Oh, fuck yeah, man. Dax's two solo albums would also receive a 100% rating from me. And probably the two Acid Bath albums, too. Haha.


Any love for Agents of Oblivion? I loved the album they released.

EITS is kind of the archetypical band for me. I know they weren't the first but they are arguably the most popular (behind who? Mogwai, GY!BE, that one Japanese band whose name eludes me at the moment?)


The lovely Mono?

MONO! Good lord I kept wanting to say Mute or Muse or Fact, three bands I know aren't even close, only one of which actually even being Japanese, none of which being post rock. I don't know why I blanked out so hard. I knew it was four letters and started with M, for what it's worth :lol:

They already got a mention from me in this thread, haha. Fantastic album, god damn shame they split up right after that.

Mono are probably my favourite of the soft, loud, soft, loud, really soft, then really really loud guitar driven post rock bands.

I have one:

Ralph Towner - Solstice

instrumental jazz that is both really complex and atmospheric. Only the intro would allready be enough for a song

I recently gave a listen to Rawayana's "Licensia Para Ser Libre", an Indie/Folk/Reggae band from my country, really proud of these guys! Their music has a chill out vibe and most of their compositions always have an interesting musical arrangement, with fun lyrics and videos.

Great album, check it out :-P

Just got Dax Rigg's album "Say Goodnight to the World". Holy shit is all I have to say. Its to early to say if I like it more than Deadboy and the Elephentmen's "If this is Hell then I'm Lucky" (another album I'd give 100%.) This is very different than the Deadboy stuff, but both are exceptional. This is some great singer/songwriter stuff, very spaced out at times. A few Rock'n'Roll songs thrown in too.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pZMq9YRL6zY

The Unsettlers - Oil & Blood
Great stuff with a strong Tom Waits vibe (but not on all of the songs.) There is something like 8 people in this band. There are some interesting instruments like accordion, clarinet and violin. The two male singers have awesome low voices, one sounds almost just like Tom Waits and the other guy sounds just a bit like Scott Kelly from Neurosis, but sings in a different sort of way. There are two female singers. This double album is very diverse and full of killer (although often weird) songs.

This.

Also, Scars on Broadway - s/t
Just rediscovered this fucker today! I hadn't listened to it for at least a couple of years, and boy did it work great in the car with the windows down on a 70 degree day! Anyway, say what you want about SOAD, but this is quite different. This little gem is full of fun, fun, fun rockers. Every single song is catchy as fuck! I never thought I would say this, but Malakian's voice is not completely reprehensible on this one, as opposed to the occasional vocals he did in the SOAD albums.

I've been listening to Alan Lomax's Prison Songs album alot the past couple weeks, when I am sleeping usually, and it is some pretty powerful stuff. I've read up on it a little, and its recordings are of inmates from a penitentiary that were doing contract labor for the state of Mississippi during the late 1940s. Some of the songs are of comprised of entire chaingangs, while others are just of a single singer. Some of the best delta blues/slave spirituals I've ever heard.

Its more than one album for sure, but the one that came to mind immediately when I read the thread's title is Mono's "Hymns to the Immortal Wind".

I don't know which is more impressive: the album or the fact that Mono is able to play it live.

I can't believe I ignored this thread for so long! Some Tenners that come to mind right now:

Miles Davis-Kind of Blue: This is a rare album that I can listen to regardless of what mood I'm in. If I'm angry, happy, sad, etc, it just fits regardless. The performances are all flawless and it's interesting to note Coltrane's restrained performance on this. Miles was one of the greatest composers of the 20th century, he innovated several styles and genres and always seemed to go into quiet periods of a few years and then return in even stronger form, not to mention the dozens of great musicians he tutored.

King Crimson-In the Court of the Crimson King: I adore this album and give it a 10, despite my ambiguity for Moonchild. I quite like the beginning of the song but the end with all that quiet doodling gets a bit tiresome, but it works because you're just listening to this quiet bit and out of nowhere comes the thundering title track. Epitaph brings me to tears and 21st Century Schizoid Man is one of the heaviest songs ever recorded. Love the bridge

Pink Floyd-The Wall: I discovered Floyd when I was 17 or 18 and this album always hit me emotionally since I wasn't in the happiest of places back then. While there aren't many musical highlights, they all blend in and form a strong whole. I love the story of the album, the movie was a trip (first DVD I ever bought! I still have it!) and damned if Comfortably Numb isn't the greatest guitar solo of all time.

