5.0 classic
Agent Orange Living in Darkness
Drenched in distortion, Agent Orange coasts along in this brief surf punk classic. Largely overlooked outside of "Bloodstains," this band packs in jams that need to be discovered.
Al Green Greatest Hits
American Football American Football
Never meant is up there for my favorite song of all time. That song is all you need in autumn. I remember waiting to go to school and I sat on my porch in the morning as the sun rose and listened to this whole album. One of the most pleasant experiences I've ever had.

Blink-182 Greatest Hits
A great collection and starting point for someone trying to get a taste of the band. The two exclusive tracks at the end are also stellar. Not Now is a top five blink song.
Bloc Party Silent Alarm
Blur The Best Of
For someone who enjoys Blur 90's output, but doesn't really connect fully with the albums individually, this is a near perfect collection. Hope to pick this up soon. Great picks. Full of the hits, as well as some deeper cuts that don't get enough love.
Bob Dylan Blonde on Blonde
Bob Dylan Highway 61 Revisited
Bob Dylan Blood on the Tracks
Bob Marley and The Wailers Legend
Bobby Hutcherson Happenings
Vibraphones for the win babyyyyyyy! But seriously this is groovy jazz. The only song that is kind of off is the closer, but it doesn't take away from how good all the others are.
Bon Iver Bon Iver, Bon Iver
Brand New Deja Entendu
Brand New The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me
Bruce Springsteen Born to Run
Born to run might be one of the greatest songs of all time. The song and album never get old or worn out. The Boss speaks with such wisdom and sense of adventure. It makes me want to drive on the highway with my friends, and let the wind guide us as we belt out "Tramps like us, baby, we were born to run!"

Dashboard Confessional The Places You Have Come To Fear The Most
Dashboard's second release marks a small progression from their debut, but it feels much fresher. The 29 minute run time actually works heavily in this album's favor in regards to the 40 something time of the debut. This album is quick, straight to the point, and cuts like a knife. This feels like a diary that's been exposed for the world to see. You can feel the pain in the voice and the words sting, but you find comfort in the warm acoustic nature of the songs. This album can be played over and over seamlessly, and never overstays it's welcome. This is the best Dashboard Confessional album. Once they're sound moved to a full band, electric, sound, part of the beauty disappeared. Although the others albums aren't all that great, this one is worth it.

Jack Johnson In Between Dreams
Jack Johnson sets himself apart from his contemporaries with this release, creating some laid back Hawaiian beach vibes, with hints of blues and reggae thrown in for good measure. To compare Johnson to someone like Jason Mraz is a slap to the face, because he is so much more than just an "Acoustic/contemporary pop" artist. In between dreams creates scenery, and transports you to his world, full of warm Saturdays filled with banana pancakes and mango trees. This is the essential Jack Johnson record, and goes down as a classic for me.
James Brown Live At The Apollo
Easily one of the best live albums ever made. It's only thirty minutes but James Brown pours out his heart and soul. You can feel the sweat dripping off his brow as he gets his groove on, and melts the girls hearts with his croons.

Justin Timberlake The 20/20 Experience
Production on this is insanely good. Although there are a few missteps, lyrics most definitely, (looking at you Suit and Tie) I don't think I've ever heard on pop record this engaging, inventive, and classic while also remaining fresh. I wish the second 20/20 was even half this good. Don't think JT will ever top this one.
Kacey Musgraves Golden Hour
One of the most peaceful albums I've ever heard that remains engaging, fresh, and cute as ever. This album does not get old. Best country album released in a long time.
Kanye West Late Registration
Kanye West 808s and Heartbreak
Mac DeMarco 2
Mac DeMarco Salad Days
Mac DeMarco This Old Dog
The first record I ever bought. This album is the soundtrack to my life at 17. Even though Mac's previous efforts were more fun instrumentally, this album really lets the lyrics take charge. This is Mac's most mature output, and even though Here comes the cowboy wasn't terrible, I hope he goes back to this direction. I have really enjoyed witnessing his progression. Easily one of the most important artists of the 2010's, and definitely one of my favorites.
Marvin Gaye What's Going On
It's crazy how socially applicable the messages on this album are to this day. I'd argue that they are more important now than ever. Truly a timeless classic, and one of the most important records ever released. Not just for soul, but for music in general.
Michael Jackson Thriller
Michael Jackson Bad
Michael Jackson Off the Wall
The most consistent MJ album he ever released. Jam after jam, and maintains that same funk/disco sound. Although Thriller and Bad are classics as well, they have a bit of an identity crisis when it comes to their sound. This record does not suffer from that problem. Even the slow jams on this album hit hard.

