An Awesome Wave

Alt-J - 2012

In 2012 I described as, "An Awesome Wave British alt/art rock masterpiece. This is the album that Radiohead wish they could still make." That may have been overstating it slightly, but it's a phenomenal album that has held up over a year later. Just the right amount of pretentiousness, art, melody, and emotion. It's a polarizing album that received many bad reviews along with the stellar ones. It did win the Mercury Prize, so I'd say the thumbs up votes win out.
