RO: Titus Andronicus's first album is pretty stellar. I'm gonna have to retry The Monitor. :)
The Monitor was pretty good...I would give it a 7.5.
I'd give it at least an 8.3.
I have a hard time giving The Airing of Grievances any less than an 8, and it's almost universally accepted that The Monitor is a step up, so color me excited.
I think Jaguar Love might just be the most irritating band I've heard in a very long time. I feel sick after hearing their new album...
Eh, I found it an above average indie rock album, the highest I would give it would be an 8.
RO: I can't believe I waited this long to listen to Echo and the Bunnymen, the string arrangements on Ocean Rain are ****ing brilliant.
