There are some real nice recommendations to check out in your post. I had several Nirvana albums within reach once, but it was before I knew anything about them and didn't buy. Never seen them in the wild since. Ah yeah, it would be easier to explain how quantum physics affect our everyday life "You see, this was recorded in such a way that the singer couldn't hear the band and vice versa, so not only it is dissonant, it is also anti-rhythmic...". That Nirvana album I'm after is supposedly good. I think it's one of the very early true concept albums (or rock operas, whatever they are called), along with S.F. Sorrow by The Pretty Things. I've never heard it though. I know most people nowadays stream/download music and then buy it if they like it, but I don't. I stream occasionally if there's a single I want to hear, but with the low prices of physical music nowadays, I'd rather take a chance and buy an album, even if I end up not liking it. This is probably something I developed as a teenager. I bought Love's Forever Changes when I was 16, and I remember hating it at first. But, you know, I had spent the money already, so I was stuck with it. Because of that I went back to that record more and more, and eventually something clicked and it became one of my all time favourites. If it were a YouTube link, I would have forgotten about it literally five minutes after closing the web browser. Each year I try and acquire the whole discography of one or two artists I really really like, even the records usually regarded as stinkers. I'm doing this because the older I get, the more I realise I can't trust reviews anymore, and I fell in love too many times with albums universally considered by "critics" hit-and-miss, if not plain dull. Luckly music is a cheap hobby and for the price of one single new videogame which you play for 10 hours and then throw out the window, you can get 10 great albums, and among them there's going to be at least one that will change your life forever, or the way you dress, or the way you play your instrument.
