This really took me awhile to turn onto. When it came out, Sputnik showered it with high praise and love, while I didn't see anything to like about it. After about a year and lots of drugs and summer nights later, it's one of my favorites

Endtroducing.....


Another part of the Trip Hop Triforce (not exactly trip hop but sue me), which symbolizes Link's Triforce of Courage. It's astounding how much heart and soul was put into this, it's incredible. It's also one of the albums that made me want to become a producer.

Best punk album ever
11Tool
Lateralus


Do I really need to say anything about this? Every time I listen to this it's a trip
10Neutral Milk Hotel
In the Aeroplane Over the Sea


I don't know what the words mean except being about semen, time machines, and the most famous hide and seek champion ever, but they're catchy as hell and the album is just lots of weird fun
9Catch 22
Keasbey Nights


I would say everything Tomas Kalnoky ever did was gold (well, everything up to SITB anyway...) and this was no exception. A youthful explosion of ska, full of catchy lyrics and bouncing horn patterns, that takes you on a bus trip through the shittiest parts of New Jersey; good thing everyone on the bus is singing along
8Madvillain
Madvillainy


My favorite hip hop album ever. Madlib's production is top notch, and DOOM just kills it. Crazy samples too. Listening to it on vinyl after a long day is always a good time
7Panda Bear
Person Pitch


I've always looked up to Noah Lennox, in a role model type of way. We both play drums, love lush atmospheres, and love cutting up samples. Person Pitch strikes a chord with me unlike many others. I've loved everything about this album from the get go: the undecipherable sounds rolling underneath the mix, the hazy vocal layers, and the catchy songwriting all caught me on first listen. The album also contains some of my favorite samples; from the "I think it's a skateboard" at the beginning of Take Pills, the chordal guitar pattern that strums along the second half of Bros, and the frantic percussion pattern that scares you shitless when Good Girl starts because you're too baked. The second half of the album has some of my favorite atmospheric tracks ever. The album feels like a dream where you're floating through the ocean, and looking at all the beautiful colors of fish and coral. Oh, and WHALES. But yeah, this album is hella sweet
6Massive Attack
Mezzanine


Long before the formation of the now infamous Mezz Crew, I discovered this album while scouring Sputnik just about when I first joined. As a pillar of my "Trip-Hop Triforce" (Trademark pending), this album sits at the top, as a replacement for Ganondorf's Triforce of Power. The album is just dirty, as gritty and dark as the Bristol streets from whence it spawned. Like a dark and gritty noir film, the album bleeds sex, murder, and greed. Every track is phenomenal, between how "Inertia Creeps" emerges from a murky swamp, or "Dissolved Girl's"' blurry memory of a gritty warehouse club. Mezzanine is a monster, one that boasts crushing drum samples, hazy vocals, and mysterious synth lines. It's not hard to see why Sputnik's most notorious pack takes their name from it.
5American Football
American Football


Strangely enough, this was the album that got me into emo, but only after checking it out after I heard Highly Refined Pirates by Minus the Bear. AF's only album is a wonderful mix of mathy drum beats, spinning delayed out tapping riffs, rockout jam sections, and Mike K's oh-so-heartwrenching croons. The album is gorgeous, and never fails to bring even a single tear to your eye. Every song is perfectly fleshed out, and full of brilliant melodies that flitter by. Still to this day it's my favorite Kinsella family related project. Twinkle on, daddies
4Radiohead
Kid A


Man, the had the hardest time getting into Radiohead. A few years back, I was put off listening to them because I had some silly grudge against "pretentious" music. After seeing Kid A's deep love for the album, I tried it out. Unfortunately, I never liked it. That was until my buddy told me to give them another shot. I was hanging at his apartment one night, and after smoking some bud, decided to watch The Blair Witch Project. For whatever reason, my altered state of mind decided that I would put Kid A on during the movie. Now, I can't tell you whether The Blair Witch Project was good, or even what it was about. What I can tell you is that Kid A is a fucking mind blowing masterpiece of an album. Between Jonny G's newfound love for analog synth pads or sequenced drum patterns, Thom's dreamy as ever vocals, or just when the band just decides to rock the hell out, Kid A is always exciting to listen to. I still treat that one night as a near religious experience, and Kid A is now one of my favorite albums ever.
3Boards of Canada
Geogaddi


Geogaddi is a numbing journey into the deepest depths of your subconscious, where you encounter the darkest and most buried shit in your mind. Analog pads create a hazy fog of sound while booming beats thunder around your ears. Indecipherable vocals enter the void, only to add unease to the listener. Despite this, the album is mostly pretty relaxed, but never calming. Despite the laidback, ambient textures, you can't help but feel a sinister aura that fills the air. I also believe BoC were attacked by a demon (a la Tenacious D) while recording it, and they managed to seal it into the saturated tapes the album was recorded onto. When the album isn't sending shivers down your spine, it's lulling you with some of the most gorgeous soundscapes ever produced. Leslie Nielsen's appearance is also a highlight.
2Weezer
Pinkerton


Another flawless album. This one hits hard with me on a personal level, probably due to my extreme feelings of sexual frustration. Rivers' lays it all out on Pinkerton, and that makes it one of the most personable albums ever. "Across the Sea" to "Pink Triangle" is probably the greatest run of songs ever, and hell, "El Scorcho" just might be my favorite song of all time (and not just because the Neon Genesis Evangelion references in the first four lines of the song). The album itself is loud and pushy, but somber and quiet when it needs to be. Singing every word on the album straight through is one of the greatest feelings ever.
1Streetlight Manifesto
Everything Goes Numb


Well, here it is: my favorite album of all time. Everything about it is perfect. This album symbolizes the point in my life where I started looking for my own music to listen to rather than the radio or what my friends liked. Back in the day I found this through a shitty P2P program called Soulseek while redownloading Keasbey Nights. The lyrics are phenomenal, and damn can Tomas talk/ramble fast! Whether he's singing about suicide or robbing a bank, you always feel the need to sing along at the top of your lungs. The musical sections, too, are flawless, with every member playing their hearts out to the best of their ability. The album has plenty of charm, from it's "less than great but fits so well" production, to endless "nanana's" and "heys," and even to a punked out rendition of Brahms' Hungarian Dance #5. This album has stuck with me for over seven years, and I don't see it leaving this spot anytime soon. and c'mon, the whistling in the chorus of "Better Place" is seriously like the best thing ever!
