Going for Piers Faccini on this one, the description seems interesting enough. I've heard nearly all of the other albums apart from the Owen Pallet album.

EDITIDE: Here's some info about the album as requestide.

Genres: Indie Pop, Baroque Pop, Experimental Music

This album was recorded in 2004 and it is actually by a "Final Fantasy" which is the solo project name that Canadian musician Owen Pallet often releases under. The album has 16 tracks. It is Final Fantasy's first album. Owen Pallett is a composer, violinist, keyboardist, and vocalist from Toronto, Ontario. Pallett has been noted for his live performances, wherein he plays the violin into a loop pedal, a technique also used by musicians such as Andrew Bird, Jeremy Larson, Emily Wells and ZoŽ Keating. The name Final Fantasy, under which Pallett recorded prior to the release of Heartland, was a tribute to the well-known video game series, of which Pallett is a fan.


Cool fact from wikipedia that I never knew:
The Win and Regine referred to in "This Is The Dream of Win & Regine" are Win Butler and Regine Chassagne of Arcade Fire, the band with whom Pallett plays live (and often opens for) and for whom he arranged the orchestral sections on their albums. The title of the song is also a reference to "(This Is) The Dream of Evan and Chan," a song by Dntel and Ben Gibbard that was the seed of the pair's collaboration as The Postal Service.
Get crackin'!

Look... we still have a tie. Someone needs to vote.

I'm ending the poll tonight at 8:00 PM Central Time. If it's still a tie I'm just going to pick one.
