Top 5 Albums That You Need To Listen Too Straight Through

You know what I'm talking about. That album that's just so good that you can't help but lock yourself in a room, turn off the lights, put on some headphones and just listen to it straight through. Maybe light some candles, set the mood, right? There are so many albums that I could listen all the way through, but here are my current top five albums that just never get old, and every song could be a single. 

 

5. Father John Misty: I Love You, Honeybear

I've featured a Father John Misty song before, but he still hasn't gotten old. Every song on the album tells a story, and is delightfully weird and unique. From songs questioning societal norms to songs about love. Josh's voice has a very soothing tone and the whole album has a nice relaxing pace to it. The vivid descriptions and flow of the album make this the first on my list, and maybe even one of my favorite albums ever.

4. Dawn Golden: Still Life

A relatively new album to me, but it has already made my top five. This album is like a psychedelic trip to another world. Soothing vocals, synths, and sounds. Put on this record, light some candles, and take a rest. This is a good album for some alone time and relaxation! 

 

3. Jeff Buckley: Grace

This may be my favorite album ever made. Jeff Buckley has a beautiful voice and his rendition of Hallelujah is definitly one of my top songs. Moody, angsty, but still hopeful. Listen to Lover, You Should've Come Over and you will get a taste of just how excellent Jeff Buckley can really be. It has to say something that I got a quote from this album tattooed on me!

2. Nirvana: In Utero

I was a little hesitant to put this album on the list. Don't get me wrong, I love Nirvana, but I wasn't sure if this album really qualified for a spot on the list. That is until I took a 4 hour car trip and listened to the whole album. And I loved every second of it. This is a great,  classic 90's album to throw on for those long drives. (As good as the album is, take a look at the delux version if you really want to delve into some great Nirvana tracks!)

1. G-Eazy: These Things Happen

I've been trying to include a little bit of every genre in this post. G-Eazy gets my number one spot because this album is my current obsession (much to the chagrin of my passengers while driving). I've listened to this album countless times and it never gets old. Exploring different themes throughout, it is a very diverse album. Yeah, there are a lot of "typical" rap songs but give a listen to Shoot Me Down, Remember You, or Opportunity Cost and you'll see that G also has a softer side that is just irresistible. 

 

And that concludes the list. I hope you found some new music to give a listen, or maybe rediscovered an artist you hadn't heard in a while. I had a hard time narrowing it down to 5 albums, as there are so many albums I could go on about.

What are some of your favorite albums? Feel free to comment below and I'll try to give your recommendations a listen! 

Cheers!
