String Arrangements Rule

You know what makes a good song better - a boss string arrangement. I love it, gives me feels like nothing else and works in all genres. Some of the below might be synth strings but I don’t care, fake strings are still real feels.
1Massive Attack
Blue Lines


Yes.
Unfinished Sympathy.
2The Smashing Pumpkins
Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness


Tonight, Tonight with a string arrangement so beautiful it hides how bad the chorus vocals are!
3Emperor
Prometheus: The Discipline of Fire...


Whole album has beautiful arrangements littered throughout but that intro to The Eruption is perfect.
4Guns N' Roses
Use Your Illusion I


GNR might not have been cool for a long time but November Rain is undeniably beautiful.
5Agnes Obel
Aventine


Wouldn’t be a list of mine without Agnes but the arrangement on The Curse holds its own with anything.
6Cradle of Filth
Damnation and a Day


‘Hey Dani mate, a lot of the black metal community reckon you sold out with Midian being too polished, how will you respond?’
‘Well mate, I’m gonna sign to Sony and hire a 36 piece orchestra’
Another one with great arrangements throughout but I’m gonna recommend I Thank God For The Suffering.
7Funeral for a Friend
Casually Dressed & Deep in Conversation


Great album with a beautiful little number towards the end Your Revolution Is A Joke
8Casualties of Cool
Casualties of Cool

12System of a Down

Chop Suey!
Absolutely epic chorus production
13Radiohead
In Rainbows


Nude
Plenty of nice strings from Radiohead but this ones my favourite
14The Ocean
Precambrian


The whole second disk that starts of with a wandering sax is ace
15Mew
Frengers
16Lana Del Rey
Born to Die


Video Games
17Coheed and Cambria
From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness


Welcome Home
18Arcade Fire
Funeral


Wake Up

(What's the Story) Morning Glory?


Wonderwall. I’ve heard the song way too many times now but the arrangement here is so good.
