Nearly Classics

Last night, I decided to bump For Emma, Forever Ago up to a 5 after months of it sitting at 4.5. The list is other albums that are close to 5/5 territory.
1Bon Iver
For Emma, Forever Ago

There's no point in me justifying a 5 for this. It's been done several times
2Damien Rice

This album single-handedly convinced me that singer-songwriter albums are
worth my time.
3 Godspeed You! Black Emeror
F# A# (Infinity)

The apocalypse never sounded so awesome.
4Manchester Orchestra
Mean Everything to Nothing

I so badly want 2009 to produce a classic album for me. This is my
favourite album of this year, but it's not quite a classic.
5Protest the Hero

I took me a while to realize that this is significantly more interesting than
6The Decemberists
The Crane Wife

I don't know what to say about this album other than it owns my face
whenever I listen to it.
7Animal Collective
Merriweather Post Pavilion

I think this is the first album (or of the first few) that I bought based off of
praise from this site. If I'd gotten a mediocre album that this site was going
apeshit for, I would have probably questioned the collective musical integrity of the site and peaced out. Lucky for you guys, I stuck around!
