Since I Left You
(XL, 2001)

The Avalanches' debut album, Since I Left You, is a party. You could be sitting all alone in your room and if you had a stereo and Since I Left You, you’re party would still be better than any in your zip code (that is, if none of those other parties were broadcasting the album at the same time). Stitched together with, what was it? A billion different samples? The album is just a bombardment of fun the likes of which is incomparable in the world of samples and electronic music as a whole. Everything about Since I Left You is groundbreaking.
