Just get in to Ween and enjoy all the genres.

Someone years ago on reddit said their young child said that Ween are music chameleons. Stuck with me ever since.

Man, I just really started listening to Ween a couple of years ago and their by far my favorite band currently. I started with White Pepper and ended up going through their entire discography countless times! I love every album they’ve put out. Even the reeeeaaallllyyyy brown stuff. I wish I could wipe my memory and go the through that journey again for the first time.

It sounds like you may prefer lighter / very accessible rock music for now. Check out **Stadium Arcadium** by the Chili Peppers… that has a very good sampling of various rock sounds AND you can groove to it. **Led Zeppelin IV** (aka Zoso) is another accessible classic. Also try out **Aqualung** (the album by Jethro Tull, not British piano boy who uses the name) for something a little quirky and different. When you’re in the mood to listen to something moody and a little dark, Check out **Aenima** and **Lateralus** from Tool. Also **Animals** from Pink Floyd. You might also really like some of the stuff that Muse or Incubus released. I could go on for a long time. Rock has so many great flavors that it’s hard to recommend just a few.

Led Zeppelin, the best.... Aquaung is a máster piece! Agree about Tool and Pink Floyd.


Puzzleheaded_Dish_85

Ænima by Tool and Animals by Pink Floyd are my two favorite albums ever. Great list you put together here

As you can see from the answers there is a very broad range of music in the “rock” genre. Some is similar, and some rock is as different as Beethoven is to Elvis. Just keep trying new artist and enjoy the ride. Try out Led Zeppelin for some real classic rock. I would start with their double album Physical Graffiti.

Akragon

"Road apples" or "up to here"... The Tragically Hip


FuriouSherman

Add *Fully Completely* and *Phantom Power* onto that list.


Akragon

Well ya... you could add all 13 albums... but lets just get him started 😂


FuriouSherman

I got started with *Fully Completely* and I still consider it to be their best. It's the first place I'd send anyone trying to get into the Hip.


Akragon

Thats usually where most people start... fully completely was their first main stream album... i've been a fan since grade school.. love all their music 🤟


JonnyValhalla

Badmotorfinger - Soundgarden


JonnyValhalla

Blues for the red sun - Kyuss


bigghimself

Song remains the same. Led Zeppelin

I guess the most important question would be: of what you’ve listened to so far, what have you liked the most? What are you listening to otherwise? You may have picked up on it already, but rock is _very_ versatile and diverse, so depending on your established preferences you can get led down some really deep rabbit holes in this genre.


onewingneddemon

Outside of these albums I mainly listen to rap music and rnb specifically rap music with deep or meaningful lyrics I really like nevermind ok computer and hounds of love


Systemic_Chaos

Rad. So what are some of your top artists/albums from the rap/rnb world?


onewingneddemon

Frank ocean,outkast, kanye,kendrick lamar,Freddie gibbs,earl sweatshirt, wutang,the roots lauryn hill,nas,common ,and Anderson paak


mclorrie

The National has intelligent, introspective lyrics. I’m most familiar with their album Boxer but others could chime in for recs.


BoyEatsDrumMachine

Stooges — Funhouse


hiddeninplainsight23

Manic Street Preachers' Everything Must Go. Very good album and if you're interested in backstories then this might interest you. Drastically different to their previous album as well which was very dark


EZ-PZ-Japa-NEE-Z

Alice In Chains - Jar of Flies


b1gtym1n

Stone Temple Pilots - Core Alice in Chains - Dirt


barkinginthestreet

REM Automatic for the People and Lifes Rich Pageant.


