Default What is your go-to album or albums?

I'm talking about the shit you listen to when nothing else will do the trick. You've listened to this album 86 times and counting, it's always there to fall back on in your time of musical need.

My two are:
Converting Vegetarians II by Infected Mushroom
The Black Parade by MCR

tbh I still haven't heard the black parade, even tho recently it seems like a lot of people have started considering it a classic? maybe not recently but from what I've seen, people are starting to appreciate it more and more.

celer - discourses of the withered
autechre - confield
william basinski - melancholia

all 10/10s imo. discourses of the withered is celer's best work and one of the best drone albums, period. confield is idm at it's most potent and progressive. and melancholia has some really great memories associated with it.

alphabetical order:
36 - Memories in Widescreen
Alva Noto - Xerrox Vol. 3
Bark Psychosis - Hex
Belong - October Language
Celer - Discourses of the Withered
Jefre Cantu-Ledesma - Love Is a Stream
Steve Roach - Darkest Before Dawn
Totorro - All Glory to John Baltor
Robert Rich - Somnium
William Basinski - A Red Score in Tile
William Basinski - Melancholia
Yodaka - Betrayal and Reincarnation

I get alienated really easily, so a lot of the albums listed feel lonely, melancholic, or meditative to some degree. The only album that wouldn't fit the aforementioned three descriptors is Hex, and Hex, to me, is the prettiest album that I've listened to. I usually listen to it in the afternoon when I don't feel too bad.

I used to listen to a few other albums regularly too (Kashiwa Daisuke's 88 and Program Music I, 2814's Birth of a New Day), but I don't listen to them anywhere as often as I used to these days.

edit: nice picks choof

My go-to changes with the wind these days but I would go with Aphex Twin - Selected Ambient Works 85-92. It's sort of like a musical ground state for me, like visiting an old comforting friend.

My two are both "listen to these songs in order or else you're a bastard" albums, so it's basically like a 2 hour song when I listen to them.

the only excuse to not be listening exclusively to full albums in order is if you are listening to classical/jazz or dance music.
otherwise you arent actually listening to music and your brain is just pretending to hear sounds that arent actually entering your ears correctly

I guess I did buy the album

Snarky Puppy - We Like It Here

At a concert, but I still end up youtubing individual tracks when I want to listen to one. I otherwise don't think I've -owned- in any form, a full album of -anything- since I was a teenager.

I think "warrant" isn't the right word to use here.
