A List Of Great Debut Albums

A lot of bands have great debut albums. Obviously this list is just a fraction of all the great debut albums out there, but it's a start. I'll keep expanding this list continuously, so all suggestions are welcome (granted they are featured on MS). All the albums here are ranked according to genre and then alphabetically. If a certain album belongs to the (in your opinion) wrong genre, then definitely let me know.

1. [Avantgarde]
2. Aarni - Bathos
3. Arcturus - Aspera Hiems Symfonia
4. Diablo Swing Orchestra - The Butcher's Ballroom
5. Sadness - Ames De Marbre

Iron's Post-Rock Essentials

What follows is an introductory list to some of post-rock's essential classics, contemporary landmarks as well as a few recent personal favorites - especially the kind I think can show the genre's potential for diversity. If you don't know what post-rock is about, listening to these albums should give you the cultural competence to evaluate new albums and avoid embarassing yourself in dinner party conversations. Post-rock is a controversial and vague term that even some of the genre's central figures refuse to identify with. I've used it in a fairly loose sense, including a wide spectrum of bands that all forgo rock convention.

1. Talk Talk - Spirit Of Eden
2. Slint - Spiderland
3. Stereolab - Switched On
4. Bark Psychosis - Hex
5. Tortoise - Millions Now Living Will Never Die

The Current Decade: 2010-2019: My Opinion: The Truth: Reality

*The title is a joke, of course

The Current Decade (2010-2019) in order of preference. This is separate from my year-lists, which strive to include as many albums from the year as possible regardless of quality. Only albums I deem worthy of a favorites list by personal taste will make it. I'd say Axioma Ethica Odini has a major step up on anything beneath it this decade; it's the only truly perfect album so far in my eyes. Last overhauled: May 13th. Now it's a bit tighter.

1. Enslaved - Axioma Ethica Odini
2. Septicflesh - The Great Mass
3. 40 Watt Sun - The Inside Room
4. Antichrist - Forbidden World
5. Agalloch - Marrow of the Spirit

IMAAAAGINATION! =3

My favorite element about music is probably atmosphere. My mind is a lazy, albeit adventurous, asshole that likes to take vacations whenever it can. And what better than the surprise mental adventures that music takes you on? SHUT UP. SHUT UP. Nothing is better. Whether I'm whisked away on the wings of a dragon, sitting around a campfire with a group of vikings just before battle, wandering around a haunted castle, or floating around FUCKING SPACE, I love these adventures. Yes. Yes, I do. And here are my favorite albums that have incredible atmosphere for me to get lost in. (No particular order)

1. Bal-Sagoth - Battle Magic
2. Arcturus - The Sham Mirrors
3. Green Carnation - Light Of Day, Day Of Darkness
4. Rhapsody Of Fire - Dawn Of Victory
5. Les Discrets - Septembre Et Ses Dernières Pensées
