I swear I'd never heard one peep about Alcest, and I browse oodles of music magazines and online music blogs.

Thanks to NSW and anitram, I know have heard of them, and have my hot little hands on a downloaded copy to check it out (thanks, Google blog search!).

I'm now insanely curious about it.

Souvenirs d'un Autre Monde seemed to be more like an EP (in terms of length and focus). It was an interesting concept, nonetheless.

I would like to join LemonMelon and u2popmofo in recommending Lupe Fiasco's The Cool.

Good lists, folks.

Well, dang. That Alcest record did nothing for me. I kind of liked the first track, but as a whole, it's not my thing.

Oh well.

Yeah, it's not exactly a well-known album. I only came across Alcest in a passing reference while reading something about Jesu.

Probably not everyone's cup of tea (including yours, it seems ), but I think it's brilliant.

Yeah, same here. To me it seems that most people who liked Sigur Ros (especially the early stuff) liked this album as well. But it's definitely a niche record.

I like Sigur Ros and that kind of atmospheric stuff. But not when it's accompanied by loud(er) guitars. I like guitars in my rock, and minimal guitars in my atmospheric stuff.

Okay, the main page feature of mine and Andy's top lists now includes the B&C list

Great picks, everyone. I've definitely got some new music to check out (as if I needed anymore)...

Nice list!

I really don't get The White Stripes, not live and not in CD format, but clearly it's a me-thing.

I just got the Alcest album, it's pretty good, for a post-rock fan lime me it's a great record, nice post-metal landscapes

also, I'm checking right now the Sally Shapiro album, it's great so far, obvoiusly I'm going to use it to drive, this kind of music is perfect for that

I can't get into Person Pitch, hard as I try. It has some great ideas and great harmonies, but the songs themselves are way too long and (most importantly) repetitive for me to really get into. Bros is basically 3 different ideas looped over and over for 12 minutes. Comfy In Nautica is killer though.

I used to the feel the exact same way about them. Fell In Love With A Girl made me angry. Not sure what happened, but it really sunk in one day...I think Elephant did it.

I find their music unremarkable. I had the misfortune of seeing them live once (I was working the show so slightly different vantage point) and they honestly did nothing special. In fact it almost reminded me a of a cock rock show, had pretty much most of the hallmarks thereof.

At least they're no longer all over the place like a few years ago.
