have some significance to me. No particular order. And also share the
albums that you deem important to you.

The Earth Sings Mi Fa Mi

some of their lyrics. Don't know if it was very romantic or anything but meh. Great
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

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.

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.
