1. I still like A Ghost is Born. Call me crazy. I love A Ghost is Born. Maybe more than YHF. I've never really understood why it was perceived as a disappointment to so many Wilco fans. Although, I will admit, my love for the record really grew once I saw them play it live. The songs seemed a bit m...

I second the kudos for Children of Men -- my favorite movie in a while. Really brilliant. The three long, cutless shots are incredible.

Anyone read the 33 1/3 book on Pet Sounds? That's the one I wanna check out. I haven't read any of them, but Forever Changes rules. Pet Sounds is the best of the 33 1/3 series that I've read so far, and I've read about 8 of them. Really well written -- it deeply examines not only the brilliance of ...

A good bridge is consistently my favorite part of many songs. A well-written bridge adds another shade and texture to a song, and often takes it from good song to great song in my mind. Favorite bridge of all time: "Driver 8" by R.E.M. A good song, but could easily verge on tiresome until you hit th...

What do y'all think of Furnace Room Lullabye ? I like it's straight alt-country better than what I've heard on Blacklisted . Anyone happen to agree, or am I alone on this one? They're about even to me, but "Twist the Knife" from Furnace Room Lullabye is definitely the standout between those two alb...

Perhaps this has been discussed elsewhere, but does the GloNo-populace carrry any love for Neko's newest, Fox Confessor Brings the Flood?

It's currently my personal favorite for record of the year.

Great thread idea, and I really like this quite a bit. As far as instrumental post-rock goes, I'd say this is an improvement over the last two Mogwai albums, which were disppointing.