Dead Can Dance-Into the Labyrinth: I got this roughly the same time I was getting into Floyd, I remember I was searching for something "different" sounding that would still hit me emotionally and not sound hollow musically. I think I picked this up on a whim in a used CD store after seeing a few people recommend them on some Metal mailing lists (remember those? :P) I was subscribed to. This album just took me to new places of musical contemplation. Perry and Gerrard remain two of my favorite singers to this day and it's hard for me not to get teary to The Wind that Shakes the Barley or How Fortunate the Man With None.

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds-The Boatman's Call: I'd always enjoyed Nick Cave's more sentimental or introspective moments, and this album is chock full of it, coming after his break with PJ Harvey. The album's very stripped down yet still remains complex and raw. And this album's gained more relevance for me in the past couple of years since my ex-wife decided to end our marriage.

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds-Murder Ballads: An album that showcases Cave's versatility, an album that veers from melancholic to darkly comic. This is a perfect album to play aloud to make people uncomfortable


That's all I can think of for now, I'll add some more later

Mac Miller - Macadelic.
I'm probably going to get some shit for this, but I'd definitely give the new Mac Miller mixtape Macadelic in the 97-100 range. I didn't really like his previous release "Blue Side Park." It seemed kind of silly and the songs weren't really memorable. I think the needledrop hipster summed up the lyrics on that album the best "oh no, were stoned on a play structure and the cops are here!" This new album seems a lot more mature. His lyrics are a lot better and less silly, and the beat selection is amazing. ID Labs produce some great beats, and Clams Casino, one of my favourite up and coming producers makes an appearance. The beat to "Desperado" is one of the best I've heard and I love that little "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" sample at the end. The whole album has a hazy laid back vibe bordering on psychedelia. I don't generally equate rap albums with having atmosphere, but this would definitely be one of the exceptions. I know people will roll their eyes because its Mac Miller and people associate him with lame clubby rap, but he has really come into his own with this release.

Worm Ouroboros - Come the Thaw
Alright not sure if I'd give it a perfect score, but definitely up their in the upper 90s. This not an album to put on when you want something aggressive or some killer riffs. This one is all about the atmosphere. This band is often associated with the metal scene because of its members, but really it seems closer to something like Amber Asylum. The reasons so many metalheads know about this band is because it features Aesop Dekker from Agalloch/Ludicra and I think Jessica played in The Gault. The previous album was decent, had quite a nice atmosphere, but sometimes it seemed to be a bit unfocused and the songs went on for just a bit too long. This problem does not reemerge in the sophomore. The songs have a very serene aquatic vibe, and feel vaguely jazzy at times.

I love outlaw country - so Waylon Jennings, David Allan Coe, Cash, Willie, Paycheck, Kristofferson - their early works were especially amazing.

The Akira original soundtrack is really weighing heavily on me, I haven't stopped playing it since I bought it off of Amazon. Some of the arrangements are very multi-layered, lots of different instruments and ethnic/religious depth added such as Buddhist chanting to oriental instruments really make the album memorable and possibly one of the best soundtracks I've heard.

Sarah Mclachlan - Afterglow. Calm album that helps me get through stressful times.The vocals on this woman is something else.

Any hip hop heads 'round here?
M.O.P - Warriorz. Marsh Out Posse at their best, an album they'll never top.

Self Scientific - The Self Science. The dynamic duo of Chace Infinite & Dj Khalil, a true underground hip hop classic. As Chace aptly puts it : ''Khalil's cuts, cold as black steel, cause chaos in the hour of diskjockey-off''.

Gangstarr - The Ownerz. An album i always hold dear, Guru and Premo's final work together. Absolute Legends.
I'll be back later.

Pretty much anything from Stevie Ray Vaughn. He was one of the best guitarists out there, the good always end up dying.

Most of Zep's stuff because hey, they are fucking amazing.

Mark Lanegan-Bubblegum: Outstanding album by the guy that sang with Screaming Trees, QOTSA, and on a bunch of side projects. As far as genre it's all over the place, some of it is pretty mellow, and there's some really dark lyrics that pretty much all come back to Mark Lanegan being a hope-to-die dope fiend. Good talent from the Palm Desert stoner rock scene cover the instrumentals.

