I need to just friggin' order it from Amazon, can get a new import for only $8 or so from some of the "sellers" now. You're the second person to tell me it's great. How would you compare it to their first two in ranking/style/whatev?

It's closer to the second album in style. It's catchier than either of the first two albums, in my opinion. The first 4 songs on the album, though, are better than the last 8. It suffers a little bit from sameness, I suppose, but that's just their sound.

Fuck, I forgot about the My Morning Jacket album we were blessed with already this year. I have to bust out the ass pepper every time I listen to that one.

It's been a year for the big bands to me.

New albums so far from;
Radiohead (If you consider In Rainbows got it's official retail release on January 1st)
R.E.M.
Nick Cave
Coldplay

Still to come;
Oasis
U2
Kings Of Leon
Killers

Personally, I think the best is still to come. The only albums I've heard out of the list that are out so far are R.E.M. and Radiohead's albums. Both of which I think are brilliant. I haven't gotten around to listening to Nick Cave and I couldn't be arsed with Coldplay.
I'm really looking forward to U2, Kings Of Leon and Killers. If those 3 albums live up to to how good I think they'll be it could well be the best year of the decade in terms of music for me.

If you guys are fans of Gnecco in particular have you checked out The Neverending White Lights? He does guest vocals for several songs...

Snow Patrol have an album coming out this year? (And I wouldn't bash you for being excited about that! Snow Patrol are a great band.)
