Where to start?
I've just listened to Keep It Like A Secret. I like it, but prefer Broken Chairs' wig-out and the clever little pop song at the start to all the Death Cab for Cutie stuff in the middle. Did they do more stuff like that?
There's Nothing Wrong With Love is more clever little pop songs.
KILAS is a bit rubbish, I just think it makes the best starting point in terms of brevity and focus and stuff.
or Perfect from now on. Both are ace.
perfect from now on, then there's nothing wrong with love (which unfairly gets pigeonholed as 'lightweight pop songs' when it actually contains just as much epic cello and lengthy guitar jams as anything else they did). the rest of their stuff has it's moments but those two are definite classics.
that's all you need to know
