An Album List For No Reason

So Far Gone

This is the EP, released in the So Far Gone (mixtape)->Thank Me Later interim. It's really, really good, especially because of "Fear". I hadn't heard that track before last night whilst listening to this, and it might be my new favorite Drake track.

Very evocative "microhouse" (or what you will) record; reminds me of playing SSX Tricky. "Tessio" is one of the best songs of the past decade, probably.
Electronic Dream

Some of this is a little subpar, but most is really gorgeous. My favorite is definitely "Streetz Tonight".
4Michael Jackson
Off The Wall

I loved every song I had heard off this, and, now, after listening in full, I can say I love every song! "Get On The Floor" is a new favorite. Love that reverb!
The Woods

A little same-y, perhaps, but still kicks ass (even though it doesn't blow my mind like it did when I first listened to it a few months ago). "Jumpers" is classic.
6Regina Spektor
Soviet Kitsch

Another record I don't love quite as much as I used to, but some songs have really grown with time. "Chemo Limo" and "Somedays" in particular.
7R. Kelly

Rules. Really inconsistent sort of but most of it rocks. Even the shitty stuff ("I Love the DJ," "Supaman High"), if that makes sense. "Exit" is soooo classic.
8Linda Perhacs

Gorgeous and strange folk record from 1970. Check it out if you like that kind of shit. "Chimacum Rain" is too beautiful.
9The Blue Nile

This record pretty much has one mode--melancholy, nocturnal; sort of an '80s pop of In The Wee Small Hours. But man, is it effective! The first two tracks are my favorites.
10The Caretaker
An Empty Bliss Beyond This World

Manipulated prewar parlor jazz samples--absolutely gorgeous, a rare "high- concept" release whose listening experience lives up to its promise. Just listen.
