i like a lot of the songs on it, but as an album its not as good. Their EP that they released before it is pretty sweet though.

Bonnie 'Prince' Billy - Lie Down in the Light
French Kicks - Swimming
Man Man - Rabbit Habbits
The Tallest Man on Earth - Shallow Grave
The Black Keys - Attack and Release

Honorable mention for R.E.M.'s Accelerate. It isn't great but considering the two albums that came before it I was quite happy.

That Vampire Weekend album is catchy as all hell. I think I played it on and off for a week straight once I first heard it but hardly ever since.

the man man album was a big let down for me. so was the british sea power album, but i expected that. wolf parade's album was underwhelming but still alright. it feels like all the spencer krug bands are losing their identities the more he goes along.

i dont see what the big deal is with the fleet foxes record. seems very ordinary.

im gonna give the grouper album a listen some time tomorrow

why wouldn't you like it, have you heard their other material and didn't like it?

it's up for download on their blog [along with everything they've released] for free anyway:

yeah, the first two weeks is more of a grower, it's better to start with the diana 12"

i wouldn't say that the singles are that iffy, all the A-sides they've done: Doorbell Fire, Yellow Mice Sleep, Two Months, In a Web, are great. even Mirror Lights is good. the b-sides aren't as strong but i still enjoy them all, I can't think of a Blank Dogs song yet I really don't like.
