MJ's Recent Digz

To commemorate my glorious unbanning, following a week of being forced to post under inferior usernames, I present a list of the music I've been digging recently. Yes, despite my relentless negativity when it comes to a few albums I violently dislike, I actually do like some music.
1Talking Heads
Remain in Light

Bow down
2Angelo Badalamenti
Twin Peaks: Music From Season 2 And More

Quite possibly the best soundtrack to any show in the history of television.
3Dead Can Dance
Within the Realm of a Dying Sun

The most devastatingly gorgeous goth/ethereal record of all time.
4 Godspeed You Black Emperor
Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas To

Despite the oversaturation of the post-rock genre over the last decade, this remains one of the best albums of the last ten years.
5Camille Saint-Saens
Le carnaval des animaux
6 Jean Sibelius
Pohjola's Daughter, symphonic fantasy, Op. 42

Pohjola's Daughter alone is one of the greatest pieces ever written. The composers of the theme to Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho based it off of one of Sibelius' motifs in this work.
Orbital 2

Easily one of the top 5 electronic music albums of all time. Along with The Orb's debut and Aphex Twin's first collection, it forms the holy trinity of ambient techno.

This album rounds out the top three shoegaze albums ever, alongside My Bloody Valentine's Loveless and Slowdive's Souvlaki.
9Maurice Ravel
Un Coeur en Hiver

Though it's part of a movie soundtrack, this might be the best performance of Ravel's Piano Trio in A minor out there. Written in 1915 while Ravel was driving ambulances for the French army in World War I, it's one of the most beautiful chamber pieces ever composed.
10Gustav Holst
The Planets Suite, for orchestra, Op. 32

As famous as this cycle is, people only seem to know Mars and Jupiter from it. I think Venus is the best piece Holst ever wrote, but the whole damn thing is classic.
