waited until i could get it on vinyl to give it a listen.

it lacks obvious hooks on the first listen. kinda same-y, yeah, but i hope that goes away with more spins. they’ve definitely created an atmosphere devoid of funeral’s sweeping highs and lows, but it’s still enjoyable and full of feeling. the Regine songs are the standouts, i think.
seems like the suburbs will be one of those albums that will fit nicely into the background while i study or work, whereas funeral always reaches out and demands my attention too much for me to be able to focus on anything else.

interestingly, “suburban war” is track 15 on vinyl (rather than track 9)… which is good, because that makes “month of may” the opener for disc 2. really needed an infusion of energy at that point when i was putting on side 3.

yep. inoffensive, low-key, catchy, poppy goodness. not expecting a radical departure from The Rhumb Line.

I mean … yeah. “Kid A” should be in the top 10 (nevermind the top 125) no matter what your criteria … most influential, greatest album, best vocal performance, most beautiful fucking lyrics, &c. I am OK, however, with OK Computer being their highest ranked Radiohead LP.
NMH’s absence is also glaring, for sure. “It’s Blitz!” is not the YYY’s best album. REM should be higher up, as should Wilco. More Smiths, more Pixies, please.

but it’s aight.
