    Honestly, a singles comp. Dare is such a fucking great album though, and it will be reissued in April with the nearly-as-good Fascination! ep and assorted era-appropriate miscellany.

    Their first two albums are some divinely sinister leaning synth pop and contains some of my favorite songs of the genre. Although, there's only really one album's worth of good songs between the two, but get them anyway. Reproduction and Travelogue.

    Thanks for these recommendations, guys - I just now noticed them. I almost bought a used vinyl copy of Fascination! at Amoeba the other day but decided against it, so maybe I'll check to see if it's still there.

    They are good, if you are into that sort of thing. I find them fun but thats about it. Mean Everything to Nothing is their best album imo.

    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    Sure, sure. I was just pointing out that he shouldn't give up on the band if he wasn't feeling Different Class.

    I can't listen to Pulp right now. Not until I secure a ticket for the Pomona show on Friday. If I get all excited about them but then get shut out it'll be too painful.

    Ten is their classic, but I think I prefer Vitalogy. The first four to five albums are all varying degrees of awesome, depending on how much earnestness and classic rock bombast you can take. I can take a lot, and I love them.
