'08's Music to Love More Than Music: Like, Pt. 13

Like ( )
British Sea Power - Do You Like Rock Music?
This album was absolutely EPIC. But after I listened to it six or seven times at the beginning of the year, I didn't pick it up again. I felt guilty for it, yes, but I still didn't pick it up again. I don't know why either. I just listened to it again today and I found so much about the album to respect and love, but I still was not captured. BSP should be happy to know I'm hard to please sometimes. I still really adore the album. (see original review)
British Sea Power - Lights Out for Darker Skies

Gnarls Barkley - The Odd Couple
They'll never live "Crazy" down. It's honestly a cliche to say so, but it's true, and it needs to be said. That said, I felt that this album was a lot more soulful and intelligent than their last album, and ought to have more respect attached to it. It's not as catchy, but it's certainly a good effort. (see original review)
Gnarls Barkley - A Little Better

The Terrible Twos - Jerzy The Giant
I loved the initial TT release because it was just the most adorable, Summery album I've ever heard. This album really felt more like a kids album than the other one did, even though they were both supposed to be. I dunno why. Just did. I'd recommend the other one before I recommended this one, but it's not like this has bad songs on it. I'm just not 12 anymore, ya know? That's why I skipped Kimya's new one.
The Terrible Twos - Say Say Anything

Andrew Bird - Soldier On
A good filler EP, but I need more Mr. Bird. Thankfully his next full release is set to drop in like a month. (see original review)
Andrew Bird - The Water Jet Cilice
