Default New Pornographers - "Twin Cinema"

I think this is one of the finest and well constructed albums of all time. Does anybody agree with me?

"Twin Cinema" is by far my favorite album of 2005, and I can't help but listen to it incessantly. I think Carl Newman as a songwriter is impecable, and right now probably unmatched when it comes to writing pop songs… practically every song he writes is a gem. To me, the big difference were the additons of Kathryn Calder and Nora O'Connor on vocals - It really made a difference in their sound on this album.

I saw them live last week and they bored me to tears. Only two or three songs held my interest for more than 10 seconds.
