ALBUMS

Mass Romantic

Release Year: 2000
My Rating: B


Some folks say this is a classic, but it never has been for me. It ain't bad - pretty good even - but compared with what they'd do in the future it feels like a pilot album.

HIGHLIGHTS: "Mass Romantic", "Letter from an Occupant"

The Electric Version

Release Year: 2003
My Rating: A+


Is it just me, or is THIS the best New Pornographers album? It's just perfect, every track. I mean, Mass Romantic was good and all - I understand why folks loved it - but it hasn't aged as well as The Electric Version. Everything hits on all cylinders here.

HIGHLIGHTS: "The Laws Have Changed", "All For Swinging You Around", "Testament to Youth in Verse"

Twin Cinema

Release Year: 2005
My Rating: A-


Twin Cinema was the milestone that guaranteed this band was more than just a novelty act. Though a few of the tracks are filler, mostly it's fantastic.

HIGHLIGHTS: "Twin Cinema", "The Bleeding Heart Show", "Jackie, Dressed in Cobras", "Sing Me Spanish Techno", "Streets of Fire"

Challengers

Release Year: 2007
My Rating: A-


The one where they show their softer, baroque side. Plus, Dan Bejar contributes the best Pixies song since Doolittle...

HIGHLIGHTS: "My Right Versus Yours", "Challengers", "Myriad Harbour", "Adventures in Solitude"
