    That's a lot of years for just 5 picks ... these are some of my big favorites that I've had on the turntable in the last coupla days, got it down to 7 ...

    Richmond Fontaine - Post To Wire
    The Revolutionary Army of the Infant Jesus - Beauty Will Save the World
    Nina Nastasia - The Blackened Air
    Songs:Ohia - Didn't It Rain
    Life Without Buildings - Any Other City
    Notwist - Neon Golden
    Richard Buckner - Our Blood

    Then of course there's that one in my signature, and ... oh, and Caribou Up In Flames on right now, that could definitely be one of them too ...

    It's difficult to distill 17 years of music into five choices, but these five albums would be amongst my all time favorites:

    The Exploding Hearts - Guitar Romantic
    The Dears - No Cities Left
    Marina & The Diamonds - The Family Jewels
    The Like - Release Me
    The Pipettes - We Are The Pipettes
  13. TheSeldomSeenKid

    Lost Souls-DOVES(could easily pick 'The Last Broadcast')
    Origin of Symmetry-MUSE('Absolution' is not far behind)
    The Seldom Seen Kid-Elbow
    Halcyon Digest-Deerhunter
    Night Thoughts-Suede

    Still spending time with 'A Moon Shaped Pool', as it has potential to if not make my Top 5, then Top 10 since 2000.
    Wanted to include 'Fear of a Blank Planet' by Porcupine Tree, 'Z' by My Morning Jacket, 'Heathen' by Bowie and 'ST' by Franz Ferdinand, but would then need this to be a Top 10 List.
