The Original-CD release from 1989 had a way deeper, louder and more dynamic sound.

Pity that I won't get to experience it then. Despite that, the album is indeed a masterpiece that sprung from the very depths of Robert Smith's drug influenced soul and worms its way into the souls of the listeners. It's not just music, it's an experience.

@operationvalkyri Oh yes it is. "Prayers For Rain", "The Same Deep Water As You" and "Disintegration" in my opinion is one of the best 3-Songs-in-a-row in history.

No surprise that I completely agree with you. Those are my 3 favourite songs from the album as well, building and building up to the crescendo that is Disintegration, when everything falls apart. I also like it being followed by Homesick (at least on my album copy) which features one of the best guitar, bass, piano combos I've heard.

One of the greatest albums ever recorded. Do you follow his work as Mount Eerie? I’m convinced Phil can’t put out a bad record.

The Glow Pt. 2 by The Microphones

Power Corruption and Lies by New Order

What I loved about The Glow Pt.2 the most was the versatilitiy of it. I love the melancholy and the rawness of it, The noise and folk-rock combination. And of course I love that frickin' foghorn.
Yes I have listened to all of Phil Elverums Albums. The last MIcrophones-Album "Mount Eerie" has great Moments ("the Sun" was the best thing on it). "No Flashlight" was a great folk-album but also had some Noisy-elements I like. "Lost Wisdom" was pretty corny imo but it was bearable. After that there is no Elverum record that I liked that much. The Black-Metal influences on "Wind's Poem" were interesting, but most what he did simply wasn't for me. This is of course just my own opinion.

I always loved how the album keeps you on your toes. The constant shifts in instrumentals, especially as it grows more chaotic midway through, occasionally throwing you a gentle, almost melodic track like a port in a storm.
I wasn’t keen on Lost Wisdom either, and the recent follow up, while better, was still underwhelming.
He’s definitely taken a more “barebones” approach lately which I can understand people not enjoying. That said, A Crow Looked At Me was one of my favourites the year it came out.

There are a lot of albums that I love (just check my profile, I'm not gonna bother copy-pasting), so picking one is pretty difficult. I'd probably pick either Escapeland by effe (ambient electronic) or Reclaimer by Shadow of Intent (melodic deathcore). They're pretty different from each other, but I still love both of them to death.



This one caught my attention, as up until now, I've only listened to the title track of that album in isolation. I'm currently listening to it in its entirety (2nd song so far), and I've gotta say, it's pretty fuckin' sweet so far. I'll probably update with an edit when I'm done

Edit: So, I've given the album a listen. Although I'm certainly not a djent-enthusiast, I enjoyed the record on the whole. The most negative thing I have to say about it is that a lot of the tracks felt a bit samey and started blending together in my head, especially considering this has a 50 minute run time. This is probably because the melodies are a whole lot more subtle than the other music I listen to; if I listened to more djent, then I'd likely be able to distinguish them more easily. That's why the closing track is my favourite, as it was the one that stuck out the most. I can certainly understand why people love it, because I loved some of it, but I just can't listen to it for very long without tuning out. Overall, an enjoyable listen, but probably not something I'd put on again. I'd rather just listen to the individual songs I explicitly like instead of the whole album. Anyway, I didn't really come here to shit on other people's favourites, I just thought I'd listen to an album I've never listened to before and give my thoughts.

-Animals by Pink Floyd is the one I can safely mention. Loved most of their works but that album is just too personal to not mention.
-Aenema by TOOL too. Undertow and Lateralus were amazing in their own regards but aenema has that infinite replayability.
-Both Joy division albums. idc if people consider unknown pleasures to be their best album, I just enjoy both equally for different reasons.
-More Songs About Buildings and Food by Talking Heads is another banger of an album.
-Gotta show some love to Bowie too. Heathen and The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars are probably my most listened ones.
-I could mention like 15 Pillows albums here, but I'll just add Good Dreams and Please Mr. Lostman for now and call it a day hiding my fanboy side.

