i made this topic foreeever ago on azuri but rly wanted to remake it here!

i'm really bad at finding favorite artists or favorite genres, since i go back and forth between them and rarely really focus on them in that way... but what I do love, is finding favorite albums that I always come back to. I could be in LOVE with an album but never really get into other stuff by that artist... or i'll love every album by an artist and enjoy seeing how they compare... either way I just find albums absolute works of art in the way they decide to compile and make the tracks flow together (or not!), so i wanted a topic to discuss them.

what are your favorite albums? if you'd find it fun, maybe make a top 5/10 list as well=)

I cant really rank them but i'd say

Twenty one Pilots - Self Titled
Twenty one Pilots - Regional at Best
Twenty one Pilots - Blurryface
Twenty one PIlots - Trench
Cage the Elephant - Melophobia

And no, Twenty one Pilots and Cage aren't the only bands I listen to, but any other artists I only like a few songs from.

For the most part I only enjoy a few songs from each album I listen to. There are three major exceptions.

Third favorite: Emotion by Carly Rae Jepson
Jepson’s lyrics and production here are noticeably better than in her older albums. The synths are pleasant to listen to, and her voice sounds more distinct. There’s also a “B Side” that includes some cut songs. Highly recommend both this album and the “B Side” to anyone who likes synth pop.

Standout Tracks: Making the Most of the Night, I Really Like You, and Run Away With Me

Second favorite: 24k Magic by Bruno Mars
There’s a sense of energy in this album that I wish more newer pop music had. Mars sounds like he had a blast preforming every song, and his silky smooth voice carries the whole thing. The only thing holding this album back is the short length. Otherwise, I wouldn’t change a thing.

Standout Tracks: That’s What I Like, 24K Magic, Too Good To Say Goodbye

Absolute favorite: Punch by Autoheart Spotify recommended one of the songs in this album and after enjoying it, I gave the rest a listen. I do not regret that decision. The combination of synths and live instruments work incredibly well together. Their follow up album We Can Build a Fire is pretty good too, but I prefer the sound of Punch.

Standout Tracks: Moscow, Anniversary, Agoraphobia, Heartbreaker

There is only 1 good album:

The Black Parade by My Chemical Romance

I also really like That's The Spirit by Bring Me The Horizon, but as far as albums go, most are a miss for me.

I've always been a fan of an album as a package rather than just an assortment of songs the artist wrote over a period of time. I may add to this list later, but there are several that stand out to me.

The Black Parade - My Chemical Romance
The junior album of MCR. IT's the one that most people end up pointing to when they think of MCR's work. It's honestly my second favorite, but Is till love it and it's overall story that's kinda there along with the great songs. In my opinion, the album slowing down works well story wise, but kind of kills it for me as it feels like it falls off a cliff after House of Wolves and doesn't come back on till halfway through Sleep.

Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys - My Chemical Romance
The last album MCR put out and quite possibly my favorite. While the concept behind the album isn't as powerful as CANCER, I feel the album has more memorable songs across and equal amount of listens as The Black Parade. The album does slow down at the beginning of the third act like their previous album, but it doesn't fall off a cliff.

Gorrilaz - Gorrilaz
Just as a warning, Demon Days isn't going to be this list. Not because I think it's a bad album but because I feel it's more unbalanced. It has several really good songs and then a bunch of stuff that to me isn't the best work Gorrilaz has to offer. It feels like they were trying to replicated the experimentation this album had but make it have marketable singles that don't exactly fit in. This album is full of wonky **** from Double Bass to Latin Simone and overall a joy to experience.

Plastic Beach - Gorillaz
Plastic Beach is my favorite Gorillaz album due to how it fits together so well but still encapsulates the versatility Gorrilaz has. Easily my favorite album. Just listen to it.

Madvillainy - Madvillain
This is another album that you should just take my word on and listen to. MF DOOM is a great rapper using creative lyrics and toying with the concepts of rapping to create a really neat lyrical experience. Along with this, Madlib can't go unappreciated for his work on this album either. There's a reason fans are clamoring for a sequel years later.

Flamingo & Koval - Bobby Feeno
A hip-hop/rap album from an ex-NFL player doesn't sound like a great idea until you hear it for yourself. Taking up the pseudonym Bobby Feeno, Arian Foster puts together a simply beautiful experience with brilliant lyrics. My favorite track from this song would have to be Amen with his sampling of televangelists mixed in with him criticizing them. I highly recommend it.

Ocean Eyes - Owl City
Yes, this is the album Fireflies comes from. Yes this a good album. It's very chill. Check it out.

Death of a Bachelor - Panic! At The Disco
I like Brendon Urie a lot and love his work. I think that this is my only exception o liking an album as a whole just due to how jam packed it is with great songs. This album has Victorious, Don't Threaten Me With a Good Time, Hallelujah, Emperor's New Clothes, Death of a Bachelor, and LA Devotee as its singles and the five remaining songs can be considered just as good if not better.

Hellbilly Deluxe - Rob Zombie
Welcome to Rob Zombie. An album inspired by heavy metal, electronic music, and classic horror detailing topics such as the supernatural, chaos, and murder. It is truly an experience for more than just B-Movie appeal. You may have heard a couple songs from this album, namely Dragula and Living Dead Girl. Just dig through the ditches and burn through the witches.

Nobody here ever listen to DGD I see 😞

Aight here's my list in no particular order but DGD ones like Happiness are obvs prioritized cos best band.

Savages - Breathe Carolina
Happiness - Dance Gavin Dance
Downtown Battle Mountain Pt. II - Dance Gavin Dance - exception because this is my #1 FAVE. Elder Goose, Purple Reign, and Strawberry Swisher Pt.2 make this album everything. It's like the holy ****ing trinity of music. Listen to all 3 if you haven't. it's the dragon's decree.
Artificial Selection - Dance Gavin Dance
Mothership - Dance Gavin Dance
Acceptance Speech - Dance Gavin Dance - also an exception... it's tied with Downtown Battle Mountain Pt. II, **** man. It's amazing fml. Honey Revenge is def my fave off of this album, and obviously I can't exclude Acceptance Speech itself! Amazing songs <3
Hello Fascination and Hell Is What You Make It - definitely the best 2 Breathe Carolina albums. Savages good too tho.

I'll edit later with more good 1s that aren't BC/DGD
