Albums where every song is a banger.

Akira Jimbo - Cotton

Cover art: Crude drawing of 2 people in summer clothes

I'm madly in love with this album. It does nothing less than bring me back to the happy childhood I've never had, and in no small part thanks to the outstanding songwriting and the magical vocals by the L.A. Voices.

Bill Wurtz

Cover art: Green umbrella on a black background

Every song from him is a surreal masterpiece that sounds oddly nostalgic and yet isn't because I've never heard anything else like it.

Casiopea - Mint Jams

Cover art: Clearly edited-looking photo of 3 jars with green jam

Donald Fagen - The Nightfly

Cover art: Barack Obama standing in a poorly drawn radio room

Earth, Wind & Fire - I Am

Cover art: Random Ancient Greek building in front of a rainbow sky

Ginger Root - Nisemono

Cover art: Barack Obama on a teal background

The only example I'm aware of where a modern album could legitimately pass off as an '80s city pop record in both its sound and music videos. I'm so proud of Cameron for not being afraid to use historically accurate video equipment.

Grover Washington, Jr. - Winelight

Cover art: Crayon drawing of a saxophone near a poorly cropped photo of a wine glass


Cover art: 2 slightly different monochrome portraits of Barack Obama on a black background

Louis Cole is one of the best drummers and composers I've ever heard, and Genevieve Artadi is one the best singers I've ever heard. This is undoubtedly their strongest work so far.

Leslie Hall - Songs In The Key of Gold

Cover art: Barack Obama lying on the floor surrounded by musical instruments

I'm usually not into outright pop music, but goddamn, Leslie is such a talented singer.

Mariya Takeuchi - Love Songs

Cover art: Monochrome Barack Obama on a white background with the words "Love Songs" written in pink on top

Masayoshi Takanaka - The Rainbow Goblins

Cover art: Crude drawing of a few birds, a river, and a rainbow in the forest


Cover art: Crude drawing of a giant syringe lying in a coffin

MFSB is the only band I know of where I can confidently say that every single song they've ever made is a banger.

Patrice Rushen - Pizzazz

Cover art: Barack Obama on a gray background

Steely Dan - Aja

Cover art: Horrifying crude drawing of a woman blending with a black background

Thundercat - Drunk

Cover art: Barack Obama peeking his head out of water
