Illinois is pretty unique in his discography, in my opinion. if you really love it, check out Michigan (more mellow/stripped down), and Age of Adz.

Adz is a very unique album. lots of...

if you don't want super stripped down stuff, listen to Illinois. very grandiose and bombastic. it has one or two spiritual themes running through it (as does all of Suf's stuff), but primarily it's...

protip: Illinoise and Age Of Adz are the best two Sufjan releases, yet very different from each other

if you really fuck with his new album, listen to Seven Swans (or just a bunch of Elliott...

i don't think of Husker Du has post-hardcore but they're so good. Zen Arcade is essential

bear v shark is also good

glassjaw is whatever

in my opinion, 13 Songs is the most classic, but The Argument is the best

Fugazi, Refused, and ATDI are the "big three" of post-hardcore in my opinion

but RoC has aged better than TSOPTC, in my opinion

Yeah, Tallahassee is actually probably the best record to start with. It's my personal favorite tMG release

Tallahassee. And then All Hail West Texas.

and then decide if you prefer their hi-fi stuff or the lo-fi vibes, and get back to me!

so this is good, yeah?

(I wouldn't expect otherwise. Everything Darnielle has touched - even The Extra Glenns and early shit like Taboo IV - is great)

Young Fathers are fucking great

Hip hop reviews are the worst thing Fantano does but I agree with and kind of like this one

I don't mind watching Fantano for the points that he presents. I don't take his ratings as gospel, and I think he's a little annoying. But I still watch his stuff from time to time. Definitely not my...
