Let's get this thing settled. Both are laying claim to being the big "important" record of the year, yet only one can be king. Who will it be? Only you can decide. Please feel free to cite sources here to back up your argument. Good examples of this would be lyrics, videos, mp3's, pictures, your "feelings" and the like. Bad examples of this would be "why don't you just marry Will and get it over with already, fangirl" or "I swear to God you really are a walrus cock. You don't understand anything about anything". Please try to refrain from using this type of argument, funny as it may be. We are all intellectuals here and we can discuss this intellectually. Or at least till somebody cries.
Also, as a caveat, let me say that I have no idea how I'm going to vote here. Both are actually really good records and are equally worthy for album of the year considerations. Neither swing as hard as King Britt though, so I say Gax5 for the win. But that's another discussion entirely. The question is which act has made the record that Wilco didn't put out? Whom is more deserving of serious critical analysis here. Let's figure this thing out before Radiohead gets here, whaddya say?
PS One of the aforementioned three acts is going to be the best band on the planet come 2009. Mark my words. Who will it be though? Who?
Ok really. Go.
