|My Top Twenty Seven|
My top albums evar. Enjoy
I guess the reason why I try to support Odd Future so much is because they really deserve it. I mean tyler taught himself to play multiple instruments, he is a great rapper, and an awesome producer. They are also real. They just dont give a fuck about anything and that's exciting. "earl" is thier best album i can really get behind them, no matter how annoying they can be at times.
Kind Of Blue
Seen by many as the perfect jazz album. There are better, but still close to perfection
|25||Godspeed You! Black Emperor|
Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas...
The way I judge instrumental bands is if they are able to tell a story without saying their purpose directly. No band does this better than Godspeed.
|24||The Olivia Tremor Control|
Dusk At Cubist Castle
So basically, if the beatles came out in the 90's this is what they'd sound like. Oh, and the ambient tracks are awesome.
Soul On Ice
This album has the best lyrics of any hip hop album Ras's flow is great, and the beats are really good. Shut up they are not lacking.
The best floyd album, dont even joke.
|21||The Dillinger Escape Plan|
Incredible album. Virtuosic instrumentation, underated and obstrusely awesome vocals, and cohesive sampling. Even though the production isn't perfect and can be bizzar, it fits the music. Even if for some crazy reason you hate this album, YOU HAVE to respect the talent it takes to create something like this. And that's pretty much it: either you respect this album, or it will take your respect by force.
The peak of Robert Smith as a songwriter. "Love Song" is about him embarking in a marriage with a women he loves. And nothing could be more scary.
Probably the most abstruse album on this list. This is one of those album where you listen to it. You think "this sucks ass". Then you listen to it again. "Meh". Then you listen to it again. "wow this is amazing" Then you listen to it over and over again add nausem.
Saturday Night Wrist
Criminally underated. To me it's flawless. Every song has qualities, and even Pink Cell Phone is good. C'mon guys stop lying to yourselfs
The song structures remind me of post rock-except in electronic form.
Great lyricism coupled with flawless production= something enjoyable to listen to. Shocking.
One of the most underated albums. This needs your respect. Check them out, you won't be disapointed.
I stand by my philosophy that long songs shouldnt feel like thier long. A thirty minute epic should go by quickly, becuase that means I enjoyed it. 'Person Pitch' has this way of making songs go by very quickly. Maybe it's becuase the song structures feel like they could go on forever anyway. That takes compositional skills man
This is one album that i can't understand not liking. It's so easy to get into, if you think this is bad then listen closer cuz yur wrong.
|12||Modern Life Is War|
Intense, down to earth, and well written this beats out "dangers-Anger" as my favorite hardcore album ever. The vocals are just too good. Seriously, stop it.
Program Music I
The most beautiful album i've heard.
Out To Lunch
I love the quirkiness, and the skill desplayed hear. He had a lot of potential, its too bad he died so young becuase this album puts a smile on my face every time.
|9||City Of Caterpillar|
City Of Caterpillar
This needs more recognition. Although ctts gets all the praise (and the backlash) i feel this is way better. For one thing the buildups are epic, the songwriting unpredictable, and the vocals are simply an audible anxiety attack. Seriously, i am not an anxous person but when I hear this record you can see me on the floor sweating and chewing on my nails.
Not really but still.
If you take the sum of 'untrue's parts, its nothing spectacular. The drum and bass formula, while entertaining is monotonous and repeats throughout the album. The samples are nice but nothing particularly outstanding. But when you put them all together something amazing happens. It gives off this lonely effect that couldnt be more beautiful. For some reason when I listen to this I feel something. Not becuase it's telling me exactly what's on its mind but lets me fill in the blank. Proof of his immense talent and my favorite electronic album of all time.
In The Court Of The Crimson King
The album cover above shows my expression when I lost my copy.
A Love Supreme
Blessed with the most beutiful tone out there, in my eyes John Coltrane is the single best musician/artist of all time. Yes, he is that good.
