Rec me sad albums

Hit me up with your most evocative tearjerkers
1The Antlers
Hospice


This is right on the mark...
2Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds
Skeleton Tree


...and so is this.
3Slint
Spiderland


The estrangement on this is kinda sad in the way I'm looking for.
4Leonard Cohen
Songs of Leonard Cohen


Not so interested in this kind of moroseness (for the purposes of this list, anyway)
5Unwound
Leaves Turn Inside You


Same goes for the bleakness/gradual depression of this.
6Kayo Dot
Coyote


And this - no complex compositional exercises; I want evocative, personal music in an immediately recognisable sense.
7The Flaming Lips
The Soft Bulletin


Bittersweet vibes are very much welcome
8Anathema
Judgement


...but not sombre woe-is-me vibes (although feel free to rec anything that has the same effect or impact as this album)
9Agalloch
The Mantle


I guess pronounced melancholy vibes are good too.
