El-Mel, here are my impressions of '08 so far. The ratings are really the only things that matter, the placement within the list is kind of arbitrary. I expect this to change another 100 times before the end of the year.

1. Evil Urges by My Morning Jacket ****
2. Viva la Vida or Death and All Its Friends by Coldplay **** (I'm in shock, too)
3. Weezer (The Red Album) by Weezer ****
4. Narrow Stairs by Death Cab for Cutie ****
5. Flight of the Conchords by Flight of the Conchords ****
6. Hercules and Love Affair by Hercules and Love Affair ****
7. Saturdays = Youth by M83 ****
8. Hold on Now Youngster... by Los Campesinos! ****
9. Consolers of the Lonely by The Raconteurs ****
10. Með suð � eyrum við spilum endalaust by Sigur Rós ***1/2
11. LP3 by Ratatat ***1/2
12. Rising Down by The Roots ***1/2
13. Fleet Foxes by Fleet Foxes ***1/2
14. Accelerate by R.E.M. ***1/2
15. Modern Guilt by Beck ***1/2
16. The Odd Couple by Gnarls Barkley ***1/2
17. Third by Portishead ***1/2
18. Vampire Weekend by Vampire Weekend ***
19. Made in the Dark by Hot Chip ***
20. Stainless Style by Neon Neon ***
21. This Will Destroy You by This Will Destroy You ***
22. Last Night by Moby **1/2
23. Volume One by She & Him **1/2

Still need to give the British Sea Power and Daniel Lanois albums a listen.

Man, the highest you gave anything is a 4/5? This has been a slow year. Glad to see you dug Hercules And Love Affair.

Like with movies, 4/5 is still pretty good for me. It means I'll at least revisit that album or most of its songs pretty regularly and see it keeping up with me overtime. To crack the 9, 10 range, it's gotta really take me on the first, second, and maybe third listens. Last year had plenty of albums that did that for me, not so much this year.

Hercules was a fun album, thanks for the rec. Los Campesinos are quirky as hell, too, but they've got a cool energy about them that you won't see in a band like Vampire Weekend, for instance.

Yeah, last year had In Rainbows and GaGa, both of which blew my mind. This year, the biggest surprise is the superb Fleet Foxes record.

Sky Blue Sky, Sound of Silver, Graduation, All of a Sudden I Miss Everyone, and Neon Motherfuckin' Bible had the same effect on me, too, along with the two you mentioned.

Neon and Rainbows especially were incredibly special to me.

I love obscure music, especially when it's one of those niches that hardly anybody knows about. Like Lookout! Records stuff. I'm a collector. I hope to have everything they put out one day. I have a copy of the first album they ever released. Lookout! Records # 0001, The Lookouts!...fuck me, I've forgotten ... (not the actual LP name. I can't believe I can't remember). Lookout! records was founded by the founding member of The Lookouts! (get it?) Lawrence Livermore, even less experienced on the guitar than Bono, and sings about as well as...uhm I think even Adam Clayton sings better than Lawrence, tbh. But I have everything The Lookouts! ever released.

I should apply this encyclopaedic knowledge* to something useful.

*Knowledge: Originally written and performed by the founding members of Operation Ivy and recorded on their debut LP. Was covered by Sweet Children (later Green Day) on their 39/Smooth album and has since become a live staple in which the band invites audience members to play while the band sings. Usually results in Tre kicking bad drummers out from behind his drums.

I really should use my powers for good instead of evil.
I'll send Writing On The Wall by Riot 111 to you. They got really pissed when TVNZ refused to broadcast their music video (because the sound quality of the song is shit!) and played an impromptu protest gig outside TVNZ's headquarters. Just for that, I consider them legends of Kiwi music. Plus, any song with the line "you're all waiting for 1984 but we all know it's already here" is a winner in my books, no matter how much it sounds like it was recorded in somebody's bathroom by a severely hungover bunch of anarcho-punks.

And , you're talking to the guy who can tell you the precise date and location of every Hawkmoon 269 performance. I, uh, think that says it all.

Personally, I don't consider myself a collector too much. Vinyl's of no use to me, though I love my copies of the One Tree Hill single. I'm more a fan who just wants to hear the music any way possible, i.e. by downloading MP3s. So many of these acts have split up and the musicians disappeared that I don't feel too bad that I simply can't find this stuff to buy at a reasonable price. Hell, I actually once got contacted by the drummer from This Will Kill That and he sent me the band's EP because he just loves that somebody out there cares to hear the music all these years later. He doesn't want money for it, and even if he did, he's lost contact with the lead singer, whose last known location was somewhere in Japan with a J-Rock band ...

Will do that. I was just going to attach it to an e-mail, but that works.

Traiuxx, I haven't picked up the Fleet Foxes album yet, but after listening to some of it online I think I will now. Have you heard the Sun Giant EP too? That worth it as well?
