The Avalanches - Since I Left You (2000)

Continuing on with my posts of awesome albums you've probably already heard before, this is an amazing sample-based album by The Avalanches. Apparently there are about 3500 samples used in this, but it never sounds messy or disjointed. It's mostly chilled out beats but it does get a bit funky occasionally. If you like RJD2, Blockhead, Pelican City, etc you will love it.

    I remember hearing this when it first came out. Great stuff. Any chance you'll be posting their remix of this, "Since I met you"? I think that was the name of it. I lent it to someone years ago and never saw it again.

    Probably one of my favorite albums of all time. As JesGar said, "Since I Met You" is also quite good.
    I wonder if anybody remembers the incredibly weird video for "Frontier Psychiatrist"?
