    Default Best Album by Each Band

    I couldn't find a thread that was doing this for 2013 but I've seen it in past years and it seemed to help a lot of people out, including myself. Post the best album or the album you think is most worth checking out by each band on the lineup (or just a band you think some might not know much about).

    Portugal. The Man - Church Mouth
    Yeasayer - All Hour Cymbals
    Aesop Rock - Labor Days
    Danny Brown - XXX

    13 really? 13?

    Definitely in the bottom half of the Blur catalog. Though 'No Distance Left To Run' is pretty rad.

    Parklife is far and away considered their best record. Great Escape and Leisure are great as well.

    The Stone Roses - The Stone Roses
    Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Fever To Tell
    Modest Mouse - The Moon And Antarctica (Agree, a near masterpiece, but LCW one of most overrated LPs of last 20 years...three great songs and a ton of slop)
    Grinderman - Take Your pick - I has better best songs and wicked humor (great best songs), II is a more consistent and more instrumentally impressive effort but as second cover implies, more menacing than funny.
    Beach House - Teen Dream
    Stars - Set Yourself On Fire
    Foals - Total Life Forever

    The Xx - The debut 10x better than follow up
    Sigur Ros - Takk
    Hot Chip - The Warning
    Grizzly Bear - Veckatimest
    Bat For Lashes - Fur and Gold
    Janelle Monae - The ArchAndroid II & III
    El-P - I'm partial to latest Cancer 4 Cure
    Franz Ferdinad - s/t debut

    RHCP - In minority here, but I love the 2006 double way more than Blood Sugar Sex Magic, just a JF showcase
    Nick Cave - Who knows, but for a 50 year old, his recent years have been incredibly productive, last release Dig Lazarus Dig was great, like it and Abatoir a lot more than Murder Ballads but his discography is vast.
    Vampire Weekend - The s/t debut
    Tame Impala - Lonerism is an incredibly forward looking approach on psychedelic music, but I find it really lacks momentum and am personally partial to Innerspeaker even though Lonerism is a much more unique effort and sonically amazing.
    The Gaslight Anthem - The '59 Sound but in honesty, this is one of those bands where every song truly does sound the same - one of the least impressive and unwarranted ask backs in recent memory - very average live act - which is surprising giving the Springsteeny earnestness of their songs.
    Thee Oh Sees - Tons of material, but I really liked last years Carrion Crawler/The Dream Double EP - two or three barn burners in there I hope to hear on the polo fields.

    Of all the Diiv albums, that one is for sure their best one.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    Of course the Banana album from the VU is a top 20 all-timer.
