| released = July 2004 | format = CD | recorded = July 2004 | genre = Filk | length = | label = Time Machine Records Fur Folk & Fun is SonicBlu's first studio album of a series of furry related song parodying popular songs.

The only song off the album that gave the largest amount of trial and error was the song "P(ost) C(on) D(epression), which took an alarming 80 takes to get a final copy mixed. The album is dedicated to David Von Foxkin, which the single The Pile Of Furries was written to commemorate his first fur con experience.

This was the first album by SonicBlu that has commemorated its success with a gold record award, which featured the cover of the album's test release before changing to the current cover depicting SonicBlu frozen in a block of ice.

Four on the Floor...And Ready to Roll[edit]

Four on the Floor...And Ready to Roll cover

| caption = The cover for the album Four on the Floor...And Ready to Roll, featuring four skeletons lying on a sandy ground and disclaimer warning label for the album's content, and signed as "Jack the Ripper". | released = 1st print run: January 2007. 2nd print run: May 2007 | format = CD | recorded = October 2006 | genre = Filk | length = | label = Time Machine Records Four on the Floor...And Ready to Roll is SonicBlu Darkfold's fourth studio album featuring filk songs of a furry and general audience parodies. The album was made in a style of horror to reflect on the three-song tribute to Jack the Ripper, which SonicBlu added after his conversation with close friend David Kaffinetti, keyboardist for the group Spinal Tap. This album was part of a contest giveaway, in which participants who bought The Jack the Ripper Trilogy Maxi-Single were eligible to receive a free copy of the first print run of albums on January 1st 2007, four months before it reached the distributor in May of the same year. The album was first released in red-tinted jewel cases to differentiate the first print run copies from the final releases, which were then issued in solid clear jewel cases. This was the first SonicBlu album that featured two of his characters singing their own songs. This was also the first SonicBlu CD that was printed with artwork on two sides of the CD backing cover. The design of the front and back CD covers all had something to do with the number four and "bones". Initially, SonicBlu wanted a Vegas-themed CD cover for the new album, but he settled for something with a more horrific theme. Being the fourth album release by SonicBlu, he wanted everything to have a theme bearing a reference to the number four. There are four skeletons pictured on the front cover, and four paw prints placed in the form of the number four on a typical die in each of the four corners. The use of dice denoting the album's track numbers on the back of the CD case was used to symbolize another type of "bones", and the term "roll the bones" coincides with the "...And Ready To Roll" subtitle depicted on the back cover. The dots on the dice were replaced with small black paw prints, which were put into place one paw pad at a time for all thirteen tracks. The cover for this album was the most complex design SonicBlu ever put together, and the cover was in the design phase for over two weeks. To give a few extra references to the number four, SonicBlu purposely waited four months from the first print run's release to send the album and cover designs to his distributor, which was done on May 4, 2007, thus giving the album an official release date. The fourth track on the CD was intentional for the first single (It's a Fur's Life) to be released from the album. Tracks 11, 12, and 13 were previously released on The Jack the Ripper Trilogy maxi-single. The hidden 69th track featured a grim telling of the legend of Jack the Ripper, with sound effects of clasping thunder and wind chimes encoded backwards in the background to give off an eerie effect, and in the end, left its listeners to question that if Jack the Ripper were reincarnated, would you be brave enough to venture into the same world of terror as Inspector Abberline had done? SonicBlu's readings of the Jack the Ripper letters ended the track, which were also encoded backwards.

Who's Naughty, Who's Nice: The Best of SonicBlu Vol. 1: Mundane's Anonnymous[edit]

Who's Naughty, Who's Nice cover

| caption = The cover for SonicBlu's first greatest hits compilation featuring thumbnails of the album covers of his prior four full length CD releases. | released = April 2008 | format = CD | recorded = 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 | genre = Filk | length = | label = Time Machine Records Who's Naughty, Who's Nice: The Best of SonicBlu Vol. 1: Mundane's Anonnymous is a greatest hits compilation released by SonicBlu Darkfold which catalogs his release of singles from his prior four albums. The title of the album is a parody of The Who's Who's Better, Who's Best compilation, which was a take of their song You Better You Bet, and the misspelling of the word "anonymous" is also featured as a result of a fight SonicBlu had with his computer to try to fix the cover. SonicBlu noticed the word was misspelled before the prints were made, which was a few months after the cover was designed. Four attempts were made to fix the mistake, but all four times he attempted to fix it, the laptop computer he used at the time would constantly shut itself off due to a faulty graphics chip. After the fourth attempt, SonicBlu gave up in trying to fix the spelling mistake, and released the album nonetheless, with the title misspelled as "annonymous".

