    Houndmouth- little neon limelight is my sleeper
    Abbey road, Rumours and dark side of the moon are obvious ones
    I think this about everything by sturgill, but I’m biased there

    Both Houndmouth albums before Katie left are fire but From the Hills Below the City > for me.

    I respect that. I was listening to little neon limelight when I typed that post, so I’m sure that influenced my opinion

    Absolutely

    waiting for the lord to rise
    I look into my daughters eyes
    And realize, ima learn through her
    The messiah, might even return through her
    If ima do it, ima change the world through her

    those are some of my favorite lyrics from any song ever

    this album is an all-time great on its own, but the fact that it's composed entirely of samples with mid-90s tech makes it even cooler

    I like it a lot too but it's not on White Pony or Diamond Eyes level for me.

    I'm glad there's other Deftones fans around here. I've seen them like 8 or 9 times and they've been great all but once in 03

    Got me into rap/hip hop etc. Have no quarrels saying it was one of the most influential albums of that time and helped shape the landscape of the genre(s) going forward.

    Casual listener can enjoy it, yet it's deep enough to dive into. Also opened the world up to writing and talking about mental health, addiction etc through music.

    3. White Pony
    4. Deftones
    5. Koi No Yokan
    6. Ohms

    Adrenaline is still solid, and it’s higher sometimes, but it just doesn’t have the staying power some of those others do.

    Bored is still one of my favorite songs though.

    It's Adrenaline, Around the Fur and White Pony on somewhat equal footing for me, then the rest.

    Ohms blew me away with how good it is I will say.

    Listen buddy, I'm glad we can bond over a great band (one of my top 3 favorites) but this list needs some fixing up

    Tier 1 - You could put these in either order and still be correct, Diamond Eyes is so strong from top to bottom while WP has the two best songs in the tier
    1. Diamond Eyes
    2. White Pony

    Tier 2 - Still very good but has a few skips on it
    3. Around The Fur
    4. Ohms
    5. Adrenaline
    6. Koi No Yokan
    7. Self Titled

    Tier 3 - About half the album you can skip
    8. Saturday Night Wrist


    Bad Tier - I don't listen to this, at all

    The Onion is not far off here actually. I’m not a big metal fan but this album is still great and the peak of the genre IMO.
