My Favorite Albums Before and After Y2K

Since I didn't have the luxury of having parents who heavily influenced my taste in music, like Hoge did, I have had to search for music on my own. For many years I didn't think too much of music, so I just listened to whatever was popular, from 50 Cent to the Barenaked Ladies.

Fortunately, once I got into high school my friends and sisters introduced me to good music, and immediately upon listening I knew I needed more. I began to branch out in every direction, finding things I loved, things I hated, and everything in between.

So, after five or so years I have compiled this list of eighteen albums, nine that were released before the new millennium, and nine that have been released since, all of which have impacted my life in one way or another.
