Brief Reviews

Going to try the hand at some brief record reviews.

Neutral Milk Hotel
In the Aeroplane Over the Sea
It is slow and commanding poetry and although there is a long list of things that have done so: this album changed my life.

The Microphones
The Glow Pt.2
It is hard to finish but only because it is enormous and personal and intimate and passionate and honest and overwhelming.

The Weakerthans
Left and Leaving
A long time ago I resolved that when I was in love and the feelings were reciprocated that we would lie in the dark, head to head like a game of lovely dominos, and we would hear this record and it would be bigger than words can contain (try as we might).
