My formative years were during the nu-metal outbreak so I’ve got a nostalgic, unironic attachment to nearly all those bands. YUP IT’S TRUE I like both Limp Bizkit and Linkin Park mixed in with my Dirty Projectors and Sun Kil Moon.

That said, I would still rather be pulled behind the boat than be on it.

OoOoOoOoh, sounds like Zooey’s a meanie pixie dream girl.

That piano/keyboard (I wanna say Rhodes?) that comes in at 0:11 is SO O.C. I can see Seth Cohen floating in his infinity pool sadly with this playing.

This was one of my favs of Songs of Innocence, really a top-tier post-2000 U2 single…not sure about this version though. The chorus is a little too loud for the rest of the song, I feel it would have been better if Bono reined it in. Still, a great melody is a great melody.

I’m not really a classic rock guy so I don’t know much about Pink Floyd but didn’t they have an album cover where there is two business guys shaking hands and one of them is on fire? Or was that ACDC?

I never thought I’d hear The Decemberists sing the words “Axe commercial”, but there they are in the first song. It’s very Weezer-ish.

I think you have to go into it accepting that Picaresque and Crane Wife were the pinnacle (and what a pinnacle they were). It’s a solid, but not mind-blowing, entry into their catalogue with some great songs. Cavalry Captain is straight up single material, as is Make You Better.

Decemberists, Sufjan, Death Cab! I’m gonna be staring wistfully out windows all year long.
