Ono, you're still in love with all those Canadian bands, huh?
Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.

The Beatles know Jesus Christ has returned to Earth and is in Los Angeles.

I'll update with my top 5.

1. Mew - No More Stories...

2. The Decemberists - The Hazards of Love

3. Radiohead - Amnesiac

4. Sigur Rós - ( )

5. Imogen Heap - Ellipse

No More Stories and The Hazards of Love have been my two most favorite albums for years. They have stood up to an absurd number of listens and have grown on me more than I imagined was possible.

I could have chosen something else for #5, like a Bjork or a Múm or a Beatles. But I have to be honest and let the list relflect that I've listen to Ellipse many many times.

I might have even included a Paramore album, but none of them are consistent enough. If I could put together a Paramore compilation with "Hallelujah," "All I Wanted," "Careful," and "Be Alone," that could take #4.
"Hunger is the purest sin"
