That's funny... I love that album, and I've never met anyone else who's even heard of the guy.  I covet his sideburns, as well.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

Weird. Oh

Yeah I love that album. Highly underrated. I saw him recently at the Tap Room in the Knitting Factory in NYC. Drove from philly up to see him play only 6 songs :(. At least it was only 8 bucks. Great soulful voice live as well.

i don't know what to roll my eyes at more: that you're both following some sort of trend, or that one of you is clearly not following closely enough to get the damn title right.

nevermind, they're on the floor now.

The trend is that people are starting to realize how brilliant the album really is. 

And for those keeping score at home, I got the title right. 

(he sings "an" in the actual song, though)

Yeah, I got it wrong, I was thinking of the song.

It was amazing the first time I heard it, and it gets better everytime after that.  It's just really, really well assembled.

I'm thinking that your old list is about fifty times better.

Yeah, nothing against Panic at the Disco, but I have the feeling that in a couple of years you're going to see that on your list and go, "WTF?"

You switched to the right Spoon album, though.  We also would have accepted "Kill the Moonlight".
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

wait wait wait...Flickerstick...correct me if I'm wrong but isn't that the band that won that vh1 contest years ago? Knowing me there is alot of room for error, but I'm positive that it is the same band, possibly different band with same shitty name...and i realize that my musical taste has changed alot, but the shit I heard on that show was in fact shit...I'm not one to knock, but i just pictured that band being garbage, and by garbage i mean shit...is it the same band, is the question?


Edit: Top Ten Cd's(in some sort of order)

1. Weezer - Pinkerton
2. Ozma - Rock and Roll pt. 3
3. Nirvana - Unplugged in New York
4. Taking Back Sunday - Tell All Your Friends
5. Pixies - Doolittle
6. Beatles - White Album
7. Cursive - The Ugly Organ
8. The Postal Service - Give Up
9. Ozma - The Doubble Donkey Disc
10. Glassjaw - Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Silence

Wow, That was hard...Head Automatica's New cd is working it's way on this list, and I'm sure it's going to change tomorrow...I'm stressed after doing that...dammit
it's not the wrench, it's the plumber.
