I just picked up both of Fun.'s (Fun's.? Fun's?) albums on vinyl and I'm really impressed with how much effort they put into them.

THG soundtrack is pretty good, especially the songs from Arcade Fire, The Low Anthem, Punch Brothers, and Jayme Dee.

The Shins and fun.'s new albums are pretty great.

There's a lot of talent I can get behind on the Hunger Games soundtrack, so I can get down with this.

I love The Shins new album so much. It's the only album so far that stopped me from constantly listening to Some Nights. Now I can't stop listening to Port of Morrow.

EDIT: I also would like to add that The Hunger Games soundtrack is one of the best I've heard in a while.