No Doubt The Singles 1992-2003
This hits collection is amazing. Not super cohesive, but that makes sense seeing how their sound changed a bit across the years. Every song on here is a jam. Even the corny ones like "Hey baby" still go hard. Also the Talk Talk cover they did for this is one of the best things they ever made.
Oasis (What's the Story) Morning Glory?
Paramore After Laughter
The lyrics and the music combat against each other so well, and the fact that it's so blatantly addressed on tracks like fake happy and hard times makes it all the more cynical. Love it. Their best album (coming from someone who enjoys all their stuff). Shows their mature growth as a band, doing something different while still keeping their identity. Instant classic.

I LOVE HUCKLEBERRY FINN! SUCH A JAM! Somebody should make a sequel called Tom Sawyer.
Ruston Kelly Halloween
Dark and brooding, Ruston Kelly bursts onto the Alt-Country scene in spectacular fashion with a mini album that displays his mature songwriting. His self-proclaimed genre of "dirt emo" seems to fit all too well, and he becomes one of the most unique faces of the Country music scene in the past couple years.

Please give this movie a watch if you haven't and you love 60's pop/rock music. A very cool, and refreshing take on the fictional band concept for movies. Super funny, and heartfelt. The characters are written and played very well.

A perfect encapsulation of the very best pieces from the early Beach Boys era. With the exception of a few gems, this compilation has everything you need. Their first few albums aren't amazing but they each had a few great tunes, and almost every great one appears here. No duds on this. It's the best reflection of their fun loving years. Highly recommend.

The Strokes The New Abnormal
The Strokes come back a new and refreshed band. The inclusion of synths was a knockout choice. Juilan's experimentation with his other projects like the latest Voidz album really show how he was able to make those sounds more concise in this record. Also, this might have his best singing performances he's ever laid down. I never really thought of him as a great vocalist, but he doesn't hide behind the effects as much here and belts it out on some of these tracks. I love the little studio conversations too. Makes you feel like it's a live recording. This is great. The most interesting thing they've done since the gold debut.

Third Eye Blind Third Eye Blind
This is what all pop rock albums should aim for. This album remains catchy without sacrificing the honesty and heartache in the lyrics. The lyrics deal with addiction, loneliness, and a general lack of unhappiness, but the songs overall have a very upbeat sound about them. Because of this, it fills many moods of listening. When you are down, the lyrics are there for you, and when you are happy, the music is there for you. Third Eye Blind perfected the formula on first try and have yet to best this attempt. These songs never get worn out. Instant Classic.
Tom Petty Full Moon Fever
Tom Waits Rain Dogs
Tom Waits Closing Time
Turnover Peripheral Vision
One of the most interesting emo records of the past decade. Embracing a clean indie sound over the distorted grungy sounds of the genre's birth, the album glides through songs of various troublings and tough topics. Because of its fresh sound for the genre, paired with well written lyrics, this album stands on top of the emo band pack.

The vocals are too low in the mix, and it bothers me a lot. The music is great, but the mixing is what brings down the score for me. Better off listening to solo Jeff material. (Edit): This has grown on me a little more, but I still have some of the same gripes.

This album is all over the place. It's unpredictable, emotional, loud, and knows how to hold off. It travels through many themes of adolescence, but also adds in odd/random phrases to throw off the listener. One of the most refreshing indie rock releases of the last decade. It's experimental while remaining grounded and it marked an exciting transition for the band. The exposure they got from this album gave them a much bigger stage and it's very easy to see why.

Daniel Johnston Welcome to My World
Truly a unique and inspiring songwriter, Daniel could take the simplest of objects and make them somehow poetic. "Story of an artist" is quite possibly one of the greatest songs to exist. Although his music is not too well known outside of certain circles, I doubt he will soon be forgotten. This is a great starting point and wholesome overview of his career. Highly recommend to anyone trying to dig into his work.
Dave Matthews Band Under The Table And Dreaming
An excellent debut, and their best album. As others have said, this album has the most pop sensibilities out of their records, but that is absolutely not a bad thing. If anything, it makes it more memorable. Known for their jam band qualities, its nice to see Dave and company just create some really solid pop tunes with some interesting song structures and breakdowns.
David Bowie "Heroes"
David Bowie Blackstar
David Crowder Band Church Music
Very of it's time musically, but you can't beat some of the energy and creativity on display here. The lyrics are amazing, and this clearly showcases a time when Christian music was something to be excited about. Although David Crowder has moved on to his own material and style, this remains his opus.

