5.0 classic
Madvillain Madvillainy
Neutral Milk Hotel In the Aeroplane Over the Sea
R.E.M. Automatic for the People
The Microphones The Glow Pt. 2
I don't give out 5s lightly, but while I can't call this a perfect album, I can't think of a single thing I'd change about it. The yawning spaces in the middle don't drag for me; they push the album's mystique up and leave it in a unique place. I love the way it's all jagged edges and seemingly half-finished tunes after those first three fully formed songs, and the production continues to amaze.

4.5 superb

Danny Brown XXX
Alternately over-the-top, terrifying, unhinged, disgusting, and exhilarating, sometimes all five at once, with appropriately oppressive production and even a story of sorts. A couple duds or painful tracks can't keep it from being an overwhelming success.

The Decemberists The Tain
Five songs in one, rock solid for all eighteen minutes. Stylistically varied, lyrically impressive, retells a Celtic epic myth, AND it's catchy as hell.