QOTSA-Songs for the Deaf: Probably the last thing QOTSA did that had any stoner left in it and one of the best pieces of music that I've ever heard. I don't know how many times I've listened to this beginning to end but it's in the hundreds.

Kyuss-Welcome to Sky Valley: The all time masters of stoner rock at their best. Every song is great. Asteroid is IMO one of the top 5 instrumentals of all time.

Ministry-Psalm 69: I don't know a lot about industrial but I know I love this album even if the singer is kind of a knob. I listened to it when it was new and I listen to it now. There's some real aggression behind those tracks and as far as that kind of music goes that album is perfect for what it is.

The Lucky Devils-Black With Flames: Psychobilly without any of the horror shtick, kind of like hard rockabilly. I turn it up and it makes me feel better if I listen to it when I'm having a shitty day. No thinking required, just real solid rock n roll.

The Moody Blues-Days of Future Passed: I blame my mom for this since she listened to a lot of the Moody Blues when I was a little kid. Real mellow hippie symphony music but really good on the headphones if I'm in a mellow mood. Good album from beginning to end.

Songs For The Deaf has great songs, but they are best heard live. The album is really compressed.

I still gotta hear Lanegan's solo, duo material.

You're right, QOTSA is best live. For the Mark Lanegan Band Bubblegum is better than his new one.

-Boards of Canada Music has the Right to Children
*Really just one of the most interesting takes on the trip-hop genre I've ever heard. Mixing analog fuzzy, ambient synths and legit hip-hop beats into one of the most serene yet upbeat masterpieces ever made.
-Geogaddi
*BOC continue their Analog friendly trip-hop style going here with added influence from 70s styled BBC national geographics. Such a beautiful album.
-Twoism
*BOC get a bit weird, a lot more dissonant psychedelia influences on this one. Youtube the video for the title track set to Watership Down :S

-Interpol Turn on the Bright Lights
*One of the greatest post-punk records released ever, let alone this decade. It's about as gloomy as any doom album can be but in a much lighter, rawer sense almost.

-Aphex Twin Selected Ambient Works vol 1 & 2
*Well the first disc is almost like a Klaus Schulze meets Daft Punk affair, but that makes it great as tracks like Xtal, Green Calx and Tha are as great in a upbeat setting as they are chilled out. Disc 2 is very much in the regular, drony ambient style and it is an interesting record in itself as well, having tracks that could be considered beautiful and melancholic, to near-Lustmord like darkness.
-Come To Daddy Taking influence from extreme metal on the title track, as well as mixing together some of his ambient work and drum n bass influences on a few others, made this one of the most perfectly well rounded electronic albums I've ever heard. It's got robotic grit, technological atmosphere and static production yet it's so human in every way.

-French Teen Idol El Siete es la luz
*Some of the most beautiful Ambient/Post-Rock I've ever heard. Really just majestic in every way.

-John Stanford Deep Space
*If there was an ambient album I could perfectly describe as enducing a feeling akin to floating through space, it's this one. Blissfull.

-Klaus Schulze X
*The German ambient master himself. Not only is this record epic and chilled, it features songs based around interesting characters, giving the album a somewhat sympathetic connection, something a lot of ambient albums don't have.

-Coven Witchcraft Destroys Minds and Reaps Souls
*The epitome of Occult Rock, I really wish Coven could have released more material then they did. Some of the most creepy yet psychedelic and totally 60s sounding psyche rock you'll ever hear.

-David Bowie Space Oddity
*What can I say? Sort of Dylan-y at first but way, way more entertaining. The title track is still one of the greatest, most melcholicly beautiful and atmospheric songs in rock history and tracks like God Knows I'm God and Letters to Hermoine really show the greatness this man would go onto achieve.
-Hunky Dory
Life on Mars, Quicksand, Ch-ch-ch-changes! Need I say more?
-Alladinsane
*Really the peak of his glam rock period, the inclusion of the saxophone in some tracks really give it a huge sound and make it just grand.
-Low
*Just the epitome of Bowie and Kraut Rock weirdness. The songs that fit the more rock orientated side are fantastic, and there's even some ambient tracks such as subteraneans, showing Bowie would embrace all new aspects of music as he found them. My favourite Bowie album.
-Outside
*Bowie does NIN style Industrial!? Bitchin!

