How I would push my fingers through
Your mouth to make those muscles move
That made your voice so smooth and sweet
A record with so much unique power and personality. Mangum's voice here is tremendously hopeful and painful. This is an album that could have a million interpretations and it seems that with each listen, depending on what I'm going through, the music caters to the opposite feeling and always reels me back into the earth. Perfect. [First added to this chart: 02/11/2020]
Now you're all gone, got your makeup on and you're not coming back
The ultimate example of sound = emotion. From the crashing waves of KC Accidental to the subtle murmurings of Anthems of a Teenage Girl to the helpless beckoning of Lover's Spit, this album is as much a cacophony of happiness, sadness, and angst as ITAOTS. It will bring you up over the clouds. [First added to this chart: 02/11/2020]
You're so in love, you're so...
You've suffered long
You're so alone, you're so...
You sigh 'so long'
You sigh 'so long'
It's for a golden-hour summer in the woods, a dark wintery night on a mountain, the first fall of leaves in the autumn and when the snow melts in the spring. It's for every moment, big or small, happy or sad, lonely or comforted. A masterpiece. [First added to this chart: 02/11/2020]
This is really happening
We're not scaremongering
This is really happening
I think that, up until I heard this record, most music I had listened to was fairly "normal" and what I mean by this is that the instruments, melodies, vocals, chords, beats, etc. were all done in familiar, identifiable ways (doesn't mean they were bad or not skillful at all, of course). Then, in early high school, I heard this album and was absolutely rocked. The sounds coming at me were all unfamiliar, aggressive, anxiety-inducing and sometimes scary, and I was shifted into a world that contained all of these elements. I was shifted to a place where I had a fresh mind. A place that I had never experienced before, like a baby, and everything was open to interpretation with no prior bias or familiarity of any sort. That is the power of Kid A. It reinvents the concept of music for you upon your first listen, and submerges you into its world immediately upon further listens. That experience is something that I haven't found with any other album to date. [First added to this chart: 02/18/2020]
The roar of waves,
The pounding surf.
Two bodies on the earth:
It was intense just getting to be there next to you.
One of the most intimate albums I've ever heard, with Phil Elvrum's lyrics pointing the listener to both the gritty, and the beautiful on a journey as experimental and mind-blowing as anything I've listened to before or since. A true masterpiece. [First added to this chart: 02/11/2020]
That can happen to a girl who's already hurt?
I'm already hurt
I knew of Lana for years, enjoyed her older records because her vibe and honest lyrics hit me in a way not many other artists ever have. Then this album came out, I saw the name and wondered if it would be more like the past few releases-- a bit uninspired and kind of relying on the same old techniques that weren't developing as I had hoped they would. I didn't even listen to it until a few months after it had come out, then I did on a solo drive and wow. I don't think I've fallen so hard for an album in a long time. The musical choices here are perfect: the use of her vocals matches the toned-down instrumentals so well and I haven't resonated with lyrics like this in a long long time. The mood she creates here is as atmospheric as anything I've ever listened to and paints so many vivid pictures in my head. I can't even say I'm looking forward to her next album because I'm just so stuck on this one. Every listen feels like the first time again. Truly, a fully-realized, remarkable project.

Appears under your feet
You slip out of your depth and out of your mind
With your fear flowing out behind you
As you claw the thin ice
This album was my musical puberty. I remember being introduced to it because it got frequent airplay on a classic rock station my family listened to, only really hearing songs like Another Brick or Hey You or Comfortably Numb, and didn't really think much about what it all meant but instead just thought they were cool songs. Then I was introduced to the movie and started to think about everything that was really being written about and conveyed. One of the first albums that really made me think about the lyrics in depth. It's a haunting achievement that I'll never stop listening to. [First added to this chart: 02/11/2020]
Just what words should come out? but
"We wish we were dead"
Oh, what a mood this album puts me in. It feels like the music to Dante's Inferno. It feels like the music to the ending of Melancholia. It's the end of everything and, for me, a sordid reflection on what humanity has amounted to. It's a viewpoint seeing the worst in us from the grave and forces you to see the worst in yourself while listening... but, of course, in the most beautiful of ways.

Really appreciate this chart and I think it is excellent! Weird that you have Antlers Burst Apart on here because while I was looking at this a song of theirs from the album was stuck in my head. Also a Perfume Genius song haha. Checked this out because of your comment on the new Perfume Genius and you already have it on your top hundred, that's really cool, it is very good.
Awesome list, I love a lot of these albums.
This chart is awesome, in every different sight. Sure, I love your new entries (car seat, spoon) but also it's nice to explore some artists thats I didn't know
