Albums With Immense Beauty

Some albums that really click with me.
1Carissa's Wierd
Songs About Leaving


This slow-moving album takes an emotional toll on the listener, through 40
minutes of piano and violin driven sad, sad indie rock. A captivating album born
from the emotions of the band members. There's nothing more that I could ask
for.
2Explosions In The Sky
The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place


Some people claim that this album is boring. I see it as calming. There is
nothing more soothing on after a long, stressful day, than lying down and
listening to this album as you let your emotions out.
3Cloudkicker
Let Yourself Be Huge


This album is tranquility. All the songs on here are wonderful and beautiful.
4Brian Eno
Ambient 1: Music For Airports


Airports Are A Beautiful Place And I Am No Longer Afraid To Fly
5elvis depressedly
save the planet kill yourself


Drug influenced ambient soundscapes that will soothe your nerves.
6Teen Suicide
hymns


The last thing this band put out. No more garage rock, no more upbeat
songs, just broken and beaten souls.
7Merchant Ships
For Cameron


One of the only albums that has made me cry. To be fair, it was during a
very emotional moment, but still, this album was on, I was crying, there you
go.
8 Modest Mouse
This Is A Long Drive For Someone With Nothing To...


Isaac was a sad sappy sucker.
9Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate)
What It Takes To Move Forward


Beautiful lyrics, beautiful music.
10Deafheaven
Sunbather


People don't like this album because they want it to be something it's not. I
love it because it has everything I look for in music.
11Crywank
James Is Going To Die Soon


The soundtrack to a painful break-up.
12Radiohead
Kid A


Ten wonderful songs that emanate beauty.
13Saetia
Saetia


Poetic lyrics and expressive music meld together into an incredibly beautiful
screamo album.
14Slint
Spiderland


I MISS YOU!
15Teen Suicide
Waste Yrself


An album about wasting away, decaying from apathy, letting your lack of
caring take over your life. Drugs, sleep, death, the symbolism on this thing
is incredible, and it's all topped off with Sam Ray's sweet, sweet voice.
16Suffocate For Fuck Sake
Blazing Fires And Helicopters On The Fro


Narrative post-rock with occasional heavy bits.
17Ricky Eat Acid
Three Love Songs


Marry me Sam Ray.
18Thee Silver Mount Zion
He Has Left Us Alone...


Perhaps the saddest album that Efrim Menuck has worked on. Violin, piano,
even singing, these three members of Godspeed You! Black Emperor have
created one of the most beatiful post-rock albums out there.
19I Wrote Haikus About Cannibalism...
Discography


Dreamy screamo, with tons of emotion. Yum.
20Yaphet Kotto
The Killer Was In The Government Blankets


Nothing quite like 90s emo.
21Gris
A lame Enflammee, lame Constellee


Depressive black metal from Quebec with wonderful acoustic bits and jaw-
dropping heavy bits.
22Age Sixteen
Open Up Finders, Please


It's like Suis La Lune with a black singer. So yeah, it's pretty awesome.
23Daitro
Laisser Vivre Les Squelettes


The french know how it's done.
24Mogwai
Young Team


With songs like Yes! I Am A Long Way From Home, R U Still Into It, Tracy,
and Mogwai Fear Satan, it would be a challenge not to be soothed and
moved by this spectacular post-rock classic.
25Suis La Lune
Heir


Post-rock and screamo is an emotional combination.
26Beau Navire
Hours


Emotional, hard-hitting, beautiful, intense, this album has it all.
27Jose Phine
Demo


Oh, Mexico.
28Mogwai
Come On Die Young


Early Mogwai beats most things.
29God Is An Astronaut
All Is Violent, All Is Bright


Simple post-rock with huge emotional impact.
30This WIl Destroy You
Young Mountain


Music that soothes, music that moves.
31Studying
Sophomoronic


The sound of sad youth is one that affects me personally more than most
things.
32Malon
Portraits Of Dying


When you stay inside too much.
33The Brave Little Abacus
Just Got Back From The Discomfort


Songs of a broken man, guided by well-executed emo instrumentals.
34Warren of Ohms
Untitled


Wonderfully written lyrics and techincal guitar-work make for one of the
greatest user-created albums on this website.
35Gospel
The Moon Is A Dead World


Not the saddest or the most tragic album, but the beauty here is
undeniable.
36Self Defense Family
Try Me


Pretentious? Maybe a little. Unique and moving? Definitely.
37Envy
All The Footprints You've Ever Left...


A Japanese post-rock/screamo album with triumphant moments of beauty.
38Flowers In Gun Barrels
Discography


The first project from Nolan Arthur, with heartfelt screams and ambient
interludes, this discography has some of his most emotional work.
39...Who Calls So Loud
...Who Calls So Loud


Post-rock and screamo is an emotional combination. [2]
40Captain, We're Sinking
The Future Is Cancelled


This may seem like a strange choice, but I can't get through the album
without being moved, and I can't even sing the line "Jesus Christ I'm not what
you had in mind. Jesus Christ, don't cry." without my voice breaking.
41Cloudkicker
Subsume


More beautiful work from Ben Sharp.
42Gris
Il Etait une Foret...


