Close to the Edge was the album that got me interested in music at the tender age of ten. It'll always be a special work for me and those three compositions are really embedded in my consciousness. It's brainy but so filled with feeling. Also very happy to see Magnification so high. It's pretty dorky, but those strings really add a lot.

Impeccable. This is my favorite Sufjan tune, period.

Totally agree. And I know this is a bold claim, but I think "The Beast and Dragon, Adored" is Spoon's best album opener.

This is a good pick, but it all about The Waterfall for me.

It just sounds like aggro-rock to me. :(

Am I the only one that does not like "Puffer?" Like at all? It makes me sad because I love Major Arcana, and "Raising the Skate" is so fucking awesome, but the aesthetic of "Puffer" just completely turns me off.

I've heard this whole album, and it's really fucking good. I didn't expect MMJ to be able to come back so strong, but they really bring it.

I'm not quite understanding the assertion that his rap abilities are somehow lesser to me. There are countless verses where dude raps his ass off. Sure, nothing bangs, and maybe you have to dig a little deeper to get to the right verses, but I think his technical talents as a rapper are totally on full display here.

Yep, I was straight speechless my first listen. I didn't have any specific expectations, but I definitely wasn't expecting this... It's incredible.

This is fucking awesome. It's hard not to get excited when that tempo speeds up in the first third.

Shit yeah! Loved the last album. Also, I always perk up at Chris Coady's name - Future Islands, Hooray for Earth's last album, Beach House. Dude's got a good track record.

Should've ended after the guitar solo. I mostly loved it though! Kinda hoping this album skews a little Narrow Stairs-y.

It's all about the review though. Maybe if they changed anything it would be calling an album "Album of the Week" at the time they review it, instead of the Tuesday post. But I wouldn't want to read two different reviews of the same album if it's PE and AotW. I like this system because it highlights underdog albums from time to time, and besides, usually we all know what the "real" AotW is anyway.

YES! All Delighted People is amaaaaaazing. Usually criminally overlooked, too. (Also, it belongs with his albums as it's just as long as an album, rather than an EP.)
