OK, after finally listening to Doves' The Last Broadcast, I think my list may need some editing soon. We'll see how it ages for me, but man, that record is brilliant.

Have you listened to Lost Souls or Some Cities yet? Both are better than Last Broadcast imo...

Pitchfork is a great place to discover new bands I've never heard of. That's why.

Any love for Dismemberment Plan's Change record? Cracking band, and it's the only proper album they've released so far this decade. It's a good one too.

I believe I had it in the bulky version of my list.

Responding to my Top 20 not being as indie as expected or whatever, it still has stuff like Sufjan, I'm From Barcelona, The Pipettes and Beulah all of which 99% of Interferencers have never listened to an entire album from. If you took away Arcade Fire opening for U2, I'm sure they'd be lumped in the same category, excepting Canadian users.

As for #1 being a U2 album...whatever. I disagree with the point though that Stuck In A Moment is even remotely Adult Contemporary-ish. It's one of their boldest tracks of this decade and an excellent, out of the ordinary pop tune. I have no idea why that album is considered "mellow" by so many when HTDAAB has far more tracks that veer into the A&C radio category.

So far, Some Cities sounds very pleasant and enjoyable. Nothing that stops me in my tracks like Last Broadcast did though. Maybe it just needs to grow on me. Snowden is a great song though.

This is not to say Last Broadcast is a bad album, I just prefer the other two more…

I agree with this.

I really want the new album...I hope they keep pace with Elbow, who just put out a great record, in my humble little worthless opinion.

I dunno...Some Cities just sounds like Coldplay with better lyrics to me. It's airy, lacks an edge, and so on, but the songs are pretty damn good. Last Broadcast is fucking awesome; you never know what to expect from song to song. Its only weakness is how ridiculously overlong it is, but the quality of the music easily makes up for that.

and you know this...how? did you take a poll?

I can't say about the others, but I can almost certainly assure you more than 1% of Interference has listened to an entire Sufjan album.

I loves me all three, bottom line. BOTTOM LINE. And please do not mention Coldplay cos it might summon Rob33 or something.

He doesn't know, he talks out of his ass, but you're wise enough to have realized that already.