-Godspeed You! Black Emperor F#A# Infinity
*You know you have a great album when it tells a tail with very little to no lyrics whatsoever. GSY!BE will always be the masters of post-rock in my eyes

-Gorillaz Gorillaz
*Just such a refreshing take on the Hip-Hop genre, adding post-punk and electronica influences into a essential UK style of hip-hop to make an incredibly catchy, upbeat yet somehow dark record.
-Demon Days
*Continuing the similar style of the previous disc, but refining it ever so slightly to be even more powerful then the last. Totally deserved all the attention it got that year.
-Plastic Beach
*I didn't like this record at first, but it eventually grew on me. Dropping a lot of the rock elements and becoming more focused on the synths, Damon Alburn manages to recreatre the 80s Hip-Hop vibe of rappers like Grandmaster Flash and Afrika Bambata perfectly. At first it seems very poppy, and there is some of that, but it's another genius record from the Gorillaz if you look pas it.
-The Fall
*Gorillaz do almost BOC styled trip-hop, but threw in some interesting instruments as well such as ukelees and pipes. Just absolutely breath taking, easily my favourite record from them. Trip-Hop, Hip-Hop and ambient fans a like will dig this

-Junius The Martyrdom of a Catastrophist
*TBH to this day I still really can't quite put my finger on what genre Junius are. There's a lot of Post-rock elements, but it has a lot of focus on the vocalist and definitely follows regular songs structuring. There's a lot of heavy, almost post-metal riffs, but they definitely aren't a metal band. I though shoegaze, but it was way too clean and refined to be anything like My Bloody Valentine. I'm somewhat able to draw connections to the later work of Anathema and Katatnonia but I guess in the end they are just one of the pieces that influence this great band. Atmospheric, beautiful, almost kind of proggy too depressive rock(I guess?) at it's best.

-The Killers Hot Fuzz
*Although they fell from grace pretty quick, the debut release from The Killers was awesome. Joy Division like post-punk melodies, New Wave esque synths and just enough rock n roll riffing and solos to make it interesting and respectable. Smile Like you mean it is still one of the most beautiful songs ever imo.

-King Crimson In the Court of the Crimson King
*What is there to say about In the Court that hasn't been said? Dark, Brassy, jazzy, head spinning prog rock with a touch of late 60s claustrophobia? HELL YA!
-Lark Tongues in Aspic
*More of the same, great, headspinning, heavy Prog rock from KC!
-Red
*Heavy KC at it's best.

-Matthew Good Band Beautiful Midnight
*The album that brought the band the most sucess, it really is just a great, heartfelt catchy alternative rock record. Load me up and the Future is X-rated still find themselves in my head without warning.
-Underdogs
*More of an acoustic sense of sereness on this one, making it different from other relases.
-Avalanche
*Technically Matthew Good's first solo album, taking more from the Underdogs style of soulful, acoustic alt rock, but with plenty of almost ballsy alt rock riffing strewn though the record. Weapon is still such a beautiful song.

-Nine Inch Nails The Downward Spiral
*Calustrophobic, robotic and anxious, this is the epitome of Industrial rock. When you're not being bombared by metal-equal, heaviness from the industrial synths and guitars the echoing, dark peacefullness takes a nice contrast to even the record out.
-Ghost I-V

Only album I can stand by this band. I hate the rest passionately. I saw them live a couple of weeks ago because a friend really likes them and it was fucking painful. Oddly, I think Hail to the Thief is considered one of their poorest efforts, am I right?

Dunno about that. I remember it being pretty well reviewed as most casual fans didn't really take to Kid A/Amnesiac that well. I like it, but still consider The Bends and Ok Computer near perfect.

I wouldn't give a 100%, but I'd damn sure give a high rating for Evan Brewer's Alone.

The entire album is all bass guitar, and he has a very good way of setting atmosphere and specific melody. Great album overall, if you like jazz, progressive elements, or just atmospheric instrumental music, you should check it out.

Well I like their other stuff as well, but other then How To Disappear Completely(which is one hell of a depressing, soul sucking masterpiece), none of their songs do anything much for me past the first few listens. I don't think most Radiohead fans disliked it, but it doesn't seem to be a fan favourite by any means. But it does seem to be the Radiohead album for non-Radiohead fans as everyone I know who likes it such as my brother in-law and a few friends also don't care for most of Radiohead's other stuff.

