people in the note.
Kiss Alive II - The first album I have any memory of caring about. I was 8 or 9.
Van Halen II - The 2nd record I have any memory of caring about.
