Albums that Shaped Alt Dialogue – the preamble

The end of the year is always a quiet time for new albums, there’s maybe one or two that sneak in but in general it’s the time of year when re-issues, compilations and end of year lists are the order of the day. To keep things fresh, we’ve decided to bring you a new feature, the albums that shaped Alt Dialogue.

We’re doing this intro piece as something separate so we can link back to it and it doesn’t clog up the actual feature. Think of it as a point of reference.

The albums that shaped Alt Dialogue is a bit different from the albums that influenced Alt Dialogue and we think it’s important that we make the separation between the two. It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that every album we cover on the site influences us, even if it’s a load of garbage it’s still ends up influencing our opinion of the band and even the genre it falls in, the album will most likely go as far as influencing our moods.

To actually shape Alt Dialogue, the album must be something special. It needs to stop us in our tracks, introduce us to something new, make us fall in love and excite us. The albums that will be featured over the next few weeks span a lifetime, some of them we first heard in the 90s; some we heard in the last couple of years.

These are the albums that formed the tastes of Alt Dialogue, shaped Alt Dialogue and changed our lives.

1 Crimson by Alkaline Trio

2 Adrenaline by Deftones

3 Smash by The Offspring

4 Melon Collie and the Infinite Sadness by The Smashing Pumpkins
