I agree, though, "Slow Burn" is one of his best. Really dig that track.

1. Achtung Baby, U2
2. Pop, U2
3. Boy, U2
4. In Rainbows, Radiohead
5. Doolittle, Pixies
6. It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back, Pub;ic Enemy
7. The La's, The La's
8. Magical Mystery Tour, The Beatles
9. The Doors, The Doors
10. Elephant, The White Stripes

If U2 were not included, everything would move up 3 spots, and my 8, 9 & 10 would be On Avery Island (Neutral Milk Hotel), The Seldom Seen Kid (Elbow) and Bringing It All Back Home (Bob Dylan) in that order.

Nice to see some love for Neon Bible. That's my favorite Arcade Fire album and one that a lot of people seem to overlook.

The title track, Heathen (The Rays), might be my favorite Bowie tune.

Thank you, I agree, I think it's their best record, but I quite enjoy all of their albums.  Reflektor was good, but a slight disappointment.  One of my favorite bands and one of the best live acts I've seen.

Man, I listened to Reflektor some weeks ago for the first time since it came out and it was just unbelievably boring and way too long. At least the suburbs had half a dozen good to great tracks.
