Dear fellow FM Basers,

I have recently received an itunes voucher and have enough to buy 2 albums, I am a rock kind of guy who enjoys many different bands ranging from today all the way back to Led Zeppelin era. Also I am into metal if it is not screamo (so I guess you would say alternative metal).

Please could you guys give me any album recommendations? I really want a good all round album, none of this 2 or 3 only good songs!

Please note I have Led Zeppelin albums so don't recommend them!

P.S. For some reason moderators have removed the favourite album thread which I thought had a lot of good suggestions on there! Oh well!

Not quite metal but The Bends- Radiohead is an album everybody should own.
Bush - Glycerine
Offspring - Smash
Oasis - Whats the story morning glory
Live - Throwing Copper
Queen - Greatest Hits
Metallica - Black/Master of Puppets
If you're into rock/ alternative metal take a listen to The Hunter by Mastodon.
The Answer - Rise
Alter Bridge - AB3.....or Blackbird
Alice in Chains - Facelift
Pearl Jam - TEN.....or Versus
Soundgarden - Badmotorfinger....Superunknown
Guns N' Roses - Appetite For Destruction
The Union - Siren Song
Foo Fighters - Wasting Light
Metallica - Metallica(The Black Album)......Which on a side note apart from containing great tracks, has the best production quality of any Metallica album and for me any album by any band ever
Thin Lizzy - Thunder and Lightening
Stone Sour - House of Gold and Bones Part 1
Rival Sons - Pressure and Time....or Head Down
Chris Cornell - Euphoria Morning..(best solo album of all time)
Stone Temple Pilots - Core....or Purple
Ac/Dc - Highway To ****
Temple of The Dog - Temple of The Dog
