    They don't have to be strictly break up albums in the sense that they're depressing or about break ups exclusively, just relevant somehow (maybe the mood, maybe they encourage the "pick yourself up" thing, etc.)


    A couple that came to mind for me ...

    Jackson Browne - For Everyman
    Bob Dylan - Time Out of Mind
    Feist - Let It Die
    Beck - Sea Change
    Wilco - Sky Blue Sky
    Neil Young - Harvest

    After a particularly painful breakup I read once that the worst thing you can do is to find meaning, or try to in song lyrics - but what the h3ll - this.............



    or this............



    .......and you guys thought all they ever did was make noisy songs with non-sensical lyrics.
