Top 50 – 26 Favorite Albums

50. Carcass – Symphonies of Sickness462

I’m one of those that didn’t mind the shit recording of Reek of Putrefaction, but this one is that times 100.

49. Godspeed You Black Emperor! – Lift Yr. Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven!tumblr_m2peyaQ5001ru6kxco1_500

Yes I, too, succumbed to the majestic epicness of this one.

48. Opeth – Morningrisecover13329331084f72f1f49c4ba

My own personal favorite of theirs. Every fan has their own unique reason for their favorite but I like this one when they still had some Black Metal elements to their sound.

47. Pan Sonic – Kesto (234.48:4)CS2357092-02A-BIG

A four hour experience that almost no one will ever appreciate and I love it because of that.

46. Suffocation – Effigy of the ForgottenSUFFOCATION-Effigy-of-the-Forgotten-LP-BLACK

Their best ever, and have yet to replicate the mastery of this in their later work.

45. Can – Ege Bamyasican-ege-bamyasi

Krautrock that I can actually get jiggy with.

44. Paysage d’Hiver – Das Tor367756

When an album makes you feel like you’re in freezing cold weather as it was supposed to be, you can’t be not considered a genius.

43. Television – Marquee Moon marquee_moon_51b665511e76a

Essential post-punk that I adore the most out of all.

42. The Chemical Brothers – Exit Planet DustThe-Chemical-Brothers-Exit-Planet-Dust-640x640

Makes me wish for a time that Big Beat will become a popular sound again.

41. Patti Smith – Horses  horses-cover_custom-95bd29494bd12ecab828302378aa305f62fb5ccf-s900-c85

I would not consider Patti Smith post-punk, just Patti punk.

40. Creedence Clearwater Revival – Chronicle: The 20 Greatest HitsMUDD2456

I normally don’t care for greatest hits but honestly, this is all the Creedence you could ever ask for.

39. Wu-Tang Clan – Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)wu_tang_clan_enter_the_wu_tang_36_chambers

There isn’t a single bad member in Wu-Tang in terms of quality, which is why they’re my favorite hip hop group.

38. Beck – Mellow Goldbeck_-_mellow_gold_-_frontThis is the strangest Beck will ever be, hence why I think it’s his best.

37. Talking Heads – Remain in Lightremain-in-lightOne of the few attempts of amalgamating different genres into one and making it a genre of its own: Talking Heads.

36. Autechre – AmberR-2494-1159814235.jpegLove everything in their discography, but as someone who loves ambience more than anything in electronic music this one takes the cake.

35. David Bowie – Low2a09604e

Brian Eno and David Bowie. There will never be a better duo in music production ever and this album proves it.

34. Ornette Coleman – The Shape of Jazz to ComeOrnette_Coleman_Shape_of_Jazz_to_come_album_cover.jpg.CROP.promovar-mediumlarge

Avant-Garde Jazz of my choice. Only because it actually takes you into a different dimension as Avant-Garde is supposed to do.

33. Nas – Illmatic  1370898658_nasalbum

There is a reason why Nas is one of the greats and that’s because he can’t top off anything greater than this treasure.

32. Flying Lotus – Los Angeles  R-1361198-1423984364-2531.jpeg

You can’t go wrong with old-school hip hop beats by Flying Lotus.

31. FKA twigs – LP1 77756b16

Is it too Pop to be Alternative or Experimental? Well, she has a voice that can make my dick hard as a rock so I don’t care.

30.  The Jesus and Mary Chain – Psychocandy1dae77e6

Love me some noise pop and I have yet to see any recent band of the genre to try to out noise this one.

29. Pig Destroyer – Prowler in the YardPig-Destroyer-Prowler-in-the-Yard-620x620

Grindcore at its finest. Only because it sounds like they actually put some thought into it.

28. Nine Inch Nails – The Downward Spiral  nine_inch_nails_the_downward_spiral_a

I know all industrial elitists hate Trent Reznor’s guts but I at least respect the guy for the amount of creativity he puts into the concept and sound all by himself.

27. The Prodigy – Music for the Jilted Generation20-years-on-the-prodigys-music-for-the-jilted-generation-1422361347758

I don’t dance but when I do, I put this on and act like a fucking my hottest waifu in the ass.

26. The Stone Roses – The Stone Rosesthe-stone-roses-628

The only Madchester album you need to listen to, if that even is considered a genre anymore.
