|40 Favorite Albums |
These are my 40 favorites as of right now. This is different than what my favorite albums ever are, these are just the one's I'm in love with currently.
|40||The State Lottery|
When the Night Comes
Kind of like Titus Andronicus but with shorter, punchier songs. Oh and with a sweet fucking sax.
I'm finally confident enough to say this is better than You're Living All Over Me.
Once I started to appreciate his voice instead of wincing in pain this became incredible to me. Heart of Gold is a classic.
I still need to check out their new album though I'm not hearing good things which is too bad because this is phenomenal. Great mixture of post rock and indie rock.
|36||The Lawrence Arms|
Just a great punk album.
Really incredible electronic music that's very spacey.
The Last Resort
Really chilled out techno/electronica stuff. Very relaxing.
|33||Boards of Canada|
An album that can simultaneously relax me and freak me the fuck out.
|32||My Morning Jacket|
Right up there with It Still Moves. Dondante is glorious.
|31||Type O Negative|
Another great night time album but it's got a darker, gothic sound. It is very melodic and the dude's low voice is very soothing.
Like a Blaze Above the Ashes
Black Metal that's got poor production, blast beats, tremolo picked guitars, and shrieked vocals. You know the drill but damn do they do it well.
Peter Gabriel>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Phil Collins
My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
I tried to hate him as long as I could but this made it impossible. also Nicki Minaj fucking kills it on Monster.
The Moon is a Dead World
I enjoy my screamo with post-rock like build ups, also how awesome is the drumming here?
Welcome to the Night Sky
Another great night time indie album. Search Party is such a beautiful, somber song.
Fear of a Blank Planet
A pretty dark album with some great songs that are sandwiched around the 17 minute epic Anesthetize. Sentimental is a great song too.
A punk classic. It's like a punk The Wall.
The Man Who Sold the World
Been getting into Bowie lately and this is my favorite so far but I still got a lot of his discography to get through.
The perfect night album. From the opening drones to the epic closer of I Just Turned into a Gas, this album lulls you into a world of great beauty.
So this is my favorite by them. Bloodbuzz Ohio is fantastic.
|20||Alice in Chains|
Jar of Flies
More of an acoustic ep but it is still probably their darkest album. Nutshell is one of the saddest songs ever.
I know it just came out but it's hit me pretty hard as being incredible. Maybe somebody it will even dethrone Mean Everything to Nothing.
I'm pretty picky with what I like as far as rap or hip-hop goes but I really love this.
Boris At Last - Feedbacker
Loud, abrasive, and droning, but there is so much more to it than that. Really is a trip of an album, and just wait for that killer guitar solo.
|15||If These Trees Could Talk|
Above The Earth, Below the Sky
The way Explosions in the Sky wishes they could sound like.
|14||The Gaslight Anthem|
Sink or Swim
If Bruce Springsteen and Against Me! had music babies. I can never decide if I like this or 59 Sound better.
Funeral is better but this is the one I've been enjoying more lately.
Sing the Word Hope in Four-Part Harmony
Just heard this last week and already it's one of my favorites. Great post-rock that's harder hitting than you would think with some electronic elements thrown in for good measure.
|11||My Morning Jacket|
It Still Moves
Southern groove rock with plenty of reverb. One Big Holiday floors me evertime I hear it.
Close to the Edge
As near perfect a prog album can be by a band not called Rush or Pink Floyd.
|9||Coheed and Cambria|
From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness
SSTB is like my favorite album ever but I've been listening to this more lately. It's darker mood really sets it apart from their other albums. Plust The Willing Well suite is like the greatest thing ever.
It?s arguable what the Deftones best album is, and honestly you can make a case for four of them, but I still contend this is their perfect marriage of heaviness and atmosphere.
|7||The Tallest Man on Earth|
The Wild Hunt
The warm weather brings this album out just as it does the green in leaves. A damn near perfect folk album that embodies the summer time for me.
A Farewell to Kings
This Rush kick I?ve been on just won?t go away and that?s ok with me. I actually think Hemispheres is a better album, but the combination of Xanadu and Cygnus X-I being on the same album is kicking my ass right now.
Not being a huge Springsteen fan, I decided to finally check out the album bearing my home state?s name as its title. What I got was a dark acoustic album with Bruce Springsteen?s vocals encompassing all the hard work, heart ache, and the overall mentality of us who populate this rural state.
The Moon & Antarctica
Indie rock done right with plenty of emotion, grandness, and hooks.
So now when I drink I will drink to excess and when I smoke I will smoke gaping holes in my chest.
Mean Everything to Nothing
With the release of Simple Math I had to re-evaluate whether I still thought this was better or not. It is.
Listening to it again for the first time in a while reminded me of its greatness. Great story telling combined with great music in the perfect balance.
