favorite albums as of 2018

Hello, 2018. Today is my one year anniversary of having this WordPress blog, so I’m going to write a post that I’ve been wanting to post since the beginning.

my favorite albums (as of 2018):

Your Favorite Weapon by Brand New

Well, this album is the soundtrack to my high school years. And nothing ever made me lose my innocence more than finding out that Jesse Lacey is a creep. However, this album got me through 4 years of ups and downs, car rides, and mix cds. Every angsty emotion one can feel is expressed in this album. Perfectly pop-punk, and released way to early for me to fully experience, this album is a banger.

Run the Jewels – Run the Jewels

Crazy for You – Best Coast

Another staple in my collection. I discovered this album in middle school, and it just stayed with me since. The lyrics are catchy, the songs are generally upbeat, and really captures California beachiness in an album. This album also introduced me to surf-rock which I later spent years listening to.

Peripheral Vision – Turnover

Floral Green – Title Fight

I listened to this album because an edgy guy dating my friend always wore a hoodie from this band. The moment I listened I was hooked, and I’ve loved it ever since. Definitely my favorite Title Fight record too, although I know lots of people disagree. I always found the lyrics to be captivating, the riffs to be smooth, and Ned’s voice to be perfectly harsh.

Damaged – Black Flag

It would be trite to explain this album. This is what introduced me to hardcore, and punk in general. Henry Rollins is fucking amazing. Pitchfork rated it a 9.2/10. Love, love, love it.

From Under the Cork Tree – Fall Out Boy

It’s my guilty pleasure album.

Days – Real Estate

(What’s The Story) Morning Glory? – Oasis

Almost too big to describe, but god damn this album captures everything I love in 90’s rock. Plus, that Gallagher sibling rivalry is interesting as hell, and almost adds to the beauty of the album, because you suddenly become aware that, Wow, they can’t make another album like this again. 

Under Soil and Dirt – The Story So Far

Third Eye Blind – Third Eye Blind
