This is great. I love to see successful bands treat their fans the way they would've loved to be treated by their favorite bands.

100% agree. It reminds me of the whole "Are video games art or not" argument. At the end of the day, who cares? Why does it matter? If you like a band, you like them, regardless of genre. If someone...

Yep, though Deja Entendu was certified gold in 2007, which means 500,000 copies of that record alone were sold. I'm still guessing close to 1.5 million. They never had a single even close to as big...

Whenever this band does decide to give it up, they should record the entirety of Songs From the Black Hole as their swan song. Guaranteed great final album.

Fair enough. And we'll see how things go; hell, last year a Pitchfork writer said he liked The Wonder Years' song "There There" more than the Radiohead song of the same name.

As far as Kanye goes: he gets ripped apart a lot, sure, but every album except College Dropout peaked at number 1. That's the height of commercial success in my mind. He also constantly tops year-end...

I completely agree with you that commercially it won't come close. I was only talking about critically. And I'd also argue that Kanye has replicated that.

And why is that? Before simply saying "Radiohead is a better band", I'm going off the assumption that this next one is Brand New's best album (which, of course, there's no way of knowing). Is there...

Modest Mouse, Kanye West, Brand New, and now Radiohead are all (probably) putting out new material soon... we're in for some great, and possibly classic, releases.

He's at $58... I think most of us could get that much in the same amount of time, even if we've never recorded anything before.

Also, since you touched on Paul McCartney: his discography has quite a few bad albums, but the sheer amount of quality output over so many years (not even including Beatles songs) is awe-inspiring.

If we could chop off Relient K's first and last albums, they'd make my list. And Kevin Devine deserves a shoutout aside from his debut.
