Default What album did you started with / What's your favorite album

Are we hooked to a first love, or quality?

Me, TCATS/TCATS

I fell in love with Dave/Foo Fighters after hearing 'Everlong' the first time. The greatest all-time lyric, 'Breathe out so I can breathe you in... hold you in', ensnared my heart and I haven't looked back since!

In 2005, as a 14 year old, Best of You stopped me in my tracks. I owned One by One only at this point. I loved In Your Honour for a long while, but for me, my favourite album is Wasting Light: I can't see that being surpassed

Saw the Foos in 95 so self titled will always be up there for me, but my all time favourite is TCATS, it flows perfectly, it tells a story.

I was into Nirvana so bought the side/post Nirvana projects like Sweet 75 and Foo Fighters to see what they would sound like.

The first one was a bit of a mixed bag but the latter had me hooked. It wasn't Nirvana but had a different sound from what I was used to. TCATS was even stronger, and obviously that is my favourite.

I still listen a lot to Wasting Light, and like the current album.

I heard I'll Stick Around on the radio when it first came out, and I was a pissed off 13 year old. I didn't know who sang it for a couple of months, then I found out it was the drummer from Nirvana :-) That first album was just what I needed at exactly the right time. Been hooked ever since.

TCATS is still my favorite album, but C&G is getting up there. I still listen to songs off both every day.

Started with S/T when it came out,

My favourite is TINTL, one of my favourite albums ever, by any band.

S/T and its satanic markings on the CD (Thanks to my mother for that one) and my favorite even with Learn to Fly being on there, TINLTL.

Technically started with TCATS. I suppose it'd be on the top of the list now too still, although I might not listen to it as much as a whole these days.

I'm the most uncool fan ever, so technically I started with the Greatest Hits...

Favourite is now TINLTL, I think. But it's so hard to pick.

TINLTL was the point I got into them. Learn to Fly & Aurora made me go back and discover the previous 2 albums and it kind of went from there.

You're right, that does make you uncool! But still, as much as people love to brag that they were there in the beginning (like me), we still all listen to the same songs in the end.

BTW, I started w/ ST, but I am also uncool. Join the club!