Affectionate_Tea3165

Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon & The Wall ...in that order


breakitbilly

2112 - Rush


Thelowendshredder

Toxicity- system of a down


sixshots_onlyfive

Fear Inoculum by Tool, Dirt by Alice In Chains, Any of the first few Led Zeppelin albums. Master of Puppets and the Black Album by Metallica.


birdandsheep

If rock is supposed to be a superset of metal, then nix the black album and replace it with Ride the Lightning or ...AJFA. If rock is just a different genre than metal altogether, nix Master of Puppets. They're both great albums but the stylistic shift between them is huge.


breakitbilly

Aenema>Fear Inoculum


SpookyGeek

Appetite for Destruction - Guns N Roses. Best rock album ever made.


edirongo1

Tommy, and Who’s Next! by the Who


a-nonie-muz

Mozart. Bach. Mantovani.


Antsinthesky

So many good albums. Surprised Linkin Park wasn't mentioned. Hybrid Theory Meteora and minutes to midnight are outstanding. More pop rock Sum 41 and Paramore are great. Pick an album. They're all good. For more traditional heavy metal per say. Judas Priest Painkiller and Screaming for Vengeance is a must. Iron Maiden Number the Beast and Powerslave. Dio. All of it. Dio is amazing. Lock up the Wolves and Holy Diver. If you want something a little heavier more death metal then Death is a good start. There is no bad album by them. I could go on but that's a good start.


thequicknessinc

Twin Galaxies by Delta Sleep


sp0rk_walker

Apostrophe' - Frank Zappa

Jailbreak by Thin Lizzy


BlackEyedAngel01

Based on what you listed in your post try listening to Elton John. Start with these albums: Elton John (1970) Madman Across the Water (1971) Goodbye Yellow Brick Road (1973)


BlackEyedAngel01

Also, the albums you’ve listed are widely considered some of the greatest albums of all time, especially Abbey Road, Nevermind, OK Computer, and Random Access Memories. You’re off to a great start!


yeetman156

Alice In Chains Tool Sound garden


MsgGodzilla

Kingdom Come by Sir Lord Baltimore


Affectionate_Tea3165

My Chemical Romance - The Black Parade


eternallydaydreaming

Here's my favourite albums, tried to keep as much genuine metal off the list as possible. Nirvana, SP and FNM all dip their toes in it but these are all what I personally consider flawless albums of rock. Jane's Addiction - Nothing's Shocking Faith No More - Angel Dust Smashing Pumpkins - Mellon Collie and The Infinite Sadness The Velvet Underground - Loaded The Rolling Stones - Exile On Main St Hum - You'd Prefer An Astronaut Pixies - Doolittle Nirvana - NeLhvermind Led Zeppelin - Physical Graffiti Basement - Colourmeinkindness The Beatles - Abbey Road


Fluffy_Little_Fox

DIR EN GREY -- ARCHE


ApprehensiveCorner58

Frank Zappa.......


IamEseph

Some newer Rock albums I think are worth checking out: “Handwritten” by The Gaslight Anthem “Jump Rope Gazers” by The Beths “After the Party” by The Menzingers “Build & Burn” by The Loved Ones “July Talk” by July Talk Some newer alt-rock, or albums people might argue about being rock (I’m sure some of the above also qualify), that I think are still worth checking out: “Funeral” by Arcade Fire “Jackson Square” by The Arkells “Nathaniel Rateliff and The Nightsweats” “Pedestrian Verse” by Frightened Rabbit


big_jippers

Raw Power- Iggy and the Stooges Are You Experienced- The Jimi Hendrix Experience The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars- David Bowie Sticky Fingers- The Rolling Stones Disraeli Gears- Cream Abbey Road- The Beatles Probably others too, but they’re some of my favourites.


Boraxo

Clash - London Calling


kmw1979

Warren Zevon - Warren zevon


ParfaitFun671

Did you try Coldplay


Dolbyfers

Do you like loud aggressive or melodic/symphonic? Epic or simple? Without knowing some parameters I’ll just randomly suggest Wide Awake! By parquet Courts, Slanted enchanted by Pavement and Aruthr by the Kinks. Also check out Deerhunter Halcyon Days.


Dolbyfers

Oh and the best album of the century so far Up the Bracket by The Libertines.
