I have way more that I stole from my parents, but these are the records that I truly consider mine. Also, can I just point out that vinyl is hella expensive?

    Kim Carnes - Mistaken Identity
    Literally walked four miles to a record store, bought this album for solely for "Bette Davis Eyes," and the track skipped. Now I just have a bad taste in my mouth about the whole thing.

    Tune-Yards - Nikki Nack
    "Water Fountain" and "Rocking Chair" get me hyped, really have to be in the right mood for the rest of the songs. It's a red colored vinyl though, so that's neat.

    The Outfield - Play Deep
    The first album I played on my record player. "Your Love" is the OG bop.
  4. 10.
    Sam Hunt - Montevallo
    The newest addition to my collection. My friends gave me all sorts of crap for buying it. Dude's talented though.

    Judy Collins - Colors of the Day: The Best Of
    Love Judy, and a good collection. Plus it came with a poster that I proudly display in my dorm room.

    Bon Iver - For Emma, Forever Ago
    Such good work from a fellow Wisconsinite. Perfect to put on in winter while you curl up with some cocoa and watch the snow fall.
  7. 7.
    The Shins - Oh Inverted World
    Great, though I honestly just bought it because Pet Sounds was too expensive. You can't not like The Shins.
  8. 6.
    Ryan Adams - Gold
    Side Two is like the most consistently fantastic string of songs in music history. "Stars Go Blue" and "SYLVIA PLATH" both blow me away.
  9. 5.
    Samantha Crain - Kid Face
    Saw her live, and she's just such a powerful performer. Really well written songs. "Churchill" was the highlight for me.
  10. 4.
    Vampire Weekend - Modern Vampires of the City
    This album changed my perception of Vampire Weekend. "Hannah Hunt" defines my idea of modern romance.
  11. 3.
    The Oh Hellos - Dear Wormwood
    The title track is my personal anthem. So good that it actually makes me emotional.
  12. 2.
    Meatloaf - Bat Out Of Hell
    Possibly the greatest rock album of all time. Absolutely flawless. Reminds me of my father, who worships Meatloaf. I still want to be Meatloaf when I grow up.

    Various- Garden State: Music from the Motion Picture
    THE BEST soundtrack ever compiled. I relate to the movie on a highly personal level, and the soundtrack resonates just as much. Honestly, this album was made for vinyl, and I don't care how expensive it was, because it gives me all the feels.
