Rated My Entire CD Collection

Spent a weekend rating all the albums I currently own. I only hit 305, rpretty sad, but hopefully rrI can get to at least 1,000 by the end of the ryear. List is albums I could listen to for the rest of rrmy life. Happy rSunday!
1Brand New
The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Me


One of the few albums I might be willing to call perfect. TDAGARIM harmoniously balances the softer sides of Deja and the rougher aspects of Brand New that would come with Daisy in a way that is unstoppably powerful and emotional.
2 Bob Dylan
The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan


What more can I say? One of Bob Dylan's best, and my personal favorite.
3Paul Baribeau
Paul Baribeau


No artist has ever written with as much uninhibited honesty and passion as Paul Baribeau does on his first release. His lyrics are so simple, and yet so incredibly meaningful; it's a feat not many could pull off.
4Neutral Milk Hotel
In The Aeroplane Over The Sea


I know it's almost cliche to put this album on a top ten albums list, but fuck, it's just so good. The melody when Jeff Mangum sings "We will take off our clothes/And they'll be placing fingers through the notches in your spine" gets me every single time. This is the most underrated overrated album of all time.
5Neil Young
Harvest


Neil Young was my first concert ever, when I was in the 3rd grade. It was more my dad's doing than mine, but thank god he dragged me along. This album for me encompasses everything that is great about Neil Young. An album that never fails to make me smile.
6Tom Waits
Closing Time


I'm planning on rating all my favorite Tom Waits later this week, so this is a bit of a teaser. Not necessarily the best Tom Waits album, but Closing Time is the one I love the most, mostly because it's just so different from anything else he ever did. And it's not just the FACT that it's different, but that he is able to pull off something like this so successfully that makes it appealing. It's a side of Tom that we never really see again, but is every bit as intriguing as his other work.
7The Stone Roses
The Stone Roses


My favorite album to dance to. Such a fun record, and completely unique as well. It's a shame the Stone Roses weren't ever able to fully replicate this greatness.
8Red Hot Chili Peppers
By The Way


I grew up on the Chili Peppers, and this album in my mind will always be their masterpiece (perhaps partially due to nostalgia). A record that reminds me of childhood and old friends that I could sit and listen to forever.
9La Dispute
Wildlife


It took me a while to choose these last two records, mostly because there's so much music that I love. But I think La Dispute's newest release is one of the most incredibly passionate works of music I've ever heard. It's a record that is so brutal, so deep, that I don't think I'll ever fully comprehend it in it's entirety. I'm ready for the shit storm of people who don't agree, but for me this is an album I see myself listening to and loving for the rest of my life.
10Biffy Clyro
Blackened Sky


And finally... I debated a long time between Jimmy Eat World's Clarity and this album, but I think ultimately this is the one I prefer. After I saw Biffy Clyro live, I listened to this album non stop for at least two weeks. The emotions that it evoked dug into me so deep that I didn't feel like I could listen to anything else. A record I recommend to absolutely everyone.
