I was talking about disqualifying as a single in the charts, not inclusion in the album poll. But I should have said 22 mins to answer the question. So not quite a 100% correction. ;)

You answered a question that wasn't asked. I stand by my 100% correction. I win at life.

One of my favorite parts of these threads is reading about new albums I didn't know about because almost no one gave a fuck. Like I'm shocked the Hives had a new one. The Coral? I haven't even heard their name in (feels like) 5 years. Duran Duran produced by Justin Timberlake.

It's also possible that you're just out of the loop. Hives album came out recently and was fairly well received by the usual major media outlets. They also have new songs in a couple current TV commercials, recently toured, etc.

lol@ Elemento's list pic parody. Good stuff. Great list too.
Every Sunday morning I wake up
I see you by your dresser doing your make-up
Fluttering a Chinese fan in a Knoxville fashion
All last night you tossed and turned
Your body was hotter than the night Richmond burned
You say you had a bad nightmare about tractor trailers crashing

thanks, the one I had in mind meets both criterion

I know I'm a jerk in writing this, but: Criteria. :)

And caley, I love your 'covers as numbers' aesthetic. Would I like Eluvium? Eh?


Would you like Eluvium? Hmmm...you might, but you also might not. It's very pretty quiet, moody ambient music, so I'd be inclined to say hopefully to yes.

EH?*


* That's a Yorkshire thing rather than a Canada reference.

Even though you're saying that's a Yorkshire thing, it really is a Canadian thing, too. I always thought that was a silly stereotype like "aboot", but then I saw a friend of mine I hadn't seen for years and the entire conversation was: "So I was playing soccer, eh? And this big fuckin' guy came up and I took 'em down and was like "Wanna go, eh?" and the ref tossed me out and I have to meet the disciplinary committee and be all like apologetic, eh?" So, I guess it is a Canadian thing, too.

"'I Love My Dad' is the only one that slightly annoys me, maybe because I never loved my dad."

11. The National- Boxer

I love how that is tossed into the list of almost exclusively rap/hiphop/rnb


I am also happily surprised at the votes Person Pitch is getting. Amazed that Cassadaga has gotten so much love.
But among the jackals, the panthers, the bitch hounds, The apes, the scorpions, the vultures, the serpents, The yelping, howling, growling, crawling monsters, In the filthy menagerie of our vices, There is one more ugly, more wicked, more filthy! Although he makes neither great gestures nor great cries, He would willingly make of the earth a shambles And, in a yawn, swallow the world; He is Ennui! — His eye watery as though with tears, He dreams of scaffolds as he smokes his hookah pipe. You know him reader, that refined monster, — Hypocritish reader, — my fellow, — my brother!
