Post any album that you deeply love. Not that you "Like" or "dig". It doesn't have to be experimental.
First Muse album I listened to, and still one I secretly love the most
Boris - Akuma no Uta
I liked all of Boris' albums, but Naki Kyouko is something else.
all memes aside
I love this album
California is great as well but i prefer this
Even though it's not p4k core this album got me into music and really sets a mood. It has some amazing songs and manages to be really somber yet full at the same time.
My god anon, this.
This is ultimate listening, never heard something quite so awe inspiring in my life.
Pic related is the album I have closest to my heart. I don't care that it's catapulted into high-/mu/core status, the depth of love I feel for this album is extreme.
Listening to this for the first time was amazing, all memes aside
This album is underrated af imo. It's such an awesome and cohesive chamber pop record
Posting album covers so other people can reply with "yeah I like that album too" is a circlejerk. The fact that this board only talks about about the same albums over and over again isn't even the biggest problem, the worst thing is that there is no disussion to be found on this board.
easily most underrated Aphex, great experience
>>Flying Lotus - You're Dead
Seriously, I can't express in words how much this album floored me when I first listened to it. First vinyl I bought for myself and listened to. Absolutely amazing experience.
listen to it at full blast and enjoy an incredible piece of music filled with textures
The Avalanches - Since I Left You
One of my favorites. I don't even necessarily know that it's exceptional as Jazz goes, but this one always takes me to a really nice place. It's very comfy.
"Scenery" by Ryo Fukui if anyone's interested.
I first heard it when I was 17 and it's made me want to be a writer, for better or worse.
>I'm now 26, haven't lived in a place for more than a year since leaving home, have less than a grand to my name, finishing up my MFA in a top-tier school, and about to finish my first book of poems.
>I'm a loser but I feel beautiful
they're about a bunch of things but I like to write about gross stuff, death (as a character), and space. sad cartoons. I like writing prose poems but here's something in verse that's getting published soon.
the worst part is, you can't go anywhere else in Oldfield's discography if you want more like this. Hersest Ridge is also folky and pastoral, but carries a lot less emotional weight. Incantations has some really intensely arranged moments, but relies way too heavily on repetition, Tublar Bells is a lot more disjoined and naive, Amarok has a lot of African music influence but is a one big fuck you towards Virgin Records in the grand scheme of things, and the poppier albums, while also having some instrumentals, never carried the same weight.
If you want to listen to some more Oldfield though, listen to the rest of his first four albums (Tubular Bells, Hergest Ridge, Incantations), get his best pop album (Five Miles Out) and Amarok. Just now that none of them will be such intense and essential a listen as Ommadawn, unfortunately.
hell ya, i love his playstyle. this album is amazing.
About my album, it's emotional, feelsy and passionate. I love it
how a man in his bedroom, with a shitty 4 track, a vhs recorder, a broken down train signal and acoustic guitar can make such amazing, beautiful music, i have no idea.
This is great, never listened to Otis Redding so deeply. Listening to it right now.
I had an emotional breakdown listening to this one once.
It's been my favorite since I was 18 and I can't help but love every piece of music Isaac puts out, no matter how objectively shit it sometimes may be.
the dreary/stoned/lazy feeling is very palatable to my life.
been a great meme thread so far guys.
everything zach stands for in music means a lot to me
