Anyone who underrates Chris Bear is a damn fool who should have their medical license taken away.

Agreed. And if ever there was a band for whom I'll smile and forgive a man bun, it's Local Natives.

Among other things they're executing fantastically, Local Natives is always doing what way more bands in this sphere should be doing with drums.

Even though it's probably not exactly true, I love the fact that my boy Wes Miles looks like he's wearing my Built To Spill t-shirt.

You're gonna motivate Wes Miles like Ra Ra Riot is the Michigan State football team.

The Good, The Bad & The Queen and Demon Days are both top 20 albums of the 2000s for me.

Nice start to the new album. If they put out a good album that gets ignored by the Stereogum community, I'm going to have to insist that the Stereogum community get off my lawn.

The lack of respect for Ra Ra Riot in these comments so far makes me think this story is mostly being read by people who discovered Stereogum by Googling "Carly Rae Jepsen praise".

As far as clickbait goes, I definitely would have called it a David Gilmour cover in the article.

Electronic bands get a well-deserved tax write-off in most countries for having a song called "Need You Now."

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.
