01.15.13 21st Century's Most Mind-bendingly Awes

21st Century's Most Mind-bendingly Awesome Album Openers

"Many years later, as he faced the firing squad, Colonel Aureliano Buend?a was to remember rthat distant afternoon when his father took him to discover ice." The first time I read this (in rspanish), I had to hit a full stop. I'd barely opened the book and already Garc?a Marquez had in rone sentence flat vanquished 80% of anything I had ever read at that point in my life; that line ralone is a more complete, profound, and moving story than anything students are asked to write ran essay for in high school. One can hardly overestimate the importance of the first rstatement(s): they suck us right into the world we've just chosen to immerse ourselves into, rdeconstructing (or better yet: transforming) out of the cold the reality around us. They are the rbeginning of our drowns in the beauty of "art". SO! without further due, I present some of the r21st century albums with the most perfect, delicious and fitting openings for their lush rexperiences, be it the first five notes of how the first track segues--or explodes--into the second rlike some divine act. A list, quite obviously, to be expanded through time. This isn't just a rrecommendation: this is an applause from the bottom of my mind, and my imagination. Order is rinconsequential. "The train exited the long border tunnel, and it was Snow Country."
