    No. 46 should be much higher, Bro. I personally think it's a strong contender for that No. 1 spot.

    I freakin' love the new album, too (Content Nausea). Such a throw back to Velvet Underground, Lou Reed, etc. Can't believe how much I like it really.

    But, yes, SA should be top 5 definitely.

    Indie Cindy makes a list that excludes Spoon, Lykke Li, DFA, and the New Pornographers. Err, okay.

    Oh, so U2 can send tshirts to major music publications but can't spare them for two devoted megafans who know all-things U2, such as band member names?

    I'd love to see Mojo take a crack at naming all the band members' names and instruments. I bet they know less about U2 than Todd Glass.

    I was surprised to not see that on there. I also though that Cult of Fire record came out last year, but regardless glad to see it on here. I'm also surprised not to see the Bolzer EP on there.

    I say yes. A pleasant well produced album. Like A sunnier Sea Change is that makes sense. It's a good listen. The songs just don't really stick with me.
