Everytime I hear Belle and Sebastian I think of the movie High Fidelity

I have known several people who tell me this.
I can't put my finger on it but I like If You're Feeling Sinister a lot more (I honestly may not even like the band if not for that album). I've tried to understand this a bunch of times but always come up nil

Just started getting into B&S. Liking what I'm hearing. I need to pick up Boy With the Arab Strap from the sounds of it though.

Very nice. That's their best, The Boy With The Arab Strap and The Life Pursuit are both pretty great too. I never enjoyed their other records as much.

Am I the only one who prefers Tigermilk to If You're Feeling Sinister? To me at least Tigermilk seems to have the better songs and flows better as a whole. I still think that The Boy With The Arab Strap is their masterpiece.

Listen to the EPs Dog On Wheels, Lazy Line Painter Jane and 3..6..9 Seconds Of Light. Some of their EPs are nearly better than their albums.

I enjoy Tigermilk quite a bit actually, I think the musicianship is better in that record. And you're probably right, I heard they have some awesome EP's. Didn't they have a B-side album?

It's not exactly a b-side album but Push Barman To Open Old Wounds is a collection of all their EPs and singles up to 2005. Well worth getting.

What makes Arab Strap better than Sinister for you, Zer0?
