What do you think? I had to sift through over 100 different albums/EPs/7"s to put this thing together. It's 12 hours and 29 minutes long, and it would make one hell of a box set, don't you think? Robert Pollard might not be the most consistent songwriter ever, but I don't think I have ever come across someone who has written as many great songs.

Because Pollard is one of the greatest songwriters ever, and I wanted to collect all of his many underrated gems? I've found almost 100 great songs I didn't know about by doing this, which is a greater amount than all the new music I've heard in the past 3 years.

According to his profile he likes Beirut and "relevant indie bands" (i.e. bands praised by Pitchfork in the last 3 years). so you're probably right.

Seriously? An indie rock band who released four of the most acclaimed albums of the 90s - one of which made Pitchfork's top 10.

Never listened to this band because I'm not sure where to start, but this must've taken quite a while. Props.

Cuddleworthy? How are you tonight?

I mean, this guy just took the time to list 300 songs and put them onto 10 CDs. I don't know, it's kind of cool, but why? Maybe I just look into things too much.

I didn't actually put these on CD. I was just curious as to how many it would take to handle 300 songs. Since this is GbV, a lot of songs are under 2 minutes long.

At this point I'm going to assume that anyone under 20 has never heard of this band.
