1. The Photo Album - Death Cab for Cutie
    Takes me directly back to freshman year of highschool. Every song is perfect.
  2. Yankee Hotel Foxtrot - Wilco
    Defines a whole year of my life
  3. Through the Deep Dark Valley - The Oh Hellos
    Perfect car music. If I'm feeling good about things, this is what I play.
  4. Pinkerton - Weezer
    The angst. It speaks to me.
  5. Hamilton - Lin Manuel Miranda
    The history component and diverse sounds give it staying power.
  6. Funeral - Arcade Fire
    Wake up is one of the greatest songs of all time. In the back seat makes me cry.
  7. Come on feel the Illanoise! - Sufjan Stevens
    Most interesting sounds on any album I've heard
  8. Carrie and Lowell - Sufjan Stevens
    Heartbreaking. Beautiful.
  9. Good Kid MAAD City -Kendrick Lamar
    My favorite rapper, rap album
  10. Give Up - The Postal Service
    It's in my car at all times and I end up listening to it a couple times a month
