    I was always a few years behind. In 1985-6 (my sophomore year of High School) it was The Cars on Records and Tapes.

    That was the year I got into prog rock. I was pretty much obsessed with Rush, my favorite albums being 2112 and A Farewell to Kings. I also started listening to classic metal then, and became a big fan of Iron Maiden, Ronnie James Dio, and Metallica in particular. My favorite metal albums included Heaven & Hell, Piece of Mind, and Ride the Lightning.

    The sad truth is I did not own any music in my sophomore year of high school. I used to listen to my sisters records. I obtained my first LP, Jethro Tull's Aqualung sometime during the summer between my sophomore and junior year.

    For me that would be 1973-74. So it was vinyl and bands/artists like Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, David Bowie, Mott the Hoople, New York Dolls, The Who, The Rolling Stones, Alice Cooper, Grand Funk Railroad, Deep Purple.

    1973-1974 pretty much what you'd expect.

    September of my sophomore year is when I bought Dark Side Of The Moon on LP. I was also listening a lot to Alan Parsons Project Eye In The Sky, Don Henley's I Can't Stand Still, John (Cougar) Mellencamp's American Fool (had it on cassette and LP then), Fleetwood Mac's Mirage, Paul McCartney's Tug Of War. Also when I bought Steve Miller's Greatest Hits 1974-78. I also got Sgt. Pepper on LP for my birthday in October.

    Of course, throughout the winter and spring of 1983, I bought many more great records as they were released.

    1996 for me--so that was the death throes of grunge and alt-rock.

    Soundgarden - Down On The Upside
    Alice In Chains - s/t and Unplugged
    Mad Season - Above
    Rage Against The Machine - Evil Empire
    Tool - Aenima

    Also when I was majorly getting big into Beatles for the first time, and Bowie, and Pink Floyd. So all of their (60's, 70's only) CD's as well.
