The Nine Lives of Rec Roulette

unique, butcher and bgil; everyone else will be ignored // buttrock now allowed after bgil's victory

This round // albums that are not only considered the band/artist's greatest achievement, but are incredibly concise in comparison with their other works. For example, a good deal of Supercar's albums were 70+ minutes whereas Highvision is 47 minutes and is quintessential aughts alt rock/shoegaze.

the one who recs me metal all the time
This time, the one who recs me metal all the time rec'd me limp-wristed emo/pop punk. With these tags and that squeaky clean production and vocalizations, no wonder it's so short. 2.9 / 5
3The Tiger Lillies
Low Life Lullabies

the one that secretly likes prog but needs to keep up appearances
This time, the one that secretly likes prog [...] rec'd me the corniest stuff this side of Orville Redenbacher. Badbadnotgood-type corny, mind you. 1.9 / 5
4And Also The Trees
Hunter not the Hunted

the one who recs fifteen thousand albums
This time, the one who recs fifteen thousand albums brought to me something brooding. It enveloped me in its mood unlike the other two and kept me in its hold for all 52 minutes. Well done. 3.9 / 5 (WINNER lol)
