This was the album I originally knew I was going to pick when this group started.

Their first album is full of the same amazing songwriting and hooks, including by far their most popular song "Archie, Marry Me" but it was done on the budget of a restaurant server's tips. So the Wall of Sound is more like a Fortress of Sound. But still a great listen and I regularly listen to both back-to-back in an hour's sitting.

Earthling, like every Bowie album, is inventive. No Bowie albums sounds like anything I’ve heard. The only late Bowie record I’ve listened to is Black Star. This was a good listen.

Just finished the Bowie. It's, shockingly, the first Bowie album I've ever listend to straight through. It was really enjoyable - very different from what I've been listening to lately, but still liked it.

For this week I'm going with Vertigo by Jump Little Children from 2001.

I love Jay Clifford's voice. This is one of those albums that I can play from start to finish and not skip a single one. Hope y'all enjoy!

That Alvvays record was upbeat, and very unique. I’m not a huge follower of alternative or indie music today but I definitely enjoyed listening to this.

Forgot to post my thoughts when I listened to this, but now that it's been a few days I can't remember much more than it being fun indie pop. Maybe I need to listen again.

I highly recommend their albums Magazine and Between the Dim and the Dark as well. I was between Magazine and Vertigo for my pick, but was more in the mood for Vertigo this go around. Magazine has their most famous song, Cathedrals.

My personal favorite is Magazine. Their annual acoustic concerts they used to do were fun.

That Alvvays record is perfectly polished. Love the similarities to Stars.

The Jump, Little Children record was enjoyable, I haven't listened to them in 15+ years....but this one reminds me of a Jeff Buckley/Jason Mraz collaboration in the best ways.

I get more than a small Radiohead feel from this. About halfway through, and so far really, really like it.

This thread has been one of the better music things I've done.

I’m a little late with it, but I’ve been feeling extra nostalgic for Tom Petty’s “Full Moon Fever,” lately. If you haven’t ever heard it....what the fuck? And if you haven’t heard it in a while, time to revisit.

Yer So Bad and Zombie Zoo are sneaky good, aside from the super hits you know. It’s in my top 5 of all time. Long live Tom Petty.
