If you're using Windows 7 or 8, then depending on your sound card, you may be able to record playback with Audacity (http://sourceforge.net/projects/audacity/) using the Windows WASAPI...

Sorry, your post snuck in there before I saw it... I was referring to Third Eye Blind and how their S/T obliterates their sophomore album.

In my book it's the best thing they've done since OLG, even if it still falls notably short of those first two records.

It's consistently good throughout, it just lacks that killer song or two to...

^ So many on that list I considered for mine due to the nostalgia factor and how much I listened to them at the time.

Sounds like a NWFT outtake. Glad my expectations are low these days.

Blue doesn't even belong in the same ballpark, other than "Wounded."

This one was way harder, trying to balance nostalgia, influence/significance, and what I truly enjoy the most now that my tastes have changed a good bit. I tried to represent each of those fairly...

"Strange Terrain" is underrated and definitely a highlight on BSN. Agree that it's the second-best opener behind "Living Together."

I definitely wonder the same... '05 was my HS graduation and then first year of college, so it's almost certainly a factor. I think the only later year where I could easily fill a top 10 and worry...

Pretty fucking good year, like SoundscapeMN said (fitting, since we have a lot of picks in common). I had to leave out a few that I was surprised didn't make the cut. That's saying something, since...

Nice variety of favorites.

On my first listen "AM Amnesia" really jumped out, but I'm actually finding its luster wearing off a little already due to how straightforward it is. "Atom City Queen" is...

Unfortunate but not at all surprising that this isn't getting much attention. Thoughts from those who have listened?

For a long time, I held Fantastic Planet up on a pedestal as far and away their...

I would agree that it's not as diverse as SSTP, but in my opinion, what it lacks in diversity it makes up for in cohesion.

The chord progressions and vocal melodies on HGOS are so adventurous that...

So this is probably about on-par with Set Sail the Prairie, as much as that's saying. Except for the production, which unfortunately is to be expected given the nature of how this...

One rogue mention of that is nothing compared to the fact that The 1975 is going to end up near the top of the composite list lol

The Afterman discs were pretty good compared to their two preceding albums, but I really can't in good conscience put any songs from it in a top 5, probably not even top 10 list. At the end of the...

Probably the first 50+ times I listened to GA:IV, I thought of "Once Upon..." as borderline filler material. Then one day it hit me hard -- that verse riff is genius, in a twisted way. The vocal...

The first three parts of Willing Well are so incredible, I can't believe any fans dislike it. Quintessential Coheed, packing 3-4 songs worth of melody and ideas into one. I guess that could be...

"Guns of Summer" for most unduly trashed Coheed song, by a mile.

Easily better than every single track on NWFT. It's an odd experiment that happens to work well for me. I can see why it falls flat...

NWFT is simply an embarrassment. YOTBR is obviously the weakest of the rest of their catalog, but I don't think it's as bad as its reputation.

Put another way, my gut reaction to NWFT is cringing...

Great record; figured there were about a dozen people in the world who even remember or care about it anymore. Barely missed my list, and now I'm tempted to fit it in somehow since it has support lol.
