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
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.
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

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
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.

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.
James Is Going To Die Soon

The soundtrack to a painful break-up.
Kid A

Ten wonderful songs that emanate beauty.

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

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...

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

Nothing quite like 90s emo.
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.
Laisser Vivre Les Squelettes

The french know how it's done.
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

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

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

Oh, Mexico.
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.

The sound of sad youth is one that affects me personally more than most
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

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

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

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

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

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.

More beautiful work from Ben Sharp.
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.
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

48Jeromes Dream
Seeing Means More Than Safety

Probably the most violent album I'll put on here. Fiery and passionate, but still
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.

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
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

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.

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.
Tomorrow Is Nearly Yesterday and Everyday Is Stupi

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

At Home With Owen

Amazing Treb-core
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.
Government Commissions

Early Mogwai is best Mogwai.

This electronic music tastes good.

68Aphex Twin
Selected Ambient Works 85-92

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

Beautiful and dreamy shoegaze.
70Godspeed You! Black Emperor
F#A# (Infinity)

The car's on fire, and there's no driver at the wheel.
71Indian Summer

More fantastic 90s emo.
72Bon Iver
For Emma, Forever Ago

Incredibly beautiful folk music that anyone should enjoy.
73Explosions In The Sky
All of a Sudden, I Miss Everyone

Beautiful post-rock.
74Sigur Ros
( )

Sooooo dreamy, sooooooo pretty.
75Sufjan Stevens

The champion of folk.
76Talk Talk
Laughing Stock

;_; [2]
77The Antlers

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

Some of the most atmospheric post-hardcore out there.
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.

Black metal with beautiful atmosphere.
87Joy Division
Unknown Pleasures

Do I need a reason?
88Have A Nice Life

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

Haunting soundscapes.
90 Ojne

Beautiful Italian screamo.
91Sed Non Satiata
Le Ciel De Notre Enfance

Mmmmm more post-rock screamo to-go please.
Brother, Sister

Extremely emotional post-hardcore.
93The Kodan Armada
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.
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

Some emotional people from Turkey making music.
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.
