The intro to 'Minnesota, WI' is one of my favorites ever.

Listen to this album every single night before I sleep. And sometimes in the car and at other times during the day. It's the best

Yeah, dude. The beginning of that song is ridiculously groovy. And they do it so well live, too -- it's insane.

It's definitely creeping into my all-time favs, too.

I'm sure it's already on mine. I listen to it at least weekly.

you should really listen to Talk Talk, Peter Gabriel or Calexico.

i like this album as much as the next guy, but its a mite overrated. and nowhere near as revolutionary as it was toted when released.

although "Beth/Rest" is a great pop song.

I don't think anyone really thought it was "revolutionary." Just insanely well-crafted.

It's funny that you've just convinced me to do the same considering the original album I had was Post, haha.

Haha, that's a tricky call! Think you're probably making the right decision though, Post is a wee bit too loud to listen to when you're trying to sleep. I wanna dance to 'It's Oh So Quiet', not lie in bed ha. Though, 'Headphones' is pretty much the perfect song to listen to late at night. So, you should listen to BI, BI and then just chuck on 'Headphones'. Perfect.

Also, you may be interested in this. Stereogum put together a free tribute album to Post where each song is covered by a different artist. I only just heard about it just now when I browsing the wiki page for the album. I haven't listened to it yet, so I can't vouch for the quality, but some cool artists have taken part (Dirty Projectors, No Age, Atlas Sound, Xiu Xiu, Liars), so it might be worth a listen.

Edit: Xiu Xiu absolutely butchers 'Isobel'. Holy fuck.
