Top 10 Best Alt J Songs

Formed in Leeds, UK, in 2007, Alt-J quickly made a name for themselves in the indie music scene, earning praise for their innovative use of harmony, rhythm, and lyrics. Their songs are akin to a sonic tapestry, woven together with haunting melodies, unconventional chord progressions, and lyrics that are as poetic as they are cryptic.

From the infectious beats of "Breezeblocks" to the ethereal soundscapes of "Taro," Alt-J has a way of crafting songs that simultaneously challenge and captivate listeners. Each track is a journey, taking you through a myriad of musical terrains, often within the same song. Whether it's the juxtaposition of lush instrumentation against stark minimalism, or their ability to conjure vivid imagery with their lyrics, there's always something fascinating to discover within an Alt-J song.
The Top Ten
1 Breezeblocks

I have yet to tire of this song...though I know when the masses discover it, I will be done. Luckily for me, it's taking a minute.

Breezeblocks shouldn't just be the number 1 song on this list...
It should be the number 1 song on any song ever to be created.

Not only the best Alt J song, best song ever! Glad my vote put it number 1 where it deserves to be!

2 Fitzpleasure

Everything about this song is mind-blowing. From the subject matter to the production and beat switches Fitzpleasure is easily alt-J's most genius song.

3 Taro

Taro is amazing. Too good to be put into words. At first I got hooked on the rhythm of the song and I already loved the song. Once I Googled what the lyrics actually meant, the song just had more emotion and depth. Definitely better than the hip hop music nowadays.

It's weird that trying to describe how beautiful this song is is making me kind of emotional- it's just the most perfect song.

One of the most beautiful songs I've ever listened to. Simple as that.

4 Matilda

Easily should be in top 3. My personal favourite of the fantastic album.

5 Tessellate
6 Left Hand Free

This is by far their best song from This is All Yours, it may strive away from their typical sound, but this song is way too damn catchy to go unnoticed. Fantastic chorus, excellent guitar rifts all around, definitely deserves to be in top 10.

First heard this through Captain America: Civil War. Fit perfectly!

Spiderman gets introduced from this song. the person making this list is a loser

7 Hunger of the Pine

It might sounds funny, but I cry each time I hear this songs, the build up, the melody, the instruments... Everything is perfect, definitely one of my favorite songs from alt-j and one of my favorite songs of all time

8 Every Other Freckle

This song is so weird but so amazing. Genius.

9 Something Good
10 The Gospel of John Hurt

This song is so creepy, but at the same time so beautiful. There's nothing like it.

Absolutely Amazing tribute to Aliens!

The Contenders
11 Nara

The people below said it better than me but this is not only my favourite Alt-J song - but also just one of my favourite songs of any genre, why? Because its beautiful, complex and you get lost in it every single time. Probably in my top 10 songs I've ever heard and I'm more of a metal guy.

Stick around after Arrival in Nara because this is where things get epic. At about the three minute mark, this song just explodes into a wall of thick synths, twinkly percussion and eerie vocals that you'll lose yourself to.

12 Warm Foothills

Their best musical, lyrical, poetic and sexy song. Too short, but glad it exists!

13 Dissolve Me
14 In Cold Blood
15 3WW

This is an extremely underrated song that is absolutely beautiful. Though the start may be slow, those who are resilient and patient will be pleasantly treated to a masterpiece.

I love this song so much, it is one of my all-time favourite songs. It's incredibly sensual, powerful, warm and amazing. Joe Newman and Wolf Alice's Ellie Rowsell's vocals in this are perfect!

This album might just be their best work yet...

16 Deadcrush

Best I love the chill affect on most but this one is my favorite
also was on fifa18 cool!

17 Bloodflood
18 Pusher
19 Intro
20 Bloodflood Pt. II
21 Adeline

My friend hears a choir of cats in the background. Once you hear it like that, its difficult to unhear it. Be hey, I still love the song!

22 Ms
23 U&ME
24 Pleader

Dark, scary, wanton, and foreboding...then out of nowhere, epiphany, harmonies that surge upwards, and outwards. The warmth and epic scale is unprecedented. A true Masterpiece!

I told my gf to play this at my funeral, it's so beautiful and powerful.