Each song on this compilation was intended with a general audience in mind, and the album consists of mostly previously released material, except for track 9 which contains an unreleased song that was intended originally for the Incoming! album, but the plans for the forthcoming album's theme was changed and the song no longer fit the theme. The song was moved from SonicBlu's archive of unreleased songs, and is offered to the public on this compilation for the first time. The cover features thumbnails of all four of SonicBlu's prior albums juxtaposed into one square image.

Who's Furry, Who's Flesh: The Best of SonicBlu Vol. 2: Furry Frenzy[edit]

Who's Furry, Who's Flesh #2 cover

| caption = The album cover for SonicBlu's second greatest hits compilation featuring thumbnails of his four prior albums. | released = June 2008 | format = CD | recorded = 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 | genre = Filk | length = | label = Time Machine Records Who's Furry, Who's Flesh: The Best of SonicBlu Vol. 2: Furry Frenzy is SonicBlu Darkfold's second greatest hits compilation released in the same year as his Mundane's Annonymous album, only this volume features SonicBlu's singles with a furry theme. The title of the album is a parody of The Who's Who's Better, Who's Best compilation, which was a take of their song You Better You Bet. The cover features thumbnail images of SonicBlu's four prior albums juxtaposed within a square image, and features a more furry looking effect around the edges of the front cover. Most of the tracks on the album have been previously released. There are two previously unreleased tracks on this album, as opposed to volume 1 which only featured one new song.

Track 5 contains the previously unreleased song Fursuit Boogie (a parody of the song Boot Scootin' Boogie by Brooks & Dunn), which was written in 2005 when Morphicon was still brand new. The song was never released, rather, intended on being performed during the variety show of that year, but due to the loss of his mother that year, SonicBlu decided to hold off on performing the new song, and performed his own rendition of (They Long to Be) Close to You in the style of The Carpenters instead, which was one of his mother's favorite songs of all time. A year later, SonicBlu experienced the loss of his father, to which a tribute to him in the form of the song Green, Green Grass of Home was recorded and aired on his radio show, the Time Machine Show that year.

Track 6 contains the song Ode to Sharky (a parody of Mack the Knife in the style of Bobby Darin), which was recorded in the hotel room during Anthrocon 2006, the same weekend of its intended performance. SonicBlu was torn between having two of his songs performed during the Masquerade that year, since two different people came to him at the same time wanting him to perform songs for their acts. Since the show is limited to one skit per performer, the deciding factor was in Rigel's hands as to which of the two rehearsed acts he liked best, and Welcome to McDonalds won out over Ode to Sharky. To make up for not being able to perform the song live, SonicBlu placed the unreleased song on this compilation and presented a signed CD to Sharky at Anthrocon 2009, one year after the compilation's release.

SonicBlu's tradition of including a hidden selection on track 69 is still featured on this album, and features a spoof commercial SonicBlu recorded during the height of the Time Machine Show's popularity in 2007, in which actual recordings of SonicBlu singing random songs in the shower is presented.

Oh! Pawpets! presents: Bwing's Twansfowmation: The Official Soundtwack[edit]

Oh! Pawpets! presents: Bwing's Twansfowmation: The Official Soundtwack cover

| caption = The cover design for the soundtrack album of the Oh! Pawpets! Show's first musical | released = September 2010 | format = CD | recorded = September 2010 | genre = Filk | length = | label = Time Machine Records Oh! Pawpets! presents: Bwing's Twansfowmation: The Official Soundtwack is the first soundtrack album released under Oh! Pawpets! Pwoductions, and features songs recorded by SonicBlu Darkfold utilizing the voices of the characters from the Oh! Pawpets! Show. The soundtrack's title reflects on the speech impediment spoken by the character Bwing T. Fewwet. The musical was a transitional turning point in Oh! Pawpets! history as the Generation 1 form of Bwing T. Fewwet changed over to the Generation 2 form. The musical itself featured songs that matched the action performed on the stage during the live stream while Bwing was receiving his entire "body makeover". The entire album is a parody of the soundtrack from the film Phantom of the Paradise, thus dubbing the subtitle of the album "Ferret of the Parodies". Copies of the soundtrack ordered through Oh! Pawpets! would be shipped bearing autographs in the penmanship of each individual character that appeared in the episode. Unlike SonicBlu's former albums, this CD contains bonus hidden selections on tracks 67, 68, and 69 which feature some of SonicBlu's previously unreleased songs that have been stored in his archives. The soundtrack was released and made available on the same night as the musical's first airing on the Oh! Pawpets! Show in September 2010.

The traditional 69th hidden track features a commercial spoof of "The Belcher", a parody of the product The Clapper. No singles were released from this album, even though some of the songs were featured as requests during the Time Machine Show. The cover features most of the characters of the Oh! Pawpets! Show gathered around an evergreen tree in the snow, with Bwing T. Fewwet peeking out of the wreath that serves as the title's "O" in Oh!
