The Best Twelve

My favourite albums as of now, only one album per artist. Hope this interests rsomeone rsomewhere or at least encourages people to listen any of this.rThe explanations a re rpretty much the same thing repeated but I am quite single rminded in what I look for in rmusic so there you go.
1The Receiving End of Sirens
The Earth Sings Mi Fa Mi


No matter how many times I listen to this it never gets boring. First heard this in my local cd store in and bought it because I liked their first album. It took a while for me to fall for it. I had my favourite songs but one day it clicked and it became the only thing I listened to. Everything else I've listened to still pales in comparison. It might not be the most original album out there and perhaps it is a bit homogeneous in its overall sound but nothing else has spoken to me in the same way and as consistently. The dense production the brilliant lyrics the multiple vocal melodies. My favourite album no doubt.
2Underoath
Lost In the Sound of Separation


Underoath. My first "screamo" band. My friend had burnt me copies of TOCS and DtGL. I thought it was pretty cool. One of them was a disc that couldn't be read by anything but my DVD player. I knew my grandma wouldn't be too into that kind of music. I have memories of kneeling in front of the TV with the volume down just enough to hear it. Then finally got a proper of copy of DtGL and it blew my mind. Lost in the Sound of Separation was everything I expected and more. My grandma bought it for me after I had explained that they were a Christian band. It has awesome complex grooves. Great vocals from Spencer and Aaron. Sporadic drumming. And a great amount of experimentation and most of all heart. Still my favourite album from them.
3mewithoutYou
Catch For Us the Foxes


All their albums are exceptional. But "January 1979". That song speaks to me on so many different levels. The rest of the album is just as good. Aaron's lyrics are amazing. That about covers that.
4Thrice
Beggars


Varied yet consistent and full of emotion. Dustin's voice is the best. Raw and emotional.
5Manchester Orchestra
Mean Everything To Nothing


Andy Hull is a brilliant vocalist/song writer, and no where is it more obvious than MEtN. Shake it Out is just brilliant all the way through, catchy yet so powerful.
6As Cities Burn
Come Now Sleep


This is one of those albums that you can not go through one whole listen without feeling something. For me it is always in the ending of Timothy. Cody's vocals aren't for everyone but I love them, filled with grief and desperation, his thin whine just breaks my heart (yeah I am aware of how cheesy that sounds). Beautiful in its doubt and sorrow. Probably my second favourite record.
7The Felix Culpa
Sever Your Roots


This is one is a work of art. Dark and rich. Dense and sporadic. I'm probably just reusing words but a lot of these records do very similar things. But the Felix Culpa man they just make everything super epic. Forlorn chants, brilliant guitar riffs and even haunting violin. This record has it all.
8Brand New
Daisy


The first Brand New album I ever heard. Man I definitely jumped in my set when Vices came on in proper. The car just began to blast this amazing noise. Their other albums are really good and I almost put TDaG on this list but Daisy will always have way more impact for me. Just a great noisy record. Jesse Lacey is perfect vocalist regardless of whether he's screaming or singing.
9 O'Brother
Garden Window


I wanted a bigger more epic Fire era Thrice. O'Brother delivered. Tanner has a brilliant voice very much reminiscent of Dustin's earthy tones. And now that Thrice have begun a hiatus O'Brother fill the gap for me nicely.
10Pedro The Lion
Control


Slow and depressing. The lyrics on this thing are just so good. He says it like it is and the story of man cheats wife kills him is the perfect backdrop for Bazan's study of life, death, desire, religion and corporate politics.
11La Dispute
Wildlife


Tracks like King Park and Edward Bens 27 Times are just so heart breaking it hurts even more knowing that they're 100 percent true. La Dispute do these people and their stories a great service in bringing the listener into their world so that we may share in their pain through what some may is over dramatic music but I think is just fine. Raw and unyielding, yet not afraid to explore a path that isn't just crazed noodling like on their first release. A great show of how art can contribute to a community by exposing and revealing the stories that take place there. I feel Dreyer is making a direct response to how news outlets are so insensitive towards death and tragedy. This album doesn't remedy that but it goes some way to making the voices of its subjects heard and more importantly felt and that is what makes this album so beautiful. It gives people a voice, Dreyers emotive scream/shout but a voice none the less.
12Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate)
What It Takes To Move Forward


Yes it has now usurped Scogin... My favourite emo record. Just makes me feel so sad. And that is a good thing if you haven't already figured from the previous albums. Keith Latinen's lyrics are always on the ball as well. Other albums that should be on this list. In the Aeroplane Over the Sea. and The World Is...'s debut. And probably millions I haven't heard yet. Or have neglected unfairly.
