Top 21 Greatest Music Albums by nashd (2019)

My favorite albums. As you can see I have a lot of love for post-punk and shoegazing. This will be chopped and changed quite a bit.

Unknown Pleasures is the pinnacle, a horrific and at times bleak atmospheric masterpiece. It's also brought that gothic hopelessness feel to it, Ian Curtis painful vocals resonate throughout with probably the best songs of all time written and produced in"New Dawn Fades". The big tracks also include "Shadowplay", "Day Of The Lords" and "Disorder". "Shes Lost Control" is terrifying on how Curtis explains how a friend of his struggles through ellipse.

good stuff so far. For shoegaze, I'd recommend:
Panda Riot - Infinity Maps
Alison's Halo - Eyedazzler
Galaxie 500 - On Fire
Deafcult - Auras

Yeah I am also curious as to the Arctic Monkeys pick but taste is taste! Most of the rest of this top 10 looks fantastic. Definitely a treasure trove of shoegaze and dreampop. Keep it up to 100!
