Albums That You Can Get Lost in

Hold on, let me explain.

While I was walking between classes today I realized that there aren't many albums where I like every song in them. I can just get lost few in these albums with having to skip a song I don't like.

For me, out of all of the albums I've listened to, these albums are easy to get lost in; Slipknot's self titled album, System Of A Down's self titled album, Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses) by Slipknot, Sounding the Seventh Trumpet by Avenged Sevenfold, and Desolation of Eden by Chelsea Grin. I don't know why, I just like every song on these albums, and I find that rare. It might not be the same for you guys though.

What about you guys? Is liking every song on an album rare or common for you? Are there any reasons why?

Eulogy for Evolution by Ólafur Arnalds. It isn't even my most-played album, but wow, is it ever amazing. All of the songs flow together nicely, they're all beautiful, and it's just a very well-put-together album.

Also, Carolus Rex by Sabaton. Both the English and Swedish versions are amazing and equally good; I usually listen to them back-to-back. The vocals, I think, are an improvement from their earlier albums. And the overall theme of the rise and fall of the Swedish empire comes through wonderfully in the songs.

Finally, Hardt regn by Skambankt. I can't think of a single song on this album that I don't like, which is quite a feat considering the rest of Skambankt's discography leaves me feeling a little cold.

It's actually rare for me to like the majority or all the songs on an album. I'm a pick-and-chooser when it comes to music, so I only like a select number of songs from various artists and albums. There comes a time, however, when I get truly inspired by an artist, and that has only happened once with Owl City. I've memorized a lot of lyrics from his songs, and most if not all of his music I thoroughly enjoyed. I'm currently attempting to listen through all of Zedd's and Krewella's albums right now to see how I like their music. So far it's pretty good.

I don't really see albums, when I buy them, as a collection of songs, but instead as piece of art. A lot of people tend to judge albums on it's singles, but to really get the feel for an album you have to sit down and listen to it a good few times. When I purchase [mebby illegally download...] a new album, I spend a good few hours listening to it, while I'm relaxing or doing other various activities. Usually to judge an album for what it is you have to analyse the entire package and it's meaning rather than just individual songs.

So for me, I judge an album as a piece of art and it'll take me a while to mull over and come to conclusion on it. I do of course judge each individual song, but for me it's about the entire thing. Sorry I've went off on a slight tangent; anyway here's my list of said albums (in no particular order):

  • Greatest Hits - Tupac
  • Eyes Open - Snow Patrol
  • Channel Orange - Frank Ocean
  • Chocolate Factory - R Kelly
  • Life After Death - Notorious B.I.G
  • Camp - Childish Gambino
  • Late Registration - Kanye West
  • Nostalgia Ultra - Frank Ocean
  • The Documentary - The Game
  • Get Rich or Die Tryin' - 50 Cent
  • Curtain Call: The Hits - Eminem
  • Illmatic - Nas
  • Hot Fuss - The Killers
  • Born Sinner - J Cole
  • Tha Carter IV - Lil Wayne
  • Confessions - Usher
  • Good Kid Mad City - Kendrick Lamar
  • Take Care - Drake
  • We Bought a Zoo - Jonsi
  • Kaleidoscope Dream - Miguel
  • House of Balloons - The Weekend
  • The Best of Nelly - Nelly
  • Until Now - Swedish House Mafia
