Maple Leaves 4eva. It’s been my ringtone for like eight years now.

If I could add one to the list though, it’d have to be Pocketful of Money.

At first glance, Built to Spill seems like it’d be a great, very Stereogum-ish choice for a 20-year think piece. But as I think about it, these pieces are often as much about what was going on with music culture at that time as they are about the album that’s being discussed. Put otherwise, they’re nostalgia trips, or at least in part. So with that being said, are there many Stereogum readers who are even of age to remember what music culture was like in 1994 (pretty much 30+) who listened to Built to Spill at age 10-15? I’m not sure, but I’d venture a “no.” I myself am 30 and I didn’t discover BtS until I was 16, so that’d be around 2000. But I sure did love shit like Live at age 10.

If we’ve got people over 40, it’s very possible that they were into Built to Spill in 1994. But I just don’t know how many of them we’ve got.

That band has a seriously solid discography, more consistently good than the vast majority of what I listen to. Them and Oasis are my favorites of the Britpop era, although I’d probably go Supergrass over Oasis. Life on Other Planets is perfect.

Oh don’t get me wrong, I’m with you. The drama is awesome. And he is spot-on about a lot of stuff.