I've only listened to around 200-ish albums as of now. Used to prefer listening to music by just random songs or playlists that pops up in my feed, until this year. Most likely gonna hit the 1k mark before the end of 2020, hopefully.
by whom tho? Beach Boys?? Fuck yes if it's related to Pillows', though I highly doubt it...

'Remain in Light' by Talking Heads; it's pretty much a perfect album, in my opinion. Flawless A-side and extremely good B-side.

'The Overload' is the weakest track in the album, and it sounds like something Joy Division would've made, so even then, it's still pretty good. It's hard to believe that album was made in 1980.



New wave/post-punk/afrobeat perfection. 'Born Under Punches' is probably my favorite track. That track's such a banger.

Forgot to leave an album,

Definetly Machine Gun by the legend Brotzmann. Really noisy and cathartic, far more extreme than any metal. Crazy to think that these noises were made by people. Whenever little moments of melody or harmony arise they are so much more powerful due to the relentless and abrasive context.



Really cool to see varied taste amongst the posts here.

Albums are a dying concept - they've been prattling about it on the news since 2016 and it's been evident in real life for longger

In fact some albums are so lopsided in terms of quality and consistency, I'm not always in love with the tunes. That being said if say, I listened to 6 songs from an artist organically and I love it then I may listen to their album or ep

Currently the only album I'm listening to I wouldn't call my favourite because that's on heavy rotation only cause I was too lazy to make a playlist

Playlists are the way to go

I used to think that way too. Even if the concept looks like it's "dying", I still feel like it's best to get familiarize with any new or old bands/artists through their albums rather than looking for "greatest hits" playlists of them. Albums still have something special that mere playlists don't. Stuff like transition, relativeness and how the next song powers up the emotions and meaning of the previous song etc.

Once I've finished listening to their entire discography, I can finally take my time to find my personal favorite songs created by the said band/artist and then listening to just their albums won't be a necessity anymore. Of course it's not guaranteed that every album will have the same impact and impression as others, but at least I'll be able to say that I've listened to all of their works.

Playlists usually have the popular stuff, or at the very best, the personal favorites of the guy who created that playlist, whom may or may not have the same preferences as me. It's more exciting to find those "favorite songs" on my own rather than finding them from other's playlist. I might find those "hidden gems" that never got the recognition. That's how I feel anyway.

Both of these are great. Tarkus by ELP is probably my fav prog album but GG and King Crimson's Lizard are basically right up there with it.

I'm a bit of an authority on sad folk music, Glow Pt 2 is an essential.

Well, I'm generally not a fan of Prog which's too Jam-oriented, Jazzy and hard to listen to, so ELP and King Crimson aren't my favourites from that Genre. I like that Gentle Giant Album because besides that Jazzy stuff, they wrote some good songs. The title-track alone is very bombastic, epic and worth the whole thing. When it comes to Prog, I'm more of a Pink Floyd (1973-1979 era) and The Moody Blues guy.

I see you picked "Pink Moon" by Nick Drake. I like that too. It's very melancholic (what I love) and has a warmth to it.

I certainly get that, I felt the same until I started hanging out with some jazz heads and developed an ear for it and now I love it. That said, I do still tend to gravitate towards the chiller side of jazz; think Peanuts Christmas soundtrack or Bossa Nova. But there's a special type of expressiveness in that free form style. My favorite album of the decade was "You're Dead!" by Flying Lotus, which features Thundercat and Kamasi Washington among others going buckwild, but also has its fair share of more accessible listening.

Yeah it's got this exetremely detached, depressive mood to it on tracks like "Things Behind the Sun" and "Harvest Breed" which juxtaposes VERY powerfully with that warmth on tracks like "Which Will" and "From the Morning". Not to mention that Nick revolutionized the "singer with an acoustic guitar" style, no one outside of classical music was writing songs in tunings like BADGAD until Nick Drake. I heard him when I was only like 12 years old and my ears were not ready for those chords.
