Love is a battlefield, and I'm unarmed.
Forum » Retro Music » The first album you ever purchased

I was not (and never have been) a huge music fan. In the 80's and early 90's, my enjoyment of music (and music videos) were probably at their peak.


It was at this time that I purchased my first album. It was a tape cassette of the Information Society album (by the group of the same name). I still have that one.

You love this signature.
I remember that album. By the time I heard it, I was in my 20s.

For me, the first album I remember buying for myself was Queen's "A Night at the Opera." Admittedly, even when I bought it in 1984, it was a decade old.

The first album for me was Digital Underground's Sex Packets. What was I thinking?

The first album I can recall buying with my own money was (sadly) the Space Jam soundtrack. I had went into the store with the intention of buying "Master of Puppets". Some moron employee told my dad Metallica were "devout Satanists" and "promoted suicide", so he wouldn't let me get it at the time. Luckily, he felt bad about it a day later and bought "Master of Puppets" for me anyway.

So for the sake of sounding 'cool', I'm just gonna go with "Master of Puppets".
