Outstanding albums

Post by slumberjack » Sat Aug 25, 2018 8:24 am

Hi cats!

You're invited to post albums which are outstanding to you, chosen with following attributes:

Albums where you CAN'T define your favourite song out of the other songs - because there are simply so many you should mention.

To keep it simple just name of the artist and title of the album!

I start >

Low - Secret Name
Philip Glass - Glassworks
Jan Jelinek - Tierbetrachtungen
Sublime - 40oz To Freedom
Four Tet - There Is Love In You
Frivolous - Midnight Black Indulgence
Kelley Polar - I Need To Hold On While The Sky Is Falling
Portishead - 3

> and stop for now

Arrange and Process Basic Channel Tracks from Scion really opened up the rabbit hole for me. Such a flowing mix with insane base material.
