Dude, Almost Here is so solid. Still listen to it frequently to date. FBR ate my entire freshman year of high school, though. :)
I listened to Lights & Motion the other day because Jason recommended them long ago on his blog and then re-recommended them on the podcast...and I was blown away. Listen to Cyborg Jason. Cyborg Jason knows.
Also been jamming Hostage Calm, The Menzingers, and as always The Traditional.
Been listening to Finch all night. I've always loved "What It Is To Burn", but I had dismissed "Say Hello To Sunshine" for so long simply because it was different. But I've been loving it recently. Not a lot of groups made such a risky, but brilliant jump in sound around that time. It's a shame that album never got a chance to catch on, and we'll never get a true follow-up.
