5 Album Music Taste Summary

If you only had 5 albums to encapsulate the entirety of your music taste, what 5 albums would you pick? These don't necessarily have to be your 5 favorite, just the 5 albums that you feel would best get across to your music taste to someone who had no knowledge of your taste.
1The Red Chord
Fused Together in Revolving Doors


While this album isn't even a 5 for me, it really contains many of my favorite things about metal and does a great job of combining two of my favorite genres, metalcore and death metal.
2Elliott Smith
Either/Or


No list about my music taste would be complete without this album. I really enjoy a lot of downtempo, acoustic, folky, sad shit like Carissa's Wierd, Sufjan Stevens, Songs: Ohia, and others. I feel this album really represents that style well.
3Eyedea and Abilities
By the Throat


This album was my major introduction to hip-hop. I had listened to a few albums here and there, but this really piqued my interest in the genre. It had emotional depth that I hadn't heard before and instrumentation that I hadn't heard before either. This album introduced me to artists like Atmosphere, Brother Ali, Aesop Rock, and other similar artists and while I don't listen to them as often as I used to, that style is still an important in the narrative of my music taste.
4I Hate Myself
10 Songs


One of my very favorite screamo albums that take many of my favorite parts of screamo along with some strong elements of emo as well. Just a really summative album of my taste.
5Jimmy Eat World
Static Prevails


This last album was a tough choice, but I went with this because I feel like 10 Songs covers some ground with the more traditional side of emo, so if I picked a more traditional emo album (The Power of Failing, for example), the more modern emo would be misrepresented. So I picked a bit of a middle ground. I love this album to death and I feel it represents both sides of the coin of emo pretty well.
