The Decemberists being an honorable mention is laughable.

That's my top three albums too. Finally someone gives Ritter some credit.

I'm going to overturn this vote and say that Bahama's Barchords is the best album of the week. Nice try Stereogum.

It was my understand that AC Newman of the New Pornographers was working on a solo album. But either way, I welcome both with open arms.

I can see Pitchfork having a hay-day with this release. It's discouraging to see that "professional music critics" will overlook at the progression in Sam Beam's sound. Sure, this album might be the most accessible album to date, but do not discredit it. In Kiss Each Other Clean, it seems, that Sam is getting more confident in his voice and one can see his voice shine in tracks like "Godless Brother". The term overproduced will be thrown a lot through various sites and blogs, but this album is stellar to say the least.
