Not familiar with this album. Is it because it's a downer?

This Mortal Coil - Blood

Actually, change "rainy" to "thunderstorms" and "day" to "night" and you have the perfect time to listen to this gem.

Geez. As I opened this thread, I was thinking and the first choice that popped in my head was: "anything by Nick Drake".

Seems that we're on the same page, cungar.

And, yes, Daytripper, Nick Drake is a bit of a downer. But it doesn't get much better as downers go...

More down than Portishead?

Regardless....I'm on it. Thanks!

Here's an offbeat choice:

Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me (Soundtrack) -
bluesy, jazzy, weird (of course) with just a hint of menace, I think it's perfect for dark, rainy days. It's also great for late night, solitary driving (which I used to do alot until gasoline became so expensive!).

I have a tendency to play the Underworld album "Dubnobasswithmyheadman" on rainy days.

Anything by Boards of Canada

Most music sounds better during rainy days or at night.

An excellent choice for just about any kind of weather!

I like that line of thinking, but I would go with the Twin Peaks TV Soundtrack, as it is just a much better album.

Me too.

I would have gone with Pink Moon, though.

Rainy day for me = relaxing inside. So I would probably go with Radiohead - The Bends.

Five Leaves would have been my 1st pick, Now & Again by The Grapes Of Wrath is another great rainy day choice, plus it's got the supporting album art...
