    My dad showed me Modest Mouse when I was a kid, this album in particular. Great album. This is another hard year, many great projects.

    That's dope, a friend I used to know back then owned that MM CD and let me borrow it--became a stan overnight!

    I was also considering Wilco's A Ghost Is Born & Funeral by Arcade Fire (as you can tell I'm a big Alt/Indie fan lol). Any recommendations you would recommend?

    I’ll have to check those out.

    My pick for this year was We Are Not Alone by Breaking Benjamin. It’s their second album. All of their discography is good. Their more recent album was a bit off because it was their first in 5 years with new members so there were growing pains.

    It’s not that I hate the album. I just hate that it made them drastically change their sound and s--- albums have followed.

    Plus the album wasn’t even supposed to happen.

    I’ve always wondered about the musical. I actually have the cd of the musical signed by the entire cast and Billie Joe Armstrong.

    How can you vote for Linkin Park and not shudder at yourself?
    I'm voting for Funeral by Arcade Fire
