The Unwound appreciation thread has got my thinking about Leaves Turn Inside You and how it is one of "those" albums...from start to finish something very special. IMHO a flawless collection of claustrophobic songs, consistent in tone, that build to the twin emotional peaks of Terminus and Below The Salt...the ultimate winter album
Whenever I think of Leaves Turn Inside You I am also drawn to three other similarly themed and similarly brilliant albums, namely:
Spiderland by Slint, I Could Live in Hope by Low, and The White Birch by Codeine.
All of these albums maintain a consistency of tone and quality throughout, that frame a peak, that complements what comes before and after rather than making the others look poor by comparison (Washer by Slint (other would probably say Good Monring Cap'n), Lullaby by Low, Ides by Codeine).
So I guess after that, what albums fit this sort of bill for ya'll?
