Car Seat Headrest - Twin Fantasy (Face to Face)
Matador Records

Indie Rock

Arguably the best Indie Rock album of all time for me. The guitar driven and anthemic choruses are irresistible. Will Toledo’s poignant lyricism makes this album relatable in ways other albums could only dream to be.

Radiohead - Amnesiac
Capitol Records

Experimental Rock

Unpopular opinion, but my personal favorite Radiohead album. Its widely known as being the separately released B-sides to Kid A, which many consider to be the superior body of work, but for me I would say that I prefer the unfinished and unanswered feel that Amnesiac has. I lean more towards lo-fi aesthetics and have just always preferred that album.

Track Ranking

Knives Out (100)
I Might Be Wrong (100)
Packt Like Sardines (100)
You and Whose Army? (100)

Slint - Spiderland
Touch and Go Records


Quite easily one of the most unnerving musical experiences I have ever had. This album is so damn memorable from start to finish. One of the most interesting backstories behind an album as well, Ill link the documentary below.


Track Ranking

Nosferatu Man (100)
Breadcrumb Trail (100)
Don, Aman (100)
Washer (96)
Good Morning, Captain (95)
For Dinner... (89)

Cumulative Score: 96.7
Given Score: 100
Geffen Records


Without a doubt the most iconic album of the 1990s as far of the mainstream perception of music is concerned. Kurt Cobain has remained one of music history's most transcendent figures. There are hundred of kids my age that I know that are just absolutely obsessed with him and his music, even though his demise came nearly a decade before their inceptions. Every song on this album is very good and energetic and memorable. Truly an amazing remnant of the 90s to be left behind for generations to come.

Frank Ocean - Blonde

A beautifully crafted rnb records. All of the songs on this record have become anthems for the kids in my generation. His lyrics resonate with me so well and the production is just so beautiful throughout the entirety of this thing. A transcendent record that will still be loved 20 years from now.
