hmm... i don't listen to the album anymore so kinda know what you are saying... however, I still enjoy the live and remixed stuff of theirs I have. It's a good album, but not great. The reason I rated it so high is the truly inspired drumming.

...surely there's more to say about this list than critisizing 1 of my choices? what's your top albums?

It's not bad. Some albums (like Illinoise, Picaresque, CYHSY s/t, Everything Ecstatic) I would have rated a littler higher. I would have added a couple in there as well

Antony and the Johnsons- I Am A Bird Now
The Evens- s/t
New Pornographers- Twin Cinema
Deerhoof- The Runners Four
Erin Mckeown- We Will Become Like Birds
The Boy Least Likely To- The Best Party Ever
Bonnie Prince Billy and Matt Sweeney- Superwolf

Mew - and the glass handed kites
Broken Social Scene - Broken Social Scene

Illinoise - I admit I'm in the minority here... I think i 'missed the point' of this somewhat as only really liked 2 songs from the album... fair play to making it, as it's certainly not BAD - I just don't think it's as great as most everyone else does...

Everything Ecstatic - Pause and Rounds are both top 5 of their respective years for me.... Everything Ecstatic I simply didn't like that much... Seen him more than any other band in the last 3 years too (about 7 times I think). Sadly, his live performances have slowly gotten worse and I doubt i'll bother again... last time I saw him 2/3 of the audience had left before he was done (he headlined locally with Explosioins in the Sky)

Various Artists - DFA Holiday Mix 2005 - I thought this was quite boring... big disapointment for me... DFA mix 2 is great of course.

The Juan Maclean - Less Than Human - Another album I expected a lot more from. I'll put on LCD Soundsystem 99% instead of this album.

The American Analog Set - Set Free - DAMN YOU! I forgot to put this on my list!! doh!
