As I mentioned before, You Forgot It In People is still my favorite of theirs, but both it and the self-titled album are great. It's difficult to recommend one over the other, they both seem fairly necessary if you want to know what they'll be playing live.

You Forgot It In People is much better IMO, but a band with only two or three albums tends to draw from all of them live. Best to check out both.

They sorta do, but those are the only two that matter for the most part (and have been officially released).

Both albums are required if you're going to get into the band. And don't miss Feel Good Lost, either. Don't rush it since no tracks will make it onto a setlist, but don't miss it.

I'm a huge proponent of the self-titled; it's probably in my top five or ten albums of all-time. You Forgot It In People is pretty fantastic too.

If you pre-ordered the album, check your email. You've got download codes....

Pretty much the same score "they" gave the last album. Good to see they gave it Best New Music as well. Looking forward to listening to it (and the EP) tomorrow at work.

Let me add in Popmatter's review as well:

Broken Social Scene is back and they've stumbled upon their second straight-up masterpiece. Plain and simple.

It's a damn shame how overlooked The New Pornographers' newest album has been in light of the NASH/SOC/LCD trio. It's terrific, as good as any of those.

That said, Forgiveness Rock Record is just...it's a joy. I don't know what else to call it. Listening to it makes me extraordinarily happy, and the best tracks rank with their very best. It's disjointed, as always, but so much fun. I don't have fun listening to the self titled, or a good chunk of You Forgot It In People, for that matter. I'm glad they made this record. It needed to be done.
