Not trying to be nitpicky but the Band Of Horses record is Infinite Arms, not Infinite Days. Also what didn't you like about it? Definitely one of my favorite this year.

Curious as to how Deftones was a disappointment. Obviously it's all subjective, but an explanation is warranted. You bastard.

Nice Bruno Mars mention. His voice is electric and that album is a quick, easy listen. Love "The Lazy Song".
