    WOW...how can you choose?

    About 10 years ago a friend bought me Lyle Lovetts double album STEP INSIDE THIS HOUSE. It changed me. I started listening to more song writers, travelled to Nashville, learned about Townes Van Zandt etc... So for me, that's it. I recognize it's not a popular choice but when music can change your life, that's something.

    Rush- All the World's a Stage

    Kiss -Alive

    Both of these albums was their break-out albums for me.

    Finally got around to watching the documentary about the making of it. Really cool insights into the conceptualization of the album. I also had no idea about how close The Who came to breaking up because of it.

    I assume you mean the studio album? Believe it or not, I actually prefer the soundtrack (though I certainly can do without Jack Nicholson singing Go To the Mirror). The studio album is great too, though.

    All the worlds a stage is so raw and IMO released way before RUSH established themselves.

    Was my first RUSH album.

    Learned to play every song on the album.
