Depressing albums recs

So I've noticed that depressing music is my favorite kind of music. What depressing albums would you recommend? List is new listens, and also some rules.
1Modest Mouse
The Moon & Antarctica

Been really getting into this band hard, Lonesome Crowded West and The Moon & Antarctica are so amazing. Only problem is I can't tell which I like more, I think Moon is still growing. Also, I forget to put the "c" in front of the t every time I write "Antarctica". Makes me look like an idiot >:[

HOLY FUCK. As my first "slowcore" album this shit's just great. Really quite different from the few songs I know by Codeine. I like the difference, but both bands are awesome from what I've heard. Honestly - this might be Ala's first genuine 5 with this new rating system. Not too sure. It's one of those albums where every song genuinely contributes to the work and you never feel bored. It's not like every song is greatest of all time or will stick to your ear all day but it's just such a nice piece of work.
3Built to Spill
Perfect from Now On

This blew my mind pretty much. Their second record had so much wrong with it in my opinion - I didn't expect for the third "breakout" record to change my opinion of this band so much. While the instrumentals themselves are usually happy go lucky, the record as a whole is actually very depressing. Weird random lyricism with somewhat upbeat instrumentation creates for an allusion of sorts, beautiful melodies with slow sad pieces of thought strung out for 8 songs in fifty four minutes. Already one of my favorite albums, this and Bedhead have a similar sentiment to me.
4Sufjan Stevens
Carrie and Lowell

TVC and Clover were ranting on skype in reaction to my 4.5 of this on Skype. They talked shit. I was more than a little offended, to say the least.
5Lou Reed

I kind of had a moment with this yesterday where I just went "wow". Don't know if this will stay a 4.5 but the songwriting here is perfect.
6Elliott Smith

Ok okay so rules : 1. Can't be elliott smith 2. It has to be good(see rule #1) 3. Don't give me post punk most likely, I have a list on word doc of 87 post punk albums im getting to and i'm going to post that on Sputnik on a different list so no post punk.

Thanks you guys : )
