The National never stuck with me for some reason. i gave them a few tries too. i think mostly, it's the singers voice that just doesn't sit well with me.

I'm the opposite, Matt Berninger could sing just about anything and I would love it. It just took me a while to get into the band because, well, there's nothing outwardly spectacular about their music. It grows on you.

I love Berninger's delivery as well, and cannot get enough of the drummer brother Devendorf. The Geese of Beverly Road? Mistaken for Strangers? Yes, sir.

must just be a matter of preference, lol. i think his voice is pretty awful and it's the only thing really turning me away from them.

It might be interesting to see how people are voting now compared to how they did last year.
That was so much fun!

I don't think my all-time list has really changed, so copying from that thread:

U2 - Achtung Baby
Pink Floyd - Dark Side Of The Moon
The Beatles - Abbey Road
R.E.M. - Automatic For The People
Radiohead - OK Computer
Led Zeppelin - IV
U2 - The Joshua Tree
The Beatles - Revolver
Tori Amos - Little Earthquakes
The Who - Quadrophenia

I had Dark Side at #1 in that thread but really, Achtung is. No fucking contest!

A few outside the Top 10:

Jimi Hendrix Experience - Are You Experienced?
Radiohead - The Bends
The Doors - The Doors
Pearl Jam - No Code/Yield
Metallica - Master Of Puppets
