welcome back boys
51Austin Peralta
Endless Planets

rip don't do drugs kids i mean they killed Austin Peralta
50Hotel Books
This is All We Have

usually i don't like overly romantic spoken word but this comp in particular is fantastic; some of the rest of Cam's stuff isn't that great but this is. seen Cam live and he is intense.

this whole skramzy post-metal thing is pretty cool i guess
48The Bouncing Souls

this recording sounds fucking intense
To Be Kind

"oxygen" has the best groove ever. insanely fun to play on bass.

so short but so good. i actually like the Tancred debut better than any of Now, Now's albums https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KbE0kGhXuXY
45 Do Make Say Think
You, You're a History in Rust

second fave post rock band after Godspeed
44Eric Dolphy
Out to Lunch

36, dude. 36. my god. btw is it just a coincidence that he happened to be on some of Coltrane, Hill, Hubbard and Mingus' best records, if not their ABSOLUTE best?
43 Sundials

40maudlin of the Well

Guilty of Everything

shoegaze bands with punk visual aesthetics are generally pretty good. the bass player is especially punk, yea
38 Clubroot
Clubroot (III - MMXXII)

35Yoshino Yoshikawa
Yumetatsu Glider

32Stars of the Lid
The Tired Sounds of Stars of the Lid

31flower face

ruby is 16. seriously. https://flowerface.bandcamp.com/
Spiritual State

nujabes actually has the power to bring me to tears

looking for that fossil link between hardcore and skramz

gorgeous. like maudlin's "bath", i have so much stake in this album emotionally. sent me off to sleep on really terrible nights and helped me find clarity on really terrible days.
Satisfaction Feels Like a Tomb

this fucking record dude
26Natalie Evans

love her style. she also does a great owen cover. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wlN08BgH7ME
25Bomb the Music Industry!
Goodbye Cool World!

yea i guess this top 25 is gonna be all really awesome albums even though there's also been some of my absolute fave albums ever in the previous 75 entries. go read my soundoff to see how i feel about this album.
Double Nickels on the Dime

probably my fave instrumental unit from the '80s
23The Tallest Man on Earth
The Wild Hunt

not seeing this man live at the Festival Hall in 2012 was probably one of the biggest mistakes of my life https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FIrFrjCm4x8
22J Dilla

jazz trio cover! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4oG18f1n5kw
21Laura Stevenson

waiting for a Jeff + Laura tour in Australia and then they pick up Keegan in Brisbane for an impromptu Bomb reunion
20Tigers on Trains

occasionally, this album penetrates me in the exact same way that it did when i was fourteen and more alone than i'd ever been. "death is not a curse / it's the only thing that's keeping us alive"
19Bad Brains
Bad Brains

as much as my favourite instrumental unit in the punk '80s was the minutemen, these guys are probably the most talented
18Built to Spill
Keep It Like a Secret

this thing turned on the second the Jeff Rosenstock/Wil Wagner show was over and someone shouted "YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH" and it was a perf moment
17LCD Soundsystem
The Long Goodbye

as much as i love that their final show got a proper audio treatment, i'm disappointed that James cut out a bunch of stuff like most his speech on "New York"
16The Arrogant Sons of Bitches
Three Cheers for Disappointment

an album i can listen to regardless of whether i'm happy or sad or anything dude
15Red Hot Chili Peppers
Stadium Arcadium

this album has so many of their best songs ever. best one is probs "hey" because y'know best groove AND THEN THAT BRIDGE COMES IN
14Direct Hit!
Brainless God

freaking epic
13William Basinski
The Disintegration Loops

i listen to this very loudly
12The Microphones
The Glow Pt. 2

an ideal record for my musical tastes. me to a tee though it lacks my obvious tendency towards punk.
11Electric Wizard

drrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrmDIUUUUUUUdrmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmDIUDADIUDIUDIUDADADIUDIUDIUDIUDIUdadadoooooooooooooooooomdooooooooooooomdadiuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu (translation: slow rumbling heavy stoner riffs that shake me to my bones)
10DJ Shadow

gets me dancing
9The Weakerthans
Live at Burton Cummings Theatre

"whyyyyyyyyyyyy / why can't I draw right up to what I want to saaaaaaaaaaaaaay? / why can't I ever stop when I want to stay?" gets me every single time in a way that no song's chorus probably ever will come close to

used to come home worn out and just lie next to my record player for an hour listening to this thing front-to-back.
7 Owen
I do perceive

favourite singer-songwriter, personally.
6The Mountain Goats
All Hail West Texas

i'd just like to remark that if you haven't heard "ethiopians" you are neither a mountain goats fan nor have you lived a second of your life https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uO1iXORTx18
Jane Doe

jake's lyrics on this record are actually essential poetry
4Godspeed You! Black Emperor
F#A# (Infinity)

best melodies yo.
3Charles Mingus
The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady

way too good. like waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too good. that one man composed this thing is insane.
2 The Wonder Years
Suburbia I've Given You All and Now I'm

i'm pretty sad that they cancelled their Aussie tour because now they're on an overly expensive mega-tour and the sideshows will probably be 18+
1Neutral Milk Hotel
In the Aeroplane Over the Sea