Depeche Mode The Best Of - Volume I
Dolly Parton Jolene
Echo and The Bunnymen Songs to Learn and Sing
A great collection of songs from their first couple albums, and I'd honestly rather listen to this than hear the individual albums in their entirety. The best songs of their discography are represented here. The songs on here have a drive to them, most likely because the songs are their more poppy endeavors. It's better than having a bunch of gothic slow burners though. At least in this band's case. The Cure can pull off both of these styles much better, but this is still full of gems. An overlooked 80's band, that deserves a little more credit for cultivating the gothic/post punk sound.

One of the most unique albums I've heard in awhile. It sounds so raw and different, partly because it's unfinished, but I'm so happy Jai decided to release this album again and finally have ownership over his music. Go read about his story and this album. It really sucks seeing everything he's gone through. The production is amazing with its spliced sounds. Only thing that really takes away from the album are the pointless interludes. I understand that it's unfinished, but it might have been better to just leave them out. That said, there are still some awesome jams on here.

Kid Cudi Man on the Moon: The End of Day
Cinematic, adventurous, and honest. Kid Cudi burst onto the scene with some of the most revolutionary songs for the hip hop community. This album has influenced so many rappers to be more honest and expressive with their music. They have a platform, and they can use it to impact their listeners. Kid Cudi raised a group of upcoming artists, and it all started with Man on the Moon. His career after the first two records really is day and night though. (pun intended)

MGMT Little Dark Age
Little Dark Age is living proof that MGMT are no longer living under the shadow of their "big three" singles. After some psychedelic misfires, the duo retook the indie scene with a dark but insanely catchy album. Creating a record that feels more like an "MGMT project" than any other output, the group seem to be confident as ever, and personally, I find it inspiring that they have been able to redefine themselves. Let's just hope they are here to stay as a powerhouse with their next release.

A great collection that may not be completely necessary if you already own other parts of their discography, but it's worth it if you can find it. The live performances on the back half are rough, but full of passion, and the fuzz and bad quality is oddly comforting in the midst of Brock's cold stories.

The chemistry and personality of the two artists is exuded in every corner of this silky smooth album. Though the singles on this full album are still the highlights, this full length project captures the mood and accomplishes it very accurately and professionally. If anything, let's hope this collaboration leads to better things for each artist's work and the mainstream music process as a whole. Silk Sonic is a pop album not to be missed, and it could be regarded as a classic by this generation in years to come.

Tears for Fears The Hurting
Goes toe to toe with their best releases. Outside of Mad World, this album feels very overlooked. There are so many great deep cuts. Soaring hooks are found all over this record. Only thing that seems to hold it back from being a classic could be the track- listing. It slows down a lot in the back half. If there was something to pick it up, it would totally change the feel of the album. That said, this is still essential for any Tears for Fears fan.
The 1975 The 1975
Music for John Hughes teenager character types to live by. A slick coming of age/night on the town album filled with flawed people and sad stories hiding under the disguise of 80's pop goodness. Though this album is to thank for several garbage "alt" groups that came after, this stands true as an album that stuck to its vibe just long enough to be congratulated by those willing to step inside the world of The 1975.

I suppose I just wasn't getting it the first time. There are a lot more pop sensibilities then remembered.

The nighttime feel of this album is super chilling. A largely overlooked release, seeing as it came in between the trilogy, and his pop breakout, Beauty behind the madness. Kiss land relies on the ambience and buildup of a song much more than his pop endeavors. The subtle samples glimmer in the background, while Abel belts his heart out over the distorted drums and neon synths. Welcome to Kiss land. Enjoy your stay.
The Weeknd After Hours
His best album right now just edging out Kiss Land. It's also the most accessible, and easiest to listen to. Lyrically, this is a mature step up as well. Can't wait to see where his sound goes from here.

