Amazing Album Titles

So I was thinking... amazing album titles.

 

Names that fit the music perfectly, are very clever, are an in-joke for fans or just plain original and awesome.

 

Any genre.

GO!

 

 

 

I will start with:-

 

Venetian Snares - printf("shiver in eternal darkness/n");

 

If it had been simply Shiver in Eternal Darkness then it would sum up the music beautifully; dark and cold and menacing, foreboding doom and all that shit. Brilliant. But the fact that Snares wraps it up in a bit of C coding adds a level of geekery which reflects the computational nature of his music. Probably my favourite album title of his.

Darkthrone's oft-cited unholy trilogy:

 

A Blaze in the Northern Sky

Under a Funeral Moon

Transilvanian Hunger

 

I think it's important the musical content lives up to the titles, so with that in mind:

 

Isaac Hayes - Hot Buttered Soul, Black Moses

John Coltrane - A Love Supreme

Pink Floyd - The Piper at the Gates of Dawn

Gold Panda - Half of Where You Live

Jimi Hendrix - Axis Bold As Love

R.E.M. - Murmur (nice disclaimer eh?)

Sonice Youth - Daydream Nation

Fela Kuti - Expensive Shit
Scientist - Scientist Rids the World of the Evil Curse of the Vampires*

 

*Classic dub remix titles take the fucking cake - they would often have ridiculously creative titles completely unrelated to the reggae track they were making a dub version out of, "Flash Gordon Meets Luke Skywalker" is my favorite.

 

Or something like this:

 

 

...i care because you do

 

/thread

 

that is a good one

 

Public Enemy - Fear of a Black Planet

 

hell yeah, It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back is up there too

 

Frank Zappa is a fucking goldmine for this shit.

 

I like how his debut was Freak Out!

 

Butthole Surfers are up there too:

 

Psychic... Powerless... Another Man's Sac

Rembrandt Pussyhorse
Locust Abortion Technician
Hairway to Steven
piouhgd
Independent Worm Saloon
Electriclarryland
Weird Revolution
