    This record honestly does not feel 2 years old. I know 2 years isn't very old at all, but the record still sounds so fresh and new to me, and I have listened to it, easily, over 100 times. It is also still better than any record released over the past 2 years so far.

    Agreed. I'll get asked what is my favorite album of the year is and I'll say Celebration Rock thinking it still came out this year. Then I'll realize it didn't and then not have an easy answer for that question

    So, I've seen Japandroids twice in Phoenix, AZ... Once at this really tiny joint called The Trunk Space (which either has closed or just closed), and at Sail Inn in Tempe, which has also closed... Small venues for such a fucking amazing band. They played Trunk Space right before they released Celebration Rock and they were trying out their new songs on tiny crowds. Brian's monitor was all fucked up and he thought they sounded awful (but they were outstanding in that little room) - He was so upset about the quality of the Trunk Space that he said the next time they were in town, everyone in the crowd would get in for free. I absolutely REFUSED to let the band pay for my tix when they came to the Sail Inn, and I got a chance to talk to both Brian and Dave after the show. Really kind, really decent, hardworking and talented fellas. I am SO GLAD they're back after three years. EVERYONE should see Japandroids if they get the chance!

    Took this photo at the Sail Inn show. There are few bands that rock as hard as Brian and Dave. I completely agree with everyone in this thread... Japandroids is the real fucking deal.
