Good Neighbors

Neighborhoodies is feeding my addiction and I love them for it.
A couple weeks ago I decided to purchase a bunch of cd's from their fairly new music section. By a bunch I mean 6. To me that's a really big purchase. But thanks to their low prices ($9.99 or $11.99 each, including shipping) and Pitchforkmedia type selection, I picked up cd's that I've been looking at for $66. Two days is what it took to receive my order and I've slowly been digesting them since.

I'm not going to give a run down of these cd's; every possible description has already been posted across the blogosphere. What I am going to do is rank them. My tastes for these albums will most likely change over time, but for now I'm going to try to put them in order by the likelyhood of being inserted into my cd player. Here we go:


Clap Your Hands Say Yeah -
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah



Broken Social Scene -
Broken Social Scene




Okkervil River -
Black Sheep Boy




Wolf Parade -
Apologies to the Queen Mary




Death Cab for Cutie - Plans




New Pornographers - Twin Cinema



There isn't a bad cd out of this bunch, but the order did come to me as sort of a surprise. I would of thought Death Cab would of ranked much higher and had no idea how happy CYH&SY would make me. Each album has a few great tracks (Okkervil River's For Real is my favorite out of the group), but this is how I feel about the albums as a whole.

Okkervil River - For Real.mp3
CYH&SY - Upon This Tidal Wave of Young Blood.mp3
Broken Social Scene - Hotel.mp3
Wolf Parade - Shine a Light.mp3
Death Cab for Cutie - Marching Bands on Manhattan.mp3
New Pornographers - Use It.mp3
