Well that's very sad. In a perfect world, another band that the likes of Stereogum talks about a lot more than Purity Ring. Maybe the best band to sit in a recliner and listen to with the lights off of the last 30 years.

If I'm alive 30 years from now, I'm going to teleport to the Stereogum writers' houses and make them revisit the value of Built To Spill music vs. Purity Ring.

As heartbreaking as a "This Week's Top Songs" blog entry omission can get. Purity Ring No. 1 and no Built To Spill makes me realize that in some ways, me and Stereogum are very different people.

Some bands could get away with titling a song "Supersoaker," but Kings of Leon is not one of them.

Built To Spill is my favorite post-90s band, and they don't tend to get a ton of pub here, so it's nice just reading the article and the comments from a few people who share the love.

These lists might as well be accompanied by a follow-up fan vote. More hits for and a consensus from the readers to hopefully lessen the kvetching.

I'd pay 2$ for having read this post because it stimulated my brain nerves. Thank you to the participants and Stereogum. I'll also try to go back and buy Yellow House, although it's always going to be a balance for me between wanting to pay what I think is fair, wanting to pay for music I really like and wanting to hear music I like as early as I possibly can.

Potentially more influenced by Siberian Khatru than any previous AC song?

Dang is that disappointing compared to their cover of "Beautiful Girls"

I've lived in some decades where putting these pretty good 80s British bands above Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd would be laughable. We're not in one of those decades, but probably the next one.

I love this song, and I'm probably about to take a downvote, but it's probably a top 100 all-time song for me if Michael McDonald is on vocals.
