    List a few live albums you enjoyed. All music genres are welcome.

    I'm a rock fan myself so this is my selection:
    (note that the list is not in any particular order)

    Pink Floyd - Pulse
    Queen - Live At Wembley (1986)
    Dream Theater - Live Scenes From New York
    Yes - Yessongs
    Judas Priest - Live At Brixton Academy (it's my favourite cause I actually attended it)
    Deep Purple - Concerto for Group and Orchestra

    The list could go on.

    I mainly listen to rock and metal music, but there are few exceptions (also below). Some albums I enjoy:

    Megadeth (all, but I suggest you start with Criptic Writtings, Youthanasia and The World Needs A Hero ;) )
    Godsmack (first three albums, the last one is... not as good. So go for Godsmack, Awake, Faceless and The Other Side(acoustic!) )
    System Of A Down (again all, start with the newests - Mesmerize + Hipnotize)
    Thin Lizzy - Greatest Hits(2cd), but also any of the other (e.g. Dedication)
    RHCP - Californication
    Black Sabbath - The Best Of Black Sabbath (2cd)
    Slipknot - Vol.3. (The Subliminal verses)
    Stone Sour - Come What(ever) May
    Tenacious D - Tribute, Pick Of Destiny
    The Prodigy - The Rest, The Unreleased, THE LAST, The Fat Of The Land
    Silverchair - Neon Ballrom

    and I could go on and on... I need to bring some order to my music library ;)

    Tenacious D's Tribute is hillarious. But Jack Black sure has great vocals.

    On account of Sabbath, somehow I prefer Dio years. I love the Mob Rules album.

    If you liked Tribute try The Pick Of Destiny, you shouldn't be dissapointed.

    Dio has great voice (BTW - guess who is guest singing in first song of The Pick of Destiny...), but the lyrics gone down at his times in Black Sabbath. Ozzy distinguished Black Sabbath, Dio had written a totaly new and fresh chapter in the band's history, both had great influence on generations of metal/rock bands and funs... Mob Rules is great btw ;)

    I've seen the movie. It's great! And it's way funny.

    Well musically I prefer the Dio years, but really Ozzy is Ozzy. Enough said. The man's a legend.

    Btw, did you ever listen to the Canadian band called Saga? They're a little bit weird mix. Rock with metal technique and softer melodies. Maybe you'd like them.

    No, I do not know them. But thanks, I'll try them out :) Do you recommend any particular album for the start?
  7. melkior

    Well, you can try their latest album Trust. It's from 2006.
