Albums I'd Like To Live In

Sort of the part 2 to my previous list, these are 10 albums in a rough order which I'd love to live in
1Dave Matthews Band

Just the happiest, summeriest album of all time for me, it brings back great
memories and it has even greater songs on it. The bridge of 'Lie In Our
Graves' is the single minute of music I'd most like to live in, also.
2She & Him
Volume One

Basically an eternal summer, this album is so joyous and so firmly rooted in
the innocence of the 60s that one can't help but swoon longingly.
In Rainbows

The best word I can think of to describe this album is 'warm.' It's just got
such an inviting sound, helped to no end by the production, that I want to
dive into it, the ending of 'Nude' especially.
4Susanne Sundfor
The Brothel

Whilst this might seem like an odd choice to those who have heard it, I'm a
huge fan of noir stylings, and this album has them in bucketloads. It's like a
detective movie from the 40s for the ears, and for that reason I know I'd be
engrossed in it the second I stepped into it's world.
5The Tallest Man On Earth
The Wild Hunt

Whilst a lot of the lyrics on here could be interpreted in less than happy
ways, the overall feel of this album is so redemptive that I can't help but
get a positive vibe from it overall. It's so perfectly evocative of early spring
in terms of atmosphere that it'd be a joy to step into it's world.
6Miles Davis
Kind of Blue

The only problem with living in this album would be the fact that nobody
would get any work done; they'd all be too relaxed, and that's why this
album would be amazing to live in.
7Sufjan Stevens

I'm not necessarily referring to the state of Illinois here, just to living in the
images which Stevens conjures up here. If there's one song I'd like to live
in, it's 'The Predatory Wasp of the Palisades is out to get us!' Probably the
most comforting song of all time.
8LCD Soundsystem
This Is Happening

This might seem like an odd choice, but from the tongue in cheek opening of
Dance Yrself Clean to the resigned, calm vibe at the end of the last track
Home, this album would be a crazy mismash of emotions to live in, but
they're all positive.
9Norah Jones
Feels Like Home

The ultimate winter album, this is such a relaxing, restrained tour de force
of atmosphere that I could quite happily reside in it's world forever.
10Porcupine Tree
Lightbulb Sun

Even though the lyrics here are depressing, they're undeniably redemptive
at points, and the album is the most perfect evocation of bittersweet
nostalgia that one could hope for. So, an odd choice to start this list off
with, but a fitting one nonetheless.
