1. Phoenix, It's Never Been Like That
2. Morrissey, Ringleader of the Tormentors
3. Prince, 3121

haven't had the Dylan long enough to put it up there, but as much as I like it it ain't Love and Theft. And I'm glad this wasn't a top 5, or I may have felt compelled to put Christina Aguilera or Timberlake up there for full disclosure.

Semi-disappointed, mind you. Just felt sort of rote, at times. Xiu Xiu's albums typically hover around 7.0-7.5, for me (minus A Promise, which is an easy 7.9 or 8.0...higher if you pretend that "Walnut House" never happened, as it's the only song more horrifying and objectionably bad than was September 11, 2001), but I think that The Air Force is more in the 6.5 or slightly lower range. It's good, but no more than that. Especially after those first three songs, I felt like the rest of the album came across as awfully rehearsed.

It's good, but not too exciting and certainly not too great. Even so, I think that U2 should invite Xiu Xiu along to open, for the next tour (if there ever is one).



I see your point, I relate "A Promise" with "Fabulous Muscles" and "La Foret" with the new one, those albums are in the same vein

and also... I almost can hear the audience booing in a U2 concert with Xiu Xiu as opening act

Anyway, off-topic. Sorry. At any rate, it depresses me that the new Pearl Jam and Red Hot Chili Peppers albums are enough to convince people that 2006 was a good year for music. I think it's great if that was enough to sell you, as that means you're enjoying a lot of music a lot more than I am. Even so, Stadium Arcadium was easily the single worst album I actually listened to, all year...from within the confines of my own perspective, I could almost weep at the thought of that being one of the best pieces of music I'd heard, this year. This is not a personal attack or anything, so I hope people don't take offense. It's just me expressing utter befuddlement, basically. Did that album do really well on the charts, in the US? I want to say that it did, right...or was that the Tom Petty Greatest Hits album that sold so well...?
haha, I'm with you, well, I'm more surprised than depressed, it surprises me to see "Stadium Arcadium", Keane' and Artic Monkeys' albums... three of the most boring albums this year in my humble opinion

but I guess that's because these bands and albums exist, because people like them, and that's ok

It's nice to see I don't influence you at all. (Hey, I've had MuteMath for months and I haven't unzipped it yet. Oops!)
