The first album you bought?

It's only cool if no one's heard of it.

saxmaniac, smashmouth are pretty good.

punk has to be raw. there's just no point otherwise. it moves to rock as the artists get better.

I posted this back in whatever thread it was that we derailed for this original conversation, but it was Ace of Base- The Sign. In third or fourth grade. It's STILL one of the best. "I saw the sign, and it opened up my eyes, I saw the sign, life is demanding without understanding..." I still have it in my car, it's still in perfect unscratched shape, it's on my iTunes... yup, I rule.

I feel like since my first CD was so awesome, I deserve to reveal my most embarrassing CD. So yeah, I definitely bought a Juvenile CD. I also had Lou Bega. Feel free to laugh.

And because I like to take cues from Caitlin, the last CD I bought was the new Brand New CD, "The Devil and God are Raging Inside Me." Which is one of the most incredible things I've EVER heard.

The first album I acquired was Galaxee - welcome to our galaxee, and I actually had fun listening to it :) From there on I went from trance through rap, rock and ended up in the metal genre. My brother and I listened through my musical collection chronologically the other day, and most of it was simply utter shite :P We had a good time laughing at me at least.

Me too, except for the being 8 part.

I'll be the third on that. I was at least 14 or so, and it was a CD. I was never interested in buying any music before then, as my parents had a large CD collection of their own that I enjoyed.

Dark Side of the Moon. 1974, $1.
Overplayed it to the point where I cringe to hear it again.
I think I also got something by John Coltrane at the same time.

I have bought 1 cd ever, aaron carter.

I was given "Brian Adams - Songs You Know By Heart" with my first CD player. I then bought "Aerosmith - Get a Grip" and "Pearl Jam - Versus".

I don't feel bad about those.

I do believe my 1st CD was Green Day - kerplunk.

My last cd was Against me! - new wave, and I'm not too pleased. As long as they still play pints of Guinness make you strong live, I guess I don't care what the latest album sounds like.

As a lad, I had only a few cassettes. In Australia, you were practically issued with John Farnham's Whispering Jack, so I had that, I had Shyhooks Greatest Hits, which wasn't too bad actually, and also John Paul Young Greatest Hits. The first two things I remember specifically requesting were Paris (the concept album, not the actual musical, although owning the musical would be cool) and R.E.M.'s Automatic For The People. The first thing I actually went out and bought after that was R.E.M.'s Out Of Time, the previous album to Automatic For The People.

The first album I acquired was 'Abbey Road' (Admittedly, not the original vinyl). I did not actually bought it with my own currency, since I was lacking it at the time, but I re-payed my debt within a matter of days, so I can argue it was bought on credit.


If that doesn't count, 'Revolver' by same.

Bush - Sixteen Stone

Bush is still one of my favorites, as they are kings of the laid-back hard feel. They're simplistic, but very catchy, and quite fun. Some things can get a bit tiring, but I'd say that they're pretty good, on the whole.

I'm not sure which is the first I bought and which were gifts, but likely that it was one of:

Don McLean - Don McLean
Bruce Springsteen - Greetings from Asbury Park
Genesis - Foxtrot

The first CD I bought was Peter Gabriel - Peter Gabriel (the first one).

Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon

edit: whoa, this thread is way older than I thought. Apparently I have already divulged this information.
So, I got tired of the fact that the appearance of my band name in my signature made my posts on this forum the dominant result when googling for my music. Anyway, if you think I might happen to be a good musician, you can test this theory here.

I don't remember whether I or my parents bought it, but the first CD was Dookie by Green Day.

Lemonheads - Creator

At least that's the one I (want to) remember. There may or may not have been some crappy pop one hit wonders on tape but that does not count, since it was before adolescence. And or course, you're not a real person before that... Hm. Usually you're not a real person during adolescence either... well...

Bon Jovi's Slippery When Wet and GnR's Use Your Illusion I & II. I didn't realize until I was older and wiser that most of the GnR CDs were just filler to get foolish people (such as myself) to buy 2 discs. Screw it, there were some jams on there.

I think my first CD was Depeche Mode's Violator. First tape is really hard to recall.

I know that Rolling Stones' Steel Wheels, Madonna... uh, True Blue? (Had La Isla Bonita on it, I know), and Bon Jovi - Slippery When Wet were the first that I owned, though I didn't outright purchase them.

I dunno, I guess I'm not really ashamed of any of that. It was the 80s. We did these things. Somewhere, if I could ever find it, I still own a cassette tape of The Escape Club, and several by Jem and the Holograms. *Shrug*

Garbage by Garbage.

I still think that's cool.

(Actually that was part of a stack of things...including Adore by the Smashing Pumpkins and maybe something by Weezer? And probably something that wasn't good, that I'm forgetting. I was at least 14 at that point. I was gifted all kinds of weird crap before then, most of which I didn't ask for, so I don't think that counts. [I acquired most music by making poor-quality cassettes off the radio.] Although I did ask for and get that Hanson album...in like sixth grade...like a month before everyone who was cool decided it Definitely Wasn't Cool Any More.)
