That's how I felt when I turned 30, which isn't to say I never listen to rock albums, but other genres are more exciting for me to explore.

Speaking as someone who is in his early thirties I have to say that I spent a lot of my twenties listening to other esoteric underground techno and mega obscure Brazilian grooves, but have regressed to rock of late. Now I'm 33 and listen to nothing but Whitesnake and Uriah Heep.

Awful thing when that happens. I had a similar experience at a Tom Jones concert.

Yes I myself am about to start the Zambian leg of my African trip and I hope to find some tribes there who haven’t even heard of an ‘electric guitar’ and instead make music from seeds and fruit - how exciting that would be!

You know, you might try this one group----

HEY, wait a minute!

Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

What other "rock" artists did you explore? I can't help but wonder since you say that all that has stuck with you is the first Joy Division. Not meant as an insult, I sincerely can't fathom this.

It's not the only one that stuck with me. Just the only that was in my top ten list on this thread. When I said 'survivor', I was referring just to that.

I had a Beatles obsession to rival anyone's at 14/15. I then discovered a bit of punk and 80s/90s alt/indie. I got quite heavily into electronic a bit later.

It's still hard to imagine that you aren't still finding things to get out of rock music, but I understand what you're saying now!

The first 4 are the first ones I owned and played a lot, circa 1968-70 [as a 10-12 year old]

Jimi I got into becuz of my bestie's older brother

Badfinger was a favourite in '72, and ever since

Moved to Detroit in 1973 - discovered Bowie and Roxy; got heavily into them and LZ.

Came to Iggy later

Diamond Dog wrote:Those "Ten Albums That Defined My Life".


Is that how we’re defining “Ultimate”? Some of you have chosen some personal and idiosyncratic favourites; others a list that traces your historical development as a music enthusiast; others offer a top 10 of choices that could be objectively argued as some of the greatest and most significant in the canon.

The latter better fits the actual definition of “ultimate” but is arguably the least interesting approach. Probably overthinking it but my choices for each would differ hugely.
