10

My 10 favorite albums of all timez. It was bound to happen some time. This is pretty stable atm, don't see it changing in the near future. Without further ado...
10The Strokes
Is This It


There's something about this album. I can't quite put my finger on why it's so different
from other 2000s rock bands, but I guess that's why I love it so much. Highlights
include Hard To Explain, Last Nite, and New York City Cops.
9The Weakerthans
Reconstruction Site


This album is perhaps the most warm and comforting I have ever stumbled upon.
John K. Samson's lyricism is, as usual, stellar, and the music is soft and beautiful and
breathtaking.
8Pixies
Doolittle


Doolittle really shouldn't be this inviting and catchy. It's dissonant, it's rough around
the edges, it's dark, it's cacophonous. But for some odd reason, every second of it is
entrancing and infectious. Everything about this odd little record is wonderful.
7Boards Of Canada
Music Has The Right To Children


This didn't do anything for me the first time I heard it. It definitely does now.
6Say Anything
...Is a Real Boy


Say Anything really created a masterpiece with their first album, one they haven't
been able to come near since. Through all of Max Bemis's absorbing, scathing lyricism
are gorgeous melodies, excellent drumming, and memorable song after memorable
song.
5Kanye West
My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy


Kanye West isn't a modest guy. He's probably the least modest celebrity, really. It's
been said to death. And his lyrics on My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy show him
bragging, boasting, preening every second he can. There's a multitude of guest
appearances that shouldn't work out at all. With its long runtime, it should drag and
have some filler tracks. But it doesn't. My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is a miracle,
one that I never saw coming. Absolutely brilliant from start to finish.
4My Bloody Valentine
Loveless


This album takes me to another planet. It puts me in a trance-like, drugged out state
like no other. Seamless, fluid, and drowned in fuzz, I love every quality this album
has going for it. Not a weak track, once again.
3Wu-Tang Clan
Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)


Good god have I played this thing to death. The Wu-Tang Clan's debut album is the
best rap album I've ever heard. RZA's crisp oddball beats are the perfect backdrop to
let this quirky-as-hell collective do their thing. The strange, dissonant piano loops are
infectious and catchy as hell, and each member brings something new to the table.
There's not a weak track on the thing, and some of the best are the hostile opener
Bring Da Ruckus, the obvious classic CREAM, and Da Mystery Of Chessboxin.
2Neutral Milk Hotel
In The Aeroplane Over The Sea


It's virtually become a meme at this point. The internet has annihilated this album,
reviewing it, praising it endlessly, and mentioning it constantly. It's become a classic
in such a short amount of time and just keeps building its own reputation.
This album has feels. A lot of feels. The feelsiest album I've ever heard. Whether it's
the 8 minute, shockingly simple yet beautiful Oh Comely, the sob-worthy closer Two
Headed Boy Pt. 2, or the I LOVEEE YOU JESUSS CHRISTT, there's a gold mine of
praise-worthy moments on the album. As a cohesive whole, it works better than
almost any other album.
1Pink Floyd
The Dark Side Of The Moon


wow so original vry l33t
To put it simply, this is the album that made me appreciate music as an art form, as
entertainment, as one of the most important things in my life. Before I heard Pink
Floyd's opus at 10 years old, I didn't really listen to music too much. I saw this album
in my father's CD collection and, being Floyd, I'd heard of it. So I gave it a spin and
goddamn, was I blown away. I loved every damned minute of it and I have ever
since. The only perfect record in my eyes.
