– Acoustic side project is an excellent change of pace from this Lawrence Arms member.

#25

Band Of Horses “Cease To Begin” (Sub Pop)

– Not quite as enthralling as the band’s debut but a solid sophomore effort. The band is building into a powerhouse.

– Who needs the Drive-By Truckers. Jason Isbell certainly does not.

#23

– A classic album with the band’s original line-up back together. Who says reunions are a bad thing?

#22

Menomena “Friend And Foe” (Barsuk)

Friend And Foe lacked the critical acclaim of the band’s first record but it was just as good.

#21

Les Savy Fav “Let’s Stay Friends” (French Kiss)

– Six years of waiting was quite enough. A joyful return for Les Savy Fav.
