Nader Bouberhan and His Albums of Life

So this is a window into the existence that is Nader Bouberhan. I hope that it will give some people a closer glimpse into who I am. Also, I hope you like Solo Bass Guitarists.
I honestly could not pick a single album for some years, so here is a sloppy and choppy list of things created by Moi.

Tie: REM Green and Radio Free Albumuth by Stuart Hamm 1988
Flow my Tears the Policeman Said by Stu Hamm



The Offspring 1989
“Jennifer Lost the War.” YES


Judas Priest Painkiller 1990
Painkiller

Pearl Jam Ten 1991
Black = You could pick any song off of this album. Great Stuff=


Iced Earth Night of the Stormrider 1992
Night of the Stormrider


Tool Undertow 1993
Piano Cover Sober


Running Wild Black Hand Inn 1994
Black Hand Inn

Gamma Ray Land of the Free 1995
Rebellion in Dreamland

In High School Gamma Ray was my Band. They were mine.

Victor Wooten A show of Hands 1996
Me and my Bass Guitar

Gamma Ray Somewhere out in Space 1997
Valley of the Kings


1998-1999
I don’t have a favorite.

Nevermore Dead Heart in a Dead World 2000
Dead Heart in a Dead World

Runner up : Dahmer by Macabre

Tool Lateralus 2001
Schism

Nirvana Nirvana 2002
Runner Up : Lacuna Coil Comalies
Swamped
Nirvana was the king with their new track for the year, and even though it was a comp disk, it still owned. However, Lacuna Coil opened my ears to the wonder that is Gothic Metal.

2003-2005
Death Metal with Clean Lyrics

Shahrizoda Oynusan 2006
Oynusan
This is technically a DVD, but this introduced me to Uighur Pop. Hearts.


Tay Zonday 2007
This again isn’t an album, but have to pick Tay for his videos on the tube, and I am not just talking about Chocolate Rain. He has many other great songs, but I will post Chocolate Rain just for kicks.


Jean Baudin Solace 2008
I will stop here because after 2008 I am just a mess with things, and by this point I was out of albums. I started using youtube for all of my musical interests, so it became more about videos than albums.

Transcend

And if I pick two more albums = These are from 2007 and 2008, but I have to include them.
EriK Mongrain
Fates
And
Equilibrium
These are truly great albums, if you are into solo guitarists.

The Silent Fool


Mentionables: Anything by Napalm Death,
Davis Gaines, Across the Tides “My Fav Phantom.”
Screaming Trees: Sweet Oblivion (Would have made the list, but it had only two songs.)

As you see I do not have a fav for every single year, but this is me.

I have listed Tay Zonday and Gamma Ray both as my favorites.
Gamma Ray was then.
Chocolate Rain is now.

QATFYG: Can somebody pick two albums for me, 2009 and 2010?

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:

You Need to Hear This: Concrete Castles

I first heard of First to Eleven a few years ago thanks to the powers of social media. They are a talented young band straight out of my hometown (Erie, PA). Since I've first heard of them, First To Eleven - which primarily were a social media-based cover band - has revealed an original music incarnation, Concrete Castles.  No matter if they're covering songs or releasing their own music, one thing is evident: Concrete Castles is MASSIVELY talented. Anchored by Audra Miller's powerhouse vocals that are vaguely reminiscent of Hayley Williams, Concrete Castles demand your attention. Although they can fall in that sort of amorphous "indie pop" umbrella, I don't think their sound would be amiss on mainstream radio - top 40 or alternative.  "Wish I Missed U" - their debut album - came out earlier this September, and it's an enjoyable, invigorating listen that would probably make those who were raised on emo or fans of CHVRCHES feel at home. Hell, Anth
