The Rolling Stones are the quintessence of Classic Rock. This Double Album record is the most amazing of their CDs, filled with sex, passion, love, and fury. It sounds so good that it seems to be recorded live, yet it's perfected in a way that is so fantastic. Definitely should be given a chance.

Something to listen to when you want to relax, very slow and soft, melodious and harmonious all the way through. A very good ambient/indie blend for the days when it's raining outside and you're reading a good book.

Look these guys up and you'll think they're just a bunch of people rapping along like regular gangsters and boring little "fuckmotherfuckshitdudesonofabitch" etc. But really, they're a sort of acoustic hip-hop like group, their "rapping" is more like singing, and I must say, I detest rap music, but this album is gold to me!

This album contains my second favorite song of all time, "Lizard", which is comprised of almost every genre of music compacted into 23 minutes. Most of the songs are about adventure, and if you are a fan of AD&D, you will really enjoy them. This is definitely a CD for you to try out, and I'm positive it will be worth your time.

R.E.M. has a wide variety of music, and this album is soft and melodic, beautiful acoustic guitar and organs and tons of other instruments are bouncing around in your ears, while the marvelous singer's lyrics cut a fine edge through your mind. So amazing and so wonderful to listen to while in a mood to relax, or when you're depressed. Sit back with a cup of tea and a good visualizer or book and kick back for 45 minutes.

King Crimson is just so powerful, but it's saddening how few people know about or listen to their music! Robert Fripp is an excellent guitarist, making up his own scales and stunning solos. After hearing this album, my love for Progressive Rock was intensified by at least 100%.

Guns N' Roses are so good, an incredible album, the Slash takes guitar playing to a new level with perfectly executed solos and riffs. The famous "Sweet Child of Mine" is probably the best song they've written.

The classic song "Freebird" is Lynyrd Skynyrd's signature song, everybody in the sixty's and seventies were covering this song and playing it all over the place. One of the best solos of all time is on this album, and shame on you if you don't already have this CD. A definite must-have.

Buckethead and a few other people, such as Serj Tankian from System of a Down, get together and play the craziest songs possible. Buckethead loves lyrics involving death, chickens, robots, and buckets. His guitar playing skills are so incredible, what with his solos and perfect handling.

The Essential Fripp & Eno is a collection of some of the best songs by Robert Fripp and Brian Eno. While Eno plays intense loops and ambient tracks, Fripp cranks out amazing guitar solos. Healthy Colors is probably the best of their works.

If you like drugs, techno, dance, electronic, industrial, sex, or anything crazy that has to do with beats, you'll just LOVE Lords of Acid. Everything is combined in their best album Lust, with songs such as "I Sit On Acid" which consists entirely of a girl that says "I wanna sit on your face". Just amazing music to turn you on.

A very interesting album, a narrator called "The Central Scrutinizer" tells the story of what might happen to you if you choose a career in music. Listen from the first track to the last, without skipping, or you will miss something important. The whole album is the first part of an intense ballad of Classic Rock and humorous lyrics.
