Whenever this band does decide to give it up, they should record the entirety of Songs From the Black Hole as their swan song. Guaranteed great final album.

Modest Mouse, Kanye West, Brand New, and now Radiohead are all (probably) putting out new material soon... we're in for some great, and possibly classic, releases.

He's at $58... I think most of us could get that much in the same amount of time, even if we've never recorded anything before.

If we could chop off Relient K's first and last albums, they'd make my list. And Kevin Devine deserves a shoutout aside from his debut.
