Appologies for being cliché late-90s early 2000's.

- Mellon Collie & The Infinite Sadness
Hey, I was in my late teens, a school loner, etc. wink

- OK Computer
Late late teens, early twenties. Probably the real turning point. "What have I been listening to all this time? You mean there's actually good music out there that speaks to me?" Etc.

- Red (King Crimson)

- Moya (GY!BE)

Those two early 20s as well, but they more closely define what I listen to now more than a decade later.
VinceL
The Beatles - Meet the Beatles
Cream - Wheels of Fire
Hawkwind - In Search of Space
Tangerine Dream - Phaedra

Through the years I have heard lots of great music. But, these 4 albums truly caused changes in my life.

In some cases, the change didn't occur until years after I first heard the album. But, I can definitely trace the life change back to the particular album.

I need to provide a context ... I think of this question in terms of "made you pay attention when normally you wouldn't or didn't" ...

when I was 10ish I was listening to the radio late at night, I was trying to catch the Dr. Demento show as I was into "funny stuff". Instead I got the entire Yes Album. I was awestruck. Seriously. I was only around pop, country and classical to that point. Classical was sometimes "interesting" but usually not satisfying to me then. I didn't really care for pop or country ... it was as disposable then to me as it is now. The Yes Album was like someone turned on an extra sense for me. So, I quickly got into all kinds of Prog and early fusion and even a little jazz, although it would be awhile before I liked foundational jazz.

1975 -- 14 years old ... A Night at the Opera. OMFG PRODUCTION!!! both a good thing when used for good and of course a bad thing when used for autotune evil.

1976 ... 15 years old ... Romantic Warrior. I think I spent a year learning all the guitar licks on that album. Again, it changed the way I thought about music. Even though I had been listening to Mahavishnu and Weather Report ... this seemed like a new voice, which then got me into Jean Luc Ponty and the rest of the fusion jam bands.


77ish ... Some Kind of Blue
I know that isn't when it was released, but it is when I finally "got" jazz.

There have a been a couple more things like that, but I think those were the big expansions of the mind moments. And of course they were fairly early in my life.

in that context my response would be different. It would be less about the album, and more about the first time I experienced the artist.

the first time I heard Sun Ra
the first time I heard Coil
the first time I heard Panasonic
the first time I heard John Coltrane

I kind of meant my context hihi There are obviously many ways to interpret the topic. I went a little beyond first heard, to first heard something that was WOW different.

Coltrane would be on that list for me too by the way, but much later after I acquired a taste for that style. I actually didn't like it when I first heard it.
