Matt Johnsen proclaimed:
The New Pornographers - Challengers. This is my wife's fave NP album. I prefer Twin Cinema, but this is a great tone, too. The title track is astoundingly, almost unbelievably great.
This one was way too laid-back for what I guess I wanted to hear from the New Pornographers when it came out, although every time I've gone back to it since then I've liked it more and more and understood my original opinion less and less.

I mean, it's got "Challengers", "Unguided", "Failsafe", "Mutiny, I Promise You", "My Rights versus Yours"... what the hell was I thinking writing this one off?

Neko Case - Middle Cyclone. My fave Neko Case album, for sure.
Mine's probably Fox Confessor for all kinds of sentimental/nostalgic reasons, but Middle Cyclone is definitely her last great album... so far.
