I'm still not sure which National album I prefer, Boxer or Alligator, probably Boxer by a tad because of the horns

And I also got into them through La Vida Aquatica.


If they ever come to town, I'm seeing them. I'll drag my friends with me, I don't care, I'm going.

I agree with your assessment.

Seriously, they've put out four LPs and they just seem to steadily improve, strong evolution between each.

Yeah, there's this thing called "downloading". It's still pretty new, but it's the future.

If someone buys 10 album at even 15 dollars a piece, that's only $150. How is that ridiculous for 6 months? Even 20 albums?

If you don't have a job or have to save for other things, that's still expensive.

I bought Icky Thump and Neon Bible on the day of release, I'll probably do the same with LP7.

If you're unemployed and under 15 years old, you have bigger things to worry about then how to get your music.

Or you don't have your license yet, add that to the list.

Top album of 2007 so far...HANDS DOWN =

Kings of Leon 'Because of the Times'

Blown away by the Followill kids on this one...

Other highlights so far -

1. 'Favourite Worst Nightmare' (do Me a Favour, 505, D is for Dangerous, Balaclava, The Bad Thing, etc.)
2. LCD Soundsystem continues to make really smart and fun music
3. 'Icky Thump' is a blast too (Martyr For my Love, Rag and Bone, Effect and Cause, etc.)
4. Girls Aloud vs. Sugababes 'Walk This Way' (Another example of Sex-soaked British pop-perfection from the girls)
5. 'Year Zero' is more goodness from Reznor too

- - - Live I have seen Arctic Monkeys, Kings of Leon, Decemberists, and the Hold Steady

Looking forward to:

Radiohead obviously
Coldplay
R.E.M.
Girls Aloud

P.S...'Weekend in the City' and 'Neon Bible' were disappointing sophomore albums by disappointingly pompous and pretentious bands.

By my count, I've bought either new or used 21 albums this year. Most of the new ones have been for 9.99 since I normally buy things the day they come out from Best Buy. This isn't including albums I've had lala'd to me (10 more, but who's counting).

I'd imagine I've spent somewhere around 250 dollars on albums in 2007 alone. That's half of one paycheck, seperate from my tips. I think I'm well within budget.
