At least for XLR8R anyways. We're glad to have his thoughts.

I think that's him on the cover too. Haha.

Yeah, I'm not sure what they have in common other than a vagina and a foreign accent. I like them both though.

I think Moments in Movement is a 2006 release. At least in Aussieland

Of those albums Bernard's is far and away my favorite album from this year. It's probably my favorite album of the year, but I have to finish digesting a few other albums before I can safely make that call in my own head. But it would definitely be in my top 3 albums of the year, with it most likely ending up number one long term.

I just haven't been able to get into this Buck album like I thought I would. It's not bad, it just doesn't have a strong entry point for me like his last several have. But then I was part of that contigent that loved the direction he was moving with his art the last several years, and a "return to form" is more a regression for me. Not saying the album is bad by any means, it's certainly fantastic. But it's so far proving to not really be my cup of tea.

And I still don't give half an asshole about that El-P album.

Can we get a non-hiphop top five albums from Sage perhaps?

I have heard so few albums this past year.
I never even heard the 11:11 album. So my top 5's are limited to what I've been exposed to, and all I've been exposed to this year is live performances.

What non-hiphop albums would you expect to be in my top 5?
Maybe I can go out and get them. Please don't list Roadiohead

I really think you'd like that Hellfire Hymns album by Those Poor Bastards. Deertick, maybe? Jens Lekman's album....The Liars album....Do you like Nick Cave? Because his Grinderman group album might be in there. Gogol Bordello was this year I think too. Feist's album. This might be easier:

Those Poor Bastards-Hellfire Hymns
Jens Lekman-Nightfalls over Kortedala
Do Make Say Think-You, You're History in Rust
Grinderman-Grinderman
Feist-The Reminder
Holly Golightly and the Brokeoffs-You Can't Buy a Gun When You're Crying
Gogol Bordello-Super Taranta
Sunset Rubdown-Random Spirit Lover
Joe Buck-Joe Buck Yourself(Hank Williams III's crazy bassist)
Modest Mouse-We Were Dead before the Ship Even Sank
Panda Bear-Person Pitch
White Stripes-Icky Thump
Deer Tick-War Elephant

Probably of this list I'd highlight Those Poor Bastards, the White Stripes album, Panda Bear, Jens Lekman, and Feist.

And I didn't like the Radiohead album either :-)

Oh what about Jim White and Nina Nastasia. Didn't you even make a thread about their album?

The Numero Group put out a comp of lost soul songs sung by kids [when the Jackson Five was blowin' up] and the release is incredible.

It's called "Home Schooled". I really like that new Sharon Jones and The Dap Kings too.

Don't worry, you are not missing out on much. Nothing to lose sleep over. Shit I was given this CD for free, and its still in the shrink wrap and will never get opened by me....

That is the best informed review I have ever read.

"You don't need to hear this record... shit, I haven't, and I'm doing just fine!"
