"Two feet of topsoil" Brad Paisley Part II Album.

The solo fiddle intro continues the solo fiddle outro from the last song of his previous album.

My Name is Jonas was a great opener for the Blue Album.

Always thought Helena Beat did a great job setting the tone for Torches by Foster the People.

Losing a whole year is brilliant. Just starts the tone for one of the best albums of all time.

Welcome to the jungle. Really hard to beat.

Bombtrack. Rage's first album was mindblowing the first time I heard it. Unlike anything else at the time.

Straight outta Compton. Another game changer at the time.

More than a Feeling by Boston.

That album holds up as one of the greatest, beginning to end, albums for me. Every single song on it is badass.
