Comments: What separates man from the apes? Apes don't make lists of their favorite CDs.

What about Fountains of Wayne's "Welcome Interstate Managers"? Or did that not make the list because they left in just a little too much B-side material?

No, I liked that album very much...seeing as it was my #1 pick for 2003.

I found American Idiot to be not worth the hype. Though to be honest I haven't made it through the whole thing yet.

A lot of my top picks for this year are probably too poppy for your delicate indie sensibilities. You might like the Secret Machines album though.

I thought the difference was that apes download music from the Internet because they don't know it's wrong.
