Perfect from now on might be better but is the album that got me into them.

Hate


Underappreciated band. Lyrics on this are kinda sad but oh so good

Fav. Track:Coming in from the cold
14Deep Puddle Dynamics
The Taste of Rain...Why Kneel?


4 rappers have created a great abstract album with awesome beats and lyrics. Doseone is also on here and kills it.

Fav. Track: The Scarecrow speaks
13Clouddead
cLOUDDEAD


Doseone and Why? shine with their nasal delivery on dreamy beats. This is one of those albums you either adore or hate I guess.

Fav. Track: Apt. A#2
12Shotmaker / Maximillian Colby
Split


The best of both skramz bands on a cool split

Fav. Track: What's the matter river?
11Modest Mouse
The Lonesome Crowded West


Toss up between this and Long drive for my fav. MM but this one is just a little better imo.

Fav. Track: Teeth like god's shoeshine
10Wire
154


Wire ended their perfect album streak with this album which is way ahead of its time.

Fav. track: A touching display
9This Heat
Deceit


Weird experimental album which needs a lot of digestion. But it's worth it

Fav. Track: Makeshift Swahilli
8Say Anything
...Is a Real Boy


Maybe it is nostalgia, but this is pop punk perfection

Fav. Track: Admit it!
7Husker Du
Zen Arcade


Husker Du show they are capable of almost everything, with this monster of an album

Fav. Track: Reocurring dreams
6Women
Public Strain


The essential winter album.

Fav. track: Can't you see
5Lync
These Are Not Fall Colors


Emo/post-hardcore with great guitar and bass interplay. Very catchy overlooked album which quickly grew on me. For fans of Unwound.

FAv. Track: Clay Fighter
4Lift to Experience
The Texas-Jerusalem Crossroads


Upon hearing this album I couldn't believe this was not a big band. Already released in 2001, but the remaster of last year shows just how good this double album is. Mixing indie rock shoegaze and vocals that resemble Jeff Buckley at times combined with the unique concept make this a classic.
3The Microphones
Mount Eerie


This album will always stand in the shadow of the Glow Pt. 2. However it is arguably the biggest grower of all time and just as good.

Fav. Track: Mt eerie
2mewithoutYou
Brother, Sister


The creative peak of mwY. I wonder where the new album will stand in their discography.

Fav. Track: A glass can only spill what it contains
1Unwound
Leaves Turn Inside You


Unwound took everything I love about music and condensed it into an album.

Fav. Track: Below the Salt