The Sound - Jeopardy

An over looked gem. If you like Joy Division and (early) The Cure you may like this.

Fables From A Mayfly: What I Tell You Three Times Is True - Fair To Midland

Absolutely brilliant album, from start to finish. This is easily one of my favorite albums ever, that is saying something.

:beer:
"Richard D. James Album" is easily in my Top 10. Really wish he would release some new material.

Jethro Tull - Aqualung is excellent, the only non-metal album I have on the 120GB mp3 portable player. The Folkish progressive vibe, the feeling of despair, the Oliver Twist-ish decay. The lyrics are great too.

Also, anything by Johny Cash.

-Boards of Canada Music has the Right to Children
*Really just one of the most interesting takes on the trip-hop genre I've ever heard. Mixing analog fuzzy, ambient synths and legit hip-hop beats into one of the most serene yet upbeat masterpieces ever made.
-Geogaddi
*BOC continue their Analog friendly trip-hop style going here with added influence from 70s styled BBC national geographics. Such a beautiful album.
-Twoism
*BOC get a bit weird, a lot more dissonant psychedelia influences on this one. Youtube the video for the title track set to Watership Down :S

-Interpol Turn on the Bright Lights
*One of the greatest post-punk records released ever, let alone this decade. It's about as gloomy as any doom album can be but in a much lighter, rawer sense almost.

-Aphex Twin Selected Ambient Works vol 1 & 2

It's got robotic grit, technological atmosphere and static production yet it's so human in every way.

-French Teen Idol El Siete es la luz
*Some of the most beautiful Ambient/Post-Rock I've ever heard. Really just majestic in every way.

-John Stanford Deep Space
*If there was an ambient album I could perfectly describe as enducing a feeling akin to floating through space, it's this one. Blissfull.

-Klaus Schulze X
*The German ambient master himself. Not only is this record epic and chilled, it features songs based around interesting characters, giving the album a somewhat sympathetic connection, something a lot of ambient albums don't have.

-Coven Witchcraft Destroys Minds and Reaps Souls
*The epitome of Occult Rock, I really wish Coven could have released more material then they did. Some of the most creepy yet psychedelic and totally 60s sounding psyche rock you'll ever hear.

-David Bowie Space Oddity
*What can I say? Sort of Dylan-y at first but way, way more entertaining. The title track is still one of the greatest, most melcholicly beautiful and atmospheric songs in rock history and tracks like God Knows I'm God and Letters to Hermoine really show the greatness this man would go onto achieve.
-Hunky Dory
Life on Mars, Quicksand, Ch-ch-ch-changes! Need I say more?
-Alladinsane
*Really the peak of his glam rock period, the inclusion of the saxophone in some tracks really give it a huge sound and make it just grand.
-Low
*Just the epitome of Bowie and Kraut Rock weirdness. The songs that fit the more rock orientated side are fantastic, and there's even some ambient tracks such as subteraneans, showing Bowie would embrace all new aspects of music as he found them. My favourite Bowie album.
-Outside
*Bowie does NIN style Industrial!? Bitchin!

-Godspeed You! Black Emperor F#A# Infinity
*You know you have a great album when it tells a tail with very little to no lyrics whatsoever. GSY!BE will always be the masters of post-rock in my eyes

-Gorillaz Gorillaz
*Just such a refreshing take on the Hip-Hop genre, adding post-punk and electronica influences into a essential UK style of hip-hop to make an incredibly catchy, upbeat yet somehow dark record.
-Demon Days
*Continuing the similar style of the previous disc, but refining it ever so slightly to be even more powerful then the last. Totally deserved all the attention it got that year.
-Plastic Beach
*I didn't like this record at first, but it eventually grew on me. Dropping a lot of the rock elements and becoming more focused on the synths, Damon Alburn manages to recreatre the 80s Hip-Hop vibe of rappers like Grandmaster Flash and Afrika Bambata perfectly. At first it seems very poppy, and there is some of that, but it's another genius record from the Gorillaz if you look pas it.
-The Fall
*Gorillaz do almost BOC styled trip-hop, but threw in some interesting instruments as well such as ukelees and pipes. Just absolutely breath taking, easily my favourite record from them. Trip-Hop, Hip-Hop and ambient fans a like will dig this

-Junius The Martyrdom of a Catastrophist
*TBH to this day I still really can't quite put my finger on what genre Junius are. There's a lot of Post-rock elements, but it has a lot of focus on the vocalist and definitely follows regular songs structuring. There's a lot of heavy, almost post-metal riffs, but they definitely aren't a metal band. I though shoegaze, but it was way too clean and refined to be anything like My Bloody Valentine. I'm somewhat able to draw connections to the later work of Anathema and Katatnonia but I guess in the end they are just one of the pieces that influence this great band. Atmospheric, beautiful, almost kind of proggy too depressive rock(I guess?) at it's best.

