Favourite Matt Album And Reasons Why

Recommended Posts

my first thread, hopefully i didnt mess it up...

 

My favourtie would have to be The Audio of Being.

Even though some of my favourtie songs come from the others, this album just have such a great sound to it from start to finish.

Key songs for me are man of action tripoli and sort of a protest song, but the whole thing is fantasitc!

 

and i dunno how, but i forgot to mention that it is the home of my all time favourite song...TRUFFLE PIGS

Hello!

 

Even though, my favourite song Truffle Pigs is on The Audio of Being, my favourite album is Underdogs - its the kind of album you can chuck on to chill or if you wanna dance around or something and the sound and the lyrics are raw, it was definately the turning point between LOTGA and Beautiful Midnight.

Audio of Being. For the same reasons as Squall.

Audio of Being.

 

It marked an obvious change in not only Matt's life, but his musical direction. It's so bitter, raw, and vengeful and it makes for a great record for unwinding.

 

The guitar tone production on it is phenomenol, so many little things that were there that weren't on any of his other records.

 

It's also the one record of his that I can relate to mostly, and on a personal level, that's what makes it really stand out to me.

 

I do however wish that All Together was included over 'I, the Throw Away'.

Wow, that's a tough question. For me it must be Beautiful Midnight because that's how I got to know MGB and I played it on my stereo countless times. The Audio Of Being is a close second.

I beleive Avalanche is my favourite album because it is soo beautifully put together musically ANNND its on vinyl, which I know has nothing to do with the quality of the album, but it adds a lot of cool factor.

Although they're pretty much all equal to me, and I listen intently to pretty much every second of them, underdogs was the first one I bought, and the one that introduced Matt's music to me. I couldn't sleep without listening to it through earphones first.

After long hard consideration, Avalanche. It's epic, tender, it rocks hard, it's poetic, one of my alltime favourite albums.

Avalanche, hands down. The anticipation I felt for that album after the Weapon music video being released a million years before the album hit the shelves was well rewarded. There's not a single song on Avalanche that I dislike and most of my favourite Matt Good songs are on that album. Songs like While We Where Hunting Rabbits, Near Fantastica, and 21st Century Living.

Either Avalanche or Audio of Being

 

Avalanche has a some of the best songs Matt has ever written.

 

Audio of Being the darkness of the album is great.

For the longest time I would have said Beautiful Midnight, but I've switched to Avalanche because it's stronger start to finish and has better production.

 

What an original thread topic!

Tough one.... Avalanche and Beautiful Midnight are neck and neck for me.

 

I was going to say Beautiful Midnight, but after looking over the songs on Avalanche again... I'm going to have to with Avalanche.

Last of the Ghetto Astronauts - The drums sound great - The native son drum solo is really cool. I like the groove that the bass and the drums do in all the songs. The guitars are more simple than today and the whole album is rocky.

I'd have to say either Underdogs, or Audio of Being.

 

AoB is just so dark, I love all the songs off that album......with the exception of "Rat", I'll just have to listen to that song some more.

 

Underdogs has waaay too many great songs to go unloved. Prime Time Deliverance is probably Matts best song to date.

Avalanche. Such a beautiful album. Near Fantastica, Weapon, Hunting Rabbits, and House of Smoke and Mirrors are all so wholesome.

Audio of Being hands down. Sure, Beautiful Midnight had some great songs, but Audio of Being just had so much more depth to it, it speaks to you, it's just so personal. Also, I couldn't say this without mentioning Avalanche. That album is also incredibly well done, and I appreciate it way more than I did before. One of the songs that I had underrated was Bright End of Nowhere. That song is so touching, and it has really great chorus, and I love the way he ends it with the piano.
