Edit - Removed for horrifying predictability and cuntiness.

Double Edit - I know that's never bothered me previously.

This and just about everything else on Heaven or Las Vegas.

Similar vibe to that album, from Blue Bell Knoll: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oE6YAjFucdQ

I think that it's Frou-Frou Foxes in Midsummer Fires. Spine-tingling opening and a real epic quality to the build and chorus.

In the Gold Dust Rush. The music fits so well with the cover art and the album title ('Head Over Heels'). A haunting whirlstorm.

Blue Bell Knoll

My favourite is the title track of that LP, though I found the rest of it a little disappointing in comparison.

I want to change my answer, it's Alice.
