Um, that’s not how these work.

I actually think Nine Types Of Light is their best album. The more reserved approach of that album suited the band perfectly, especially since I think their rockers are hot garbage (Dear Science is a great sounding record, but “Dancing Choose” is just a dreadful song). Anyways…I guess I’m saying I like minor TVOTR and find the big albums somewhat unsatisfying.

Whoa, you’ve got Nursery Cryme ridiculously low. The top three’s right, but I’d slot NC in at 4 just ahead of A Trick Of The Tail.

Cool interview. Change is my favorite album of the 2000s. It feels like one of the last great, truly smart indie records. It just amazes me for both its musicianship and lyrics.

Uncanney Valley is no Change, but I still throw it on with regularity. I think it got a bad rap on first go, but it’s still a pretty dorky record.

“Shake It Off” really does sound like a song the Plan could have written.

You won’t get downvoted for pushing against the bandwagon. you will get downvotes for posting the most indie-wank, elitist, whitebred bullshit post ever.

That sounded backhanded, but I assure you it was a very real compliment.

Someone came in here and downvoted every post. Weird.

Ooh, also, this is a great essay. Takes me back to the old Status Ain’t Hood days. Classic Breihan sticking up for the gajillion-selling little guys.

The Outsiders is just the fucking jam. One of my favorite albums of the year.

Hyden’s a great music critic. honestly one of the very best, but he is way off in nearly his entire assessment of Weezer. It was wild reading that, actually. Defended “We Are All On Drugs” and trashed the new album (also threw some relative shade on Pinkerton). Such a weird, wrong article.
