    Chrollo Can we get much higher

    Mine would be The Life Of Pablo. I know it's not the best album but it released shortly after I joined the forum and I remember how excited everyone was (including me). The forum was active as f--- and got me mad hyped for the album. Leaks and speculations have been thrown around left and right. All this stuff made listening to it for the first time pretty amazing. A close second would be BITTSM by Travis for the same reasons. S80 really made those two special for me :emoji_pray:

    i know what you mean...there's nothing like hearing it for the first time. there are lots of albums in which i wish i could pull that men in black s--- and erase my memory so i could hear an album for the first time again. but if i had to pick only one it would probably be blackstar by talib and mos def

    To tell you the truth, I would love to relive my first listen of LiveLoveA$AP.

    I was getting ready to do a DJ gig at my college's halloween party, as I was putting the final touches on my mix I was smoking some loud and in that instance Rocky's mixtape dropped.

    I got in my car and before I even backed out of my driveway, I swear to you, when the beat dropped for Palace I felt like the doors of heaven opened or some s---. The rest of the tape sounded like the most cherubic & paradoxically hellhound music I've ever heard up to that point.

    My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. I was literally going for a walk the first time I heard it down this beautiful, woodsy avenue not far from where I grew up. I’d love to re-experience that again.

    Lmao this reminds me of the time Meek Mill’s project dropped & I went straight to What’s Free, I was so f---ing high at this point I was almost comatose, and when Jay’s verse came on - I entered a new dimension. I’ll never forget that s---.

    Hearing The Ringer, Greatest & Lucky You back to back after Revival was insane to be fair. Had a few pals over for a smoke & listening sesh on the day it dropped, was fire.

    Exactly, how dope this album was at the very first listen. It was like a dose of fresh air after using a public bathroom after homeless bum. Amazing.