-The Killers Hot Fuzz
*Although they fell from grace pretty quick, the debut release from The Killers was awesome. Joy Division like post-punk melodies, New Wave esque synths and just enough rock n roll riffing and solos to make it interesting and respectable. Smile Like you mean it is still one of the most beautiful songs ever imo.

-King Crimson In the Court of the Crimson King
*What is there to say about In the Court that hasn't been said? Dark, Brassy, jazzy, head spinning prog rock with a touch of late 60s claustrophobia? HELL YA!
-Lark Tongues in Aspic
*More of the same, great, headspinning, heavy Prog rock from KC!
-Red
*Heavy KC at it's best.

-Matthew Good Band Beautiful Midnight
*The album that brought the band the most sucess, it really is just a great, heartfelt catchy alternative rock record. Load me up and the Future is X-rated still find themselves in my head without warning.
-Underdogs
*More of an acoustic sense of sereness on this one, making it different from other relases.
-Avalanche
*Technically Matthew Good's first solo album, taking more from the Underdogs style of soulful, acoustic alt rock, but with plenty of almost ballsy alt rock riffing strewn though the record. Weapon is still such a beautiful song.

-Nine Inch Nails The Downward Spiral
*Calustrophobic, robotic and anxious, this is the epitome of Industrial rock. When you're not being bombared by metal-equal, heaviness from the industrial synths and guitars the echoing, dark peacefullness takes a nice contrast to even the record out.
-Ghost I-V
*Definitely way more in the vein of some of Trents predecessors such as Brian Eno, Coil and Throbbing Gristle, this is a album of brief, rule-less instrumental songs, consisting of piano, acoustic guitar or ukele to just 4 minutes of Merzbow-ish static.

-Queens of the Stone Age Songs for the Deaf
*Not much to say, the epitome of Stoner rock and Alt rock together. Who in this day and age doesn't know at least half the words to No One Knows?
*Rated R
albeit a bit more primordial the SFTD, Rated R was still a great record with catchy riffs, howling choruses and just great writting.

*Radiohead meets industrial-ish electronica. Really just a phenomenally weird album. Think Radiohead if it was assimilated by the Borg.

Crazy. We have remarkable similar taste.I've been playing Boards of Canada on my desk speakers at work for months now. anyway, a few I would nominate:

Death in June - Rose clouds of Holocaust
Joy Division - Closer
Interpol - antics
Scorn - Gyral

Hot Fuss, but whatever, this album rules. It's up there with some of my favorites. Such a well-done album with a cool vibe and fantastic atmosphere. How the hell did this band derail so badly with their other albums? Though I consider "Andy" to be a lame track. Sort of what kills this from being 100% for me.

I have two new albums that I just might give 100 to. The first one is Little Dragon's "Ritual Union." Instrumentally it is electronica, nothing over the top, just laid back melodies, often really catchy. The vocals are what really make it, though. Really sultry female vocals, which work perfectly with the electronic backdrop. Its pretty simple, but also pretty goddamn effective.

The other one is Danger Mouse and Daniele Lupi's "Rome." Danger Mouse is an artist that I really respect. He's done some hip-hop stuff and Gnarls Barkely, which most people know him for. But hes also produced for Black Keys, is working on an album with U2 and this album is spaghetti western themed and hes teamed up with an Italian composer. Some pretty big names make appearances on vocals, such as Nora Jones and Jack White (who's "Two on One" is possibly the highlight of the album. ) The instrumentals are all really interesting and have an authentic feeling. The tracks with vocals are all strong. Amazing album the whole way through.

I second all of the love for Stevie Ray Vaughan's Texas Flood. Fantastic album top-to-bottom. 100% in my (yet to be published) book.
