|Favorite Album Openers|
This list does not go in any order.
|1||Tyler The Creator|
"Bastard" - The simple, yet haunting piano and the lyrical prowess really start this album off great.
Turn On The Bright Lights
"Untitled" - This was one of the first post-punk songs I ever heard, and I think it really sets the tone for the rest of the album.
Music For Earthworms
"Abandon All Hope" - The beat for this song is one of my favorites, and Aesop's lyrical ability is second to none.
|4||Of Monsters And Men|
My Head Is An Animal
"Dirty Paws" - I love the folk sound of this song, and it sets the album out right.
Is This It
"Is This It" - The bass on this tune is the best thing about it, for sure.
|6||Godspeed You! Black Emperor|
Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas...
"Storm" - The opening movement is seriously one of my favorite compositions ever.
"For A Pessimist, I'm Pretty Optimistic" - This song is probably my favorite on the album, and the album is great.
|8||The Dillinger Escape Plan|
"Sugar Coated Sour" - This was the song that got me into TDEP to begin with.
|9||The Black Keys|
"Thickfreakness" - I just love how bluesy this song, and the record, is.
"Advent" - I love the riffs, and the vocals are fantastic.
Saving Private Ryan
"Hymn To The Fallen" - My favorite song from one of my favorite movies.
|12||Explosions In The Sky|
Those Who Tell The Truth...
"Greet Death" - Around a minute into this song, I'm completely captivated.
Petitioning The Empty Sky
"The Saddest Day" - Probably my favorite Converge song so far. I haven't heard Jane Doe yet, though.
"A Message To You, Rudy" - My favorite Ska song of all time. The trumpet is just stellar.
|15||The Jimi Hendrix Experience|
Are You Experienced
"Purple Haze" - You can never go wrong with this song. It's a classic in every sense of the word.
Ambient 1: Music For Airports
"1/1" - Quite possibly my favorite ambient song out there. Great album, too.
Lucy Ford: The Atmosphere Eps
"Between The Lines" - One of my favorite beats ever. This song is just so chilled out and relaxing.
The Marshall Mathers LP 2
"Bad Guy" - It's a really, really new one, but it's great nonetheless. When the beat changes, that verse is too good.
Finding Nemo Soundtrack
"Wow" - The tone is set for the whole movie with this track. It really gives off an underwater type feeling.
None So Vile
"Crown of Horns" - Cryptopsy does this song rather well, don't you think?
