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...
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.
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
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.

Music Has The Right To Children
This didn't do anything for me the first time I heard it. It definitely does now.
...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
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.
|4||My 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.
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.
|2||Neutral 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.
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.
|1 list per day dude. Either way, I too enjoy most of these records so good job.|
|yea sorry couldn't resist : )|
|aw ya weakerthans|
|Saw Neutral Milk Hotel last night. My God they were glorious. One of the best things about it for me was the way they managed to work Aeroplane's cohesion into their set.|
|a really safe list|
|Any top 10 list with Pixies in it is great (well unless it's Indy Cindy...)|
Then again a top 10 with Kanye West kind of drags it down...
Good list anyway! I can think of a couple of flaws for 1, but I still 5'd it of course.
|very original taste|
|Solid list. Great choices. That Kanye album is a modern hip-hop masterpiece. Glad to see it praised.|
ppl who care about originality normally have bad taste
|weird statement. People who care about originality are people - fixed|
|I mean these are great and all but I see a surprising lack of Destiny Potato|
|____ ___ miles|

|had never heard or even heard of 9 before, but just jammed to the first few tracks of that album - awesome stuff.|

|Love Aeroplane too much to criticize this list.|
|sweet needs godspeed tho|
