Unexpected 5s

Albums I would never have hinted at regarding them as classics before having listened to them.
1John Zorn
Naked City

I usually consider art music to be directly correlated to aesthetic compromise, syncretism, and a failure in terms of musical integrity. This is obviously different.
2Joy Wants Eternity
You Who Pretend to Sleep

I'm surprised I don't think this is completely standard-fare for the genre, but oh lord it's not. It's not at all.
3Youth Pictures of Florence Henderson
Youth Pictures of Florence Henderson

I'm surprised this was so immediate. Usually albums start out as 4.5s and work their way to a 5, but this was immediately a sparkling crystal in the amethyst tank of post-rock.
Special Moves

Dude it's fucking Mogwai I should give this a 3.5 or something. But those camera angles! The reinterpretations of Young Team tracks! The hawtness!
5Saito Koji

Probably should think that this shit ripped off William Basinski but isn't as fascinating, but it's certainly 5-worthy. William Basinski is still soooo much better though.
6Sarah Fimm
The Vanishing Sessions (B-Sides Part I)

I know, right?
7Kayo Dot

Um check my soundoff for this beast.
