After listening to the most recent Tested podcast I was just curious to here what everyone in the GB community's first album was that they bought. Format doesn't really matter unless you want to breakdown your first everything. My first two CDs were The Marshall Mathers LP by Eminem and Unleash the Dragon by SIsqo when I was like 10.

The first one I bought myself was Hot Show by Prozzak on cassette at a yard sale when I was 8 or 9....I don't regret a damn thing.

I think it was Musique, the Daft Punk compilation. Sort of a "Best of" thing. That was in high school. I didn't really listen to a lot of music growing up. I spent most of my money on video games.

I can't remember my first actual album (probably some compilation/soundtrack to something) but my first album once I got serious about music was The Black Album when I was about sixteen or seventeen.
 
EDIT:  Metallica's self-titled album, also called "The Black Album" in case I may have had to clarify (I wouldn't have)

I think the first album I bought myself was Metallica - ...And Justice for All.

#17 Posted by ShadowKnight508 (659 posts) -

First album that I bought for myself was "Waking the Fallen" by Avenged Sevenfold (2003). However, the first album given to me was the 2000 Grammy Nomination CD that featured the nominated songs from 1999/2000. 

 The first and still one of the best album purchases of my life xD

#26 Posted by DukesT3 (1918 posts) -

First album I was given was The Slim Shady LP for my birthday. Edited of course -_- but I bought Slipknots debut album and No Doubts Return to Saturn on my own. So those two were my first albums I bought. Weird combination, I know.

License to ill by The Beastie Boys 
Astro Lounge by Smash Mouth 
 
I threw away the Smash Mouth album about 2 years later. But I still listen to License to ill. So good. 

#28 Posted by KillyDarko (1888 posts) -

Dude, I honestly can't remember, that was like, 20 years ago :P
But if I had to take a wild guess, I'd say it was probably something from Iron Maiden-- they were my first favorite band.

Vapor Transmission by Orgy.  
 
I still love this album. 

#36 Edited by Illmatic (1358 posts) -

First legit CD was actually two at once: Tha Carter 2 by Lil Wayne and Lupe Fiasco's Food & Liquor by Lupe Fiasco. I must've played Food & Liquor at least 100 times in that fist month of owning the CD. Every track almost perfectly memorized.
 
If were talking first CD period, then I did buy a bootleg of Jay-Z's "last" CD, The Black Album. A mother fucking classic.
 
I didn't buy any CD's before this because I didn't own my own CD player and God only knows what would happen if I played rap music in the living rooms stereo set with parents around. When I finally did get a CD player for Christmas, I could only afford to get bootlegs of albums I wanted so I'd stop by a local bootlegger's spread out collection of CD's by my high school. One CD for 3 bucks, 2 for 5. Wasn't till I moved on to college and got a job that I actually started buying CD's.

First CD I got was the Red Hot Chili Peppers "Scar Tissue" single, but the first album I got was Limp Bizkit's Chocolate Starfish.

#39 Posted by PeasantAbuse (5138 posts) -

First albums ever given to me were some cassettesby some unmentionable boy bands in the 90's when I was extremely young, and obviously stupid.  I think the first album I bought was some Black Sabbath compilation CD at a garage sale.
