Let's have a thread for albums that sound completely unlike anything else you've ever heard. I'm hoping that if we can find enough, we can make a chart of them.
Let's try to avoid unusual albums that are somewhat comparable to others, until we run out of really unique ones first.

There are other artists that use retro-futuristic sounds, but none sound like OPN.

A lot of prog blends weird stuff together. The Dear Hunter makes simpler, less singer-songwritery prog that you might like.

Yeah I like the Dear Hunter, but I was more thinking of Sufjan's incorporation of bleeps and stuff into his normal genre-blending music.

Isn't this mostly black metal mixed with math rock though? Still good.

Dean Blunt's releases also sound unique to me.

As much as I love E&A, they're not really like Subtle.
Other anticon hip-hop bands like Young Fathers, Why?, or The Skyrider Band come a bit closer, but Subtle/13 & God stands alone.
>>
>>51413175
Of course, there are no carbon copies these albums but there's stuff out there that's similar.

A lot of contemprorary rap acts sound similar to Danny (or vice versa). Ranging from clipping, Ab, Shabazz, or at times reminding me of Bronson.

Lithurgy is trickier but I'd say stuff like Dope Body sounds similar to it, at least instrumentally. Difference being, one's mixed with BM, the other with Punk.

And OPN's just a slew of ambient plus vaporwave (well, because it's opn after all).

I'm not saying any of these albums are bad. Just we all know about these albums, wanted to see more out there stuff.
>>
undeniably this
>>
>>51413371
this just sounds like run-of-the-mill metal.
>>
>>51413624
>Lithurgy
also you basically just said they don't sound like anything else lol

Also Replica isn't vaporwave. R+7 sounds more like vaporwave, and it's still not at all. They both get grouped into the "scene" because he released eccojams before both of them (same reason Returnal gets grouped in). He didn't even know what vaporwave is according to his reddit ama

This is weird shit. Heavy ass bass riffing with drumming that sounds like free jazz meets post death metal, at times at grindcore speed with mad piano playing that appears to be distorted like a theremin at some points, and the odd manic yell here and there. Too bad they moved on to doing fairly basic industrial rock after this.
