Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Asunder, Sweet and Other Distress
While not as long or sprawling as some of Godspeeds prior works, I personally feel Asunder, Sweet and Other Distress still manages to deliver that glorious feeling of your mind being blown like no other band quite can. The drone pieces are a little unneeded, and perhaps more time should have been put in building up to the great crescendos that GY!BE is known for, but still great album.
The Money Store
A game-changer in Hip Hop. I really hated this on first listen. You have to really force yourself to listen all the way through to enjoy it. The production is probably my favourite part of this album along with the really angry vocals. This album is overall consistent all the way through and should be regarded as the "Kid A" of hip hop in general.
Favourite tracks: Get Got, The Hacker, I've Seen Footage, The Fever, System Blower, Lost Boys, Bitch Please, The Cage, Fuck That
