    As some of you may know, I'm a complete music nerd/snob/aficionado, and I'm always curious to hear about others' tastes. So, in this thread, I'd like to ask you all: What are some of your favorite albums? What long-form collections of music bring you cathartic or intellectual pleasure? No minimum/maximum number, no ranking required, and if you feel like doing EPs, singles, or what have you instead, feel free! Anyway, here's my list (limiting myself to ones I discovered this year):

    The Brave Little Abacus- Just Got Back From the Discomfort, We're Alright
    Car Seat Headrest- Twin Fantasy or Monomania
    Daniel Johnston- Hi, How Are You
    Jordaan Mason and the Horse Museum- Divorce Lawyers I Shaved My Head
    mewithoutYou: Brother, Sister or Ten Stories
    Nouns- Still
    Various Artists- PC Music Volume 1
    Ricky Eat Acid- Three Love Songs
    Sufjan Stevens- Carrie and Lowell
    Teen Suicide- I Will Be My Own Hell Because There Is A Devil Inside My Body

    Miracle Musical by Hawaii Part II
    Created by a musician from Tally Hall, this album has to be one of my favorite insanities.

    Home by the Head
    Loud Christian hard rock. What could go wrong?

    Innocence and Instinct by RED
    Simply put, I love Confessions.

    Release the Panic by RED
    Different from their other albums, yet still great. I really enjoy Perfect Life and Hold Me Now.

    Anarchy, My Dear by Say Anything
    This album grew on me.

    Ocean Eyes by Owl City
    While I do like his newer albums, I really like the first one best.

    Letters to the President by Hawk Nelson
    This album and up to Made, are my favorite punk rock albums. In Made, they lost their main singer and became a regular mundane Christian band.

    Rise by Skillet
    It grew on me like a fungus.

    Billy Talent II by Billy Talent
    Billy Talent got talent.

    How To Train Your Dragon by John Powell
    One of the reasons why I love the movie was the soundtrack.

    In the End There's Only Love by Ewert and the Two Dragons
    Gotta love this Estonian indie band!

    Anything by Rush! But if I had to pick my favorite album from them would be Roll The Bones. I also enjoy Disturbed and Five Finger Death Punch. But that's just one end of the spectrum I love music by Willam like Ride For AIDS and I love Taylor swift. I try to keep my taste broad. I try not to say I hate an artist until ive heard their music first. And I'm loving all this new music listed it's great! XD

    I've been listening to a lot of my vinyl collection lately, and it's really nice to revisit some of the favorites that I found through my parents.

    Harry Nilsson- The Point and Nilsson Schmilsson
    The Hollies
    The Moody Blues- In Search of the Lost Chord
    King Crimson- In The Court of the Crimson King
    Carole King- Tapestry
    The Beatles- Abbey Road
    Alan Parson's Project- Tales of Mystery and Imagination

    I have a lot of their other old albums and I haven't gotten to listen to them yet. Those are just the ones that stick out to me right now.

    Favorite albums of this year have to be
    Carrie & Lowell - Sufjan Stevens (Seeing him live in November)
    Born Under Saturn - Django Django
    I know it's meager but I've been out of it in terms of music this year and I wanted to stay limited to work that was published in 2015 HAH.

    Draconic
    Iron Maiden - Brave new world.
    Nightwish - Oceanborn
    Sabaton - Art of war
    Gustav Holst - The planets suite

    Those are the ones i find myself listening to quite allot anyway, there are individual songs that I prefer from other albums, often more than any of the songs in these albums, but all the music within these ones are consistantly good. The last one while not strictly an album is close enough I feel to include here and has some incredible orchestral pieces to it, inspired half the sci-fi theme music out there.

    I must add "The Broken Bride" by Ludo. The whole album tells a story about a man who builds a time machine to save his dead wife.

    I am not one for albums, mostly I just listen to the same songs; with every once and while, stumbling across songs I have never heard of-and come to enjoy.
    Some bands I enjoy are ~
    She! (Favorite song being Atomic.)
    Limp Bisket
    Breaking Benjamin
    A Perfect Circle
    Get Scared
    Carlprit & Cascada
    Gorillaz
    Simon Curtis
    Prince
    Imagine Dragons
    Meg & Dia
    Starset
    Three Days Grace
    Gregorian
    Hollywood Undead
    Coheed & Cambria
    Blessthefall
    12 Stones
    Pink Floyd
    Additionally, this song gets its own little place; simply because I love it so much.
    It is quite the calming song, besides it being about insanity. >.<
