5.0 classic
Bob Dylan Blood on the Tracks
Bob Dylan Highway 61 Revisited
Bob Dylan Blonde on Blonde
Bob Dylan Bringing It All Back Home
Bon Iver For Emma, Forever Ago
Simultaneously a classic and a breath of fresh air, Bon Iver's first effort is a record that keeps on giving many, many listens later, and can adapt to an equal number of situations. Essential.
Bon Iver Bon Iver, Bon Iver
Very strong sophomore effort. No more needs to be said.
Bruce Springsteen Born to Run
Dave Matthews Band The Central Park Concert
Whilst it's not got their best performances of every song on here, The Central Park Concert is the most exuberantly perfect example of the power of DMB that a new listener could hope for.
Dave Matthews Band Before These Crowded Streets
Destroyer Kaputt
Joanna Newsom Have One on Me
A sprawling tapestry of captivating stories and sounds, Have One On Me is endlessly inviting, and infuriatingly undecipherable, and it is, most importantly, a complete success.
John Coltrane A Love Supreme
John Mayer Continuum
John Mayer Heavier Things
John Mayer Where the Light Is
Kanye West My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
One of the most self-indulgent, over the top albums of recent times; it's really the kind of thing that only West, prone to douchebaggery as he is, could pull off with such style.
Metallica ...And Justice for All
Miles Davis Kind of Blue
Nizlopi Half These Songs Are About You
Paul Simon Graceland
Radiohead Kid A
Radiohead In Rainbows
Shpongle Nothing Lasts... But Nothing Is Lost
Astonishingly accomplished IDM, this album would probably be a 5 if I was an ent.
Sufjan Stevens Illinois
The Beach Boys Pet Sounds
The Tallest Man on Earth The Wild Hunt
The Tallest Man on Earth Sometimes The Blues Is Just A Passing Bird
It might only be 5 songs long, but every single second here is perfect.
The Tallest Man on Earth There's No Leaving Now
Tool Lateralus
Tool Aenima
A murky, intimidating maze of an album, but once you uncover its secrets it reveals itself as probably one of the most fascinating, furious and fundamentally brilliant albums of its genre, and music as a whole.
Tosca Tango Orchestra Waking Life OST

4.5 superb
Arcade Fire Funeral
Quintessential indie listening, a truly emotional album with only a few weak moments.
Arctic Monkeys Whatever People Say I Am, That's What...
Art Blakey Moanin'
Bersarin Quartett Bersarin Quartett
Bill Evans Waltz for Debby
Bob Dylan The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan
Bob Dylan Street Legal
Bohren & Der Club Of Gore Sunset Mission

Destroyer Destroyer's Rubies
Devin Townsend Project Deconstruction

Dixie Chicks Taking The Long Way
Dream Theater Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes from a Memory
Dream Theater Images and Words
Duke Ellington The Far East Suite
Fat Freddy's Drop Dr. Boondigga & The Big BW
Fleet Foxes Helplessness Blues
A glorious, earthy album that really sees Fleet Foxes ascending into the upper echelon of their fiercely competitive genre.
Fleetwood Mac Rumours
Flying Lotus Cosmogramma
Frank Ocean Channel Orange
Godspeed You! Black Emperor Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas...
Tracks 1, 2 and 3 are some of the most wonderful pieces of music ever composed, whereas the final track falls a bit short of the preceding greatness.
Gospel The Moon Is a Dead World
The most energetic, impassioned and apocalyptic sounding album I've heard in a long time, based on the way in which the members of Gospel throw themselves into their music you'd think they had only minutes left to live.
Green Day American Idiot
Guru Jazzmatazz, Vol. 1
Have a Nice Life Deathconsciousness
James Blake James Blake
James Blake Klavierwerke
Jeff Buckley Grace
Joanna Newsom Ys
John Coltrane Giant Steps
John Frusciante The Empyrean
John Mayer Battle Studies
Kashiwa Daisuke Program Music I
Keith Jarrett The Köln Concert
Laura Stevenson Sit Resist
LCD Soundsystem Sound of Silver
A masterclass in modern electronic music; it might not offer much that's new, but it manages to use all of the best ideas from various genres throughout the decade, and combines them into one glorious whole.
Metal Gear Solid Metal Gear Solid Soundtrack
Metallica Load
Metallica Death Magnetic
Metallica Master of Puppets
Metallica S&M
Miles Davis Bitches Brew
Miles Davis The Complete In a Silent Way Sessions
Miles Davis In a Silent Way

Norah Jones Feels Like Home
Oasis (What's the Story) Morning Glory?
Oasis Definitely Maybe
Opeth Watershed
Oscar Peterson Night Train
Paul Simon Paul Simon
Pearl Jam Ten
Screw Nirvana and Alice In Chains, Pearl Jam's Ten was the perfect marriage of classic rock sensibilities with the emerging grunge trends, and remains a classic to this day.
Pink Floyd The Dark Side of the Moon
Porcupine Tree Fear of a Blank Planet
Nigh-on perfect modern prog, it only just misses the perfect mark.
Porcupine Tree Deadwing
Porcupine Tree Lightbulb Sun
Radiohead OK Computer
Radiohead Hail to the Thief
Scott Walker The Drift
I have absolutely no idea what to make of this yet. Will report back later...

Sufjan Stevens Michigan
Susanne Sundfor The Brothel
Sweet Trip Velocity : Design : Comfort
The Avalanches Since I Left You
The Beatles Abbey Road
The Dear Hunter The Color Spectrum (Complete Collection)
The Knife Silent Shout
A disturbing, eerie beast of an electronic album, but without enough musical and lyrical depth to make you want to return to it again, and again, and again.
The Mountain Goats Tallahassee
The National High Violet
A stunning continuation of form from The National, but it just loses out to Boxer due to having a couple of tracks that start to feel worryingly like filler.
The National Boxer
The Rolling Stones Exile on Main St.
The Rolling Stones Let It Bleed
The Tallest Man on Earth Shallow Grave
Thomas Dybdahl ...That Great October Sound
Thomas Dybdahl One Day You'll Dance for Me, New York City
A gorgeous blend of minimalistic folk with some breathtaking atmospheric, almost poppy moments, this is Dybdahl's most cohesive release to date, if not his best.

Thrice The Alchemy Index Vols. I & II
Thrice Vheissu
Thrice Major/Minor

WU LYF Go Tell Fire to the Mountain

4.0 excellent
...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead Tao of the Dead
A Perfect Circle Thirteenth Step
A Tribe Called Quest The Low End Theory
Agalloch Ashes Against the Grain
Animal Collective Merriweather Post Pavilion
A freak-pop album that toes a dangerously thin line between genius arrangements, and simply obnoxious 'noise,' often both in the same song.

Arctic Monkeys Humbug

An incredibly solid, if predictable, prog rock epic. Crammed full of cheesy but great riffs, The Whirlwind is an incredibly enjoyable listen, if not an emotionally moving one in the slightest.
