Albums I've Dug The Most. (last 5 Years)

Not a list of the greatest albums of the last 5 years, just the ones I've listened to over and over again to.
20 Modest Mouse
No One's First, and You're Next


Kind of subpar but the only material they have released in the last 5.
19 Death Cab For Cutie
Open Door EP


Short and sweet, some really good tracks on this EP.
18The Heavy
The House That Dirt Built


Other than hearing "How you like me now" in about 25 commercials, This album rocked and had a true throwback feel to it.
17Minus The Bear
Infinity Overhead


Album #2 of MTB's electro-pop transition. Some great guitar work from Knudson but overall a so-so album from one of my favorite bands.
16Minus The Bear
Omni


MTB venture into Electro-pop. Some really strong songs but a far cry from P.O.I.
15 Portugal. The Man
In the Mountain, In the Cloud


For mr this was an album that sounded great the first listen but not many songs had staying power. That said, no bad songs on the album either.
14Death Cab For Cutie
Codes and Keys


These guys are getting really good at producing indie-pop albums that anyone can like without being too generic.
13P.O.S.
We Don't Even Live Here


P.O.S. goes for a more "club" sound and does it better than most. In a weird way this could be looked at as either his strongest or weakest album. No Filler, but IMO no GREAT tracks either.
12Arctic Monkeys
Humbug


Arctic Monkey's + Josh Homme= Really catchy stoner rock.
11Portugal. The Man
The Satanic Satanist


Super strong album, If I had a real beef with it, it would be that too many songs sound like "single quality".
10Astronautalis
This is Our Science


Clever blend of hip hop and indie. Excellent songs and lyrics and even better execution and production.
9Built To Spill
There Is No Enemy


This band is awesome, everything they do is awesome, that is all.
8Pearl Jam
Lightning Bolt


The only grunge band left with almost all of their original lineup still making great new music. (Soundgarden's new one was pretty good too)
7Against Me!
Transgender Dysphoria Blues


Most of us agree, we miss the old Against Me!. However, this is a great comeback album even if it is a little polished.
6Danny Brown
Old


Never been much for rap from the streets, but Danny does a great job of taking a fresh approach to it and his lyrics are personal which makes him seem like a human being rather than some "rap god".
5Sims
Bad Time Zoo


I love Sims flow and lyrical content. "Future Shock" is one of my favorite hip hop songs ever. He is not super talented but his content and attention to detail makes up for it.
4Silversun Pickups
Swoon


I always thought these guys were a pumpkins rip-off band, and they kind of are. Don't crucify me for this but I think Swoon may be better than Siamese Dream, Just sayin.
3 Arctic Monkeys
A.M.


Arctic Monkeys perfected their QOTSA infused sound with a near perfect album.
2P.O.S.
Never Better


This album got me listening to rap again, hence why a good portion of this list is hip hop. Just a wonderful, creative, well executed album. This put Doomtree on the map for me.
1Portugal. The Man
Evil Friends


Maybe it's just cause it's still farily new to me. But I listen to this album at least once a week and I just love it. Lyrics, production, musicianship, and recurring themes seals this concept album as #1 for me in the last 5.
