The second A7X album is (IMO) the closest they've come to a stone-cold classic and I hope that Second Heartbeat, Chapter Four, And All Things Will End, and Both Parts of I Won't See You Tonight get released. I'm not too fond of the first album, though.
The list of bands I see coming from SubPop is impressive. A lot of those I would snatch up.
I always considered TAG to be just one step ahead of every other authoring group. Now they seem lightyears ahead. Fairwood, ASP, etc better step it up!
