scoutyV2

plastic beach - gorillaz


Any-Ad3943

Classic


SydVicarious

Solid. Their first three full albums are amazing. I can never decide between Gorillaz, Demon Days and Plastic Beach


RemarkableAd2009

Empire ants is amazing


LilBuffDude

Probably plastic beach for me too man. There's just singing about the those songs and come on, melancholy hill instant classic


sucre_glace

nice one, i would have said Demon Days personally


ChoicePoet

Age of Adz by Sufjan


BaenjiTrumpet

Carrie and Lowell too..


mojakcognac

John Coltrane - My favorite things or Jeff Buckley Grace


Dey1in

is this it - the strokes


No_Estimate1127

Is it just me or do a lot of Kanye fans like the Strokes? My friend introduced me to them and he’s a hardcore Kanye fan too


[deleted]

I remember there was a playlist curated by Kanye on iTunes many years ago, and Kanye listed The Strokes as one of his favorite bands. There’s definitely a connection between Kanye and The Strokes


everyseason

Their newest album was produced by Rick Ruben. So the connection can be easy to get into


__QYURRYUS__

The Adults Are Talking is so fucking good


MarvelousNCK

The New Abnormal as a whole was one of my favorites from 2020


fukdot

Gonna float a theory and if I’m wrong I’ll take the downvotes. If you’re a Kanye fan in their late 30s, Is This It was about the only rock album you could put on at a party and not get heckled into switching it back to hip hop.


ArseneLupinIV

The Strokes is like the perfect 'vibes' music to put on for like a more low key house gathering. It's energetic enough to keep people tuned in, but not like overwhelmingly turnt up and in your face.


billytheskidd

Basically the strokes are just super good. They’re interesting, relatable, badass like we wish we were, and catchy. It’s kinda insane they’ve stayed on the fray of being underground. I mean I know they’re low key super huge but like the strokes have gotten like a third of the recognition they deserve. They should have been as big as the killers.


plugdiamonds

Pretty much spot on!


cutchisclutch22

I feel like the overlap is definitely there. They also tend to love tame impala.

Mtitan1

Fantastic choice. A landmark/defining album in modern alt rock. Love this one so much


mrmclainy

Was literally going to reply with this. ITI is perfect front to back.


SoComeOnWilfriedBony

their newest album is fire too


mrmclainy

Dude fr it's so gas


Hesdonemiraclesonm3

The Fragile by Nine Inch Nails. If you like Yeezus check it out


BillyCahstiganJr

the downward spiral is their magnum opus imo though. one of the best albums oat


gateronYellow_good

Loveless - MBV


Shaman19911

Facts, can't believe this is so low. mbv slaps ass too

Random Acces Memories by Daft Punk


ChocolateHumunculous

‘Touch’ belongs in a museum.


Just_Rice

Top 10 song oat honestly


ChocolateHumunculous

Just listened to it twice. What an ensemble.


wackocommander00

Instant Crush is a classic


HiPryce

Charli XCX - How I'm Feeling Now


FreshW18

I wish she made more songs like "pink diamond". The whole album is great, but that song is so damn good.


DiscussionEvoke

I have it on vinyl, great album I prefer Pop 2 though definitely


Mdepel

Animals by Pink Floyd


mrdonatello98

Yep! Piggybacking on this one


So-they-dont-see

I got WYWH


BuffaloVortex

stone… stone… stone….


Bleep_Blorp28

Kid A


fukdot

Great choice. Radiohead also hits the sweet spot that I really respect Kanye for, they excelled in their craft in one genre and then transcended that genre and continued being great.


Bleep_Blorp28

They’re also an artist that continues to change their sound every release like Kanye.


FlyLo21

Ahh yes, Radiohead’s Yeezus


SydVicarious

That album changed the way I hear music singlehandedly


ArseneLupinIV

Kid A I think was the first time that I feel like I've ever been 'blown away' by music. Like dude how is someone creative enough to create that?


SydVicarious

I was in a dark spot when I first heard “How to Disappear Completely” and I finally understand how powerful music can attach to your emotions. Just simply one of the most iconic projects of any group of all time.


Lucille_Thirsty

How to disappear completely is one of the best song of all time


Mtitan1

Preferred OK Computer, but Kid A is amazing


ISM_654

Wow you all have great taste in music


trevrichards

Well we are Ye fans. 😎🌊


besteboi

Radiohead - In Rainbows


__Scribbles__

Weird Fishes and Jigsaw Falling Into Place are two of the greatest songs of all time and everybody who thinks otherwise is wrong

Taste


bluebunglebee

drukqs by aphex twin. Not the album I'd introduce someone to him or the genre, but it weirdly reminds me a little of tlop, being a bit all over the place, having strange interludes throughout but ultimately building toward a fantastic overall mood and sound.


SydVicarious

Also Kanye sampled April 14 for Blame Game


notspoon

1999, by Prince. Released at the height of the Cold War, it’s an album about partying at the end of the world. We’re not going to make it to the year 2000, so tonight we party like it’s 1999 baby!


shamwow-salesman

1999 is such a great album. First half are the club bangers and the second half is more experimental. Prince is definitely my favorite artist but idk if I like 1999 or Sign “☮️” The Times more.


LilScottWeb

Nevermind. It’s punkish but not like Bleach, and it’s poppy, but not like straight sellout pop lol.


MartialLizard75

The Wall - Pink Floyd I know some people who like Pink Floyd are annoying “born in the wrong generation” type people but seriously, this album is fantastic front to back.

Currents - Tame Impala


Mtitan1

Absolute banger. The bass and beats on that album vibe so hard


ArlaKoldskaal

I have no idea how a single person made this album, it’s miraculous how talented and creative Kevin is. It feels like Currents was tailor made for my ears specifically


calledtoaction1

Lonerism is also insane

Giles Corey by Giles Corey. At least, that’s my favorite right now.


bluebunglebee

Amazing album. I listened to it the first time on the train basically drifting in and out of consciousness and it was an incredibly haunting experience. I'm a massive fan of Have a Nice Life too. Obviously deathcon is great but The Unnatural World is up there for my favourite album of all time.

Nirvana - Nevermind I listen to 95% hip hop but Nevermind may be my favorite, if not most listened to, album of all time


connor-marshall

Not necessarily my favourite non hip hop album but “awaken my love” is a good example of a rapper not rapping on an album
