I usually don't listen to the lyrics of songs, but sometimes I do and discover their profundity. This is especially true with these albums
  1. X - Ed Sheeran
  2. Blurryface - twenty one pilots
    Example Lyric: "Death inspires me like a dog inspires a rabbit." Until really listening to the lyrics, I didn't recognize how profound of a simile this was. It is written so intentionally to convey his fear of death.
  3. St. Vincent- St. Vincent
    Ambiguous but still accessible, wildly original, includes thought-provoking social commentary as well as honest revelations about the relationships in her life.

  4. Chutes too Narrow - the Shins

  5. Hamilton
    I realize this is massively hyped right now but for good reason. "'Burr you disgust me.' 'Oh, so you discussed me?'" "You built me palaces in paragraphs" (I could go on and on about the genius of these songs).

  6. Whispers - Passenger
    Mike Rosenburg may very well be the greatest lyricist of our time, and yet no one knows because the only song that ever became "mainstream" was "Let Her Go" an incredibly modest love song that everyone understandably got over very fast...however, had anyone taken the time to further discover this man's music, they would find, just as I have, that his music is more than just words. He has the ability to articulate themes and feelings that are almost impossible to describe. Some kind of voodoo..

  7. Audiotree Live Session - Shakey Graves
    Dark, rich, intimate southern gothic.
