Best Alternative Albums of All Timebeasthound

I don't understand how these guys aren't on any of these lists...
Their debut album is the best. It has that certain trashy, simplistic appeal and is almost entirely devoted to one single message: don't care. You only have one life, live it. Singer Stefanie Kloß does not really sound like a professional singer here. She hits the right notes and all and her voice perfectly fits, but she just doesn't sound that polished. The lyrics were criticized at the time of its release. Other German language bands popular at that time (Ich+Ich, Wir sind Helden, Juli,...) were noted for their poetic lyrics, but Silbermond didn't aim for that, everything was more simple, but also more honest. I'm sure some parts were improvised in the studio.
On later albums, the sound was more polished, the lyrics focused more on metaphors, and the thematic elements were more specific. They tip toed more and more into pop territory, they were still really good and kept their personality (anti-mainstream artists in the middle of German mainstream), but the surprise success ...more - Martin_Canine
One of the greatest alternative albums of the 2010s! The bonus tracks you can't miss. My personal favourites are Trees and Fake You Out.
Fastest selling debut album in British history, remember?
