Yes, the Music forum still does exist. Post your favourite albums, with a whatever-sized description of why that album is good for you. No compliations. Inb4 Solly/Pants/some faggot posts one just to break the rules, that will honestly annoy me in no way because I don't care anymore if my threads degrade into shit. Also, I'm aware that some people don't buy albums and just download torrents. Honestly, I'm fully aware.
Also, preferably albums you haven't already talked about.
Pearl Jam - Backspacer
Pearl Jam after they dumped their whole 'WE'RE NOT CORPORATE' shit and with New Wave influences turned out to be pretty good. Most of the songs are lively with somewhat enigmatic lyrical content which just requires you to think a little. 'The End' sounds like something Emerson, Lake and Palmer would write, whereas 'Speed Of Sound' sounds like a Randy Newman B-side. A very good album with a lot of variety and very little to criticise. There's also interesting use of keyboards and stringed instruments, which is somewhat rare for a band of this type.
The Mars Volta - The Bedlam In Goliath
I don't particularly like the horrible pseudo-intellectual, essentially meaningless lyrics that Omar pulls out of his ass but I've heard that they compliment the flavour and I guess they're right. The album is a bunch of self-righteous 9 minute tracks that actually never get boring, sounding like everything you've ever heard in every music ever. The random use of synthesizers ensures that you have something to subconsciously comment and note, and the album isn't as annoying and experimental as their other albums.
