MOST INFLUENTIAL ALBUM
GRAN TURISMO | THE CARDIGANS
I discovered this album when I was around 14, it single handedly shaped my taste in music. I obsessed over the crisp female vocals on top of everything from grungy electronic beats to beautifully simple and tasteful instrumentation. All the while leaving room for exceedingly well crafted melodies and lyrics. It was everything to me, and still holds up today.
