    So, with the artist thread resurrecting, I felt the need to update my list from the last page in this thread. Totally stole Tony's formatting.

    TL;DR: I'm bored.

    [table="width: 550"] ARTIST TITLE
    Linkin Park "A Thousand Suns"
    Coldplay "Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends"
    Bring Me The Horizon "There Is A Hell, Believe Me I've Seen It, There Is A Heaven, Let's Keep It A Secret"
    Nine Inch Nails "Hesitation Marks"
    Slipknot "Vol. 3 - The Subliminal Verses"
    Nine Inch Nails "The Downward Spiral"
    Arctic Monkeys "Favorite Worst Nightmare"
    Imagine Dragons "Night Visions"

    Kind of boring just listing your favorite albums.
    I would personally find it a lot more interesting if people explained exactly why there favorite records are so special - and why people should listen to them.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    La Dispute - Wildlife

    View attachment 8075

    Genre/Style:
    Post-hardcore, progressive rock, spoken word --> (also includes) blues and folk.
    One of the biggest bands from the "New Wave" of post-hardcore bands.

    Concept:
    In the vision of the band the album is a collection of unpublished "short stories" from a hypothetical author, complete with the author's notes, and sectioned thematically by the use of four monologues. The stories are told in parallel to the author's own ambiguous loss and struggle, and the lyrics are a combination of Dreyer's(lead singer) fictional stories and his interactions in life, including true stories from La Dispute's home town, Grand Rapids.
    The four monologues in question project the loss and the struggle of the artist with the introduction 'a Departure', and the three interludes, 'a Letter', 'a Poem' and 'a Broken Jar'.


    I could go on and on about what each song on the album is about(and how they all connect on a thematic level) but I would probably ruin the experience.
    To me this album reflects, more than any other record I have heard, the deepest and most desperate of human emotions.

    If people are interested digging deeper into the lyrics on the album(which they should, because there's a lot of things to unpack) I would recommend listening to these "conversations" where the lead singer explain the stories behind each song:
    [video=youtube;J-lq6sJbMtU]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J-lq6sJbMtU&list=PLHIh9VivvC0Q-Al_Nwkx4ItRIWMcssdWR[/video]


    "It's there in the stories, or whatever they are.
    You can see it. Anybody could if they could Look.
    I wrote some notes in the margins explaining it. The rest is in between lines or in the fine Print.
    First, the feeling of abandonment,
    then trying to cope.
    Then death and hope and the thing Itself, waiting for me.
    It's all there in the pages ahead of here. It's there waiting for you.
    Or for me.
    I'm not sure.

    The whole story."
