Get on it. Their earnestness would make early '80s Bono blush, and they damn near blew the roof off of the venue I saw them at. Unexpected and fucking awesome.

Can't wait to explore more of the stuff on these lists when I get back home!

I heard that Big Pink album and kind of dug it. I need to give it a few more listens.

There's way too little attention being paid to Doves on here. That's all I have to say for the moment, I've certainly got some catching up to do, but first, an essay!

...The Blood Bank EP is better than Manners. Hospice, Popular Songs, Junior, etc.?

Apparently it received more votes from their staff members than the others did, or how ever they decide these things. Including EP's in an album list seems a little weird to me, but who am I to judge.

I mean, there were like 4 songs on that EP weren't there? And, imo, only one of them was any good, one was decent, and the rest I've never listened to since I originally got it.

But yeah, an EP never should've been included in an albums list anyways :judges:

Blood Bank is pretty shitty. Not shitty enough to make me grateful for Unmap though.

Somehow I managed to forget Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix and Together Through Life. They're both definitely on my list.

THE FORK!'s Top 10 is out. Pretty predictable. I need to hear the Raekwon album.

That top ten is just...insane. I don't even know how to feel about that one . They're all albums I liked for the most part, but it's the placement I find odd.
