As a Huge Rush Fan, I scratch my head at your inclusion of HYF. Even the guys in Rush can't seem to stand it (according to their "official", recently released bio). However, to each his own, right?

I'm very fond of the following albums:

Muse - Absolution
Aimee Mann - Lost in Space
Juliana Hatfield - In Exile Deo
Rush - Signals, Hemispheres, Permanent Waves, A Farewell to Kings, Grace Under Pressure, among others
The Donnas - Spend the Night
Matthew Sweet - 100% Fun

And I'm having a hard time coming up with more off the top of my head. Goodbye.

Edit to add: Weezer - Blue Album (thanks Sepiche!)

Weezer - Blue Album
Flaming Lips - Yoshimi Battles
Everclear - Sparkle and Fade
They Might Be Giants - Flood
Flogging Molly - (Can't remember the name... the one before Drunken Lullabies)
Pogues - Rum, Sodomy, and the Lash
Dropkick Murpheys - The Gangs All Here
Mary Prankster - Blue Skies Forever
Green Day - American Idiot

I know there's a ton more.  I'll update as I think of them.

The Decemberists - Castaways and Cutouts

I assume that this album is pretty good then?  I have Her Majesty the Decemberists and like it quite a bit, although some tracks are better than others.

I have both, and I prefer C&C. It seems a little more even than Her Maesty... "Leslie Anne Levine" is one of the more haunting tunes I've ever come across.

I hate you.



OK, not really.  But I am awfully jealous.  Never got into Boingo until after they broke up.  Now I wish I could have seen them live.  frown

Thanks, Raven, I thought I'd be the first to past that.

In no particular order:

Cure - Disintegration
Bruce Springsteen - Nebraska
Radiohead - Amnesiac (Most Liked Album)
Radiohead - Ok Computer (Next best)
Radiohead - Kid A (You get the)
Radiohead, The Bends (idea)
Black Sabbath - paranoid (my weakest selection of this list, IMO)
Rem - Murmur (Dear God, other than Price's 1999, look at the music 20+ years ago when this was released.  Absolutely F$^&% Amazing)
Bob Dylan - Blood on The Tracks
Neil Young - Harvest
Beck - Sea Change
Pink Floyd - Meddle
Pink Floyd - Dark side of the Moon
Pink Floyd - Wish you were here
Chris Isaak - Forever Blue
Ben Folds Five - Unauthorized biography of Reinhold Messner

At least three of my picks I consider contenders for the "Greatest album of all time" title.

DYSLEXIC RUMPY!!!!

Man, I was wondering where I was going to get my Celtic recommendations from. Am I ever glad to see you around. biggrin

But to answer your question, Rant and Roar would be a gimmie, but I'm not including it because it's actually a compilation of two other albums (I left off greatest hits albums for the same reason). The two full albums that I have, Something Beautiful and Sea of No Cares, are really good but are just under the Top 20 this week. Ask me for my Top 20 in a week and Something Beautiful may very well pop in there.

I really need to wrangle a trip to Canada and pick up the rest of their CDs. Imports are way too pricy for me. I am going to try to pester the wife into letting me get their new live CD/DVD. Does that have the Ypmur Seal of Approval?

Here are mine (pretty genre intrusive):

VNV Nation - Futureperfect
VNV Nation - Empires
Neuroticfish - Les Chansons Neurotique
In Strict Confidence - Holy
Dismantled - Dismantled
Assemblage 23 - Failure (and possibly Storm now)

Amelie Soundtrack
FFVI Soundtrack

There's more, but I can't think of them right now.

*edit* rushed this post while attending class.  Here's more:
U2 - Joshua Tree
Depeche Mode - Songs of Faith and Devotion (better than Violator in my mind)
The Best of Andrew Lloyd Weber

lol I was wondering when someone would figure it out.  I figured I would go with the fairy tale since that's what my original username was based on, except make it backwards just like the fairytale slywink

Glad to be appreciated around here lol smile

Hmmm, well, I don't have a DVD player, so I can't really tell you directly what I think about the hybrid, but it's basically the same thing as the Great Big DVD released a few years ago, except that this time it incluces an audio CD of the same thing.  If you've watched PBS, you may have caught Great Big Sea Live. That's what this is, in DVD form with a few things that weren't on the original concert special. Although, I might be mistaken, but I think the hybrid is also the American release of the Great Big DVD since it hadn't been available in the states previously except by import. It's also kind of similar to the Road Rage album, except this concert is more recent, including some stuff from Sea of No Cares, while Road Rage was released before Sea of No Cares. Note that if you buy it across the border, you wouldn't be getting the hybrid, only the DVD itself.

Sepiche, GBS is Great Big Sea, a Celtic Folk Rock Band from Newfoundland. Check them out: www.greatbigsea.com
