My favourite DCFC album is still Something About Airplanes. The Photo Album is second.

Based on the songs I've heard, I'd say that's money well-saved. But I've never liked them so I'm not exactly the best judge.

I didn't buy all that many new records this year but when I think about it, Death Cab and R.E.M. got less love than the others.

Well for what its worth most fans of R.E.M. wouldn't classify Accelerate as a disappointment, but neither album is a huge leap forward for their respective bands.

They both enjoyed a brief burst of enthusiasm in my CD player and then I put them away.

I pop in Accelerate often for driving, so much energy, angry though it maybe, but its nice to get a lot of passion from them again, I hope we get a new album with this renewed energy and some sort of new direction in the near future.

Yeah, I'm not feeling too guilty about the Coldplay thing. I saw them perform on The Daily Show when the album came out, and I wasn't impressed at all. About a month ago, I thought I might finally cave in and buy the record. Then while driving to a meeting, a coworker and I listened to a couple songs on his iPod, and they were just awful. Completely underwhelming.

Most of the albums I've bought this year have been from the trance genre, though some new stuff has come out here at the end of the year that's promising--Ryan Adams, Thievery Corporation, Enigma, People in Planes, Secret Machines. I even picked up the new Bloc Party on a whim after hearing it played at the CD store. It's been a weird year for music in my book.

Perhaps I just fail at music taste, but I really, really like this record. Perhaps even more than Transatlanticism. At the very least, it's more singular, and I Will Possess Your Heart is my favorite song of theirs, so that helps.

I Will Possess Your Heart is stellar, I'll give you that. It's been ages since I've listened to this, I'll try to remember to give it a spin tomorrow.

Forgot to mention the greatness of Bixby, Cath (really, the first four, all in a row, makes for quite an awesome listen), and Grapevine Fires. Can't really get into Talking Bird.

Also, random fact: Wilco's Ashes Of American Flags segues perfectly into I Will Possess Your Heart. I may use that at some point.

I may steal that at some point.

I agree with this. I sort of lose interest in the second half of the record but the first four songs are great. Maybe I'll listen to this tomorrow in the car.

I've said all along that I really enjoy this record, much more than Plans. It's in my Top 20 for the year.

I really like The Ice Is Getting Thinner... I can't explain it really - I hated it up until recently and all of a sudden it clicked...

Same here. A friend included it on a mix that he gave me over Thanksgiving and suddenly I like it.
