#10 Main Source - Breaking Atoms
I fought with myself to slide "Madvillainy" or "Black On Both Sides" into this number 10 spot. But as much as I love the both of those I guess I'm just a sucker for the classic 90's sound found on this album and the nine that follow it. Kicking the list off is this classic from one of my personal favourite beat-makers, Large Professor. He just has a way with what he does that is just classic. The highlight for me being "Vamos A Rapair", with it's funky ass beat. Whenever I pull this one out I have vivid memories of watching through The Wire for the first time. Must have been a couple of nights there where I was marathoning through Season 4, listening to this each night beforehand and getting in the mood to watch that bad motherfucker Marlo and those poor kids' struggles haha. Having said that, the album isn't faultless by any stretch. …

3 Apr 2011, 07:16 by chrisjon89I'm gonna keep this in alphabetical order for my own sake, and only one album per artist which makes things a bit more difficult. I realise there's not enough modern music on here so I'll make another journal later to address that. Some of the album covers are stupidly big and I'll try to fix that up later too.
Arcade Fire - Funeral (2004)
This one edges out Neon Bible and The Suburbs for me. Great album with some real standout songs, "Wake Up" being the obvious choice, or "Rebellion (Lies)". The vocals (and production in general) aren't as polished as they'd be on the subsequent releases but it fits perfectly.
At the Drive-In - Relationship of Command (2000)
I heard 'One Armed Scissor' and didn't listen to this again for months, but I'm glad I came back to it because it became one of my favourites. …
