Seems like everyone is only choosing albums they love...
So here's one that I was looking forward to and didn't quite deliver...

Favorite: City with no Children
Runner Up: Sprawl II
Underrated: Suburban War
Overall: 6/10 - This was the album that would ultimately break them into the consciousness of the wider population via their grammy win, but as albums go this was a bloated offering that promised a solid theme (suburban middle class life) but lost its way through the middle, incoherence and an overblown tracklist that is about 5 to 6 songs too heavy.
Incidentally I felt a similar way about Reflektor but that one has grown on me a lot (possibly due to seeing stuff live?) but the Suburbs is just a middling album for me. Great stuff like Sprawl, Month of May and City with No Children is bogged down by things liek Roccoco, Modern Man, Wasted Hours and Deep Blue.
