Re: Best album of the year?

Songs like Stay Alive, Teenager in Love are perfect pop pieces. It's hard to find a more listenable album this year.

It's throwback, sure...but that shouldn't be a demerit on the songs themselves.

The voice I hear is always a cooler version of my own voice, something spliced between my voice and Brando's voice. I never sing because I'm always so disappointed when I realize that I don't sound like my reading voice.

Neko Case.

I heard a couple of songs from the New Pornographers and I heard a single or two from her solo career, but I never made the move to explore her discography until a few months ago.

Furnace Room Lullaby is awesome. So sad her tickets sold out for the Toronto shows last month.
