Beautiful Albums?

What are some albums you consider to be beautiful or poignant? They don't have to be metal.

I'll start off with some obvious ones

There are alot of beautiful CDs, but Agalloch - The Mantle, is untouchable, honestly when i listen to it, its not just music, it is so much more, and has more feeling and more beauty that any Cd i have ever listened to.

Someone just had to make the obligatory Pink Floyd post. I say this only because they are first band that come to mind for me as well.

Cocteau Twins is easily among my favorite non-metal bands of all time.

and I mean, if you want to talk about "beautiful"? well...


Sidenote: While I've been into Cocteau Twins a long time, I actually never followed up on any of their contemporaries and only heard the term "shoegaze" recently. If any of that is worthy, school me.

THE ALBUM LEAF - good indie stuff, mostly instrumental. features some minor collaboration with the dude from sigur ros. but this band is american. some really good acoustic pieces

ELUVIUM - earlier stuff was noisier, very hard to describe. kind of like a warm, musical fuzz. sometimes with piano tinkering. newer stuff is easy to hear melodies in.

FENNESZ - sometimes very harsh noise type stuff. but "endless summer" and even more so "venice" have cool keyboards with oscillators, guitar pieces, and more

slowdive- souvlaki. less layered than MBV, more spacey though

devin townsend band - terria and ocean machine. terria has some of the most layered and beautiful production ever
