Efterklang - Performing Parades (2009)
Ok, so imagine the biggest sound you can imagine. Now make it bigger. Now add more horns. You might be about half-way to what Efterklang is like. When you take a few brilliant danish vocalists, add in a full band, back it all with some ambient electronics, and make it all sound like the most awe-inspiring moment of every adventure movie you've ever seen, you get this album. It's a live album played with the help of the Danish National Chamber Orchestra. This album is honestly so beautiful that I have problems doing other things while listening to it.
