18 Aug 2012, 15:48 by IrrycoHere follows my ten favorite albums. Many of these albums have been with me for years, one of them is only a year old. I always find new music. In other words, this is the list for 2012, and maybe the list for 2013 will be different. However, one thing is for certain: none of these albums will ever be forgotten.
Astral Weeks - Van Morrison
This album is my very favorite album in the world, but still, it is impossible to describe it with words. It tocuhes something deep within me, that I can relate to. It is as if Van sings about life itself, the way I feel life is like. It's about the lyrics in combination with his voice, the way he sings it, from his heart, and the music, subtle and, at times, heartbreaking, but always hopeful, always forgving, always understanding. But no need for more words, this album needs to be heard to be understood.
Favorite track: Madame George
Blue - Joni Mitchell
With Blue Joni created the most intimate female singer-songwriter album…

15 Dec 2009, 19:51 by likecrocodiles151. Why? - Rubber Traits
I love the subtle stuff going in the background of this song, especially the vocals between 1:00 and 1:30.
152. Animal Collective - Safer
Animal Collective doesn't make songs this weird anymore, unfortunately. There is so much to love here: the looping piano, the assorted screaming ("I'M ALRIIIIIIGHT!" and "Now don't get too freaky on me!"). Also, my last.fm username comes from this song, so I couldn't not include it.
153. Joanna Newsom - Sawdust & Diamonds
If you've been paying attention you'll notice that every track from Ys is on this list. If I had to get rid of one, I guess it would be this one, but that doesn't mean it's not an incredibly good song. The highlight: "I wasn't born of a whistle or milked from a thistle at twilight. No, I was all horns and thorns, sprung out fully-formed, knock-kneed and upright. So enough of this terror, we deserve to know light and grow evermore lighter and lighter..."
154. And So I Watch You From Afar - Set Guitars to Kill
14 Dec 2009, 17:56 by likecrocodiles101. Muse - Map Of Your Head
Impressively, this is one of two Muse B-sides on the list, showing the depth of their catalogue.
102. Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Maps
This was released back in 2003 and it still feels fresh.
103. Death Cab for Cutie - Marching Bands of Manhattan
Okay, the lyrics are mostly cringe-worthy (except for the part about living like a hermit in your own head), but it's a great tune.
104. Oceansize - Massive Bereavement
Oceansize is probably the most underrated band of our time. The climax of this song is mind-blowing.
105. Slow Club - Me And You
"I've got a feeling someone else is reading the letters I wrote to you."
"Well my pet's illiterate and I live alone, so it's someone in betwixt of me and you."
106. The Mars Volta - Meccamputechture
They manage to make a saxophone sound menacing, which is an accomplishment in itself.
107. Oceansize - Meredith
The first Oceansize song I really loved. Apparently this was on The O.C.?
108. The National - Mistaken for Strangers

I'm not changing it now.
