I like the best of what there is to listen to. Of course, best is a very individual definition, so judge as you may. I think my fav album in '85(?) was the Back to the Future soundtrack. I also listened to some jazz and classical, though I don't think I got the importance of either in history. I think some good oldies snuck into my skull during this time also. In '87 my mom, god knows why, got me GNR's 1st album. Sometime after that I discovered Suicidal Tendencies and Operation Ivy. Megadeth, Metallica, Blind Melon, and Bad Religion dominated. Blind Melon got me to like what i then considered 'soft music'. In 94 or 95 I heard Sublime and got mad hooked on the Reggae and Ska. Hepcat and the Slackers intro'd me to the 'real ska'. There you go...short as i can get it and very incomplete.
