Tortoise are amazing!
I just saw them in Detroit and Toronto and was blown away at both shows.
Listen to the album "TNT"... its the best place to start I'd say.

ehhhhhh, shut up

Standards and the new one are still pretty good. Obviously Millions Now Living and T.N.T. were their peak, but come on

there's nothing really wrong with either of the subesquent albums

saw tortoise few days go in montreal, i was completely amazed. McEntire is crazy on the drums.

all their album are excellent, but i still haven't heard It's All Around You in its entirely.

TNT should be a good start, or Millions.

"TNT" is one of my top ten favorite albums, and Tortoise in general are one of my favorite bands. I'll have to try and see if I can get to one of the European shows in July, namely Amsterdam, but it's unlikely cause I think that's exactly when all my exams are. Oh well.

I am just about to take the plastic off my new vinyl copy of "It's All Around You". I haven't heard anything from this except live, so my fingers are crossed.
