Nope. It really grinds my gears.

For me:

1. Funeral
2. Neon Bible
3. The Suburbs

All, however, are superb albums. I'll say this: We Used to Wait and Sprawl II might be the two best songs of 2010.

Nobody has yet opined that "Sprawl II" is just the redheaded stepchild of their best tune, "Haiti," eh? Well now's the time.

I opine.

Haiti is one of their best, I'll go that far. I don't know about the absolute best. I don't have a definitive best. That's in the mix.

Imo, it would've been a huge mistake to play Sprawl II if their goal is to get mainstream acclaim. Nothing screams indie as much as high-pitched female vocals.

Somewhere, Mariah Carey just snorted buttermilk out of her nose.

On that particular song, or just Regine's vocals in general?

I see your point, but we're talking about two different things. I'm referring to indie chick vocals, and I'm pretty sure you all know what I'm talking about.
