In my opinion 2 albums stick out like sore thumbs and that is
Arms Way by Islands
Dear Science by TV On The Radio
Both fundemently good, but all feel incredibly soulesss as if the music is just there. TV On The Radio is still a strong album but deffinatly isnt as good as everyone is making it out to be (initial buzz) and Islands album is just so mediocre it hurts.
Sebastian Grainer, also! WTF! :( I miss DFA, the EP was good but over the course of an album it just doesnt work!
