Comments: Tuning up

But The Arcade Fire album's so good!

I agree that the Kaiser Chiefs album was disappointing, but about half the songs are still pretty decent. I keep coming back to "Learnt My Lesson Well." "Ruby" is a horrible Guitar Hero song though.

And no Spoon? What kind of hipster are you?

I like the Arcade Fire album when I'm listening to it, but it slides off my brain, and I never just think, "You know what I want to hear? That Arcade Fire CD." Maybe if I make a point of listening to it more, next year I'll feel dumb for not including it. I like it better than the Modest Mouse album; this year may have been the point where Isaac Brock's voice started getting irritating to me. Musically, the album is great, but his voice gets to me and I end up turning the album off; the only way I get to the last song is if I start in the middle.

I probably should have bought the Spoon album. I did really like what I heard from MP3 blogs, especially "The Ghost of You Lingers", but the other Spoon albums I own haven't really ended up making a big impression on me.

I tried to like the Feist samples I heard on iTunes, but finally just gave up and bought "1, 2, 3, 4." I think she hits that same twee-soprano vibe as Regina Spektor, which drives me nuts. But I'm right there with you on the Richard Thompson and New Pornographers, and I just picked up the Robert Plant/Alison Krauss.

Awesome. Ethan Lipton edged out Radiohead.

Radiohead made the fatal error of not putting you in their video.
