    I like them pretty equally, but I've listened to Veckatimest a good 20 times more than I've listened to Bitte Orca, so it's hard to say. I have a feeling these two will be battling it out for the #2 spot on my best of 2009 list.

    Why do you care? Furthermore the reviews weren't written by the same critic, so your point is moot.

    Same website, and as you said yourself, the staff reaches a consensus that the review represents the website and, thus, everyone who works there. So yes, the asshole who spent the majority of his review talking about Ed Drosde's twitter is cool with that score.
    Upcoming Shows:
    * Dillon Francis + Anamanaguchi -- December 28th

    Going to Weekend 1 of Coachella 2014

    No, what I said was that the staff reaches a consensus as to what gets Best New Music. The individual critic picks his own score, thus meaning that it gets you nowhere to compare the Veckatimest score to the Bitte Orca score. It could be that the guy who wrote the Bitte Orca review thinks Veckatimest is a 9.5.

    And really, can't we just be happy for Dirty Projectors? Veckatimest debuted at #8; it's clear that album was going to be a phenomenon no matter what. But Dirty Projectors will really benefit from this attention, and that's great. I love the album and have a feeling it could slip to my #1 of 2009 by year's end. It might not be quite as accomplished as Merriweather Post Pavilion or Veckatimest, but I have a really strong affection for it.

    It's a hell of an album. Definitely top 5 for the year.

    So far the album reminds me a little bit of Battles' album, but some songs are sticking out upon first listen (it took me a few listens to get into Battles). I'll have to listen to Bitte Orca a few times to really appreciate it. "Two Doves" has become an instant classic for me though. I could definitely see this as a contender against Veckatimest (which for me, has beat out Merriweather) for album of the year.

    Is this a great year for music or what? Animal Collective, The Horrors, Dirty Projectors, Grizzly Bear, Phoenix, St. Vincent... This is getting ridiculous! I hope Massive Attack and Gorillaz don't drop the torch!

    Hahah... seriously!

    I always love the odd years. I knew this year was going to be lovely. 2003, 2005, 2007, those are the finest years of the decade for me. Kinda funny how everyone has my same 3 favorite albums of the year though. I have no originality this year.

    Someone tell me how good DP are live. I need some convincing to drive my ass all the way up to LA for their Troubadour show for the umpteenth time. I mean, any show at the Troub is going to be great, but I need to know if DP are really something special in concert (and I have a feeling they are).

    I haven't seen them but I've heard a bajillion stories about them being a force to be reckoned with live. So probably worth it.

    I only saw them early in the day at Pitchfork last year, but they were astounding. So much better live than on album. And they did a few of the songs from this one. I can't wait for the Troub show, and I just hope it doesn't sell out.

    Sort of complicated, but I decided against it... I thought it would be more worth it to see Animal Collective from up close, in short.

    Saw Dirty Projectors open for TVOTR a couple weeks ago. Had no idea what they were about. Was blown away. Definitely worth a drive.

    I think I'm pretty much in for the Troubadour show, after listening to all of Morning Better Last! tonight, which was a fucking great album... I'm just in the mood. I will not be buying my ticket yet though because I am currently without a job and am short on money. So if it sells out, I am out of luck.

    Yes because I'm clearly a jackass about Animal Collective everywhere I go and it's not like you CLEARLY IMAGINE THESE THINGS or something as insane as that may be.

    Hey Pancakes - what about the SD show July 9th @ The Casbah? Are you going to go to that show? It will save you the drive to LA....
