How about Daphnis and Chloe. Personally though, I’ve always gotten a 19th century/20th century absurdist/modernist feel while coming to terms with something Dionysian/traditional. That’s just my own weird “feel” though. If you can sense/understand that feeling, I might recommend something like Le Comte de Monte Cristo, or Dracula. Both of which philosophically and aesthetically seem to me at least to deal with the human condition as it exists.

Zoomer shit? That album art looks pretty surrealistic. Didn't think Zoomers would be into that. But, the music can be completely different from the way the album looks. Maybe, just like a book, you shouldn't judge an album by its cover art.
Anyway. I'll do another one, one that really can't be classified as Zoomer shit, I believe, and that people here will enjoy.

Brian Eno - Thursday Afternoon

>>20373505
Probably any high fantasy novel (high, in the sense of epic; epic in the sense of heroic).

>>20378037
Stanislaw Lem - Cyberiad
>>
>>20380662
Actually, I know it's the wrong way around, but I think the perfect fit between Cyberiad and a particular album would be Jean-Michel Jarre, Zoolook.
