Albums That Are Important To Me

Just albums that are important to me, not necessarily music I like just have some significance to me. No particular order. And also share the albums that you deem important to you.
1The Receiving End of Sirens
The Earth Sings Mi Fa Mi

This has been my favourite album for around four years. A place I escape to.
2Pedro The Lion

Just a beautifully melancholy album. Cynicism has never sounded so good. Found
out about this record from an interview with TREOS singer/bassist Brendan Brown.
3Escape The Fate
Dying Is Your Latest Fashion

One of my best friends from college loved this album.
4The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die
Whenever, If Ever

I really beautiful post-rock/emo record. Synthetic nostalgia
5La Dispute

My ex loved this record. Reminds me of a time we hung out a park and I read
some of their lyrics. Don't know if it was very romantic or anything but meh. Great
album too.

This and Mayday Parade remind me of a time when I hung out with my brother
more. Was nice. Going for runs probably not so much but it's probably the closest
I've ever felt to my brother.
To the Ends of the Earth

Great local band. I saw them twice. The hardcore scene in Bay of Plenty used to be
pretty awesome. Go to concerts most months was really great.
8 Ember Days
Finger Painting

Saw this band live, closest I've ever felt to a higher power.
9American Football
American Football

Good album.
10Animals As Leaders

Have a friend who loves rhythms this record always reminds me of him.
11The Antlers
Burst Apart

Prove to me I'm not going to die alone. This was the record one of best friends
played in celebration of her finishing her degree.
12As Cities Burn
Come Now Sleep

Made me okay with doubting my faith my beliefs my everything. Amazing
cathartic record.
13As I Lay Dying
An Ocean Between Us

Would listen to this album ALL the time. Was my go to for metal for ages. I had
my friend download all their discography on his dial up connection... Thanks again
for doing that.
14 Ascend the Hill
Take The World But Give Me Jesus

Only worship I actually really like.
15At The Drive In
Relationship of Command

Another good album.
Why Aren't I Home?

This was the record I cried to a lot. Yay.
Though I'm Alone

This is the record I find solace in when I'm down. Such beautifully dense and
crushing affair.
18The Blood Brothers
Young Machetes

Really inspired me to let go with poetry a bit more. Explore with textures of
description and the like without worrying about making much sense.
19Brand New

Dense and wonderful. Reminds me of when I lived at home.
20 Bright Eyes
Lifted or the Story is in the Soil, Keep Your Ear to the Ground

Raw and impenetrable.
21Bring Me the Horizion
Suicide Season

When I listened to this band I always thought I was edgy and cool. Don't listen to
them anymore but some genuinely touching moments in amongst the youthful
22A Bunny's Caravan
Draining Puddles, Retrieving Treasures

Good album a pity they are no longer a thing.
23Carissa's Wierd
Songs About Leaving

Love everything about this album.
24 The Chariot
Everything Is Alive, Everything Is Breathing, Nothing Is Dead, And Nothing Is Bleeding

I thought my grandma was dying. So when I had to drive home from the hospital
and put this on full in the car. To block out any thoughts.
25Circa Survive
On Letting Go

Loved the cover image. Was desktop background for ages. Music was alright too.
26Circle Takes the Square
As the Roots Undo

Such spastic album. Great lyrics interesting musical choices. This album is my
friends all time favourite. No wonder why.
27The Color of Violence

Reminds me of a simpler time when I used to read AP all the time haha.
You Are My Sunshine

This song represents the warmth I felt in youth group. My anxieties overwhelmed
that eventually.
29 Crows

Amazing local band. Fell in love with them. Their singer is a great guy too.
30The Devil Wears Prada
With Roots Above and Branches Below

Made walking home from school and pretty everything I did epic. In my mind at

I was a big fan of Jonny's vocals. This is my favourite album that he contributed to.
The Question

This album resonated. It was okay for people to believe differently. Seems like a
no brainer but I was rather deluded.
33Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate)
What It Takes To Move Forward

Love this album so much. The emotion always finds its way through. Such a

42Giles Corey
Giles Corey

Haunting as all shit. Also... More Weight.
43 Glassjaw
Worship & Tribute

Another great album.
44Have A Nice Life

Helped me see that all feeling has some purpose.

Born inside the city walls. Born to be a wrecking ball. Born a politicians pawn. Born
to wreck it all.
46Hawthorne Heights
Fragile Future

An album I bought for a friend for their... 17th I don't know. I think they liked it.
Never listened to it myself.
47Hop Along
Get Disowned

All of Tibetan Pop Stars could have come from my head. So relatable. Also her
voice is a god.
48 In Dread Response
In Dread Response

Another amazing local band.
49 Jeremy Soule
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - The Original Game Soundtrack

I've spent a lot of time in Skyrim maybe too much.

Beautiful song. Listened to it on repeat for weeks.
51 Yuki Kajiura
Fate/Zero Soundtrack

Define the Great Line

First album with majority screaming in it that I ever heard. Boy was I
disappointed by a lot of the stuff that I listened to after that.
10,000 Days

Used to be one of my favourite bands. The Pot still rules though.

The Dark, Dark Bright

Reminds me of all times I would go for night walks. So great. My warm breath
smoking into the cold air of night.

creep I was.

Good album. His scream is perfect to me.
57The Sound of Animals Fighting
The Ocean And the Sun

A record store. The back of my friends car. Everyone thought I was gay. Maybe I
Discovering the Waterfront

My best friend from graphics and design loved this album. He doesn't even like
heavier music now. But those times were cool. Doing nothing but listening to
music in class.
59 Thee Silver Mount Zion
"This is Our Punk Rock," Thee Rusted Satellites Gather + Sing

Fucking beast of an album love it to bits. Helped me out of some bad times.
60Say Anything
...Is A Real Boy

I aspire to write poems that are filled with as much self effacing black comedy as
Bemis on this album.
61A Rose By Any Other Name
One for My Master and One For My Dame

Scogin is so great on this record. Monologue Replica is still one of my favourite
songs. My heart is my disease.
62The Receiving End of Sirens
Between the Heart and the Synapse

Heard this album such a long time ago. Such a great record. Still such an
engaging listen.

Late nights studying. Fitter Happier is so haunting.

Days relaxing on the couch. Watching inane TV shows.

brand new eyes

Saw them live it was wonderful. A pity their last album was a shit.
68The Number Twelve Looks Like You

The cover of My Sharona is fucking brilliant. This band scared the shit out of me. I
loved it.

Second metal-core album I got into I think or at least second metal-core band.
Still a great album. And the song titles are quite smart.
70Neutral Milk Hotel
In the Aeroplane Over the Sea

Best lyrics.
71 Moving Mountains

Walking in mud to my classes early in the morning. Beautiful soundtrack to a drab
Catch For Us the Foxes

Each songs resonates so strongly. Lying in my bed in the middle of the night
listening to Christian radio. That was the first time I ever heard them.

Keep You

One of my favourite albums at the moment. Just beautiful.

Christian rock 4eva. This got me into Underoath at least. Still love Amazing
Because It Is such a sucker for rocked up versions of hymnals.

There is no doubt that all of this is a waste of space on the internet here.

I'm lonely someone shoot me.

Thanks for reading my generic as fuck reasons for having shitty taste in music.


Have a great day.

Share yours. That's what I'm most interested in.

Hearing what albums you guys find important for whatever reason.

And because i should have written this on to a word document. I've probably
missed a shit load of albums.

Stay safe.