One of the most exciting Indie Rock bands in the game right now. First they release a stellar EP, and then a more mature album. They one upped themselves lyrically and instrumentally. This album seems simple on first listen, but only gets better. The influences are shown well, but more subtly than the EP did. I can't wait to see where they go next. Catch these dudes live if you get the chance. They put on a great show, and seem like really nice guys.

Pretty happy with this for what it is, but it sure does pale in comparison to everything in his 70/80's catalogue. "Ghosts" is one heck of a tune though. Wish this album's pace was a little more balanced. That's my only real big gripe with this at the moment. Solid record for a 71 year old. He's still got that youthful passion.

First off, I'm not really a fan of black metal at all, but I figured I'd give this a try considering the heavy post-rock and shoegaze influences. I've gotta say that this is just something else. I honestly don't even pay attention to what the lyrics are. I view the vocals as an instrument of their own or an extra texture. It's not exactly something I'd recommend, but I found myself in awe of some of the work here.

If only more artists strived for more creativity without sacrificing catchiness. This is honestly better than I remember it being.

Continuing the recent movement of female-led indie rock bands, illuminati hotties attempts to separate themselves from the pack, trying to combine multiple sounds into their music. As their leader Sarah puts it: She is trying to pioneer a "Tender-punk" sound and it clearly shows. Definitely a group to keep tabs on in the future.

Garage Rock stripped down to its core as it captures youthful feeling and keeps your blood pumping throughout its runtime. The live performance feel really adds to the muddled production. This is an album to point to for genius use of yell along lyric writing. Giving this a 4 seems fitting for an album so simply done, but for what is, its very very good.

This debut record has really grown on me. I used to be rather annoyed with how raw it sounds, but it's shown it's charm
throughout continuous listens. You'll find some of Mac's more chugging tracks here which is cool. The radio interlude ideas
are ok, but not terribly obnoxious. This is the underrated gem of his discography to me. I hardly hear people talk about this
even in his fanbase. Obviously, everything after this is what he is and will be known for, but this is a unique album that
peeks into a indie rocker on the brink of breakthrough.

Peach Pit Sweet FA
A super smooth entrance into the indie music scene for Peach Pit. One of the more exciting bands around right now. They are pushing the sound and having fun, while seemingly fitting into that Mac Demarco slacker rock vibe that so many artists are adopting. But the sound doesn't ever come across as forced. A solid EP debut for the gents, and I wish them the best.

The stellar debut from a young Whitney feels better than her other records, and I think it's because of the length and track order. It picks up in the second half with a much needed push, and doesn't fall ill to the same problem as the album after. The slower songs still remain interesting and the duets really help keep you invested. "How will I know" is an obvious stand out and for good reason. It's instantly enjoyable, but what's even better is that it was not the first song on the record. They save their super weapon of a song, so that it hits better in the context of the full album.

Car Seat Headrest Twin Fantasy (Face to Face)
A solid attempt at recreating his previous version of this album. Toledo gives bursts of energy to his original lo-fi sound. I strongly prefer the album, Teens of Denial, but that does not mean this album shouldn't be respected in its own right. While the fun guitar, random lyrics, and complicated song structures still remain, I find this album lacking some of the emotion from that of Denial. Also the topics addressed here don't really grab me. While this seems more personal, it also feels more simple. This album will definitely be a stand out for years to come, and I respect the release, but it's just not my favorite from him and I'd rather listen to Teens of Denial.

Citizen can't seem to make anything new. They seem stuck in their sound, and while its good, it gets tiresome over time. I don't come back to their music all that often. They sound like they are trying to be the next Brand New, but I'd rather listen to them instead. There is much better emo out there. Their best album is still probably "Youth."

Hobo Johnson The Rise of Hobo Johnson
Love some of the odd/goofy songwriting here. There are lots of great ideas, and this album doesn't feel as all over the place as the next, but there are a few aggravating things here. The multiple intros/talking bits are annoying, but once you get into the song it's not as bad. For me, Hobo Johnson shines in a live setting. His spontaneous and erratic antics seem to serve him better in those circumstances. It has not transferred to the record how he thought. All that aside, still a fun artist to occasionally come back to, but I'd rather watch his videos instead.
Hobo Johnson The Fall of Hobo Johnson
Typical Story rips. Such a stand out track. Sadly, everything seems to go downhill from there. Hobo Johnson is an interesting artist and has lots of potential but he needs to tighten up the screws a little bit.

Land." Disgraceful. I love The Weeknd, but I don't know what to make of this.
