Great Study Music

School sucks, and as a science major I've got quiet the load. Here are some sick tunes that are great for listening to while hitting the books.
1 Thrice
The Alchemy Index


All four of these element themed eps were defiantly a different direction for the once post-hardcore band, Thrice, to take. l'll admit, at first I wasn't at all excited about this new sound, but over time, I was able to see the true artistry that was necessary to create such a diverse and emotional set of albums. Each and every volume actually sounds like the element that is meant to be portrayed, which increases the appeal two fold. Great background music for any occasion, including late night cramming.
2The Butterfly Effect
Final Conversation Of Kings


Aussie powerhouse "The Butterfly Effect" showed experimentation at its best with their third full length album. Instead of simply chugging away at melodic riffs, which worked exceptionally well in the past, this time TBE went for a more progressive rock vive. This payed off exceptionally, and the result was beyond anything the band had achieved before. The horns integrated into the sound in absolutely mind blowing.
3This Will Destroy You
Young Mountain


Possibly my favorite Post-Rock band, This Will Destroy You's first EP takes you on an incredible sonic journey full of some of the most melodic rock instrumentals I've ever heard. Suddenly all the pre-exam stress just melts away upon playing this epic set of musical masterpiece.
4BT
These Hopeful Machines


While I hardly consider myself a fan of electronic music, this album stuck out to me. At 110+ minutes in length, this album is perfect for long study sessions. While the instrumentals may become quite complex at times, which is annoying when attempting to concentrate of the chemistry book in front of you, for the vast majority of its duration, the smooth vocals and beats meld into the background and cease to distract.
5Goo Goo Dolls
Dizzy Up The Girl


oh, the 90s. Back in an era when, excluding boy bands, mainstream music wasn't such a pile of horse shit. Dizzy Up The Girl brings me back to my early childhood, helping me forget those tuition loans I'll still be paying off ten years from now. Thank you Washington State for raising tuition YET AGIAN!
6Darkest Hour
Undoing Ruin


About time for a study break? Pop in DH's best album (imo) and relieve some frustration. Warning, may cause obnoxious roommates to spontaneously combust.
7 Sigur Ros
Takk...


Sometimes deciphering lyrics can be distracting when studying, thats why its occasionally nice to listen to some Icelandic dude babble incoherently in some made up language for a good hour. No disrespect to them though, Sigur Ros is overflowing with talent and inspiration. The atmosphere Takk creates will linger in the room long after the final song is finished.
8Jimmy Eat World
Chase This Light


As another band I grew up on, Jimmy Eat World will always hold a special place in my heart and study playlist. These guys have improved exponentially since their self titled release, and Chase This Light continues this trend.
9Opeth
Damnation


Because why not!!
1030 Seconds to Mars
30 Seconds to Mars


An epic album to psych oneself up for a brutal ass-whooping in the exam room.
