|Hopefully someone will understand this, lol|
Also, if people are actually gonna do this I will add their ‘perfect’ albums to the list. Of course, if you have to many 5’s, or to few, you can just do this for your favourite 10 albums. Or your favourite 50 albums. I don’t mind, you decide.
|Cool idea. Nice inclusion of Brand New and The National. If I decide to try this, it's going to be so difficult to pick songs because I have a ton of 5's lol. |
|Thanks! Yeah I figured that would be a problem for a lot of people haha. Maybe I should have done this with favourite 10 albums instead of 5's (although that doesn't matter in my case, since I have 9 5's).|
|Demon of the Fall|
|Cool idea. I have to ask though, aren't there individual songs on your 4.5s that might be preferable? Your favourite albums don't necessarily contain the absolute best songs for every position. Of course there'd likely be a very strong correlation.|
I realise that your list doesn't actually say 'favourite songs overall' but 'perfect album' implies it.
P.S. I imagine that if I did this the result would be a jarring mix of stuff that made no sense together, haha
|Yeah I know, this is definitely not what my actual perfect album would look like, but I just wanted to stick with these rules to see what came out of it. Having these restrictions was half the fun. But you're right of course. Perfect might not have been the best word choice.|
|Someone needs to make this a competition. I know Papa Uni's Pure Hell thing is similar but maybe something not quite that complicated lol.|
|So this is definitely a hard one to do. For me, it might be...|
1. King Crimson - '21st Century Schizoid Man'
2. Pink Floyd - 'Welcome To The Machine'
3. Neutral Milk Hotel - 'In The Aeroplane Over The Sea'
4. Nas - 'The World Is Yours
5. King Crimson - 'The Court Of The Crimson King'
6. Bad Religion - 'Anesthesia'
7. Bad Religion - 'Flat Earth Society'
8. Neutral Milk Hotel - 'Oh Comely'
9. Johnny Cash - 'San Quentin'
10. Bob Dylan - 'It's Alright Ma, I'm Only Bleeding'
11. The Notorious B.I.G. - 'Everyday Struggles'
...and then it gets scarce.
|Already have about 1000 pre-made perfect albums|
|Oh this looks rad|
|I cant consider it an album if I'm merging multiple artists, at that point its a playlist, but if we're talking all the same artist I could probably do this.|
|list made me vomit|
|Really cool idea, but damn this would be hard as fuck, especially with the track listing stipulation|
|Demon of the Fall|
|I made a playlist once where it started fairly laid back & even a little 'poppy' in places, ended up heavy af. That was fun.|
It was essentially my favourite songs but in a very specific order.
|So like this is just a perfect mixtape then bc this wouldn’t flow at all |
|1. Teeth like god´s shoeshine (Modest Mouse)|
2. Glow pt.2 (Microphones)/Bloodhail (HANL) Srry this one is too hard
3. A golden dawn (Gospel)
4. Treachery (Unwound)
5. A glass can only spill what it contains (mewithoutYou)
6. Staring Down the Barrel of Limited Options (Off minor)
7. Kicked it in the Sun (Built to Spill)
8. Makeshift Swahilli (This Heat)
9. Quarantined (ATDI)
10. At Home He's A Tourist (Gang of Four)
|This is similar to my numbered album idea. Will prob try later if I remember|
You're right, it's a mixtape, because the flow here is irrelevant. Only did this because it was fun to make, will probably not actually listen to this lol

Bad flow, but it go, it go.
Tried to keep it limited to one track per artist, which wasn't really that hard, but I couldn't deny my mwY tracks.
@Funeralopolis nice, The National's England is one of my favourites as well!
@0GuyMan0 Prayers for Rain never really stood out to me...it gets overshadowed by Fascination Street and The Same Deep Water as You. Still a great song though.
|Also, @RadicalEd and @dbizzles yeah I guess everyone's has an awful flow. Would be a miracle if you followed the 'rules' of this list exactly and somehow put together a cohesive album.|
