Don't buy on gut instinct any more - even back when I was young, I tended to go by the mighty Kerrang's reviews. Out of the many, many albums I bought thanks to their 5K reviews, when I had never come across the bands before, the standouts are Counting Crows (August) and Redd Kross (Third Eye) as they quickly became my favourite bands/albums.....

The fact I frequented a cracking cd library (remember them?) in Belfast, meant I was able to do a lot of try before you buy - the only albums I can remember buying in a record shop on gut instinct, and loving, were Company of Wolves s/t, a J Geils Band live album (no I'd never heard Centerfold!), The Slingbacks All Pop No Star, and Steve Earle Copperhead Road (mainly because there was also a big poster advertising him playing in a tent down the road - which then became my first ever gig....)

I also remember buying a Snakepit Rebels album because of the band name (!) - it stands out because it has one of my favourite ballads of all time. And the fact that the rest of the album is horrible.
