"Thanks and thanks again to Him who offers to the man whom the sorrows of life have assaulted and left naked–offers to him the fig leaf of the Word with which he can cover his wretchedness." -Søren Kierkegaard

Hierarchisizing My Music

Posted in Day-To-Day, Music by matt on Thursday, May 15, 2008

So I’m home, I’m packed, and I’m bored. Unfortunately, each of my four family members has a life outside of this house and obligations to fulfill.

Ridiculous, right?

Anyway this leaves me at home with nothing better to do than organize my iTunes library and perfect the curvature of my toenails with mere fingernail clippers (if you’re not impressed you definitely should be).

And I began to think, ‘What do I really like?’ So I’ve managed to rank my top ten favorite albums.

**A little disclaimer! I’m ranking these by album and not strictly by individual tracks (how does the entire album sound rather than certain songs?)**

That being said,

1. Emery – The Question

2. Radiohead – In Rainbows

3. John Mayer – Continuum

4. Death Cab for Cutie – Plans

5. James Taylor – Greatest Hits: Volume I

6. Les Misérables Highlights – International Cast Recording

7. Coldplay – A Rush of Blood to the Head

8. Coheed & Cambria – In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3

9. Nobuo Uematsu – Final Fantasy VII Advent Children Original Soundtrack

10. Dispatch – Gut the Van

10 1/2. Emile Pandolfi – By Request (can’t leave out Emile)

10 3/4. Loreena Mckennitt – Book of Secrets (Or Loreena)

Apparently I couldn’t keep it at just ten…but there ya have it, proof of my music-addiction and of my boredom.

    i know, but in terms of just being a soundtrack it’s not quite as good unless it’s performed on stage. in other words the soundtrack is awesome because the actual performance is awesome, but it isn’t as good without being performed.

    does that make any sense?

    absolutely…nothing compares to the stage. :)

    alright! i adjusted my list – and not just because you wanted me to! (ya right)

    the truth is i really like the les mis album better than the coheed album, so i switched them.