The Inalienable Dreamless
How this wasnt on either of the sputnik decade lists is beyond me. Not emotionally gripping, but cold and calculated. Not a discordant blast of random noise, but an exercise in complex composition. Not a pretty, blue cloud, but probably the best grind album of all time
|4||My Bloody Valentine|
In my eyes, 'loveless' is the only perfect album of all time. The name is ironic becuase its a celebration of love, happiness, and a big pink hipser orgy.
Choirs Of The Eye
There are two kinds of lyricists; those who talk about specific things, and those whose word dont really make sense but instead paint an obscure picure with metaphors and colorful words. The lyrics for Kayo Dot are such, but it goes beyond that. There isnt a band that bisects Musicianship and songwriting better than Kayo Dot. They have this way of dragging you into their songs. No, into thier world. However, like a dream, you wake up from it when "the antique" ends and the memory of what just happens fades. After a while you dont remember at all but all you do know is you want to listen again.
|2||The Beach Boys|
What makes the perfect pop song? Is it catchiness? Or is it subject matter that everyone can relate to? Well, Pet Sounds has both of these covered. The song's are on such a broad spectrum that any one can indentify with them. Not to mention musically it's perfect. And another thing, Brian Wilson's Harmonizing is without peer.
The Black Saint And The Sinner Lady
Simply the best ever. it is complex, bautes, and cinematic but it goes beyond that. Despite no narraration it manages to tell a mongrel story of religion, exceptance, and race. Even if you dont like music listen to this album, for it is a work of art that transcends a label and or medium and every one needs it in thier life.
|18 is their best. Fans will come around eventually.|
|Nice list. Lots of great stuff here.|
|Yeah, I have to agree with 18. As good as White Pony and Diamond Eyes.|
|Agree completely with what you said about 9. Except it would be higher on mine, nice mix of stuff though..|
|pretty good list|
|Yes, saturday night wrists is way better to me, this surprisingly took a while|
|Holy Crap it got featured! :beams awkardly with proudness:|
|is that good or bad|
|I guess if I had to lean either way I'd say good, just a lot of records you don't usually see on top XX lists around here so it's interesting haha|
|Very good list: 26, 25, 17, 11, 8 and 2 = WIN!|
|27 is a strange number to make a top albums list out of. It is a good list though so cool|
|22 is so true. Nice list. ehhhhhhhhhhhh|
|"They are also real. They just dont give a fuck about anything and that's exciting."|
dude who are you hawks
|I hate 26 so much for Music GCSE|
|Well i dont know hawks but if thinks that two good for him|
|Sweet, I've been listening to Kind of Blue lately.|
|Pink Cellphone is the worst thing they've ever done. |
Good list though. Gratz on the feature.
|Yeah, sometimes I hate just becuase its the most famous jazz album, but i cant deny it's greatness|
|@dammets, its without a doubt the worst on the album, but i dont hate like the rest of mortal society|
|7 is my 1 but this list is great|
|14, 16 are overrated imo, but great descriptions all the way through and cool feature. a lot of excellent stuff on here, esp 4, 8, 11, 17, 22 (even if i am dark side kid). cheers|
|A fantastic list, I'll have to be checking some of these out :) thanks for taking the time to do this!|
The song structures remind me of post rock-except in electronic form."
Never really thought of it like that, but your right.
|Excellent list sir. You are indeed worthy.|
|Calculating Infinity is underrated? Uh what.|
|I never said anything close to resembling "calculating infinity is underrated"' i said that dimitris vocals are underated which they are|
|27 doesn't deserve to be mentioned with the rest of these albums. It's good, sure, but not that good. |
I've been avoiding Beach Boys all my life for some reason until two days ago. Can't stop listening to Pet Sounds. So. Good.
|Also, fuck yes 23. Needs more recognition around here. One of the best hip-hop albums ever|
|@Trebor its not as good objectively, but i think its one of the most chilling albums in recent times.|
@ComfortablyDumb yes along with jackie o ive been hyping that album. To me it IS the best rap album
|I meant why did you put 27 albums|
|O I counted how many albums i have fived, only counting one per artist. I got 27|
|couldn't agree more with 18.|
|wow this list fucking rules|
|1 is correct|
|Loveless is perfect|
Puts it at #4
|shit, 5 is a beast|
