I don’t feel complete unless I’ve compiled a list ranking my favorite music of the year (too many NYEs spent up late listening to the top 100 countdown on the headphones.) So, here goes:
swan lake enemy mine
genre death folk glam metal
sounds like angels riding a thunderstorm. peaceful venom. splatter painting the cosmos. seasick wormholes. wounded soldiers in an alternate history montmartre. a drunken barn-raising. birds of paradise fluttering within a rambling glass conservatory.
notes song title warlock psychiatrist most aptly describes the album.
verdict just short of blown away again.
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.)
