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.

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

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.
