I’m a MASSIVE Walkmen fan and I can honestly say this is a definitely a solid list. I’d input a top 10 list of my own if I didn’t think my brain would pop in any attempt to narrow my favorite tracks down to 10!
Such a legendary band… long live Yo La Tengo.
can’t believe this album is circumcised…
Reeeally looking forward to “The 10 Best Stereogum Worst To Best Stories From Worst To Best”
Very true my friend. I just started compiling my music collection in lossless format after going with 320kbps CBR for the longest time due to hard drive restrictions. So once I realized iTunes didn’t recognize FLAC files (which is just as, if not more fucking ridiculous as iPod’s not recognizing FLAC), I just decided to convert and store them as AIFF files.
If you’re looking for lossless support on an Apple MP3 player, just convert your FLAC files to AIFF or ALAC. Same difference really. I definitely wouldn’t consider anything other than the 160GB Classic though.
Everything since Applesauce has been really great.
If Michael_ had gotten the sweep, Stereogum would officially have had someone it could call King of the Trolls.
Fine tune that impeccable doucheness just a little bit more and I think you’ll have it Michael!
That album cover is bad ass. And from the sounds of it, this score will be just the same.
Setting my crush on Ms. Boucher aside, I must say that she’s got serious talent.
Such an incredibly solid album… And you’re 100% on point about “Nothin’ But Time” being quite possibly the best track she’s ever done.
Can’t even express how glad I am to know that there’s a true Walkmen fan within Stereogum…
“Hopefully it won’t have a dream-sequence level where you have to balance on an invisible red line while screaming-baby sound effects play on a loop; that thing stopped me cold when I was playing the first game.”
hahaha same here man… scariest game sequence ever.
fuck off alan… fuck off.
he mentioned big star.
nice work with this piece tom… quite well written.
