Classic albums I haven't heard PART TWO

I accidentally deleted the last list. I also finished typing out this whole list, and then instead of hitting refresh, I accidentally hit back. So I don't want to type out the entire thing again. But I persist!
1Panda Bear
Person Pitch


While trying to edit my previous list to include my opinion on this album, I accidentally deleted the list. So I blame Panda Bear for that. But the album is good, okay? I'm just tired.
2Madvillain
Madvillainy


I think this is also good. It was absolutely amazing on my first listen, and while it weakened on me on other listens, I still think it's wonderful.
3Oxbow
An Evil Heat


Done. I listened to this alongside the new Oxbow album, and I think those two albums are on pretty much the same level. Both contain very unintelligible lyrics. But the main difference is how primal this one sounds. I can make out even less words, and there's more growling and shrieking to be heard.
4Four Tet
Rounds


Done. I didn't think Rounds was a spectacular album, in any way, but it sounds really refreshing. It gets even more impressive when you remember the whole album is comprised of entirely sampling. These samples are arranged in a really unique way. I've been listening to Four Tet's more recent output as well, and I think this Rounds era has been the peak of his work.
5Aphex Twin
...I Care Because You Do


Done. I've heard people say this is relaxing, people say this is pretty freaky, and I definitely lean more on the relaxing side. On top of that, a lot of the songs sound the same. When listened to in one sitting, I occasionally can't tell two songs apart. However, this definitely sounds revolutionary for the mid-90s. I give James props for that.
6Melt-Banana
Cell-Scape


Done. Although I enjoyed Cell-Scape, it didn't make me want to come back to it repeatedly. It sounded like a barrage of noise, which is not inherently bad, but I felt that it was lacking substance. It was difficult to pick out standout tracks, the outro wasn't necessary. I guess it was just a meh album.
7Queen
A Night At The Opera


Done. It's all very good! Sometimes songs get cheesy, like Seaside Rendezvous, or the song that literally mentions being a sweet like some kind of cheese. But I don't think a lot of Bohemian Rhapsody fans treasure this whole album enough. The Prophet's Song is phenomenal, and the long stretch in the middle is done particularly well. A lot of technical skill shines on this album.
8Squarepusher
Hard Normal Daddy


Done. This is a very, very good album. It takes all the best parts of the IDM/breakbeat scene and melds them together using superb bass-playing skills. This is such a good album to zone out too, as well. I was already a fan of Squarepusher before I heard this, but I appreciate him even more now.
9Steve Reich
Music For 18 Musicians


Done. This album is a real experience, and it sounds like it's only meant to be played as a whole. I've never been able to probably use the word "transcend" when describing music, but listening to this tunes absolutely everything else out. It does sound like you're in an entirely different place. When I closed my eyes, I was able to follow certain instruments like they were people. Each key change was a different stop in a large land. Every moment is beautiful.
10Flying Lotus
Cosmogramma


Done. What a cohesive, spectacular album this is. It's only the second FlyLo album I've heard, the other being You're Dead! and I think this is better than that. The first ten seconds of the first track is so repeatable just in its own right, too. My favorite tracks are probably Do The Astral Plane and Satelllliiiiiiiteee.
11Matmos
The Rose Has Teeth in the Mouth of a Beast
12Nine Inch Nails
The Downward Spiral


I've already heard every song on here, just not in one front-to-back sitting.

23LCD Soundsystem
Sound Of Silver


Done. I actually liked this a bit less than American Dream, which I listened to around the same time as this. I like the grooves on it, and my favorite tracks are probably Get Innocuous! and Us V Them. But I still think American Dream is much more full than this. I wonder if there's another LCD Soundsystem album I'll like more than this.
