Coldplay - A Rush of Blood to the Head
95
This was my favourite album growing up, so it has a lot of sentimental value to me ;~;. Plus the vibe of the album sounds vintage in such a unique way, and I love it.

Joni Mitchell - Blue
88
Although this is a cliched statement, "Blue" is definitely the peak of Joni Mitchell's 1970's minimalist folk style. The storytelling, lyrical imagery, emotion and vocal performances are all flourishing in a way that is truly special.

Joni Mitchell mentioned that "All I Want" has more "tooth" than many of her early songs, which I agree since it carries a unique addicting energy that has a real bite to it. The lyrics express a yearning for a healthy relationship ... read more

King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard - Changes
76
This project may have one of the best front-to-back flows in King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard's catalogue. I listened to it on a jog (Yes I listen to this band while I jog dont @ me) and it truly felt like I listened to one long song. This is largely due to how much of the album is linked by similar chord progressions, conventional jazz rhythms and wacky ass keyboards.

"Changes" was originally planned as the final album to be released in 2017 to finalize their ... read more

Taylor Swift - Midnights
47
After absolutely adoring "folklore" and "evermore", then seeing the 1970s-dreamy aesthetic that was associated with this album's marketing, and also having a piece of my car stolen >:C and wanting a little pick-me-up ... I was anticipating this release, but met with disappointment :(.

This project contains intriguing personal themes, with the term "midnight" representing various forms of self-discovery during late nights. A unique personal element is that ... read more

King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard - Laminated Denim
72
"Laminated Demin" was titled as an anagram from its sister album "Made in Timeland". This project was birthed prior to "Ice, Death, Planets, Lungs, Mushrooms and Lava", and after their jam-fueled "The Dripping Tap" from "Omnium Gatherum". They enjoyed working together in this lengthy improvised fashion after the COVID-19 lockdowns, so they kept it up. This project also holds a unique improvisational flair that's fun to experience.

Joni Mitchell - Ladies of the Canyon
72
"We are stardust, we are golden. We are caught in the devil's bargain. And we've got to get ourselves. Back to the garden." These lyrics are from one of Joni Mitchell's most popular songs, "Woodstock," which reflects how the human race is connected by beauty yet constantly guided by repulsive intentions. This idea is emphasized by more lyrics that contrast the horror of the Cold War and the rejoiceful events at Woodstock.

"Woodstock" also sounds so sad which ... read more

Hello Bimapolis! I'm working on a community list for the top 50 jazz records of all time (any subgenre with jazz counts as well). What are your top 5 favorite jazz albums of all time? Thank you in advance if you choose to participate!!!

"Velocity : Design : Comfort just chilling"

But yeah I understand why "Souvlaki" is your favorite shoegze album, it was mine as well when I was around 17-18 years old, but unfortunately it's grown off me heavy and "Velocity : Design : Comfort" took its place, speaking of Velocity : Design : Comfort I better change it into shoegaze, thanks for the suggestion I really appreciate it.

Sup Bimapolis!

I made a genre list of every album I enjoy in each genre and if you want I'd like some suggestions for albums in a genre either I didn't list, an album that you would deem better in that genre or for inaccuracies.

Here's the link:
