|Albums With Immense Beauty|
Some albums that really click with me.
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
|2||Explosions 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.
Ambient 1: Music For Airports
Airports Are A Beautiful Place And I Am No Longer Afraid To Fly
save the planet kill yourself
Drug influenced ambient soundscapes that will soothe your nerves.
The last thing this band put out. No more garage rock, no more upbeat
songs, just broken and beaten souls.
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.
|9||Empire! 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.
Ten wonderful songs that emanate beauty.
Poetic lyrics and expressive music meld together into an incredibly beautiful
I MISS YOU!
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.
|16||Suffocate For Fuck Sake|
Blazing Fires And Helicopters On The Fro
Narrative post-rock with occasional heavy bits.
|17||Ricky Eat Acid|
Three Love Songs
Marry me Sam Ray.
|18||Thee 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.
|19||I Wrote Haikus About Cannibalism...|
Dreamy screamo, with tons of emotion. Yum.
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.
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.
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.
|25||Suis La Lune|
Post-rock and screamo is an emotional combination.
Emotional, hard-hitting, beautiful, intense, this album has it all.
Come On Die Young
Early Mogwai beats most things.
|29||God Is An Astronaut|
All Is Violent, All Is Bright
Simple post-rock with huge emotional impact.
|30||This WIl Destroy You|
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.
|33||The Brave Little Abacus|
Just Got Back From The Discomfort
Songs of a broken man, guided by well-executed emo instrumentals.
|34||Warren 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
|36||Self Defense Family|
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.
|38||Flowers 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. 
|40||Captain, 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.
Start to finish, this is jaw-dropping classic emo.
Hvis Lyset Tar Oss
Black metal with incredible atmosphere.
The Heat Death Of The Universe
"Emotional hardcore perfection"
You Should Be At Home Here
More sad indie rock to saddify your day.
|47||Neutral Milk Hotel|
In The Aeroplane Over The Sea
Seeing Means More Than Safety
Probably the most violent album I'll put on here. Fiery and passionate, but still
My favourite Brand New. One of the most depressing alt-rock albums of all
time, yet incredibly fun to listen to.
|50||Godspeed 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. 
|52||City of Caterpillar|
City of Caterpillar
"The soundtrack to every existential crisis you've ever felt."
|53||Dance Gavin Dance|
Whatever I Say Is Royal Ocean
Dance Gavin Dance on drugs. Literally. This album is drug-fueled emotional

Love Songs For The Apocalypse.
"And in my dreams I am dirty, broke, beautiful and free."
Some of the most emotionally intense music on here, along with some of my
favourite lyrics of all time.
I Will Be My Own Hell Because There...
One of my all-time favourite albums. The soundtrack to my life.
Wish You Were Here
Progressive rock at it's absolute finest.
|58||The 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!
|61||I Hate Myself|
At Home With Owen
A Dead Sinking Story
More spectacular Japanese post-rock/screamo
|64||Godspeed 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.
Early Mogwai is best Mogwai.
This electronic music tastes good.
Selected Ambient Works 85-92
I may not like the guy, but he makes some great ambient music.
Beautiful and dreamy shoegaze.
|70||Godspeed You! Black Emperor|
The car's on fire, and there's no driver at the wheel.
More fantastic 90s emo.
For Emma, Forever Ago
Incredibly beautiful folk music that anyone should enjoy.
|73||Explosions In The Sky|
All of a Sudden, I Miss Everyone
Sooooo dreamy, sooooooo pretty.
The champion of folk.
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
I Wrote Haikus About Cannibalism In Your Yearbook-core
August And Everything After
A classic sad alt-rock album.
|82||Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate)|
When The Sea Became A Giant
Cathartic screamo at it's best.
Loma Prieta's old sound is just as good as their new sound, this album is just
more subdued than their later LPs.
|85||On The Might Of Princes|
Where You Are and Where You Want to Be
Black metal with beautiful atmosphere.
Do I need a reason?
|88||Have A Nice Life|
Beware ending up lying in a pool of your own blood.

Beautiful Italian screamo.

Sed Non Satiata
The french know how it's done. 
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.
|99||Noisy Sins Of The Insect|
Some emotional people from Turkey making music.
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.
