My Favorite Albums of the 2000's: #8

The Notwist: Neon Golden

The first time I heard Consequence off of this album, I was on my way to the gym. I remember parking my car, sitting in the lot, and listening to it at least another 2-3 times over before I even got out. What a beautiful album from beginning to end. This is one of the most complete alt-electronic albums released...ever. And at least give The Notwist props for not even trying to replicate it on their follow-up to it. It's like even they realized that there's nowhere to go but somewhere else after making something like this. Neon Golden is just one of those albums that you know within the first minute that you're going to be sad when it ends.
