Doubt you'll be able to finish it, but you're welcome to try. That album was made for you.

I'm starting it now, but no it doesn't look like I'll have enough time to finish it.


I really like Moon Safari a lot. Though I'm not sure I like it enough to listen to more by Air...we'll see. But I need to go post about this in the Air thread.

Well hello new contender for album of the year. Probably going to end up in third, but it's definitely a close one.

An album that I often recommend to people is Now and Again (1989) by The Grapes of Wrath.


"The Grapes" were a Canadian band of folk-rockers. They started as school friends in small city BC, and later made it to Vancouver and had a few albums. Now and Again is certainly the best of them. It was recorded in Woodstock, NY, and produced a few radio hits in Canada, most famously "All The Things I Wasn't".

The sound of this album is somewhat in the vein of The Byrds or Beatles circa 1965-66. It has a very innocent, youthful sound, but with quite serious songs. It's basically a "break-up album" lyrically. What's most impressive is the quality of the songwriting.

"All The Things I Wasn't":
"Do You Want to Tell Me":

You're boring! Talkie Walkie is better imo.

It's a great album and obviously had a massive amount of influence on the genre (and if you don't realize that, you're young), but I doubt there are many Air fans out there who'd consider it their best album at this point. Electronica notoriously doesn't age well.

"In a Silent Way" is such a misnomer of an album title, for the first half at the very least.

It's the most blatant case of false advertising since my suit against the Neverending Story.

Panther, unfortuately I was checking Spotify and that particular album isn't available on there. Do you have another recommendation for me? Or another Grapes of Wrath album?
