Instead of writing AOTMs or pointless blogs I decided to make this pointless list to talk about my favorite albums!

It's impossible to put these in different ranks, instead I will treat them as equals and list then here:

Anthropocentric by The Ocean
Lovely, atmospheric, progressive and so on, life changing musical experience.
My favorite Metal album of all time, has pretty much all the aspects needed to be the best. I especially love the lyrics, that keep me interested from time to time.

Cosmogramma by Flying Lotus
Amazing "instrumental" hip-hop experience, fusing various sounds from glitch, world fusion, jazz, soul etc. This was my portal to the beat-world of hip-hop. There ain't words to describe this masterpiece, or I am just retarded, anyways perfect!

Downtown Battle Mountain II by Dance Gavin Dance
This was my gateway to loving all the other albums of this band, but this is easily their best. Cannot get enough of this album, it's my addiction, I listen to it almost every day. The vocalization and instrumentation is laid down perfectly.

Heliocentric by The Ocean
The elder sister of Antropocentric, a little bit more "avant-garde creative" and symphonically enhanced prog'n'roll. I didn't enjoy it as much as Anthropocentric, but it's so amazing that it can fit to this list. Compared to it's little brother it's much more whimsical. Really good.

Muukalainen Puhuuby Oranssi Pazuzu
The psych rock/black metal experience that just amazed me. This is that kinda stuff that goes from day to day never getting old. Catchy more "lighter" black metal side that is quirky but freaking amazing. Dark, psychedelic and jazzy.

Los Angeles by Flying Lotus
A really dope, but the most "conservative" album from all of his work.
The beats have been honed to perfection, lovely experience. It feels more professionalized to one style than 1983 or Cosmogramma. Amazing production, masterpiece don't miss it!

Souvenirs d'Un Autre Monde by Alcest
The post-metal album that I hold near to my heart. This album was the thing that got me really into the "third wave of Black metal". Alcest was also my gateway to French music scene. This album is so beautiful that I could just start to cry. Excellent instrumentation, really a good way to escape the more harsher edge of Metal.

Weighing Souls With Sand by The Angelic Process
I never heard of this band before this album. When I listened to it for the first time I was instantly sucked into its dark and vast world. Atmosphere is crushingly bittersweet, marvelous and powerful. There is no other band that made me feel this way. This band grew recently a lot on my charts. There are times when I listen to this band, but recently I haven't been able to. This album is larger than life.

Crack the Skye by Mastodon
The best album from Mastodon, this was the album that got me really into this amazing Metal band. This album is one of my top metal albums, really good stuff. It's wild, interesting, powerful, abrasive, strong and skillful. I just want to jump everywhere from the amount of energy on this album, or headbang my hair out of my head.

Écailles de Lune by Alcest
The more harsher version of Souvenirs, a really well done album, beautiful, colorful album filled with ocean landscape in the moonlight.
Cold but amazingly marvelous soundscape, shows the more Black metal side of Alcest, still keeping it's sophisticated grace.


(If there are any typos, I won't be correcting 'em, making this was already too much of me...)

Thanks :) -Alex
