Such a great read Jason. Thanks for sharing. Couldn't agree more about the generation being tagged Drive Thru kids.

The only thing I would add on is Hidden In Plain View's Life in Dreaming.
Would be #11 for me. With a TEN release being #12. Probably the acoustic EP.

i can still remember buying 'let it enfold you' the day of release(after being leaked for like what 1 year prior) and it came with that hilarious DVD. that will always go down as my favorite cd and the soundtrack to my high school life. every time i listen to the title track i still get chills.

Glad you like. Funny thing is, in a few years -- there's a FBR kids post in me. I can feel it!

Fuckin' right dude.

I loved those DVDs I used to watch the hell out of them.
my friends and i worshiped those dvds. every day after school we would watch the whole thing and just be amazed that there was all this music out there that everyone around us were missing out on.

Add me to the "I bought this album just because it had the Drive-Thru logo on it" list. I found so many good albums just by looking at the little fliers that came with the cds.

great cd, but I wouldn't put on a best of list. i felt if they kept going on, they could've released 'that album' . 'bob and bonnie' is still one of the catchiest songs I've heard.
Oh yeah, I know. In my eyes, there's the 'classics' and the 'others (good or otherwise)', and ACoSS tops the latter, is all I'm saying haha.

But reallly, I'm only 20, so I didn't get to fully appreciate these albums right when they came out; wasn't till a few years later. So I guess my opinion is swayed due to my time frame.

Haha. Let's put that on hold for awhile so it ensures we continue to get new kids into our bands!

Also, it's near impossible to pick a favorite Starting Line release. Not a bad song on any record.

I was the same way about Drive Thru for a good five-or-six years after I graduated from high school in 2000. All I'd have to do is see the logo on a CD and I'd purchase without hearing. I knew I'd enjoy whatever it was because I already loved the rest of the label's roster. Those bands played a huge role in my post-high school "who the Hell am I?" phase, and still get regular play on my iPod and spotify.

I'm pretty sure my top ten list would very closely resemble Jason's, only maybe with Say It Like You Mean It as my Starting Line record, finding a way to shove that Senses Fail EP in there, and also Day At The Fair's The Rocking Chair Years tacked on as well.
