Before Machine Head, there was Deep Purple In Rock! The album of albums.
This is the first Deep Purple album I heard and it completely blew me away. I mean, the speedy Speed King to the catchy Black Night to the monumental epic Child In Time, this album is one of the greatest albums ever!
Child In Time
Flight Of The Rat
Into The Fire
Outstanding tracks: Child In Time, Speed King & Black Night... I haven't heard most of the others!
Have to admit, I never was a Nirvana fan (not even after hearing Smells Like Teen Spirit!). My friends kept insisting that i try Nirvana out but i kept refusing. When i gave them my hard-disk for some movies, they also slipped the Nevermind album with a few songs from the In Utero album too!
I was pretty steamed at first but i decided to open Come As You Are and that's it! Nirvana became my no. 1 band for that moment and i even started appreciating Smells Like Teen Spirit after the success of the previous song!
Smells Like Teen Spirit
Come As You Are
On A Plain

How can you just ignore an album which is literally screaming METAL! in big bold blasting letters (Thank you DeVito)
Anyways, this is one of the early metal albums which i fell in love with! From the rebellious Breaking The Law to the care-free rocker Living After Midnight to the crazy Metal Gods, this album is the cornerstone in rock music... and forever will be!
Breaking The Law
Living After Midnight
Outstanding tracks: Breaking The Law & Living After Midnight!
500 Greatest Songs: None!
150 Greatest Guitar Tracks:
Breaking The Law: No. 143
Long before Metallica, Pantera, Megadeth or even Motorhead - who took Metal to a higher level - there was Paranoid by the most haunting, most daring and most metal-esque band, Black Sabbath - the Citizen Kane of Heavy Metal!
Anyways, It's hard to label out one song which can be considered the greatest... Whether you like all or not, your jaw is gonna drop 30 feet deep inside the ground when you listen to any song from this album!
Hand Of Doom
Fairies Wear Boots
Outstanding tracks: Virtually all but my fav. are Paranoid, Ironman, War Pigs & Electric Funeral!
Alternate title: The Best of Pantera: Far Beyond the Great Southern Cowboys' Vulgar Hits!
You can't label out one Pantera album and declare it the best. You just can't. That's science!
So what do you do when you are stuck in a situation like this? You buy this compilation CD which has been so brutally named: Reinventing Hell!
This may be a compilation CD and i don't consider them as 'albums' but it's sick far beyond driven! This CD contains 15 tracks from Pantera's 4 well-known albums!
From the groovy Walk, to the foot-stomper 5 Minutes Alone to the haunting Floods to the in-your-face-AC/DC I'm Broken, this compilation is a must-have for us junkies!
Cowboys from Hell
Mouth for War
5 Minutes Alone
Drag the Waters
Where You Come From
Cat Scratch Fever
Revolution Is My Name
I'll Cast a Shadow
Hole in the Sky