With some of the most emotional vocals in black metal, this album can certainly
be described as depressive.
43American Football
American Football


Start to finish, this is jaw-dropping classic emo.
44Burzum
Hvis Lyset Tar Oss


Black metal with incredible atmosphere.
45Off Minor
The Heat Death Of The Universe


"Emotional hardcore perfection"
46Carissa's Wierd
You Should Be At Home Here


More sad indie rock to saddify your day.
47Neutral Milk Hotel
In The Aeroplane Over The Sea


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1v96otgyEE0
48Jeromes Dream
Seeing Means More Than Safety


Probably the most violent album I'll put on here. Fiery and passionate, but still
beautiful.
49Brand New
Deja Entendu


My favourite Brand New. One of the most depressing alt-rock albums of all
time, yet incredibly fun to listen to.
50Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas...


It would be a crime for me to leave this album off of this list. Maybe the
most beautiful of all time.
51Anomie
Discography


The french know how it's done. [2]
52City of Caterpillar
City of Caterpillar


"The soundtrack to every existential crisis you've ever felt."
53Dance Gavin Dance
Whatever I Say Is Royal Ocean


Dance Gavin Dance on drugs. Literally. This album is drug-fueled emotional
post-hardcore.
54 Johnny Hobo And The Freight Trains
Love Songs For The Apocalypse.


"And in my dreams I am dirty, broke, beautiful and free."
55Loma Prieta
I.V.


Some of the most emotionally intense music on here, along with some of my
favourite lyrics of all time.
56Teen Suicide
I Will Be My Own Hell Because There...


One of my all-time favourite albums. The soundtrack to my life.
57Pink Floyd
Wish You Were Here


Progressive rock at it's absolute finest.
58The World Is A Beautiful Place...
Whenever, If Ever


The last song here makes me almost cry. Every time.
59Cloudkicker
Beacons


A concept album that, if you follow the concept, goes along with the music
perfectly in a way that captivates you throughout the entire album.
60Crywank
Tomorrow Is Nearly Yesterday and Everyday Is Stupi


Sad folk-punk with awesome percussion!
61I Hate Myself
10 Songs


;_;
62Owen
At Home With Owen


Amazing Treb-core
63Envy
A Dead Sinking Story


More spectacular Japanese post-rock/screamo
64Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Slow Riot For New Zero Kanada


An extremely well-crafted EP by probably the greatest post-rock band. Soaring
climaxes and tear-jerking lows make two songs seem like a voyage.
65Mogwai
Government Commissions


Early Mogwai is best Mogwai.
66Baths
Cerulean


This electronic music tastes good.
67Grimes
Visions


:D
68Aphex Twin
Selected Ambient Works 85-92


I may not like the guy, but he makes some great ambient music.

Souvlaki


Beautiful and dreamy shoegaze.

The car's on fire, and there's no driver at the wheel.

More fantastic 90s emo.

Incredibly beautiful folk music that anyone should enjoy.

Beautiful post-rock.

( )


Sooooo dreamy, sooooooo pretty.
75Sufjan Stevens
Illinois


The champion of folk.
76Talk Talk
Laughing Stock


;_; [2]
77The Antlers
Hospice


Yeah, it's overrated, whatever, but it's still a remarkably beautiful album.
78Unwound
Leaves Turn Inside You


Some of the most atmospheric post-hardcore out there.
7965daysofstatic
The Fall of Math


Tasty post-rock.
80Beau Navire
Life Moves


I Wrote Haikus About Cannibalism In Your Yearbook-core
81Counting Crows
August And Everything After


A classic sad alt-rock album.
82Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate)
When The Sea Became A Giant


;_; [3]
83Funeral Diner
The Underdark


Cathartic screamo at it's best.
84Loma Prieta
Last City


Loma Prieta's old sound is just as good as their new sound, this album is just
more subdued than their later LPs.
85On The Might Of Princes
Where You Are and Where You Want to Be


Fantastic emo.
86Ulver
Bergtatt


Black metal with beautiful atmosphere.
87Joy Division
Unknown Pleasures


Do I need a reason?
88Have A Nice Life
Deathconsciousness


Beware ending up lying in a pool of your own blood.
89Swans
Soundtracks For The Blind


Haunting soundscapes.

Extremely emotional post-hardcore.

A Collection Of Songs


Some of the most beautiful screamo you will ever hear.
94The Saddest Lanscape
Lift Your Burdens High For This is Where We Cross


He doesn't want to miss her anymore.
95Sed Non Satiata
Sed Non Satiata


The french know how it's done. [3]
96Yndi Halda
Enjoy Eternal Bliss


The album title says it all.
97Ampere
All Our Tomorrows End Today


Sometimes I can hear you in the echoes.

Roads To Judah


Violet may very well be my favourite Deafheaven song. Absolutely beautiful.
99Noisy Sins Of The Insect
Discography


Some emotional people from Turkey making music.
100Mogwai
4 Satin


Probably my favourite Mogwai release. Everything about it is absolutely
perfect. Please give this a listen if you haven't. You won't be disappointed.
