Comments from Chris DeVille

It's wild how much better "Haiti" is live compared to the studio version. It's my least favorite track on Funeral, but it totally holds its own with the classics from that album in concert.

I get that it's super corny, but I listened to Reflektor while mowing the grass last weekend and "Normal Person" easily elicited the strongest reaction from me (in a good way). The part when they all scream "NO!" is so great.

"I've heard it" is indeed Tom's line, and Chairlift was indeed the original "I've heard it" album, which is a shame because Tom really underrated that one!

So, how 'bout all these killer new Hundred Waters songs?! Between the new EP and this lead single it feels like this band is really making The Leap this year.

We were just discussing this as a staff. Waxa is probably the first to get three straight, but it's possible Young Thug has three non-consecutive AOTWs.

Also the Staves album he produced remains one of the greatest albums of this decade

I actually think I like 22, A Million the best (I am not sure if that's a hot take), but they all hold up brilliantly.

Wiki is weird and conflicting on that album but the anniversary is actually Monday! Amazon (and part of the Wiki page) lists it as July 10, and if you look at a 2007 calendar July 10 was indeed a Tuesday, which was the release day back then. (All of this is a longwinded way of saying there will be a writeup on Monday.)

I don't know if I'd ride for Morning View as an album but "I Wish You Were Here" is a jam

I'm not sure how you could listen to You Forgot It In People's ambitious indie rock variety platter and not hear parallels to OK Computer, but maybe that's my bias talking.
