10 of my favorite albums of all time.
1 being the "worst", 10 being the "best"

  1. McCartney* - McCartney

    Paul has always been my favorite Beatle. My reasoning is his solo work, and McCartney is easily his best.

  2. Pink Floyd - The Dark Side Of The Moon

    17 For Sale from $23.99

    A classic. This was the first album where I started to leave my normal listening genres and experiment more.

  3. Connan Mockasin - Forever Dolphin Love

    Fantastic album, a very unique sound.

  4. Tame Impala - Lonerism

    Great album, much better than Tame Impala's last work "Innerspeaker".

  5. Arcade Fire - Funeral

    18 For Sale from $24.99

    While Arcade Fire's other albums are still pretty great, especially The Suburbs, this album is probably my favorite among the four.

  6. Radiohead - Kid A

    29 For Sale from $13.50

    One of the first records I ever bought and one of the weirdest. (In a good way).

  7. Explosions In The Sky - The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place

    1 For Sale from $111.11

    This album has influenced my own work many times. If not one of the best albums of all time, most definitely the best post-rock album of all time.

  8. The Velvet Underground & Nico (3) - The Velvet Underground & Nico

    7 For Sale from $88.89

    I had no idea that this album came out in 1967 the first I listened to it. Sunday Morning started the album off, and I immediately thought it came out in 2014!
    Truly ahead of it's time.

  9. David Bowie - "Heroes"

    37 For Sale from $26.30

    My favorite bowie album. I always liked his work with Eno more than his other work, I don't what it is, it's just that the collaboration between the two was unlike any other. Amazing album.

  10. Sigur Rós - Takk...

    29 For Sale from $40.00

    When I was 5 or 6, my parents took my sister and I on a trip to Mexico. My sister and I would always get music on our mother's iPod (the first iPod) - We found a song called "Hoppipolla" and it really moved us. I listened to it on repeat the whole plane ride. About 4 or 5 years later, I remembered it and looked up who it was by, and found this album. Every song, EVERY SONG, fucking wins for me. The whole album is supposedly about childhood, which I think is brilliant.

    Greatest album of all time.
