Two Weeks might be my favorite song of the year, along with Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Hysteric, Passion Pit - The Reeling, and something from NLOTH...either Breathe or Moment Of Surrender.

I wasn't blown away by Two Weeks when I first heard it, but now it's one of my favourite songs of the year.

I do kind of like Fine For Now a bit more, though.

Cheerleader has grown on me exponentially. That's probably my second favorite, behind Two Weeks now.

"While You Wait for the Others" is probably my second favorite after "Two Weeks," then "Foreground."

There's not a bad song on this album, so why are we arguing?

Yeah, it's my #1. But that doesn't necessarily mean it's better than Yellow House.

True.

Maybe. I'm heavily attached to both albums and would probably rank them essentially equally myself.

maybe i'll listen to it repeatedly until it sinks in.

i'm really with you on the night time feel... i was driving around to it last night, it was great. not so great was the massive four car pile up i saw, but yeah.

It might help, though I started listening to it over and over from the first time I heard it, so for me, it was immediate. I say keep listening to it; it's a fucking genius song.

Ha, that's funny because I don't really think of it as a nighttime album nearly as much as Yellow House. I can see how the middle of Veckatimest could resonate more during the night, but somehow I still get more of a daytime vibe from it overall.
