Crystal Stilts were all like, “hey let’s dress up like Velvet Underground circa 1960-something-or-other and then play some music that sounds like Joy Division circa Warsaw-era and then let’s throw them a left hook by breaking out into this face-melting-reverbed-harmonica-mind-jam that sounds like Clinic ate a Roxy Music album and then spewed it out their nostrils in a rainbow hallucination and then we know for sure that Peter will really like it.”
Yah, basically it was the reverb harmonica that won Peter over. Quickly.

These are albums I love listening to from beginning to end and have a magical appeal no matter the time, place or mood. These are not necessarily the albums I respect the most. In other words: this is a list of what I consider to be my favorite albums—but not, in all cases, what I consider to be the best albums. I’ve listed them in chronological order of discovery (I guess I didn’t discover anything good during college years: 1995-1998.)
