|Decade List, Because I Have To |
So I heard that if you don't make a list of your favorite albums from the last decade the Sputnik Police come to your house and break your kneecaps with a baseball bat. So in the interest of not wanting to be confined to a wheelchair for the rest of my life, here's mine.
P.S. List doesn't "need M0AR" anything because it's my opinion and not yours, mmk?
|1||The Mars Volta|
Frances The Mute
Enormous, dark, monolithic, seamless. The best.
|2|| ||Godspeed You! Black Emperor|
Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas To Heaven
I've only listened to this about 10 times, and for good reason. It's a draining experience.
Solid, from start to finish. Not a bad track in the bunch. Excellent songwriting and musicianship brought to life by some of the most passionate musicians out there.
There's No 666 In Outer Space
Every time I listen to this, it's like the first time. Zach Hill went to another planet to see what kind of music they were digging, then came back and recorded this.
|5||At The Drive-In|
Relationship of Command
What needs to be said about this one? Everyone who's heard this album knows why.
|6|| ||Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra|
13 Blues for Thirteen Moons
Lots of people didn't like this album, including me at first. I listened to it a few times then left it alone for about a year.
After revisiting it, it was like a different record. I "get it" now. It's lyrically brilliant, angry, sad, and raw. Piss 'n vinegar committed to disc.
Tool's definitive album. You'll never hear anything else like it (except for 10,000 Days amirightguys! High5!)
Opeth, masters of contrast. From oppressive weight to stunning clarity and back again. And the riffs, oh the RIFFS!
This is the album that got me really interested in music; the first album I ever bought. Prior to this, I just listened to whatever shit was on the radio. Nickelback, Staind, oh the shame...oh the shame.
|10|| ||The Mars Volta|
Deloused In The Comatorium
I didn't want to double up on any artists, but I have to in this case. Morning View got me interested in music, this album is what made me passionate about music. To use an overdramatic analogy, it was like when Neo comes out of the Matrix for the first time.
|Whew, posted just in time. There were two dudes in Nixon masks with baseball bats knocking on my door right before I posted. |
|Good list, man. Still haven't listened to 5 enough.|
|TOOL hell yea, list is solid, never have gotten around to listening to Godspeed you! Black Emperor yet though I've only heard good things.|
|6 was crappy, Efrim needs to stop singing.|
|Yeah, he's not a good singer but I don't think it's very important in the context of the album. |
