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
Crash


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.
3Radiohead
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
Illinois


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.
